9:03 pm
concerning a post to the monarchy because of the damage the onward damages could inflict, not just on the molecule on the queen of course herself in a very important year for platinum jubilee, celebrating 70 years on the throne. as a result of which this move has taken place, somewhat surprisingly, all the rumors of this sort of thing was at me in the works. it comes a day off to a $150.00 more than a $150.00. full seniors serving military officers, wrote a joint letter to the queen, asking her to take these moves, explaining and expressing their anger at the prince's behavior, saying it was not befitting of a military officer and urging her to take action. it isn't entirely clear whether this is a moon that was encouraged or motivated by the queen or whether prince andrew at property these titles voluntarily. what we have is a statement from buckingham palace that says simply with the queen's approval and
9:04 pm
agreement, the duke york's military affiliations and royal patronage have been returned to the queen of. she will redistribute them among family members. in due course, the new york will continue not to undertake any public duties. those have been in advance for about 2 years now. and he's defending this case as a private citizen. and if he's understood as well in the last half hour or so. but among the titles that he forfeits is his use of his royal highness. so an enormous blow footprints, andrew, his reputation is a st already in tatters. and this will, this will be very bad news for him. do a very bad news. i am very bad news, of course for the british monarchy itself, her jonah. this is all coming after that. a torrid time for prince andrew. he was already forced to step back from public life as a royal following her,
9:05 pm
an interview that he gave to the british b, b. c. which went on very badly in deeds at the fact that he is now returning these titles or what has changed here because he was coming back from are being asked to, to step back from a public life. eh, what else change is the fact that he's as he completely distance from the british armed forces. now in, in the last 24 to 48 hours or so around that judgment. in new york, there's been a lot of talk amongst royal watchers people connected to the palace here about quote, unquote de roiling prince andrew. because he's become toxic, he's become tucked into the monarchy is potentially become popular to the queen. he is her favorite son, her 2nd son. this is a year of huge importance to her. and clearly he is now deeper than ever embroiled
9:06 pm
in sexual assault allegations that he would have hoped until very recently, could've been potentially put to one side. there was a possibility of having those charges thrown out in terms of a settlement that was drawn up between jeffrey epstein, the millionaire and associate of prince andrew. and one of his accusers am but that failed. and so the case goes on quite simply. it, he cannot face these charges as far as bucking powers is concerned as a royal with all the trimmings intact. and therefore the tacit if not outright support of the royal family, the monarchy of ours. and therefore there is a clear effort to distance themselves. and in their view, a very necessary we're, i don't have to, we know any more about what's going to happen with this case itself. dead. is he intending to appear in paris and anna, a new york court room?
9:07 pm
i mean, what efforts are being made and in that regard, see to defend against these allegations. he certainly hasn't made any public statements in that regard. we know now that the case is going to go ahead. it moves immediately into what's called the discovery phase, where evidence is collected. he will be required, well, he will be called upon to produce a deposition. this is a civil case, of course, on a criminal case. that means that he isn't necessarily compelled to appear in person. he's not even compelled to produce the deposition, although of course it would look awful for him if he didn't. so almost of necessity, he's got to write down his version of the fact that the other side have already said that they want to see evidence of this condition that he claims in that extraordinary interview. you mentioned in 2009 team. this condition he claims as
9:08 pm
part of his defense code and hydro says it's an inability to sweat that he claims a time all those years ago he suffered problem. and he used that as a defense saying he couldn't possibly have been sweating all over on the dance floor of all of the night club, the c plane, because he simply couldn't sweat at all. they've already asked, for instance, evidence that he suffered from that condition. and other information that he produced in the interview in 2019, when this exploded into the public arena, his alibi on the night being a pizza restaurant with these children. all of these things will be home now in a very public way. witness testimony will be produced and who knows what other details may emerge. but clearly none of it is going to be the sort of thing that ro, family would ever want any member of the family to be exposed to. and indeed for the life that is caused by that to be as much as possible, deflected from the queen of the molecule. that's what all of this is about. ok,
9:09 pm
jonah, how their brain as are the very latest. they're from london in the u. k. jonah, thank you. now it's a verdict that's being called a landmark leap towards justice and german court since convicted former siri and official unrest, line of crimes against humanity. it's the court. a census sent to life in a prison. dominic cane has more now from berlin. 10 years ago unwashed osland was a senior officer in the syrian government forces. now the former colonel is starting a life sentence for crimes against humanity convicted by a german court of multiple counts of murder, torture, and sexual violence. all carried out during his time in charge of the al hattie prison, near damascus. dahlia collector, i untied, assist the defendant was a part of assistant. at his instigation, thousands of civilians were greatly tortured. he is also responsible for murder of at least 27,
9:10 pm
painful the evidence we put forward proved fat unambiguously person ruslan defected to the syrian opposition in 2012 before eventually coming to germany. 2 years later where he was granted asylum, it was only in 2018 that police began checking out his story. when they realized the extent of his crimes, they decided to prosecute. in bringing this case, the german authorities have invoked the principle of universal jurisdiction. effectively saying that some crimes are so serious that it doesn't matter where they take place, nor does it matter that the victims and perpetrators on not german. what matters is that justice be done. outside the court on thursday, relatives of victims of those killed in syria gave their reaction to the verdict. yeah. they haven't shown that ever that. yeah, we were actually expecting this verdict and were of course, hoping that this would be the vert it of course this doesn't bring back our loved ones and doesn't get our loved ones out of prison. we have to keep talking about it
9:11 pm
and keep reminding the world that there are still a lot of people in syrian prisons and that they didn't under human rights. campaigners welcome to the sentence. i think it's quite okay for their survivor. their syrian how are affected with these crime? so i hope that a sir the sentence and is there a little b as strong face for her future war and water? aslan was not the 1st former member of the syrian government forces to be jailed in germany. and if the government here continues its prosecuting drive against those suspects of war crimes, there, he seems. unlikely to be the last dominant came al jazeera berlin, or patrick crocker is the lawyer representing the junk plaintiffs in the unrest them case is also a senior legal advisor. with european center for constitutional and human rights sequences life now from compliance in germany. and it's it good to have you with us
9:12 pm
or patrick ye ye represent, since the victims of torture, what does this verdict mean for them? what have they told you? well, it's an amazing the important day for them. we have been working for this for a long time together with activists other lawyers. but of course mainly the victims of this case who have really been on the front line and are really in my eyes. the heroes of this case, and today we had the confirmation that everything that we heard as evidence them has been credible the court grounded, it's decision on this evidence, including the testimony of the victims i represent. we have a confirmation that what's happening in syria are crimes against humanity and them . yeah. so it's definitely a very important step forward to they feel that justice has been done in this case
9:13 pm
. i think justice for these kind of crimes can never be done. the crimes are true horrific for that. we can always only have an approximation to justice them what this represents as a staff and it's not even a huge step. but what is important is that it is a step in the right direction. and i think the direction is what matters your. we need to continue with the steps so that we get ever closer to justice. which again would probably never achieve because the crimes have been to message at the. so if this is the 1st step, what is the the next step then to to help the victim scene of undergoing these horrific crimes? what happens next, because germany has this very specific ability to prosecute crimes which occurred outside of the territories as something that you would like to see happen in other countries worldwide. absolutely, there will be other trials in germany. there's already one that will start in
9:14 pm
a week from now against all. i am a former doctor in a military hospital in constance, syria. but as you rightly said, we really want also other countries to step in universal jurisdiction as a principal in international law. so every country in the world's cannon, in theory, prosecute these crimes and that's what we hold for. and what we also hope for is that there are more rest lawrence, like we have already, for example, against some you have some handle the syrian efforts, intelligence, or ali, my look against people that are still in syria and that, and this is important to mention are still committing crimes to day, these are the steps that must follow and we will definitely not stop here, but we will pursue the steps to worry that this case will then this vertex rather won't be accepted globally because we have seen on the international level, any efforts to try and rain in this conflict to rain in these abuses, ongoing a t tend to get the totes, by china and russia and so on. yes,
9:15 pm
absolutely. that's the reason why the international criminal court couldn't get active. and i'm not expecting, you know, the syrian war iranian government, you know, to follow up on an extradition, a request, for example, for these criminals. however, what we have now is we have a verdict that is based on 2 years of extensive evidence hearing evidence that was presented to a panel of 5 judges. that was questioned by the accused and, and his defense lawyers. and we have that as the foundation. now, for a verdict that will comprise several hundreds of pages stating in detail what has happened in syria and that, i mean, politically, cannot be done away with at let me just ask one final question and the, the case in this case, it or he has been found guilty,
9:16 pm
did he express any remorse? and would that have made a difference to that to your clients that the people you are representing? a sorry i had a problem technically you could you briefly repeat the question? i'm sorry, i was just asking in terms of what happens in court's and the verdict was read it, was there any remorse shown? and would that have changed anything for the clients that you are representing the victims of this torture? absolutely. in what half and absolutely not, there was not a sign of remorse for this. unfortunately, we have appealed to anwar on several occasions to reveal the truth and what he knows about the syrian tortures system and what we have gotten, what the victims have gotten from him instead was a very general of finger pointing towards everyone in the hierarchy often. and everybody in the hierarchy beneath him and, but really claiming that he had hardly any responsibility at all. and this is not
9:17 pm
only been contradicted to an amazing degree by the evidence that we have heard. it was also an insult to our science. if we have really wrist a lot in order to file these claims, et cetera. and i think an admission of guilt. and especially also revealing the truth about what he knows about this torture system would have made a difference. but we have gotten, as i said, quite the cape or patrick at crocker or was he thank you for joining us here on the news there. and thank you very much indeed for putting forwards the case from your clients and. and hopefully this will be one step towards closure for them. thank you very much. alice bringing some breaking ye side of sudan. no, we're security forces, have shots, and killed a protest her. now this comes to stars after senior military official was killed steering a protest in the capitol cart seemed thousands had taken to the streets against the

9:19 pm
the streets are brimming with those forces in their vehicles marching or using tear gas and using water cannons. that's a new air to day. so i mean, they stepped up their response to the protest as or after the killing of that big a deal. the police are issued a statement, they did not accuse anyone specifically of being behind the murder, but they said they are investigating the incident. and they said he was stopped or twice or 3 times and that caused him to die. this is a new development in this situation, or we've been listening a hearing on the, the news of the killing off or testers are over 60 of them have been killed. so since october 25th. but this development today is fear of to derail the whole process of demonstrations for democracy. and saddam, the says have always professed being peaceful. they said they will remain peaceful
9:20 pm
whatever happens. and over the last several weeks, when some of them will be killed, they insisted that they would not to change their ways. and they would not resort to violence because they know that if they, there's a lot of violence that would be very dangerous for their cause. they will be easily demonized. and that could also even, you know, drive itself into the brink of something similar to what happened in syria. olivia, nobody here in the country one stop. so it's a, it's a dangerous situation. escalation happening today, and everyone is asking about what's next and whether the military under police should continue to react like they did today. lots and lots of people, dozens and dozens, as i told you, across the across cup 2. and these demonstrations took place also in several parts of sedan. we still don't have the details of what happened in the other cities. ok,

yes, present. joe biden has some failed the federal stats to fight the o. mccomb variance include center more military person medical personnel to help hospitals deal with the search of coverage 19 cases. and buckingham palace says prince, and jing has given up all military titles and patronage is, is, comes after a judge in the us ruled on wednesday that lawsuits accusing prince andrew sexual peace with forward palaces. prince andrew will defend the case as a private citizen. or for more on this story, we are joined by the vol historian and author ed owens is speaking to us from paris as kids have the weather said, what do you make of this? is it unprecedented? have we seen anything like this before in royal history? it's a study remarkable, although in some ways or so inevitable and arguably overdue. a lot of pressure has been put on andrew,
9:36 pm
really since that news night into view. going back right to 2019 a lot of questions over whether he could remain a working member of the royal family. and those seem to be finally answered today. he has been stripped of those military titles and his patronage is and i think what we're witnessing here is an exercise in damage limitation by the monarchy. and unfortunately the andrew debacle and the fact that he's likely to to either see the civil case. maybe they'll be a settlement later this year. we don't know, but the fact that it's continuing finance means that the royal family really need to distance themselves from him. and what exactly does that mean? the fact that he's handing back paint, could you say a patronage is and saw, because after that interview, the mentions there were a claim to couldn't sweats and then a pizza restaurant. there was a nice that made that he would step back from public duties by giving up these
9:37 pm
titles and, and saw. and i mean, does this mean he's on a par with harry in makin or, or some way below? is he still a prince? what does it mean? well, there's a couple of things there. first of all, he did say that he was going to step back from public duties, but he has been reluctant to sort of even if you like back out of the limelight he's, he sought to maintain a public presence and i think withdraw him and taking away from him are these military titles, his patronage is essentially what they've done. they de roiled him. he will no longer be a working member. the brochure family, he will know be no longer be officially representing the family. he is essentially on a par with megan and harry, as you say, and what impacts he think this is going to have on the royal family because the royal family has been through many crises in the recent past. so thinking of course about the problems after princess diana died and so on there not,
9:38 pm
no strangers to scandal and they have tried to adapt and, and modernize with the times. but would you say this is, this is on another level, i mean, are they going to have to adapt in modern eyes even more just to deal with this or the scandal? well, when i started this interview by saying that, i think to some extent, this is ova. gee, we know that both prince charles and prince william had been keen to cut ties with prince andrew to distance the, the monarchy from him. up until this moment, the problem has really been, is that elizabeth, the 2nd herself, hasn't been willing to cut ties as directly. but here we have not finally seen the mana wanting to to sever ties, at least publicly, so that he will say score probably as a, as a private private citizen. so this is mrs. elizabeth. the 2nd thing that is,
9:39 pm
that is, is, is playing a key role here, and we know that the prince charles has been speaking for some years now about damn sizing the monitor. he is part of the modernization process, essentially at keeping at arm's length a potentially problematic members of the british royal family. those that, that might turn into liabilities like his younger brother. and it remains to be seen as in when he ascends the throne. whether that modernization, by dan sizing the monarchy will actually take place, came edwin's fascinating to get at your perspective in your thoughts on this sir. we will watch the story very closely and deeds and weeks and months to come back for now. thank you very much indeed. that's well has surgery and aunt owens joining us from paris. now the resurgence of the current of ours pandemic has led to renewed concerns about the global economy. and it comes as dozens of countries grapple with inflation well above their targets. inflation in the united states at

only 4 percent this year. and even less in 2023, let's speak now. it c hammered rashid's he is the leads author of that reports and search for the global economic monitoring branch, economic analysis, and policy division at the u. n. department of economic and social affairs. he joins this note from new york. how many kids have you withers? oh, isn't this kind of thing to be expected? because until the pandemic ends, the gorb or economy will inevitably suffer, won't it? ah, yes and no. i think you're right about that. the inflation shouldn't surprise us because we have had all the tell tale signs off on the pictures marketing. in one hand, we saw that pent up demand and doing 2020 or the demand, we're releasing 2021 households. we're actually received a lot of actual support from, from their governments and, but they can spend less money. so they're spent of demand, of course was there. what didn't keep up with the supply side. and now you
9:42 pm
mentioned the supply side challenges and, and then you add to that those labor shortages and advanced economists. and most of the people, many people didn't come back to the workforce for many different reasons. or they're unable to come back. and then you have the issues off the new variant arising. so what we're seeing is that it is more than physicians, transitory inflation. inflation is here to stay for the, for the near term. but it shouldn't surprise us because many of austin lived through the inflation in the eighty's. but this is in an era where we probably have to leave with slightly harder and fisher than we had in the last 2 tickets. tell me what that means and we'll end in real times for our viewers. so watching that you're trying to go out and buy groceries or paid their utilities bills. why is this bad news for then? not it is bad news. inflation is never good news for our people. speculate people
9:43 pm
who are who you lie on fixed income, their wages on, not efficient adjusted in most cases there's a lag. so if you look at the household, a pitch x right now of inflation is rising faster than the increases in ways. so basically at, in real terms what we call them is called a drill trauma. there war soft. so you have say 10 percent increase or 5 percent because your salary, you for little bit better all because you're able to bargain with your employer for higher saturday because you are doing a favor going back to work. but then you go back and buy your supermarket at least in the process of 10 percent more. so that means your 5 percent worse off. and i think best a challenge for, for, for many of the bus economies that you mention. because in all adult wages on not picking up fast enough and we call it which christ spiral. and i think what this will happen, we need to overcome this at supply side. a supply chain bottleneck spread as
9:44 pm
quickly as possible because as inefficient can be sticky. so once it starts rising is very difficult to payment because it's sort of it in a jamie, out of the bottle and we have to be very careful about how we respond to it and bring it big. bring it back into the bottle. okay. honey grow, sheets i we're out of time. unfortunately last we have to get in a very short space of time, but we do appreciate you sharing your expertise with us. here on the usa, i made rashid then joining us e r. thank you. thank you. last year was one of the most costly in terms of whether disasters in the united states. wildfires. storms, extreme weather, events cost the country some of the region of $145.00, a $1000000000.00. now just last month for string of unseasonal tornadoes, tor, across the midwest, that in itself was particularly expense serve her. let's get more from kristen
