11:06 am
referendum and they seem very nervous right now as the situation on the ground. well we've been speaking to sources in and around the all rich city of kirkuk where we're hearing these lines from the kurdish regional government reporting on iraqi government troop build up around that area those sources telling us they say those shia militia groups and the iraqi military seem to have moved forward to positions between two to three kilometers to the south and the west of the city the kurdish regional government security council saying that those forces include tanks and artillery. also hearing from sources in kara cook saying that push further special forces have been moved into that area as well in in anticipation one would think. a potential attack now it's important to
11:07 am
recognize the that the great significance of all this is iraq's second largest oil producing area kurdish peshmerga took control of this area in two thousand and fourteen follow the withdrawal of iraq you forces. in the in the face of an i saw offensive on the kurds appealing control of that area ever since it is a disputed area the k r g. says that it is not going to withdraw from that area they are body government has said that he doesn't see any kind of military confrontation as being a solution to this ongoing crisis following this referendum but he has also warned the peshmerga is also will decay argy that. should not interfere with any iraqi forces operating in that area it's also important to recognize that if a context but it was only last week that we saw victory over i saw south of the
11:08 am
city of kirkuk in that area of how we should the last bastion for i saw so we know that there have been there are a lot of iraq in that area but it certainly seems to suggest at least growing tension in or around that flashpoint city of kirkuk a chance right for an era bill thank you very much for bringing us up to date with the latest there. now on mars later on sound sochi has used a rare televised address to call for unity to resolve the crisis has been under a lot of pressure for not condemning the armies allege of uses against the muslim minority most of the refugees who fled myanmar for bangladesh are traumatized by what by what they experienced in a camp at conses bazaar in bangladesh al jazeera is mom and john jordan met one woman who lost most of her family for resume. there is nothing

11:12 am
ninety's the president and the main opposition democratic alliance had been involved in an eight year legal battle let's cross over to correspondent tanya page who is in south africa's judicial capital don't fontayne tanya so it seems more bad news for president zuma tell us about this particular case and what this ruling means going forward for the president. well this particular case as you said goes back eight years to a time when the president who at the time was defeated president was facing corruption charges which were controversially dropped by the in here of the national prosecuting authority the reason he gave at the time was on the basis of secretly recorded phone conversations which he said suggested a political interference in their legal pursuit of then president deputy president jacob zuma who as a consequence was set by then president tabo mbeki so it is something that has hung
11:13 am
over jacob zuma for many years in which the opposition political party the democratic alliance has pursued doggedly in court although this may seem like a decisive ruling it has been left open to some interpretation because i've been speaking to the spokesperson for the national prosecuting authority and he says what the supreme court hasn't ruled is directly to instruct if you like the reinstatement of the charges which the high court said last year so although the appeal by the president on the n.p.a. has been dismissed with costs there is still some room within it for their interpretation i have been speaking to a legal expert here and he says on the one hand that these charges should be reinstated but as i said the national prosecuting authority which ultimately controls the decision to prosecute anyone it is saying that the ball is now back in
11:14 am
its court and it will really look at the investigation if you like and may indeed end up taking frisch intentions from the president tanya this has been a difficult year for president zuma has and i mean there have been other cases there's been allegations of corruption against him that he's had to face the year how much has this damage his presidency his credibility and what impact has it had on him. look this is a pretty difficult. impact on the president as she said he has been under an enormous amount of pressure and we have seen some rather unprecedented scenes in south africa over the last year in particular with hundreds if not thousands of people taking to the streets are calling for him to step down are calling for the african national congress the governing party to recall him to remove him from the presidency but despite all of that the president remains firmly in power what this
11:15 am
is ultimately particularly about is at the end of the year there is a elective conference in which the successor to president zuma will be chosen by the party and a lot of the machinations around this court case are seen as being. him trying to sort of influence who follows him and some analysts believe that is in an effort to try and protect himself from possible prosecution and i think what this is the fact that we have seen these many years of corruption charges hanging over him mounting pressure from some members of the public still he is very firmly seated still in the presidency and i think that very much spells out that ultimately the a.n.c. party itself will decide what happens to the president is going forward.
11:16 am
like i said some legal options facing both the da and the national prosecuting authority and the president so this is by no means although an important date in court it will not by no means be the decisive one if you like for the president tanya page in bloemfontein thank you very much for that still ahead on al-jazeera. you sneezy goods for so i talk to you in five years relief as a son and his family are freed in pakistan after being kidnapped by taliban linked fighters thousands of police are sacked in colombia after the killing of farm workers we'll look at how the drug trade still is an obstacle to peace. from the waves of the soon. to the contours of the east. hello and welcome to international weather forecast now we have
