9:03 pm
defense team accuse the judge of being biased and of basically meaning towards the forces of freedom and change coalition that is the coalition that has been leading anti-government protests that eventually led to the ousting of former president i'm going to shoes but they were not people only ones angry on both sides probing here and to bashir that there is anger to be felt on the streets progress here are supporters came out demonstrating saying that the judge has been biased that the trial is a sham and that they also condemned the transitional government for dismantling the former ruling party 2 weeks ago meanwhile and came out after bashir protesters came out saying that this is not enough they're saying that he should be charged for other crimes and even in this corruption trial he should be charged with should be sentenced with a harsher verdict. so while saturday's trial was about corruption and illegal possession of foreign funds bashir also faces additional charges in 2009 the international criminal court charged him with 2 counts of war crimes and 5 counts
9:04 pm
of crimes against humanity and that was for his role in the war in darfur which started in 2003 at least 300000 people were killed and another $3000000.00 displaced a year later the same court in the hague brought 3 counts of genocide also relating to darfur then in may this year after he was to pull sudan's public prosecutor charged him with inciting and participating in the killing of protesters activists say at least 100 people were killed and in november he and several of his aides were charged for planning and carrying out the 1909 coupe that brought him to power he will abdel moneim ability for is a lawyer and activists he joins us here in dosser a very warm welcome to the program let's start with that verdict is it basically a political verdict that's designed to appease both sides mona this is not a political verdict it is a verdict because if it is a political verdict the it's
9:05 pm
a bit harder because this is not the time of war not of busy at all not a bishop now who is behind the duck. also this sentence is too lenient for almost a year for this is. very small crime this crimes are the crimes that are wanted to be a trial by the people of sudan people of sudan looking for more for bigger crimes for a very very big crimes this is very small very minor crime also his proven as if for his supporters to know that is a thief is a big thief but this is mr abbott is is there a sense them based on what you're saying that there is a feeling that justice has really even started to be done yet yeah i sing this is a very small step toward or in the past of justice the
9:06 pm
gist is that people of sudan want is coming on the way this is just the beginning and this is very small the smallest step small is that from what we saw today mr abbott if he still does nonetheless have his supporters doesn't he yeah because he he was 30 years in por 30 years important he should have support us because their support for those who are gaining wealth and that afraid about the world of the sudan its people which is theft by them they grow up all the sudan is. under saddam is pork so now we just they are crying for the world and the us it's that should be taken back from them as are so that is. saddam is well how how does
9:07 pm
mr abbott what we're seeing now affected the transition process in sudan could could it cause more division. i don't think mo view support thoughts of formal bushehr of the m.c.p. the motion of congress part of the no they have become something of the past very we'll move out of the port again because the pseudo newspeople served there would i was the fully they would not come again but they are thrown through murk some obvious thoughts on the with of the transitional government until morning ability for their lawyer and activist thank you very much sir for joining us. now anger over a controversial citizenship laws brought thousands of people onto the streets
9:08 pm
across india the by the bill allows tens of thousands of people from nearby countries to apply for citizenship but it doesn't include muslims well that's triggered anger in west bengal where protesters set fire to railways demonstrators there say the law will mean an influx of immigrants from bangladesh will take jobs and discriminate against muslims that sentiments been shared in mumbai protest is from the eastern us some regions say the law will heighten linguistic differences between the native assamese people and bengali set close meanwhile in the country's capital of delhi exams have been council at a university where students clashed with the police during a demonstration on friday. well also in india's capital a rally has been organized by the main opposition congress party against the sisson ship law so he'll raman is there. they gathered across the capital and from other states in india their message loud and clear the citizen
9:09 pm
amendment act. as it's known has to go the president of india gave his assent to the cia on thursday the controversial law allows citizenship to be granted to minorities from 3 neighboring countries but the opposition says it discriminates on religious grounds and goes against india's secular constitution this bill is undermining our language and culture and i didn't feel the people in the northeast . come here to save the constitution one of india's opposition leaders described the bill as dangerous. prime minister narendra modi and home minister don't care this citizenship amendment bill de brought in recently was shots of the soul of india what is happening in assam and the northeast states of the country. in the days leading to the being approved protests erupted across the country the most violent in the state of assad in the north east several people killed. and
9:10 pm
government buildings attacked. political leaders in the states of carola punjab and west bank said publicly they will implement the law leading to a potential conflict with new delhi it is the beginning of something very potent you know your 1st star then you put people. then you finally point out this unfortunate could be the beginning of what could result in. disenfranchisement of a very significant. numbers here may present the indian prime minister narendra modi with his biggest challenge since august the 5th when he stripped. the administered kashmir the only state in india to have a population of its autonomy that it has government what a historic court battle between hindus and muslims ownership of a disputed religious site i tell you it with a potential and now this the see a muslims are the only ones the law also provides inducement tumbles valium are
9:11 pm
actually from gaining citizenship critics say secular protections and grains in the indian constitution are now under threat and it seems that a long political social and cultural fight is on the cards for prime minister the interim o.t. and the indian government so robin al jazeera new delhi. all artists this year is an author and journalist who contributes to the new york times his overseas indian citizenship application was recently were folks by india he joins us by skype from new york a survey one welcome to the program and i wonder what does this do to india's stature as a secular democracy coming as it does after this series of decisions. i mean it absolutely does go to a death blow to the the idea of india as a secular country well time in the history of india that the religious have been applied the more is on the face of it pretty unconstitutional and what we're seeing
9:12 pm
is the kind of undoing of this rather grand project that marian gandhi had sort of because it turned asian that they had laid for a secular country that is being systematically undone by the modi in charge of. the law is causing anger in some as well and as many natives feel they would be numbered due to fresh influx of people from bangladesh and it's an issue of course has led to a lot of violence in the 1980 s. and many fear are repeats of that in the months to come. well you see the basis for india as opposed to a place like pakistan was always a linguistic identity it was almost held together the way europe was held together it was never a religion and so the people of us have a complaints about an influx of people but what the b j p has done is they've made a path for the hindus to gain citizenship and for them to stay on but to exclude
9:13 pm
the muslims and to render them stay and so the people of asylum or objecting in a more legitimate way because their identity is a linguistic i don't see it as an identity just based in region not religion i wonder just to see how. difficult is it right now to hold a conversation i notice them when i'm talking about this particular very difficult subject with friends of mine who come from different parts of india is very difficult for them to hold chordal conversations about access and in fact i was talking the other day to friends who said i think it's really inspiring division at all levels would you agree with that absolutely you know india is a very complex country it's in some ways it has an identity can be fragile for years we would talk about this the fairest tendencies the potential but india to break up it's a very complex sort of configuration and what could be gypsy has done is really
9:14 pm
kind of go right into the heart of like indian history and create a parable division a division that could that you know iraq the violence that we saw around $947.00 and the sort of hindu violence in the muslim violence that we see in them and their true commitment through the decades is suddenly being those wounds are being reignited and so the potential for catastrophe is huge will it potentially test india's you know cordie a relationship with bangladesh. i think that what it will do isn't blame the entire ground tonight because you know there was this is true of partition and india was not all work against the idea of the 2 nation theory there was also barbarism with founded on that idea in that was the bulwark against india said we don't we reject the idea of the 2 nation theory we were we we sort of a country where you live muslims in different religions all have equal standing and
9:15 pm
now suddenly even there is going to remake it in the image of a hindu nation where ringback we have potentially not just with bangladesh but with pakistan in all truth of a really catastrophic situation awaiting our journalist and author joining me there thank you very much sir for joining us thank you for having me there's plenty more ahead on the news hour including some reasons packed into rome city center can the sardine movement push back against italy's far right leader. dire conditions as we meet the syrians struggling after barely escaping the last rebel held companies. and in sport it's been another dramatic day in the gulf president's cup all the action coming up a little bit later with. there
9:16 pm
are growing fears that international efforts to fight climate change are slipping into reverse as the annual u.n. climate conference drags on without an agreement for more let's cross to london to lauren and to the team at our european broadcast center laura. yes thanks judy the top 25 talks in madrid was supposed to wrap up on friday but negotiators have failed to agree on major points there's been deadlock over emissions reduction targets and how much money poorer countries should receive to cope with the impact of climate change service so the latest draft statement lacks the kind of commitment needed to inject fresh mentum into the faltering paris agreement and that too much attention is being paid to the concerns of bigger countries. i think what's happening is this. that the presidency is listening more to large countries that don't want to do anything rather than to the most vulnerable and they're in dallas saying i don't know why they're afraid to stand up to the ball some of the
9:17 pm
world's who are destroying the amazon in the donald trumps of the world that are pulling out of paris but it seems right now that the interests that are behind that are the ones that have the chilean ears and they still have a chance to come. and put something on the table and be the heroes here but right now what they've done is they've just clearly given the platform to the police force or aren't at 10 o'clock joins us live from the talks in madrid nic are we any closer to a resolution. well the big problem here lauren is the your warning divide between nations that jennifer morgan from greenpeace was just alluding to that that is being had been dead not for the past 2 weeks we've had 2 it's are ations of the draft text both of being bolted down and deemed unacceptable they've gone back to the drawing board renegotiating and there was
9:18 pm
supposed to be a 3rd draft texan's face come out for a quote was still waiting for it now it's now approaching what 7 local time so we still get away let's bring in old men from getting a consensus insists old it's always like this in these conferences but it's particularly marked as times this has been a really gridlocked conference on a number of issues the market mechanism so-called article 6 issue raising ambition of the paris commitments which of course is essential as a science tells us if we're going to avoid truly catastrophic impacts of climate change finance money is always an issue in these negotiations and it's proving to be a deadlock because really as we get to a ground 0 here so we've really seen a number of issues that pop up and of prevent of the land presidency from getting consensus on the final texts and it will say that that whole issue of the cavalry how you put something into the tax that certain countries would object to tell us a little bit about that and take me consenting and wish well for example the
9:19 pm
science tells us that if we're going to meet the temperature goals that leaders agreed to 4 years ago in paris we need to triple or quadruple the impact of our emissions reduction commitments the ambition of our mission reduction commitments but you're not hearing any of that language in here you're hearing convoluted action language around recalling paragraph 23 and 24 the paris agreement and noting this and welcoming that it would be very nice if they could just put in plain language and say we need to transform our economies and dramatically scale up what we're doing if we're going to save the planet but of course they can't do that because this is all up. about trying to create a springboard into globes again next year which more crucial climate tilts because that's when that person really kicks in but it's not doing that as well it's not going to provide the kind of clarion call action that we had hoped to get out of here but in the real world it's going to be leadership by countries and blocks of countries it's actually important what the european union is doing now with its
9:20 pm
green deal with its 20150 emissions reduction commitment but the important missing piece is europe's willingness to increase its 2030 terrorist target it needs to commit to do that early in 2020 so it can engage with countries like china and india and try to bring them on board to do the same thing what do you think the best is that we're going to get out of this conference here in madrid and is it enough it's well the best will be an agreement that builds on elements of the paris agreement like loss and damage infrastructure and the adaptation commitment a little bit of finance here and there it's not going to be anywhere near adequate on raising finance support for developing country action of course it's going to totally miss the boat and sending a call for action on ambition increasing emission reduction commitments that's just not going to happen and even the best outcome that we get here is not going to deliver that message and it's going to be totally out of saying not only with what the science says but with youth and others marching around the world and demanding
9:21 pm
action are calling for it would you say madrid is going to be a failure it's not going to be a total failure but it's certainly a bit of failure to meet the need that we have this process of delivery but again you've got to know that this is not the fault of the united nations or the process the paris agreement it's the fault of the countries particularly the big countries my own country of course the united states under president trump but also japan brazil china india and others that are refusing the kind of collaboration that we need to get the job done all right allan thanks very much indeed for that it's going to be a long night ahead and that's looking about on one of these boards that there is a plane or at 10 o'clock that is not going to happen will tonight ok thanks very much nic thank you. tens of thousands of protesters have gathered in rome to denounce italian far rightly demetrio said really the rally has been organized by the saudi movement and is their biggest demonstration yet group was formed in opposition to growing support in the north of italy as
9:22 pm
a reason right wing coalition would have done to me does x. protest and to this report. to given the founders of this movement have been taken by surprise about how quickly their message really spread across italy and how much it resonated amongst so many talents additionally people from the left who have been voting for leftist parties and who maybe now do feel that they are not very much for presented at this particular time specially that they feel that the. parties are not very strong when it comes to countering the laws of the fire right and targeting specifically one person less still so the new is the leader of the. likud party of but he was also deputy minister of interior minister in this country just a few months ago. by the looks of it but what we witnessed the whole afternoon surge and the a lot of people are here a lot of people hoping that you know there is some sort of political renewal here
9:23 pm
in italy and specially that this landscape that has been dominated by the right over the past few years will now have an overture to the left out the issue is where does the movement go from here will they be turning to a political party what is the next step what is this strategy that is something that is not clear to anyone you speak to but the message in itself is something that many in braced for me in the team here in london nation britain for now back to julian. lauren thank you north korea's armed forces are warning the u.s. to refrain from any provocations if it wants to see a peaceful new year he came jomon has seen the 2nd weapons test within a week at a rocket test site by state media says the aim is to boost defenses against u.s. nuclear threats north korea has given donald trump a u.n. deadline to drop demands for the unilateral denuclearize ation of the korean peninsula violence in the air and other countries in the sun hail region has forced

coming up a little later in the program. hello again welcome back to international weather forecast or here across much of the levant it is going to be a messy scenario now not looking too bad as we begin but a lot of the clouds are going to be coming out of the north and moving quite rapidly coming down towards the south baghdad it is going to be a partly cloudy day 20 here on sunday but notice as we go towards monday we do have a developing system across much of southern iraq that is going to draw in the moisture bring a lot of rain showers as well across much of the area quite city expect to see some thunderstorms by the time we get towards monday with the temps if you of $21.00 degrees now that same system will be affecting us here in doha clouds are going to be the prominent feature here as we go towards sunday expect to see thunderstorms in the afternoon but by the time we do get towards monday and into tuesday things
9:31 pm
will be improving so here's a 3 day forecast watching those storms coming into place sunday night and into monday and tuesday temps was about $24.00 that's average for this time of year but we do expect to see more sun in the forecast and then very quickly across parts of southern africa now look too bad for cape town over towards durban though in johannesburg we have seen some clouds pushing through we do expect to see more clouds there in durban at about 24 degrees before cape town expect to see some windy conditions will attempt a few about 20 degrees. think stories generate thousands of headlines these protests are saying down with the system and down with all of the parts with different angles from different perspectives just because we came to prison there's a me right stopped at the gate separate the spin from the facts the western media jumps on stories we don't get into the misinformation from the journalism it's
9:32 pm
about telling the stories of those human beings on the ground with the listening post on al-jazeera. counter because the i.m.f. loan tax cuts for big businesses are the stairs see for the force just a perfect cocktail for street protests speak to the vice president of ecuador plus kenya's cash crunch the competition lining up to take netflix is. counting the cost on al-jazeera.
9:33 pm
you're watching out as they were a quick reminder our top stories this hour sudan's former president omar al bashir has been found guilty of corruption and sentenced to 2 years in a reform center child centered around suitcases found in his home filled with notes of different currencies worth more than a $130000000.00. students in the northeastern indian state about samar on hunger strike in protest against the new citizen ship blow it allows 6 minority religious groups from neighboring countries to apply for citizenship. but it excludes muslims anger over the law has led to protests in the. un climate talks brain dead lots of the cop $25.00 summit in madrid leaders from maine at loggerheads on emissions reduction targets and how much money poorer countries should receive to cope with the impact of climate change prime minister british prime minister says boris johnson's thang voters in constituencies in the north of england are backing his
9:34 pm
conservative party some for the 1st time in generations johnson now has a commanding majority of 80 seats completely changing the country's political landscape for more let's cross once again to lauren and our team of the european broadcast center hi there lauren. thanks julie yes thursday's elections or johnson's party got us way through the so-called red wall constituencies in working class parts of the country that traditionally voted labor but this new political reality sets in with a dilemma what to do with all the people who voted conservative for the 1st time or a challenge report. to the victor the spoils for 2 days after the landslide election boris johnson surveyed his new demands this is sedgefield tony blair's former seat labor since 1935 now conservative blue and i know that people they have been breaking the voting habits of generations to vote for us and i want the people of that all the to know that we the conservative
9:35 pm
party i will repay your trust. of all the stories in the 2019 election this is perhaps the biggest the working class communities in england's midlands north and in wales who deserted labor in droves it's a seismic realignment of british politics for sure. the u.k. is a small country but it can still feel a long way from big multicultural urban centers in london to the kinds of places that have just given boris johnson his majority labor still does well in liberal minded metropolitan areas but say it's paid the price for alienating more socially conservative bricks that voters outside of the big cities labor activists canvassing in such places before the election fed back grim reports the party's model position on bricks it was one complaint but perhaps a bigger one was a leader jeremy corbyn they didn't think he shared their values wasn't patry or
9:36 pm
sick enough was too city focused in those states that we've lost it's about listening to people what was it and i think it wasn't just bricks are things a long history or maybe 40 years of neglect and them saying to politicians you never listen to us i mean if allowed our communities to be run down in this way the conservatives now have to figure out what to do with their new voters because it's not a natural alliance the conservatives have traditionally been the party of the landed the rich giving purpose back to towns devastated by the industrial collapse presided over by conservative governments of the 1980 s. maybe beyond the conservatives have no constructed. policy offer at scale could meet their needs dreams all their new alex or constituent states so it's a very exciting. opportunity and i think they'll be quite a learning. jeremy corbyn will go soon and by january 31st britain will have
9:37 pm
breakfasted. then boris johnson will have to make good on his optimistic promises of the new voters could easily disappear for the next election will reach alan's obvious iraq under. boris johnson's election victory could have huge implications for the future of the united kingdom so we are going to go reports from belfast on how the brakes deal when some checks on goods moving between the rest of the u.k. and northern ireland are expected to take place to keep the irish land border with the e.u. frictionless and warning swan his report contains some flash photography. the u.k.'s election results have marked a historic change for irish nationalists never before have their representatives been elected to parliament in westminster in such numbers overtaking the unionists in an unprecedented outcome for an election borne of breck's it most believe northern ireland was always going to vote against prime minister boris johnson's
9:38 pm
mantra of get breck's it done this is largely remain country even for the brics it supported minority johnson's withdrawal deal that would place an economic border in the irish sea has angered many pro british unionists here fearful of irish nationalism many now believe northern ireland's identity is being sacrificed for an english cause they are concerned very very concerned because the democracy to fit in or not it is already seeing a shift towards more people who identify as nationalist compared to us i think they're also very very upset very very annoyed with them because it for them he did people say throw them under the bus at the last in order to get his deal he sacrificed the peace concerns on the altar of getting a deal so that he can to this election with a deal in the bag and sapir to deliver bricks or bricks that isn't a potential collision course with the delicate fabric of northern irish society and
9:39 pm
maintaining a borderless crossing between the north and the south crucial to keeping stability here according to the good friday agreement. for decades since the 1960 s. protestant unionists and the mostly catholic nationalists were at war with each other but the good friday agreement in 1999 bushmen to that underpinning that was the removal of border infrastructure allowing people and goods from the north and south to travel freely between the 2 for unionists brix it has ushered in fears that the province could be permanently bound with the irish republic further removing it from britain adding to this the northern irish assembly hasn't sat for almost 3 years following a political crisis but with brics it now a clear u.k. policy talks between its parties are jus to be held on monday to try to restore the power sharing government and with more power now in the hands of the nationalists
9:40 pm
they could also lead to even huge push for a united ireland so nearby ago al-jazeera belfast the french president says he's pushing ahead with pension reforms despite a 10 day nationwide strike by transport workers in paris residents and tourists expressed frustration with serious delays on the city's transport lines the strikes led by front to the unions turn a have no end date robin launched on the stray sion is set to take place on tuesday opponents of the pension reforms say employees will have to work longer yet receive smaller pensions the government says the current system is on affordable. and that's it to contain her london to the south but to jenny and lauren. some senior democrats in the u.s. have been paying close attention to the u.k. labor party's worst general election defeat since 1935 by president donald trump prime minister boris johnson is a populist to put delivering brakes at the center of his campaign as well as
9:41 pm
