11:01 am
over getting. this is our top story tonight in the trial of egypt's ousted president mohamed morsi has been adjourned until next january he's been charged with inciting the killing of protesters last december hundreds of the former leaders supporters have been rallying outside the courthouse in cairo amid a heavy police presence at his policy it was the first. the proceedings adjourned to show time because 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 to 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 mostly in his aides and those against him in the trial haven't had an opportunity to look at
11:02 am
these files yet so they need their time in addition most he hasn't actually had any access to his noise he's been kept since he was ousted incommunicado in an unknown location today was the first time that we've seen him which was the first time his lawyers have seen him i learned today speaking to the different noise there are grounds to charge him and the people there on grounds of entitlement to kill protesters and looking at the evidence it's not entirely political although obviously it's being carried out in quite a politicized way what was the atmosphere like inside the courtroom when he was equally as charged as soon as we saw the members of the missing brotherhood and the political aides of mohamed morsi and of course ahmed mostly himself the whole place erupted into contrasting chants the missing brotherhood themselves mohamad mostly said they do not want to 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 is extremely wrong because in their one point a fight broke out between journalists and said who is the lawyer of mohamed morsy
11:03 am
accused of genocide being paid by the state one journalist got up on to the side of the side and basically almost threw his shoes at the lawyer so it was extremely charged it was very tense at the mission brotherhood kept repeating and mohamed morsi care beating but he was alluded to this a bit president that this was a fake trial that this was a political trial and the really the just missing needed to prevail in this case needed to and as you say most he 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 there are some twenty five lawyers that are participating for the defense but only ten of them have actually been given access to the clients of course morsi is standing accused of inciting murder alongside thirteen and the muslim brotherhood supporters this is widely seen as a political trial after course tensions here are running high we'll keep you updated we will follow paul on twitter for all the latest updates from the egyptian capital of course as well. in the in the. on.
11:04 am
what's remind of socially of the time line the twenty eleven egyptian revolution saw a long time back leader hosni mubarak step down followed by a year of political turmoil in june two thousand and twelve mohamed morsi became the country's first democratically elected president whoever is pushed for islam is about constitution spot deadly unrest in december of that same year following it through violence erupted again this summer and he morsi protests prompted the military to oust the is misleading followed by the vicious crackdown on the muslim brotherhood supporters in which more than a thousand were killed to discuss the situation in egypt now let's talk to mohammed solo from the april sixth youth movement he's a political he's a member of a political activist group thanks for being with us sir is this a legitimate case an illegitimate trial that's happening here or do you think not what is your thought on it. excuse me can you repeat the question please
11:05 am
yes is it a fair or an unfair trial the whole case. whoa there are or there are political aspects for this trial. justice should be in devise a bill. during the trial of mubarak for. with the same raises more or less we saw the interior his interior minister next to him in the cage but today we didn't see any officials who can also be responsible for the bloodshed that took place in the. clashes but we didn't see any of them in the cage next to morsi so it appears that this trial has its political aspect of i suppose the reason being morsi was in charge of the times we should have known what was happening no.
11:06 am
can you repeat the question please yes i guess the reason why it was just morsi standing there in the dark was because the reason is that morsi was in charge at the time and that's what the authorities are saying therefore he is responsible for what went on. yes. maybe he is responsible but i came back i cannot predict the judgment so i will leave. the court to decide was who was responsible or not but. there are officials who were also responsible for this a curator of the egyptians. are responsible is. responsible for security in egypt. and in cairo who must also be trained for. the responsibility on the
11:07 am
clashes and all the bloodshed that took place around the presidential palace ok frank if you thought. activist groups. seven human rights organizations around the globe are sounding the alarm over the erosion of freedom in britain they've written an open letter indeed to the u.k. prime minister blasting the government's response to surveillance leaks. as 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 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 media organizations reporting the edward snowden leaks the guardian newspapers come
11:08 am
. 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. there are permissible limits to freedom of expression and person freedoms according to national security and there will prescribed in international law our concern is that the u.k. government has simply gone way beyond what those normal prescribed limits are 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
11:09 am
now coming up this week we're going see the heads of m i five m i six in t.c.h. 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. so they can try to turn will supply edward snowden has released a manifesto calling on the world to uphold laws and values which limits surveillance and protect human rights he also slammed the u.s. and u.k. spy agencies as the worst offenders the text appeared in a german magazine it was sent to the editors from moscow viral encrypted channel. more of the leakers statement. the spy can't be allowed to dictate our politics that's according to whistleblower edward snowden writing in the major german news weekly beagle he's put forward what he calls his manifesto for truth and which he condemns the security agencies around the world that have set out to smear not only
11:10 am
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 it 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 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
11:11 am
come to should be allowed to come to germany is one that says one senior former german politician saying 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. correspondent berlin there what edward snowden insists calls to reform intelligence gathering agencies prove he was justified in leaking classified data meantime to the white house has rejected any idea of clemency saying he violated the law and should come back to the u.s. and face justice lawmakers supported the decision but also some sharp comments regarding awareness of and i say operations i think there's going to be some best actor awards coming out of the white house this year and best supporting actor awards coming out of the european union. as the head of the house intelligence committee claims snowden put the lives of u.s. soldiers in afghanistan at risk however the leakers supporters say his revelations

11:14 am
the news today. again flared up. these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada. corporations are today. again the province in eastern libya now wants to go it alone citing a weak central government to stick lead itself an autonomous region indeed the area's home to sixty percent of the country's all production has been blocking supplies since the summer no tripoli's rejected a declaration by the government or so far failed to appease the rebels it's got to speed on this power phones of london analysts an expert on the middle east other fellow bold aspirations there will it be able to achieve their goals and what are the implications if they do i will let the implications will be the
11:15 am
end of a current libya though it is a very big is a ray of the moment libya's a state but we still keep the idea that libya is a single state united with a central government if this province will break away evidently the concept of libya will have to change and move possibly to a sort of a federation of the three units that compose it see the nikkei and then to pull it out here. or eventually if this is not supported this will need a lot of support to function if it is not supported it may break apart altogether and so there will be no more libya so it is a realistic prospect going back to the first part of the question is it likely to happen do you think. well feelings are moving towards that direction and the central government in tripoli is not strong enough by itself to impose its
11:16 am
rule all over the country so the reality on the ground is that there are more than one libya today and we have to feel that this means that they signed an agreement to maintain the composition of the various entities within a common libya or if the very way altogether certainly in the syrian i can't area they're all or. forces that are intervening from outside of libya so it wouldn't be surprised if the area i would start looking east and southeast. if i want to hear if a history is repeating yourself this region was the revolution that toppled gadhafi in the first place the people there now still clearly dissatisfied with the current government can there and give me a page that all what what can the government do is it prepared to appease the many shape or form was the issue of.
11:17 am
independence of syria nika is a longstanding issue i mean since world war two that is being claimed as an independent province it has been forced to be within the. structure of libya in the colonial post-colonial rule and then in the gadhafi ruling. nowadays the central government is not strong enough we have seen what happened. some weeks ago i mean it's libya is really a total mess at the moment of course is here is holding the cards aside it's under sixty percent of the oil production there clearly it's got a big hold on the government and how much worse could it get for tripoli. how much worse it depends very much by the inter-tribal relations we have to remember that there are about two hundred forty tribes in the bia and tribes are very important for the running of the territory so it's not just
11:18 am
a sort of. remanded feel like we can imagine from the west i mean tribes there they count they control people in the territory it depends how much they bargain among themselves but it may also end up that they fight each other i mean this is very difficult to predict it depends also by which support from outside this new independent unit would. fire people close on it thanks for your input as well part of reform there from brussels pre-shared. tens of thousands of iranians are gathered outside the former u.s. embassy in tehran venting their anger at president rouhani this initiative to mend relations with washington rarely comes despite a statement from the supreme leader ayatollah khomeini voicing his support for the diplomatic efforts aimed at ending the long running international standoff over iran's nuclear ambitions a sign of honeys faced criticism from hardline opponents who say iran should not be

thousand dollars are up for grabs for the winner there will be a prize for the best idea to mark death of america which will renew the concept of death to america because of the arrogance of america the message is clear for as long as the us policies are hostile to us we will continue to use the slogan. well the slogan first came to prominence during the one nine hundred seventy nine iranian revolution when the u.s. backed government was overthrown and since then it's been widely used by critics of washington those critics now fear a hollies willingness to reengage with the u.s. could undermine the revolution they also see no reason to start diplomacy with a country that for years has portrayed iran as the enemy and subject of the country to harsh economic sanctions over its nuclear program states like the and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil this administration has systematically
11:21 am
imposed the toughest sanctions on iraq on iran ever the united states is not going to lift the sanctions until it is clear that a very very file of all accountable transparent process is in place despite efforts by the us government to suggest these sanctions aren't affecting the general population food clothes and even basic medicines have rocketed in price in recent years on the leadership's attempt to engage with washington has led to the american slogans and banners appearing all over tehran in recent weeks with rouhani demanding many be taken down and with talks over iran's nuclear program looming large later this week it's not just the international community president rouhani has to convince police got r.t. while the sanctions against iran have been forced by the european union the united states and many other powers to the u.n. security council passed several resolutions adding to the measures which include bans on heavy arms supplies or nuclear technology as well these restrictions range

a statement by the top u.s. negotiator wendy sherman dad the u.s. has not offered any tangible sanctions relief to iran the last negotiation round in geneva and that should be very disheartening to many iranians who are looking for. concrete tangible signs of good faith to adina on by the united states cover the topic story so my online at r.t. the culmination activists are fighting back against america's global online surveillance operations need an easy group claiming to be part of international network anonymous has brought down the websites of scores of a strain in companies in the vengeful the country support of the n.s.a. got the full story from us tonight at r.t. dot com now there are two u.s. efforts to revive the israeli palestinian peace process is not a roadblock is tell of even announces plans to build war settler homes in the west bank to get details online. britons are struck
