2:01 pm
this week kicks off a year of celebrations through germany's best known composer who thinks plan b. told him in honor of his 250th birthday a new exhibition in bonn brings us closer to the man and his music. on how to how free glad you could join me us a paid make a boeing is suspending production of its 737 knots and line a stall say in january the best selling aircraft was grounded last march following 2 fatal crashes in just 5 months boeing has not delivered any new 737 since then what it worked on the cause of those crashes now the production freeze by one of the largest u.s. exports as well impact supplies and lines around the world as well as the u.s.
2:02 pm
economy. there are 400 brand new 737 max aircraft parked in boeing's holding area they've been grounded since april this year some are even parked in the employee parking lot the production stop slated for this coming january is a drastic measure and it's bad for boeing's 12000 employees i think holding production as a pretty major downside that disrupts the whole supply chain that puts labor and terrible spot causes. a real loss of the economies of scale that this airplane has and you keep that assembly line go on because of all the efficiencies in october 28th tina 737 max crashed in indonesia then another one went down in ethiopia last march 346 passengers were killed in those 2 plane crashes with the 737 max is faulty steering software playing a decisive role in both incidents so far boeing has been unable to deliver
2:03 pm
a software correction that can be approved by the us federal aviation administration the 737 is boeing's best selling aircraft airline's of place thousands of orders so u.s. airlines and european air carriers of had to cancel flights due to lack of aircraft the airlines themselves are in just a terrible spot because they're selling spring break they're selling summer without knowledge of what their fleet is and all parties need to have complete transparency here so we can come up with some reasonable plan you know get this crisis get things back on track the loss of production at boeing might have a ripple effect that could burden the entire u.s. economy. let's talk through all of this now i'm joined by monica janes from the business good to see money i have enough talk us through this how big of a blow is this the boeing as well as the u.s. aviation industry well i have tried to gather some numbers some facts and figures
2:04 pm
helen and 77 max crisis all. already cost a boeing some $9000000000.00 u.s. dollars and there are experts out there who say well now this could easily double that's a huge amount and of course i mean yesterday when the news came that they would suspend production of the $77.00 max shares fell by 4 percent. that is not a crisis but it's quite a drop also now this decision to suspend the production of the 7 spirits 7 max is on president it does have a big impact on some $600.00 suppliers and companies are all linked to boeing and thousands of jobs of course just to give you an idea of the cash flow of g.e. aviation that's the company that makes the engines for the plane together with a french company a france a saffron and they say that they'll be hit with a loss of roughly 1400000000 this year alone and things could get worse and then of course there are other companies that are highly dependent on boeing like fuselage
2:05 pm
make a spirit every systems the 737 max model accounts for 50 percent of that company's revenue that is a blow boeing can either say well that's bad luck or they can pay these companies so that they stand right ready in case the 737 max gets airborne again nevertheless it certainly sounds costly and i can't help but wonder about those ally and say that have already ordered one of these models i mean we're going to how is that i mean that those airlines now for more than 9 months mostly u.s. airlines they have the biggest fleet of 737 max they either have to cancel destinations which is costly or they have to lease different aircraft which again is costly for them also impacts chinese airlines they have a lot of those this aircraft this particular model and the 3 biggest chinese airlines actually were among the 1st to sue boeing and also compensation which is why boeing this summer such a size aside $5000000000.00 to live up to that we now know the. is by no way
2:06 pm
means enough there's also european airlines like ryan air is a big custom of the 737 max barrel hit the ramifications are huge do you think that boeing will be able to come back from this in the near future well that is i mean as you said i mean boeing is one of the largest exporters of the united states it's only one of the biggest names in the u.s. corporate world there's no way that the white house administration would lead go of boeing they'll be ways somehow to somehow supported but experts look at it is say how can it be that a company like this miscalculated the situation so badly that they would continue production now they have a backlog or that they sit on $1400.00 aircraft in storage we don't know whether they were ever be airborne they have underestimated just the time it will take for
2:07 pm
recertification and all of that is problematic but boeing keeps a message they say we will be airborne again prior you already is safely returning the $77.00 max to service. and i mean given the fact that most of us still fly boeing just not 77 max it'll probably work out for boeing in the long run right we'll have to see of course 2020 an election year in the u.s. as well the ramifications for the u.s. economy that's we want to jones thanks very much. a quarter in pakistan has sentenced the country's former president pervez musharraf to death he was found guilty of high treason for suspending the constitution in 2007 was shot a ruled pakistan with a heavy hand from 1909 to 2008 after leading a bloodless military coup against a civilian government to avoid a challenge to his rule he suspended the constitution and purged the judiciary no musharraf is currently in self-imposed exile in dubai was tried in absentia.
2:08 pm
i'm joined now by the yemeni correspondent john joya in islamabad put this into context for us how significant is this. i think it is but it is might significant and it's unprecedented to in the history of our response i think it has never been sentenced to death to like that in pakistan but of course it up towards the constitution and he is rule of law in pakistan and the country has been changing currently and he's judicially is getting there and mark where dates but legally and having the audience will be of course. with that appeal which is still looming i mean do you think if a sentence will actually be carried out. i need to say that. as he has the right to read and order and it got me months but i think back on government bill not able to bring him back from the bay there is generally
2:09 pm
a living on 7 balls it's i did it he said i served the nation and needed to see in part the betterment of the country this was his 1st to respond after the verdict so i don't think. so that it did the sentence has been carried out from not so we've heard from the the former media of course the military in pakistan is highly influential and powerful how they react to it. military is all orderly backing musharraf and what will be there and has been right in this tender this case though there is no official response from the military but to be happy under. they have been 100 by and as we have seen 2 weeks ago the hearing of the legal loopholes in the extension of the chief of the army started easily can vote but it is quite concerned on the b.g. is quite concerned about it it would be his buddy you know when you correspondent

whole lives in camps like that up in kenya like mohammed from somalia who we meet in this report. mohammad have to lie he has come to pray at his father's grave had no way in one of the biggest refugee camps in the world that. he's here to honor the memory of his father but the site is also yet another painful reminder of his own suffering. i hate. the times still living in the camp where my father got sick passed away. mohammed's parents fled their still conflict ridden home country somalia almost 3 decades ago to see graf huge in neighboring kenya and mohammed was a child he would have never threw it at the age of 28 he his wife and 3 children would still be refugees here according to crimean rule they are confined to life inside the camp and are not allowed to work.
2:13 pm
both my wife and i were born here our children that were born here it's very difficult to stay where you are born for your entire life we don't have the freedom of movement which is a basic universal human rights. i feel like i'm in prison and i'm not able to leave. mohamed is one of more than 200000 refugees here in the. fields unwanted in kenya the government has been threatening for years to close the camp heightening his feelings of uncertainty he also feels neglected by the international community which has shifted its attention to other humanitarian crises elsewhere. dad was never meant to be a long term solution yet for most people life as a refugee here in the camps is all they know this drawn out encampment that is here
2:14 pm
18 level of humanitarian assistance and the only distant prospect of resettlement has collectively taken a severe mental health toll on thousands of residents. sounds one of the n.g.o.s operating here says the protracted crisis in the camp has caused a growing number of refugees to develop mental health conditions. depression is one of the illnesses we truly see alarmingly. creased amongst the if it is depression is serious because most of the time you get a fridge is attempting suicide it's actually due to depression. mohamed says he suffers from anxiety and insomnia and he's not alone he says many of his former school friends have given up hope some of them drifted into drug addiction yet the others have even committed suicide 10 seconds later. my friends have hung themselves because of what they are going through it's happened several
2:15 pm
times in this camp and sometimes i think about killing myself because of the hardship i'm going through but then i think of my children they always say for me. mohammed says he's not ready to give up just yet he wants to fight on his children so that they can have a better future so they can get an education and enjoy the freedoms he never had for him self his wish is to leave the camp before he dies so that he doesn't have to be buried next to his father as a refugee. let's talk more about this now with a good a yen since she's a member of the opposition free democrats and the chair of the human rights committee does talk here in berlin great to have you with us what are your expectations from this forum currently underway in geneva. my expectations are that it will send a signal to all states across the world that these forgotten crises these
2:16 pm
situations as we just saw in the report of a refugee camp dop will have to change only with the commitment of the international community and when we. when we take a look at the funding of the kenyan program off the u.n.h.c.r. . just 2019 it says it is with 43 percent underfunded that means that you and h.c.r. cannot act in a proper way and we need to change that international community needs to change that and i think this global forum will be one means of of having more funding in the future do you think the international community will actually listen though because they have been a tourist the slow one coming up with commitments concrete actions. well i think it is important for certain countries such as germany also as well but also turkey ethiopia and costa rica kohl convening this global forum to step up and also to
2:17 pm
take into account which steps could be taken with the current money that is in the system for example we in germany need to take into account that in the coalition contract between our government coalition they have an earmark funds ready to be upscaled about 30 percent and so far these on your market funds are not being met to the dick we they need to because organizations and also refugees depend on flexibility in the system right that is that is a goal i think we should share let's talk a little bit more about germany then because german foreign minister. attending the geneva refugee forum let's have a listen to what he had to say and then i want to come back to you. first of all we have to share the responsibilities over more shoulders and stronger shoulders secondly we have to give refugees the prospect of self-determination and
2:18 pm
a life with dignity and. germany will continue to make contributions to. our dual capacity our 2nd biggest donor and the country with the 5th biggest number of refugees. so of course must there clearly pointing out all the things that germany already does to help the global refugee situation but do you think that germany could do more. yes we could definitely mark up and the scale of the an earmark funds i was talking about earlier because these an earmark funds are very flexible in handling humanitarian crises that are have not been on the tracks of governments of fire so whenever there's a crises coming up we can we can take these on earmarks funds as a german donor and give them into these crises that need the money most and germany has promised in his contract. on your mark 30 percent of the funds they are giving
2:19 pm
in into the humanitarian system so far that hasn't happened yet and that's that's something we need to urge the government in germany to do overall good or would you say that things have changed in germany the countries actually tightened their policy on refugees off to the rise of the far right populists here. i think it has changed and also that the global compact on migration and refugees has changed the debate here i would call the global compact. a landmark so far when it comes to international cooperation in solving the crisis of migration and germany has stood up and will also continue to stand up also the f.d.p. and the winners tag even though we are in the opposition will continue to stand by the government in that sense but also to urge the government to do more than they
