7:00 pm
this is day that we're news life from a call for action at the u.n. climate summit opens in germany. the conference chair fiji began proceedings delegates are expected to working to cap
7:01 pm
expected global temperatures the temperature increases to one and a half degrees celsius or less. i don't bring you a special report from fiji one of the many pacific islands that have already been hit hard by rising sea levels also on the program. a huge leak of documents shows how big corporations on the supervision of that money in tax havens will find out who's been implicated in the so-called paradise pythons. are looking to weiss in toronto folks be going to the ball in ethiopia but a writer has found his her own publishing company to launch a series of children's books with home grown stories. on the head of a bun just like his video assistant referee system has been replaced and it's accusations that he inappropriately influenced matches.
7:02 pm
i'm phil gayle welcome to the program. the dangerous effects of global warming on pacific islands takes center stage as fiji opens the un conference on climate change in germany it builds on twenty fifteenth's paris climate accord which aims to reduce worldwide greenhouse gas emissions from twenty to twenty these are considered to be a major cause of global warming one hundred and sixty eight nations have ratified the agreement so far and their representatives are in the german city of bam to hammer out the details fiji is chairing a conference like other island nations in the south pacific it has already been hit hard by rising sea levels with more than twenty three thousand people from one hundred ninety seven countries attending fiji's remote location means it can't physically host the conference its objective that is the conference is to reach agreement on how to cap the expected global temperature increases at one and
7:03 pm
a half degrees celsius. instead of taking their seats in class they're taking to the streets these youths staged a demonstration near the climate conference center in bonn. they want the global community to limit greenhouse gas emissions. conference participants say the paris climate agreement of twenty fifteen was a step in the right direction countries have national climate targets now but they have to be solidified. this is an urgent moment and so i expect delegations to come here ready to do their jobs to get the rules set for paris and make progress but also individually to say what they're ready to do more. there's a south pacific and billions in von island nations threatened with submersion amid rising sea levels are getting special attention at the climate conference the targets set out in the paris agreement don't go far enough to prevent the impact of
7:04 pm
a climate disaster. in paris it was clear that our efforts would not go far enough it's also part of this agreement that we keep checking to see what we can do better . it's doubtful whether that will happen in bonn meeting the paris climate targets will require much more work but everyone here is aware that the pacific islands are quickly running out of time. tomorrow and where we find need of it corresponds to christopher spring kater welcome chris so as we just heard the paris climate deal was signed two years ago so what's the ball meeting for. well without bond there is no paris essentially one diplomat described the paris agreement back in twenty fifteen as a flashy new smartphone the problem is there isn't an operating system yet so what's happening over the next two weeks here in bonn is that negotiators are going to flesh out the rules and regulations that will help the world implement the paris
7:05 pm
agreement and that's going to be a tough process a lot of late night negotiating no doubt but essentially it's about writing the rulebook the rules and regulations that will interpret the twenty fifteen paris agreement think of that agreement as a constitution that now needs interpretation focuses of war at twenty seventeen is on track to be one of the hottest years ever has this added any urgency to proceedings. well you know phil there are warnings like this almost every day at least that's what it feels like at the moment that's the most recent one certainly it has added urgency to this conference i think what is also adding urgency to this conference is the fact that the small island nation of fiji the first time a small island nation of that type is presiding over these talks these climate talks and and that is a nation that is particularly vulnerable to climate change it's already had to
7:06 pm
relocate people. from coastal areas due to rising sea levels so it's affected by climate change and the prime minister of that nation of fiji saying that he is definitely going to bring in c. to these talks briefly chris no united much reduced united states delegation there this year does this agreement stand any chance without them. yes it does and that's quite simply because the fact that the u.s. decided to announce that it's going to withdraw from the paris agreement has actually provoked a wave of solidarity with the paris agreement i was talking just a minute ago with the head of the un f.c.c. see the united nations framework convention for climate change which organizes these climate summits patricio espinosa and she told me i asked her is there any sign of other countries using the u.s.
7:07 pm
as an excuse to slide back and she told me not yet because of a spring date thank you you're welcome oh yeah defeat is particularly vulnerable to climate change to w a correspondent bassil hartig has sent this report on how it is dealing with rising sea levels. when in recall goes out fishing this has become a familiar sight. emptiness. you're used to. when i was small i usually went out to sea with my grandfather and father but we didn't have to come as far out as we are now we would only go as far as the closest reefs get a good catch and then go back now it's different we have to go from one reef to the next because there's nothing there the sea is getting warmer well we did that was a. lesson to me. here in the shallows
7:08 pm
off the coast of a newer level fiji's second biggest island life is slowly dying the rising temperature of the ocean is killing the coral reefs and with them all the fish in a changing climate is also taking its toll on. and recalls the village the sea level is rising and. is slowly being swallowed by the ocean. it recalls wife maria grew up here she remembers what it was like when she was a child. there used to be trees walking now when i was little. when we caught crabs here. right here was my uncle's house. one of the next to it was a small shop. and a playground and were all the children would go to play. what i thought
7:09 pm
at high tide this area is now underwater the shoreline has been pushing inland for at least two decades several times a year half the village is flooded by especially high tides the salt water makes the soil and fertile leaving behind only sandy barren land. but also corrode the foundations of the houses eventually the villagers have no choice but to give them up. when we built our homes we thought we could live here for ever we never thought of such a thing as climate change and that it could impact us like this and so quickly now we're seeing what it can do it's really sad for everyone in the village i did it. for the moment the villagers are only moving their houses a bit further back away from the encroaching sea but they're only buying time. over
7:10 pm
a bowl of carver a traditional mildly narcotic drink in the pacific they discuss their future. just a few hundred metres further up in the hills there's enough space to relocate the whole village permanently but most of the villagers for a few years to move to them the land they live on is secret. it's. not in favor of relocating because our forefathers were sent here to look after the foundation of the home of our first paramount chief. it is these stones they cherish they mark the original home of the first chieftain to rule over the whole island and large parts of eastern fiji some two hundred years ago because of tribal wars he himself was forced to leave but he sent the villagers ancestors to keep watch. today his successor lives on
7:11 pm
a different island but the villages obligation passed down through the generations has become part of their identity yet their youth. we were supposed to be relocated . but we said that we cannot move because first we have to consult our current paramount chief. and we asked him but he didn't agree to the relocation why don't us we have to stay here because the duty bestowed on us is of great importance. and yet the rising seas might leave them with no choice but to abandon this sacred place. the villagers are well aware of who is to blame for their plight. it's the fault of the big nations they're the ones polluting the air with their harmful gases it hurts me and makes me angry because we are being affected by
7:12 pm
things that we're not responsible for and that are beyond our control. for the people of. climate change is more than just an abstract threat. for them it's real. and they know simply praying won't help. they need real answers fast before their home is lost forever. now after some of the other stories making news around the world vietnam has been hit by heavy flooding after a powerful typhoon killed at least forty four people left more than a dozen missing more than a hundred thousand homes in the country's south central region have been destroyed or damaged. zimbabwe's a president robert mugabe has fired his vice president i was and that man and god what had been a main contender in the leadership race to replace the president the move opens the way for my god his wife. to succeed him the government had been dismissed for

7:14 pm
now says the paradise papers as they're called have placed a renewed emphasis on fighting tax avoidance they could press forward with plans to make a blacklist of tax havens among the millions of documents evidence that some of the world's richest individuals and businesses are doing whatever they can to hide their cash from the tax man the queen of england is there the rock star bono two american firms apple facebook and nike are also part of it. the massive paradise papers leak is a snapshot of global tax dodging in sixteen million documents most of them out of bermuda big names and big companies are caught once more in a controversy over their finances that's boosting those who want to end tax dodging in the u.k. opposition leader jeremy corbyn suggested the queen should apologize after the leaks showed her state made offshore investments we simply have to challenge the culture that the something clever about avoiding taxation taxation is what gives us

ambulances gives us far attenders gives us safety in our lives and we all have a responsibility to pay for it others have greeted the revelations with a shrug russian officials have pointed to the legality of the transactions in the u.s. commerce secretary wilbur ross said there was nothing improper about his investments in a firm connected to the russian state us president donald trump could even use the leaks to support his plan to slash corporate taxes the reality is more complex however governments like the u.k. and germany say they've been trying to close down loopholes with mixed results the e.u. has meanwhile suggested a collective response but even this could face challenges sometimes were blocked blocked by the fact that the member states considered to be should you go from this or that. and now we're in a different period that's what it called the transparency. it's high time that everybody goes into seeing the reaction to eliminate fraud and to combat that's evasion when it comes to clamping down on tax dodging for now the shame game might
7:16 pm
be the most effective option. well this batch of documents is the sequel to another massive data lake one and a half years ago and while governments have been toppled as a result most of the deals exposed didn't break the law so what exactly is the legacy of the panama papers. the data dump had almost immediate political consequences the prime minister of iceland was forced to resign two days after the story broke files showed sigmund and his wife had ties to an offshore company but good looks and is still in parliament and the papers revealed the new prime minister was also involved with an offshore company. thousands of protesters called for the resignation of long serving pakistani president now russia wreath the paper showed his children owned apartments in london through shell companies the country's supreme court barger re from public office and he resigned. the

panamanian law firm at the center of it all most uk one say is going through rough times authorities jailed its founders on money laundering and corruption charges it was forced to lay off two hundred fifty employees but what about all those back taxes that governments around the world hope to recover it turns out that most of the offshore financial deals uncovered were in fact legal if not ethical and the amount of extra tax revenue so far has been modest according to one study at the end of two thousand and sixteen colombia was the biggest winner with eighty eight million u.s. dollars mexico slovenia and or of why recovered lesser amounts the grand total a disappointing one hundred ten million dollars the original panama papers trove is still being studied by tax investigators around the globe the new leak will give the millions more documents to peruse in the years to come. we spoke to members of
7:18 pm
the european parliament spending god who's been pressing to close tax loopholes putting it to him that john money is partly to blame for stolen new e.u. laws designed to clamp down on tax avoidance. well that's pretty accurate because when it came to obligations for transnational companies it was germany which keeps blocking the proposal of the european commission that big companies have to publish where they pay taxes and where they earn their profits so i expect the german government now to change course and as you know german greenside in prep or a tory talks for coalition and i also expect that this issue is put on the table of the negotiations. and we'll of course be following all the developments on the days to come now back over here thanks so much don in liberia supreme court has

patience was over speaking in japan on the first leg of his twelve day tour of asia mr trump also pushed his host host to more american military equipment to protect itself against north korean attacks despite his comments mr trump said that he would be open to talks with north korea's leader kim jong un. going for the gut president trump's hawkish stance on north korea got personal when he met with japanese families of those abducted by the nuclear armed regime he's not the first president to do so but with tensions the highest in years the meeting added emotional firepower to trump's tough talk emphasizing the u.s. is close and longstanding relationship with japan he called north korea's ballistic missile launches over japan outrageous the era of strategic patience is over. some people said that my rhetoric is very strong but look what's happened with very weak rhetoric over the last twenty five years
7:36 pm
look where we are right now. prime minister shinzo abbay said his government stands one hundred percent together on the issue agreeing with trump that all options are on the table. not a more. no one wants a conflict neither myself nor president trump that's not a new about you north korea continues challenging the international order under provocation it looks like the international community needs to apply pressure to north korea to change their policy i mean you know it'll cut. the prospect of armed conflict took on an economic dimension during the visit trump called for free and equal access for american exports to japan's market his answer to north korean missiles is japan buying more defense hardware from the united states he will shoot him out of the sky when he completes the purchase of lots of additional military equipment from the united states he will easily shoot them out of the sky from

japan trump heads to south korea which has also long been north korea's crosshairs in belgium side kathmandu the colors proved a model for other former ministers have been released from custody and have to stay in belgium and attend court sessions within two weeks first of all on the other four had to turn themselves into police on sunday to face possible extradition to spain prosecutors there file charges against them for their roles in last month's independence referendum which the spanish government says was illegal. meanwhile belgium's interior minister is accusing the european union of double standards in its approach to catalan independence hall said the e.u. had remained silent about madrid's crackdown on catalan separatists despite taking legal action against right wing governments in poland and hungary for defying democratic norms t.w. scattering the martens put those ideas to the former president of the european
7:38 pm
council herman van rompuy. as former as you can union can brussels keep that defensive line because the european union is respecting the rule of law. in spain the referendum must consider the supreme court as illegal. the unilateral declaration of independence was considered by the supreme court supreme court as illegal and we have to respect let's say not only the independence of spain the depends of the additional in spain we have to respect the rule of law as long as the rule of law is not violated the european union has no role to play and you always have to be very cautious and i'm speaking no as a belgian on interfering in domestic politics we had a crisis or five hundred forty one days it was
7:39 pm
a major crisis it was about the future of the country. we solved the problem after one year and a half without any mediation without any intervention of the european union we never asked it and it was never suggested but what would be wrong for a strong european union as a broker showing to the european citizens its capacity as a crisis manager. it needs always to or to tango if a country is not asking for support or for mediation you cannot impose it it has to be in consensus with the member states and as far as i know there is no request there is no demand but catalonia was calling for a mediation in this case and the european commission president juncker for example he wants his commission to be
7:40 pm
a political one is the european union falding short finally just referring all the time to the rule of law we are working with member states and as far as i know the rule of law is respected in spain and just referring to decisions of the supreme court that's importing it or not even political decisions the political decision was to in some way to suspend autonomy of catalonia after a unilateral declaration of independence but major decisions taken it were judiciary decisions and we have to respect the separation of powers so it is not because a region is asking that the european union has to intervene we are working we are dealing with the member states. sas clear better now there's no

7:51 pm
a designer well jill centers always march to her own beat in the fashion world and she sums it up best when she says that people who wear jewels and there aren't fashionable they are modern and that's actually the reason that she got into making clothes in the late sixty's she was an editor at a fashion magazine and she didn't like what she was seeing she didn't think that the clothes represented independent strong successful modern women and so she opened her own fashion house using her mother's sewing machine by the way so very modest beginnings and she made clothes for business women and women c e o's a look that was at least a decade ahead of its time to brand really big in the eighty's and ninety's and the clothes themselves are actually very german in the sense that they're not flashy they're not ornamental it's really about a high level of craftsmanship so very much less is more you could say that fortunately for people who want to go to the new exhibition in frankfurt there is
7:52 pm
more it is a huge exhibition it has videos it has clothes it has product design garden design even though sander the herself spent a year and a half helping to craft the exhibition it's called presence which means present tense and we've got a closer look. presents gives an insight into. digital santas inspiration and the world that she created. under the new jewels and is a revolutionary because she once again questioned things fundamentally. the haka. like no other the zonda name stands for elegance and simplicity with the personality of the wearer is allowed to be more present than the clothes on her trademark a high quality fabrics a feminine silhouette and clearly defined lines

a symbol of modernity and the empowerment of the individual a fiat everything has then i think it was very important to her personally as well once she admitted that she was making fashion primarily for herself because she wanted to appear as a business woman or an entrepreneur who could be taken seriously she didn't want to be pushed into playing her gender role as a woman she wanted her character her personality her will to come across. sandra rejected the idea of a retrospective exhibition as a result there's no chronological order for the pieces. has been recreated mood boards the starting point for the collections examples of patents materials and fabrics. the museum building itself designed by american architect richard maya suits sunders concept perfectly she's organized the rooms according to her design
7:54 pm
principle less is more. works are timeless but what was jewels and a trying to achieve in the course of her career. was trying to find the spirit of her time designed geist but i think she influenced that spirit in turn. runs until main six twenty in frankfurt. now you said that approach is very german that she sees over the german designers that make a close the the b.m.w. is all the must say these are the fashion world they're definitely not the lamborghinis i mean if you take a closer look at really it's very much about a quieter vision of luxury and she herself has said that she was very much inspired by the bauhaus that was a school of german designers in the early twentieth century who really pared things down they did architecture they did teacups they did everything but it was about
7:55 pm
functionality it was about simplicity of design and there's also something about her her design the very northern european protestant it's not obviously and it's not flashy particularly but if you look closely you can see that there's a lot of wealth there and speaking of wealth till center is actually no longer the designer or the owner of the jil sander brand she sold it years ago she does still have a relationship with the fashion house she's gone back occasionally to work there but in the last year she's she's done different things she's been designing actually for unique low budget japanese brand a much more democratic brand she herself said she was for the first time in her life no one said but no one can afford it about this very different experience for her and less is even less is even. more but if you do if you her name will always always be connected with luxury even if she's not at the brand until sandor more the website you go more on the website the dot com slash culture they feed live it's we thank you thanks so. just hundred miles of our top story at this hour
