4:04 pm
about the soldier or both. you know a person who has access to guns this is. dangerous. cocktail if you wish. the final result from the borscht i were democratic primary still remains on play it despite all of the results or the results now being the party state officials to spend the week trying to verify the think is following a technical glitch and if they voting app many question had the chaos was allowed to happen the news meant of donald trump. democrats don't know what the hell they're doing. and they can't carry out simple votes but they want to fix your healthcare system. if you can. when questions are raised over any election results in the us they are soon
4:05 pm
followed by pledges it will be sorted quickly but it's kind of more pain now explains when it happens in other countries washington washington's reaction can be very different. often the way we interpret events can be very subjective if something happens to someone else we see it one way but it happens to us we see it very differently let's compare the electoral confusion in bolivia last october to the electoral confusion in the us state of iowa last week and both situations and election took place and the results were delayed and then authorities said that some irregularities that happened throughout the collection of records over results the i would democratic party identified in consistencies in the data and used the redundant paper records to probably correct those errors there was intentional manipulation and serious irregularities the make it impossible to validate the results originally issued by the bolivian electoral dorsey's in both instances the
4:06 pm
public spoke up and cried foul folks i don't know what is going on with the iowa democratic party and the slow trickle of results how many of the counties are having their results foolishly reported by the i.d.p. every county needs to release the results now the iowa caucus was rigged by mayor cheap eat pasta don't. you. think. and in both instances the authorities agreed and said that the concerns had to be addressed what happened in iowa was unacceptable and the party chair as acknowledged that his. apologize for that and we've worked together over the last few days to fix the challenges to see the i have decided 1st to replace every member of the supremum like total tribunal and 2nd to hold national elections to allow the bolivian people to democratically elect a new government with new political activists except the similarities stop here in
4:07 pm
iowa a recount is being conducted to make sure the ultimate results are correct and in bolivia the military toppled the government and a woman who wasn't even a candidate in the election has declared herself to be the new leader. i see in the presidency with the middle of the fact in line with the constitution and pres to take all measures necessary to bring peace to the country. while many have declared what happened in bolivia to be a military coup the u.s. secretary of state branded it as a transition to democracy we recognize the importance of believe us political transition to democracy in our hemisphere and we had minor the believe in people for standing up for their constitution their democracy and for free fair and transparent elections after morale is flat things have been pretty messy and bolivia one more resigning so that my opponents do not continue to persecute more socialist brothers.
4:08 pm
i'm wondering if they were going to say she american states as they were said in an election i want you to figure out what's what's going on where you know it's clear that in the case of bolivia. the cleaning of the let's talk discrepancies to justify any campaign to demonize this and then ultimately to overthrow him when you said why did he go against. you because he pursued policies that will object to us on. alecia region so the difference is that in the case of in the case of io while the presumption is it's just a technical problem or there's nothing sinister going on whereas in the case of the government that's our side with washington. difference. so if
4:09 pm
a us state has some electoral confusion we'll look into the matter and get it straightened out however if a socialist government that is friendly to russia and china has a mix up at the polls it's time to reduce the country to chaos caleb r.t. new york. the president of the philippines ricotta to a is planning to rip up a longstanding military pact with the united states that after washington cancelled a tourist visa issued to one of his close political allies who has been in charge of the country's tough crackdown on illegal drugs washington said that the visa had been revoked because the crackdown it strengthened and that human rights were being violated but it was quick to make his feelings known. see above all. been there love but go on the move i am wondering you know this is the 1st time. being when you know. you know.
4:10 pm
why are you it better than man made debris says. visiting a good woman. couple so well the so-called visiting forces agreement has been in place since 999 it provides a framework for u.s. troops coming to the philippines for joint training exercises and if it is cancelled it will affects more than $300.00 military personnel we spoke to political scientists from foreign affairs and this pretty tape davian about the impact this could. hear the president very easy really angry at the united states not only because of the travel ban or visa restrictions imposed on. lights but there are concerns that the united states might actually move forward. and other kinds of sanctions against the president himself down the road especially when he's out there already going to step down politically through so i think there was some complacency on the part of united states. indeed taken out that means the end of
4:11 pm
significant amount of american military to the philippines which amounted to $1800000000.00 or possibly decades and it's going to make it very difficult operation of allies because that be a base the software that allows the operationalization the hardware lines like the . britons at the center another extradition scandal because the high costs night the indian government's request to extradite a couple accused of arranging the murder of their adopted son the decision based on concern over a possible violation of their human rights in india has seen the couple walk free they deny the allegations but more on the story his shadi at woodstock. the old saying goes that no one is above the law but it seems that some people aren't subject to either a british couple adopted an 11 year old orphan boy in india and promised him
4:12 pm
a better life but now they're charged with the ranging his all for a lump sum of life insurance payout. indian place have been battling for over 2 years to get their hands on the couple but to no avail and now british high court judges have ruled they can't be extradited but not because the evidence against them isn't strong enough i find very circumstantial primary case that ms dear mr a jogger acted together and with others committed the offense and. despite all this the u.k. won't send the juror back why well because of one crucial piece of engine at a sleigh sion that means the package face a sentence of life without parole if convicted of double murder in the country which the united kingdom says would breach the human rights. i find that there are
4:13 pm
substantial grounds for believing that they would face a real risk of been subjected to treatment like a review of a life sentence which would be inhuman and degrading this would be a breach of article 3 the court's decision falls within the european convention on human rights but the ruling is raising concerns here in britain do we really want suspected child killers roaming the streets of london this is an absolutely crime and i think many people would agree there needs to be the harshest of sentences if they are found guilty it is up to the indian legal system to decide on the appropriate penalty and we should not be standing in the way of justice being served for the victims but the decision to keep criminals here in the u.k. raises alarm bells as the concept of human rights even for those abusing them seems to provide a quick get out of jail free card the fact is here justice has been denied to the indian people but the process of a trial has been prevented because of the european human rights legislation when we're saying that they can't even stand trial because the possibility that they
4:14 pm
will receive what is called an irreducible life sentence in india means that the possible sentence violates their human rights what the british government is saying is that there is no assurance in place that these 2 people will not be treated in the same way as they would have been had they been arrested in india what we are saying to the indian government and to the good right your parties is that your criminal justice system simply isn't good enough to try our citizens for was an incredibly serious offense indian people cannot hold people to account under the terms of the justice system without the european and british courts saying you're justice isn't isn't good enough i think these cases show is that actually what it does is it creates a difference in treatment between european citizens and the rest of the world. french regulators have taken a 25000000 euro bite out of apple they find it after users revealed some of its software updates were actually slowing down older versions of its i phone the
4:15 pm
country's competition and. fraud watchdog says that i phone owners weren't told installing updates were likely to lead to a slower device it also ruled that apple is guilty of misleading commercial practice by capping the performance of older models whose aging batteries couldn't handle surges in energy use well apple has admitted to failing to inform customers that they could simply replace their battery instead of buying a new device and also didn't inform them that the updates could also be reversed although apple has agreed to pay the fine it does claim that they weren't trying to make people upgrade to new things well we now know in black and white apple business model i got halfway through this story and my phone died i'd love to see that fine passed on to consumers i refurbished my battery last year which means 0 difference to performance outrageous
4:16 pm
technology expert bill me though believes the real damage won't be to apple's pocket. i think the main damage to apple in this particular instance was the damage to its reputation when this story 1st came out back in 2017 and there was a book that will fall more than a find that is equivalent to only about 55 billions of revenue for the for these coins are not actually going to make a great deal of difference what we need to do is to ensure that there are laws put in place such as the right sort of laws are coming through good help people who actually have to upgrade their phones have to replace components and hopefully that'll mean at the end of the day we're all getting better value i would like to see the battery prices going down i'd like to see that price was going but this is a competitive market and in our book and jobs that royce and people are willing to pay then that's the state of the market. there's
