let me celebrations in kosovo as capital to mark ten years of independence from serbia security forces marched through pristina as part of a weekend the festivities cost of achieved autonomy in two thousand and eight after years of conflict its sovereignty is recognized by more than one hundred countries including the u.s. and most of the e.u. has yet to be recognized by soviet russia china. confronting increasingly. dominated region a political leader was killed last month in the town of. actually it was under simmons spoke to journalists and politicians who say they now face constant intimidation. it's a daily ritual lighting candles and paying respect to a politician murdered a month ago in this lawless city all of the event of a leader of a minority cause of a party spoke albanian and had been trying to foster better relations with the
government in pristina he was shot dead and no one seems to know who did it organized crime is rampant here and there are suspicions there could have been a political motivation the gotten support out in the movie you can see in people how unsafe they fail and they are if you talk about it but what concerns me the most is that many of all of his friends and my friends have left micha pizza and more considering at. this journalist whose office still bears the evidence of intimidation nearly three years ago also believes things are getting worse that. i've been a victim of theft and burglary i've been attacked but those are things that happen to people he every day in savannah beaches met up people species have definitely increased it's because he was so well respected law. on the south side of me tributes the majority cause of our albanian population has been celebrating ten years of independence it's in contrast to the north where the serbian flag flies
kosovo's government ministers accuse their serbian counterparts in belgrade of meddling in the affairs of this city making its dysfunctional. this bridge taking us from the southern side has been renovated it feels new but ten years after independence was announced there's still division here this is a gesture of defiance before we even get into the north building work comes to an end here because of disputes with the kosovar serb local authorities that have caused months of delays because of those prime minister knowledge is there are big difficulties but he says the crime problem is being tackled we are in process of integrating nor of all of law we respect the specification of the community and we integrate the community in this is my approach but that approach is met with cynicism there's no mention here of independence or integration and
drew simmons out zero bits of it's cause of. thirty five refugees are heading for the u.s. after leaving an australian run prison camp on the pacific island nation of nowruz it's part of a resettlement deal between australia's government and the previous us administration refugees are mostly afghan pakistani or ranger unary prison camp as part of australia's hardline policy on blocking refugees from entering by boat. david man is the executive director of refugee legal which provides assistance to refugees in nauru and manus island and australia's offshore processing arrangements he says the resettlement process has been slow. but look the reality is under his bio weapons deal it reminds that you know the u.s. are still fighting refugee and the question really is one of god what how quickly will that happen so that refugees by race that race still have to reveal their
lives in the suffering in the terrible ordeal for over five years that they have endured but the other question is what will israel you do it because ultimately they even if this deal bridged the full number of twelve hundred fifty there will be still be many people left marooned and suffering i mean we are directing our energies and resources together with others to work on. race or ministry happened but it is fundamental because what we know is these refugees cannot stand on and on an assignment you differently what we also know is about the profound suffering in humanity that people have been subject to and we now are at that is destroyed ultimately as dr his legal and moral responsibility to ensure that those refugees are brought to safety and the fact is that australia reminds the are only option for most if not all of those people can be here is marking the first anniversary of the democratic election of president at them up arrow or is election
not the end of twenty two years of author tarion rule but it takes yeah since then the country has been making gains on the international stage earlier this month it rejoined the commonwealth after a five year absence and despite its reputation as a haven for refugees canada has been deporting north korean asylum seekers who arrived there through south korea may two thousand have been sent away since twenty thirteen because the government says they lied on their asylum application forms but activists want the practice to end just on your lack of court. putting a brave face on pending deportation these north koreans came here through south korea which canada considers a safe country but on their refugee applications they said they'd fled to china. eleven years ago kim came here with his wife daughter and son now they have two more children canadian citizens deportation would be catastrophic. on the move.
along and that notice means death to me i came all the way here for a better life and my family is well adjusted to life in canada and if you think we're going to be separated it breaks my heart there was a town on the other three in the. whole of my whole life i live there so i don't have any friends in south korea and all my friends are here. joe family could be broken up too if canada carries out its deportation order two children are canadian born the eldest came with his parents in two thousand and ten the joes admit they lied on their application but say they did it to escape a horrible situation. i feel so desperate. it's our fault all the time what they haven't done anything wrong they have to go through this separation because of us. the north korean refugees say south korea is
definitely not safe for them north korea's spies can track them down they say yet canada's been deporting people like them since two thousand and thirteen those who remain have only begun to fight back. or fallen by the. they. were. or. they were. the korean community in toronto is rallied behind the refugees their lawyer has met canadian officials in what she says is their last chance to stay here an appeal on compassionate grounds to the minister of immigration there's been no response yet internationally we are recognized as a humanitarian and compassionate country accepting refugees from syria and all over the world and why my question is should and the hundred fifty be
