5:08 am
through a military coup and held office for 22 years. the commission heard testimony from hundreds of witnesses. it found that jeremy's henchmen, including a personal hit squad called the jungle as were responsible for $44.00 specific crimes. journalists, former soldiers, political opponents, and civilians were targeted in a series of killings, torture and rapes, president adam barrow received the report earlier this month or the findings have only been made public on friday. jamie hasn't responded to the findings or earlier i spoke to barbara jello. the executive secretary off the truth reconciliation and reparations commission. he says there's been widespread backing for the commission . the man that everyone was and but the idea, the strategy of making all the hearings, public openness to transfer into the deliberate study bite to come on to make so that the process is visible to everyone that everyone knows exactly
5:09 am
what's happening in this country. that the process is credible and that no one can come around and say that the evidence was booked. so it is not meant essentially that everyone knows exactly what does buy it here. wonder that again is popularly important to be and we are hoping that the government that are already given commitment and i've made a commitment to implement that come in this coming sunday, been mixed on actually and as i head right now, the article in this i'm supposed to keep on, but of course the, i just got this on the use of not just have a profile again, anyone's sort of a guess on that. but i guess we hope that they would all have that they would qualify for misty. and then the more thought the read brody as a human rights lawyer who's been working with the victims of johnny's rule. and he

5:11 am
government to move forward and establish a tribunal and bring yet jeremy accomplishes to justice. but there's lots to be done. yeah, yeah. jeremy is still in equitorial again, and it's going to require a number of steps the establishment to betray, you know, either by gambia or together with the regional partners, the laying of charges the request of extradition. so we're still, we still have a ways to go, but i think it's likely that in the near future. yeah, yeah. jan may will be facing his victims in a, in a court of law. now at least 39 people have been killed in bangladesh after a fire vips through a ferry carrying hundreds of passengers. please say it broke out on the engine room in the middle of the night. then smith reports this overnight ferry was packed with

5:17 am
will shape the news in 2022. and one of the biggest issues is equal access to coven 19 vaccines. germany is one of the country's resisting calls to lift, to vaccine peyton's, which would allow poor nations to produce jazz for themselves. join a hall report from berlin. 2021 has been a tale of 2000 democrats, one in the global north where recovery became possible with the widespread delivery of vaccines. and one in the global south where locked downs have hit poor economies, harder with vaccines in much shorter supply. and the virus allowed to circulate more freely the result by year end of variant that threatens to turn the whole world back to square one. then overwhelming need for urgency to ensure that that same supplies are immediately inferior to countries in africa that are desperately waiting for profession supplies back scenes that are not about to
5:18 am
expire. campaigners talk of empty promises and of vast profits being put before lives. like here in germany, where the start up beyond tech partnered with the american pharmaceutical spend, pfizer expects to have made $18000000000.00 in 2021 with much more to come. that's not point 5 percent of growth added to germany's bottom line from just one company. thanks to the domestic production of vaccines and sales to rich countries, while just 7 percent of the whole continent of africa have so far been vaccinated. if there is one thing we have learned, is that norwegian, no country, no community and no individually save until we are all safe. the arrival of the oma from very and should be a wake up call. the things need to change, but will they? let's not lose hope and put
5:19 am
a lot of pressure on governments so that they change their position. and that they realize actually now with the kron that this is also going to, to last forever for germany, because they're going to be new variance. there needs to be new vaccines that needs to be new booster shots for forever. if we don't just start this. pandemic everywhere. $100.00 countries have joined the call for vaccine patrons to be temporarily waived. so the developing countries can produce their own britain and germany are among those firmly opposed with the g 7 instead pledging to donate a 1000000000 vaccine doses to the developing world a pledge that has not yet been met. so as the world battles, the omicron variant or the next one that comes along, it becomes clear that those vast profits are secure. while the health of the least well off remains at risk. and the pandemic looks set to roll on unhindered into 2022 and beyond. jonah whole al jazeera berlin,

our life. we are john. so we need to, we need to to do something different. because if you are, we need to live, we need to live. that's right. what christmas comes in a challenging time in the philippines a week after typhoon ry left a trail of destruction. the storm displaced more than 600000 people. clover 19 has hampered relief efforts. well, barnaby lo is joining us live from the capital. and then that sounds barnaby like despite the typhoon, people are really looking forward to mocking christmas this year. hi, elizabeth, it is christmas morning here in the philippines. and this being a majority catholic country. you can imagine how special and important this holiday is. but last year, filipinos were not able to celebrate christmas the way they would have wanted to because of severe coven, 19 cases. and also
5:22 am
a lot of restrictions that were imposed of by the government this year is a totally different story. especially here in metro manila, a capital as well as into rounding areas. because scott could be the 1900 cases have been low in the past several weeks, only in the 100 daily compared to our peak of more than 20000. just a few months ago during the height of the delta wave of infections. and so people have now been more confident to gather and be together with their families and friends. we have what we call here, the notch of wenna, which is the meal that families and friends share in their homes. during christmas eve going into christmas day. and a lot of families were happy that they were able to do this last night last night

5:25 am
pre dawn for 9 days of masses. last year, however, coven 19 restrictions forced this tradition move mostly online. the services are still streamed, but churchgoers believe praying as a community could be more powerful, especially during this challenging time. the country is not just really from the pandemic, but it is suffering from the aftermath of typhoon right. this is really about us convenience. these are the doing the spirit of christmas, which is the cross over the decided, especially of those who are suffering and those who had been, ah, devastated by the pipe, particularly supporting victims of typhoon roy has become an urgent concern. church leaders hope this christmas, their lock can extend a helping hand warrant to below al jazeera manila. now to more universities
