10:04 am
power of mugabe's wife grace that then developed into a popular revolt i knew there will be named within forty eight hours but for now zimbabweans are enjoying what marks the beginning of a new era in their country. earlier i spoke with our correspondent in harare christine milne while i put a tour of the zimbabweans must be glad to see this crisis ending peacefully yet terry. that was one of the things that this pro says that the fact that it was very peaceful life huntin huge moment in the capital in the midst of what was the military who is same city the these soldiers who are making peace and order prevailed with friendly suits to the citizens this is something that the ordinary man in the street is not used to there see a full all feel for he's off soldiers off police but the peacefulness with which
10:05 am
this happened is what really got to the people of zimbabwe these are very feel cool people the reason why zimbabweans often don't take out to the streets is in fear of that is that they will be violence and so for this to happen in such a peaceful way it really means a lawsuit out of people here. i also asked christine how the opposition in zimbabwe feel about mugabe's probable successor emerson. who was mugabe's lifelong comrade and deputy until he was sacked earlier this month. so that's what the opposition is calling for at this point in time is the constitutional for the country to be upheld now what that dictates is that amazon not god should step in a take over got the full the remaining to off use to that comes to next year and the country is due to hold a general election so the opposition they say what he needs to do is only take over for that time it will remain as well
10:06 am
a five year long transitional government the opposition opposes that but you're quite right emma said not what is a problematic pick at this it's been pulled out his right hand man for a very long time force that unfortunately if you if we take a look into he's cost a problem actually report particularly when it comes to human rights abuses and violations he has been linked to various horrible incidents in this country most recently the election violence of two thousand and seven two thousand and eight and further back the killing of thousands of people in the south of this country political violence so the opposition is swearing off this character like many other people are in this country to hear what will happen to robert mugabe and his wife grace. that's the big question we we don't really have the details of the agreement that was reached with president will got the but we do understand that it's most likely they have the
10:07 am
bronx immunity they are unlikely to face any prior to this accused and i think the big question is really what they will choose to stay in zimbabwe only that they will take force to live in it's out these are people who have a quiet property and well they have properties all over the globe city so it would be possibly a tough choice to decide where to live out the rest of the years it's not known where that will stay in how to hide it but if they do choose so most nike and a very comfortable conditions without the prospect of eighty prosecution saying thank you did obvious christine while they're reporting from the zimbabwean capital harare now to some other stories making news around the world today lebanese prime minister saad hariri is back in the country almost three weeks after announcing his schalke resignation while he was in saudi arabia he's attending

10:10 am
regarding the crimes committed in extremis labor so this is a very highly important event here at the i.c.c. why today and probably right now the chances already entered the courtroom in order to read the sentence but it will take around one hour and a half before we now how the verdict will be beyond that i talked with the families of the victims so this is very important for them this very day to day because justice is the only compensation and reparation they can expect in their lives regarding fairbairn it's so this is very important and i talked with them and eyes they said they are very glad that there is royals attention today here at the i.c.c. right but they doubt that really the verdict can kind of pacify the region because the hades among the different parties is steve rooted but they said they are glad that justice international justice is done today as a speaking there catherine just looking at some live pictures that were being
10:11 am
played from the courtroom there in the hague as we expect that verdict to be enough though it's been more than twenty years since the strober needs a massacre took place in which blatter it's the defendant in this case is implicated why has it taken so long for justice to well it's course. well the indictment was rendered quite quickly right after the the the the facts and nine hundred ninety five five u.i. citywide so the problem was how to get rotc on large from the battlefield to the court room indeed and this was the problem one of the reasons was that. it was protected not only by his family but also by powerful serbian lead the church the army the serbian army and we don't have to forget back than for a very long time serbia majority of the serbian population saw him as
10:12 am
a national hero so they're very reluctant to anyhow relates information which could lead to the arrest to russia going ladettes so this is one of the reasons why it took so long and by the way i just hear right now that broadcom moderates will be in the courtroom presence we remember that it was a very very long years with radical moderates with no corporation with the i.c.c. right here so now we know because until now we didn't know if it will appear or not in the courtroom or here and now it is the case so we will really of serve how this will go catherine if russia is found guilty of the serious crimes that he's accused of what sort of sentence could he face. well the prosecution office a cold for a life sentence we talk about here for two years we saw this already of the priest
10:13 am
and case of the cottage who got forty years right now in logic is forty seven so forty years and anyhow even if it's less than it would mean probably life sentence but for the victims' families it is important that it would be the maximum sentence pronounced here today at the i.c.c. by catherine thank you did obvious catherine martin is there reporting live from the hague for the ride healing service has admitted it concealed a huge data breach the company's new c.e.o. donna. says the hack affected fifty seven million customers around the world and happened last year but didn't inform customers that their personal information could have been stolen instead they paid the hackers one hundred thousand dollars to keep the breach secret in many countries companies are required to disclose data
