10:16 am
which is not safe at all. same vaccine, but a different place of manufacture. that's the critical and bizarre problem for tourists going to france, which is only letting in those with the e. you made astrazeneca, jap, not the identical indian manufactured version, and would be, travelers are quite confused. i think the reassurance is clearly defined. vaccine is absolutely identical, despite the facts, it was manufactured in india. the confusion is well juice and trouble, evidently, trouble a lot with my work. and the problem is despite the chest certificate, the telephone application suggests the vaccine or use of a certain type. obviously the numbers suggest differently when he cannot find any clear information on whether or not we can travel because if i sign up a port. busy or an add port to this day, i do not know whether i'll be allowed to leave you,
10:17 am
or when i get to my destination, get checked. will i be allowed to continue? my job, i. the regulators explains the indian made version called covey shield is not on the list as astrazeneca has not given enough data on the manufacturing process. there. however, even those who have had an e u approved shot face difficulties once in france where they still need a health pass to go to public places. these include restaurants and shopping centers, as well as long distance buses and trains to get the pass. you need to be inoculated, and either have a negative pcr test or have recently recovered from coven. the system has sparked street protests, and andy hill again says it adds extra complications that could make a trip to friends too costly for some seems to be some confusion around what the cell phone and also the certificate size in terms of the actual name that explain cold in the case versus the batch number don't match the name and the best number doesn't match what people are saying. so they saying, you know,
10:18 am
cover shields accepted bucks and bare is the batch numbers match co shield, and that's what it said on the certificate. this confusion and complication bear. i don't think the other thing is as well. you know, that could be some significant costs, not so much. the disappointment with my family. i'm not going to get the last minute. non refundable tickets, etc, etc. you know, for the sake of a breakdown in communication, it's frankly ludicrous. the f. b, i failed to protect dozens of child gymnast by not responding earlier to their allegations of abuse penetrate, perpetrated by their teams. doctor. that's the charge of the u. s. department of justice, which says the bureau took more than a year just to launch a probe f b. i since acknowledged its handling as inexcusable. the medic was eventually sentenced to hundreds of years in prison for molesting children as r. t 's ilia tranquil reports. it's an immensely ugly story and a story that's already quite old. on the one hand,
10:19 am
he stands accused is one of the most prolific child molesters in sporting history. some women of team usa gymnastics, say they were forced to endure psychological and physical abuse in the name of olympic glory from young women lining up to face their former doctor. in this high profile case, that is rocking the world of gymnastics. a judge in michigan had slapped a very long sentence on the former's sports doctor. the fact that larry nasser will never walk out of prison alive, thanks to the length of his sentence, may reassure more than 200 of his victims. that justice has been served. indeed, that how many girls and women, if the more he molested during his doctor's career under the guise of giving medical treatment, but the older the story gets the more ugly details about others involved in this disgraceful scandal emerge. the man who once was larry nasser, his boss,
10:20 am
is now facing criminal sexual charges himself. former michigan state gymnastics coach, cathy clay just learned. she's headed to jail for lying to police in the ness. our investigation, who knew that in july 2021, i'll be reporting on another bombshell. a u. s. department of justice probe has found for more than the year after receiving the 1st complaint. the f. b. i pretty much did nothing to deal with the sex abuse claims against dr. nasser. just by the extraordinarily serious nature of the allegations and the possibility that nasa conduct could be continuing senior officials in the indianapolis field office failed to respond to the national legation would be my seriousness and urgency that they deserved and required the actions and inactions of the f b i, employees described in the report, are inexcusable, and a discredit to this organization. what's most shocking is the price paid by the victims during the overlooked 14 months. the sex offender retired as physician of
10:21 am
the u. s. gymnastic steam, but continued in the same role at the michigan state university, a high school and a gymnastics club. delays in legal action against nasser led to the abuse of 70 young female says the d o. j. according to lawyers, that number could be as high as 120. this is a devastating indictment of the f. b. i am the department of justice. the multiple federal agents covered up in the abuse and child molestation. no one seems to give a damn about these little girls. here's another disturbing reminder of what these victims could have been going through. when i was 13, just the kid laying on a table, i miss you. and you for your ungloved hands all over my rear. i slipped into the most private area of my body. i did not know that at the same time larry was
10:22 am
penetrating me. usa gee, was systematically burying reports of sexual assault against member coaches in a file cabinet instead of reporting them. why did you make me hate the one thing i loved so much. why did you take my james away from me? you lie to me and manipulated me to think that when you treated me, you were closing your eyes. because you had been working hard when you are really touching me an innocent child to pledge yourself and who knows how long the of be i would have kept turning a blind eye on this disgrace if it wasn't for a detailed investigative report by the local outlet the indianapolis star plus that coincided with local police finally responding to dozens of complaints from gymnast . but again, real action was more than a year late. moreover, the d o j found that later the special agent in charge of the f b i. indianapolis, field office w. j. abbot live city inspector general's office numerous times about the handling
10:23 am
of the case and a bid to allegedly cover up the investigative mistakes and missteps. agent abbot was never brought to account just like the rest of his team and was allowed to retire with full benefits in 2018. the department of justice now needs to decide if it is going to be yet another institution that fail survivors. or if you're going to enforce some measure of accountability for these crimes, and in that same tweet, the senator is echoing the number one question on everybody's mind. how many athletes would have been spared unimaginable pain if the f b, i had done his job. hey, it's not only those on capitol hill waiting for answers, but the entire nation to will the f. b. i speak out and live up to the expectations. some of the colombian suspected of taking part in the assassination of haiti's president, previously received u. s. military training,
10:24 am
according to the pentagon, several had also been inform, it's for the u. s. drug enforcement agency review for training databases indicates that a small number of the columbia and individuals detained as part of the investigation had participated in past us military training and education programs. while serving as active members of the columbus military forces. katy's president was murdered in his home on july, 7th, and around and around 20 suspects have been detained. the pentagon insists all trainees are committed to human rights and the rule of law. but the head of the institute for justice and democracy in haiti told us washington plays a central role in the countries. bloodshed will not do, even if the us didn't, wasn't involved in the assassination itself. the u. s. was deeply involved in creating the conditions that allowed this assassination to happen. notably, a support for, for the ph d k party. and so what they're asking is that the us stop propping up
10:25 am
a dictatorship in haiti that the us stop talking about sending soldiers, they don't want us soldiers, people who are associated with the a, have been involved in crimes. and there's also been a history of the agents themselves being involved in drug trafficking and other crime in a most human rights groups a long time ago decided that that actually instituted controls was unrealistic and have been calling for, for just deep, just stopping this kind of training, but they continue some of these programs and i think you are continuing to see people who are trained, they're using those skills to commit human rights violations. europe is ditching fossil fuels, at least that's the intention under radical new e u plans. the block says it will stop the sale of petrol powered cars and go carbon neutral all within the next decade. the overarching goal was and of course,
10:26 am
is to make europe the very 1st climate neutral continental world. and to build a new growth strategy to get there. but going green will come at a cost, a new tax on goods coming into the e. u will be used to back local for firms to make the switch to cleaner energy. environmental activists. george barta thinks this is the wrong time for such moods . to carbon budget for a good job to 1.5 degrees, which is all the government claims the rule. that budget runs out in 2027 by 2027. that should be, if we want to say 1.5 degree, if that should be known, we'll carbon emissions. now obviously reaching that because we've delayed action is mainly the lobbying from the industry and the revolving go between the corporations . now looks like an impossible cross that is absolutely what we should
10:27 am
be aiming for. instead of aiming for their carbon is close to 2027 as possible. and bearing mind, you know, even one to 5 degree week just in, in germany, you know, a 100 people died because it's floods from climate change with thing. you're north america on fire, the fire cetera. the, he's already a crime against humanity. and unfortunately, this is more, more delay when we need to real transfer direction. you can find more of your world news stories on our website, r t dot com or by following us on your favorite social media platform. i'll be back with more news in just about 30 minutes. so stay tuned. me. i

10:30 am
ah ah hello and welcome to cross stock. were all things are considered. i'm peter lavelle . cubans experience demonstrations for and against her by the government, many in the us loudly say something must be done. what that something is, is not entirely clear. the fact is, the u. s. has done many things against cuba for decades. namely, the long standing trade embargo, maybe washington should stop trying to help the cuban people for a change. the, the.
