Romania's parliament asked President Traian Basescu to step down on Wednesday, after his businessman brother was detained for allegedly taking a bribe to help shorten an underworld boss's jail sentence. Basescu has made it clear he will not resign and has denied all knowledge of his brother's dealings and said he was not exempt from the law. Earlier this month, a Romanian court ordered that 60-year-old Mircea Basescu, the president's younger brother, be detained for 30 days while prosecutors investigate allegations he took a bribe to help shorten the jail term of crime boss Sandu Anghel.
