5:07 am
a healthy skill to work environment. as we've been tabi on pfizer trial. i don't think it was good clean data. the employee said of the dates of ins. harvey generated for the pfizer trial. it's a crazy mess. those are some pretty serious concerns, but let me give you the full picture. these were comments that the journal received anonymously from former employees of one of the firm's tasks with carrying out the pfizer vaccine trial vent avia. the authors got in touch with them while investigating the claims of a whistleblower who had worked for vent audio for a couple of weeks before being fired, supposedly in connection with sounding the alarm over. quite a list of issues including things like this with both
5:08 am
the whistleblower provided the journal with internal company documents, photos and audio recordings to back up her concerns. i do have to say though, we've not seen them in the article or received access some other way. and obviously it wasn't up to was to supervise an american contractor on a pivotal trial of one of the world's most widely known jobs. the question is, did the u. s. government agency and charge the food and drug administration know about any of that? within ours, jackson, we received an email from the sta, thanking her for her concerns, and notifying her to the f. d. a could not come in on any investigation that might result. a few days later, jackson received a call from an f t a in spencer to discuss her reports, but was told that no further information could be provided. she had nothing further in relation to her report. the right people apparently did no, or at least were notified. did that lead to any oversight of the company?
5:09 am
by the regulator? the answer is no. on the contrary, the watchdog was instead quick to greenlight, pfizer for emergency use in america. in 5 as briefing, document submitted sta advisory committee meeting held on the 10th of december 2020 . the company made no mention of problems of the vents. javier sites the next day to issue the emergency use authorization of the vaccine. a few more details that right disconcert a summary of f, the a inspections of phasers vaccine trial sites said that 9 of 153 had been inspected. but none of those had been operated by vent avia and no expection had been conducted at all in the 8 months between the emergency authorise ation. and the full approval. pfizer has since hired been toby up as a research subcontractor to work on for other clinical trials, the use of the coven vaccine, and children, and young adults,

a cobit 19 trial involving pregnant woman and a trial of cobit 19 booster doses. this is a global pandemic, and in a global pandemic, we have a duty. this is the important bed. we have a duty, we have an up must duty to look after other nations. it is a clear example of we look after ourselves in the 1st instance. and we are not very interested in the welfare, the well being, the recovery of other countries of cause profit is the biggest motive here. and it is an example of protecting their financial prospects in the future. okay. not an expert. and maybe the trials were actually properly conducted. maybe someone was just not a big fan of the u. s. pharmaceutical giant. but what i want to be confident about is that some one competent, whose job is to have these trials under control actually does his or her job to the
5:11 am
fall. or at least mentions reports on possible red flags. we've contacted pfizer, advent of if a comments on the claims as well as posing further questions to the us food and drug administration. willa let you know if they respond. meantime, doctor ranch, it brought a consultant physician for britons and hfc thing. so vaccine development has literally just fallen victim to that of corporate greed by the has for me to spend no means the 1st time that i've been found to be acting in a way in which you can really say that their commercial interests is compromising day. clinical and research objectivity and judgment. what this really shows that it's been developed above the acceptable speed of signs of a, the cost of a applied and more people to the trolley kind of adequate staff to run the trial. in appropriate wayne is a constant commercial pressure, even with a sub contractor to make profit. so to have the fewest off and generate results more quickly and cut corners. in this way, commercial interest is pressuring and,

you know, what would be the best way to treat the pandemic. and the best way to develop the drug. thousands of protesters gathered in the german city of leipzig on saturday against the government's latest cove. it restrictions, scuffles broke out as police moved into dispersed the crowd renaissance. several people were injured. a 20 protesters arrested. this comes amid reco daily infection numbers in germany. it's now the top 5 in the top 5, i should say of countries for daily cases. and the latest wave is taking a toll on hospitals. a number of patients and intensive care has surgery recent days. and one doctor in nuremberg says the health care system is just being pushed to the brink. first, the situation is very tense. all the beds are full, we're still trying to take care of the urgent cases as best we can. on the one hand we treat many cobra patients, but we also have to provide the rest of the medical care that is normally done. hospitals all reach the limits, especially the larger hospitals that kind of for the most severe patients,
5:13 am
both with and without cove, it for medical stuff, we're now in the 4th wave. annette is a huge burden whatever on a time, several german regions and are preparing hot hitting restrictions as our europe correspondent, peter, all of us now reports, cove and figures in germany to not make for good reading as the theatre. 4th wave is very low to whistles. if we do not acts this 4th wave will again bring a great deal of suffering. many people will fall seriously ill and die, and the health services will be under extreme pressure again. around 67 percent of the german population is fully vaccinated, but the numbers coming forward has plateaued in recent months. prompting politicians to fear that a new type of pandemic could be upon us. we are currently experiencing a pandemic of the unvaccinated, which is massive. there would be few karone of ours patients on intensive care units. if more people would let themselves be vaccinated. the big worry now is that
5:14 am
those people who haven't gone for a vaccination have no intention of doing so. and that may well lead to more restrictions on what people who haven't been jobs can do. if the pundum mc situation in hospitals worsens than further restrictions for unvaccinated people are possible. some of germany, 16 states aunt waiting for a federal decision to be made. and of already put in place new measures in bavaria . musk wearing will be mandated in schools. in the state of hassan, there's going to be a new testing system put in place for those, going to visit hospital's old care homes. and in the state of bottom voting book, where you're going to need to show a p c r test. if your room vaccinated and wants to go to a bar, a restaurant, or theater, german business leaders want the government to give them the rights to impose the so called 3 g system. that means that anybody who is and vaccinated recovered or
5:15 am
tested could be bod, from employment. some of germany's biggest companies of already brought in controversial canteen segregation. employees who being double jobs, can sit together and eats as normal. those who have nots or choose not to reveal their vaccine status, must remain in a cordoned off area where masks have to be worn when not eating. chemical giant via told r t. they may even take this further. depending on specific facility needs, a separate 2 g area is also created which offers immunized to employees a space with less distance to each other on a voluntary basis. this will be planned in close corporation with work representatives and site management in the uncontrolled areas of the can seen the decent root of to meters from each other continues to exist and individual sitting is offered. all the big names in the german business world say they're reviewing the situation. goods some company say this just isn't the way forward. in the
5:16 am
contains is up to day now, destination is made between and vaccinated and vaccinated are recovered. employees currently were not consider in separate contin areas. we treat everyone equally with germany posting record daily cove. it case numbers, politicians, business leaders and health care professionals all agree that something has to be done and all bracing for things to potentially get worse. over the coming winter months. peter, all of a r. t. berlin judges in canada. have ruled that a comedian who mocked or disabled child sing, i did not breach the youngsters rights to dignity. a comic mike ward hailed the decision by the supreme court as part of a growing backlash against cancelled culture. as both sides reacted to the ruling i like o j i one. this is less, i'm so happy. i think this is a good sign for comedy. i think this means the pendulum is about to swing
5:17 am
the other way. medians are going to be able to keep on doing jokes. i, we want to tell him about how i fell. when i 1st heard that they yelled as if 13 years old to chance. think about gang because a 40 year old men say so that you should guy or singer, jeremy gabriel, who was now 24, was born with a congenital disorder that causes scull abdur maladies. he found fame in 2006 and even performed for pope benedict but in 2010. comedian mike ward began making jokes about his disabilities. a gabriel was just r, 13 years old at the time of gabriel's family, father, human rights complaint. but canada's highest courts at the sing i was not targeted because of his disability, but because of his fame. and while mr. ward received support from the committee world, others still believe jokes like this should have consequences. well,
5:18 am
here i'll see. we had a lively chat about it with a, with a panel of guests. you know, i, i agree with the court's conclusion. i mean that they acknowledge said that this was a nasty thing that was said. but you know, it doesn't go as far as to, you know, have a legal financial consequences for this person. when mister word comes to your town, you have the option to not buy a ticket. you can ignore his podcast. you have the right to do all those things, but should he be prosecuted in a court of law that takes it a bridge way too far. in my opinion, we have to sink about. he was a child, he was 13 years old. and i truly believe we should safeguard our children more because especially in this case he was not only a child, but he was and he still is disable. so, you know, the must be a stall between hatred and comedy between violence, you know, and free speech. got to charge in and find a guy, tens of thousands of dollars for
5:19 am
a joke, comedy and joking. and freedom of speech is a human right. when did this change? this is nuts to me and, you know, i have to disagree with the, the woman who spoke before. but this, he was not making fun of his disability. he was primarily making fun of people who thought the kid was so weak. that you couldn't comment and make fun of his singing is still alive. he the only thing that from what is it looks a little different. and he, you know, he has to wear a hearing aid. i, we shouldn't be treating people like so differently. i mean, have some respect for the guy, he's not some weakling that you need to defend like this. first of all, he was violence. verbal violence towards a child that was 13 years old and disabled child. i don't care if it wasn't addressing his disability. he was suicidal after that and you can be free to say
5:20 am
whatever you want and be buying renting every way you want in that and you know in your job, i'm gonna ship an air each to my, to my disable, you know, employee like that. i would go to court to because doubt consequences for every one of us, what we do in our life, ok, it's not only speech is an action, no one saying there should be consequences. but the argument is, the consequence should not be you being by tens of thousands of dollars and not be a last centrally not allowed to criticize someone. well, i just want to say this in response to that, a lot of comedians and, and i would like to think i'm one of them. it is possible for us to have 2 thoughts in our head at the same time. thought number one, that's a joke that a lot of us would never make. i personally would never make a joke like that. that's me. but another thought that i am also able to have in my head at the same time is i can see the dangerous slippery slope of having legal consequences for someone who chooses to make such a joke. even if i find it incredibly poor taste. and you know,
5:21 am
free speech is just her virtue that i think is very important. and without it, i certainly wouldn't have a job or it's still to come with the program here, want to all to international as we're working away into the 2nd half of the weekly program, the u. s. military. it says it didn't break any laws. and an olga's drones drive that killed 10 civilians, including 7 kids more on that story based out of kabul. and just a moment ah, what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy even foundation, let it be an arms race. his on offense, very dramatic development only personally and getting to resist. i don't see how that strategy will be successful, very critical time time to sit down and talk ah
5:22 am
with ah, that's good every with us today for the weekly program. and the u. s. military has
5:23 am
concluded that a botched drones chicken up canister in august was not unlawful and showed no sign of negligence. now, despite the strike killing 10 civilians including 7 kids of the u. s. air force inspected general announced the probes findings. the investigation found no violation of law including the law of war, did find execution errors confirmed by confir may or combined with confirmation bias and communication, breadth breakdowns that regrettably lead to civilian casualties. the cobble drone attack was one of the final acts of the u. s. war in afghanistan at the pentagon at 1st claimed it had taken out an imminent threat and didn't appear to involve any civilian casualties. boy,
5:24 am
the u. s. air force inspector general is that his report on the strike will remain classified because it contains details about the military's ass dry tactics. but the associated press report at the pentagon found no mistakes after an independent review. and review also recommended the military improve its procedures to ensure civilians are not present before launching a strike. and we spoke to former you at our ankle intelligence officer, scott ritter. he believes that just was no justification for the drug strike in such a heavily populated. here is nothing but negligence here from the beginning when they identified or miss identified the target to the end, when the decision was made to pull the trigger, i can't see a single legitimate reason to go forward. and yet everybody did go forward. and if they're not being honest about it and saying that mistakes are made, this is going to happen again. this isn't the 1st time we fired a missile that's killed civilians. it isn't the 2nd time,
5:25 am
3rd time board time in the hundreds time. and the reality is the united states, as known for some time now that the procedures it has in place to cerio counterterrorism strikes in a real world, you know, real time a event or are not sufficient to the task that we kill civilians. and yet we went forward anyways, because there was political pressure being placed on the military to be seen as doing something. kenya has reopened a criminal probe into the horrific motor of a young woman, allegedly by a british soldier. the single mother was beaten, stabbed and dumped in a septic tank back in 2012 and her family believed the details of the case all hushed up lead you the, i did johnny. we recently learned that isn't the british army involved because there were a lot of cover out as of today, but we are glad that now think of being brought to light my wishes,
5:26 am
the culprit to face the law because i had to bear burden that wasn't mine i had my own children to take care of them, though i was not employed. it has been a real struggle with the family of agnes when terror, when jacko. a canyon woman allegedly killed by a british soldier, is crying foul as they are yet to receive justice. almost 10 years after her death, when jack, who was a 21 year old sex waka, any money to feed her newborn baby when she was reported missing in march of 2012. 2 months later, her body was found in a hotel septic tank near to where british soldiers had been stationed, though it's been revealed that a british soldier named only a soldier x confessed to killing her. but would i feel so sad as those and positions to help us that took so long recently, when the me des started erin the story top and old would see that it's like agnes has just died of it. has it been affected? her daughter? what we had to let her know what is going on, and i pray that god crossed the british government the wisdom to handle this case.
5:27 am
well, when i think of agnes, i remember how happy she was and she loved to sing it. she taught my youngest daughter how to sing, what are the person who killed agnes should face the lord or because the charge was orphaned, has suffered to lot till glaring in mind. she was just by my soul to prevent even feeding at the time was difficult. according to the u. k, defense mystery, it will continue offering the support to the canyon investigation. the u. k. stands ready to support all requests says we have done since day one. as with other investigations, we always work in partnership with the kenyan police and subject to international and judicial processes. our help will always be forthcoming. will activists in kenya, a calling for the extradition of the alleged killer to be held accountable while the labor party here in the united kingdom say the 9 year old deal with an investigation even being can sit, has denied the family justice. there's been no minister defense lead investigation of the sold is involved, or no inquiring to why the minister the funds failed to respond. when kenyan
5:28 am
detectives asked for help, 9 years on justice must now be done for agnes and her family. revelations of the tragic death of one jacket continue to become more sinister. it's been reported that a group of 9 british soldiers joked about her death on social media several years later. the family now hope this fresh investigation will give them the answers they so desperately need to her. i feel a lot of pain when i remember agnes. we brought her up well, and just as she was settling down a life was taken away, leaving us to fend for her young child. it's my hope that this child will get justice. it's been 10 years, but we hope to finally get justice this case strikes right at the heart of alleged exploitation killings and cover ups in the british army. in fact, the very same defense secretary assisting this probe into one jack, whose death officially closed at stores on investigations and to more than a 1000 allegations of abuse by british soldiers in iraq. so with no prosecutions there, will this mean justice may never be solved for angus. when jerry, when jack,
