8:01 am
this is our day coming to you live from the russian capital i'm marina joshie welcome to the program now the trial of egypt's ousted president mohamed morsi has been adjourned until january next year the former leader has been charged with insider the killing of protesters in december last year hundreds of his supporters have been rallying outside the courthouse in cairo amid a heavy police presence are supposedly or was there for us. the atmosphere here in front of the police academy as you can hear is very very charged the proceedings adjourned a short time ago they will start again on january the eighth which to me is bell to tell you inside the court what actually happened there well as we've heard it has been adjourned until the eighth of january in about three months time and then purposive is for the lowest have a look at these enormous case files this is said to be his biggest find to six
8:02 am
thousand pages long and old i'm always concerned both do supposing most in his aides and those against him in the trial haven't had an opportunity to look at these 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 not on the location today was the first time that we've seen him which was the first time his lawyers have seen him what's important to know about this case what i learned today speaking of the different noise is that on the 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 has been carried out in quite a politicized way it was a scuffle between journalists and some of the the mostly supporters what was the atmosphere like inside the courtroom when he was equally is charged as soon as we saw the members of the missing brotherhood and the political aides all of mohamed morsi of course ahmed mostly in the south the whole place erupted into contrasting chunks missing by the head themselves mohamad mostly said they did not really
8:03 am
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 their one point a fight broke out between journalists and said no is the noise of mohamed morsi accused jealous of being paid by the state one journalist got up on to the side of the side to basically almost to his shoes it's annoying it was extremely charged it was very tense at the missing brotherhood kept repeating and mohamed morsi care beating he was. this is just a bit president this was a fake trial this was a political trial and that's really the biggest mystery needed to prevail in this court case needed to and 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 there are this some twenty five lawyers that operatives to pay to 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. muslim brotherhood
8:04 am
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. and you can follow bella true on twitter for all the latest updates from the egyptian capital she's got more details from the court hearing and the ongoing protests. the in the. the twenty lebanon gyptian revolution saw a long time army backed leader hosni mubarak step down followed by a year of political turmoil in june twenty twelve mohamed morsi became the country's first democratically elected president however his push for an islamist backed constitution sparks deadly unrest in december that year violence erupted again this summer and morsy protesters prompted the military to oust the islamist
8:05 am
leader followed by a vicious crackdown a muslim brotherhood supporters in which more than a thousand people were killed political analyst and journalist while iskandar believes the trial against a muslim brotherhood leader is part of a broader political clampdown on islamist ideology in egypt. all this is seems a bit like a vote for egypt another president another trial in less than three years and what we're seeing is a rerun of a politicized trial of course there are things that president. he 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 but with the intent of trying him is not really to a state of law or a democratic transition or or you know or any of this stuff the same time we're
8:06 am
seeing a lot of his. ministers that were part of it the interior ministers that served under him who have actually still protesters they are not being tried along with morsi and so therefore this is seems very very highly politicized in the hands of the people who want to see a lot of the muslim brotherhood behind bars. seventy human rights organizations from around the globe are sounding the alarm over the erosion of freedom in britain they have written an open letter to the u.k. prime minister blasting the government's response to surveillance leaks are further has more on the 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 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 at heathrow airport they also talk about the sustained pressure against
8:07 am
media organizations reporting the edward snowden leaks the guardian newspapers come . to mind back they had government officials actually enter their building and destroy the hard drives now i think a very interesting point that the lesson makes is over 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 u.k. now 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 harms the national security not simply enough for them to say that it will now coming up this week we're going see the heads of m i five m i six in d.c.
8:08 am
each key questioned in an open evidence session that's going to be broadcast by a public satellite leg 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. well us out more on this open letter to prime minister cameron was one of its authors thomas hughes from the article nineteen organization to fanning freedom of information and mr hughes thank you so much for joining us here on ars and to discuss this well as we can see this letter to minister david cameron is a global initiative why in your opinion have so many activists from around the world decided to join in. well i think many of the press freedom and freedom of expression organization internationally felt the same degree of concern that the u.k. a traditional. defender of freedom of expression should be eroding press freedoms like this. so what kind of reaction i mean what kind of response do you expect to
8:09 am
get from odd prime minister. well i'm not sure what the reaction will be from the u.k. government certainly we regardless of the reaction we will continue to pursue this we will continue to do our global that pussy around this issue and we will also continue from an article nineteen perspective to give input to the high court case obviously surrounding david miranda at the moment and also do a submission to the parliamentary committee that will be reviewing the guardian in the context of terrorism legislation. you know some officials say the leaking of classified data indeed jeopardizes national security to what extent do you agree or disagree with that. course national security is a very serious issue and there are permissible limits to freedom of expression and person freedoms according to national security and they are well prescribed in international law our concern is that the u.k.
8:10 am
government has simply gone way beyond what those normal prescribed limits are. and therefore the oversight and accountability of those actions is very much a question. well you know the chief of the u.k. spy asian. these will be testify expected i should say to testify in public this week what do you expect to hear from them what would you like them to say. probably more of the same i would have thought this very open ended argument that the mass surveillance that's taken place is crucial to national security without any kind of substance or significant evidence to support that and that the guardian . media besides what the guardian has somehow violated and undermines national security. intelligence officials in washington are all blaming the agencies for you know ordering these operations so is this is where the pot is
8:11 am
calling the kettle black i mean who is responsible in your opinion for this. responsibility lies with the government of oversee responsible for overseeing the actions of the security agencies and that's undeniable the way they react. possibly trying to cover a trial. possibly you know the internal discussions that are ongoing between the u.k. authorities and the security agencies are known to us but that's actually part of the point that's part of the interest that has been this overreach there is a lack of accountability transparency we need more public public wants us to these questions we need to know more about what's been going on. thomas used from the article ninety nine ization defending freedom of information thank you so much for talking to us here on our teaser. while cia contractor turned whistleblower edward snowden has released a manifesto calling on the world to uphold laws of values which limits surveillance

8:13 am
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 of the skeletons in their own cause it 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 amongst those fifty that say it snowed and should should come to should be allowed to come to germany is one that says one seemly 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.
