it has never been more available it's a constant barrage with every day but the message is simplistic you have the brain the good logical rational crazy monster and misinformation is rife dismissal and does not hold well documented accusations and evidence is part of genocide the listening post provides a critical counterpoint challenging mainstream media narratives of this time on al-jazeera. catalunya suppose president as a wanted man after spain issues an international warrant for his arrest for rebellion sedition and misuse of funds.
i'm richelle carey this is out to sara live from doha also coming up russian and syrian troops launched an offensive to retake. border town under eisel control in syria. what is going on on models i love the movie the crisis and no one will help us a desperate plea from hundreds of refugees who say they have been abandoned on manis island. plus one should issue to the new wave of artisans in hong kong weaving modern life into an ancient craft. an international search and arrest warrant has been issued for the deposed cattle on president carlos pushed him on spanish prosecutors want to investigate him for rebellion and sedition over last month's declaration of independence but the sacked leader has missed two days of court hearings and madrid he is in brussels. he
intends to challenge any belgian agreement to extradite him back to spain despite that he says he's ready to run and regional elections call for in december belgian authorities have twenty four hours to react to this european arrest warrant several of his aides are also being sought by catalans views are split on how the deposed president has handled this crisis. she get giggling live in india then you know i want catalonia to be independent and i think all politicians are doing everything possible so they can help calm the public we are suffering a bit because spanish politicians are playing like a cat chasing a dog but i think collins put you money is not going to let us down you know she. i don't know what beliefs they have but when someone does what he's done and calls for independence and then flees that's not good he's fleeing from the law the president has to fulfill the law if he starts doing something else a lot of it that is going to lose everything so david chaytor is following all these developments from brussels so david what else to we know the latest about
this arrest warrant. reseller two sets of arrest warrants were issued by the national court in madrid and international law has you said and also a european arrest warrant now those that paperwork arrived at the federal prosecutor's office here in belgium last evening last night and a spokesman did tell those that essentially what will happen now is they'll check through the those arrest warrants and the order is to search and seize the the former cattle and president and four of his cabinet ministers what will happen is that they will put this paperwork to an investigative judge either this morning or on sunday they haven't said yet officially when that judge will be appointed and then the the catalans the president pushed him on and his full cabinet ministers will have twenty four hours in which to appear before him and then he will decide
on their case he will listen to their pleas it's now very likely of course that that puts him on the cabinet ministers will actually surrender to the belgian authorities to the belgian judicial system they're not going to be fugitives they said they will cooperate but they tend to use the grounds for challenging the arrest warrants that are there in the european. warrant system now i can tell you a bit more about that what i mean essentially is that they've got up to sixty days to try and combat this extradition order and in special circumstances even another thirty on top of that so this is beginning of a very long process and they have an expert lawyer pulled back out who has been working about seven years ago with leaders of the basque separatist movement at and he successfully fought any attempt to extradite them so he knows his business he said thirty years of experience and i think this is going to be
a long legal process into such and that david chaytor live for us from brussels david thank you. a military assault to push eisel out of a border town under its control in syria it is underway russian jets are pounding on the syria iraq border and the daraa zor countryside six civilians were killed after residential areas were targeted syrian army's elite forces aided by iran backed shia militia and hezbollah fighters are leading the operation on the ground on friday eisele was pushed out of doors or the armed groups last major urban stronghold and that country on top adviser to iran's supreme leader says syrian government forces will advance soon to retake rocka city tehran has been backing syrian president bashar al assad on the battlefield against opposition fighters and i mean you know if you couple the americans by locating in eastern iraq or trying to divide syrians into two parts of they tried to do in iraq they won't succeed in
syria you'll witness in the near future the advance of government and popular forces in syria and east of the euphrates and the liberation of iraq a city with the latest from hosmer tracking all the developments from gaza on the turkey syria border will come to rock in a moment first though tell us the latest about what's happening in the significance of it. rochelle the military operation continues now windowed book come out of this push by the russians by the syrian government backed by different armed groups to try to retake the city now there's been this sentiment among the intelligence community is that most likely the top operatives will be now based since this last all the territory and syria this explains now why the russians are insisting on those targeted attacks they saying that they are targeting
a militia and fortification centers and also voice and also top leaders in in the book come out now i said has been over the last few days in dying that any of the commanders were killed in those attacks. but however we've been getting reports from activists. that many civilians were killed over the last forty eight hours in different areas particularly on the outskirts of the book about where there's been some intense strikes targeting. positions in the city and as i mentioned right as we were coming to you this talk of rain taking iraq out what do we know about this and. we were taken in iraq is going to buy the syrian government. that it is determined to take over every single territory in lost. to the rebels or to the kurdish
factions and this is something which is going to create further problems for the international community in the future so you have the syrian army backed by russia you have the s.d.f. backed by the americans imagine both in tangled in a fight over the americans are determined to continue providing significant logistical and military assistance of the s.d.f. in the push i guess what happens next when isis is driven out of. and out of syria. continue to have a significant role now the syrian government says that it is determined to claim its. tutorial independence in the near future and that the syrian army will be the ultimate power all over syria a sentiment not shared by different opposition groups but particularly the s.d.f. which hopes to be able to create a state of its own in areas like iraq. and also northern part of syria so this is
definitely going to be a delicate situation now if the syrians go ahead with the russians and the iranians to move forward towards it can certainly afford under their control i mean there's absolutely no way the ask the afghan put up resistance against the syrian army but then what will be the reaction of america as they go into a lead their own ally in the region be under the control of the syrian military all right. thank you. more than six hundred refugees have made a desperate plea to new zealand's prime minister ahead of her meeting with her all civilian counterpart for years new zealand had offered to resettle some of the refugees australia locked in its offshore prison camps the man asylum camp was decommissioned on tuesday but hundreds of refugees are refusing to leave because they fear being attacked by locals we are losing the international community to discuss what is going on on models one of the movement is in human journey and crisis and no one will help us all is the international community will intervene in

a self built well but there are real concerns about dysentery and other health problems present now australia's government says those men have been in accommodation elsewhere on minus all islands but the united nations analysts say that accommodation isn't ready for them yet it's still a construction site and the refugees any why site that accommodation isn't site by site that it isn't protected from the locals who want to do them harm who don't welcome them into the community and many of those refugees when they have been out of that person in the past on have. well we spoke to a few of the protesters here and here's some of what i have to say is appalling and . point. here i think i think i think. it's completely and utterly horrible and i think it's really. stands.
