top stories on our team as nato packs up its libyan mission that helped kill colonel gadhafi his key son could go the whistle on peel's the last boss to bury if he gets a stay in court. let increase in it was a mistake the french president doesn't hold back in his beleaguered euros only puffery e.u. leaders signed off on another massive rescue deal and also this hour. well the dow is that in bird's biggest monthly gain in twenty four years experts still business of see the rally could be near. the bolshoi is back it's the day millions of bitter lovers have been waiting for as moscow's one part of the earth sets the stage for its first performance in six years after a massive refurbishment. the people who didn't get my golden ticket will still be able to watch the film and book life in the russian capital outside the full faith it will bring you all the latest information in the opening night.
just after five pm here in the russian capital this is r.t. now let's start colonel gadhafi is the most influential son saif al islam has flights and i share apparently looking to have himself over to the war crimes court prosecutors say they're holding indirect talks to bring him in but what's keeping western leaders are of us is that aside could then the spill the beans on the recent dog of the as they made with his father are better at explains. to some market jeffy was a tree much secrets which will supposedly be buried with him i think that there were tremendous relief all over capitol in western europe this is somebody who cut all sorts of deals keep. but the french were also doing
a great issue and the italians and to a certain extent the americans as well i think they did not want him put on trial for any reason and i am not messiter that surprised that he was captured alive if you very quickly ended up there could effie's return from diplomatic eight saw was spectacular hugs handshakes and kisses from the heads of countries which denounced him it half is now silenced but the suspicion around those who laid out the welcome mat is far from buried i don't feel that his gritty sequence with. the. dealing with him has cost efficiency of all will go away obviously because the business of the situation was fishing but probably grew road trips it may actually ironically it was jewish groups who were their interests then british prime minister tony blair was instrumental in give them peace rehabilitation
bringing him in from the cold in two thousand and seven that play didn't lead emptyhanded trade between them flourished so did the cozy relationship it was six more secret meetings off the player left off base his people denying they were about releasing the look at the basket on the granny or britain would lose its lucrative libyan deals i regret myself enormously that khadafi was put should he should have been said to the international criminal court put all the trial forced all it's a question through all the terrible things he did and if it garbage the contemporary world leaders or previous regimes leaders tough we need to go. watch this darby day with. some details of the murky dealings have already emerged claiming the reputation of one of britain's leading universities the london school of economics the greedy contracts the big that the regime worth over two million pounds. to educate hundreds these future civil servants the director was forced to
resign and now the university of tripoli is demanding the money back french leader nicolas sarkozy was never shy and greeting good data even letting him pitches a tent in the elise a palace apparently for bankrolling sarkozy's party to the presidency so says this man the one who could still tell all that was her go ahead sarkozy must give back the money he took from libya to finance his electoral campaign we funded it and we have all the details and are ready to reveal a. sign i get that the son and key right hand man reportedly ready to surrender to the war crimes court so you he's going to have low information and i think we're so used to tony blair intervening for him to help him get his dodgy ph d. degree from the london school of economics one. degree or probably was plagiarized as a lot of things have gone on so you knows about so i get their fees wanted to answer
for his own actions in libya is drawn out battle for control is what he could reveal about the diplomatic deals with his father is keeping the western power players are the bennett party london on their toes agreed to ship out of libya by monday after the un decided to cancel the alliance as mandated russia's envoy to the world body says there should pave the way to an independent a postcard country. indeed a new chapter is being. believed in. the libyan people will be able to take advantage of the new situation to build a new libya the. u.s. led alliance has been bombing libya since march under a u.n. resolution to protect civilians it carried out nearly ten thousand air strikes one of the last of which stopped a convoy carrying colonel gadhafi allowing him to be captured and killed but the intervention of those of their qatar is now proposing to head international
operations in libya once nato pulls out doha claims it's already deployed hundreds of troops on a support mission to the country that moves not sanctioned by the u.n. which is yet to respond to tar's are. all syrian opposition activists are urging protesters to rally for a no fly zone over the country twenty people reportedly killed by security forces in friday's anti-government protests with u.n. figures suggesting over three thousand have died since troubles began seven months ago political analyst jeff brown now from the stop the war coalition is joining us live mr brand the protesters a termination is still wrestling but there's still no added side to the trouble now if the no fly zone helped libyan step their way over gadhafi why do you think the world isn't considering a move for helping syrians if the marchese is indeed the suppose it girl. well i think for one thing it. was seen as opportunistic really is the weakest link and
the most productive link for him to mention. syria is seen as being much more problematic and that's the main reason that they haven't pushed to mention a quick answer do you think syria is next to the us if he had made it clear that they want assad gone and now colonel gadhafi. has been killed this is serious or. well i think for one thing you have to look at what they say if they really want to if they want to get rid of us then they would say much more clearly they are saying that his time is up it's either using words. quite muted compared to. what they could so they have i think in that sense they haven't quite they haven't quite decided. that they want to intervene but it's not it's in their interest why is that what's stopping them.
because clearly the syrian regime as much more. is much more firmly based in a way than the regime of war so it's much more problematic also there. syria is much more firmly entrenched in the arab world. clearly out on a limb and they could paint him as being. some kind of weirdo winslet. i think is keeping with this sort of political views in russia has promised to veto any action against syria but do you think the u.s. and its allies could make a move against assad's regime possibly without a u.n. mandate. recent experiences that they could i think that they wouldn't like to have obviously in the case of iraq shows that they did in fact libya also shows that they did because they simply go to resolution that say something they could latch on to and then they interpret it in exactly the way that they chose which was
that it was actually a mandate for them through. the libyan government out of existence which the resolution certainly didn't so in that sense they didn't even have u.n. backing in the case of libya so yes we have the examples of iraq and we have the example of libya and in fact we have the example of afghanistan because the original intervention in afghanistan there is no mention in any un resolution of afghanistan or the regime or whatever it was only later they got a u.n. resolution that supported the sending of foreign forces so we have all these precedents so yes it's it's entirely possible but i think it's it's less likely ok well let's turn to libya you mentioned it earlier and it was campaign as we had said ends in a few days but how do you think the entered leaders will manage to control disparate armed groups which put them in charge. it's not
a clear. quite a lot of people say that there will be some kind of civil war. there are people who seem knowledgeable beside you know that they can overcome it but clearly there are major factions i mean. there are what you might call these alarmists there are what you might call for my gadhafi supporters. there are independent sort of to sample misrata seems to be a kind of a lower unto itself from the forces associated with misrata seem to be alone for themselves so there is no unity to start from other than not some kind of opposition through. willingness to accept. as a guardian angel if you like there's no doubt there's nothing else to clearly hold people together so the danger is clearly that tank thanks very much for your thoughts our political allies jim brat the war coalition talk to us live from
london thanks again. and up ahead at this hour the freedom of selective speech where georgia where media sheep see speaking up means being hounded out to seek asylum by the government doesn't like what you say. the french president is gunning for greece saying let me the beleaguered country join the euro was quote a mistake well speaking out for the emergency brussels summit nicolas sarkozy said a greek membership of the currency club has pushed europe to the brink leaders decided on thursday to have greece's private sector debt to one hundred billion euros after banks agreed to write off fifty percent as what they're owed european banks must also have a bigger cash politic guard against another crisis body of urgency bail out and will be expanded to one trillion euros that is germany's got to dig deeper get as the biggest contributor to the bailout fund adding fuel to protests there against creating yet more debt parties for national public marks cars or says it will be one of the eurozone in deeper trouble. it's
a debt problem that they're going to cure by adding more debt that one trillion euros the president of the e.u. . has already said that they can leverage up to five trillion euros that will be in the line and so they're trying to solve a debt problem with more debt you're gehring team economic collapse by ending more debt and this is why this should and should be stopped in the next couple of months year so that you're going to be able to say that we staved off the task if you for two months but if you were truly interested in solving this problem greeks would default one hundred percent on their fraudulent debt they would contain their sovereignty and banks would be forced to deal with the bad loans that they may why we mollycoddling banks why are we giving them one set of laws and everyone else has a separate set of laws is because the i.m.f. and their banking friends have taken
a position above the sovereignty they these coteries they're not all like the. officials in there are dictating terms of these these people these countries you're good at seeing the look be fine it's a good test of thing by letting the charlatans pose these theories but adding debt to debt problems it's good to increase the building that's in c. that's tyrone because that's absurd and not only that it's going to collapse it doesn't work well now europe's got to find the money had its first stop china bailout fund she is trying to persuade beijing to help finance the huge euro rescue economists there see the e.u. having little choice but to turn to asia for help and they want to increase the size of the farm that march so we have to see how i think it will be involved green for the european market their major export the market of chinese of course china needs to worry about the possible default china needs to make sure that. we
lose money because of this turbulence in. european currency. and on the way we're at moscow's cultural hearth where the scene set for an epic opening the legendary bolshoi theatre finally makes a grand comeback after years of backstage drama to restore the iconic buildings it was former glory. george are works hard to maintain a positive image of a country that welcomes free speech and open minds but that's not the experience of local media there are many of whom feel a hand over their shoulder for saying quote the wrong things are reports. recently those who make the news in georgia have been becoming the news john doe none of the founder of an opposition t.v. station applied for french political asylum just days before nicolas sarkozy arrived on a visit but he was disappointed. i contacted the french embassy and i was sure my
problem would be resolved quickly but i was mistaken they didn't make an appointment and i've had no news from them if they don't contact me in the near future i'm determined to go to other embassies. clearly at e.t.v. is a small station in the north of georgia john doe and his staff say it's mikhail saakashvili his government that's pushed him to apply for asylum he says they're putting pressure on him because of his channels criticism of policy and for showing opposition views as well as those of the government or the body of the family we have to work in difficult conditions as we cannot get any comment at all from officials when a government official gives a press conference reporters from other channels are allowed inside to do their job but still it are reporters are denied entry who are clearly being discriminated against. the georgian government strenuously denies the claims and others doubt his sincerity sun browned john byrne attash police asylum request
a public that the stunt but deadly serious insistent with gotten all four of these are are to him because because of what he has channel. and something by the record in recent years he's not the only one in two thousand and nine the widow of former georgian president appealed to germany's angela merkel for asylum a numerous others have left the country korea letty has need of the resources and all the audience to seriously compete with large pro-government channels of john doe's ses he's sure about the government's reasons. for that. it's because we're an opposition station they want us to give in and work for them to promote their message but i can't stoop to that. and this is the symbolism of the frustration felt by mr nunn attash villi and his fellow opposition media a mock funeral lamenting as they put it the death of georgian free media.
now it's taken six years of refer to richmond delays drama and scandal but in a few hours moscow's legendary bolshoi theatre will bounce back into the limelight artists are for of is out as the red carpet unfolds ahead of tonight's show so are the opening ceremonies and exclusive events and of course every take it is sold out in advance so you're there but how about the rest of us how do you get to enjoy it . no one's going to be missing out on the extravagance though the excitement is the a feeling like we've already got some of the crowds gathering here outside the boat show it there to now be able to watch the performance inside on the big screen so we've got hair and it's also going to be cool cause life the new chief so everyone's going to be able to enjoy the performance and it really is going to be a night quite literally gilded in gold you've got the grace and the kids as the face the walls are arriving nowadays and the guest is taken from the red carpet to get inside and await the performances thoughts about seven pm most gay time is
going to be attended by the president with bed of his well in the shade very nice best the extremely spectacular we've been speaking to one of the conducts is the bolshoi about the significance of its reopening. the. song. so this song. is very one for the theater is one. of them from shore i would. offer the reopening of the bolshoi theater. truly. because. the cost of the. other poster to raising its person for the first time in six years is a very long and expensive restoration of the potion everyone extremely excited to
see what they need looks like well the performance is going to be like no just look on the guests and everyone watching expect from the show we actually has a sneak preview yesterday when we called sky watch the rehearsals we're not going to give too much away but the idea is that the focus is kind of a look through the ages as the polls show a productions there's lots of fragments from many of the shows. very very famous ones in the nine hundred fifty three production of prince eagle right through to the more modern productions such as the two thousand and one performance of take calls east swan lake starring the polish prima ballerina but. it really was the starting is going to be out of town during night at the historical context extremely appropriate as well because i think other night as to make a mark in the bolshoi history my colleague. takes a look back at what has made the bolshoi such an institution around the world.
the red and gold curtain will raise for the first time in six years at the latin very bolshoi theatre revealing a restoration that runs as the most meticulous and expensive in the theatres history and over seven hundred million dollars the restoration was directly supervised by the kremlin which sits nearby built in eighteen twenty five the theater of was almost destroyed by fire thirty years later it was bombed by the germans during world war two and was a political gathering place in some of your times. restoration has been painstaking for many reasons the blinds were set and meets shortly upon the closing of the theater in two thousand and five shocked engineers found wide cracks running through the walls of the building and foundations were used largely to dust actually the bolshoi theater and moments when the site workers only electrical
wiring was holding it out. indeed the building was in a catastrophic state and the last season before closing the theater we would need audiences to side entrances because we were afraid of the portable collapsing plus we wouldn't let people sit in the balconies it had to do with a theater hadn't seen reconstruction in one hundred fifty years until the office of the president took control of the project management it was a mad house with different departments issuing competing directives and working at cross purposes prosecutors opened a criminal investigation for possible and battlement saying the state had paid a contractor three times for the same work for a total of thirty one million dollars. no expense was spared paramount was that but theater of be recreated according to their original vision of the stars so no detail was considered too expansive for challenging hundreds of spruce wood panels
were imported from the austrian alps to replace those ripped out by the bolsheviks silk decorations were also repaid from scratch in a special workshop in a moscow one a straight and above all the original hammer and sickle was replaced with a double hard eagle the angle of the roman of dynasty which had pride of place over the stars box the first guests to officially visit the newly reopened period on its first night will be the russian president german chancellor angela merkel and the hands of the law scholar theater the vienna state oprah and common garden. that survived the russian revolution. in london. the core of the czarist time is dancing the audience again after a six year week. long awaited resurrection of the
bolshoi. and. we've got you a front row seat to the bolshoi skull opening and your take is that our team will bring it to you live before could not here's what else you can discover on line russia's amazing alaska by the pilot of a reindeer airliner on his jets front wheels were deployed saving the one hundred thirteen people on board. the police messed with the wrong guy a big part of the civil war that runs everything that anti wall street protests and the al his military buddies are moving again. l r t profiles tomorrow's technology in
a few minutes after we've caught up with the business knows its. thanks to learn a warm welcome to business r.t. cracks are beginning to appear in the global equities rally sentiment was given a significant lift by this week's proposals from e.u. leaders on combat seniors own debt crisis however as peter weston from out on suggests the a bullish attitude could prove to be short lived. given that a lot of clients are sitting on cash we could see a little bit of a continuation of this rally i think it's very weak in term terms foundation the sort of optimism that we've seen on the back of what happened in europe i think is very fragile because now what people would be doing is looking ahead and basically asking yourself what other countries come knocking on the door for any kind of haircut for example and then we're back to the same agenda again they're also as far as i understand a few issues regarding the facility increase that has not been decided yet so i
don't think we completely out of the woods for now that seems to be at the center and investors are voting with their money and this could maybe continue for a little bit but as i say it looks fragile to me. so there's a look at the figures we're seeing right now on the trading screens of oil is lower carrying its biggest weekly gate since march prices dropped one and a half percent of the japanese factory production declined four percent in september and this expected to decline further next week brant blend standing at one hundred ten dollars forty three cents light sweet is coming down one dollar eight cents for the. european markets are also correcting are to the previous sessions of rally u.s. futures the u.s. markets are about to open around four minutes time also looking negative but the dow is still heading for its best one in twenty four years banks are still showing a strong performance h.s.b.c.
