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 cannot miss lightish that surprised that he was captured alive if you very quickly ended up there is a definite return from diplomatic cakes are was spectacular hugs handshakes and kisses from the heads of countries which denounced him gadhafi is now silenced but the suspicion around those who laid out the welcome mat is far from buried i don't feel his little his gritty sequence with it but he shan't dealing with his constant and. it's all will go way over seriously think that this is the situation was fishing the probably grew up tricks that men actually were acutely it was jewish big brothers who were their interests then british prime minister tony blair was

acting regime worth over two million pounds to educate hundreds this 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 data even letting him pitch his tent in nearly safe palace that's currently bankrolling sarkozy's party to the presidency so says this man they one who could still tell all that of course he had 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. saif al 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 and now i think we're so huge that tony blair intervened for him to help him get his dodgy ph d. degree from the london school of economics when. degree apparently was plagiarized
2:12 pm
there's a lot of things that have gone on there so you know as a dark side get there he'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 that's keeping the western power players sweating after bennett partying london. they has agreed to ship out of libya by monday after the un decided to cancel the alliances mandate russia's envoy to the world body says he should now pave the way to an independent post gadaffi country. indeed a new chapter is being opened in libya. the libyan people will be able to take advantage of the new situation to build a new libya early. well the u.s. led alliance has been bombing libya since march and the u.n. resolution to protect civilians it carried out nearly ten thousand air strikes one of the last two which stopped the convoy carrying colonel gadhafi allowing him to
2:13 pm
be captured and then killed but the intervention doesn't end there is no proposing to head international operations in libya once nato pulls out there are claims it's already deployed hundreds of troops on a support mission to the country but that moves not been sanctioned by the u.n. which is yet to respond to katter's offer. you're watching r t from moscow coming up freedom of selective speech in georgia where media keeps a speaking of me being hounded out to seek asylum for the government like you say. next though the french president gunning for greece saying letting the beleaguered country join the euro was a mistake speaking after the emergency brussels summit nicolas sarkozy said greek membership of the currency clubs pushed europe to the brink e.u. leaders decided on thursday to have greece's private sector debt to one hundred billion euros after banks agreed to write off fifty percent of what they're owed european banks must also have a bigger cash pile to guard against any further crisis while the emergency bailout
2:14 pm
fund will be expanded to one trillion euros they hit the market europe's hoping to attract investment now from asia a bailout fund chief spain to china to try to persuade beijing to chip in on political scientist in paris told me this would seal china's position as an economic superpower if it happens. if greece goes now i mean in economically greece is a very small country it's only two point five percent of the economy and so on so europe could survive without greece but in terms of symbols it would be a disaster so they want to keep reese within the eurozone and within europe but europe instead decided it's still shortsighted because it's a stereotype programs for everyone and it's not going to solve the crisis in the long term if you ask the chinese to save europe. the chinese to become the new financial e.g. money power so this is something very serious and the whole thing the the plan not
2:15 pm
letting the central bank in europe function as a central bank the way it goes in the u.s. in japan or even in britain so you couple this not you don't have a central bank they can tell the markets we are in power we make decisions and at the same time you have it's there it's a program so it's a very very bad recipe and asking china to help europe first i don't think the chinese will do it for three they're not going to throw good money after bad just leave your of yours because they love europe if the chinese helped it would be. for their advantage. toward you worked 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 a hand on the shoulder saying the wrong things are things time pattern reports. recently those who make the news in georgia have been becoming the news john doe
2:16 pm
non-attachment 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. clear letty t.v. is a small station in the north of georgia john doe and his staff say it's mikhail saakashvili as government has pushed him to apply for asylum he says they're putting pressure on him because of his channel's 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 comments at all from officials when a government official gives a press conference reporters from other channels are allowed inside to do their job
2:17 pm
but to lead to reporters are denied entry we're clearly being discriminated against . the georgian government strenuously denies the claims but others doubt his sincerity some ground on the no attached bill is asylum request are published that the stunt but deadly serious and says the thought and author of these are after him just because of what the 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 clear letty has need of the resources nor the audience to seriously compete with large pro-government channels but john doe's sais he sure about the government's reasons. 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 nice
2:18 pm
