AMLO retira demanda contra WSJ

  1. 1. A2 | Tuesday, November 8, 2016 THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. An official report on cor- ruption in the South African government released last week cited the cellphone records of President Jacob Zuma’s son Duduzane Zuma to back up its allegations. A World News arti- cle on Thursday about that re- port incorrectly stated that it cited the cellphone records of President Zuma. Mexican presidential hope- ful Andrés Manuel López Obra- dor transferred title of two apartments to one of his sons in 2005 although Mr. López Ob- rador was still named as the owner in the public registry that is the government’s official record. A Sept. 28 World Watch article, reporting that Mr. Ló- pez Obrador’s public declara- tion of assets didn’t reference the apartments, included his spokesman’s statement that the apartments had been donated to his two eldest sons. But it didn’t note the spokesman’s comment that title to the apart- ments had also been trans- ferred. After publication of that article, Mr. López Obrador’s at- torney provided the Journal with copies of title documents indicating that Mr. López Obra- dor transferred his 50% owner- ship in the two apartments to THE WALL STREET JOURNAL (USPS 664-880) (Eastern Edition ISSN 0099-9660) (Central Edition ISSN 1092-0935) (Western Edition ISSN 0193-2241) Editorial and publication headquarters: 1211 Avenue of the Americas, New York, N.Y. 10036 Published daily except Sundays and general legal holidays.

The deal is a draft that still must be completed over the next six months, the Iranian oil-ministry official said, but it gives Total and CNPC a head start over competitors. Total and CNPC both signed deals years ago to develop the South Pars project before sanctions forced them to pull out in 2009 and 2012, respec- tively. Representatives for CNPC and Petropars didn’t respond to requests to comment. Total said representatives weren’t available to comment on Mon- day. A U.S. State Department spokesman didn’t return a re- quest for comment. “This agreement will be en- couraging” for other compa- nies to do business with Iran, particularly those with little activity in the U.S., said Mehdi Varzi, a consultant who ad- vises companies on Middle Eastern investments. Total was long one of the most active Western oil com- panies in Iran, and its execu- tives have said they were ea- ger to return to a country with the fourth-largest reserves of ContinuedfromPageOne IRAN PENNSYLVANIA Transit Strike Ends, In Time for Election A six-day transit strike in Philadelphia ended Monday, and officials said bus, trolley and subway service in the city would be fully restored by the time voters head to polls Tuesday. The regional transit agency and the transport workers union announced early Monday a ten- tative five-year contract. The agreement still must go before union members for ratifi- cation and to the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Au- thority board for approval. —Scott Calvert CALIFORNIA Life Sentence for Rampage at Airport A gunman who killed a fed- eral transportation security offi- cer and wounded three other people in a rampage at Los An- geles International Airport was sentenced to life plus 60 years in prison Monday for the attack. Paul Ciancia, 26, had faced the mandatory life sentence for murdering a federal officer, but prosecutors also sought the ad- ditional 60-year term because he showed no remorse and still clings to the beliefs that led to the violence in 2013. —Associated Press U.S. NEWS During eight years as attor- ney general under Mr. Clin- ton—the longest tenure of the 20th century—she earned praise for her bluntness and independence, but faced criti- cism for her handling of some high-profile controversies. Shortly after taking office in 1993, she approved a Fed- eral Bureau of Investigation raid on a cult compound in Waco, Texas, led by David Ko- resh. In the assault, which fol- lowed a weekslong standoff, about 75 people died, includ- ing many children. Ms. Reno later expressed regret for hav- ing authorized the offensive and said she took responsibil- ity for the loss of life. In the ensuing years, she oversaw numerous prominent Justice Department cases, in- cluding the 1997 conviction of Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for the Oklahoma City bombing that killed 168 peo- ple. In 1998, the Justice De- partment secured a guilty plea from Theodore Kaczynski, the “Unabomber” who unleashed a bombing campaign against numerous people in the U.S. The department also sued Mi- crosoft Corp. over alleged an- titrust violations, a case the government later settled with the software maker in 2001, after she left her position. Ms. Reno was criticized by Republicans for refusing in 1997 to appoint an indepen- dent counsel to investigate al- leged fundraising irregulari- ties in the White House. She also faced criticism from Democrats for allowing an in- vestigation into a failed land deal known as Whitewater to expand to a wide-ranging probe that ensnared Mr. Clin- ton over his sexual relation- ship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. In 2000, Ms. Reno autho- rized the armed seizure by federal agents of Elián González, a 6-year-old Cuban refugee caught in an interna- tional custody dispute be- tween his father on the island and his relatives in Miami. Ms. Reno’s action, which re- sulted in the boy’s return to his father, enraged the Cuban- American community, which opposed sending him back to the communist country. Janet Reno, the first woman to serve as U.S. attor- ney general, who played key roles in some of the most acri- monious events of President Bill Clinton’s administration, died early Monday at the age of 78. Ms. Reno died at her l o n g t i m e home in Mi- ami-Dade County, Fla., of com- plications related to Parkin- son’s disease, from which she had suffered for more than 20 years, said her sister, Maggy Hurchalla. She spent her final days surrounded by loved ones, receiving visitors and messages from admirers.

RUTHFREMSON/ASSOCIATEDPRESS OBITUARY JANET RENO 1938-2016 chiatric unit. “As a victim of rape, Jenny experienced an overwhelming sense of hopelessness and help- lessness,” said the plaintiff’s lawyer, Sean Buckley. “The de- fendants in this lawsuit sub- jected her to the same kind of trauma by confining her in a filthy jail for 27 days.” Kim Ogg, Ms. Anderson’s op- ponent, has run campaign ads accusing the district attorney of botching the case, one of which features a woman who identi- fies herself only as the victim’s mother. “This is terrible public pol- icy,” said Ms. Ogg. “There are other ways of persuading peo- ple to testify in difficult and hu- miliating cases like rape other than putting them in jail.” A University of Houston poll from last month showed Ms. Ogg leading Ms. Anderson by 7 percentage points. Authorities rarely use jail as way of compelling witnesses to testify, legal experts said, though the practice can vary by jurisdiction. Such scenarios were more common in cases of domestic violence and rape a decade ago, as prosecutors had begun focusing more on crimes against women but struggled to get victims to come forward. Outcry from victims’ advocates and increased training for pros- ecutors has made the practice less frequent. In Texas, the Harris County district attorney’s office said the specific prosecutor who worked on the case, Nicholas Socias, should be granted im- munity from Jenny’s suit be- cause he was simply acting in his official legal role. Rusty Har- din, a Texas attorney represent- ing Mr. Socias, said his client never intended to have Jenny jailed with the general popula- tion and wanted her placed in a mental health unit. Harris County authorities have sought to dismiss the suit against the county, saying jail- ers were carrying out the or- ders of prosecutors. his son Andres Manuel in 2005.

Total kept an office open in Iran throughout sanctions from 2010 until ear- lier this year and was the first European oil company to buy Iranian oil and ship it to Eu- rope after the restrictions were lifted. But actually setting up shop in Iran and drilling has been a riskier proposition. Total Chief Executive Patrick Pouyanné has said he was in no rush to return to Iran until terms of working there were better un- derstood. The deal with Total is part of a push by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to showcase the success of the nuclear agreement ahead of the May 2017 presidential election in Iran, said Roozbeh Aliabadi, an Iranian consultant whose firm, Global Growth Advisors, helps companies enter the Iranian market. The U.S. government loos- ened restrictions on trading in U.S. dollars with Iran. But the U.S. still bans direct banking relations with Iran and invest- ment by U.S. oil companies in the country. Total and CNPC have been leaders among oil companies in finding ways to do business in countries under U.S. sanc- tions. Both companies were in- strumental in developing a $27 billion natural-gas field in Rus- sia with a company, OAO No- vatek, hit by sanctions, a deal largely financed by Chinese banks. Other Western companies have also made headway in Iran. Last month, BP PLC bought its first oil shipment from Iran while Royal Dutch Shell PLC has signed a prelimi- nary deal to help develop a petrochemical plant there. But the flood of oil-industry development that Iran has wanted since nuclear sanctions were lifted in January has yet to materialize. The country has said it needs $30 billion of foreign in- vestment to reach its oil-in- dustry goals. Among those aims is ramping up its produc- tion of crude oil to six million barrels a day over the next de- cade, a target that, if reached, would make it the world’s fourth-largest producer behind only Russia, Saudi Arabia and the U.S. Iran produces about 3.7 mil- lion barrels of crude a day and is trying to reach four million barrels or more this year. The deal with Total will help Iran build out its natural- gas production. The South Pars field, which is shared by Iran and Qatar, contains 14,000 billion cubic meters of gas—8% of the world’s known reserves. The agreement marks the first time a Western oil com- pany has been contracted un- der the new terms for for- eign firms working in Iran. Those contracts still haven’t been released, but Iranian of- ficials have said they foresee allowing oil companies to make more money and work for longer than previous deals. The new terms have been a source of political conflict be- tween Mr. Rouhani’s adminis- tration, which is seeking to open up the country to foreign investment, and religious hard-liners who oppose more Western involvement in the country’s affairs. Iran has, by some estimates, the world’s largest natural-gas reserves, but its production ca- pacity and infrastructure to export the fuel are limited. Ira- nian officials have said they want to become a major ex- porter of natural gas to Eu- rope. Mr. Varzi said Mr. Rouhani’s administration was wise to make natural gas the focus of Iran’s first contract with a Western company. “It’s less politically controversial than oil,” he said. —Inti Landauro in Paris contributed to this article. U.S. Watch ZIKA VIRUS Potential Treatment For Zika Is Identified Scientists have identified a potential treatment for Zika— one that might protect both pregnant women and their fe- tuses, who are at risk of the se- vere birth defects that the virus can cause. A human antibody isolated from the blood of people who had been infected with Zika “markedly reduced” Zika infec- tion in pregnant mice, their fe- tuses and their placentas, ac- cording to a study published online Monday in the journal Nature. More research needs to be done to determine whether the antibody works similarly in humans, the study’s authors cautioned. It is likely to be several months be- fore it can be tested in hu- mans. The findings could help scien- tists develop a Zika vaccine by showing how the powerful anti- body works, the authors said. —Betsy McKay 8% Share of the world’s known gas reserves contained in the South Pars field, which is shared by Iran and Qatar. After a rape victim suffered a breakdown while testifying against her assailant, Houston prosecutors took an unusual step: They had the 25-year-old woman jailed for nearly a month last December to ensure she testified at a later hearing. The case—now the subject of a federal civil lawsuit filed against Harris County offi- cials by the woman, known only by her first name, Jenny—has shed light on a practice sometimes used by authorities in rape and do- mestic-violence crimes that victims’ advocates have tried to stop. It is also playing a central role in the district at- torney’s race in one of the na- tion’s most populous counties. Harris County District Attor- ney Devon Anderson, a Republi- can locked in a battle for re- election, has had to defend her office’s handling of the case af- ter facing criticism from her Democratic opponent. Calling it a “heartbreaking situation,” Ms. Anderson said the prosecutor in the case got a judge to approve a request to detain Jenny, who is bipolar, because she no lon- ger wanted to testify and was the only witness against a serial rapist. Following her break- down, Jenny was first hospital- ized and then taken to jail. “It was a choice of letting a serial rapist walk out of the courtroom or jailing her for a period of time in order to have her comply with the court or- der,” Ms. Anderson said. Jenny testified in her case. The defendant, Keith Hen- dricks, who pleaded not guilty and had previously faced charges in 11 other rapes and assaults, was convicted and sentenced to two life terms for her rape. But not before Jenny was mistakenly placed in the jail’s general population. Ms. Anderson has said she regretted the jail mix-up, not- ing the prosecutor had tried to ensure she was put in the psy- BY DAN FROSCH RapeVictim’s JailingUnderFire Another Earthquake Shakes Oklahoma DAMAGE CONTROL: Rubble spilled on to a street in Cushing, Okla., after a magnitude 5.0 earthquake Sunday night.
