11:01 am
are promising ahead of thursday's fighters. we begin our coverage in the hague where me and miles leader aung san suu kyi is set to lead her country's defense against allegations of genocide now the crimes are said to have been committed by the military and are at the center of a case at the international court of justice the allegations stem from the 27000 military crackdown which forced more than 700000 mostly muslim or hindu to flee to neighboring bangladesh well let's go live now to our correspondent ryan hey who's in the hague for us on sun. set to arrive within the next hour it's remarkable 28 years ago just this week she received the nobel peace prize and now she's set to defend the minute she who kept under house arrest against genocide what do we expect to hear from her. yes it's
11:02 am
a remarkable situation isn't it it's and we sit for another fascinating few hours inside the international court of justice on tuesday it was the turn of the gambia to open this case to lay down the harrowing allegations of genocide against myanmar and as you say on wednesday in just an hour or so we expect that it will be the turn of myanmar to begin its defense and that defense will be led by aung sun suu kyi the state councilor of myanmar the minister of foreign of is effectively the country's leader what would she say well we don't know exactly but i suspect that we will not hear much different from her than we've heard in the past few years on the issue all of the attacks against the ring get in rakhine state and that hasn't been much at all she hasn't said much about this issue i suspect she will skirt around the specific allegations that were laid down by the gambian legal team on tuesday i think she will talk about things like this is a very complex situation rakhine state that she has said before
11:03 am
a situation that the rest of the world doesn't really fully understand i think she will talk about the challenges that she and party have had since winning the election in 2015 forming a government very much still under the thumb of the military so i think she'll talk about things like that and then. we will hear from here from the legal team representing me and modern i think to an extent they will focus on technicalities like the fact that this court doesn't have jurisdiction to hear this case one of the main roles of the i.c.j. is to rule on state versus state disputes and i suspect that the legal team will focus on that the fact that there is no dispute between the gambia and me and the gambians are well prepared for that argument on tuesday they said that since early last year they tried repeatedly to raise the concerns directly with the government of myanmar about what was happening. in rakhine state but they got nowhere so it then became
11:04 am
a state versus state dispute and in the end they had no choice but to bring this case here to the hague when speaking to us there live from the hague you'll be following this very closely for us thank you wayne well the gambia has already asked for protections for the refugees who are stuck in cox's bazaar in bangladesh our correspondent stephanie decker is there and she says the refugees are trying to follow this case closely. nobel peace prize winner defending her country against charges of genocide well that evidence is here our it's the biggest record you count in the world i can tell you that people are aware of the trial they've been trying to get news of it internet how to been caught in this count for the last couple of months is a large protest took place here marking the 2 year anniversary while today for some reason 3 g. is back on so people are being able to access at the news and of course today we're expecting some coochie to speak you will have had people meeting last night with community leaders who would listening to the radio and would pulse on the information the news to them so there's people very happy that there is this trial
11:05 am
going on but they're also aware that there are going to be huge challenges ahead as people want to go home but at the moment there is no signs that that's going to happen anytime soon this county is taking a more let's say a permanent form and some of it and some of its areas there are many camps that make up the wider area and there's no guarantees for me and more that if they do say so at the moment nothing here is resolved. now u.s. president donald trump has mocked and pietschmann charges against him labeling them weak democratic party leaders announced 2 articles of impeachment on tuesday charging him with abuse of power and obstruction of congress and makes trump only the 4th president to face a formal process to remove him from office how does a castro reports from washington d.c. standing before a portrait of one of the nation's founding fathers george washington house democratic leaders made
11:06 am
a historic announcement today in service to our duty to the constitution and to our country. the house committee on the judiciary is introducing 2 articles of impeachment charging the president of the united states donald j. drum with committing high crimes and misdemeanors the 1st article is abuse of power for withholding security aid and a white house visit with ukraine's leader in exchange for political investigations that would benefit trump's reelection the 2nd obstruction of congress for refusing to cooperate with impeachment investigators the evidence is every bit as strong that president trump has obstructed congress fully without precedent and without basis in law if allowed to stand it would decimate congress's ability to conduct oversight of this president or any other in the future trump is only the 4th u.s. president to have impeachment proceed this far he denies all wrongdoing tweeting
11:07 am
during the democrats' announcement witch hunt democrats say the evidence against trump is damning it includes testimony from more than a dozen witnesses and a white house call summary showing trump asked ukraine to launch investigations into his political rivals republicans though say that's not enough to remove a president they're not impeaching the president because they they can the list and impeachable offense there peaching him because they're afraid he will get reelected that's not why you have the power of impeachment that's the abuse of power democrats are keeping the impeachment articles narrowly focused on trump's recent conduct with ukraine they decided not to charge the president for trying to stop the previous moeller investigation that examine whether his campaign had colluded with russia in the last presidential election in less than a year's time a deeply divided america will return to the polls that will be after trump's
11:08 am
impeachment trial in the senate where he'll likely be acquitted by his fellow republicans democrats say despite the slim chance of removal doing nothing or waiting what amounts to complicity with trump's misconduct the argument why don't you just wait amounts to this. why don't you just let him cheat in one more election why not let him cheat just one more time democrats say trump remains a threat to the upcoming elections and to his own country heidi joe castro al-jazeera washington well during a rally in the battleground state of pennsylvania donald trump called the 2 articles of impeachment against him flimsy and pathetic you saw their so-called articles of impeachment that people are saying they're not even a crime what are all of these horrible things remember bribery this is where are they they send these 2 things are not even to grow this is the light is

11:10 am
and how those debates are going on right now in the upper house talk us through the arguments and how likely it is to pass. well it's very likely to pass because as you believe the government along with its allies in the upper house will make sure that the bill is passed it's very likely that it is passed to date some of the debate is going on the country's home minister spoke out and he said it is india's responsibility to make sure that minorities who've been persecuted in neighboring countries are given protection in india are given shows that the opposition politicians or members of opposition parties are saying that behind this is the ruling party which is a hindu nationalist party they're all arising politics that essentially trying to divide people one of the parliamentarians from an opposition party has even equated this to nazi politics come in there perhaps but there is a certain concern among people that this may divide the induce and muslims in the

country over the last few days we've seen massive protests in assam in best bengal and also in delhi and yesterday also in the state of with the police but it is very important to mention that these protests are happening quite different reasons in assam mainly the protests are happening because assamese want to protect their assamese identity and they don't want any migrants where there hindus or a muslim bengalis invest bring all that is a different politics at play which is between the into nationalist party which is ruling in the indian ruling india so this is the dominant party and the local party which is d.m.c. there it is about protecting the rights of the muslims in delhi again people are saying that this is a discriminatory law we've also seen last night protests in our legal system university where students have said this legislation is discriminatory and should not to be passed until they are there for us and you tell you about continuing to follow this very closely thank you. well the weather is next but still ahead. after years of planning and several false starts saudi arabia stage and oil giant aramco

11:16 am
a bit i see that shares open 10 percent higher a huge success then for crown prince mohammed bin samara. well and this was always started to be a win for the saudi government one way or the they were going to been in the markets and this is exactly what they have done if they use was anywhere else in the world there will be an investigation to find out who was ramping up shares but when the government there's various all the markets can do and this is the reason why international investors did not want to invest in this particular company because they knew that the governance was a problem not only a run but within the state itself and they've been proved right nobody in their right mind as an investor would stand by and watch something like this happen now i mean everybody wants to make a profit on the on the 1st day there's no doubt about it but to actively go out your way to say to state funds and to say to. your population go in buy the stock right now this is this is your chance to basically get

11:27 am
what does that buy him given a prosecution that could drag on for years it's not clear whether there is a very significant dividend from the former legal point of view but i think there is common wisdom is that he's a bargaining position reserving the prosecution is much stronger when he's in office to get to a 3rd election netanyahu would have to fight off. leadership challenge from within likud and any potential legal moves against the legitimacy of his position and as for israel's wary voters recent surveys suggest there are resigned to going back to the polls and that a 3rd election in less than a year would yield a 3rd inconclusive result little there to lift the gloom ari force it out just 0 west jerusalem canada mexico and the united states has signed a new free trade agreement to replace the 25 year old after it was sealed hours after the us congress announced it supports my new apollo reports from the mexican capital where the agreement was signed. mexican president and this one will visit
