12:04 am
further investigation by un and it's calling for the un team to come back here to syria to continue its probe in order to determine who was responsible for the hostages here in the country political analyst him lucia says the western powers are cherry picking the date on syria to make all weapons and that persuading them to consider any evidence of rival culpability is a difficult task. naturally the report was not meant to point fingers at anyone but the fact that it ignored certain elements and the investigation that are crucial to finding out who is using chemical weapons in syria is itself highly problematic and behind the medical the united states has been arc think partly selectively and using double standards and dealing with different cases and different countries for example. for parking al qaida and mali
12:05 am
but at the supporting al qaida in syria so the weight of russia the international weight of russia in the security council will learned more credibility to this that would otherwise be ignored by the united states britain and france so the point is not only to have advance the point is to be able to have that evidence. and study it and taken into consideration. meanwhile syria's president has said he's committed to chemical disarmament but that the process will take at least a year and cost around a billion dollars assad made his latest comments in an interview with fox news the highlights are vailable on our website at r.t. dot com. cities across greece have seen violent clashes following the death of an anti fascist activist who was stabbed to death by

12:07 am
ways were blocked in. it was very hard to breathe at one point they've been throwing around tear gas and of course the smoke is the and the wind is making it get in everyone's faces that some part helped clear the crowd i think the baton and sort of the the heavy. use of tear gas definitely help clear the situation but quite tense and we can't quite figure out where to go and how to leave to be honest you have some folks back there i don't know if you can see with the camera fire still lit with demonstrators hurling rocks in the distance but the police have advanced and it does seem like they're securing the area now this smoke right here if we can pan to it. that's tear gas so we're actually going to move away we don't really have. a safe safe area to go to where effectively stuck between the. protesters behind us and the ones who are sitting in front of us who are who are throwing anything they can get their hands on really people had come out here to this neighborhood to commemorate the death of a young man a young hip hop artist

if. those things. when it comes to financial troubles that austerity mats is never lost for it's the latest episode of the consular report property bubble that appears to be building up in the u.k. . later this hour but here's a quick preview. this is decorous economics what we can't build waxwings big enough to fly closest to the sun fast enough because we can't crash soon enough because then we can't get our bailout from the taxpayers who then be asked to suffer austerity again remember there's two things going on there is a wealth transfer of the public funds to a few private speculators and then there's the essentially extermination of the poor in this country and other countries will be left to rot on the sidewalk and bleed to death but that's the plan.

12:14 am
committed during the country's twenty eleven civil war the process is taking place in tripoli as libya has defied numerous requests from the international criminal court to hand side eve over to the hague there are jesus says they will ensure a fair trial but as argue his policy reports many doubt that promise. twenty eight members of the former libyan regime are facing trial among them abdullah senussi who was the former intelligence chief of the libyan leader moammar gadhafi as well as safe islam who was the heir apparent and also the only gadhafi son to be held in custody now the charges they are facing include murder inciting rape and kidnapping used as well as forming armed groups in violation of the norm the libyan authorities are insisting that the men will get a fair trial but human rights groups as well as many in the international community believe that this is not going to happen that the authorities are actually simply incapable of being able to do this since the capture of the men in the hague has
12:15 am
repeatedly castigated the libyan authorities for not handing them over to face who crimes as well as crimes against humanity if the trial and when this trial goes ahead in libya it is in direct defiance of international criminal court rulings and the court can complain to the united nations security council for what is interesting is that it was the libyan rebels themselves before they came to government and with the forefront of calling for the united nations to order the international criminal court to action and this is what many analysts are saying when the rebels were fighting the gadhafi regime they were very quick to curry favor with the international community to call for the gadhafi family to be put on trial at the hague but no sooner do they themselves come into power then they're turning their backs on the very same community that they were cooperating with very few people believe that safe will get a fair trial this case is a really taken
12:16 am
a very long time and also the fact that they're not prepared to hand him over to the hague does suggest that old scores with the gadhafi family are being settled this is being called the trial of the same cheery but even those who are trying to organize it on capable of doing so poorly r.t. to level of let's take a look at the. international criminal court's pursuit of saif al islam since the start of the libyan revolution in february of two thousand and eleven now six months into the unrest the i.c.c. issued an arrest warrant for both colonel gadhafi as well as his son citing evidence of a crimes against humanity committed against political opponents now the war in libya and with the brutal death of moammar gadhafi at the hands of rebels in october of two thousand and eleven but no investigation of their trial into the killing had followed now the i.c.c. then started informal talks with saif al islam urging him to hand himself over to
12:17 am
the hague over fears he would share the stage of his father but then however saif was captured by libyan authorities while trying to leave the country in november of two thousand and eleven upon that shortly afterwards the government announced that hew would go on trial for war crimes and in tripoli rejecting the isis these calls are for his handover saying it has no jurisdiction shortly after all the government announces he will go on trial for war crimes in tripoli and in june international criminal court of appeals were detained by libyan rebels are for several weeks after visiting saif islam suspect in them inquired conspiring against the state now in since that moment save hadn't seen a single lawyer and that in the end of may and the i.c.c. has rejected tripoli. trial gadhafi and demand his hand over.
12:18 am
right of course now earlier my colleague andrew farmer he spoke aladdin mug rajarhat a member of the libyan general national congress who says that the country has every right to try gadhafi son without foreign interference. he's a libyan all the crimes on the charges against him being proud are committed in libya and every libyan believes that he should be tried in libya none of the none of the crimes that he's been charged with are committed outside libya so there's no reason whatsoever. to try him outside libya and the demand of all the libyans why do you think this being such a bad. try him why the president the president is not we as a libyan who have had their pollution in two thousand and eleven we don't have
