Jury sides with Petco in death of boy from rat-bite fever

SAN DIEGO (AP) — A San Diego jury has sided with Petco in a lawsuit brought by the family of a 10-year-old boy who died after contracting an illness from bacteria from a rat purchased from the retailer.

KNSD-TV and KFMB-TV report that the jury found Thursday that Petco was not negligent or liable in the death of Aidan Pankey on June 12, 2013, after he was rushed to a hospital with severe stomach pains.

The San Diego County medical examiner’s office ruled the cause of death was streptobacillus moniliformis infection, known as rat-bite fever, after exposure to an infected rat.

The jury found that Petco did enough to warn the boy’s family of the possible risks and dangers of owning a pet rat, and therefore was not negligent in the boy’s death.

Kosovo citizen indicted for alleged war crimes in 1999

PRISTINA, Kosovo (AP) — Kosovo prosecutors have accused a citizen of war crimes during the 1998-99 war against Serbia.

The European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo, or EULEX, said Thursday that a police reservist, identified only as Z.V., was charged with war crimes against the civilian population while serving as a police reservist and at a detention center in northern Kosovo.

EULUX said the crimes included “brutal and unlawful killings, inhuman treatment causing immense suffering, application of measures of intimidation and terror, property confiscation, pillaging and stealing of property.”

Some 10,000 people died and 1,700 remain missing from the war.

Kosovo newspapers — Zeri and the online Gazeta Express — identified the suspect as an ethnic Serb who was wanted by Interpol. EULEX sources declined to comment on the suspect’s identity.

The newspapers wrote that the man, who arrested last year in neighboring Montenegro and extradited to Kosovo, was the only indicted person so far for the massacre of 116 Albanians in Vushtri, 28 kilometers (18 miles) north of the capital of Pristina, on May 2, 1999.

Civilians hidden in the Shala and Bajgora mountains had climbed down looking for food. The murder of 116 civilians was one of the worst massacres by Serb forces during the war, the papers said.

The local press also wrote that the man is accused of torturing people at the Smrekovnica prison in Mitrovica, 41 kilometers (25 miles) north of Pristina, which “changed into a concentration camp for Albanians arrested during the war.”

After the war, Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008, which Belgrade has not recognized.

France’s 11 presidential hopefuls stake out positions on TV

PARIS (AP) — The 11 men and women hoping to be France’s next president are appearing on national television seeking to sway voters in the nail-biting, unpredictable election campaign.

The candidates will each have 15 minutes Thursday night individually to answer questions about their stances, along with a brief conclusion at the end, in a prime-time program on France 2.

The four top candidates — centrist Emmanuel Macron, far-right Marine le Pen, conservative Francois Fillon and far-left Jean-Luc Melenchon— will be seeking to impress the 30 percent of French voters who are still undecided.

The French presidential race’s outcome is increasingly uncertain just three days before Sunday’s first-round vote. The two top vote-getters on Sunday will advance to the May 7 presidential runoff.

Moldovan businessman sentenced for role in $1 bln bank fraud

CHISINAU, Moldova (AP) — A court has sentenced a Moldovan businessman and former lawmaker to 18 years in prison for embezzlement and money laundering connected to a $1 billion bank fraud.

The court in the capital Chisinau on Thursday sentenced Veaceslav Platon and ordered him to pay the state 869 million lei ($45.2 million) in damages which he siphoned off from the Savings Bank, which subsequently went bankrupt.

In its ruling, the court also confiscated shares Platon held. The ruling is not final.

Platon denies wrongdoing and says the case against him is politically motivated. Platon, 44, was extradited from Ukraine in August.

The $1 billion, equal to one-eighth of the annual GDP of one of Europe’s poorest countries, disappeared from Moldovan banks before the 2014 parliamentary elections.
