The 33-year-old Kaiserslautern striker last played for Cameroon in the World Cup qualifying play-off first-leg against Tunisia on 13 October.
He was not selected for the return leg which the Indomitable Lions won 4-1 to book their place at this summer’s tournament in Brazil.
Idrissou, who is in good for for his German side and scored eight goals in the Bundesliga this term, has been picked to cover for the injured Achille Webo.
Finke is without injured midfielder Stephane Mbia but Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik is in the squad despite carrying a knock on his left thigh.
Eighteen-year-old centre-back Frank Bagnack, who plays for the Barcelona B team, has been handed his first call-up.
No Cameroon-based players have been called to the squad at a time when Finke is rounding up a camp for local players, many of whom hoped would find their way into the national team.
Twenty-five people were charged Thursday with obtaining at least $75 million in fraudulent Medicaid payments from the District of Columbia government, a series of cases that federal prosecutors said added up to the largest health-care fraud in the city’s history.
The alleged schemes, which prosecutors said were similar but not necessarily part of a unified conspiracy, involved bogus claims for home care services, a category of Medicaid claim that has grown dramatically in the city over the past 8 years. The uptick in billings for home care — from $40 million in 2006 to $280 million last year — was part of what tipped off authorities to illegal activity, U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen said.
“We concluded that much of the growth was due to aggressive networks of fraudsters paying kickbacks to beneficiaries to manufacture false claims for nonexistent services,” Machen said, later adding: “Medicaid fraud in the District of Columbia is at epidemic levels.”
Prosecutors say many of the defendants persuaded patients to fake illness or injury so they could bill Medicaid for home care they didn’t receive. Some of those patients received kickbacks, authorities said, although no patients have been charged. Those charged include the owners of home-care firms and nurse staffing agencies, home-care aides and recruiters who signed up patients.
Among those charged was Florence Bikundi, 51, of Bowie, Md., the owner of a home care agency who had lost her nursing license and was barred from participating in Medicaid. Authorities said that by using aliases, she was able to bill the city for $75 million in Medicaid payments.
Machen said it wasn’t clear whether any of those payments went to legitimate home care services, but Bikundi was able to amass significant personal wealth, authorities said. Among the property seized from her were millions of dollars from 46 bank accounts, a 7,300-square-foot home valued at $927,000 and five luxury vehicles.
No attorney was listed in court records for Bikundi, who is in custody, and no one answered a call to her home Thursday afternoon.
Machen said there wasn’t any particular weakness in the district’s Medicaid program that made it vulnerable to bogus claims, and he noted that similar schemes have been perpetrated in other cities, including Detroit and Miami. The investigation is ongoing, and authorities said it was impossible to put a dollar amount on the fraudulent billings, although the indictments not involving Bikundi outlined schemes valued at less than $500,000.
“These numbers could likely grow. This is what we know so far,” Machen said.
A dozen people were charged in five federal indictments that were unsealed Thursday. Thirteen others were charged with fraud in D.C. Superior Court. All but three were in custody Thursday afternoon, authorities said.
Many of those charged are immigrants from Cameroon in west Africa, but authorities did not go into detail about their nationalities.

FIVB Yaoundé, Cameroon, February 18, 2014 – Cameroon booked a ticket to the FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship 2014 Poland by winning Pool T of the African qualification tournament held at Palais des Sports in Yaoundé, Cameroon on Monday.
Cameroon hammered Gabon 3-0 (25-11, 25-14, 25-17) in a match dominated by the winners. Sem Dolengombai was Cameroon’s top scorer with 13 points, while Dan J’ Mateya led Gabon with eight.
Cameroon finished the five-nation round robin tournament with a win-loss ratio of 3-1 – to gain nine points and equal Algeria and Rwanda with the same win-loss ratio and total points – but then overwhelmed the set quotient 10-4 ahead of Algeria, who came second with 9-4 quotient and Rwanda who came third with 9-6.
This is the third qualification ticket for the west African country after 1990 and 2010, with their best result in the last edition when they finished 13th after getting through the first round.
Algeria clinched their last win against Nigeria in a thriller 3-1 (25-17, 25-14, 21-25, 25-15). As usual, Algeria’s opposite spiker Toufik Mahjoubi led his team and match scorers with 23 points, while Mathew E’ejeh scored 17 as Nigeria’s best scorer.
Cameroon joins Egypt as the African countries now qualified for the premier FIVB men’s volleyball event. One more ticket is still on the line for Pool Y countries – Tunisia, Seychelles, Congo, Senegal and Nigeria – who will begin their qualifiers March 2 to March 8.
The men’s and women’s FIVB Volleyball World Championships are staged every four years and are the most prestigious event in international volleyball. The FIVB’s Men’s World Championships Poland 2014 will take place from August 30 to September 21.
The Australian parents of an unborn child with two faces and two brains are defying doctors’ advice to terminate the pregnancy. Renee Young and Simon Howie, of Tregear in Sydney’s west, say they were shocked when an ultrasound revealed the twin girls they were expecting were in fact only one child with two perfectly symmetrical faces and two brains. Three-dimensional scans show the child has two legs, two arms and one body with all the vital organs, including a strong beating heart.
Doctors told Renee she should not keep the child ‘because it would be looked upon by the public as a freak’ and will be ridiculed. The condition, which is known as craniofacial hyperhidrosis or diprosopus, is so rare that only 35 cases have ever been recorded. None has survived. The last known case was born in an Indian village, the baby struggled to feed and died two months later.
But Renee and hubby Simon have refused to abort and instead have decided to go through with the birth and ‘surround’ the child ‘with people who love it’.
Surrounded by the seven children they already have, Mr Howie said they won’t end the pregnancy on ‘moral’ grounds.
‘We thought it was the same as bringing home a child with autism or Down syndrome,’ he said, ‘I don’t really believe in terminating a baby if it’s healthy and growing fine.
His wife, Renee, said ‘Everything happens for a reason’. She had never terminated a pregnancy before and they have a family ‘that gives us a lot of support’.
Doctors insist there was a good chance the couple’s child would not survive to a live birth but if she did, treatment could prove costly. But the burgeoning parents, who are currently not working, said they would ‘cross that bridge as it comes’.
Happy Birthday In honor of your birthday lets take a look of some of your amazing work.
