4:02 am
that time the rebels said that these offers were insincere and could not be trusted so certainly a lot of mistrust between both sides neither willing to be the first to lay down arms but on the diplomatic side to side he just some picture is emerging we are hearing from the country from a prime minister mr. baby that lines of communication have been opened and that they're hoping to intensify them they say that they are talking with the british the french and the americans to reach some kind of mutual settlement that would see the stopping of killings of civilians now we are hearing the same line coming out of london it has confirmed that in recent weeks it has been meeting in private with several high ranking libyan officials we know that just on wednesday mohammed ismail who is a trusted aide of the death the sound was in london he was trying to organize what we understand some kind of exit strategy for the gadhafi family that landed insisting that any kind of deal any kind of settlement plan would have to include gadhafi himself stepping down we're hearing from doctors on the front line and some

a fighter to the end and it seems extraordinary that the losing opposite the opposition forces while they are losing the war would try to dictate the terms of surrender to the party to its winning which is the united nations has jumped into this conflict before they were before they understood who they were teaming up with they did not understand anything about this opposition force the opposition force is not highly motivated they may be passionate in their politics but they are not highly organized on the battlefield essentially you're going to have to have a ground war to remove gadhafi. well meanwhile some say the policy of double standards may play into the hands of war criminals while leaders around the world continue to rally against moammar gadhafi and some of the posturing that sometimes you just can't escape punishment for the crimes they commit. also really prisoners

4:10 am
decision about libya it's not the basis for decisions about georgia about palestine about kosovo the question of who is held responsible and how is very much a strategic question it's not a legal question as it should be to boost its strategic importance among other things georgia has dispatched one thousand troops to join allied forces in afghanistan and became the leading troop contributor relative to georgia's overall population soundless and as this foxx. interview shows almost unstoppable praise of the u.s. is also believed to have played a role in the west supporting saakashvili no matter what his crimes and there's his life because based on break the same america and more more the right to grow throughout the religion of mr president for a graduation the restaurateur you now is the world has declared a no fly zone over libya to stop could offie many wonder why
4:11 am
a no fly zone was never on the table when the georgian president launched his dad the campaign or when israel bombed the gas it was three weeks in a row on the question for example of gaza where you had a blatant act of aggression clearly a violent massive violation of not only international human rights norms but war crimes crimes against humanity being created fourteen hundred people killed of whom or the nine hundred were civilians more than three hundred were children it was a horrific situation that went on for days the problem there is that israel is the protector protectorate of the united states and the u.s. is not going to allow any united nations or anyone else to actually engage in a serious way in stopping that massacre you would think if a leader commits atrocities he would be treated like they could benefit denounced banned from travel at least that's not the way politics works the georgian

this film company are not up to it they don't have enough cars and vans and so on to get food to the site well them that in a big wealthy country like japan there are other ways to do it and yet the government just seems to just unwilling to make a move beyond what some direct threats in the electrical company are telling them of their many problems not only the variations one of the curious questions is why are they staying at a facility that is subject to radio actually just five hundred meters from the site . there have got to been ways to bring in tents to build temporary shelter say a long kilometer or even two which will lower the amount of radioactivity that they're exposed to the issue is not so much what the electrical company did or didn't do but why the central government seems unwilling that's not scandalous and politically charged trial in georgia has ended with an israeli

investor being sentenced to seven years in jail only flukes who was charged of bribery contains the things other george will perform and which who's the investor one hundred million dollars. respects. rony folks is not only a major investor in georgia he's also an on record so in turkey a position combining both economic development and all the rocker diplomacy he worked as an oil trader in new york for some people teen years and yes he invested huge amounts of cash in georgia back in the one nine hundred ninety s. now of course rising before him up till the last year he received an invitation to visit george air from the prime minister of the country himself now why surprisingly because teen years rooney folks has been demanding one hundred million dollars from georgia the money which georgia owes him for a bridge to grammont on construction of an oil pipeline back in the ninety's now
4:16 am
a court in london earlier that year ruled that georgia indeed should pay the money back but georgian authorities but obviously didn't want to pay that money to rony folks here believe that invitation is just a formality to put an end to this fifteen year old dispute well shortly before that visit in quite a read see a hotel room and turkey there was an official meeting between rooney folks and georgian authorities and then they reached a verbal agreement after drinking a lot of cognac. would receive only seventy two million dollars instead of ninety eight george owed him but on one critical condition in return he gives seven million dollars back now the criminals reached only one for a mallet he was allowed to come over to georgia shake hands with the prime minister and finalize the deal now minutes after that happened in front of georgian t.v. cameras row need folks and his business associates were arrested so the question is
4:17 am
how do you combat a businessman who georgios that huge amount of cash and up in a d.c. prison while the lure of only folks as it was a trap very. wisely set out by me himself there was in fact a. cooperation and collaboration between four important ministries of the government and probably with the approval of the president of the ministry of finance the ministry of justice or the ministry of the interior and the prime minister's office all of which came together. with the plan to intro road if you fuchs was that informed through diplomatic channels that he would not be released until the arbitration award was waived now shortly after rhony folks and his business partner what they were all for it runs and what could be called the ransom was put on the table now do just that but he could be released but me it's
4:18 am
a kilt and if he gave the money back but rooney folks refused to do either now we know that georgianna wants the world to believe that it's on a war against corruption and really personally wants to attract foreign investment into the country so of course here saved this one hundred million dollars obviously but the question is how much will he lose because not all foreign investors will help to think twice before bringing money into this country but the controversial case may well deter other potential investors from doing business in the country that's according to. the leader of the conservative party of georgia. right no it's a signal not only for israeli businessmen but also i think for european business for american businessmen paid if you are looking corrupt to doing sweet georgian government seeking to do business in georgia the same signal was the i think it was four years ago when the officer was thrown in the market of stories the center of
