center in northern germany. and that's likely to remain the case after prosecutors in the state of schleswig found spain's extradition request to be legally admissible. tech whether the statutory offenses listed in the european arrest warrant namely rebellion and misuse of public funds correspond to the offenses under german law high treason and misappropriation. we came to the conclusion that there is a correspondent. just over a week ago had traveled to finland from his self-imposed exile in belgium to attend a conference and meet makers. facing arrest by finish off dorothy's he tried to return to belgium but police detained him shortly after he crossed the danish german border ever since handfuls of his supporters have been demonstrating outside
the northern german detention center where he's now being held. but we got him there if you remember that i see extradition is a betrayal of the european union's values its approach to more as a politician with ideals that oppose those of the spanish government a bit of difference is the basis of our coexistence in europe and they are within europe. the case now aligns with. a regional court if its judges approved extradition his lawyers could take the matter to germany's constitutional court so it could be weeks possibly months before a final decision. i spoke to. demands a german lawyer a short while ago he set out why his team is contesting extradition to spain for rebellion. in german law we we have a similar. norm but. the hurdle is extremely high
that the perpetrator must exercise violence oss reddened with violence and there is not the slightest proof. cautiously as a prosecutor has said yes he himself is peaceful but. there was some boylan's and this was foreseeable that's enough not enough for german law and about the embezzlement. they claim at times it's a correction. there is no fact in the arrest warrant. of spain at all it's only saying that the referendum was speight period you're saying that there are no there are no facts in that arrest warrant doesn't germany have to respect the rights of the european arrest warrant that you member states have put in place to make sure that the rule of law is a bait across europe. absolutely but that's our third step the first
two steps is there is no double criminality it's not punishable in germany and therefore it's going to be expedited second step. game and it's a political. case and therefore he is sought for police to kill reasons and because of his political opinion this is no go strictly forbidden german law and this also under the european arrest warrant was shown but i want to ask you about the question of the violence that was involved in the protest in catalonia because the spanish case is partly based on the idea that mr push him out was warned that there would be violence before he called for this referendum he decided to go ahead with it anyway isn't there a point there that mr bustamante pushed this region or was part of pushing this region to break. so i did. i originally called.
your living in a virtual. it's not that important what really happens we have to have the truth but you have to see what is written there will be arrest warrant i don't think that's enough. because the german prosecutor see more or less. by admission. in germany that was a sham birth the lawyer for carlos pushed him out talking to us a little bit earlier in the day now israel has canceled a deal with the united nations to relocate african migrants to western nations it comes just hours after the israeli government unveiled that agreement some hardliners had attacked the deal because it allowed some migrants to stay in israel under the agreement with the un about sixteen thousand of them were to be said to western countries some of these migrants mostly from eritrea and sudan have been
living in israel for a decade there around thirty five thousand of them they say they have fled danger and persecution at home in israel they work illegally but the government wants them gone and offer them a stark choice leave the country voluntarily go to prison or be deported to an african country such as rwanda. if that's the choice i'd rather go to jail at least i'd be safe that but many israelis and many supporters abroad condemns the plan unethical must deportation so prime minister benjamin netanyahu turned to the united nations refugee agency for help. sixteen thousand two hundred fifty migrants will be sent to countries like canada or germany or italy or some of the world's most developed countries that's the commitment of the u.n. high commissioner. but that plan has also run into trouble hardliners say it allows too many migrants to stay in israel. that seems to be want has driven nessun yahoo
