6:02 pm
based on the house arrest earlier he accused jordan's leaders of corruption incompetence and harassment when the deputy prime minister also said at least 14 people have been arrested so far. the state intelligence of authority has been closely monitoring activity from his highness hamza sharif awesome busy but some of the and others whose movements were aimed at undermining us debility and security the surveillance incepted movements including communication with foreign sides on a so-called 0 hour to trigger measures aimed at undermining else debility while the honeyed has more now on those arrests. apparently those people had been followed they were under surveillance it's not clear for how long whether it's weeks or whether it's months and it's only when they started talking about the 0 hour that then the king took that decision choo choo have that wave of arrest yesterday however it's still not clear what they will be charged of i mean
6:03 pm
one of the reporters in that press conference did ask the foreign minister what are the charges and he said well it's still too early to talk about that investigation is still ongoing and everything will be revealed in a transparent way so you do get some answers in the sense that you can see there the foreign minister say make no mistake there was some attempt to have some sort of plot it's not clear what that plot was it was certainly prince hamza was having conversations or his the circle around him was having conversations with members of the opposition abroad interesting one of the reporters there asked him said is the 1st time we as jordanians hear about this opposition abroad who is that a brazilian abroad who is that opposition abroad and he didn't have an answer for that he said it was too early to talk about that so you do get that feeling that the government is putting out the message that they took that action because they
6:04 pm
had credible information credible intelligence that something was cooking they nipped it in the bud but we still have many questions well prince sums as mother queen no has defended her son saying truth and justice must prevail but the head of the senate says the accusation is a malicious plot to undermine the king. we reiterate our confidence and pride no rule monarch the king we're all behind ok standing firmly against any malicious treacherous ok. so it was ok. well let's not speak to why she must remain a jordanian economist and he joins us now from amman what she was watching that press conference with the deputy prime minister earlier it really seemed like he went out of his way to avoid the word coup why do you think that is and if this isn't a suggestion of a coup plot what exactly is. thanks for that for crossing me in this in this program i believe that you know people are exaggerating about what's what's what's
6:05 pm
going on i believe. that today and economy has many challenges in the basta few decades concerting you know the financial crisis concerning the gulf problems given that the oil prices are down on this effect that. that the crease and and the gulf aid the high employment rate and many many challenges also also this year and if you choose i believe east peace these challenges also i think that that economy growth and also i think that that employment rate the budget deficit such as that because jordan has to pick up at least these challenges and this increase its debt it's also the budget deficit i believe we have to wait until we end this occasion that i'm just a geisha of. the police is finalized to to to see the truth but i believe that the jordanians are facing many many challenges and also we also have
6:06 pm
some some corruption cases that i believe that the government is now is trying to handling and trying to do some some economic development trying to do some some. economy with with the international monetary fund we signed i don't $1300000000.00 with the international want it on for the next with the u.s. also jordan right now to. fix and try to. see that the problems in that and at the government. i want to ask you more a lot is the fraction cases because prince hans i himself made allegations about corruption in that video we saw how much intent on discontent do you think that actually is especially amongst tribal leaders who seem to support him is this potentially an internal palace trouble with an elite within the world family or is this potentially more broad based here. i believe the king is doing his best i think i believe maybe maybe we have certain corruption cases within within that
6:07 pm
don't. eat of jordan but i believe the king to strength to to challenge these cases and trying to do what's better for the jordanians everybody is you know when you have a bad going to mix you ation about growth i believe people are still trying to put this this responsibility on the lead on the king or on other people i don't think but i believe. just trying to do his best but you know people when you have that when you have. bad growth people trying to complain and they say that you have to have a better life but you know all these challenges in jordan i think think people i think affecting them their food their money their salaries aren't growing and so you have many many people saying bad things about the economy but i believe things are going i hope in the coming 23 years will be will be better of course and
6:08 pm
there's also been i will pandemics 600000 cases in jordan alone and now i note that we've seen very recently egypt saudi arabia cats and even the u.s. all of whom are rallying behind king abdullah now in a jordan's always been regarded as a stable country and the region is that can stand and that this could potentially change and ciccio. no i don't believe that i we have we have a good backup i was never in country especially the arabic i don't pick a neighboring country also we have a backup from the u.s. u.k. and all european union because you know that step of the deal jordan is a must you know because it. geopolitical issues even we have a geopolitical issues i don't want them but jordan would be stable and i believe king is doing his best to do that and you know what happened yesterday is for by a good stance that the king is trying to make jordan more stable than he's trying to overcome all of these challenges that we have facing and you do they
6:09 pm
get corruption the bad book i see in jordan i think the government also trying to do some competitive do it to attract investment from jordan outside jordan so that peace so that you can really get all of that is that jordan is facing right now and will be watching the outcomes of that investigation as they and madge watch the match from a that jordanian economist speaking to us from amman great to get your thoughts out there thanks for being with us. thank you. now moving on heavy rains have triggered flash floods and landslides in indonesia and east timor at least 49 people have been killed and thousands more displaced dozens of homes were buried by mobs and du preez you can see and others were swept away by those floodwaters just washington has more details now from the indonesian capital jakarta this is a developing situation and due to the extent of this disaster and the scale we've seen communication lines card power outages that means that it is difficult to get
6:10 pm
up to date information about what's happening but it's also difficult to access these villages that are in need we've heard from indonesian authorities who are responsible for these search and rescue operations and they say that in the case of some villages they may not be able to reach them until tomorrow or perhaps even after that we know that at least 44 people are dead but they're all some reports in local media that the number could be closer to 70 already just within the island of flores we've spoken to some of our contacts in this area and they say they've been experiencing this heavy rain since friday and there is a weather warning in place for extreme weather and that is because of a tropical cyclone system which is in the area between indonesia and timor leste day and that is likely to lead to further heavy rains strong winds a deadly combination which could perhaps make the situation worse we do know that there are evacuation centers being established we have confirmation of at least true so far there are likely to be more of course and this is
6:11 pm
a disaster not only impacting the island of flores but the neighboring country of timor leste a much smaller nation which has been hit hard in its capital so far we have confirmation that at least 8 people have died in the capital city of delhi that has come from timor leste ses state news agency. antigovernment protests have been held in thailand's capital for months now demonstrators there have been calling for the constitution to be reformed they say it doesn't support their rights or freedoms they also are demanding the release of pro-democracy protesters well there have also been more protests across me a lot despite weeks of increased violence by the military in mandalay one group gathered at dawn on motorbikes calling for a return to democracy more than 550 people have now been killed since the military seized power in february fast and in yangon demonstrators carried painted eggs as you can see with anti military slogans as a symbol of defiance and opposition to the coup one group marched through
6:12 pm
a district chanting and singing protest songs and many of those eggs also had a drawing of the 3 fingered salute which hasn't itself become a symbol of resistance. oh there's plenty more ahead for you this news hour including find out why turkey's plans to develop a canal near its bosphorus strait course and control the sea. and a gun battle between indian soldiers and maoist rebels kills dozens in the central station we'll have all the details and an unschooled we'll tell you about the american football call that's just been sold at auction for 2 point $25000000.00. right now paul barry and voting for a new parliament after months of anti-government protests and also amid a surge in coronavirus cases prime minister boyko bara saw the seeking a 4th term for his center right policy while the opposition has campaigned on
6:13 pm
restoring trust in state institutions as well as reducing poverty is the poorest member states and has the books 2nd highest cravin 1000 death raised about it smith joins us now from near a polling station in the capital sofia but it does look like they could potentially be some fairly messy coalition building ahead one is full most on verges minds today as they call their balance. it does not say there's an hour left to go before the polls close here and the indications are that the ruling party the main socialists of both lost votes the ruling party current exit poll suggesting about 24 to 28 percent of the vote well end up being the largest party but the most significant thing is the emergence of this until the taste there is such a people party it's estimated to get about 12 to 15 percent of the vote it emerged out of the protests last year unprecedented says scenario facing bulgaria now that
6:14 pm
if this party becomes a power broker it said already it will not enter into coalesce into coalition with any of the mainstream parties so the incumbent prime minister boyko borisov could find himself casting around to try and build some sort of coalition from other parties it could be extremely difficult and it appears that we're going to be entering could end up entering a long period of instability in bulgaria. attempts are made to try and form a government won't burn out a fire call belgariad now an e.u. country but it was once a satellite of the same union i imagine moscow is watching today's proceedings pretty closely. yeah we've had plenty of surveys done with most in the last 6 months or so that shows sort of. gary's happy to be in the e.u. for the benefits it brings in terms of travel and opportunity there are about 45
6:15 pm
percent of all gay and you still say they prefer a strong leader who doesn't have to worry about parliamentary elections so that's the perspective we're coming from there's been other research published recently that shows how active russia and china is on social media channels in bulgaria so you see the tog between influence from russia an influence from the european union russia is still heavily involved in business and still culturally involved because of that historical connections of the soviet union so a lot of interest not just in what happens here in bulgaria but the e.u. watching closely and russia watching closely to then and smith there watching that vote for us in sofia bulgaria thanks so much beyond. turning to the coronavirus pandemic and increased restrictions including a complete lockdown on weekends is now set to take effect in india's wealthiest
6:16 pm
state from monday that's after a surge in new coven $1000.00 infections driven by cases in maharashtra india's health ministry reported more than $93000.00 new infections just in the past 24 hours more than 60 percent of those are in maharashtra which is also home to the financial capital of mumbai where we can now speak to dr rajiv desk up to his chairperson at the center of social medicine and community health so how narrow university he joins us now from new delhi i want to start with what's behind this new wave of infections we've seen these numbers skyrocket what's driving it. hello and good evening there are principal e. 2 or 3 reasons that we need to understand one of course is the opening up of the economy including educational institutions in some states and increasing number of infections in young adults adolescents and students who act very fast as amplifiers 2nd of course is a very large scale of events and both of social events religious congregations
6:17 pm
political events and so on and finally what's not really given much emphasis now but could be a lot more important than we think at present is the emergence of the variants of concern or the new forms of the new movement forms of the virus including the u.k. strain. in the in the state of punjab for example which is also one of the very highly affected ones the u.k. strain is being identified for the last couple of weeks and the rise in india in february coincides well with the rapid global spread of the u.k. strain between december and january this is also to take into account the double mutant strain which has been present in india for some time now but seems to be increasingly more important these lab results are awaited and there should be a clearer molecular and been a mother to picture in the next couple of weeks well as we see these numbers go up the is measures that we're seeing in
6:18 pm
a rash and they're really tight and they cover more than 100000000 people will they be enough do you think and will people actually respect them. well if you see the example from the bible which is the capital of and of a neighboring state mother british which has also been affected but not so much by the has had sunday lockdowns now for the last 2 to 3 weeks and the evidence seems to be that these limited lockdowns are simply not enough to stem the tide and therefore. restrictions such as night curfews or or bending in tree laws and so on me actually have limited effect and are not really such an impressive effect the the key to to controlling it are the time tested measures of this track treated cetera which are indeed coming under some challenges now particularly with the entire health services. zooming all its activities and not just so live focused on
6:19 pm
called good so what one of the other things that india can do is vaccinations right and i see india has cut back recently on vaccine exports i know there's some debate about whether that's actually a ban or just a reduction but still it's substantially less after being a major exporter now initially the vaccine rollout across india was slower so despite the need for jobs they could still be sent abroad because they were being produced more quickly than they could actually be given has that changed there on the ground now. well directed mission certainly has picked up a lot but what we need to understand is that this is at this point largely confined to the urban centers. the initial target of 300000000 by the end of july is somewhat slow growing by the current pace also that it will be relatively thinly spread given india's large population but what is really disconcerting in this current phase is the spread of infection in the relatively smaller towns which
6:20 pm
have limited health service resources and that's something that's going to be tested in the coming weeks the vaccination itself is not going to dramatically alter the course of things clearly a lot of challenges ahead on shore roger desk up to there from joel mary university speaking to us from new delhi great insights here now is there any thanks for being with us. a group of retired turkish admirals is warning that a treaty governing the use of turkey's waterways may be threatened they say a project to build a $9000000000.00 canal on the edge of istanbul could undermine the montreaux accord but the government says the istanbul canal will ease shipping traffic on the busy bus for strays the convention guarantees the free passage of civilian vessels through the bosphorus and the dot in el straits which link the mediterranean sea to the black sea well wrestle so to has more now for us from istanbul. so the admirals
6:21 pm
$103.00 retired admirals has just issued a statement urging the government to preserve the montauk anwesha which gives turkey the control over the strategic sprays of both forests and dardanelle so they claim that this new kennel istanbul kennel which aims to connect the black sea to the mediterranean sea will bypass the straits and it will lead turkey's loss of the absolute serenity over these strategic straits which the government mentally actually rejects it and says it's just what a way and trying to is the shipping traffic in the boats forests which is one of the busiest maritime passage in the world so the government reactions are being quite big and the the party support person the head of the parliament director of communications of the presidency does this right after each other they issued a statement an announcement and condemning this and saying that this is another
6:22 pm
attempt of the retired generals of meddling in the politics and the army should never have any place in the politics they should stay away from such delicate issues just uncle in ankara the power of the chief public prosecutor's office has initiated today a judicial process over this statement regarding to 103 retired admirals and also just a little bit ago the party secretary general of the ruling party has. tomorrow the power parties governing body is going to have an extraordinary session to discuss the latest. well let's now speak to stop us karen petty days he's the head of the maritime transport research group at the university of plymouth he joins us now from their styles i want to stop with the maritime implications of this this would be the largest infrastructure project the tech has ever attended essentially by my understanding building and now the bosphorus just how much difference will
6:23 pm
this making tons of money and time when it comes to shipping. thank you for having me on a stage and say yes you're right it's going to bring a lot of implications to the overall sleeping but we have to concede that you know it's like us we've seen from the video earlier on it's going to. have more resilience to the system because thinking about supply chains and we realize that's a couple of days ago we were soon as kind of closer you know by carving an extra busses that's going to help global sipping. a lot of course we've got to consider that you know as you said earlier in the video that's because of the treaty that's existing over there defenses are passing through possible resurfacing for free so or it's not the black or white concept here it's a it's a matter of you know of eve this information going to be willing to pay something extra to move faster vessels through the new kind of or if they're going to wait
6:24 pm
a bit longer to parcel that last what is what's going to be. the president appears to be rather fond of big infrastructure projects i see the airport rebounding loss to now this but i know this has been a dream of his for what a decade now should we read anything into the timing of what's happening right now . that's true the project has been announced many years saying as far as i remember it was not back in 20 levon so it's been like 10 years back and yes the project itself i think it's in the shoes it's going to cost a lot of money to some people are saying about $12500000000.00 u.s. dollars and of course is going to help not also to release the traffic that is passing through us you know it's a very busy artery and you know something similar to what's happened in suez couple of weeks ago could cause an issue to global seeping in the global economy as well
6:25 pm
because don't forget that's 80 percent of the all use passing through vosper which is equal to something like 3 percent of the global or it so if something similar happens to host forest then it's going to have an impact to the overall economic of or of the or the whole globe but at the same time we have to think that you know it's like it's going to help a lot the process through there for releasing the environmental footprint that a lot of us and certainly been through through bosporus but also the same time there's a lot of people saying that in fact kind of you cannot is going to create a lot of environmental damage these are all in the area because it's going to pass around some. lakes that they're protected and all that kind of stuff so i said again it's not a black and white concept here it's a mother of about what one of these is want to do steroids i want to ask you a little more about those environmental concerns i think many groups are really worried about the marine life in particular the mom or a say is more felt by my understanding the black sea and they also have different
6:26 pm
levels of organic life not to mention water heights so this could potentially be very damaging i know there's also concerns about the displacement of people potentially even putting istanbul's water supply into jeopardy and taking all of that into account is this a good idea. first of all i'm going to vote a mental expert that i'm doing my time economy extol i'm not the guy who can probably give you the best answer here but also from my understanding from what they wrote in the news and in voters' articles yes you're absolutely correct there is a difference between the level of the seas between black sea and more of our sea and also a lot of species living there in the lakes over there so it seems going to be a big environmental damage over there but as a sense i'm not the expert i can't really comment on that because not my expertise . there are obviously as you said it's not black or white lots of things pros and cons to weigh up their status current pet it is and for many of us to plan a great take your thoughts here on out there thanks for being with us thank you.
6:27 pm
