respects in ivory coast but many fear the sudden death of the prime minister could cause political instability. several hours the rest off have been questioned by police in kuala lumpur about a documentary on malaysia's response to cope with 19 the program looked at the experiences of migrant workers during the lockdown and police say they're investigating the report for sedition defamation and violation of the country's communications and multimedia at in response to 0 as released a statement saying it calls on the malaysian authorities to respect media freedom and desist from treating its journalists as criminals al-jazeera serious concerns about developments that have occurred in malaysia since the broadcast of its one to one east investigative documentary locked up in malaysia's lockdown broadcast on july 3rd well the documentary investigated why the coded 900 pound demick is forcing migrant workers into hiding the government put some areas of kuala lumpur
7:02 am
with high end section rates under lock down with people tested. and some fingerprinted foreigners without valid documents were arrested malaysian officials and state television have criticized the report al-jazeera as attempts to interview government ministers and officials during production were declined stoffel experience sustained online harassment since the broadcast one of one east is an asia pacific talent to pass program that has won numerous international awards listening to muhammad in kuala lumpur he's the chief executive and founder of the guardian center for health and social policy as well on a stand you have seen the al-jazeera documentary what do you make of its content and why do you think it's offended the malaysian authorities so much because al-jazeera did ask them to respond but they declined well when i saw the documentary i thought it was a fair and balanced report and it did highlight some of the issues that we ourselves here on the ground in malaysia especially amongst public health
7:03 am
specialists were actually pointing out the documentary didn't criticize at all the government or specifically the ministry of health treatment of migrants we've caught 19 which i believe to have been compassionate and equal what we did see was highlighting an issue that we raise which was that the government should have conducted these immigration enforcement raids and having a rested people and placed into detention dring a public health emergency so that is what we saw at least from our perspective what the documentary highlighted and why the government is responding this way we believe it's just a matter of. distraction from the actual issue in hand and that's an important point to make as well because you know i want to ask you how sensitive are the malaysian authorities about the wider issue of undocumented migrant workers in the country because some critics say as you pointed out the government perhaps was using covert 19 as
7:04 am
a way to crack down on these workers. well i don't think it started off that way the government from the very beginning had indicated commendably that it would not use this opportunity where you have a movement control order being placed to actually enforce immigration action and it stated that back in april during the m.p.o. what happened was the. month or so down there was a bout to an end suddenly the state of lockdowns were being used as opportunities for them to you know arrest people who are undocumented and that was fairly distressing time for many of us working public health because this actually defeats the purpose of which these restrictions were supported and it most importantly does not produce the kind of health outcomes that you want it to produce so we have a situation now where this vulnerable community is actually going underground and me perhaps even not come forward to get treated for code in 1000 if they were
7:05 am
infected as well let's just stay with some of the some of the work that you're doing because you deal with health and social policy issues as you say you work with the migrant community what sort of conditions do these undocumented migrants face in malaysia and in many of them a stay at the authorities there going into hiding what's the scale of the problem. well let's just say from very onset this is a very vulnerable. population which is very often left out of interventions that state implemented such as public health and one reason is is because there are documented irregular they've come into the country illegally and therefore they don't have the kind of protections and access to the kind of services that a documented or. a regular migrant worker would have so when it comes to this we're talking about at least a 1000000. undocumented in addition to the additional $2000000.00 of
7:06 am
a regular migrant workers that are in country so we're talking about a population that's quite sizable and therefore even if you are documented you could be fearful for your own safety because of what's happening the kind of response that the both the malaysian public has with regards to placing the blame on my coworkers for the continued spread of 1000 or at least at the very beginning accelerating the spread of course in 1000 stephanie unfounded and definitely is actually more of a symptom of this in a 4 big. sensitivities and also misplaced national support all right so i will leave it there as well mohammed ali thank you very much deficient in your thoughts and al-jazeera thank you thank you very. now the u.s. supreme court has issued mixed verdict some demands for donald trump's financial records for now at least the president's tax returns and other documents will remain out of the public eye you have a chance if as. president from displayed mixed emotions following the 2 judgments
7:07 am
on the release of his financial records what the rules were basically showing more again selling everything back down to the lower courts and so you get so for a certain point. you know the point that. this is a political witch fight that we cannot you know kenya or disappear which are. just like the model of mr gibbs was a hoax that one of these supreme court rulings weren't even close each one had a $7.00 to $2.00 majority that included trump appointees justices corso churn kavanaugh 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 so there's a lot 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 $2.00 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. justice is up holding of the principle that congress has the right to subpoena the president the supreme court including the president appointees have declared that he is not above the law. the point the path that the plane court has laid
7:09 am
out is one that is clearly achievable by us 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 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. may not have arab

emirates is said to be holding up a deal with gulf states that could end the 3 year long blockade against qatar that's according to reports by the fox news website particle hain has more now from washington d.c. . we need to sort of take a step back and look at where the spirit being reported the fox news website not on fox news on air we haven't seen it on air yet and again we know that this is a 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 now that 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
7:11 am
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 just for purposes 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. time for a short break al-jazeera when we come back australia will dramatically reduce the number of people allowed into the country as cases spike in a key state. talks between rival nations of the balkans resume later on friday but can the 2 sides of the coming years of mistrust more that status.
