a hospital. he said he did that to draw attention to a custody battle between the facility and the parents of a child being kept there without their consent. golf felt recently turn to us after he was denied telephone access to his lawyers. me. mr. golf phillips wife said communication with his lawyer was cut off shortly after he wrote an article published an rti website in the piece. he describes cases of mistreatment of the prison he's being held in. the authorities don't say the restrictions were simply down to changes in their covert policy. we discussed the case with martin gods, phillips wife, dana barnett, bryan, a journalist and activists who was himself imprisoned in connection with a detail leak. they read all of his mail. so they had a heads up on what was coming they shouldn't it's legal privilege mail,
1:03 am
but i guess i guess they were aware he has multiple attorneys who are trying to get in touch with him for meetings about strategic matters. he answered an appeal and other legit and other stuff in court and they just can't reach him. they're telling him that they catherine sir felt his that bureaus prison lawyer is telling them that she can only let him speak to them if they have upcoming court deadlines . whereas she's not applying that requirement to any of the other. it's laurie himself over throughout the entire he was imprisonment, has been retaliated against 4 other articles. he's written or lawsuits. he has filed against the system against the visual wardens and so forth. having done for years and feds myself, the ropers in the u. s. for my activism and having written, calling from prison. i've been in prisons where there wasn't
1:04 am
a lot. i've been in prisons where, you know, i was, i was pulled off the phone what the course of doing interview media interview and been put in the shoe for doing that interview and then release after investigation . you know, 2 weeks later i was re arrested because these orders in 2017, for getting interview advice after i got out of prison. no one has been involved in activism. should be tried in the us, north gosh, where there. and it just did the record of the us saw it on this is just a mentally vile 7 years ago martin got spelled hack the computer servers of boston childrens hospital. he said his actions were he and exposing a month long cuts to be possible between the facility and the parents of 15 year old justina peltier. just seeing his mother and father had been disputing her diagnosis by doctors, which they had changed from a red blood disorder to a mental condition and forcibly separated the teenage girl from her family. justina
1:05 am
was eventually reunited with her parents after a public outcry. but god felt was arrested and these know serving a 10 year term of as soon as the community management unit. now these units were created as part of the war and terror swear, dubbed by the media. little guantanamo. all communications with the outside world are monitored unrestricted, while typical inmates include terrorists, those linked to piracy and also mafia members. godchild wife claims his placement. there is staggeringly excessive and highlighted issues. her husband hard with the judge, hearing the case. i think that's what really set him off. was it marty? expose his conflicts of interest in the case. judge. nathaniel gordon donate to the adoption agency that often partners and has received donations from boston childrens hospital. and it's likely the agency that they would have used to get
1:06 am
just adopted into another family. remember they took the custody away from just the parents made her aware of the state. and then the next step is to get her adopted into another family. the government wanted to use the where were terrorist and the judge said, no, we did try to nathaniel gordon who hates marty. said you can't use that word. that's not what this was. but after trial, they put him in a unit for terrorists. it makes no sense even if previous prison, correctional officers recognize that this is a political case. i think that's why he's in the c. m u, you know, we've been on the story for a few days just to give you a sense of the response. we've been getting, we contacted both the judge, the adoption center for comments, we have none from them. we also asked leading human rights organizations both in the u. s. and worldwide for their take on mr. gospels case, the european court of human rights and human rights watch till this. they cannot
1:07 am
comment on the issue. we discussed the story with the executive director of the human rights defense center. paul, right? this is the law behind martin got felt imprisonment is open to different interpretations. probably a lot of other laws is that it doesn't require necessarily, a malicious attempt to, you know, to access a computer. and the last name is vert, fairly vague. in terms of what to prescribe, the government, i think, is very happy with the hacked because the united states, you know, benefit greatly from the big laws that they can basically twist to meet the circumstances of the day or, or whatever it is for seeking to accomplish a moment and the united states is especially in the last 30 years or so has become almost expert at drafting and imposing very broadly. we're to date was that impose, you know, fairly devastating sentences. golf else wasn't on the 1st case. headline. so the
1:08 am
computer fraud and abuse act came into force and schwartz, the activist and harvard research fellow was charged under the cna with numerous violations at 1st facing up to 35 years in jail, for downloading and releasing academic journals to make them available for all the case drove him to suicide journalists, matthew keys spent 2 years in prison for providing login detail us to a news website that resulted in the crime of the headline being to go through actions also had consequences, though his intentions may have been good and the resulting damage arguably, minimal, this crime, he was jailed alongside the very worst and the penal system among them both convicted of involvement with terrorism, piracy, and matthew membership. his unit is commonly called guantanamo north, which gives you some idea of life inside. the communications management unit is
1:09 am
established to house inmates who due to their current defense of conviction, fence conduct or other verified information, require increased monitoring of communications with persons in the community to protect the safety, security, and orderly operation of bureau facilities and protect the public golf felt as complained of being placed in solitary confinement just for voice and concerns about the treatment of inmates among those failings in the hands of code cases, which have led to prison a death. he also accuses prison, staff of punitive measures blocking his communication with lawyers and media. i was a journalist in prison for, for 13 years, for many years in washington state. i was routinely retaliated against and punished for being critical of prison officials on some respect. i think that probably goes with the territory and is the norm, i think in general, bureaucrats was pretty much total on check. power tend to not few favorably,
1:10 am
those who question that power and then the abuses of that power. so i was say, it was certainly would surprise me if he were needing retaliated by prison officials. gospel case will continue to draw attention and discussion. do ends justify means, should activists acting on a good intentions, altruism be treated equally with korea criminals? how many broken lives does it take the reform obsolete laws? and how much difference can the actions of one person on a mission really make me huge privacy concern said bond over apples plans to start scanning u. s. i forms for child abuse, pictures. it follows years of pressure from success of american governments demanding increased surveillance of encrypted data. additionally, new safety protection tools will warn children on their parents when sending or
1:11 am
receiving sexually explicit photos. apple with automatically scanned for child abuse related material even before it's uploaded to the icloud storage service. now if cases are confirmed, the user's account will be deactivated and the national center for missing and exploited children. notified whistleblower edward snowden has weighed in on the issue condemning the tech giant's new policy. unbelievable apple now circulating a propaganda letter describing the internet white opposition to the decision to start checking the private files on every i phone against a secret government blacklist as the screeching voices of the minority. this has become a scandal to say that we are disappointed by apple's plans is an understatement. apples compromise on end to end encryption, may piece government agencies in the u. s. and broad. but is a shocking about face for users who rely on the company's leadership and privacy
1:12 am
and security. we discussed the issue further. let's wider relevant patients with a panel of experts. what kind of algorithm are they going to use? that is able to scan billions of images and then segregate something that is not, let's say, a bear skin rug photo or some form of accept. i don't know what acceptable nudity is, but something that is innocence, something that is not in any way in the fairness. how is it going to be able to determine what is and isn't appropriate? they'll be looking for, according to reports i've seen, known and already classified and joe sex abuse, images and which is like and that database and how those algorithms are used to search computers. this season, search like apple is refused to open. the front can be a back door to the encryption following cases of, of terrorism, thus murder,
1:13 am
rapes, kid not being what happened suddenly with this particular cause. yes, it is a good causing an important cause that makes our poll, you know, just go completely the other way in. i think the answer is, is that apple is probably exploiting the subject of child exploitation in order to enroll something that it feels. this is the only way to sugar coated few think you will have some kind of privacy interest in this. if you think that this photo and your cloud belongs to you, and you can tell the company that you've contract it, either through their hardware or whatever that to, to back off and stay out of your business. i mean, are we, are we serious? do we really think this even remotely as possible for us to tell big tech to back off, leave us alone stay. i don't want affairs, it's already done. it's are the fact that they're even saying they're saying they
1:14 am
don't even have to tell us they're doing this. we know it. there are billions of users around the world. the vast majority have not got any sexual abuse imagery, and so they don't need to worry about that. old damage is going to be scan. where are they going to go next? well, they going to look for the trigger word. so all the things, well, the images and all the things, where are they going to draw a line in this whole is becoming a de facto agency of the government. even though they say we're not going to hand over information to the police. the 1st the will but, but, but in any event, there will be sharing the information with other government agencies. so, so then now becoming an agent of the state, more than 150 demonstrations are set to take place throughout france this saturday, against president microns, mandatory coded by condition plans. numerous trade unions including medical
1:15 am
groupings are rallying their members against the move earlier in the week. people in paris, voice their anger and the streets. after francis constitutional consul rule, the government moves the legal. but it's not only in france where such plans are provoking eyer, as peter oliver reports from his brain for another weekend to protest, to be the 4th in a row. the me on thursday, the french constitutional counsel ruled in favor of a change to the law. that will make sure that a health path has to be shown in order to answer cafe bars. restaurants, even long distance trains are those places to the list that already included
1:16 am
cultural sites like museums, theaters, and cinemas, with more than 50 people in attendance. while over half of the population supports the youth of these health classes. there is a small but very vocal minority who vehemently opposed to them much. i see this is a betrayal for french people. it's segregation in the form of an off site with the vaccinated on one side and unvaccinated on the other. i speak on behalf of everyone, a little angry. it's not that we against the vaccine, but we have no one said because it is only 6 months old. it's called the fund. it's come to us because the french don't want it. we know very well that in the constitutional council that people are close to power and will not go against power . in france, the 7 day average for new covert cases is solidly over $20000.00 per day. in germany, it's one to 2 and a half 1000, but wising steadily,
1:17 am
the health minister again spawn is to implement new restrictions before cases get to the levels seen in from a must school and negative tests should be required for essential things such as traveling on public transport going to the town hall over the single hospital, but nightclubs visiting stadiums or go into the theater places. as a more of a luxury, i can only imagine entry being granted to those people who have been vaccinated or tested for hope. is that by prioritizing the vaccinated when it comes to access to public spaces, serious cases of covert will be reduced. mr. bucks, a 3 g approach for those that are in which means vaccinated detested, who are being tested, or get ne isn't who have recovered. although that could be revised down to 2 g approach should cases rise, including only the vaccinated and those who have recovered from coven. but this policy has been roundly jumped on as draconian and overly exclusionary by
1:18 am
politicians, including those who are in coalition with german health minister spawn i think it is wrong and legally invalid to exclude those who are not vaccinated from public life. no one should be excluded. instead we need to convince people the berlin government policies haven't gone down well with a section of the german population who are involved in crashes with police. the protest had been found by german court and police officers, a facing investigation for a heavy handed response to the crowd. italy, is it a more similar situation to germany than from when it comes to code case? because from friday, you need to present a covert past due in to a whole rest of places. 5 minutes to druggie pushing vaccination is the only way to avoid further locked down. the delta vary interest threatening is spreads much more quickly than other variance. without vaccinations, we'd have to close everything again here of continue to fight,
1:19 am
not only against the virus itself, but against the policies that are being put in place to try and stop it spread feature over off the terrace. ok to another of a headline stories today. the parents of a brain damage 2 year old toddler have lost their appeal up. they should be in court of human rights. they are trying to stop a u. k. hospital withdrawing the life support treatment for their little girl on their lawyer spoke to us. no parents would want to be in this position and they competed by their family, that community and they are keeping this parish office as best they can a but it is obviously a very tricky situation. her condition has been stable for 2 years. now. we know that taking her by a transform will not be
1:20 am
a detriment to her. what we have piece at the hospital will agree that little to can be transferred to, to israel and to a hospital all for hi repeat to a willing to look after the parents of alta fix. lar who are acidic jews say with growing her life support goes against their religious faith. they want to take her either to israel or the u. s. for assessment and possible treatment. the u. k. hospital say she has no chance of recovery. that such a journey would only bring her quote further pain. the family's lawyer again, it lines his thoughts about the grouping quotes, judgment. when you take the case to the european court, you're affectively taking the case against the government. because you are saying that the processes that we used were wrong and should have been, should have been better, they weren't properly applied. and so the position in
1:21 am
a case like this is one where very often cases to the european court of human rights successful. so it was one where you're asking the court to look at processes and procedures and it's, it's easier in a way for the european court of human rights to say, well, actually we don't, we don't find this is a problem here than actually getting into the minucci case still ahead in the program ceiling to a new record, the highest daily figure for illegal migrants making the journey across the english channel from mainland europe to the u. k. is set more likely to ah,

1:24 am
u. k. cities including london and manchester. many of the new arrivals have come from the countries of the high levels of corona virus. british travelers still have to fork out nearly 2000 pounds for mandatory quarantine and a hotel is coming from a red list. country reports have also merged, claiming that hundreds of migraines, thing and hotels had been breach in quarantine rules due to poor security enforcement and the premises. some security guards even admitted that they could not control quarantine because they do not know who is supposed to be self isolating. we decided to try and catch up with some of the migraines, whose hotel stays, are being funded by the british taxpayer. and it looks like we have to call the police if you'd only like for private property, no luck enough. first attempt, we were asked to leave the premises immediately after kingston remove more centrally to london school system district, managed to speak to refugee from libya. he told me he's allowed to leave his room for a cigarette during quarantine to go out. so we had

a r t london, an investigation into the conduct of new york governor under cool mo is drawing to a close. he's been given an august 13th deadline to provide any additional material in his defense after which the investigative committee will decide if he's to be in peach. now. it follows allegations of sexual harassment. the mishandling of the kobe crisis in nursing homes will most fellow democrats, even president biden himself have called for the governor to resign. governor andrew cuomo, sexually harass multiple women, and in doing so violated federal, and state law. i never touched anyone inappropriately or made inappropriate sexual advances. most important thing right now is for the governor to resign. think you should the people of new york, is there a better leadership in the governor's office? we continue to believe that the governor should resign. on tuesday,
1:27 am
the new york state attorney general published details alleging that cuomo had committed assaults against the 11 women in his office, including cases of unwanted touching kissing the inappropriate comments. the actions are considered a violation of both state and federal laws, but there is currently no criminal investigation planned. andrew cuomo denies all allegations. earlier this year, the attorney general find their cuomo administration, how they attempted to hide the cobra mortality rate in nursing homes. thousands of deaths had been under reported, which led to a public outcry, but again, there has been no legal consequences for the governor. so far. we discuss the issue with the daughter of a man who died in a nursing home at the height of the covert crisis. she's calling for lawmakers to hold como responsible if team fell, then people died. and everybody just cares about governor cuomo, due process. governor cuomo didn't afford my father and 15000 innocent people do
1:28 am
processed when he signed their death warrants and sentenced them to death in nursing homes. governor cuomo shows a deprived indifference for life. it doesn't matter if it's a young girl that works in his office, or if it's an elderly person and we need to hold him accountable for all of his crimes. i put that out there to our lawmakers, to please mention over 15000 people who have no voice. somebody needs to stand up for them and be their voice. and i do believe we're going to see that in his, in his impeachment, trial, or early weekend business update next day, close for the stories that affect the money in your pocket. in moments, me the as we were saying, shipping all of our jobs factors in china with
