5:04 pm
united nations. it is not being properly processed and safeguards are not in place. >> we are not opposed to returns as long as people are not in need of international protection. they have not applied to asylum there'll be no mass deport aces. the e.u.'s external boarder agency has been deployed to accompany the deportees back. >> migrants and refugees have been informed about their choices. to apply for asylum seekers in greece, not to playat all. choices many do not want to make. some have family members that reached northern europe before
5:05 pm
it shut its doors. >> the deal and the daghter boarder restrictions have not stopped the arrivals. it may have slowed. almost 2,000 people have landed on the shore. the deportation may send a message that the doors are closed - at least through illegal channels. more on the top story now, the revelations showing how the rich and powerful, including former and heads of states have been using offshore tax agents. we can take to the editor of the organized crime and corruption project which was involved. this is one. bigge biggest leaks after. can you put into context the
5:06 pm
sheer volume of data. >> it's probably the greatest treasure trove of documents, stretching from 1977 all the way through, including 215,000 companies, including some of the biggest names in the world, and secret activities that they have been involved in for all these years, stuff that has never come to life, but it has come to life. >> as you say, 11 million leaked files. 30 years of analysis. what are the damning conclusions from all of this? the most damning conclusion is how many were involved. this is one company of 2,000,
5:07 pm
3,000 registration companies in the world. we have 29 members of forbes, 11 sitting leaders of countries, and countless numbers of parliament and business, and it's amazing how much activity there was. this is an incredible part of business, and people were doing this for everything, owning yachts to laundering money, avoiding taxes. >> we have to make the distinction. you have money laundering that is serious. using the tax havens to avoid tax - that is something that is legal. >> it is in some countries, depend on what country you are in, and on your intention. >> what will happen now, what will be the fall out from the
5:08 pm
leaks? >> well, i think once people see how much of this is really involved and how many businesses that we know are involved. there'll be a reexamination of the roles in offshores. people create offshores to do a deal. when you realise how many businessmen - it was part of the way of doing business, where many companies were involved, going to a series offed different offshores, it will raise the issue of why we do these things, is it for legal or illegal purposes. there was a lot of big names and businesses, in the middle of a
5:09 pm
chain moving from five offshores, and it doesn't look particularly legal. countries will look at is this important. is it used for business or criminal activities. >> and aside from casting a spotlight on the use of offshore tax havens, a deal of information has come to light. does it raise questions. are people going to be curious about how much goes on, which we don't know about. >> that's what i mentioned. this is one of thousands of companies do this. they were not the bad actor, they were not the bad actor of the lot. there are worse organizations that are out there. it raises a question of how extensive this is. it's huge parts of the economy. >> well, it's fascinating.
5:10 pm
thank you. quite remarkable revelations contained in the papers. thank you for taking the time to talk to us. >> the refugee crisis in europe, and a controversial deal between the european union and turkey, turkey is building reception centers for migrants set to return from greece. tents and stone flooring are being prepared. labourers at the site say they started friday and will be working into the night on sunday. refugees will be sent to the turkish down. harry fawcett is there sending this update. >> if all goes according to plan, and both governments say it will, this is a place where the first batch of people returned from greece to turkey will arriving, and in a few hours same. this is the port, and a few
5:11 pm
meters away, the dock you can see lit up in the background, that's where they've been making a village where people will be protested. people adamant they don't want to stay here. there's large-scale protests, and a lot of people signing a petition in the main square in front of a big squin. the government for its part says they have no plans to have a permanent presence here. that they'll send people on to camps in turkey. potentially somewhere else in the country, and are not saying so far. the interior minister has been talking, saying the deal that came into force on march 20th had an impact in terms of numbers leaving, heading for greece. they dropped off steeply. there are several hundred picked
5:12 pm
up in the greek islands in since. the real assessment is the fairness of this, whether people's right will be observed. it is a big experiment in how to deal with the refugee crisis, and an experiment that will have a big influence on individuals lives of thousands. >> i'm joined by a researcher with amnesty international, and we are hearing from harry fawcett about the scale of the refugee crisis and the impact on turkey. it appears now that neither turkey nor greece has the infrastructure or resources to implement the deal. >> as next, we have serious concerns about the deal. it's contrary to international laws, and turkey's own legal provisions. we have uncovered credible
5:13 pm
evidence last week of forced returns on mass, of people saking asylum. these are returns on a shocking scale. we heard of hundred to 200 people returned at a time. >> this is people from turkey coming back. their safety and right can't be guaranteed. how difficult do you think it will be for this agreement to be enforced. >> well, the agreement, according to everything we know is not implementable. there's no infrastructure. the asylum procedure system in turkey is in its infancy. so there's no infrastructure - there's little support in turkey, and in addition, as i mentioned people who are sent from europe to turkey are at
5:14 pm
risk of being sent onwards to syria, which is a serious concern. >> how might the refugees and migrants in greece respond to being deported back to turkey. do you expect to see riots and unrest. >> people are scared to be sent to turkey, they know that it's a risk. in addition to the risk of being sent to another country, there's a risk of being kept in limbo in turkey with no reasonable prospect of leaving regularly. europe and other countries have not shouldered an equitable burden, and there's no possibility of being resettled regularly from turkey elsewhere. people are desperate and still are leaving on boats. >> what do you foresee happening in the short to medium-term future, as you say, now we know
5:15 pm
the legal routes into southern and western europe, the deal is just not practical. that cannot be implemented. numbers suggest that, well, if it could come into force, it's not going to deter refugees from coming over. >> indeed. >> what kind of scenario are we heading towards? >> i think we are heading towards a disastrous scenario. people on both sides are desperate. people in greece, turkey, they have nothing left to lose, and in those situations, you know, it's concerning, and reports from greece of chaos, panic and confusion with inadequate resources, and hundreds, if not thousands of people whose future is unclear. >> thank you, appreciate you

5:17 pm
50 government soldiers have been killed. they report on the battle for the largest city. >> on the offensive al nusra front fighters advance on the town south of aleppo. it's a fight to gain control of the town from pro-syrian forces who captured it months ago. the tanks shell their enemy's positions from a distance. the battle has started. it takes a few hours for the fighters to declare victory, after they managed to take control of the highest point. the syrian army and the foreign militias suffered heavy losses. we managed to cease control to force the fighters to pull out of the town and surroundings. we destroyed the government lines of supply and killed militia fighters. >> unexploded shells and
5:18 pm
shrapnel from bombs littered the streets. >> on the walls, sectarian slogans are everywhere, and they indicated that fighters from a shi'ite group were here. >> shortly after rebels fighters, they started to bomb the area. the frequent question of territory is a signature of the war. the army doesn't have enough troops on the ground to maintain gains and the rebels lack the air cover needed to protect advances. five years after the conflict began, the fighting continues now, to yemen, where the president abd-rabbu mansour hadi announced a surprise cabinet reshuffle. weeks before peace talks are set to take place in kuwait. help us to understand the
5:19 pm
ramifications. we are joined by adam baron, he's an analyst and a fellow at the european council on foreign relations. could you start by explaining what is behind this latest move, this change in the cabinet, in the vice presidency, and the premiership at this point in time. why now. it's interesting timing. we are looking at the decision coming two weeks before peace talks in kuwait are set to start. roughly a week before ceasefires start, and we are seeing the replacement from the prime minister. he was one of the few political figures in yemen, who despite picking a side in the war and siding with muqtada al-sadr and abd-rabbu mansour hadi, was seen as a con sensis figure, he's being replaced with a right-hand
5:20 pm
manned of ali abdullah saleh, the former president, and he is, i would say one of the most controversial prime ministers. it suggests a we have the peace talks horizon that there's a possibility that the battle could be heating up. >> he was seen as a controversial figure, not a conceal tarry movals you go into peace talks. >> when you look at the current political consideration, there's long-standing north-south areas. they are supportive of the
5:21 pm
saudi-led intervention, they are viewed teggively in the future. so there is not just controversial in terms of people opposed to the military intervention. he is controversial among supporters of the intervention. >> i would say it's a step - i mean it's an interesting move. it's a step away from conciliation. that's how it looks on the surface. of course with yemen, what is going on behind the scenes is more important than what is going on in front of our eyes. >> it remains to be seen how this move will be viewed not just within yemen, but internationally. >> on the surface of it. it looks leek he'll be more of a controversial, divisive figure. what about the longer term
5:22 pm
ramifications. given that the president abd-rabbu mansour hadi is not in the country, could we look at positioning of ali mosin as a future president. >> i would say all things are on the table at this point. ali mossin as president of yemen, it's hard to imagine that scenario. i think there are a number of powerful people within yemen and outside of yemen that would be pleased to see that happen. . >> the question is the fact whether you have enough people on the ground. i think having ali mossan president is something that would exacerbate north-south tensions. that being said, could he play the role in the forefront of the war. could he use relationships with the northern tribesman to pay the way.
5:23 pm
and the key question is does ali want himself to be president. this is someone who historically has done things behind, rather than public. one of the figures prepared to sit behind the scenes and take care of things from there. i would have to question whether he, himself wants to be president. he's pleased with the fact that a bit more than a year of having to flee yemen due to the invasion, leaving yemen in the dead of the night, a wanted man fleeing for his life. he's now been appointed vice president which i think when you look at the region. that's an impressive comeback story that we have seen. >> thank you. good to get your thought, joining us from beirut. thank you now, armenia is accusing
