1:02 am
chemical weapons facilities that he could stand off as the details. we saw petrified children. we listened to the righteous indignation very terrible regime we read a scrupulous investigation into what happened by the un chemical weapons watchdog the o.p.c. w. report was meant to pose an indisputable and to speculations over what happened in duma in syria in spring 2018 except that it really. last week a group of activists published an expert's findings which were apparently sent to the o p c w but for one reason or another were not included in the report the 16 newly revealed pages challenges the bag bone of the official conclusions.

after passing through the ceiling in impacting the floor at lower speed the cylinder continued in altered trajectory until reaching the position in which it was found. observations of the scene of the 2 locations suggest that there is a higher probability that both cylinders were money placed at those $2.00 locations rather than being delivered from aircraft the engineering teams account is well structured it includes pictures from the site of the incident blueprints and images of the test cases studied to deliver their verdict it's unlikely the project tile fell from above which would in that case mean one thing the assad controlled air force had nothing to do with it and while the sky was dominated by the government of the ground at that time was in control of the insurgents so the question is now
1:04 am
who else could have placed the cylinder on that bed now the revelation. had the o.p.c. w. concerned except not the substance of it but the fact that someone in their ranks when grow and exposed something they tried to bury as deep and far away from the public eye as possible now we talked to peter robinson who was among those activists who published the assessment the bottom line this is the documents have been passed to us which clearly shows that there has been an investigation carried out from within you don't you an investigation which is not found its worry alternately into the fire who needs your best to give you no p c w and how it has been operating because it is the case that this organization has been subjected to political pressure and that has led to. their investigations and that
1:05 am
is an incredibly serious matter. but this engine airing analysis is not the 1st blow to the official version of what happened in duma now this video purported to show the harrowing aftermath of the chemical attack resonated across the airwaves and was hyped by many channels horrific images of syrian children fighting for brownfield and suffocating in their homes the editor emergency shelter with foam in their mouths disturbing reports of a chemical weapons attack chemical attack carried out by the acid regime except later people in the video said they had no recollection of a chemical attack some people barged into the hospital hosed people with water instigated panic and vanished even a producer with the b.b.c. a broadcaster that gave major airtime to the clip said he believed the hospital
1:06 am
video was staged. after almost 6 months of investigations i can prove without a doubt that the duma hospital scene was staged no fatalities occurred in the hospital. in 20 teen the allowed us to voices on the world stage were quick to deliver their verdict and punishment these are not the actions of a man. they are crimes of a monster instead the nations of britain france and the united states of america have martial their righteous power against barbarism and brutality. but with this new information it's not that obvious anymore and although it's speak the interest of the politically engaged classes there's a deafening silence from the great and good the entire body of evidence for that
1:07 am
particular attack is questionable the o.p.c. w. would. or is designed to lay blame on this particular party or that particular party obviously they are going to be abused by elements on the ground because they know that with russian and syrian air planes in the air and there they have nowhere to go or they would desperately need some help by american planes were british planes so they could fabricate everything or anything and the interesting part is that the united states and and its allies weren't even wait for the investigation to take place whenever there is a hint of something they would use to me to go and bomb. changed we don't know it really depends if you ask me plus what do you make of the nie report but it is a high possibility i really doubt it. the developing story later today we think

how did this amazing turnaround happen it all began back in 2017 with a visit from trump's then advisor when mr munder fought met with president of ecuador to discuss the china development fund the president raised with most of the money for his desire to remove from ecuador's embassy it's unclear of posts. talks on assad's came to any conclusion but later that year they could all kicked off a whole raft of other negotiations including an i.m.f. bailout then in march last year ecuador cut the whistle blower's internet access citing his posting of messages which interfered with other states or risk that could always relationship with other countries thankfully assad has messages didn't jeopardize relations with the united states and a few months later u.s. vice president mike pence arrived in quito to discuss a jackpot of funding that was heading ecuador's way today i'm pleased to announce
1:11 am
that the united states will support that effort to root out corruption nearly want to $1000000.00 to support your efforts. to end corruption and strengthen civil society ready and that was only the start of the cash bonanza could or finally had a $4000000000.00 loan from the i.m.f. approved and later military tries with the us were restored a correlation isn't causation but a patent does seem to present the kind of getting no move through moves united states approves of your conclusion is that illuminated it's in julian assange and here's here's the line he seems that way it seems there can be a fine line between love and hate and it may be that line was drawn in there could or an embassy in london. and all kids there next a freelance journalist in the us is coming under increased police pressure to disclose the identity of
1:12 am
a whistleblower source is house and office were raided earlier this month in connection to the publishing of a confidential police report he spoke to us about the incident. came to my house we did not know arc they started to pry my door open they used. to try to break the lock i got up and i asked them if they had a warrant and they said yes and i all. on the door and let them in the immediately handcuffed me spent the next 3 hours searching my house and taking over 55 different items from my home they discovered that i had an office so they got a 2nd search warrants and took me to my office and did the 2nd search warrant there and at that time and since then i have not revealed my source nor will i the internal report leaked to brown comedy relates to a police investigation into the death of a san francisco state appointed lawyer last february the journalist sold the

1:14 am
been a q.'s then i have not been charged with any crime we discussed the implications of this case with another journalist analysts are. it's not good it's it's very good very dangerous it's very disturbing in this case it seems to be this is the protections don't seem to be working there have been some dark periods in u.s. history in which journalists came under serious repression but i think this is certainly one of the worst cases in recent decades journalists and also an anyone concerned with free speech to protest the police action in this case to be as strongly as they can. we have to see what the outcome is but it certainly is possible that the atmosphere is growing is darkening that freedoms are contracting america's is a very bad state these days. well still to come a small included corruption scandal that kicks off this weekend sending shock waves through austria and beyond ramifications of that still happening just one of the
1:15 am
stories like that for you when we come back after the break. what politicians to do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow i want to. let you go right to the press this is like the full screen for people. interested
1:16 am
in the walk. again folks watching this morning every day is going good so far next with fears about being of a foreign meddling in the upcoming european elections there might be some news to put your mind at rest some good news at last belgium state security services there was no evidence of a large scale russian influence campaign ahead of the polls that's according to a belgian daily newspaper shallow dubin ski takes up the story. when you hear russia being mentioned in the same sentence as an election where does your mind all
1:17 am
to magically go russian actors continue to try to disrupt meddle infiltrate the u.s. political debate of the elections themselves russia's interfering they're continuing to interfere russia has been mentioned as the likely source of this interference in terms russians and other nation states absolutely are attempting to manipulate us yeah i thought so but how much attention have really been paying ahead of this week's european parliamentary elections there was a long bells have been deafening with suggestions that russia is trying to muscle its way in and influence the vote yet the wood on the streets in belgium is that the so-called russian trolls actually haven't lifted a finger never say never but currently there appears to be no russian shows active in the electoral campaign i mean with just days to go you'd think that they'd be all over this ok belgium is a small country but it's also a strategic one it's at the heart of europe and the european union as well as home
1:18 am
to nato headquarters so how about the rest of the e.u. well according to one expert there's also no evidence that russia has been meddling elsewhere. it stretching the russian internet. that was a dream omen for russia to question our constitutional state which in of european states to is pretty quiet in the room so european elections what's interesting is that it seems that whenever there's a major showcase of democracy in the western world even takes place fingers are already pointing towards possible russian interference take breaks that according to some there is absolutely no chance that british citizens in their right mind wanted to leave the e.u. and those that voted to break that some 17400000 people were swayed by you. you guessed it russian this information yet according to the then foreign secretary the
1:19 am
evidence to support meddling amounted to. the. evidence that the ninety's he notices. and what about germany in the lead up to the 2017 elections tongues well why king that it was a right for the picking and russia would be front and center there were no major attacks before and during the german bundestag elections we couldn't find any major keys at all so when it emerged that they wasn't a brightness to be found there either the real mystery developed into a why not. interesting enough there is no doubt that this is the most important narrative. especially united states that. are spreading throughout the new concern in the world of russia seems like they are conspiracy. theory isn't just
1:20 am
a way to. change and to change issues of the next plane send it to. others to make young voters away need any kind of war just make. a invasion to other questions rather than to the priorities economic or are you using any social or are you are so i think that nowadays there had never been a struggle. so called russia interference is not the only threat could possibly face before the elections german chancellor angela merkel has expressed a concern over the rise of populism which she says will use any possible means to gain power including corruption and bribes. now that we haven't to deal with populist movements that in many areas a contemptuous of this values who want to destroy the europe our will values we have to stand up to this decisively what fails under this is that minorities are not protected sent basic human rights are called into question and that corruption
