Bucharest: A court Friday rejected an appeal of the Romanian president`s younger brother, following which he will have to remain in custody for a month.

Bucharest`s Court of Appeals rejected an appeal of President Traian Basescu`s brother Mircea Basescu and ordered him to remain in custody up to 30 days, Xinhua reported.
The ruling is final for Basescu, who has been accused by the National Anti-corruption Directorate (DNA) of taking a bribe from the family of a crime boss who is facing a trial for murder attempt.

Mircea Basescu is in police custody since last Friday, following a decision made by the Bucharest Court, which ruled a 30-day preventive arrest term for him, upon the request of DNA prosecutors.
