2:01 pm
gaza border israeli troops use live fire on the house in the end protesters as more and more than a dozen are wounded it's another in a series of planned rallies against the territory of a decade old blockade. i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program catalan separatist leader carlos pushed him on has walked out of a german jail pushed among posted bail and the public prosecutor ordered his immediate release a regional court in germany has pulled it will not extradite pushed him on on charges of rebellion but the court is considering a lesser charge of misusing funds for which he could still face extradition. and here is what carlos pushed him on said to reporters on release just
2:02 pm
a few minutes ago have a listen. i could force beat even if you had to really for all of my colleagues still in the span of three feet a shade for europe to have reason. to go through russia in europe young people to achieve faced off the few both fit nation of ours feast and human rights that kind of received easy and free speech. so for more on this let's bring in our correspondent simon young who has been following all of this from the very beginning so simon him saying they're in europe having political prisoners does he have a point what do you make of the speech that he just gave yeah a defiant his push the moment there is he appears before the world's media has been huge interest in this appearance today off the court decided to release him. and yet he's defiant he's saying there that you know there is concern around europe not
2:03 pm
just in spain he's claiming about the development of democracy he says people are worried about a wave of soft democracy crushing the union was what he went on to say he didn't take questions so we don't know exactly what he meant by that how far he wants to take this but he went on to say that now is the time for a dialogue so far he and his catalan separatists have only received violent and repressive responses from the madrid government he says it's time to do politics and to find a political solution to the to the struggle in there between catalans oh no it was for the separatist movement i think not according to his rhetoric there so he is now free but not entirely right he's free to you know go about his business but the court has said that you know in addition to the seventy five thousand euro bio that he's had to pay he also has to stay in germany and make
2:04 pm
himself available to the court if they want to speak to him again the court has thrown out the idea that calls posed not could be extradited to spain on the charge of rebellion because there is no similar charge they say under german law but that still leaves the lesser charge of this use of public funds that he used in order to hold that controversial referendum in catalonia as. and on that the code is still looking at the details and could still extradite him and as they look at the details i mean just a quick reminder because extradition is ultimately what spain wants and they've been dealt a bit of a blow to. you know that desire at the moment what has all of this done between relations between spain and germany well the german government has been saying that it hasn't affected those relations significantly the german government spokesman today saying well you know it's never been a question for the government is purely
2:05 pm
a matter for the justice system i think behind that you can see that you know there's a certain amount of relief in berlin you know the wheels of german justice have turned here have decided that you know there's no charge to answer a rebellion and the point is that that is key because even down down the line when push to more returns to spain as it surely he eventually will he can't at least under this. extradition warrant he cannot be tried for rebellion and that's really the big one that's the charge that could send him to jail for decades the court where he was just released as a slave because time and the north of germany do we know were pushed mungo's next year he's had to give the court an address where he's going to be contactable in germany as i say presumably in the north of germany so that he's available to police and to the court should they want to speak to him but that that address is not been released to us yet maybe we'll get more details in the coming hours

2:07 pm
a string of south korean policy political and business leaders to face jail and disgrace the corruption scandal has divided the nation. after four years in power twenty four years in prison the judge said park had shown no remorse for her crimes including multiple charges of coercion bribery and abuse of power. south koreans watched the sentence handed down on live television for some it wasn't punishment enough. and it was over and i had hoped that former president park would attend the hearing it's a shame she was sentenced to twenty four years in jail but i was expecting more and i think she deserves thirty years in jail. to disgraced former president of voided court claiming illness but chose to remain in the detention center where she's being held she has always denied the charges against her. it's been over a year since park was forced from office under
2:08 pm

2:10 pm
a lot of people are coming no actually off to noon prayers you see a lot of people now coming to us to go to areas where all kind of people are there women and. men and especially young men are all down in the border area now. what is their mood tanya because we know that a at a protest just like the one that you're referring to sixteen people were killed last week is there a sense of fear or defiance. well i think it's i mean it depends who you talk to because i have been talking to a lot of people and of course people saying i don't want my son or my teenage son going down there parents saying that you can see the people coming here and they're quite defiant and you see that all week you know people like us being down in order to see what's going on today the second day of protests and a lot of the young people i talked to they said you know we have nothing to lose and now the world just looking at us and want to say. you know gaza has been closed
