several al-jazeera stothard been questioned by police in kuala lumpur about a documentary on malaysia's response to covert 19 police say they're investigating the report for sedition defamation and violation of the country's communications and multimedia at in response al-jazeera has released a statement saying it calls on the malaysian authorities to respect media freedom and desist from treating its journalists as criminals 0 has serious concerns about developments of occurred in malaysia since the broadcast of its want to an east investigative documentary locked up in malaysia's lockdown focused on july 3rd when the documentary investigated why the covert 900 pandemic is forcing migrant workers into hiding the government put some areas of kuala lumpur with high infection rates on the locked out of people tested and some fingerprinted foreigners without valid documents were arrested malaysian officials and state television have criticised the report al-jazeera as attempts to. interviewed government ministers and
officials during production would declined stock of experience of staying online harassment since the broadcast want east as an asia pacific coming to things programme that has won numerous international awards let's bring in again from the institute for democracy and economic affairs in kuala lumpur. so what's your response to what you see happening to these al-jazeera journalists in kuala lumpur i mean is this being seen as a brutal crackdown on press freedoms and free speech by the authorities hi yes i do think that this is part of a larger effort by the authorities to clamp down on freedom of expression. in general. a book with but recently for allegedly having a cover that is offensive and insulting a prominent activist who was closely with refugees to recently with being questioned just like the dentist are right now for a post that she made on facebook you know that exposed some of the ill treatment
that some refugees and migrant workers have faced defend consensus and i mean you know even a problem from your own documentary one of the migrant workers there were interviewed there. is now being searched. by the police and i'm not sure if i'll name but the point is. there is a 5th day in fact that i think of a crackdown intimidation on freedom of expression and including including journalists as well now we're seeing how serious then are these charges leveled that the program that the al-jazeera network because al-jazeera as we know tried to reach out to the malaysian authorities but they refused to comment so that was a clear attempt by the network to produce balanced and fair journalism. and that as i said earlier when you had me on you know if the government disagrees with any of the reporting if there is anything inaccurate or not true then perhaps they could
have issued a statement or you know the relevant men if there could have gone and gave the account a narrative to it right then they could have very well done that without the authorities clamping down and bringing in journalists for questioning so and since all this you know already said outright that attempts to contact the government were not that cesspool so you know we have seen here that you know if the government refuses to talk to speak on on a documentary such as this then then they would have to be prepared to to feed the the critics the whatever criticism that the documentary might have against them and what does this say about the government's reaction to curb 19 and also migrant workers in malaysia because these are really 2 separate issues aren't there in malaysia in many respects has been seen as a success story in science in coded 19 in southeast asia. as i see it it's actually
really a question that this incident has happened because malaysia has really led the way in you know in in combating one thing but as you rightly say the issue of my foot was because of refugees. none citizen this is a longstanding issue that has been going on in malaysia you know for decades and you know if there is a civilizing to all of this i think covais it and the response to it has brought these issues to light and has made i think many malaysians really think about you know not really migrant workers say but you know about the immigration system about the possible you know corruption and weak oversight measures that happens that result in such a huge one documented migrant population in malaysia and i hope that this will
force all of us to really think and reflect on why the situation is so and you know and i would say that it is a separate issue from from from coded but clearly made has been effectively i think bringing these issues tonight i rosario's on to a much deeper showing a force ground 0 thank you my pleasure thank you. the u.s. supreme court has issued mixed verdict on demands for donald trump's financial records and now at least the president's tax returns and other documents will remain out of the public eye you have a chance as. president trump displayed mixed emotions following the 2 judgments on the release of his financial records what the rules were basically showing more again selling everything back down to the lower working the story again so for the sake point. you know the point of. this is a political witch like that we cannot you know if you or your which are hopes just
like the moderate mr gibbs was a hoax there why do these supreme court rulings weren't even close each one had a $7.00 to $2.00 majority that included trump appointees justices call such and cavanaugh off the court threw out the president's lawyers arguments that their client has immunity from investigation in both cases chief justice john roberts writing that no citizen not even the president is categorically above the common duty to produce evidence when called upon in a criminal proceeding so authorities in new york are allowed to secure records from the president's accounting firm through the courts the city's district attorney hailed the decision cyrus vance jr said it's in keeping with the u.s.a.'s founding principles and added the investigation which was delayed for almost a year by this lawsuit will resume guided as always by the ground jury solemn obligation to follow the law and the facts wherever they may lead but new york's grand jury investigation into potential wrongdoing by trump and the trump organization is held in secret so barring
a leak the public will not see the records if and when it receives them investigators are looking into whether an alleged hush money deal with 2 women who claim to have had an affair with trump broke the law congress however could released all charges financial records to the public if house committees win the right to see them and that may or may not happen now but the house speaker welcomed the judge. this is up holding of the principle that congress has no right to subpoena the president the supreme court including the president appointees have declared that he is not about the law. the point the path that the plane court has laid out is one that is clearly achievable by in the lower courts and we will continue to go down that path but the supreme court hasn't acted limitations on congress that it will now have to meet in the lower courts among them to prove that any information that is requested would have a direct impact on legislation always hanging over the issue of donald trump's tax
records are statements like this dating back to before the 2016 election i'm clean and when i release my financial statements my decision sometime prior to election it will only show one thing that i'm much richer than people even thought yet the president has fought their release ever since so there is some comfort to be had for the president donald trump's arguments regarding presidential immunity did not win but these rulings will not result in the release of donald trump's closely held for now until records before november's elections. washington the u.s. supreme court has ruled that a large area of the state of oklahoma will remain a native american reservation it means that state prosecutors don't have the authority to pursue criminal cases against native american defendants the lands include parts of oklahoma 2nd largest city tulsa the decision is one of the most important legal victories for indigenous americans in decades a u.s.
judge has an appeals court to reconsider its dismissal of a criminal case against donald trump's former national security adviser michael flynn had pleaded guilty to lying to the f.b.i. joint investigation into russian interference in the 2016 presidential election but a u.s. appeals court ordered the case against him to be dismissed last month president from patra peace liquid inside flynn's prosecution. the united arab emirates is said to be holding up a deal with gulf states that could end a 3 year long blockade against according to reports by the fox news website but go ahead and has more now from washington d.c. we need to sort of take a step back and look at where this is being reported in the fox news website not on fox news on air we haven't seen it on air yet and again we know that the channel that the president likes to watch we have seen no evidence that the president likes to read the website and again it has been picked up by anyone else and we have not been able to independently confirm this but what this article is saying and it
doesn't give any sort of indication where the sources are coming from which is slightly unusual but it doesn't name anyone but it says that for the last 2 months somehow if there were secret negotiations between saudi arabia officials from saudi arabia qatar the u.a.e. and the u.s. acting as a mediator that it 5 would be surprising if true because these are that's a lot of different people at the table and there's been no even whisper that there were negotiations of any kind taking place much less among high ranking officials from these 4 countries the article says that a potential deal was in their words quote at hand and that the u.a.e. walked away and tried to pressure saudi arabia to do the same thing again they're saying that the perspective this is not anything we've even heard is on the radar lately from the secretary of defense secretary of state the white much less the white house dealing with a coronavirus pandemic a downturn in the economy falling poll numbers and now the supreme court decision
so there's been no indication no signals that this is high up on 0 the priority list giorgio caviar as a c.e.o. of gulf state analytics he says the u.a.e. is less likely to change its position than the other countries involved. among the countries blockading qatar it is the u.a.e. that is most rigid in its position against doa whereas the saudis have viewed the alleged qatari threat as more of a strategic issue for i would dhabi this is really very much about ideology and ultimately this agenda of blockading qatar came from abu dhabi and i think out of all of the gulf countries putting pressure on cuts are the u.a.e. will be the last one to decide to ease that pressure so it definitely makes sense that davi would use its leverage over riyadh to block any u.s. backed plan aimed at bringing the g.c.c.
countries back together the trump administration is seen this arabian feud is a big threat to u.s. interests in the sense that washington would like to have all of the g.c.c. member states united against the islamic republic of iran and this issue has definitely been an irritant for the administration but you know i the defacto ruler of the u.a.e. crown prince mohammed bin zayed whatever people may think about his policies we can all agree that he's no pushover and he's a very strategic thinker when it comes to dealing with regional international issues let's not have to come here not just there including. we cannot proceed we cannot dispute this line of being here a new military age the u.n. expert on extrajudicial killings delivers a warning about trends strikes down with mt fuji off limits will meet the japanese

deep heat is and certainly die in texas but equally a good part of the midwest and all places to the east is tempus should not be really in the thirty's the frontal taken down toronto goes to 29 you know spit will bring flooding there have been some flash flooding in toronto already so nice little change taking place but quite an interesting one the showers been equally big i see no tornadoes no reports of no hail know what i expect to see very much in this part of the world throughout the caribbean we've got the focus of some pretty big showers in nicaragua they're moving further westwards and on the pacific coast potential development happening. a secret mass grave in arlington discovered at an institution run by catholic nun. a mission to its core. people in power investigates a scandal that destroyed families cost thousands of lives and still raises profound

drone strike that killed top iranian general cause i'm still the money in january was illegal she insists now is the time to regulate drones fearing some governments are using them without accountability. drones are becoming stealthy here speedier smaller more lethal and can be operated by teams located south hundreds of kilometers away and in my opinion and the opinion of all the experts i have consulted over the last 6 months these is bringing the world to a critical point in regulating the use of armed drones and the use of force who aren't drones from tehran al jazeera saying bus driver explains what the report means for leaders there. the iranian government here at the time of qassam so the money is killing there was an outpouring of grief there was an outpouring of anger by government officials as well as the public this was after all one of the most
popular public figures in the country perhaps in the history of the islamic republic of iran so certainly this ruling what we still haven't really heard from iranian leaders this time around it seems that they're letting the un special rapporteur tours findings do the talking for them they're really letting this breathe at the moment and certainly it will be supporting the sort of legal arguments that the iranian government is making for pursuing a legal case in the international courts against the united states for justice for cause and so money the foreign ministry has said that it is looking into at least $40.00 people americans and not americans that were involved in this coordinated effort they say to assassinate this beloved general now the united states has said that the findings of this report are dishonest and they've characterize it as giving a pass to terrorists and this really gives us a sense of how the u.s. sees iran iran is still considered by washington especially this government as a state sponsor of terror but the un's findings the u.s.
