Wind farms: Federal Justice puts the magnifying glass on Caniggia

In an office addressed to the prosecutor in criminal and correctional matters Dora Nanci Olivieri, Judge Martinez de Giorgi asked him to send him copies of all the documentation in the case that could be related to the investigation on the Wind Farms.

Judicial sources confirmed that the investigating justice has sent part of the requested and material that may be useful but the famous pen drive that supposedly exists was not attached.

Before the pandemic, Mariana Nannis went to the Courts and assured before Justice that the former soccer player was meeting with the former president Mauricio Macri on the issue of wind farms. She revealed that she had account and business details that she had found on a flash drive.

Investigators also determined that the soccer player Carlos Tevez and technician Guillermo Barros Schelotto contributed millionaire sums of money to a trust created for the purchase of these parks.

Justice advances in all documentary evidence. It has already raised the fiscal secret to access the patrimonial movements of Gianfranco Macri, the brother of President Mauricio Macri in the framework of the cause.

A suspicious loan of 5 million dollars that Gianfranco Macri would have received from one of the controlling companies of the firms that won the wind farms and that they were resold within a few months with extraordinary profits, of approximately 48 million dollars.

The cause originated in a complaint from the deputies Rodolfo Tailhade Y Martin Doñate for alleged fraud, negotiations incompatible with the public function and influence peddling, which later expanded to money laundering within the framework of the sale of six wind farms, in Chubut and Miramar.

In the case, a series of maneuvers are being investigated that allowed the cheap purchase and subsequent resale of wind farms without bidding and with profits, in a “handrail” estimated at 48 million dollars for companies linked to the former presidential family.

“The blue friends will have to get on their knees, open their mouths and swallow whatever it takes,” reacts Bart De Wever

For his part, the N-VA deputy Theo Francken invites “everyone to think carefully, certainly also the CD&V”. “Let’s go back to this historic agreement and put it in place. It would be better for the country than what is looming ”.

The Flemish nationalist repeats that the country needs an agreement between the PS and the N-VA. “An agreement between the PS, the largest party and dominant force in Wallonia, and the N-VA, the largest party and dominant force in Flanders, moreover. If this agreement does not happen now, then it will be in 2024 or 2028. This agreement must come to put this country back on track and give it a new direction ”.

The government will spend almost 43 million rubles on the fight against crows on the roof. :: Society :: RBC

“If they’re going to hire falconers, that’s a great option. If this money is spent on some reasonable method of scaring away crows, and not their extermination, then this is a sensible decision, ”the expert said.

According to Schneider, killing the birds could have the opposite effect, as new birds from the wild will come to replace the killed crows.

Elena Chernova, an employee of the coordination center of the Bird Conservation Union, told RBC that there is no such number of crows in Moscow that needs to be exterminated.

“The number of crows in Moscow has been falling for several years. Their number was reduced by five times without any extermination. They cannot harm the roof in any way if the roof is not made of plasticine, ”explained Chernov.

According to her, it makes sense to use hawks and falcons against pigeons, whose droppings can damage the roof.

After the publication of this article, a representative of the Ministry of Natural Resources told RBC that mass crowds of crows pose a threat, since these birds are carriers of diseases, worsen the sanitary condition, harm green spaces and buildings, monuments of architecture.

“Of those used in domestic and foreign practice, an effective means of protection against unwanted accumulations of birds is the use of specially trained hawks and falcons as biorepellants. To achieve the best results, a group of working birds should ideally consist of four or five hawks and two or three falcons, with which four or six operators (falconers) should work in shifts, ”the interlocutor of RBC explained.

“The financing of these works includes the maintenance of the required number of birds of prey, veterinary services, scientific and methodological support of work and genetic control over the livestock of birds of prey, the purchase of equipment and transport support. These works will be carried out by the FGBI VNII Ecology, – he added.

Homeless camps: “unheard of” since World War II

The camps of homeless people are “unheard of” since the Second World War, lamented an organization, which hopes that governments will soon act.

• Read also: The occupants have no intention of leaving

According to data compiled by the Popular Action Front in Urban Reorganization (FRAPRU), 98 families are still looking for a home in Montreal, more than two and a half months after July 1, a number 10 times higher than ‘at the same date last year.

At the same time, an increase in homelessness has been noted in several cities in the province with the creation of several camps, including the one along Notre-Dame Street in Montreal, but also in certain other cities such as Gatineau.

“The camps are unheard of since the Second World War”, launched Monday morning Véronique Laflamme, spokesperson for FRAPRU at a press conference.

The spokesperson clarified that she made a distinction between the current homeless camps and the case of Occupy Montreal, where dozens of homeless people found themselves camping alongside activists in Square-Victoria in the fall of 2011. “Occupy was a political action where the majority of people were not homeless,” she said.

Along with three other community organizations, FRAPRU appealed Monday to the provincial and federal governments to quickly find solutions to accommodate homeless families.

Organizations expect the Speech from the Throne, which sets out the government’s priorities and is expected to take place on September 23, to include the issue of social housing.

As the agreement between the governments of Quebec and Canada on housing has not yet been ratified, several million dollars are still sleeping in Ottawa’s coffers, which should not prevent the government of Quebec from investing the funds, indicated the FRAPRU.

“The solution involves the construction of a large site of 50,000 social housing units by 2025 and [le gouvernement] must speed up the delivery of the 13,000 already planned, ”said Ms. Laflamme as a proposal to help the current housing crisis.

Single people living on social assistance, who receive only $ 690 per month, are hard hit by the current crisis and are struggling to make ends meet, according to the collective for a Quebec without poverty.

“These people had the right to work to get an extra $ 200, which was mostly lost during the crisis. [Par exemple], they could not, at the start of the pandemic, return empty bottles or distribute newspapers, ”said spokesperson for the collective, Virginie Larivière.

Women victims of domestic violence are also hard hit by the health crisis in times of housing shortage, having to stay longer in a shelter or return with a violent spouse, said the spokesperson for the Regroupement des homes for women victims of domestic violence, Louise Lafortune.


Federal negotiations: “For no party it is not an unconditional yes”, assures Joachim Coens

The president of the Open Vld, Egbert Lachaert, and his colleague Conner Rousseau were appointed preformers on Friday.

LThe fact that seven political parties decided on Friday to try to form a federal government does not mean that this government will be formed automatically. This is not an unconditional “yes” to anyone, Joachim Coens, president of CD&V, told De Morning on Radio 1 on Saturday.

The president of the Open Vld, Egbert Lachaert, and his colleague Conner Rousseau were appointed preformers on Friday. They will start negotiations with the Liberals, Socialists, Greens and CD&V for the formation of a new government. The cdH is not present.

Not automatically a government

This breakthrough, as Lachaert described on Friday, does not mean that there will now automatically be a government with these seven parties, says CD&V chairman Mr Coens. It is now up to the preformers to write a memorandum in which the parties concerned must identify themselves. “It’s always like that,” Coens said. We have to make sure that we are recognizable, that we find the things that matter to us ”.

According to Mr. Coens, the cdH’s decision not to participate makes the CD&V “more necessary”.

During his press conference on Friday, the preformator Lachaert spoke of a “project for ten years” which will be launched. It will also involve state reform. According to CD&V President Coens, other parties have also been asked to “prepare this”, including the N-VA.
