10:00 pm
thank you clipping the edges and emotions. a ledge you know. busy every weekend on d w s. this is d.w. news live from berlin is spain reaching the point of no return as it plunges deeper into its biggest political crisis in decades the country's top court has banned the council on parliamentary session in a bid to block separatists from declaring independence we'll go live to bosler now
10:01 pm
for more. also on this program in the u.s. the powerful gun lobby calls for more regulation days after the worst mass shooting in the country's modern history the national rifle association saying devices used to make guns fire faster should face great to scrutiny. and this year's nobel prize in literature goes to british writer because to ishiguro judges praising the originality and emotional depth of his work which includes the well known novel the remains of the day. hello and welcome my name is christopher spring eight good to have you with us catalonia is bid for independence has hit something of a road block spain's highest court banning a parliamentary session in catalonia that had been scheduled for monday regional
10:02 pm
leaders had signaled they were going to use that session to declare independence from spain it's unclear however what effect that court ruling is going to have catalan lawmakers have already defied a previous ruling by holding last sunday's unauthorized independence referendum. it's the latest twist in a political crisis that's dividing not only spain but also catalonia a crisis that seen both sides digging in and refusing to budge this is the catalan parliament where the region's leaders were expected to declare independence from spain on monday but spain's constitutional course has now banned their parliamentary session from going ahead the council president says he is representing the will of his people there were a majority of catalan voters did not take part in sunday's independence referendum the spanish government says he's acting outside the law by trying to enforce an illegal referendum result governments have missed the push to months message is
10:03 pm
a journey to nowhere because there is no democracy outside the law there is no clear existence there are no rights outside the law for a long time is to push them on has been living outside the law outside reality and outside sanity. in barcelona people say they just want the politicians to make a deal. i'm very well aware of the problem we have facing and the solution must be found this is like a divorce there's no coming back you cannot divorce today and get married to morrow . the situation is very tense we've reached the stage where the spanish and catalan governments need to ease tensions they need to talk and international mediation would be perfect. for the deadlock continues the separatists have called for mediation but the spanish government says it won't enter dialogue until they drop their threat of declaring independence. even
10:04 pm
covering this story for us in barcelona another question now is of course what is going to happen on monday do we know if the catalan parliament is going to defy that court ruling and convene anyway. well we still don't really know that arch the card sorry the catalan harlem and speaker today so that she condemned the decision of the court and that she would not allow censorship to enter parliament so if that means that the session on monday is going to take place we don't know that but it is very likely that they might decide that way so if they do that the thing is that they will probably decide for independence and then madrid will have to act and
10:05 pm
different or it will have to it has to act then we will have probably sorry sorry to interrupt i just so obviously we're heading for confrontation on monday there are voices calling for a dialogue between the two sides between madrid and barcelona we've had the mayor of barcelona calling for dialogue we've had barcelona football club including the captain and dressin yes calling for dialogue is there any sign of any move towards dialogue. well there are loads of sites that are calling for dialogue completely right and lots of sites are even calling for the e.u. to mediate in that conflict and to get into it but right now it doesn't really look like it really because fall and you go and one side would have to give in one side at least one side would have to make a concession and right now no saw it is really it seems really willing to make
10:06 pm
a concession neither madrid nor catalonian parliament or the catalonia leader puts the moment ok on the many thanks to the owners of easy in barcelona. is also a new development in catalonia showing just how worried the financial word the world rather is about the crisis christophe you have more on that that's right christopher companies are starting to move out as catalonia as leaders say they'll declare independence over the coming days catalonia based lender bank or somebody else said on thursday it will move its headquarters out of the region this is spain's fourth biggest bank the country's leading retail of our retail bank bank which is based in barcelona is said to decide on friday if it wants to change its legal basis now both banks hear a catalogue declaration of independence could see them kicked out of the euro zone and out of the jurisdiction of the european central bank and it's not only spanish
10:07 pm
corporations that are thinking about relocating. protesters on the streets of catalonia are confident they're doing the right thing for their region many think the spanish economy is propped up by catalonia that they're the ones driving it on attracting foreign investors. there are one thousand three hundred active german companies in spain catalonia accounts for almost half of these investors if this small northeastern region becomes a separate country the investments of five hundred twenty german companies would break away in one fell swoop. and if it breaks from spain catalonia would presumably lose its status within the e.u. firms are already alarmed with one trade association already advising german firms to put their plans on ice. and should abandon their own expansion plans at least for the next few weeks to see what happens it's always advisable to seek out other
10:08 pm
locations inside the european union so it's clear for the corporations that access to the here a p and single market is of utmost importance. to see forty percent is. that something the spanish government in madrid also has in mind they announced plans on thursday evening to make it easier for firms to switch headquarters and move designed to tempt companies to put catalonia behind them in the search of stability elsewhere in spain. have more business for you a little later in the show now they have the new developments in the wake of the las vegas massacre christopher that's right chris of the coming from an interesting part of society gun lobbyists calling for more regulation after this week's mass shooting in last vegas leaving fifty eight people dead and many more injured it's a rare call for restrictions from the national rifle association in a country where gun control is a bitterly divisive issue the n.r.a.
10:09 pm

10:10 pm
a note and several surveillance cameras from the scene they now believe the shooter intended to escape after the massacre and did not initially plan to kill himself police also hope that this woman mary lou danley will be the key to unlocking the motive in a statement read by her lawyer dan lee denied any knowledge of his sinister plans he never said anything to me. or took any action that i was aware of. but i understood it anyway to be a warning that something horrible like this was going to happen. investigators say the shooter appears to have led a secret life that he spent decades acquiring weapons and ammunition they described him as disturbed and dangerous near the scene of the worst mass shooting in modern u.s. history those caught up in the aftermath are still left asking how could it have come to this. time now to catch up with some of the other stories making the news
