a tool of change and he's also promising a try. to a civilian government and that to president within two yes but already the main opposition group organizing these protests has come to be rejected this what do you make of that what i can say or the times is a saying is still there is no real change in. the sense of people here like they just. but. the people who is. the part of the idea. that's what the people to. think about is are decided. as a constitution in this country was in the hold of them now is a change in the constitution and unsettles we have to wait for the general again reiterated today that the army has absolutely no political ambitions but we saw in our report that people in the capital are really angry they want substantial change and they want it now what are you hearing from your friends and family back home
3:06 pm
people really angry in the street i talked to my family that few minutes ago. they say we're not going with we don't believe these people are just it is just people who are fighting. this new. solution just in the same people who was before was part of that we're not going. to see this with this mean people will not give up to have changed so they don't want to shoot is wanted for genocide of the international criminal court but the generals have said that he will not be extradited what do you make of that. point people for example for me especially because i'm coming from therefore we're not accepting of those people from data for he's committing just for. the course justice has to be happening in sudan the cells and of people whose concern for the more than three hundred thousand people killed in that for more than two million was well just people waiting for this moment to have
3:07 pm
a justice it is to be made into the. that will become it because we don't in future because without with justice i think this would not go on for this is more important point have to be done for them to justice so i'm given all of this how optimistic are you about the future of sudan. still have this hope because i am believe that the people who is in the city for four months has done a great job until now as i said before we are all fighting this government since the beginning of one thousand nine. hundred something happening because if you see from yesterday to today is all the time there is one more forward to even from this new government even then the hope is that when the people in the street then that of a nation will come and the people will get one and hopefully it is not behind jack just revolution of them behind a sudanese human rights activist living in berlin to have you with us and you can. now key figures in britain's opposition leave

a body of court on the government to oppose the extradition of wiki leaks founder julian assange to the united states was arrested on thursday at the ecuadorian embassy in london after ecuador withdrew his asylum he's now in custody for jumping bail in two thousand and twelve but he's also wanted in the u.s. for revealing state secrets his supporters say he should not face trial as he exposed atrocities and was working in the public interest. joining me now from oslo is. a professor of law at the university of oslo and also a former special it up or two of the united nations working group on the tree detention welcome professor on did us a song just lawyer says he heard clients detention is a breach of international law do you agree because they u.k. says he violated bindle as. well the united nations looked in two thousand and fifteen and the united nations working group
3:09 pm
a lot of it showed attention which is the specialist body on arbitrated and she held that. she was held in the richard tension in violation of international law one that the u.k. authorities should release him and not obstruct his freedom of movement and there obviously seems to be no sign of that what do you make off the u.s. extradition request is valid. well it is a very technical attempt to distinguish between ordinary press activity and assisting in extracting information from public or in the sense of state some ation systems with different kinds of security devices now the problem with that is that there were no way you go about doing that likelihood is that it will be used against journalists and be used to restrict basic freedom of press. so this is extremely extremely difficult and also fit in relation
3:10 pm
to the freedom of the press and and just look at information he managed to bring to us all about u.s. military activities in iraq and the uses there of course they wouldn't have been there if that in any possibility for the u.s. authorities or collaborate read the whole court is in many countries in there been possible for them to restrict to bar us from learning about these news so professor that as you are saying that this case has huge implications the press freedom what do you think will happen now to jordan aside. well um i'm really worried because one thing is that you design the international or. you know yesterday in parliament just before the extension of bricks it she had to announce a problem in this the matter you started by saying i'm sure the whole house will
3:11 pm

3:12 pm
are oh those who are saying the pound of service internationalists here for the possibilities of a fair legal process it's not right started off very well we have to leave it then that and this professor from your at the university of us still and former special up a tale of the un working group on the tree detention thank you very much for your thoughts and. thank you time now to take a look at some other stories making news around the bug in pakistan a bomb in a market in the southwest city of kreta has killed at least sixteen people and wounded or most fifty others the attack appears to have targeted minorities shia muslims and ethnic. no group has claimed responsibility for the bombing but has on us and shias have often been the target of attacks by sunni militants. u.s. entertainment company disney is set to launch a video streaming service aims to talk to netflix disney plus will draw

3:14 pm
carried live images from inside the control room and there the tension was palpable when the news of the land as crash was announced there was solemn applause the prime minister benjamin netanyahu and project chiefs tried to stay positive about the outcome you win some you lose. if at first you don't succeed you try again. and holder so. this spacecraft was called para sheet which translates literally into in the beginning it hitched a ride into space aboard space x.'s falcon nine rocket in february this year the mission was an attempt to make history it would have been the first privately funded spacecraft to land safely on the moon but nevertheless the project did achieve some milestones. we've achieved an amazing success in bringing a spacecraft to the moon almost bringing it to the landing. it is by far
3:15 pm
the smallest the cheapest spacecraft ever to get to the moon. so despite the disappointment there is reason to celebrate the project paves the way for future low cost lunar exploration. insta media reports say a former soldier charged with killing investigative journalist. has confessed to the mud. and his fiance tina. both aged twenty seven when they were shot dead in february last year the journalist was due to publish a report on government corruption his modest spot massive protests that prompted the den prime minister robert fico to decide. if you will. joining me now is your correspondent bob bob are you were there covering the story for us and saw for yourself how axe murder sent shock waves through the country
3:16 pm
tell us first of for what more do you know about the man who's confessed to the killing. yeah the men who now finally confessed to the killing is a former soldier called middle of march ake and he has been in jail with some other accomplices since fall of last year and that is when the police sort of got into a model they seemingly didn't couldn't find out who actually had committed the murder who had point at the gun at the journalist and his fiancee and only when the national crime agency took over it seems the investigation sort of picked up speed and so now we have this confession he marshak is a former soldier he worked as a corporal in this love army to two thousand and thirteen and after that he seems to have gone rogue he started working together was of cason of his who was also under arrest and the pair were known in their own hometown as people who took care of business so they were actually working for the slovak underworld and mafia style
3:17 pm
organizations and sort of networks and they were already there were known to the police even because they were already involved in other murder in two thousand and sixteen of a local businessman and that investigation sort of didn't lead to anything it simply fizzled out nothing happened afterwards so what this shows is that they're well known connections in slovakia in the underworld and that the police really were all they needed to do was look closely and pick them up but they all we have sort of the crux of this case that the police in the beginning after this really horrifying murder everybody at the scene spoke of a mafia style execution of john could check in his him and see in this little house side of love in a small village that the police sort of messed up the investigation really at the crime scene that they didn't follow the leads that they were not careful with securing evidence and so on and so for us so it all really shows shines
3:18 pm
a light on on the country and the way police and judiciary work their. numbers so if it is confirmed that this man did commit the crime is it no one cruel or did it and why. yeah the second man the man who supposedly ordered it is is also under arrest now he was arrested in march and this is a local businessman he is a slovak oligarch a dealing and real estate multi-millionaire was a really good connections to the smear party the governing party in slovakia allegedly was good connections to the former prime minister a bit fit so whom you already mentioned who had to step down after this affair broke and so he has been arrested a year a good year after this happened however he had been the main suspect from the beginning because young could check had gotten too close to him he was about to unveil investigations into his dealings into his connections with the government
3:19 pm
was the police and the judiciary into this whole were arrests of corruption in the country and the he this man had already stretched and on social media. i had already threatened the journalists on social media it because all this became public last year and even though the police didn't do anything for a year or so it's taking a long time but it seems that just that just as might now finally coming becoming close in this case right bob a visa thank you very much for being that's up to date with the latest developments in this case it was five years ago this week that book extremists dorm to school in northeastern nigeria and abducted more than two hundred more than one hundred still missing but it was a hundred have been rescued those who returned a standing on government scholarships at a well known university in northeastern nigeria but not all parents are pleased
