hello again i'm the stars are aligned about top stories this hour the u.s. says iran must immediately release the vessel it seized in the gulf iran's revolutionary guards captured a foreign tanker along with its crew tehran says they were trying to smuggle oil. turkey has called the u.s. decision to suspend it from the f. 35 fighter jet program unfair saying it will harm their relations washington acted off the tack he accepted the delivery of russia's s. 400. defense system. and the un special rapporteur on human rights in myanmar says
the persecution of the rethink of the is still ongoing she says villages have been burned down in recent days and she's been prevented from getting in to gather information. well let's get more now on our top story iran's seizure of an oil tanker on this we can bring in lawrence brennan he's an adjunct professor of admiralty and international maritime law at fordham university and he joins us now from new york lawrence talk us through how unusual this is for a tanker like this to be seized. it's not as unusual as we would think there has been long going smuggling in the persian gulf area trade a whore moves and elsewhere i was on an aircraft carrier there nearly 40 years ago we were cognizant of those problems the seizure is difficult to understand but it must be viewed in the larger context of the events since the middle of may where where we've had 4 tankers attacked in the persian gulf 2 in mid june in this in in
the gulf of oman which was unprecedented area and we've had other incidents in the straits of hormuz. nations have a certain right to prohibit smuggling we're not sure as of now if this was the ship that was originally described as a u.a.e. bunker tanker bet 190 foot long cold. which was seized over the weekend at that time the story and i think the story came from iran was that the ship. had a mechanical difficulty was drifting and was assisted and brought into iranian waters imports a port of refuge for assistance now the details if we're to really talking about the same ship are somewhat different if you look at the overall picture and the economic conflict the war involving the oil in tankers that has begun to reflash to mid may 2019 we have an escalating problem the risk of hostilities and
conflict continue to grow we have hundreds of millions of dollars worth of property damage. but fortunately yet there have been no injuries or deaths reported and no massive environmental problems so this is part of a big picture with many parts of iran is involved in a number of them it may be related probably is related to the events in. the brawl to where a pen a former panamanian flag taker grace one was seen. by royal marines and the panel me and the. government allegedly carrying oil from the gulf around africa bound for syria originally the oil was described as being from iraq and the tanker lost its panamanian flag registry not exactly sure when that was but it was one of 60 or so vessels that have been de flagged by panama because
of involvement in smuggling so this is a major crisis and of course it can be traced back at least to the j. c.p.o. way in the u.s. withdrawal from that a year ago and increasing sanctions well let me ask you this. sure because the u.s. is now demanding that this ship this tank be released immediately and it's describing this as harassment so what kind of the video is govern this through the revolutionary guards have the jurisdiction to do this and to hold on to this vessel . well i don't know the iranian law but the revolutionary guards are as i understand it a unique military force i would expect that a civil law enforcement force such as the court injured roll to that seized grace or the u.s. marshal service that in forces arrest warrants for ship arrests in the united states would be the appropriate authority. the united states position
is is a strong position and if the iranians have evidence of smuggling and that an iranian admiralty court or a civil court a civilian court that is would investigate in the whole proceedings perhaps that would be an appropriate answer but. the concern is the statements that have been attributed to reigning officials in r.g.c. officials that if the iranian government did not obtain the release of mt grace and the oil that they would retaliate by seizing another vessel and over the past weekend we had the incident involving an english british take their british heritage which which was protected by a british warship and not forced into these waters in iranian waters and as for the national waters of the strait of we'll be watching or really i found very very
nicely indeed thank you very much fewer time that's an hour and spread then an adjunct professor of admiralty and international maritime ill at fordham university . now lebanese authorities say they plan to scrap a requirement for palestinian refugees in lebanon. now that's been one of the demands from palestinians you've been protesting for days they say they have been unfairly treated since the government began cracking down on unlicensed foreign labor reports. they have taken to the streets. tires. close their shops and block entrances to their camps i love announced palestinian refugees are protesting against a government crackdown on documented foreign labor that they say is affecting their livelihoods. i cannot afford to pay $1000.00 for a work permit how will i be able to feed my children already we are surviving
lebanese law already bans palestinians from working in many professions as part of a long standing policy to discourage them from staying palestinian officials now fear the new measures will cause even more suffering. palestinian workers not a foreign visitor but rather a refugee you've forced to be living in lebanon we call on the ministry of labor to implement a 2010 law that exempts palestinians for paying for work permits the labor ministry says it is in forcing the law to protect lebanese jobs it also denies targeting palestinians but critics say it is part of a campaign directed at the larger syrian refugee population to force them to return home. with lebanon understands the difficult situation of palestinians however laws should be applied to everyone but we will work on a law that takes into consideration there are difficult conditions. unemployment among the palestinian workforce is 18 percent in recent years tens of thousands
have left the country legally or illegally affected by the dire economic conditions here and government regulations that deny them basic rights. palestinians have long complained of what they call discriminatory laws against them refugees have repeatedly said they don't want to permanently settle in lebanon but israel is preventing them from returning to their lands. many palestinians believe they should enjoy special status as refugees the lebanese government is promising to find an arrangement but that is doing little to calm fears for these people it's been more than 70 years in exile in a country that hasn't been welcoming jennifer there beirut. now british m.p.'s have back to bid to stop a new prime minister from suspending parliament to force through a no deal breck says to felicity barr now with more from a european broadcast center. yes the measure which passed by 315 votes to 274 is

is necessarily going to hold up so whoever it is boris johnson or jeremy hunt is going to really have their work cut out particularly if they want to push through. it which you know it's worth reminding ourselves has been voted against on several occasions by parliament already with parliament demonstrating again its distaste for no deal and the e.u. repeatedly refusing to reopen the existing deal the prospect remains of no bricks at all to be clear parliament here has not prevented and no deal breaks it that many experts say could be economically disastrous for the united kingdom that would require an act of parliament but m.p.'s opposed to no deal have bought themselves time in the hope of being able to take more decisive action in the autumn. defeat inflicted less a blow to the sitting government more a preemptive strike aimed at the next one jonah hill al-jazeera london. and
