how long. it talian journalist stefan yellin miti has followed the case of assad those disappearance she does not believe there was murdered on a point of religious dispute. day. why has an italian journalist been following the case of a lebanese a man who disappeared in libya. the answer there is an italian connection to the story three tickets were booked in the name of. and his two companions alitalia flight eight eight one heading from tripoli to rome. the libyan authorities requested urgent entrance visas for us and yacoob from the
italian embassy in tripoli their french be uses issued in beirut were cancelled. there is evidence the passports of assad her and his companions were altered. on that evening the thirty first nine hundred seventy eight souther and his two companions were driven to the departure terminal of tripoli airport. exit stamps found later in the passports were dated on that day. but did they actually leave libya. what is known is that three men carrying their passports and bearing their names did board the flight to rome. shortly before midnight the alitalia plane landed in rome airport.
men carrying the passports of a man who saw our souther and shaikh mohammed who had entry visas stamped. he. a transit to use it was issued for the man carrying the passport of. his passport has to this day never been recovered. the three men left the airport after midnight. the libyan embassy in rome it is believed that the three men spent the night here. the next morning september the first nine hundred seventy eight two men checked in at the holiday inn hotel in rome. one was bearded and dressed in a religious robe the other was in civilian clothes the two men checked in for two
rooms and paid in cash for a one week stay at the hotel. ten minutes later the two men were seen leaving the hotel both dressed in civilian clothes and carrying luggage. ten days after the disappearance of the a man italian police discovered the luggage and passports of other. cool in the hotel in rome. but cynical move toward. something. if it can make it through either. the food or not.
the italian authorities interrogated crew and passengers of the alitalia flight as well as staff at the airport and the hotel after a nine month investigation in a nine hundred seventy nine the italian authorities concluded that a man with us and his two companions had not entered italy the libyan regime continued to insist that a southerner and his two companions had left tripoli for libyan assertions were unconvincing is especially as gadhafi kept changing his story. how well it. must be a lot of this if you want to treat it mean anything with. the killer massage and they will be said.
of the feeling that when you talk a. little more the more vulnerable than even the many. others what i think of the bit. we have to be really sure what to do. though to get you out of the idea we're going to really going to do what he would never let me leave you. we're under thirty was only an example move. on the muscles of. the lebanese government and the families of those missing remain suspicious of gadaffi declarations they held the libyan leader responsible for the abductions. there were also questions around a possible italian role in the strange affair. and our
start up it should be only date anti cause the level of the sport he said. much. of the story of the. libya trip all the pertinent issues of its security. to sensibly. equipped for. a year after the disappearance of. other and his two companions the libyan regime share details of its preliminary investigation to italian authorities. italy contested the libyan account saying its conclusions were flawed to counter these charges the libyan regime produced employees who testified to the departure of the a man and his two companions from libya. al jazeera met former
immigration officer abdurahman go away lawyer who was working in tripoli airport on the night the man and his two companions disappeared. we went with abdirahman go to his former workplace at the immigration office. it was here in december nine hundred seventy nine that he is then boss called omar kuwait or had ordered him to bear false witness it would. be her. and then the bin. we. feel. for the attic and the kid that.
limits the matter they kill them. for good little if a debate about the best let them have their whatever that. has it and i'm only alice does that to be in the. middle. another libyan immigration officer who worked at the airport was also compelled by libyan security agents to testify that he had seen. her and his two companions leave tripoli. but that and with him because i really really believe. from what was going on the sort. of the case you know. i am going to show that. only the.
which of late i want to share that. it's very very well laced with water and peace with a different. mood with a shirt with the father because. with the health care that i had in the. shop with me. on january the first one nine hundred eighty abdurahman go away or was summoned by libyan intelligence to confirm his testimony. but the. letter was written. but babbitt really sort of put off. the year was. while he. would be headed there was indeed the.
one week later the two immigration officers and the takumi will each summoned for further questioning by the libyan judiciary. criticism i took. with me to the battle could. you could. but. this is. what was going on at that. i mean when you have. had the vision due. to weather shifted around the. there was a missile sub. but there was that but what about it was a saw that there was there was a battle there for
a while about as there was that the level had. been two thousand and five duffy asked italian prime minister silvio berlusconi to reopen the investigation into the case of. course in rome subsequently reported that there was no new evidence but the report hinted a father and his two companions might have disappeared in italy. italian lawyer has followed the case of the disappearance he's skeptical of the reports from the court ordered by berlusconi.
but. after the fall of gadhafi regime in two thousand and eleven a number of his former aides spoke out about what had happened to. other abdurrahman a shell game of former libyan foreign minister claimed the man and his companions had been killed by palestinian militant abu nidal who had been close to gadhafi. another top aide of the libyan leader ahmed ramadan claimed during a t.v. interview following his arrest that gadhafi is communication secretary. was linked to the disappearance former government minder who is skeptical of ramadan
claims. at the. other end fee. then they are not. only among the mom of the shut the sons of gadhafi secretary. have denied the accusations against their father they produced his death certificate stating he died on march the seventh one thousand nine hundred seventy eight in a plane crash five months before. visited libya. major abdul muna m l who also heard stories about the fate of the other has. said that. there.
were numerous different and sometimes contradictory stories about the fate of him. and his two companions the uncertainty is compounded by the fact that no bodies have ever been discovered. in beirut the lebanese judiciary and the families of those missing have never been convinced by reports from libya. what happened. he had left. but then he.
really. besides stories of their murder there have also been reports of the him and his two companions being held at one time or another in secret prisons in libya. a former prison guard. was arrested after gadhafi his downfall he was himself in prison and. sources from inside the prison were so days held told al-jazeera of what he revealed under interrogation. my sewed claimed he had guarded. between one thousand nine hundred ninety two and nine hundred ninety five in a secret prison in tripoli. we were not granted permission to meet and interview must so rude. the former prison. in north tripoli holds another story. al jazeera visited the place with witness.
shortly after gadhafi was killed lebanon sent an investigation team to tripoli which visited a number of jails and detention centers in several cities. was. the team pave the way for a high level lebanese diplomatic mission to meet libya's new leaders the delegation included the son of. the lebanese and libyan governments have agreed to make renewed efforts to investigate the secret prisons and to question former members of the libyan regime.

pope francis has admitted to feeling shame about the church's failure to prevent what he called repugnant sexual abuse by priests is on a two day trip to ireland the first papal visit there in thirty nine years has just addressed a huge crowd at a festival for families at croke park sports stadium in dublin earlier he met irish survivors of clerical religious and it's abuse in the catholic church the fokker reports. the pope's visit to ireland at this moment of crisis in the kind of the church was always going to set the global agenda of how the the can tackles its legacy of child sex abuse apart from. insisted ways any time. number or so could be going to show. i cannot fail to acknowledge the great scandal caused in ireland by the abuse of young people by members of the church charge of the responsibility for that metatron education the failure of ecclesiastical authorities to adequately address these repugnant crimes has rightly
given rise to outrage i myself share the sentiments ireland's prime minister has been at the helm of social reforms in the country including the recent popular vote to legalize abortion long prohibited by the catholic church he said it was time to build a new relationship between church and state people kept in dark corners behind closed doors cries for help that went on heard. and these wounds are still open. and there is much to be done to bring about justice and truth and healing for the victims and survivors be holy father we ask that you use your office and influence to ensure that this is done here in ireland and also around the world. in this saga of widespread abuse of children by members of the catholic church protests were inevitable. these people are looking for action not words from the vatican i do get the feeling bob's. trust will not be returned within the catholic population
from simply what will process say to the common population he needs me to see our actions are going to be pretty serious. going to be. alone in silent prayer the leader of one point two billion catholics. later in the day away from the campus he met eight i were survivors of religious and institutional abuse but ninety minutes likely the most emotional moment of his thirty six hour visit for all involved pope francis has gone further than any pope in acknowledging the church's wrongs but as new allegations of abuse continue to surface the biggest challenge to the church in ireland is the church itself. pope francis is an island and arguably one of the darkest moments in the church's modern history become pope francis universally respected as
a true reformer reinvigorate face and what the catholic church stands for. thousands of the faithful croke park stadium to hear pope francis speak his visit is a moment of joy for many believe is an island a country where more than seventy percent of the population identify as catholic but as the country embraces secular values irish society regardless of faith wants to hold the church to account the past longs. so let's go live now to knead barker he's in need is it fair to say that the visit has essentially been overshadowed by maybe scandal. but it has been entirely overshadowed but it has been very central to the pope's visit particularly his first day anything of song and celebration here quote parkas over the joy of this event contrasts sharply with what we saw earlier on in the day where pope francis arrived here knowing full
well that he will be under pressure to address head on the historical. claims of clerical abuse against thousands of priests in this country and he did as i mentioned in my report there go much further than his predecessors but the feeling is amongst many survivors many victims of clerical abuse or abuse within religious institutions is that he could have gone much further how by spelling out exactly how the factor can could bring those who have been accused of sexual abuse to justice by opening better can files and sharing them with respective governments and respective law enforcement agencies to could bring about convictions and thirdly also to make sure any senior religious figures thirds have been accused of perhaps covering up abuse are no longer in positions of power in the church these are the kind of things survivors wanted and it was probably what pope francis didn't say probably what he did say that will be the focus of his main critics here
and what can we expect from the pope tomorrow. when as we've seen today a very grueling first day already for the eighty one year old pontiff another very long day for him tomorrow seven thirty one hour trip in total but he heads west he goes to county mayo to the shrine in new york a major shrine here in ireland a huge religious significance to people here he's expected to speak to vast crowds . in the west of ireland before returning to the capitol where it will hold a massive open air mass in phoenix park the figure of five hundred thousand people has been mentioned by the author a tease he will of course follow in the footsteps of the last pope to come here in one nine hundred seventy nine john paul the second bag then three quarters of the population came out to greet the pope that is in irish history the largest mobile
isolation of irish people in its entire history will pope francis be able to replicate that it's unlikely but most certainly his presence here in ireland will be received joyfully by the faithful of we've seen this evening but i think his critics were also the most certainly out of the streets of dublin staging demonstrations to bind to the pope more clearly and more vocally some of the strongest allegations made against the church and his papacy you park i thank you very much for joining us now of a skype from dublin is susan alone she is co-founder of the adoption rights alliance which advocates for victims of institutional abuse thank you very much for being with us so we heard that the pope did address the issue of abuse within the church and his shame as he talked about in these cases what was what he said today in enough for you. know because i think he's actually narrow the focus to victims of clerical sex abuse whilst in aren't in tact to gratian or are victims of
clerical insurance and abuse are actually women in particular and those who were actually in one thousand nine hundred or in the tens of thousands of women who were incarcerated in modern maybe homes whose children were taken away from them simply because they were unmarried mothers and in those children thousands and forced adoption parsee each reach was there also accommodated in the only state so he really is only he. he kind of sticking to the fringes of abuse and and those levels of abuse which i understood why he around was the character of sex abuse but in fact in arents the model pieces far greater so how it so beyond i mean with what we heard the prime minister urging him to to acknowledge and take action against institutional base and the the promise was came to him to mention both sides of the the issues that you've talked about as well but beyond the words of the pope if
what what actions can you expect if you think that your area has not really been focused on well all i can all i can do is actually refer back to my own this to the vatican in february two thousand and fourteen i was part of a group that accompanied shulman elite and her daughter jane libertad and steve coogan of course should i mean it was a subject the subject of the mina and steve coogan was the director and producer and screenwriter. and naturally revealed to the world scenario stark contrast the absolute inhumanity incarceration on married mothers in gary's homes to retire and and after so many years in infamy his case her son was training her peers when he was forcibly taken from her and trafficked to the us for profit and for adoption now i actually was part of a group of very close creep no more than ten people who mesh with. the current.
close friend an archbishop and his private secretary and we had a private few meena and afterwards that was there in a second session and i was very robust in my questioning on the current parents an argentinean friend he told the power to toll some of the views expressed in the film and. continue. to sociate the pope did not regard the film isn't a catholic bashing the pope regard to the share properly and relation to historical events in our minds and yes he had nothing to say to the musher he own you were hardly back to archbishop jerram and martin you was the archbishop of dublin ireland but somebody who is a non connection to vatican in rome and i just was i was just beyond disappointed
with that you know they had so much warning about the and strange that accompanies that and of course in our times though the appalling revelations about the almost eight hundred babies and children married to suit system in a form of there may be only two and he is directors are representatives response was to refer me to an archbishop in dublin so i make no apology for the fact that i have little faith in this current pontiff that he's actually addressing these mary very grave she rights abuses and any serious level susan thank you very much indeed to feel thoughts of a thank you thank you. that's exactly a year since man launched a military crackdown on revenge of muslims in rakhine state hundreds of thousands of people a fed to neighboring bangladesh in what the u.n. described as
