yes it's thought colonel gadhafi most influential son aside fall islam has fled tonight here and is looking to hand himself over to the war crimes court prosecutors say they're in talks to bring him in but what's keeping western leaders nervous is that saif could then spill the beans on the recent deals they've made with his father bennett explains. to some momo gadhafi was a man too much secrets which will supposedly be buried with him and i think that there were tremendous sighs of relief all over capitals in western europe this is somebody who cut all sorts of deals with the french but also the british 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 misled is that surprised that he was captured alive if you very quickly ended up dead return from diplomatic saul was spectacular hugs
handshakes and kisses from the heads of countries which denounced him get effie's now silenced but the suspicion around those who laid out the welcome mat is far from buried gadhafi has close to his grave to see with but the shooter dealing with him is constant and it. would go way over seriously because that is also the situation was fishing the proving cruel trick sit near a romantic lead to a situation they could never see were through veterans then british prime minister tony blair was instrumental in get definite rehabilitation in bringing him in from the cold in two thousand and seven to play didn't leave empty handed trade between flourished so did the cozy relationship there was six more secret meetings off the player left office his people denying they were about releasing them locally boma abdel baset al mcgraw he or britain would lose its lucrative libyan deals i regret
myself enormously that gadhafi was but should he should have been said to the international criminal court put all the trial and force to all its questions for all the terrible things he did and if it davidge viva contemporary world leaders or previous regimes leaders tough. we. walked in 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 agreed a contract to begin acting regime worth over two million pounds to educate hundreds of its 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 in greeting good daffyd even letting him pitches tend to nearly safe palace apparently for bankrolling sarkozy's path to the presidency so says this man
the one who could still tell you have never had 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 everything. seinfeld islam gadhafi son and key right hand man reportedly ready to surrender to the war crimes court so you've is going to have low information on that i think was so huge that tony blair intervened formed to help him get his dodgy ph d. degree from the london school of economics one. degree or apparently was plagiarized there's a lot of things that have gone on that so you knows about daffy's wanted to answer for his own actions in libya is drawn out battle for control but it's what he could reveal about the diplomatic deals with his father keeping the western power players sweating after bennett r.t. london. on their toes agreed to ship out of libya by monday after the un decided to
cancel the alliances that date russia's envoy to the world body says this should pave the way to an independent country. we hope that indeed a new chapter is being opened in libya and the libyan people will be able to take advantage of the new situation to build a new libya they desire. alliance has been a bombing libya since march under a un resolution to protect civilians it carried out nearly ten thousand air strikes one of the last of which voice carrying colonel gadhafi allowed him to be captured and killed but the intervention doesn't end there 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 the sanction by the u.s. which is yet to respond to protonix offer. and up ahead at this hour the freedom of selective speech we're in georgia where media feeds say speaking off means being
hounded out to seek asylum by the government doesn't like what you say. the french president is gunning for greece saying letting the beleaguered country join the euro was quote a mistake speaking after the emergency brussels summit. greek membership of the currency club has pushed europe to the brink leaders decided on thursday to have agreed to private sector debt to one hundred billion euros after banks agreed to write off fifty percent of what their own european banks must also have a bigger cash while to guard against another crisis while the emergency bailout fund will be expanded to one trillion euros it means germany's got to dig deep again as the biggest contributor to the bailout fund adding fuel to protests there again creating yet more debt arches for national pundits max kaiser says it will only love the euro zone 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 euro that will be a one and so they're trying to solve the debt problem with more debt you're guaranteeing economic collapse by ending more debt this is why this should be. stop it in the next couple of months your so you're going to be able to say that we staved off catastrophe for two months but if you were truly interested in solving this problem greeks would default on a percent on the 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 of any of these countries they're not elected
officials and if there are dictating terms to these these people these countries you're guaranteeing global financial catastrophe by letting the charlatans pose these theories that ending debt to a debt problem is good for increased ability that's insane that's tyrone a goal that's absurd and of not only that it's going to collapse it doesn't work on the europe's got to find the money hits first stop china the bailout fund trying to persuade beijing to help finance the huge year of rescue economists there see the e.u. having little choice but to turn to asia for help they want clean crisp the side of the phone next march so we have to seek out help i think china will be mobile some degree for the european market the major export the market of chinese of course china needs to worry about the possible default china needs to make sure that it doesn't lose money because of the turbulence in the.
european currency. and coming up later in the program a report on russia's wealthiest ten most wanted woman and why interpol could be asked to track down the wife of the disgraced ex mayor of moscow. now it's taken to six years of refurbishment delays drama and scandal but moscow's legendary bolshoi theater is finally bouncing back into the limelight along. side as the red carpet unfolds ahead of tonight's show. the opening ceremony of course an exclusive event we can see the activity there behind you getting more exciting i suppose and of course every ticket should or should have been sold out a months ago how do the rest of us get to enjoy it. while you can already see the crowds gathering outside the front of the potion. very able to watch for the exclusive. pictures from inside the theater. people taken to

a day. from the direct to speak. to the people who say he's giving them a few directions and point is telling them to remember to smile i'm sure though they need to remind us tonight because everyone said versus bill's nice a spectacular performance that is it's really been a long time coming but what they have to look forward to tonight is a kind of production through the ages of the bolshoi and there's loads of fragments of various famous productions from the one nine hundred fifty eight percent equal performance treats more recent ones such as tchaikovsky's swan lake performed in the bolshoi in the ninety thousand and one of the couple surprises in store as well as also a tribute from some of the big names that have the form to the bolshoi we're hearing from some of them at the moment on the big screens that just saying exactly what the bolshoi meant to ben describing how taking to the stage at the ocean really it is like no other stage other than the bolshoi really is in the hearts of those not
just the russian people but around the world as well it's a virgin ounds world renowned. his night people taking to the streets a very excited thinking to be a part of both sets to be a new phase in the boat show its history and as the opening got a night gets underway my colleague katrina has been taking a look at just what it is that makes the bolshoi such an institution. the red and gold curtain will raise for the first time in six years at the legendary bolshoi theatre preventing a restoration that ranks as the most meticulous and expensive in the theatres history at over seven hundred million dollars the restoration was directed 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 formed by the germans during world war two and was
a political gathering place in soviet times. restoration has been painstaking for many reasons the blinds were set and me shortly upon the closing of the theater in two thousand and five shocked and genius found wide cracks running through the walls of the building and foundations were used largely to dust actually the bolshoi theatre could collapse at any moment and the site workers only electrical wiring was holding it up. indeed the building was in a conscious tropic state and the last season before closing the theater we would admit audiences through side entrances because we were afraid of the portugal collapsing plus we wouldn't let people sit in the balconies it's hard to do without the 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 madhouse with different departments competing directives and working at cross purposes prosecutors opened
a criminal investigation for possible embezzlement 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 the theater of be recreated according to their original vision of the stars so no detail was considered too expansive for challenging hundreds of spools would panels were imported all strung out to replace those ripped out by the bolsheviks silk decorations were also rebated from scratch in a special workshop in a moscow one of st and above all the original hammer and sickle was replaced with a valuable how to eagle we amble of the ramana venus to which pride of place of a bizarre xbox the first guests to officially visit the newly reopened theater 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 covent garden.

marine at a wall street protest and now his military buddies are moving in joining the campaign. georgia 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 many of whom feel how their shoulder first saying quote the wrong things artie's time board reports. recently those who make the news in georgia have been becoming the news john doe nine a touch of the leader with 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 had no news from them if they don't contact me in the near future i'm determined to go to other embassies. tria letty t.v. is a small station in the north of georgia john doe and his staff say it's mikhail saakashvili as 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 pressure in opposition views as well as those of the government one of the he is the most we have to work in difficult conditions as we cannot get any comments at all from officials when a government official gives a press conference to reporters from other channels are allowed inside to do their job but to lead to reporters are denied entry we are clearly being discriminated against and the georgian government strenuously denies the claims but others doubt his sincerity sunburn john doe no attash believes asylum request are published that
he stunned but he's deadly serious consistent with jordan all four of these are after him just because of what he and his channel say and judging 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 nor the audience to seriously compete with a large pro-government channels but john doe's say's he's sure about the government's reasons. it's because we're in opposition. station they want us to give in and work for them to promote their message but i can't stoop to that. this is the symbolism of the frustration felt by mr billy and his fellow opposition media a mock funeral for the mentoring as they put it the death of georgian free media.
