department called a news dangerous. i worry that they're trying to hide information that would that would maybe lead us to uncover that there are some you know corruption or or sweetheart deal in this that they don't want the american public to know the concerns around the timing of the approval it was just a little over 2 weeks of the brutal killing of saudi dissident jonas jamal khashoggi for which several high level saudi officials were blamed the u.s. had the department confirmed the transfers back in march after the 1st reports emerged but haven't responded to a request for comment statement saudi arabia claims its atomic program is strictly for civil and peaceful uses congress is also disturbed by the level of covertness that surrounded the transfers in the no time references been given by the trump of ministration neither caleb maupin pics that will detail the story for you. the fact that the trumpet ministration provided nuclear technical expertise to the saudi

monarchy has got some in congress pretty rattled the trump administration has broken this precedent they kept it secret we found out in march that they had done a number of transfers to saudi arabia it turns out that right after the show he was murdered by the saudis and they were lying about it the administration said fine here here's we'll pass nuclear technology on to you now a quick reminder the killing of the journalist sent shock waves around the world when he was killed in the country's consulate in istanbul now the brutal death apparently sent shock waves throughout the world but it wasn't enough to stop some nuclear deals now it appears that the trump team was rushing perhaps because they thought the fallout from the killing would make it more controversial at a later date and following the shoji case a bipartisan group of legislators did indeed pass a law allowing congressional oversight of any nuclear cooperation agreements with saudi arabia and tom certainly does seem eager to promote nukes how many countries have it iran is going to happen at some point we have to say you know what we're

3:09 am
concerns about freedom of the press they could have a chilling effect on the right of journalists to carry out their chops the scene might be expected in an authoritarian country but not in a democracy. both cases are based on the stories published over a year ago with the help of leaks the a.b.c.'s afghan files were published in 2017 and exposed possible war crimes by australian special forces in afghanistan based on secret defense documents then the home of anika smith as the political editor of a stray the sunday telegraph was raided in relation to a 2800 story based on secret correspondence between ministries she disclosed a government plan to expand its spying on a met a stranger in citizens and then a stray and radio host who's revealed that the government is now also investigating how he obtained unauthorized data that boats filled with refugees had tried to reach australia and fordham said the focus of the probe is on actually on him but his source about an hour after we shared the information we were told that the
3:10 am
department of home of peers will investigate this disclosure i was told by high buffet's that i'm not the target of this investigation it's about the people who were supposed to keep this stuff confidential last year australia increased penalties for leaking classified data it's now a crime for any public official to share an authorised information the country's prime minister scott morrison defended the raid saying that there are laws protecting astray as national security strategy lecturer been a recount mark spoke to us about it direct he thinks it's alarming though that the government says be more concerned with leakers than the alleged crimes it's committed. and eventually a very dedicated bus engine ossie them stopping but this very dangerous thing this generous will have to consider. in this course is whether this will soon be called las vegas the genesis in question won't necessarily go to jail the sources that they are have you saying in terms of people's lives they are very much at risk which is the agenda behind these arrests of these investigations the
3:11 am
particular release of the files has been something you know some of the dissolution thing for those in the. in the australian military a sense the revelation of this spammer also seemed to be the gross offense rather than actually seeing the s.a.'s as committing crimes the issue has been more those revealing of those crimes committed. in extra spain a major political shift in denmark where the liberal party has conceded big to the social democrats they want to retain parliament in an election dominated by climate change welfare cuts and immigration issues its leader who's had to be the country's youngest ever prime minister has declared a major shift in the country's direction now. if you have voted that denmark should have a new majority there denmark should take a new direction tonight we have

she was set for an official visit to china and really wanted her family members to be allowed in the room while she was supposed to talk to her chinese counterparts all of a sudden the trip got called off the transportation department never officially explained why that happened although a version did come up that it all could have been due to an urgent meeting with the president. someone by themselves on take the ground anyway mrs chalis family business ties with china aren't that hard to trace.

3:22 am
china mr boehner eventually went to work for a lobbying firm squire patton boggs and this company has a presence in china to say the least the most ironic case is that of donald purdy jr in his resume you'll probably find out that he's helped draft a policy paper known as the u.s. national strategy to secure cyberspace masterminded the national cyber security division and the department of homeland security while. all that to end up as the chief security officer at technologies usa ties between the us establishment in both parties are very very close to the chinese look at you're a girl off a lot of interest in the united states who will say that doing pursuing a certain policy may be bad for america as a country but we don't care about that because it's good for my company to issues divisions within the u.s.
3:23 am
policymaking now paratus up until trudeau decided to play hardball with shar china ontario and with many other countries there were no division. it was a very committed relationship with our neighbors have the advantage be having united this issue and i don't see those divisions being healed at all i see them getting march march worse. human rights lawyer is applying to sue the european union in connection with migrant deaths they argue thousands of people needlessly lost their lives to out across the mediterranean they say migrants rights were violated in numerous ways by the e.u. for example by scaling back sea rescues in 2040 and hampering the work of n.g.o.s they also slammed the decision to descend 40000 migrants back to dangerous camps in libya and to help the libyan coast guard stop migrant boats the lawyers allege certain statements made by e.u. leaders make it clear that they were aware of the risk to we spoke to them one

3:25 am
to comment on what they branded a nonexistent legal action saying only that it was a priority of the block to protect human lives lawyers though say the e.u. has failed to do that. we really hope for for a huge try in this sense something that the international criminal court doesn't known for a simple reason there's been very civil level of responsibility and we have to very clearly distinguish those who executive and those who created the objectives that triggered this execution and you cannot just you have to distinguish between people like the ministry of interior. and the commissioner if you see at most and then another lever the director frontex and then another lever the militia leaders of both but what we show is that they are all connected in a common plan which was to systematically and widespread to the. civil population
