Show Comments ▼ Thursday 20 January 2011 7:22 pm Share IBERDROLA, Spain’s biggest power utility, said yesterday that its €1.78bn (£1.51bn) acquisition of Brazilian energy distributor Elektro should boost profit from day one.Iberdrola has long been looking to expand its operations in Latin America where economic growth contrasts with stagnation in its home market.Iberdrola already ranks as one of the largest power producers in Mexico and has a 39 per cent stake in Neoenergia, the largest power distibutor in northeastern Brazil, whereas Elektro serves several municipalities in the southeastern state of Sao Paolo, the country’s most populous and wealthiest region.The Spanish company is buying 99.68 per cent of Elektro’s capital from AEI, the investment vehicle controlled by British investment manager Ashmore Group, which took over a number of Enron’s former power and gas businesses in Latin America.Iberdrola said the Elektro purchase would be paid for with cash raised from debt or asset sales, “underlining Iberdrola’s financial strength and liquidity”.

Help by sharing this information April 27, 2021 Find out more to go further News Receive email alerts News Until their arrest in November 2016, Chinese citizen journalists Liu Feiyue and Huang Qi ran two major human rights news sites in China, covering topics such as corruption, health scandals and forced evictions. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Chinese authorities to free them.”Huang Qi and Liu Feiyue did an admirable job in documenting the social injustices that are commonplace in China. They should receive the highest praise from the State rather than a criminal trial,” said Cédric Alviani, RSF’s East Asia director. “The United Nations has officially recognized the arbitrariness of their detention, therefore there is no reason why they should still be detained.”Liu Feiyue, founder of the site Minsheng Guancha (Civic Rights and Livelihood Watch), was arrested Nov. 17, 2016 and is being held at number 1 detention center in Suizhou city, Hubei province, on charges of “inciting subversion of state power,” for which he risks life imprisonment.Seriously ill and victim of tortureHuang Qi received the 2004 RSF award and founded the site 64 Tianwang, which won an RSF prize in 2016. He was arrested on November 28, 2016 and detained at Mianyang Prison in Sichuan province on charges of “disclosing state secrets abroad”, which can carry a verdict of capital punishment.Huang Qi’s state of health is particularly disturbing. He suffers from serious illnesses that are the legacy of eight years in prison and labor camps. The journalist has also been tortured, for which RSF recently petitioned the UN Special Rapporteur.China is one of the world’s most egregious jailers of journalists, with more than 60 professional and citizen journalists behind bars. In the 2018 World Press Freedom Index published by RSF, the country ranks 176 out of 180.
