10:01 pm
faithfully freezing in our in house because we're trying to get the cost down to sing. what else with welcome to the weekly or not international. my name is peter scott. and these are the stories the ship, the news this week novak jock of it has been deported from australia. the tennis world number one was forced to leave after a court upheld decision to revoke his visa over vaccine issues. that means you'll now miss the australian, open the tennis association of the stars home country of serbia, pull no punches in his reactions. at that decision, the tennis association of serbia expresses its great disappointment with this decision of the australian court. this time politics has won over sport, the best tennis player in the world, novak jock of ich validly fulfilled all the prescribed requirements and rules of
10:02 pm
the organizes of the australian open in the host country for participation in the tournament, which was confirmed by the decision of the court of the same country, serbian sporting and indeed top political officials certainly making their feelings felt about the deportation done. yeah, absolutely. and the impression that this is mainly a political decision. and because increasingly coming from many quarters around the world, we didn't from of course, not just the space to court cases in australia. that 1st court case was based on the kind of fees off his visa, off his medical exemption id submitted, his documents, his evidence on his medical looks at reception in a timely unappropriate minor case was won by his legal team, a judge ruled in favor. this cool case was based on something very different by the powers that immigration minutes that i'd like for you to deport him from the country. and that was based on the perception that he could be, quote, an icon for the anti back movement, enough pose a risk,
10:03 pm
some sort of health risk for australia. and even perhaps, insight civil unrest, quite strong was of course there used by straight an officials and we heard of course from leo street prime minister scott morrison, who said a multiple occasions. this is a defense of the countries borders. that the reason was trailer had relatively few deaths, relatively few cases was because the country had defended their borders so strongly . that was also echoed by immigration minister, alex ford, who said he welcome this decision of defending australia's borderline of keeping people safe. the association of tennis professionals has not so outright criticize this decision. they've not outright been critical all the decision, but expressed that regret what's happened. the thing is not good for the image of tenants as a sport is not good without the least of participated and things would have been better had they turned out differently. so being leaders, they, serbian top officials have certainly not meant that word and stating this decision
10:04 pm
was political. this was put in place to make an example of no joke, which it was very easy for us raylynn authorities to say from the very beginning that okay, only vaccinated on inoculated people could enter australian territory. but it, in the face, hope everything completely different story including this medical exemptions i think was fairly and what's right for it is cumulative themselves was this kind of procedures pursuing against your courage missing the years. i think the decision is scandalous. i'm disappointed and i think it showed how the rule of law functions in some other countries, that is how the rule of law does not function. it is incredible to me how we have to totally oppose court decisions within just a few days. so there have been 11 days of physical and psychological harassment. i
10:05 pm
think many will take away 3 aspects from the court decision, its politics perception and precedent. because ultimately this decision has been taken by the immigration minutes to based on his perception, but noble joker, which is perceived by others as an anti backs icon, whatever that may mean. and this could have consequences beyond to reach beyond cobra, restrictions beyond tennis. that's why the president of the people could be back and forth and based on perceptions allow the bottom line though, for the player himself down is that in years that come, the record books are going to simply show the joke of which did not win his for in a row he did not win his 21st grand slam and for whatever reason valid or otherwise it's you've been going through. a stealing officials have cost him the chance to make history. yeah, absolutely. and the certainly the reaction has been coming in throughout the day and will continue to do so joker, which himself has of course, left australia, the people tracking he flies on flight radar as it left australia to, to go home joker. but to say he's actually disappointed, he will,
10:06 pm
they respect the decision, he will corporate with authorities. but really we have seen out poor port for the sub tennis play. we saw the stair, the images of people in the streets supporting him and protesting against that decision to keep them attention for days while his case was resolved. and indeed, a host of tennis players around the wells have also expressed their indignation the worst or best at least disappointment that things have worked out the way they have the very sad day in history of tennis. it said when politics be common, sense the laws, one for all, but interpretations are different for all shameful to target one because of his beliefs which are different from others. do you know when an icon of free choice isn't welcome in a western country? things have gone back crazy. there was a political agenda at play here with the elections coming up, which couldn't be more obvious. this is not his fault. he did not force his way
10:07 pm
into the country and did not make his own rules. he was ready to stay home association of serbia, just another organization that really questioned the message. australia is sending in the way it treats athletes ahead of course, hosting 1000000 pick games in bruce. but in 20 about he to saying when serbia host sporting events they will treat to athletes and interact with abilene was albany questions and a very different way. and also saying that the impartiality, the sacred, limbic rule of impartiality had not been a product as your cabbage. in this case, all the former tenant stars have gone even further. one form a professional tennis player during paolo's with bowman reviewers, flavio back in the late ninety's and what has happened today in a fiery message, bombs were thrown by world powers at civilian facilities in our city. and our youngest fellow, citizens and friends were killed. now the world's powerful are putting pressure on you to give up because in other ways, in a fair and sporty way, no one can defeat you. whatever you view and what's happened, the joke of it,
10:08 pm
this is most of the issue as we can see from money is going to continue to draw motions under bait, as it goes on. because as we said this has why the ramifications and just joke of it's just coded just tennis to do with him for shots he legality. the way athletes are treated as people who bear responsibility for public opinion. so lena, motive issue and one that will continue to cover obviously in the coming days, while alice customer all through the boat making sense of the board, believes the australian government has made jock of age a martyr by deporting him. this is a manifestly political decision as the world knows not morrison has the federal elections looming in about 4 months time. and he's been rewarded this morning with a response from the australian public, which seems to endorse the decision of the australian government to deport joker ridge where the thing that the australian government has missed. that it said
10:09 pm
before alex hall, the immigration minister said, i don't want to make a martyr out of our hero as a joke of it by allowing him to play. but by deporting him by excluding him from the the tournament he's done exactly that because anti vax is around the world. now we'll be looking at jacob edge and saying this guy's been persecuted for no other reason than the fact that he is exercising his individual liberty, his choice not to be vaccinated. and of course, he will become a martyr. the kremlin is insisting on a concrete response from the u. s. to his proposed security guarantees, washington, that is, i'll give it in writing next week. if l, as in depth talks between moscow and nato russia, however, that those negation universe ations highlighted, continuing differences with ukraine being the main stumbling block. it's artie charlotte davinsky. how do you solve a problem? like russia?
10:10 pm
easiest under false weight is for a shot to deescalate it is russia that has to make a start trice, the escalation and diplomacy, or confrontation and consequences. what was the view from the u. s. a. nato, after they held a series of meetings with their russian counterparts. on the one hand, they repeatedly said that they were there to find solutions on the other. that solution was some have suggested one sided. russia has to make giant strides towards reducing into military presence anyway, mean ukraine. if there is to be a di escalation of tensions for the russian delegation than double speak was too much. we are fed up with loose dog, half promises, misinterpretation of what happened, that different forms of negotiations have behind closed doors. we do not trust the
10:11 pm
other sites. so to see we need iron clad. waterproof bulletproof, the legally binding guarantees not assurances, not safeguards guarantees. russia was also accused of not being serious about finding solutions to ease the frictions as it continued to deny its planning to invade ukraine. moscow say these are put for clear proposals before the meetings took place, outlining what assurances it wanted from the west for its own security. that crucially included nato slamming the door on membership to post soviet countries like ukraine. moscow also hate out that meters idea of security did not extend to non members, should indian luck. nato expansion doesn't solve any problems of security. it division lines but doesn't remove that. so these are the that for instance,
10:12 pm
nathan large cement is aggressive. absolutely not true. nathan launch month has to be in a cornerstone for the spread of democracy and freedom across europe, new to regurgitated the line that it is not a threat to russia. moscow didn't agree to us and nato continue to conquer militarily. the territories of the countries included in the alliance in place offensive weapon systems. there. this directly poses a threat to the interests of the russian federation. a final stab was made finding common ground in vienna and the organization for security and cooperation in europe, a supposedly neutral ground, where unfortunately the language from country representatives was anything but it seems very skillful. or if you always see area is now greater than ever before. in the last 30 years,
10:13 pm
the europeans also went down the smear campaign route, following a massive cyber attack and government sites in ukraine. the eas, top diplomat tinting one can figure out who is behind this strike. the hackers have not yet been identified. and while the west continues to state it is spread democracy in put security to countries, rushes foreign minister disagrees. the west went too far. let's be frank in violation of all international obligations and common sense they chose to escalate this situation. well, you see the west condemns violent actions against civilians. they condemn human rights violations. but when bloody codes are carried out by those who swear their allegiance to the west, the west embraces them. this is what happened with the ukrainian qu. many people died there, including the hands of provocateurs and his crew was approved by the united states and the europeans just accepted that as fact. and no one is going to investigate
10:14 pm
the my down atrocities a mammoth week of talks has ended with well, a lot of hot air, no concrete proposals to move things forward. the only thing that they saw eye to eye on really was just how far apart they are, and that if talks fail, the consequences could be catastrophic jollity, blue sky r t amsterdam. meanwhile, after political commentators argued that facebook has been exercising political censorship and u. s. domestic politics, it appears the big take giants as also entered into the russian nato conversation. it's blocked or russian. facebook accounts used to cover the talked for posting what it claims is, prohibit the content. a russian politicians said the page was just used to share public statements by russian officials. on friday, sweden begun deploying armored vehicles and soldiers in response to increased quote, russian activity in the region that's according to its military. some 10 armed
10:15 pm
combat vehicles and dozens of armed personnel could be seen patrolling the small ports on a vis b. that's on the strategically located island of got land. the move came after 3 russian landing ship sailed into the baltic sea, amid increase tension between moscow and nato. meanwhile, russia was accused of preparing a false flag operation in order to invade ukraine. and here's what officials from both sides have to say about the situation. we saw this playbook in 2014, they are preparing this playbook again and the and we will have the administration will have further details on what we see as this potential laying of a pretext to share with the press over the course of the next 24 hours we're living in a world of freak acquisition. so fake news until it is prove somehow we will continue to presume that it is fake news and it is false accusations. well, we spoke with journalist daniela's about this false flight accusation,
10:16 pm
and he says that news rushes sending sub it says to ukraine is just propaganda. latest accusation by us and to the by the u. s. government that russia is smuggling 7 tours into eastern ukraine. i mean, this is a sample of the propaganda campaign. the hot and the hostile aggressive propaganda campaign mounted by the u. s. and a campaign that makes russia very nervous. so up there was, as america trying to calm things down or trying to raise the, the war fears. i think they had been productive in some way. and i think that the discussions amount to a tacit admission by nato of the us got russia as security concerns should be taken into accounts in some way. but so far it looks like the u. s. the west has merely taken them into account and just in order to dismiss them out of hand, but at least there. ready are talks, at least there is some concession that russia,
10:17 pm
something to be worried about. look at, if russian troops had advanced the borders of germany. i mean western europe very concerned and they would, they would demand some kind of. busy concession by the russian, but the now that nato is advanced to the borders of russia. somehow, nato can't understand what the fuss is all about. this is ridiculous in the u. s. a man who took 4 people hostage to synagogue in texas on saturday as been identified by the f b i as a 44 year old british citizen molig feasel, our chrome was killed after 10 hours stunned off with authorities. all of the hostages were freed. and left on the harmed. it's been declared a terrorist incidents by britain and america. and as part of the counter terror efforts, police in england have arrested 2 teenagers in manchester over that possible connection to the incident. the remaining custody for questioning the u. k. author to say they will continue to assist us lead investigation.
10:18 pm
a british energy provider has found himself feeling the heat this week over advice, the customers on how to stay warm. it's all people to cuddle their pets and do star jobs. it was part of a response to energy bills that to predict it's a double this year. are you weighing up, eating or heating? is still the predictor to sort of 2000 pounds a year will threaten no more as one of britain's biggest energy suppliers has come up with no one idea. the 10 ways to save on heating cost, not only laira, but get the hot break going with some storage on. and if that doesn't work, how about a cozy little cutter with a cat? okay, i don't have a cat, but i do have this guy. another central suggestion is to leave the oven door open after cooking, the capital of your kids love and eat a hearty bowl of porridge. and of course, make sure you have a decent pair of socks or slippers. apparently,
10:19 pm
all these are simple cost effective ways to keep warm this winter, but the company can't be serious, can it? i think they've completely lost the floor on that. well, i have to say, don't close with. we're not stupid. i are we on it today trying not to i hating on. we literally freeze in our in house because we're trying to get the cost down. you just think my, what else was i today? if that's real advice than the i'd be slightly and salary by are either awfully by now. why with the event i need to stop suddenly my energy done up for an extra jumper on seminar. so yeah, i want to be in solid bio for any other company, but that doesn't say i wouldn't listen. so i would say got fixed on contract. that would suit me. the advice sent to customers comes as many households are extremely worried about rising energy costs. and despite the company apologizing for the l. judge, suggestions, politicians have criticize the cold,
10:20 pm
haunted approach. it is lawful and insulting. but then with this government's lack of an energy strategy, you almost expected those comments will be right by people who have to choose between eating and heating it's. that's the state of the country. we're now and i find it quite depressing. being told to put on a instead of turning on your heating, if you can't afford it, at the time of such difficulty for so many families is plainly offensive. 2022 has already been given the total year of the squeeze of the one since a 2008 financial crash this year. wages will barely quote one of the same time bill jumped by 50 percent around 2000 pounds when britain's new energy price cap is 2nd april. this means in real time, people actually get a pay cut. and the situation is for the cost of living catastrophe. i think the hosting's an abomination, we had the way to use that you could possibly have in business like whole support
10:21 pm
from the government. so we've been forced to close our doors. we're only, we're trying to close our way back, so we're hope, hotel and everything else. we use quite a lot of electricity and it has to fi and i am terrified of the impact of businesses in the country. not just me. when i mean small business is struggling, i just have to stop. we pay the bounce back later, the government and supposedly gave us, but we've got to pay them back to order something. and i'm not going to do that. it's time to money and we were in debt anyway from the lock that i now they energy cost of solar and both electricity and gas t. sorry. i don't know how we supposed to pay them because we have no income. and she is not alone. in fact, one in 3 people are worried that bills will become totally on affordable this year . and i'm thinking the government to,
10:22 pm
for the bill. labor also piling on the pressure for the government to ditch tax hikes and scrap v a t on feel all together consent to ministers council, the 0 carbon homes program. they bond on show when development, they launch the eco installation program. they tore it up within one year, they were, you see, you case gosh, storage capacity. and it one particularly silly moment the current forensic to claim solar panels were risk to domestic food production. now all of these decisions that have made this country more dependent on volatile wholesale energy prices than we otherwise would have been right now. we know this means as extremely situate, extremely difficult situation to really household. we're also risks making archways the bridge industry and competitive a talk, a combination of spiking prices, tax hikes looming entity, big bills, and the government's apparent reluctance to address these issues. may actually see ridiculous ideas like cuddling pats, how people overcome this,
10:23 pm
and the upcoming winters become a reality. shad edwards dusty arti london. families of those who died during the you case 1st cove. it logged down of slammed an apology by boys johnson as an insult. thus after the prime minister admitted, he attended a boozy downing street bash during the national lot downs, the opposition and even some senior stories have been piling the pressure on the p . m calling. i'm to resign in service here and he said he was, i don't think he can continue as liter concert, parking play minister, asking people to follow the rules again until his government and it, when i went into that garden, just after 6 on the 20th of may 2020, i believed implicitly that this was a work event. now made 2020 was a tough month for britain. much of the country was paralyzed by the 1st national law. down with indoor meetings between household strictly prohibited. we spoke to
10:24 pm
a man who struggled to arrange his father's funeral amid the restrictions a common difficulty during those times. this is about rules and about who the host applies to, has become abundantly clear that the prime minister thinks that they don't apply to him at the same time. but i was at my father's funeral. he was taking part in a, bring your own views, part number 10 downing street. at my dad's funeral, we were allowed to invite up to 5 people at the geno. say that meant it was just myself and my siblings could attend. there is no physical contract. so we wouldn't want to hug each other. even the vicar holding the fireman a wasn't allowed to shake hands or anything like that. and as soon as the ceremony was over, we all had to go back, came again. they were author issuing fines for people meeting outside people will be fined money for meeting up people being harassed by the police. if they hung around and parks that too long and the ultimate question,
10:25 pm
half of the prime minister is, why does he believe that the rules that he helps create that he made didn't apply to him? johnson stated, excuse spots, a wave of means online. even major companies like brian being post the mocking images and he thought the 1st party gates scandal involving johnson at the end of last year, pitches emerged on line, allegedly showing him taking part in several social events at downing street during the 2020 law down. many in parliament thing there is now only one course of action for him is so ridiculous that is actually offensive to the press. you see now go to to, to decent thing and resign. how stupid does the prime minister think the british people are right now? he's making fools of every single mp exceeded him earlier. well, the prime minister finally do the decent thing. i'm resign oral historian.
10:26 pm
peace be forced to show him the door. so for once kind of primers for do the honorable thing and resign. 79 percent of people and got one thing to play multiple church that don't. and eventually you can do, you know, as go resign play manager. he story because he's being cool. there any most resign in my judgement and all the evidence that's concerned in the face for the last few months. now, i think it's abundantly clear that bars johnson doesn't have an ounce of self decency. and m, leading by example isn't really key element of thought leadership that is clear and not only this bar strong and not have moral leadership at the moment, but there's no pathway for him to get back. and that's why, for as long as he remains prime minister, i think we're going to stay in a state of limbo in this country and ultimately is putting more people at risk when
10:27 pm
you say this, where it's outlined that the government has done everything they could to save lives, the so little weights, these words that they can just hang. and the ad messaging throughout has been terrible. the following of their own scientific voices has been at best patchy, and at worst they've gone against scientific advice. and the result has been nearly well over a $175000.00 dust now, which is deeply upsetting. well, those, the stories this shape the we care on oxy international. my name is peter scotts and i'll be back with more of the top of the hour. thanks for watching. ah ah
10:28 pm
ah . so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have. it's crazy confrontation, let it be an arms race is 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 with
10:29 pm
blue commonwealth toys of birth, jo almost a decade in confinement. julianna's sanchez is a shadow of the men who used to be fighting against extradition. requests to be united states has taking a toll on his physical and mental health. well also compromising regallix ability to continue its operations with only this ruling by british port to hampton. over to washington, what's in store, one of the world's most recognized whistleblowers. to discuss that and now joined by reg barnes and astray lawyer and an adviser to doing this on just trailing campaign. mr. barnes, it's great to talk to you. thank you very much for your time. my pleasure. now let me start from afar. a few weeks ago, the european parliament ordered it suffer a price and the human rights prior to the russian, the position after this,
10:30 pm
the scene, the bombing, we're serving time in prison, are parole, violation charges in what many in the was believe to be politically motivated than that and his daughter, dottie, and while accepting the prize on his behalf raised the following question. let me read it for you. why is it so hard to free from community those who are fighting for human rights? why and they still are own in jail, not only all over the world, but in european, geographically european countries in the 21st century. do you think this question is relevant to mr. sanders? case against any doubt that it's relevant to the assigned case. this has been a prosecution from day one. so somebody was reminding me recently that the former started prime minister john out or certainly not.
