so millions can live. this is the w. news life from germany jails child pornographers full man received sentences of up to ten years of operation one of the world's biggest child abuse platforms on the top and also on the program germany's ambassador expelled from venezuela for backing opposition leader one quieter the self-proclaimed interim president also has the support of ecuador the country's vice president tells. us is life
a state really as harmful as its makers say we may soon find out and a new guy courts or says officials must release studies on the safety of the cops social we will hear from one of the lawmakers who helped bring the case. i mean a tourist inspiration for design address in thailand a look at sea change the fashion craze sweeping into thai pop culture. i'm phil gayle welcome to the program. we start in germany where the trial of wall of the worst a case of child sexual abuse on the so-called dock and that has ended a regional court handed down prison sentences of up to ten years to four men who operated a massive child pornography platform one of the defendants was also found guilty of physical child abuse and may be kept in preventative detention after his sentence
ends the platform called elysium was one of the biggest child abuse pornography websites in the world until investigators closed it down two years ago it took prosecutors months to gather the evidence the four men were accused of setting up and operating a child pornography platform on the dark night investigators said the men have managed the illegal pornographic content on the elysium network that's not to be out of us of the material posted on elysium showed every kind of abuse imaginable of children and teenagers about and i was playing on the victims included newborns and 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 he's as online shopping investigators will continue to sift through the evidence and work with international authorities to bring additional prosecutions. during a phone why is there a psychologist and director of the i g o innocence in danger which off i spread of child pornography on the web welcome to day doubly so this is the case a so many of these these horrible cases which which is happened on the dark web where investigators just lucky to stumble across it yes actually there were because the dark web is a vast web of many things going on and law enforcement does not have necessarily the manpower or the resources to seriously tackle everything going on in the darkness so we must recalls that lead and. beat be chasing baby always be two three steps behind these people. well i think that's the nature of crime is that they just do what they want to do and law enforcement has to by law so yes
most of the time you pretty much are. the sentences that were up to ten years it's quite a harsh sentences do do harsh sentences deter people in involved in this sort of thing. maybe they might deter people who are starting to think about of using children but i think it's not only about deterring people but it's also a sign for survivors to say you know what happened to you was really a terrible crime and people are going to jail for that and it's a sign society sends out to everybody the judge in this case that paedophiles don't make conscious decisions to be the weather valid but they can decide on how to deal out of whether or not to act out so people who do behave in this way do they believe that what they are doing is wrong or do they think that they're just being misunderstood well some something like that and others think the other way but
basically you have to understand that they decide that they're their need for this age group encounter with a child is more important than the wellbeing of the child so that they are taking a conscious decision and they are responsible for everything they do and i think they have to own up to that responsibility thanks for joining us. via for instance in danger here in the european union says it hopes that venezuela will reconsider its decision to expel germany's ambassador presenter nicolas maduro accused daniel crean of interfering in venezuela's internal affairs after held a press conference expressing support for opposition leader while i'm quite there but mr goh i don't know who has declared himself interim president says the german ambassador should stay and that europe should increase sanctions against the majority of the regime he was speaking during an ash wednesday mass in caracas. this regime the disease power has no right to declare anyone persona non-grata this
is simply a threat and that's how it should be sane by the free world the german ambassador and his country have helped bring in humanitarian i. mean it seems the madeira regime want tolerate anyone who wants to help and it's why. germany's foreign minister of course has condemned the expulsion heiko mass said german support for one would continue these kinds of lies the dots of. this will in no way mean that we would reconsider our support for one why dollars in term president off with the task of organizing free fair and democratic elections lies are you putting. to support is irreversible and it will stay there just off line. that quote was one of about fifty countries to back down who was actually in that country last week making the new president now the country's vice president is here
in berlin the w. political correspondent so many young asked autozone hopes know what ecuador could offer on quite a. well support for him he was proclaimed by the national assembly all sort of plan as well as pressure interim president and we think since he's offering a way back to him ocracy were backing him up on the way that's what all that he's asked for and we're supporting the idea that one there while you all can call for a new election in venezuela your government has recognized one kaleido as president interim president. as has the united states mr maduro says that the united states is planning a coup against him what do you say to that first of all theories that he has been as well as of east who we are facing that issue and that 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 is proof over three million
people three million people have less minutes left but 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 meeting that venezuela has expelled the german ambassador and 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 dawes prescient in terms of venezuela and in that sense we're all together in the contact group even with venezuela working on solutions for the venezuelan people and finally how destabilizing he's these conflicts for the region generally it's the biggest. migration issue that we have seen in the in many years mean decades in latin america i cannot even think about another comparable. issue like that one as i told you colombia alone has over one and a half million call it
a venezuelan 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 is a big issue and we're 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 that's all or whole be a we're not and we will not back a military intrusion in venezuela we are against that we think that would not be the solution so we're working on the democratic solution thank you very much thank you. there are two thousand troops in more than thirty african and western countries have been taking part in going to exercises in became the fast so this is a major surging terrorism and violence from groups in west africa and the region. is called flintlock is a u.s. led debate dame to add to boosting the capacity of african armies in the region

last september the european parliament voted to punish hungary for breaches of the e used core values. hungary's ruling fit as party is skilled in the art of provoking its critics this time even prime minister viktor or bonds allies were offended thousands of taxpayer funded billboards across the country depict you commission president shankar juncker and liberal billionaire george soros as conspirators in a plot to bring migrants into hungry. hungry as partners in the european parliament the european people's party called the posters fake news saying there is no conspiracy hungary's government now says the posters will come down next week according to the original plan they say but manfred weber's leader of the e.p. p. welcomed the move as proof that hungary is willing to play ball it is a good signal to putting down their their posters there that was one of the quests
i made this week the posters are just the latest flashpoint in a long running quarrel several member states one hungry expelled from the party they cited or bans brussels rhetoric as well as its effective dissolution of the central european university on political grounds for hungary and nationalist hardliners this wouldn't be a bad move. leading pro-government newspaper magyar numbs it called on prime minister orbán to leave the conservative bloc and form a new populist coalition with italy and austria or bonn responded to the editorial with a call for cool heads fit as for now intends to stay in that you p.-p. the e use largest and most influential party if you just wait for dez is a member of the european people's party and it wants to remain a member. for orbán the goal is to win over europe's conservatives to his anti immigrant politics not to go his own way. now the european union's top court has

is finally enforcing european legislation but i have to say it's not yet the very top level of court still the f's could go and appeal the judgement we hope that they are reasonable and are now releasing the documents the public is waiting for and look what is that the commission's reason for keeping these documents secret well that two different legal principles business secrets on the one hand and public safety on the other hand but such a key decision as you were quietly rightly saying on approval of a pesticide which is so widely used and of which they're responsible you and body is saying it's likely to cause cancer in such a situation the studies have to be published because signs is about replication and only if the studies published which have been put forward by the chemical
company then independent scientists can check whether they're accurate but that the u.n. has has one opinion whereas other countries have others france and belgium are skeptical for instance well brought to germany broadly accept the use of life to say so why this lack of consensus well first of all i wouldn't say that germany is backing it there's also a decision by our government to face alkali full state but so far they haven't delivered on the promise and it's really high time to do it generally to use less pesticides because we have if you're forgive me for interrupting for interrupting but time is short how do you explain the lack of consensus. the lack of consensus is simply that economic interests are struggling with public safety and sometimes
unfortunately even against reason and public safety narrow interests when talking to thank you for joining us and spend a good gold green party and maybe. the chinese tech giant in the united states for limiting its access to america's telecoms equipment market huawei is challenging a u.s. law that labels a country a security risk and cost federal agencies from buying its telecom products. companies legal challenge comes at a critical point for trade negotiations between the u.s. and china for years while way has sought to reassure the world of two things that it is not under the control of the chinese government and that it doesn't spy on consumers. a shift in tone from defense to accusation the u.s. government hides. way its right it has hacked into our servers
