2:08 pm
some chinese officials will also face sanctions the hong kong or tanami act which i signed this afternoon passed unanimously through congress this law gives my administration powerful new tools to hold responsible the individuals and the entities involved in extinguishing hong kong's freedom we've all watch what happened not a good situation their freedoms been taken away their rights have been taken away and with it goes hong kong in my opinion because it will no longer be able to compete with free markets or tums announcement that came off to a win for his administration with the u.k. announcing it will ban chinese tech giant huawei from its new high speed my bomb that tracked citing concerns about security china has strongly opposed that decision saying the u.k. is merely playing into political manipulation from the united states while katrina u. is following all the developments from beijing. we heard earlier from quaternion who's the foreign ministry spokesperson she had quite strong words for the u.k.
2:09 pm
she said that it was colluding with the u.s. to oppress chinese companies she said that this was an unfair discriminatory move it violated a commitment by the u.k. to huawei and china and also it damage relations between london and they doing she said that the u.k. would do better to listen to the business community in britain who are opposed to this move because it was the business community there as well as the citizens of the u.k. who would suffer because of it now watch and he was also asked if she agreed with this very strong editorial which was person in the global times the state media newspaper and government mouthpiece which essentially attacked the u.k. government saying that this was a borders of huawei but at the same time china shouldn't worry because the u.k. was a weak link in terms of other west and 5 eyes allied countries and also it said that china should retaliate in a strong way because otherwise other western powers like get the wrong idea and
2:10 pm
think that it's ok to bully beijing well quaternion didn't respond directly to that but she did say that china would do whatever it could to protect chinese companies and she also strongly encourage any chinese investors to reconsider doing business with the u.k. because of the risky environment there let's have a listen to what she had to say on that. just show you which usually this is about the u.k. at all costs politicizing commercial and technology issues this is about china facing major threats in its investment security in the u.k. and it's about our confidence in whether the u.k. markets can remain open fair and nondiscriminatory so we will comprehensively and seriously evaluate this and will take all necessary measures to safeguard our companies interests and rights. well the diplomatic relationship between beijing and washington seems to be in a downward spiral and the rhetoric has certainly been taken up a notch quaternion said that she called the u.s.
2:11 pm
a troublemaker and she said that if the u.s. really wants to stir up trouble let the storm rage with greater force so it seems that beijing is not going to back down on this she essentially repeated an early a statement by china's foreign ministry that was released on wednesday morning saying that the u.s. is slandering hong kong's national security law that it should not meddle in china's internal affairs and it should back down from this also justified the law saying that this was essential for hong kong security its stability its peace going forward and that the hong kong people like accept and want to this law will of course that is vastly different from a lot of the sentiment that we're hearing from hong kong she also said that they would hit back at the u.s. in the form of sanctions against the relevant u.s. officials and personnel well now winners of the election primaries in hong kong have been calling for gracey unity within the pro-democracy camp and september's legislative council polls most of the 600000 votes went to so-called localist

of modern times so. now al jazeera has uncovered shocking new revelations about the number of infants who died at the hands of catholic religious orders and island they're part of a 3 month investigation into so-called mother and baby homes it's estimated as many as $6000.00 children could be buried an unmarked graves and island and found that in the grounds of just one home the nuns appear to have produced so ridged tag on top of the remains of children who died in their care and in another home the nuns may have misled a commission of inquiry as to where the bodies of children are buried lawrence lee has this exclusive report. 6 years on from the discovery of 800 babies bodies in sewage tanks and reform a mother and baby home in the irish town of chimp and the state commission to investigate what really happened still has yet to report but to me seems to be the
2:19 pm
tip of the iceberg. this is like all such homes women who become pregnant out of marriage were ordered to come here. cause huge this is your 1st impression when you walk in it's like a stately home and surrender their babies to the nuns for adoption while they were made to work in the laundries as a punishment for their sins. this is the 1st time a film crew has entered the room going to just start the way russia briars of the flea in the 1980 s. michael was a groundsman he was asked by the nuns to clear a patch of land for what is now a so-called angels plots a place to commemorate the children who died of things like malnutrition in the home turned over to and i just know a. boy of the nuns claim 269 babies died here the last in 1904 yet official records say the actual figure is over a 1000 so where are they we've established the existence of a burial pits for unbaptized children whose deaths are recorded anywhere and it's believed a sewage tank has been laid in the angel's plot as well it's an echo of what
2:20 pm
happened to you. are we prepared to allow this level of just the question baby died do we really we just sucks. that we are not even going to. as another home best confidential irish health service document showed just how many infants died in the care of the nuns in one year the death rate was 82 percent 900 babies died here yet only 64 recorded the nuns say they can't remember where the rest of but this official map suggest the existence of a children's burial plots right here you can see the indentations from the air i don't believe for one second they don't know where the burial grounds are and i don't believe for one second that they don't how far records of everything that happened in those cases we came across a workman who'd been asked to dig up the site right next to where the graves appear
2:21 pm
to be are you worried about it where he had no way of knowing but for the relatives of those who died here it's amounts to tampering with a potential crime scene just so you know they are we on the question for the relatives the idea that the remains of thousands of children are scattered around oil and shouldn't really be a matter for a civil commission of inquiry it's all it should be something for these people the police there were 14 mother and baby homes in ireland our investigation has raised concerns about a number of them but by no means all the irish state commission has an opportunity to reveal the truth about what happened throughout the 20th century with all the implicit criticism of the role of the catholic church in society whether it will remains an open question and to decide to release its own findings. are actually al-jazeera in and why you can watch more from lawrence lee is investigation into islands mother and baby scandal on people in power that's later on wednesday at
2:22 pm
2230 g.m.t. here on out of there well susan lowen is a co-founder of the adoption rights alliance and she doesn't think the commission of investigation will give the families the answers they need. collective massachusetts for it's the mothers and of the unmarried mothers and their not marital children across it's nonsense that 14 mother and baby homes they regarded as other the nuns used. staged state grants to profit from the so called care of these women and their children so they were never really concerned about the welfare of the individuals they were only concerned about their profit notion. using the women and for unpaid labor in those institutions i think the commission of investigation which of course is now running at 3 years late in its report is not going to provide the answers that families desperately needs and there is an absolute belief in the co-op i wish government that as long
2:23 pm
