4:04 pm
moves past the standoff in the streets. well the 1st charge relates to the walkie talkies that she was originally charged with importing illegally that it's related to using them to broadcast illegally the 2nd charge is that she has. published information that may cause fear alarm or disrupt public tranquillity i think that appears to relate to. the mation from her party published in the in the run up to the elections in the member that the military are contesting with no evidence but. i mean we've seen today these clashes are continuing the army and the police are pushing back the lot of tear gas fired on the streets and still huge crowds and i think the concern is that as this continues to mount the pressure builds up things have enormous potential to spiral

4:06 pm
a man's army they fought many battles in the past and china has huge economic clout . in myanmar but i think at this stage the chinese are is confused as everybody else and just sitting sitting back to see how things develop the problem is with the amount of violence we're now seeing on the streets things could spiral out of control and so no one can intervene. ok thank you for that tony chang there across developments from bangkok. and breaking news a court in france has just handed down a guilty verdict in the corruption trial of former president nicolas sarkozy he is convicted of offering a job in monaco to a judge in exchange for information on an investigation into his campaign finances that's go live straightaway to natasha butler who is in paris natasha i don't know if it was this a surprise was this verdict expected and what sort of sentence might we expect.
4:07 pm
well it's obviously a devastating blow for nicolas sarkozy a former french president the 1st former french president to be served a jail term because what we understand is the charge of the court has given the nicolas sarkozy a 3 year jail term 2 years to be suspended one year to be served in jail although we understand it could be carried out as a form of house arrest he is expected to appeal but of course this is not the news that this former french president wanted because all along in this trial which began in november nicolas sarkozy had proclaimed his innocence now he's been found guilty of passive corruption and influence peddling and this is a case which dates back to 2014 in which he was at that is it's a marriage that so cozy try to influence a magistrate by offering him a job in return for information into another investigation because police were carrying out into sol cozies campaign funding well in terms of sarkozy as i said he
4:08 pm
is expected to appeal of course in terms of his future political ambition this will be a blow to that he has been trying to stage a comeback of since he left the elites say in 2012 he was voted out he even tried to run for the presidency in 2017 but you'd have to think that any form of reappearance or the stage politically for sarkozy is really out of the question now all right thank you for that natasha and paris. $47.00 prominent activists are in court in hong kong after being charged under beijing's controversial national security law they're accused of subversion to taking part in an unofficial election primary last year it's the largest use of the law to date against pro-democracy activists brown has more from hong kong. there was a heavy demand for seats at west kalou magistrates court on monday morning the queue stretching around the block dressed in the uniform of the protest movement then mood was defiant like many of those now facing charges the police tactic was

remarks actually a grossly also mentioned that they are questions that haven't been answered by the iranians in reference to 4 different sides which are believed to contain nuclear material but the iranians haven't given any on says even before his visit this was not responded to at the same time he conveyed to the iranians when he met them on the 21st of february but he still believes as to what he mentioned in the press conference that the options are state of there for a diplomatic solution and there was also something mentionable by the european union today been a kind of mediator between the iranians and the americans which was said in the daily press conference by the spokesperson press the foreign affairs to stand which you mentioned that this by the iranians. now in saying yesterday that they will not be sitting at the moment with the americans on one table before these sanctions are lifted that there is still an on on you know an on going kind of diplomatic effort
4:25 pm
to actually still bring them together so he mentioned that the iranian stance towards this issue the idea of bravado even back of the 2015 nuclear agreement and having both sides the united states and iran be on the table that's still ongoing but still the gross either of the agency said that they are concerns on what the iranians could be doing now because the possibility of verification and monitoring is not as the same as it was before and still there is a possibility to bring everyone back on the table hopefully very soon thanks for that time to be there live from vienna. these really prime minister is blaming iran for an attack on a cargo ship the israeli owned vessel was damaged by an explosion in the gulf of oman on friday of last left holes and it's how the ship is now docked in dubai and who wouldn't be drawn on direct retaliation iran's foreign ministry denies that the country was involved well time now for the weather as everton. hello we have

4:35 pm
a digital green pass effectively a vaccine significant or passport that would allow the person with the certificate to travel from one place to another and not necessarily have to go into quarantine or some form of lockdown thereafter effectively the person would have to be able to prove one of 3 things either that they had had a vaccination both vaccinations and therefore han't could prove that they'd had the japs or that they could prove the result of a very recent p.c.r. test for covert or in the 3rd instance that they had recovered from coded in the recent past and therefore would have some degree of immunity now so the fund and i and says that all of this will be done with data protection in mind so that no individual's sensitive medical private personal data. could be mis used the point here is that what she's doing is in some ways trying to align the e.u.
4:36 pm
institutionally with what's mini member states of being wanting to see happen for some time now as was mentioned this idea that certain member states of already set greece cyprus they will respect the vaccination details of the other in those in that particular scenario but one of the thing to bear in mind here that there are many states where vaccination uptake has so far been very slow with regard to other countries outside the and so whilst many people might welcome the idea of a vaccine certificate to allow them to travel 1st of all they want to have the vaccination then they can worry about the vaccination certificate thereafter certainly that's. of you here in germany among many people but in summation what we have here now is line laying out this idea of a digital green pass that would be people could expect to be reaching fruition at
