prosecutors have filed 2 new criminal charges against depose the the un santucci was the 1st time she was seen in public since her detention of a month ago she appeared in court through a video link and even after the deaths of 18 people on sunday demonstrators remain defiant as scott hartnell reports. messages for general men on lang the morning after his security forces gunned down protesters on the streets of yangon sunday was the bloodiest day since the february 1st coup in myanmar and the weeks of protests that have followed. but that did not keep them inside on monday. the police and military forces quickly advancing in yangon firing tear gas at the gathering protesters sending them running. in the early hours of the coup last month civilian leader aung sang suu kyi was detained in naperville along with most of the elected leadership of her governing and the party. for the 1st time since
1:03 pm
then she appeared in a video link in this courthouse during a hearing for the charges against her according to her lawyer she appeared to be in good health 2 additional criminal charges against on song suchi were added on monday on top of the 2 existing ones the next hearing is in 2 weeks. as international pressure builds against the johnson and its increasingly violent crackdown against protesters some feel it might prompt the military to dig in deeper the worse case scenario is when you try to put a hot plate on a military person you know sometimes the outcome is not what you expect day may. get matt and instead. followed a way that international community stands at once they do opposite things he went on to say the best approach with the military is a regional one with nations myanmar is for a 1000000 with and views as allies that process is to start on tuesday when the regional block of southeast asian nations known as
1:04 pm
a c on is due to start talks on the and mark scott hardly al-jazeera. let's speak to another of our correspondents covering the story tony tony just talk us through these new charges that are facing on. well 1st one is related to the walkie-talkie is that she was the original charged with having illegally imported she's now being chance with another charge of the broadcasting laws presumably related to the use of those walkie talkies as perhaps the 2nd one which is attracting more him for attention which is the charge of publishing information which could cause fear or alarm and it could potentially disrupt public tranquillity that is a new one that is presumably related to her role in the n l d material that she had published ahead of the elections in november last year but i think the most important thing in this court hearing is the fact that uncensored
1:05 pm
she was seen at all the 1st time her lawyer had seen her on a video link not in person but he did say that she was looking healthy there had been fears for her fears for her health having been out of out of contact for so long the whole laws have asked the judge to grant access to her which the judge has said he will ask the police to do so they should get access to her in person at some stage in the next 2 weeks before their next hearing but they did say she appears to be at this stage in good health meanwhile tony even after a protest is some 18 at least of them were killed on sunday demonstrate his once again are coming back into the streets what more can you tell us. they are in the coming out all across the country not in as large numbers as we saw yesterday i don't think that's too surprising but in very significant numbers and they're being met with the same reaction from from the armed services from the
1:06 pm
military and the police although it doesn't appear that they are using live rounds to disperse protesters today nonetheless they have been fierce in trying to push them back from the early morning today they have been firing tear gas charging the protesters have been trying to organize themselves protect themselves with batons they've been using improvised body armor but it does appear at this stage the these are 2 opponents which are now going going to lock their horns on an almost daily basis and i think as we've seen these protests escalate and the reaction from from the police and from the army become harsher and harsher think this is the thing people have been concerned about that we're now going to get into a descending spiral we've gone from one to 2 this last weekend 18 deaths yesterday and i think this is increasingly a concern for the region we've seen a lot of global condemnation but last year and i think is going to be turning its attention to this tomorrow with
1:07 pm
a meeting of foreign ministers and i think they're going to be concerned that if something isn't done if the appropriate pressure isn't put on the military to somehow find a compromise here this is a situation which is going to spiral downwards and further out of control all right thank you for that update there tony chang across developments in me an hour from bangkok. the u.n. secretary general says the use of lethal force against peaceful protesters is unacceptable there are growing calls for international action against me in mass military unfavored the 12th the un human rights council condemned the coup calling for the release of political prisoners and an end to the state of emergency less than a week later the u.k. sanctioned 3 top military figures this was later expanded to include more of the top command and businesses connected to the military then the u.s. imposed sanctions on the top generals freezing their assets and blocking american companies from did business with them around the same time the e.u. issued a statement saying it was ready to impose sanctions. well benedict raja's is
1:08 pm
a senior analyst for east asia with christian solidarity worldwide he joins us on skype prevent and thank you for your time so why have these international attempts to put pressure on the military apparently made no difference. well i think firstly they've only been in place for a matter of just some day so they need to be given time to to make a difference but secondly in certain cases they are welcome measures but not enough for example the u.k. has imposed sanctions against some of the generals is as your report mentioned but it hasn't sanctioned bigotry enterprises yet the effect of the sanctions on the generals preventing them from traveling to the u.k. is largely symbolic because they don't tend to travel to the u.k. anyway so those sanctions were really made much difference it's the kind of
1:09 pm
sanctions that the u.s. has imposed sanctions against military enterprises that have a chance of making a difference do you think that the pressure the international pressure will step up now that the crackdown on protesters has become so violent as we've been saying 18 people died in protests on sunday do you think the pressure will now intensify. i certainly hope it will and i think it should and i think it should involve a combination of measures targeted. sanctions and other forms of pressure on the generals a global arms embargo is something that i advocate but i think also. intensifying diplomatic efforts by the united nations and by as again and i personally think that the m.r. should be suspended from as again given that this regime is not not a beagle government it's an illegal military. so at the end should take that action ok you mentioned the u.n. my question is what good is the u.n.
1:10 pm
in this situation i mean it's calling for international action for a cohesive international response i mean the military was empowered me in my office most of its history even when democratic reforms happened the military maintained a lot of control what did the un do there now at that point in time so what can the un do now well i think the u.n. can least show. political and diplomatic leadership on this i think that the u.n. secretary general should try to lead a high level delegation to to try to begin some form of dialogue with the military and to use its moral authority to suppress the military to step back of course the u.n. has limited its fadi toothless but certainly its efforts are needed and if you combine that kind of diplomatic effort with targeted sanctions that has
1:11 pm
a chance of of making some difference ok if if the u.n. is toothless your words what that is what measures could it take. well that again is valid to be toothless as well but it does have an important diplomatic role to play as. the body that represents the region and countries that are most neighbors and in some cases allies. i think that one of the things that i should do is consider suspending myanmar from its membership so it has a legitimate government that has been elected in. invalid elections ok we'll have to leave it there for time thank you for your analysis benedict launches there with christian solidarity while right. now $47.00 prominent activists are in court in hong kong after being charged under
1:12 pm
beijing's controversial national security law they're accused of subversion after taking part in an unofficial election prime rate last year it's the largest use of the war against hong kong's pro-democracy activists hundreds of people have gathered outside the courthouse in support is adrian brown who's outside that court in hong kong. as you can see plenty of media here plenty of lawyers and of course plenty of protesters the action has been happening outside of the court since early monday morning hundreds of people began gathering some were queuing others were just milling around but it had the sort of feel of the protests in 2019 because they were chanting some of the slogans we heard back then chanting things like fight for freedom stand with hong kong i met a woman who had a a union jack wrapped around the union jack of course being the flag of the former colonial power britain and she said that she was here not just to support those now

1:33 pm
because we still have no access to the northern part of tikrit but we saw so much images of our refugee camps were destroyed and we've heard stories of course from refugees that totals up to these actions but again since we don't have access to the northern part of tikrit we can't confirm these reports that we have seen tens of thousands of people fleeing refugees fleeing are people still leaving the area i mean surely people can't feel safe given all of these allegations where are people going. yes indeed people are still fleeing so what we have now the more 60000 refugees refugees from this is normal is not not growing fast anymore but we have so-called internals place person sole or if it is their country
1:34 pm
if you look at. their home if you are 2 or part of gray or 2 surrounding and we are all of the refugees to knowledge there are opposites troy who tried to reach the 2 southern. us these allegations against eritrean troops from amnesty international i mean they are very serious and there was also a report obtained by the new york times a couple of days ago alleging ethnic cleansing and take these are very serious allegations i know you said that access to the region has been difficult can you tell me what the u.n. is trying to do to investigate or to try and verify any of these reports. well 1st we have to say we are not the is the gating but we are if you think on a traffic incident there are injured people and the paramedics are not the police so we are trying to save the lives not to investigate although of course we prove
1:35 pm
these stories from the from the refugees telling us these reports and they are some trousers and that's why we asked definitely forms to gauge of these potential crimes because if they are true then we are talking about criminal ations of international or who then can investigate these claims what are the chances that ethiopia is going to do such a thing. for example if you know you can do little meaning with your country. if you are would be the 1st of us to investigate these allegations and if the author of course can also ask for help it say for example by the united nations high commissioner for human rights i would hope for as he said refugees to still play in the area how equipped is sudan with refugees that have already gone there and also you know what is the need for refugees who are now internally displaced.
1:36 pm
one sudar is very very old is there who are coming to the refugees and we the united nations high commissioner for refugees. we support done in at that point. in tikrit itself the situation is actually much worse although the southern part of tikrit our 2 cans are now running again and it's proving every day that the northern part is still thousands maybe tens of thousands of refugees definitely hundreds of thousands of internally displaced persons and many of them are living in a very dire conditions sometimes living in a field. thanks so much for your update there chris melzer from the ethiopian capital spokesman for the un refugee agency. in the next 2 hours a court in france is expected to deliver a verdict in the corruption trial of former president nicolas sarkozy is accused of
1:37 pm
offering a job in monaco to a judge in exchange for information on an investigation into his campaign finances that are about that is live for us now in paris that are so what is expected from nicolas sarkozy what's at stake what is he facing. as you say the former french president nicolas sarkozy will learn his fate is the verdict will be handed down by this court in paris after a corruption trial that began in november now nicolas sarkozy is accused of trying to bribe an influence of a magistrate in 2014 by offering that magistrate a top job in return for information about another investigation which has been carried out in nicolas sarkozy's election campaign funding at the time by police now nicolas sarkozy says these charges have always been trumped up by his political opponents he's denied them he says he's innocent he says that he has long been the
1:38 pm
target of any political smear campaign nevertheless prosecutors in this trial have requested a 4 year jail sentence for nicolas sarkozy 2 years to be served in jail 2 years suspended. i'm wondering does sarkozy still have political ambitions after all of this. one ever since nicolas sarkozy was voted out of the lease a in 2012 he certainly maintains that he is going to be making a political comeback to try to run for the presidency for example in 27 to be a have to say that if he was found guilty in this trial that would certainly put a huge down no on his political ambitions are going forward even though he would be very likely to appeal however if he's found not guilty of course he will feel vindicated he will feel that that will perhaps give him the platform and springboard that he needs to make
1:39 pm
a political comeback however the difficulty for sarkozy is his legal woes are far from over he has at least 2 other a corruption trials to be carried to be carried out in the next year. all right thank you. for us in paris. god as president has become the 1st person to receive a vaccine from kovacs a global initiative to provide free doses to developing nations a coup for our daughter and his wife so they want to set an example to show the public that the jobs are safe start a national vaccination campaign on tuesday. students in indian administers kashmir are returning to the classroom really a year after the pandemic forced schools to close students have been forced to study at home even before the pandemic because of a military crackdown. and india is expanding its vaccination campaign beyond health

far from being over. the news that the 45th president will remain on the national stage the stage he stood on was crafted in his honor in the shape of the number 45 was well received by this conservative crowd that includes the head of the proud boys who calls establishment republicans rhinos republicans in name only and i get it from 400 7 40 7. 7 5 right right. right right right yeah right there that we're going to vote the writers out already . thinking about that i want to see of running the party no i don't want to wager $24.00 but whether the party's 2024 presidential standard bearer will be named trump or which trump donald don jr or of he didn't say who would you like to see leave the party in 2024 he's already the leader isn't it obvious donald j. trump and what about the other drums evoke
1:46 pm
a john jr. i hope they run for 28 in his 1st public address since he left the white house rejected by voters trump ease the minds of many republicans with a call to unify the party across the bitter divide he helped create the republican party is united the only division is between a handful of washington d.c. establishment political hacks and everybody else all over the country i think we have tremendous and the call for unity behind trump is a challenge to those republicans who want to be the party behind someone else in a post from era but the former president isn't releasing his vice like grip on a clear majority of republican voters every party but now especially the republican party has to look inside after january 6th and say what have we become what's our great history and how do we go forward from here and i tell you reaching out to
1:47 pm
donald trump and more of the same is not going to do that as expected in his kitchen sink or of his speech trump attacked his rivals promise to defeat them and repeated baseless claims that he won the past election actually as you know they just lost the white house but he also left the door wide open for another run in 2024. hours i may even decide to beat them for a 3rd time ok i. it was a welcome message for everyone in attendance but for other conservative voters and politicians it's a worrisome reminder of the widening rift in a bitterly divided republican party john hendren al jazeera orlando florida. chloe giallo has made golden globes history becoming the 1st woman of asian descent to win the prize for best director beijing born john directed the film badland and is only the 2nd woman to win the award the 1st was barbara streisand to 19 eighty-four

timex for his peta thank you kim one of the world's top racehorse trainer schooled in elliott has apologized after a photo emerged of him sitting on a dead horse this cropped image as the 42 year old irishman may hear phone call or sitting on one of these animals which had died from a heart attack in training racing's governing body and ireland has opened an investigation alias who has trained 3 grand national with confirmed the image is genuine and has apologized for any offense caused elliott said in a statement i was standing over the horse waiting to help with the removal of the body in the course of which i received a call and without thinking i sat down to take it hearing a shout from one of my team i gestured to wait until i was finished such background information may seem trivial at this time however i feel it is important to provide people with some context surrounding the photo let's bring in racing broadcast a rebel from warrick sure in the u.k.
1:51 pm
rupert this is not a good look for the sport is it. there's no 2 ways about it i know when the pictures were 1st circulated to everybody in the sport weather here in the u.k. or in particular in the jump racing community which is very strong in both britain and in our was dearly hoping that these photos this photo was photo shopped around was a fake well clearly it has proved not to be the case and racing is reeling from it and gordon and it is hugely successful in his sphere and he's had a meteoric rise he's a brilliant trainer but clearly this is saying 4 years ago you know it's obviously there's a subplot to this story as to why with these photographs of this photograph published and clearly racing and i know from talking to lots of people i'm just appalled by the images that were shown on social media that any train or whatever the circumstances would do that and you know clearly that statement to many people
1:52 pm
doesn't really answer the question what he was doing sitting astride a dead horse under any circumstances even while answering a phone ribbit if you could elaborate a little bit for us and put it into context how significant a figure is gordon elliott. well to sort of use a football analogy here in ireland there are 2 big powerhouses a bit like in spain you've got barcelona and real madrid well willie mullins and gordon elliott are the 2 quine a training powerhouses in jump racing in are and they dominate the sport hugely say he is in terms of his profile hugely important bearing in mind that we've got the chop them festival in just 2 weeks tomorrow starting he would have probably 50 or horses coming over many with huge chances he is a major player in the game and this is just not any small time trainer this is one of the biggest operations in the country amongst his owners he has the are
1:53 pm
brian heir boss michael o'leary and a number of other highly influential racing owners so they will be taking a dim view and clearly we've already seen one of his sponsors has already pulled the plug on their involvement in the yard so it is a hugely significant moment that one of the biggest trainers in the sport who's had a brilliant career wins winning as you mentioned tiger rolled winning 2 grand nationals you know hoping to go for a 3rd 32 cheltenham festival winners you know the 1st grand man when he was 29 he trained his 1st grand national winner and his career and i've been to his yard you've seen it transformed into this huge operation i can honestly say i have this is really rocked the sport and they are it's racing or authorities clearly have a problem on their hand as to how they affected leigh deal with this you mentioned there that he's already lost one of the sponsors what of the sort of punishment are you expecting to see. well this will be for the arash racing or sororities and
1:54 pm
clearly they got sort of procedures in place for punishing anyone who brings the sport into disrepute but i think this is a new level and i'm sure they want to get this was old as quickly as possible you could range for him being losing his training license or he could be given a substantial fine and if he should lose his license well will that come into effect say by the end of the week when they hope to try and resolve this issue one way or another and then what happens to his horses which are up them in mind and so clearly this is going to cause the arash racing or sororities a huge headache but without question racing is reeling from it and last thing it needs is a sort of headlines like this when hopefully many of us even though it was going to be a very different chapman festival which is one of the great british sporting occasions was going to be conducted behind closed doors we were looking forward to the action
1:55 pm
on the track or clearly the build up is now going to be dominated by what happens to gordon elliott following the revelations following those photographs being published revelle thank you so much for joining us really appreciate it the problem of course assuming his lawyer has told on his ear that he expects the double olympic champion to be running at this year's tokyo games as things stand she'd have to change events because the new rules prevent her from defending her 800 meter title unless she takes drugs to reduce the naturally itis tossed around levels the 30 year old south african has failed twice to get the ban overturned and has now taken her legal case to the european court of human rights we spoke to her lawyer gregory not. the chances of that been had before told you are probably a much more that more like she would be the world championships and to 2022 but having said that we believe that justice will be seen at the olympics whether it will be ready in the $200.00 or $1300.00 or one of the best maybe but we believe
