4:02 pm
responded with a statement calling on the malaysian authorities to respect media freedom and desist from treating its journalists as criminals al-jazeera says it has serious concerns about developments that have occurred in malaysia since the broadcast of its 101 east investigative documentary called locked up in malaysia's lockdown on july 3rd a documentary investigated why the covert 19 pandemic is forcing migrant workers into hiding the government put some areas of kuala lumpur with high infection rates under lock down with people tested in some fingerprinted foreigners without valid documents were arrested malaysian officials and state television of criticize the report is being inaccurate misleading and unfair are just as attempts to interview government ministers and officials during production were declined staff have experienced sustained online harassment since the broadcast what i want to is an asia pacific current affairs program that has won numerous international awards
4:03 pm
malaysia's top policeman says journalists were being questioned as witnesses so you . know we do not want to judge them but the attorney general's department after reviewing the documentary has determined that there were elements under the sedition act penal code and communications and multimedia act that leak it did. so we were asked to investigate and we carried out our investigation by calling them and 6 people came today in the 7th will be coming in the sea evening or tomorrow or the last person was the person who uploaded the video coming in as witnesses not suspects. of their english marriage and director giles trendall has defended the team's work he says they not only faced legal scrutiny but were threatened online as well. we were very concerned the fact is that we felt they did a very fair and balanced program and then for them to be called in by the criminal investigation division of the police and to be summoned there to answer questions
4:04 pm
and for. words like sedition and defamation to be to be used as possible laws to be invoked we are we are very concerned we're concerned on that front and we were also very concerned for the safety of our staff because as well as the summons to the police there was a stream online reaction which consisted of threats intimidation abuse and even death threats from people on social media. which was very concerning as well so we were encouraged by the police the remarks of the police chief which you just showed which in which he assured. assured the press conference that our journalists would be safe as well as the trolling in the boxing of some of our staff and when i say boxing what i mean is is using online means to try and find personal details and then publish them publicly i believe this is also
4:05 pm
happening to some of the characters who in the film some who spoke anonymously and it's a great concern and one human rights group has called it a witch hunt you know that these individuals their photographs pictures of them have been shown in the streets and posted online and it does seem that there is a. sort of atmosphere online to try and get information on these people and expose them and to find out where they are which of course is not just online but has very real offline risks to it because you never know where all this online abuse and intimidation and death threats that. been death threats to our staff you know never know where this might and so we are very concerned for both the staff and for the characters that appeared in the in the documentary.
4:06 pm
breaking news now and turkey's told the court has an old decree you from the $930.00 s. which turned the highest of fear from a mosque into a museum it could pave the way to turn one of the most famous sites in turkey back into a mosque and the highest of fear it is important in both orthodox christianity and islam the museum was once the biggest christian cathedral in the world finale a 1000 years that was before it was turned into a mosque this is a hugely controversial decision there will be fallout from this decision we will be going to our correspondent to is in istanbul just as soon as we can make contact with her but just reiterating that breaking news that's a live shot from outside of the higher sophia nor does the i guess sophia in turkish that the top court has a no that decree which a presidential decree from 19 from the 130 s. which turned the high sophia from a mosque into
4:07 pm
a museum paving the way to turn it back into a mosque ok. we're turning now to our top story the questioning of journalists from $1.00 to $1.00 east in malaysia over a documentary which. let's bring in phil robertson who is the deputy director for human rights watch he joins us now from. thailand thank you for your time mr robertson so what do you make of the malaysian government's response to this documentary in questioning journalists. well 1st of all i think it's an excellent documentary i've watched it several times and my colleagues have also watched it so we're not quite clear why they're going after it in this way i think unfortunately that this is. a decision by the government to make an issue of migrant workers. unfortunately believe that there's
4:08 pm
a political machinations going on here by the government you know the be blaming others during a period of crisis when you have an economic downturn connected 19 and. they decide to round up migrant workers and now they're blaming anybody who raises these issues al-jazeera is being hit now but the south china morning post was hit earlier in may. again on the micro worker story where reporter was called in and question on the same sort of charges that they're talking to your reporters about. obviously a sensitive issue then how indicative. the questioning of how addictive is that of the state of press freedom generally. well press freedom is sliding backwards very quickly in malaysia we're seeing a return to the tactics that were used by previous governments not be brought back and others could create
4:09 pm
a culture of fear to create concerns by critics that if they say something if they report on something that the government doesn't like that they could face being called in by the police at a minimum and face possible charges well tell us about all that's in this investigation the communications. act and how it's used. section 2233 communications and multimedia act been used by the malaysian government repeatedly to criminalize anything online that the government doesn't like it's very. usually over broad. definitions about what is prohibited but you know it says anything that is. menacing or offensive in character can be criminalized what is offensive to some people consider something the sense of that others as being a normal course of everyday life and. the people who are found guilty of this are
4:10 pm
liable to a very heavy fine. $12000.00 u.s. dollars. possibly in imprisonment up to a year or both so it is a serious charge and it's been used against activists and joe people other groups repeatedly during the previous government and now this government is once again pulling this rights abusing out of their tool chest and using it against media does this raise any sort of broader questions for. all of the trajectory of the current government telling still go to a proven majority in. yes i mean i think than the malaysian government is playing the scene a phobia card for political gain they're scapegoating migrants to divert attention from that comic pain and dislocation caused by the covert 19 pandemic you know it's something that we've seen and other leaders do people like donald trump i mean i
4:11 pm
hate to be comparing a prime minister of malaysia the donald trump but the reality is that this is the kind of attack as we've seen in the past to distract attention to create another more vulnerable group that people can attack and i think al jazeera has been caught up in this the reality is that there was a public health approach that was taken to start with. the defense minister said very clearly we're not going to be checking people's documents we're going to be betting people and possibly a worse quarantine people those have turned out to be lying they did arrest people they ministry of public health is now saying that nobody wants to cooperate amongst the martin workers because they're afraid of being arrested and those who are arrested were sent to immigration detention centers which have now become a covert hot spot so malaysia is really shot itself in the foot by going after migrant workers instead of just focusing on the public health approach everybody
4:12 pm
getting tested who need the test and realizing that covert 19 doesn't care whether a citizen or a migrant worker. thank you miss you time. director for human rights watch thank you. philippine politicians have rejected the license renewal of the country's largest broadcaster there were protests as the legislative committee overwhelmingly voted against a b. and c.b.s. corporation's license renewal the decision which can be appealed affirmed an earlier government order to close the network the company has repeatedly been threatened by the president for its critical coverage rights groups say the decision is a major blow to media freedom in the philippines. let's go back now to a breaking news story turkey's top court has an old a decree from the 930 s. which turns the highest afia from a mosque into a museum. is live for us in istanbul there just for viewers who may not be
4:13 pm
familiar with the highest if you just explain to us why this is such a controversial decision. welcome back to the opening i also feel or i guess sophia in greek terms has always been a debate in turkey every politician especially when it's up to hopeless them they always raise this up and there's a huge public support to reopen and i also feel for prayers among the turkish public and also even some opposition has the same support for them and in this fight 2 years ago when it was raised again presence. at the nearby blue mosque it was not full of worshippers no need to reopen for prayers this year just in the last couple of months he changed his attitudes and the highest administrate to court of the state council decided that the decision and $934.00 by
4:14 pm
the cabinet which decided that the status of sophia is turned from mosque to museum is illegal now the sophia is going to become is going to be maimed as mosque again but for sure this means that it's going to be open for the worshippers for prayer this is the actually the controversial part of the story because many a man in many criticize this on the other way especially among the christian world but some of the churches in turkey they also say that i also feel i should be open to prayers for both muslims and christians because i also feel has always been the symbol of solidarity and united between christians and muslims especially in a city like. which has which has christians and jews as well so now we are this is going to be a legal process especially by the by the cabinet because that was
4:15 pm
a cabinet decision the status of back in 1904 but given that turkey has a presidential governmental system presidential enough. that this. now we are in front of me and i have to tell you that as soon as the emerging breaking news dropped it people who were waiting around here especially young men it went in front of my us sophia saying. which means god great. to celebrate the decision because they have been waiting for this for such a long time but for sure everybody expects international reaction mainly from russia who is known to be dominant in orthodox christianity and this. is the symbol of also the church in the christian world. i think that that's our correspondent there. for us in istanbul. but more here
4:16 pm

4:18 pm
only taking 4 days to add on another 100000 cases so the government says that it's going to continue increasing testing tested nearly 300000 people yesterday and as well as that that it's going to conduct a c one logical survey around the country to determine the spread of the virus or rather where it's been by testing for antibodies in people. the team from the world health organization is making its 3rd trip to china to investigate the origin of the corona virus outbreak it's been 6 months since opposed to versions were documented by the agency in this country to your reports from beijing doctors there are now busy treating patients a new cost. in this laboratory in beijing scientists are racing to develop a vaccine to end the pandemic in china and around the world but about 6 months since the virus 1st spread from the city of la this team warns that
4:19 pm
a vaccine is at least a year away. in the past we start. now we're doing step a.b.c. at the same time but developing a vaccine in a few months is impossible we have to wait at least until next year for market use that's a best case scenario china's government supports about 20 labs like this one chinese leaders are working to curb the recent resurgence in infections in herb a province in the capital beijing. the government says more than 11000000 people have been tested since the beginning of june more than 300 factions have been confirmed in the capital in recent weeks the latest outbreak in func thai district is linked to the biggest wholesale food market in the capital there have been new local transmissions in recent days that residents remain worried. how the break started what is the origin of the virus and how the al brain happened recently in
4:20 pm
beijing most the residents live in fear because they don't know the real story overall health organization team is jews who arrive in china this weekend to investigate the origin of the outbreak the 3rd trip to the country this year the agency was reportedly frustrated by the chinese government's lack of communication with the epidemic 1st came to light china's leaders denied any cover up and are unlikely to take responsibility for the spread of the pandemic instead $2000000000.00 has been put to the w.h.o. and china is also growing millions to so-called mobs to put. china was solved as a virus problem was money china is happy to use this economic tool rather than taking their. responsibility for the predominate in beijing large scale gatherings and classes have the indefinitely postponed for everyone living here the return to normality is far from straightforward and the fear of infection remains
4:21 pm
a part of everyday life katrina new al-jazeera beijing infection control measures have had to lengthy delays at polling stations in singapore prompting officials to extend voting hours in the general election prime minister lee hsien loong party is expected to hold on to the election comes just weeks after singapore emerged from a 2 month lock down the pandemic and the economy are major concerns of a vote. for it well she is with the asia research institute at the university of nottingham malaysia she joins us now from kuala lumpur thank you time. so as we said this on the big issues of vote is the pandemic response and the economic fallout what's the feeling about how the government responded. well i think it's mixed i mean it's there are singaporean all boaters are quite polarized there's a strong strong group of people who support the opposition their small share traditionally and they're very they have very strong views and there are those that
4:22 pm
are traditionally in the p.p.c. camp and the middle ground traditionally goes to the p.d.p. but the concerns with the pandemic have been twofold one on issues of handling of foreign workers and also the issues associated with whether or not to hold the election and to use the election as an opportunity to raise issues of crisis so the timing has been a question ok the people's action party has been a pall for i believe 6 decades and it is expected to continue how and why has it maintained that position for so long. well there are couple reasons 1st of all of the p.p. has performed quite well in terms of managing the economy and issues of governance so i think they deserve a lot of credit for that over the years i think also the election process itself has been one that has been quite stacked in the sense that it doesn't give a fair opportunity to opposition parties in terms of the way constituencies are arranged also in terms of the issues of freedom of speech and so therefore it has
4:23 pm
there hasn't been as an equitable opportunity for opposition party opposition parties to do well so i think these 2 factors coming are predominantly a play i was going to sit see that the prime minister is a strange brother niecy and yet going to the opposition although he himself is not running for office has that injected anything into this context. i think it started the campaign off where the p.p. has been on the defensive in the last 3 elections we have seen in 2011 the p.-p. had a very defensive campaign in 2015 after the death of lee kuan yew the p.p. control the narrative in this election we've seen the p.p. on the defensive again and least in the angst speeches have been part of that defensiveness where he's raised issues about the p.d.p. one of the issues we have a discussed so far that the opposition has been pushing is whether or not there
4:24 pm
should be some sort of check in parliament they're not calling for a victory or even to govern the calling for a reduction of the supermajority and to actually to quote what has been said in the campaign to not give the p.p. a blank check and this of course taps into the issue of how the pandemic has been handled the question of whether or not there has been turned to voices that have been listened to particularly in the case of managing foreign workers but more generally in terms of managing singapore long term singapore and as a country is really on the facing a very serious time not just with the pandemic but also in terms of its economy keep in mind singapore is an economy that has ridden the wave globalization and it now has to deal with the challenge of it more diggle of allies world and this is these are some of the questions that have been raised in the campaign so far but i take your analysis present with the a's every set institute from kuala lumpur
4:25 pm

4:34 pm
1st get the money from the weaknesses and to identify with a commission of it all of a fence at the moment the police actually class the site. the 3 possible offenses. which allegedly to escort me to due to the airing of the video of the 1st. people off and he said he and the sedition act section 4 impacted one of the sedation at the 2nd possible fancies and section 499 of the police they said criminal defamation and the people of fancy under section 2 treat 3 of the multimedia communications at. it's the main. publishing falls all inaccurate reports which annoy anyone ok so so what happens from here where the employees

4:36 pm
metaphor for the evidence and what. ok what what are your thoughts on how this is likely to go and what is what are your thoughts on on the. as you said the possible offenses that have been committed i mean this is that this is a very strong piece of data unless i'm anyone who wants to know this is an impossible story and obviously as we've been hearing from al jazeera the journalist did reach out to government representatives to get some comment in the story and still included i believe it was the defense minister's press conference pieces from that press conference even though they were unable to attend it themselves. ok. for those critics who are out there to pretty sight it's be do if they have actually watch you know all beatles age i'm sure they would actually be there. and
