a snap election earlier this year after alleging links between prime minister joe's of moscato and offshore business dealings contained in the panama papers many in positions of power politicians and the police had reason to want to silence on the sixteenth of october someone succeeded with a. car apart you're a pole and the f.b.i. have joined the investigation the government has offered over a million dollars for information but no arrests have yet been made on facebook her son matthew wrote my mother was assassinated because she stood between the rule of law and those who sought to violate it we are a people at war against the state and organized crime which have become indistinguishable. from the family made clear that leaders were not welcome at the funeral and in a statement the european commission vice president france to months said the eyes
of europe. for it is. the last words on her final blog post for a reason they're a crook so everywhere you look now daphne wrote on the day she died the situation is desperate. the un has our sister area to restore food water and health services to six hundred refugees are refusing to leave it's decommissioned prison camp on papua new guinea's man the silent services were cut when the camp was closed on choose day but the refugees are too scared to move out because of previous attacks by locals are still young ones are short prison camps the high as refugees to try to reach the country by books are diplomatic editor james bass has more from the united nations. there is growing concern here in the united nations in geneva strong statements coming from the office of the high commissioner for human rights condemning the actions of
a stray and papua new guinea and here in new york in recent hours i spoke to the high commissioner for refugees who expressed his deep concern we're worried now about the humanitarian conditions of these people because the center is closing. and no proper plans have been made to support these people so this is now the urgent matter that needs to be tackled that we believe that australia has a responsibility in helping finding a solution for this do you believe that australia in this instance and in its overall refugee policy is living up to its commitments in international humanitarian law we have had a difference of opinion everybody knows that over the outsourcing of of reception in man a silent in the now row and we have disagreed with this aspect of their asylum policy but we keep talking to them about that so the picture even is is is not the
is not uniform we have to look at the different aspect of australia's refugee policies and some are very good on others we the discussion is open the un has long condemned australia's policy of contract ing out its refugee obligations by paying neighboring countries to process asylum seekers the key now i think will be public opinion inside australia even the most neutral observer will i think conclude that the events of the last few days have been a complete mess well the refugees refusing to leave the camp have released a video pleading with these chilean government to secure their safety they're asking to be allowed to seek asylum in new zealand australia has repeatedly refused new zealand's offer to relocate until one hundred fifty reconcile. but today every country around the world they knew what the strike they did today what they have
done to us it's inhumane we are just a human being who are running from the war zone and we are asking for their protection we are not asking for a prison so this prison that we've been in for years and how and they want to send us to another prison how long are we going to spend our life in the prison we are human beings we have a feeling we have a family so we need to get our freedoms police police police if you hear this message and we want you to act immediately we want you to stand up for us. i bear is presidential election runoff will be delayed as the supreme court investigates allegations of electoral fraud in the west african nation the vote was due to take place next tuesday and was expected to mark liberia's first democratic transition of power but this week the supreme court halted preparations will on monday on a petition filed against the election commission by the liberty party candidate who missed the runoff by finishing third. from the capital monrovia. the candidate for liberty party charles brahms king is asking the supreme court to
council the vote and he's asking for a rerun of the whole election the presidential election in particular he wants the court to set aside the move by the national electoral commission to all i don't know of between georgia where was former wall football player of the year and of course the current vice president this is a job or cry according to mr. brown's a lot of rigging irregularities have taken place in the october tenth election now whatever the court judgement on monday what is certain at the moment is that the runoff election between the two top leaders of the vote on october tenth will not happen on tuesday the november seventh this is because a lot of preparations have been put on hold because of the court. judgment in anticipation of the court judgment it was set aside the distribution of election materials to various counties especially those far away from the liberian capital
monrovia as well as the training of officials to handle the runoff between the two candidates so whatever happens on monday in the supreme court judgement then definitely a lot of days will have to be located or rather the election commission needs a lot of days to make sure that all preparations i place for the election to go on argentina's former vice president's been arrested on corruption charges a model builder who is the second. when the government of president cristina kirchner detention he is accused of racketeering and money laundering to isabel is following events in the capital when. he was arrested early in the morning argentina's former vice president. was taken away by the police at an upscale neighborhood of one a site is accused of corruption and money laundering. justice is being done. to cut the wings suspected of committing
crimes try to hide their wrongdoing and complicate the case and that was decided in that he was called over. who investigated or suspected of corruption. fifty five year old economist faces three charges of what is formally term does elicit in richmond view accusations date back to two thousand and nine when he was cristina fernandez the economy minister. two years later he became argentina's vice president after cristina kirchner one real action. last year several members from the previous administration and people close to former president cristina kirchner have been arrested bay have been accused of corruption money laundering i mean part of a criminal organization that stole millions from state funds this investigations have been ongoing for years but it is now with a change in government that they have started to move forward. who is the second
major official to be arrested last week former public works minister who was detained also on corruption charges which he denies the arrests represent a blow to the former president who has herself been accused of corruption. but what worries him is that the high profile detentions appear politically motivated. there's been a change in the way the judiciary is operating because much of what we have seen are preventative detentions amounted not to happen in the past judges are requesting the detention of high profile figures that satisfy the media and society they are more political than anything else. also questions why some cases are moving faster than others. why hasn't kirshner been detained she is supposedly the chief of the criminal organization. president my main challenger was
elected a senator last month cristina kirchner continues to be a strong political figure that polarizes argentinean society something that analysts say benefits the current administration. arrests of high profile figures are expected to continue in the months to come some in argentina believe they are finally seeing justice others fear they are witnessing a politically inspired witch hunt. one of. the united nations in colombia have signed a major agreement disrupting the country's cocaine business is part of peace efforts between the government and long controlled the drugs trade but as our. ports the three hundred fifty million dollars deal is not universally welcomed. it's the largest deal colombia ever signed with the un's office on drugs and crime colombia will hand over to the u.n. agency more than three hundred million u.s.
dollars over four years. in exchange the country received assistance in its efforts to encourage farmers away from growing coca the basic ingredient for cocaine by replacing it with legal crops like coffee and cackle both sides describe the agreement this crucial. move. for a time coca-cola deviation in colombia subsided but it's booming again production is said to have doubled in the last three years. and the country is under increasing pressure to deal with it in part through force the revocation and by convincing farmers to turn their back on the crop for good but it's proving a challenge the colombian government hopes the un deal will help with. the un will monitor and assist the promise of participating in swapping crops and it's also
going to help rebuild the conflict areas. but some drug trafficking experts fear the money will mostly end up paying for the un's bureaucracy and not bringing benefits to farmers. what we have to observe is that ninety five percent of the resources of the amount of money that is invested is expander in areas that have no coca so ninety five percent of the money is going to the wrong areas and who's the man responsible for this i think is the responsibility of the colombian government and you know d.c. they're taking a bigot over heard on it and they're like really responsible why these programs has no provide the resources that we all expect the u.n. does have a track record of some success in colombia where it has helped monitored very story peace deal with the far gravels the question now is whether this u.n. agency deal will help change the conditions where illicit crops of long been the
only means of survival for hundreds of thousands of farmers alison that i'm just you know. and more than seventy years after the end of world war two unexploded bombs can still be a hazard in germany so when an elderly resident of the southwestern town of britain spotted this in his garden in the early hours of the morning he was understandably worried and called the police fortunately the on closer examination believed offices identified as merely a large vegetable occlusion or zucchini and the bomb squad was mercifully called off to find out much more about the main stories we're following courtships and all that al jazeera to call him. the mind of the main stories here on al-jazeera an international search and arrest warrants been issued for the as to kaplan president should small along with several
