developing due to the supreme court ruling on second february the rolling it's very clear and we have been asking the government to implement it be international community has been calling because one month progress but implemented but the government at first sure the people and also the international community that they will respect and. implement but after two to two days. they said they are not going to. obey any orders yesterday in the morning at the attorney general along with the chief of defense force and the a team commissioner for these. gave a statement saying that they will not obey any orders from the supreme court and that they will only be following the orders of the legal advice from the attorney general we are very worried as they have measured the the or these and the military have strolled into the supreme court and we have reports that all the five judges
of the supreme court has been arrested and few minutes back the former president manuel of the guy human his son in law has been arrested and even. former president a human is the half brother of the of the current president and his own son and before is well known also still remains in jail and right now we are in a joint party but a group meeting and really the office has been surrounded by the military and all the so we are really worried we are where. we have reports that like after arresting the former president there will be more asked of these and also former commissioner of police and many more other politicians could be arrested tonight so we are deeply worried and very very much concerned about all this and i'm not mad what are the implications just explain for our viewers you know that the parliament is that effectively under military control so just explain that for us what does
that mean. actually our parliament has was padlocked in june last year and since then the military to military has hijacked the parliament and it all depends on that which we were able to walk into the parliament for the past month or. so the really difficult time when we had the parliament session the. draft forcefully by the military from the parliament chamber we have been pepper sprayed by the military and we always see huge number of military personel inside the chamber surrounding the my parliament speaker because he is an imposter we have the majority of the parliament this is the main reason why the whole thing started developing so for now we did the constitution has been suspended the parliament and the military and the supreme court isn't the be the tree. that yesterday all this is
a military step. of the state of emergency statement they have deprived us from from a lot of rights that has been guaranteed in our constitution like the right to privacy the right to strike and that's certainly the right to unlawful arrest and detention they have suspended the supreme court so there's not even much we can do . but this is this all these things are being done against the people of the more than even if we have an election today we are confident that we will win this election with over a majority of ninety percent but through. people in the security forces he's just trying his best to survive but i'm sure even though we all get arrested we still have hope that we'll overcome this but for that we need. a huge support from the international community we really appreciate the support that we have.
been receiving for for a long time we believe for the past three four years we have been working very closely with the mitchell community like the european european parliament but really resolution calling for travel bans and targeted. the country of america. in the many many countries that will be politically trying to solve this crisis in moral but there is the president is a dictator he has been ordering all these and sometimes. we make sure they are refusing to meet but won't be diplomats so at this point i would like to call on the international community that it is the time that there's a step further further steps more then. i'm just going to have to jump in and and stop you there i hear your call loud and clear there to the international committee ahmed maloof their opposition politicians speaking to us about the situation in the mall days on thank you.

snow that's just lying there at the moment now fortunately it looks like the worst is over the system responsible for all that wintry weather it's gradually pulling away towards the northeast but behind it is going to tell a good deal cooler so the maximum temperature on tuesday we're just looking at minus ten so a very cold day here still the end of the snow over europe though still for the southwestern parts there is this circulation here has gradually edging its way across parts of france and across the alps as well still more wintry weather out of that and further south where it's a little bit too mild to see snow we'll be seeing heavy rain there work its way across italy and eventually across the other side of the adriatic as well now some of the unsettled weather over europe has also been spilling into the northern parts of africa and we still got some showers over there as we head through the next few days and we're also seeing some rather sharp outbreaks of rain over parts of our area morocco and in morocco over the mountains of course very cold here so we're expecting some of that to turn to snow robots will get to around twelve degrees.

it shows that china will soon finish its military zation of seven reefs in the south china sea an international tribunal in the hague in two thousand and sixteen rejected china's argument that it enjoys historic rights over most of the south china sea but the pictures clearly show that china has built a massive runway on mischief reef which the tribe you know ruled it was in philippine waters including control towers and radio meters often used in milot she communication small the reefs now have wind turbines help pads and observation towers transport ships designed to carry are more details and up to eight hundred troops have also been spotted according to security experts three of these reefs now have three kilometer long runways making them as effective as aircraft carriers china has also built a harbor facilities extending the reach of its maritime assets not only in the
south china sea but also the central pacific i don't think the philippines can do anything about it from the military point of view the belief that the government should do this to us the government will tell you what are their intentions in the south china sea the philippine government this misses this and blames the previous administration so what we want us to see all that we could do is to extract a promise from china not to reclaim any new artificial islands. but what you feature in your dues people to be are all directly islands that were there even before the detail of the administration came but these spoto those are believed to have been taken between june and december last year under president reagan due to his watch the balls for betrays their word for the government itself house nor coherent policy even comes through the west for the princess alternately issue and that can
only be the advantage of the chinese who will then use this situation president there to insist china should still be the country strongest ally he calls it an independent foreign policy veering away from the united states while trying to build closer relations with china and russia security experts say there appears to be little that the philippines or any other country can do to stop china from its military zation and that the philippine government silence on the issue is enabling china's expansionist ambitions in the south china sea in danger of not only its own sovereignty but also the security of its allies in the pacific. dog an al jazeera mandela. cape town has pushed back days evil the day may have to turn off most taps because of a long drive by nearly a month now officials say it's now expected to be may the eleventh they're anticipating
