of the very important aspects of the december the chelsea defender case, so—called date rape —— date claimed that he was abused. that rape drugs and their use in the case case has been closed, tottenham and the metropolitan police say that is that we are discussing here. they have now exhausted all mines, at the news of investigation, and can find no evidence to support his she has, she released a statement at lunchtime today after sentencing saying that they are basically claims —— all lines. they say that needing to review into this ghb he has their full support, drug, because i think many people claims —— all lines. they say that he has theirfull support, but claims —— all lines. they say that are perplexed by the fact that this he has their full support, but they can find no evidence whatsoever series of crimes went on for two and regarding that claim of racist abuse half years without anybody coming at the tottenham hotspur stadium forward to say they had been just before christmas. we will have assaulted, but they were knocked more on that in sports day at out. so, if you like by this drug 6:30pm. ghb that they came around, gained the term is 5:30pm. —— time is consciousness of the serious sexual assaults without having a clue of what had happened to them. some of them shake his hand and said thank you for looking after us, because that was the original reason they went into his flat for. to get a 5:30pm. millions of iranians have gathered in tehran for the funeral of the military commander drink orto make went into his flat for. to get a drink or to make a mobile phone call general qasem soleimani, who was killed in a us 01’ drink or to make a mobile phone call or something. so this drug, ghb, drone strike in iraq. his daugher zeinab has warned which they think was used, they that the us faces repercussions. can't prove it, but they think that meanwhile, a british frigate and a destroyer — was the drug that was used at the hms montrose and hms defender — time is now going to be looked at are to start accompanying uk—flagged
more closely. it's currently a class ships through the strait cdrug, so of hormuz in the gulf, more closely. it's currently a class c drug, so it is illegal, but are where a tanker was seized by iran lastjuly. the controls on a strict enough? the let's go to glasgow effects that it's had in this case and speak to martin lanni. we re effects that it's had in this case were horrendous, and it's onlyjust he was the royal navy's liaison because one of those victims an officer to the us navy's fifth fleet in bahrain in 2016. 18—year—old man, regained consciousness midway through an attack and fought off his attacker and went to police, that this has thank you forjoining us. it is good to have you with us. first of all, all ended, otherwise, it could have been ongoing for much longer. danny, your thoughts on what the state of many thanks again. our correspondent at manchester crown courts. tension will be among crews and let's speak now to professor adam winstock, he's the director those who are operating shipping in of the global drug survey, an independent research company this part of the world and whether which runs the world's the response are currently being put largest drug survey. together by the british government adam, thank you very much for is, in your view, sufficient or not? joining us, because danny was mentioning this drug called ghb, it is sufficient for the moment. while we try to work out during this they can't confirm its use but they period of certainty but iran's strongly suspect that this was the drug that was being used in this case, what can you tell us about it. reaction is going to be after friday's events. the ships at their this was a drug that was first made in the 1960s as an anaesthetic, and it drug that can be today to a planning as a contingency additional
people sleep, it can be used as a treatment for narcolepsy, but the reason it's used in the scene is escort forces and are well used to because it's a drug that can promote doing escort duties since the 1980s, so it is business as usual for the confidence and also increase peoples sexual desire. it can also reduce royal navy in that sense, but peoples inhibitions, and that's why different from the summer when the it has a place among people who want to facilitate sex using a drug. but the difference between a dose that ste na different from the summer when the stena imperio was taken. now there is more tension in the air because keeps someone happy and alert and a by the events in iraq. that changes dose that leads leaves you things from the perspective of the navy side, the defence posture first unconscious and vulnerable as a little as half a mill, so this is incredibly potent and very difficult will be higher and it will to use in a safe manner. so you inevitably lead to more nervous underlie the difficulty interviewers posture for all concerned, whether the iranians will choose to make will be wondering how widespread is that the point of contact to it used today. retaliate remains to be seen, but they will look for some sort of compared to other drugs, it's proxy response is still to be incredibly unpopular even among gay dialled out. that really was the men wear a tiny minority of those point that i wanted to raise, was have used this drug command i think your reading of the likely targets one of the reasons it hasn't really might be orat caught on is because it's so risky. your reading of the likely targets might be or at least how likely the so it's worked on by the global drug unable targets might be, given what survey and they would suggest that you know of how the iranians one of five men and women three
responded back in july you know of how the iranians responded back injuly as he women who have used ghb in the last mentioned that incident there. will year have passed out. and when you they be put up in any way by the pass out from you are vulnerable to fa ct they be put up in any way by the fact that the navy is deploying in people, and as we have already the sense? i think from the iranian heard, people's memory for things is perspective, they will be looking very impaired. so they are uncertain for easy wins, the low hanging fruit, they do not want to go toe to what's happened, they feel that they can't come forward and make a toe with a may first. it does not complaint, and in fact what's needed here to better support for people who have been victims of sexual assault where drugs and alcohol are involved, not necessarily tougher drug logs, which we know can actually stop people seeking help. an interesting aspect of this is the fa ct an interesting aspect of this is the fact that the police can forward set them out because they militarily again asking for other potential imputed to the west verses, they are victims to come forward. what does likely to look for some proxy your experience of the readiness or response, likely on land. sure they otherwise of people who may have been caught up in the a situation have responded in some way to the events of friday without ratcheting like this and come forward and say what happened to them? for a lot of up events of friday without ratcheting up the military response and give in people, there is such uncertainty particular the us an easy excuse to about what has happened, they simply don't know whether a crime has been use mightily superior military force committed. worked on by the global drug survey last year which looked if that is what is warranted. so up drug survey last year which looked up 5000 cases where people have from the iranian perspective, there reported being ta ken is an element of wanting to up 5000 cases where people have reported being taken advantage of where drugs and alcohol had been
involved. 97% of cases people had not reported him to police, and it de—escalate military contact, but they have shown many times over the was around uncertainty, yea rs they have shown many times over the years that where there is an easy embarrassment, shame, stigma, win for them or an unguarded humiliation. so what we need is to merchant are the realm of your other make sure that people understand that if they think they've been a victim of sexual assault, there are allied escort cannot be everywhere allied escort cannot be everywhere services available, that they should all the time, they cannot relate the fa ct all the time, they cannot relate the fact that they may seek to take one never feel that they can't go of those as they did in the late summer last year. you're very clear forward to the police. but it's incredibly challenging thing, and for those men who did come forward, that, martin, buti you know, they are incredibly brave summer last year. you're very clear that, martin, but i will pick up on that, martin, but i will pick up on that phrase that appears may have to do so. and for the other victims noticed is bell, a proxy response on land. kind of context are you thinking about there? in the short term, and a military perspective, in terms of iran, the military leadership prefer to wait a while out there, for the defence posture of whoever and details of organisations offering information and support they are interested in attacking with sexual violence are available at bbc.co.uk/actionline, relaxes a little and that is or you can call free at any time certainly not going to be the case to hear recorded information in the next days or weeks from the on 0800 077 077. us, uk or other verses. and greater manchester police in the next days or weeks from the are asking people who think us, uk or otherverses. from in the next days or weeks from the us, uk or other verses. from the they might be a victim to contact political and religious site, there them on, 0800 092 0a10. is probably an onus to act more i understand there are reasons to decisively and more quickly, to show not come forward, but the people who that they are not going to be kowtow
have come forward have helped remove this sexual predator and put him to buy the events of last friday. behind bars. adam, good of you to talk to us and join us again, thank they need to balance those two you so much. responses. the easy way for the and greater manchester police iranians to act is to use a proxy are asking people who think they might be a victim to contact thatis iranians to act is to use a proxy that is not immediately traceable back to them, although if it is a them on, 0800 092 0a10. sheer militia —— shiia militia, it will be obvious. a proxy attack the uk hasjoined france and germany along the lines of the protests in in calling for all sides to ease tensions over iran. baghdad's, some protesters made from in a joint statement, they urged restraint after friday's assassination by us forces, the iranian regime, is probably likely in the short term. they do of a senior iranian military leader. not want to engage in a military engagement because they would lose that and it would not work in their favour. what they have at the moment vast crowds have gathered in tehran is perhaps not an advantage, but for the funeral of qassem soleimani, and his successor has promised they have options in terms of the to avenge the killing. meanwhile president trump has response. they have uncertainty in repeated his threat to attack how they are going to do that, and iranian cultural sites, if iran does decide to retaliate. from an iranian perspective creates our diplomatic correspondent opportunities for them. thank you james landale reports.
chanting. very much. interesting points being made by martin lanni who was the if you want an idea of how qasem soleimani was seen knee really is an officer to the in iran, just look at this. fifth fleet in bahrain in 2006. hundreds of thousands thronging the streets of tehran today, to mourn his death. the headlines on bbc news... the iranian general may have been seen as a brutal military commander in the west, but here, soleimani was seen the worst serial rapist in british as a national hero. criminal history, reynhard sinaga, and now, a martyr, after his has been jailed for life assassination by the us. and with a minimum term of 30 years. the general was often described as the second most important man in iran. huge crowds gather in tehran to mourn the iranian general killed by us forces. the eu urges restraint this morning, the most powerful, as iran and the us make new threats against each other. the supreme leader ayatollah khamenei, said prayers the trial of the former hollywood over his coffin and wept at the loss producer harvey weinstein, on charges of sexual assault, of the man who controlled iran's network of allies and proxy forces gets under way in new york. across the middle east. an update on the market numbers for you — here's how london's and frankfurt ended the day. the crowds called for vengeance, and in the the united states this and the man who has replaced is how the dow and the nasdaq soleimani as head of the elite are getting on.

others. —— rebecca long bailey. that simply won't fly. saying that there are international laws which would prohibit that, but it's not thank you forjoining us. just about that pressure in the united states, although we saw that there are fears that bushfires statement from britain, france, and in the australian states of victoria and new south wales could merge germany last night, urging that de—escalation, it applies elsewhere as well. so i ran, borisjohnson is to create a huge ‘mega' blaze. saying, stay in the nuclear deal, light rain over the weekend don't let this fall apart simply brought a brief respite, but hotter weather is again because of what's happening now. forecast, which is likely to make the fires worse. likewise to iraq, he is saying let our correspondent shaima khalil has troops stayed, they play an been to the coastal town of eden, important part of the anti—isis south of canberra, where many have fled to escape the fires. effort in iraq, don't throw that away either. but as we have been saying all day, all of that, all three of those asks at the moment some difficult, and this is a big test for boris johnson's ability to the rain came as a welcome respite. persuade his international partners. people in the fire zones in southern friend and foe. that they should do and eastern australia finally got what they had wanted for weeks. what he's urging. nick, many thanks. a bit of a breather for these firefighters ahead of hotter weather let's go straight to washington. so to come, when officials said the blazes would take off again. with that in mind, in terms of the the picture in the fishing town test for boris johnson, gary, of eden is very different
with that in mind, in terms of the test for borisjohnson, gary, let's talk about president trump, the fact from that on the weekend. that it's been confirmed now that this is what it looked like on saturday night. there are more troops, us marines, i believe on the way to the many people left. others stayed, seeking middle east, what is the picture there in washington today? well, the safety by the water. eden wharf became a makeshift president is not saying anything publicly today, although, this is evacuation centre when the fires his first day back at work. there is came close to this town. still some confusion about this people came here, they sheltered whole question of whether or not the in boats, in cars, and some us is planning to hit those cultural in the open air to be close to the water. we have a lull in the weather. sites in retaliation if the the temperatures and the winds have dropped, we have rain which many ukrainians —— iranians choose to hit people have been telling me they have been praying for, back, the secretary of state, mike but we know this is not going to last, authorities expect pompeo, indicating that the americans wouldn't do anything that worse conditions later in the week. was outside the law, and one of his senior advisers kelly and conway that has really been the story of these fires. saying something similar, but the there are more to come and people president has doubled down on that, are living in limbo. and of course, that raises serious some residents have left their homes, not problems for military commanders in knowing if they will be the field. should they be asked to there when they go back. do something which is illegal under chris and richard camped out international law, that is the onto the football grounds, problem following orders like that. well prepared, but unsure yes, some additional troops as well, and confused about what to do next. they were talking over the weekend i think everybody who is here about some marines being sent, would lie if they say
possibly around 2200 marines being they were not scared, if they were not anxious in regard to where they are going now. sent to the beach and on top of that basically, the uncertainty division of paratroopers that was as to what happens when the fire does come through, how fast is it already heading for the middle east. going to come, if the wind really bearin picks up and comes over that hill, already heading for the middle east. bear in mind, for a president who it will be coming like a fireball. said he was bringing troops home it isjust a waiting game. this would bring it up to around 20,000 troops in that theatre, if you like, since may. gary, thanks but we will get there, doesn't matter. very much again. that's the latest what are you waiting for? for there in washington. for it to stop. the labour party's ruling body has agreed the rules for the forthcoming leadership contest. and it is notjust people being nominations will close on january 13th. displaced because of the fires. people can pay £25 to become a registered supporter, in one neighbouring town, allowing them to vote in the leadership election, jimmy the koala bear has been taken but aren't classed as party members. from his usual home at the local animal sanctuary and is and the ballot will run from february 21st until april now in the back garden the 2nd, with the winner announced of his keeper's house. most of the animals here were evacuated ahead on april ath. of the fires, last weekend. some, likes these echidnas, five mps, emily thornberry, have already been brought back. jess phillips, sir keir starmer, they were all getting quite clive lewes and lisa nandy, have so far entered the running. agitated and stressed. shadow business secretary rebecca
