this is deja news coming to you live from berlin the u.n. issues an urgent be a warning on climate change it says we must act now to prevent disasters that will go if deal with temperatures rise much further it's called the next two years probably the most important in human history a coming change x. plus rejoin me in the studio also coming up. the g.i. bill sonata of bulges busy lives to back him in the drawn off the country's presidential election the far right candidate but first for nanda from the leftist
to book a spotty who finished a distant runner up in song dispersed drowned. and down as the nobel prize season goes to a close we speak exclusively to one of the recipients dennis looked really good cool when out of the nobel peace prize poised efforts to stop sexual violence and war. and the next sixty minutes the u.s. backed goodish troops step up the battle to expose islamic state from a stronghold in eastern syria. these troops are preparing for their last fart here in syria again if they would within the next weeks it's going to be a turning point for them that's why they're preparing every. detail of your joint a press to have with the anti science coalition and reports from the front. and cameroon's opposition needed to find it hard to claim victory in sunday's presidential election mores come to says he has a mandate from the. people and is calling on the long serving president who would
be asked to step down we'll go live to our correspondent for the bay latest. on the all. how in a very warm welcome to you. u.n. climate scientists have issued their strongest warning get on the risks of rising temperatures they say we need to take unprecedented steps to avert the worst effects of climate change and that we need to take those steps now these include changing the way we consume energy travel and construct buildings the report warns if they fail to act we will face more heat waves flooding and extreme weather. seems like this could become more frequent if the world does not act now that's the message of scientists on the un's climate change panel whose job was to work out what governments must do to implement the paris accord of twenty fifteen first
climate change is already affecting people ecosystems and livelihoods all around the world. second limited warming to one point five degrees is not impossible but will require our president to transitions in all aspects of society third there are clear benefits to keep warming to one point five do research just compare to two degrees or higher every bit of warming matters. the goal needs to be implemented by twenty thirty but scientists fear will fail to hit it one immediate effect of failure would be more global heatwaves resulting droughts would mean poor harvests impacting the global food supply and harming countries that rely heavily on agriculture. other parts of the world would suffer from an increase in heavy rains and hurricanes these weather patterns combined with rising sea levels could lead to more frequent and severe flooding the scientists on the un's panel say it's
the final call governments everyone must act the message is over to governments at the stage we've told you what the scientific facts the evidence the course it is up to the governments know to decide what to do with it. avoiding scenes like this will be hugely expensive so the scientists but it has to be done a list of all possible if the world acts now. ok so let's not talk to a. lot of ashes sorry he works for the ngo german watch in his expert on climate policy welcome good to have you with us and do you think the i.p.c.c. has got to drive this time with this new report well i think so i think it's a stark warning that's coming at the right time what they found is that global warming is probably more serious than what we've previously thought previously we looked at assessing the risks of two degrees of warming this report looks at
assessing one point five degrees and finds that there is a huge difference and we can avoid many of the risks and dangerous if we manage to stick to one point five to greece. every tenth of a degree counts now tell us more about why point five degrees can make such a difference so if you compare global warming of two degrees to one point five you would have about ten million more people impacted by sea level rise by the end of a century with two degrees of warning almost all coral reefs would be gone with one point five degrees we could preserve some of them and coral reefs are not just beautiful to look at they're actually the livelihood of lots of fishermen depend on the whole island economies depend on them we would have more droughts in the mediterranean we would have actually hundreds of millions of people the report concludes that could be lifted out of poverty if we managed to keep global warming to one point five degrees and would be probably doomed to live in poverty if if it goes to two so look at the earlier target was it two degrees and now what they're
calling for is one point five of these people who sit on the panel at the i.p.c.c. because some people say that some of them have a political agenda is that there is that concern that they could have a political agenda is this something you agree with no i wouldn't agree with that it's a scientific body it's actually brings together the research from climate scientists from around the world they looked at six thousand papers the i.p.c.c. doesn't do its own research it compiles everything we know it's a compilation of global knowledge is the latest state of art of climate science and it's actually scientists who write the report this final summary for policymakers that was approved. this last week and came out today is approved by governments but they can't alter the findings stay have to approve it in the end but the scientific work is done by scientists who are independent so that this very credible authority authoritative well you know they've just been handed science ok but what we did hear one of the panelists in our report is now up to the governments they have to
act and then also talked about the urgency that they need to act right now can the governments react so fast and is that the political will to react to their suggestions may. by the scientists i think that's the main problem right now we don't have the political will yet and hopefully this report can change that by by really pointing out the gravity of the crisis the scientists concluded it's feasible economically and technologically to limit global warming to one point five degrees but it will need unprecedented changes that means fast policy changes let's let's look at look at germany germany always had a very good reputation for its environmental policies but now they've been protests in london outside the german embassy what activists concerned about their concern germany's continued reliance on cold cold is the dirtiest of all the fossil fuels and this new report says we basically have to get out of coal in industrialized countries by twenty thirty germany's doesn't have a plan in place to do that yet there is a commission that's currently looking into
a cold phase out but germany needs to act now we saw the largest climate demonstration ever in germany also this past weekend fifty thousand people asking for more climate action and an exit from coal so i think there's hope i think the german population is supporting strong climate action but our government needs to act now said joe many is not being strong enough on climate change i mean what really can individuals that you and me play in trying to change that mindset well i think this what we saw we have a growing climate movement we had fifty thousand people marching for for climate action this week and i think actually engaging your elected representatives asking for more climate action is crucial and we can do things of course reduce our energy consumption use energy more wisely that every one of us can do right by shift from the n.-g. o. german watch an expert on climate change policy thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with us. let me now bring you up to date with some other stories making
news around the world french and italian authorities are working to contain an oil spill after two ships north of the island of corsica leaking fuel has formed a twenty kilometer oil slick in the mediterranean no one was injured in the collision which involved. an anchor to container ship. turkish president has ordered the sound the consulate in istanbul to reveal the whereabouts of the missing. dissidents saudi writer jamal disappeared last week during a visit to the consulate has to prove he actually left the building. days of heavy rainfall have killed at least a dozen people across central america these images are from the honduras where the rain has swollen rivers and caused month slides thousands of people have been evacuated from their homes flooding is also affected. and.
far right a politician a giant has won the first round of brazil's presidential election grabbing forty six percent of the votes he low face a runoff in three weeks time against a left winger fernando dodd who finished a distant second both n.r.o. attracted support by promising to fight corruption his opponents say he poses a threat to democracy in the largest country in latin america. if one word could describe brazil right now it would have to be angry. over political corruption rising crime and years of economic decline and anger that on sunday propelled a right wing populist to within reach of the presidency but not quite close enough so it is a runoff election now to think about and here there are just two options very different ones essentially splitting forces into camps in the far right and left.
because he's the one who has the best proposals for children health and security. right now security is our biggest problem. i'll vote for anyone but also naro. he will destroy brazil judging by his speeches we know that he is not fit to be our president. that of what they were both when i voted for both a narrow and i expect oh vote for him again my own but let's see. what this. poll sonera ran on promises including jailing crooked politicians and giving police free rein to shoot drug traffickers despite his public price of brazil's former military dictatorship and insulting women and minorities the men and tropical trump secured nearly forty seven percent of sunday's voters balsa nari was stabbed in
september forcing a big chunk of his campaign to happen from hospital on social media where he again ten two on sunday. i'm sure that in the second round we will intensify our efforts and will obtain the victory i will face leftist candidate financial dad who took nearly twenty nine percent of sunday's ballot warning that he's opponent could pose a risk to democracy dodd says he'll now focus on the next round. of his because i mean we will face that debate with respect we go into the democratic battlefield with just one weapon the argument we don't carry guns out of most of the final run off of brazil's presidency is scheduled for sunday october twentieth. now bolton are a success marks another victory for an anti establishment populist and kill the politics and as you already heard in our report social media is playing
a key. we've really got enough money from a social media desk. i'm doing this let's not it was a fringe element even though he's been in politics for some thirty years tell us about how he's use social media to build his profile yami really wasn't that well known in brazil and national politics he'd been around a while but what he did have was a very strong and passionate base of supporters particularly online in fact is a very large social media following that something has played a big role for him we're talking about facebook in particular he has a lot of facebook followers in fact when you compare worries that back in july when you think surely law launched his campaign more than five million followers on facebook and now as hopefully you can see here he has more than seven million that's for than any other brazilian politician that's a big weapon in his arsenal you can compare that now as you see to his rival for nando a dot this is his facebook page around three quarters of a million so not even surpassing a million that's
a big difference for both so narrow that's been a crucial edge mean he doesn't he isn't supported by a big party so there's not as much financial resources available the traditional political resources instead he really has used facebook to get his message out and to get his voters to the polls in fact you know we heard about that near fatal stabbing incident he was in the hospital he didn't stop campaigning in fact he went to facebook instead while he was in the hospital you can take a look at his page and this is a common tactic for him while he was recovering he did several of these facebook live videos and here he is actually in his hospital room you can see the monitors and all the cables there speaking directly to his audience and he did that in fact instead of going to the most important televised political debate in the country he also enjoys the backing of lots of high profile brazilians including as you can see here the famous brazilian footballer won the dino who posted an instagram photo.
showing his support and in fact social media runs in the family business his son eduardo boss naro who is also a politician posted on twitter a picture of himself with steve bannon of course the former advisor to president trump many of both scenarios campaign tactics have been compared to trump definitely using social media that's a big key for both politicians and many elections a fake need fake news is a big issue what good is social media playing in regards to this in brazil yeah i mean it has been a big problem during this election of many people like my facebook that's a big focus for mark zuckerberg of course but really one of the biggest problem issues in brazil is once one hundred twenty million brazilians use it that's more than half of brazil's population what's really becoming the battleground for fake news in the country in fact we can show you an example of what we're talking about here in terms of fake news in brazil this is a video that went viral last month and it claimed to show
a car being attacked by protesters because a car had a pro both an r o sticker on it this was the millions of times before it was revealed that this was in fact footage from twenty seventeen of a protest against the current president michel tame there that video was debunked by a team of journalists on the ground called come prova it's difficult though to gauge the state the scale and the reach of these sorts of fake news videos when they're in whatsapp because what's app is a closed platform it's encrypted it's not like facebook it's not out in the open you know runoff elections we heard coming up in a couple of weeks and those fact checkers will be busy trying to tame all that misinformation out there absolutely what has to be salvaged in can last month thank you very much for being that information to us. not nobel prize season has wrapped up today with the award for outstanding work in economics we'll have more on that in just a bit but first we have an exclusive interview with one of this is nobel peace
prize been as dennis one the prize along with the moron for trying to stop the use of sexual violence in warfare in his native congo i asked him about how he felt about the fact that the nobel committee had chosen to highlight this issue. for many i conceive in my country common people even don't understand what it means. to hate. as they were before they even don't understand how rape can destroy not only the victim but how our help is destroying the family as a community and or as a country. and i think that to really put attention on this question for me is very important women are really fighting a lot to briggs. where this question is that in this region it was very difficult
even if you have evidence that. the women who was raped and she have troops wounded in a very bad way or genital most of the trial and women will come with as a reasons because it was shameful to talk about what's happened but to believe i can see is that women are more straw to generals to come directly to the hospital or to police and say see what's happened to me and nor who is responsible for it i think that to talk about it is a way. to just to look to the perpetrators that if you mess. against me. everyone will know and look you but the show will be to you and it seems that we have to look a lot to transfer that to should be shifted from victim to
potatoes. that was dennis mcveigh gay talking to d.w. he is the winner of the peace prize nobel peace prize they say and now they are the young here's the the woman who shares this is the way of peace prize with dr melfi again met with reporters in washington today she said. the on no was a surprise to her but it comes with great the sponsibility she called them governments around the walk to find genocide and sexual violence and to bring perpetrators to justice my god that was a victim of sexual violence after being kidnapped from her home in iraq by extremists of the so what islamic state she has campaigned against sexual violence since the scaping captivity. helena joins me now and she's got more on the nobel economics prize helena that's right amrita the nobel economics prize is going to two americans in the top is very current indeed to now governments continuously encourage us to spend economies strive to grow we all have to be more productive but at what cost to the world we live it this next next pair
of economist has won the owner in quite a bit of cash for research linking economic growth and global warming awarding the prize to william nordhaus and paul romer the nobel committee said it was honoring two economists who've been tackling the most urgent questions of our age climate change and sustainable economic growth this year's laureates provide us with tools that are crucial for understanding how the economy interacts with nature and with knowledge and which policies help generate sustained and sustainable long term economic growth. william de nordhaus is a professor at yale university and an expert on environment and climate economics you combines economics with natural sciences to show how the economy changes the climate even as climate change affects the economy nordhaus shares the prize with paul m. romer of new york university romas work focuses on how innovation drives prosperity
the problems of developing countries and the distribution of wealth both laureates of advice governments and international financial institutions in the past. they both welcomed the prize which comes with a million dollar check although things almost didn't quite work out. i got to farm called this morning and i didn't answer either one of them because i thought it was some damn call. i wasn't i wasn't expecting it that progress was awarding the nobel prize for economics sciences to two economists who put environment climate change and social justice of the center of their research is a clear signal to us president donald trump has removed the us from the paris climate accord accepting the prize on the telephone pole romo was at pains to encourage governments businesses and households to tackle global warming themselves if it's entirely possible. to produce less carbon there some kind
are but once we start to try and reduce carbon emissions we'll be surprised but it wasn't as hard as we anticipated q some questions yes well the international energy agency has issued its annual report it says that even though the share of green energy is growing around the world by twenty four c. renewables will only account for eighty percent of the energy mix that's well short of the agency sustainability target. renewables will be the fastest growing part of the global tricity sector the report says they'll provide almost a third of power demand in twenty twenty three from about a quarter in twenty seventeen when you currently make up more than thirty percent of germany's energy makes us almost forty percent of the country's energy needs are still met by burning coal. thirteen percent comes from atomic power stations compared to about a third from a nubile energy like wind and solar power. and other sources top up the rest of the
energy mix. for love renewables or for cars to account for more than seventy percent of growth in global elektra's city generation according to the international energy agency's report. solar photovoltaic technology followed by wind hydro power and bio energy are expected to lead the field in terms of growth but hydroelectric power remains the largest renewable source sixteen percent of global demand by twenty twenty three. but despite the growth in the renewable sector the i.a.e.a. warns it won't be enough to meet long term climate and sustainability goals the agency says the areas which are not moving to a new both quickly enough are transports and he sing both for home fund industry. back over to amrita now and has sat chapter in spanish history amrita that's right
helena a court in madrid has found an elderly doctor to get it stealing a newborn baby and giving it to another woman intern the franco dictatorship judges however did not convict the defendant say the birth mother had waited too long to bring her case still it was the first time stan had tried anyone for the practice little thousands of babies given away to in for women close to the regime often with the help from the catholic church their mothers were told their babies had died leaving many with a painful struggle to ana the truth. every day dolores ruiz comes to this old closed cemetery in cardenas with her daughter she wouldn't be able to endure watching the excavation of this grave on her own was her son really buried here she gave birth to him in one nine hundred seventy but only saw him for a few seconds before he was taken from her. so you know if it made a nurse later came out of the newborns room and told me that my child had died
period just like that did he really did i or did the hospital sell him in conti's alone dozens of families have applied to have graves excavated bones clothes and gods are carefully removed and then analyzed by anthropologists and geneticists six families have already determined that their children are not buried in this graveyard as they were told. in spain stealing newborns was a tool in the one nine hundred forty s. it was used to punish the franco dictatorships political opponents the practice continued well into the one nine hundred ninety s. long after spain became a democracy it was a lucrative business for maternity clinics which sold the babies to childless couples. the newspaper reported that some hospitals even kept newborn corpses in cold storage they would bring them out as proof of the newborn's death whenever
biological mothers showed up saying they did not believe the story. but only one case says ever gone to court that is magic go to her evidence was enough for a lawsuit against eduardo villa a gynaecologist from madrid that he was accused of stealing in as madrigal from her biological mother fifty years ago that was like many families looking for their lost children showed up for the trials opening for them the case proved that the practice of stealing babies had existed and have been a bitter reality for thousands of people if they know it make us it's no longer just my case it's now becoming clear that babies were stolen throughout spain unless he's less a man who is at trial the elderly man appeared confused he said he remembered nothing and wasn't responsible for anything. that
sparked angry protests at the time. he says that the doctor and his nurses who claim they know nothing that they're criminals. and. i've got a different finally admits they stole their children now the government will have to do something it can't come here not. eduardo of a law has been found guilty but he wasn't convicted for his crime eunice madrigal says she'll appeal the decision. but meanwhile and a lot us release from cardenas will continue the painful wait for the results of the excavation. on the public whenever my family comes together i feel there is something missing someone is missing here and i will never be able to fill this gap. even if he were still alive how would i be able to find him no more little. to laura says if he is indeed buried here it would
sadden her immensely but at least she would have closure and finally some peace of mind. you're watching the w. news i'll have more news for you coming up shortly do stay with us if you can. cut cut cut cut cut cut cut cut cut cut cut cut on. brazilian society is deeply divided the rich versus poor right versus left and i guess he did election campaign has split the country even further and now find most sentence of flames who will be the next president showdown in brazil. comes up punishments.

i guess sometimes i am but i still often whip it up and thanks taken to the german culture of looking at the stereotypes of the question but if you think the future of the country. i don't want. you to take it as grandma. to me it's all out there. i'm rachel join me to meet the germans on the w. paused. you're watching news coming to you live from berlin under our top story the u.n. has issued a stockists warning yet on climate change in a new report it says the world has little more than a decade to take radical anti warming measures or freeze disastrous consequences. a final push is underway to take back territory still controlled by source or islamic state it's all this will be the final chapter in the war against
a terrorist group that started more than four years ago in syria the group calls a sliver of land in east in the east of the country the region is a rant a small town of hygiene not far from the border with iraq an alliance of kurdish and arabic militia the syrian democratic forces together with the help of us back to coalition forces are trying to capture the i s stronghold. the u.s. military gave an opportunity to detail the reporters be a good. karim to see for themselves what's going on. these recruits are here to liberate the last areas in syria held by islamic state in just a few days the young men from the syrian democratic forces will be transferred to the front about thirty kilometers away. these troops are preparing for their last fight here in syria against i as if they were in within the next weeks it's going
to be a turning point for them that's why they're preparing every day. marching shooting practice and tactics the u.s. estimates that up to two thousand fighters a still entrenched in hygiene. this one hundred four year old commander of the kurdish arab militia is rallying his troops for the bloody battle ahead. i've lost so many friends so many i can't count one died in my arms and another right next to me there were so many. the u.s. invited us to visit the s.d.f. as part of the press trip with the group is us commander of the special operations forces in iraq and syria major general robison since twenty fifteen the u.s. led coalition has been supporting the kurdish arab militias in their fight against the so-called islamic state with the air raids weapons vehicles and training
through the offensive against the last i a stronghold operation round up has been running for four weeks now but the militias i'm making slow progress i s fighters have dug a tunnel system under the city set up combat positions in residential buildings and light mines everywhere. isis is brutal they've basically booby trapped. any structures they can and they've laid out minefields everything is basically you know rigged as we've said so that's a challenge that's all we take most of our casualties we trained you know the techniques we've got vehicles but it's a challenge. everybody appreciates that on behalf of the world thank you. bought the s.t.s. might not be an easy partner for the u.s. many of the fighters support the band could ish workers' party p k k which is on
europe's and washington's terror list locals also accuse the militia of forced recruitment when question s.t.'s command is tennis. you know. we don't force anybody to join. the commander prefers to talk about how well cooperation is going with the u.s. and that the anti highest coalition will be needed on the ground in syria for some time. because. we need stability in this whole area we cannot achieve this without coalition troops. this message is echoed to us by the u.s. commander even after a victory in hygiene the mission here is far from over u.s. troops will still be needed. as they can be remnants of isis there are small pockets small they call sleeper cells here so i think those are things that
we have to basically clean up on the back side of all this so again you've heard robin during the few devices so it's not just their so-called you know physical area that they control in order to prevent a resurgence of i yes local security forces would have to be trained and civilian structures established no one here is willing to say how long this could take with the months on here is where left with the impression that it's more likely to be. a coup deal because want to get a shoot a result the reporters who filed that report are just short so and she joins me now in the studio welcome to the get or now you were given an opportunity by the u.s. military to tour the region along with fun how free were you to move around and talk to people while you were filming. we were very restricted in our movements for security reasons the u.s. army had chosen all the locations we could go to
a little bit also the people we we were able to talk to. and when we were in the spots we only had very very short time to shoot. there because of security concerns because they're still attacks in the region. still operating sleeper cells there so the security was very tight but we were able to talk to the people in the street and in other spots but to be honest we always had soldiers around us and i had the feeling that the people were quite intimidated somewhat restricted perspective and one of the interesting issues you touched on in your report was that many people from the syrian democratic forces are goods and some of them have links to the p.k. k. there that's a separatist organization into a queue of goods which took you to the terrorist organization there was more of that this. cooperation with the s.t.s.
is on a diplomatic field a very very. hard and not easy for the for the yes because in a way they are drawn into the conflict between turkey and the courts and the kurds the kurdish general we were talking to he made it very openly he said oh we need them or kids here to fight i asked but we also need america hears two to defeat to help us because if they go there tricky my to my attacker like they did in freedom and the americans really don't want to hear something like that because. they're in their relationships to to their once close not to turkey is already tense and things like that they don't want to touch in the in the talks about the sort of the key issues that makes this whole conflict so complicated but big it is great to get your perspective brief if you can tell us what is the position of civilians in hodgin where you are but this offensive is due to take place there's still thirty
thousand civilians in had gene and best if try to secure. a path out and ask the people of the civilians to leave the battle area but many didn't. us are still staying there because. they are afraid to leave their things alone and and we also heard from inside had gene that i as is trying to trap the people there and to have sort of human shields and this is a big problem of the fight against said jean because there will be more civil casualties because i as has their fighting positions in houses and in buildings so it is very hard for the s.t.'s and for the u.s. to separate civilians from the fighters biggest issue because thank you very much for your reporting as well as your analysis and joining me in the studio. turning now to cameroon where opposition leader maurice come to has claimed victory in the
country's presidential election the final results are not out but if he has won it would signal a huge change for cameron incumbent poor bia has ruled the country for over thirty five years and was widely expected to retain power come to insist it's time for him to step down. cameron's opposition leader cling to victory despite government warnings not to announce unofficial results. i have received a clear mandate from the cameroonian example which i intend to defend to the. forest come to set he has beaten out paul bia who has been in power since nine hundred eighty two many young people in cameroon have no no other president than him opposition supporters very that the fractured opposition parties wouldn't be able to unite to mount a challenge that eighty five year old leader for them the country desperately needs change. so i say this is an unprecedented election because the cameroonian people
are fed up with a rotten system that's made us suffer for thirty six years we really want this victory to be for the people. i think that the next president will change our living conditions maybe he'll improve them and also give some jobs to young people especially young people who don't have jobs. of what a city we want someone who will change cameroon who will ensure that we can have good living conditions on the in the southwest and and move west of the country troops gathered ballot boxes to and from the polling stations a conflict with angle from separatists has killed more than four hundred people in those regions cameron elections commission and african union of service say the poll was largely honest with only minor irregularities although the opposition now says the one people must wait up to two weeks to know the official resounds.
that we now draw in our correspondent fred one vs who has been a fun way of the election in cameroon fed to you in the capital of the angry phone southwest of the predominantly french speaking cameroon fundus followers were mobbed by violence their turnout was low tell us more about the challenges the region faces. thank you very much i'm retired there are several programs in boyer for example day issues of insecurity you you just go to bed and you he had just gotten shots there and then people if you talk to people they're afraid their fear is reigning in this region people don't have any jobs and those who have jobs they are not able to go to work because of insecurity for four or five trees to you as it has been right these if you walk around the streets what you see people i just i just afraid very afraid all of the hospitals have been
a close the universities have been across there's so many or so many problems in this region. and a friend of the opposition leader morris come to has claimed victory in this presidential election how credible is. it's really difficult to see how credible he can be or how how he cannot be credible the people you talk to here they say that he's a credible person he's the most respected politician in this country and so on they're saying that even here really won the elections it will be great news for camero neons who are saying that president ford be a has been in power for a long time and it's time for him to go so but then we have had in the report it's the work of the electoral commission to announce who is the winner and from what people say here. most of the people on the richter commission supporters of
paul bia so it's in immense to be seen whether there were white head and are now seen as the winner if it will turn out there that we are around and then they are now as president probably are as we now for another seven years. if a president will be has been in power for thirty six years if he has really lost the vote will you concede his defeat and step down. that's a million dollar question it's really difficult for any double has been in power for thirty six years to concede he has known anything else and he has just been in office in paris so even if he is not the created as a winner i think it's a big disappoint disappointment for him but again whether he's going to accept immense to be seen and if it's not then prove our people here are saying that
probably they're going to be violence and protest in your own day and other cities so everything is in a flux of fed move it thank you very much for that live update and that assessment of the situation in the cameroons. turning out to hit them with a new field allegations against a german comic ahead in the story amrita audi is currently in the hot seat german prosecutors have probing whether folks fog and premium segment subsidiary falsified documents on cars intended for export to south korea reports from german media say that employees. also suspected of having modified pollution and fuel consumption test results are also alleged to have changed the shall see numbers of the affected engines to throw off regulators if proven that would mean fortunately obtained authorization to be able to sell its cars in south korea prosecution in the
southern german city of munich say the investigation has been ongoing for months. and joining me now to talk through this is jeanette dumela and from business to know what will can you tell us about the allegations currently against saudi well it helps to think of this as an accompanying fraud to the original sin of emissions cheating so this has less to do with manipulating the cars themselves make them pass emissions which is what the diesel scandal was about but it has more to do with manipulating the paperwork on these old cars to be exported so we're told that three employees in leading but not executive positions are being investigated for this particular type of fraud so to reiterate felt they entered false admissions they had on fuel efficiency data they switched around the chassis numbers that's of course the unique identification number that every car has to willfully confuse regulators so that made this kind of paperwork forgery sounds banal even but it's
potentially very damning for audio confirmed now investigators are paying special attention to already because of evidence that the original emissions trading software that was discovered in billions of thoughts phone cars was originally developed by audi and you know as you point out these are potentially very serious allegations meaning that these cause then. made it to south korea but as we understand it currently it's german prosecutors who are investigating right now indeed now these cars were exported to south korea and were found to be non-compliant with south korean regulations but this operation would have to have been masterminded the audi had orders here in germany and it's in within the course of one of several diesel emissions cheating scandal investigations ongoing here that this aciphex south korean angle was uncovered so in march of last year german state prosecutors raided the audi headquarters and discovered these internal documents describe these measures that were being taken with a south korean export so meanwhile former c.e.o.
of the rupert father has been in jail since a jew in a foreign is allegedly role in the coverup and he's not thought to out said anything about this until now so his arrest is partly to keep him from interfering from ongoing investigations so it's possible that as investigators go about their business even more will come to light have already been some actions taken out of the probe is a link to an older case where a south korean audi executive was sentenced to eighteen months in prison for falsifying a certification documents for cars and it's fair to note that south korea itself has been particularly tough on forex violence since the emission story emerged now it actually banned eighty or eighty models from being sold at the time although sales started up again so if you take that as an example depending on how much more is discovered about fraudulent behavior around these old cars the group could face much more internal much more a sale suspensions in individual markets more fines and more spending on fixes and buybacks the way it's had to do in the us and possibly here in germany as well.
from business thank you very much. well turbulent times our car make a dime or the company's financial chief surprisingly announced that he will step down his contract is due to expire at the end of next year and he told the carmakers to head of the supervisory board that he would not seek an extension of his departure call comes on the heels of the dyna boss stages that his announcement that he will pass the baton in may next year. q. and it's back of the emirates now for a sports update thank you very much and i'm sorry we had that little technical
issue with that report from the business desk but let's bring you some sport bundesliga news and on sunday are be live six trashed him back in a one sided affair the bulls scored six goes lifting the club to second in the bundesliga. leipzig went ahead after just three minutes team over an hour with the leg work kevin counter with the finishing touch just four minutes later use of paulson made it to know. their owner again the playmaker pulls a net in his third goal into being after twenty one minutes it was three nil marcel separates or smashing home this time. and a nightmare first half wasn't over for nuremberg as vera made it for. norm berg's defense all at sea. the
mauling continued in the second separates it with his second. and very put the icing on the cake to make it six. monica she. was also in the media moscow winning the most coveted prize for german literature the german book prize full normal occupation ago the award was handed out just a short while ago in frankfurt and joining me in the studio as we speak is a box from good obvious cause of death to tell us more about the author. well lovely to see the. video there is to see you actually on it now
a very happy in. the job book christ is about well you know money market you know she's one of germany's most acclaimed novelists actually and she's based in berlin but because her mother is from the cannery islands she spent a lot of her chime food and youth there and that is also where her current novel archipelago takes place on the island of ten or if it's the contrast between the islands and her life in a suburb in the northern germany that she draws on and archipelago is my grandma force novel actually and it's not the first time that she really made it onto the short list of the german book prize she has been one of the nominees in two thousand and fifteen already but this time she won the prize and she herself says what i think is interesting because she says in her writing that every novel is like a gamble with herself whether she can transpose her ideas into
a type of reality or not and i would say she has certainly achieved that. that's right so what do you think made ocular go it sounds really interesting from the way you describe it what do you think it made it just stand out that it won the prize well i would say i mean many many factors of course but what makes it very special is the unconventional storytelling of this novel because the author tells the story backwards so she starts on a summer evening in two thousand and fifteen and she ends in one thousand nine hundred ninety one thousand nine hundred sorry so she talks about family stories mixing them with the political events during a whole century but yeah let's take a look. in the archipelago in a marina marker charts the history of her family. full thousand kilometers from germany off the african coast lies tenor reef an emotionally charged backdrop for intimate remark his novel which takes readers on
a journey through time and space through the political and personal. if we're going to hit the island is on the periphery of europe and it's always interesting to tell a story from that perspective but more importantly this island didn't fit in with bourgeois german suburbia were i grew up about. the author's mother is from the canary islands so she knows tannery for well her book tells the story of three families belonging to different classes in society spanning birth adultery love and death but the story is over shadowed by historical milestones the spanish civil war the franco dictatorship. being a maria marker travels backwards in time from the present to nine hundred nineteen a narrative challenge. ahead to take everything i know about
storytelling about building suspense and conveying information and forget it or turn it upside down after cops. despite the complexity of the story have prose is calm and clear on. i dislike opulence and corners it's basically sentimentality a sort of beautified retrospective with. nothing is beautiful in its epic tale both time passing an isolated moments are masterfully depicted. i think every moment is the sum of all past moments the past is still present. and the thought of this award is a very big deal here in germany but also in the wider lived. movie was why well we have to consider that this is actually the most important and persistence award in german literature it's a german book prize and it is comparable to to the man booker prize in the u.k. for instance and the winner which is now in
a million mark as we've seen in the report she is awards of twenty five thousand euros which is not bad already but what is even more important is that fear the winner usually ends up on the bestseller lists and every year there are six nominees who make it onto the shortlist out of almost two hundred submittal titles this year what i personally think is very nice to see this year on the show this is that half of the nominees have been women and that now it is the first time after five years that a woman has won a prize can only be good news. for views of us who don't know i. reckon they find more information about her more suddenly of course on our website on the. value that comes less culture you can find more on the winner but also about the other five nominees were also very interesting persons and interesting novels you can check it out and light box thank you very much for being us all that information great to have you on the program. that is it for me under thirty now but do stay
