a rereminder of our top stories. the trial of president mohammed morsi has been adjourned to january. pro morsi supporters protested outside the court. the n.a.t.o. secretary general has warned pakistan against blocking its supply roots to afghanistan. and pakistan's former leader mushariff has been granted bail over the ordered raid. morsi and 14 senior members of the muslim brotherhood were charged with the following offense. inciting the killing of three protesters who gathered outside
of the presidential palace on december 4th last year. several people died in opposition protesters. it happened after morsi declared his position as president did not need to be looked at by the judiciary. >> reporter: sworn in as it's first elected president. it wasn't his style and personality that won him votes. it was strong support from the muslim brotherhood, and egyptians who didn't want to vote for morsi' opponent. a figure from the mubarak era. he tried to ease the fears of women and minorities. he promised that his presidency would no threaten their rights. but politically and economically it was a tough year for mohammed morsi. his opponents accused him of being a puppet for the muslim
brotherhood. in the end that's what led to the protests that brought down his presidency. the protest has millions and supporters and protestersally. the response, his time in office was a failure. inflation soared, unemployment reached a record high, fuel shortages became part of every day life for egyptians. sectarian issues, he may have been praised for reining in the military, but to many people he showed poor judgment.
when protests against him from in full swing he appointed a man as governor of luxor, who was someone who was part of the killings there. he won the election latter year with 52% of the vote after the up rising that got rid of hosni mubarak. but the street power that brought him into the country's highighest office would in the d see him deposed. the samal jazeera. >> earlier we heard from an egyptian judge and constitutional researcher in cairo. he believes morsi's decision to represent himself in court may
have been ill-advised but the belief that the legal process is invalid. >> this trial reflects the political strife, and that this is not a trial by law. anmorsi and the muslim brotherhd should admit to the new situation. they were a force on the street. the trial is beginning, and he has to admit the whole process and defend himself. he is not any more the president of egypt. this is the reality. he has to admit the assistance of a legal team. my main concern is that this trial is de stabilizing the
country and i do not want it to take a long time because the egyptian society is at a very trillionth situation, and with we have to reach for its stability. >> we go to assistant professor of egyptian history. legally there are questions about morsi's court proceedings are proceeding. his lawyers say they have not been able to see him when they want to. what do you make of how the whole process has been conducted. >> this is not the procedure we would normally envision with regard to the legal proceeding. this is to bring legal ends to his presidency by imprisoning him for life or worse, seeking execution. this is to legitimate the coup
process put in place since morsi. and these are very special things because this is a process led by the judiciary, the government, that is meant to lead to conviction. even the defendants themselves are not particularly concerned with the idea of getting adequate defense because this is not something that has been demonstrated to be possible given the climate this very oppressive authoritarian leadership. >> they said we're not going back on this. the overthrow stands. but how is this going to be perceived by egypt's western allies? it's going to be a large degree of discomfort at the speed with which this is happened to morsi, being deposed, and then facing charges. >> certainly we have not seen ringing endorsement on this
process by the western governments who have spoken about what is taking place in egypt since july 3rd. secretary of state john kerry's visit to egypt this past day has been more indicative of the discomfort that the administration has. yes, he's makin not putting anyt of taint on it given the assumptions that this is not going to be a very fair and adequate process. having said that he did make comments that this is some how indicksive of the transition of democracy led by the military which flies in the face of everything we know and we've seen in the last few months. that position and the posture of this administration to the united states with regard to what is happening in egypt is also very trouble. >> indeed. we have the court case and we saw a large number of protests here in egypt.
do you think the anti-coup alliance can maintain their momentum until then? what do you think will happen in the interim. >> we've seen it only has gotten bigger. violent and repressive tactics of military that killed hundreds of egyptians since mid-august, and this will only strengthen the result of the support of the muslim brotherhood, and within the ranks of the egyptian society, this is offensive that you're going to repress the social movement that is part of the egyptian society. love them or hate them, the muslim brotherhood exists, and this is not the way to deal with them suppressing them, imprisoning them. this is a now a wider trend. this is no longer about the muslim brotherhood any more. this is been the larger state and egyptian society and now it
has expanded to effect all elements of the egyptian party where no independent social force will be able to express itself subjected to the same kinds of oppressive tactics that we've seen in the military committing. >> this whole situation is going to drag on awhile longer. thank you very much, indeed, for joining us. a spokesman for the palestinian party said israel's plan to build more settlements, on palestinian land. it comes ahead of the u.s. secretary of state visit john kerry. >> this is a denial of palestinian rights and a blow to signed international agreements and international law. it is a failure, and it is destroying the american efforts. therefore what we need now is to hear the american reaction. we need a clear reaction to
prevent israel from continuing with their plans, and to stop israel from ruining the peace process. >> in the u.k. police are hunting for a man linked to the somali group after they disappeared despite being under surveillance. let's go back to our news center, barbara gy? >> reporter: it would seem that the suspect was allowed to visit his mosque where he left in a burka. the independent review of the legislation in the u.k. was asked if mohammed mohammed presented a threat? >> he plainly presents a threat of helping other people to become terrorists built on his sympathy towards terrorism. we know that he's committed to al-shabab. the most dangerous terrorist
organization in the world at the time. >> at least one polling station in the city was forced to close early. let's cross and speak to is the election being seen as a success there? there was a mixed reaction here in kosovo. yesterday's election was a huge success especially because of a big turnout mostly in the regions, and they see these elections as a huge success because these are the first elections to be the serbian population that was casting
votes. here in northern kosovo, where i am, there is also mixed feelings representatives of serbia and representatives that took place on those elections. one polling station was attack attacked, one bomb was thrown on another polling station, and there were all-day widespread intimidation by nationalist organizations which were agitating for bo boycotts of the elections. they had to be held in northern kosovo, and they won't recognize the results because of those i wants, and in the meantime interim administration should be installed in municipality with
serbian majority. >> the e.u. itself, has condemned the violence. how will that affect the efforts by efforts of serbia to move closer to europe. >> they will certainly ask some questions to belgrade regarding the organization of these elections. actually on wednesday prime minister of serbia and kosovo and will meet to discuss the elections. nobody currently questions whether the kosovo or serbia is in danger past the european union especially because of the agreement that was achieved and signed by two prime ministers in april, which is very important for the
normalizations of the relations between belgrade. so the road to the european union is open. every representative will ask questions about the organizations of the elections in kosovo, and especially about the incidents here in northern kosovo. >> thank you. and now let's go back to doha. >> thank you very much, indeed. now a walk of freedom for nelson mandela. still to come, the bio pic of his life. and we'll look at sports to see how madrid is keeping with

continues. they arrived in the czech republic for their up coming league match. >> at first it has to be said that it was to be expected whether i like it or not. i'm surprised that the voluntary alert to the authorities has been seen as invalid. we're going to do everything in the coming months until the trial in march to persuade the court of our arguments. >> just a point behind barcelona, the spanish international got his third goal in the campaign and 2-0 is how it ened. in argentina, san lorenzo has moved up second to beat boca
