12:01 pm
politicians across the european. party. coming from our international news center in moscow this is a warm welcome to the program my names you know o'neill our top story swedish prosecutors have requested an arrest warrant for wiki leaks founder julian assange after they reopened a rape case against him last week the ecuadorian embassy in london meanwhile has started over the whistleblowers positions to u.s. authorities who are also seeking a songes extradition breaking down the latest developments on this quite a few years. today is the start of these sort of formal proceedings whereby ecuador hands over someone just personal possessions in order for us prosecutors to
12:02 pm
get their hands on them it's expected that there's 2 police officers and a prosecutor from that i can then be going through his things presuming is accumulated quite a few possessions and 70 is holed up inside and according to wiki leaks julian assange nor his legal team nor u.n. representatives have been allowed to be for this process in the wiki leaks that it's a question of frost's and has said that what's happening today is illegal on monday before. the embassy officials in london for their masters in washington the transport minister ration is. to behave like it's the wild west so u.s. authorities have until mid june to potentially expand the charges against a songe at the moment his extradition request from the u.s. says that he's wanted for conspiracy to hack and government computer but there's concern from wiki leaks that once the u.s. prosecutors get their hands on someone just computer hard drives that charge could
12:03 pm
be handed out and made much more serious now julian assange just supporters have been head you can see they're still outside the embassy they've been heckling people that go in and out there's been a few police officers they are very unhappy with what's happening and we spoke to a few of them it's a disgrace that the british government should be attempting to persecute you really and he's done nothing but the truth is he had to be a witness. of the. travesty of justice. things belong to julian assange because of government and the mission. that we were just wondering if the u.k. has reached. the intent to commit a crime. so you can take a look there's police officers coming and going all day as we're watching both entrances there's a main entrance to the embassy but there's also
12:04 pm
a back exit which there's no traffic now so i can show you but there's a police van there and a police officer walking past a side exit i spoke to the 4 month old the ecuadorian consul here in london who said he was actually dismissed by the new leadership when lenin miranda came to power because of his support for julian a son. illegally these abuses what is happening is basically stealing things from a person who cannot defend himself well the form ali just talked to today. not obliged to. take the things straight away today. today. by the front door. basically way to come in. as for the money shot that picture potentially about salinger's computer being
12:05 pm
taken out and handed over to u.s. prost prosecutors are just taken out well according to the former console that i spoke to that he says that after artie's video agency court my son is being dragged out of here against his will last month the authorities the ecuadorian officials inside are going to make it their priority to try in a raid the cameras this time around what is happening there does seem pretty important to the overall case because a long time supporter of julian assange that we spoke to says the search may come as a blow to the whistleblowers legal. and utterly 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 are 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 he's had 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 that
12:06 pm
julian spent in the embassy war very hard on him he's an incredibly resilient person by i did see the cost exerted on him i don't think that you should have served any time at all for his enormous achievements in reinventing journalism and. inspiring not just chelsea manning but all of the whistleblowers we've so show since you've been in a measurable benefit to the world who should be extremely grateful to julian what has happened to him is a travesty. as we mentioned prosecutors in sweden have requested an arrest warrant for the wiki leaks founder if granted it would be the 1st step to have extradited from the u.k. where he's currently serving a 50 week prison sentence for skipping bill back in 22 last week stockholm decided to reopen the rape case against him after it has been previously dropped 27.
12:07 pm
ok moving on to more world news this hour the syrian government is denying rebel reports that chemical weapons were used in the recent attack in the western coast of the tukey a province the reports came as this syrian army advances retaking main highways untrained groups around the rebel held province of it the government branded the reports as media fabrication insisting that syria has never used chemical weapons before and will not use them alone having done it will not stop however in this battle against terrorism. a few days ago a leaked document raised questions about the global chemical weapons watchdog was reported on last year's chemical attack in the city of duma just 10 kilometers from the capital back then blaming assad's forces the u.s. britain and france carried out our strikes against syrian government facilities
12:08 pm
course at the home of scott the barcode. we saw petrified children. i listened to the righteous indignation very terrible regime we read a scrupulous investigation into what happened by the u.n. chemical weapons watchdog the your p c w report was meant to poison indisputable and speculations over what happened in dumas in syria in spring 2018 except did it really. the 16 newly revealed pages challenge of 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.
12:09 pm
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
12:10 pm
public eye as possible the bottom line and the documents have been passed to us as i said before we've had we have confirmation from multiple sources which clearly shows that they are being investigated and carried out from within you don't you an investigation which is not found worry oh absolutely into the fire and do my. best to get into your p.c. w. and how it has been authorized to begin even. its organization has been subjected to political pressure and that have led to distortion their investigations and that is an incredibly serious matter. but this engineering 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
12:11 pm
attack resonated across the airwaves and was hyped by many channels 100 think images of syrian children grandchildren suffocating in their homes the editor emergency 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 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
12:12 pm
voices on the world stage were quick to deliver their verdict and punishment these are not the actions of a man. they are crying 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 apology for their scurrilous ad hominem attack on me after i denounce the white house potently concocted story for what it was we may have just discovered to major piece of the puzzle explaining how seemingly
12:13 pm
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 we have 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 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 wait for investigation to take place whenever there is a hint of something they would just immediately go and bomb movie they change the
12:14 pm
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. the possibility i've read that. with european elections just days away politicians across the bloc been voicing concern over the dramatic surge in support for euro skeptic voices the fresh wave of condemnation of the nationalists rund comes following the collapse of the austrian government over a corruption scandal peter all over reports on what's been a few days. 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 beat the video gate what we have seen is angle america and others come out and say that what this shows what the sting operation shows is that well you can't trust the populists the far right there's
12:15 pm
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 we haven't to deal with populist movements that in many areas a contemptuous of this values who want to destroy the euro for all values it has long been known to try to win populist destabilize our press freedom and democracy far right populists are the enemies of freedom strikers is only the 1st domino to fall getting ready for salvage any le pen or ban and other extreme right wing puppets of moscow's leash but 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 that. resigned as vice chancellor held a joint rally in milan in which the idea was supposed to be getting together all of the anti establishment organizations and political parties across europe under one
12:16 pm
banner if we look at the projected results for the european elections that 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 the another senior member of his party both been 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. besides if. you're reading he's a liar. and he's a hero. who you've 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
12:17 pm
yes it was responsible yes it was a mistake but at the same time it was a victim of a targeted political attack that he used illegal means well the timing of this sting of this hit piece however you want to call it well it coincides in the lead up to these european 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 a major parser a poor terminal was brought to a standstill on sunday those are 2 reports after the very. those who don't are supporting cast but they have they don't care about the mere they don't kill for this the beneath you know from libya. if you think it is about
12:18 pm
their own agendas. and so we might be bugged here for a long time can be really a civil war that continues for 4 months time. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to us on the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. all of the years i've talked to you about the insects. of the economy and where oh humans are becoming like the colony of insects. and that's on the table by this 5 d.n.a. surveillance pretty cool right. 1000
12:19 pm

12:21 pm
migration bills last year which haven't gone down very well and we heard at the engines 2018 these are official figures in front that the the number of deportations of illegal aliens who fronts had actually increased by 20 percent so that has really riled people up and that's one of the reasons why the so called black press rochelle to go. yesterday. all right moving on now google has severed its business ties with the chinese tech titan way after the world's 2nd largest smartphone maker was placed on a u.s. blacklist the potentially crushing move drew the following response from the embattled company. while way is evaluating the possible impact of this u.s. government action on consumers while we will continue to provide security updates and after seal services to all existing while weigh in on our smartphone and tablet products covering those have been sold or are still in stock globally will continue
12:22 pm
to build a safe and sustainable software eco system in order to provide the best experience for all users globally so this is what we know google's decision will severely restrict all ways access to the m droid operating system mean it can only use the public version it also suspends the supply of hardware software on technical services to the chinese for reports are suggesting that the world's leading chip makers are going to cut their ties with while way as well well this all comes after the united states other while away on 70 affiliated firms to the so-called entity list on wednesday it bans american companies from trading with those firms without prior u.s. government approval the measure marks a further escalation in the trade war between beijing and washington. let's go live now to the stunt part teletech birds and journalist live on the program good
12:23 pm
to have you sir how damaging do you think this is going to be for a way. it depends very much on what really happened now or go away is 200000000 devices a year in china are doing are not using google services because google is forbidden in china become of course the law of their own system but you can even try to sell the system all over the world the question is 1st what happened with the people that already use it for me in europe for instance and the 2nd thing the most important from my point of views if this is just an escalation in cold war technological cold war between the united states and china yeah big escalation of both those points one aspect that's quite interesting is is that i believe while where they're attempting to develop
12:24 pm
a new operating system if that's the case and they are making progress with it how might that mitigate the damage of this. well on all around it. if someone in the world can create a new. system and that can be a good time to really go without a voice of course china industry they have the resources they have the market they can create an alternative system that can expand going to the problem it's what happens with loopholes people who have already been forms. will gradually form google services a little thing going on g. mail for instance. it's not only. the divides of not only new parade insisting that because the services who are being impacted build the whole industry in a breeze on 2 or 3 key. development but you can buy google which are under it open
12:25 pm
it it says them but also. you must use google play in order to put something inside of your form so it's they can do it in a long drawn in short run. major problem or a poor picture in this company major problem major money as well and how does this affect beijing then if we open it up do you think china will respond. well probably they will challenge that legally the courts it is not easy to. understand what will happen if this is the case and they go to the courts even of the united states challenging these this issue and based on their problems their crude in to the consumer not to the american consumers because as you know it's not allowed to sell devices in the u.s. but the european consumer so that consumers will see what happened this is the case but the problem immobile learned the question goes for their it's at the end the
12:26 pm
big bottle it's about 5 g. and new. routers all these infrastructure all for the internet the united states is seen christal be fear a friend of china can use this infrastructure or. a tool for spying that's a tool for controlling even. some aspects of western life. again but i think that whether the united states is trying to do is ok you europeans accepting that there will be another company and we will put pressure on deals so you will think again what you do with the 5 g.m. it's because some don't us come can be in the near future it can be a very crucial point in their trust in our well for every country if a massive escalation there the chapter between the the trade war between us and
12:27 pm

12:28 pm
the a. child's seemed wrong all right all were all just all. to me the world is yet to shape out just they become educated and in gain from it because betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. up. what politicians do such as needing. to put themselves on the line they did accept the reject. so when you want to be president or injury. or somehow want to. have to go right to beatrice to see what the 43 in the morning can't be good that. i'm interested always in the waters in the holidays. there
