bird lavabit of parliamentary polls sees the highest turnout average while the haze of uncertainty still powers over the election with authorities slow to deliver their results. no way out germany's angela merkel admits europe's debt crisis here to stay as leaders in their hopes on yet another last minute deal to stave off financial meltdown. and a legal loophole in the u.k. allows thousands of foreign criminals to stay in the country convicted rapists murderers and killer files music to skate just pundits and to protection.
this is already coming to you live from moscow nine am here on marina joshie welcome egyptian officials say turnout for the opening round of parliamentary elections has been the highest ever in the country quote since the pharoahs the announcement follows a two day delay in publishing and the result still failed to paint a full picture where the vast majority of candidates now set to go into a runoff artie's falsely or sums up the latest from the polls. the latest we've heard from the electoral commission is that both the turnout was at sixty two percent this means that some eight and a half million egyptians turned out across the ballots and while this figure is high it is still short of the expected seventy percent voter turnout that was earlier predicted not each voter cost three ballots who were for individual candidates and one was for political party as far as individual candidates goes
here no candidate has an outright majority which means that many of them will have a runoff mixed week when it came time for the head of the electoral commission to announce how the political parties are done he simply said to close him he said he had run out of gas and he called a press conference to an immediate end at this stage though we are hearing preliminary suggestions we have been receiving leaks that do put the muslim brotherhood political party the freedom and justice party post position in second position is the ultra conservative the leftist party i'll move now this party has indicated that it stands to push for stricter religious codes and then in third position is a coalition of egyptian liberal parties who are calling themselves the egyptian bloc not if indeed the strain continues because remember of course that this is just the first phase of what will be a three phase election only for the lower houses of parliament and only after that
will be an election for the after house of parliament but indeed if this trend continues it does give the religious parties a huge mandate by which to govern the country there are those critical questions that have not yet been answered and these are just how much power this new parliament will have and indeed just how much power the army is willing to hand over the new egypt prime minister kemal guns already has started naming his new cabinet but included in that naming is at least a dozen ministers from the previous government who will be holding the same positions. included in this is the same foreign minister the same information minister and we're now hearing from egypt state television that the full cabinet will be named on saturday that's just reinforces what people here in tough history have been saying from the beginning and that is that the army if you're not serious about handing over power that this appointment all come all guns or if it was just merely window dressing that we're seeing much of the same mains and players in the new government despite the fact that gun story has stayed that he has powers to act
independently and that he would not have taken this position if he did not believe in the army's commitment to hand over power but so i think here in town here where people are hearing that it is very much the same remains that are going to be part of this new government it just reinforces what they've been saying all along and that is that the army needs to step down and step down immediately. and paul is also helping you keep your finger on the pulse of the latest developments in egypt through her twitter stream and one of her latest tweets just as activists and offer your are certain things will heat up again soon it's only a momentary law action. and
human rights council has passed a resolution condemning gross violations in syria the decision is based on a recent report detailing abuses during the government crackdown on protesters and urges the broader un to take appropriate action a special investigator has also been appointed to monitor how the government copes was a young arrest in the country russia and. china were among those who voted against the resolution moscow says the u.n. report which led to the vote was unfairly attacked and the international community is hearing only biased accounts of what's happening in the country. what we don't understand is why if that can be done in yemen that cannot apply to serious imo from the outset the message which has been set up from some quarters capitals is there is no way they can help those who go into dialogue they should
stop it immediately that there is no future in the arab league initiative we believe that this is something very counterproductive and this is something which has exacerbated the situation in syria but what can be a general attitude and principle is that the international community is not there to smell blood and to confrontation but the international community is there to prevent further blood ship to encourage it encouraged this is what the united nations is about this is what the security council is about. the majority of u.n. representative say there is more than enough evidence to leave no doubt about brutality is by syrian authorities against protesters but some critics believe moscow have grounds to question the international take on events. a moscow israelites question the conclusions in this report this report needs to be approached in the same way that a court of rule would approach it with impartiality each statement needs to be on
the lowest and also in particular the subsidies need to be scrutinized i mean it's worth this report so you've got the testimonies placed on members of the syrian opposition people who are interested in interest in seeing that they're known for president assad so i don't believe any significant should be attached to these findings and of course it's not the first time we've seen such reports we saw such reports regarding the phone we saw them were called in iraq we saw them look on their own libya and they've all been proved to be completely incorrect. also coming up later in the program for you nailed down to the wall decades after the saudis and the labs and the pressure on the russian speaking minority you know stonier shows no signs of easing community members say they will never give up the five for their basic rights. what do you make of the birth egyptian election for the revolution. what do you think it be important that it be about.
what i do find that. over the global holiday getaway the resident asks people to weigh out their seasonal preferences. in the u.k. even a murder may not provide enough of a reason to deport a foreign criminal a loophole in the law has turned the country into an asylum for many immigrants who have committed serious offenses argues laura smith explains. the right to a family life is not an absolute right and it must not be used to drive a coach and horses through our immigration system. article eight an innocuous sounding element in the human rights act but which means having children can stop illegal immigrants being kicked out of britain no matter what they've done paul houston knows what it's like to have your family destroyed his twelve year old
daughter amy was killed in a hit and run by an iraqi who was banned from driving cross in iraq mr abraham the driver of a car the wrong or. current on the corridor on the apollo the car and. she became trapped under the wheels of the car. and. he basically for the scene unless it to die trapped under the wheels in the water car amy's killer asso mohammed ibrahim already had a string of minor convictions even before he moved her down and fled but because he subsequently fathered two children by a british woman he still lives in the u.k. it's article eight that keeps him here oddly enough it was one of these that catapulted the issue into the headlines the home secretary seizing on claims that an illegal bolivian was allowed to stay in this country because of the emotional trauma of separating him from his pets not quite true but it got people talking and
noticing much more serious cases including a rapist who successfully argued asylum over his social life and a killer who lived with his parents. in may this year it was revealed that nearly four thousand foreign criminals was set free from detention centers because it was decided they couldn't be deported within a reasonable time among them dozens of rapists murderers and paedophiles separately last year nearly six hundred people use the human rights act to avoid deportation the vast majority citing the rights to a private and family life in the case of amy's killer a series of bungles and delays by the authorities meant that by the time eva haim came up for deportation he appeared to have created a family despite flimsy evidence about his parenting intentions he was allowed to stay yet human rights campaigners argue britain's status as
a haven for the persecuted is sacred these are very hard back hundreds of years they're they're embedded in international law you know that we have two options in the aftermath of the second world war so make sure that we always in a range is over in society and those principles that we hope to hear through a grieving father like pull that's missing the point what we have a special we articulate human rights facts we have criminals terrorists. birders. drug bailiffs or use and human rights acts as a shield to hide behind and. contra. genuine asylum seekers and also coming out but what we don't want to say is we don't see people abuse and what's wrong i think not what needs to be addressed amy was paul's only child he now lives alone spending his time campaigning against
article eight and wondering why the rights of his daughter's immigrant killer outweigh his own laura smith r.t. . and don't forget our web site r t dot com where the latest news comments and videos are just a click away here's some of what's waiting online for you. if your eyes are no longer a threat to russia as it launches a space defense troops but their main focus remains on earth with an all seeing eye turn to u.s. missile defense system europe. and ahead of the upcoming parliamentary elections in russia and we invite you to try your a lot of debate online game your pals to power starts here on our. noses. the people prepare to speak. in-depth coverage of this one the hearts and minds of the russian. military.
the euro crisis is here to stay and there's no way around it so says german chancellor angela merkel warning that it will take years to solve the blogs desperate economic woes her words and co a growing desperation in the e.u. as weaker economies struggle against looming defaults amid an unprecedented credit squeeze earlier the european central bank flooded the blogs financial institutions with extra cash which are themselves being starved of money by green investors leaders now pin their hopes on a last minute deal at euro zone summit next week and the hope the germany will put its economy on the line to bailout the e.u. but you hagen from the european school of management and technology believes that will only happen if they give up your sovereignty to berlin. the european nations have to face either they'd like to have the european currency and they had by definition requires in the end a fiscal union and that requires transfer of national sovereignty if there is
something that is too far for for some countries then i think it's logical to opt out of the euro structure i think that's what we now see is basically it's coming to the surface the problems of the creation of the euro as a currency and now they try to fix it and actually some countries have to face tough decisions on that in ways that have been unthinkable so far and i'm going back to its right to point out that there are no easy fixes for the for the current crisis meanwhile british pm david cameron has blasted the french and german plans for a bureaucratic make over saying their dreams of founding the e.u. wouldn't help the situation and according to robert oulds director of the bruges group policy center stance is also hypocritical david cameron was concentrating on the british economy in trying to get the economy moving within the united kingdom and for him to be calling for fiscal union is a great mistake the u.k.
is already contributed seven billion to our than nine billion to help with greece and this is costing the british taxpayer money that is deeply unfair and something that britain can't actually afford to do in the situation in britain is a great deal of debt in britain and the british government is having to borrow money from the financial markets on the one hand the british government is telling banks to loan out more money on the other hand the british economic policies but banks are not to be loaning out money to build up their reserves so there's a great deal of confusion at all levels not only within the european union but also within british economic policy. the u.s. employment rate has unemployment rate rather has reportedly dropped to thirty two month low of eight point six percent it provides a major boost in trust for barack obama in the presidential election run up however republicans were unimpressed saying the jobless rate is still higher than when obama took office and forecaster terrence landy thinks the democrats are just
spinning the numbers to their own advantage when you look at the real numbers in who got the jobs it's food stamp employees oh there were jobs created in retail you know those wonderful jobs we take people's money and you say have a nice day and there were no jobs in hospitality that's another word for cleaning up somebody who's rule all in there with jobs in health care you know working in nursing homes making sixty to fifty a week why that's why i'm after taxes you know so these are real jobs this is a plantation economy and the big law that no one's talking about as they pump up this week number you need a hundred twenty five thousand jobs a month a month just to account for the new people moving in to the economy and population growth so that leaves all the people that have lost all these jobs
since the great recession hit still out of work. as a global economic crisis rages on artie's financial guru mexico either continues his mission to expose the shadowy figures behind it this week he's got some revelations on who's manipulating the dark matter off fraudulent shares in the u.s. the full program is coming up in about fifteen minutes time but here's a quick preview. paulson is in the news read the quick headline from michelle block here treasury secretary henry paulson tipped off prominent hedge funds regarding fannie mae while telling the u.s. senate and the general public a different story yes i was right hank paulson. when we had a chance when thirty percent of corporate profits as the case of the u.s. or in britain thirty percent or higher i my calculations closer to sixty percent of
the corporate profits come from a corrupt banking sector run by capita dicaprio's like hank paulson you're not going to get any progress in jump starting your economy like the galaxy in the cosmos itself some speculate that the dark matter and dark energy is greater than the visible world that we live in this is true of the financial frauds on wall street the amount of frauds greater than what we see out of day to day basis hank paulson has got of like the einstein of fraud he's taken the entire concept of breaking the law and multiply it times a coefficient of his own corrupt soul he's shooting times. renowned for their uncompromising policies to banish all signs of soviet legacy stoning officials are pushing harder and harder on the country's still vast russian speaking minority a minority that's long been threatened with
a mother tongue band now plans to fight to the bitter and for language freedom and here's our alex here cesky. a russian speaking fisherman catches a magic fish it promises to fulfill all his wishes in a stone ian but he does not understand the language and he dumps it through this social ad urges the russian minority in a store nia to learn estonian in a rather amusing fashion the reality is no joke at all. old state officials are obliged to know the estonian language in the course of their work this is written in our language law it also applies to people working in the majority of public services. just like other post soviet baltic states estonia has its own language inspection the body which oversees how the language law is being observed at times laying it down quite harshly the language inspection has the legal right to conduct spontaneous checks on anyone working in any sphere and
should a person fail the language exam the body may then initiate the sacking of this employee human right activists say this has turned a language inspection into a punitive body. it is not that they have nothing to say it's just that they believe their voices are being silenced estonia's three hundred thousand strong russian minority has been protesting at what they describe as the language inquisition some of these people either lost their jobs or are on their threat of doing so because they are forbidden from speaking their native language soonish us through every so often cursed soviet power never applied and were stricken the languages the stoniest were free to educate in their language nowadays the authorities have almost banned the russian language from schools besides some russian communities don't have qualified teachers who can teach physics or chemistry in a stone ian in the latest twist five workers at an orphanage were fired for not
being able to speak a story into the children that's in a town where ninety six percent of the population are ethnic russians. and i don't want to sound rude but as long as we leave in this country we have to leave by the lord and i fired those people because they had been warned but did nothing. q when rights activists acknowledge the rule of the law but stressed that in the language case it is not applied properly because the law doesn't put any difference between where almost everyone sees russian as they're needed. language and other parts where most of the people speak a stone ian and with such disproportion we can talk of direct language discrimination and indirect ethnic discrimination because activists in another baltic states have been gathering signatures and holding a referendum to make russian the second state language and many say they have a strong chance of pushing it through a stone despite being criticized by amnesty international for its language policy
is adamant and it seems the russian minority would not catch the magic fish granting their wish anytime soon. r.t. reporting from thailand in a story. and that let's not take a look at some other stories from around the world one person has been killed at least two dozen wounded in clashes between riders and police in southern peru furious demonstrators blocked the pan-american highway protesting against expansion of a local prison the violence has flared up when police arrived at the scene to disperse the crowd and clear the way for vehicles if the country's second violent protest this week twenty were injured in peru snores in a demonstration against a mining project on tuesday. iranian diplomats expelled from the u.k. have arrived back home early saturday morning they were told to leave the country after aggressive protesters stormed british diplomatic compounds in tehran western officials blame iran's leadership for allegedly sanctioning the attacks chanting at nato slogans crowds of hard line students gathered at ron's air board to give the
