Australian police, along with rescuers, found 52-year-old Australian Tamra McBeath-Riley alive after spending 12 days in a desert area in central Australia. 

According to the BBC, the woman and her two friends were traveling by car almost two weeks ago, but their vehicle became bogged in the Finke River .

According to Macbeth-Riley, for three days they tried to get the car out, but nothing worked. The three drank nearly all the water and vodka they were carrying with them and decided they needed to find another shelter and source of water. They abandoned the car and left a note in it, indicating in which direction they were going.

"During the day it's just really hot so we dug ourselves under the car. At night [we] could sleep in the car."

First, they stumbled across a cattle watering hole and drank from it before moving on to find a better location with shelter from the sun. Then McBeath-Riley’s two friends decided to head north on the highway, while the woman was left alone at the source of water with a dog that couldn't stand the journey in such a hot climate.

The decision to split up was not easy, McBeath-Riley says. ABC reported.

"They had very limited food — they had a packet of biscuits and some beef noodles between them and that obviously didn't last them very long," "They had a TomTom [GPS] and a compass with them. Their intention was to go north towards the Stuart Highway, which is about 22km from where they have left.”, the police chief said.

McBeath-Riley will be taken to a hospital to receive treatment for dehydration and sunburn. Ms Hockridge and Mr Tran remain missing.

(DF) Parliamentary Committee Hears Out Nominees for Counter-corruption Commission Chairperson

(DF) Parliamentary Committee Hears Out Nominees for Counter-corruption Commission Chairperson

December 3 (BTA)

The office of the chairperson of the CUAAFC has been vacant
since July, when a real estate scandal forced the then chair,
Plamen Georgiev, to resign. After he left the CUAAFC, he became
a rank-and-file prosecutor, but shortly after that the
government appointed him Bulgarian Consul in Valencia and he
left for Spain.

At Tuesday's hearing, the two candidates for the job, outgoing
Prosecutor General Sotir Tsatsarov and MP Simeon Naidenov of the
 Volya parliamentary group, presented their concepts about the
CUAAFC's work, after which members of the parliamentary
Anti-corruption Committee and NGOs asked them questions
concerning their concepts.

Tsatsarov officially confirmed earlier reports that the National
 Revenue Agency did not detect any wrongdoing during a probe
into the financial interests and the incomes of Georgiev, the
former CUAAFC chair. The probe was ordered by Tsatsarov in his
capacity as Prosecutor General amid the real estate scandal.

Both Tsatsarov and Naidenov disapproved of the idea about
counter-corruption education in early childhood.

In his concept, Naidenov lays particular emphasis on the
CUAAFC's accountability and the need for a campaign to raise
public awareness of the problem of corruption. He finds it
necessary to increase the CUAAFC directorates and to recruit new
 employees.

The main highlights in Tsatsarov's concept are administration
and human resources management. He sees a need to downsize the
CUAAFC staff and restructure the departments. Tsatsarov calls
for setting up an advisory board of experts and scientists and a
 public board with the CUAAFC. He also proposes media monitoring
 to ensure timely response to any evidence of wrongdoing.
Conflict-of-interest declarations should be changed, he said,
and universal guidelines should be adopted for filling them out.

Tsatsarov believes that too many categories of senior public
officials are required to submit conflict-of-interest
declarations. While it may not be advisable to exempt all
municipal councillors from the requirement, it may be a good
idea to limit them to the municipal councillors in the national
capital Sofia, the regional capitals and other towns above a
certain population size, he suggested. NV/VE

Bulgaria, Greece and North Macedonia will defend one and the same sky, President Radev says

The NATO summit in London is an opportunity for Bulgaria to establish itself as a factor of stability in the Balkans and to uphold its national interest, said President Rumen Radev. We must not miss the historic opportunity to protect the airspace of North Macedonia, the Bulgarian head of state emphasized. While talks on this issue have been delayed by the Bulgarian side until the acquisition of new aircraft, Greece has concluded an agreement on the mission. With our current capacity, we can fulfill the task to the full, explained Radev, who is also a reserve general in the Bulgarian military aviation. A trilateral Bulgarian - North Macedonian - Greek meeting on the topic has already been arranged, the president added.
