8:10 pm
evacuation orders you do follow if your own peril so knowing how many will be in those both dorm it's hard to determine because we don't know how many people actually stayed to try and ride this thing out what we do know is that both teams that are faced in ready to move in can't do that until more and food vout and then they take them both in high water vehicles and through those areas hardest hit do what they can to help those who are right now dealing with these intense conditions jake we'll leave it there thank you very much. human susie rebels say fifteen people have been killed in saudi emraan he led coalition airstrikes in the port city of data lighting has escalated recently as the coalition tries to take the data from the rebels under simmons has more now from. the rebels say that at least fifteen civilians were killed and twenty others injured in an attack on cuba sixteen that's the main road between santa and the data the data is under attack by

8:21 pm
it's unprecedented in the history of the european parliament to vote to polish a member state. flouting rules on the look or see civil rights and corruption the government's attacks on courts and media is seen as a threat so what's next for hungary and indeed europe this isn't says story.
8:22 pm
hello and welcome to the program i'm adopted hamid for the first time ever do european parliament has voted to sanction a member state hungary's accused of eroding the principles of democracy and civil rights the allegations are so serious it triggered a vote on article seven of the e.u. treaty which means hungary it could be stripped of its voting rights viktor orban government says it will challenge a decision that has more from sizable. there was applause as members of the european parliament voted to punish hungry for breaching values for the first time they agreed to move towards article seven a procedure that could lead to put a past losing its voting rights it was nice dodge lawmakers report on hungary then led to the decision we've seen democrat. since two thousand and ten. press freedom. is not guaranteed. in the
8:23 pm
academic freedom. is falling down the vote is unlikely to surprise hungary's far right anti immigration prime minister he and the e.u. have clashed repeatedly over the years. victor brand has accused the european parliament of trying to blackmail him to change his ways and in budapest his foreign minister has dismissed the vote saying hungary is being unfairly targeted who like you for your own parliament today should appear in part of a decision was nothing else but pet revenge of pro immigration politicians against hungary outside put a press parliament anti government campaigners protested. all by mean there are open talks about everything on tuesday but not the reality here in hungary everything is always about migration it's to full heard gary ns and they swallow it by going through their own fears is true it's not
8:24 pm
a distortion the government has been trying to the last step by step i think because they want to hold on to power. the e.u. will issue hungry with a formal warning before deciding whether to strip it of its voting rights such a move would damage hungary's international reputation but this supporter says it could actually bolster leadership in the long term mr obama be a winner of this procedure because he can establish a new platform video in the european peoples but the can make new alliances in europe and through that it can increase its influence on the european domestic politics for now pro european politicians are celebrating but their victory may be short lived the vote has highlighted the growing divisions in the e.u. that threaten the bloke's very existence and its future natasha butler al-jazeera stroudsburg france. ok so let's
8:25 pm
introduce our panel in brussels peter klepper head of the brussels office for the think that open europe in berlin martin michel ski director of public affairs at the polish based open dialogue foundation and in revenue in france but is all jellicoe the co-founder of. group of geopolitical studies welcome to you all but please let me start with you when when the e.u. says that there was a serious breach of european values what does it mean exactly. but there are two to be sure it's quite hard to interpret it's it's a very wide concept the e.u. law used to sign and an article in the second article of the treaty of lisbon and they cover a wide ranch of values which are human dignity the human rights the rule of law and when you look at the order it was written by this dodge lawmaker you there was interview you can see that there are actually quite
8:26 pm
a bunch of those values that have been breached at one point or another by the hungry in government and so but the main problem being that those that are using their white and white on this find it's also pretty hard to know exactly pinpoint where the issues are so it's mostly a question i think of political willingness rather than strictly like a strategic issue approach ok so martin on the contrary viktor orban says that actually he is the offending european values and i'm going to quote him here he says that this is the first case in the history of europe where a community can then it's own border guards so what what does he mean by that of course i'm looking from the polish perspective and yet to really think how you define european values there are four different perfect there are been there are different for that change but if you look at the treaty. through upload democracy.
8:27 pm
human rights that are being violated violated by those states by hungary by by poland of course far from the rubble reflected from the youth of the perspective they are in violation of what we all agreed on and of course poland was also had by article seven but this time it was a european commission who voted for that now and let me just bring in peter. you know all this obviously at the core of it is the e.u. . it's something that was created several decades ago do you think brussels has also maybe have to change a bit adapted it. didn't use the reality in europe. well if you look at the criticism on hungry i think you can agree with a lot that is being criticised in danger in the rule of law corruption with you
8:28 pm
fronts the fact that the government tried to politicize the process to point to judges so all of this is pretty justified but it's these are problems that you have in many other member states for example in romania there has been there have been mass protests against corruption in spain the treatment of the catalan movement think there you can also point at some some problems and put the zation of should issue appointment is i think in many countries a problem so the question is is the european union really the right forum to deal with that and frankly i have my doubts i think the core business of the e.u. is to scrap barriers to trade to open up treat from the moment it starts meddling in these more sensitive issues it always opens the door for criticism that it is it
8:29 pm
is using two different standards there are other international organizations as for example the council of europe that is based in straws burke that for decades now has been criticizing all countries for many of the problems that exists in hungary. ok. do you agree or what's your reaction to what was just said that maybe the european union has double standards to. i mean i could have done the fact that there is some sort of double standard in the sense that no measure of this sort i think it would have been more complicated for spain or italy or france to be. condemned like this by the e.u. parliament however. i do think that given the
8:30 pm
number of features from the home going government this particular act of particular activation of article seven was actually made sense and more than that i do think that the you should not only be concerned with the opening of free trade but also with defending its core values and if i might say so you pointed that. you has has existed for many decades now it is true and in this maybe you were so surprised by the fact that article seven was used only for the first time right now because it should have been used many times before the fact is that therefore ban has been in power for many years right now and that he's been slowly building his own doctrine his own approach not only to hungary the also to europe which you can see it completely contradicts the core values on which the has been found
8:31 pm
equivalents which are defined or at least identified in article two and i think it was about time that you or at least those who believe in. the liberal construction of european union did something about it the question is now what are going to be that the political consequences of such a rash action because no one is actually used to the european parliament acting so swiftly and actually making such a strong statement why it's a swiftly but their pay and parliament position is that it has actually so. of discussed with hungry several times. their concerns and that nothing happened some actually say that the and i'm putting that question to peter some actually say that the european union let it go for so long to probably with hungry thinking that by keeping viktor orban within the fold they could influence him more
8:32 pm
. i think it's a wise decision not to rush into action here and actually article seven or the whole procedure is sort of designed to encourage that is so. it's possible for any country to ultimately veto any sanctions poland has already said that it will and also politically it looks like many governments or quite wary to go to go there ok and. martin of course viktor orban and i think the case is more or less similar in poland the government there also say that it has nothing to do with sibylla civil liberties or core values it has to do with being punished for the anti migration policies of hungry. but there is also a fear i think that viktor orban talked about it during his electoral campaign
8:33 pm
about spreading this kind of in liberal democracies around europe which would basically could have a huge impact on the european union wouldn't it. i think that just on their very some point the way that they're trying to frame it or. so then you have the authoritarian. dictator one of these in europe they want to say that they are actually. giving back their position of their country that they should be all big within the e.u. remember all and there's a very proud european country you know seventy five percent. all these people who are pro european so they're walking a very thin line and they're saying that actually europe of course shouldn't be centralized and shouldn't be governed from brussels from or from berlin but they're saying that this actually the true europe is with poland holding a strong position while telling the people.
