Hainan provincial health authorities have revoked Boao Yinfeng Healthcare International H
ospital’s business license, for illegally administering HPV 9-valent vaccines, according to a statement Sunday.
Located in the Boao Lecheng International Medical Tourism Pilot Zone, the hospit
al has since January last year vaccinated 37 customers with HPV 9-valent, charging each 9,000 yuan.
They did so without obtaining an official vaccination outpatient license, said the statement.
It said the local health commission of Qionghai, where the Boao pilot zone is loc
ated, on April 18 issued the hospital a notice of penalties, including a warning, confiscati
on of illegal income, a fine of 8,000 yuan, and a revocation of its business license as a medical institution.
ce because of his wide-ranging portfolio, which includes a Middle East peace proposal, and b
ecause of heightened scrutiny on Kushner’s inability to secure a clearance, sources said. His daughter’s portfolio did not require a high level secu
rity clearance, though as a senior adviser who sits in meetings with other senior officials, she is privy to sensitive inform
ation.On Tuesday, the White House rebuffed a request from House Oversight Com
mittee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, who asked for documents pertaining to the security clearance pro
cess. White House counsel Pat Cipollone said the committee’s request for the information was “without legal suppo
rt, clearly premature, and suggests a breach of the constitutionally required accommodation process.”The White House’s rejecti
on increases the chances of a subpoena from the House.CNN’s Gloria Borger and Maegan Vazquez contributed to this report.
One of the two witnesses says the committee has a photograph of a younger Geovanis apparently posing in a portrait with three partially clo
thed women. The portrait, once displayed in a Russian gallery under the title “The Capitalist,” depicts the subjects in front of a picture of th
e former Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. It’s not clear whether the portrait is a single photograph or a composite.
The witness told CNN that they were shown the photograph during questioning.A thi
rd witness has alleged in written testimony, seen by CNN, that Geovanis may be valuable in the mystery of
whether Russia has material on Trump that could be personally embarrassing to him.
Known by the nickname “Geo” to his friends, Geovanis was born in Brockton, Mass
achusetts, and is a graduate of Trump’s alma mater, the Wharton School at the Un
iversity of Pennsylvania. After starting his career in finance, Geovanis went to Moscow to work for a Russian ve
nture of a company called Brooke Group, which owned land earmarked for the site of a proposed Trump Tower. W
hen Trump came to town to promote the project, sources say, it was Geovanis’ job to show him around.
Also on the trip were Brooke Group’s owners, the real estate moguls Bennett LeBow and How
ard Lorber, who went on to become substantial donors to Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Trump pers
onally acknowledged the pair from the podium after he won the 2016 New York Republican primary.
Brazil’s new president, Jair Bossonalo, said in an exclusive media interview Wednesday that he
was open to the possibility of future US military bases in Brazil and would like to consult with the US side.
Brazil has long pursued an independent foreign policy. Some media interpreted that allowing the United
States to set up military bases would mean a “sharp turn” in the foreign policy of the South American power.
Bossonalo also criticized Venezuela, the old rival of the United States in South America, and expressed
concern about the participation of Russian warplanes in Venezuelan air force exercises.
Great Diplomatic Turn
Brazilian Television Systems aired an interview with Bossonalo on the 3rd. This is his first interview since
he took office on January 1st. He talked about many topics of domestic and foreign affairs.
Reporters asked Bossonalo if the United States would be allowed to set up military bases on Brazilian territory.
He answered, of course, that he was willing to negotiate this possibility. “It depends on what happens in the world and who knows if we need to talk about it in the future.”
According to him, the new administration will strengthen economic relations with the
United States, as well as develop military relations and sign agreements in the military field. “We
don’t want to be a superpower in South America, but I think we should have the highest status.”
The United States regards Latin America, which includes Central and South America, as its backyard,
and exerted overwhelming influence on the region during the Cold War. Agence France-Presse and Reuters reported that for many years, Brazil’s
left-wing or centrist governments have pursued independent diplomacy free from American influence. The Left-wing government led by the
Labour Party has been playing against the United States on the international stage from time to time. Bossonalo sought to reorient Brazil’s
diplomacy and alliance with the United States in some respects. Speaking on the phone with Secretary
of State Mike Pompeo on the 2nd, he said that the two countries are now “friends”.
On the same day, in a speech to police in Rio de Janeiro, the state capital, Wilson Witzer, an ally of Bossonalo,
said Brazil needed “its own Guantanamo prison” and “terrorists to be locked up so that society can get rid of them completely”.
The United States established a military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 1903, and a prison in the base in 2002, where hundreds of terror
suspects were detained. The prison is notorious for its abuse scandal. Since the victory of the 1959 revolution,
Cuba has opposed the existence of US military bases and demanded the withdrawal of US troops.
