4:36 pm
unless it was for lifetime achievement. so committee has looked at it quite often does across other connected issues and they've gone for this issue of press freedom and, and good reporting under extremely difficult circumstances where both are journalists who have received their ward have had threats to their life and who stand for i think the very best standards in journalism and an accurate reporting fidelity to the truth. so i think this is an an award to them individually. and it's also, i'm sure, is meant to send a message or, you know, encouragement and inspiration to other journalists, possibly those also and difficult circumstances to stand their ground. okay, to continue speaking truth to power. ok. anything that speaks to power, these are the human rights or freedom of the media or the negatives, you know that this kind of alber algorithmic ecosystem that particular maria
4:37 pm
theresa does have an understandable problem with because she's been on the receiving end of lies and untruths. that have been propagated in that on that media platform by the people that is topical, but it's only topical, surely to the country. people in the countries in which maria, theresa and murat, off works. are you the philippines and russia, the old soviet union, eastern bloc countries. as well, there are other issues that are more relevant and more topical to the rest of us. i'm thinking about climate change for one because we're all experiencing year on year. and we have experienced this past 9 months so. so the real impact of something like climate change? yes, i think climate change is a hot topical issue. ah, it would have been perfectly possible, i think, for the peace prize committee to have decided to award the are the price to climate change activists this year. after all, this has been a very bad year for the climate, and there is a major international climate change conference coming up in 3 weeks time. got
4:38 pm
26000 glasgow. but the issue of press freedom is of moral events than just in the 2 countries. the philippines and russia, we've seen attacks on journalism and journalists, physical attacks and also attacks attempting to smear good journalism to get people to distrust it. and that has been mounting that has been accumulating over time. and i think this is a very important issue that is also the directly connected to the question of peace because freedom of expression is at the core of democracy. and democratic states are better for peace than dictatorships. democratic states do not fight each other . and on average, but quite clearly are more stable and peaceful internally than no other other systems of government. so i think there's a very strong case to be made here that this was a relevant award, a proper award to be giving, even if, as you point out, you know, there could be other candidates. hm. and then there are also other years as well.
4:39 pm
and great talk to, thanks very much, dan smith, the director of the stock co, into national peace research institute. staying in europe. the european commission has warned poland, it must respect you. law, poland, top court ruled that e u institution should not interfere with the polish judiciary. it's a challenge to the supremacy of e. you law of a national laws, a key principle of the union. it raised questions of opponents future in the block, and it's access crucially to you funding all rulings by the european court of justice are binding on all member states authorities, including national courts. law has primacy over national law, including constitutional provisions. this is what all member states have signed up to. as members of the european union, we will use all the powers that we have under the treaties to ensure this life now
4:40 pm
to berlin and our corresponding mer, dominant cane dom. either this sounds like fighting talk on both sides. well, certainly it sounds as though a collision course has been set underway between warsaw and brussels as it were. from the polish perspective, the government in poland and warsaw is determined that it believes that it has the rights to assert the value of its own constitution. it believes that that being the case, then it's law, the law that is passed by polish parliament that's enacted by the polish government should be supreme. and the problem with that of course, is that that goes against the european law, which previous polish governments adhered to. so clearly the european union perspective is simple, that by joining the
4:41 pm
e u when it did in 2004 the polish then government, the parliament accepted the clear suggestion from you law that from the you rather than joining the you meant accepting the supremacy of you law, so that's what we were hearing from the use perspective. they believe that poland, rather the polish government that is, is acting against the, the assertion of you law. so he has a collision course because it's clear. the polish government has selected judges to sit in the constitutional tribunal who have come to a routing. the funny thing about this is that this is one constitutional tribunal. now saying the polish law is paramount in certain areas. when of course, it was the constitutional constitutional tribunal in 2004, a different one, obviously with different judges and said, no, you laurie supreme securely a collision course. one final thing to say here is here in germany, we for the foreign minister, high co mass,
4:42 pm
fully backing the you and saying the german government backs the commission in whatever it needs to do to enforce acceptance of the law. in other e. u countries, don't many thanks. dominant came there. berlin correspondent, stay with the story. joining us from warsaw is void. check. she belsky, editor in chief of the visa grad insight. that's up on the school magazine that void check. she belsky welcome back to the news, or is this the polish government, or is it the polish government talking for the people of poland? well, this is definitely the polish government, a influencing thir ruling we and know from the ruling of the european court of human rights. that the tribunal does not meet the criteria and independent court. and it is politically, are influenced by the politicians. we know that from the ruling can we know that from the journalist reporting of the type of relationship that the top officials of
4:43 pm
this tribunal half with the sitting a party officials are. and it's clearly a political interest here, rather than the rule of law. that is, that is a, that has been uttered through that mouth through the voting that took place in the constitutional tribunal. okay. this is boiling down to the european union's courts of justice in effect, correct me if i'm wrong here, in effect, threatening to either suspend or over rule new legislation as being introduced in war sort to do with the legal system in poland. so that's an immovable object. meeting another immovable object, somebody has got to blink and walk away here. well, yes, but again, we have already the ruling of the european court of justice. this ruling suspends the act, the activity of something the position calls accounts are on the polish judicial
4:44 pm
system in poland. highly politicized chambers within the supreme court that undermine again the independence of the court system. and the european court of justice ruled in accordance with the polish regulations with the polish constitutions and take into account the polish law in order to protect the independence. there is no unmovable objects here. there is a political position of the party that is deeply divided internally and seeks to consolidate on the polarization tactics. it's a political marketing tactics which has very serious consequences, of course, for poland in today's europe. but it's merely merely death and nothing of conflict of the legal of the, of the legal type of weight of the legal argument. okay, we have to leave it. the check should be ski there more. so thank you very much.

president philippe cal did on. and former us president george w bush. since its inception, mexico has received more than $3000000000.00 worth of us aid for security measures, along with training and equipment aimed at curbing transnational crime and reducing violence. there was a big effort to train police officers, which was carried out all over mexico municipal state and federal police officers. so if you, if you depart from the baseline of training of developing institutional capacities, there have been a number of baby steps if you want to say of some tiny successes that have been changed one after the other. 13 years after the agreement was signed. critics say the strategy has failed. there were $23290.00 homicides reported in mexico in just the 1st 8 months of this year, according to statistics from the nonprofit group gal sign commune. and while the homicide rate over the past 5 years shows that violence has begun to play, hell,

4:48 pm
cooperation will only be possible if the u. s. does more to stem the flow of illegal weapons crossing the border into mexico. both countries have stated their commitment to curbing violence. admitting that a drastically new approach is necessary, what's uncertain is if willingness alone will be enough to finally turn a corner on the most violent period in mexico's history. my name is lap a low al jazeera mexico city. to lebanon's main public hospitals have scaled back their services because of a strike by staff demanding better pay. they've been affected by the countries unprecedented economic crisis that has seen the salaries good on in value zenato. now from beirut, this is the emergency room of the main public hospital in the lebanese capital. only patients with life threatening cases are being treated. members of staff have been on strike for nearly a week. the country's 2 year old economic crisis led to the collapse of the local currency, and that's why they want better pay to have them under to be in latin,
