Homophobic crime increasing in Nicaragua

first_imgNo related posts. By David Hutt |  Special to The Tico TimesLEÓN, Nicaragua – The brutal murder of Lenin Moisés Bermúdez last month in the colonial capital of León has been a constant talking point for the Nicaraguan press. Investigators initially believed Bermúdez, openly gay, was a victim of a hate crime. Marcelo Martínez, coordinator of the Sexual Diversity Collective of León, an organization that fights for rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, announced that it was the second hate crime in the city this year. After some good police work, Wilman Wilfredo Sevilla, 19, was arrested for the crime and confessed to the murder. He allegedly stabbed Bermúdez almost 20 times with a piece of broken glass. According to the defendant, he arrived at the home of Bermúdez to exchange sex for money. But the victim asked for too much, an argument ensued, Bermúdez was stabbed and Sevilla fled after stealing a laptop and an iPhone. The leading prosecutor in the case, Freddy Trujillo, does not believe Sevilla’s version of the crime. Speaking at a preliminary hearing, Trujillo said the crime was premeditated and directed against a helpless victim. Whatever the outcome of the case, the murder was on the minds of delegates who met in late October in Managua during the Second Central American Conference for Sexual Diversity. Among the many speakers at the conference was Samira Montiel, ombudswoman for sexual diversity, a position connected to the State’s Attorney for the Defense of Human Rights, created three years ago to protect the rights of more than half a million LGBT Nicaraguans.According to Montiel, government statistics show that in the first nine months of this year, five people have been killed and six have been physically or sexually assaulted as a result of alleged homophobia. This means there has been a 50 percent increase in homophobic violence since 2011. Homophobic Culture or Institutions?But what are the causes of this increase?Away from the conference, LGBT rights organizations protested outside the offices of TV Channel 10 after the station broadcast an inappropriate “joke” on the show “Margarita te voy a Contar.” Demonstrators say the TV channel’s stunt encouraged violence against homosexuals. A statement on the website of the Homosexual Community of Nicaragua, an online organization for LGBT news, stated: “violence increases every day in our country… particularly against homosexual people. We believe that it is wrong to promote the culture of violence and aggression, and we hold Channel 10 responsible for consequences resulting from actions as irresponsible as those promoted on the TV show.” However, some say it would be wrong to place blame on Nicaraguan culture. Montiel sees the country’s society as being one of the region’s most liberal. “Nicaragua has always been considered one of the countries with high levels of tolerance, with high levels of respect for our community,” she said.She also expressed optimism that Nicara-gua will “not tolerate this wave of violence.” According to Montiel, the source of the problems lie in Nicaragua’s institutions, namely religious organizations and police. The dramatic increase in homophobic crimes is linked to the “radical discourse of many religious denominations” against homosexuals, the ombudswoman said during the conference. She also criticized police officers who respond to allegations of homophobic violence, saying, “Many officers continue taking these allegations as if they were a joke. Often if one goes to the police to file a complaint because someone threw rocks in the street, the police say it’s wrong to be gay.”Proving a crime was motivated by homophobia is difficult in Nicaragua, since  records of victims do not include sexual preference.The stance of the government is also not without criticism. In March, Nicaraguan lawmakers drafted a new Family Code with the strict definition of a family as a union of man and woman. However, the Sandinista government has made positive strides since returning to power in 2006. In 2008, the government decriminalized homosexual relations. Changes also were made within the Health Ministry to provide health care without discrimination in hospitals. Also, the Sandinistas in 2009 created Montiel’s position as an ombudswoman for sexual diversity. “In Latin America, the principal advances in the area of respect for sexual diversity have come from governments on the left, so we can’t expect anything less from this government,” Montiel said in an interview with the online English news site Nicaragua Dispatch.

The ultimate travel hack to prevent beach theft – and more Costa

The ultimate travel hack to prevent beach theft – and more Costa

first_imgTips for meaningful travel in Costa Rica As part of our March Print Edition and in support ofour redoubled efforts to provide readers with useful information about safety in Costa Rica, we consulted a group of people with ample experience in Costa Rican tourism to offer their top tips for a safe visit to Costa Rica. Scroll down to learn more about our panelists and their projects.What did we miss? What advice do you give to first-time visitors? We’d love to hear at editorial@ticotimes.net.What are your top overall safety tips for travel in Costa Rica?Melania Cubero: If you arrive at a bus stop or airport late in the night, make sure you have already organized transport and accommodation with someone trustworthy. Keep your expensive camera equipment hidden when you’re out and about, and do not leave your things unattended. Don’t walk alone at night.Perry Gladstone: Do not bring anything irreplaceable. Most beaches have dangerous rip currents; learn how to escape when caught, and do not enter water past the waist without lifeguards present.What’s the biggest safety-related mistake you’ve made while in Costa Rica, or that you’ve seen someone else make?MC: People walking in dark and unsafe areas with expensive equipment – for example, near the Coca Cola bus terminal [in San José].Christopher Howard: Be careful of scamsters. Just because someone speaks English doesn’t mean that he or she is honest. Bottom line: If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.Colin Brownlee: I was once distracted at a bus stop while a friend of the person who distracted me took my bag.What specific safety tips do you have surrounding driving in Costa Rica? CH: It’s like playing a video game.CB: Get a chip for your phone at the Kolbi counter at arrivals at the airport, use Waze and don’t rent GPS from rental car companies; it’s expensive, and much of the information is outdated.  Don’t leave bags in your car unattended. Be wary of anyone trying to get you to stop on roadside, and always ask about parking safety [when leaving your car].PG: Avoid night driving in rural areas, because people walk, dogs sleep and many kinds of animals cross the road. Observe speed limits. Roads are not well engineered: frequent lane endings, impatient drivers, cars parked on blind curves and more create dangerous conditions.Public transportation? CH: Excellent and cheap. Just watch your belongings, don’t eat anything given to you by a stranger and be careful of pickpockets.CB: Always be aware of your bags while on bus and at stations. Thieves are more interested in your carry-on then your under-the-bus stuff. They know the good stuff is in your carry-on.

Here’s the first question to ask Bocas on a budget: How to get to Bocas del Toro from Costa Rica Are there any products, apps or items on a packing list that you recommend that help make travel in Costa Rica safer? MC: Travel insurance! If you’re going to drive – Waze is really useful in Costa Rica!CB: I have a decoy wallet I use sometimes with expired credit cards and photocopied money; I use it when I am concerned. If someone steals that, they are gone. They don’t look for anything else. Old non-functioning cell phones work well as decoys, too. Sometimes when going for a dip, I keep my valuables that I took to the beach wrapped in a rolled up diaper. Trust me: No one will pick that up.What efforts would you like to see, or are you a part of, to make life or travel safer in your neighborhood or region?PG: [I helped develop] Ojos en la Calle [a community vigilance network and anonymous reporting app].MC: More safety information at all the rivers and seas where there is a high concentration of tourists. In national parks, they don’t offer information about where or how to call emergency services, like for example a snake bite, if you get lost or injured… I think that this is very important.CB: Community efforts work best.  Puerto Viejo has had a security channel on Telegram that disperses information immediately, resulting in quicker identification and apprehension… The most important thing [for tourism industry employers] is to get local people jobs, and if they don’t have skills, train them. Always ask yourself, “How can I be a part of the solution?About Our PanelPerry Gladstone is president of the Costa Ballena Chamber of Tourism and Commerce, Lifeguards Association and co-founder of the SOMOS Foundation, which supports and operates community security and development programs in the southern zone. Equally at home in the air or on the water, Perry is an avid surfer, paraglider, musician and former record holder in the sport of freediving. Melania Cubero is a wellness travel designer. She is also the founder of Unplug, a travel agency focused on wellness travel). Christopher Howard has lived in Costa Rica for 39 years and is a naturalized Costa Rican citizen. He has written 14 travel-related guidebooks and Spanish language books. He has also conducted monthly relocation and retirement tours for over 20 years. Colin Brownlee is a self-described “soon-to-be senior gay man” from Canada who settled in Puerto Viejo in 2005. He owns and runs a few successful businesses including a hotel, restaurant, travel agency and marketing agency, which employ about 50 people. Despite its challenges, he loves Costa Rica so much so that he became a citizen. He finds Costa Rica anything but dull, and even after almost 15 years here, he is in a constant state of feeling “the glass is half full.” This story was made possible thanks to The Tico Times 5% Club.

Also, do not swim near the mouth of rivers since crocodiles tend to gather there.MC: Always ask if it’s safe to swim before entering the water.CB: Make sure you choose areas to enjoy the beach that have people around. Only take what you need to the beach. Don’t take your passport, money or credit cards. Always ask your hotel about beach safety.Hiking?CH: Take a compass, cell phone, sunscreen, plenty of water, adequate clothing, and insect repellent.MC: It’s always best to hike accompanied. Before setting off on a path, tell someone where you plan to go and when you plan to return. Wear appropriate footwear, bring sufficient water and snacks, and pay a lot of attention to where you put your feet: never stray from the paths.Food and water safety?CB: If you have allergies, always assume that the server does not understand your questions about ingredients. It’s best to negotiate food allergies with your hotel ahead of time and get a sense of whether they can accommodate your needs.  Most water in Costa Rica is potable, but always ask [when in a new location] – and if you have sensitive stomach, stay away from street food.last_img read more

Dani Alves has asked to leave Juventus the Italian champions’ chief Giuseppe Marotta said on Wednesday as reports gather pace that the Brazilian is set to reunite with former coach Pep Guardiola at Manchester City Alves 34 had a spectacular impact in his only campaign in Serie A after eight trophy-laden seasons at Barcelona helping the Italian team to a league and cup double and playing a crucial role in driving them to the Champions League final where they lost 4-1 to Real Madrid The flamboyant Brazilian’s relationship with the club began to deteriorate after the defeat in Cardiff however and his recent behaviour has angered supporters Last week Alves said in an interview with Brazilian TV that Juventus forward Paolo Dybala needs to leave the Serie A giants one day in order to improve as a player On Monday he further baffled fans by posting a picture of his boots from Barcelona’s 3-1 win over Juve in the 2015 Champions League final on his Instagram account and Marotta revealed Alves had asked for a way out of his two-year contract with the club “Dani Alves has decided that he wants to change his surroundings so we will come to a mutual agreement and we wish him luck” Marotta told reporters on Wednesday quoted in daily Gazzetta dello Sport “There has been no break-up with Dani but motivation is fundamental for any footballer” British media have reported that the Brazil international is on the verge of agreeing a two-year deal with City as part of Guardiola’s attempts to rebuild his side for his second season in England by bolstering their options at full

Published: January 27 2015 12:37 am Related News The visit of an incumbent US president twice and as chief guest on India’s Republic Day for the first time ever is in and of itself significant Anyone with even a nodding acquaintance of foreign and security policy will know that bilateral relations with the US constitute one of the more important if not the most important bilateral relationships for India Only the uninitiated or those who habitually make assessments based on flawed assumptions and a profound misreading of where the world is headed would suggest otherwise The visit was important not only for the elevation of Indo-US ties for their own sake but also for the efforts at seeking convergence in areas other than bilateral those relating to stability and security in the Asia-Pacific and Indian Ocean regions particularly as reflected in the US-India joint strategic vision document As the world’s two largest democracies India and the US have worked over the last two decades to develop relations that have evolved steadily There are nearly 40 dialogue mechanisms in place demonstrating both the wide canvas and depth of the relationship It is useful to set aside the hype that usually accompanies summit-level interactions of this kind and seek a clinical perspective This necessarily requires ignoring commentators who are pathologically anti-US and those who salivate too easily at the prospect of doing business with the US The US is the world’s largest economy with a GDP of $18 trillion or more twice the size of the Chinese economy and nearly 10 times the Indian economy which has a GDP of less than $2 trillion Less than a year ago as a chief minister in election mode Narendra Modi had to be persuaded to receive the then US ambassador under instructions from Washington to signal a change of attitude when it became clear that the chief minister subject to a visa denial for over a decade would be the next prime minister of India Managing bilateral relations has not been easy The relationship has been accident prone Ever so often it comes to be viewed as being transactional rather than the strategic partnership it is billed to be What is important is the need to rescue the relationship from its lows and inject substance and content to give it traction that will generate momentum And here the pointers are positive Both President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Modi have called for forging deeper ties Obama has gone a step further He has said the relationship can be the defining partnership of the 21st century The election of the first African-American president of the US in 2008 was welcomed the world over as a celebration of democracy Two years before he steps down as the 44th president he looks good both in terms of his domestic achievements as well as his foreign policy record The election of Modi as India’s 15th prime minister was similarly a major cause of celebration in the world’s largest democracy The rest is history The newly elected prime minister displayed visionary statesmanship He readily accepted the invitation to visit Washington in September 2014 During that visit it was decided to establish a contact group to rescue the India-US civilian nuclear deal which Modi described as the cornerstone of a transformed relationship That group has accomplished in four months what could not be done in four years Still more important this has been accomplished without the need to revisit India’s domestic legislation on nuclear liability A categorical statement to that effect from Modi along with the assertion that what has been achieved is consistent with India’s international obligations should put at rest the continued whining and doubts of those who suggest that there has been a dilution of India’s position Commercial operationalisation will hopefully follow The solution found is market-based and innovative based on international best practices to suit Indian circumstances The government will indeed be contributing to the insurance pool for the first few years till the insurance companies are able to maintain it on their own However this will be an investment and the government will earn a share of the premium on this investment The profits if any go to the pool whose size will grow with time thus assuring easy and prompt payments The impact on the power plant’s cost would be minimal Even in the US operators pay an average of $1 million per year per site a small fraction of the total cost There will be no additional burden on the Indian taxpayer Whatever risk exists will be addressed through a risk management scheme This is where the insurance pool becomes important More work however remains to be done We will need to utilise the remaining two years of Obama’s terms to persuade the US to do the heavy lifting required to help us achieve full membership of the Export Control Regimes the Nuclear Suppliers’ Group the Missile Technology Control Regime the Australia Group and the Wassenaar Arrangement The decision to renew the decade-old defence cooperation agreement is significant This was expected and is again a pointer to the direction in which the two countries wish to develop relations The identification of four pathfinder projects for joint development and production under the Defence Technology and Trade Initiative should also not be dismissed lightly It could be the beginning of something significant if handled well A much greater challenge will lie in how enhanced economic cooperation investment and technology from foreign suppliers can be made to contribute to the “Make in India” campaign — especially since both countries want to give a boost to their manufacturing sector in an overall global climate of falling demand The UPA’s prime minister for 10 years Manmohan Singh often lamented that summit-level decisions are not followed up by our line ministries Will that change now that we have an elected prime minister heading a

planning to make the junction signal-free It will definitely cut my travel time by half” said Ranjan a resident of Rahatni The PCMC had not planned to build the grade separator at first Instead the plan was to build a flyover for commuters heading to Kiwale The separator only came into the picture when the PCMC observed that a sizeable number of commuters most of them heading to Wakad and Hinjewadi were passing through Sai Chowk “That is when we planned a grade separator towards Wakad while the flyover will be built along the Aundh-Kiwale BRST road” said a civic official The PCMC
