12:01 pm
you senseless. they are likely doing it on purpose to anger. russia on the sheets of the jets is just in pleasant way, provoke people. ah! are they life marty's world news headquarters? moscow will welcome to the rounded but 8 pm this friday with me. kevin, now i'm starting to pick story tonight. london court has ruled that wiki leaks found a jury massage can be expedited to the u. s. washington. one. it's appeal against a previous ruling that blocked his sons from being sent to america to face trial on espionage charges. his fiancee described the decision today is a grave miscarriage of justice julian expose the crimes of ca, tortures of caea killers. and now we know that those ca killers were planning to kill him too. how can this court how
12:02 pm
can these courts approve an extradition request? under these conditions called to the phone just now or step closer to being expedited to the united states. as the u. k. high court has decided that it will, the overturning a decision not to expedite to him to the united states. that decision was based back in january on medical grounds at the time the judge said it would be oppressive as jr. massage is out of high risk of suicide. of course, back in october, those a to day harry, i was the united states trying to appeal over numerous grounds, including the fact that it offered an unprecedented package of assurances, as i saw, would not be held under the maximum security district. his maximum security conditions in prison and that he isn't unwell is being, he's made out. well, judas sanchez of continue to say that he is indeed
12:03 pm
a suicide risk. and that all of these assurances are meaningless and vague as they put it. they said that the united states can reverse any decision, not any point. class has also concerns about the trustworthiness of america's guarantees to pointing to one of those reports in the, in the cia i had talked to kidnap doing this on to, to kill them on even was spying. and bugging him during his time at london's ecuadorian embassy. now june assigned as noise, what they say is this is i'm pulling up evidence to not only throw out the court case entirely, but they say it's a 100 percent politically motivated. plus they of course i'll give it to you in the san should be walking free. when did you go by senior to fight for a sanchez freedom. it is unfair to keep him in custody when there is no crime or punishment for him. we continued to fight and this latest decision is not yet final . it's will take time. i remind you that extradition hearings have been going on
12:04 pm
for almost a year, and it may take us long again to get a final decision. however, sanchez health continues to deteriorate and all of this affects his physical and psychological condition. i called the journalist is being prosecuted for publishing, reliable information about especially grave war crimes committed by the american military in iraq and afghanistan. and it is worth noting that the american court is not prosecuting the military who committed these crimes, but the journalist who published information about serious human rights violations . therefore, everything that happened became very indicative of the violation of freedom of the press by the american justice system in relation to other countries. now the united states on june is on for what they deem is one of the largest compromises of classified information in the history of the united states. and if found guilty and convicted, he could be sent to prison for up to a 175 years. that's because the u. s. have indicted him on 18 counts under the
12:05 pm
espionage jacques for publishing. i classified military documents overnighted to the war in iraq and afghanistan, but most crucially, when i got included claims that in the military even killed thousands of innocent civilians. now, speaking outside the high court here, this morning, we've heard from stella morris the partner who's incredibly disappointed and she's saying why and how is this happening? how long can this really go on for? and many people perhaps have been supporting her outside here. many, many protests is that also of similar questions there who is a glimmer of hope that you know, the british justice system might actually prevail for once. the british judiciary has assistive on every level, the u. s. campaign garcia and i to 10 years, 10 years in the streets of london. public opinion has a sound. but obviously the judge's decision is not on the side
12:06 pm
of public opinion. it's absolutely devastating, especially this time of year to another christmas without doing that is children without their data stay on to fight to free judy massage. that's what i say. we will prevail eventually. well, interestingly or ironically today is international human rights day, and many people outside as a high court to say, where is the human rights? in the case of uranus, orange obviously listed on the foreground of the royal court of justice, that they call it the royal courts. of injustice, and just as i did it was being announced, i protest even through eggs at the side, directly behind me, which just goes to show the sentiment and feeling here on the streets of london. it's a complicated back story. let me briefly try and put it back together for your son story. back in 2019. he was falsely removed by british police from ecuador, an embassy in london. after kita terminated this 7 year asylum there,
12:07 pm
he sought refuge in the building following sexual assault obligations and sweden, which have now been dropped. america wants the wikileaks found extradited on claims of conspiring to hat government computers and to publish classified material and fast food to january. the sheer of british judge ruled against extra voting him to the us of a fears about his mental health, but also rejected his bail application claiming he may flee. early we spoke with the wikileaks editor in chief, kristen hutchinson was actually in believable. and so i run a good disposition should be handed on the united nations human rights. the united states had all opportunity in the madison court to make those so called assurances it did not. it simply press them forward after the last in the menus of court in general, the united states had given assurances that the they would to treat the julian fairly and he would get the treatment and be housed in an adequate to jail.
12:08 pm
and could even serve new sentence if he gets one in australia, all of these so called assurance and have been and been investigated by human rights organizations such as amnesty international and found that the, those are you are just not worth the paper. they're written on. they are simply not reliable. we are dealing here with a nation where individuals on the top level in the junior, the top level of the cia and in the white house contemplated, kidnapping were killing julian assaults. this is not a case that is being fought on the basis of the law. this is an absolute travesty of any legal process. this is a political case, and the julian arrest us we have said for many, many years is a political persecution. the supreme pursuing assange are ravel classified information about american military activities during was enough canister,
12:09 pm
and iraq, ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah, ah, we were russian for a ministry slam. the court verdict highlighting that it coincides or the end of a summit for democracy hosted by the us. this shameful,
12:10 pm
vertical political case against journalistic and public figure is another manifestation of the cannibalistic world view of the anglo saxon tandem. the west marsh international human rights day and the end of the summit for democracy with dignity. this news is devastating the persecution of julian asunder the disgrace. meanwhile, biden is holding his cynical democracy summit and the hypocrisy and the cruelty. we condemned today's u. k. high court decision to allow the expedition of julian sans to the us, which will prove historic for all the wrong reasons. we fully believe that gillian assange has been targeted for his contributions to journalism. we also spoke to geo political as patrick hennings, and he says the wes thing sits rhetoric on democracy. freedom of speech only applies to other countries. they like talking about journalism. they like talking about media freedom or they like to impose it on various other developing week countries. target nations. nations singled out for regime change,
12:11 pm
but when it comes to actually living up to are those sort of things at home. though the, the rhetoric doesn't actually match the reality. and i think julia sanchez cases, a huge embarrassment on that level. so then again, it's incumbent on the establishment, the mainstream media, the political powers, to collude together a to ignore this case and to deny the fact that to julia sanchez, a journalist and that wiki lakes is in fact a press outlet doing a public service. so that's more or less how they closed ranks on that on that story. meantime classified documents to be laid bare showing how the u. s. appears for broken diplomatic assurances in another extradition case, similar though to that, which during assange face is now. david mendoza says he only agreed to be extradited by madrid to america on condition he be allowed to serve any sentence in spain. he says that even signed a document for the american and spanish governments assuring him of that condition
12:12 pm
. but then that the u. s. held him in jail for almost 7 years before eventually returning him. and only after he took legal action against america, we spoke to independent janice, which had met her to release the documents. in that case. you know, they've told a song that he can serve at any potential sentence in his home country australia. they said the exact same thing to mendoza, they told him just just let him come to the us and he can serve any sentence given back in spain. in mendoza's case, the united states signed a contract, an explicit contract with mendoza and with spain saying that he must be returned to spain. he cannot be given a life sentence, he kind of tried for conscience structuring. they violated the, the u. s. kept him for 6 years and 9 months, the only reason mendoza was allowed to go back to spain is because he sued spain twice in the spanish supreme court. and he won. and spain threatened to cut off the extradition treaty with the us. that is when the u. s. felt pressure, they wanted to keep extra dining people from spain. and so it's only because this was imperiled and in danger of being cancelled that they then sent him back and was
12:13 pm
expedited for drug trafficking and money laundering. and he told me, if they did that to him, if the united states did that to mendoza, what are they going to do to julian thought. this is a common practice. the united states violates its assurances. it's diplomatic agreements, whether it's iran, nuclear deal, whether it's, you know, a prison transfer assurances for a saundra window that they're going to violate the mark my words. this is going to happen. mendoza is certain of this. i interviewed him for this and he's been dozens of people from spain, from columbia, from mexico, from all over the world, who've been given assurances. and once i get to the us, it's violated these documents that i published. they weren't seen by the court yet . they weren't submitted in court, and i'm convinced that if the judge had seen them, if the judge's study these documents, they could not let the extraction go ahead because they've accepted that a song just suicidal. they've accepted the judge, apply the test correctly, that he would be even more suicidal. he would, he would drive an extradition to deal with, drive him to take what they except it all this. so the only reason they allow the
12:14 pm
appeal to go ahead today was that the judge should have allow us to give assurances before and that they trust the us assurances, well, i'm very sorry, but these classified documents say otherwise please check it in. this is all to international recruit system of i lied for correspondence in fighting crimea and new york city for the lakes as fall out from that big ukranian navy ship incident that happened near the coach, straight into the sea of as of last night. as a big, careful went on for a few hours and the ramifications still happening now. we'll let you know the latest and reaction after the break. ah, ah. you're watching television. you forget about the comp. it cousins the facts from the living room and you plug your experience into the tv. something romantic happens to romantic feelings to be scary. hampshire hills get suspend
12:15 pm
belief in reality. and you literally follow the story if you like this on the television. and in a sense it knows is who similar oh oh
12:16 pm
i gain rushes for ministry has to day criticize the west for its behavior over the craning ship encroachment on brushing territory last evening with a warning that could even lead conflict in europe. this get the latest on this really a shop of oliver is in crimea, and caleb, mo, pin is in new york city. hi guys. you know, want to come to 1st to wholly, from a very strong words, a response from russia to day. yes, exactly. and not so long ago, we had from the russian foreign ministry regarding the latest incident in the economy and curse trade, whether ukrainian a ship called don bonds had approached russian territory horses and then turned back without reporting to the russian coast guard. also on thursday, december, the 9th russian flies his escorted find us in french miniature aircraft over the blank. see, according to the russian national defense control center. and the russian foreign ministry added that nato supports ukraine and it's aggressive actions instead of
12:17 pm
holding it. bank mosca is concerned that nato can place a strike missile systems with a minimum fly time to russia on ukrainian soil. so let's take a listen to what the ministry had to say. a course has been set to draw ukraine into nature. such irresponsible behavior is an unacceptable threat to all security provoking serious risks for all parties involved up to a large scale conflict in europe. earlier the f as b has called the actions of the ukranian ship don boss in this see a bizarre, a provocation, and a threat to the safety of navigation back. just to remind you not far away from where i'm standing in the crime me and see to have courage, a collision between the russian and ukranian fleet and the curse trade have nearly happened. it started when they don't bounce ship left. the port of new poll says day morning and moved towards the cursed trade, the rushes side hunt receive any request for passage as required by russian legislation. it was sailing and the sea of
12:18 pm
a zone towards the cache trade and did not respond to requests from the russian coast guard, according to the f as b lay. so it took the opposite cause all this time the ship was accompanied by russia's coast. so god, meanwhile, the ukrainian defense minister said they don't bounce ship was in this c o bazaar legally, since it was a shed water area. express his surprise at moscow. so a threat from an unarmed search and rescue vessel. and also the ship incident took place at the same time when the talks between the presidents of the united states and ukraine, joe biden, and of la demi zalinski were under way at various sources, say that c presidents, among other things, were discussing an online meeting between joe barton and rushes led him a person that took place early on tuesday. analysts say ukraine would. the western support regular tries to violate russian territorial waters. crime in officials expressed consent and urged the you unsecure to cancel to discuss the problem that can lead to a wide spread confrontation. meanwhile,
12:19 pm
here encourage local people also see the latest incident as provocation. actually they say it's not a problem for ukrainian ships to pass through the cache trade. they did regularly actually, all they need to do is to inform the russian side that they are coming. and he has some of the opinions at the young people will provoke gods. this is blatant provocation of it was intended to show that as biden's lensky spoke, russia was restricting passage for ukrainian ship through the cut straight. i am confident that there was a t v chrome board ready to film and record it all as it happened to grow. they wanted to paint russia is guilty. they always blame russia for everything. you still neither. god bless those phone you deal with that. the, his senseless worker for, but the words that he crane would continue with the provocations and they're likely doing it on purpose to anger, russia, all the sheeps, all the jets is just unpleasant when provoked people, a few yards brookwood mammoth piece with russia. so brooklyn your thoughts, me too, and i say that willing to be evil. so it would continue to follow all the
12:20 pm
developments here encouraged right nicely and it will bring you more information as we get it. yeah. or are yearly, thanks. that over to kill him open a new york city were heard from you earlier. the epa feelings are running high and all the negotiations and the diplomacy that me going on that very day. so was this unexpected, this incident last night, given everything? julia's just said, well, this incident at the curt straight is just the latest in the twisting development of conflict with the russian ukrainian border. now it's important to know these kind of provocations haven't just been going on for a couple weeks. it's been happening for well over half a year. and the situation is rather intense. we have u. s. media playing up the idea that somehow russia is planning an invasion of ukraine, something russia has been very adamant. they are not planning to do rushes as it is not planning to invade ukraine. now we have
12:21 pm
a situation where joe biden is bragging that he somehow i has prevented this, has convinced russia to change their minds and, and convinced boot and not to send troops to ukraine. but yet we have speculation all across u. s. media about joe biden's temperament and about how effective he really is in engaging with russia. here's some of what we've heard. do you not discount no matter how far fetched it may seem a hot war with russia? yes, that is a lunatic idea. there is nothing we could possibly gain from a military confrontation with letter reputed, and there's very much we could lose, including, of course, many thousands of american wives. but that doesn't mean joe biden won't do it. now these statements don't seem baseless. if you look at what's actually been taking place along the border now at this point you can recall the u. k and there are provocations over the black sea waters last summer. there, there is also been intensification of activity from
12:22 pm
u. s. strategic bomber aviation over the area. there's actually a claim for moscow that americans are rehearsing, dropping nuclear bombs near the russian border. just yesterday, we saw 2 nato, a war plains that were escorted by russia over the black sea prevented from violating russia's aerospace they were aiming to violate russia's aerospace and the and russia essentially prevented them from doing so. escorting them over the black sea. in addition to that, we have situations where we have members of the us, congress and of u. s. senators making statements about possibly attacking russia, saying that they wouldn't be opposed to such a thing and creating a fire storm of opposition from their colleagues. here's some of what's been said. i would not rule out american troops on the ground. we don't do, you know, we don't rule out. first use nuclear action. any one who would propose or even consider what he is saying as an option must be
12:23 pm
insane. a sociopath or a status launch a nuclear attack that would start a war that would destroy the american people, our country, and the world, and oh, also the ukrainians so that we can save ukraine's democracy. i mean it, it literally is insane. now the backdrop for all of this is the intense division within us society. i. we have a situation where the white house says one thing, other politicians are saying something completely different, big divisions internally in the united states. that's kind of the backdrop for this escalation and these heated words that we're seeing from us officials. so joe biden is reassuring everyone that he's responsible for. we're saving you grain from this alleged threat of russian invasion. that's the situation here in the united states or other thanks the previous hope to speak kellum open and in chrome or the uli ship of oliver. there's a story unfolded last evening. i spoke to dell mcadams,
12:24 pm
executive director at rome. pl piece institute told me the instant appeared to be of provocation by the ukrainian military. i'm sure that a ship called dawn bass just coincidentally, happened to test russian resolve near the, near the bridge. i think it was definitely a provocation. we've seen in the media over the past couple of weeks, particularly here in the united states, a lot of coverage about how russia is massing its troops inside of russia. and somehow that's the threat. russia has gone as your viewers well no. to this point is saying, yes, you can go through, you can go through the straight, but you do have to file in advance. and that's certainly according to, in accordance with international law, the last person to congratulate president by but i think he's trying to walk it back. i think he's looking for a way out of this. you know, that's the case. he should be applauded for trying to do this for telling the learn, hey, why don't you look at the men's agreement and try to go a little bit further towards fulfilling these obligations you've taken all. further,
12:25 pm
the united states said on 1st a that 30 javelin onto tank missile systems were delivered to ukraine back in october. next, tonight to have his senior correspondent burg goes to take. so why did look at the ukraine, tensions and the situation on the ground in the country escalation? both rhetorically, we would, we have seen this hysteria reach fever pitch about the situation over ukraine, about potential plans to invaders, some country se, but the situation on the ground in ukraine is perhaps worse to war because that is where people are dying. people are dying. people are suffering. people are going through through al and have been going through hell for many years now. we have, we have seen of the united states pacifically pumping weapons into ukraine for the ukrainian military. and these are weapons b, b, b, they a javelin miss. are supplied by the united states or by dr. drones supplied by turkey. these are, these are weapons that are flowing into credit and immediately going to the
12:26 pm
conflicts of where the civil war is being fought in the east of ukraine. and they are making life horrific for the people that ukraine has boosted about how it is used all it's, it's shiny new toys. unfortunately, the people on the receiving end very often are civilians. there are more than 2000000 civilians are trapped in the conflict soon in east than ukraine. and they're just having to break it out. people going to sending their kids to school. they will have to worry about a tang cello, a mortar, round landing. they're on the grounds of the school bats in the classroom, where the kids are. people going to work must always worry about tang grounds flying into the bus. they're in the public transport, deliver the car into the house. vladimir putin is like and what is happening to a war, cry sort of. so she, i should say the risk of phobias, the 1st step towards genocide,
12:27 pm
what's going on and on bass now very much resembles genocide. we see it and we know about it, or we hear about is these potential plans emanating from the she i of the white house, the british government. these plans that no one previously knew about that russia was planning to invade. a huge area of ukraine was unclear how they would be able to achieve this with, with, even if we believe the caea and others with, with such a small force, a $100000.00 troops is a very unlikely scenario. nevertheless, that speculation at this point they themselves have said that russia hasn't made the decision to invade or you crate. but let's look at what is happening again on the ground. you have the o. s. c, that reporting on c's for violation. so their work is constant and round the clock . ukrainian artillery enforces destroyed or damaged 5 times more civilian infrastructure at schools at workplace as that is people's homes. 5 times more
12:28 pm
infrastructure was destroyed and damaged by ukrainian forces, the vice versa. you also have the situation in which you, ukraine, still still 6 years on, refuses to negotiate with the breakaway republic saying that this isn't something we're going to do because if we talk to them face to face, that would be tantamount to acknowledging them. aside from that, there are also all manner of promises and assurances that you can keeps on hearing from, from britain, from the united states, that they've got their back, that thou help them, that they'll keep the russians away. and what i, what that does is it emboldens you credit. and unfortunately, the situation is such that aside from very one sided coverage, you have a situation in which piece simply isn't desirable. a see correspond there on that saw t's world news at 8 pm live from moscow. reporting phil. my name is kevin owen . thanks so much for checking in this friday evening. wherever you watch around the
12:29 pm
world, stand by to for moral a big story tonight during the sanchez extradition case after the break, a special program documenting the key events of his ongoing struggle for freedom. ah ah. back breaking toil. forced labor stress. industrial injury. corporal punishment.
12:30 pm
oh no words with which we're all familiar. are you certain that the world you live in abolish slavery long ago? that federal survival guide, they can use my own kind of start simply at the federal reserve. so there are you. don't forget about proactive. oh heck, no, what is a recreation came when we get to read 7 years a report scientific knowledge has never been so.
