in spanish newspapers that's designed to protect women leaving prostitutes seeing red. around the clock around the world this is all. in moscow opponents prime minister has cut short his holiday following the public release of the report on the plane crash which killed the country's president he'll hold talks with ministers on the interstate aviation committee's findings which blames inexperienced crew members bad weather and pressure. from passengers. brings us now the reaction to the findings. this is the biggest news story in poland today of course every single news channel devoting a lot of coverage to the story to the reaction of course reaction to the report
released by the committee has of course mixed some are saying that it is a truthful report and a necessary all be painful steps in relations between moscow and warsaw that it is a necessary step that will allow the two sides to close this tragic and painful chapter of their shared past and hopefully move on others of course including the former polish president lech kaczynski his brother are saying that the report is nothing but a joke that it is presenting the polish side with falsified data many here and poland do agree this report does accurately reflect the causes and the consequences and the reasons behind the tragic plane crash on april tenth. we did these reports exists this is a step closer to the next stage the circumstances that led to the tragedy.
i must admit that the russians are right again i don't want to agree with the russians but this is the truth of course you can look for guilt and blame someone else all this report of course was not only awaited in russia and in poland but also within the international community everybody of course waiting to see what the special committee would list as the causes for that tragic plane crash and admittedly a lot of the experts within the international community do seem to agree with the committee's findings some of them even going as far as to say that whatever of the circumstances be it tough weather conditions difficult airplanes a little preparation basically the bottom line according to some is the. i like it is his responsibility that plane and the people on board are the pilots responsibility and therefore whatever happens to those passengers and the plane
itself flies on the shoulders of the pilot there is no argument about who is in charge when the situation like that arises in the pilot is in charge and the facts speak for themselves but we should not go chasing after people to blame just because they we don't like the results and we've had numerous examples in the past of people. i have got to get into a certain place have got to land in a place that's happened in america many many times with business when the big boss is on board and the pilot feels that he's got to get the boss to the next important place it is understandable of course that many are not satisfied with the report specifically as it is a very emotional subject for most polish people therefore attempting to find other reasons and factors to blame than perhaps the pilots it is of course
a somewhat. dark factor of course blaming the dead for some for such a horrific tragedy but as my colleague in a cinelli now reports the understanding of such a tragedy and finding out exactly who is to blame and what has happened is never quite as straightforward as it might appear for the first time the last seconds are heard before polish president lech kaczynski plane crashed near smile now on securing all on board. the crew ignored warnings from the aircraft automated system to pull up and advice
from air traffic controllers to land at an alternate airport plus were inexperienced flying in bad weather the interstate aviation committee highlighted what they found to be the main causes behind the tragedy in their final report nursery my failure to make a timely decision to land at the reserve airport based on multiple recommendations about poor weather conditions at smolensk airport descending lower than the safe minimum height necessary to make a second landing attempt failure to react properly to its magic amounts those are the reasons which led to the tragic crash of the aircraft into the land and the death of those on board. the findings also claim passenger pressure on the crew to land as soon as possible played a vital role in the incident here is evidence the crew was afraid of disappointing someone if they didn't land. it's not clear whether the navigator was referring to the polish president or the
commander in chief of the air force who was in the cockpit and later alcohol found in his blind poland was not satisfied with the draft report compiled by the i.a.c. which found pilot error was to blame and insists various factors at play caused the accident but aviation experts have confidence in the findings my experience with the russian investigators has been very good they're very high quality organization that i believe that it was the investigation was generally carried out in accordance with the international civil aviation organization and team which is the international standard for accident investigation who did russia have a turbulent history and it was hoped politics one car of the investigation i think what the what the polish government wants to be able to present to the polish people is that this was not purely the fault of the polish crew
and that russia take some blame for it as well i don't think this is very much to do with the facts i think it's all to do with politics the case is far from closed as the next chapter to find those accountable for the tragedy is open and. the committee concluded that no single person can be blamed for the accident but now that the final investigation report has been delivered a criminal investigation can be launched and perhaps more light shed on the crash that killed the polish president his wife and most of the country's political elite and he's now a r t moscow. on the way for you this. more harm than good found out our charitable organization set up to find corruption is being accused of causing instability and acting in its own self interests. but story still to come first ravaged by an earthquake that claimed over two hundred thousand lives
a year ago haiti is still gripped by the after effects widespread homelessness and a cholera outbreak of brought the island to its knees and now washington has added insult to injury hundreds of patients will soon be deported from the u.s. to face a grim future back home report not reports. c.l.'s or for most american women can relate to janay montra built. a working wife and busy mother home with the kids while dad is at work we lay back we work hard so we can provide the best for our children but also there's crime our family our family their care what we make. for the future if the u.s. government gets its way to my own interests. and tone will become forever fatherless. engine a will enter the pool of single us mothers struggling to make ends meet after all the output of the home of the cell and maybe get a lot of media for help. at any moment jeanne montoursville the

month the obama administration quietly lifted the ban resuming deportations for those with criminal convictions even those like jean montoursville who paid his debt to society serving a living years behind bars for selling drugs in the eighty's he was released from prison in two thousand. and four. used to almost. you know. the very same day u.s. officials resumed deportations of haitian immigrants the state department issued a warning against non-essential travel to haiti alerting americans of continued high crime limited police presence a lot of medical care and a cholera outbreak an epidemic so bad the united nations has made a one hundred seventy four million dollar appeal to fight the outbreak but it's not
good it is now spread all the way across the country because as you know color is a contagious disease it's affected over one hundred thousand people so far. and over twenty five hundred people have perished from the disease. according to attorney sunita patel the deportations are a violation of the conventions against torture and the un declaration of human rights sending someone back to a situation where they are likely to die or or face situation where they are. facing the possibility of death is potentially a violation of our obligations under international law yet according to immigrations and customs enforcement up to seven hundred haitians with criminal records will be sent back this year. to a nation wracked by violence food shortages and disease
a prospect that brings a feeling of fear to this american family a family broken up not by divorce but by their own government. and obama who really needs to take a consideration a separation a family. because they believe children. and the lives of fathers like gene are you believe in danger if or when his home becomes haiti. our team new york. and while thousands of non governmental organizations have been set up to combat the problems in haiti some said to be cashing in on the country's misfortune the island is home to more n.g.o.s per capita than any other country in the world and carrying forward reports many washington based groups operating in poor countries are in fact pushing their own agendas all in the name of charity.
