Good news: Frontier Genetics are interested in my article!
And even better news: Mike got his friend Sam to translate the DEPAA video! Here’s the transcript: thank you so much.
Good Afternoon. Two men have been arrested in connection to the case of the death of Professor Marco Schoenberg, at the hotel ‘Rosalita’ in Calca. I cannot give names for legal reasons but can tell you that both belong to the group ‘DEPAA’ a militant pressure group dedicated to defending the rights of American Indians. The team in charge of the investigation have found some threatening emails from ‘DEPAA’ stored on the Schoenberg’s laptop. The group accuses Schoenberg and his former employer ‘Prometa’ of committing acts of biopiracy. Two men are being questioned but are yet to be charged. Some questions?
Question : Do you know what Scoenberg was doing here in Calca?
Answer: We have no information about that yet.
So we have a case number CLC0108-1314, a police site that takes a case number and then asks for more credentials, and only a little more information about the case. DEPAA are accusing Schoenberg and Prometha of biopiracy but also denying involvement. I haven’t heard back from the police in Peru, but they must know more.
I was keen to find out what was said at the top of the clip, but a friend emailed to let me know it was something like ‘Your son Rafael is on the phone’ and Barrera replies that he’ll call him later. Doesn’t look like a clue to me.
