1:07 pm
the kingdom has always denied his involvement instead blaming the crown prince's advisor saddam funny and general ahmed. the saudis say justice will be delivered but it'll be in their own way. that's we seems this through having secret court hearings that are closed to the media and international human rights groups where the accused on to name him to death penalties are sought seemingly arbitrarily it is one of the reasons why the turkish government sees the culprits should face trial in istanbul and valves they will be tried in absentia even if saudi arabia refuses to hand them over all of them one issue instead of a subdued yanni according to turkish war because saudi arabia is not cooperating the suspect can be tried in absentia but without issuing a final verdict turkey can also defer the case to the united nations or other international bodies amnesty international is one of the groups calling on turkey to request an international independent inquiry into murder members of the human
1:08 pm
rights group hold a vigil outside the consulate on thursday to mark one hundred days since his killing obviously the murder took place here in istanbul so it's right and it's important that the turks that is keep up their call for an independent u.n. investigation but really the international committee as a whole needs to commit to this investigation to ensure that that's what happens and justice is done it was reported that crown prince mohammed bin sideman was told by president trump's advisor christian are not to worry about the fallout of the murder of course rocketry because it would die down within troops for three months one hundred days on and it seems that there is a risk that the international community will forget about the saudi journalist who entered this building to get married but summed it up being murdered and still no justice has been served. istanbul. and some of the journalist was also remembered adam and while event on capitol hill in washington a speaker of the u.s.

house of representatives nancy pelosi criticized the trumpet ministrations response to the killing. mike hanna reports from washington d.c. . speaker after speaker asserted that the best way to remember jamal khashoggi would be to continue to fight for the freedom of the press against the many attacks being waged on it. why why am i here john important the press is important why am i here because it's personal the turn of the mob or all was set by the new speaker of the house nancy pelosi who was sharply critical of the lack of faction of the trumpet ministration it responds to murder if we decide their commercial interest should override the statements that we make in the actions that we take then we must admit that we have lost all moral authority to talk about any atrocities anywhere any time we must carry on because

1:15 pm
but it's the population's every day struggles that pose the major challenge. the government cannot control the. in fact with every measure they take the situation gets worse because of the hyperinflation i think the government won't be able to solve it ungovernability is an issue not because of the opposition but because of economic difficulties and the failure of basic public services. says he has a plan in place to get the country out of the crisis a plan that convinces his followers but not those who are desperate for change. japanese prime minister shinzo. the e.u. to avoid a deal breaks it says his government supports the draft agreement that theresa may is trying to push through the british parliament but m.p.'s are expected to reject the day or next week versions of the european union at the end of march. so tell me

1:21 pm
headlines on al-jazeera the stream is coming up next. we understand the differences. and the similarities of cultures across the world so no matter how you take it al-jazeera will bring you the news and current affairs that. al-jazeera. ok and you are in the stream today we're discussing three stories right at the top of the week's headlines in the struggle for human rights we would love for you to tweet us your thoughts. chat. at the us mexico border when us president thursday to meet with border patrol offices in mexico thousands of white
1:22 pm
coping for his own home. but these central americans watching president speech from the mexico u.s. border the main reaction was indignation as he once again depicted them as prospective criminals however this is. what he said is offensive to me because we're not all the same there are criminals everywhere he should give us an opportunity to cross the only thing we want is to work and support our family president trump hopes his message will help him get the funds for a good will which he says will stop them along with drugs and terrorists despite the fact that overwhelmingly come through legal entry points. joining us live from the border now does our correspondents john homan who's in tijuana mexico and kimberly how could his in mcmullen texas good to have you both here john exactly what are you sending next is on a war zone offense what is that. you want to. do.
1:23 pm
you have to be ready for. it all. kimberly your chris is with you and he shared this with us it's a little bit of a video so he's showing us what you're seeing behind you there we go explain away you all that looks like a fence and also a gate according to producer chris yeah it's both and this is where the president is visiting maccallum texas to illustrate this is kind of symbolic of what he's trying to get and why he says there's a need for a border wall that's more fortified because as you can see behind me is my producer chris sheridan shared you know parts of it are easily scalable if you're physically fit nabl to do so so that's why donald trump is here making this case of what some people call the sort of a massive photo op but certainly there is the case to be made that there are places
1:24 pm
where it's easier to scale than others what are people saying that side of the fence side of the border kimberly about the president saying when we're not doing any business right now and to give me money for this war. well we've been talking to some of the folks here in mccallum texas and you know there's a little bit of pushback they're not loving the fact that the media has descended on this town they say it's relatively quiet here it is predominantly latino those the people that speak live here a lot of them don't speak english i and they do very much resent how some of the their relatives some of their friends are being characterized as criminals that want to cross into the united states and commit crimes but certainly that's what the president is talking about right now he's he's at a photo op where he is sort of making the point that is the fact that the border patrol is very much in support of what he's arguing for because drugs come in and there's an illegal weapons coming in as women are victims of crime and john i think
1:25 pm
you might be able to speak to that better with regard to whether or not this is actually true or not the president's claims yeah john can i just can i just interject he was a she for skinny that he was thinking about. the us mexico border and she from the streets with who has moved security because come tell drunk operations are becoming more sophisticated more people are fleeing violence in their respective countries is that even to the truth on twitter but is it true john. when they. broke. the law and you know i. think come in who has been very. thank. you a president. spoke almost a coming. so there's a lot of things claiming about this quite but. one thing i wanted
1:26 pm
given. the question from you will so i can leave american public. believing. to move forward or forward about like. president bush. it's interesting you asked that john because i was looking at some polling numbers this week and politico i believe had the numbers i don't have exactly right but about thirty seven percent did agree with the president that in fact this was a crisis and then there was another about a third that thought it was certainly a problem so when you look at the broader american public most people agree that there is a problem with illegal immigration and the president has already noticed in the american media got a lot of question back for some of his numbers and you know we know now that the president does play fast and loose with facts at times but the point he's trying to make about this being
1:27 pm
a crisis is certainly one that in two thousand and fourteen in fact donald trump tweeted this out today thursday in fact that this was called a crisis when there were about the same number of illegal entries under barack obama so what i think we've got here is is a wall that's become kind of a symbol of a dueling narrative whether you support trump or don't support trump and whether or not you see this as a priority i think both democrats and republicans see this is our priority making sure that immigration is reformed congress over the last twenty years is failed to do that and they still disagree and this is why we've got this partial government shutdown in the united states right now is that they disagree on how to fortify the border some believe that it should be a physical wall i would marry americans believe you can do it with drones and things like that let me share this with you this is from a window bag and let me start with john i believe president trump is among the most influential while insisting on a border war with mexico shows
1:28 pm
a trade and thereby increasing limiting while peace and that relationship that defines racism that will remaining delegates in the heart of mexicans john. what i think we saw in our pool wasn't the thought that we will be able to save some central americans that would immediately go to the. great as criminals try to carry the town streets. and one of the things he thinks going to push. our state one thing i think it's interesting to say about the people trying to get you know i. was in the office i'm now hearing about women on the come to be . the number of on the come men are actually going down so that's. what i mean the people trying to get in touch with needs to be treated in a different way what a lot of people are trying to do now specially when the children they're going in.
1:29 pm
first saw them that way which is really slow of all climbing over the. begin to move aside time to try to guess what. is and isn't of course the security it's a humanitarian crisis in terms of there's not enough four hundred immigration judges in the u.s. to produce those types to decide whether they should be getting getting asylum with they should be. kind and to jump in here for just a second john what we're starting to see in the media in the united states right now is the fact that people are noting when the same argument was made by barack obama twenty fourteen he didn't get the same kind of pushback that we're seeing from donald trump now one thing though that donald trump is getting some pushback on is whether or not to declare this and national emergency which would then allow him to access funds that normally would be appropriated for bigger crises in order
1:30 pm
to win this battle with within congress and get the border wall built so you both inspired similar. comment kelly kelly says needs more security when he's already existing possibly and then maybe need of repairs but definitely much more security at border for trucks and vehicles to scan for drug smuggling going to put you both from the small here just in the last three seconds of the segment person trying to visit just like his address on tuesday political stunt kimberly. oh boy. i think that sure there are some political theater involved in all of this i don't i think to be fair i don't think donald trump is the first one to utilize this but as a former reality show t.v. star i think he can utilize it more effectively than any president before him south political stunt. yeah i think it can believe but there's a reason. why. i think you have
1:31 pm
a ten minute rule because the border protection why the. moment it's going to provide good pictures but media won't way or another but it's also an issue for those who don't agree with i think. president from his comment. who put it on the one that we don't know as was in trouble so eloquently says bob i don't homan and kimberly how could you can find more of that reporting on al-jazeera dot com we move now to bangkok thailand where a saudi teen's plea for asylum has gone as international support has a story. another live of my own i see you and i see our own land.
1:32 pm
of the. first of the. joining us to discuss this story from berkeley california we have brad adams he's the asia director with human rights watch hello there brad good to have you i'm just looking at raw halfs twitter feed you must get a sense of what should feeling that moment to moment she says here pinned to the top of her twitter feed don't let anyone break your wings your free fights and get your rights where is she what she's up to right now. well she's in a hotel in bangkok under the protection of the united nations high commissioner for refugees this took a long time she flew out of kuwait where she was on a family vacation to escape violence from her family she says that she complained of been held for six months in a locked room because she cut her hair in a way that her family didn't like that she's beaten by her siblings or brothers.
1:33 pm
and if she had still been in saudi arabia she probably would not have been able to get to bangkok because saudi has male guardianship laws that prohibit women from making their own decisions about how to travel you know where to go even to go to a movie or a restaurant any permission and so she took good advantage of the opportunity of being in kuwait where they don't have. to get in a fight and she was only intending to transit in bangkok to go to australia and claim asylum when the thais apparently allowed saudi officials into the airport where they took her passport away and then she watched this incredible social media campaign from the airport in thailand to garner support our office in bangkok stepped in and helped or and lots of international media converged on the airport you know a lot of journalists did something very creatively but one way tickets from bangkok to somewhere else the cheapest figure they can find to get past the security barrier is going to europe or to be able to sit in here as this talk about that
1:34 pm
whole day rania picks up a saudi and a woman is under un n.c.r. protection for expressing a very basic human rights while her country is a u.n. men that she's an example of many saudi women and the window into the pricing environment that saudi women are living tell us more about that yes exactly right i mean this is the fruit of dictatorship in the gulf. and the fruit very impressive laws against women and girls you know that any guest says that he's going to modernize the country he has given some provisional. rights to saudi women to drive which many people mean you out of but that is such an elemental basic right that is still far ahead of other arrangement if you want to go to another country in your study would be to get rid of your father rather grand father in some cases receive the sounds your son we women are basically permanent
1:35 pm
legal minors. can if you are off who is executive director of human rights watch a instructing off the back of this story. another person his name is kim al arabiya and he's a bahraini soccer star and he's a dissident and he's in thai detention even though he has a refugee status in australia where he is bahrain wants him back but he fears torture how these stories connect to a raw herself says hashtag safe at kean please help him same story don't forget him i'm with you is this the same story. well it's similar i mean the team fled bogus charges involved rame he was a professional soccer player and he fell out with the head of the soccer federation in the arena happens to be up the phone number and a member of the royal family in bahrain and they filed phony charges against him to
1:36 pm
some of vandalism in a case where it was impossible that he was a vandal because he was playing soccer at the time he fled australia he got married recently has been there for a couple of years he's been identified as a refugee. he asked us trains would be safe for me to go on my honeymoon and he just got married to thailand they said shirt but the bar razor unbeknownst to him had filed a notice of every poll of fake notice what's called a red notice to ask even ties to arrest them they duly arrested him in or pulled out with drawn the red notice said it was an issue an error but the thais are still holding him and here's where there's a big difference between the case in. iraq as in a very nice hotel under unix our protection hakim is sharing a cell of fifty people in thailand's immigration detention center in bangkok he says he doesn't know not enough room to roll over when he's asleep that the conditions are terrible it smells terrible yes we'll see his wife and he's supposed to be on his honeymoon this supposed to be you know that the most magnificent trip
1:37 pm
of his life and it's just been misery. dr adams we're going to leave it there brad adams is the age of the rights of the human rights watch thank you for jumping into the story now last story takes us to the u.s. state of tennessee where this week the governor granted clemency to a woman sentenced to life in prison at the age of sixteen sometimes scinto yeah brown's case is the subject of an upcoming documentary have a look. this is a record story of transformation and. it's. a
1:38 pm
beautiful intelligent caring educated woman who can make things better for. the director of that film me facing life to a stand your berman and he joins us now from los angeles and in new york we have mr potter she is the head of social impact and communications for odyssey impact that's an organization helping to shine light on youngsters in the juvenile justice system melissa daniel it's good to have you here let me just quote back a documentary to you don your beautiful intelligent caring educated woman you first spent fifteen years documenting some toyah story what can you tell us about her as a person. so toure is a very gracious young woman she when i met or shoot she struck me as very intelligent and articulate and that intelligence and her ability to communicate
1:39 pm
with me over the years really helped to fuel a very important story. not radical enough says this on twitter melissa her case was a travesty of justice that has now finally been resolved she should never have gone through the trauma of the trial and sentencing if she was white a wealthy i have no doubt the case would have been abandoned is that a big leap of imagination or do you think there's something to that comment oh i think there grab something to that any day we have over ten thousand supernal then two adult friends who think guidelines making up over two hundred thousand each year that are incarcerated as an adult for nonviolent crime so contorted theory is one of many that we hope the satellite aren't and will have a national and international and means that a prequel to look at that and think guidelines for young people so that they haven't you know truly flourish like this some think about some toy
1:40 pm
a story that touched so many people including a writer called fly a call this is what she told us a little bit earlier have a look i decided to call the governor haslam she pardons and tell your brown because i was by her story i felt like it was wrong to charge and child as an adult but also that he. was being held in a sex trafficking world so i believe that he truly deserves another chance at life and that's why i called you a not and will not a minister go ahead. yes absolutely i mean if he ruth to national attention and for lebron he corralled them well together to you you know like close the media to raise awareness you have brown and that are grassroots local attention and the and then national attention b.t.l. that through the end tremendous work with telling the film and her story we're now
1:41 pm
able to take a closer look at the circumstances that led to where she is today the world very grateful that the governor of tennessee granted her clemency recently and in her thirty's now she had the second chance that like damn i'm looking at a tweet that your production company said last year about if you acacia wondering what the celebs are all talking about this was last year about some brownie talked about the document trail and where you can see it look at this face this is a can't i mean this this was fifteen sixteen years ago i am wondering in these cases stan when this happens if it's just about vengeance and punishing somebody she's obviously a cad wind up what should be treated as an adult what conclusion did you come to where we're stepping into one of the most important discussions that happened with this documentary and through our thinking as we built it the there were several themes that we brought into the film just in toys family her biological family her
1:42 pm
adoptive family all the issues surrounding her but the overarching picture is that a child goes into the system and may well be transferred to to be treated as an adult and that's not exactly right the problem for the system the justice system is that a child treated within a juvenile system probably has a chance of getting help by age nineteen and that's certainly was the case with in tennessee and so for the court looking at the possibility of first degree murder that her she had to be transferred to the adult system and she was handled as an adult and but but our problem is that one size does not fit all we have lots of issues for kids. i am thinking about minnesota the criminal justice system in the way that it treats juveniles and where are we right now is them will empathy for kids even if they've done terrible terrible famous i
1:43 pm
think well you know i'm looking at the reception and it's aeration and utilizing the power of film and storytelling hurt the lives and bring that into our whole whereas if you don't personally know someone that impacted you may not be aware of the rough circumstances that people under the age of eighteen the daily us and now with the opportunity in social media and traditional media outlets of their own we can share the impact how they got through the arc the day and we're going to chance for rehabilitation than you know to yeah so you know i think that an important theme here and melissa is really touching on this is that you know we started out as i started looking at a story about one young woman and what her circumstances that led her into that neri violent situation we didn't do this force and toil we did this because
1:44 pm
