German firms investigated over faulty batteries link to missing Argentine submarine
News ImageArgentine parliamentarians are reportedly investigating two German firms over the replacement of batteries on the missing submarine ARA San Juan, alleging bribes were paid to secure contracts and inferior products used. The German Interior Ministry has received a request for information from the Foreign Affairs Commission of the Argentine parliament, officials confirmed to public broadcaster Bayerische Rundfunk (BR). The suspicion exists that the batteries that were replaced were not, in part or at all, of the quality that they should have been. We dont know either where they came from, whether from Germany or from another country. Because of this we want to know what technicians were there and who signed saying: good, this is repaired, Cornelia Schmidt-Liermann, head of the Argentine parliamentary commission, said according to the network. A woman holds a placard with a message that reads in Spanish: "We are with you, brave ones of the ARA San Juan," Credit: Esteban Felix/AP She said it was believed that bribes may have been paid to secure contracts for the renovation, and that German companies were involved. The two firms from which the commission has requested information - Ferrostaal and EnerSys-Hawker - signed a contract for 5.1 million euros to replace 964 batteries on the German-built sub, BR reported. Ferrostaal has denied any responsibility, saying its role was only to mediate in the contract, for which it received a commission. EnerSys-Hawker has not yet responded publicly. Questions have been mounting in Argentina over the state of the batteries on the ARA San Juan, of which there is still no trace almost a month after its November 15 disappearance. The vessel had reported a fault with its batteries shortly before it lost contact and had been ordered to return to the Mar de Plata naval base. Three hours later, an acoustic event believed to be an underwater explosion was detected close to the subs last known location. Search for the missing Argentinian submarine San Juan The final communication from the ARA San Juan said an entry of seawater had caused a short-circuit in the batteries and the beginnings of a fire. Families of the 44 crew members and politicians have raised questions over the submarines mid-life renovation, which was completed in 2014. One aspect under scrutiny is the decision to replace all internal elements of the batteries but retain the old casings. The Argentine minister of defence, Oscar Aguad, last week (Tuesday) revealed "suspicions" that there had been corruption in the five-year renovation process, which took place under the previous government of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. He told TV channel Todo Noticias there were a number of "anomalies" that indicated overcharging and the use of sub-standard products. Mr Aguad said a legal complaint had been filed in the past over alleged corruption in the refit, but that it was "swept under the rug" without ever being investigated.

China looks to nuclear option to ease winter heating woes
News ImageBy David Stanway SHANGHAI (Reuters) - With its smog-prone north desperate to slash coal consumption, China is looking to deploy nuclear power to provide reliable winter heating, raising public safety concerns - though developers say the risks are minimal. State-owned China National Nuclear Corp (CNNC) recently conducted a successful 168-hour trial run in Beijing for a small, dedicated "district heating reactor" (DHR) it has named the "Yanlong". With the north facing natural gas shortages as cities switch away from coal, CNNC presented the "DHR-400" as an alternative heat supplier for the region, with each 400-megawatt unit capable of warming 200,000 urban households.

News ImageWASHINGTON (AP) When President Donald Trump's U.N. ambassador recently urged the world to sever diplomatic ties with North Korea, she was sketchy on the details: Should all embassies close? How about those providing the U.S. intelligence from the largely inscrutable country? And what of Sweden, which helps with imprisoned Americans? Nikki Haley's recent call to action underscores the challenge for the United States as it tries to advance a nonmilitary strategy for resolving the nuclear standoff with North Korea. Isolating the reclusive, totalitarian state has been a central component of the U.S. plan, even though Washington says it remains open to talks.

The unusual suspects: Rise of the mafia godmothers
News ImageThey say it's a family business, but traditionallywomen in the Italianmafiawere prison messengers or bargaining chips in dynasty marriages to create alliances between clans. Now as male mob bosses languish in jail, mafiosas are increasingly stepping up to head crime families - and getting caught in the process. After seven years behind bars, one such godmother - Maria Angela Di Trapani - was freed from prison in 2015 and for the last two years has allegedly been quietly moving up through the secretive, male-dominated ranks of Sicily's Cosa Nostra. On Tuesday, the 49-year-old wife of notorious boss Salvino Madonia was among 25 people arrested in a sweeping Palermo raid, accused once again ofmafiacrimes, including orchestrating bold intimidation tactics to scare business owners into paying a fearedmafiatax known as the pizzo. She operates like a man, various mob bosses were recorded saying in prison about Di Trapani - the ultimate compliment in the man-of-honour hyper macho world of Cosa Nostra, which always gave an important role to women behind the scenes, but rarely officially. Investigators say one popular cake shop in Palermo paid 5000 in extortion money. Another bar in a well-known central square named after Pope John Paul II paid 750 at Easter, and again at Christmas. A bustling pizzeria shelled out 3000. Italian anti-Mafia and counterterrorism prosecutor Federico Cafiero De Raho delivers his speech during a meeting in Milan, Italy Credit: AP Photo/Antonio Calanni I'll never forget the look she gave me from her balcony when she called out to me, warning me to be careful what I said, said one businesswoman in Di Trapanis neighbourhood. Her eyes were like ice. The Resuttana clan paid visits to tyre shops, local gyms, and some shopkeepers who didnt pay went to work the next morning to find their rolldown storefront gates superglued shut or set alight. This apparent increase in equal opportunities is a sign the mob is weakening, says John Dickie, professor of Italian Studies at University College London and author of several bestselling books about organised crime. About Italian Mafias It is actually a symptom of crisis that we are seeing more women in Cosa Nostra, he says. It is an attempt to shore up the organisation in trouble, they are the avatars of the men the wives and sisters of particularly fearsome or prestigious bosses, but they wouldnt be doing it if loads of men werent in jail. A crackdown on organised crime over the last three decades has failed to take down themafia, but has effectively put a generation of bosses behind bars. Some of them are dying there, including two of the top Godfathers from the Corleone faction, Bernardo Provenzano, who died of cancer in 2016 while serving time in a Milan prison, and Salvatore Toto Riina who died of cancer last month while imprisoned in Parma. The day after he died, Riinas daughter changed her Facebook profile picture to a woman with her finger to her lips and the message shhh. Investigators said this week that Di Trapani was involved in the reshuffling going on between clans loyal to the Corleonesi in the wake of Riinas death. Since many of the male bosses are in prison, the women, who know everything that is happening in themafiafamilies, are not only the connection between the bosses in prison and the outside world, but are increasingly filling the gaps and doing what their husbands, brothers or fathers did, said Italian journalist andmafiaexpert Attilio Bolzoni on RepubblicaTV. The younger sister of the Graviano brothers, Filippo and Giuseppe, has gained influence for her capacity to quickly and effectively move large amounts of money, even though both boss brothers are in prison. Those who arent caught, like Italys most wanted fugitive Matteo Messina Denaro often turn to the women in their families for help hiding. Messina Denaros sister, Patrizia, took over several roles in his absence and was among the few who knew how to find him, until she too, landed in jail, where she remains today, still silent about her brothers whereabouts.

Thousands march in Tel Aviv to protest against corruption and Netanyahu government
News ImageThousands of Israelis protested in Tel Aviv on Saturday for the second consecutive week against government corruption and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is under criminal investigation over allegations of abuse of office. Police estimated the number of demonstrators at about 10,000 and they followed last Saturday's demonstration, which was by far the largest of the recent weekly anti-corruption protests when an estimated 20,000 people participated. The protests have been sparked by corruption allegations against Netanyahu, who denies any wrongdoing. The four-term leader is suspected of involvement in two cases. The first involves receiving gifts from wealthy businessmen and the second involves negotiating a deal with a newspaper owner for better coverage in return for curbs on a rival daily. Israelis take part in a demonstration under the name "March of Shame" to protest against government corruption and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Credit: Jack Guez/AFP If charged, he would come under heavy pressure to resign or could call an election to test whether he still had a mandate to govern. Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party said in a Facebook post that the protest was a left-wing demonstration. It called on all Israelis to back their prime minister as he defends Israel against international criticism following U.S. President Donald Trump's acceptance of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "Instead of uniting with all the people behind Jerusalem and showing the world a unified front, the left cannot contain itself and it prefers to create division," part of the statement said. Over weeks of demonstrations, protesters have identified themselves as supporting both left- and right-wing parties. On Saturday they held banners reading: "Neither left, nor right (we demand) integrity," "We are fed up with corrupt (politicians)" and "Sweep the corrupt away."
