      LIMA – A former Peruvian president has died after shooting himself in the head after police arrived at his home in the capital Lima to arrest him in connection with a bribery investigation.
      Alan Gabriel Ludwig García Pérez, 69, was president of Peru from 1985 to 1990 and from 2006 to 2011. He also served in Congress.
      On Wednesday morning, García shot himself in the head in his bedroom when the police were preparing to arrest him for allegedly laundering assets linked to the Brazilian construction company Odebrecht. He was then taken to a hospital in Lima where he was given cardiopulmonary resuscitation three times before entering the operating room.
      Peru’s current President Martin Vizcarra announced García’s death: “Dismayed by the death of former President Alan García. I send my condolences to his family and loved ones,” Vizcarra posted on Twitter. He ordered three days of national duel.

      El presidente peruano Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, que acaba de evitar su destitución, vive una nueva crisis ante la renuncia de congresistas afines y protestas tras el indulto concedido al exgobernante Alberto Fujimori, que cumplía una pena de 25 años por delitos de lesa humanidad.
      Las reacciones al indulto y gracia presidencial a Fujimori mostraron este lunes a un Perú polarizado, dividido entre los simpatizantes del fujimorismo -mayor fuerza política del país- y la indignación de sus detractores, desde cuyas filas se planea incluso impugnar la medida ante tribunales internacionales.

      LIMA, Peru – Not less than 530 homes and 6 Kingdom Halls of Jehovah’s Witnesses have been damaged due to severe flood which has ravaged Peru in the last few days.
      Reports indicate that in the town of Huarmey, located 288 kilometers (approximately 179 mi) from Lima, floodwaters have stranded many Witnesses on the roofs of their homes.
      So far, the Peru branch office of Jehovah’s Witnesses has set up eight disaster relief committees to care for the Witnesses in the affected areas, including the 12 regions where the government has declared a state of emergency. 
      The relief committees have already supplied 22 tons of food and over 22,000 liters (6,000 gal) of drinking water to victims. Another 48 tons of food and over 9,000 liters (2,400 gal) of drinking water will be sent in the coming weeks. 
      Jehovah’s Witnesses are assisting their fellow members, as well as other victims of the disaster.So far, hundreds of Witnesses in Peru have volunteered to help with cleanup and repair work. “The Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses facilitates disaster relief efforts from their world headquarters, using funds donated to the Witnesses’ global ministry work”, the Jehovah’s Witnesses said in a statement.Heavy rainfall has caused flooding and landslides in 24 out of 25 regions of Peru, while reports indicate that these conditions are expected to continue. 
      The country has received 10 times the normal amount of precipitation during its rainy season (December to March).

      There's fresh impetus to explore Namibia's startling landscapes this year CREDIT:FOTOLIA
      6 JANUARY 2017 • 12:31PM
      If your ambition this year is to try new things and explore new places, you're in luck. From Nicaragua to Tajikistan, a number of hitherto "undiscovered" destinations are increasingly catering to discerning holidaymakers, with a host of new resorts opening and experiences launching over the year to come. Read below for more on the most exciting outdoor adventures to be enjoyed around the world in 2017, or for something more sedate see our guides to 2017's best wellness and fitness breaks; 2017's best luxury beach holidays; the year's best yachting and sailing holidays; and the best cities to visit over the next 12 months. 
      The Desert Circuit: Namibia Exclusive Lodges 
      The four new luxury lodges on the Namibia Exclusive circuit are located in some of the most remote and beautiful northern parts of the country, each designed by architect Greg Scott and built of local materials that reflect the region’s landscapes and cultural traditions.
      Sorris Sorris Lodge in Damaraland  has been built into huge granite boulders scattered across the desert landscape, its modern African rammed-earth structures and pool offering views over the Ugab River and the mountains of the Brandberg Massif.

      Sorris Sorris Lodge
      Omatandeka Lodge is surrounded by vast plains inhabited by the Himba people, table-top mountains and a vital wildlife corridor used by mountain zebra, oryx and endangered black rhino, while Sheya Shuushona Lodge, on the northern boundary of Etosha National Park, is surrounded by photogenic salt pans that change colour with the seasons and turn into a lake in the rainy season.
      Finally, Xaudum Lodge, the most recent addition, is surrounded by the sand dunes of the Kalahari, home to some 3,000 elephants. All four lodges are located in areas with indigenous communities and contribute funds so these people can continue to live in traditional ways on their ancestors’ land.

      The Explorations Company offers a nine-night safari, staying at three Namibia Exclusive lodges, from £8,985  per person including flights, air transfers, full board and guiding.
      The Italian Castle: Castello di Ugento, Puglia
      There are few buildings in Europe in which guests can stay above a Norman keep, dine beneath 17th-century Baroque frescoes and wander around a garden in which Bronze Age artefacts have been found. In April, on the southern heel of Italy, the (rather wonderfully named) d’Amore family will open their restored thousand-year-old Castello di Ugento to paying guests for the first time (doubles from £260).
      Visitors can relax within walled gardens, in which more than 100 medicinal and aromatic plants are grown for the kitchen and spa; admire the frescoes painted in 1694 to portray the noble family’s history; sample local wines in an ancient cistern-turned-cellar; and take cookery lessons in a wing turned by the Culinary Institute of America  into its first European school.
      A maximum of 18 guests will sleep in stone-walled rooms with high, star-vaulted ceilings and views over Ugento’s rooftops,  and they will feast on Puglian favourites cooked by Milanese chef Odette Fada, whose refined cuisine at the renowned Rex Il Ristorante in Los Angeles and San Domenico NY  made her name as one of America’s finest Italian chefs. The nearest beaches are two miles away and Baroque towns such as  Lecce are a short drive from the castle. 
      The Urban Forest: Aman Shanghai
      Aman’s latest property in China (its fourth) must be one of its most anticipated to date. The Shanghai retreat (rates not yet available) is a picture of leafy tranquility – and full of surprises. If  a visitor were to drop into the 100-acre property, planted with thousand-year-old camphor trees and interspersed with historic Ming- and Qing-dynasty houses, they’d never believe that they were within easy reach of buzzy downtown Shanghai. Neither the forest nor village are native to this area; both were moved here over the past 10 years from Jiangxi, some 500 miles southwest, by Ma Dadong, a pioneering businessman, when the building of a reservoir threatened their survival.

      Aman Shanghai
      Now that the painstaking replanting (which took three years) and the building of the hotel are complete, the 37 villas in the new sanctuary are being decorated with original beams, floors, sculptures and carvings from the uplifted village homes. Kerry Hill, the project’s architect, has taken care to reflect traditional Chinese culture while blending in contemporary comforts and natural tones of earth, moss and creamy whites. Guests can take day trips to Shanghai, walk in the forest, sample Eastern cuisine, or relax in the spa, beside the two pools or in the Nan Shu Fang contemplation garden. 
      The South American Sleeper: The Belmond Andean Explorer, Peru
      For the first time in May 2017, travellers will be able not only to traverse the Andes in one of the most luxurious trains on earth, but to sleep overnight on one. The Belmond Andean Explorer has been built to carry up to 68 passengers in en-suite cabins decorated by the South African designer Inge Moore in contemporary light woods and comforting alpaca-wool colours.
      Each of the train’s cars is fitted with expansive windows to frame views of the Andean plains, mountains and grand architecture, including the Unesco World Heritage Site of Arequipa. Although another two trains already operate in this area – Belmond’s Hiram Bingham, which offers day trips to Machu Picchu, and the more traditional Inca Princess  – this is the first modern luxury train to offer trips from Cusco to Lake Titicaca and Arequipa, on one- and two-night journeys. Chefs from the Hotel Monasterio in Cusco will serve modern Peruvian cuisine in two dining cars; guests can also enjoy spacious lounge and observation cars, and an open deck.  Doubles from £738 , all-inclusive, for one night. 
      The Gorilla Camp: Bisate Lodge, Rwanda
      One of the key trends in Africa in 2017 is the growth of camps that offer both sustainable luxury and adventure. Hence Wilderness Safaris’ decision to open Bisate Lodge in June as a luxury base for tracking the 10 habituated gorilla groups  in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park (doubles from £1,762 full board, excluding gorilla permits).
      The lodge, raised high above the forest floor in the amphitheatre of an eroded volcanic cone, has been designed by architect Nick Plewman to echo the spherical, thatched structures that dot the hills, as well as the layout of traditional Rwandan palaces. The interiors by Caline Williams-Wynn have been inspired by the rich detail of Rwandan textiles, many of which are made using a technique called imigongo, an ancient art form incorporating geometric shapes.
      When the first guests arrive, they will be able not only to track gorillas, but to  hike to Dian Fossey’s grave and her former research station at Karisoke, to trek to the top of a nearby volcano, and then to relax in the extensively reforested gardens.
      The Jungle Retreat: Nekupe Sporting Resort and Retreat, Nicaragua
      Nicaragua’s first luxe mountain resort sits in the lush landscape of Nandaime, just 40 minutes’ drive from the pretty colonial city of Granada. Nekupe – or heaven, in the indigenous Chorotega  language – was designed with the help of a feng shui architect to have the highest energy flow and least environmental impact possible, and the four freestanding villas and four expansive suites, with king-sized beds, made-for-sharing bathtubs and alfresco showers, are decorated in earth tones and warm woods that echo the serene setting (doubles from £720, full board). Floor-to-ceiling windows frame views over Mombacho  volcano’s perfect cone, and wraparound terraces  are perfect for sipping daiquiris, before farm-to-table feasts of nuevo-Nicaraguan cuisine.

      Nekupe will provide access to Nicaragua's underexplored nature reserves
      The surrounding nature reserve,  which echoes with the sounds of primates and toucans, can be explored on ATVs, as well as on paths created for hikers, bikers and horseback riders, or on zip wires, which soar above the forest canopy. For those not expending energy on target-shooting, tennis and yoga, there is an infinity pool and a spa.
      The Cook Ski Spot: Lech, Austria
      Size matters to ski resorts, so the hotly anticipated coronation of Ski Arlberg as Austria’s largest contiguous ski area is big news indeed. Encompassing eight villages, including big hitters St Anton, Lechand Zürs, Ski Arlberg is already one of the best-known ski areas in the Alps. But now its four new lifts are open, linking the entire area to deliver 109 miles  of pistes (three more than Val d’Isère), Ski Arlberg will join the ranks of the world’s über resorts.

      New developments have given Lech a leg up
      The four connected lifts, known as the Flexenbahn, will place Lech at the epicentre of the ski area (stealing some thunder from St Anton). While expanding its lifts, Lech has also been consolidating its position as Austria’s leading town for luxury ski chalets. In December – hot on the heels of properties like the Aurelio Clubhouse, Chalet N, Chalet 1597 and Überhaus, which have raised the luxury bar in recent years – Severin’s Alpine Retreat will open its doors. The nine-suite hotel will be fitted with only the best: Minotti furnishings, a spa with an indoor infinity pool and hypoxic chamber for altitude training, and a ski room with bespoke Indigo kit.
      Guests can take over the chalet, for free rein over the suites, restaurant, capacious spa and fire-lit lounges, or plump for The Residence: a sleek four-bedroom private apartment spanning two floors  with a professional kitchen, cinema, bar and outdoor hot tub. The Oxford Ski Company offers a week for two people at Severin’s Alpine Retreat from £6,440, including transfers and flights.
      The Rugged Destination: Pamir Mountains, Tajikistan
      Tajikistan was the second-fastest growing tourist destination in the world in 2015, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC). Which is why in 2017 Edge Expeditions will be running a two-week Luxury Tajikistan tour of the country’s spectacular Pamir Mountains: one the most diverse, wild, exhilarating and least-explored corners of the planet.
      With a team of expert guides, a maximum of eight guests will traverse the raw wilderness by either four-wheel-drive vehicles, with a driver, or motorbikes. Journeying along the legendary Pamir Highway, travellers will spend days exploring azure mountain lakes, hidden valleys, ancient ruins and high mountain passes that very few outsiders ever get to see.
      The trip starts off at a five-star hotel in the capital, Dushanbe, while on the road the ground crew will prepare yurt camps with hot showers, comfortable beds, Egyptian cotton sheets and gourmet meals prepared by the expedition’s private chef. Along the way, both British and Tajik guides will interpret the layered history of the region, while astronomers with telescopes will also be on hand to explore some of the least light-polluted night skies in the world. 
      Edge Expeditions is offering a 14-day Luxury Tajikistan journey by four-wheel-drive or motorcycle, from £9,495 full board, starting and ending at Dushanbe, including transfers, motorcycle rental or vehicle (with driver), back-up vehicles, guides and medic, but excluding international flights.

      Ladrones se robaron equipos de música y otros artículos de valor de la iglesia Los Testigos de Jehová de Reque

      Delincuentes robaron equipos de sonido y artículos de valor de la iglesia “Testigos de Jehova” del distrito chiclayano de Reque, valorizados en casi 20 mil soles.
      Los ladrones forzaron los candados de las puertas principales y robaron 02 televisores modernos, 01 mezcladora de audio, 01 consola de sonido, 03 micrófonos, 01 CPU, entre otros artículos que utilizaba la comunidad para sus reuniones.
      El local ubicado en la cuadra cuatro de la calle Huayna Cápac, sector Villa el Sol, no contaba con vigilancia permanente y por la oscuridad y soledad de la zona, los delincuentes aprovecharon para llevarse todo lo que encontraron a su paso.
      Los vecinos de la zona pidieron reforzar el control policial en esta zona, ya que son continuos los robos que ocurren en viviendas y negocios.

      Por oponerse a que se le haga una transfusión de sangre a un niño de dos años para salvarle la vida, sus padres terminaron perdiendo la patria potestad en Perú, tal como informa El Tiempo. Según se conoció, el niño presentaba un cuadro crónico deanemia severa. Ingresó por emergencia el pasado 27 de agosto en el hospital de Sullana (departamento de Piura) para recibir tratamiento.
      Cuando los médicos ordenaron la transfusión, los padres se opusieron, ya que son testigos de Jehová. Hasta unos días después, una vez que el hecho fue denunciado a la comisaría de Sullana, los médicos no pudieron intervenir por orden del Juzgado Civil y de Familia de Sullana que tomó de oficio la investigación.
      “Nos dijeron que se le iba a dar sangre para salvarlo, pero nosotros nos opusimos. Somos testigos de Jehová y nos basamos en lo que dice la Biblia”, manifestó la madre, Janet Zeta. “Tengo la esperanza, de que si mi hijo muere, lo voy a volver a ver en el paraíso porque la Biblia así lo dice y Jehová es Dios y no un humano para mentir”, agregó.
      Ahora por mandato judicial la patria potestad ha sido entregada a Janet Burneo Ramírez, trabajadora social del Ministerio Público, mientras el niño se recupera de la intervención. “El niño pudo haber muerto por el grave estado en el que se encontraba y la oposición de los padres. Por el momento estará en manos del Ministerio Público”, informó un agente de la comisaría de Sullana.
      Un caso anterior que acabó en muerte
      En la misma ciudad de Sullana se repitió un caso parecido en el año 2005. En aquel entonces falleció un bebé que sólo tenía cuatro días después de que sus padres se negaran a la transfusión recomendada por los médicos al presentar un cuadro de anemia y de infección general. Aquel caso, señalaba entonces la Asociación Médica Peruana (AMP), “ha puesto en el tapete un grave problema que se presenta en los hospitales y establecimientos de salud y frente a lo cual urge tomar medidas necesarias”.
      A pocas horas de haber nacido, el niño presentó hemorragias y vómitos, por lo que fue internado en el Hospital de Sullana y posteriormente en el Hospital Cayetano Heredia de Piura, donde los médicos, al ver su grave situación, recomendaron la transfusión de sangre con la negativa absoluta de sus padres, argumentando que esto contradecía sus preceptos religiosos.
      Importancia del derecho a la vida
      En aquel entonces, la AMP recordaba que el derecho a la vida es el principio básico de la ética médica y del Estado peruano tutelado por la Constitución Política. La libertad de creencia de los padres es un derecho de menor jerarquía, que no se puede anteponer al derecho a la vida, pues nadie puede quitar la vida a otro por sus creencias.
      En el Código del Niño y del Adolescente se señala que los derechos de los niños son propios, autónomos, ni siquiera los padres pueden violarlos. “Hay que erradicar la falsa creencia que los padres son dueños de los hijos y por otro lado, hay que difundir que los niños tienen derechos propios, al margen de los padres y que el principal es el derecho a la vida”, señaló el Dr. Herberth Cuba García, vocero oficial de la Asociación Médica Peruana. El padre no puede consentir o aprobar algo que atente contra los derechos y peor aún si se trata de su vida.
      La AMP, recordaba en 2005, rechaza y exige una profunda investigación de este hecho debido a que viola los 5 principios éticos de la profesión médica: No hacer daño (no Maleficencia), Hacer el bien (Beneficencia), Justicia, Libertad de Conciencia del médico y Autonomía del paciente y cuya consecuencia ha sido la muerte de un niño.
      La AMP hace un llamado a todos los médicos del país a no dejarse presionar en el cumplimiento de su misión, y exigir al Ministerio de Salud y a la Fiscalía de la Naciónuna profunda investigación para sancionar a los responsables, tal como manda el Código Penal no sólo para los que permitieron la muerte, sino también para todos aquellos que por omisión se comportaron como mudos testigos.
      Delito que habrían cometido los padres y sus líderes
      Los padres habrían cometido el delito de parricidio sancionado con una pena mínima de quince años de pena privativa de libertad. Este delito está tipificado en el artículo 107° del Código Penal de Perú. En este caso sería bajo la modalidad de dolo eventual debido a que los padres sabían que su hijo podría morir sin dicha transfusión pero no les importó.
      En este delito lo que se castiga es el desprecio por la vida, se castiga el hecho de poner el derecho a la vida por debajo del derecho a la libertad de religión. El líder espiritual de los padres habría cometido el delito de instigación al homicidiosancionado con pena privativa de libertad no menos de seis años de pena privativa de libertad. Este delito está tipificado en el artículo 24° y 106° del Código Penal.
      El delito de parricidio está tipificado en el artículo 107 que textualmente dice: «El que, a sabiendas, mata a su ascendiente, descendiente, natural o adoptivo, o a su cónyuge o concubino, será reprimido con pena privativa de libertad no menor de quince años».
      El delito de instigación está tipificado en el artículo 24° del Código Penal que textualmente dice: «El que, dolosamente, determina a otro a cometer el hecho punible será reprimido con la pena que corresponde al autor». En el presente caso es el delito de homicidio simple tipificado en el artículo 106° del Código Penal que textualmente dice: «El que mata a otro será reprimido con pena privativa de libertad no menor de seis ni mayor de veinte años».
      Delito que habrían cometido los médicos
      Los médicos de los establecimientos de salud que no colocaron la sangre al menor, habrían cometido el delito de exposición a peligro a persona dependiente, sancionado con una pena mínima de un año de pena privativa de libertad. Lo que se castiga es que se le ha privado de los cuidados indispensables para conservar la vida del menor que fue la realización de la transfusión sanguínea.
      El delito de exposición a peligro de persona dependiente está tipificado en el artículo 128° del Código Penal que textualmente dice: «El que expone a peligro la vida o la salud de una persona colocada bajo su autoridad, dependencia, tutela, curatela o vigilancia, sea privándola de alimentos o cuidados indispensables, sea sometiéndola a trabajos excesivos o inadecuados o abusando de los medios de corrección o disciplina, será reprimido con pena privativa de libertad no menor de uno ni mayor de cuatro años».
