tv   NEWSHOUR  Al Jazeera  June 28, 2018 9:00pm-10:00pm +03

9:00 pm
very interested in that global perspective that al jazeera provides. zero. this is the news hour live from london coming up in the next sixty minutes of om. bitterly divided on how to deal with migration into europe e.u. leaders meet for a summit in america says could make or break the union. a parliamentary report in the u.k. says spy agencies tolerated the inexcusable mistreatment of u.s. held prisoners. more revelations emerge about donald trump's campaign team and how they were eventually sharing information with foreign countries before he became
9:01 pm
president. and i'm planning how much with the latest from the world cup where colombia and japan that progress to the knockout stages of the competition we'll go live to moscow for all the details later in the program. as a meeting in brussels for a summit dominated by discussions on how to deal with illegal migration the problem has turned out to be so divisive it's even overshadowing breck's it the german chancellor angela merkel has gone as far as saying it could split the union apart the number of undocumented migrants reaching european shores has actually dropped since its peak in twenty fifteen and the issue is no longer viewed as a crisis the e.u. says it stemmed the flow of migrants by ninety six percent but better rouse have broken out in the last few months because some member states are simply refusing to let in rescue boats new right wing governments are demanding tighter border
9:02 pm
controls austria-hungary it to the east of here the czech republic and poland all want to stricter approach so leaders are trying to work out a solution in the form of so-called disembarkation platforms basically areas outside europe probably in north africa where migrants will be held from brussels largely reports. the european union is in trouble and they although it's the italians are now siding with the hungarian austrians in the front against migration the greeks are trying to keep up a spirit of unity with the spanish and the french and the country trying to keep it all from falling apart is germany that chancellor had already spelt out the danger to the entire block in a speech before she arrived but the level of europe faces many challenges but migration could become the make or break one for the e.u. either we manage it so others in africa believe that we're guided by valleys and believe in multilateralism not unilateralism or nobody will believe any longer in
9:03 pm
the system of values that is may destroy. given that there's no possible way anymore that the bloc can find a united position on sharing refugees the now having to resort to arrangements between individual countries prepared to help so for example greece which has already failed to find accommodation for many who fled from turkey says it will take back more from germany to ease the political pressure on merkel from inside her own coalition but what they're really struggling with is finding external countries which are prepared to act as holding since as albania was suggested but it is resistance so are african countries and as usual the question of helping troubled nations so that people don't have to become migrants was barely mentions it's worth remembering that the founding principle of the entire european project was and remains ever closer union and yet migration threatens to break that now because many countries either don't have the money or lack the political will to
9:04 pm
help anymore there is now a battle on for the heart and soul of the european union. this isn't a refugee crisis it's really a crisis about the rule of law and humanitarian standards in the part of the world which claims to be the most moral does it do its people want to be that anymore these are big questions with no satisfactory solutions. get more now from lawrence in brussels several hours any chances of resolving this in any kind of satisfactory way and that yes. well a number of those countries you mentioned your introduction which are more and more hostile through migration led by austria this so-called coalition of the willing they're giving briefings in the next hour or so so it should become a bit clearer if they've made any headway whatsoever one potential bilateral partnership to look at which i mentioned briefly in that report is now between
9:05 pm
greece and germany because the greeks who frankly. the ford soon look after refugees properly as it is have already said to the triangle americal will take more back under the dublin regulation if it takes some of the political pressure off angela merkel at home in the shortest term she's the one that's got the most to lose on this because the junior partner in her coalition obviously has given her until the end of friday to come up with some sort of solution or they say they'll start selling away refugees and migrants at the border which would break the insider idea of the shang in zone and so these splits are very pronounced between the sides of the european union which say look we're supposed to obey humanitarian law it's our role as the european union and all those other countries which increasingly are claiming that there's an invasion on the way because if there isn't that invasion underway as you were pointing out earlier on that the numbers are really very small now it's the political effects of migration and the
9:06 pm
validation is given to right wing populist policies that is now the issue here some of that of course is made up to hungary which says invade on the way you can drive right across the country not see a single refugee but they managed to persuade their own people that there is a civilizational risk of migration and that's the idea probably caught fire in a number of different countries now and that's what that that they're fighting enormously difficult to balance and and is it potentially something that would unravel the whole of the e.u. this as an american has suggested. well i mean clearly it's not going to fall apart overnight and the there are very senior politicians here who are saying look whatever we achieve on thursday so far this week however bad it is we just need to keep the talks going you know and so and so they're trying to if you like play a bit of a longer game at the moment and specifically the i think the most they're going to ever achieve at the moment is by strengthening the borders even more as they say
9:07 pm
and trying to do more deals with either countries outside the european you like albania or. north african countries to stop people coming in but it's you know it isn't a it's not about migration it's about the perception of the effects of migration and that's what's the most troubling thing for more liberal countries to to to to persuade people of because countries like italy like hungary say look our people don't want they say the more you know and you've got to answer to them in the end in whatever people are going to limit will say about it being a moral obligation it just doesn't wash anymore currently thank you very much. it is hard line stance on rescue ships as we've been hearing that has sent a clear message to europe that it will no longer bear the brunt of immigration and italians are welcoming interior minister meto sell beanies anti immigrant rhetoric charlie engineer is in sicily to find out how refugees feel about this new more hostile environment. a bus from could turn your unloading into cardamon near one of
9:08 pm
europe's largest refugee camps here there is fresh refugees applying for asylum they've heard that italy's new interior minister is hostile to migrants and they're right just. so what. you just so even move. it into the sea ernest came from ghana when he was fifteen he lost his mother in libya and made his way to italy alone now a husband and father the camp has been his home for four years lawyers say these people are the lucky ones italy's new policy of turning boats away will make new arrivals almost impossible. we're going back to dean when there was no distinction between genuine refugees and economic migrants the government is now talking about preventing people from even requesting asylum or denying access based on their
9:09 pm
country of origin and this is a violation of international law italy has shut its ports to charity boats carrying rescued migrants they believe if these boats disappear migrants might be tempted to cross the mediterranean but charity boats account for forty percent of the search and rescue operations here in testing this idea thousands could die. italy's new hardline policy is driven by my tales told beany a rock star of the italian right seen here in libya pushing for asylum identification centers to be set up in north africa not europe his slogan stop the invasion local councillor and tell vini supporter fabulous took me to parts of catan year he says are over run by migrants. that's it. if you need. me is now the biggest refugee camp in europe many times we have taken the issue to europe but it's taken so vignette to put
9:10 pm
a stop to it our coasts are being invaded and the impact of illegal immigration is particularly evident in neighborhoods like this one back at the camp a message from one refugee that this anti migrant rhetoric is dangerous. you can have a group of migrants together some of us fled persecution others have come just to earn money and then return to africa we don't have a choice we came here because we were being persecuted we came to europe because the rule of law is respected in africa it isn't that with these new policies risks accusations that it is also forgetting the rule of law and its moral obligations to those in need charlie and to al jazeera. which in the news hour live from london much more to come on the program including a massive campaign against loitering in the philippines thousands are being jailed for it including children as young as five. fifteen people die in the latest fire to consume the kenyan capital's knowledge of open air market. and sport we'll hear
9:11 pm
from the german team as they return home on their shock exit the world cup. and the u.k. tolerated what's being described as inexcusable treatment of detainees by the us following the nine eleven attacks in two thousand and one according to a new parliamentary committee report members of parliament said it was beyond doubt that british intelligence agencies knew at an early stage that the u.s. was mistreating detainees and that more could have been done to try to influence u.s. behavior the committee found that in two hundred thirty two cases u.k. personnel continued to supply intelligence to allies after they knew or suspected mistreatment. and in ninety eight cases they received intelligence obtained from detainees who they knew or should have suspected had been mistreated corporon reports. brutal methods of western intelligence agencies after nine eleven included
9:12 pm
waterboarding starvation sleep deprivation stress positions verbal threats and physical assaults on the u.k.'s intelligence and security committee set out to uncover the extent of british involvement after fifty hours of testimony and forty thousand documents the conclusion was clear no view the united kingdom tolerated actions and took others that we regard as inexcusable. the committee declared itself astonished that despite rendition being illegal in britain there is still no clear policy on the u.k.'s involvement in the practice by other countries via the u.k. and while there was no smoking gun showing british agents had physically abused detainees there were hundreds of cases where agents had been involved in interrogations despite knowing or suspecting mistreatment. but crucially the committee was prevented from talking to the agents involved we want to talk to the people who
9:13 pm
were in those posts back at that time and in addition to that we want to talk to people who were in the field at that time because without it you call fill in potential gaps campaigners say it's time for a judge led independent inquiry which has greater powers to demand disclosure and compel witnesses to attend this is something the government promised back in twenty ten it has stalled but the government has until now always maintained that this will be the position once the i se has finished its inquiry and so we now look to theresa may to establish that inquiry without delay the response from the intelligence agencies has come from an interview with an unnamed agent here at m i six in which they said that the agencies were unprepared for the upsurge in counterterrorism work which followed nine eleven but they hadn't had specific training in conducting detainee interviews but the tough important lessons had been learned and they did things very differently now. the abuses at abu ghraib bag
9:14 pm
graham kuantan him obey him and numerous so-called black sites around the world led to a global scandal and now even the united states prohibits its agents from using cruel or degrading interrogation methods but rendition and detentions are still going on and the oversight of them remains murky paul brennan al-jazeera london. and meg is a former guantanamo bay detainee joins us live from birmingham here in the u.k. thanks for being with us so what's your initial reaction to the these reports. of course they're not telling us telling me anything that i i don't know i've been working on cases after my return from guantanamo with my organization cage for the past twelve years highlighting documenting those people who abuse those people who were tortured and rendition and so i know so many people that this happened to and so recurrent and concurrent for it to have been concocted of course in the in the beginning people like jack straw the united states government said that we're all lying we've all read the al qaeda manual to accuse to say that we we are we were
9:15 pm
subjects of torture this is the way we tackle our detention the truth now has come out but what we need to see released prosecutions essentially of those people who were involved in the torture and those people who knew ordered or were complicit in it whether it's all worth it goes all the way to the top and i think anything less than that will essentially mean the torture which is a war crime goes unpunished those who were involved on the kind of being involved directly in the report does say that there was no evidence of officers directly carrying out physical mistreatment of detainees and so. i think that you know if you look at any crime at all when somebody commits a serious crime they don't just look at the person that carried out the crime they looked at those who facilitated those who financed it those who benefit from it those who remained silent and gave it tacit approval those who were complicit in it so i think that that is no there's no way to argue that just in your personal case
9:16 pm
were you ever aware of any presence of in british intelligence agents involved in what happened to you of course i identified them i'm not i'm not going to identify them to the british minister metropolitan police who did a criminal investigation a few years ago and the same individual agent who'd sat in my house in one thousand nine hundred eight who'd come to see me about a particular case was the same one who turned up in pakistan in kandahar graham and guantanamo when i was kneeling on my knees with my hands shackled behind my back to my legs who placed of my head on a gun pointed towards it so these agents were physically present and regularly present in fact there was they were there so often i think that at some point they become a part of the furniture in bug rahman kuantan of the american soldiers all knew who they were and they deferred to them in terms of giving them the fullest. ability to access i mean i suppose in this in this instance i mean is it different to these stories because intelligence agencies never comment on these kind of stories and don't ever put up
9:17 pm
a kind of defense so i mean we have your word for it on this but. in general the intelligence agents agencies will probably argue that the situation was very difficult at the time and they were having to follow up information that could have saved lives well i think that's just not true at all in fact if anything is proved now it's that the torture of individuals led to the false allegations that saddam hussein was working on with the with al-qaeda on weapons of mass destruction the truth is this that the report now has come out it has corroborated what we've said there's no point in suggesting though that there's another side to the story that what they need to hear. here is the arguments as to how culpable these individuals were but the fact is that this report now says clearly without any compunction and without any doubt that the torture did take place and that they were involved in fact it gives the the details of how many cases and and exactly what happened and
9:18 pm
where it was happening just briefly do you think do you think that the end of an independent crime will be granted as it would you think the government is going to stop there just to allow the we're intelligence agencies to essentially what would say mercedes have to continue doing their job without being investigated and i support the concept of an independent judgment inquiry the problem is that the the i.c. report itself is the result of a failed government a judge led inquiry that happened was called a gibson inquiry the that ended in talk two thousand and twelve essentially and that was again because nobody recently said nobody even in that inquiry would get to see or to know what it is that these individuals from the m i five and my six were actually doing though to get to cross-examine them not not their own our lawyers nor anybody else so the transparency of this was always in question but this is happening despite the fact that many people didn't engage with this inquiry and that the. despite all of that they've come to the conclusion that these that this torture and this rendition kidnap did take place with full british complicity was in fact thank you very much indeed for your time thank you. for your staff
9:19 pm
attorney general has been accused of holding documents related to the f.b.i.'s investigation into donald trump's presidential campaign mr rosenstein why are you keeping information from congress. and i'm not keeping any information from congress that it's a pretty few minutes mr rosenstein think the house of representatives going to say something different i don't agree with you congressman i don't believe that's what they're going to say and if they do they'll might disagree but i think i mean i think in a few minutes. it's being reported that close confidantes donald trump had closer ties to the united arab emirates than previously thought when they were on the campaign trail and the middle east i says it has e-mails that show trump confidence we're willing to exchange inside information with the emirates he ambassador to washington with more on this now from david hestenes editor in chief of the middle east i think for coming to the studio so what what new information have you managed to glean well it's we're publishing
9:20 pm
a series of emails. and there are three main. revelations in it one is that this relationship started much earlier than we previously thought previously had been reported that. trump trump tower meeting in december two thousand and sixteen between mohamed bin sides of the crown prince of abu dhabi. and and his close circle including steve bannon and giant question are these e-mails reveal that actually very important meetings were happening in may two thousand and sixteen much earlier than we thought the second thing is that once trump of been elected and he was president elect that his confident his closest one who is tom barrett who is a billionaire fundraiser for the republican party and the man who chose his campaign manager paul metaphor. was swapping information with or offered to
9:21 pm
swap information with fiber so this is. the most sensitive information i who trump was thinking about two heads apartment of defense the cia and state and who's doing this for the foreign ambassadors so where does this information go now when it all these e-mails going to go to them no less to gain what's the kind of next step in terms of what you do with this well the more investigation will be interested in these revelations simply because he's looking for not just contact but for flows of money because what he's basically investigating is whether any foreign policy started with russia but he's now continuing with the united arab emirates and saudi arabia whether any foreign government actively contributed financially to trump's election campaign and that would be illegal under u.s. law now there's nothing in these e-mails to show that any money passed hands all
9:22 pm
they show is contacts and and the attitude that was expressed. through these contacts is one of the things that comes out really quite strongly is that tom barack. is saying he wants to advance our regionals in interests when he talks about our region he's not talking about. american. region he's talking about the a morality and the gulf region so i mean so far trump has brushed off all the whole militarization is essentially with witch hunt. it is any of that kind of information and to make any difference to him and his people support him or is it all water off the duck's back i mean we haven't so far seen any of this getting any traction to damages trump in any way while it's it's had a lot of traction in the media there's been another story or close to this in the new york times it gets a lot of traction there. whether it gets traction but it's not in the minority
9:23 pm
so what's the key missing element i mean in terms of proving wrongdoing is it to do with the money trail or it would be to do with actual the money trail and you may not find anything because the people we're talking about a very. good at disguising what they do in disguising their contacts. but what it shows is that there is a concerted efforts. very very early on. to imprint. people and ideas on the blank sheet of trump's mind and the blank sheets of gerald cushions mind and the same people are now forging ahead with their agenda be it against qatar it against al-jazeera or be it with the deal of the century the same people are actually involved because they think they're actually running the middle east david hearst thank you very much indeed for you to just push it thank you.
9:24 pm
at least fifteen people have died in a fire in kenya's largest open air market in the capital nairobi up to seventy others have been taken to hospital with serious burns and suffocation including many children the fire broke out early on thursday morning at the common market which is famous for selling secondhand clothes catherine soy has the latest from nairobi. this is watch remains of a section of one of nairobi's largest markets more than two hundred traders shared this space mostly selling t. and clothes the fire started early morning when the market was close to people living nearby was asleep many including children were overcome by smoke and fumes and suffocated others were the hospital someone who was at home when he had the market is on fire he had a business here and lost most of his stock. so i was called at around two am and told there's a fire i rushed here i still have my pajamas on when i got here all my timber was

9:26 pm

9:35 pm
critics say this is another crackdown directed against the poor the terror to so-called war on drugs continues with more than twenty two thousand people killed since it took office two years ago we visited one of the detention facilities in the capital manila the stench of human sweat and heat is overwhelming this cell only has a capacity of six but it currently houses at least eighty inmates it is so packed that there are three hour shifts so that others can sleep while the rest stand and the warden says this is an improvement. another sell for women when asked almost all of them say they have not seen a lawyer this fight being jailed for weeks rights groups say the situation is similar across the country and deter to policy this isn't there more than ten thousand filipinos have already been arrested over the last two weeks but despite
9:36 pm
tremendous criticism president through the good data says there will be no letup in his anti loitering campaign and is even ordered the rounding up of minors hundred several ready been brought to police stations and this attachment alone at least fifty children are made to sign up as offenders every night some as young as spider years old. there are cases of abuse in these are perpetrated by authorities who are supposedly duty bound to protect the children the very. force is like. or anything in order to gain in public places such as industries so what we want to deliver. more spear obscene but that is not a sentiment shared by many here rights groups see the could she is steadily becoming a police state and their dead day and the justice of courts have now been replaced
9:37 pm
by the justice of god this. dog at al-jazeera manila. virgin atlantic has announced it will stop flights between london and dubai after twelve years of operating the route the airline will pull out of the u.a.e. at the end of march twenty nine teen saying it's no longer economically viable it's the third airline to cancel its london dubai route in recent months. pulled out in may while qantas and its flights in march when this aviation analyst joins me in the studio so they're saying it's not economically viable warner longer why is that or they're referring to dubai and they're saying that the route itself for virgin atlantic anyway is an economically viable being that they do have heavy competition but in terms of the reasoning they have cited external factors now they haven't elaborated so we can only presume that it's something either politically either here in the u.k. perhaps with bricks it or the destination in dubai. i mean is it interesting that
9:38 pm
several other airlines have been doing the same or is it kind of an end of an era for dubai as well this is a significant capacity drop in london heathrow to dubai flights as you said three airlines virgin atlantic and other third to announce that drop and so passengers they can expect the fares to rise but also it reflects kind of the ever changing aviation industry where dubai would significantly always hold kind of a prestigious route a prime route where there would have lots of premium passengers and now it seems that they can't sustain it even for the likes of a legacy british carrier like virgin atlantic so it's changing times for sure and what about the kind of who stands to benefit for. isn't it all there any other airlines who is essentially be kind of upping up customers and putting the prices up well of course and passengers can expect the fares to rise suddenly from london heathrow is this now leaves just one non emraan t. carrier flying between heathrow and dubai british airways of the night is dominated by emirates so what where are the become a new departure was seen as one of those airlines that kind of you know one of those airports was expanding expanding what about now what's the big one to watch
9:39 pm
in terms of international aviation the future of aviation will be asia and this is reflected in quantities decision to leave dubai they accepted by flights and they said that they're opting for singapore instead and they said it's a more preferred passenger option or to me the worry is that the gulf days are over in terms of passengers who want to actually visit to buy and they're replacing those stops and the airlines are responding to that demand and it's matures thank you very much indeed for coming in thank you. and although trump is in milwaukee wisconsin where he's visiting a new foxconn factory complex the u.s. president has the project with the taiwanese at. the creation of fifteen thousand jobs john hendren is the president. john it feels a bit like trump is claiming this project is a success of his. absolutely he says
9:40 pm
when the head of this company came to him and talked to him about making a major investment here in the united states he immediately thought of wisconsin it brings thirteen thousand new jobs here to this state it's about a ten billion dollars investment by a company that makes l.c.d. screens like those ones behind the president right there they also happen to make they assemble the i phone if you look back at it they say assembled in china so that's what they're probably best known for the president is absolutely taking credit for it and he's doing it in a key state it was wisconsin that put the president over the two hundred seventy electoral votes that he needed to become president he was the first republican to win the state of wisconsin since one thousand nine hundred four in reagan's second election so it's very important to him with midterm elections coming up in november that he retain this state for his party to fight to keep control of congress and he's going to need wisconsin in that race so it's important that he's here making
9:41 pm
