Henry To Be Released From Jail If He Confess Truth

The soldier is investigated for his alleged participation in two murders of civilians who were not part of the armed conflict and were presented as “casualties in combat” by the Army, misnamed “false positives”, which occurred on March 6, 2007 in Aguazul.

The defense of General Torres Escalante requested the magistrates, in December of last year, to revoke the measure of assurance against them, ensuring that they complied with the requirements that the JEP imposes for those who take refuge.

However, this jurisdiction denied him at that time the benefit of freedom, because although he complied with most of the legal parameters, he lacked one: having been deprived of his liberty for at least five years.

In spite of this, the lawyer of the general (r) Torres Escalante, Jaime Granados, appealed the decision and in the second instance the benefit was granted. Why? The Appeals Section made an interpretation of the rule established by the Constitutional Court, which stipulates that members of the public force housed in the JEP could be free while their case is being resolved, if they have served that time of deprivation of freedom.

Although the Section agrees with the rule, since the military, as guarantors of human rights, “defrauded their constitutional mandate and the trust that society placed in them” in committing these crimes, they also considered that it could be modified “provided when they make contributions of truth that are early, extraordinary and exhaustive .

” For that reason, the decision was made, according to the magistrates, “in order to guarantee the symmetrical, equitable, balanced and differentiated treatment between the parties to the conflict.”

The Section stated that this benefit can now be requested when there is at least one year of deprivation of liberty, as provided in the Code of Criminal Procedure. In addition, the magistrates determined that, when cases of extraordinary, exhaustive and early contributions of truth occur , those who are welcomed also have “the possibility of accessing a priority process in the JEP to promptly and definitively resolve their legal situation.”

Torres Escalante joined the JEP in July 2017, arguing that there were no guarantees in ordinary justice to defend his innocence. A year later before that special justice he attended a first hearing in which he announced his commitment to contribute to the truth and signed the deed of submission.

Currently, he is being held in a Military Unit, fulfilling an assurance measure, ordered in his trial in the ordinary courts for cases of extrajudicial executions of Casanare. According to the complaint, soldiers assigned to the Sixth Division of the National Army, the 16th Brigade, commanded by Torres Escalante, allegedly presented the victims as members of the ELN killed in combat.

The victims were Daniel and Roque Julio Torres , father and son. According to the investigations of the Prosecutor General’s Office, Sub-Lieutenant Marco Fabián Garcia Cespedes , who led the operation, learned that after the extrajudicial execution of Daniel and Roque Julio Torres.

Lieutenant García put weapons in the hands of the deceased and made them shoot, while ordering to operate an M-60 machine gun and an MGL grenade launcher to simulate a combat.

However, through his lawyer, General (r) Torres has insisted that he was “neither doctrinaire nor statutorily responsible for planning operations, validating or verifying intelligence information, determining the type, providing logistical support, pay rewards, or determine criminal or disciplinary sanctions against the Delta 6 group. ” That is, there was a whole body of command and he was not the only one who made all the decisions.

Bharat To Be The Fourth Country To Reach The Moon

Starting with Thumba, India’s space journey has now gone a long way, and we are counting in the top countries of the world.On October 22, 2008, Bharat successfully launched Chandrayaan-1 under the first moon mission. Ten years ago the first moon mission has been completed on October 22, 2018.

The international competition in the space sector will be switched on Monday, when Bharat will launch its low-cost mission and become the fourth country in the world, which has launched a search on the moon.

Only 50 days before the 50th anniversary of a human being to reach the moon, Chandrayaan 2 will fly from an island adjacent to Andhra Pradesh after preparations made up to the entire decade. This mission will also show how much space science has passed since Neil Armstrong has taken an important step towards human civilization through the Apollo 11 mission.

Bharat has spent Rs 960 crores in preparing ‘Chandrayaan 2’ for a trip of 3,84,400 kms (2,40,000 miles), and it flies from Satish Dhawan Space Center on Monday to the Moon’s South Pole on 6 or 7 Will land on September. Knowing the mysteries of the Moon, the only natural satellite in the Earth, has helped not only India but also the knowledge of the scientists of the world has expanded.

It is notable that in just eight months of launch Chandrayaan-1 had achieved all the goals and objectives of the mission. Even today, the study of data collected by this mission is being done by the scientists of the world.

Through this mission, Bharat credibility has increased in the world and the morale of the scientists too. The result of this is that the Indian Space Research Organization (IIS) has completed its preparations for the launch of ISRO Chandrayaan-2.

During the mission, study the elements present in the surface of the Moon to find out what its rock and clay are made of. Study of the structure of trenches and peaks present there. Study of the density of the Moon’s surface and the change in it.

The thermal properties near the poles, the study of the amount of electrons in the moon’s ionosphere. Watering on the surface of the Moon, finding 3D marks of the moon surface, besides finding the marks of hydroxyl.

The US has spent 25 billion US dollars on its 15 Apollo missions, which are about $ 100 billion in today’s values. Among these missions are six missions, through which Neil Armstrong and other astronauts have landed on the Moon.

China has spent US $ 8.4 billion on its Chengyang 4 ship to be sent to the Moon. Apart from these, spending more than $ 20 billion in terms of today’s values ​​on the Moon-related campaigns run in the 1960s and 1970s.

Since the success of ISRO had been preparing for his own challenging space mission Chandrayaan-2. Under Chandrayaan-II, ISRO is sending orbiter, rover and lunar landers for the first time in the moon. This campaign will also encourage new experiments with the use and testing of new technologies.

After 40 days of launch, it will land on the moon. Under this mission, ISRO will first try to bring its vehicle to the south pole of the Moon. Earlier Chandrayaan was to be sent to space this year, but due to some changes in its design it is delayed.

There has been an increase of about 600 kilograms in the new design. Actually, during the experiments, it was discovered that the satellite will start moving when the part of the moon descends on the moon. For this, the need to improve the design and increase the weight felt.
