The truce in the Gaza Strip will extend for another day following an agreement between Hamas and the Israeli government.

Colombia has implemented a 10% tax on large technology companies as part of a tax reform initiated in 2022. The tax, effective from January 2024, targets companies with gross revenues exceeding approximately 290 million Chilean pesos. The reform, led by President Gustavo Petro's administration, follows a recommendation from the OECD but diverges from the previous government's approach. The tax adds to the existing 19% VAT on foreign capital corporations' services, with an option for companies to register as local entities to reduce the tax rate to 3%. Experts predict a limited immediate impact on fiscal revenue.

30 Nov 2023  |  adnradio.cl
Google and the Canadian government have reached a 'historic' agreement, with Google agreeing to distribute approximately 74 million dollars annually to Canadian media outlets for publishing their news. This move comes ahead of the enforcement of Ottawa's Online News Act on December 19, which could have led to a news blackout on tech platforms. While Google has settled, other companies like Meta have indicated they may reject the regulations. Canada's Heritage Minister, Pascale St-Onge, highlighted the disruption caused by digital platforms to news organizations over the past decade, leading to the closure of about 500 media outlets and the loss of thousands of journalist jobs. The agreement is seen as a step towards establishing a fairer commercial relationship between digital platforms and journalism.

Peru: Court Opens Option to Release Fujimori Despite Conviction for Crimes Against Humanity

29 Nov 2023  |  www.adnradio.cl
The Constitutional Court of Peru has declined to confirm a resolution from the Inter-American Court of Human Rights that revoked a pardon granted to former dictator Alberto Fujimori, convicted of crimes against humanity. This decision renders it possible for Fujimori to be released before completing his 25-year sentence. The court has deemed it inappropriate to ratify the decision of the Inter-American Court and has deferred the final decision on the pardon to a judge. Fujimori's defense had filed a habeas corpus in 2017 seeking a pardon, which was initially granted for humanitarian reasons but was later revoked by the Peruvian Supreme Court in 2019. The Constitutional Court reinstated the habeas corpus in 2020, but the Inter-American Court's decision prevented its fulfillment. Now, the possibility of Fujimori's pardon and release is once again open, pending a judge's ruling.

Wilders campaigned on an anti-immigration platform and the idea of 'reclaiming' the country.

Together with these parties, the far-right could secure 43 seats and possibly add 7 more with the farmers.

Uruguay faces a political crisis due to a drug trafficker

10 Nov 2023  |  adnradio.cl
A drug trafficker has triggered a political crisis in Uruguay, leading to the resignation of four senior government officials within a week. The irregular issuance of a passport to criminal Sebastián Marset has reached the office of President Luis Lacalle. The country's prosecutor's office is considering summoning the president to testify. The crisis began with the resignation of Interior Minister Alberto Heber and his deputy Guillermo Maciel, amid corruption allegations related to Marset's passport obtained while he was jailed in the United Arab Emirates in 2021. Two other resignations followed, including a friend and advisor to Luis Lacalle, Roberto Lafluf, and Foreign Minister Francisco Bustillo, who was implicated by former deputy foreign minister Carolina Ache through controversial audio recordings. Ache claimed Bustillo asked her to lose her phone to delete a WhatsApp conversation warning of Marset's criminal record, contradicting the government's claim of ignorance about the drug trafficker's identity since 2021. The prosecutor is evaluating requesting President Lacalle's statement, as he allegedly lied about his advisor Lafluf destroying official documents relevant to the case. Sebastián Marset is accused in Uruguay of murdering anti-mafia prosecutor Marcelo Pecci, and the current government reportedly granted him an expedited passport.
