12:18 pm
being given until monday to provide more details of its plan to deport more than forty thousand african refugees the supreme court set the deadline after suspending the program at a hearing earlier this month how he foresaw reports of west jerusalem. among the inmates of saharan imprisoned deep in israel's southern negev desert are dozens of eritrean and sudanese men who have in the narrowest sense chosen to be their stead of deportation to a third country known to be either uganda or wondered what are her son says the inmates have made the right choice he accepted a deal to leave israel for uganda in twenty fourteen but instead found himself delivered to sudan the country he'd fled now he's made it to uganda away studying law but says direct deportees from israel have their documents taken at the airport leaving them unprotected no one is willing to fight or die for this because rights

in israel there's at least there's activists and there's a lot of resistance. israel's government is trying to remove forty thousand africans mostly sudanese and eritrean who entered from egypt before a border fence was completed four years ago the first phase of the detention or deportation policy targets single men but for now it's been frozen pending a decision by israel supreme court on monday the train was running very quickly we at least stopped at seagull coco v.v. is one of those behind the legal petition against the policy she doubts the government has a defensible deal with rwanda to show the court and hopes the freeze will continue but i think it's going to be very hard for the supreme court now to turn this around and say without an agreement without seeing an agreement this can go on israel's prime minister though is determined to press ahead last week he said unrestricted african migration would be more dangerous than terrorism is. long argued that israel has the right to expel people he calls illegal infiltrators
12:20 pm
where somebody is granted asylum status he can be expelled but not to the country where he cannot be returned in this case but if another country is willing to accept him it's perfectly legal under international law. it's an argument that holds little weight protests as good on who fled forced service in the eritrean army but how does asylum claim rejected in israel he says neither wonder nor uganda offers the safe haven that should be his right under international law let's though i did what i did to stay in a prison to stay in a prison i prefer to stay in a body that instead of risk of death. i don't give up and so i don't lose hope i don't give up in the short term such hopes depend on the next decision made by israel supremes court but more broadly they rely on the outcome of what's been a vociferously national debate about whether african refugees now deserve the same kind of sanctuary in israel as jews fleeing europe in the twentieth century a recent poll suggested two thirds of jewish israelis supported the government line

speaker of the the parliament that there should not be violence they want to keep this a calm and a peaceful protest but it depends very much on the appearance of colors bustamante in the german court will he be remanded in custody and will he be released on bail to fight the extradition process what happens in that court with very much affect the mood on the streets here in barcelona and across the whole of catalonia so they're saying essentially that the government is running. an oppressive repressive and revengeful campaign against the separatist leaders and they're simply trying to decapitate the democratic process here in catalonia. filmstar who says she had to with u.s. president donald trump in two thousand and six says she was threatened with physical violence after she first tried to go public with the story stormy daniels
