the prime minister's 5 week suspension of parliament was unlawful judges describe the government's suspension as a tactic to frustrate parliament the decision from scotland's highest court was unanimous the british government said he would appeal against the rule. each opinion expresses the view that the advice given by the government to her majesty the queen to prove parliament from once the 14th of october was unlawful and that therefore the prohibition itself is unlawful. of more on this let's go to a general holder who is live in london for so general tell us more about the court's decision here well it's been hailed by opponents of the government as an incredibly strong and important legal decision downing street of the country of tweeted that it is a disappointing decision for the unanimous decision by scotland's highest court in the matter of whether johnson legally prorogue parliament finding that he didn't
10:01 pm
and finding that he did so motivated and these are the crucial words by the improper purpose of stymieing parliament. and in terms of the advice that he gave to the queen the court finding that that advice was motivated by this purpose now that has. created a storm of controversy here of course with opposition parties insisting that parliament be recalled immediately some suggesting johnson should resign if it if he did in fact deliberately mislead the queen there's a twitter storm over the partiality or others of the judges it doesn't say that anything's going to happen immediately downing street says the government will not recall parliament and least until it's heard from the supreme court and that's because the government is appealing this decision to the supreme court next week in parallel a separate appeal to an english high court decision that found in favor of boris johnson is also happening at the supreme court next week so down the street i think for the moment content to wait and see what the supreme court comes back with into

10:05 pm
illegal israeli settlements in the occupied west bank is being widely condemned the arab league called the move an aggression and says it would torpedo the foundations of peace in the region jordan's foreign minister a month or 30 called the plan a serious escalation and he's warning it would push the region towards more violence and turkish foreign minister a member of cover so to condemn the plan as racist he's criticizing benjamin netanyahu for issuing what he calls illegal and unlawful messages how the force it has more from west jerusalem. benjamin netanyahu has a habit of promising dramatic announcements in the run up to elections and he did so again on tuesday when it came it was not a unilateral decision about amec sation as some had predicted instead the message to right wing settler voters was a vote for netanyahu would in concert with the trumpet ministration mean extending israeli sovereignty to all illegal settlements in the occupied west bank and in the shorter term the annexation of the jordan valley yes. there is one place
10:06 pm
where it's possible to apply israeli sovereignty immediately after the election if i receive a clear mandate to do so from you the citizens of israel in recent months of little diplomatic effort in this direction in recent days the conditions for this have ripened today i'm announcing my intention to apply with the formation of the next government israeli sovereignty on the jordan valley and nor going to see. the jordan valley represent some 30 percent of the occupied west bank and some of its most fertile agricultural land israeli policy has long been that it needs to retain control there for national security but the prospect of a unilateral israeli annexation as netanyahu is promising would explode any faint remaining hopes of a viable palestinian state alongside israel giving palestinians and there's a small towns and villages as prisoners without any freedom that is a war crime and as about as we are about to enter the 74th session or the general
10:07 pm
assembly of the united nations that the national community must stand now. to see a big noise and to stop the thing is that as a country above the laws of man at the united nations there was further condemnation such a prospect would be devastating to the potential of reviving negotiations regional peace and the very essence of a 2 state solution but there is a hugely important caveat to all this to enact his plan now you know 1st has to win the election then create a right wing coalition government that would in dorset and then push it through in the face of international pressure and by then and intensifying battle against his own corruption charges israelis have heard him talk annexation before without following through that's a point political opponents and political analysts were making even before netanyahu had finished talking this is electioneering at its best there is no connection between what the prime minister said today and what's going to happen after the election whether he's elected or not this is what i like to say is
10:08 pm
israeli elections are very much like las vegas and hotels in las vegas what happens during israeli elections stays in israeli elections. later at another campaign event in southern israel netanyahu was briefly rushed from the stage sirens sounding the israeli military said rockets had been fired out of gaza a dramatic end to a day when whether he makes good on it or not he confirmed his position as one entirely at odds with the 2 state solution the concept that remains the international consensus on how the israeli palestinian conflict should end very force an al-jazeera west jerusalem a need abraham has more now from ramallah in the occupied west bank. the palestinian president mahmoud abbas said that if israel moves forward with its plans to annex parts of the occupied west bank then he will end all agreements signed with israel and their domestic ations this is not the 1st time for him to wage such threats however the feeling here among palestinian officials is that this
10:09 pm
is not an elections campaign and they believe that this has been a coordinated step with the u.s. administration p.l.o. executive committee member at hand and i said i always said that this is a game changer this is a serious threat to peace and security and she said it shows the intention the long term intention by the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu for ethnic cleansing other palestinian officials have called on the international community to intervene saying it's up to the world to defend its rules. i mean when israel has launched a series of airstrikes on gaza the israeli army says 15 targets were hit it says the strikes were in response to rockets launched from gaza on tuesday there were no reports of casualties. south korea is taking its dispute with japan to the world trade organization it says japan's restrictions on materials used in tech products like smart phones are politically motivated restrictions imposed in

10:24 pm

10:27 pm
and the taliban but with negotiations dead for now the government is pushing ahead shala bellus reports from kabul. newly arrived on a chartered flight and onto the streets of kabul this particular cargo is extremely valuable. to move it to the afghan government has ordered an armed escort of. the trucks carrying items needed to hold the presidential election scheduled for september the 28th the 1st batch of election material is heavily guarded because the convoy is a potential target for the taliban who don't want to see the election go ahead. everyone knows the television is trying to create problems they conduct explosions in suicide attacks to stop the vote that's why it's our duty to school these important materials and get them here safely. here is afghanistan's election
10:28 pm
commission it too was heavily guarded before entering the compound trucks each through a checkpoint with sniffer dogs looking for explosives. within the cargo is blue intel of the ink they needed to ensure no one votes twice it's also symbolic a visible declaration of what side of the war afghans are on these are the 1st crates of blowing that have arrived security is so tight. election officials cannot tell us where they came from or when they'll be distributed across afghanistan's 34 provinces in fact to open one of the bottles 3 election officials would have to be present the whole it's a proud moment and it's a good response to all of those who don't want to lecture like the taliban the public are going out to choose their future leader they're facing a lot of risk yet they're going to the ballot boxes and voting for a better future. indelible ink was 1st used to prevent voter fraud during elections
10:29 pm
in 2004 it has become a symbol of defiance the taliban have cast off the ink stained index fingers dozens of versions in the past it's all about the horses or when i color my finger with the blue in the symbol of peace whereas if you have i participate in elections to secure my future in afghanistan is a moment of pride for me and all citizens i encourage to use by showing my stained finger even of my being or will be cut off i will still go to vote. right. now it's just a matter of getting the materials to polling stations securely so voters can choose the next president. of dallas al-jazeera kabul. a judge in india has heard evidence from a woman from her hospital bed 2 years after she accused a former legislator couldn't keep seeing single is accused of raping the woman in
10:30 pm
2017 when he was 15 he also faces a murder charge over a car accident but hospitalized the woman trial is one of many sexual assault cases in india that has course public outrage the kidnap and rape of an 8 year old girl in 2018 year drew angry protest figures from 2016 show there were 40000 rapes registered an average of about 100 a day. and i speak now to indian supremes court we hear a suit who joins us via skype now from new delhi thanks very much for being with us so just give us your thoughts then on this particular case and how it figures into the whole debate about rape in india and this culture of seeming culture of impunity there. yes well and i think one important thing to consider is that of all the thousands of cases that of sexual assault do happen in india
10:31 pm
there there are 2 always going to be a few that for whatever reason stand out grab the attention of the media and grab the attention of the public so i think we have to keep in mind firstly that this case is just is just one of many and there are many more stories like this that are not even being told. which should just give you an idea of how bad the situation really is and yet how precarious it is for women and girls here. and i think stands out in this case in particular. is the fact that there is really not protection for people coming forward to testify whether they are survivors or witnesses because what you have in this case is a political politically powerful person. who has been able to use his power and influence to compromise the survivors security arrangements and to
10:32 pm
threaten browbeat and actually assault and in some cases kill the witnesses and lawyers supporting cook so either through a city. situation of incentivizing people do with drop their cases or threatening and intimidating them to do so what you have is a situation where pieces don't tend to get prosecuted to the fullest extent and that's where the political power and the impunity really comes in because people know that they can get away with it so what's the solution then is it in acting as tougher laws or is it is it more than that is it doesn't require a whole changing in attitude and culture see i think as far as laws are concerned we have very stringent laws on people. but the problem lies in the their poor implementation and the fact that you've not really trained it sensitize the people responsible for that implementation whether it is the law
10:33 pm
enforcement studies the police or whether it is the lower judiciary where the actual trial is than done that is the 1st post sort of point of contact for a survival with the legal system. and we have to remember that the people implementing this at these levels come from the same society as the people actually committing these crimes so beyond a point law is not really the one stop solution that it is made out to be what we need is better social awareness and sensitize ation and as far as laws are concerned we really ought to be focusing on. better witness protection and protection for survivors so that they are not afraid to testify. good to speak.
