ecuadorian embassy in london is to be handed to us prosecutors today i didn't include an electronic equipment legal papers even medical records the ecuadorian government agreed to turn over any documents and materials used by during that time to both british and u.s. authorities as we say coleman who is the kids a longtime friend as well of julian assange told us search may come as a blow to the whistleblowers legal case. disgraceful way for an independent sovereign nation to behave but that's what they're doing i don't know exactly what they want to find but they're going to get an awful lot they're going to get. judy and legal notes from the legal meetings what should have been private legal meetings that is held in the embassy obviously i think that's of great concern to those who are preparing to fight is actually in case here i think that the 7 years
8:03 am
that julian spent in the embassy of war very hard on him he's an incredibly resilient person by did see the cost exerted on him i don't think the children should have served any time at all for his enormous achievements in reinventing journalism. inspiring not just chelsea manning that's one of the whistleblowers we show since you've been in a measurable benefit to the world you should be extremely grateful to julian what has happened to him is a travesty. for prosecutors in sweden have requested the arrest warrant for wiki leaks founder julian assange if granted it would be the 1st step to have him extradited from the u.k. where he's currently serving a 15 week prison sentence for skipping field back in 2012 last week to be decided to reopen a rape case against him in stockholm after it had been previously dropped in 27

teen who let's go live now to london were correspondent who has been standing by for quite some time outside the ecuadorian embassy as we expand though a bit earlier probably we were awaiting his belongings computers all the records over those so many years in the embassy to be taken out and given to u.s. prosecutors what do we know at this stage. well it seems to be quite a covert operation certainly we have kept our eyes. embassy's back door just behind me where the police truck is and on the front door where students will assign just supporters all gathered as well as a handful of of the media who are waiting but at the moment no sign as yet now julian assange himself obviously isn't here but his things are still thought to be up until today busy inside the embassy his legal team of said that they haven't
8:05 am
had any access to a songes personal belongings not ever since julian assange was dragged out of here against his will when the relationship between him and the ecuadorian authorities deteriorated and his asylum was revoked and the ecuadorians invited british police inside the embassy to arrest. and today it was expected that 2 ecuadorian officials are presumably policeman from quito was supposed to come into the embassy in order to remove the songes things and hand them over to u.s. prosecutors now computers and hard drives probably being the most important items that they're going to be looking for but wiki leaks has said that. truck going past is moving aside. wiki leaks has said that neither songes lawyers north on himself nor u.n. representatives have been allowed access or to write to the president. of
8:06 am
the feeding of his things being handed over to him and according to the way he edits president wrapped that is completely legal take a listen to what he had to say. on monday. before. the. in london for the masters in washington the troubled me straight. to behave like it's the wild west. so u.s. authorities have until june to potentially expand the charge against julian assange at the moment he faces an extradition request for conspiracy to hack a government computer but the wiki leaks team obviously concerned that that could be made much more serious off to the u.s. prosecutors get their hands and trawl through all of this on his personal possessions and go through his computers and hard drives now we have been watching what's going on here quite intently as i said keeping an eye on this backdoor
8:07 am
police simpson coming to and from there getting lots of questions his supporters there heckling anyone who does go inside there very unhappy that the door is handing over just things to the americans and yet we're still keeping an eye on the front door and trying to catch a glimpse. yes thanks very much for doing so we said before probably didn't we after being holed up for so long things do seem to be caressing. we've been keeping qusai right throughout the day with ali there in. ecuador continues to divorce itself from julian astonished the country appears keen to rekindle its friendship with the united states seemingly across the board. we will do. this memorandum is an additional
8:08 am
demonstration of the activation of acquittals relations with the united states which last year reached its highest and most important point. 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 us ambassador to new partnership and funding how can this be at least part of the arts judean assad's you see the whistleblower was granted asylum at the ecuadorian embassy in london and the former president rafael career but the new president doesn't share that love for leaks. patients event could or has its limits we are a tolerant and calm people but not stupid we've revoked the asylum of the spoiled 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. your 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. from ecuador's embassy it's unclear if those 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.

fires 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 united states will support that effort to root out corruption we want to have 1000000 dollars 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 a correlation isn't causation but a patent does seem to present the kind of good or no move flown lucy united states approves of it your conclusion is that illegal initiated it since julian assange and his. line use it seems that it seems that can be a fine line between love and hate maybe that line was drawn in could all in embassy in london. let's move to another headline stories this hour the syrian government
8:11 am
denied rebel reports that chemical weapons were used in a recent attack in lattakia province damascus has branded the reports media fabrication and ses it will not stop in its battle against terrorism. well at the same time a leaked document has cast dots on the global chemical weapons watchdogs report on a chemical attack in the city of doom last year a lot of headlines written about that one box 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 a comment or 2 easy enough though the background. we saw petrified children. listened to the righteous indignation very terrible regime we read
8:12 am
a scrupulous investigation into what happened by the un chemical weapons watchdog the o.p.c. w reports was meant to poison indisputable and to speculations over what happened in duma in syria in spring 2018 except did 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 60 newly revealed pages challenges the bag bone of the official conclusions. after passing through the ceiling and impacting the floor at lower speed the cylinder continued in altered trajectory until reaching the position in which you do is found.
8:13 am
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 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
8:14 am
public eye as possible now see talk to peter robinson who was among those 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 w. an investigation which is not found is widely oatley into the fire do not report the investigation into the o.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 distort. their investigation then that is me read to the serious mass. but this engineering analysis is not the 1st blow to the official version of what
8:15 am
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 100 think images of syrian children grandchildren suffocating in their homes and it of urgency shelter many 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 time 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
8:16 am
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 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 and then reserved apology for their scurrilous ad hominem attack on me after i denounce the white house potently concocted story for what it was when
8:17 am
they have just discovered the major piece of the puzzle explaining how seemingly 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 they would desperately need some help by american planes where 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 at a wait for investigation to take place whenever there is
8:18 am
a hint of something they would just immediately go and bomb move a change that if we don't you know it really depends if you ask me plus what the interests of the makeup of people but it is a really high possibility i really doubt it. merkel warns of the rise of the right in europe we go through the. 90 seconds. all the years i've talked to you about the insects. of the economy where humans are becoming like the colony of insects. and that's on the table by this 5 year old surveillance pretty cool right. join
8:19 am
me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then. those who. don't care about the. own agendas. and so we might hear for a long time to be really a civil war that continues for 4 months time. a look at the german chancellor angela merkel has expressed concern over the rise
8:20 am
of populist forces which she say's will use any possible means to gain power including corruption bribes merkel statement refers to the latest scandal in austria where the feist chancellor has resigned after becoming embroiled in a corruption scandal peter over told me more. just a bit when you say it's been quite the weekend for austrian politics the government in austria has collapsed over the weekend following on for what's being called the a b. through video or gate this video that shows the former now former vice chancellor saying certain things on camera in a beef that before the 27000 election. there's a lot of scandal involved in this and it's certainly being used by those that would like to see those parties suffer frankly when it comes to the european elections under merkel was on the campaign trail on sunday she was speaking in zagreb where she said that what the showed was that the populists the far right that they were
8:21 am
willing to take money from anywhere and it was all about corruption 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 values we have to stand up to this decisively what famous under this is that minorities are not protected at basic human rights are called into question and this corruption place rule in politics we need to conjure all of this in a decisive manner and that is what we will do well this doesn't look good for those on the right and particularly when you're looking at the likes of. italy who on saturday the same day the. resigned as vice chancellor held a joint rally in milan in which the idea was supposed to be getting together all of these star bushman organizations and political parties across europe under one banner if we look at the project projected results for the european elections that
8:22 am
are coming up $250.00 out of $751.00 seats are expected to go to those that would be described as either populist or far right. it doesn't look good though what's happened in austria the vice chancellor. mr. on the another senior member of his party both being caught on camera back in 2017 speaking to a woman who purports to be the niece of a wealthy russian investor it doesn't bode well and looks like the worst type of scandal ridden scandal videos. midis alive. when he. heard on camera there he stepped down on saturday and said that he was the victim of political assassination this is. yes it was stupid yes it was responsible
8:23 am
yes it was a mistake but at the same time it was a victim of a targeted political attack the release to illegal means so after talks with the chancellor sebastian court i made the decision to resign from the post a fighting chance for all the timing of the sting of this hit piece however you want to call it well it coincides in the lead up to the 0 pm elections in which the mainstream parties were set to lose quite sconce cigarette really still set really to lose quite considerably to those parties that have been termed populist or right wing in the past. thing all over in italy dock workers in the port of genoa have blocked a saudi cargo ship believed to be carrying military equipment for use in the yemeni conflict. jim of the she's on the scene there in p.r. channel or he's taking to the streets because of the c.d.c. pacifist tradition and should the docks in our port to load equipment that could be
8:24 am
used during the war like the one being fought in yemen where many have died and on the civilian population can be a part of this least we could do was to make this blockade and call for a day of strikes until we know those generators are for civil or military use. this morning unfortunately we had confirmation but even here in general they plan to load military equipment we call for a strike because we don't want to be accomplices of the war in yemen. the syrian shippers. excuse me has been really racking up the north miles making the rounds of ports around europe we know it was reportedly loaded with a consignment of arms in belgium but in front's activists monitor prevented taking on any cargo they accuse the saudi government of deliberately causing civilian deaths in yemen riyadh for its part denies ever intentionally targeting noncombatants in the conflict well that is just
