6:02 pm
by our chief political correspondent lyndal crean at our elementary students linda what more can you tell us about this move above it is very. well venezuela declared to the ambassador persona non grata on grounds that he had interfered in domestic politics and certainly the ambassador has had some pretty clear words of support for one why don't know as interim president of venezuela after some initial hesitation germany together with other e.u. member countries did acknowledge or recognize mystical ideal as interim president months ago in the beginning of february and we can hear a brief sound bite from the german ambassador after that in which he strongly expressed his support for mr goh i don't know because my daughter knows what i mean not only does nicolas maduro lack the democratic legitimacy necessary to do
6:03 pm
politics but he negates the humanitarian situation in venezuela which is worse than the situation in government representatives wanted to suggest to us that the humanitarian crisis is nothing more than a fabrication like research money thought of your food and they have done that many times in the past so you see it on the basis. by recognizing one as the interim president germany recognizes at the same time legitimate authority of the country you months before use. so quite strong words there from the german ambassador and the fact is that a premature recognition of a new leader under international law could be seen as a form of interference in domestic politics but the fact is here this recognition occurred several weeks ago that statement that we just heard several weeks ago but
6:04 pm
the venezuelan government is only now taking action which is why many people here believe although the venezuelan government didn't clearly state it that this particular expulsion of a diplomat has everything to do with out appearance at the airport that you mentioned in your introduction because in fact the german ambassador not only went there with other ambassadors from the latin american region and also other european ambassador ambassador he spoke to the press at the airport and had again very clear words of support for one so there's much reason to believe that in fact venezuela is making an example of the german ambassador here also as a warning to other international diplomats perhaps to lay off the support for mr why do as interim president a lot of that news of the jhelum diplomats expulsion by venezuela is only just emerging but hasn't german government reacted the german government has simply
6:05 pm

6:06 pm
are leaving the group's final enclave in the village of bongos in eastern syria. children caught up in islamic state leave behind a world many of them were born into. most are now all friends and face an uncertain future. while some may be handed over to aid agencies there are concerns about the fate of the older boys in particular. a report by human rights watch says around fifteen hundred children are being held on terrorism charges over the border in iraq some claim they've been tortured this teenager says he has the scars to prove it at sixteen he was arrested for alleged links to i.a.s. and held for twenty two months. tortured me using plastic pipes. they said confess what you with all yes. i told them i wasn't.
6:07 pm
forced me to confess that they put out cigarettes on me. this woman's thirteen year old son is still missing i mean him and my son has nothing to do with i asked he was not trained by us but people thought he was because his father was. the iraqi police said it's just an interview and we'll bring him back he's been gone for four months i want to know what happened to him is he alive or dead. human rights watch says thousands of children were recruited by i.a.s. in iraq as the jihad is took over large swathes of the country some were forced to join others did so because they were hungry or felt they had no other choice. i think evacuation from islamic states final enclave continues this report is a timely reminder that up at three child detentions violate international.
6:08 pm
not with me in the studio i have a wenzel mikulski he's a director of human rights watch in germany welcome mr mccance key the first of four what is the basis of your concerns about these children in iraq well actually the fact that they are to turn there are children who have been tortured who have been mistreated and who have no chance to be really happy to take to or reintegrated into their society even when they are released from prison many of them don't have to go home because the ice is affiliation whether it's true or not brants them as president on crutches ok so how do you mean talking to the iraqi government and the local authorities about this condition how responsive have they been to you they haven't been very responsive so far that's why we publish the report and hope that there will be international pressure on the government of iraq but also on the kurdistan region to treat those children according to international
6:09 pm
juvenile justice standards because even if they have done something horrible then they can be tried on completely different standards than for example it does so because we don't know in what kind of circumstances these children were drafted into the i.a.s. so explain this juvenile justice system how does that work well it works like a grown up justice system but it takes into calculation that these people are children that they're not make sure that their brains are still developing and according to these standards the fines very much lower but what is asked of even more concern is the reports of torture. and the conditions in the prison so children are imprisoned together with adults in iraq in the kurdish prisons the situation is better. and that is obviously going to have
6:10 pm
a disturbing development given as you said this shouldn't be probably traumatized from what they've been through anyway now who should then take responsibility for enforcing the juvenile justice system is it up to the country or do international organizations need to get involved where we all have a responsibility for us and mostly it's the country itself but the north of the international community the u.n. member states they have a responsibility because it's a human rights abuse human rights are globally so we hope that our government the german government will put pressure on the iraqi government to change the situation and how difficult is it to mccoskey to reintegrate in reality if these children into normal society after an experience like that what has rights watch learn from the other examples the child soldiers have been used in certain conflicts we have. nobody we haven't found anyone who has been integrated or we have militated because
6:11 pm
there is no program they are either in prison or they are released and then these kids on their own and india know that whether they will be accepted back into their communities and into their families after being associated with a stigma of being involved with the so-called islamic state or having been in prison that's the problem they're not being accepted by families on neighbors and their community and so that's why many many children don't have to go home because they fear for the lives them so of a difficult situation because key directive human rights watch here in germany thank you for shedding light on this issue. let me now bring you up to date with some other stories making news around the world police in the u.k. have carried out a controlled explosion on a package sent to scotland's glasgow university the package had early of course buildings to be evacuated and classes canceled essex university in england was also
