11:00 am
from doha. have a great day. >> hello this, is the news hour on al jazeera. an agreement is reached from the world's biggest trade deal covering 12 countries and 650 million people. also in the news the u.s. military promises a transparent investigation as it reveals more details on the airstrike that killed 22 people in kunduz. and turkey's president meets with e.u. leaders over the growing refugee crisis. >> hello, we'll have all your sports including brandon rogers
11:01 am
has been shown the door at liverpool. will he now be laying out the welcome matt to another club. >> well, it took five years, but negotiators have finally reached a deal on the world's biggest trade agreement, something that will sweep aside barriers over the pacific and could effect everything to the cost of milk to the cost of treating cancer. this was a moment that was announced. >> we the trade ministers o are pleased to announce that we have successfully concluded the trans-pacific partnership. [applause] >> let's give you some details. it's a 30-chapter trans-pacific partnership negotiated in
11:02 am
secret, so we don't yet know much of the details. there have been leaks, however, and there has been a summary released that we'll run through now. it will open up markets to foreign companies. proponents say that it will bring jobs and growths. the critics say that the local industries won't be able to compete with the big nationals. it could bring an end to cheap generic drugs. and a dispute court will be set up to sue governments for not enforcing the new rules. patty culhane will be here to talk us through a little bit of this. the fact that it was negotiated in secret put people off the long process. >> that's what opponents have been saying. they say big companies have been allowed to help with
11:03 am
negotiations, but the general public does not know anything about it, including congress. the recently selected items they want to see highlighted. they're saying 18,000 tariffs will be removed from american products and they're highligh highlighting new protections for workers. they'll ban child labor, but as you mentioned we don't know the details. we won't see the wording for as long as a month. this is going to be incredibly control of in the united states. the american public remembers nafta, the agreement between u.s. and canada and mexico and saw jobs leave for mexico. they were able to get fast track authority where members of congress can vote yes or no, they can't change the agreement. but we've seen allies, environmentalists and other
11:04 am
groups come out and say they hate the deal and they'll work with congress to try to kill it. >> a quote from president obama on the tpp saying that we can't let countries like china write the rules on the economy. they want to get the great pivot to asia and balance out china. >> he sees this as a key part of that pivot. it's not just the military move, this is a key focus on that pivot to asia. this is not just about these 12 countries. the over all hope from some of these trade negotiators is that if it becomes workable, if it becomes the framework then other countries like china and india will have to join in, and that could have a huge impact on the entire globe. >> patty culhane in washington there. the u.s. one of the drivers of that deal. we want to go to john hole man to get a different perspective. we heard from the united states. asia is a big part of the deal. but you've got south american
11:05 am
countries, latin american countries involved. how will this deal positively or negatively effect mexico? >> well, mexico really needs to be part of this deal in any ways because it does more than 70% of its business with the united states. so really what the united states wants in international deals and international partners mexico needs to be a part of that. as patty was saying this is really an update of the nafta deal from mexico that it had before with the u.s. and canada for the last 20 years. it is seen as an upgrade of that. so it's pushing for this as well it does see the down sides, and it's new trade partners who have been praye trade rivals in asia, it does not want it to be elbowing in on its business with the united states. especially in the car industry. what it fears is that japan, who is a member of this trade group, will be able now to use cheap
11:06 am
parts from asian countries like asia and thailand, who are not part of the group and export those cars to cuff in on the car industry that mexico has going to the u.s. that's what it's been arguing for. that's been one of the big sticking points in agreeing with these deals especially in the last few days. >> thank you, john holman for that perspective from mexico. we'll go to atlanta, georgia, where the deal was signed, and the director of the public citizens global access to medicines program. we talked to peter already about the deal. medicine is a big part of this. explain to our user what in your view the issues are with signing this deal? >> wouldn't you know it. the skype cuts out just as we're about to talk to him. we'll try to talk with peter in just a moment. we'll move on. i'm being told, peter, can you hear me? >> yes, i've got you.
11:07 am
>> we've got you. all right. >> so tell me, explain to our viewers why you don't like the deal, particularly for medicine. >> well, it's disappointing to hear the white house scare tactics that you hear about china writing the rules. you hear big business write the rules for other countries' laws. it will mean expansive farm suit tall monopoly powers. the deal gives the pharmaceutical powers new rights to knock competition off the market and allow them to price at any point they see fit. unfortunately pharmaceutical companies find that they make money selling at high prices to the few rather than low prices to the many, and we're afraid that this is going to cost lives. >> i guess i'm saying is it all final now. i know it has to be signed off on and other governments will have something to say. are there any loopholes and i
11:08 am
way for you to protest what you see are the issues with it? >> there will be some legal scrubbing and a few unsolved issues, but at this point it's more about the votes and defeating tpp in the public square. it's a very close fast track vote in the u.s. congress. there are concerns about medicines, labor and environment. we do not think that this is an agreement that will shore up those standards but will attack those standards than try to offer compensating fragments in concern. it will be a fight going forward, and we'll continue to work on it. >> i know this is a slightly difficult thing for you to explain, but i'm still going to ask you, look at it from the other perspective. you believe that lives will be at cost here. but on the flip side, how are they going to win out of this? >> well, they're going to--their
11:09 am
ability to charge monopoly prices they'll be earning more money. they did not get everything they wanted in the deal alarmly because courageous groups have been standing up against them over the years. we've seen some mix of standards, but make no mistake it makes the rules worse. there is no good tpp. it will make it harder for medicines. companies will say they need this to fund innovation. but companies don't base medicine prices on research cost. they base it on whatever we'll pay to save the lives of those we care about. we put public money in the innovations. the companies have had extensive protections. there is no evidence bases that we need the rules in the tpp to advance medical inhibition. this is really about the pharmaceutical industry lobby
11:10 am
and it's tremendous influence on washington getting some of what they want. >> thank you so much for your time today. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> now the u.s. military has been speaking about a subjected u.s. airstrike on a hospital in k unduz on saturday. this is the one that killed 22 people. many from the medical charity doctors without borders. the aid group is calling for an independent investigation. in the last few hours u.s. army john campbell held a press conference on the strike. >> we have now learned that afghan forces advised they were taking fire from enemy positions and asked for air support from the u.s. forces. an airstrike was called to eliminate the taliban threat and several civilians were accidently struck. this is different from reports which u.s. forces were threatened and the airstrike was called on their behalf. i've ordered a thorough investigation into this tragic
11:11 am
incident and the investigation is ongoing. the afghans had ordered the same. if errors were committed we'll acknowledge them. we'll hold those responsible accountable and we'll take steps to ensure that mistakes are not repeated. >> roslind jordan is following this one for us. general campbell cannot say outright whether this airstrike was conducted by the book or not. why is that? >> well, mainly because they're now there investigation he is under way. one conducted by the afghan government, one by nato and one by the pentagon. this is obviously the general's efforts to not sway or tamper with the outcome of any of those investigations. and given the great concern that the u.s. military may have ignored treaties not to target the area around the hospitals not to say that the hospital
11:12 am
itself certainly he's trying to move delicately here would be fair to say, kamal. >> u.s. troops, well, the u.s. due to stay in afghanistan until 2016. does this raise questions whether they should be staying long or o not or whether the afghan military will be ready or not? >> it is raising questions. and there was a hastily arranged press conference with general campbell did touch on that factor. should they be doing more to support the afghan military. why aren't afghan troops capable of holding off or beating back the taliban themselves? why did they need to call in u.s. air support in order to try to start regaining control of kunduz. a lot of these questions are going to be raised again on tuesday before the senate armed services committee where general campbell is expected to give an update on the u.s.-led mission
11:13 am
to support afghanistan in these final two years or year and a half, i should say of the u.s.' military presence in afghanistan. clearly what happened is gets , they're going to have to satisfy their questions, one, about the afghan military, and two, if the u.s. military was following it's own rules of engagement. >> thank you, ros. plenty more ahead on this news hour here on al jazeera. there is more fighting erupting in the occupied west bank. a 13-year-old palestinian has been shot dead. and how a car wash helps to cover brazil's biggest corruption scandal. and in sport, the bangladesh player is jailed after being charged with torturing a child.
11:14 am
>> the turkish president, president erdogan, is in bruce he wills meeting with e.u. leaders there. the issue is of refugees traveling to europe topping the agenda there. erdogan is accusing the europe of double standards. his country continues to welcome refugees despite limited international help. >> we never discriminated against any of them by saying they're muslim, yazidi or christian, we accepted them all. and we given all the support that has come to turkey and other countries remaining at $470 million. however, we continue to maintain our open-door policy. >> let's go through the numbers, which really do speak for themselves. turkey hosts by far the largest
11:15 am
number of requiran refugees of any country in the world, getting up to 2 million there. lebanon, such a small country, we'll come over here so you can see. such a small countr they're hosting 1 million. jordan, 628,000 in. and up until august this year just 441,000 syrians had actually applied for asylum. that might sound like a big number, but that's only 10% of the 4 million syrians who have fled this war. let's go to southern turkey. on the topic of president erdogan, he's speaking from a position of strength. those in order shows that turkey is taking the numbers and it is, in its view, doing the right thing. >> ster any, can you hear me? it's kamal.
11:16 am
>> absolutely. in a press conference, they said they have 2.5 million refugees,--i can hear you. >> sorry about that. >> can you hear me, kamal? >> yes, i've got you, stef. we just have a very long delay. my apologies for interrupting, you carry on. >> should i go on? >> hosting 2.2 million refugees in compare to 250,000 in europe. and he stressed we've been doing this for over hour years and it's only just starting to feel it. really a message that turkey has been doing everything that it could on its own for an extremely long period of time. of course, the only way to stop this to end the war and highlight what they've used all along is responsible for all of.
11:17 am
he said there were three things that needed to be done to solve this. one of them is to train and equip. training and equipping the rebel forces on the ground to fight assad, and also something that again president erdogan has been pushing for years along it's border for refugees to be held there, and a no-fly zone. all of these things is contentious and very difficult to push through politically. one thing also he really kicked on about this point was the kurds. the pkk and the ypg, well, actually the ypd is a political group fighting within the group, has had incredible success fighting isil. he said they're just as the terrorist that isil is, and he expected the european union to back him on this. the wng has been backed by the u.s. we know that the discussions will go on into the night. i think it's safe to say that there will be difficult issues
11:18 am
to tackle here. what is happening in syria, you now have so many different countries with so many different interests thinking this is the right way, this is the right way, incredibly difficult to solve it, and all the while the fighting goes on. people continue to die and people continue to lead. many people will tell you unless there is a political solution to this, the problem of refugees of people having to flee their home will continue. >> stephanie dekker life in southern turkey for us. thank you. >> well, many syrian refugees hoping to reach europe will make that dangerous sea journey. there are many who are desperate to leave despite all the risks. >> a major transit hub a chance to rest before one of the hardest parts of the journey. smugglers hang around cafes waiting for customers. this man offered $825 seats on a dinghy to a greek island.
11:19 am
syrian refugees don't have a right to work in turkey so many don't see a future here. >> there are no job opportunities in turkey. if there are any you have to work more than 12 hours a day for $300 to $400 a month. many people see a syrian, they think they can make them work more and earn less. >> they plotted a route between the turkish coast and the greek island. they've twice made it halfway across, but the cost guard caught them. next time they'll swim at night. >> i don't want to make money. i just want to achieve my dreams and live like any humans want to live. i lost my future in syria. what is happening is something that you can't even describe. >> most of these refugee also say the same thing. they have a basic human desire for a peaceful life with
11:20 am
opportunities. what turkey has is significantly opened its borders to syrian refugees. it's policy has always been based on the idea that eventually they would return home, not settle here. those who try to enter the workforce end up in a low pay, no rights, and no protection. yasir, a professional footballer who has played in the syrian national team made it to europe. but he said living in austria was too much of a culture shock. he came back to turkey. >> well, i think for a young muslim person european countries can be hard. they will tell you to say your prayers and after that you can go to bars without problem. people tell you, you can do whatever you want to do, but i could not handle that situation. >> these people will tell you putting their lives in the hands of smugglers, spenting their last dollar is the last thing
11:21 am
they want to do. but as the war in syria drags on, more and more refugees are seeing life in europe as the only long-term solution. bernard smith. in southern turkey. >> a 13-year-old palestinian has been shot dead in fighting between palestinians and israeli security forces in the occupied west bank. the crashes follow the death overnight of a palestinian man. his funeral has taken place. jerusalem remains under tight security measures following days of tension. let's go to west jerusalem and talk to mike hanna about this. i heard you say use the word unprecedented to be about--the lockdown affect on the old city and this is really quite quite significant, isn't it? >> yes, it is, indeed, even at the height, the whole of the old city was not locked down in the way that it has been over the past two days. essentially the only people allowed in were israeli
11:22 am
citizens, of course, tourists, and then on the palestinian side only those who are residents in the old city or who owned businesses there. no one was allowed in, that has never happened before, and an indication of how seriously the netanyahu government sees the situation, and also the extent to which it will go if it's belief that heightened security is a way to deal with the o ongoing crisis rather than looking at what would be the cause. >> any indications about where the israeli government goes next. prime minister netanyahu has a meeting this evening. >> the cabinet will be meeting shortly. there has been an extended jewish holiday which ended at sunset today. this is an extended opportunity
11:23 am
for the cabinet to get together and discuss the issue. immediately upon his return he had a meeting with his military chiefs and spoke of the increased demolition of homes of those accused of carrying out acts of violence. he has started introducing new steps of talking about it, but it's at this extended cabinet meeting in the coming hours which his policy will be more formally expressed and also made public. >> we'll talk with you begin when we get more information. mike hanna is live in west jerusalem. a russian fighter jet flew into turkish air space. turkey summoned russia's ambassador. >> it's a recurring nightmare for all the air forces involved. you've got the israelis, the
11:24 am
americans, turkish air forces, and flying all over a very restricted air space. this latest violation came on saturday when a fighter crossed from syria into turkey and was intercepted, and then escorted after one warning back into syria. now the russians did apologize. they said this was a navigation error. it is a reminder of all the air forces in this region of what could happen if things went wrong. >> androecial groups in syria have called on regional states to forge an alliance with russia and the country. it consists of 41 groups including the free syrian army.
11:25 am
>> the syrian army said that this is part of a military campaign to recapture the region. syrian military sources say that the airstrikes are weakening defenses before a ground assault begins. isil is not present in this corner of syria. that is why the opposition believes russia's objective is to help the government change the balance of power on the ground. >> we are the free syrian army. we're not linked to isil or others. >> many of the rebels there still fight under the barn of the free syrian army. they announced the joint military operations room to confront what they're calling the russian aggression. among their partners al nusra front. the opposition said that the agee lens to al-qaeda is being used by syrian and russian government to justify their attacks.
11:26 am
>> al nusra is all over syria, not just homs. the group has relations with other brigades and people because it's fighting the regi regime. they're using the nusra as an excuse to nobody in the region. >> while russian strikes have targeted some isil positions the majority has--russian officials have made it clear that isil is not the only target in their area of campaign. president vladimir putin himself said that nusra is on the list. >> al nusra front is one of the most powerful opposition groups. the u.s. considers it a terrorist organization and targeted groups affiliated with it in syria.
11:27 am
>> honestly speaking i haven't heard about the plans to counter our work in syria on the part of the u.s. or anybody else. >> the u.s. may have protested against russia's airstrikes, but some in of the opposition are concerned that the two powers may have more in upon than thought. al jazeera, beirut. >> we'll be in baghdad where parts of the green zone have been opened to the public after more than a decade. why angola's government is under pressure why it jailed 15 men back in june. a year where they suffered 95 losses in a single season is a very different story for the texas rangers. we'll have that and the rest of the sport.
11:28 am
11:29 am
11:30 am
>> the cops is a legalized gang... it makes me scared for everybody >> fear and distrust in baltimore... >> they've just been pepper spraying people at very close range... >> years of tension between the community and police erupt... >> she was on her way home to her kid, and she never made it... >> a former cop speaks out... >> if you had taken steps when a man was assaulted, maybe freddie gray didn't have to die. >> is there still a blue wall of silence in american cities? >> did somebody get shot? fault lines baltimore rising only on al jazeera america >> the trans-pacific nations have greed to one of the biggest deals in history. the trans-pacific partnership could affect everything from the price of milk to the cost of
11:31 am
treating cancer. in kunduz 22 people died when a hospital run by doctors without borders was hit. and president erdogan said that his country continues to accept refugees despite lack of help from other countries. turkey hosts nearly 2 million syrian refugees. let's go back to this story from afghanistan. kunduz, a week now since the taliban attacked that city. and since then the city has gone back and forth between the two sides. afghan forces do seem to have the upper hand now, though. we have more. >> the area is under control of afghan security forces, but i talked where the provincial council member he told me that
11:32 am
they're not sure that afghan security forces alone are capable to keep the--that the security of the city for long time. he said one of the international forces support in the ground and also afghan forces would not be able to keep the city for long. because he confirms a big number are still around the city. the outskirts of the city, and the provincial part of the city, and we're getting reports of the fighting going on. >> okay, let's go deeper into this because the issue in kunduz brings up the issue once again of the preparedness and readiness of afghan forces. we go to the founder and chief editor of war on the rocks. we've got numbers here from "the new york times." in afghanistan the united states
11:33 am
has spent about $65 billion to build the army and police forces. is that wasted money if in a situation like this how many years later you're still needing to call in the u.s. to help, and then look what happens as what happened with the hospital? >> it's too early to tell if this is wasted money. we still have u.s. forces in the country. just not enough time has passed yesterday. we knew and expected the afghan crucial forces would have problems holding parts of the country. the test is when the u.s. withdraws from the country. it can be if they're not able to hold areas, including kunduz the sixth largest city, that this money was wasted. >> u.s. forces or international forces can go in, train the army, train the police and you should do it this way or that way, but when it comes to the moment of the battlefield the
11:34 am
local forces are either not ready for this or they want to do it their own way. maybe there is a cultural breakdown. are there these sorts of issues? >> there are two real problems here. first, all the training in the world cannot instill a sense of nationalism in the afghan security forces that will make troops all across afghanistan care about the entire country. the second problem was the way we trained them. we trained them to be mainly checkpoint troops, to stop cars going by, conduct searches rather than conducted armed warfare. that's the problem that we're seeing. >> what can you go back to that first point, the nationalism. expand. why can't you get nationalism into an army of a country that should want to be standing on its own two feet as much as possible? >> the problem is that afghanistan is divided into multiple different ethnic groups scattered across the country. and different ethnic groups are predominant in different parts of the country. afghanistan has never really been a country in the way that you and i know.
11:35 am
they've never been a modern state with this sense of we-ness and nationalism. troops recruited from the north to fight in the south might not be as interested in winning those battles and risking their own lives for those battles. >> is it the same issue in iraq? the same issue that you told us about afghanistan, do they apply there? >> the sound has cut out. >> ryan, can you hear me? it's kamal here. >> okay, we'll leave it there. thank you for your time. we do appreciate it. >> in yemen government-backed troops continue to force their way to the capital of sanaa, which is still held by houthi rebels. living conditions for millions of yemenis are deteriorating. hashem ahelbarra has more on that. >> united against the saudi-led airstrikes in yemen.
11:36 am
these are supporters of the shia houthi rebels near the capital of sanaa. they say that the international community has failed the yemeni people. >> we came out to condemn the united nations and the women and children who were killed in the war, where are their rights. there is no justification of the attacks that target only women and children. >> yemen has been gripped by violence for months. there are shortages of food, fuel and medicine across the country. >> we are not getting enough cooking gas. we're going to fight over them. we're running out of cooking gas. the living conditions are very difficult. >> many goings ar--many gas
11:37 am
stations are out of service. yemen's humanitarian situation is getting worse every day. on the ground government troops backed by coalition forces are on the offensive in maryb. they say recapturing the entire province is just a matter of time. >> thank god we captured the road and people are moving along without coming under fire. all is going well. >> the warring factions remain divided, continued to continu to--determined to continue the fight. >> as we're talking a moment ago about troops in afghanistan and whether they're ready or not to deal with life without the u.s.
11:38 am
forces there. we've got ryan evans back, "new york times" talks about 500 million defense department program, you know, you're pointing at your ear piece, and i don't think you can hear me. >> no, we're going to leave it there. just doesn't want to cooperate today. we've talked about iraq. >> it would have been unthinkable to see traffic moving freely down this road. but since sunday parts of baghdad's heavily fortified green zone has been opened to the public.
11:39 am
the decision was made by president hyder al abadi and growing anger towards government security, corruption and poor public services. >> for 12 years the green zone or international zone, as it is officially known, has been closed to most iraqi citizens. it was turned into the administrative headquarters for coalition forces. today the compound is still surrounded by concrete walls, bashed wire and heavily guarded check points. it contains foreign embassies, the government offices and luxury homes of senior iraqi officials, which is why for many it symbolizes the disconnect between the leadership and it's people. >> this move won't last long. we may as well enjoy it as we can. it will add traffic to the main checkpoint as there will be more searches. trust me, this will be shut down
11:40 am
soon. >> the easing of some restrictions inside the green zone is surprising to many here. over the years it has been a frequent target for bombings and rockets. it comes at a time when the overall security across baghdad and across parts of iraq that remain under government control continue to decline. in recent months, militias which have been backed by iran has been accused by killing civilian men. they're accused of committing major abuses including possible war crimes. >> there has been a growing number of kidnappings. it's a clear indication that the government is not in control of these armed groups. there are countless check points across iraq and people are wondering what the exact role of these check points are. >> most iraqis are skeptical of the easing of restrictions into the green zone. saying it's yet another example of prime minister abady promising change, yet offering
11:41 am
very little, and that until he deals with issues like government corruption, power public services and very serious allegations of human rights violations the opening of a few roads into the green zone won't calm their anger. al jazeera, baghdad. >> work as air france has broken into airline headquarters. about 100 union activists rushed the building after breaking down the gate. they announced on friday that the company would have to cut jobs after failing to reach an agreement with pilots. kenyan teachers have suspended a five-week strike. a labor court had ordered them to return to work, but the unions will resume the strike in three months if talks with the government collapsed.
11:42 am
>> angola's government is under pressure to explain just why it jailed 15 men back in june. while rights groups say that the men are prisoners of conscious, the government said that they were planning a coup. this report from barnaby phillips. >> 15 young men, more than 100 days in prison and no charges against them. they include activists, who have been protesting for years against what they say is a lack of democratic freedom in angola. they were arrested in june when according to friends they gathered to discuss a book about peaceful protest against pre pre-presssive regimes. many spent weeks in solitary confinement. angola is led by the president who has been in charge since 1979. he government said that the men in prison were planning a coup, and he's preparing a case against them.
11:43 am
>> they were carrying out acts, which could have been preparation for the overthrow of the legitimately elected government. >> families of the detainees have tried to stage demonstrations. some of these have been broken up by the police. >> angola in theory the constitution guarantees democratic freedoms. in practice it takes courage to protest. freedom of expression, assembly association, all of that is curtailed in angola, and what these young people were trying to do was to exercise those freedom, but unfortunately that has been curtailed. so we're really calling on the authorities in angola to release them or bring them before competent court to try them. >> angola is a country of great contrasts one of a's leading coil producers where a few enjoyed fabulous wealth but most live in squalor. the fallen oil prices have hurt
11:44 am
the economy and made the government less tolerant of dissenting voices. >> on social media families and friends of the detainees are speaking out. increasingly anxious. they feel they have no choice. barnaby phillips, al jazeera. >> sports news is coming up on the news hour, including this. [ cheering ] >> yes, special guest notice locker room who are partying like it's 1986 all over again.
11:45 am
11:46 am
11:47 am
>> hello again. it's a corruption scandal that has reached some of brazil's most powerful people. something that first came to light when police discovered a money laundering operation at a car wash. >> these yellow and green ribbons, the colors of brazil's flag, have been tied around trees to show support for a police for the state which for the past year has put some of brazil's most powerful people behind bars. executives of oil giant petrobras, and high-level politicians have been arrested for the corruption. a money laundering scheme involving a car wash led federal police to the first indications that executives could be behind what is the largest corruption
11:48 am
scandal in brazilian history. the astonishing amount of money involved and how far up the political system the scandal goes enraged many. thousands have taken to the streets. >> operation car wash was possible precisely because it was led by a judge from a minor state. we know his ability. but who along with a group of young prosecutors took on the job to go after the corrupters, the big businesses, political leaders and not just those corrupted. >> the task never thought to be a simple one has surprised even them. >> in the first stage of our investigation we realized this involved high-ranking figures. we were arresting the owners of brazil's largest construction conglomerates. now we're in the 18th stage, and the investigation reach is only getting wider. >> with a recent jailing of the
11:49 am
leader of the workers party, they may go as high as dilma rousseff, who served with them before taking power. so far rousseff has not been accused bu. >> this is about a corruption scream that was arranged around the public institutions. we're arranging contracts with the ministry of planning, ministry of health, and brazil's largest bank. >> government critics say that they have already been uniquely successful in bringing the powerful to justice. but they also say unless the legal system is completely renewed, this, the biggest scandal in brazil's history, will be followed by one that makes it pale in comparison. >> well, here to talk sport. liverpool, football, something? >> yes, liverpool football
11:50 am
