12:00 pm
at this time on a just. when the news breaks that it is an insurrection great change going through the streets of the us and the story bill it's. much better marketing. when people need to be heard they thought they were american until they broke the law and now they're deported to cambodia al-jazeera has teams on the ground to bring you most award winning documentaries and live music on and on line. cattle and he's deposed president as a wanted man after spain issues an international warrant for his arrest for rebellion sedition and misuse of funds.
12:01 pm
i'm richelle carey this is al jazeera life and hall so coming up. russian and syrian troops launch an offensive to retake a border city under our control in syria. what is going on on models i love the movie the crisis and no one will help us a desperate plea from hundreds of refugees who say they have been abandoned on mannus island. to the new wave of artisans in hong kong waving modern life and to an ancient craft. an international search and arrest warrant has been issued for deposed catalogue president carlos put him on spanish prosecutors want to investigate him for rebellion and sedition over last month's declaration of independence but the sacked leader is missed two days of court hearings in madrid. and brussels where he
12:02 pm
intends to challenge any attempt to extradite him to spain but he has also said he's willing to cooperate with belgian authorities elgin has twenty four hours to react to the european arrest warrant several months aides are also being sought so catalans views about all of this the really split over how the deposed president has handled this crisis. she could getting that in india the new i want catalonia to be independent and i think all politicians are doing everything possible so they can help calm the public we are suffering a bit because spanish politicians are playing like a cat chasing a dog but i think it's not going to let us down you know she defends having to do you need i don't know what beliefs they have but when someone does what he's done and calls for independence and then flees that's not good he's fleeing from the law the president has to fulfill the law if he starts doing something outside of it that is going to lose everything he stated traitorous following the developments in brussels so david fishman has said that he would fight you know extradition being
12:03 pm
basically forcibly and sent back to spain but is there any reason to think that he will voluntarily appear before court today. well i just you know what the procedure is the federal prosecutor's office here which received the warrant studying the paperwork they'll then hand them over to an investigative judge and a spokesman for the prosecutor's office said that they will get the papers to an investigative judge either today or on sunday and that means that bush tomorrow and the rest of his cabinet ministers have twenty four hours to appear before that investigative judge if they don't then the police will be sent to arrest them but it is very clear that bush tomorrow is actually going to cooperate as he said with the belgian courts so he will resent surrender and appear along with his. cabinet
12:04 pm
ministers depose cabinet ministers before that court but we don't yet know when those papers are going to be served to that court but this is under the european arrest warrant procedure and that actually means the whole process can take up to sixty days and in some special circumstances up to ninety days so it's a process that could last for something like three months and clearly when he appears before that investigative judge the deposed president of catalonia will actually say that he has grounds for challenging the basis of those arrest warrants he says that perhaps we don't know what his tactics will be but perhaps a human rights have been abused or that he can use another way of challenging the arrest warrants which is. which is a special way of looking at the laws of the two countries the charges of sedition charges of rebellion rebellion carries a thirty year prison sentence they're going to find out in the court in the court
12:05 pm
will judge this whether the rebellion and sedation as defined in madrid as the same as rebellion and sedation are defined here in belgium now that could be a very long process and that would allow i don't think these are the tactics of. i'm on is mrs that would allow them to remain free if they get bail and and carry on with campaigning for the regional elections that have been cool for the sever the twenty first by madrid so they will carry on what they call that peaceful fight for the independence and freedom of catalonia here in inside brussels using the safety and security of the heart of the european union so those are the tactics he intends to remain free but cooperate fully with the belgian judicial system ok david satter live for us in brussels david thank you. and military assault to push out of the border city under its control in syria is underway russian jets are pounding on the syria iraq border in the doors or countryside six civilians were
