Five members of a South Korean family were found guilty by the District Court of Frankfurt on Monday, on charges of performing an exorcism on a 41-year old woman, who later died due to injuries caused by the ritual. A 44-year old cousin of the victim was convicted to six years of imprisonment, while his 21-year-old son and 19-year-old daughter will likely receive one-to-two years of imprisonment. The youngest of the co-defendants, two 16 year olds including the victim's son, are likely to receive two years of probation, resulting in a return to their home in Korea, reports say. The 41-year-old woman's corpse was found in a room at Frankfurt's InterContinental Hotel in December 2015. The case trial has been taking place since October 2016.

Distributors used to charge as much as a 196% margin when supplying DES, used in a majority of stenting procedures, to hospitals, according to NPPA. Hospitals then charged over 650% when billing the devices to patients, while distributors supplying directly to patients would enjoy as much as 892% in margins. Now, patients purchasing stents at their maximum price wont pay hospitals margins of more than Rs 2,400 on DES and BVS and about Rs 581 on BMS. The margin has been built into the calculation of the ceiling price and, except for local sales taxes or VAT, hospitals can’t levy additional charges over and above the ceiling price, specified NPPA. The margin also adequately covers any hospital handling charges, added the regulator. “Considering the high-end value market of coronary stents, this 8% trade margin would cover margins across the trade channels working from the level of manufacturer/importer to the end user i.

Monks and police scuffled on Monday at a Buddhist temple in Thailand where security forces are trying to arrest an influential former abbot on money-laundering charges. The standoff at the scandal-hit Dhammakaya Temple represents one of the biggest challenges to the authority of Thailand's junta since it took power in 2014. Police said they would try to avoid violence while threatening arrest for followers of the sprawling temple who have defied orders to leave and instead flocked there, hampering the search for 72-year-old Phra Dhammachayo. With tension rising four days after the military government ordered emergency powers to be used in the search, monks and police pushed and shoved at one of the temple gates. A Reuters photographer said there were no serious injuries. The actions by police were a violation of international law, the temple said in an open letter to Thailand's National Human Rights Commission.

KUALA LUMPUR: A federal ministry secretary-general and his son detained by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) last month for alleged corruption and power abuse are expected to be charged for graft tomorrow. The 59-year-old secretary-general who is a Datuk and his 35-year-old son were detained again today at 10.30am by the Kedah MACC and will be taken to the Jalan Duta and Shah Alam courts respectively early on Tuesday to face the charges. The Datuk was held by the MACC on Jan 4 for allegedly taking kickbacks from the award of contracts to private companies he favoured. His son was also detained on the same day allegedly being in cahoots with his father. The men were picked up at their Subang Jaya house by an MACC raiding party that recovered gold bars, cash, luxury handbags and watches worth over RM5 million in a search at the place.

Cameroon has burned more than three tons of pangolin skins and scales seized from smugglers and destined for Asian countries. The central African state says by burning the skins of the world's most trafficked mammal and arresting smugglers, it is sending strong signals that Cameroon will no longer be a country where poaching and smuggling run rampant. Philip Ngole Ngwese, Cameroon's Minister of Forestry and Wildlife says the pangolin skins and scales were seized on three occasions at the Douala and Yaounde international airports. He says seven suspects are answering charges in Cameroon law courts. He says they have educated the population that although pangolins are good to eat and are in high demand in Asian countries, they are now totally protected and should never be killed. He says all licenses to hunt in Cameroon indicate that pangolins should not be killed.

Here again, American Platinum Pro falls short, as these travelers have the same benefits as Gold and Platinum members: free same-day standby and waived-award processing charges on last-minute award tickets (both of which cost non-elites $75). Delta, on the other hand, not only waives same-day confirmed fees and same-day standby fees for Platinum Medallions; it'll also waive the $150 award redeposit and reissue fee when you need to modify or cancel an award ticket. I used this benefit quite frequently as a Platinum Medallion to lock in the perfect award routing, so it can wind up being quite valuable. Finally, United takes a similar approach as that of Delta, waiving its $75 same-day change fee and offering additional discounts on award ticket change fees. You'll pay nothing (instead of $75) for changing or canceling an award more than 60 days before departure and $50 (instead of $125) if you change or cancel an award within 60 days.

Egypt's top court upheld death sentences for 10 men on Monday for their part in Egypt's worst violence at a football stadium, in which more than 70 fans were killed in February 2012. Many of the dead were crushed when panicked fans tried to escape from the Port Said stadium after a post-match pitch invasion by supporters of the local side al-Masry. Others fell or were thrown from terraces, witnesses said at the time. The verdict from the Court of Cassation, which also upheld a lower court's sentencing of 10 men to 15 years in jail, 14 men to 10 years, and 15 men to five years, is final and cannot be appealed. The charges included murder and attempted murder. Among those who received a five-year sentence was the former Port Said police chief. Football matches are often a flashpoint for violence in Egypt. The teams in the Port Said incident - al-Masry and Cairo's al-Ahli - are longtime rivals.
