#AceNewsReport – Feb.21: Wells Fargo’s board of directors said it is firing four senior managers as part of its investigation into the bank’s sales practices scandal ABC News reported on Tuesday

The board said the decision was unanimous.

The board also voted to deny any 2016 bonuses to the executives, and they will forfeit any unvested stock and stock options.

LONDON: 19:43:21/02/17: UK House of Commons Passes #Magnitsky Amendment Allowing Human Rights Violators’ to have their Assets Frozen – #AceNewsDesk – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Feb.21: Press Release For Immediate Distribution 21 February 2017 – Today the UK House of Commons unanimously passed the UK Magnitsky Sanctions legislation.

The Magnitsky Sanctions legislation was voted on as part of the UK Criminal Finances Bill. It will allow the British government to freeze assets of human rights abusers in the UK. The Magnitsky Sanctions amendment which passed was submitted by UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd.

“The new Magnitsky Sanctions Legislation is going to cause perceptible fear for kleptocrats in Russia and other authoritarian regimes. They all have expensive properties in London and think they are untouchable,” said William Browder, leader of the global Magnitsky Justice Campaign and author of “Red Notice: How I Became Putin’s No 1 Enemy.

“This effort is the result of seven years of advocacy in the name of the late Sergei Magnitsky who uncovered and testified about the US$230 million corruption scheme perpetrated by Russian officials and was killed for his whistle-blowing,” said William Browder.

“Should the House of Lords pass this into law, the UK will be the second country in Europe to pass Magnitsky sanctions and will set a strong example for the rest of Europe,” said William Browder.

The new UK Magnitsky sanctions legislation introduces gross human rights abuse as part of the unlawful conduct, to which civil recovery powers can now be applied under Part 5 of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002.

The UK Magnitsky legislation protects those who “have sought to expose the illegal activity carried out by a public official or a person acting in an official capacity, or to obtain, exercise, defend or promote human rights and fundamental freedoms.” (full text here).

Sergei Magnitsky was a Russian lawyer who uncovered the massive corruption perpetrated systematically by Russian officials and organized criminals, which included thefts from the Russian treasury, including the theft of US$230 million in 2007. Instead of pursuing the officials who approved the thefts, the Russian government arrested Sergei Magnitsky and put him in pre-trial detention, where he was tortured for 358 days and killed at the age of 37. All officials implicated in his torture and the multi-million dollar thefts have been exonerated.

In response to the impunity demonstrated by the Magnitsky case in Russia, the US passed the Russia-focused Magnitsky Act enacting US asset freezes and visa bans in 2012 and the Global Magnitsky Act which applies to human rights violators around the world in 2016. Estonia passed its Global Magnitsky Act legislation in 2016. Currently, Canada and the EU are considering their own versions of Magnitsky sanctions as well.

“The new UK Magnitsky Legislation deals with asset freezing on human rights abusers. We will continue to campaign for visa sanctions on human rights abusers in the UK under separate legislation,” said Magnitsky campaign leader William Browder.

MOSCOW, RUSSIA. 21/02/17: EXPORTS WEAPONS TO MORE THAN 60 COUNTRIES, ANNUAL SALES AMOUNT TO $13-$15 BILLION – DEFENCE AND AT 16:48: Russian Defense Ministry to Spend Over $24-Billion on State Arms Procurement Program in 2017 – Deputy Defence Minister – #AceNewsDesk reports – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Feb.21: The rising arms race is fuelling more and more arms sales across the world and the main players have changed recently with Russia taking top spot over what once was the USA .. Take a look at Global Security’s and Rosoboronexport’s recent figures …. Then the Press Release on our link below …

roe.gifRussia’s state-run arms exporter Rosoboronexport accounts for 85% of the country’s arms sales worldwide [as of 2010], with the remainder coming from several companies authorized to deal in arms on the global market. Only Russia’s state-run arms exporter Rosoboronexport is entitled to export the whole range of military items, including fully assembled equipment. Another 21 engineering companies and manufacturers are also vested with the status of a separate “entity in military-technical cooperation,” which allows it to “carry out foreign trade activities concerning military equipment,” but these are allowed to export only spare parts, disassembled equipment and carry out service maintenance.

Considering rich experience accumulated by NPO Mashinostroyenia in military and technical cooperation with foreign countries, successful implementation of several contracts with foreign customers, availability of divisions and services responsible for military and technical cooperation in the company’s structure, in 1977 the Russian government issued a directive to grant FSUE “NPO Mashinostroyenia” a right to carry out independent export operations with military products for the period of three years, i.e from that moment the company could directly without governmental mediator conclude contracts with foreign partners and bear full responsibility for their implementation. After assessment of the positive results of the company’s work in the area of military and technical cooperation within 1997-2000, when the company had the right of independent export operations, the Russian President extended these authorities till 2007 by his decree dated 09.08.2000. In 2006 the Russian president decree granted the right to JSC MIC NPO Mashinostroyenia to carry out independent export operations with military products from the moment of its state registration.

Throughout the 1990s two state arms exporters existed in Russia, Rosvooruzheniye State Corporation and Promexport. The two enterprises merged in November 2000 to form a federal state unitary enterprise, Rosoboronexport State Corporation (ROE). As the single state intermediary agency Rosoboronexport became responsible for exporting and importing defense, military, and dual-purpose products, as well as technologies and services. The creation of ROE aimed to restructure the military and technical system of coordination between foreign states and the Russian Federation. Rosoboronexport’s main goals were to ascertain and enhance long term relationships with foreign customers, and to advance Russia’s standing in the international arms market.

Rosoboronexport was placed under the control of the Federal Service of Military-Technical Cooperation (FSVTS) in 2003, which was subsequently removed from the Ministry of Defense (MoD) and subordinated directly to the President. Later, in 2006, Rosoboronexport was subordinated to the newly-created Military-Industrial Commission (MIC). In all likelihood, experts believed the ROE would serve as the MIC’s agency to regulate the defense industrial sector.

In addition, Rosoboronexport developed a close working relationship with the MoD as the two made attempts to improve certain aspects of the defense sector. Together they worked towards increasing control over the trade of conventional weapons, raising funds for future R&D projects via arms sales, supplied the armed forces with hardware and training, and offered to build an effective security system with other members of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) through military-technical cooperation, often at subsidized prices

On April 28, 2004 a Presidential decree appointed Sergey V. Chemezov as Director General of Rosoboronexport. Chemezov had acted as Director General of Promexport prior to the merger, and was named the First Deputy Director General of Rosoboronexport upon its conception.

The basic trade activities of Rosoboronexport include:

  • Exportation / importation of the state’s array of available military and dual-purpose products and services
  • Organization of licensed armament and military equipment production abroad
  • Maintenance and repairs of weapons, armaments, and military equipment supplied to customers
  • Modernization of armaments and military equipment made in Russia
  • Training of foreign specialists to operate and maintain supplied material in Russia and customer countries
  • Technical assistance in building military infrastructure installations, such as defense enterprises, airfields, depots, firing grounds, training centers, etc.
  • Promotion of innovative high-technology civil-purpose products developed by Russian defense industry enterprises

As the main state agency for arms sales Rosoboronexport role within the political, economic, and industrial framework of Russia has increased substantially. Russian arms exports have soared, growing from $3.7 billion in 2000 to $5.8 billion in 2004 and from $7.5 billion in 2007. In 2005 ROE announced plans to take a more active role in the management of the nation’s vertical integrated holding companies. By the end of 2006 export sales had reached an annual level of $5-6 billion, which represented the main source of funds for R&D and procurement programs. In addition, it was estimated that 70-90 of critical defense companies’ production and revenue was related to the exportation of systems or spare parts.

By the beginning of 2007 Rosoboronexport had expanded its authority into the civilian sector. This included the takeover and integration of firms in the automobile and metallurgical sectors. Rumors circulated that the shipbuilding industry was next on the list.

Director General Chemezov announced the formation of Rosoboronexport’s own holding company, OPK (United Industrial Corporation) Oboronprom, which was formed in 2002 as a closed joint-stock company in which ROE held a significant share. A series of presidential decrees in 2004 and 2005 listed the company as one of Russia’s strategic enterprises and later granted it the status of parent management and holding company within the helicopter sector. Oboronprom actively encouraged the process of forming these large, vertically integrated firms in the aircraft, helicopter, shipbuilding, missile-building, and defensive systems sectors. Rosoboronexport sought to increase its influence in these industries via Oboronprom’s injection of managers and purchasing of their shares.

On August 4, 2006, the U.S. State Department announced sanctions against Rosoboronexport (and the aircraft manufacturer Sukhoi) for alleged violations of the Iran Nonproliferation Act of 2000, thereby barring U.S. companies from dealing with those Russian entities for two years. Russian officials denounced the action as retaliation for their Venezuelan arms sales. In December 2006, over Russian protests, the sanctions against Rosoboronexport were reconfirmed for two more years (although sanctions against Sukhoi were lifted).

In May 2010, the United States lifted sanctions against Rosoboronexport that it had earlier blacklisted from tendering for U.S. arms deals. The sanctions were imposed in 2006 after the U.S. government accused Rosoboronexport of violating the nuclear non-proliferation regime. Despite the ban, dozens of Mi-17s have been bought by the United States for Afghanistan and Iraq over the past four years via intermediaries as commercial items, thus avoiding direct contacts with Rosoboronexport.

In late May 2011 the U.S. Army Forces Command and Russian state-controlled arms exporter Rosoboronexport sealed a contract for the supply of 21 Mi-17V5 multipurpose helicopters to Afghanistan. The cost of one helicopter had been agreed at $17.5 million. Apart from the helicopters, the contract stipulates the procurement of reserve units, ground support equipment, and maintenance support. The United States and Russia had been in talks for more than a year on the deal to provide the much needed vehicles for the NATO mission in Afghanistan.

Russia’s state-run arms export monopoly sold no less than $10.7 billion worth of arms and equipment in 2011 under contracts with 57 countries, as opposed to $8.5 billion in 2010. But the 2011 number could be readjusted to $12 bln with the addition of direct sales of spare parts by Russian arms producers. “We are expecting Russian arms exports to surpass $14 billion in 2012,” the Center for the Analysis of Strategies and Technologies (CAST) said in a report. “Considering the current foreign orders portfolio, which is worth $41.5 billion, Russia may maintain this level of arms exports for at least three years,” the report said.

By 2012 Russia’s traditionally strong position on the Indian arms market was undermined by fierce competition with US and European companies and failures to fulfill several contracts. Russian arms exporters suffered two painful losses at Indian tenders. Russia did not win the contract to supply 22 helicopters to India, which preferred the US AH-64D Apache to Russia’s Mi-28N. During the Medium Multi-Role Combat Aircraft (MMRCA) tender announced by the Indian Air Force to replace aging MiG-21s, the Russian MiG-35 did not even make it to the finals, where the Eurofighter Typhoon twin-engine multirole fighter lost a contract worth at least $10 billion to France’s Dassault Rafale.

#AceNewsReport – Feb.21: “There is an active shooter situation,” the source said. “He’s barricaded on the third floor. They’ve got him isolated and barricaded and they don’t expect it to take very long Houston Chronicle has reported …

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said no victims have been located and an active search for a potential shooter is ongoing.

Cops hunt for possible gunman at Texas hospital //New York Post Members of the Houston Police Department wait outside Ben Taub Hospital in Houston while SWAT team members enter with guns drawn after reports of shots fired have left the hospital on lock down, Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017.

“All patients and employees safe at this point,” Acevedo said.

No known injuries had been reported. Medical providers were hiding inside their offices at Ben Taub Hospital as Houston police responded to reports of shots fired inside the building.

Reports started coming in about 2 p.m. of shots fired, Houston police spokesman Kese Smith said.

More patrol units as well as members of the SWAT team were en route at 2:15 p.m. Police Chief Art Acevedo was at the scene.

St. Marks Episcopal School in Bellaire posted on Twitter about an hour before the shooting a picture of fifth grade students holding up paintings and posing with hospital staff. The school would not answer a reporter’s questions about whether the students were still at the hospital and if they were safe.

Baylor College of Medicine’s security department issued an emergency notification of an “active shooter situation” about 2:15 p.m. The notification instructed college employees not to go to Ben Taub and ordered those already there to follow emergency response guidelines.

PARIS, France. A criminal known as “Spiderman” was jailed for eight years on Monday for stealing five painti ngs worth 100 million euros (£85 million) from a museum – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Feb.21: Vjeran Tomic, 49, told investigators he broke into the Musee d’Art Moderne in May 2010 intending to take works by Fernand Leger and Amedeo Modigliani.

When he entered the premises he found there was no alarm system worth speaking off and he widened his haul to include paintings by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Georges Braque.

Investigators later established the security system was indeed defective.

France’s ‘Spiderman’ jailed for eight years for 100 million-euro art heist Reuters reported that Tomic already had 14 convictions for jewellery and art thefts, many of them involving agility in scaling walls to break into apartments – a record which had earned him the underworld nickname of Spiderman.

Two other men, antiquarian Jean-Michel Corvez and Yonathan Birn, a dealer in clocks, were sentenced to seven years and six years respectively for handling the paintings.

The three men were handed hefty fines – 200,000 euros for Tomic and 150,000 euros for the others.

They were also collectively ordered to pay back the total value of the paintings – put at 104 million euros – to the city of Paris.

Birn said during the trial that he had thrown the paintings away. None has been recovered and investigators appear to believe they are no longer in France.

FORT HANCOCK, TX – Vigilance by Border Patrol Agents was responsible this week for thwarting an atte mpt to smuggle 50 bundles of marijuana into the U.S – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Feb.21: It began when a Border Patrol Agent assigned to the Fort Hancock Station spotted a white Chevrolet pick-up carrying fence equipment on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande river.

The vehicle seemed out of place to the agent who was familiar with those surroundings. The agent approached the pick-up truck to question the single occupant about his citizenship. The driver of the pick-up then became uncomfortable and unable to clearly identify the ranch that was his destination.

Since that region is known as a high-trafficking area for illegal smuggling activity, the agent decided to further investigate and delve deeper into questioning. While the agent was attempting to gather more information, the unidentified driver of the pick-up made an abrupt U-turn and sped away toward Mexico.

A brief distance later, the agent saw that same truck in the Rio Grande River, partially submerged in water. The truck got stuck on the bank of the river, and the driver took off on foot toward the border. By this time, several other agents from the Fort Hancock area arrived and discovered more than 50 bundles wrapped in cellophane sitting in the bed of the truck, hidden beneath a piece of plywood. Rolls of fencing materials were also used to help conceal the bundles of the contraband.

Once at the station, the cellophane bundles tested positive for marijuana. The drugs and vehicle were turned over to Homeland Security Investigations.

Later that day, agents assigned to the Deming Border Patrol Station received a distress signal from a rescue beacon located in the boot-heel of New Mexico. Due to the harsh desert terrain and night time conditions, agents on all-terrain vehicles were immediately dispatched to search. They came upon two male subjects in their early twenties who appeared to be exhausted. They stated they crossed the international boundary illegally, and were citizens of Mexico. They appeared to have gotten lost, but found a rescue beacon out in the desert. Border Patrol EMT’s found them and gave the subjects a medical assessment. They were determined to be in good health, but suffering from dehydration. Both subjects were transported the Deming Border Patrol Station for processing. Migrants frequently underestimate the hostile desert terrain as a means of travel. Agents know it is imperative to be able to react quickly and have the necessary equipment and infrastructure to reach them in time.

Rescue beacons were implemented as a result of the “Safety Border Initiative“, which is aimed at increasing public awareness about the inherent dangers of crossing illegally.
