embassy to escape the british legal system police offices hold him out again ecuador had finally tired of its troublesome guest and revoked his right to asylum within hours he was in a u.k. court and the u.s. confirmed it wants him extradited i just fame with mr sanchez in the police cells he wants to thank all of his supporters today ongoings it was and he said i told you so the wiki leaks founder always said if he left his ambassadorial refuge he'd spend years in jail in the us he's wanted there for publishing government secrets but to a sandra's fans some high profile he's a courageous whistleblower because he's been told which i did not and say this helps it's been undermined you know all this stuff but fortunately he has his brain and his immune system to nice guy principles and using debit and not enough away
from you know and he's a freedom fighter joining us on she has his supporters here in the u.k. but the district judge here in this case was not one of them he said that a sound his behavior was that of a narcissist you cannot go beyond his own self interest in finding guilty of the charge of skipping by back in twenty twelve and has sent his case to the crown court for sentencing the more serious extradition process will get under way at the beginning of may in twenty ten wiki leaks published footage provided by whistleblower chelsea manning of u.s. soldiers killing civilians in iraq the u.s. said the hack posed a grave security risk but the website also leaked e-mails from the inbox of ecuador's president and first lady sanders hosts words amused. the patients of ecuador has reached its limits on the behavior of mr song he installed electronic and distortion equipment that was not. allowed he blocked the security cameras of the ecuadorian mission in london he has confronted and mistreated guards he had
access to security files of our embassy without permission other former supporters won't forgive him for the twenty sixteen us election they think the wiki leaks publication of democratic party e-mails may have tipped it for donald trump and even though sweden has dropped sex assault prosecutions that led to his first u.k. arrest for some he'll remain a suspected rapist will reach an ins how to zero london for hillary clinton says assad's needs to answer for what he has done but a republican who defeated her at the two thousand and sixteen presidential election is denying all knowledge of wiki leaks despite and the past praising the anti-secrecy organization. i know nothing about wiki leaks it's not my thing and i know there is something having to do with it julie was ours i have been saying what happened with i saw it and that will be a determination i would imagine mostly by the attorney general who is doing an
excellent job so he'll be making a determination i know nothing really about him it's not my it's not my deal in life but yes he was going to surprise you and i don't really have any opinion i know the attorney general will be involved in that he'll make a decision. he has more reaction out of washington d.c. . it's been reported that obama era prosecutors decided they couldn't indict julian assange without indicting the act of journalism itself that is receiving classified information in the public interest but reveals evidence of war crimes for example of trump lawyers they think they have found a way they say that julian assange is guilty of one count of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion he was involved in the hack of department of defense computers but the that relies on three particular aspects one that encouraged chelsea manning to give him more information to the judas on protected chelsea
manning's identity and already those two are causing concerns those two parts of the entire with a cause of concern among journalists because that would appear just to be drone listed behavior not criminal behavior but three the trump prosecutors use these four words in the indictment no luck so far and they use those four words to make the case that those words are discussing a sounders attempts himself to try and break a pos would or a partial password that chelsea manning had supplied them it's pretty thin stuff there a lot for an extradition judge to consider because clearly if the u.s. is successful in extraditing june innocence from london then other governments around the world will also feel they're able to extradite journalists who print information that shows their governments in a poor light there's a lot riding on this so if you're ever sent us one of the scientists legal adviser explains the charges against the whistleblower. they've charged him and i think
this is carefully he's been deliberately play by the americans and the british spin doctor ought to be charged with one of it which carries a five year prison sentence we know they've got more and they've got sixty days in which they can add further charges and they can even add with the approval of the british government charges after a successful x. tradition so this is no there was an indication last year the charges they want to bring against him carry up to forty five years in prison so early day. today which was disgrace in my view but from higher judges he'll get a very fair hearing as to whether america has these kind of exorbitant jurisdiction that can pluck out a publisher if they can pluck out a sonders they get the editor of the guardian the beagle and so forth they've got this theory you know america boasts about freedom of speech and the first amendment
but the trumpet ministration is arguing that the first amendment doesn't apply to non americans to british show or. arab or straight in journalist so they can deny him the protections but can they get him can they reach out across the sea and bring some money in who's publish true information united states has denied entry to the co-founder of the boycott divestment and sanctions movement or b.d.s. which protests israeli oppression of palestinians he was pulled aside as he tried to board a flight in cell of the arab israeli citizen was leaving for a speaking tour and to attend his daughter's wedding a u.s. state department official said the surf easels were never based solely upon political statements or. argued he says the incident won't hinder his campaign. when we continue our b.d.s. movement for kind of sting in rights because they will not deter us yes it hurts
for me to miss my daughter's wedding but the events that were planned for me in the united states whether qatar or it kind of his school of government or new york university or the u.s. congress or many other events are going ahead i will be there. rather than in person but that events would continue my interviews with the media i was supposed to have three or four media interviews a.p. new york times reuters it has exploded to many many many requests for an interview so they cannot silence me and i will reach out to many many more people after this ban and we will continue intensifying the b.d.s. movement to pressure israel to recognize our basic rights under international law this movement is categorically opposed to only forms of free system and discrimination be it and to black and to muslim or anti jewish and racism and we're very morally consistent yes movement we do not work with any and to jewish the good
sense of any sort we're a movement for human rights and we call for the rights of all people respected of identity but israel's lobby in the us is terrified of the growth of the us movement and its impact with churches trade unions college campuses and that makes artists and g.b.t. activists and others joining b.s. it's really mainstreaming and that is terrifying israel's regime. and as i was face craft has crashed on the moon shattering hopes of historic controlled landing and man robotic lander encountered a series of technical failures during the twenty one minute landing sequence the spacecraft travel through space for seven weeks in a series of expanding orbits around earth before crossing into the moon's gravity last week. for months at backward to another giant leap forward for space x. it's launched its first paid cargo into space that accomplished something else too that your eyes may not quite believe enter chapelle has more. to.
the world's most powerful rocket takes off from cape canaveral in florida on its first commercial flight under the peril of five point one million pounds of tourist ferric and heavy is headed to space already towering more than twenty three stories in height the space x. falcon heavy packs twice as much power as any other rocket on earth. i this time rock and heavy is carrying a telecommunications satellite into orbit but its future missions will push military satellites and ferry passengers into space for a cheaper price per mission than ever before burn will begin roughly ninety million dollars per month which thanks. i
was thank you i the company is bringing down costs by reusing its powerful first stage boosters which land themselves at a nearby site was and for the first time a third rocket lands on a remote landing pad in the atlantic ocean this three for three landing is a technological feat for the company which wants to dominate space transportation and or chapell al-jazeera. to speak to any thompson in orlando florida by skype she covered the space x. launch today for space dot com thank you so much for joining us so how long has this been at this accomplishment been in the making. well a little over a year so i asked here in february space-x. flew its first falcon heavy demo mission which carried brad tesla piloted by star man in
a little space so that was the first demonstration mission and then this is the first operational mission with a paying customer so explain the significance of these amazing pictures that we have seen. ok you got excited over there. and you know it's so exciting it's really incredible to think that just a couple years ago landings were considered science fiction and now in space x. landed not one but three this is so what do you think the next step is what is the takeaway from this. takeaway is that. space x. is going to be able to help facilitate more missions in more companies and private entities to be able to get off the ground because they've reduced the cost of spaceflight so by reusing these boosters the price of missions drop
significantly who is this used to i mean the technology obviously is amazing but who is is this avenue appealing to. well for example the israeli lunar lander that unfortunately didn't make a successful landing on the moon today they were able to launch their mission cost around one hundred million dollars and they were able to. ride on a space x. rocket tucked inside the payload fairing with a couple of other satellites so basically like a cosmic carpool. ok let's talk about a people corporal when is this when is it really realistic that in some white there will be a civilian use for this. i would think so yes so starting this summer space x. is targeting i want to say july to actually ferry people on it's crew
dragon capsule so that will be the first test and it's going to have two astronauts that are going to go to the international space station and then. eventually on to the moon and mars space x. is also working on a larger vehicle called the star ship that is actually going to be able to carry on hundred people in space a hundred people while that's all right only one bag getting me tom said thank you so much for joining us from orlando we appreciate it. thank you. still ahead on al-jazeera. the choices we face all stock and the timetable is clear britain's prime minister defends her decision to delay or exit. the children left behind as parents are forced to find work outside of venezuela. and that's where the baseball player breaking the wrong sort records are has that story coming out.

many in both the government and opposition parties the six month brags that extension the e.u. has given the u.k. was longer than mrs may had wanted but shorter than that suggested by european commission president jean-claude juncker and other leaders the compromise was because of french president emanuel mccrum he'd said a long delay would undermine the project of european integration. u.k. opposition labor leader jeremy corbyn described the need for a second extension to bragg's it as a diplomatic failure but he said he was committed to continue talks with the government labor will continue to engage constructively in talks because we respect the results the referendum and we are committed to defending the jobs industry and living standards by delivering a close economic relationship with the european union and securing frictionless trade with improved rights and standards mr korwin also left open the option of
calling for a referendum on any deal with grief with the government if the political parties agree a way forward then the u.k. could avoid taking. party in european parliamentary elections and leave the e.u. before the october thirty first deadline even if both sides do find some way of coming together the e.u. withdrawal deal will still contain a clause guaranteeing an open border between northern ireland and the irish republic whatever happens in future e.u. u.k. negotiations and it's this backstop that has prevented previous attempts by the prime minister to get to a deal through parliament and so far there's no indication that m.p.'s will be any less divided on this in six months than they are now bernard smith al-jazeera london. an american investor who denies committing fraud in russia has been released from prison and put under house arrest michael calvery has worked in russia for thirty years he says he is being pressured by rival shareholders in
