between rich and poor years. one in equal societies. divide starting november fifteenth on g.w. . this is deja vu news live from berlin and wake up to the danger that's a message from the ousted catalan leader to the international community as a judge prepares to issue a warrant for his arrest thousands of pro separatist catalans have taken to the streets to protest against the way madrid is handling the crisis including the
5:01 pm
jailing of their democratically elected representatives. also coming up a separatist leader in nigeria disappears without a trace supporters of nom de khan who says he has not been seen since the military raided his home in september members of his family now fear the worst. plus working out the nuts and bolts of climate change more than twenty thousand delegates are gathering in bomb to figure out how to make the paris climate accord work. i'm sumi so much going to thank you for joining us dismiss catalan leader the law says he will fight extradition from belgium is a judge in spain issues a warrant for his arrest as is expected later today the judge jailed nine members of the dismissed catalan government yesterday one has since been released first of
5:02 pm
all is keen to internationalize the issue but so far the e.u. says it's a domestic matter the crisis is also dividing opinion on the streets of barcelona. in catalonia one story continues to dominate and on the ground the jailing of its former leaders and an arrest warrant for it to abscond the president is splitting opinion. when i start another it's a joke from someone who has fled the conflict. as a matter of democracy and no longer just a matter of independence but personally i think it's bad news for a government to have political prisoners and it can affect those of us who are in favor of independence. for catalonia as ousted leadership the route to independence has taken them here a jail awaiting the next stage of their inquisition over charges of rebellion. but
5:03 pm
i just i mean they are here know and they are fine but they are worried about their families in catalonia as well as in spain they are determined to move forward and hope for our support from the outside. but i was there most of them were. not among those jailed is this man catalans former president holed up in belgium that is. it is a grave attack on democracy. imprisoning political leaders who have ample citizen support is an act that violates the basic principle of democracy. carlos bustamante ever returns to face the music he will hope it sounds like this. the speaker of the catalan parliament arriving to work today after appearing in the supreme court she has another week to prepare her defense. well let's bring in our correspondents starlet shall some pill is in barcelona and
5:04 pm
barbara vessel is in brussels good to see you both charlotte let's start with you what is the situation facing the aide jailed members of the cattle in parliament. well those eight face an extremely heavy sentence if it doesn't go their way rebellion alone one of the charges leveled against them carries thirty years in jail but this person could take years it's long and protracted the big surprise in fact is that they've been jailed so quickly a lot of people were expecting to see them out on bail like one of their former colleagues who is today a free man the other a key former ministers in colors push months government to remain behind bars for the foreseeable future you did mention there that one of these lawmakers was released on bail what can you tell us about his case. yeah he's a very interesting figure he's the former business minister and he was being dealt
5:05 pm
with differently by the judges believed because he didn't take part in the independence vote last friday he quit the government before that vote took place so he's now been released on bail he's had to pay fifty thousand years now what's so interesting about him is that he said that he wants to run. for push wants party in the election on december twenty first whether or not this is part of a a well crafted plan and that the pro independence leaders wanted to have somebody remaining who is not behind bars we're not yet sure but we know that he certainly divides opinion here in catalonia there are a lot of people who were very angry with him for the first not taking part in the vote and secondly not being among those who are essentially facing the music today some people have gone so far as to call him a traitor and in the spanish media he's being described as the lonely man you know the one that's on his own while everyone else is facing these very serious charges
5:06 pm
ok barbara let's come to you in brussels now carlos bustamante will very likely issue a legal objection to any arrest warrant that is issued what would happen then what kind of legal protections can he expect if any. there is a set process for cases like these if we remember for instance the case of julian is solved in great britain some years ago it was very similar he fought his extradition to sweden for years in in front of british courts and now we're going to see something like this in belgium puts mond can go through the two instances off the belgian courts to defend himself against the extradition extradition demand that is by the way has not yet arrived on belgium soil it seems and he will cite to the infraction off his basic rights mainly that's what his lawyer says and that's what he himself indicated so he has some months to go and in order to suit if not
5:07 pm
to go to spain also his lawyer has suggested that the spanish authorities could talk to him on videoconference however given the severity off the charges as mentioned by childhood that is very unlikely they're going to do that so they will insist off his extradition bot it will take some time barbara belgium is a difficult case on its hands here what is the government there saying about the situation. the government would rather he would sort of dissolve into thin air particularly the villone and pardon the french speaking part of the government here in belgium because they have had secession problems in the past of course and these in the main coalition party party which is the flame mission national party here has had strong ideas about sort of splitting off from belgium and sort of really tearing the country into that has quieted down that now in government they're
5:08 pm
behaving somewhat more responsibly however some of their ministers have already spoken up in defense of cars pushed a month and said it was all this was against democracy and people shouldn't be put in jail for voicing ideas like that and so john's michel did the belgian prime minister really has big problem on his hands he tries to keep the ball really low he has shot up during the last days he's not talking anymore however everybody fears that the whole thing dragging on for months and months in front of belgium court belgian courts could turn into a sort of fragmentation grenade for the politically fragile situation in belgium idea of these barbara vessel for us in brussels and a charlotte shells impel in barcelona thank you both and ben has more about the a financial implications of all of these events in catalonia as you know it's the worst institutional crisis to hit spain in decades the central bank says the protracted political conflict could damage the economy especially colonias the
5:09 pm
uncertainty has seen over a thousand companies relocate their headquarters already to other parts of the country and last month catalonia led the nation's seventeen autonomous regions in job losses. the demonstrators in front of the catalonia parliament were angry and things look set to get worse for businesses before they get better there is talk of a general strike in the coming days german business owners here are nervous. things have settled down a little which is a positive development for our businesses but we don't know how long it'll last the arrests are of course a disturbing factor we'll have to wait and see how the population reacts. hamas is keeping a close eye on things the head of a company that produces plastic products is also angry about the detention of catalonia and lawmakers even though he's happy that the situation is calmer at the moment when i was in the. business people here have had to cope with the insecurities that the situation we've gone through some tough moments. it looks
5:10 pm
a little quieter now but the unrest could continue we can't rule that out. the desire for independence that's gripped millions of company lines is also supported by thousands of business owners but despite broad support for the idea they aren't happy with how the region's government has gone about it. business people feel a little disoriented at the moment when it comes to independence because in the last few years we were expected to trust separatist politicians that wanted to set up state authorities and entities. so we gave them that trust. but now what we're seeing is that they didn't set up any authorities an entity. the biggest company in catalonia and its leaders say the carmaker just wants to
5:11 pm
build vehicles there defending their right to remain out of the fray in the face of new government measures works council head carneiro this firm on that. pressure from the royal family ministries politicians it needs to come from them that's what they're paid for they should let us build cars in peace that's the thing that we do well. both carneiro and ramos have high hopes. with the elections on december twenty first the businessman hopes that spain's federal government will be in a more compromising mood he hopes for more concessions even if independence is off the table you see them but i guess you know what's important is that they help push madrid to give us catalans more self-government. which they're still not that's a wish she doesn't believe is likely to be granted. catalonia as moves for independence are being watched by separatist movements in
5:12 pm
many parts of the world has for me that's right ben nigeria is just one example a group there called the indigenous people of biafra is calling for an independent state in the south east of the country now it is an old demand that sparked a bloody civil war fifty years ago our reporter visited the home of the independence movement leader nandi cano who went missing in september his disappearance has fueled fears of new violence this is a statue of nom de kanu with its arms chopped off the real number two has disappeared. i witnesses say security forces stormed his house in southeastern nigeria in september he has not been seen since the army says he fled but this man believes he was killed would change it would be the case remember the separatist be the indigenous people of be opera he has been on guard at his leader cells since that was raided and conduit himself disappeared so from the do that
5:13 pm
then just over idea that we're there for the shooting. so most of us were somewhere like merriment. some of the separatists from what they believe was a military operation. says that twenty people were killed after the brother of the missing separatist leader. after many unsuccessful attempts to protect him he agreed to meet us he says the actions of the nigerian military has made to the i.p.o. be even more determined to carry on. asking for a friend i'm is not asking for. one two or three people on doing to open achieve that is through referendum. and that's what my little everybody believes in today the government has rejected the separatists it's it says an independence referendum would be unconstitutional and dangerous. the information minister says all the
5:14 pm
governors in the region the same opinion they have course also get is transmitted to the people and they are not going into the encouraging any kind of hide to titian that leads to the loss of life for fear of an escalating conflict is growing among the population nigerians in the south east of the country have long felt sidelined and neglected but many do not sympathize with the radical approach of the be offering separatists this increasingly harsh exchange of words on both sides of the conflict some supporters of an independent speak about the destruction of nigeria the government on the other side the separatist movement a terrorist organization most observers doubt that in the current political climate a peaceful referendum which be possible now to some other stories making news around the world u.s. president donald trump has left washington ahead of his first official tour of asia the president and first lady will first stop in hawaii before heading to japan has
5:15 pm
extended his already lengthy trip until november fourteenth to attend the east asia summit tensions over north korea are expected to dominate the trip. the maltese journalist who was killed in an apparent assassination last month has been laid to rest close to her hometown daphne khurana go leafy had died in a car bombing maltese prime minister said the family had denied his request to attend the funeral qur'an and there was a fierce critic of the prime minister has declared a national day of mourning. syrian state media say government troops have cleared so-called islamic state from the eastern city of. the city was the last major stronghold of the militants in syria there hours or it had been divided between government backed troops and islamic state for nearly three years. ok more business with ben now and anyone with apple shares ben they will be celebrating today oh you got that right the tech giant stocks surged to another new eye today
5:16 pm
it coincides with the release of its latest i phone the ten which is expected to break sales records that and bump of profits last quarter now put the american companies market cap at almost nine hundred billion dollars. the images are practically identical all over the world there's a countdown customers burst in when the doors finally open like here in tokyo they put down a pile of money and leave like this student euphoric. i think i want to go home and get some rest and then enjoy the phone. the latest i phone has an edge to edge display and uses facial recognition technology. but otherwise it doesn't seem to be the huge technological leap forward that apple claims even so it costs around a thousand dollars in the u.s. and up to half again as much in japan china or europe that makes even the biggest
5:17 pm
apple fans think you know you've got samsung sewing it's the same thing and about forty to fifty percent less than one half was charging apple has a good marketing and a good brain and that's mainly what we're paying for everyone's paying for the green and everybody knows. how long can apple keep it up competition is growing and samsung isn't the only challenger chinese manufacturers like show me and huawei also want a slice of the pie. with a sustained success of the i phone has made the most valuable company in the world it sold only four million devices in the quarter ending september thirtieth considering the eye for an aid to only been available for a week back then in the i phone ten wasn't yet available at all that is a staggering number and he's another staggering figure for you the i phone has helped apple amass a market value of eight hundred seventy three billion us dollars
5:18 pm
that more than the combined worth of these seven german companies combined including s a p zeman is b a s f n v w. well let's see what billy has to say about that he's a financial man in frankfurt only is that justifiable we're talking about a price tag of almost a trillion dollars. that's right and when you compared to the market value of those prestigious german companies which we have many many factories around the world many of them and whose software we use and business computers and the applications there it seems unfathomable but the customers are paying for this and through buying these millions of i phones are creating billions of profit and the share price is directly related to the profit and when you put the two in relation to one another the share price and the profit that apple incurs it seems almost reasonable what the company is worth because that number is high the price earnings ratio but
5:19 pm
not overly high many high tech giants actually have higher numbers so apple as incredible as it sounds seems to be worth what it's worth at the moment what about its chinese rivals though should apple be losing sleep over them. i think they probably are and they're working very very hard to create new products the next time around that have the same or better technology than the chinese competitors in order not to get overtaken by them but of them but remember apple has that brand we just heard the one guy say that we're buying the brand yes you are and that's apple's ingenious business model they connect all the dots which the competitors somehow can't seem to do create to create a lifestyle to make people buy these phones at these very very expensive prices buying the most valuable brand in the world will be bought in frankfurt for us thank you. and i'll have a full fifteen minutes of business for you next hour so you may thank you ben our
5:20 pm
delegates have been gathering in the german city of bonn for next week's un climate conference it will be the first time the meeting has taken place since donald trump said he was pulling the u.s. out of paris climate accord trump has described climate change as a hoax but some countries are already being forced to take urgent action in response to global warming the polar ice caps are melting drought and storms are becoming more common across the globe a recent study found that the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has never risen as fast as it did last year one place that's been hit especially hard by rising sea levels is fiji in the south pacific. now for the first time fiji will be chairing the un climate conference prime minister frank bainimarama will be leading the negotiations environmentalist say fiji is a warning for the world this isn't bizarreness but fiji has been especially hard
5:21 pm
hit by climate change because of rising sea levels fiji was the first place in the world where an entire village had to be relocated because of climate change. the bonn meeting aims to flesh out the terms of the twenty fifteen paris climate agreement almost all countries have signed the accord only the u.s. has announced it is pulling out the deal requires that temperatures do not climb by more than two degrees it requires all countries to set their own climate goals it paves the way for billions in aid especially for poor countries but one will be a working conference without big decisions like those made in paris. that's true it's a nice at first it sounds pretty unspectacular but what we agreed on in paris in december two thousand and fifteen is like a new worldwide law and something like that needs rules of interpretation. but donald trump stated intention to withdraw from the paris accord has cast
5:22 pm
a shadow over these talks so far other countries do not share his view. of the three major storms in the caribbean combined with the u.s. backing out of the paris agreement have increased the feeling of unity among the other countries. many feel it is now time to take action the results of climate change are becoming more and more dramatic and not only in fiji. for more next week's conference let's talk to sonia dean from environment hi sonia as we said it's been five months since the trump administration announced the u.s. is pulling out of the paris climate accord how has that affected the international community's efforts to fight climate change well initially there was substantial concern over the motivation for other countries but that's quickly turned into increased determination for the rest of the world to continue to move forward on climate protection given that these affects are already being felt this year for
5:23 pm
example in the form of extreme weather that has rocked the globe but experts also point out than order to prevent this two degree celsius temperature rise we have just about ten year window to not only peak greenhouse gas gas emissions but actually complete an entire transition to low or no carbon economies emission reduction commitments as they are are taking us to about three degrees so there is a sense of urgency around this issue and for some regions of the world more than for others so it's time for action but as we heard in that report this is not going to be a second paris conference what can participants actually decide here. you know it's no cop twenty one in paris it's a working conference meeting the delegates are coming together to hash out a rulebook on implementing the paris agreement and there are some really important aspects to this such as transparency and accountability so how can we be sure that countries are living up to their commitments and these commitments are measurable
5:24 pm
and comparable that we're talking oranges and oranges and not oranges and apples another big component of this conference is how businesses and local governments can already begin translating emission reductions into the real world and in fact there's a lot of potential there for quicker cuts and for of course increasing the ambition to make sure we don't overshoot two degrees so you would be talking about the big emitters the large countries but fiji as we heard in a report is one of the countries most affected by rising sea levels what are small countries expecting from the summit well yeah the literal existence of fiji is threatened by rising sea levels due to human caused climate change which is one reason that fiji was selected to hold the presidency of this conference and part of the thinking behind that is to drive home the urgency of this issue i mentioned the two degree limit how we're heading for three degrees but these small island states for example need a lower limit of one point five degrees to not have their countries drowned in the
5:25 pm
sea here at the conference there is a broad i wouldn't canoe as part of the exhibits and it was part of one of the main messages of the fijian presidency is that we're all in one boat climate change doesn't know any borders so we've got to get paddling red sonja will delegates gathering in bonn for the conference that will take place this coming week so nadine from environment thank you very much. every bit of sports in german soccer bursa dortmund host byron munich in the biggest clash of the weekend the hosts are in second place and trailed by in munich by just three points but they've been in poor form recently mandan managing to take just one point in the last three games on the other hand byron have a one hundred percent record since your pint this took over last month all things considered you could forgive dortmund fans for feeling a little nervous out of the game we had the streets to find out what they think has gone wrong in recent weeks. dortmund might be second in the table but their
5:26 pm
fans are not happy. we started well with the new coach but now the rot is setting around sounds as if you played a lot of bad games there have been a few good ones too but almost as many bad games and she didn't trust nobody you know if you are the focus of their criticism is coach pater bosh is attacking system his aggressive style won plaudits early in the season but the doubters are growing louder. after all these poor games i think the system is too easy to work out so on is we've got a. good footballing team suneet numbers in midfield and we don't have that what a four three three we just play long balls forward it's too easy for the opposing defense it's like watching a pub team. was put up by now they face germany's toughest challenge it's a top of the table clash that will put dortmund's tactics to the test. expect every
5:27 pm
player to give all of going one hundred ten percent and that has to be enough to be even buying a home. vince if it's not enough then my god at least you've given everything the fans recognise that effort it's all that counts. there are eighty one thousand people in the stadium and i'm optimistic that they'll show their fighting spirit. on saturday we'll find out whether that fighting spirit is enough to beat the champions. and we just have time for a minder of our top story at this hour there have been protests in barcelona after ministers in that opposed to catalan government were jailed by a judge the same judge is also expected to issue an international arrest warrant for the catalan leader carlos bustamante with in brussels. you're watching news don't forget you can head to our website dot com for. all the latest news and information around the clock they would.
