Starbucks has made a commitment that by the end of 2009, all espressos sold – both whole bean and espresso-based beverages including Cappuccino and Caffe Latte – in Starbucks stores in the UK and Ireland will become both Starbucks ‘Shared Planet’ and Fairtrade Certified. The announcement from Starbucks UK and the Fairtrade Foundation aims to reinforce the coffee chain’s support for small-scale coffee farmers. It is part of a broader global commitment with the Fairtrade Labelling Organisations International (FLO) and its plans to double its global purchases of Fairtrade Certified coffee to 40 million pounds (volume) in 2009.“Now, by linking our efforts with the global Fairtrade labelling movement, we will be able to have an even larger impact on small farmers particularly with the opening of Starbucks Farmer Support Centers in Ethiopia and Rwanda early next year,” said Howard Schultz, Starbucks, chairman, president and ceo.Harriet Lamb, executive director of the Fairtrade Foundation UK, said: “The partnership between Fairtrade and Starbucks is good news for farmers, good news for coffee lovers and a wake up call to the wider coffee industry.”Darcy Willson-Rymer, Starbucks, managing director UK & Ireland added that: “Consumers here have high-levels of awareness about ethical issues, in particular, those relating to the sourcing of products.”
By Dialogo May 14, 2013 The alleged Colombian drug trafficker Giraldo de Jesús Escalante Villegas, alias ‘Escalante’ and leader of the gang ‘Los Urabeños’, was arrested on May 10 in western Venezuela, Néstor Reverol, head of the National Anti-Drug Office (ONA), reported. “A Colombian national, head of the Colombian criminal gang ‘Los Urabeños’ and wanted by Interpol under blue notice for drug trafficking, conspiracy and murder, was captured,” Reverol told the state TV station VTV via phone. Interpol’s blue notice – ranked below the red notice of full alert – is an international cooperation warrant to obtain “additional information about the identity of a person, location or activities in connection with a crime,” the international criminal police organization states on its official website. “He was the regional leader of this dangerous gang [‘Los Urabeños’] operating in Colombia. He was captured by ONA and Military Intelligence officials in the city of Barinas, in a joint operation with the Colombian authorities,” Reverol stated. The director of ONA added that the capture of alias ‘Escalante’ came after operations and surveillance activities conducted over the course of two months, under an agreement between the two countries. Venezuela and Colombia have a security cooperation and information exchange agreement that was signed in 2010. According to Colombian daily El Tiempo, the authorities are awaiting the conclusion of the proceedings to enforce the extradition of Escalante Villegas.
