Peru Reinforces Police in Fight against Drug Trafficking and Terrorism

first_imgBy Dialogo August 31, 2012 Peru’s National Police will be reinforced with new weapons and equipment in order to carry out the fight against drug trafficking and terrorism, as part of a larger investment in security that the government is implementing, said the Peruvian Interior Minister on August 29. The government is committed to equip the police to improve the fight against drugs and crime; to that end we have a fairly significant investment for the infrastructure and equipment in the order of 640 million soles (about U.S. $ 240 million), said Interior Minister Wilfredo Pedraza. Weapons have not been purchased (for the police) in 25 years. We are in the process of defining what type of weapons will be acquired, but they will be similar to those of the Armed Forces, the official pointed out. In addition to weapons, the plan includes new equipment and communications systems to improve the way problems of public safety and police intervention in social conflicts are addressed. The police will also have new deterrent weapons to try to avoid fatalities that are produced in social conflicts, Pedraza added. Peru’s national police did not have the proper equipment to address the country’s current challenges of security and narco-terrorism. Now it will rely on equipment that it never had before, said National Police Director Raúl Salazar. The police chief indicated that there will be lightweight assault rifles like the ones used by the Armed Forces, although the caliber has not yet been defined. “In the moment of a confrontation, drug dealers do not discriminate between military or police” he emphasized.last_img read more

Anthony Joshua prefers Wilder fight

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Anthony Joshua, Okolie plot world title double Anthony Joshua wants Tyson Fury, Wilder fight Anthony Joshua is as hungry to unify the heavyweight division as fans are to see him try, revealing he would prioritise a Deontay Wilder bout over meeting Tyson Fury in the ring. The Watford-born champion cruised to victory in his rematch with Andy Ruiz earlier this month – putting him back on course for an iconic clash with either of the other ‘big three’ members. Fury and Wilder will fight for the second time in February, with the ‘Gypsy King’ challenging for the American’s WBC belt – while Joshua holds the IBO, IBF, WBO and WBA belts. Joshua was asked which of his rivals he would prefer to fight next: “I really don’t know. Either one of them, it doesn’t matter. “The preference would be the champion Wilder because it’s a championship fight, but Fury is so talented as well and it’s the best of British so why not? I’ll fight either one of them. “The dream would be to go for the fifth belt in 2020.” Wilder has voiced his doubts over the unification bout, and was highly critical of Joshua’s careful tactics in the ring against Ruiz. However, with Joshua’s audience figures dwarfing the American’s in his recent Luis Ortiz fight, Wilder can’t sniff at the opportunity of taking on Joshua. The ‘Bronze Bomber’s’ Fury saga is expected to become a trilogy, after the pair reached a split-decision draw at the end of 12 thrilling rounds in their first bout a year ago. Joshua re-ignited talk of fighting either man with his dominant unanimous decision win against Ruiz in Saudi Arabia, showing outstanding mental strength to reverse his embarrassing defeat to the Mexican in the summer. Talking on the shock loss, he said: “I feel that if you always look back you can always find a reason as to why you could have done things better, but honestly, I just got beaten by the better man. “I have to take it on the chin and do it better next time.”Tags: Anthony JoshuaDeontay WilderTyson Furylast_img read more
