1:15 pm
a new life in february this year. but first we have business news helena joins me now and more trouble for germany's biggest comic ahead enough yeah we're talking about concerns in germany and internationally for fox fog and at the moment german authorities raided the offices of several senior officials at the scandal plagued or to make at this time in connection with a cushy salary paid to its works council chief investigators searched the offices of at least two top executives the raid was related to an investigation into the income of works council chief beyond austin or the chief work is representative of the company and as much as seven hundred fifty thousand euros prosecutors say that could amount to an illegal waste of corporate funds and a form of tax evasion. well our financial correspondent
1:16 pm
is in frankfurt she joins us now hopefully there she is in yellow these are not the first rays. so how are they already been factored into the share price. well foxconn shares are down more than a percent point considering that the raid was last night you would have thought that investors would have they just had this news by now especially since it shouldn't come as such a surprise since as early as may investigators artie said that they were looking into potential irregularities in terms of compensation towards the works council but the fact that the stock is still sliding today means that investors still have the capacity to be surprised by the negative headlines and perhaps the fact that it does not have to do with these again this time around that could be the key difference but suffice to say these are great has ushered in a new era of scrutiny for five thousand and that's something about perhaps investors are being reminded of more often than they'd like i mean diesel gate or
1:17 pm
not the car makers just face so much negative press of late and yet is investment budget which is setting out this week is in the double digit billions so presumably v.w. is still feeling rather confident about its future. well just based on the goals that they've got so far we know that they're feeling ambitious in the field of electronic delivery alone they want to spend twenty billion dollars by twenty thirty and they're also investing in other key industry trends like autonomous driving they're also still investing in improving their diesel tech but negative negative headlines like these are obviously a setback if they come with corresponding costs you know that in the u.s. they've already spent the twenty five billion dollars on diesel gate alone now we don't know how much. was spent on the various legal troubles it has all around the world but we know that as it drives into the future investigations for probably be along for the ride at least for the next stretch janeiro in frankfurt good to talk
1:18 pm
to you as ever. now china has famously expanded its infrastructure over the past couple of decades but there are places where it is still woefully inadequate even homing the economy like the mongolian border that is where thousands of trucks full of coal stretch back for one hundred thirty kilometers the tailback formed in the summer as demand for coal group trucks move just to the crude and it could take weeks to cross into china and it's not just that the road that's the problem there both countries say that their customs should starve and there's little sign of that promised rail lines. well talking about some speedy a travel how about london to new york in just three hours that's the dream of an american startup exhibiting at the dubai and show and hopes to bring back supersonic airlines fourteen years after the noisy gas guzzling concorde stopped flying but this time the airplane should be faster quieter and above all well
1:19 pm
profitable. this could be the future of passenger flight the new supersonic jet called boom traveling at twenty three hundred kilometers per hour it would be faster than any other passenger plane ever built and with fifty five seats one of the smallest for now visitors to the dubai air show can only see a few small models but it's turning heads and i think supersonic can only come from a newcomer if you're boeing or air bus your economic incentives are to iterate on the same product you are making for decades for supersonic to come it's going to have to come from a new company there of only ever been to supersonic airliners and they proved to be expensive impractical and even dangerous but today many of the hurdles that plagued the t one forty four and the concorde have been overcome concorde was a technical fix us of an economic failure fifty years later we've got new technology a carbon fiber composites of turbofan engines which allow you to do supersonic for
1:20 pm
seventy five percent less than concorde talk there have already being seventy six orders if everything goes according to plan the first planes will be delivered in six years the number available in the world for whom the susan attractive product. limited which we might like to go of course transpacific transatlantic perhaps two killer apps for them but again how many airlines will be buying that that's a more complicated question but its makers say it's a product for a lucrative need a flight across the atlantic in the boom should cost around five thousand euros within the budgets of business class travelers. have to amrita now opponent is facing fresh scrutiny from europe that's right helena the european parliament has been meeting in strong spoke to determine if it wants to impose sanctions on poland over the law and order situation in the country the country's ruling and just a sponsor has an exodus series of reforms in the box to yes that the e.u. says undermines democracy and the view of know all of these include new legislation
1:21 pm
the appointment of judges and moves towards greater district sions on the media any firm decision to impose sanctions and put it might mean that poland loses its voting rights in the e.u. . and i've been a draw in detail because one of mac's soft money has been following the debate and joins me now from strasbourg max what are the m.p.'s been saying there. debates over and they already voted on the resolution and there was a large majority in favor of the reserve lucian meaning that the european parliament has cleared the way to doris what you just talked about an article seven procedure which in the end might strip poland of its voting rights that's why it's called the nuclear option before that we had a very heated debate talking about nuclear with most of the moderate party saying that this was not against the citizens of poland that they all thought poland was
1:22 pm
a great country but against the government of poland where they feel that the government is stripping the citizens of their rights is not following the rule of law of course that started some controversy especially with the ruling party in poland that has some members of parliament here as well one of them actually said that this was also just a complet against poland again he started insulting the commission and the members of the parliament and finally left so you can see it's a very emotional debate absolutely given this kind of reaction i mean will this resolution have any impact on the police government if all of this mean very touchy but any kind of criticism. because of the commission has complained many times now that they have offered to talk to government representatives to the minister so try to work this out but they never accept the invitation all they have is an exchange of very formal letters where the polish government rejects what the commission wants from them so that has not changed but this now gives the whole procedure some
1:23 pm
legitimacy because you have a legitimate democratic institution the only really democratic institution in the european union who endorses this path forward and this will give the member states some legitimacy when they decide really to go forward with article seven they're yet to do that but they're the ones who will have to decide it in the end. right maxiell fun in strasbourg on something european parliament thank you very much. italian prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation after the bodies of twenty six nigerian women were recovered from the mediterranean earlier this month but the truth about their deaths may never be known for many families it only nigeria that means a painful wait for news from their daughters who disappeared after leaving for europe our correspondent john phillips sheilds went to meet some of the affected parents. a faded picture is all that remains
1:24 pm
john i'm of koos daughter disappeared in february she was twenty three at the time a few weeks ago john received a call she had been abducted in libya on her way to europe and he would have to pay a ransom. the farmer raised six hundred euros but still has yet to see any sign of life from his daughter then last week john found out about the deaths of twenty six young nigerian women off the coast of libya says the. rest of my of being so worried about it i don't know she's among. us. earlier this month a spanish age ship rescued four hundred africans it see but twenty six nigerian women were found dead at the scene their bodies floating in the water italy launched an investigation and arrested two men on human trafficking charges authorities also contacted the nigerian government but their response was muted.
1:25 pm
austin aramaic and his team deals with deaths like these on a daily basis the activist is upset that the nigerian government his government is not doing more people dying on a daily basis so no human being will be satisfied with a little more response that we accordingly get and that is why when you see that means we know that the government season claims that the. government needs to do more. there are many says it's a lack of opportunities at home that's causing droves of young people to flee. although nigeria has more of the strongest economies in africa over sixty percent of its population live in poverty. according to the united nations more than two thousand six hundred people have died on the mediterranean sea this year one of the main countries of origin is nigeria the government has promised to fight human
1:26 pm
trafficking gangs and to give people a perspective but so far it hasn't lived up to the people's expectations. the government of course has a different take on all this the mass exodus of nigerian youth has less to do with the quality of life it says and more to do with the lies being told by human traffickers. most of those who are that have crossed the mediterranean sea on troubleshooter visit most of that even graduates so if they are not deceived by gates and mortar more green our past shows over idea though not embark on such a dangerous journey it's so poverty cardno you didn't see why that embarking on a source to us. john only could do isn't really interested in a political debate after his daughter disappeared he started working evenings as a taxi driver to make some extra money he may need it if he has to he will travel
