cox's bazaar you have nearly a 1000000 working the refugees there the fact is they are still suffering they're suffering greatly the conditions in those camps have been greatly improved and when i 1st visited them in october 2017 the infrastructure is much more improved there are roads there are dams they try to protect the most vulnerable from the elements but just in the past couple of weeks you had torrential downpours monsoon season greatly affecting the rain the refugees in those camps because of that thousands of in this place and a population that is amongst the most vulnerable populations in the world they are even the situation's even more park for terry is for them i mean we're just hearing from town. in the bangladeshi capital about this i.c.c. delegation that survived how difficult is it going to be for them to stop a case is a complicated process daryn because 1st you had the i.c.c. rule that they would have jurisdiction and the way that they have jurisdiction in this isn't through me anymore because myanmar is not a signatory to the rome statute so they are not a member of the international criminal court the way that the i.c.c.
2:33 pm
gets jurisdiction is to bangladesh because bangladesh is a member of the international criminal court a signatory to the rome statute but even that is riddled with complications what we've seen in the past few weeks is that the prosecutor for the international criminal court she has put in an official request with the panel of judges in order to formally launch an investigation into the alleged atrocities against the regime go how long this will take in order for a decision to be made we just don't know at this point now you have this delegation that has arrived this is the 2nd time i believe that a delegation from the i.c.c. has arrived in bangladesh to try to follow up on the allegations to get more information but what's going to happen exactly next we're just not sure just a final thought before you go i mean how is min mas military like them like to react over the announcement of these sanctions from the u.s. look at till now me and more most of the time has denied the allegations that they committed war crimes they committed atrocities that's something that they've been consistent in doing when those allegations have been leveled. against them now one
2:34 pm
particular point of interest in the statement that was made by secretary u.s. secretary of state mike pompei oh is that one of the things that outraged the state department most in deciding to impose these sanctions is learning that the soldiers that were convicted in me and mar of committing this mass killing in the village of india in that they had been set free after only a few months in prison that means that the reporters the pulitzer prize winning reporters that were jailed for uncovering that atrocity wallow in and in that means that they spent more time in jail than those officials and mean more than this military official so that's one thing that really angered the u.s. that really showcase to them that man mars military wasn't taking any of this very seriously it will be interesting to see if they reply if they come up with some kind of statement because these sanctions are now being imposed but i wouldn't expect it any time soon all right mohammed thank you. all right time for short break here now is iraq when we come back the u.s. house condemns president trump for racist comments against 4 congresswoman plus.

to west from south to north. as a german a woman and a close ally of angle a merkel on the line will be seen as an extension of the chancellor's dominant role in european politics she owes her career to merkel and like merkel she's a political conservative and a passionate supporter of european integration. but big spending promises designed to sway down to any peace are a departure and may prove hard to fulfill we must take bold steps to get mrs ford a lion is indebted for their support to opposing quarters from the socialists to the nationalists which means someone will have to be disappointed supporters in the heavyweight center right european people's party bloc to which belongs brushed those concerns aside she managed to get the support of $27.00 out of $28.00 heads of government in the european union so western europeans eastern europeans were
2:40 pm
supporting her representatives from the different political families and what she also managed to do is together with us to bring france and germany closer back together the french german cooperation is not everything in the good opinion that's sure but without a close friend german cooperation things really don't move forward in the european union among the promises. has made is reform of the very electoral process that had failed to produce a democratically elected candidate with her name emerging instead from behind closed doors as the preferred pick of e.u. heads of government and state it's not only far right populists talking about a democratic deficit in the e.u. anymore many other m.e. peas are saying it as well. and try as she might to be the consensus candidate for all her promise of a green climate deal for europe wasn't enough to sway the greens what is the deal for europe can you explain that to me i can't well if you can't i can't either i

2:43 pm
record then another moment of drama for the 1st time a formal attempt in the house to move articles of impeachment against the president impeaching donald jiang trump president of the united states of higher misdemeanors the move is likely to intensify what has been at the bait among house democrats about impeachment more than 80 representatives are on record as urging such a move others including the house speaker have been arguing that it would be better to continue investigating the president through house committees rather than risk a failed move to impeach therefore donnel john traub by causing such harm to the society of the united states is unfit to be president and warrants impeachment trial and removal from office.
