again you want ya deserve let's have a reminder of our top stories this is high court has rejected an appeal by two boys whose journalists were arrested while investigating the killing of ten working to muslims the court upheld the seventy year prison terms handed down while known chop suey. program as the international is accusing sudan security forces of attacking injured protesters while they were being treated many of them up and leave to be heard to wednesdays and go straight to. the us president has visited the border with mexico to drum up support for his five point seven billion dollar war a double trump threatening to declare a national emergency if democrats continue to refuse funding. iran's foreign minister has dismissed thursday's speech by us that your state might pompei outlining america's policy in the middle east and it's wait mohammed jeffords out
even said whenever wherever the u.s. interferes chaos repression or resentment follow the day iran mimics u.s. clients and pompei as human rights models be it the shah current butches to become a normal country it is the day that hell freezes over that's for the us to just get over the loss of iran was a riff was reacting to my proposed speech in cairo where he rallied the u.s. allies to contain terror on the influence in the region just profit as will. the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei always touring the middle east almost described as a mission focused on shoring up support among arab allies against iran. since withdrawing from the two thousand and fifteen iran nuclear deal last year the u.s. has increased pressure on teheran which accuses of being a destabilizing force in the region many middle east experts say pushing iran into
a corner is a dangerous move but in the egyptian capital cairo america's top diplomat didn't mince his words the nations of the middle east will never enjoy security achieve economic stability or advance the dreams of their people of iran's revolutionary regime persists on its current course america's economic sanctions against the regime are the strongest in history and will keep getting tougher until iran starts behaving like a normal country. middle east follows confusion about donald trump's withdrawal of a round two thousand u.s. troops from northern syria. the president's announcement schult arab allies as well as a u.s. political leaders and military commanders concerned that the battle against eisel in syria and the wider region is not over yet pompei i tried to reassure them the president has made the decision to bring our troops home from syria we always
do and now is the time but this isn't a change of mission we were made committed to the complete dismantling of isis the isis threat and the ongoing fight against radical islamism in all of its forms the u.s. withdrawal from syria is also having ramifications for american relations with nato ally turkey u.s. troops have been working with kurdish y.p. chief i choose who control a large area of northern syria close to the turkish border turkey considers the white peachey a terrorist organization president received type order one said the suggestion on choose day by u.s. national security adviser john bolton a protecting the white p.g. as a precondition to the u.s. troop withdrawal plan was a serious mistake it was very little if anything from pumpin about the store while the israeli palestinian peace process very little on the saudi and amorality led war in yemen that has killed tens of thousands displaced millions with millions
more threatened with famine and disease. pressure increased on president trump from both democrat and republican senators to end support for the saudi involvement in yemen after the murder of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi many suspect crown prince muhammad bin solomon ordered a saudi hit squad to fly to istanbul last october that the united states is the main provider of saudi military assistance aid and support in the war in yemen so the the not united states is not an objective observer at the war of yemen it's an accomplice in the water of yemen. pompei was keen to lay much of the blame for what many describe as years of chaos in the middle east on former president barack obama's administration president trump has reasserted america's control as a force for good in these region he said we have rediscovered our voice. there are
millions of people throughout this region who are grateful for the u.s. led coalition success in the battle against eisel but there will also be many made nervous by u.s. administration that blames the region's instability and the previous u.s. president on the wrong chance trafford al-jazeera. well iran is also going to be on top of pumpers agenda as he arrives in bahrain one of his main objectives is to curb what he calls iran's destabilizing activities in the region bahrain has not accused iran of interfering in his to messed up policies of gulf nation is one of four are countries imposing a blockade on carter muslim but both manama and doha a political allies of the united states is also likely to discuss bahrain's possible role in syria's post-war reconstruction last month manama along with the u.a.e. reopen the embassies in damascus for the first time since the start of the conflict . the u.n. says special rapporteur for human rights in north korea has described the country
as a prison speaking from seoul to must. confirm the presence of political prison camps often speaking to north korean defectors but right is the latest now from seoul. this is the fifth visit to south korea by the current special rapporteur as he draws up a picture of the human rights situation in north korea as previously he's been meeting with defectors and also senior officials here in seoul this is of course as close as he will get to north korea itself despite repeated requests there's no chance of a visit there the north koreans dismiss the work of the special rapporteurs saying that the evidence of defectors is simply untrustworthy it comes at an interesting time diplomatically with a number of human rights advocates saying that not enough has been done by the united states and to a certain extent south korea in pushing the human rights issue and that with all
the talk of a second summit meeting between donald trump of the united states and also a visit by kim jong un to south korea the issue of human rights should not be left out should not be put to one side. he says that with all the positive developments they want just witnessed in the past few years the sort of more regrettable that the reality for human rights on the ground remains unchanged and continues to be extremely serious of those who lived in the north recently that i interviewed you and this mission. gave accounts of ordinary people being subject to this look at the labor and serious human rights violations such to such as forced evictions in the name of the development story swerved close to me of people including children been subject to long hours of forced labor where they were forced to work without
remuneration this visit also comes on the back of what see it as a north korea's diplomatic success with kim jong un's visit to beijing being hosted by president xi jinping of china. the promise from she for a reciprocal visit to north korea this is a timely reminder according to north korea's critics of the brutal reality of everyday life there and that this is still very much a repressive regime they say responsible as documented by the united nations for prison camps where more than one hundred thousand political prisoners being held and west starvation torture and executions they say are commonplace british m.p.'s are expected to debate the migration in the rights of british and the citizens of the brics it on friday in the lead up to the crucial deal that next week the government has already indicated it wants to reduce european immigration by eighty
percent when it leaves the early reports now from london. remember this it was one of the reasons leave one in the backseat referendum take back all the money the u.k. gives to the european union and spend it on the british health service instead it proved a very powerful message but how to square that with alice sandra's story by the time he'd left italy for london he had a master's degree and four years specialist experience in mental health this is starting salary in britain was around twenty five thousand dollars a year under the government's proposals he would never have been allowed into the u.k. because that salary would be too low for him to get a work permit to brick says i know who is going to pay for the visa for working visa in the future for obviously a lot of people that. don't apply. mainlining in this in your thirty nine on the net or for you. they they will sign up before for example in the
u.k. rather than. to your struggle as it stands there are one hundred thousand unfilled roles in the british oil service and dire warnings about the looming crisis as european nationals leave the country the royal college of nursing is so worried he says join the campaign for a second referendum calling for a rethink about leaving the school there's something quite challenging about thinking that highly skilled always means highly and what we need to do is really think in the public sector what is the value that people bring in the eyes a minute in terms. of the skills that i have so i think we need to think differently what's happening in the health service reflects a bigger question is immigration really the problem it's a say sees there are two entirely conflicting narratives at play in the u.k. at the moment the government's arguing that there is far too much european migrant
labor and is taking away jobs from british people but at the same time the government congratulates hisself. having wrecked hold low unemployment's it does rather raise the question if the government does what it says it wants to and reduce european immigration by eighty percent and who exactly is going to do all the work there is an argument in cabinet between people who really care far more about restricting immigration than about the u.k. economy led by the prime minister and the rest of the cabinet and of course the business community who want to make preserving the interest of the u.k. economy a priority and that hasn't been resolved like having argued that the u.k. was at breaking points because of uncontrolled immigration politicians are now presented with a chance of reducing the single asleep if that happens the country will find out what the migrants are such a problem to rule lawrence li al jazeera london. isn't most it says it's filed a criminal complaint against former chairman colace for breach of trust and is
accused of underreporting its not only by millions of dollars he says he's been unfairly detained for almost two months and was fired by the board of medicine and mitsubishi but was kept on by runner. last vegas police of. a d.n.a. sample from portuguese football star christiana rinaldo the thirty three year old denies assaulting katherine my old girl at a las vegas hotel in two thousand and nine were not as lloyd says the d.n.a. request is standard football and currently plays for juventus in italy. brazil a state governor is refusing to back down on his prison reforms despite organized crime gangs retaliating against him some inmates have been moved to other prisons and had their phones confiscated and. the governor of the capital of the laser has been explaining his crackdown on crime to our correspondent on. the earth or it is at the state security headquarters daily planned their next steps in the battle
they know as a need just began. their monitoring for further violence from drug gangs which launched a wave of attacks across sierra after moves to curtail the power of their leaders serving time in jail. president. sent national troops they were welcomed by the sarah state governor camille santana or the he's from the opposition workers' party . this is a moment of union in this country brazil should work together with the national government to tackle this problem there are painful consequences but we must work in that direction to win the fight against organized crime in brazil it was the governor's initiative to tackle the growing strength of the drug gangs starting in the prisons. as soon as we started reorganizing the prison system the attacks took place on the streets gang members reacted by trying to intimidate the state government trying to make us back off but we are doing exactly the opposite we are
tightening our actions removing any kind of communication from inside the prisons isolating and transferring some of the prisoners to other states the two main drug gangs are the cell paolo based first capital command or p.c.c. and the rio based red command their fight for supremacy often coordinated and fort within these walls the irony is that these prisons were built to contain the captured drug members instead they've become recruiting and training grounds and even power base is the author it is said that that must end. their initial priority is their fight in the jails however the state is also dealing with the gangs on the streets while implementing social programs to try to lure youngsters away from the lucrative but deadly trade so what's going to be stark criminal groups born inside the prisons so for decades we didn't have a proper policy to debate or improve depended to ensure a system that was never prioritized not only here but in the whole of brazil so
when the state decided to act against these gangs didn't react as strongly but the street is even stronger the violence affects many layers of brazilian society the attacks and sadly frightening away investment especially in the vital tourist industry come out only i see a reduction of fifty percent of the about the shrimp i'm selling these days the beach is quite empty especially for this period of summer holidays in brazil. the focus now is back behind these walls but few expect to stay there for long that their al-jazeera for to listen. to china has released a panoramic photograph taken on the fall site of the moon its force lunar program was the first in the history of space exploration to make a soft landing but the image was created by merging eighty pictures taken by a camera mounted pro stuff.
so this is zero these are the top stories high court judges in mineral have rejected an appeal by two reuters journalists having seven year prison sentences. convicted of breaking the official secrets act by reporting. villages reporters say they were framed by police who gave them classified documents. today's ruling is yet another injustice among many inflicted upon while lone and. they remain behind bars for one reason those in power sought to silence the truth reporting is not a crime and until meehan maher writes this terrible wrong the press it mean maher is not free and the inmarsat commitment to rule of law and democracy remains in doubt iran's foreign minister has dismissed my pump a speech on american policy in the middle east saying u.s. interference only leads to chaos repression and resentment speaking cari the u.s.
secretary of state rallied its allies to deter terence influence in the region. president obama trump has traveled to the country's southern border trying to drum up support for his proposal between the united states and mexico his demands for five point seven billion dollars for the project have led to a partial government shutdown. sudan's security forces being accused of attacking protesters while they were receiving treatment at a hospital in. amnesty international says offices five live bullets and tear gas at patients many of them believed to have been hurt at wednesday's anti-government demonstrations where three people were killed venezuela's president is vying to correct what he calls deep mistakes during his second term because maduro has been sworn in for another six year term. american countries are refusing to recognize his presidency many condemned as

to the southern city. and his feeling debate and social tension. but how accurate are the so-called threats. i'm steve cho on this episode a one on one east we investigate the truth behind the headlines. everybody wants fifty and you know we kind of want to move patrolling around the sun say meaning. to go to a. detective acting inspector helen chugged and senior sergeant jason forster on patrol in melbourne's north western suburbs.
are sixty. senators. they're going to be on for an hour. and a client. and her art. form jane. trial you earn our church out so it was the same idea hey sorry what's the situation there now reports of a home invasion a coming in. front forward towards a more. solitude which will haunt it was law they've kicked that in damage the law for family members were seated around. kitchen time who might have demand for a case to the eddie. to chant back at the shuttle go to the abbey drive off. just yet if you can just get the years to keep an eye out for black. two thousand
and thirteen since the quad brazen crime isn't to kick you in the door of a someone's home while they're at home or industry as horrendous crime you know absolutely it is. violent home invasions like this have residents in these suburbs on age. in march and her husband gavin were sleep when four teenagers broke down the back door. i just remember. just yelling and just screaming at us to just shut up and just give us money and i got him got out of the bed and. physically pushed we had two of them in the room and he got up and physically pushed them out and shut the bedroom door on them. he's then grabbed a baseball bat from underneath the bed at which point i had ms come through the
bedroom door multiple times of them trying to get in with us with literally our entire body way on the door trying to prevent them from getting to us. home security cameras captured gavin chasing the young men out the front but he couldn't stop them stealing both their cars. it's just it's too traumatizing for me to go back there a member. i don't know how they can say that. the crime rate is falling because everyone like everyone i know doesn't nobody feel safe. the teenagers described as being of african appearance a still on the run was every time i see a black person on a street or. just anywhere it's like
a trigger. be full of this happened i wasn't scared of black people or people of color or whatever but now it's psych i can even black face someone in a stall that's black because of what's happened to me and i think that's really unfair and shouldn't be like that. it's not it's not damn like i haven't done anything wrong to me but i can't help but associate that entire with them as and that's what's really unfair. i would be pretty cool quantities of african gangs running riot terrorizing robbing
breaking after bush get together to return to the north pole because report on. the i know you want one. sit outside. to feel you have to bring your best behavior to enforce them because you feel like you're representing your skin color for one disses like you see you have to be extra nice person like extra smile even if you're not feeling it that day you just have to have a smile on because if you don't you look scary istead it is like imagining someone's looking through you like looking like you know like someone's eyes are just burning inside of you had a sort of feels like sense to. me. pick up a stack and take it now but. thank you. twenty year old tired him a separated at birth from his parents during sudan's brutal civil war bill he hasn't seen him since. when i was born. the war it was happening so minimal that
separated my grandma being here she isn't you know the strong lady she is to me with her family possibly. i mean all your fault of. melbourne he's been his home since he was five. every day to try to convince you armstrong and i think you know what we know we're starting to grow up here who have to why do washing has to convince youngster is it. on the mind is wherever they go in and his friends feel job which is just to do with you. see i realise it's not like one percent of us this crime in every single race just. because it's. these people commit crime in every single race but with us for some reason it gets put onto the whole culture the whole.
whole you might call it a gets blamed for the actions of the few now. to. try to. use the. gangs of young sides are threatening a violent confrontation at tonight's the system. police arrived to reclaim the streets but it was too light and they were outnumbered. because. the focus on african gang crime began in march twenty sixth jane when violence broke out at the moon the festival at federation square in the center of melbourne i. had to gird service of african young people coming together in
melbourne there was a far cry karen became my rolling all they feel like some of that was because the place become involved and we started chasing they just play ball. game or sing cheers plane fly those same people which i stand the straight park place and that crowd all merit even in the media at the top and a lot of political pressure. on me sort of videos those stupid kids they got riled up right the did them stuff and they she should be a it's not right what they did i don't agree with it at all this is a stupid i'd place charged thirty seven people over the moon violence several links to a group known as the apex gang. todd just a bunch of young kids. from a small area largely people from. background although we did have some marys and
people from other pacific islanders in that group. apex was notorious for home invasions and carjackings in the city southeast police say at its peak the group numbered around one hundred thirty young men. but after an intense crackdown on apex police it's now been dismantled we just don't see them you know we're just not saying. that group. crimes anymore. victoria police are basing further criticism with claims they've lost control to street gangs has my view there is a specific problem in victoria to do with people of african background. i don't see it is as a violent african gang crisis. certainly we have an issue we have an issue with our
youth in the state but i believe we can timing that issue. everybody welcome to you know tell me who worked with before so i had detective acting inspector child is briefing her team before another night out on patrol so just be careful that you don't get tied up with other job so you are specifically he respond to any higher being they're part of a dedicated task force tackling youth crime in melbourne's west so the way we're task force came about as a result of the evolution of the harm invasion offense and carjacking and breeze that was saying being committed by multiple. people born in sudan. make up zero point one percent of victoria's population but account for one percent of the state's alleged criminal offenders. young sudanese miles
are overrepresented insertion violent crimes allegedly committing close to ten percent of aggravated robbery in terms of numbers are overall numbers for that hard crime. high impact crime the numbers are quite small when you look at youth crime in particular we have the second lowest crime rate in this trial productivity commission measures victoria now as the most fearful state in the nation why are people feeling so scared if crime is dropping yeah i think that's a really interesting one and certainly you know one of the one of the things that victoria police and the cumi really need to focus on. to people have to base scythe i have to feel saif so there's a lot of perception issues i think that we need to deal with as well.
wrote a book. nineteen year old a dane came to australia from south sudan with his brother when he was just three. he's not seen his mum or dad since. i had to grow up myself and i had to figure out how to become a memo soft. stuff. you know. and i was supporting the point of. he has a photo of his mom on his phone screensaver and dreams of going to visit her in south sudan. when i was. to the area. of the city.
and dean's friend arrow has five brothers and sisters he says his mom is worried for him. doesn't even know what to think anymore like i can tell her all the things in the world but she says their home mom well she does believe what the news says. she also knows that us like whoa these kids are out of control she can't even trust me because whatever i say you know channel seven will say otherwise for through the streets so it's like she doesn't know what to say. a demon arrowhead started a music label called sixty six records arrow is one of the managers and dean an aspiring rapper. records with the firsts we think is the first black own label in mobile and in australia. we just want to be the first ones to make you know i
don't know anyone here on the ferrari here in nova i don't know anyone with a mansion you know why can't there be me. but back. to. the number one. thing. on monday. since the whole apex thing being on the news and i came in get a job and care canada put back you have all the qualifications in the world but if i pull up to the interview no sudanese like we see why is this guy maybe we should you know be more cautious and just you know probably transport. you know people rather than from flynn mistreated and then sit next to me you know i care followed around in this grocery store with my mom like i'm stealing
groceries you know. in school or trying to tell me i couldn't hang out with a group of more than four people because of the look i would doing something i'm like. so they basically tell america live because i'm black is with the time. the members of sixty six records are acutely aware of how many see them and they play up to that image. already already is what was. in this video they mock the commercial media's coverage of african gangs while they jump around with knobs and rap about committing crimes when they don't you know wish we felt like we. was pretty good in your. mind ceasars here's a little bit of trouble with child minded or dealt with. you know we just knows
that playing the focus on all my voice they put videos out that are certainly anti establishment anti police and promote violence kill kill was when we. can you understand why the place would look at those lyrics or look at that music and be worried about it the reason we made the video was to profit off this fear basically. partly just we just some young kid being creative like it's like a movie to us you know because i we made our own movie but we're getting crucified for basically i don't know. i don't know what i can say what i can do to make the public believe me when i say i'm not you know i'm not crazy i'm not a criminal what can i save if that's already the position half and you don't want to speak to me or kind of said.
throughout these tensions have been building police have been under increasing pressure to be seen to act. you know dozens of teenagers may have a park in tieless hill for a planned finds between two teenage girls. last year to. tell us what you know about the truth of what happened at table sale. you know love the nude. picture the video something happened it was i guess so. teenagers being stupid essentially right. we're not going. to. close social media i want to live in areas like that and went to see what happened. miley when i first walked out
it was the fear a lot more could happen with the kids because i was at many of them. david driskell lives around the corner from the park. i do always criminal acts and then you see on the news in a way that i get away with it what do i get a why the african gangs are here the government cancels and the police say they're not here they are here and people risen and so. i think what we've seen is certainly what elements of what i would call moral panic we're saying headlines and reporting that exacerbates a problem and and report reporting on things that we're not necessarily saying so that causes us some concern certainly when you rode social media and other reporting platforms it's drawing community yanks and you know people are saying
african crime everywhere which is not necessarily because it's a place helicopter and the riot squad were cold. media reports said one hundred african youths were there that night placed say the number was closer to thirty. can you say then that the place overreacted i mean was it the place presence that actually exacerbated the community's fit it certainly contributed toward there were many residents who lived there in that area who were a fee for for them for their safety that nod and that's the challenge for so we go large numbers of play seem to execute perils in our responsibilities that the balance of forces in you then exacerbate that that feeling of the perception.
in september sixty six records held their official launch party at the the summer hotel in cola and. it was one of the biggest nights for young south sudanese people old. and in the current climate both place and sixty six where chords were on high alert we had legal advisors at the show and outside the show i wonder police about obviously the amount of people we spit to come and. white house john put out a statement telling the crowd to not give the public and the police what they wanted is a sudanese kids fighting and. police had met several times with sixty six records and the venue to discuss security they had
concerns about some of the people attending tyson was there as a trained legal observer to try and make sure there was no trouble. on the stairs as watching the performers a star right. this is amazing in seeing people small people people dance this is a crowd. but at around two thirty am once the main performance was over a fight broke out. some of the prance inside right and then their friends went to defend them was like oh yeah i do a bunch of i want to force my cousin the subway there right in the dutch escalated . when they try to break it up. we've opened up. to a hundred people cause my ham in collingwood after the violent brawl broke out by a group of youths.
so things went to take an outside and those guys were. beginning to fight with the other group. but they were outnumbered so one of their friends got into his car. and screaming at people move get off you know get off the road is the right. people start getting off the left to the left side there's still a good people the us it is guy come drive like into a group of people write. a car hit the crowd. and nineteen year old south sudanese man faces multiple charges. hammers eighteen year old cousin was badly injured his leg was lighter amputated.
is a real bright young kid you know he's always had. you know wrote energy about him he's the one that makes the you know the whole family smart. and you a great basketball player. about to go out and get a scholarship to a vessel. it's kind of heartbreaking that you know for us to put on a show like this for our community they couldn't respect us enough to you know hold back from fighting just for one. hour. this community came here in search of safety but is fear and distrust build outside these walls they wonder what the future will be for them and their children.
i really do not feel like i belong here i know i feel like i'm my parents made a mistake by trying to bring me here. and i feel as though you know in the next ten years or so there's not going to be up anywhere for my siblings to go comfortably because this would mean i feel as though my little brother is not going to be able to go get a job again right because of. him just so how they're betraying us right now i would deem it. shadowy financial operations or propping up north korea's economy pampering the elite and fueling the nation's missile additions. one on one east investigates north korea's secret money on al-jazeera. business updates brought to you by qatar airways going places together.
hello there this is the news hour live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes. the u.s. military says it's begun that pulling out its forces from syria. miles high court rejects an appeal by two reuters journalists jailed for breaking the official secrets act. rights groups condemn sudan's security forces for attacking anti-government protesters in a hospital. and u.s. president donald trump visits the border with mexico to make a case of funding to build a wall. and i'm we heard him here with all of your sport including an emotional andy murray an ounce he'll retire from tennis at it after the australian open and that it could be his last tournament. of the u.s. military says it has begun pulling out its troops from syria because
a coalition spokesman has refused to unveil any further details such as the location of the timeline of the two thousand soldiers withdrawal. is in the region to reassure allies following donald trump surprise announcement more than three weeks ago he says the pull out one to hinder the ongoing fight against eisold of war that's crossed now to mohammed. that's on the turkey syria border so behind this announcement comes as something of a surprise amid plenty of speculation over the timescale. yes laura most pulled out speculation had been caused by the changing positions of u.s. officials who. pointed out their forces would not withdrawal from syria. in a hasty way of course john bolton that national security adviser who visited the
region last a week said that it was conditional on election. to be assured by that awful they are allies in the fight against. all humans the. city and democratic forces as the. the ball calls its fighting force is the y.p. a group that attacked he sees as a terrorist organization of calls course common to really or wild. officials here have looked odd from them but this announcement of a chop with roll of all. time lines i'm not being mentioned this point will come us . leave. at one point felt that the u.s. forces will continue to goes to to stay in syria to protect the group that they see in a terrorist organization of course tekkie has an understanding with the united states

is when it comes to how long they would spend behind bars they were sentenced to seven years back in september there was a possibility with the appeal that that sense could be reduced but the court's on friday the high court in yangon saying that there was a suitable punishment of seven years because of the severity of what this case was about that it threatens to harm national security so these gentlemen for now will stay behind bars according to the high court in yangon for seven years now very soon after the word came out about this on friday the editor in chief of reuters made a statement today's ruling is yet another in justice among many inflicted upon why lone and. they remain behind bars for one reason those in power sought to silence the truth reporting is not a crime and until meehan maher writes this terrible wrong the press i mean mars is not free and the inmarsat commitment to rule of law and democracy remains in doubt now for the future what could happen to these two journalists now that their appeal
has been rejected the defense can appeal to the supreme court in myanmar's capital neighborhood or there's no indication or word that they will do that yet and then the only other option for them is if unsung suchi the state council or the leader of myanmar issues a pardon but again there's no word if that's going to happen either oh my he's my face co-founder of fortify rights that's no good it's a shame that what the investigative pieces and support human rights defenders he joins us now from. you say matthew was a shock trial of the highest order why's that. well you know these are two journalists who were essentially arrested and imprisoned for doing their jobs they were investigating a massacre and this was a trial in which it became very clear that. there was no evidence whatsoever that they had committed a crime and in fact it was revealed through the course of the trial that there were
