surely we can risk some discomfort and easiness for. the headlines this hour given the sign charged in the u.s. conspiracy to hack government computers washington is now again raising the issue of alleged links to russia also to come over seven thousand people reportedly killed in libya in a week is the international community remains split over how to deal with the escalating conflict in the country and the german justice minister is rounded on after giving an interview to a party she which mentions close ties between berlin and moscow. and we maintain close ties with russia russia was and always will be our partner.
clothes i welcome you watching international now after his dramatic arrest we can leaks front man today in the sand she's facing a charge of conspiracy to hack a u.s. government computer but it appears washington has another axe to grind to at least judging by vice president mike pence his words on friday. when he was the cia cia director said we keep leaks in state house intelligence service often abetted by state actors like russia which strongly agree with the justice department is now seeking extradition but it's not the first time russia has been mentioned in connection with this sanjay although currently he's not been charged with anything russia related. takes a look at whether alleged collusion may nevertheless become part of the case against him. it did say it years ago a son that the united states wanted him that's why he was in the ecuadorian embassy
and he was right america is seeking extradition and if you watch enough t.v. you surely know why his russian connections can we address the question at hand and that is whether or not you can say definitively that russia had no part in this. it was trying to sabotage the twenty six thousand election and have these facts in front of them saw assad as an agent agent or at least a provocateur or a collaborator with the russian government tonight there is growing evidence that russia is using wiki leaks as a delivery vehicle for hacked e-mails and other information it was everywhere on every pundit slips for years assad's we could leaks putin russia meddling echoed and echoed by everyone important enough to be on camera like us need is it's time to call out wiki leaks for what it really is a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like russia
they've acted in concert with the russians to interfere on our elections to help you pack into what took kept information from the russians at least in a way to disrupt our campaigns and twenty sixteen i don't think that's that's not right to legal and i hope mr as much as possible gestures should come to cuba and so forth is for all. russians meddling in what you do by their word he's a covert taiji be asset of a secret mission to topple the united states that is if you watch enough t.v. if you don't if you actually read the indictment against in the charges no mention of russia not a mention of elections of meddling e-mails or grand plots to topple the united states his crime allegedly was that he worked with chelsea. manning to obtain classified documents that showed us human rights abuses in iraq and afghanistan the us government house to. state all the charges.
and charge mr scotch with. extraditions. you feel to you mr sargent's us that lands on us on a power point experiment or bring their charges just consider this if the us had any of it anything tying as signs to russia or meddling or conspiracy do you think they would have shown it to mentioned it this is it this is the unique charge he faces and because of how extradition works they can't add any more charges if they get him. the extradition work. needs to go at that stage but except church aside for example. the extradition court u.k. not extradite somebody to wes the charges that are probably going to. not
exist there's no charge. so the extradition court makes very clear we're only going to extradite on those charges are sent to us and. we just i guess directs your sosh. states with the shirts on now saying balance sheets are. going by what lawyers and experts are saying the u.s. doesn't have much of a case and that ass and is found guilty it sets a nasty precedent where journalists can be jailed for posting classified material no matter how vital like the manning files.
this remarkable as it may be the u.s. is now saying that exposing u.s. human rights abuses wanted murder committed by the u.s. military exposing that is more serious than the abuses and murder themselves chilled formally bradley manning was freed by a bomb but judging by the toxicity on t.v. in washington. shouldn't be too hopeful the. you never know trump is trump wiki leaks i love wiki leaks. well as we saw on thursday police forcibly removed from the ecuadorian embassy in london they came off the strip him
of his ecuadorian citizenship i'm revoked his asylum which was granted almost seven years ago ecuador says this is violated the terms of his asylum in my way. or the country's former foreign minister said ricardo patino claims the current government to struck a deal. what is clear here is that moreno who is currently the president of ecuador has reached an agreement with the u.s. big greek to loans from the international monetary fund and an exchange agreed to things hand over julian assange and the process of the latin american interation. moreno has betrayed his homeland you loud british police to enter our embassy the embassy which we've been defending since two thousand and twelve it's clear that the death penalty still exists in the us i repeat it's public information they commit barbaric acts of torture against those they consider an enemy clearly julian
assange is an enemy to them that's exactly why we gave him political asylum seeker . a lot he's going underground to speak to the songes long time legal adviser and he explained why he believes the breach of bio was not the real reason behind the arrest you can watch the full interview like this today. the home secretary said to joe ahead of the release of further or further arrest of your ears and said he's right be facing justice in the u.k. where he's not facing justice in the u.k. other than for breach of bail which is a very minor offense usually dealt with by a guy or a few weeks in prison these politicians so that maybe he will stir up the judges to give him a couple of months but the justice that he's facing in is justice or in justice in america which wants him and has charges really
for up to forty five years imprisonment the trump argument is this that the first amendment which protects journalists for him asli only a prize to american journalists and doesn't apply to any foreign journalist even those working for american papers in fact driven goodale who was the hero of the pentagon papers case he was the lawyer for the new york times he came out of retirement the other day and he said we're sondra case however much you dislike. his case is the most important for media freedom since the pentagon papers case where one of the biggest revelations of the leaks published by assigns concern alleged u.s. war crimes in afghanistan the international criminal court has been looking into similar accusations for a while now but has just decided not to open an investigation into the matter the
i.c.c. claims that doing so now would be counterproductive. the judges decided that investigation into the situation in afghanistan at this stage would not serve the interests of justice the i.c.c. noted the lack of cooperation that the prosecutor has received which is likely to go scared should an investigation be authorized hampering the chances of successful investigation and prosecution well the u.s. president donald trump is hope the decision is quote a major international victory for the rule of law washington recently revoked an entry visa for the prosecutor responsible for the probe citing the need to protect the country's sovereignty the us has refused to sign up to the i.c.c. with officials lashing out at the court we will not cooperate with the i.c.c. we will provide no assistance to the i.c.c. and we certainly will match or in the i.c.c. as far as america is concerned the i.c.c.
has no jurisdiction no legitimacy and no authority we will ban its judges and prosecutors from entering the united states the i.c.c. plains near universal jurisdiction over the citizens of every country the united states will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution by this illegitimate. the i.c.c. opened an initial investigation into the issue in two thousand and six this looked at allegations that over ten thousand civilians were killed in the trust that it was as well as claims of torture and rape twenty seventeen the i.c.c. prosecutor asked judges to take things further saying there were reasonable grounds to suspect the u.s. military was implicated human rights watch says the court's decision to reject a proper investigation sets a bad precedent. the i.c.c.
judge's rejection of an afghanistan investigation is a devastating blow for victims who have suffered grievous crimes without red dress the judge's logic effectively allows member countries to opt out of copulating with the court and to war activists if you could check and says that the i.c.c. has no power against us i don't think that an entity like an i.c.c. would be able to bring those charges to the front and i think it will look back i mean you take on yugoslavia you take on small countries in africa maybe countries in latin america or maybe countries in south asia but i've taken on the united states i mean i i mean you i guess the president too that would be the case with the song right now this is this is not only up down it's down but we have to look at did they do they do anything about iraq you know that was illegal occupation legal invasion just like a pianist in this case is not the first case that points that out i think there are
a few cases that point going back to even the crimes in yugoslavia that the nato committed i think there's quite a few cases and there's quite a few precedents to show that i.c.c. is actually not capable of. bringing the real actors so the western countries the hedge amman's to the table and actually charging them with crimes. in other news seventy five people have been killed and over three hundred twenty wounded in libya in the last ten days that's according to the world health organization the country's ongoing civil war has been escalating after general wholly for hafta his control in libya ordered his army to march on the capital the u.n. is calling on all parties to the conflict to end hostilities. health partners have verified seventeen civilian casualties so far with seven fatalities including three medical staff at least five ambulances have been hit since the onset of the
conflict we continue to call for a humanitarian pause to allow people to safely evacuate and emergency services to get through and for all parties to abide by their obligations under international humanitarian law meanwhile thousands of libyans have been gathering in tripoli to protest against renewed fighting in the region libya has been in turmoil since the ash think of moammar gadhafi back in twenty levon since then the country has seen the setting up of two rival governments one backed by the un in tripoli. to provoke . back now it has the civil war in libya began in her latest edition of in case you missed it. cia stooges competing colonialists a powerless us billions of barrels of the black stuff in case you missed it the looming civil war in libya has this will. help us in the early i thought. freedom and prosperity in libya back in twenty eleven creating
a glorious last civil. like this and slave trade turns out i was wrong. not the business and i'm of the revolution to get rid of this guy and the more you know this one shares up i just look at them like a little despotic because their. general. and his self-proclaimed libyan national army. apparently fall for colonel moammar gadhafi and then turned against him before going into exile in the u.s. for twenty years in langley virginia where the cia is based. how is that significant seriously i am trying to record something here. where was i cost has launched a military offensive and pledged to take control of the whole country is offered there reassuring promise that security comes after politics second. how to stop it
was to defeat the government of national accord which is really a selfless or national or in accord with anything but it's got one thing on its side the recognition of the us the service that seems easy enough international condemnation of nato for half dollar bill says everything gets better it works every time the plan has everyone's best the oil interests up top. so while the u.n. officially recognizes the tripoli government the french egypt and the saudis have been funding and backing general ham who also got a personalized guided tour of a russian aircraft carrier by twenty seventeen italy is backing the other side out of the u.s. just pulled out of its soldiers from libya. quite a geopolitical. currently all the sides are doing the are losing may sound do when
they can't do anything calling. for a strange kind of dialogue my advice to anyone who lives in a corrupt sandy country with a serious amount of oil is to leave here just very back. so be used to manning that general after stops his military operation against the tripoli government. the military attack launched by the enemy on tripoli and the subsequent escalation in and around the capital are in danger of civilians including migrants and refugees and disrupting un led political process with the risk of serious consequences for libya and the wider region including the terrorist threat has been mentioned the block seems to be split over the issue france reportedly rejected an earlier in the statement calling on the leader of the libyan national army to pull back its troops paris's all assets in eastern libya and had
been pro providing military help to have to italy meanwhile as criticize france's stance. it would be very serious of france for economical commercial reasons had blocked an e.u. initiative to bring peace to libya and would support a party that is fighting as minister of the interior i would not stand by and watch something that the two thousand and eleven nato led military intervention in libya promoted by then french president nicolas sarkozy was triggered more by economic and commercial interests than what humanitarian concerns of the former deputy speaker of the belgian parliament led finished as think the split in the over libya is linked to geopolitical interests of its members about your political a position of france and italy in a lesson manager brown's was the one country don't start of the war on libya in the first place for the same reason that there were there were they do not supporting the guy that they think will protect their interests ironically enough dismount
those leading the libyan national army is a former gadhafi goalie or a tool down and gone disagreed with him and left the country for us in several years this man is just as a reliable as any other military dictator i mean it just shows that when it goes really comes down to democracy human rights and so on is just irrelevant. i still had a few that human justice minister was on the fire after giving an interview to r.t. deutsch will have a look at what she said exactly just off the press. t's holiday international memorial awards twenty nine see the now open for entries the media professionals are eligible whether you are
