Niger, Areva, Imuraren y China / Niger, Areva, Imouraren and China


El gobierno nigerino anunció el pasado mes de octubre un plan quinquenal que ha denominado “Strategy for Development and Security” (SDS) por un importe de 25.000 millones de dólares.

De dónde sale todo ese dinero no está nada claro.
El mismo gobierno nigerino ha comenzado también a expresar algún descontento en relación a la explotación del uranio que el gigante francés Areva extrae en Imuraren a través de la empresa franco-nigerina Imouraren SA.

Israel admite haber asesinado a Abu Yihad / Israel admits killing of Abu Jihad

La libertad de Taysir Alony / Tayseer Allouni's freedom


El 17 de enero de 2012, la sección tercera del Tribunal Europeo de Derechos Humanos (T.E.D.H.) dictó Sentencia declarando que la condena del periodista Español Don Taysir (Tayseer) Alony (Allouni, Alluni, Aluni, Alony) (تيسير علوني) por su "integración" en al-Qaida contravenía el Derecho a un Tribunal imparcial reconocido en el artículo 6.1. del Convenio europeo para la Protección de los Derechos Humanos y las Libertades Fundamentales, toda vez que la Magistrada ponente de la Sentencia dictada por la Audiencia Nacional había sido antes miembro de la Sala del mismo Tribunal que había decidido --y confirmado-- la prisión provisional del recurrente.

¿Precedentes de situaciones similares? Mutatis mutandis, Perote Pellón c. España; Gómez de Liaño y Botella c. España y Cardona Serrat c. España.

La Sentencia de mérito ganó firmeza el 17 de abril siguiente.

¿Cuántas condenas de la Sala de lo Penal de la Audiencia Nacional están viciadas del mismo error procesal?
