From Radio Netherlands- Russia opposes US/British sanctions against Iraq; big demonstrations in Belgrade protesting the UN Yugoslavian tribunal; synthetic drugs like Ecstasy continue increasing production; Peru's ex-spy chief is in Peru facing trial, making lots of Peruvian officials nervous that he has videos of them accepting bribes. From Radio Havana Cuba- many are suggesting that Montecinos will implicate the CIA and the DEA; at the UN conference on AIDS Cuba offers 4000 doctors and medical workers to aid other countries, and says $7-10 billion should be raised by reducing the military budgets of the G-7 countries. From Radio Deutsche Welle- the World Court in the Hague finds the US violated the international rights of 2 German citizens executed in Arizona 2 years ago, and the UN resents the US ignoring its order to delay the executions. From the Voice of Russia- the first international conference against the death penalty was held in Struassberg; the European Parliament is investigating the US/British spy network Echelon. From Spanish National Radio- an Andean Summit was held in Venezvula, with plans to create a common Andean passport and to unify the nations to curb poverty and drugs.
