"Bellillo TB reporting there from Johannesburg Jon Pierre Bemba, the former warlord and vice president and the Democratic Republic of Congo was up to last June. A man facing years behind bars for alleged war crimes is today seeking seventy five million dollars from the court responsible for detaining him, the international criminal court that is he sowing the ICC for financial damages. He incurred while in detention and trial for war crimes. Now these related to crimes troops under his control were alleged to have committed in the neighboring country, the Central African Republic, the court overturned, his war crimes conviction last year. But now he's claiming damages for loss of seven aircraft three villas in Portugal and acids. He said we're allowed to rot. Mr. Bemba's lawyer is Peter Hain. There are really three aspects of reclaim the first is a compensation for the fact that he's been in custody for ten years as an. Innocent man, the second is the amount of legal costs. He's happy to expend in freeing himself from detention, but the most significant aspects of the claim is the ICC froze is worldwide assets. And they manage them all protect them all all preserve them in any way, ten years later. He's about forty two and a half million euros pocket. Making freezing orders over people's property is a very serious thing to do and shouldn't be undertaken lightly. If you if you apply freezing orders and courts in in Britain, you would be expected to even deposit the amount potential damage with the court, you might cost by them and Satan cannot allow people just to get around pursuing what some courts referred to as the laws nuclear weapon likely and with impunity. That was Peter Hain lawyer. For bemba. You're listening to Newsday on the BBC World Service with meat shaima fell here in our studios. Good morning chief, you've just joined us Carney sharp is outside parliament in Westminster more from her and her guests on one of our headline stories, of course, Britain and British MP's voting today on whether or not to leave the European Union with an deal. Another headline California is imposing an indefinite moratorium on the death penalty. Let's get a sports bulletin now with Al Ross good morning. Good morning. Be breaking news. Is Cristiano Renaldo is good at football. Who knew a Tuesday seeing one of the great comebacks of European football event is going into their home leg in the Champions League to nil down to athletic Madrid. Cristiano Renaldo is eighth Champions League hat trick was the difference. Three nil on the night. Three two on aggregate. We can speak to Italian football journalist meaner resume K firstly main event is half this long and fruitful Champions League history. But where there's last night rank. Properly and the best that they've managed to achieve in terms of a comeback, and especially against attach Cambridge who we continue being told. You know, hasn't been beaten by an Italian side and considering their performance in the size leg. There was a lot of worry. They will manage this. Now instead on the ice will be page Bessette osteo when they when they want independent now and then lost that last minute penalty to out and he managed to oversee converse take around Madrid true. But this was a great night for them. They had it in them. They always said that we believe that we going to overtime this result insurance. We have the superstar who makes the difference. And we have the coach who we believe in two. Now, you mentioned the superstar. He has rather been lacking that rile Madrid swagger in the Champions League. At least since he moved to Sharon that appears to be not the case anymore. Yeah. With this is a lot of the questions that have been also in Italy at the moment is that he's been great when it's come to the league. But in actually just bringing forward that superstar status to champion Zeke. It's been a little bit knocking exactly how you've said it. And then people have taken criticizing the coach for that reason saying they're not paying the tactics that bring out the best and Renaldo that team is too cautious. There's not enough attacking impetus to weenie highlights the Brennan's that Rinaldo conjoined front. He's instead left isolated. So the tactics change you can see that you were a lot more courageous going forward. They play the game then suffocated essential in every single way forward and played a game that suited the full morale Madrid Stein Renaldo he had his teammates around him. He felt the belief of everyone there the size pages short compact style of football, and you can see what Rinaldo can do when he's paying for sign that really do want to go out there. Pose they're attacking solid play and not simply defense, but they're not the only ones because apart from Brown Madrid all of the pre-tournament favorites are still in the Champions League. So what chance do you have of going all the way I think considering the fact that Real Madrid around and perhaps fierce GED what they're looking at the moment is possible and at the half Spanish city as well. Although they didn't quite have the history that the Bosnian any event have. But all the way they've been talking about the final since the start lake. They had said at the time I've only ever lost during Allders around Madrid Barcelona with messy so now he has the super strong. And honestly, that's what they expect from him. A lot of money semi the trophy. Will do exactly I mean, thank you very much for your time in a resume on Tuesdays tense and nervous Champions League tie between inventors and Athletico. There was another tie that was far less nervous. Manchester City seven Schulkin nail the German site out ten two on aggregate. Samantha city joining Manchester United. Spurs.
