日本股市再度大跌

日本股市星期三再度大跌,原因是美国中央银行行长即将在美国国会进行关键作证,投资者担心欧洲银行金融状况不佳。

日经指数星期二猛跌918点,即下跌5.40%。星期三,又再下跌372点,即2.3%,跌到15,713.39点。这是2014年10月以来的最低点。日经指数本月已经下跌10%,进入熊市范围。

澳大利亚股市标普/ ASX 200指数下跌百分之一多一点,收盘时为4,775.70。上海、香港、台北和首尔股市因为农历新年而休市。

投资者对欧洲一些最大的银行是否有足够的资本储备应对股价下跌感到怀疑。

美国联邦储备委员会主席耶林星期三和星期四将在美国国会几个重要委员会作证。国会议员们将提出美国目前经济状况、增加利率的前景、经济增长和失业率等问题。

Japanese Stocks Again Fall Sharply

Japanese stocks sustained another day of huge losses Wednesday thanks to investor worries about the financial health of European banks ahead of key congressional testimony by the head of the U.S. central bank.

One day after losing a staggering 918 points, or 5.40 percent, the Nikkei index dropped 372 points, or 2.3 percent, to end the day at 15,713.39, its lowest mark since October 2014. The Nikkei is down just over 10 percent this month, placing the index in "bear market" territory.

Australia's benchmark S&P/ASX 200 dropped just over one percent to close at 4,775.70. Indexes in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei and Seoul remained closed for the Lunar New Year.

Investors are questioning whether some of Europe's biggest banks have sufficient capital reserves on hand to buffer against a slump in their share prices.

The current state of the U.S. economy, as well as the outlook for interest rate increases, growth and unemployment, are on the agenda Wednesday and Thursday when Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen testifies before key congressional committees.

罗马尼亚维持对共产党时代一名罪犯20年徒刑的原判

罗马尼亚一家上诉法庭维持了对一名男子20年有期徒刑的原判。此人因为曾经管理共产党时代一所臭名昭著的监狱而被判犯有反人类罪。

布加勒斯特高等法院星期三驳回了90岁的亚力山大·威西奈斯库提起的上诉。威西奈斯库2015年7月被定罪,他曾经是关押政治犯的拉姆尼库·萨拉特监狱的负责人。在那里,犯人被单独监禁,彼此不许说话,而且要忍饥挨饿,遭受毒打。

威西奈斯库的律师说,他当时只是在服从命令,并没有违反法律。

判决的支持者们说,此项判决为审判共产党时期的罪案树立了一个重要的先例。除威西奈斯库之外,罗马尼亚前苏联集团时期仅有的另外一位被指控犯有反人类罪的人是独裁者齐奥塞斯库。他在1989年被审判并处决。

Romania Upholds 20-year Term for Communist-era Criminal

Romanian appeals court has upheld a 20-year jail term for a man who ran a notorious communist-era prison and was convicted of crimes against humanity.

The Bucharest High Court on Wednesday rejected an appeal from 90-year-old Alexandru Visinescu, who was convicted in July 2015. He ran the Ramnicu Sarat prison for political detainees, where all prisoners were kept in solitary confinement, could not speak to each other, and were starved and beaten.

Visinescu's lawyers said he was only obeying orders and did not break the law.

Supporters of the ruling say it sets an important precedent for communist-era crimes. Besides Visinescu, the only other person who has been charged with crimes against humanity from Romania's brutal Soviet Bloc days is dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, who was tried and executed in 1989.
