even just past nine pm now here in moscow kevin i when you're watching out 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 leader supporters have been running outside the courthouse in cairo amid a heavy police presence that is paul asli i was there for us. 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 for the lowest have a look at these enormous case files this is said to be as big as five to six thousand pages long and all the lawyers concerned both those supporting mostly 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 noise he's been kept since he was ousted incommunicado in on the location today was the first time that we've seen him it was the first time is 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 incitement 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 it 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 regret that nice discords they said 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 wrong because in their one point a fight broke out between journalists and said who is the lawyer of mohamed morsy 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 a lawyer so it was extremely charged it was very tense at the missing brother had kept repeating and mohamed morsi care repeating that he was illegitimate 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 though 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 fourteen and the muslim brotherhood supporters this is widely being seen as a political trial of course tensions here are running high we'll keep you updated and you can head to paula's twitter page should to keep updated she's following all the developments in cairo for us in. the in the. on.
let's rewind the clock remind ourselves of the timeline here the twenty eleven egyptian revolution so long time army bad leader hosni mubarak step followed then by a year of political turmoil in june twenty twelve morsi became the country's first democratically elected president whoever is pushed for an islamist but constitution sparked those deadly riots unrest in december that same year violence erupted again this summer and the morsy protests prompted the military to oust the is a misleader that was followed by a vicious crackdown on muslim brotherhood supporters in which more than a thousand were killed listen journalist what eskander believes the trial against the muslim brotherhood leaders is part of a broader political plan on islamist ideology in egypt. well this is seems 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 of 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 a state of law or a democratic transition or or even 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 protesters they are not being tried along with morsi and so therefore this is seems very very highly politicized in the man of the people who want to see a lot of the muslim brotherhood behind bars. seventy human rights organizations around the world are sounding the alarm of the erosion of free to be britain they've written an open letter indeed to the u.k. prime minister blasting the government's response to surveillance leaks the center
furthest 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 newspaper has come under a huge amount of pressure you cast your 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 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 now coming up this week we're going to see the heads of m i five m i six and. 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. sarah firth well meantime cia contractor turned whistleblower edward snowden's released
a manifesto no 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 here in moscow veyron encrypted channel artie's paper all over has more on 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 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 him but also those journalists that have published his articles in various publications around the world he also lays out saying that we need to stop this kind of spying culture that is taken over it's all part of a a 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 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 amongst those fifty that say it snowed and should should 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
will episode insists calls to reform intelligence gathering agencies prove it was justified in leaking classified data we turn 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 too but also had some sharp comments regarding awareness of n.s.a. operations. i think there's going to be some best actor or some words coming out of the white house this year and best supporting actor awards coming out of the european union. what rogers the head of the house intelligence committee claims snowden put the lives of u.s. soldiers in afghanistan at risk but the supporters though say is revelations of how they died only garbage and leading to necessary reforms four of our five agent body marshals are urging to decriminalize whistleblowing. who is actually breaking the law here because all the ground that the spy agency say they are legally allowed to smile next is appear to be very legally dubious at best but 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 laws which is supposed to be and democratically and we see how we are spied on are just not keeping up the twentieth century knows and now we're dealing with twenty first century tech just ahead when cash is king u.k. iris left on the breadline. birth place of employment because we're a recession and then. i'm not i don't have many skills that i can sell teammates the blue blood so and feeling the economic pinch that story more just off the this break. wealthy british. life. market why not. find out what's really happening to the global
tens of thousands of iranians have gathered outside the u.s. embassy in tehran venting their anger at president rouhani initiative to mend relations with washington the rally comes to spot a statement from supreme leader ayatollah khomeini voicing his support for the diplomatic efforts aimed at ending the long running international standoff over iran's nuclear ambitions and he's faced criticism from hardline opponents who say. iran should not be seeking any compromise of what they see as a hostile power to round most of the crushing economic sanctions against it lifted and has signaled its willingness to make concessions on its controversial nuclear program and his poll scott makes the best again why these diplomatic overtures though are being so fiercely resisted. person rouhani is recent speech at the u.n. general assembly was said by many to represent a thorin in relations between tehran and washington a sign that the iranian leadership is king to initiate warmer ties with the global community but not everyone is keen for this to happen. hard line conservative

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 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 fireball 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 and the leadership's attempt to engage with washington has led to anti 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

u.s. is engaged in a double speak to r.t. iran on the one hand parking but engagement and respecting iran's rights and on the other hand adopting a very inflexible and hard line negotiation a strategy that demands much concession from iran without expressing willingness to you know show. in the flexibility on the issue of sanctions relief we have seen a statement by the top u.s. negotiator wendy sherman that the u.s. has not offered any tangible sanctions relief to iran at 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 our iran by the united states the dire economic situation forced to run to seek external help china's reportedly agreed to fund twenty two billion euros now and development projects using all
