i am. or an idiot indeed me and. this is the w.'s coming to life from a scientific breakthrough that's real to ethical questions researchers in china revealing this field into monkeys using the same technology that brought us dolly was sheep so far on the field believe it to clone humans really awesome us on and it tells us on the program joke evolved to present heads with operations targeting
3:01 pm
us back codes in northern syria that's despite a warning from washington to deescalate the situation or risk facing a clash with u.s. forces on the ground. over the next sixty minutes a much anticipated guest arrives at the world economic forum in davos kennedy daughter trying to reassure the world's movers and shakers that his america first policy is it can also be good for that. and they need a full much chechen fisons return told on just serving as a guard post so-called islamic state is the latest episode in all seriousness setting a field on extremism in dry shop. class the united nations warns against me and most plans to bring go monograms of thousands of green gum muslim refugees a top u.n. official says myanmar is still not safe for that. i am. a warm
3:02 pm
welcome to you i'm on the thought she. we begin with a scientific breakthrough in china that baby monkeys you see here just don't look like they are identical research has created them using the same cloning method that produced dolly the sheep almost twenty years ago but the monkeys are primates like humans and now the question is being asked next me chose sean and why they might just look like two cute baby mechanics but they also represent a breakthrough that has excited scientists around the world the monkeys are clones the very first successful clones of a primate using the method to produce dolly research is that the chinese academy of sciences presented them to the public this week the purpose of doing. experiments. is really for the human health care in a few minutes there are many other animal models who can use mice.
3:03 pm
difficulty. in using the model for human disease because mice are very far away from humans the process took over a year and one hundred twenty seven eggs almost eighty viable embryos and that bevy of host mothers to produce the two babies it's hoped the clones could be used to studying diseases like parkinson's and alzheimer's research is say clones like these could help them glean results that would be more pertinent to humans but this breakthrough also begs another question can we clone humans and should we the burial of cloning primate species. in principle any private human can be caught but all purpose. use is purely for human benefit for medical purposes we see no reason of call of humans.
3:04 pm
but despite the assurances it seems the debate around possible human cloning is once again on the agenda. now with me in the studio i have derek williams science editor and martin dawkins did of this correspondent for religious affairs and ethics welcome to both of you let me stop if you dedicate the hallowed inaudible of the scientists is the new breakthrough allows the possibility to kill human beings is that right theoretically yes you can and can expect that the processes the methods that are involved if they work on other primates there will be largely probably work for human beings as well and what's the technique the technique is actually fairly straightforward and at least an honest very simple level that what you do is you take a take an exile out of for example monkey and you remove the nucleus which contains the d.n.a. which is inside of the cell and you can then replace that d.n.a. with a nucleus from another cell which is taken in a clone generally from what's called a sematic cell a body cell for example
3:05 pm
a cell from your skin you then inject it and you fuse those two together the egg the egg cell and the nucleus from the sematic cell and you end up with what's known as a clone which is a genetically identical individual to the one who donated the skins right minded to any to you from an ethical and religious point of view what do you feel when you hear about this possibility of cloning well i think it's extremely exciting i mean they see this as a really incredible incredible incredible breakthrough nonetheless obviously there are questions that have to be yes one of them is obviously what is what would be in the case of human beings i used to have a professor that used to say that nothing in medical ethics. point out that nothing that has been done in the terry nari sciences that's not eventually migrated to human human medicine one of the questions that we will be asking i pursue me is what is the status of the clone i mean as of now we're talking about bones and we're talking about sheep horses big monkeys but if we're talking about human
3:06 pm
beings are we going to be facing questions such as are we producing spurs human beings this is a question the clearly has at the clean because asians i am not comfortable leaving that answer merely to science. it that that's actually one of the most interesting points with this whole debate is that we do have on the one hand we have the by a clone in a biological sense which in many different areas of for example medical research is really a very very helpful thing then we have the idea of the clone as a continuation of for example a human being which is because we are also spiritual beings if you will as a whole as a whole completely different dimension to this absolutely i mean there is there is no doubt that one of the ways in which this is being thought of is a duplications of a self so i am this person and then when i faced death perhaps what i can do is go myself this of course also brings and i request i mean one of the problems that we have with this is the idea for fungibility which is the idea that people can simply be exchange one for the other and of course all of us that have dealt with friends
3:07 pm
family people we love understand that that's not the case these are the questions that i think are grown up and did it can we listen to triple the scientists talk about the fact that this technique is not primarily full killing human beings but the medical science extend that to us well this is i mean being medical science it's also actually very charged with ethical questions but. if you're if you're looking into for example the just trying to discover a new drug you need to set up parameters that are going to be as simple as possible now one of the one of the biggest problems with large case studies when you're testing for example new compounds is that you have a certain amount of genetic variability within a species as well so you're not only talking about you're talking about an entire group of monkeys each of which has its own individual genome now if you can bypass that that's that's actually a pretty major hurdle if you can get past that and if you're working with one single group of genetically identical individuals you're much more likely to come to some kind of a result fairly quickly that tells you more about the compound that you're testing
3:08 pm
so this could really be a very big big step forward in terms of testing but then of course you have the whole ethical question of how ethical is it to create. genetic clones of monkeys simply for this purpose i mean that's just it an ethical concern is it also religious concern well i mean i think that these things go hand in hand political concerns i think concerns religious concerns belong to sort of the way in which you try to conceive the value of lives i mean in the spaces that we never had together i mean this things i think that this kind of event every and this is important to point out i mean there is a bit of the mistake of dr frankenstein of our own of around this but i think it's completely unjustified because this is something that has been said about almost every single major development in science when we open a brain and we found out a brain there was also the sense that this was not allowable at all because we were dealing with something that was touching almost on the holy i think that the questions that we need to ask her questions about how are we going to regulate it
3:09 pm
we i think intuitively understand that it might be ok to test on a cloned lever it might not be ok to test on a clone human beings or distinctions that would be of importance or these are these are actually this is one of the most interesting aspects of this kind of research too is that obviously if you're if you're for example if someone has lost their liver and you want to grow them a new one then you have to do that with something that is genetically identical or that would be the holy grail of that particular kind of research you grow somebody a new liver that fits in and they don't have to take any kind of drugs in order to just stop an immune response now this is very closely linked to discuss and of research that's been done here so so on the one hand there's a very positive side on the other hand there's a potential very big negative side as well and quite often in fact i think religious concerns have to catch up with science fifteen technologies which existed scientifically and they've accused the opposed of the ethical and and religious level and that have gained acceptance like i v f but that's a good example and i think that it's for me one of the most interesting aspects to
3:10 pm
of this particular debate is this we have known for the last twenty years that we're probably going to be able to do this one day and nobody has come to any kind of global. what should be done and it's now really far past the time when that global consensus needs to happen to look at the critical point that you respond in that these things have to be regulated is that right well i think that it's very substantially no doubt that the systems have to be made i mean much of it will come down to intuition we have a sense in which when we see a human being when we see a baby monkey we do not see a clone i mean everything that i heard today given the pictures of these two baby monkeys was by god they're so cute now we i think that we're not completely ready to submit what we find due to a simple interesting book at a very if so you know scientific objects nonetheless there isa necessity for regulatory frame one of the issues studies brought up in this particular experiment that comes out of shanghai is what is happening in the back waters or behind closed
3:11 pm
doors in spaces that are being funded and are not sort of within the framework of regulations of places like europe i mean these are questions that are important and that ultimately we might try to have a say but we might not be really able to do much about that it's really my main concern and obviously the how technology is used all misuse is so much of discussion still to be had but gentlemen we have to leave it in london got a religious and ethics affairs correspondent and derek williams one from a science test thank you both very much for shedding light on this very difficult issue. let me bring you up to date with some other stories making news around the a delegation of know what's going to fish from athletes has crossed the heavily guarded border into south korea for joint lympics training as gun course for all the reasons to seek unification of the divided korean peninsula the north and south korean women's ice hockey teams will join forces at next month's winter olympics in
3:12 pm
chun in the south. at least three people have been killed and more than one hundred others injured ten of them seriously as a result of train carrying commuters to the italian city of milan do read and many passengers were trapped and had to be freed by risk youth services the cause of the crash has not been established as yet. afghan officials have raised to forty the number of people killed in last saturday's attack on a luxury hotel in the capital kabul a health ministry official says twenty five of guns died in addition to fifteen foreigners taliban militants have claimed responsibility for the assault. turning now to syria where turkey is borrowing to press ahead with this military operation targeting u.s. backed kurdish militia in the country's north and that's despite a warning from the u.s. president donald trump to limit the advance or risk confronting american forces on
3:13 pm
the ground in a telephone call with the turkish president donald trump urged to quote exercise caution to avoid any actions that might risk conflict between turkish and american forces in the region but president richard jones office denies this was said turkish officials say the full quote was quote limited to an exchange of views and that trump did not share concerns about the escalating violence in a flynn. militia they have played a critical role in helping us backed forces against the islamic state the turkish government meanwhile course the viper e.g. terrorists. turn of yield to this evidence of the force that turkey has brought to bear in a freen turkey's government is determined to press on with operation all of branch which to them has been a success so far. the operation will continue until the threat has removed. a little more of them but the kurdish y p g wants the world to know
3:14 pm
that they would surrender the enclave without a fight. we will resist and will not allow the enemy to invade our land to the last drop of blood we have we will never retreat from here on. those appear to be no idle words missiles fired from y p g controlled territory crashed into this mosque in the turkish border tone of kilis causing fatalities and panic as worshippers tried to free the wounded from the rubble. the death toll rises on both sides but turkish president rich. says he will expand the offensive eastwards. u.s. troops stationed in northern syria might soon find themselves caught between kurds and turks each ally determined to banish the other from the region at all costs all in the middle of them either through georgia or. yeah joins me on business is all about davos and a lot integrated guess that donald trump has arrived in switzerland he's the first
3:15 pm
u.s. president in eighteen years to attend the world economic forum in the white house has indicated that tramples spend the next two days pushing his american first agenda before leaving washington tweeted that he intended to tell the world how great america is trump it's. closing day friday at the end of the week that saw his administration announce a new package of trade tariffs and turmoil on the currency markets. so the eagle has landed but the spotlight today is on another leader who has a difficult sales pitch to make or abuse was expected to britain's prime minister tourism a was addressing the forum today to explain how she wants to surgically remove britain from the e.u. without damaging our own and the e use economy too much it would have been a hard sell so is a may as finished her speech and then humphrey has listened in for us and joins us
3:16 pm
now from davos i think she should yes she's there. how was may received did she manage to convince everyone that breaks it actually is a good idea. i had i think it was too hard to sell and she didn't day one just listen to that speech there for him to resign may in which she hardly mentioned breaks it at all at least not by name i think the reason for that was the fact that she had her fingers so badly burnt at the congress hall here in davos last year that a speech in which she spoke about more trade reaching out to partners past the european union brags it means bragg's it and everybody listening to that speech felt that she was talking about colonial times and harking back to rupert tania it just didn't go down well a tool this time around the congress who was around three quarters full and she spoke about tech instead which was an interesting choice bearing in mind there are
3:17 pm
many qualified people here to talk about tech but she said that social media companies must work to make sure that extremist content is removed illegal content is removed and she said that britain was working as become the world leader in artificial intelligence and robotics now that was interesting comment as well which also raised a wry smile bearing in mind that many of the people working in this industry in great britain come from abroad and their future was in peril with the brakes it deal so the main message was taken from the british prime minister to resign may instead she left it to the finance minister for the payment this morning to talk about bricks at ten ten did that panel on global financial risks and he said that if the city of london is hurt by brakes it will only go on to hurt europe he said and the european economy which was quite a strange comment to make bearing in mind that many financial services have already
3:18 pm
moved some of their employees and offices to amsterdam frankfurt paris dublin to make sure that they have a foothold in the european union so a little bit of double speak they're going on but that job was regarding brakes it left a foot at home and instead. that's very strange choice of topic there for the british prime minister now donald trump has arrived but he'll do not speak until friday what's he up to today. he's just walked past through the congress hole behind me it was absolutely packed out he came through the corridor or he said switzerland great country and he was asked what his message was a davos and he said peace and prosperity we understand that he was then on his way to speak to the british prime minister to resign make concerning foreign policy so topics such as syria and north korea despite the fact that the white house had said previously this week that he had no time to meet with it to rescind may so
3:19 pm
a change of attitude we understand that this evening donald trump will then hello hold a red denah reception with company heads looking to join up investment potentially bring jobs back to the united states of course will be his cool before as you mention tomorrow that address that everybody is waiting for despite the fact that the devil salit maintains that they are open to globalization everybody is waiting to see what donald trump will say we expect that he will tell his america first policy that what he will extol the stock market rally off the stock market rally that we have seen in the united states despite the i.m.f. warning about the potential of a boom and then a bust cycle as well so whether with some of the topics that donald trump is likely speak about here tomorrow we shall wait and see thank you very much helena humphrey . doubles for us. we'll have more from davos ample talk to when i get a little later the show but first it's back to america for more world news thank
3:20 pm
you very much. it's been nearly four years since fighting broke out in eastern ukraine between russian back separatists and ukrainian troops more than ten thousand people have been killed in the conflict which is continued despite attempts of implementing peace agreements. of us sat down with the u.s. special representative for ukraine negotiations and that somehow he would define the nature of the conflict now here's what he told started as hybrid poor fare a low grade russian intervention where they then created these proxy entities and militias which are fully supported and equipped and trained by russia and that continues to this day. i think it is a means by which russia was hoping to bring about a more friendly government in kiev to have a or ukraine that is still in russia's orbit but in fact it's produced the opposite it's produced
3:21 pm
a ukraine that is resentful of this intervention that. is more unified than in the past more nationalist more western oriented and therefore i think it is ended up being just a tragedy because of the number of people who have been affected by the conflict the lives have been lost over ten thousand over a million displaced persons and it hasn't changed anything really and it's very sad . joins me from bonn welcomes on a what do you think that i'm it's a fault that is right when he says russia strategy in ukraine is a complete failure. good often and good to hit to be with the u.s. so it depends on how you define failure or success from my point of view it's a complete failure because it's undermined russia's reputation in the world it undermines our economy it let the sanctions affected russian people and they are standard of living. from the point of view of the russian government it's different
3:22 pm
because they define success. in terms of how much their much they cost and they were in country and that said we could defend the sion but they think that this is a success i do not agree with this i also spoke to mr folke about the men's a greenland is there really dead always there's still hope so from his perspective there is still hope but you have to bear in mind that he isn't a top negotiator and a diplomat and he must be careful in his assessment from the point of view of the ukrainian government it's a complete failure because it has not yet been implemented by the important poor answer mr volcker made was there to his said that by far it is the only mechanism by which russia affirms its support for the restoration of ukraine's
3:23 pm
territorial integrity and the conflict in the dung bus region has almost become a forgotten war what did i have to say about that and has it in europe not been paying enough attention to this conflict. yes he said that it's a big problem because it's a forgotten war though that death toll is rising and by the way it's a big moral burden on the russian political leadership and he said that he would like to bring to this conflict to their sports life and that was one of the reasons because he spoke to their press and to. them so well from the russian service thank you very much for your insights. after months of protests a bollywood movie but the is released in india today with a revised name but malva the love story between a human the princess and
3:24 pm
a muslim invader is dividing the country fred from a social media team has more on the story. for those people who don't know tell us more about what this film is about and why is it so controversial let me show you this movie is about an indian queen and the. mythological figure from a sentry's old coin and i'm retired you can probably confirm this she is a really highly revered figure in india literature and hindu groups are angry because they believe that this film portrays. hindu queen as having a romans with a muslim king and this too many hindus would be something and acceptable now the film producers have denied this they say that he is portrayed as all respect in the movie but still the rumor has been enough to spark outrage and the film was due to come out in the center but it's it had to be postponed until today and this goes
3:25 pm
beyond bollywood and beyond cinema doesn't it yes i'm right and i mean as you know tensions in india between the hindu hindu majority population and the muslim minority population has increased they have increased since particularly since prime minister narendra modi's hindu nationalist government has come into power in two thousand and fourteen but this tension is mainly been found by fringe nationalist groups and they've now jumped on this movie to push their political agenda and they've staged fierce protests that's since the movie a shooting began in two thousand and sixteen the film crew has received death threats the nationalist group has also stormed the film set multiple times and we've seen also more protests and now just ahead this week ahead of the. screening and demonstrators reportedly burned vehicles and vandalized cinemas and yesterday a group even targeted the school bus to go on near the capital delhi these threw
3:26 pm
stones at the bus they smashed the windows and this video posted to twitter was shot by a passenger inside the bus luckily nobody got hurt but still today several cinema say they don't want to show the movie because they're afraid of violence some states states had said before that they wouldn't show it the supreme court has ruled that the film has to be shown and they gave some conditions so the producers had to add a disclaimer saying that the movie does not claim historical accuracy and they had to change the title as you mentioned earlier from i'm about to to bottom about the strike the obvious this more fringe element as you call just very vocal very aggressive and vacant of you know in your face but does if you listen have support has absolutely an outpour of supporting and we've seen that from all corners of india from films online we're seeing people posting in solidarity using the hashtag it india with padmavati and that's even it's not just people who are fans of the
3:27 pm
movie also people who say that you know after what the the violence that has been and the way that the movie and the crew have been targeted they are now supporting it and we have a man here an intrapreneur from delhi saying making the point and saying i wasn't particularly keen on watching the movie but now i will surely go and watch it so that the next person who intends to express himself or herself in our country through any medium doesn't feel discouraged pressured or worried and many other people there like him are you know making the same point in saying that this really is right the controversy any time soon for. me did this thank you very much. the scientists watching mount my own in the philippines see a violent eruption could happen at any moment they say the volcano is swelling that mog under the surface and it may not be able to withstand the pressure of all that molten rock about seventy five thousand people have been evacuated from the area
3:28 pm
officials fear a full bore eruption could become a humanitarian emergency that lasts for months mont my own is the most active volcano in the philippines the current eruptions totted about two weeks ago. you're watching the devaney's more to come shortly stay with us. the world's most powerful intelligence agencies. working together on climate research. the end of the cold war made that possible. the united states and russia seized the opportunity the former foes became collaborators even then
3:29 pm
they could see the disaster solutions from. the morning. compliment to the. fake hair and real story. where i come from a lot of women who. have fake hair sometimes the hair style takes up to two a day. that's a lot of time that needs to be filled so people at the salon talk about what's happening in their lives. i became a journalist to be a storyteller and i always want to find those real authentic stories from everyday people who have something to share. with all of us i'm a fan of the salon i know good quality care when i see ads and the good stories when i hear it. my name is elizabeth and i work at steve. w.'s program guide. highlights. the home runs.
3:30 pm
dot com highlights. g.w. true diversity. where the world of science is at home in many languages. for thought of programming good. let's cut our innovations magazine for in. the us from every week and look into the future on d. w. john come science and research morning joe. you're watching live from berlin stories this hour scientists in china have revealed two identical babying monkeys greeting using the same killing techniques that gave us dolly the sheep more than twenty years ago there are certain breeds of the technical barrier that could open the door to human cloning. did he says it
3:31 pm
will continue its military offensive against the u.s. backed a goodish militia in northern syria that's despite a warning from washington to limit the campaign or possible events a clash with u.s. forces. but to speak we've been looking at dr tickle islam islam in russia and the threat posed by the return of four well i guess militants from syria and iraq chechnya was full of ground for the group to recruit fighters in the third and final episode of a series court fear a moscow bureau chief editor said to me it's a former chechen fighter who talks about his motivation his life as a jihadi and his escape. from because he was different at all did you ever use a weapon to shoot or to kill people you know but that will be but. no i didn't kill
3:32 pm
anyone not that i could see him and me when you. say you know you're no longer up i'd like to know why that you why did you go there and up by you miles to shoot for the most strongly in my case it was a feeling of injustice against the sunni to hold on to were killed by the shiites i mean the same on all the ones it was trying to pursue me. so you know but didn't you watch any news didn't you know that you were going to join terrorists. and i knew that what i was doing was illegal but i didn't give it a second thought. you know with them you. didn't think about the fact you were going to be killing people. and i knew i would get a weapon after all this is war but my view of everything changed the day i arrived in syria you can place a bet it was new to the city. how did you live what
3:33 pm
did you day look like yeah i was a guard i kept watching over in aleppo. citizen from chechnya how were you treated by the i.r.s. . we were treated well national chechens they know have. the kind of character they've been raised with for hundreds of years sukanya social so it was shands of. young chechens please explain to me. or courage under religion islam which we've held for centuries and we've also fought in many wars for the i.a.s. appreciates about chechens. actually i wanted to go back as soon as i arrived that's when i witnessed an execution of refugees who have fled the war that took place right after i got there in a settlement which was a gathering place for new arrivals to syria because you know there was full. of the
3:34 pm
posters of which you know a bus came to a stop and see if it's a man were taken out and interrogated. they were asked about the religion. they were executed in the next day. they were beheaded by people. it was a shock for me that people could use their religion as a justification to kill others. i waited for the right moment to escape unfortunately it only worked when i was wouldn't it and i used my medical treatment as a pretense. good to talk to and from there i went home because that's too. is usual unevenness and i had many chances to pause as a refugee and enter germany or france and escape justice for france or by the them but i thought if i had the courage to fight in a war. that i had to find the courage to return home. and face legal punishment.
3:35 pm
of most of them we went to. mr banneker saying yes if we could only you came back to teach me how were you received. when i returned the police weren't aware that i'd been in syria the whole tell you nobody knew that i could simply go back home and live my life but i told myself then which had a mitigating effect. in the end i was given an eight month prison sentence. why did so many tensions go to that why do they steal girl. it's not just a problem among chechens many from germany go to join the i.a.s. to. highly educated people as well lots of russians. not just those with russian citizenship with them but russians all the same couldn't you say
3:36 pm
to say to now many including the leadership in russia saying the u.s. has been destroyed and there to be shoot now focus on serious political future do you believe that the ins is finished. in my opinion no the i.r.s. is not defeated it will carry on along to be sure will. that we don't talk to every not spherical skier she's a professor at the moscow institute for international relations welcome to you professor is it possible to estimate how many of these full of fighters have returned to chechnya and how much of a trek they paused to society well first of all i believe there is no reliable data but anyway the problem of returning fathers from my point of view is not the main problem what is really very important are the causes for radicalization because the radicalization is going on and not
3:37 pm
only in church now but another republics as well and then the other countries as you were all know. so this is known as to why these people are getting radicalized in jest and other republicans as you mentioned some argue that in fact the russian intelligence service may have also played a role or no as far as a radical opposition is concerned that you know it's a problem which is not only about russia or general public but this is a real universal problem which should be dealt with internationally because some people believe that we're dealing with a new wave of protest movement which is a soul shaped as. in the flaw mic movement on the other hand there are people who believe that it is mostly about muslims who join
3:38 pm
isis and who are becoming far tell us what in fact that is not soul and this forest is concerned you probably know pretty well they have those churches who are fighting in the ranks of vices of a majority of them came from australia because they were kids of form are refugees who came from chechnya during the war and also where chechens from punkins welling . right it's a complex story i think we have to leave it at ina's feliz gaia thank you very much for sharing your incest with us and be done via getting down to. this in story which is the one acknowledged for meeting in davos that's right stuff was that used to be a power of powerful globalists but it has evolved into a battleground of world views and ideas especially with the arrival of u.s. president donald trump a notorious climate change skeptic from pulling out of the paris climate accord
3:39 pm
last year to more recently slapping thirty percent tariffs on imported solar cells transactions are frustrated many of the political and business elite many of them consider climate change a key global challenge and advocate the widespread adoption of renewables joining me now to talk a bit more about this is helena humphrey helena. to tell us more about how these topics are being dealt with over there was. these topics specifically climate change the threat of extreme weather are the hot topics here at the world economic forum ever since its label risks report the forum said that these were the number one risks to countries around the world so to talk a little bit more about what countries are doing it to mitigate these risks i'm joined now by vinnie to mit's how now he is the chairman of
3:40 pm
a vodka and of course india set to become the most populous country by twenty thirty five and also the largest power consumer thank you very much for joining us and he's the thing i'm india's county the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world in order to meet its economic goals there's a concern that it may become the biggest emitter as well is that a legitimate fear. i would agree with you that there is a huge concern at around a way nigeria quatermain but i will countries working really hard to strike that i would balance between. economic growth quatermain environment and we are lucky that we have got a very passionate prime minister who is a bust and focuses towards clean energy so when i started this business india had set up the data get off our twenty thousand may go out of sold out by twenty twenty and in twenty fourteen when he became the prime minister he said that data gathered
3:41 pm
and he said that data to set of ten to fifteen thousand megawatt be yet off solar and that around five to six thousand megawatt hour for india so. what we have found in him is a very committed prime minister who does not only believe in sustainable living but he also is taking a leadership role globally and know one of the biggest to be one and when i will start traveling with him to germany after the us government and i was that they were back off from the cost down to one commitment his first statement to media was that irrespective of any country's remaining no signature to the cost india would continue to come it right i see what you're saying that's the top down approach we know how large a country india is and many people are still not even connected to reliable power greats what policy means what's being done at a grassroots level to make sure that people are using clean tech that what
3:42 pm

some groups support the governments to go she ations which have led to germany offering aid projects instead of payouts. the me too movement is gathering new strength well beyond hollywood the entertainment industry here in germany is not seeing its fast major a geisha is of sexual abuse since the movement began with seven actresses coming forward against t.v. direct to d.v.d. and david leavitt's disc is he'll welcome david who exactly is due to be added what isaac uses saying so vettel has been a big deal director in german t.v. and theater since the one nine hundred seventy s. and for decades it's been known that he was somewhat of a womanizer and a macho now if the allegations that are coming out now archer he truly is a monster as many as eighteen women by one count have come forward to cite the newspaper that's published these allegations they have accused him of rape coersion
3:51 pm
physical abuse systematic psychological abuse of abusing and bullying actresses who refused to visit him in his hotel room so these are very much the same we're seeing very much the same abuse of power allegations very much even the same tactics that we saw with harvey weinstein and america and we've got this report. a number of women have come forward to accuse dieter vale of sexual harassment assaults and even right the revelations also suggest that many people knew and did nothing that women's testimony in the weekly cite is harrowing as that for many krista not who starred in a veiled directed t.v. series in the eighty's describes in detail how he attempted to rape her in a hotel room most of the women were young actresses at the beginning of their careers the statements are backed up by eyewitnesses really first i would never
3:52 pm
have imagined that something like this could happen in germany in particular that quite a few people knew something about what was going on and that no one was interested in the victims mentioned in town apology that comes. after the alleged attack s. they get left the production a doctor diagnosed a neck injury science has uncovered documents from the t.v. station that oversaw the production that indicate they were informed about the alleged assault game she was replaced on the production the new actress who to christensen also accuses vale of misconduct and reports that she was not warned about him many of those responsible for the production are no longer alive the t.v. station has accepted responsibility and announced its own inquiry vaghul has disputed past accusations and made no statement on the new cases

is lawyer says he's not able to respond due to health issues. and so and a spokesman says that he's now in hospital with a heart condition vettel has since these allegations came out resigned his post as the director of a big deal theatre festival that's that's coming up as well and didn't get talking about the first high profile sexual abuse scandal since the me two campaign began was a reaction to well i think that people are shocked but at the same time not really surprised people that i've talked to who worked in the german film industry say that sort of the same culture of coersion existed men in positions of power big deal actors use those positions to get what they wanted from women but there's still a huge shock here because the stories themselves are just so horrific and i'll give you one example one actress says that after she refused to visit vito the hotel room he terrorized her and on the set to the point that she had
3:54 pm
a nervous breakdown and even a miscarriage and that's just one of many stories now by the way german prosecutors are looking into whether they can bring this to trial it's very tricky here in germany because there are strict statutes of limitations when it comes to sexual crimes it does look like there is one allegation at least that could be brought to trial they just some of these allegations david go back some forty plenty of people around who must have known what was going on but there was this conspiracy of silence well this is one aspect of the story that is being examined and as we saw in the report there was this production company not only a production company but actually a german public broadcaster that knew of the allegations and continued to work with him basically because he was a cash cow this broadcaster has now promised that they will in the future make safes sets a safer place for actors to work meanwhile videos former partner has come to his
