The detective leading the Oscar Pistorius murdering inquiry has been replaced after it emerged that he himself faced seven charges of attempted murder dating back two years. Mr. Pistorius, the Paralympics sprint champion, denies murder saying he shot his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp thinking she was an intruder at his home. Andrew Harding reports from Pretoria.
据悉负责奥斯卡·皮斯托利斯谋杀案的侦探本人也面临7项指控,称他在两年前谋杀未遂,目前他已从调查组撤出。残奥会短跑冠军皮斯托利斯否认谋杀了女友瑞瓦·史蒂恩卡姆帕,称事发时以为她是侵入者。安德鲁·哈丁在比勒陀利亚报道。

Detective Hilton Botha was back in the spot light today for all the wrong reasons, the man who yesterday insisted Oscar Pistorius was a murderer and a flight risk was dramatically dropped from the investigation. National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega said Mr. Botha had been charged with attempted murder for a shooting incident in 2011.
侦探希尔顿·博塔今天因各种原因重新引起关注,他昨天还坚称奥斯卡·皮斯托利斯犯下谋杀罪,且有弃保潜逃的危险,目前这名侦探已突然被调出调查组。国家警察总长耶嘉说,博塔2011年被指控在一场枪击案中试图谋杀。

"For that reason, I have decided to assign this very important matter, this very important investigation under the leadership and stewardship of the divisional commissioner of detective services Lieutenant-General Moonoo. A decision on whether to grant Mr. Pistorius bail is expected on Friday."
“因此,我决定将这件非常重大的事件,这件非常重要的调查交给侦察局部门专员穆尼副总警监负责领导和管理。周五将就是否允许保释皮斯托利斯进行决定。”

The United Nations has formally rejected a claim for the compensation of victims of a cholera outbreak in Haiti that scientists have traced to a UN base there. Barbara Plett reports from the United Nations in New York.
科学家查明海地爆发的一场霍乱源于联合国驻当地总部,但联合国已正式驳回了受害者的索赔要求。Barbara Plett在纽约联合国总部报道。

In a terse statement, the spokesman for the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said the damages claim was not receivable under a convention that grants the United Nations immunity for its actions. Families of the victims are demanding millions of dollars in compensation, accusing the UN of introducing the disease to Haiti. The UN has never admitted responsibility despite mounting evidence that the epidemic was caused by poor sanitation at a peace-keeping camp. A lawyer for the cholera victims told the BBC that UN immunity could not mean impunity and said the case would now be pursued in a national court.
联合国秘书长潘基文发表简短声明,称联合国拥有豁免权,因此不接受索赔要求。受害者家属要求赔偿数百万美元,称联合国将该疾病带入海地。尽管有越来越多证据表明这场传染病是由维和营地不佳的卫生设施引起的,但联合国从未承认应对此负责。霍乱受害者的律师告诉BBC,联合国豁免权并不意味着不受惩罚,称将把此案交由国家法院审理。

The former president of Haiti Jean-Claude Duvalier has failed to appear in court in Port-au-Prince for a hearing about human rights abuses during his rule in the 1970s and 80s. Mark Doyle reports.
海地前总统让-克洛德·杜瓦利埃被控在20世纪70-80年代执政期间犯下侵犯人权罪,但他未能出席太子港的法庭。马克·多伊勒报道。

The courtroom in the Capital Port-au-Prince was packed, relatives of victims seeking justice, lawyers in black robes, human rights observers and journalists. But the 61-year-old "Baby Doc" Duvalier, that name from the past which Haitians can never forget, didn’t turn up. At the last minute, he filed an appeal in another court which his lawyer said excused him from what would have been the first time he'd ever faced his victims in public. A well-known Haitian human rights lawyer said Duvalier is trying to control the justice system like he did when he was a dictator.
首都太子港的法院挤满了寻求正义的受害者亲属、身穿黑袍的律师、人权观察家和记者们。但海地人不会忘记的61岁“宝贝督”杜瓦利埃未能出庭,在最后关头,他向另一家法庭提交申诉,他的律师称这就使他免于公开首次面对受害者。海地一位知名的人权律师称杜瓦利埃试图像以前做独裁者时那样控制司法系统。

Three British men have been found guilty of planning a series of attacks that prosecutors said could have been bigger than the London Bombings of 2005.

三名英国男子被判策划系列袭击罪,检察官称案情比2005年伦敦爆炸案还严重。来自英格兰中部伯明翰的Irfan Naseer, Irfan Khalid和Ashik Ali试图在全国人口密集地区引爆8枚背包炸弹。

Police in Singapore said that the suspect, alleged to be the central figure at an International football match-fixing ring, is helping them with their investigations.

The Catholic Church in Germany says it will allow its hospitals to give the morning-after-pill to women who have been raped. However, Germany bishops said that the pill would be given only to prevent pregnancy not to induce abortion. The decision comes after a public outcry over the refusal by two church-run hospitals to provide a morning-after-pill to a raped victim.
德国天主教堂称将允许其医院给遭强奸的妇女紧急避孕药。然而,德国主教称这些药物只用来避孕,而不是用来堕胎。此前,两家教堂医院拒绝向一名强奸受害者提供紧急避孕药,由此引发公众谴责。
