5:04 pm
united states is planning a coup against him what do you say to that that's all theories that he has been as well as of east who we are facing that issue in a quote every day with a hundred thousands of immigrants that are coming through our border colombia is also facing the venezuelan issue every day so there isn't proof over three million people three million people have been as we left been as well in the last two years at least and it is clear that the only way to solve their own as well i'm problem is with democracy in the countries missing that venezuela has expelled the german ambassador now what does that tell us about whether this conflict is hotting up those are issues between venezuela and germany we don't have an opinion on that i know that germany is also backing in recognizing one way doors as president in term of venezuela and in that sense we're all together in the contact group even with
5:05 pm
venezuela working on solutions for them as well and people finally how destabilizing he's these conflicts for the region generally it's the biggest. migration issue that we have seen in in many years maybe in decades in latin america i cannot even think about another comparable with an issue like that one as i told you colombia alone has over one and a half million call it even as well and immigrants in colombia we have around four hundred thousand per our own eight hundred thousand chile these are people that are willing to go buy food from venezuela to chile i mean kendry magine the situation that they're leaving in venezuela so it's it is a big issue and we are thankful for all the support that we get from the international community in order to handle this issue you hopeful that it can be solved without violence. we are not here we will not back a military intrusion as well or against that we think there would not be a solution so we're working on the democratic solution thank you very much and that
5:06 pm
was auto zone and how it's now ecuador's vice president talking to simon young but here in germany one of the cases of child sexual abuse on the so-called dark match has ended with long jail sentences the puppetry it is a courtroom was handed down prison sentences off between three and ten years to four men accused of operating a platform called the elysium it was one such one of the largest such websites worldwide until investigators shut it down in june two thousand and seventeen. it took prosecutors months to gather the evidence the four men were accused of setting up and operating a child pornography platform on the darkness and investigators said the men had managed the illegal pornographic content on the elysium network that's meant to be out of us of the material posted on elysium showed every kind of abuse imaginable of children and teenagers and always played on the victims included newborns and
5:07 pm
babies the platform was discovered in twenty seventeen and immediately shut down the case made international headlines due to the large number of subscribers investigators found one hundred twelve thousand user accounts paedophiles around the world were offered photos and videos of the worst kind of child abuse on a platform operated from germany prosecutors said the network allowed the exchange of illegal material to be as easy as online shopping investigators will continue to sit through the evidence and work with international authorities to bring additional prosecutions. that would have used chief political correspondent and a crane is following that story and joins me now melinda the convicted men received jail terms of between three and ten yes what has been the basis of those sentences . they were convicted of possessing and publishing child pornography and in the case of one defendant he was also convicted of having molested children himself and
5:08 pm
then uploaded images of those acts to this website the sentences actually somewhat exceeded the sentences that prosecutors had asked for nonetheless some child protection n.g.o.s here in germany are saying that the sentences in their opinion aren't aren't as hard as they would have wanted to see now we have some a distressing details in our report tell us more about the investigation which came out of the corporation between germany and australia that's right there was a tip off from australian investigators who had been working to uncover and expose a website there called the gift box and in their work they came across a german who was involved in that site and who subsequently became one of the people who administered this particular site called elysium and so they did indeed work closely with the german police and that is perhaps not surprising given the
5:09 pm
fact that these operations like so much else on the web are global of those hundred ten thousand users of italy's young many were also in other countries and therefore the cooperation with fishelson other places was absolutely critical and i think it's also important to note that the german police work together with a platform called chapped box which they praised in fact when the arrests were first made saying that it had been very helpful to them well one reason that it was helpful is that chap box was working under u.s. law which required shot box to immediately inform authorities of any suspect content on that site that would be much more difficult under german data protection laws right melinda is chief political correspondent thank you very much. with not being up to date with some other stories making news around the world

hopes iraq has learned its lesson. hungary is to take on big bullets attacking european commission president. and billionaire philanthropist george soros the move comes off the conservative european people spotty of which hungary is a member said the billboards crossed a red line the posters depict and sold us as leaders of the conspiracy to promote mass migration to europe the head of the european people's party called the post as fake news and said there was no such conspiracy many a p.p. members have court for on giving prime minister viktor orban and this party to be expelled for the very latest we're joined by correspondent stefan both who is in budapest shivan firstly why has viktor orbán finally decided to pull down those controversial post like the one behind you. well of course under depress your.
5:15 pm
own grouping of course that was one of the main reasons why he's putting it down but i have to say he is going to replace poster we saw a poster showing the vice president of the european commission did he use except he did and his name is from steimle stet man will also be shown soon on posters here so it isn't over yet at the moment and this post behind because a lot of anger in brussels does this issue have implications for the european elections coming up this summer well i certainly think it has a blue cations. name picked because hungary a promise to viktor orban really tries to get voters behind him days away there are many people in hungary actually still supporting his views only migration and of course this pollster says all about we have to defend ourselves against muslim migrants that he says the european union is forcing form hungary and the rest of
5:16 pm

effort to get allies to shun the firm threatens to bar the company from major markets and puts billions of dollars of investment in super high speed five g. networks out of risk it also adds tension to an already complicated trade relationship between the world's top two economies. now for this book see lock zuckerberg says his company dance to shift its focus to private messaging services in a post on his own profile page said the company would encrypt conversations on more of his messaging services and make them compatible he said that increasingly want to connect privately in the digital equivalent often livingroom. audition report and shouted read is with us and welcome jad i'm not quite sure what mock secular is trying to do can explain what his plans say what's he up to so we
5:19 pm
marry facebook really as a networking tool that can mix people all around the world and now mark zuckerberg kind of has he's our eyes set on what we say in private to each other on the messaging services that facebook owns so platforms like whatsapp facebook and facebook messenger and instagram and he wants to make those compatible with each other as you say sorry if you write to me on whatsapp i'd be able to ride back to you on facebook and missing and he wants to add a layer of security to this as well by making what we say the message is encrypted and that basically manes are only able to be read by the person they're intended for so facebook wouldn't be out to get its hands on those messages and it wants to copy something that snapchat is doing whereby the messages would also delete after a certain period of time and i guess facebook's tapping into what is a growing messaging market because its traditional business being
5:20 pm
a social network isn't growing as fast as the messaging market so this is kind of part of the reason why he's doing this so facebook is trying to meet more privacy fendi but in the past facebook and privacy haven't privacy hasn't been a strong suit of facebook facebook's had a pretty shocking time of it in the last little while when it comes to privacy i mean we just have to look at the cambridge analytic a scandal as an example where some eighty seven million people dot it ended up in the hands of a political consultant see that worked for donald trump but it's got bigger problems too you know the russian interfering in the election speech abuse and extremism mark zuckerberg has had to go in front of various panels like congress and the european parliament to to defend himself and he's got a bit of a. challenge to convince us all that he's serious about privacy and also ward off the coals up every now and again people saying that facebook should be regulated he
5:21 pm
wants i guess to stop that too what i need to point out though is that when facebook encrypts private messages to each other on its platforms it's still got everything else like it can still monitor what we do on facebook and elsewhere on the internet and work out how best to target ads to us to sell us things and that's how it makes its money so this is just really one one part of the story that's the extent to me that is its business model is what critics say so about this latest move when it comes to private messaging people pointing out the fact that just two years ago facebook said its goal would be to make the world more open and connected and now we've got to believe it's wants to do the opposite so people saying well hang on a minute. others are saying mark zuckerberg is trying to ward off competition regulators because they kind of want facebook to stop sharing dotter across these messaging platforms and if it can merge them into one then maybe he can get around the competition regulators so people are
5:22 pm
a bit suspicious about it but they are saying he might be just be jumping on the privacy bandwagon to keep facebook being the dominant player in this messaging market because billions of people use it i found a funny tweet it said facebook putting a focus on privacy is like a fast food company prioritizing healthy eating so bit of skepticism and we have to see how it plays out fascinating stuff joe drape thank you very much. now the use section three for homeland security has defended president donald trump's decision to declare a national emergency on the mexican border in testimony to congress committee kristin neeson describe the situation there as a real crisis a testimony came a day after u.s. customs and border protection released new data on illegal border crossings. the department of homeland security presented photos and data to show that illegal immigration has reached a level that makes it
