despite police pressure a us journalist to protect his soul he's already had his home an office raided for publishing a confidential police report. he started to cry in my door open they used. to try to break the law the immediately. the next 3 hours searching my house. with european elections just days away now voting starts 23rd belgium state security services there was no evidence of a large scale russian influence something that had been drummed up in the western media is a very real threat. just to me day or moscow for a good afternoon for me kevin oh and then thanks for tuning to out international for this half hour world news update. we start in syria where the government is
5:02 am
denying the rebel reports that chemical weapons were used in a recent attack in the taqiyya province damascus has branded the report says media fabrication and says it will not stop the fighting terrorism at the same time a leaked document is cast doubt on the global chemical weapons watchdogs report on the chemical attack in the city of duma last year but then on the basis of the report the u.s. u.k. and france launched more than 100 missiles against what they say were syrian chemical weapons facilities the o.p.c. w is yet to respond to a request for comment on that goes down off as the background. 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
5:03 am
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 you do is found. observations of the scene of the 2 locations suggest that there is
5:04 am
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 side 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 who else could have placed the cylinder on that bed now the revelation. at 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
5:05 am
activists who published the assessment the bottom line this is the document has been passed to us as i said before we've had we have confirmation from multiple sources which clearly shows that there has been an investigation carried out from within your. own investigation which is not found its way to muttley into the fire do not report the best. 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 have led to distortion their investigations then that 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
5:06 am
chemical attack resonated across the airwaves and was hyped by many channels horrific images of syrian children grandchildren suffocating in their homes the editor emergency shelter many with foam in their mouths are stirring reports of a chemical weapons attack chemical attack carried out by the asset 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 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
5:07 am
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 speak the interest of the politically engaged classes in light of the new evidence from our no p c w engineers report i hope the guardian newspaper will have the good grace to print among reserved apologies for their scurrilous ad hominem attack on me after i denounce the white house potently concocted story for what it was when they have just discovered to major piece of the puzzle explaining how seemingly
5:08 am
independent international organizations how deceive us into consent into wars and regime change interventionism around the world there's a deafening silence from the great and good the entire body of evidence for that 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 syrian air. planes in the air and there they have nowhere to go or they would desperately need some help by american planes where british planes so they could probably get everything or anything and the interesting part is that the united states and and its allies weren't even at a wait for investigation to take place whenever there is a hint of something they would just immediately go and bomb move
5:09 am
a change the narrative we don't know it really depends if you ask me the question on what the n.p.c. doesn't make of the report but. really a high possibility. prosecutors in sweden. know a rest warrant for the wiki leaks founder julian assange is new in the last couple of hours it comes just a week after they decided to reopen the sexual assault case against him meantime everything from his new 7 years in the embassy in london is said to be 100 over to u.s. prosecutors. this. moment probably bring us up to speed on what. was supposed over the coming hours as the. possessions of the cross. made the 1st step towards an official extradition request for julian assange and then out that they'd be reopening that investigation into allegations of sexual
5:10 am
assault dating back to 2010 they announced last week so this isn't that much of a surprise that now there is already a u.s. extradition request hanging over julian assange and it now appears that the only person who can make the decision in terms of which of these extradition requests takes legal precedence secretary so it will be a political decision that needs to be made here in the u.k. in relation to where julian assange. next to. the accusations relating to what took place in sweden and has always said they want to clear his name now i'm outside the ecuadorian embassy in london again i didn't think i'd be back here but. of course he isn't here he's serving out a 50 week prison sentence in belmarsh prison but his stuff is still here he spent 7 years inside the embassy he may have accumulated quite a few things and today there is possessions all set to be collected by
5:11 am
ecuadorian officials 2 policemen it's said to be from quito have traveled to london . i think we've got somebody walking towards the embassy right now actually just take a look at what's happening we just have police officers turning up walking up here and so it seemed like it was a precursor to something taking place that appears to be an ecuadorian official somebody who works in the embassy but you can see it on just supporters already very vocal and protesting what is about to take place now the you can see there somebody making their way inside and. yet well this is clearly some opposition from the supporters saying that ecuador shouldn't be handing songes personal items over to u.s. prosecutors now according to wiki leaks neither julian assange songes legal team nor u.n.
5:12 am
representatives have been allowed to witness what is taking place here today and the wiki leaks editor kristen crossed and has said that this active handing over his possessions is illegal take a listen to what he had to say. on monday before a popular show at the embassy a fix in london for their masters in washington the transport minister ration. to behave like it's the wild west. right now u.s. prosperities are supposed to sort of up until the mid june to expand the charges against julian assange and the at the moment the extradition request from the u.k. says that sound is wanted in the u.s. for conspiracy to hack in government computer but there's obviously concern from the wiki leaks team that that could become a more serious charge after they've trolled through all of us on just stuff now we are waiting on getting that mum is that there is
5:13 am
a mansion taking place and we've got our eyes on both entrances because there's a front entrance to the embassy but there's also a side entrance which we have been monitoring and see if i can. over and show us the ecuadorian path this car which is normally hard outside the embassy is actually parked at the bottom of the. dead end street here now where there is a side exit from the embassy say we are keeping our eyes firmly on both doors to see what happens next that clearly was going to ask because all the media around the from the records we were there 1st only only people there when sons was dragged out of there but i was saying he was manning the back entrance the side entrance so not in there at the moment i guess we may see some vans coming up later probably but soon as there's any action there please please come back to us we'll bring our viewers all the latest all right and we've now gone through a tight shot on the front that will show you the live so as i could all continues to divorce itself from it looks like it's keen to rekindle its friendship with the
5:14 am
united states both countries have signed a new agreement which will bring them close on a number of economic and defense issues let's talk about that now. we will do is look in which we can. this memorandum is an additional demonstration of the activation of accruals relations with united states last year which last year reached its highest and most important point. during the whole kit is takes a closer look at how scientists are in relationship with ecuador may have played right into the hands of the u.s. . they used to be enemies but became be a fair face in just one year ecuador and the united states from kicking out military personnel and even a u.s. ambassador to new partnership and funding how can this be at least part of the answer julian assad's you see the whistleblower was granted asylum at the ecuadorian embassy in london under former president rafael career but the new
5:15 am
president doesn't share that love for leaks but the patients of ecuador has its limits we are a tolerant and calm people but not stupid we revoke the asylum in this world brat and got rid of a thorn in our side. and now a new era of friendship between ecuador and the us has been an else there's no more you being. the new iraq. between. good or new chapter new benefits help with social development and education with natural disaster response and the environment with no costs attached all on the u.s. tab so 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 morin of ecuador to discuss the china development fund the president rose with the money for his desire to remove juvenile sons from ecuador's embassy it's unclear if those
5:16 am
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 whistleblower'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 that the. support that effort to root out corruption we want to have $1000000.00 to support your efforts. to end corruption and strengthen civil society in ecuador and that was only the start of the cash but ecuador finally had a $4000000000.00 loan from the i.m.f. approved and later military tries with the us work restored
5:17 am
a correlation isn't causation but a patent does seem to present the kind of good you know move flown lucy united states approves of your conclusion is that a little traded it's entirely understand is. as mine is. it seems there can be a fine line between love and hate and it may be that line was drawn and it could all rain embassy in london. we're talking of whistle blowers know the story after the break we hear from a freelance journalist in the u.s. under pressure to disclose a whistleblower source that's ahead. what
5:18 am
politicians do something to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. or somehow want to. have to go right to be close it's like the korean people. interested in the logs of. course it.
5:19 am
is actually 90 minutes past midday moscow time either good afternoon from us now next story with fears about being of a foreign meddling in the upcoming european elections it may be some news to put your mind at rest if it wasn't at rest belgium's state security services there was no evidence of a large scale russian influence campaign ad of those polls according to a belgian daily newspaper shouted dubin ski picks up the story for us today. when you hear russia being mentioned in the same sentence as an election where does your mind. russian actors continue to try to disrupt metal infiltrate the u.s. political debate of the elections themselves russia is interfering they're continuing to interfere russia has been mentioned as the likely source of this interference in terms of russians and other nation states absolutely are attempting to manipulate us yeah i thought so but how much attention has really been paying
5:20 am
ahead of this week's european parliamentary elections those along 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 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 for russia to question our constitutional state which in of european states
5:21 am
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. those that some 17400000 people were swayed by you guessed it. russian this information yet according to the then foreign secretary the evidence to support meddling amounted to die happy. and what about germany in the lead up to the 2017 elections tongues well why king that it was a right for the picking on russia would be front and center there were no major
5:22 am
attacks before and during the german bundestag elections we couldn't find any major keys at all so when it emerged that there wasn't a bright face to be found there either the real mystery developed into why not. interesting enough there is no doubt that this is the most important. state especially united states the force in the west. are spread in the new concern in the world of russia seems like they are. in only as a way to. change and to change issues on the next plane send it to. others to make a new young voters away needs any kind of well just make. a invasion to other questions rather than to priorities economic are using any social or you are so i think that now we're days ahead in the struggle. a

freelance journalist in the us is coming under increased police pressure to disclose the identity of a whistleblower a source who found his house in office for raided earlier this month in connection to the publishing of a confidential police report 1st off he spoke to us about what happened in this incident. the police came to my house they did not knock they started to pry my door open they used a swag hammer to try to break the lock i got up and i asked them if they had a warrant and they said yes and i opened the door and let them in they immediately handcuffed me it's spent the next 3 hours searching my house and taking over 55 different i. adams 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
5:24 am
and at that time and since then i have not revealed my source nor will i so that's what is in a moment of this internal report late brian come monday relates to a police investigation into the death of a san francisco state appointed lawyer last february the journalist sold on details of that report to 3 separate television stations and then further other media outlets were also able to obtain the document independently to authorities confiscated a number of items from the journalist including notebooks and computer is under california law although the crucial thing is journals cannot be forced to access to disclose their confidential sources or to surrender unpublished materials so the search on brian comedy's house is being criticized therefore by press freedom organizations they say it's a violation of the law and rights of industry professionals but all that said the police maintain the raid was lawful they say it was warranted is brian comedy again about that right now i cannot do my work because of the equipment
5:25 am
replay confirming they took everything from my home they took my tablet they took my cell phones my computers normally when there is an investigation you don't receive your property back until the investigation is over that could literally be years from now i have not been arrested i have not been a cuse then i have not been charged with any crime so we discussed the implications of this case with another journalist journalist. it's not good it's it's very did very dangerous it's very disturbing in this case it seems to be this is the protections don't seem to be working they 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 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
