2:21 pm
abuses during the iraq times she's also been accused of having a very militant leadership style a some say this could take her legacy. but for people here the evil of their part type system she fought draft hotshot cummings. would understand. itself was fired. it was natural. to gauge violence against. a comes to mind is that she defied an apartheid system which isn't such a huge negative impact on our country and the biggest labor party still lives are today. she might have lived a checkered life with her own political and passing struggles but many people in south africa want to remember half of the role she played in the fight against apartheid and the impact she had to know people here for them she is the mother of

2:23 pm
the political leadership in south africa when most of the a.n.c. does a.n.c. leaders were arrested and many of them in exile women they're not together with the likes of other witnesses who knew where the faces of the sort of second black struggle against apartheid so she'll be funded remembered by many many many south africans. following his following if that her death i think people misunderstood misunderstood had a role after the release of mina political prisoners and those would return from exile women in the only struggle she was the one who was basically in front of the struggle in south africa and when these people came back men by and large they then wanted to usurp that control and power from her and that's when she became somehow defiant because she was for decades i mean of my generation for example no no other face of political leadership but when

a mandela. russia's president vladimir putin is on his way to turkey for a summit on syria ties between the two countries have been steadily improving even as their relationships with the west strained further iranian president hassan rouhani will also be joining the summit later on wednesday. well workers in france have begun three months of rolling strikes causing chaos for commuters four and a half million passengers will be affected by two days of stoppages each week the rail workers angry at present and well nigh calls plans to reform the industry around half of all staff are taking industrial action the team barber has been out meeting some of those affected in paris. this is one of several bus stations in paris where people can travel to cities around france and in fact further afield it is a lot more busy than normal the company the private company that runs this place says that they've laid on extra services on tuesday because of the train strike but some
2:25 pm
passengers we spoke to said that they still felt inconvenience and that their journey was going to take a lot longer than normal that said on the front it's destructive to our plans because the train would have caught us how much early and we having to wait for a bus and the journey will be much slower. will another solution for passengers trying to get from paris to other cities is car sharing it's already extremely popular particularly among young people but coincidentally on tuesday there's a strike at air france so vats adding to the demand for that particular solution. that most of the i couldn't take a plane either because of the strike there i absolutely have to get unarmed and i don't drive so car sharing seem like the best idea. well some of the passengers the travelers that we've spoken to say that they fully understand why the strike is happening others say that the rail sector does need to be reformed and they do
2:26 pm
think that the three month strike is excessive but one thing's for sure they're going to have to get used to this disruption because it's going to last until the end of june. now here's to palm to justice has announced little evaluate immigration judges on her official leave they resolve cases it's an effort to clear up a backlog of court cases and alan fisher has the latest force from washington d.c. it's estimated there own six hundred eighty thousand cases to be dealt with by the immigration courts the department of justice wants to see that number significantly reduced they want to see the number of people hanging around waiting for their court dates essentially to go away because they can apply for work or they're waiting for the case to be had you know what the department of justice would like to see is a judge's processing somewhere in the region of seven hundred cases a year at the moment the average is just under about six hundred eighty so the department of justice says this isn't a huge leap this is just probably dealing with three cases
2:27 pm
a day for every judge in the point to the fact that some judges deal with more than a thousand cases in the year but the difficulty is some immigration cases are a lot more complicated than others no immigration judges when they say in the new collective agreement with the government their greed to the introduction of some quarters and so the department of justice is saying from the beginning of the new financial year and tobar we want to see this going forward it could be open to challenge in the courts particularly from people who would be concerned that judges are more interested in processing the number of cases rather than jus a process in their courtrooms so although the department of justice issued this statement to all immigration judges on friday before the easter holiday in the united states it's clearly something that could well play out over the coming months as we see likely illegal challenges to this idea from donald trump's the heartland of justice. well staying in the u.s.
