the question tonight is whether or not soldiers were adequately warned about its rare side effects serious life changing side effects. from this is on t.v. thanks for being with us the top stories this tuesday night pale so over the cost of living in the west bank leaves palestinian leaders desperate for calm while anxious israel watches for signs of another uprising against their will keep patient. promise saying the e.u. is trying to force gas prices down moscow's process of decreasing the anyone who has a problem with the company would also have a problem with the government. the one holds against taking sides in the syrian conflict said the rebels of the regime a share of the blame for the bloodshed is western powers are again accused of turning
a blind eye to regular trial city. and teachers walk out of american classrooms early in the school year and stuff strike over conditions that says more about a component to teach the children. next we speak to the man who's. corner of the legal battle against attempts to have the whistleblower extradited to sweden. who once faced up to chilean dictator augusto pinochet explains next to the tough task ahead of him. that's point today of the studio we have juillet ourselves as a lawyer a force that is judged famous for living high profile criminal cases drug trafficking corruption and terrorism he also issued the arrest warrant for forward chilean dictator augusto pinochet but this other song hello mr garcia when this have hello you said that everything that's happening to us is extreme and just as why is that. it isn't justice because the us is conducting
a criminal investigation into we kill x. and that's according to a few but nevertheless very reliable reports in this case dark it's mostly julian asuncion but other founders of the organization are also involved. in this respect it is absolutely clear to us that such investigation and prosecution i would join a list who is in essence just doing his job violates freedom of speech in the us it cancer you which prides itself in always defending freedom of speech of value firmly stipulated ensconce it to show that this is a big concern and launch leak this was the reason why i joined a sense decided to seek refuge from sweden in the ecuadorian embassy because he knew that he could have been extradited to the us or that's what it was all about and ecuador took this responsibility and granted diplomatic and political asylum to julian asuncion so mr assad and his defense team don't have to justify this
decision and he exercised his fundamental right here it is clear that political asylum was granted because julian essential is facing terrible injustice and this is what we are fighting against at the moment and we will continue to fight and prove that there is no reason to prosecute mr son who also julius songs. it's ready to give you statement he is ready to be questioned in sweden to submit himself to other procedures but only if he is guaranteed that it would not lead to a more complicated case in which he's right to freedom of speech and information would be violated so that it is nothing you say that you have proof that the us has contacted a secret investigation do you think it's legal to conduct such investigations. and make every country has
a practice of conducting secret investigations of course if there are good reasons for that we don't know whether the us has such a reason in this case but we know for sure that the case has been no good the u.s. government admitted the fact and we also know that no official charges have been brought against mr songe so far but it only means he's not charged at the moment they could as well charge him and danny time in the future with him we also know that the u.s. continues to give their day there on the case and theoretically it could be a source for indictment which would supposedly be used to issue an international arrest warrant. in line with us law we have sent a request to the american authorities to confirm that they're indeed conducting an investigation of is it if it is if that's so why then is mr is songes defense not taking part in it if the defense has no access to the case that in what ways the
own go on collection of evidence consistent with us legislation. as soon as we clear that up we'll be able to say whether in this case is in line with the law so florey the statements made by some prominent american politicians indicate that he could be indicted on where the espionage act ilog which has not been enforced since the cold war. i don't think mr a song she's a spy he merely published information he received from outside sources through we kill it's information that was available to thousands of people all he did was exercise he's right to freedom of information he received and shared that i'm much more surprised that there has been known best to get into the glaring crimes documented knows leaked reports featuring the us interference by different channels of information or proxies in various states with issues that have absolutely no
relation to their national security or the safety of the american citizens or defense but rather are indicative of the internal disorder in the united states. and this is this is you know this is before we talk about his possible extradition to the u.s. you said that julian assad is not avoiding prosecution it's with his avoiding extradition to the u.s. you also mentioned that this wish case against joined us sounds has no grounds and the charges that were brought against him are not there a clear what did you mean by that. but if. i meant that according to the information we have. this case i mean the testimony i'm chilling asuncion some documents that we were able to get our hands og in this case has no grounds for when he came to do you thing and the courts are not here to rule it on his extradition that is the jewel in the sun she told swedish prosecutors that it was
ready to cooperate he said that earlier today even before he left with a human offered to come back for questioning a few and he still ready to do their thing only now he's asking for the prosecutor to come to the u.k. and western officials this is not rebellious behavior on the contrary we respect the judicial system moves with you know we have no objective reasons not to trust him but we think that their approach is too harsh you know they want to leave their sons to come to sweden for western. in your opinion why did sweden take this as you say harsh approach usat that you can accept their terms under one condition but is there some legal framework for this how can a country guarantee that it won't extradite a person and to another country in the future. nothing is impossible we on our port are doing everything we can there are two thousand years here that we are considering over is the sure the u.k. has legally obliged to fulfill its wooden's demands to be there is the supreme
court only this ruler with what we think it is also their obligation to protect mr responses writing to political asylum value and we think that this ride into political asylum needs to be defended and they are going to this point we consider the problem of the i don't understand why you lean asuncion needs to be what present in person this question to be there that's there demand a fee but nobody can explain to us why these hasta happen in sweden not in london but in especially now when he has been granted political asylum and he's under diplomatic protection of the ecuadorian embassy. the guarantees have to be determined so how likely is it that's when being aware that death. wilkens practiced in the us will accept a sauce then. we don't know we don't even know whether swim in that would agree to extradite julian assange there is a certain procedure thirteen years or when any country doesn't administer gavel to leave hunnish mentees requested to extradite if
a person you know has to be assured by the request your theory except that the death penalty will not be carried out even if it is passed is that it's not even about administering the money not administering the death penalty any more it's rather a recognized right of political and diplomatic asylum or food there is a country ecuador and i state that it makes scenes. rather than criminal. so we can't really discuss extradition tell us julian assange has been granted political asylum noise that there is no chance of an axe or dish in requests to be satisfied the thing is this is a case of i was serving here in the region until human rights to ecuador is decision to grant you in a sanchez silence is not ok he's right for with you but that's not a running receipt he becomes one when it's recognized right now julian assange shoes are political arrest that cannot be prosecuted for the actions that serve as
the basis for his rather seeking asylum in the first place. and the problem is that he can't only exercise this constitutional right. actually he's exercising or right now he can't be attacked or arrested or storming the embassy would be inconceivable especially after those statements made by such international organizations as organization of american states and before that the u.n. in accordance with the security council resolution that in down the attacks on the british embassy in tehran last november and read to rated that graham he says of embassies are inviolate. i think britain made a whole threat. and yes he's exercising his rights but in a very limited fashion since he's living in the embassy under its protection you know exactly ever limited fashion that he has been granted asylum but he's staying in a small room with just four square meters and this could go on water for
a long time and this has simply tried to wear the british authorities out and. no i mean there are is no time limit to resolve this situation it diplomatic solution is possible i don't know whether this is being discussed and whether there is any progress and a legal solution is also possible of both countries go to the international court of justice who is rulings there are bound to be all in all julian assange and he supporters are powerless and the pace of political diplomatic or legal decision we can express our opinions we can contribute to the process by providing documents and expertise we can give advice on what to do but we can't make the final decision because we are not authorized to julian assange has a right to political asylum and it can be disputed and defended but he's not the one deciding the outcome. thank you very much mr herself would say thank you.
said to next question dates in believe me oh just table one of the execution date is enough for anybody to go through my life and. no more than forty percent of both of her if she didn't texas or not. why you know live in north darfur is not a. this is not you know we execute our convicted capital murder we have the highest execution rate in america we're not afraid to do it we do it well this becomes a point where death becomes. oh i never knew i hope. i
will get a letter your dad is due to be executed next week then as a fierce. money for you to know you can loose your want to be appearing with the in a manner of me saying that's a good time to go it's a locket and i would lead them into this to the death chamber. now it's trade till after they were due.

welcome to the sports update this tuesday with just under fifteen minutes to go until the first games kick off another big night of world cup qualifiers but as i. didn't andy murray beat holder novak djokovic in a five set thriller to win the u.s. open and trained his first grand slam title. while buying perfect three rusher arrive in israel a win to make it two wins from two in their world cup qualifying campaign because they were ten minutes and presidential praise awards russia's returning paralympians after the country finishes eighth best ever second place london twenty twelve. but first to tennis and britain's andy murray has claimed his maiden grand slam victory after beating holder novak djokovic in a five set thriller to win the u.s.
open the flushing meadows murray had been in for grand slam finals before and lost all of them but had a dream start on the arthur ashe court finally taking the first set which is always crucial against top of age twelve ten in a tie break after an hour and a half and then the britain went on to take a two sets to love lead after winning the next set seven five but the serbian who's won five grand slams wasn't beaten he steve through the third six two to pull a set back and then levelled the match by taking the four six three no one had come back from to sit down to win the us open for over sixty years a merry dug deep to make sure it wasn't going to happen this time watched on like a battery it's there alex ferguson and so sure connery's the scot so for the match the five two are almost five hours on court just which sent his return wrong that handed the world number three its first dance song title and britain's first since fred perry seventy six years ago. it was incredibly tough
match. and yeah well to say felt them in relief is probably. the best word i would use to you know describe feeling just. very very happy that i managed to come through because if i'd lost this one from two sets off what would have seen. be a tough one. is a bad loss you know there's no question about it. i'm disappointed to lose the match but. in the back of my mind i knew or did i give it all i really really tried to fight fight my back fight my way back through and. i had the great opponent today he deserved to win this grand slam what anybody i'm sure because. over the years he's been a top player has been so close last for finals now he is one and so i would like to congratulate. you know happy that he you want to. get sent to football and with the
world cup qualifiers mishearing this choose a evening russia are preparing for a tough game against israel in tel aviv to catch fabio capello trying day to know victory at home to northern island last friday in his first competitive game in charge and from israel has which van pull from. this is where things start getting tough for fabio capello as his side face its first major test of a world cup qualifying campaign for russia were easily expected to beat northern ireland israel especially in tel aviv unlikely to provide much stiffer opponents however the italian say is that his team will be playing to get all three points even though he believes this will be one of the most important games in trying to qualify for brazil automatically and i hope we qualify. for the bout that we did if we could do. it again to do great in these things you know the board to get
a story we. are only a team but i'm forced to game to the world to break to the game by game day by day this is the important russia were impressive at times on friday against northern irish so it wasn't really reflected in the score line alexander kids are called had a number of good opportunities but once again failed to find the back of a name it's and he's now gone five games without scoring for his country islands or go it will once again be key for the russians if he performs of a best of his ability but capello's side will have a good chance of coming away with a win however the captain eager the nice of say is the most important thing is just about getting a positive result and not the team's performance. because it was that earlier the beginning with israel will be a very difficult game for us going back to the game with northern ireland the most . one thing for us was getting all three points especially as this was our first group game and i'm glad we managed to do this of course the quality of football we
play is important but for me at present the most important thing is that we get the result we need and for the team as well if we win two nil against israel i'll be very happy russia will have less from positive memories about their last trip to tel aviv almost five years ago they lost a vital euro two thousand and eight qualifier thanks to a last minute goal which almost ended their hopes of qualifying factotum and that's how israel's captain used to be no human says russia will provide his side with a very difficult test i can only say that even then in russia they were great the and even now they have a lot of quality of this and i think it could be. a game same as it was before i think they're different this beloved game it was important for russia not for us and now at the beginning before that for both sides i think it would be. much more pressure for both sides then hopefully it will do the same result in the game even though the game will be played in the evening the temperature will still be in the
mid twenty's and russia's players said it will be difficult to adapt humid conditions however they will be doing their very best to try and make it two wins out of two in their campaign to qualify for the two thousand and fourteen world cup in brazil russia and i'm just one of five years ago one difficult opponents for israel can be on the shore to face a similar test on tuesday this is one of the games for head coach fabio capello will have been targeting as once when game of russia want to qualify automatically for the two thousand and fourteen world cup in brazil. tel aviv israel. well that kick off in tel aviv is one of the first of twenty four qualifiers taking place across europe this tuesday evening defending world and european champions spain begin that qualifying campaign with a trip to georgia in group why the caucasian team around eighty six in the world but the number one slide away every one upset. so tell us complete someone has done it it's clear that nothing is guaranteed even be the world of european champions does not guarantee anything these are difficult trips we've been analyzing the
georgian team they have high quality players and will make it very difficult for us this is a world cup qualifying game and nothing will be easy for them. and staying in group by france are looking to avenge their stinking one l. defeat from two years ago as labor again hopes ballerinas at the start of france where they were stunned during their new read twenty twelve point five m. campaign however the men are now top of the group after abu dhabi's for the only goal in their one zero victory in finland on friday and the team is prepared for a defensive game for the visitors. and england have also been training ahead of tuesday's match against ukraine at wembley the three lions are without veteran defender john terry who has an ankle injury the chelsea man picked up are not doing their five nil drubbing of moldova in their opening qualifier. theo walcott is also ruled out due to a virus adding to england's long injury list which also includes ashley cole and wayne rooney persuading manager while hodgson to call up three youngsters such as
seventeen year old liverpool win go write him sterling has made just five first team appearances for the reds. are the limits when we lost john terry and i should recall but you know the theo walcott's had to go home and just to be monitored although we think he's going to be ok it was a good opportunity i thought to invite some younger players to come in and be a part of the atmosphere i still think we have enough players to deal with the game we have more than the eleven certainly that we need. and following his twitter outburst islands james mclean stays on the bench for his side's friendly with them on in london this tuesday night maclean roach that he's exclusion from the team during friday's late to one opening qualifying winning kazakstan was a joke and also used an expletive once ireland coach giovanni trapattoni says he has no problem with the sunderland star who since apologized. well meanwhile here in russia moscow's sorry harry must go russia's darling prince of met president
that he may have putin after arriving home following their most successful ever games in london the grand kremlin palace provided the backdrop for the reception as mr putin handed out state awards to the athletes who brought home president in total of thirty six gold medals this hole was twice as big as that's going to previous games in beijing and secured second place in the overall standings behind china the upper trend bodes well for russia where expectations are high to also deliver top honors at their home win two games in sochi in two years time and gold winning football captain but they can hope for more government backing in the future. i told to see if by that i was personally i'd like to congratulate everyone here in our team successful performance in england and to say thank you very much to mr putin the russian government and the sports ministry for all this support and it's not only about this award ceremony but far more important is the fact that paralympic sport has been developing in this country your training grounds have
been built media coverage has been attraction more young athletes and some of them did great in london all of this made it possible for us to finish second at the games. but now finally around one million people lined the streets of london on monday to cheer on great britain's olympic and paralympic heroes the twenty twelve games attracted record crowds and hearing figures and british prime minister david cameron find everyone involved especially the. way to inspire a generation and that is exactly what you are doing if other people's children are anything like they are dreaming of being bradley wiggins or jess ennis or david or jonnie peacock they're begging their parents to set up many olympics that thinking about sport and disability in ways they never did before. this whole sport.
