10:00 pm
they receive this. well the point here is surely as if the deal that's been arrived at in brussels appears unimpressive to people in brussels what matters now here in germany is how that deal is perceived in bavaria specifically by the christian social union that governs the states of area and which in coalition with angela merkel here in berlin controls the interior ministry as the interior minister holds the whole for who are affectively compelled angle americal to try to find a european solution with the threats that he has interior minister this coming monday we decide to start sending refugees back at the borders so how will he perceive this this deal this solution the point to make is it is becoming clear today that there are some member states of the european union for specifically france poland spain and denmark who are prepared to enter into negotiations on a bilateral one might say quadrilateral basis with germany about taking on some
10:01 pm
migrant some refugees and mr is a hopeful we understand is going to be charged with that negotiation so the question for him and his party now is do they want to stay in the government do they want to accept this solution do they want to retract. their threats to go it alone ministerial e. and fall into line with angela merkel and indeed the rest of the e.u. with this deal or do they want to plow on and potentially plunge the government here into the uncertainty that would ensue big questions we might get some answers on sunday because the christian democratic union that's going to merkel's party and separately the christian social union have a very and allies will be meeting on sunday afternoon to discuss the aftermath of this brussels deal this brussels summit and we'll be following as you can imagine we'll be following those events very closely on sunday to see what's what facts will emerge from them part time and i can live in berlin thank you italy's new populist prime minister has threatened to block a day on less other e.u.
10:02 pm
countries agreed to share the number of refugees coming to the e.u. here far to them as a bargain charlie antal has more from sicily. we're hearing tanya and this is the last ship that brought in rescued migrants two weeks ago since then interior minister matteo salvini has closed italy's ports and at the summit there was no discussion as to what will happen the next time a european boat carrying rescued migrants is left stranded in the mediterranean instead italy's prime minister just every county emerged from the summit saying italy is no longer alone he went in threatening to use his veto it if there was not an agreement that suited italy he did and because of that italians believe they got some concessions but nothing will change if we don't play hardball on grey's our voices will never get anything so long. under the new e.u. agreement italy could host voluntarily new migrant centers that would process all arrivals and determine which are genuine refugees and which are illegal migrants to
10:03 pm
us. this country already has refugee camps the difference is that these arrivals would no longer be subject to the dublin regulations italy would not be responsible for them soley the idea is they could be divided up between other member states but again there's no concrete agreement on hell that would happen and for italians sharing the burden is a key issue. italy's been left alone it's true but of course i don't agree on the methods used by our interior minister i do think europe has to be reformed especially because there is no agreement on this issue the agreement also promises to explore the idea of setting up disembarkation platforms in north africa to try and process migrants before they even attempt to the mediterranean crossing but not all italians are convinced because he was offered a full month trying to fix the problem in africa on the spot and trying to help them here it is really difficult those fleeing war should always be welcomed and
10:04 pm
not pushed away but pushing away is exactly what italy has done in closing its ports and the new e.u. declaration that asylum seekers landing in italy are actually arriving in europe seems almost redundant. but in our head of the news hour and quoting will tell you why ethiopia's economy is in crisis despite government efforts to boost exports and contain rising inflation. mexico's presidential front runner is promising he will rescue the country's impoverished population but it might not be that simple i'm john holmes and i'll tell you more. and the biggest star in basketball or on james has a huge decision to make details coming up in sports. a man with murder after five people were killed at a newspaper office in the u.s. state of maryland the police have searched an apartment complex listed as

10:22 pm
united nations highest court at the hague qatar to the u.a.e. to the international court of justice accusing it of violating human rights as a result of the blockade imposed on too hard by the u.a.e. and three other countries last year qatar says companies and individuals have been denied access to education medicine and justice a barker has more from the hague. there was a tense legal battle underway at the moment casts of the u.a.e. do not see eye to eye over whether the i.c.j. should have the jurisdiction to continue with this case just to remind you the u.a.e. has been accused by cats are of violating the international convention on the eradication of all forms of racial discrimination which the u.a.e. is a key signatory and there are procedures to follow if there are accusations of violation of these key treaty firstly that the nations in question speak to each other directly in order to try and come to some sort of solution secondly that the
10:23 pm
complaint is referred to the committee in charge of this treaty and finally that it's referred here to the un's highest court consul argues that all of these stages have been fulfilled that it has attempted to have negotiations with the u.a.e. with the u.a.e. is simply ignored those attempts secondly qatar also argues that it's possible for these different stages to happen similar taney asli allowing therefore this case to be heard here at the i.c.j. the u.a.e. disputes that claiming that protocol hasn't been properly followed essentially accuses the u.a.e. of discrimination against its people of preventing qataris with the expulsion of them from the country from accessing assets property education health care and judicial services a little later on in the day the u.a.e. will have a chance to speak of to which the court here will decide exactly what to do next terry cadman is an international human rights lawyer he joins us now from london
10:24 pm
thank you very much for your time so mr president for this type of case if you. have to repeat the question are you sure i said is there a precedent for this type of case. well there are obviously the international court of justice has a as a long history of dealing with state state disputes this this case is particularly unique in in in the circumstances that surrounds the allegations that are being made by the state of qatar. as as quite rightly was reported to the u.a.e. is contesting jurisdiction. the state of qatar has put its arguments for would as to what they are effectively arguing and these are compelling arguments that been put forward and based on the fundamental principles of international law there have also been expert opinions recently by two leading international legal scholars who have clearly stated that the conduct force within the convention on the elimination
10:25 pm
of all forms of racial discrimination and got there is quite right when they state that the i.c.j. has jurisdiction it clearly does all forms to mediate failed the u.a.e. simply dismiss is that. and we expect them to say the same again today but it is likely that the i.c.j. as as a preliminary issue will will hold that it has jurisdiction to hear the claims if qatar. prevails and when is there a way to actually make. comply. well that's always going to be the big question once it goes to a substantive hearing and cut stablish is the the the allegations which which are well documented and well known it's unclear other than contesting jurisdiction what the u.a.e. will actually put forward whether they will put forward
10:26 pm
a lot of justification which is under like three to succeed but the big issue is in foresman of any future decision that the international court of justice issues and we know one of the leading cases from the i.c.j. relates to the the war in jerusalem that has not been implemented but of course there is diplomatic pressure that the state of qatar can bring on the u.a.e. they can take it to the u.n. general assembly. and the big question is whether u.a.e. wants to become more of a pariah state the the human rights violations that all persistently violated by the state to buy u.a.e. a well known well documented and it's a question of whether they are actually going to respect the ruling of the international court of justice they would be very foolish to think they can just ignore it and walk away from it ok i want to say on how this all plays out take had been joining us from london thank you very much. a twelve hour ceasefire in syria's
