6:05 pm
is still waiting for justice catherine saw al-jazeera q one job he's done democratic republic of congo. is a professor of law at the university of amsterdam and the australian national university he joins us now via skype from amsterdam good to have you with us what do you make of this verdict has justice been done. well it's an extremely important verdict for the i c c of the 1st thing to note is that it's twice as long as the next longest sentence which was given to thomas lubanga it is by far the longest sentence to date that in itself is a major accomplishment for the prosecutor's office sent to the court. by the same token it's also quite a short sentence if we compare it to national jurisdictions if you and i were in most countries and we personally murdered an elderly priest we would probably get more than 30 years in jail just for that. mr into gandhi's responsibility goes well beyond personally killing just one individual they held him responsible for dozens of murders and rapes and sexual slavery and so forth and so in that regard he's
6:06 pm
probably quite happy today that is not serving a life sentence to what extent there is the i.c.c. treading a fine line here that all those of course who are arguing that the i.c.c. is far too africa focus that it's biased courts. well this is really the catch 22 that the court finds itself in on the one hand it's constantly criticized for not being effective there's been a number of major acquittals that are babo jump here. but on the other hand they're criticized for targeting africa by convicting him to gondor in sentencing him to to such a long period of time on the one hand it is showing that it can be effective but it is certainly not doing anything to help with the perception as being focused on africa i mean there have been no non africans successfully convicted by the court in the 1st 21 years of its existence this may seem naive question forgive me but why doesn't baffert to have its own courts perhaps working under the auspices of
6:07 pm
the i.c.c. but in geographically placed within africa what would that help do you think with the accusations of bias. well there is certainly been efforts by the african union to create a regional criminal court that in some ways could handle the kinds of cases that the i.c.c. is handling now they've been talking about it for a long time and it hasn't really gone anywhere i think it would be a wonderful thing if it did ever be created but until then really the only choice is the i.c.c. or individual states there are certainly african countries who could prosecute international crimes effectively if you think of the hissene harbor a trial in senegal that was a very successful africa based prosecution so that certainly is something that needs to be encouraged but whether it's a substitute for the i.c.c. at this point is a much more debatable question could still to professor many thanks indeed. cambodian acting opposition leader sam rainsy says that he's been prevented from
6:08 pm
boarding a flight from paris to bangkok he wants to return to cambodia to lead protests against prime minister hun sen those protests are due to take place on saturday earlier ramsey told al-jazeera that he was shocked that he wasn't allowed to board . they say they have received instructions from very high d not to let me vote 9 very disappointed and very angry i am trying to buy another ticket with a a plenty to go to another a country nearby can go jobs so that i can go back to cambodia # soon as possible there are many people in those countries neighboring countries as young countries who support because of democracy among parliamentarians and among human rights activists among the free press there are people who
6:09 pm
helpers it one way or another so we are 9 not alone we can see so did our duty in a nutshell among democrats all over the world because my people are all waiting 1 for me we have to be together to all the nice big demonstrations to bring down the current dictatorship in cambodia. sam rainsy was born in cambodia but studied and worked in france before returning in 1902 he became the finance minister in a government that was shared between the 1st prime minister not on brother lead and 2nd prime minister hun sen in 1997 raines escaped a grenade attack on a political rally that killed 16 people and shortly afterwards one sent seized power in a coup raincy then set up his own opposition party but left cambodia many times to avoid government charges against him his last departure was in 2015 after he was
6:10 pm
found guilty of criminal defamation become bodhi and government banned his opposition party ahead of the 2018 election meanwhile trains is deputy has been released by malaysian officials. move had been taken into custody on wednesday after she also tried to travel to cambodia to other cambodian activists were also released malaysia's human rights commission says that she would be allowed to stay in malaysia but no other details have been provided as yet phil robertson is deputy asia director of human rights watch and says the cambodian government must allow the leaders to return to freely resumed political activities . i think it's highly unlikely that taiwan is going to allow them into the country much less let them go from the airport to the border overland to. sort of organize migrant workers to march across the border we have seen actually on the
6:11 pm
cambodian border that there are posters everywhere with photos and the names of these cambodian exiles saying that they will be arrested if they are brought across we've heard information about consultations going on between the thais and the cambodians about the situation so our assessment right now is that it's probably highly unlikely that they're going to be able to get into thailand much less get to the border cambodia is trying to bully all its neighbors to keep c.n.r. p. exiles out or to arrest them and send them back we don't think that anybody's going to actually do cambodia dirty work to arrest people and actually deliver them to one fan but our view is that c.n. r.-p. visuals like all cambodians have the right to return to their country this is actually an international human rights that is guaranteed that the right to leave your country and also to return to it and under the international covenant on civil
6:12 pm
political rights that cambodia's ratified they should allow brand c. and his compatriots to fly directly into phnom penh and if they're arrested at that time well that's the next step in the situation here but they should not be barred from being able to return to that country. the e.u. and the united states of expressed concern over iran's detention of a u.n. nuclear watchdog inspector one of the international atomic energy agency staff was briefly held last week and her travel documents seized iran has since cancelled the inspectors accreditation it's believed that this is the 1st such incident since the nuclear deal was signed in 2015 or wednesday iran began the process of injecting uranium gas into centrifuges it's at its 4th all plant was observed by inspectors from the international atomic energy agency al-jazeera store such a body reports now from tehran. the international atomic energy agency has been
6:13 pm
holding a special meeting on their wrong on thursday in vienna to discuss the latest developments when it comes. down since about it's the clear program the meeting that's also been discussing the treatment of one of the spectre's in iran that is because this inspector who is one of $150.00 inspectors that passed through the country's nuclear facilities on a regular basis she was briefly detained last week before entering the natanz nuclear facility for allegedly having suspicious material with her there when ian's briefly detained her and then she was sent out of the country this treatment is now drawing condemnation and the e.u. has issued a statement saying they're deeply concerned about the way this inspector was treated this all comes at a time when tensions are high about iran's nuclear ambitions this was something president hassan rouhani even predicted himself when he announced their wrongs 4th step in reducing its commitments to the nuclear agreement of 2015 he said that as
6:14 pm
of wednesday the 4 joe nuclear facility will restart its centrifuges and they did exactly that over a 1000 centrifuges are now spinning at that underground facility producing about 4.5 percent enriched uranium the iranians have said this is a serious step and they are very much trying to put pressure on the remaining european signatories that are left in the nuclear agreement since the united states withdrew from the deal iran has said that they will not stay in this deal by themselves they have not seen any of the benefits since the united states imposed a series of sanctions on iran's oil and banking sector for now there's a lot of condemnation about iran and its nuclear program and the iranians are adamant that they will continue to reduce their commitments until they see some tangible results from this nuclear deal and until then these measures will continue . well u.s. secretary of state mike pompei or tweeted iran's plans to increase its nuclear activity at fordo really raise concerns that iran is positioning itself for
6:15 pm
a rapid nuclear breakout it's now time for all nations to rejected nuclear extortion and increase pressure but we're expecting a news conference from peo who's in berlin right now and sometime later this hour we'll bring you that live 1st though let's get some reaction from the u.s. our white house correspondent kimberly help that is live for us in washington what are we to make of the timing of the pomp a statement can really. well it seems to be strategic given the fact that these secretary of state is in europe right now it appears that that message is geared towards the united states european allies he is there in germany commemorating the fall of the berlin wall and his tweet is kind of an abbreviated version of a broader statement that the u.s. state department put out in the last couple of hours where essentially a seems to be sending a message of how the u.s. is interpreted in the latest actions by iran and how it hopes that the
6:16 pm
international community will as well not just the concern that all have raised but the united states believes iran is attempting to extort the international community into accepting violence and terror is what the statement says very strong language coming from the u.s. state department and in the midst of all of this there is a little bit of amazement in the fact that just 3 days ago the secretary of state was saying that the united states strategy was working that they were defending this that the sanctions were very tough very rigorous the ones in the oil in the banking sector that they had already seen tangible proof that they were working now you have to remember the goal of the united states when it said it was withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear agreement to limit iran's nuclear program was to get it to the table to negotiate a broader agreement that would address what the united states calls iran's destabilizing activity in the broader middle east that does not seem to be happening so it appears not only is the secretary of state in some way eating his
6:17 pm
words but he's now seems to be taking that next step appealing to the international community saying look at this isn't working we've had our differences perhaps you'll consider joining us. we'll bring you the press conference that might prepare a press conference a little later in this hour as when it gets underway for the moment white house correspondent kimberly how could in washington many thanks. from al jazeera still to come to justice keep up the pressure and let them ask politicians begin. closed door negotiations for a new government. will tell you how the recent global movement against climate change influenced $29.00 teens word of the year. and in sports south africa's world cup winning world cup winning rugby team kick off a 5 day victory lap of the home country.

a way for iraq to create a document of their experiences. blocking the internet is a catastrophe it's equal to oppressing shooting and killing your thirties have totally isolated us from the world and start killing us a spokesman with the iraqi military says social media sites are showing killing and hatred that are poisoning the minds of youth almost daily men entire career stop to tell us if they die during these protests at least they would have achieved something greater than the dead end existence they've been living in al-jazeera baghdad. a high level aide to u.s. vice president by pens could reveal just how much he knew about donald trump's efforts to push ukraine to investigate his presidential rival and says senior
6:21 pm
adviser jennifer williams is to testify behind closed doors williams was one of several seamy a ministration of national security officials privy to president trump's conversation with ukraine's president back in july she said to have been concerned by what she heard. zeros how did you castro joins us now live from washington d.c. so what could jennifer williams adds to the impeachment inquiry. later williams is now testifying on the hill and not only was she on this phone call between trump and the lewinsky in which trump said please do me a favor open investigations into his political rivals but williams was also in a follow up meeting between her boss the vice president of the u.s. mike pence who was dispatched to go meet with selenski as a follow up to this phone call that meeting happened in september and according to
6:22 pm
previous impeachment witnesses the lewinsky opened this conversation by asking where was the money where was the more than $400.00 of a close to $400000000.00 and u.s. security aid that was at that time being mysteriously withheld from ukraine and that it needed to fund its fight against russia well according to those witnesses the vice president pence didn't have an answer he said he would bring that question to trump but immediately following the meeting between the vice president is a lengthy that is when a lower level aides including the u.s. ambassador to the e.u. ordered saw on land that is when he then made the explicit request to one of the lead skis aides that there had to be a statement saying that ukraine was investigating trumps political opponents and only then with this money be released and that is at the heart of this entire impeachment inquiry with democrats saying that that request amounted to
6:23 pm
a bribe that it was sanctioned by president trump and that that is worthy of impeachment so far it's all been behind closed door testimony. even though some of the transcripts of what's been said has been released what is the significance then of these hearings becoming public from next week. well going public is the key here a.j. because if we look at this big picture where do we stand now is that still the current status is that of trump or impeached today and if he were to be considered for removal of office he would not be removed from office because senate republicans are still close squarely in the president's corner and democrats hope to change that by moving the public opinion or strongly toward in pietschmann and remove all polls show that that's about a $5050.00 split about whether they support or do not support that move among the american public and it's simply not enough yet to move those republican senators
6:24 pm
towards taking what they fear to be a very divisive step of of defecting from their president and so moving these hearings into american living rooms through their television sets which starts next wednesday could be a huge opportunity for democrats and they've indeed been working up toward that entire purpose it could be argued of these closed door hearings has been a dress rehearsal of sorts to vet these witnesses find the most compelling ones and what nuggets of information may best sell the case to the american public that what trump did was corrupt that it amounted to bribery and that is worthy of impeachment and removal from office adrian out of there as how do you know castro reporting live from washington how many thanks elizabeth and because an associate professor of american studies and political science at george washington university she joins us now by of from the the u.s. capitol and is what i just want to pick up on what heidi was saying that about
6:25 pm
public opinion how do people feel about the impeachment process ahead of this public hearing for phase has as the the release of the transcripts have had any of impact upon public opinion. you know i was on a couple weeks ago and it seemed that public opinion at the beginning of some of the impeachment inquiries was not moving people who had supported from before continue to support him people who did not like trump. you know were very supportive of the inquiry but we've actually seen a significant shift over the last couple weeks there now seems to be a smaller group of people who say they definitely do not support the impeachment only about 30 percent and there are now 25 percent of people who seem very receptive they are not yet sure whether they support the inquiry or they support the inquiry they're not sure if they support impeachment yet so that's a huge number about a quarter of the electorate so right now the publicity of what's going to be
6:26 pm
happening next week is in many ways tailored to these people they are spread out across the country they have senators representing them across the country and i think the public city of the event the slow release each day that we've seen of the testimony that was behind closed doors now being released into the public one each day in a very dramatic fashion all of these are meant to switch people's affiliations as to whether they think impeachment is the right move given what trump has been doing prior is the republican merits is this is a fuss about nothing it's lies it's a witch hunt is that going to continue to work with the public people being persuaded by that. right there are definitely are competing narratives the democrats have actually been very consistent and we believe that what trump has done is that his quid pro quo trying to investigate an american citizen through a foreign government that these constitute high crimes and misdemeanors and we need
6:27 pm
to investigate this and move toward impeachment the republicans have actually had a scatter shot of narratives you know their narrative just a couple weeks ago was that this didn't happen then when trump admitted that it happened you know that there was a quid pro quo in some sense the narrative was well it doesn't matter that this with this is not illegal this is what happens all the time now they're trying the narrative well this is a witch hunt this is just people who already hate donald trump and that seems to work a little bit but i think it works amongst the people who are already supportive of trump i'm not sure this is getting any new voters and we even see a new narrative today that's been tried by rudy giuliani that the trump administration is actually so disorganized and incoherent that they could not have done anything as nefarious as the democrats say we'll see which ones stick and what about the tactic of showing how does how does the inquiry deal with people who failed to show up and how does that go down with the public. this is actually
6:28 pm
a real difficulty because you know the white house is telling people not to show up we know that they also told the trump excuse me the penn state today not to show up but then she was subpoenaed and she showed so we're actually seeing someone of a split most people are being told not to show up to the inquiry the people who are showing up are the people who are career civil servants people who are nonpartisan who's they have held their jobs across different republican and democratic presidential administrations and their loyalty seems to be you know to the law and to the constitution and they are showing up the people who aren't showing up are the republicans who are specific political appointees of trump and whose loyalty seems more to be to trump than to you know to the legal process democrats are in a bind about how to respond to them because the problem if you don't show up to a subpoena that is considered to be in contempt of court you generally can be held
6:29 pm
you know the police can come and get you and require you to come to court i think the democrats actually tried to bring the police to you know force any of these high level trump appointees to come to the court that would you know look terribly i think it would be a publicity disaster disaster so right now they are in a bind and i think they are hoping that the testimony from the people who were in many of those same meetings who know a lot of the same information but who are the career appointees will be able to fill in some of the gaps that many of the political appointees are not showing up to fill and could still to prefer somebody thinks do for being with us. we're going to weather update next here on the news out then an ultimatum from bolivia as opposition is anger against the president spreads out to rural areas plus threats to rape or being referred to that and yet it's only adding that horrified to find out why women m.p.'s in the u.k. say they face intimidation and threats of violence. and in sport the motor racing

as terrorist intimately reflecting on the issues of our time people like to think that their nationalism is not as ugly as someone else's national studio be unscripted coming soon. the 1st time glimpse of the challenges faced by journalists in the age of donald trump we are fighting the fake tears fake phony the enemy of the people through the eyes of a veteran white house correspondent what do you base your legs on the caesar down the press is not after truck after. we're not the enemy of the people we are the people usa the current battleground whose truth is it anyway.
6:33 pm
again it's good to have you with us adrian from going to here in doha with the news from al-jazeera headlines the international criminal court has sentenced a former congress rebel leader to 30 years in prison posco into gonda was convicted of 18 war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in 2002 and 3. d. an acting opposition leader sam rainsy says he's been prevented from boarding a flight from paris to bangkok is trying to return to cambodia to lead protests his deputy who sukumar was detained in malaysia but a since been released. the e.u. and united states of expressed concern over iran's detention of a u.n. nuclear watchdog inspectors the u.s. called it just provocation iran has since cancelled the inspectors accreditation.
6:34 pm
italy is the 1st country in the world to make it compulsory to study sustainability and climate change starting in september next year weekly lessons on the subject will be mandatory for public schools the education minister says the students will also be allowed to miss class in order to participate in climate protests on fridays and speak to italian politicians want to go for sony skype from finland she's the co-chair of the european green party welcome good to have you with us what do you make of this initiative that what exactly are kids going to be taught in italy. well according to the proposal we've. not yet to adopt. the proposal the idea is to make a difference to. according to the ages of the children and their and their. need to the compulsory school or rise the more or less 4 years of age and the idea is to make. one primary school
6:35 pm
a sort of fairy tale story and then go on with some more scientific based only. course this is something that will need some training. teachers the minister said to teach that the training starts as early as january and that the lessons we know will be more or less 33 hours every year or so it is not a huge amount but it is something that is according to me a very very good idea because we know that kind of change is not only a scientific question is not only a political issue but is very very much ponselle ones nonetheless there are people who are pretty skeptical about climate change despite the science of a both sides of the climate change debate going to be taught initially. now that is actually one of the most torney issues you should to be are to be decided that he
6:36 pm
needs to be as in many other countries we don't have a lot of climate negations people that think that common sense doesn't exist or at least is not well by human activity and therefore cannot be stopped and this is going to be certainly something that. is going to be controversial but i believe that we have to base ourselves on science and that mean it's a very linked discussion also to the agenda 2013 the un goals and sustainable development which are accepted by everyone so i think that there are ways in which it is possible of course to present a discussion because not where there is not only one way to be the government changed but the fact the presenting what the issue is and what the consequences are really are of climate change i think with this is beyond in doubt italy is leading the way here the 1st country in the world to make it compulsory to study sustainability and climate change is anyone else in europe considering doing the
6:37 pm
same. well to be frank i heard some years ago my good friend and colleague and former colleague at karen look at talking about that she's a member of parliament in the u.k. and this idea of our teaching change related issues in school are certainly not new and by the way a lot of the reason why the reasons why in the streets are so many students demonstrating is also because a lot of teachers are taking these issues even if it does not mean that we could have that in their school already we know that in many in many schools bass is a topic that is espoused by still with that teaches. the point is to make it indeed compulsory and of course you know scientific framework and not be the logical framework that it is more based. on that say some kind of obligation and is more be a teacher deciding to talk about these issues one day in his or her own class good
6:38 pm
to talk to monica many thanks indeed monica for sonny there the co-chair of the european green party in new zealand has passed a climate change law aimed at reducing its net carbon emissions to 0 by 2050 the bill was passed with near unanimous support an independent climate change commission will be filmed to monitor progress in denny's appellation is still very unhealthy at very unhealthy levels according to what data from the u.s. embassy there has been a slight improvement since its peak on monday rushing. a light wind and rain have helped improve the air the river. is covered in thick thick foam at the moment and that people say signals that there are high pollution levels in the water of the river. british police have formally identified all $39.00 bodies

found in a truck last month the reuters news agency says that vietnamese officials have confirmed all the victims were viet the me is from east of notified the families of the victims the bodies were found in the trailer of a parked truck in essex late last month. police in france have begun to dismantle migrant camps as part of a new crackdown they started in northeastern paris up to 3000 people have been living there for years without any sanitation critics say the move is a political and an attempt to win over voters from the far right. unfortunately these large scale operations have taken place before every time we're told it won't happen again but we need proper processing procedures when people arrive in france in order for them to have their rights respected in camps like these about 20 percent of people are refugees who are here legally but have not been offered any kind of housing there are also homeless families who are people
6:40 pm
living in often squalid conditions and migrant cramps right across france several of those camps have been cleared including what was known as the jungle in cali as well as core since dunkirk and. in normandy but hundreds of people often return to the sites after they've been cleared. reports now from paris. with or to say about 1600 migrants refugees asylum seekers living here in northern paris under this network of roads and i can tell you that the conditions are extremely they were intense cardboard boxes there's no sanitation there is of course no food people are really relying on the charity of strangers or just having to take in the streets a desperate situation the mayor of paris had called repeatedly for this makeshift camp to be cleared and that is what happened on thursday morning as about 6 o'clock
6:41 pm
