5:02 pm
a 2nd time in his lifetime but this time around the ceremony was rather low key was rather short as well due to security concerns but also due to the fact that democracy day that usually takes place in may 29th has been moved to june 12th is another reason though why probably it's better to make sure that this integration is quite low key and that has to do with a reservation and skepticism among many nigerians who did not vote for president bihari 2nd term and for his a.p.c. party especially young voters that i've spoken to said they are not satisfied with the results of president 1st they would really want change in this country they want to make sure that the economy is really revamped that the corruption is really swept away in nigeria and that their stability and security in this country a lot of homework for president will harvey that he's basically inheriting from his 1st term in office as he's trying to fulfill these promises and this time around as

infrastructure such as its regular power outages they must spend $200.00 every month just to keep their drinks cool their youths are young vibrant we want to do something so if the government can give us. i think anything give you power in terms of electricity or power in terms of power in terms of electricity when we get electricity influence we. promised all of that but it's hard to find someone who believes in his policies. nothing anything is the people they believe in so the issue i feel that. after a while i finally find a horse supporter eager to join the festivities president we need patience
5:05 pm
room was no beauty. of the saints but i don't see it. around. them when with a war president lacks the support of a majority of the electorate the youth about half of the registered voters are under $35.00 but only every 3rd of the electorate went out to vote at all a historic low which does not bode well for president 2nd term. some of the other stories making news around the world a favorite to become britain's next prime minister. is being taken to court to allegations that he lied to votes ahead of the 26th referendum the case is over the leave campaigns britain with 350000000 pounds a week if it left the european union. the profit sums against the former foreign secretary was bought by a businessman marcus. chinese telecoms john trois way has asked a u.s.

5:07 pm
denies that wrongdoing and says it marks its products responsibly and spits estimate that $130.00 americans and die every day from opioid overdoses this is the 1st of 2000 cases being brought against drugs companies in the u.s. . this could move from stephen beers or from a d w have business welcome stephen what is this case really about fill in one sense is a very typically american corporate liability case for products that could be considered dangerous but are legal think of guns think of tobacco think of even mortgages oftentimes in the u.s. where product regulation is lighter the question comes down to who has liability when a product is abused is that the corporation or is the or is it the individual who abuses that product in this case when it falls on the corporation oftentimes it falls on how for. it is marketed was the company being truthful in the claims that made johnson and johnson the claim against them is that they were not truthful in
5:08 pm
how they marketed their opioids that they that they basically were saying that these opioids were not as addictive as they in fact were and that they were more applicable in pain treatment than they should have been applied to the true the really i think it shows also about something bigger it's about finding blame for a larger health crisis in the u.s. that's rocked the country for the past 2 decades. this is a great focal point johnson johnson a huge consumer products company that everyone knows probably better known for baby shampoo than they are for opioids some the other companies are better known for that but it becomes a focal point for something that really has ravaged the country and that is very personal to a lot of people that's not to dismiss the claims made against johnson and johnson but just to say that there is that they've become a focal point for something very very large is that this crisis this was this is one of the planks of the president trump and indeed johnson and johnson is not the only pharmaceutical company being targeted in this way right and when you were just
5:09 pm
talking there in the pictures behind you were one of the pictures behind it was a bottle of oxy cotton that is probably the pill that is most widely associated with the prescription painkiller abuse epidemic that was created by purdue pharma which was a company that brought that to market in 1960 start making billions on it annually in the years that followed the family that owns that company as a private company were multi-billionaires it was it was estimated by forbes around 20152016 based on the success of this painkiller they were also found to have mis sort of mis labeled how addictive these products were they in fact argued that they were less addictive because they were time released compared to older opioid products that had been on the market but they were still allowed to sell them they they face some penalties but was allowed to sell those products in time to sis is not the last we have heard of this particular case and other statement as if on cue . rift appears to be growing between german chancellor angela merkel and
5:10 pm
french president emmanuel mccraw over who should become the next commission president chancellor merkel backs a process by which the top job goes to the lead candidates of the biggest party in the european parliament would be the head of the european people's party who also happens to be a german the president says this process is obsolete after last week's or european elections shifted the parliament's balance of power. as europe's leaders took their seats at a summit in brussels there was little to suggest that anything was wrong but after last week's elections to the european parliament in which both the center right to and center left parties lost seats the political climate here is changing and so too are the jobs. the biggest question is who will replace this man john claude younker is president of the e.u.
5:11 pm
commission and soon to step down. and these are the frontrunners for the post they've been nominated by the political groups in the european parliament we can bring the whole strength of europe our valuable german chancellor angela merkel has put her weight behind german m.e.p. manfred verba the lead candidate from the biggest block in the e.u. parliament but french president emmanuel mark on doesn't like this lead candidate system and wants change perhaps even this woman e.u. commissioner margaret fest dargah feebleness to you because the german government has committed to the principle of the need candidates however the parties represented in the coalition have different views as to which candidate is best suited. if everyone's distaste with their preferred names will be stuck because none of the groups have a majority all alone and even if 2 of them work together they still have a majority we need 3 yo even 4 groups to do this fulfill some believe mekel is
5:12 pm
behind the curve on this because she has self will soon be leaving her own job. there is a kind of missed opportunity between france and germany and the germans were at one point more european than the french this too much of an economic discrepancy between france and germany germany is the 1st economic power in europe so europe is less vital for germany than it is for france and that's quite sad. it's now down to a nothing easy chief don't know to ask to try to come up with an acceptable nominee for the next commission president fronts with gemini and fronts and odds of that process this one to be an easy task. the us special counsel robert muller has just made a statement about his investigation of russian interference in the 2016
5:13 pm
presidential election it's the 1st time he's spoken of publicly since his $400.00 pay for just released last month comes amid demands for him to take questions from congress about his findings and about tensions with the head of the u.s. justice department over the handling of the report's special counsel and special counsel let's go straight to washington where we join the d.w. so all of a sudden welcome all of us what is robert mueller been saying. well yeah this came as a big surprise today robert was the most prominent person perhaps in washington and it was the 1st time in 2 years since he began investigating on russian interference in the 2000 election campaign that he spoke out publicly so this came as a massive surprise and statement can be considered a setback for the u.s. president as well as for the attorney general who has tried to defend the u.s. president who said that the president was completely exonerated after the 400 pages
5:14 pm
the report was published in april now a wild robert as mahler stressed were things that are known but were known before but if you consider them he said the president cannot be charged while in office he said charging him was not an option that we could consider therefore and he also said it will be unfair to accuse the president of something when there can't be a trial now if you take that into consideration and also that he says if there were if if they were clear that there was a crime if they were. unclear there was a crime they would have stated that this means a setback for the president because it clearly says and stresses also that there has been evidence on obstruction of justice what the democrats have been repeating over and over again and that he is not completely exonerated on this matter so the only reason being for not indicting him right now is that he simply can't be indicted as a sitting president so robert muller did not speak while the inquiry was going on
5:15 pm
and there were no deeks there have been calls for him to speak before why is he choosing to make this statement now. well they has been a lot of pressure mounting on robert sowle the report was published in april and before that. the attorney general decided to publish a 4 page summary and in this summary he said the president is completely exonerated and since then there has been a massive political fights here in washington between the democrats and the republicans over the interpretation of this report so the big problem here being more until this point was that there was no conclusion on the question of obstruction and that this was basically left to the political parties 2 that was basically it robert mahler's intention to have the political parties come to a conclusion here that did not work it led to a massive political fight the pressure was mounting so much that eventually robert
5:16 pm
as mahler saw the necessity to step out there and make this public statement all of a sudden in washington thank you. to brazil where the prison system has been rocked by a spate of killings the bodies of more than 50 inmates have been found in prisons in manaos the remote amazonas state of georgia attributing the deaths to drug related gang violence prison giant balls not how devoted to regain control of his country's prisons the spokesman said the violence is unlikely to spread out of the . all come from above but inside these walls brutality reigns some 55 inmates have been massacred inside brazil's prisons strangled to death and stabbed with shop and toothbrushes families gathered at a morgue demanding to see the bodies of their loved ones others are still waiting
5:17 pm
to hear if their husbands are alive. it's because when you get anguished desperate here outside the prison we don't know what to do because we aren't allowed to get close to the gate the police won't allow us and don't inform us about anything. unless it's not easy because they are treated like animals inside they are humans not dogs they should be given jobs and put some work but it doesn't happen. the killings began on sunday and spread across 4 prisons in the amazonas state anguished relatives rioted outside the gates brazil's justice minister has blamed gang violence he says suspected ringleaders will be transferred to maximum security prisons. information we have who stood there was a conflict between criminal factions within the prisons which can happen anywhere in the world but this should not happen we have a really good reason to try to control these types of cases but others blame systematic overcrowding for raising tensions between inmates. inside
