The European Commission on Tuesday urged EU governments to hit Belize, Cambodia and Guinea with trade sanctions over illegal fishing, while warning South Korea, Ghana and Curacao they may be next. The European Union executive called for action against the first three with no 'credible progress' made since hitting them with so-called 'yellow cards' last year along with five others. Once placed on an official list of "non-cooperating countries" in the fight against illegal fishing, related products from those territories will find themselves all-but shut out of the EU market of half a billion consumers. The Commission also flagged up a new round of 'yellow cards' which puts key free-trade partner South Korea, Ghana and Caribbean island Curacao under mounting pressure to meet international obligations.
By Barbara Liston ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) - Computer software pioneer John McAfee said on Wednesday he will testify willingly about the murder of his American neighbor in Belize last year, as he seeks to defend himself from a wrongful death lawsuit that blames him for the killing. McAfee, 68, was named by police in Belize as a person of interest in the November 11, 2012, shooting of Gregory Faull, but he fled the small Central American country before he could be questioned. McAfee denies involvement in the death of Faull, an Orlando contractor and restaurant owner. I've told the police in Belize that I will sit for questioning in any neutral country in the world ... I just will not go to Belize," McAfee said.
