5:38 pm
a woman in south africa is raped every 36 seconds that's according to police statistics and in the last few weeks there's been a number of prominent cases that have caught the attention of the south african public here in cape town a university student was raped and killed when visiting a post office there's also a case where a the perpetrator has just been found guilty of raping a young girl in the restaurants toilets in johannesburg as well as a case in durban way a father killed 4 of his young children it's stories like these that have pushed south africans and women especially to say we've had enough and they want to response from the president's around what should be done and and this is what has now led to this extraordinary session in parliament and that's quite important because this is only the 3rd time where the president has called such a suspicion and so it's thought that he could possibly be making bold moves in response to the calls by south africans to wanting

5:40 pm
is fundamentally about whether or not the prime minister abused his and asking for that lengthy probation suspension of parliament at such a critical time and whether or not this supremes has the power to rule what is essentially upon them an issue right now we're hearing from james justice james he is the lawyer representing the prime minister and he is arguing that these courts have no jurisdiction on this matter and that the case should really be thrown out is obviously drawing on many. previous cases to emphasize that argument but the lawyers representing the legal activist are arguing that the rules suspending parliament and the bounds by convention and the use for a prime minister to set out new legislation for the coming year remember boris johnson said that he was probing parliament to tackle some domestic issues to look
5:41 pm
at funding the n.h.s. to try and get a grip on violent crime in the u.k. but noise they're all doing that that was not his true motive his true motive was to run down the clock on that debate so we'll be hearing from both sides to reiterating those arguments but the crux of it is does this court have any jurisdiction to rule lawyers say there is no legal precedent for it the law is on the other side say there is no legal precedent because no prime minister in modern times has allegedly abused abused his power in such a way. and that's. now an island survivors that anatoly is home for children are accusing government leaders of covering up a long running scandal involving the catholic church that's threatening legal action over the government's failure to examine the bodies of hundreds of children who died in the care of nuns some of the remains found in a burial pit 5 years ago were of newborn babies as lawrence lee now reports it is

5:44 pm
declined an interview but the government's own interim reports suggest that they don't trust the testimonies of surviving nuns and they think that local people might know more than they've been prepared to admit in the meantime though the detective work is being done not by the police but by the survivors of choom and their families. the campaigners think the government is so frightened of the damage to the church that a full excavation would do that it is resisting it so they're threatening court action i think the only way in which this will be resolved is through an order of the supreme courts of this country i can't see any other way because there is no will there's no wish there is no appetite church and state in this country is still wedded in a poisonous pact. through thought to be dozens and dozens of other places like this around ireland a full investigation into the scale of what happened across all the countries
