4:01 am
the waters of our. first six. thanks for joining us here on. a new leak from the fancy bears hacking group is claiming to question the basis of the doping allegations against russian athletes we get more details on this now i'm joined live with. here in the studio good morning to you what else what exactly i should say his has actually been revealed well there are many elements of these leaks mostly these are e-mails that were found by the activist group fancy bears one of the crucial elements is actually an e-mail that supposedly was put together just before the rio games two thousand and sixteen we cannot verify the authenticity of the message for now but it is believed to be from a brazilian doping lab or tree professor and he was writing to the doping test
4:02 am
volatile manufacturer complaining about serious flaws and these bottles so let's have a look at a bit of that e-mail. did it weird situation this happened the rio twenty sixteen berlinger bottles seem not all to be stand it did not fit the. force in them resulted in breakage of the cap and sometimes it can be used to close the able to look after our quoting e.g. photos you now. have a record of this kind of non-conformity so henri if the letter is to be believed according to dr ratner opening the bottles for the actual tests could cause damage and this is the point where i want to go back to all these bands that the russian winter athletes have been receiving in the last few months and that is just ahead of the winter games. besides the testimonies besides all the
4:03 am
things that mr rochon code was saying what was the cornerstone element of the i.o.c. evidence or basically the only forensic evidence from them that is the bottle damage the scratches on the saatchi bottles and in this case i can tell you that berlinger that's the manufacturer that supposedly dr rather was e-mailing it was the same manufacturer for saatchi and the same model of the bottles a new version in a way but the model was the same so i can also remind you that neither the mcclaren team nor the investigators that were appointed by the to really make the decisions on the story to investigate the cases in the doping samples of the russian athletes stay never showed us the visual proof of that so we are now trying to get in touch with that professor to see what else he can say but apparently judging from that email there could have been flaws with the bottle so questions can be raised
4:04 am
another element that i want to bring up here is email exchanges again we cannot verify the authenticity or confirm that these emails are real but we're trying to do that right now it was. the e-mail exchanges between the soprano family which are former russian track and field athletes and the i.o.c. these people according to this exchange could have received financial incentives from the international olympic committee for their testimonies for instance miss mrs dupont sorry was actually granted scholarship from the i.o.c. and this is something that no one gets once they were caught in dubbing and obviously she was in that case plus there was payment for accommodation and tickets while she was heading to was on through geneva lobbies the because there's no airport and moves on to give these testimonies but again we're going to be looking into these e-mails and trying to get in touch with this people to verify if they're
4:05 am
real or not but this indeed raises a lot of questions if they are to be believed a lot of questions on many levels just how far down does the rabbit hole go to use their leverage and thank you. green campaigners are claiming victory after the french government finally abandoned a decades old plan to build a new airport in the city of najaf opponents claim it would have harmed key environmental areas a protest group called zone to defend was first formed forty five years ago to fight these plans they stepped up their efforts in two thousand and eight setting off what would become europe's largest squatter at the site announcing the no decision about the airport the prime minister said the stiff opposition made the project impossible. mithun foam we will put a stop to the no go zone which has flourished in this area for nearly ten years illegal occupants will have to leave voluntarily a few weeks before spring or they will be evicted but the government will pour

resources into modernizing the existing nine to airport and extending its runway as suggested by mediators between the two sides last month i mean it was impossible to go ahead with the original plans given the climate of bitter opposition between two sides of the population that are nearly equal in size. our correspondent charlotte once gave president the site and talk to the squatters who despite this victory have no plans to leave. fields and trees roll past as we head to not true don de land is hardly a house in sight all seems peaceful but appearances are often deceptive for almost a decade this land has been a battlefield over the french government's plans to build a multi-million euro airport.
4:07 am
off the failed to vixens in clashes with the police the government has finally given in there will be no. was we come to the focal point of the celebrations of sashimi this is where people have come together now to celebrate the fact that the french prime minister most decided to cancel much decision to build an airport on this line as you can see people are filling this space dancing singing this is a victory they say it's a victory they want to savor but how sweet that victory may feel now it may not feel sweet much longer as the french prime minister has also said that all of the people who've been sporting here since two thousand and eight will have to evacuate the sites but the people here say they will defend their right to live in the lands that they now call their home. you'd love to be defending this territory we're
4:08 am
going to stay if the government tries to victor us using force it will see the year twenty twelve repeat itself. we are not going to leave our ground just like that we won the first battle now is the second. despite this victory some members of this informal and illegal community still want to remain anonymous these squatters have been called radicals by the french government and some media has even labeled them. so all day. i don't know what it means to be radical for them it means we're with knife between ready to cut the throats of everyone against our movement and it's ridiculous. for now the celebrations continue but all is still no one nearby hundreds of homes
