7:02 am
about three months time and then purpose of that is for the lowest have a look at these enormous case files this is said to be his biggest find to six thousand pages long and all the noise concerned both those opposing most in his aides and those against him in the trial haven't had an opportunity to look at those files yet so they need that time in addition most he hasn't actually had any access to his know if he's been kept since he was ousted incommunicado in an unknown location today was the first time that we've seen him it was the first time his lawyers have seen him so they meet these three months to have a look at it what's important to know about this case what i learned today speaking to the different noise is that there are grounds to charge him and the people there today on grounds of incitement to kill protesters and looking at the evidence it looks like they were definitely grounds for this case so it's not entirely political although obviously it's been carried out in quite a politicized way it was very charged in the courtroom as the different lawyers were basically shouting out and basically saying they needed more time to look at this very contentious case it's also very charged here outside there's some twenty
7:03 am
thousand security officers that have been deployed throughout the capital city and a short time ago there was a scuffle between journalists and some of the the mostly supporters what was the atmosphere like inside the courtroom when it was equally as charged as soon as we saw the members of the missing brotherhood and the political aides of mohammed morsi of course ahmed mostly in the south the whole place erupted into contrasting chance mr brotherhood themselves mohamad mostly said they did not really recognize this court they say that illegitimate and that the most he remains the president of egypt meanwhile those who are standing against him the legal teams against him were saying execution execution he must return to jail he was extremely raucous in that one point a fight broke out between journalists and said no is the lowest of mohamed morsy accused jealous of being paid by the state one journalist got up on to the side of the side and basically almost threw his shoes at a lawyer so it was extremely charged it was very tense at the missing brotherhood.
7:04 am
kept repeating and mohamed morsi care beats and he was a loser just a bit president this was a fake trial this was a political trial and that really the just missing needed to prevail in this court case needed to end as you say morsi keeps insisting that this is a fake trial which is the reason that he says he will be defending himself having said that though this some twenty five lawyers that optus a painting for the defense but only ten of them have actually been given access to take clients of course morsi is standing accused of inciting murder alongside fourteen muslim brotherhood supporters now there are nationwide protests that have been called full throughout the country there is concern that as the day progresses it could descend into violence with most seats lawyers saying that they will also only given some seven thousand pages of testimony a few days ago and that it is impossible to go through this this is widely being seen as bell says as a political trial of course tensions here running high we'll keep you updated back to the studio. and of course you can follow bell's twitter feed for all the very
7:05 am
latest updates from the egyptian capital she's got all the details from the board hearing as you just heard and the scene of ongoing protests. the in the. now the two thousand and eleven gyptian revolution solved long time army backed leader hosni mubarak step down followed by a year of political turmoil in june twenty more so became the country's first democratically elected president however his push for an islamist backed constitution sparked deadly unrest in december that same year violence erupted again this summer and to morsi protests prompted the military to oust the islamist leader followed by a vicious crackdown a muslim brotherhood supporters in which more than a sow's and people were killed political analyst and journalist was going door believes the trial is part of a. broader political clampdown on islamist ideology egypt. all this is seems
7:06 am
a bit like deja vu for egypt another president another trial in less than three years and what we're seeing is a rerun of a politicized trial course there are things that president morsi has done just like hosni mubarak has but i don't think that he's on trial. for the for the exact crimes that he's done or the reason he's being put on trial is because of is muslim brotherhood ideology and the way he ran the country with the intent of trying him is not really to state of law or democratic transition or or you or any of this stuff the same time we're seeing a lot of his. ministers that were part of it the interior ministers that served under him rabbi actually felt protesters they are not being tried along with morsi and so therefore this is seems very very highly politicized and the man of the
7:07 am
people who want to see a lot of the muslim brotherhood behind bars. now a day before the trial began a u.s. secretary of state john kerry met with addiction leaders in cairo and he's cold for fair transparent justice for all citizens in cross stop peter lavelle and his gas debate the role of washington place and the events unfolding in egypt. rejigging the middle east where the united states still maintains a hedge of monica this is what their ultimate goal is they don't really call kerry a care about the coloration of the regime as long as it plays into a security arrangement but washington can feel comfortable with and let's not forget tel aviv and riyadh. i think that's true i think ultimately the security that having a hedge money over the region. and stability whether that comes through democracy or through with or tearing regimes is ultimately the end game plan because the united states has too many interests in the region to allow it to fundamentally
7:08 am
opposed to those interests so when the united states acts it always does so with a view of you know what what how can how does this inform our counterterrorism policy how does its inform our counter-proliferation policy how does this inform our energy policy it's a rule of issues that comes to the fore with the united states there's and ultimately there's a massive conflict of interest problem that the united states has to deal with when it formulates its middle east policy. seventy human rights organizations from around the globe are sounding the alarm over the erosion of freedom in britain and they've written an open letter to the u.k. prime minister blasting the government's response to surveillance leaks are to sarah ferguson more on their appeal. well some very strong words for the prime minister there from those human rights organizations and they're fighting back against what they call the eroding a fundamental rights in the now let's take
7:09 am
a look over some of the main points that that letter raises and their concerns center around the use of terrorism legislation against david miranda when he was detained heathrow airport they also talk about the sustained pressure against media organizations reporting the edward snowden leaks the guardian newspapers come. to mind back they had government officials actually enter the building and destroy the hard drives now i think a very interesting point that the lesson makes is a for the potential violation of freedom of expression now this is the argument we hear the u.k. government use a lot when they're condemning the leaks being published that it's damaging national security in the in the letter it says that the protection of national security can be a legitimate reason for limiting the freedom of expression but and this is the really important point that governments must demonstrate that the expression actually
7:10 am
harms the national security not simply enough for them to say that it will now coming up this week we're going to see the heads of m i five m i six and t.c.h. key questioned in an open evidence session that's going to be broadcast by a public satellite link so this debate certainly not going away however much you can imagine u.k. government will be wishing it will right now and of course we'll be bringing you all those developments as they happen or cia contract returned whistleblower edward snowden has released a man of calling on the world to uphold the laws and values which limits reveal and protect human rights he also slammed the u.s. and u.k. spy agencies as the worst of sanders attacks appeared and a german magazine and was sent to the editors from moscow vi and creep the channel argues peter oliver has more on the weaker statement. the spy can't be allowed to
7:11 am
dictate our politics that's according to whistleblower edward snowden writing in the major german news weekly beagle he's put forward what he called his manifesto for truth and which he condemns the security agencies around the world that have set out to smear not only him but also those journalists that have published his articles in various publications around the world he also saying that we need to stop this kind of spying culture that is taken over it's all part of a major major set of articles about edward snowden in this in the german paper it comes on the back of their support for edward snowden here in germany and in a massive increase we've seen a group of over fifty senior public figures calling for him actually to be to be granted asylum here in germany now the article it does say that something that perhaps the current german government wouldn't support because suggesting that some
7:12 am
of the skeletons in their own closet could come out if there was any big investigation into just exactly what had gone on in terms of the n.s.a. spying program however among those fifty that say it snowden should should come to should be allowed to come to germany is one that says one senior former german politician say edward snowden has done a great service to the western world and now it's up to us to help him so huge support for snowden and he's laying out his ideas right here in the german press. edward snowden insists calls to reform intelligence gathering agencies prove he was justified in leaking classified data meanwhile the white house has rejected a plea for clemency saying he violated the law and should come back to the u.s. and say some justice lawmakers supported the decision but also had some sharp comments regarding awareness of an essay operations i think there's going to be
7:13 am
some best actor awards coming out of the white house this year and best supporting actor awards coming out of the european union. mike rogers they had the house intelligence committee claim snowden put the lives of u.s. soldiers in afghanistan at risk however the leaker supporters say his revelations have hardly done and damage and are leading to necessary reforms former and i five agent and a mashad is urging to decriminalize whistle blowing who is actually breaking the law here because all the ground that my agency say they are legally allowed to own that appear to be very. bad that we seeing in the last decade is the sheer technological scale of the spying industrial scale that by and the new technology has allowed this to happen and the lose which is supposed to be democratically. how we are spied on just not keeping up the twentieth century knows and now we're
