3:01 pm
for a good morning she just past midnight here in moscow if you just joined us this is our team my name's kevin oh in our top story then the trial of egypt's ousted president mohamed morsi has been adjourned until january next year he's been charged with inciting the killing of protesters last december hundreds of the former lead to supporters have been rallying outside the courthouse in cairo amid a heavy police presence of his paulus leader was there for us. the proceedings adjourned to show time because they will start again on january the eighth which to me is bell to tell you inside the court what actually happened there well as we've heard it has been adjourned until the eighth of january in about three months time and then purposive is for the lawyers have a look at these enormous case files this is said to be his biggest find to six thousand pages long and all the lawyers concerned both those opposing mostly in his aides and those against him in the trial haven't had an opportunity to look at
3:02 pm
those files yet so they need their time in addition mostly hasn't actually had any access to his know if he's been kept since he was ousted incommunicado in an indication today was the first time that we've seen him it was the first time is lawyers have seen him i learned speaking to the different noise there are grounds to charge him and the people there on grounds of incitement to kill protesters and looking at the evidence is not entirely political although obviously is being carried out in quite a politicized way what was the atmosphere like inside the courtroom when he was equally as charged as soon as we saw the members of the missing brotherhood and the political aides of mohamed morsi and of course ahmed mostly himself the whole place erupted into contrasting chants the missing brotherhood themselves mohamad mostly said they do not read recognize this court they say that illegitimate and that the most he remains the president of egypt meanwhile those who are standing against him the legal teams against him are saying execution execution he must return to jail is extremely raucous and there one point a fight broke out between journalists and law is the lawyers of mohamed morsy
3:03 pm
accused of genocide being paid by the state one journalist got up on to the side of the side and basically almost threw his shoes at the lawyer so it was extremely charged it was very tense at the mission brotherhood kept repeating and mohamed morsi care beating he was a loser just a bit president that this was a fake trial that this was a political trial and the really the just missing needed to prevail in this case needed to and as you say most he keeps insisting that this is a fake trial which is the reason that he says he will be defending himself have. he said that there's some twenty five lawyers that are participating for the defense but only ten of them have actually been given access to the clients of course morsi is standing accused of inciting murder alongside thirteen and the muslim brotherhood supporters this is widely seen as a political trial of course tensions here are running high and you get across nor heard to call those twitter pages following all the developments in cairo for us.
3:04 pm
the in the. one. that remind you of the time line in twenty eleven the egyptian revolution saw a long time leader hosni mubarak step down followed by a year of political turmoil in june twenty. first democratically elected president whoever is pushed for that is limited by a constitution sparked deadly unrest in december of the same year violence that erupted again up to this summer and the morsy protest has prompted the military to oust the islamist leader followed then by the vicious crackdown on muslim brotherhood supporters in which thousands were killed what for some perspective on this now let's talk to hugh miles he's a journalist and author of focusing on the middle east where the morning to egypt remains divided despite everything that's going on here president morsi says this trial is not legitimate what do you think is it or not. well i think it's impossible to have a trial in such a situation i don't think there are trials for the president's military rule. i
3:05 pm
mean it's clearly a political trial and in my view what they ought to be doing is seeking to reconcile with the muslim brotherhood trying to form a inclusive government rather than continuing to persecute and prosecute them like this which i don't think it's going to resolve yet because it you know the one side we've got morsi saying he's still the president there's big questions over the military and did they have the right and the day to oust him like that a lot of people avoiding calling it a coup still a lot of people just treading very carefully around that word but if they don't negotiate where is this going to head do you think what do you. well the problem is if they don't negotiate then the muslim brotherhood has the power to make the country ungovernable and the country is almost all going to anyway and the muslim brotherhood can bring it to its knees through civil action and the like. what we
3:06 pm
will see is the lack of progress towards. the goals of the revolution towards social justice and prosperity and what it will mean is in maybe six months or one year we will see a million people back on the streets again calling for change so we just and then the pendulum will swing in the other direction and it could be the army who out in the muslim brotherhood pretty even conceivably seems just unbelievable today that they could come back and think that would be a very easy coalition that if they did wouldn't you. may in the meantime in the short term this is costing egypt an awful lot of cash money the u.s. has stopped. quite a big proportion of it there because of this long is that going to last for do you think those restrictions these penalties. well you are. not is significant but the fact is the gulf arabs have stocked up with very very long
3:07 pm
packages of cash and oil and gas. or the other things the egyptians desperately need in the short time. does not have a financial problem and the financial problem the hanging over the policy government has been replaced by this new program which is the strength of disintegration kind of a slide into civil war. money is no longer the problem i mean the danger is that quite a lot of these go for foreign backers who fear the muslim brotherhood and have a big problem with the muslim brotherhood in their own countries have given the money to egypt on the condition that the egyptian government persecute the muslim brotherhood and this is problematic. big it encourages the muslim brotherhood not to reconcile and indeed if the egyptian government did not have money coming in from overseas then it would probably be more likely to reconcile with the muslim brotherhood not because it would have to in order to make
3:08 pm
the country work what a majority of the people want there a final thought would go to the already got the two former leaders on trial at the same time talking about all the troubles they going through here what is it like what is life like for every day gyptian what do the majority want do you think right now. well the majority of egyptians are in the middle as bell canada which brings. sort of a party based on the sofa watching t.v. and it is there is it all just. extreme minority who support the islamists an extreme minority who are diehard only supporters that i mean i think the vast majority directions just care about getting the next meal on the table this is very much a country where risk politics is worked out people need clean drinking water they need food and they don't know that they don't have much beyond that they'll vote for anyone who can vote those places you miles cheerless more thanks for the line tonight good thoughts. seven human rights organizations from around the globe are
3:09 pm
sounding the alarm of the erosion of freedom in britain they've written an open letter now to the u.k. prime minister blasting the government's response to surveillance leaks. more on their appeal. well some very strong words for the prime minister there from those human rights organizations and they're fighting back against what they call the eroding of fundamental rights in the now let's take a look over some of the main points that that letter raises and their concerns center around the use of terrorism legislation against david miranda when he was detained at heathrow airport they also talk about the sustained pressure against media organizations reporting the edward snowden leaks the guardian newspaper has come under a huge amount of pressure you cast your mind back they had government officials actually enter their building and destroy the hard drives now i think a very interesting point that the lesson makes is over the potential violation of
3:10 pm
freedom of expression now this is the argument we hear the u.k. government use a lot when they're condemning the leaks being published that it's damaging national security in the cain iraq permissible limits to freedom of expression and person freedoms according to national security and there will prescribed in international law our concern is that the u.k. government has simply gone way beyond what those normal prescribed limits are now in the letter it says that the protection of national security can be a legitimate reason for limiting the freedom of expression but and this is the really important point that governments must demonstrate that the expression actually harms the national security not simply enough for them to say that it will now coming up this week we're going see the heads of m i five m i six and t.c.h. key questioned in an open evidence session that's going to be broadcast by a public satellite leg so this debate certainly not going away however much you can
3:11 pm
imagine u.k. government will be wishing it will right now and of course we'll be bringing you all those developments as they happen. you know that's in a couple of days time meantime cia can try to turn whistleblower edward snowden has released a manifesto calling on the world what hold laws and values which limits surveillance protect human rights he also slammed the u.s. and u.k. spy agencies as the worst offenders the text appeared in a german magazine it was sent the editors from moscow by an encrypted channel of his paper all of it as more of a leak a statement. the spy can't be allowed to dictate our politics that's according to whistleblower edward snowden writing in the major german news weekly beagle he's put forward what he called his manifesto for truth and which he condemns the security agencies around the world that have set out to smear not only him but also those journalists that have published his articles in various publications around the world he also saying that we need to stop this kind of spying culture that is
3:12 pm
taken over it's all part of a major major set of articles about edward snowden in this in the german paper it comes on the back of their support for edward snowden here in germany and in a massive increase we've seen a group of over fifty senior public figures calling for him actually to be to be granted asylum here in germany now the article it does say that something that perhaps the current german government wouldn't support because suggesting that some of the skeletons in their own closet could come out if there was any big investigation into just exactly what had gone on in terms of the n.s.a. spying program however among those fifty that say it's not and should should come to should be allowed to come to germany is one that says one senior former german politician saying edward snowden has done a great service to the western world and now it's up to us to help him so huge
3:13 pm
support for snowden and he's laying out his ideas right here in the german press. well peter ponders the russophone article the white house has rejected any idea of clemency saying he violated the law and should come back to the us and face justice it was no no insists calls to reform intelligence gathering agencies prove he was justified in leaking classified data so blowed man's head of the national security will suppose coalition told me wildly to still won't take any real action against washington everybody is talking about what has been happening it turns out and they say has been collecting information everybody's talking about what has been targeted all these people have been targeted whether it's bill or holland or president or mexico but what we don't have and grab is extremely important because that will be a trial about what kind of reaction and how action you know when to see these
3:14 pm
countries from these leaders is the content and there is extremely important this is not a very formation has not been really so well that's why we don't see really more action from any leaders because being our witness in here the information given to me and i was based how on earth not only your marriage views the economic situation isn't as feelings or military feelings were also equal by the united states government with the power to blackmail. just ahead when cash is king u.k. artistic kratz and left on the breadline. three hundred point the people who it was i mean. i'm not i don't have many skilful i can sell teammates the blue bloods too and i'm feeling the economic pinch is just ahead.

3:17 pm
a thorn in relations between tehran and washington a sign that the iranian leadership is keen to initiate warmer times with the global community but not everyone is keen for this to happen. hard line conservative protesters threw eggs at the president upon his return to tehran a malveaux is uncomfortable with the idea of increased diplomacy with washington have launched the first ever down with the usa contest the idea is to find the most creative anti us propaganda contestants are invited to submit photographs posters caricature poems hymns and blogs all relating to the slogan down with the usa over three thousand. dollars are up for grabs for the winner there will be a prize for the best idea to mark death of america which will renew the concept of death to america because of the arrogance of america the message is clear for as long as the us policies are hostile to us we will continue to use the slogan. well
3:18 pm
the slogan first came to prominence during the one nine hundred seventy nine iranian revolution when the u.s. backed government was overthrown and since then it's been widely used by critics of washington those critics now fear a hollies willingness to reengage with the u.s. could undermine the revolution they also see no reason to start diplomacy with a country that for years has portrayed iran as the enemy and subject of the country to harsh economic sanctions over its nuclear program states like the us and their terrorist allies constitute an axis of evil this administration has systematically imposed the toughest sanctions on iraq on iran ever the united states is not going to lift the sanctions until it is clear that a very very fireball accountable transparent process is in place despite efforts by the us government to suggest these sanctions aren't affecting the general population food clothes and even basic medicines have rocketed in price in recent
3:19 pm
years on the leadership's attempt to engage with washington has led to anti american slogans and banners appearing all over tehran in recent weeks with rouhani demanding many be taken down and with talks over iran's nuclear program looming large later this week it's not just the international community president rouhani has to convince police got r.t. . this from an associate of the time on the sanctions against iran have been forced by the european union america or many other powers to the u.n. security council passed several resolutions adding to the measures which include bans own heavy arms supplies and also nuclear technology the destructions to range from the gold trade to oil imports we tell america has gone as far as an almost total embargo on energy products financial institutions and aircraft parts all this that has crippled iran's economy and cause the national currency to plummet despite all this a former advisor to iran's nuclear negotiator says irradiance is still not sold on
3:20 pm
rouhani is diplomatic initiative. there's a group in iran that is deeply suspicious of the united states based on his history of longstanding animosity toward iran is there widespread perception in iran that the u.s. is engaged in a double speak toward iran on the one hand parking about engagement and respecting iran's rights and on the other hand adopting a very inflexible and hard line negotiation a strategy that demands much concession from iran without expressing willingness to you know show. any flexibility on the issue of sanctions relief we have seen a statement by the top u.s. negotiator wendy sherman that the u.s. has not offered any tangible sanctions relief to iran at the last negotiation round in geneva and that should be very disheartening to many iranians who are

3:23 pm
a similar rally. a crowd of up to eight thousand of rallies here in moscow in a so-called russia march organized by the country's nationalist at least thirty people were arrested for wearing masks and shouting nazi slogans until my ground has been filled by the recent killing of a russian man by a migrant worker from central asia that instant spark violence across moscow and a clamp down on illegal immigrants. something completely different next britain's artistic krutz may live in the homes some of them anyway but all that splendid comes with some crushing maintenance bills too in some cases the remainder take menial jobs to make ends meet. one such breadline. when one speaks of the british aristocracy be traditional a landed gentry or noble little what would imagine a lavish lifestyles and grand estate as it would have been centuries ago but the reality today is not quite up to par as it would have been in the past.
