a van they were close to an agreement parliament is scheduled to vote again next week. separatist group has announced its disbanded just days after apologizing to its victims more than eight hundred people were killed during its fifty year campaign for an independent state it declared a cease fire in twenty eleven the reports from san sebastian in the end it came in the rather mundane form of a letter dated the sixteenth of april to various basque organizations a long awaited announcement that the group that waged a violent campaign for independence for five decades was disbanded for good in the what it called its historical cycle. it's fifty years since it's occurring that first victim a secret police chief here in the coastal city of. the announcement that this comes as no surprise to anyone here but many people do hope it marks the beginning
of a new era the name of that police chief was carlos diaz his daughter says people like her are still waiting for a real apology. no matter in principle it's good news that they're not killing more people of course it's great news that there are no more victims but there's absolutely nothing to thank for. it's a formed in the late one nine hundred fifty s. in response to the crackdown on bus culture by spain's dictator francisco franco in one thousand nine hundred seventy three they killed his heir apparent prime minister luis cairo blanco public attitudes hardened and opinion even inside split when the group killed twenty one people in a barcelona supermarket in one thousand nine hundred seven and a series of arrests of better leaders in both spain and france weaken the group significantly. last month which had observed a ceasefire since twenty eleven did apologize to what it called innocent victims of its bombings and assassinations but that wasn't extended to the families of people
in the security services or politicians who were among the more than eight hundred killed by it or over the years for some people in spain's basque region the latest announcement is a missed opportunity and even the last one in terms of society i don't think we're going to notice much change and at a personal level i don't believe in it because there are many missing did people there are many assess the nations that have not been clarified there are many victims that have not received compensation. for their part campaigners for the rights of better prisoners currently in jail across spain and france are hoping they'll soon be able to serve their sentences near their families in the basque region so this is not closure but it has reenergized the debate on where the basque independence movement goes from here nadine barber al-jazeera. of britain's upper house of parliament has voted against a deal with the e.u. which could bring back controls along the irish border owsa lords heard that a so-called hard border would violate the peace deal that helped end decades of
conflict in northern i passed more pressure on prime minister theresa may who's facing a revolt from within her own party that could threaten her government m.p.'s progress in m.p.'s oppose any customs partnership with the e.u. one of the options being considered by may they want the u.k. to have no links to e.u. laws after it leaves the block. we will be losing the customs union we want to ensure that we can have an independent trade policy we also want to ensure that we actually we deliver we are committed to delivering on our commitment of no hard border between north island and ensuring we have as frictionless trade as possible with the european union. well talks in the so-called war cabinet on brics is unlikely to go past wednesday of course but they begin in earnest today on britain's customs relations with the european union after brigid and what position the government decides to take into negotiations may well determine the nature of
britain's exit from the european union why because well if it goes in with a position that would require some sort of border to be set up between northern ireland in the u.k. and the republic of ireland in the e.u. to monitor trade well that is something the e.u. would not accept and that likely would push britain towards a so-called hard bricks and leaving with no trade deal at that economists many economists say would be very damaging to the economy here the prime minister is pushing for a particular arrangement called a customs. partnership in terms of which britain would mirror e.u. regulations at its borders charging tariffs for the e.u. on goods passing through to the e.u. and then giving refunds to import is delivering goods only to the u.k. potentially based on its own trade arrangements that it makes separate to the e.u. after the break that that is something that would not require a border if might therefore be acceptable to the e.u. the problem is that it is not acceptable to a pretty influential bunch of progress of m.p.'s in her own party who say it will deliver nothing but bray breaks it in name only that it is
a customs union in order to all intents and purposes they've demanded she drop it and have tacitly if not directly threatened only to leadership over it all the while time is against the government here they've got to reach a settled position before a big meeting of the e.u. in june at which it will be decided whether to advance negotiations or not towards a final deadline of october by which time they hope to reach a final deal for britain's exit from the european union or no deal tool the u.s. is beefing up the number of lawyers and judges at its border with mexico attorney general jeff sessions says thirty five extra lawyers and eighteen judges will help deal with asylum claims it's in response to the so-called caravan of central american migrants who are waiting to be processed people are not going there caravan or otherwise stampede our border we need legality and integrity in the system people should wait their turn asghar to apply our lawfully
