in london british victims of the active ingredient in counter gun have teamed up and formed a group called solidify trust. to bias aren't present his findings from the german archives. letters files of minutes outlining the role politics played during the criminal trial against the manufacturer growing into these documents shed new light on what happened fifty five years ago. it isn't just british that it might survivors who are convinced they find allies in all british political parties. in feb twenty fifth in an unusual debate takes place in the british parliament. which is the michael moore thank you mr speaker for over fifty years philip in my
there's out been campaigning for justice particularly from the german manufacturers to know that over one hundred fifty m.p.'s of signed an open letter to the german chancellor would the prime minister add this to his busy agenda today so that we might get a decent and fair settlement for all concerned. i have on behalf of a constituent as he raised this issue not only through the european parliament but also with german authorities now certainly reflect what the old gentleman says. more than one hundred fifty british m.p.'s from all political parties have signed a letter to the german chancellor. unlike germany britain does have a tradition of rebellion when dealing with that it might the active ingredient in going to gullane. the four hundred sixty six members of the thalidomide trust and not just fighting for compensation. they want those responsible for their disabilities to be held to account nick deliberate is one of them the thinks they
have almost succeeded who had which ties and to whom and with his chart wants to explain. in the connections to german politicians as well as representatives of the european parliament if they hadn't entered the trial as they did in the early seventy's then the evidence would have been available to the victims to use in their future actions against good intel and others and in particular the u.k. survivors action in the seventy's would have undoubtedly have been and it in a much more favorable fashion to to the claimants as it was they didn't have the evidence they had to settle for a much bigger discount in the amount that they should have got than would have the bad to be in that case if there's evidence being available that it got a proper settlement and that's what threw them out as they're after now. the british lawyer thinks evidence of that confidential meeting is crucial it took place in july nine hundred sixty nine but the ministry of health and bone. senior
management can come to guns manufacturer were invited to discuss the settlement of the counter gun case according to a note from the ministry. and the goal of the meeting is to reach a legal agreement with the company as to how country gun victims can be compensated . when the parents association of the deformed children hears of the plans and hand asks to see details of the meeting the minister say is under no circumstances will the association receive any details as address is explicit because art in document the. or. no one. signs all of that you know how kind of all are. doing for. the district of half a century later in the summer of twenty fifteen a meeting between british through the mind victims and representatives of the german government took place at germany's embassy in london i think they heard the
concerns we had they obviously refute the fact that they interfered in the criminal trial but they've never actually answered individually the documents that we put to them. the british m.p. simon hall was also present at the german embassy meeting. with those really i think two hobs the first half i thought was very positive so clearly the mood music coming out from officials on the on the german side of the table as it were it was very encouraging that they wanted to have a dialogue they wanted to see this brought to a conclusion we had to leave as we had to go back to the commons to vote and then the notes following that seem to suggest that they slightly dried up like a clam and it was very much we're not going to get involved this is the only meeting we're going to have to discuss this effectively that's the end of the news i think if there was anything which came out of the meeting which we had at the embassy in july of last year is that there had been
a long debate point as to whether the drug which had been taken by british mothers had been manufactured in germany or had been manufactured under license in the u.k. and it is now very clear that the german officials taking tided the point that the third trust in the u.k. has been making for many along that there was no. manufactured in the u.k. and that which was taken by british mothers or expectant mothers have been very attracted you germany. this is knowledge to so little might be interesting if decades too late since the one nine hundred seventy s. people affected both a little might have only been able to file compensation applications with the german government anyone who does file an application must renounce all claims against the manufacturer. many european victims say they have received little or no compensation at all. the federal
ministry of family affairs declined to be interviewed. nor would it comment on the meeting with british victims at the german embassy in london. it stated only that the country gun trust fund grants financial support when planes are grounded. christi and or tell also apply for support. and clark from college don't have one as an instance of one in a skate. and box spring bet. i was going to tarboro one minor corner madson in english to become yeah and it's good bye to how it's one of one armored wish to get in wouldn't of my macbook air as it could be a clear investment of the east us baskets bookish ones and if you shop at the office on the album you get this work don't. that he is but about how can we spend
a third of our lives in our beds our beds are important and for it to be turned down on that basis is utterly ridiculous and so it's abundantly clear to me that applying to the call to go isn't going to be a solution for us at all and so therefore for us to be subjected to a ridiculous system bureaucratic system at this point in our lives it's not going to meet our needs all we need is money that we can use in the ways that we know that will suit us best. the formosa little manufacturer no longer considers claims from the victims of the drug to be the responsibility. the tougher. side. want to. of course with tanya. and hang it isn't hard to get you double tough no fun to put up for when tiger seeded border. of i know him from life and until on the streets of. supporters not played by grown
until but the federal government. one of many who was applications to the german counter gun foundation were denied his lorraine mercer sometimes i think. because. a few months back. when i moved in. it's getting more and stiffer. some of the late complications are only now becoming apparent merson need supplementary oxygen just to be able to breeze there is a fund in germany connected to the court against gift which allows the later might is to apply to it for financial assistance there's also a fund that's been set up by agreement to apply to that but you can apply to them saying you wanted some more money but you have to. prove first of all you've applied to a little more trust to get some money and that they have said no and that you've
applied to all the charities and you've tried to local government get assistance when you've been rejected by everybody you can then bring a task they would like to contribute some money towards your. financial assistance but you're not really aware that because green a tile hasn't made it public to thalidomide is outside of germany in fact the company established a private foundation. however does not want to talk about it nor do they want to discuss how application decisions are made they say they don't want to provoke envy . we please the general government should be responsible for paying for those i met health is that we or have a new flame only get that money remains needs to be met. in great britain so robert nelson is a well known judge he's written to the german federal ministry of family affairs.
the purpose of the letter was to bring home to the german government the problems that the flu the mother's face and the shortfall in finances that we felt they had in the amount they got and the amount that they would in fact need i wrote it to the relevant minister and there was no reply as. for decades parents never knew what was going on behind their backs during the criminal trial they were only allowed to be spectators. the thalidomide manufacturers defense strategy was to convince the prosecution to agree to dismiss the case. they knew that they didn't just have the regional government justice minister on their side but the federal government too however the dismissal of a criminal. case requires strict conditions at least according to the prosecution
service would know what's meant. russia's been reaching out for decades for years down under putin saying let me go trade more this war trade and america is like no no you're an existential crisis because we have to give these deadbeats in congress a lot more money if you're going to create a fake enemy called food that with demand three hundred million dollars meanwhile you go to trade with china and on the east and create a new silk road and become much for join a five dollar commie all america shrinks. what
politicians do something to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected . so when you want to be president. or somehow want to be. the two going to be for us this is what before three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the house. or sit. please. do not feel on a hot day at the dinner table bottle sorry you shouted search sawyer here in the. area. an estimated eighteen falsehoods under a trophy jeans are now living in greece. you know more go. to your home in there you go food drink eat and many sell their bodies just to make
and it's means. little in the second or third year and all the sins in there that there's a house full of says in the letters that. ulcers thirds are dealing drugs to make a living. in this us a little is a lot of words a little. a mother been. to me. about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself and taken your last turn. your attitude up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry if i only occurred so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath
. but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was a cave still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never feel like it said one does not leave a funeral in the same as one enters my mind gets consumed with death this was quite different speech because there were no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker. i. i i i.
had terrorists who showed a humanitarian corridor or in syria shortly after it was established preventing civilians from leaving districts also write the soldiers arrest ten people in a raid on a palestinian village including a fifteen year old boy with a severe head injury allegedly inflicted by the i.d.f. two months ago. on the computer recycling experts in the u.s. faces i have to find. microsoft software but the system is only trying to refurbish. i think it was helping people extend the life cycle of their electronics. planned obsolescence and to make sure that we did as much working
product out of landfills as possible. for the welcome you're watching out internationally this tuesday afternoon which just gone five o'clock in the russian capital where we'll start with syria where terrorists have shelled a humanitarian corridor or stablished billions to leave the war ravaged district of eastern just outside the capital damascus. that's according to russia's defense ministry which helped set up the route before it was attacked just minutes later these are pictures from the corridor checkpoint on the side of the government controlled territory to to the terrorists shelling not a single civilian on tuesday has been able to use the opportunity to leave the area r.t. arabic correspondent well for sure but only is on the ground in damascus and has visited the checkpoint. at the headline no civilians have come out of the corridor
yet minutes after it was opened the area was showered five times and several syrian soldiers are injured now crews have passed or been firing at those trying to quieter like you why civilians are in using this route out. here is located just outside the syrian capital has been occupied by various rebel and terror groups for years it's this area there in red violence there has recently escalated to with both sides accusing each other of targeting civilians and then to the north where the humanitarian corridor or we're set up by russia is located in the dean districts the humanitarian efforts to provide safe passage for those desperate to escape are being coordinated with the syrian red crescent buses and ambulances are on standby to evacuate civilians and people inside the rebel enclave are being notified about the location of the corridor all fire leaflets text alerts and also loudspeakers first aid points have also been set up near the exit to help those in
need of urgent medical assistance however despite these efforts it's feared that civilians will be prevented by rebels from leaving the war zone as more against the earth explains. civilians dying they're dying from rebel shells from government bombs from bullets shrapnel and crossfire in damascus and in east ghouta the u.n. cease fire is dead on arrival no one stops shooting so the syrians are trying their own way humanitarian corridors backed by russia thousands of these leaflets being dropped over east ghouta by syrian helicopters there are instructions for civilians on how to get out of the war zone maps with arabs follow them if you dare women of all the jews and children reportedly continued to be forbidden by local armed groups from leaving the area for security
reasons they've done it before in aleppo is limited rebels wouldn't let anyone out they shot at civilians trying to feed to government held areas they shelled humanitarian crossings and if you made it out that punish your relatives same story in ghouta this has been going on for years the evidence indicates that non-state armed groups in eastern guta and in particular josh islam are also responsible for inflating the price of food and other basic necessities they're arbitrarily restricting the movement of civilians wishing to leave and abducting and arbitrarily detaining people. you'd think this is important right well the pundits and activists screaming about gouda and not once have they asked the pertinent question i have nothing at all to talk we welcome the security council's
decision regarding a ceasefire because of the burden on our families and he said this suffering must be lifted to the decision to stop the bloodshed caused by the regime in eastern for many along the. gulf you have the when the regime is not abiding by the un resolution i cannot stand still and watch and defend myself and our families in good time why are they still there despite their access to the spokes person of the army of islam the jihad this group that holds east ghouta they have not asked him why his group is blocking woman and kids from leaving a war zone it's good press for him to stand there and complain that innocents are dying while meeting that they're dying big because his own rebel fighters won't let them leave the armed groups inside east ghouta will not allow those people to leave
simply because the little they will be the next target after that it will deprive them from a very strong media arm because those civilian deaths among the civilian actually create a sympathy all over the middle east and all over the world i think human are you almost as you know a propaganda tools and these bloody war and in syria so with it will continue i don't believe it will stop but definitely with this according to your human humanitarian corridor or actually could do it use that human casualties among those people. well russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov has compared the situation in eastern guta to east in the lead a little over a year ago where part where part of the city was also occupied by rebel and terrorist groups some of which held civilians hostage the. bugs in the mass evacuation of civilians took place in order to destroy the terrorists who didn't want to leave and everyone said that it was
a very risky operation because civilians could leave and never return you might even be considered ethnic cleansing and yesterday the governor said that two hundred thousand of those who lived aleppo have complex that's a third of all buildings damaged by war have been restored and this process is continuing so we should remember that it is said by the volleyball they did leave anyone to leave the job out of. this film experience we are. seeing today they will try to profit for that if one believes if the bulk of what are these negotiations which is going. that i thought accuse the syrian government. of their lives or always of the. of those because we're doing this we get people from it some of what the. israeli
soldiers have carried out a pre-dawn raid on a palestinian village arresting ten people among them a teenage boy still recovering from an alleged gunshot to the head sustained at a west bank protesting months ago the raid was caught on video by one of his family members. well ten palestinians were arrested by the i.d.f. in a pre-dawn raid five of them were mine is and among those detained was mohammad khatami meat who was seriously wounded after an israeli soldier fired at him with a rubber bullet back in december and now he is currently waiting for surgery to help restore part of his skull off it was removed in emergency surgery following that december incident and it's something.
to learn with when i'm going to. the israeli army has confirmed that it a race to tell me overnighted says that the service was approved by an army physician now after being arrested he was interrogated and has been subsequently released during that interrogation it seems as if he was forced to say that he fell off a bike and when his head hit the handlebars that course the injury now his family has refuted this and in fact doctors have proven that the injury to his head was in fact caused by every other bullet he is the younger brother of tommy who is currently in detention awaiting trial off to slapping an israeli soldier who arrived at her home. now that was filmed back in december when soldiers arrived at the tell me home to
a west mohammed naturally i heard was extremely angry in her brother of regularly at protests and demonstrations with israeli soldiers there very often in confrontations. and investigation into one of the worst cases of child sex abuse in the u.k. is stalling due to a lack of qualified personnel the abuse scandal centers on the sexual exploitation of fourteen hundred children over the course of three decades in the northern british town of rubber room it was revealed that eighty percent of these suspected perpetrators were of pakistani origin well arty's police boyko looks at why the probe launched three years ago is still failing to make progress according to this senior officer investigating the scandal one hundred more police officers are needed to uncover the truth so far police have managed to interview seventeen percent of the possible one and a half thousand victims due to a shortage in specially trained detect it.
