10:04 pm
a life sentence we can leaks editor in chief says it's just not possible that he will receive a fair trial i do believe that we are going to win this with legal arguments there is no chance the julian will get a fair trial here in the u.k. or in the u.s. of course unless there's a change of reporting that people actually start speaking out we're not talking about a prosecution we're talking about a persecution julian a soldier is currently serving a 50 week prison sentence that's because he skipped bail of back in 2012 he's serving that at the high security belmarsh prison now in recent weeks there's been concern for his health he was too ill to appear to court hearing the video that was obtained by artie's rocky knees agency showing a songe inside the prison looking incredibly and thin julian assange his father visited him in prison in the medical ward where he's been receiving attention for

that weight loss songes father said that he thought his son's weight had stabilized also expressed concerns about this extradition and julian assange is father. says that if his son is extradited then this is the slippery slope for journalism its territory or actions or words against somebody is my. role to. do in. proving the reason i. work. for the us back in april julian assange was forcibly removed from the ecuadorian embassy where he'd sought asylum for around 7 years he sought that asylum back in 2012 following the fact that there were accusations of sexual assaults brought to him by
10:06 pm
individuals in sweden that were being pursued by the authorities now julian assault has always denied those allegations of sexual assault and said that they were a pretext for moving him to sweden and then to be able to be extradited directly to the usa from there now this all spans form a massive dump of classified military documents this was provided to the wiki leaks co-founder to the website by a former u.s. private chelsea manning since then the u.s. government has been pursuing julian a source for the fact that the wiki leaks co-founder on the website published those classified documents which showed alleged war crimes being committed by u.s. soldiers in iraq. the u.k. parliament has rejected a motion aimed at preventing the country from leaving the e.u. with no deal in place kate partridge reports from london. basically these are labor and tory rebels getting together for
10:07 pm
a motion to say we want the option the house of commons wants the option to rule out a no do we want the say on legislation to stop that so a vote was put forward and it came out with 309229811 votes in favor of the government what does all of this mean effectively it's about who controls brecht's it and the no deal option the opposition was saying effectively the new leader that came in the new leader of the tory party de facto the new prime minister could then effectively say even though we're not going to go through parliament i'm going to take the u.k. out of the asean when i have the power to do that so great for whomever the new leader is coming in and at the moment the current favorite is boris johnson he's always said that he wanted to keep a no deal option on the table as it was a vital renegotiating tool he felt that he had to go back and renegotiate another withdrawal deal with the new he wanted to be able to say to them we can say that we're going to drop out if we don't have a deal but in the meantime the you have said well we don't have an appetite to
10:08 pm
renegotiate anyway but this on the day before has been approved by has been negotiated successfully by the commission and has been approved by all member states and the election of a new prime minister will of course not change the parameters of what is on the table that there is no reason why didn't go shater deal 3 times it went through parliament it was rejected and the prime minister resigned and that's where we end up in the situation that we are now in that we're looking for a new tory leader and therefore a new prime minister and the problem was originally we're meant to go out on march the 20 not to mention leave the the e.u. looks to us that you can't come up with a deal you haven't agreed to anything will extend it for 7 months there's also elite cabinet memo that's that's come out in the press saying no deal would be an option the country isn't actually ready for it so it's quite an intriguing point it might be a win for the government in the meantime but we still have that tory leadership race and there's also the ramifications of is the country actually prepared for
10:09 pm
a no deal in the 1st place a professor of european law told of the labor party's attempt to seize control of the brics it process seems to have failed. it was the wrong moment to do it what you don't do if you're the opposition this is a failure of labor strategy or opposition strategy what you don't do is try and intrude into a leadership contest by daring those in the conservative party to vote against their own. possible leaders so this was not a good mechanism if you like if you want to stop or exit i think there will be more opportunities down the road i don't think the majorities of shifted i just think that context is slightly different and i think things will move on. where clear about who is going to win the contest of the next 2 or 3 weeks in a 255 years and relatives of the victims of the grenfell tower tragedy in london

was. a to thank. thank put this is that are gathered here are against the next edition bill. that is me propose from the house that would allow any suspects to be extradited to man land china they say that this would ruin the one country 2 systems that has been established between hong kong and beijing which allows hong kong to has its own government its own legal system its own financial and economic affairs however though the chief executive of hong kong says that if this bill passes it's to improve the legal system and justice affairs meanwhile in the united states congressional leaders and speaker nancy pelosi says that if the bill does pass they would review the trading privileges with hong kong the extradition bill imperils
10:15 pm
the strong u.s. konkan relationship that has flourished for 2 decades if it passes the congress has no choice but to reassess with a hong kong is sufficiently autonomy under the one country 2 systems framework this declaration calls china's condemnation we demand the united states view the bill objective lee and impartially and be cautious in making remarks stop interfering in hong kong affairs and in the internal affairs of china the standoff you are in on kong is on going after what is the poultice a new round of the hearing over the legislation has been postponed until further notice evangelise obsess for r.t. . almost $80000.00 people have signed a petition demanding that italy drop criminal proceedings against german boat captain pick the 35 year old skipper of a rescue ship is accused of abetting and legal immigration that's after she personally assisted in the rescue of more than
10:16 pm
a 1000 migrants they were at risk of drowning unsafe as they attempted to cross the mediterranean to reach in europe the refrigeration of reporters. this is a case of peer clem a german boat captain and hero to some criminal to others she was at the helm of the event of boat in august 2017 when it entered the port of lump it was it located on an island between malta and the coast of tunisia the rescue vessel was detained and appears a lawyer now says she may face up to 20 years in prison and horrendous fines but no matter what appears status is unwavering get out we have witnessed what women and children have to face if they are denied safe travel by ignoring the submarine boats of european warships and expelling libyan militias brutal people who shelter refugees from unsuitable overcrowded scraps and pick them up sometimes too late italian investigators have accused her crew of colluding with smugglers with photos
10:17 pm
leaked to the media allege in the bodes returning to libya's coast on purpose to be used again by smugglers a date hasn't been set yet for with klemp has dubbed her show trial and many agree tens of thousands of people are back in her in a petition calling for italy to drop the charges this however falls under matteo salvini is crackdown they tell interior minister and deputy prime minister is known for his open and strong until migrant views to stop rescue ships that are carrying migrants from docking on and telling shores and allowing refugees to disembark it's what he's been after since his appointment last year and he has supporters too it's not as though the italians acted without probable cause there is much truth through reporting that every year of investigation preceded the arrest including videos witness statements don't develop the picture mrs rescuing people from drowning is
10:18 pm
b.s. propaganda rescue them and take them to germany it is quite convenient to rescue people and leave them initially greece cetera we have enough migrants we did. wants anymore sheen able the trafficking of people that's illegal she's responsible for the so-called refugee crisis there is a clear split within the e.u. over how to tackle the migrant crisis and while they say the undecided on whether to assist or hinder the flow of migrants into europe captain peer klemp could be losing her battle at sea and on for. more if nationality reporting from germany. although the italian all farty say that that anti migrant policy is a success why focalize asians if they live off there are being put at risk. but imagine your since the start of the year there have been around 2000 rivals by street with nothing small boats sailing boats rowing boats whatever they have to cross the mediterranean that's compared to 14000 last year. by guns have no say in
10:19 pm
how or when to leave the traffickers make the decision for them they couldn't care less if the people arrive dead or alive if we do not intervene soon it will be a sea of blood the reason why all dissent in this because there is no agreement to that european level for the resettlement of the asylum seekers and therefore easily could have become just the container of all asylum seekers waiting for maybe resettlement in other european countries the 1st thing is to reach around the european level then the stablished leaders rules that apply to all member states so the country of 1st arrival we could say doesn't become also and only the only one to receive these people so this this food creates a flow there should be a coordinated approach. but at the moment to europe is not capable of device in any
10:20 pm
kind of solution. bt community has his house at the vatican for a. slater's guidance they questions the existing principles of gender identity the paper is meant to be a bid to tackle what the catholic institution calls an educational crisis saskia taylor delves into the reason for the sudden outrage of a rhetoric the vatican has been insisting on for so long. now you'd be forgiven for thinking the catholic church doesn't really know what turns the public on and you'd be right in fact it's just dealt a mosque to class and turning people off the vatican has released a paper which says there are only 2 genders male and female and it's called male and female he created them just so that was no misunderstanding if we wish they can approach to the question of gender theory that is based on the path of dialogue is vital to bear in mind the distinction between the ideology of gender on the one
10:21 pm
hand and the whole field of research on gender that human sciences of one's taken on the other so according to the catholics men are men and women are women and anyone who sees themselves otherwise is provocative and poses a threat to the institution of marriage and seeks to overthrow nature itself unsurprisingly it's head up you know note amongst those who are outraged to find that any if you want gender theory other than that of course exists by refusing to engage in dialogue with people about their lived experiences or so from a standing in faith the vatican remains in the dark ages for most in a false teaching that relies on myth rumor unfolds so the paper's not popular partly because it sounds like it's from the time before christ which it is it's filled with quotes from the bible after all because it was released during pride month the 30 days every year the world celebrates the l g b t community quit but wait no where in the paper does it say being gay is sinful and in fact it condemns
10:22 pm
any discrimination and violence against people the number of men and women who have deep seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. must be accepted with respect compassion and sensitivity to resign often just destroy a nation in their regard should be avoided now it's surely not news to outrage friends that the church struggles with accepting homosexuality and transgenderism and when they do throw in their 2 pennies worth met the backlash is huge as one bishop in rhode island planned when he decided to share his view on pride month a reminder that catholics should not support or attend q pride month of vance held in june they promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to catholic faith and morals. it seems the people who replied must of left the christian value of kindness out the door we woke up this morning and we saw the bishop tweet and we were honestly flabbergasted he is like the don't trump of the catholic church goes on twitter and
10:23 pm
spews out hate my catholic children will be attending pride events as this. guy always taught me what would jesus do yeah i know jesus would be attending that pride parade with also with pride and i also know that god is love and jesus is love and love is love the bishop apologized and decided to spread the love but the question begging to be asked is why the surprise kids the church isn't known for being big on reform is it really shocking it's not breaking it's habits pun intended. but it's internal security service m i 5 is under fire for illegally holding on to bulk data collected on citizens the situation came to light during a case brought by civil rights group of liberty. m i 5 have been holding onto peoples day time ordinary people's date on your dates on my data illegally for many years
10:24 pm
not only that they've been trying to keep the really serious errors secret secret from the security services watch dog who's supposed to know about them secret from the home office secret from the prime minister and secrets from the public during the trial is emerged in my 5 was already aware of the fairly as 3 years ago r.t. is playboy co picks up the story. where there might not be a plaque on the door but even google maps will tell you that that building over there is m i 5 britain's domestic intelligence agency and even though its job is to root out the bad guys the agency itself has been accused of extraordinary and persistent illegality in a high court case the case against m i 5 now relates back to a law that was passed in the u.k. in 2016 the investigatory powers act back then the new legislation was sold as
10:25 pm
something that would create transparency in the wake of the snowden scandal which had revealed that the u.s. and its allies including the u.k. had been collecting vast troops of public data but the investigatory powers act quickly became dubbed the snoopers charter privacy campaigners claim it simply legalized the practices that snowden had exposed and introduced intrusive new powers. there is however a government watchdog that's meant to oversee the u.k.'s sweeping surveillance laws and according to documents revealed in court that watchdog the u.k.'s investigative powers commissioner has delivered a highly critical assessment of m i 5 in particular over m i 5 storage of cracked public data in one letter presented in court m i 5 knowledge that data
10:26 pm
collected by m i 5 was being stored in ungoverned spaces. there is a high likelihood of material being discovered when it should have been deleted in a disclosure exercise leading to substantial legal or oversight failure back in may britain's home secretary sajid javid revealed that compliance risks had been identified with how and why 5 handled data the report of the investigatory powers commissioner's office into these risks concluded that they were serious and required immediate mitigation the commission also expressed concern that m i 5 should have reported the compliance risks to him sooner the court case which is ongoing also revealed that the government watchdog would be subjecting m i 5 to far greater scrutiny from now on comparing it to a school being placed on special measures which is the government's equivalent of

the naughty step well thanks for joining us on r.t. international we're back in 30 minutes with the headline so see that. we are in a strange situation where everybody is making a lot of noise about military action against iran but nobody in the part of that alliance actually wants to do it there's no desire for it so do you hope that iran makes a mistake. somehow and then there isn't some kind of confrontation and then the iranians will be forced to come to the table you know begging for some kind of solution on american terms but you know i think that is dreaming that's a pipe dream. join me every thursday on the alec simon show and i'll be speaking to us in the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then.
