World - Indonesian president`s advisers urge him to drop police chief pick

A team of advisers appointed by Indonesian President Joko Widodo urged him on Wednesday to withdraw his nomination for national police chief after the anti-graft agency declared the candidate a suspect in a bribery case. The declaration by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) that Widodo`s nominee, General Budi Gunawan, was a suspect has presented the president with his biggest political test since taking office in October. Gunawan has dismissed any suggestion of corruption. After the KPK announcement, Widodo set up a team of nine former law enforcement officials and legal experts to advise him on how to proceed.

World - UN panel on N. Korea rights says report still stands

`The partial retraction of Shin Dong-hyuk of the testimony he gave to the Commission of Inquiry on North Korea is not significant for the report, conclusions or recommendations of the commission,` said retired Australian judge Michael Kirby. `In the big picture of gross abuses of human rights of the entire population of North Korea over more than 65 years, his experience -- although very important to him and his family -- is not critical to the inquiry,` he added. In a statement carried by the North`s official KCNA news agency, the spokesman noted that Shin was one of the best-known defectors who testified to Kirby`s panel. The commission`s conclusion that North Korea was committing human rights violations `without parallel in the contemporary world` was the basis of a resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly last month.

World - Turkey ex-ministers escape trial over graft scandal

Four Turkish ex-ministers who resigned over a 2013 graft scandal that shook President Recep Tayyip Erdogan`s government will not have to stand trial, a commission ruled Monday, in a decision the opposition called a `black day` for democracy. The parliamentary commission`s decision appears to draw a line under the December 2013 scandal which presented Erdogan, then prime minister, with one of the biggest crises of his rule over Turkey. Erdogan angrily claimed the scandal was the brainchild of his ally-turned-foe, the US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, whose Hizmet (Service) group the authorities have since moved to destroy with dozens of arrests which also continued on Monday. The commission -- dominated by MPs from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) -- ruled against sending the cases to the Supreme Council court, its chairman Hakki Koylu said on national television.

World - Nigeria row over opposition candidate`s school reports

The ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has raised doubts about whether President Goodluck Jonathan`s main challenger, Muhammadu Buhari, obtained his school-leaving qualification. Under Nigerian law presidential candidates must have the certificate as a minimum requirement to run for office. The former army general, who headed a military government for 20 months from December 1983 after seizing power in a coup, has dismissed the claims as `desperation`. `It is a practice in the Nigerian Army that before candidates are shortlisted for commissioning into the officers` cadre of the Service, the Selection Board verifies the original copies of credentials that are presented,` said spokesman Olajide Laleye.

World - Charlie Hebdo issue offered on eBay for thousands of euros

Copies of the latest edition of the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, which sold out within hours across France on Wednesday, are being offered on eBay for thousands of euros, prompting a media watchdog to blast sellers for `indecent` profiteering. The online selling and auction site had one vendor listing the new Charlie Hebdo issues at 15,000 euros ($17,680) for immediate purchase, compared to the cover price of just three euros. `What is happening on eBay... is absolutely indecent,` said its director, Christophe Deloire. Later eBay announced it was banning scanned and digital copies of the Charlie Hebdo magazine, adding that it would also hand over the commissions it received on sales of the edition and other paraphernalia sold on its French website.
