3:02 am
that time the rebels said that these offers were insincere and could not be trusted so certainly a lot of mistrust between both sides neither willing to be the first to lay down arms rather to from actually trying to slightly different picture is emerging we are hearing from the country from the prime minister mr alford baby that lines of communication have been opened and that they're hoping to intensify them they said that they are talking with the british the french and the americans to reach some kind of mutual settlement that would see the stopping of killings of civilians now we are hearing the same line coming out of london it has confirmed that in recent weeks it has been meeting in private with civil high ranking libyan officials we know that just on wednesday mohammed ismail who is a custody aide of gadhafi son was in and i'm going he was trying to organize what we understand some kind of exit strategy for the gadhafi family that landed insisting that any kind of deal any kind of settlement plan would have to include gadhafi himself stepping down we're hearing from doctors on the frontline and some

3:10 am
decision about libya it's not the basis for decisions about georgia about palestine about kosovo the question of who is held responsible and how is very much a strategic question it's not a legal question as it should be to boost its strategic aims. among other things georgia has dispatched one thousand troops to join allied forces in afghanistan and became the leading troop contributor relative to georgia's overall population of soundless and as this fox news interview shows almost unstoppable praise of the us is also believed to have played a role in the west's according saakashvili no matter what his crimes and there's like because of race numbers and their marriage protection and more we're getting repeat more throughout the religious history there's a fear of regulation in the bastards are you now as the world as the cleared a no fly zone over libya to stop could not feet many wonder why a no fly zone was never on the table when the georgian president launched

a steadily campaign or when israel bombed the gas it was three weeks in a row on the question for example of gaza where you had a blatant act of aggression clearly a violent massive violation of not only international human rights norms but work crimes crimes against humanity being created fourteen hundred people killed of whom more than nine hundred were civilians more than three hundred were children it was a horrific situation that went on for days the problem there is that israel is the protector protectorate of the united states and the u.s. is not going to allow anyone the united nations or anyone else to actually engage in a serious way in stopping that massacre you would think if a leader commits atrocities he would be treated like they could benefit denounced ben from travel but with results that's not the way politics works the georgian

to the site well them. in a big wealthy country and there are other ways to do it and yet the government just seems to just unwilling to make a move beyond what some direct threats in the electrical company are telling them. there are many problems not only that gratian well one of the curious questions is why are they staying at a facility that is subject to radioactivity just five hundred meters from the site there not to have been ways to bring in tents to go to temporary shelter say one kilometer or even two which we were in al of radioactivity that they're exposed to the issue is not so much what the electrical company did or didn't do but why the central government seems unwilling to step in and not. a scandalous and politically charged trial in georgia has ended with an israeli investor being sentenced to
3:15 am
seven years in jail twenty foods who is charged with bribery maintains that he was set up at a georgian government which shows the best hundred million dollars which explains. a roni fox is not only a major investor in georgia he's also an on record so in turkey a position combining economic development and all the rocker diplomacy he worked as an all trader in new york for some people teen years and yes see he invested huge amounts of cash in georgia back in the nineteen ninety s. now quite surprisingly for he managed to go last year he received an invitation to visit george air from the prime minister of the country himself now why surprisingly because for some fifteen years rooney folks has been demanding one hundred million dollars from georgia the money which georgia owes him for a bridge to grammont on construction of an oil pipeline back in the ninety's now of
3:16 am
course in london that year ruled that george indeed should pay the money back for georgian authorities but obviously didn't want to pay that money to any folks here believe that invitation is just a formality to put an end to this fifteen year old dispute well shortly before that visit in quite a rude sea hotel room and turkey there was an unofficial meeting between. the georgian authorities and there they reached a verbal agreement after drinking lots of cognac big roni folks would receive only seventy two million dollars instead of ninety eight with george owed him but on one critical condition in return he gives seven million dollars back now the agreement was reached only one formality was allowed to come over to georgia shake hands with the prime minister and finalize the deal now minutes after that happened in front of georgian t.v. cameras rony folks and his business associates were arrested for the question is
3:17 am
how did it come that a businessman who georgios that huge amount of cash and up in a prison now the lawyer of it was a trap. we wisely set out by. himself there was in fact the. cooperation of collaboration between four important ministries of the government and probably with the approval of the president of the ministry of finance the ministry of justice the ministry of the interior and the prime minister's office all of which came together with the two and broad issues fuchs was that informed through diplomatic channels that he would not be released until the arbitration award was waived now shortly after his business partner was over they were all for it runs and what could be called a ransom was put on the table now just that he could be released to eat here
3:18 am
admitted guilt and if he gave the money back but rooney fox refused to do either now we know that your agenda wants the world to believe that it's on a war against corruption and. personally wants to attract foreign investment into the country so of course he has saved this one hundred million dollars obviously but the question is how much will he lose because now foreign investors will have to think twice before bringing money into this country. well the controversial case may well deter other potential investors from doing business in a country that's according to. the leader of the conservative party of georgia. provides no it's a signal not only for israel businessmen but also i think for european or american businessmen if you are looking corruptible links with georgian dorothy came to do business in georgia the same signal was i think it was four years ago the. resource only in the market of stories of who is it was rated right who is supposed if you.
