cosey in another matter matter actually to prevent the justice system from continuing to do use his agenda for for for other court cases really now and they could as sarkozy has been sentenced to 3 years in jail 2 of which a suspended sentence and even the one year actually he could spend at home with a brace that bright ankle ok so what is this likely to mean for him personally and politically. well it is a real blow for nicola cortese not only because as you said there are other court cases pending actually the next this coming up in 2 weeks simon nicolas sarkozy was obviously hoping that he would win 1st points symbolic points today that hasn't worked and also it's will have certainly a bad influence a huge impact on his political career because he could see the former president he was president from 2007 to 2012 we're still hoping to maybe stage
4:04 pm
a comeback for next year's presidential elections and not that seems quite unlikely really ok so very clearly as damaging to his political fortunes how is he viewed from. nicolas sarkozy this kind of a hate love relationship between he him and the french some people really adore him some people hate him but he has a lot of supporters on the right conservative party really so many people were hoping for him to come back and mind you in france it is possible even if you have been condemned at court or if you have been out of court at the you know you've actually can make a political comeback that is seems really impossible in other countries such as germany for example but here it would have been possible now it seems quite unlikely though with today's sentence because it just doesn't give him a lot of time to clear him of all charges lisa lives in paris thank you. now it's a mirror now of police and soldiers have fired on protesters return to the streets
4:05 pm
after a weekend crackdown that killed at least 18 people and wounded 30 others according to the u.n. police in young girl used tear gas and rubber bullets to clear protestors on monday local media report one person was hurt it's now been a month since a military coup which has prompted daily protests calling for a return to democracy ousted civilian leader aung san suu kyi has appeared by a video link in a closed court lawyer said to new charges have been added to the allegations against her she looked in good health during the hearing. we can get more on this from journalist dave grusin about who's reported extensively from the 1000000 mom and joins us now from kuala lumpur malaysia a welcome dave i was i'm searching lawyer says the additional charges against her include inciting under arrest what is this likely to refer to. i mean this looks he put out a statement that was set up before the 2 actually happened as there was thoughts
4:06 pm
that it might happen that basically told the public hey do not back down do not accept this military takeover fight for democracy that's what that publicly refers probably refers to but the bottom line is this it is more trumped up ridiculous charges on song suchi i mean if you look at some of the charges they have on her they're using in some cases colonial era laws that you can twist and turn to make anything a violation the bottom line here this new military which to me m.r. is just taking pages out of the playbook that the old military was used to use they have been fighting. for 30 years and they can not beat her in a fair fight the november election is just one example of that where her party won by a landslide and now the generals are coming up with this way to try to use the country's judicial system which is not independent to try to put her away for good that way because they cannot beat her fair and square so how will these additional charges
4:07 pm
affect the protest movement you think i mean this is just going to add more fuel to the fire and their bellies they hear that she was in court they see that there's more trumped up charges against her and just a theory it's them even more you see so many protesters they march with pictures of on some suchi calling for her release and now they see that she's got more of these additional ridiculous charges on her it just gives them more incentive to keep going. foreign minister of the association of southeast asian nations that you to hold a video conference tomorrow to discuss they scribe's has what is their view of it and can they bring any pressure to bad. well i wasn't if you look at you know past histories generally been a toothless organization but they do have the potential i stress potential to really have some influence here now in the show and the reason why i should say is because me m.r. the generals included value their membership in an auction more than they value
4:08 pm
their membership in the united nations even oxygen is the one members of that they value the most but i wasn't in the short term it would be an accomplishment if they could just get the generals to agree to no more lethal force against the demonstrators and if the generals actually stuck to it long term though to defuse the situation and come up with a workable situation is going to take is going to require some difficult diplomatic acrobatic work i mean just last week reuters leaked a plan that agin had some members of it add to have an election roughly a year from now and i wish you would send observers to make sure it was free and fair well so many demonstrators were furious about that whole idea because they believe they had their free and fair election back in november and the n l d won by a landslide and because the generals didn't like the result they took out her government on february 1st but the demonstrators want their votes from november honored and the people that the elected into office back in november they want

today sacrifice their future for hong kong and maybe this is the last chance to see them or say goodbye that's why it means so much to me it's all good of all all that i think the activists alleged crime organizing an informal primary election last year the hope was to select pro-democracy candidates to run for legislative council elections every teen matter in much of the world but it took place shortly after the national security law took effect and for china's rulers it was a threat one they say was manipulated from abroad. a small number of countries are vilifying china by spreading lies about territories including hong kong they're up to their usual tricks of politicizing and weaponize are human rights issues to interfere in other country's internal affairs and we will resist there's. the activists taken to court in these vans today face up to life in prison if convicted
4:11 pm
. $47.00 individuals being charged. with chinese uncalled for if you promise that the national security is in a very narrow sense. it's clear that iraq is not going to be. sufficient for such margaret and with a number of other foreign countries the international community can see the results of the hong kong people we want to judge just to be fair to be independent and to be objective and give them a fair trial. activists are concerned that the court could be pressured to impose severe sentences in a bid to cripple the democracy movement once and for all. hoping for international support. they say hand comes last freedoms are at stake. so more headlines from around the world now starting garner where the country's president and monaco for add though and his wife have become the world's 1st recipients of my corona virus
