controversial and decisive state. he was a freedom of democracy as a symbol of freedom and democracy he represented a time in power for sleep that operated underground for many many years to others he was an enemy of the state and will remain that way and probably will remain now wait. for his opponents including the people currently in power. stands entries here to pass difficult somewhat uncontroversial events. and you know his eyes or excuse me an era as this man was a criminal who died in prison some of his supporters or even other political figures from across the political spectrum in egypt do you feel that his death was unfortunately somewhat inevitable given the lack of poor treatment sees me given the treatment that he was suffering from his ongoing medical conditions while in
12:13 pm
prison and they say that his his death was essentially symbolic of the treatment of political prisoners in egypt today. backed by russian and intensified their friends even the country's last province dozens of people have been killed over the last few months an estimated 3000000 people live. and according to u.n. figures. 1000000 of them displaced refugees many live in overcrowded camps the. humanitarian catastrophe in the province. spoke to one refugee. who has been living in such a camp with his family for 2 years. his wife is giving birth and. men are not allowed to enter the pediatric ward it's one
12:14 pm
of the few places. after tense hours of waiting the moment has finally arrived so boss wife has given birth to a boy mahmoud. the proud father can hardly believe his luck he sends the 1st snapshot of the newborn to all his friends and relatives. we came here to northern syria say my wife could safely deliver her child i'll stay here until tomorrow and then we'll bring our baby to our hut. but a bleak existence with no prospects awaits the family there the camp in italy offers refuge to 800000 people they come from across syria fleeing assad's bombs now their stride and here in the country's last rebel held enclave they have a vain hope for some security. there practically no jobs there's not enough food water or medicine. and his loved ones have
12:15 pm
already lived in the camp for 2 years 4 people in a simple room with tarps there's no protection from the heat his daughters suffers from bronchitis but no one can help here they prefer to go back home to hama but that's simply impossible. we can't go back because there's permanent fighting bombing and shooting whenever we tried to return there were grenade attacks and barrel bombs. and the families from across it hope to get a little help in the allen carr clinic one of the few medical centers that has not been destroyed by bombing. 126 children are treated here every day but the clinic has long been unable to treat all of them it lacks doctors and medicine newborns in particular are quickly released and do not receive the protection and
12:16 pm
the care they urgently need. unfortunately the newborns often live in tents and barracks instead of houses and their parents often bring them back to the clinic in very poor condition after just a couple of days because their living situation is so bad. i think that's of our son mahmoud could also share his mother's still weak herself after giving birth the newborn is extremely vulnerable an uncertain future awaits him and syria's last rebel stronghold. with me in this really vulnerable and uncertain future awaits him in syria's last rebel stronghold. with me in this city i have political scientist and journalist just and have lived and worked in syria as well welcome just in that the united nations is warning of a humanitarian catastrophe they have you know over
12:17 pm
a 1000000 internally displaced people in the camp that we just saw what is your assessment of the situation actually what we just saw was the at a camp that has intrigues that advancing with the head of russian air bombardment so they feel really they are trapped and what we have seen during the last 2 weeks that the that these people start to organize themselves we have seen the 1st protests at the border. demanding the international community especially europe that either they stop being and the attacks on the lip or they open the border to turkey not just in turkey but to had on to europe so this is basically a message to europe either to protect us here all we will come to you because that's the only opportunity we have we cannot stay here because of live under a slide rule in which so many state actors involved in so many jew political interests at stake here is that a political solution in sight no there is no political solution in sight what we see evolving in the province is again
12:18 pm
a sign to the fact that we are heading towards a military solution the assad regime will gain control over the rest of syria step by step and bashar assad has won the war militarily with the help of iran and russia his 2 foreign allies and with the help of local militias and you know war. war leaders. inside the country and actually he has lost power to these people he has to give them a share of his own power will bitch makes it even more unsecure because you have regions even among under us out or government control that is not really safe to the people a lot of people risk to be detained at a checkpoint a loss of a lot of people to be persecuted they might lose their right of their property which means that for europe the main idea of europe is to send back refugees and the assad regime is saying yes once you just help me reconstruct my country you can send these refugees back which is not going to happen because the main problem for the return of refugees is the lack of security there are no security guarantees
12:19 pm
russia is not being able to deliver these guarantees they have tried before they cannot entrance the regime so it's still a big secure to operate just controlling the regime held areas which means that the 1000000 syrian refugees cannot come back from europe and they cannot return from the neighboring. trees where a lot of pressure is on and in jordan and turkey to send people back to syria it's a very difficult situation and of course the. problem is really for the civilians who've been caught in the crossfire. a syria expert thank you very much for your assessment. the. decision to whether to start talks with north macedonia and albania and. jim is europe minister. says more time is needed to assess the requests by the 2 countries officials say the north of
12:20 pm

12:21 pm
of. the officials had wanted to pay off. he changed once i had to get a construction permission for piece of land and multi-story construction is very good someone came to me and asked before the bright and i thought. i would give you 1000000 euro's but let me start the building because you were take this 1000000 and then you will tell me that i would have this permission he said no he wanted in advance. of any. up to 90 percent of profits from building projects in albania or pocketed by government employees but it's not a big industries that suffer the most. i've asked who is worried about the small businesses like this gift shop that he represents poms and nobody's there to protect them. you know. you can count the times these corrupt inspectors have been convicted on just one hand and then i will state it. most of the
12:22 pm
time they aren't afraid to tool to ask for a bribe. because nobody punishes them. or sends them to jail when they openly ask for a payoff. there is nothing worse than having to give them your monthly profits as a bribe to come case a group. should think. about. the people here in the justice ministry denied any involvement the minister herself says she is actively fighting corruption with a reform of the justice system that is part of the e.u. accession process perhaps it is not just a talent of being it's a talent with all countries even a few working countries and we have done some good steps but of course that we have to do more because the corruption it's not. that you can kill in one day.
12:23 pm
soon. most people will be in you however are far less confidence. survey this current political class when not a much are paying into the european union because if it and to see e.u. the same what happened i think gracious the moment crazy and the use of the prime minister went to china and here all the political class from 1992 until now they all deserve to go to jail these sorts. of mine. with illicit funds flowing steadily and no change in sight albania's prospects of becoming a part of the european union any time soon are diminishing one bribe at a time. not just paul. and then julia given how the ball in the back of a let's put both efforts were moved offside. 4 nil the final score is germany when
