security council to pull is the legitimate leader and imposed another one to a sovereign country the venezuelan representatives spoke as well calling to stop interfering in the matters of his country the power to this will has to do with having this one on sovereignty and of an assault on people they behave like colonial east they are planning a clandestine operation against a sort of right out the same kind of talking about what he thought and therefore at the same time they are just feeling out of money you see something outrageous indeed so the diplomatic community in the crossroads again the u.n. as thieves members who spoke after the voting called it to all of their colleagues to put their differences aside to resolve the venezuelan crisis reporting in new york treated each other as r.t. . meantime hundreds of activists are valid in spanish capital madrid in support of venezuelan president as madeira demonstrators chanted slogans and waved hands off venezuela banners they condemned what they see as an attempt by the united states
2:04 am

2:05 am
to washington's dictate all of the other two or three two to actually contradict one of the worst in general. but elections just months away kalidas promises facing calls to step down as a political stand also a scandal threaten to topple his government justin trudeau has been accused of leading a campaign of pressure against his former attorney general to prevent the prosecution of one of the country's biggest companies and cut a deal instead. i experienced a consistent and sustained effort by many people within the government to seek to politically interfere in an inappropriate effort to secure a deferred prosecution agreement with s. and c. level and the prime minister asked me to help out to find a solution here for s n c. the scandal surrounds a canadian company which is one of the world's largest engineering construction firms in twenty fifteen it was charged with bribery and fraud over the payment of
2:06 am
nearly one hundred million dollars in kickbacks to libyan officials the dealings allegedly involved family members of former leader moammar gadhafi they were meant to secure contracts in a lucrative irrigation project now just into those denied any inappropriate behavior insisting he was just trying to save jobs. i and my staff always acted appropriately and professionally we of course had discussions about the potential loss of nine thousand jobs in communities across the country including the possible impact on pensions former attorney general julie wilson raybold resigned over the affair citing a veiled threats allegedly level data by the canadian prime minister's office to those principles secretary also called it quits amid reports that more officials are ready to leave the administration political analyst alexandra bruno explains why the case could indeed cost the prime minister his seat to. it shows that the politics and interests do mix in canada as well as other places and this is the
2:07 am
problem it's the image that the prime minister has built around himself or some people call it the brand of a feminist author a liberal ultra legal transparent leader who is completely tripping over his own ideals in ny and months there will be an election in canada so no matter where this goes constitutional crisis the political crisis there will be a problem in the election and justin trudeau those leadership is definitely in question now the idea was that if. face prosecution. it might have to move headquarters away from canada so and also. since eleventh is in writing where trudeau is directly involved the more writings you win the more chances you have been in your knowledge it must have been very
2:08 am
important for trudeau to have taken such really. amateur measures and he thought he could he could pressure his justice minister. in a bid to ease the humanitarian crisis in yemen the un has raised more than two and a half billion dollars at a high level pledging event in geneva but all that said it's well we're short of a target some of four billion dollars to fulfill the she's a plan on top of that it seems many all of the donor countries the exact same ones linked to an almost four year conflict in yemen either by fighting or selling arms .
2:09 am
don't know most twenty four million yemeni is in need of a of some sort i don't want they have to see salaries because they are sleeping hungry at night i flats children attending an old high five what's telling me they go to sleep hungry every other day because they can't afford to have i mean every day they've been displaced mushmouth times they've lost their houses there is no safe place in yemen and does not yet for hasn't been one way or another witness this war be it on the land the sea and air strikes artillery tank fire that is happening every day most of them. they are they don't go in as they have been traditionally the ones most generous in funding where they are united but at the same time they are also the most active
2:10 am
directory order and i think it's with the sales of weapons orders i don't think that if you wanted yemeni civilians so we're aware that calling for an end to the hypocrisy end up a list of the old school feeding was one hand the yemenis to keep them alive destroying the afghans with the other why the ages desperately need that they themselves not being the need for that face to the war to the fighting to the blockades and home of these weapons this fighting is having a direct impact on women children civilians who have obviously to know stay in this consulate. howard university of the u.s. is launching a probe after a graffiti attack on a campus call for one of its law professors to resign it came after faculty disgruntled sullivan decided to join the legal team representing disgraced hollywood film producer harvey weinstein and he has got one of the story this morning. down with the dean how fed doesn't care these are just some of the angry
2:11 am
slogans held by protesters on campus at harvard university why the meeting me if meant it to me to me to me to be to me to me to be true. only this time the accused has not been inappropriate towards women the rights lie with disgraced movie mogul harvey weinstein has assembled his legal dream team he can afford the best and that includes a top harvard law school professor ronald he's tried in vain to explain the simple right to a fair trial but the students are having none of it it's particularly important for this category of unpopular defendant to receive the same process as everyone else perhaps even more important to the degree we deny unpopular defendants basic due process rights we cease to be the country we imagine ourselves to be. he's got a point everyone accused of
2:12 am
a crime is entitled to the best legal defense they can get even weinstein who isn't even the most notorious to of sullivan's catalogue of controversial clients but some students have to have taken the cue from what would you rather have a client who committed a crime mahlum in surrey or malum prohibitum needs are the ones that. i would rather have a client his innocent that beam that is of outrage you have failed the black women in this community not only as one of the few black faculty deans on campus but also as a community leader someone who were inspected and looked to for guidance and even a petition online calling percent of and resignation with the escalation on campus of its administration and starting climate review of the house after which it promises appropriate action as dean of the college one of my highest priorities is to ensure that the support students receive for their is additional communities
2:13 am
pulls institutional commitment to their well being if awards plaudits and legal winds are anything to go by sullivan's track record is formidable but when you're signed up by an unpopular defendant like one seen even the best legal reputation can bite the dust in the unforgiving court of public opinion i think it just goes to show the downfall in the trajectory of top american law schools yes everybody has a right to legal defense but not really everybody in america this is the precedent that's been set only some people have a right to a legal defense only some people have the right to an attorney only some people have the right to representation and that's the president that we're seeing be set by these activist organizations is that if you don't agree with me if you don't do something that i like yes harvey weinstein's crimes are regis granted but it's setting a precedent to say that if we don't like if we don't approve of what you've done then you're not worthy of the bill. right so no the united states. shooting range
2:14 am
of the u.k. has been branded distasteful for allowing pictures of ice or bride to mean a beggar to be used as target practice the teenager notoriety of late after an interview in which he showed no remorse or regret about flee the syria which is a teenager whatever images used at the range now covered in bullet holes has been widely shared online reaction has been mixed in a society where hate and violence against muslims particularly muslim women is most prevalent on the rise it's deeply concerning that people requested an image of a real person as a shooting target it's clearly wrong to use photos of people as targets in a shooting they should stop why you're so worried about a traitor they're just plain again with her poster her eyes his friend starts to real human hands of beheaded victims like a football and she wasn't raised remember that she may have begun was born in britain but fled to syria four years ago to join i saw when she was fifteen she now says she'd like to return to the u.k.
2:15 am
but britain's move to revoke a citizenship is how the shooting range explained why they chose to me. the targets provide some fantastic reactions and conversations and allow people to have some lighthearted fun and bring out the inner child in us all the targets we provide do not necessarily always reflect our personal opinions after watching footage of big i'm being interviewed and the lack of remorse and empathy she shows we chose to go ahead and run the targets we are swat our guests thought of this kind of message and what it sends to people. the issue is how it's going to actually impact on muslims in this country and muslim women in particular and the fact that we need to recognize she whether we like it or not because she is a muslim woman she is going to inevitably represent something that the people who are going to range people are saying this is something that is going to be targeting muslim women in the second what is more what is more offensive to
2:16 am
muslim women the fact that should be pagans picture was at the shooting range almost nobody is going to go to all the fact that somebody is appearing on international television to say that should mean the begum is a vet present state of muslim women in britain that it's not what it said that is a caricature. whatever it is precisely what you said that night if you have knowledge of the need to actually think about why do you allow me to finish what you allow me to finish what i'm talking about plane that is being made is that a racist environment this is a racist environment which you are a part of which is encouraging the targeting of muslim women she is a terrorist and their lord biding citizens and frankly you should take that back you should apologize to muslim women in this country for suggesting that she is like them this is a process of desensitization of children from a very early age and this is problematic because it is saying that it's ok to shoot
2:17 am
and kill women in her job because that's exactly what is being suggested in this to call it harmless fun i think it's important that we recover the child advocates on the t.v. channels that we should take military action to get the child but it's u.k. who after all is an innocent victim she can take a hike i don't care about. the release idea if she also says it's not true and b. so fed was there to reason that there. is a terrorist group he'll be placed in a way that would be taken away but for a white person that would not be an option. their citizenship would be taken away he said oh no this is under the law recognize that there is a structural racism that exists through everything that you are actually saying is a sense of what you would prefer i think should be i would say of the usual bring her back to defend the grain have arrived and try her and that's the issue there is an environment of hate that exists i think what we have to think first of all who are the real victims here should be he's a terrorist she supported
2:18 am
a brutal terrorist regime the disgraceful idea in the media that we should be seeing her is the fix and i think it's sad and pathetic that it would not be the role of the british state to tell british people what they can and can't do just cause one or two people are offended by it if we lived our lives bunning everything that the one person found offensive nothing would exist in the world i thank god i live in a country where we're never going to do that. coming up italy's interior minister is accused of bankrolling is electro operations with russian money in a deepening divide between roman brussels got live comment on that after the break . much was expected from the noise summit there may have been goodwill on both sides but in the end neither the united states nor north korea could agree on the path
2:19 am
forward the two sides failed to reach a common understanding of what their desired endgame for denuclearization actually is. what we really need. someone from the outside. we had a very good last because. series they lost. so as a stake not just intermediate the cause of the palestinian. join me every first week on the alex salmond shill and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see if.
2:20 am
i get a live from moscow so it's international as cover now with this morning it's now coming up to twenty minutes past ten o'clock in the morning this march the first another western politician has been accused of collaborating with russia will tell you about that now this time it's elisa interior minister mattel's selvi he said to have received funding from moscow. proof yes it is very clear and i denounce it now salvini is receiving money he is going to receive huge amounts of money from russia from russian banks for the next electoral campaign so that he can continue to undermine the values of the e.u. so that from here in parliament vice president that statements raise concerns of italy politicians they demanded to know where selvi these funding came from is no the league party denies taking money from russia but salvini has been accused of kremlin links before.
2:21 am
if cell vinnie feel so at home in moscow in bed with putin why does he stay there he's betraying the collective european interest let's go live now to the northern league so foreign relations centric loaded to make thanks for joining us this morning can you comment on these claims in that mattel survey he's receiving russian money true or false or absolutely false i have to tell you this gentleman said that. fake news we'll be sue for defamation saw probably he would be our campaign because he left. after court to say that we are right because we're out to prove we never had and we would never have money from anyone because we don't need it we are serving is so popular that we don't need money to go in not
2:22 am
. while every every party needs money to help survive there are a part of solving these brain seeking russian financing is there any truth in that . that's not true the problem is that the came paying for the european parliament has begun and because of our door has nor they have nothing to say so do you just created this fake news. to frame the old us so they have nothing to propose because they destroyed europe day we day behaving the last year so they destroy it euro and now there are people like mr salvini that want to create a. new europe for the people of europe but they are so scared that they start to create such ific news i'm very very and i have to say surprise that
2:23 am
that gentleman was having a speech against their fake news but he's different what i wanted ok what i couldn't see is being put forward to back these claims against mr silva what are you saying you want he would have to bring it to a court because you're going to sue him he would have to bring to decode the evidence so i'm waiting because there are no evidence so i'm wait please bring us the evidence we're not the evidence so he will have to prove in a court that so what's this all about these are you parliamentary elections cost just around the corner you say of some kind of smear campaign against a prominent euro skeptic may be able to put words in your mouth but what's it all about. so the problem as i told you they have no argument they don't know what to say they don't know what to propose to you or because they destroy you or so now they just work on can pain of
2:24 am
a fake news in order to defame or did. so this is the euro we have proposed. starting from eat only you know i have to be really clear. and use this a beanie is not the ration is not pro american. these is our being we are working forty die young people in or out in europe and we believe that the europe we must have been nice and not look so in order to have peace and we have to talk with everyone so that their nation with russia because we were we want to have peace with russia not the world i was going to say if you think the real problem here be that maybe innocence of any is not perceived to be sufficiently anti russian and that's not gone down to well so that's probably one of the thing because you know. we are going to create
2:25 am
a stable peace or we want to stiffle peace in the world and specially europe and if we have no dialogue with russia it's not possible to have a peace we don't. need to counter so and we didn't say we are going out from it but. these allegations were have come up in exposing this week in an italian magazine tell us a bit more about our. but this is all a big big fake news i said told you nothing is behind their so this is. their way of dickon painting of the left they need they have no arguments they don't know what to say didn't know what to propose for the next european election and so the only way is to create the some scandal against the. party that are going to rule the next election the final one when e.u.
2:26 am
sanctions on russia come up for a view again later on how does it really intend to vote on that you know but i have to be clear this is a this will be after european elections so the blind at the moment are european election campaign is what we have to do in theory or european union well which kind of reform we want to have which kind of europe. if she knew or should be a europe of the bankers and of the euro good looking at as a day or a euro of the people of europe with the values of the people of europe so this is the campaign not to what we would do with russia looking to do with russia it would be after contained we will have to decide together with our partners european part of us we have one point of view because it's in the interest of sanction not
2:27 am
