5:16 pm
a pleasure to have you with us here today. welcome back you're watching our team international now and time may be running out for a russian pilot jailed in the u.s. this is according to his lawyer constantine go has been refused of vital medical help despite being at death's door and even now top russian officials are urging washington to intervene as. the reports. first he received twenty years in prison in the united states for a crime he never committed on the american soil now it has gone from bad to worse for russian violent constantini russian. he called me in the morning and told me he
5:17 pm
felt very sick and that he'd be lucky to survive until monday he seems to be having a heart attack because he told me he was suffocating experience and heart pain and was almost unable to walk he was beaten severely when he was arrested and has not been feeling well for a long time but his pleas for medical help have been ignored and he felt sick they put him in lock up and left him on the cold floor he tried to get to the doctor but all he was offered was flu medication and some antibiotics sometimes they don't even let me send him letters and they have refused to let any russian officials meet with the prison chief or with the head doctor you know showing his lawyer told r.t. that the head doctor at the new jersey prison where he's being held will not expedite his treatment which could have the worst possible consequences monday is also a federal holiday in the united states so my supposition would be that any kind of medical treatment so constant in your i shan't go could be provided only.
5:18 pm
on tuesday the eighteenth of february constantine your i shan't go sad that he might not live through the we can kiss condition requires immediate medical attention you know who was arrested in twenty ten in liberia on suspicion of drug smuggling he was reportedly severely beaten before being transported to the u.s. where he received a twenty year prison sentence this is not new this is something we've seen repeated over and over again the kind of arrogant attitude that washington has toward other countries and particularly to other countries for a nap. doing white washington less to dictate to them to do the prisons system of the united states the largest prison system on the planet the highest rate of prisoners of any country lives is the number in both absolute terms in relative terms how does bono tell our notoriously. disregarding of the rights of
5:19 pm
prisoners even the most fundamental rights including the ritual to live. moscow has been insisting all along that the way your case has been handled regardless of whether he committed the crime or not is a gross violation of human rights probably very beginning. so if you are. speaking mr abbas has been absolutely. we have expressed very serious concern we have for the u.s. government that. they are under international obligations to take care of. the health of our citizens having failed to get through to washington via official channels the russian foreign ministry resorted to social media and posted a plea for help on its facebook page ever since you know it was delivered to the u.s. russian officials have been denied access with the situation now taking a dramatic turn the russian foreign ministry officials are once again demanding to
5:20 pm
be allowed to see him along with their own doctors that is of course if you know shankar himself lives to receive that help. r.t. the russian pilot's a case is not out of the ordinary in the u.s. prison system now according to the u.s. department of justice more than forty five thousand people died in custody in the space of a decade some of them didn't even live to face any of the charges. of the prison legal news alex friedman told r.t. that keeping inmates alive isn't always a priority in american jails. prisoners might have very serious medical conditions and sometimes be very near death and they're told to sign up on a sick call or that they'll refer them to the nurse the next week or there might not be a doctor at the prison that weekend so they have to wait until the next week to see medical staff. go receive the twenty year sentence he did not receive
5:21 pm
a death sentence but unless he receives adequate medical care he and other prisoners with serious medical conditions can die while in custody mr you're a shame go was basically kidnapped and you know when he was taken into custody overseas by u.s. officials. the united states really does not have a lot of respect for the rule of international law when it conflicts with what they want to do always most stories on our t.v. dot com including italy lightning and the burden on its overcrowded prisons. by overturning a law that would marijuana alongside cocaine and heroin in the eyes of the law could free around ten thousand inmates currently serving sentences related to soft drugs. and the mystery of the martian rock of it appeared in red planet pictures seemingly out of nowhere is solved you can head to our tea dot com for good explanation of the phenomenon.
