school discipline rules agreed in december but concerns mount the cash cow in germany is on a power grab in turn for its investment. for the last twelve months were characterized by a political and economic discontent ending in mass protests across the world next we ask russia's foreign ministries commissioner for human rights where he's assessment of what's happened. because i mean thank you very much for joining us today in two thousand and eleven we've seen a number of human rights violations taking place throughout the world and you want to throw the implementation of human rights a broad so today i would like to talk about those issues that caught your attention in two thousand and eleven but first of all i want to start with domestic issues and what is your view on the protests that took place in russia after the parliamentary elections in the country under some of the fourth does extremely important to stress that the reaction of the authorities has been
a very responsible one and i will see a very measured one like the reaction in some other countries and we've seen even so not only in the united states but we've seen in the for instance last summer in the united kingdom obviously it was quite a serious challenge to the authorities definitely it was not to be ignored but also what was some sort of all we reaction and it is not to be ignored so some of our partners tried to teach us some lessons of democracy we tell them that we are absolutely ready to listen to good races but we are not ready for some sort of lecturing some are saying that the us government's reaction to the occupy movement is going to result in further limitation limitations of the rights of the us citizens to believe this so the reaction of the authorities to those meetings and manifestations there was rather rude able to see and we've seen
it in the united states i mean the famous no movement occupy wall street it's also spilled over to some western european countries we've seen on c.n.n. on b.b.c. and other news channels we've seen pictures of wild forceful disruption of those protests and meetings by the police be have been quit a number of limitations. interviews after the terrorist acts of nine eleven and the famous patriot act has been adopted and inactive and there have been quite a number of limitations significantly limitations introduced and on the other hand the functions and progressive solve the of the f.b.i. and some other lawyer for small agencies have been significantly brought up so it is well known that the american human rights organizations are not satisfied with the situation and let's now talk about the so-called arab spring for a little while and how is actually going to react to the apparent abuse of human rights in libya will be raising the issue in different formats and unfortunately
during the period of armed conflict in libya there have been quite a number of aliens of international humanitarian norms and international humanitarian law both by the forces loyal to moammar gadhafi and by the forces loyal to the then opposition forces and also they have been careful to significant casualties among the civilian population resulting from the nato operation it is not to be ignored and it is not to be hopefully condoned by the international games so the usual is very much in the focus of the international attention the human rights council based in january has established a special commission of inquiry and it is mandated to deal with all human race wally actions in libya and we can cater eating as a rational going caper rating with this commission and as other countries we are providing some information which we have on the facts or suspected human rights
violations definitely the reason to a national criminal court and it has been mandated to deal with the situation in libya by the un security council it was aleutian until seventy so it is also to please all we know that the libyan the newly been authorities have pledged to come back to sri investigation and certain steps have been undertaken towards this. by the libyan authorities which we welcome and we hope that this particular inquiry will be carried out in an impartial professional way. you know that quite recently this issue has been discussed in the u.n. security council. upon the initiative of russia and unfortunately western countries members of the security council the i'm not in the mood. to discuss the usual responsibility for me for the for the civilian casualties which have resulted from something but
a number of other members of the security council very much support our position all whaley's all transgressions winter meshal humanitarian law committed in libya to be thoroughly investigated and those responsible to be brought to justice what about syria how do you assess the work of the monitors of the arab league there. any closer to bringing the country to consideration as you know we do very much support the peace initiative by the league of arab states. if you're several components. it is there was a very important elements dealing with the prevention of international international interference in the libyan i'm sorry in the syrian affairs. also another element is we need to. stop the violence anyway let's see. whatever what you have come from might be. another element definitely
use. the need for. the political battle in syria we have was going on with you are submitted was critical for you for your the security council. which holds for the business a seat where you are welcome so we are in it because it's reviewed walking through the violence unfortunately violence has come up from the from the. from the government forces from from the army and police but. significant risk also from all sorts of. extremist elements those who try to hide behind the backs of peaceful peaceful demonstrators let's just go back to the united states president barack obama promised to close shut down guantanamo bay and he still hasn't fulfilled his promise yet he is running re-election campaign do you
think american people will forgive him for that and will he i raise the issue again if you become president again there have been sort of discussions between the administration and the congress. they have been. at least initiatives but. unfortunately the prison is still there. yes fully agree that the administration has failed to close it down there are certain internal political complexities there but the but the fact is the fact that the president continues to operate on the as far as i remember. it's one hundred seventy one prisoners are still there kept there including by the way one russian citizen and. of course in terms of international law. the the continuation of. the existence of this prison.
definitely a serious problem well in fact american prisons hold several elite leading russian citizens how is russia going to address that issue and is there still hope for those people and. also has it has been saying that there might be an asymmetrical response to. this issue so is there any chance for those people to come back home we hope so. it's not easy at all legal terms it's not easy unfortunately in political terms because of those. those cases have been politicized in the united states no doubt if you mean in the cases of mr wood and mr. will in the case of both. the. embed has not been i mean the. formal indictment has not been announced yet. so we've been obviously.
reiterating our position on this case to american colleagues in the case of. we have expressed more than once our position that we consider the. sentence too severe we consider them just in both cases unfortunately what we witnessed. transgression of international law norms of international law by the united states authorities. russian citizens who have been basically kidnapped in the territories or third country transported to the to the united states without and you know if you have the russian authorities this is just another way listen it's a very least we consular convention which exist between our countries and we are adamantly against. extraterritorial implementation of national laws and that's what unfortunately we you know what the practice is where all this procedure is being
practiced by the united states that are different to many but there are certain legal instruments we have to be used to. convince from. the council of europe convention which was adopted in maine to make it three. provides for some opportunities to achieve this goal. as a looking into this definitely we as diplomats we continue to. stress at this point to the to the americans you know very very clear we thank you very much we thank you very much thank you. this is our time. to reclaim the american dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth
that out of many we don't want that war we breathe the we hope. to me the american dream is to live in peace and prosperity and freedom and a government under socialism is not a government a free. man. you . have very motivated out cross the country who are activists who are willing to fight for what they think is right for themselves but the fact is already we're bridge and. we are counting. properly drowning and i think it's spread by it's cutting off our. it's making the marker see. all but impossible.
