12:05 pm
account looks next to the american way of dealing with the region's booming corruption. both u.s. and afghan officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to the new york times and said that for many years the cia had paid tens of millions of dollars in what they say was ghost money to the office of president karzai the afghan government has received billions of dollars of u.s. taxpayers money but the officials say that the secret cash went to fuel corruption in the country the cia apparently delivers the cash every month in suitcases backpacks and plastic shopping bags much of the money goes to paying off warlords and politicians many of whom have ties to the drug trade and in some cases the taliban the result of that appears to be that the agency empowers the same that works that it's a law enforcement agents say they're trying to dismantle president karzai was asked about the goetia money you. get he basically dismissed the payment as no big deal
12:06 pm
saying those are monthly small amounts used as the cia declines to comment another u.s. official has been quoted as saying the biggest source of course was the united states afghan officials quoted in this new york times report said a number of senior officials in the afghan national security council or individually on the pair were true story with the administrative council mohamed. ali he was arrested in two thousand and ten in connection with the sprawling american led investigation that tied. ben financing and the opium trade president karzai heading released within hours and the cia then helped persuade the obama administration to back off its anti-corruption push possibly because they didn't want to see. the alleged corruption scheme because that would be a story of a dog chasing its tail in washington. when america's money of course comes from
12:07 pm
what is the world's biggest a friend. who will come in richard becker told me as long as well more americans fall into poverty. it's really amazing when you look at the cia operations in afghanistan which really began that in two thousand and one million one hundred seventy nine days he says they fired just apparition and some tire history was carried out in pairs thing and the billions and billions of dollars that have flowed and yet today in two thousand and thirteen afghanistan actually last so it really indicates what the corrupting influence that the cia interventionists head over all of these years and continues to have today and they're spending a vast sums of money in the us military for sure overall be over a trillion dollars and yet we have a candidate in the united states virtually half nearly forty percent of the
12:08 pm
population according to the government itself is now either living in poverty or as low income and the interest of the people face and the altar of militarism. well media reports say a lot of this ghost money for one of the better terms ending up in the wrong hands in kabul that it's getting into the hands of organized crime that's the vote that we've got on our website today r.t. dot com where do you think the cia's dirty cash is going to say well this is that normally you're a bit more split than this but by far the majority of the eighty percent think it's bribery used to achieve u.s. goals seven percent you can see there we can see off yourself. sick operation to correct the taliban six percent flooding terrorist with kind if it cost five percent multi-purpose eight healthy afghans you can have your say those good if you r.t. dot com of course. now
12:09 pm
it's like israel's alleged cache of nuclear arms is in the spotlight again egypt's withdrawal from the nonproliferation treaty talks in geneva on monday over a failure to plan for a middle east free of nuclear weapons now is clearly referring to israel it's a merged indeed that israel simply get its fifth submarine reportedly capable of carrying out launching nuclear missiles as to whether so jeremy called but he's a british m.p. also vice chairman of the campaign for nuclear disarmament skorgen hi there this move by egypt one of the rather that you think. absolutely huge i was in geneva last week for the nonproliferation treaty review conference and i listened with great interest to the opening statement by the gyptian ambassador and he made a very strong statement concerning egypt's wish to live in
12:10 pm
a nuclear weapons free middle east and the failure of the leadership of the n.p.t. to act on the nine hundred ninety five nation for a nuclear weapons free middle east the dilatory behavior toward setting up the helsinki conference which is to last december and never happened and is now a top venue fixed for the review of this conference was designed to include all nations in the region through the years where we could discuss the nuclear weapons . so article strike. seems to help with whom but we think one should have some respect for egypt in this because in one nine hundred eighty one when they joined the n.p.t. they then made the point that they want to live in a nuclear weapons free middle east and in the meantime it has got now over two hundred nuclear warheads and as you said in your opening piece apparently about to take delivery of a submarine system that could give them the means of delivery never mind land based that would have a sea based system as well it's neither confirmed nor denied as we know why hasn't it confirmed whatever it's got whatever nuclear weapons it got over the years why
12:11 pm
is it not coming clean about it. well they've never signed any of the treaties relating to disarmament saw nuclear weapons testing or anything else and they've never officially admitted it we first learned of the many suspicions people had about israel's nuclear facilities when the dimona reactor was developed to apparently produce weapons grade the raid. when mordechai vanunu told the rest of the world that israel was indeed developing nuclear weapons and mordechai vanunu spent nearly two decades in prison as a result of that including thirteen years in solitary confinement is still a must in israel as a result of telling the world the truth and i think that this shows that the usa continues to fund israel to a massive extent and israel without being a member of the n.p.t. appears to have almost a veto over its actions in the trying to develop
12:12 pm
a middle east free of nuclear weapons or we were approaching some sort of nuclear arms race starting up now that egypt's walked out of the talks. well if this is the terrible danger of the situation israel we know has nuclear weapons and has the land based system to deliver them could have a sea based system any country or region that has a nuclear power system turkey egypt saudi arabia all could develop their own nuclear weapons if they wish to and egypt. i hope does not develop nuclear weapons i hope nobody develops nuclear weapons but clearly the danger now is very nuclear arms race in the middle east with all the civil conflict that could bring about if ever they should need urgent action now particularly by the usa and the other four declared nuclear weapons states to take steps for their own disarmament but above all to hasty convene this middle east nuclear weapons conference what should israel
12:13 pm
be doing. israel should decommission its nuclear weapons join the n.p.t. and get on board with the rest of the world in trying to develop a nuclear when you put it another way what is really thinking what is the make israel do that is not going to do it unless it's pressured i guess well israel depends very heavily on trade the european union and military aid from the united states the european union the united states working together in a position to put the most enormous pressure on israel through sanctions or withdrawing aid or lift a lifting the trade agreement which also has a human rights course within it we need action urgently by those two key players in the situation because in france you time tonight screwed see. you're most welcome thank you europe's human rights court rules that ukraine acted illegally by jailing its former prime minister later in the program then we look at whether the decision could change anything incarceration that's coming up also coming up to medics he

the international landlord in the very heart of moscow. europe's latest unemployment figures are in the don't make good reading the rate went up across most of the european union in march according to euro stat and as you can see the figures are disappointing and rising by the year with spain and greece being the worst affected in greece in fact and i was twenty seven percent out of work spain is not fabiani the both of more than one in four people
12:16 pm
unemployed for young people is much worse the jobless rate for them is more than double the national figure is test for a seller's report why it takes more than just numbers to see the true extent of the damage. the unemployment rate in the years old has recently reached a record twelve percent of for those aged twenty five and below in countries like spain and greece that number is as high as more than fifty percent with very little signs of any economic improvement for those who are looking for a job that search is no longer just about trying to find work many are now trying to leave their home countries. like niccolo wriggles a biology graduate from italy now working in a show guillotine in brussels and the situation in italy was actually awful because the only thing i was able to get is a really short contract for like free mouth for six months with absolutely no possibility of growing out in an industry or in the laboratory anything
12:17 pm
most most of them were totally unpaid because you can't really think of your future he says it wasn't a walk in the park in beijing either as many companies require a working knowledge of both french and dutch a barrier that may be hard to overcome that perhaps still more attractive for some the going back home rich. in two thousand and twelve. and the person the person they prefer young people to any great from italy grew up by thirty forty percent in two thousand and twelve i really don't know what will be into tools and information and it's not just the citizens feed the kids foreigners would come to europe to see new opportunities started their little business is building their lives and now will also change their minds fred's yana descent
12:18 pm
leaving greece and david all the way back to her native ecuador and while homesickness was the initial reason for the move she has no regrets about making that decision the six one cared also many foreigners decided to leave green. to countries like germany and switzerland but the greeks who stayed behind are saying that the situation is really difficult there when for instance servicemen he used to get one and a half thousand euros are now paid just one hundred m. our place has been open for two years even though it's still new i believe we have very good prospects for the future. some here she says just isn't possible the year right yeah to trent if you look at the figures in countries like ireland some people argue that a whole generation has left and perhaps for good you know who. i don't think so i rather stay here for than time does so sylvia i teen brussels. well the debt crisis engulfing europe maybe starting to literally cost lives to
12:19 pm
academics by the major studies say that as many as ten thousand people have committed suicide because of financial ruin they were stuck low from oxford universities research you the impact of austerity economics on public health he says politicians are risking more than they realize. what we've seen in studying recessions over the past century and the focus of the present crisis is that recessions hurts but when politicians respond with deep cuts so vital social supports they can turn those recessions legal in the worst case we see greeks after rate cuts marry up prevention budgets we saw a return outbreaks of the country and kept under control for the past four decades you seem to be in parachute spike by over two hundred percent at a time when h o b budget was cut similarly we've seen across europe austerity produced series of epidemics from suicide for on access to health care to hurt yourself or it's even if you are so far europe's leaders and denial about the human
12:20 pm
costs the stereo policies that pursued across your suit in north america but this question recently asked. what we need to do is take into account the help s. that i've also had austerity but right now like any other drug trial it would have been discontinued because of it to outside the us. well later this hour stacey make an admission to expose the fat cat skating factor at our expense. and. that's to come back to the present the arrest and imprisonment of ukraine's former promisingly to machine has been ruled illegal by the european court of human rights but judges dismissed tomasz and his complaint of physical mistreatment while in custody she said being seventy is for abuse in office so the gas deals with
12:21 pm
russia. as you have been following the case from the very beginning for us. defending lawyers of you to believe that this decision by the european court of human rights will see her walk free especially after her plea for parole last week was turned down there was a certain breath of hope when the one of the politicians of her ear of the former interior minister you listen to was released on a presidential pardon several weeks ago but this is not the case of too much because on the one hand the current ruling establishment here they want to be friends with the european union they are spying for european integration but on the other india of course see that tymoshenko is the biggest political enemy and it's far more comfortable for them to see her remain behind bars and they also have this one trick up their sleeve they can always say that look you are ruling the decision to convict her of seven years of prison as illegitimate but look there are two cases currently ongoing against sir one of them includes association to a murder of a deputy in nine hundred ninety six so it's interesting to see where it goes from
12:22 pm
here but we already have the reaction from the ruling party which said that this decision by the european court for human rights may not become valid grounds for releasing tymoshenko in fact this is been a bone of contention between europe and for some time we remember last year when you've hosted the football championship the euro two thousand and twelve some of the european officials boycotted the tournament because of the machine go and her case the question is whether a key if will be willing to kneel to this pressure by europe given the latest statements by the ruling party doesn't seem that this time it will bow down to the pressure as well. the the only one central russia where more than one hundred fifty people died in a fire almost four years ago has been sentenced to nearly ten years behind bars another six people were jailed for four years minimum each the chief fire inspector has been suspended from his job plays a lame horse my club impediment two thousand and nine began when fireworks were set off inside the overcrowded building flames then quickly took hold of the wicked

drafted into. and as fears grow over the health of inmates that have been destroyed for almost three months some forty medics arrived at the camp where one hundred detainees according to officials refusing food in protest at mistreatment and their indefinite detention prisoners lawyers though claim the number of hunger strikers is much more than twenty the protests as of last so much weight in the being force fed five need extra medical treatment most of the guantanamo detainees are being held without charge more than half of been cleared for transfer or release psychiatry professor terry cooper has told us he thinks no medical attention though will help the man unless u.s. authorities start addressing the demands. when one or two people go on a hunger strike it's an extreme act they're taking the risk of their life and they have a message that they want to deliver they exhausted all the possibilities to communicate and have a voice when one hundred people or twenty some people even go on a hunger strike you've got
