negotiations to open up a dialogue about its conduct and to seek reparations the dutch government says this is a complex legal process a possible next step is to present the case to an international court but russia has spent four years presenting counter narratives and that pattern continues at this in petersburg international economic forum the mayor putin was asked if russia held any culpability are you saying this was not a russian missile this was not a russian army missing you're going to know of course not and he questions the impartiality of the joint investigation team music of yes there are several versions including the one suggesting it was a ukrainian army missile or a plane or so on i repeat that there is nothing which would make us trust the final conclusions and we will not be without awful involvement in the investigation.
belling cats and open source investigation team has been looking into flight m h seventeen for years and many of their findings have been subsequently backed up by the j.i.t. in the dutch city of the hague on friday belling katz identified a russian military intelligence officer ivana cough as a key suspect the seconds russian military figure they've implicated in the incidents this person is was the highest military ranking officer at the time in the so-called lugansk people's republic. he represented the military intelligence of russia at the time and he was in direct command and control of the mercenary slash volunteer operations military units and militants in eastern ukraine in the lugansk mist of eastern ukraine so we believe we were there to fight somebody who was who was very high in the chain of command and who ultimately if
his link is to the actual downing of seventeen is displayed and proven for the by the joint destitution team will be one of the critical suspects but none of the mounting international accusations are likely to shift russia's position much in the near future of the country's political culture sees contrition or acknowledgment of guilt as a sign of weakness and bloody may putin has too much invested in his global strongman image to back down now retellings al-jazeera said petersburg. the u.s. house of representatives has approved a measure requiring the pentagon to investigate whether america has broken the law by torturing detainees in yemen hundreds of men of reportedly gone missing in the south of the country after they were allegedly swept up during a search for al qaeda fighters american officials say that u.s. forces have been involved in interrogations of detainees in yemen but they denied any participation in or knowledge of human rights abuses. hundreds of people in the

and bustin to protest again at the border now we know that we've been told one of the tactics following. recent protests has been slightly different the tactic has been not to go right up to the little try and breach it but to still protest is still trying to keep the israeli forces on their toes that's the tactic we've been told they're trying to deploy here the protest organizers and that certainly seems was what has happened here because really it was there was nobody here about an hour ago and then they all came they protested there's been tear gas and there have been a number of people injured by live fire on by tear gas that the israelis have been throwing over at least twenty people injured and they've been taken away to hospital for treatment but this as i say seems to be this new approach keeping the israeli military on its toes it was quiet all day and then suddenly this quick

privacy settings the facebook bridge and all its occur scandal may seem a world away from the g.d.p. our compliance requirements of a small sports club such as this but the fact is that even seemingly innocuous data when put together really starts to matter. lobby groups and campaign this have broadly welcomed g.d.p. are as a reset button a wake up call they say for e.u. citizens to engage with some fundamental questions do i really want to continue giving this company my data and when need to do that is that it is unnecessary for must for me and to make a conscious attempt or a conscious decision what data they share a recent survey of german companies revealed that just twenty five percent of them expected to be able to meet the g.d.p. our deadline e.u. data regulators are expected to be sympathetic for now but after extra time comes penalties paul brennan al-jazeera berlin indonesia is introducing tough new
