5:08 pm
underreporting his income to the stock exchange this time the prosecutors are saying that he directly embezzled money from nissan for his personal benefit and that of his wife essentially he used a shell game of of companies to transfer nissan money into his own accounts so this is a more serious round of accusations made by the prosecutors my analysis is that it's far more likely that this is part of a boardroom coup and that and that. claims that he's essentially been set up does make a lot of sense so for example. if there were if the sons executives were concerned about his pay why did they never go to him and say we're concerned about your pay instead they immediately went to the prosecutors in order to have him charged with serious crimes thus hurting the entire company's reputation so it doesn't quite make sense that this is a straightforward criminal case. cars and their drivers patients are running on

indonesia those are the headlines on al-jazeera outfront up next to stay with this . country because this week libya's wealth is pitted east against west we take a look at the war economy how a conflict with russian backed fighters assert ukraine's most important economic region a white international investors are betting on a boat with india's election counting the cost on al-jazeera of up from today we'll debate britain's brics chaos has the whole thing been a huge mistake but first the u.s. congress has voted to end the u.s. involvement in the yemen war but will president donald trump allow the conflict to keep going with a veto earlier i spoke to yemen's nobel peace prize laureate to what bill cohen who has a message for trump she is this week's headliner. torkel
5:22 pm
common thank you for joining me on up front when you won the nobel peace prize in twenty eleven you were the first arab woman to do so at the age of thirty two you are one of the youngest of a nobel peace laureates what is it like today to be a nobel peace laureate from a country yemen that has been torn apart by war and conflict for so many years. it's really hard it's really hard for me as an open peace laureate and also as a one of the leaders of the peaceful revolution it's very really hard for all the yemeni people who sacrificed peacefully and made that great revolution peacefully and entered to the transitional period peacefully. but we are not the one who caused this war we are not the one who caused this kill us this cause and war is waged by the come to rebuild usually led by saudi and in madrid and iran who in
5:23 pm
your view is at the top of the list in terms of taking responsibility for the catastrophe in yemen we can blame all of them but there were the most important party or part of this conflict i believe in the saudi and you because they are behind the militia who you can't imagine that the one who encouraged to think militias before the iranian interfere or announcing that they are supporting houthi this is the saudi and emir that they thought that they can encourage to see to make the coup against the transitional authority so they will be able to destroy yemen and also to stop the on going movement to democracy so they made revenge against the in many people who made their peaceful revolution against against that ally against the loss of the. former president
5:24 pm
the same thing that they did in egypt in libya so they are the ones who behind the fire that finally said and also now they are the one who destroying yemen and who doesn't want to yemen to succeed they want yemen to stay as a failure canty so they will be able to continue that it could be a sham and hitmen it. so what i interviewed you last on the show four years ago you were quite reluctant to criticize. saudi arabia back then with regard to yemen at the time you were saying to journalists quote the majority of yemenis you said support the saudi led military intervention since then you seem to have done this kind of u. turn now you're saying saudi arabia is to blame for the humanitarian suffering now you're calling saudi arabia and the u.a.e. occupiers you call them stupid fools recently in an address what made you change your mind and saudi arabia look. well it was really the most of the yemeni doesn't want to criticize the saudi interfered in the beginning in the beginning of the
5:25 pm
their interfering because they announced that they came to face the militia or coup and they are pretending to returned. to the country so that was this scene at the time i didn't publicly support saudi intervention in yemen absolutely i don't and i want because their policy in yemen that one in yemen should be weak that is the only way that saudi will the strong so i didn't you know. i didn't support them but also i was calling the international community to be responsible and to fulfill and they're supporting the man and also implementing the security council resolutions because what happened in yemen also not just the result of saudi him or it's and iran it's also because of the complicity from the international community they sponsored the dizzy initiative but very let's also
5:26 pm
hoses to interest in yemen and they didn't make anything and also until now they support saudi and the minute selling them the women's and killing a man is while they don't you know do any really great any real force to stop this war you critics or the world to walk a communist criticizing saudi arabia now but they point to leaked cables that show that you said to the saudis you're a natural ally as you were calling for saudi support in private that's what your critics yes and i still call for that they are more our neighbor they should be the allies of yemen is and they should. change their policy and their bed view to yemen is so yemen is the national security of all the region and all the all the world so any collapsing any destroying yemen yemen if it will be real. hill country that one can love the region and security and also the international security so yes i'm calling saudi i'm going to oman i'm going to all the religion and calling us and
5:27 pm
calling so that day should be with the amen so we do then as a light not as an end if you could send a message directly to mohamed bin psalm on the saudi crown prince who has been a driving force behind this war from the very beginning as crown prince as defense minister what would you say to him. i will tell him that he is a criminal i want a third ask anything from me seven because he is destroying my country mohammed man said man and mohammad instead they should be trialed in the international criminal court because they are committed to the war crimes in my country last year you referred to saudi arabia in the u.a.e. as having a very ugly occupation and ugly influence in yemen shortly afterwards he was suspended from the yemeni political party that you were part of that's been allied with president hadi at one point that is often described in the west as a muslim brotherhood party is that the reason you were suspended from the party because you criticized the saudis are you still
5:28 pm
a member of that part yes they tried to suspend me and to freeze my membership but i told them who freeze room because they are there this issue is being kidnapped by the saudis i want brigitte it also is kidnapped by the south so all of the political decision in yemen it even if it's with the police then fill in a level all with the parties is could not buy sell and the most important thing for us as a yemeni if we want to make the peace in yemen we should fill our political decision given western governments like the u.k. and the u.s. are supporting and arming the saudi led coalition in yemen are they also quote stupid fools who are among those responsible for the suffering in your country of course saudi and the u.a.e. stupid fools what about their western backers they are so stupid as well that way either they are stupid phones or they are conspiring with them so they are
5:29 pm
participating in killing yemenis the u.s. and the u.k. of course u.s. and u.k. participating in killing him in it or any other countries the third thing. is to saudi and emirates or also any other country that supports iran to this. send or export would best to the host is so and they really u.s. and u.k. should stop their selling weapons to saudi and immunity for many many reasons for the fairer sex for fairness is because of the humanitarian issue here many people being killed yemen now under the fair mean because of this and the world and also because of the security of the world in the they are really concerned about the secure the peace and the security around the world they should stop this war because this war will can love sit in yemen in this very important geographic.
5:30 pm
political place and that it will increase rebellions terrorists burger t. refuses it cetera et cetera so here is the unknown i think that they don't think in a good way not just in yemen by the way they are allying with the dictators in arab spring countries and that is the big mistake that the west is committed so aligning with the dictators that means that you are all you are destroying the safety and the security around the world you you say they should stop the war bruce reidel a former cia officer a middle east expert he said if the united states of america and the united kingdom tonight told king solomon of saudi arabia that this war has to end it would end tomorrow do you agree with him of course i agree with this but unfortunately most of the countries special u.s. and u.k. they put the interest above the their values there but also with that they are wrong because they had should know that they should make allies the people of the
5:31 pm
dictators the dictators will go today tomorrow after one month when year two years but the people who are dreaming for freedom a second fighting for democracy they should they should they are should they should be the one who made the lies with them so donald trump president your state soon. may have a bill a law on his desk but he can either sign or veto which would u.s. involvement in the yemen war a group of bipartisan senators democrats republicans have helped pass a bill through the house in the senate to stop u.s. involvement some say he might veto that bill because he's so close to saudi arabia what's your message to donald trump my methods do resent around you are looking for accomplishment in new your presidency period this company will be really if you stop the war in yemen and that is very important and you are the one who can do it so i'm calling him to stop the war in yemen he can do it more than
5:32 pm
making the nuclear agreement with north korea but that from but ministration itself isn't so keen on stopping the war u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o has said that the hoofy group in yemen the militia and iran are to blame for yemen's humanitarian crisis he doesn't blame the saudis are you worried that your country is stuck in the middle of some clash between america saudi on one side iran on the other yemen under the book see what this is exactly and also saudi emir it's iran and the superpowers behind them but also i don't want to exclude who he is because these are really committed to big crimes in yemen they are the same they are committed to the war career crimes in yemen they were used they accepted to be the truth even though they've beaten the terms of saudi and immunity in their getting all then to do that iran but if both sides are committing war crimes which is what human rights groups
5:33 pm
say can there ever be justice for ordinary yemenis because at some stage one of those two sides is going to be in charge of your country so i'm calling them. who is from one side and also islam from one side if we really want as yemeni to mix solution by ourselves without interference from outside countries who theories and islam should sit together and decide and to. reconciliate and make something another step for peace in yemen and just before we finish you were a close friend of the murdered saudi journalist democracy do you hold the crown prince of saudi arabia mohamed bin salma responsible for his killing of course mohammad minson man is responsible of killing the german hotshot which is the highest power in the saudi and this kind of crimes will not happen without his permission and also i'm not just telling talking about general had.
