president jacob zuma to account in the scandal over housing improvements which cost millions of dollars last year the court concluded zuma violated the constitution when he benefited improperly from state funding for his residence the opposition has renewed its calls for the president to be impeached and want a series of presidential scandals that have tarnished the reputation of the ruling african national congress in two thousand and nine it was revealed almost five million dollars were being spent on upgrades to the property that were meant to improve security at the compound but the costs soared and two thousand and fourteen and dependent report found some of the upgrades included luxury add ons like a swimming pool visitor center and ordered to pay back some of that money last year the constitutional court found zuma breached the constitution by ignoring the report's findings so my apologize and promise promise to repay the money tanya page has the latest from johannesburg. the constitutional court south africa's highest
6:10 am
court has found that the national assembly that's parliament failed to take appropriate action against president jacob zuma and relation to gross overspending of taxpayers' dollars on his private home called income the constitutional court says the first thing that should happen is that the national assembly needs to come up with a comprehensive list of rules and regulations which perhaps could lead to the impeachment of president zuma away but they didn't go so far as to say that's what should happen because that would be in breach of the separation of powers the opposition parties who brought this legal action we're pleased with the outcome nonetheless the constitutional duty grant mr zuma in no time will be scrutinized would be brought before parliament to be accountable because his own political party has actually failed to hold you accountable and we can with the other day

long we need to be in parliament in no less than it did to days before the state of the nation and as of twenty eight in their defense president zuma and the speaker of parliament both said it wasn't true that the national assembly had done nothing multiple votes of no confidence in president zuma have been held and they have all been defeated and that's what it comes down to it's a matter of numbers in parliament because impeaching a president is a parliamentary process so even when there are rules in place that could lead to impeaching a president ultimately that would require a two thirds majority and the reality is that the governing african national congress holds the majority and so it be extremely unlikely that the numbers would be able to be gathered for an impeachment spain's prime minister has dismissed the idea that ouster can on president. could rule from abroad. made the announcement in

this interview or speech the spanish government of fire put him on after he declared independence in october separatist parties want a majority in catalonia snap election this month but are yet to form a government whose the man is currently in self-imposed exile in brussels to avoid arrest. it is absurd to try to want to become president of an economist region while living abroad it is even more absurd to try to perform one's duties as president of an autonomy when you are abroad i really think that it's completely senseless it's not even a judicial or political issue it's just common sense i hope that we can quickly count on a government in catalonia that is able to engage in dialogue and reach an understanding with all catalans not just with half of them. still ahead.

6:18 am
which started in ten to thirteen also display started in east and resulted in more than half of the twelve million population facing food insecurity south sudanese government leaders say tensions are being created because the refugees have freedom to move and reach limited resources in montana. if you. feel better there are advantages and disadvantages of having them here the main problem is that the camps are not first means there are a few g.'s can move around freely in the trees for domestic use and that is having an impact. and with almost no chance of returning home to sudan soon the united nations high commission for refugees says they need to be protected they are here they have needs they have rights and these needs and rights have to be met and so that there has to be a very high level of cooperation between you and the south sudanese government to ensure that they are safe protected and and that their needs are met

6:20 am
are going to challenge the pardon one is in the domestic courts in peru and there are precedents a few years ago an associate of fiji mori actually a businessman the head of a large conglomerate media organization was hard and he'd been convicted of corruption and he'd been pardoned based on humanitarian grounds and a few weeks later he was caught on camera in a country club looking quite healthy and the constitutional tribunal overturned his pardon. and so there is a precedent for that kind of thing in a pardon is found to be fraudulent lee granted then it can be overturned by peru's constitutional tribe you know the other venue of course is the international says the interim air command system and why it was right that is possible in this case is could you know where he was convicted for two for a series of human rights abuses to very important and emblematic cases nobody else

6:23 am
happy with this latest criticism from president trump coming in such a public stinging manner but it's true to say that china has become used to dealing with the united states in a different way over the past year and has been accustomed to president trump's tweets at the ministry of foreign affairs regular press briefing friday in beijing there was no specific reference or reply to this latest attack but the spokes person was asked about the allegations concerning this hong kong registered vessel seized in south korea for allegedly dealing in illicit oil with north korea the ministry said that it has been investigated to the chinese customs have no record of this vessel visiting a chinese port since august although it has no records of it whether it visited other ports as far as it knows the chinese government does not know of any illicit
6:24 am
activity that this vessel has been involved in repeating that the chinese government is still very much committed to enforcing the u.n. sanctions whether china has known about any trades that might be taking place it's difficult to believe that any illegal activity or transfer of oil at sea could take place without china's knowledge and it would fit with the general narrative of china quietly supporting the north korean regime not necessarily out of any loyalty to an old ally but really as a pragmatic measure to shore up the regime as far as china is concerned it a comparable bully live with a nuclear armed north korea not an ideal situation but for china the unacceptable situation is a collapsing regime that still has access to nuclear warheads that for china is the worst case scenario a viral video in south korea has prompted a national debate about the treatment of women in the workplace. it's also
