11:08 pm
also stated a desire to leave the european union and reject action on the environment. we in germany are not able to have a big influence on climate change. when you look at the programme of the green party if we achieve that that is the destruction of our industry and of our industry that's not what we want. with polling around 12 percent and most parties are already refusing to join a coalition with them a limited role seems likely to await the a.f.d. in the next german parliament. well our political correspondent simon young was at the party convention interesting he explained the main issues for being head office tempus election. year what they've been discussing here is their. campaign programme which they launched last night and that's under the slogan germany but

11:10 pm
delegates to make sure that this party conference would decide who would lead the party gere in this important election year of course federal elections in september that too has failed that might have strengthened the right so there's a small victory if you like for the moderate wing of the day here in dresden this weekend but these internal battles they rage on. britain is mourning prince philip husband to queen elizabeth he died on friday at age 99 a hand palace announced his funeral will take place next saturday april 17th flags will fly at half mast until then and while the palace has asked. not to gather people are still coming out to pay their respects and the military has been paying their tribute to the prince. but. the gun salutes run out across the united kingdom in honor of prince philip who died on friday at the age of $99.00 from what each barracks in london. actually

11:17 pm
have been unthinkable to play yes 20 years ago for one thing the internet back then was often too slow for opponents to play online so they had to have local area network or parties beyond that no one dreamed you could money through gaming the dota 2 tournament the international is one of the world's biggest sports events this year's prize pool is almost $35000000.00 urals no doubt this contributions to the popularity of sports which even the coronavirus pandemic didn't dampen. these sports times live the moments like these. that went around hates gaming to an immense like e.s.l. one in color how to be house actually. on my badge or even larger audiences for the electronic sports league. kind of a word to any traditional sports or other entertainment events. so even
11:18 pm
during the e.s.l. pro league group stages before the playoffs we saw 3 times as many viewers as we hung jury in the playoffs last year. the playoffs in 2021 the top games are still fast passed into 2 games like counter-strike soccer games like the fat will privately. on strategy games like league of legends to over the past few months and lots of people have also been playing bally rent which combines the hero base shooter john red with tactical gameplay what's a target there should be and if you're not rich enough the games are still being developed to appeal to players but now they're also made to be fun to watch. valerie and is therefore in a very good starting position. because of its connection to leave legends or rather the target audience riot already has it has an easier access to the markets than other sports games. what's your nonstop. league of
11:19 pm
legends still has shooter numbers of fans around the world including. young from seoul oath dream of competing with top players in an international e-sports championship at south korea's capital does offer the best training conditions as players like lee fake us are new york are treated like pop stars and the sports newcomers actively recruited the nurturing grounds of all those south korea's p.c. bounce which sounds exciting but it actually just means p.c. rooms. large internet cafe's with up to over 100 computers woodin and didn't sue took us to see what. it's saturday incentives and student districts in weston still. mentions who are good friends. and almost every day they meet at it. never around 4500 of these internet cafes in salone
11:20 pm
a new ones open all the time. well there aren't as many prejudices today. before a few games a lot of people would see us being addicted to computer games. but now if you are good but something to be proud of. times have changed the history of my. game of choice is league of legends one of the most successful video games in the wild. teams of 5 people with different characters fight against one another the goal is to destroy the other team's base. engines you both have computers at home but they preferred leg n.p.c. bangs to venue so more than just places to play for many young south koreans they're an important part of the social lives. the day we were on route with
11:21 pm
woodridge and so happened to be a game day for the south korean league of legends late a number of professional teams compete in the league and transfer fees for top players can be in the millions of euros almost like with soccer stars a match day many fans don't stay on the culture at home and so those who prefer to watch the games in east sports passed. this is retro game. although there's nothing retro about the game being shown today to top teams from the south korean league are playing against each other when the season is underway this bar shows these boys matches almost every day. who can't get enough of them that proper nerds as they call themselves. to go on will get their game. gaming culture has definitely risible in pristine beach rather than other. gaming it has become so popular that we could watch much as they are these
11:22 pm
here and to be open and free. but if they're getting up off their. millions of fans and millions of euros and prizes and sponsorship that sounds like a success story but not everything in gaming is gold or one thing that struck me is that they are usually maney men and the top teams women. but in the sports especially in the professional sector laws much less than their male colleagues in the ana juniper black is america and one of the best known few made you suppose cost us under. she did commentary on you sports events for years mainly from european and chinese leaks so her one of the biggest problems in gaming is massaging the sexism in society is bad sexism in gaming is worse and that's not to take away all the good that gay men can do as a community because it can be simultaneously one of the most inclusive and wonderful communities and also one of the most vitriolic and hateful communities
11:23 pm
you know if you're on voice comms and you have a woman's voice you were instantly met with a bunch of backlash it's very easy to check just going to you to follow that one of those rabbit holes through really fun to watch this all of the vitriol that can come out women when they're just trying to play the game at a casual and for fun level never mind at a professional level. indiana often experience this. these days she only occasionally streams on twitch. she also gave a pass to you know one of the common. sports scene was just to talk sic any of my male colleagues if i say anything it just means less than if they said it and after thousands of hours and thousands of statements just meeting less a venture lee you just can't take anymore so is the industry doing anything. to improve the situation he put the question to chris to organize a of the tournament the. sports scene mirrors younger
11:24 pm
society what many young people spend time there on the cover of online and then they say things they probably wouldn't say have real life face to face. that's why it's important to implement rules here as well. you know or very strict about these . events during our broadcasts. that's the only way you can guarantee that anyone who wants to take part or watch can do so in a safe environment. there is still a lot to do with many of these balls are provided with adequate support and some end up quitting the game seen feeling frustrated that's not acceptable and it also means a lot of potential is being wasted so when might this change versa lucian's on the problem won't be fixed and the next 5 hear is it will be fixed when i have children and i raise them to love videogames as much as i do and then hopefully if they have
11:25 pm
an interest in it they become a part of this community that's when the problem will be fixed and it's interesting that it's one of the few areas where women and men there's no biological difference what you're competing and we all agree that men can run faster than women and men are stronger than women by any sports you're not running or trying to move everything you want a mouse and keyboard so it should be a level playing field but because of the inherent sergeant that comes with it women aren't. all wow would really take up enough space to to get back good everybody should be able to make the most of their potential in east balls for them and operators even advertise with this promise it's a global market in abidjan the largest city in the core d'ivoire many young people train hard every day after school. every afternoon after school young people fill this cafe it work in district of average odd. 95 year old city
11:26 pm
clacking yet have insisted on do. you know i was 4 or 5 years old when i started playing video games at 1st we just watched our older brothers play my big brother had a computer as i grew older i started playing more too especially at university. records turned his passion into a profession these days he has a deep understanding of the gaming market as a sports are becoming more popular in and across africa the industry is providing and fro a number of jobs and a number of gay men have big dreams. and i don't just play here to have fun i want to be the best and to be the best you have to keep playing i'm discovering. sidique back yoko wants to build the largest gaming community in africa he's working with a number of startups to help them develop games for the local market. and if
11:27 pm
you were starting to see a number of local studios entering the gaming market you're. very making content that contains the colors sounds and stories from here. he just walked into don't you know. what's up if this also allows africa to also be represented in the gaming universe don't you the market has a lot of potential internet and smartphone technology on. on the uptake in africa and 2 thirds of the population under $35.00 millions of e-sports us and many read for content with which they can identify not from games like craigslist and semblance from south africa or the action role playing game korean from cameroon plural hits. the line and the african market is still comparatively small. that thanks to gaming enthusiastic like city. kids to change.
11:28 pm
the east coast market in africa is booming according to one study the continent's annual east coast audience that was 30000000 in 2020 and is expected to rise to 53000000 by 2023 no wonder at the planned africa sports series attracted international investors professional teams from 16 african countries are set to compete in the series what's your take on the market can you suppose be a global game changer one that drives innovation and helps regions florist or have they been overhyped that is not on you tube facebook or the d w dot com and until next.

june during the conflict zone with tim sebastian for years now the government of bangladesh is being criticized around the world for its human rights record my guest this week from back eyes gallery's me foreign affairs advisor to the country's prime minister well it'll be all hard to stop denying the truth about the repression they've been inflicted and clean up their act conflict. goes. on to build. become scarce. climate change has put traditional agriculture under massive pressure. all over the world researchers are searching for solutions. can high tech farms help secure our future. 30 minutes on d. w.
11:30 pm
. passion drama competition rivalry marketing numbers atmosphere power fight that's how intuition love money. expands crime status spammers and friends all. on you tube. i'm sure you want to talk good things about your country because that's what you're paid to do every question you left off you have bunch of really good that they didn't mention is beyond me that you're loving and giving part of convicted murderers the certain 50 of them york. in many ways. for years now the government of bangladesh has been criticised around the world for its human rights record but its reputation received another jolt this month with the release of a new documentary alleging high level bribery and corruption my guest this week
11:31 pm
from back is galleries me foreign affairs advisor to the country's prime minister what will be authorities stop denying the truth about the repression they've been inflicted and clean up their act. now here is very welcome to comfort zone. your country has been. come a byword for egregious human rights abuses which your government routinely denies as an academic who's used to dealing in truth why do you serve a government that seems to have so little regard for the commodity alysa sebastian i think this question needs to be qualified. when you say of igneous human rights violations mike i. explain that
11:32 pm
hoover's human rights is a very large. word well let me remind specific then let me be more specific arbitrary detention torture in force disappearances extrajudicial executions all of which your government is accused of by the un human rights groups around asia human rights watch amnesty international the committee against torture that's what i had and i well. i wish i could accept the allegation in its entirety i will broadly did i say that there have not been instances of. some disappearances. when you talk about torture there is no documented evidence of torture to the best of my. knowledge when committee against torture is
11:33 pm
certain that it's carried on through team lee it's received report after report that it's carried out routinely by your security forces and you would really would have us believe that they've all got it wrong and where bangladesh i would not i would not deny it and i would not say that they have it wrong but i do also want to say that as far as the government is concerned. torture is illegal and we try to make sure that carter doesn't take you know why i was objecting to the way you posed the question mr sebastian is the cause so many good things have happened in bangladesh could a bangladesh is one of the spectacular successes of development yes and you're very good at promoting the successes economic successes for in front of your country and the like but that's not what i have come along about i'm not what i'm asking you
11:34 pm
about i'm asking you about the things that have gone wrong in your country your government for instance claims 0 tolerance of corruption where the boss of transparency international bangladesh him self summed up the extent of corruption when he accused the government of going after only what he called the small fish the activities of corrupt leaders at the top are beyond our imagination he said we don't see repast investigation or effective legal action against any of those big players so so much for the the promise of 0 tolerance for corruption. if you if you recall about 6 to 9 months ago there was a big. action against various corrupt individuals and organisations many of them have been arrested police investigation is taking place. the anti-corruption commission is an inquiry. that at the end of the
11:35 pm
day we have to follow additional processes and this is a time consuming process i'm not saying our process is perfect i have got say that there isn't sometimes a political. considerations also go into it this things are true but where i object and sebastian you are such an experience journalist is that the great you read the picture it's all one side that you think you will really work end up getting the wrong impression that i'm not i me painting the picture i'm relying on reports for internationally respected our organizations like human rights watch amnesty international committee again active in that it is allowing me to a balance that picture with the reality as it happened on the ground yes which is
11:36 pm
which which you are doing but but all of this is pave the way for a high profile documentary which was released this month by the al-jazeera network which alleged shocking levels of corruption among senior officials of your state and your government's immediate reaction was to brand the film false defamatory and the smear you didn't even bother to investigate 1st that's not the sponsor banani government is that. inquiry is taking place it is being inquired but let me really also. ask you the title of that documentary was all the prime minister's men and we were told that it would expose corruption around the prime minister lew relievedly that documentary succeeded in doing that was there is a single evidence which intimidated the prime minister in the alleged.
11:37 pm
corruption i mean this this is where i think a sensible academics and journalists we should. stand back and ask ourselves what was the evidence. given to intimidate the prime minister's involvement and yes this whole document was big as to show how corrupt the regime is going to receive some serious look at looking at the film which was produced by al jazeera he was a television team that was able to locate 2 high level fugitives from justice convict or whose elder brother just happens to be your serving chief of the army general as this up met apparently your annoyance forstmann couldn't find his brothers who were on the run but they did that's pretty embarrassing for you isn't it certainly but on the other hand again i'm not going to be defending everything
11:38 pm
but the way you are putting the person to me i feel almost it is necessary should a person be judged guilty because of the guilt of his brother i think this is a question we need to us now if the brother has helped is if. the brother in. law has helped his brothers to invade justice to avoid. further his criminal activity this accusation would be extremely extremely. valid what happened was long long before this gentleman. became the army and the chief all right well let's let's just look at some of the details which came out in the film about the general general aftermath brothers. 2 of them and this and harris were found guilty of
11:39 pm
involvement in the 1996 murder of a member of a rival party and both absconded from justice and went on the run now 3rd brother joseph was also convicted and spent more than 10 years on death row magically just before his brother as this was promoted to head of the army joseph gets a presidential pardon how did that happen is bangladesh in the habit of giving pardons to convicted murderers to gun down their opponents on the street in cold blood is that what you did you give him a president. mr sebastian the certainty with which you are speaking in many ways is a surprising me and you have linked the appointment of army chief and his brother as release. into one school let me remind you there is one hour a doctor no no no no no mr sebastian little boy you have to be pretty well connected to get
11:40 pm
a power for cold blood letting you know that let me give you the facts then you'll draw your conclusion please let me give you the fact that the brother in question has. about 20 years in prison that is it law in the country that after serving a certain amount of years you may be given for were ot clemency by the president all this happened long before months and months before even the vacancy brother was appointed or arose it happened completely separately this man has 35 years left in the armed forces worked his way up. with a fairly record so why should be maligned. and link
11:41 pm
link this 2 stories together i would like you to look at this time i would like you to look at the timeline of the 2 events these are fixed months apart all right ok dr reef 3 the point is also which the film brought out is that your army chief knew perfectly well where his 2 other brothers were the ones that were on the run and apparently didn't tell the relevant to authorities is not worth investigating it would be averted investigated but please also you know as much as i do what this gentleman outside the jurisdiction of bangladesh and yes this information had been available we would have tried to have extracted extradited them and provided we had an extradition treaty with this book and in fact in many cases we have done and there is no reason to believe that we would not
11:42 pm
have done and you are quite right. that if this republican had been available to the government the government would have taken action but i'm not since is all just too close to the higher echelons of power are too dangerous to delve into in the fact that nobody in your country wants to delve too deeply into suspicions of high level corruption do that too many people disappear and end up dead if they say the wrong thing and ask the wrong questions don't say fact of life in your country no dodo this is the best year. we we are proud. of it we have proud of our liberal democratic system we are proud that we have a prime minister. who has. a very low intolerance of corruption our armed forces a family under civil control and therefore who says that.
11:43 pm
corruption is connected at the high level well how do you how is it how is it then that in a state which is supposed to have a functioning justice system these 2 fugitive brothers of your amici vanished and harris convicted murderers actually a report we took returned to tackle in broad daylight in 2019 to celebrate a family wedding where on many fugitive killers you can shop in a big society wedding mingle with the president of dignity and i say have protection right at the top you know that as well as i do. we are we are both you are absolutely right if it was known to anyone that this gentleman have returned to bangladesh. immediately they would have been apprehended there is no. question about it but they were pictured at the wedding
11:44 pm
doctrine let let let let let us around i mean literally club to convict murders uncles of the bridegroom happily celebrating with everyone else we at telescoping something that happened over 25 years. into a single incident the the brothers had committed a crime in 1906. long before gen and this had even joined the army as a cadets we now. go forward 25 years later and we are saying that these 2 men came back to bangladesh. and if they did and as the photographs this was absolutely a great failure of our. justice ministry
11:45 pm
and the. immigration police in the air force that is the question about that but you will also have to understand that these people had acquired different pass. which unless it was known to the government unless that was on the watch list it is quite easy for them to have slipped in along with thousands of other people who come in and wow i am not running for one moment suggesting that this has not been a failing of the government it was done at the gym really. that's arisen. in a democracy with the kind of free press that you've claimed exists in bangladesh all these allegations from al-jazeera would be plastered all over the newspapers in the broadcast media pans of
11:46 pm
a something that the dhaka tribune so to explain when they wrote to its readers the reason for our silence it said is simple the current state of media and defamation law makes it unwise for any bangladeshi media house to venture into any kind of meaningful comment on the controversy that's it isn't that you have come out the media into submission and muzzled it says become afraid of it sound shadow are you proud of that. if if it were. true as you say i would be ashamed of it but let me tell you what the truth is yes are you saying the paper is lying or are you saying the newspapers lying. let me not. just and let me give you the explanations in this there is a thing called digital security act it is to prevent. violent
11:47 pm
rumors and inciting of people through the. digital platform this law unfortunately which our government inherited was the i think the act was passed in 1906 our government devised it and it is now called the digital security act but sadly we have now are learned that some of the words a very loose and very rich leaves it open to abuse but jump from there to say that the press has been michael to say that. some of president bangladesh let me just tell you there are probably 3 over 6060 daily newspapers been published from the. documentary anarchy
11:48 pm
in collateral private companies i understand amnesty international said that in the 1st 9 months of last year more than $800.00 cases were filed under this act with the loose language that you talk about with many of the most prominent editors and senior journalists increasingly targeted 800 cases in this with using this law which your government apparently inherited your government doesn't seem to have any reservations about using this law does it mean to admit you have is nothing but a weapon silence critics and suppress dissent that's the truth of the divide. no i would accept your criticism and i would have accepted your allegations had you asked the human rights watch of the 800 or so. and i'm taking your freedom as you as you gave me who were arrested how many of them are
11:49 pm
very german you know you you have used a broad figure of 800 how we faced a serious a terrorist attacks in this country we had to fight to fight hard against terrorism how many of those 800 were actually terrorists how many of those 800. criminals who incited violence. activity without differentiating you have given me the figure of 600 police i challenge you to look at that figure and tell me how many were actually journalists and what i can i can break i can break down some of those figures for you because human rights groups are pretty much united in their condemnation of your government's crackdown on free speech especially during the current plan demick
11:50 pm
human rights watch said you arrested journalist artist students doctors political opposition members and activists who spoke out against the government's response to the pandemic or otherwise criticize the ruling party last june you even arrested a 15 year old boy for allegedly defaming the prime minister on facebook the child was sentenced to time in a juvenile detention all right thanks let me now. and had this question as as as clearly as i possibly can you have been telling you are telling your viewers that during this period of pandemic the government did all sorts of horrible things. have you told your ordeals that bangladesh is one of the few in the world compared to your own in the u.k. the united states or anywhere else in the world where we have actual spendable
11:51 pm
really well with our limited resources we have one of the lowest death rates in the world we have the highest rate of recovery we have it's and that our hospitals to provide treatment none of these facts mentioned you have picked up 15 example or so i'm sure you want to change the subject doctor is wrong i'm not sure you want to talk good things about your country because that's what you're paid to do that's why you're no government that's why i'm from brazil. why is lie i why i'm asking do you turn a blind eye to what the un committee against torture has been calling the widespread and we've seen commission of torture and ill treatment you passed an act in 2013 supposedly outlawing torture but 6 years later only 17 cases had been filed against security personnel and not
11:52 pm
a single one had been completed by 6 years later not one in 6 years had been released it is that a proud achievement for government is that allegedly is cracking down on torture it isn't is it it's a great. well let me again think you're right in the sense when you say that is in 7 years number of. years of target have been filed and none of them yes. i take your statement to be 3 and i will agree that this is not a very. good. raffle but the truth of the matter is we get past the law. the truth of the matter is we are trying to build a bill with it and where i am constantly objecting not because you think i'm doing this because i am as you said i am paid.
11:53 pm
to do this i might done the same thing to you and say is this not right that you are you are being paid simply to make this attacks that are putting it into broad wide on every question you have are so. you have gone straight into the negative mentions even on them when you said very clearly that all this horrible thing that happened please tell me another country in the whole wide world with just the pandemic as effectively as our government will consider is a very good tactic to change the subject and i don't want to leave it because you said your government is taking action against human rights abuses are is it time to take action against members of the so called rapid action the tally in that you
11:54 pm
have because they the un says its members have been credibly alleged to have committed torture arbitrary arrests and acknowledged detention disappearances and extrajudicial killings of people in their custody you tell me about the good things your country has done but i am not embarrassed with the actions that this rapid action but alan has been carrying out in the name of your government your government is killing the feeling against killing it. let me say with all orders and humility and embarrassment that the sum of that is that you have just. stated are true there have been instances of that which nobody in the government in his or her right might defend but and lou what you do john who's in charge or so of course there wasn't a memorandum on nominees in advance. with mr sebastian let me finish you have asked
11:55 pm
me a question let me finish answering what you did not see in your. question is how many of those. rapid battalion police force have been removed from services how many of them are under investigation and how many of them have been charged this was not mentioned by you this is the role of the government that when it finds out that something had the biggest violation of human rights or law has taken place there must get to the bottom i don't think we are all of us. but i do resent not being given the credit for the efforts that we have. all right talked to gary's me in good to have you in conflict thank you very much indeed. thank you myth about you know been fucked up i don't think you
