firebrand of the liberal wing of the democratic party some analysts put her just to the left of hillary clinton and in her tenure of six years in congress which is a relatively short period she has made a national reputation for herself as a stout watchdog of big banking that is a very popular position among the left and you saw that highlighted in warren's announcement video along with the other liberal firebrands of equality minority rights but you saw also that her perhaps most unifying rallying cry for the democratic party is her attempt to segue from her success of championed reforms on wall street to tackling corruption there to washington d.c. and being the watchdog and tackling donald trump and his administration which she has not been shy to criticize and she has already received the wrath of donald trump how is she looking in this field of democrats heidi that we are expecting
2:01 am
to announce candidacy and how is the policy looking can they mount a real challenge to president. right this is still very early in the season of course and elizabeth warren she's garnering this attention because she is the first of many democrats who are expected to announce their intention to run in this in may in fact may be a calculation on warren's part to get ahead of the field of as many as thirty possible candidates contemplating that option and she does have quite the challenge ahead of her not only will she face a younger wave of possible candidates who are sure to popularity by the midterm elections but she also has others to the right of her on the democratic party who have more of a name recognition they being former vice president joe biden and also senator bernie sanders both of those men have previous experience running for president and
2:02 am
what warren or any democratic nominee must do is convince the democratic party that they deserve to be the new face of this party that has been so fractured since the departure of the of the obama administration that it's lacked a leader she has to do this at a time when in just a few days congress will swear in the most diverse and the youngest class of incoming freshman democrats to date and most importantly of all war and would have to convince her party that she can defeat donald trump which will be no easy task in november of two thousand and twenty and she's already fallen into several cars on that front by her that's considered to be errors by both her supporters and her critics trump has often attacked warren one of the things he does is calling her the slur of pocahontas to deride her claims of having native american ancestry and she was widely panned for her decision to take a d.n.a. test and released the results of the public her supporters and her detractors said
2:03 am
that only played into trump's hand and they are hoping her hope her supporters are hoping that she will play a better hand as the election season progresses thank you very much for the finale that is with the nation is live in washington d.c. thank you. well still ahead on the bulletin of war in yemen more on the shouting in the setting of the day that residents say is continuing despite a u.n. back trolls and breaking barriers well in senegal whether one of the basketball team has become an inspiration to teenage girls. how they were dry couple days seem to notice public cloud you do see me around eastwards is just give you a case no showers that are continue the cloud mass further west has got

2:18 am
african. sudanese. a living proof of our unity with our fellow crothers in that continent with the aim to continue to exist all efforts to establish b.s. and security within the region by positive participation sudan has always played a key role namely in the south sudan and we will continue. to exert efforts to establish peace in central africa central africa with donation and participation and cooperation with the african unity also what. so we have been listening there to sudanese president omar al bashir who is addressing the nation on the eve of independence day celebrations and following weeks of protests that have gripped the country of of rising food and fuel prices
2:19 am
and his role our correspondent to morgan has been listening and she is joining us from the captain cards speaking there head president bashir of the measures that will be taken he said in the budget to address the real problems that are plaguing sudan he spoke of maintaining subsidies raising salaries supporting social programs but will those that are out on the streets protesting take anything from that. well elizabeth when the protests started he also said that he came out and said that he was going to try to improve the economy he was going to try to introduce new economic measures to improve the situation improve and reduce the inflation rate which was seventy percent which still is seventy percent at the moment one of the highest in the world but the people protesting said they have heard these promises before that this is something he said before over and over again during his twenty one year rule over the country would they say that they wanted the moment is that they want him to resign and hand over the power to an interim government until elections are held and he also said that he is going to try to
2:20 am
stabilize the country and he wants to he can he condemn the violence that was happening as we know that the police have been using tear gas and live ammunition to to disperse protesters he condemned bad and he said that he was trying to basically he wanted to help to have a dialogue a peaceful dialogue with the protesters but the thing is the protesters are very there are various groups there that didn't have a certain political body that is backing them up opposition groups have lent their support to the demonstrators saying that they have a legitimate reason to be protesting but then it's very hard it's going to be very hard for president ahmed bashir to negotiate with people who do not have a certain leader these people have been coming out by hundreds in different parts of the country different cities where several are now under curfew rule under emergency rule sorry and it's very hard for him to fly in. so it's a source of people or certain leaders to try to negotiate with even if he wants to all right have a thank you very much for the f a now that is have a morgan listening in to president omar al bashir address in the capital khartoum
2:21 am
we will be following the rest of that address for you on al-jazeera we'll have that and the rest of the world news in the news hour which is coming up in just under thirty minutes i'm elizabeth pran and thank you very much for watching. new clues into the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi al jazeera has obtained video showing the saudi hit team carrying him by suspected of containing these remains into the saudi consuls residence but how significant is this and what will turkey do next this is inside story.
2:22 am
and welcome to the program i'm laura carlisle it was a murder that calls shock around the world just moments after jamal khashoggi walks into the saudi consulate in istanbul on the second of october he was pushed and murdered his body was never found. a video that shows members of the saudi hit team carrying bags those suspected to have his body inside will bring in our guests in just a moment but first this report from paul should judge him. it's been three months since the murder of jeep and his body still hasn't been found but this video could throw more light on the sequence of events after he was killed the pictures appear to show members of the saudi hit team carrying bags thought to contain his remains
2:23 am
into the saudi consul general residence you can't believe these things happen in embassies or consul generals things but but of course they are control of all that control will in that saudi property saudi land the local police can't really do very much about it and of course they wouldn't imagine for one minute the were actually listening to what was going on inside the saudi journalist entered the consulate hoping to pick up documents that would allow him to start a new life with his fiance he never came out alive saudi arabia blamed his death on rogue agents but turkey's president says it was a premeditated murder orchestrated by riad these pictures only add another layer of complexity to the investigation now we have direct evidence showing members of the killing team unloading body bags or black bags of some sort
2:24 am
so it leaves the impression. body ended up at the consular. residence and that's where the investigation should focus not what happened today a few weeks after hushovd disappearance a team of turkish investigators found traces of acid during a search of the saudi consuls residence the office of turkey's attorney general has told al jazeera that chemicals were used to dispose of casualties body and now a new book is revealing more details of the killing. diplomatic atrocity the dark secrets of the murder was written by three reporters from turkey's daily sub newspaper it names two previously and identified members of the saudi hit squad as well as their links to the royal family also audio recordings which allegedly prove that the crime was premeditated and information on his show g.'s reported refusal
2:25 am
to text message his son in riyadh and tell him not to worry if he didn't hear from him for a while as a fuller picture of the killing emerges the pressure continues to grow on saudi arabia last week the king reshuffled his cabinet hoping to deflect international criticism but the saudi side would hope that this recent cabinet reshuffle puts an end to this case relieve saudi arabia from pressure by the turks and the international community looking for some answers the new details are also likely to add to growing calls that saudi arabia names and indicts those behind jamal killing paul chatterjee on al-jazeera. well let's bring in our panel now and joining us from istanbul via skype shaman
2:26 am
politics of the daily newspaper in belgrade toby kaplan and sascha human rights lawyer and co-founder of thirty seven and justice chambers and also via skype from taunton in the u.k. is forma intelligence officer and national security analyst if i will welcome to all of you to the program let's start with these rather chilling picture says these black bags being carried into the residence of the consul general all days are these the biggest clue guess as to what happened to jamal khashoggi body. well these banks were also mentioned in the book as well that you mentioned the diplomatic extras does beck's show us that house of you was actually dismembered and was carried from the council building to the council general's house to building that site however we don't know where it went from that where what
2:27 am
happened to the by the afterwards so we are not sure. what's happened exactly to the kushal here but we know that he was dismembered and carried from one building to the adder and yes until now this might be the biggest proof that shows us. some clues about what happened to casually at the counseling building in the stump so clearly they almost for up as many questions as perhaps they are answered these pictures could they change the course of turkey's investigation said the team now the prosecutor's office now go and get a search warrant to search the residence again well there's no way that they're going to be able to search show the embassy property without the consent of the saudis so they can get a search warrant if they still can't search unless the saudis consent the embassy in its grounds or sovereign territory belongs to saudi arabia not to turkey so to
2:28 am
me if we look at it then from from a legal angle is there any way to circumvent that saw as bob says is the saudi consul general zinni president will now off limits for the turks investigation. well certainly and the common that was made is quite right it is it is covered by diplomatic immunity of course there are all different levels of diplomatic immunity depending upon the mission in question obviously for the consulate general's residence and the consulate mission it has a different level of diplomatic immunity to what a member c. does and is covered by different international legislation but it's quite right that if the saudis don't want to play ball if they don't want to cooperate it's going to make it incredibly difficult if not impossible for the turkish authorities to get into a warrant a search warrant and to those premises the other issue that we have is this is
2:29 am
a matter that took place some time ago. it is highly unlikely that that that any search those premises would yield any positive results of this stage but what we do have a number of identified individuals carrying black bags out of the consulate taking them to the consul general. premises where we've already heard the chemical such as acid have already previously been identified. and if those individuals are connected directly to mohammed bin salim on as we believe they they are then of course that does change the picture although it effectively clarifies information that we already have that he was murdered that this was not a rogue operation and it is highly likely that it reaches the highest elements of the saudi royal family ok well look a little bit more about the investigation or later in this discussion and the role that these sort of pictures could play in that same i'm just interested to get an
2:30 am
idea as to why turkey has released these particular pictures now is a continuation is that of this trip leaking of information that we've been seeing the past three months. well actually it does information's as i said earlier was also included in the book as well and turkey is conducting its image investigation but also trying to give chance to be out to reveal itself however and so far we haven't see any corporation attempts from decided yet of us so turkey is releasing its information leaked by leaked and trying to. so that the case is still continue despite the time. despite it has been hard to time since the murder has been committed so it's not on and it's not an attempt to you know sag investigation but on the contrary they are trying to show that the
2:31 am
investigations the continues and turkey has information and. there is still chance to reveal what happened and lights in the crime itself. but at this stage when we've seen hassani has reacted so far to all the revelations that we've seen it's already working is that this continuous release of bits of information here and there is not making the saudis come forward and say ok yes we'll reveal everything to you know it hasn't and it won't bother is no reason in the world why the saudis would want to reveal everything we we're having a bit of a maybe a semantical issue the saudis are claiming it's a rogue operation and people are listening to that saying well maybe him be wasn't behind it why just one could define a rogue operation as anything that took place with the blessing of the king. now
2:32 am
one thing that we haven't done yet or i have not seen done yet to dispute this rogue allegation allegation would be a complete and detailed timeline of events starting with when they first knew could show he was going to the embassy when the murder team was put on alert when they flew into turkey when they flew back i think if we put the timing together in a sequence where all of the events took place relative to each other it would be extremely clear this was not a rogue operation it was planned and it was executed with central control and that's not the definition of a rogue operation ok i didn't do agree with that do you think if everything is laid out in a chronological fastened then it would be a much clearer link from the mud to the saudi crown prince. absolutely i think that's exactly what's needed is
2:33 am
a complete timeline of events i think it's a very sensible approach to looking in terms of determining who was responsible and how far this goes clearly if you are to look back and you are able to establish a chain of events whether it leads directly to mohammed bin solomon or some other person senior official within within the the saudi authorities it will establish responsibility i think is also just to just to comment briefly on the previous point was you know whether this release of information by the turkish authorities is helpful or whether it's going to change anything i don't think it's helpful and i don't think it will change anything i completely agree with both speakers that it's not if it's not compelling the saudi authorities to do anything and they're not going to not in their interest to cooperate and it's not in the interest to to disclose that information so we have to have
2:34 am
a very clear. chain of events so that we can actually determine responsibility but then that's all leading towards which i'm sure is going to be one of the next points where do we go from there where do we take it what what court of laura's actually going to hear this and whether this is ever going to be in front of a court of law that's of course a bigger question that play and as you say we'll get to that in just a band as want to first of all touch on what we're saying in this new book diplomatic atrocity because there is a new audio is those being revealed from the book and how far does that go to establishing this timeline because we're hearing or data from before. actually and said the consulate. well actually the book shows that. there are artists of recordings your recording software went so previously very thinking that there is only a seven minute long golf. kushel yes killing but now we see that
2:35 am
there is a pro used part of that so in this part two we see that roofs do murderous prep lent us already determined because we assume some of to remembers of the hits talking about commas in caution you to return to reality but if they have failed they'll commit to murder they speak these words from their mouth we can hear them talking well at least the book shows as disparate and also we see that in this recording see returned here do chainsaws wars that. dismember kushal and we see. the members of her talking about the murder itself while they're committing murders so. all teams who was you carjacked and pro i decide information about how things happened and lastly they tell kushal to write
2:36 am
to his son about hughes saying if he he turned hear from him for a while that shouldn't be worried about him and question he refuses to do that so after the to members of the are trying to stir angle him being a whole hear that from due course so details crucial details vary i'm saying and building up a picture but as we've established there's still no smoking gun one thing that also wants to pick up i found it quite interesting that the book says that a call by one of the key suspects in the tribe saying. tell the boss the deed is done this was something that was extensively reported the book says it never actually took place and toby i'm just wondering how crucial a piece of evidence that was in providing the link between the murder and the saudi crown prince. not something which has been has been discussed in the past is is
2:37 am
that you know the deed is done until the boss the deed is done i mean all of all of these recordings are of course important for stablish in what actually took place and of course they will have to be authenticated in order to be used because what we're talking about is yes they're important for for for these purposes in understanding what took place but to what extent a they going to be admissible usable in a court of law to to actually hold individuals accountable for the murder. it's going to be difficult to authenticate that and to establish who who that message was directed to we can of course a stew but as as you know a court of law does not make assumptions and has to be based on evidence which is reliable so i think it was still some far away from from establishing that but obviously it is incredibly important in establishing how these matters to place and
2:38 am
the fact that this was premeditated or tell the boss the deed is done is fairly clear as to they were acting under instructions but let's look at the potential for invests and slash the investigation whether it would take place what indeed it would achieve in the texas still calling for the u.n. to norwich some sort of. international investigation do you think that is worth doing at this stage. i see very little purpose in an international investigation first of all and it seems as if the sole source of evidence as to the murder is coming out of turkish intelligence sources these recordings of what took place in the embassy are coming from turkish intelligence and i would note by the way that they didn't have the recording devices or the listening devices turned on only wanted to show he went into the embassy because obviously been there before and they've continued being there after unless the saudis have found them and
2:39 am
disable them but the question is if you have an international investigation wonderful and the international best occasion concludes as i think the entire world has already concluded it was an organized saudi hit team that went in and murdered this man and then went back to saudi arabia the international investigation just claims that to be true so what is it ever going to go in a court of law i turned to let me say it would it be admissible would not be admissible and more fundamental question is will it ever go into a court of law the saudis are going to turn these people all over to a court of law to be tried and under most civil justice systems if you partake in a murder you're an accomplice to murder you are also guilty of murder so that it teams guilty of murder is the ambassador also guilty of murder because he condone this activity or the people that dispatch them from saudi with the intent of going into istanbul and killing
2:40 am
a man are they guilty of being an accomplice to murder where do you draw the line at some point in time there's going to be so many saudis potentially involved in this that it would be impossible to consider the saudi government turning them over for trial so i don't want to set up in a scene from ok i do what do what i said to you agree with that because again i mean another thing that we took from the book one of the key suspects the toxicologists the bega he supports the living a for a man with his family in a villa in desert and he's one of the key suspects the saudis that was going to face trial and then that really doesn't seem to be the case. well the book says that you was taught to be not a limelight so i'm not sure if he's a free man but i'm sure according to that he's not detained as we understand so yeah as i said before so these are not cooperating on finding the responsibles for on this murderous so. from my point of view an international investigation is
2:41 am
definitely necessary and as mentioned many times before it's called it's having negotiations with the u.n. on the matter because there are still two main questions that turkey is asking first of all there is question of this body we still don't know that. although we have some footage on carrying black bags of the murderous you don't know what happened to those bags since the turkish. research team couldn't find any trace sauf that in the building the second question is who ordered to murders we still don't have a clear explanation on that matter to older men and the clues are pointing at the crown prince we don't have any proof of proof over that. book also.
2:42 am
force a fight to come and understood come in knowledge of. the deed is done protection of mars and think does this does turkey really believe that we're ever going to get conclusive a conclusive answer to either of those questions. well there is no harm in hoping so there is nothing we can do right now we have to do what there were it takes three build these crime scenes our responsibility as a inter nation and coming to ensure it will do whatever it takes to. establish that tell me how careful does turkey need to be able to touch on the air about it spying on the saudi consul listening in i mean the book bra says aside these concerns by saying it was not deliberately listing i mean does that washing on international court a rule. well that's a that's a very difficult position for turkey to find themselves in that they're having to
2:43 am
admit that they were listening in on a foreign mission and that maybe questions are asked at a later stage as to whether they are listening in on other missions. the information that has come i previously was that the turkish intelligence prefers directional listening devices rather than actually placing bugs in consulate and diplomatic missions so it's likely that that was the method that they were using. it it's it strikes me as very difficult to believe that they were inadvertently listening to to what was actually happening and that this would seem to be something that they they have been doing. that that aside. you also have to look at the question of how that could now be used but i think the question could be could be asked of turkey as as to whether they are listening in on all international missions within within their borders that is a that is
2:44 am
a question that that may well be asked at a later stage in the meantime but do you think we're ever going to get true justice for christians is murder. short answer is no let's examine what we would need to get more answers to his murder one some intelligence organization whether it's the turks the british the french the germans the american n.s.a. would have to have more information that they had gathered that hasn't been released yet and that would provide a little bit more information but all tamale this crime is going to be solved through interrogation of the people that were participating in the crime which means sitting down and interrogating saudi nationals and the saudi government is never going to allow all of these people that run ball than this murder to be interrogated by foreign law enforcement people it's just not going to happen so the answers we have now unless there's more information forthcoming from the
2:45 am
intelligence community i think is all we're ever going to see ok sam it is them all information that's not yet been released i've had def an inside story before absolutely adamant that there is a smoking gun that is so withholding well there is no way of knowing that's far from my point of we like to live but i'm sure that if there is more evidence it's build there have built in a short period of time we'll see if that's all together ok thank you very much all of you for joining this discussion to continue the revelations and looking at the revelations into the mud of general thanks to all our guests shaimaa. to be catman and bob as. and thank you too very much for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website. called a further discussion to go to our facebook page at facebook dot com for slash a.j.
