session descended into chaos when one m.e.p. claimed he was being silenced the politicians say he was muted for daring to question the transparency of the global chemical weapons watchdog date's investigation into an attack in syria. by you we do not heed cause from. international figures to meet with all the investigators are you going to investigate all aspects in a transparent manner there is no peace with fake news and i would like to apologize to the director general of the a p c w for what he has just had i cannot accept that you can call into question the work of an international organization there is no freedom of speech be no doubt in the european parliament any more or whenever you i literally don't have the floor i missed it what is the subcommittee should to keep its own use is a very popular term. in europe and the us.

uses almost like it i go but i decided as i said earlier that the president said back to. we should. start wars to she's dead right to start wars and when did they do but. it was used at that time why do you wear this rhymes and are you ok to illegally bomb syria so that was. causing war. what the 1st like you say it was i wanted to leave your side and say that if war is to be started by and i deduced peace can be started by a group we want to troops and we want peace. when the matter under discussion was the alleged use of chemical weapons and this video is reported to show the aftermath it was widely circulated of the time although some sources alleged it was staged despite syria denying any involvement in a number of western countries immediately blamed it for the attack and carried i'd
3:04 pm
missile strikes in response. but while the o.p.c. w. concluded the attack did take place leaks from whistleblowers inside the organization say crucial evidence was omitted that i think they did an internal document saying the chlorine cylinders were placed at the scene. not dropped from the euro which had been a key factor in apportioning blame on syria the other leaked discloses that most of the investigators working on the ground were excluded from discussions on the final report mick wallace again thinks if the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons had nothing to lose it would have turned a blind eye to the whistleblowers revelation. your p.c. don't them can be. too nice a lot of musicians could have. the demise of to use chemical weapons or o.p.c. don't you has to read it better and write it looks like to do it the way the director

3:06 pm
a so-called red list country this video shows the moment police entered his house. i didn't care what you were in your essay for greed can tell you that maggie lake thank you for a lot of your having seen it designated how when instructed to do so now when the police came to the door they said they do not need the water to call through my hole he came through the only rest of me on the wrong name for a start which is absolutely ridiculous how police can come for your door without a warrant probably going to arrest me on the wrong name. it's just you know it's absolutely above and beyond all to the tame me when i was 2 days into i sleep in a home with a stipulated that will be on because you're located to form how does it make any sense that. and then keep me is basically a glorified there's no i left this crunch in the place because of the the u.k. government failed the people and i'll terribly the on board the situation. well mr owens had flown back from bahrain transiting through b.
3:07 pm
and frankfurt before ending his journey in manchester abu dhabi is in the united arab emirates which is on the u.k.'s red list to prevent new covert strains being brought into the country the government has ruled anyone returning from the red list country left to quarantine 10 days in a designated hotel on arrival and pay almost 2000 pounds for the privilege mr owens believes however the quarantine conditions are not as safe as you might think. you're treated like. an animal almost you get your meals delivered every day when the not on the door and then they just leave your food on the floor for you to open the door and just be you know pick your food up off the floor the big thing for me is the because the on taken you know extreme measures were put in place to detain me in the video and bring me here so out expect that to be matched by age scene precautions taken and the not there before i start that i've got the contract for
3:08 pm
this for these kind of hotels the only p.p. the wit is a must have got pictures of some of them not even when they dropped leaves open if their nose and i even got pictures of ones i haven't even got over the mouth in my case in particular literally 14 abu dhabi i'm still an international grounds i haven't gained immigration of literally just been transferred through on top of everyone's got to produce a negative test to be a not at all no one could just walk into an airport you've got to go for the bits to get a procedure even in front of it i have to produce my boarding pass on my part and to locate the bomb would be i actually called the consulate and gone through the procedure to try and get the voice recorder of the device but ultimately i was told anyway i'm on just the board's advice or not the onus is on the trouble and so if that's the case then obviously so be it but the events that happened off that are just you know it's ludicrous. the mineral water brand evian made a splash over a tweet encouraging people to drink more water pretty innocuous stuff the issue
3:09 pm
being posted the verge on the 1st day of ramadan the period when muslims are forbidden to drink or eat and came during the day the french company has apologized for the timing of the ad that led to further criticism but many accusing it of bowing to walk pressure charlotte picks up the story. do you mean to me this is perhaps nothing more than a. something to quench your thirst with the ground everyone has found itself in some very poor to hear influence being accused of everything is a lot of phobia to being a victim of intellectual terrorism and it started with a tweet seems innocent enough rowing to retreat if you handily to a group i don't necessarily even say water i mean you are supposed to drink 2 meters a day but new mr mind of a staple for human life was put on the 1st day of ramadan
3:10 pm
a festival with muslims for eating and drinking during daylight hours the reaction king unfolds just. i have to explain to my mother how it is normal for everyone to tweet about water even during ramadan because she thinks they are islamophobia. you know it's ramadan you're abusing if you issued an apology to coors in the offense and said that the person was common to see but not any so everyone sinking even deeper into controversy. i would never buy evian again inadmissible to apologize it's basically a cool health message and yet you have to apologize if in 2020 i want to ask you for drinks water since provoke you should have a consultation. every umbrella under attack for advertising water on burma done day for some islamists muslim festival should be imposed on everyone well no let's stop
3:11 pm
this madness soon was in the street to exult it is a long way off through here in paris people with the best food boy that allegation not. for me no i saw the controversy i saw the to eat frankly i think it could be a coincidence in my opinion there was no bad intention and they deleted the tweet to avoid unnecessary control the city but not at all because they felt guilty. that's it for me it's not a slam a for b. i don't understand it like that for me would denigrate a strong want to say look at her she still veiled for me that islam a full get. him or madonna when i'm doing my ramadan i know where to start in the morning and it goes on until the evening i don't eat so i don't drink it has nothing to do with business or anyone else if someone tweets like this i don't care how many muslims also took to twitter to say that they didn't think that tweet by everyone was is a little thing but we do so want to question that with any muslim had indeed been
3:12 pm
left insulted by evian or if somehow this whole story was the result of a really. playing it rather saying so what do you see paris. afghan translators who help western forces in afghanistan claim they will pay with their blood when u.s. a nato troops are pulled out of the country purported to happen by mid september a former afghan translator for the british army shared his concerns with r.t. . i think minister of defense on the u.k. government as a whole are forgetting that went up with us or our key assets off the the 18 year long military mission in afghanistan and leaving them behind and forgetting them is is putting them at that risk afghanistan is a very dangerous on hostile land in central asia so the trip on the shadow of fear
3:13 pm
and insecurity that exists there was certainly affect the lives of those interrupt us who work for the british forces in afghanistan over the years the u.k. has led hundreds of entrepreneurs who work for the british army now to settle in britain but that's not enough for many critics who say they ought to be eligible for the scheme they're being denied the chance many others u.s. president joe biden months that would roll by september 11th of american and nato troops this week from afghanistan translators who helped them over the years fear the will be left to the mercy of taliban militants who branded them traitors and legitimate targets and 0 and again say as many entrepreneurs have been left traumatized. i am regularly in touch with afghan and top us who are searching for the british army and there are 7 2nd afghanistan and they are not aware of
3:14 pm
their future they are living in trauma unfair every day not knowing what could happen tomorrow or next day to them so the situation is very risky for and with us in afghanistan analysts the british government acts quickly on introduces an inclusive scheme that allows all interpreters to relocate to the u.k. the situation will not be resolved a part of the international. missions objective in afghanistan was to secure europe and american borders from the threat of terrorism so afghans who joined the international forces on the world 1000 tap with us alongside these forces they are actually the core to the ends of the safety and the security of europe and america leaving them behind these notes away off more ality on and on human. still ahead in the program sun sea covert shelter spluttering vaccine rollout in
3:15 pm
europe a scene travel agents are freeing vaccine vacations to russia will take a closer look at after this short break. the world is driven by a dream shaped by the person. who dares thinks. we dare to ask. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be
3:16 pm
an arms race. clearly dramatic developments only mostly and. i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. hello again russia's federal security service says the tane 2 men who it's claimed were plotting a coup in belarus the plants reportedly included a plot to assassinate the country's president alexander lukashenko earlier artie's igor said all of talk me through the details. essentially what we know from the
3:17 pm
russian federal security service or the f.s.b. they have detained 2 men one is a better russian another one has dual citizenship of bella ross and the united states so they were plotting a coup in better routes they planned on the 9th of may it's victory day a very big celebration here in russia and in bed of roses well they planned to capture some of the strategic buildings symbolic buildings like the like the t.v. station the radio station they plan to capture alexander lukashenko and his son potentially even assassinating him this is the information from the by the russian president himself these 2 people arrested in russia detained in russia they are believed to be the ringleaders of the whole operation but they weren't acting alone there was a group and which was detained which had been detained and apparently there was a whole stash of weapons discovered as well last year we spoke quite a bit on the program didn't the you were there in belarus as
3:18 pm
a crisis really followed for quite some time tell us a little bit more a by aspect and has it alleviated you know it well bill rose is still recovering from that crisis because basically what happened after the presidential elections last year which alexander lukashenko the world according to official statistics he wanted by a landslide but a lot of people a lot of people in belarus they did not believe the they said they accused the leader of the president of fraud and they took to the streets there were mass protests and initially they were met with the with with a very harsh police response police police was accused of brutalizing civilians as we were working and. tens of thousands of people at least take to the streets protesting and demanding the lives and the local should go also to counter protests of. supporters who agreed. with the results of the elections and all said that the
3:19 pm
country should come down and well everything should be resolved peacefully and through world through legal procedures so now this whole anti-government protest and bar was has been reduced to me has been localized essentially has been reduced to people like waving opposition flags out of their windows and law enforcement coming and tearing those flags down and this announcement by the security services or brush and of and bile xander look at shan't go. up to this whole story now that they are saying that there were opposition elements that planned an assassination. a criminal case has been opened in front softer the photos of over 20 police officers were plastered on walls in part a suburb so it's led to fears that they and their families may be identified and threatened we spoke to a french police union member who says the stunt was meant as a threat initiative report these are blatant threats intended to intimidate police
3:20 pm
officers were all troubles of concern for the officers identified their families are worried and we're concerned for their families you may think it's the 1st time but it's not the 1st time this is happening to me we've also seen officers being named in other areas it's scary enough that you no longer have boundaries there are people who laim officers families without hesitation and it seems to me that matthew behavior intimidation is encroaching into our private lives because with the police. the incident comes after lawmakers passed a controversial security bill which bans the publications of any images of police in operation those fine gael think could face a sentence of up to 5 years in prison and a 75000 euro fight the new draft law has been slammed by civil rights groups and n.g.o.s who say it could whitewash police abuse the french public has been protesting against it for a lot. i i i.
3:21 pm
i i. i. i i. i i i i i i. i. i i i french police however insists the law is needed to protect officers and their families. as well we try to protect ourselves but it's true there are limits the police have to protect the general population but who defends the police article 24 some things are progressing well but it's not enough we are now waiting for the restrictions to be introduced as soon as possible the alliance police union demanding that the faces of police officers are blurred it's not to hide what
3:22 pm
happens during the arrest because the i.g.p. n police watchdog receives the body count footage everyone is worried about the police making a mistake we want the police to have their faces blurred to protect offices and their families because as we've seen some people don't hesitate to identify officers wives children their addresses and this is a big problem that you want to avoid. global terrorism crippled by a pandemic is scrambling for ways to get travel started again some agencies are hoping to turn a crisis into an opportunity by offering vaccine vacations and russia is among the most popular destinations. today we have around 80 people in moscow who if they want to can be vaccinated tomorrow and fly back on sunday we expect now every week the same quantity so long
3:23 pm
as the vaccines in germany escapes. i have no fears because it's a recommended vaccination from the w.h.o. it has a good international reputation so from the outset and i have no concerns. i want to receive the vaccine myself quicker than we would get out of germany as a 19 year old i would receive it to foster late and my father is an interesting patient and i'm doing it for him actually because i want to protect my family and i don't want to bring in the forest home and think i'm ok i would probably get my turn at the end of the year and i don't want to wait that long and i had other options such as serbia israel iraq and the united states but all fell away for
3:24 pm
various reasons so this was the best offer. the f.b.i. has revealed in turn previously interviewed the gunman behind this week's must shooting at a fed ex office in indianapolis. in march 2020 suspects mother contacted law enforcement to report he might try to commit suicide by cop but he's denied terms observed in the suspects bedroom at that time he was interviewed by the f.b.i. in april 2020 no racially motivated violent extremism ideology was identified during the course of the assessment and no criminal violation was found the gunman
3:25 pm
1st opened fire in the car park of the fed ex facility before entering the building who killed 8 people in all before turning the gun on himself police identified the shooter is 19 year old brandon scott hall who is a former employee at the facility. but it is not the 1st time the f.b.i. has let people who go on to be mass killers slipped through the net time or in search of was interviewed 2 years before he and his brother killed 3 people in the 2013 bomb attack at the boston marathon or more of a teen who murdered 49 people in our london nightclub shooting in 2016 had been under 2 separate investigations although both were dropped william was investigated by the bureau a year before he killed 2 people in the us tech high school shooting in 27 t. let's go live now to political activists lawyer in the u.s. christian month sarah christian welcome this is becoming something of a worrying trend isn't it people who've been on the f.b.i.'s radar who go on to
3:26 pm
become mass killers something is wrong here. yes i think something is wrong i think we must put more pressure on officials and authorities especially in the f.b.i. to to not let go of these individuals and if they are to be let go there has to be some very strict monitoring because we cannot allow these things to continue to happen and there is a clear movement here in the united states from different political sectors to to abolish the 2nd amendment but i believe that the 2nd amendment should not be abolished i think people should have the right to bear arms but it is that it is the duty of the government to make sure that the people who are properly prepared and who are obviously mentally fit to carry a weapon are able to carry a weapon but without lying because because after being interviewed by the f.b.i.
3:27 pm
the killer was stripped of his gun christian yet he still find a way to taint another is that not the biggest concern. well there is a concern but i think we always have to put the eye on the ball which is that whether we take away the 2nd amendment that's not going to stop people from getting a weapon i mean people can get a weapon in the black market and still commit crimes the issue here is not the 2nd amendment the issue here is what do we do with people who are clearly disenfranchised people who are psychologically not fit and what measures are we going to be taking so i think that we can continue here saying that we have to take guns away from people but i don't think this is the issue because we have millions of people who have weapons and then go off on the street and start killing people so there is a clear issue with psychologically disturbed individuals who have access to weapons people know they are psychologically disturbed the f.b.i. knows they're psychologically disturbed and yet they're left unchecked and then they go on to commit these crimes i think there has to be some accountability on
3:28 pm
the part of the government of federal agencies to do their job a little bit better and make sure that these and who are not like allegedly fit go on to commit these crimes you would feel in this case that's especially so wouldn't you after his own mother felt that there was deep suspicions about what he was going to do death by cop suicide by cop excuse me was will as she feared basically making the police shoot him for perhaps threatening them that's what she feared he was going to do and yet the f.b.i. let him go. well of course and i think that sends very. critical message to many families in the united states who are afraid now to be in public places because we don't know who is not psychologically fit to be industry carrying a weapon and yet we have our federal agencies who are normal these people even the families the nouns that they are not psychologically fit to have these weapons on
3:29 pm
them and yet they're set free so i think there has to be some type of accountability on the part of the government and federal agencies in charge of this to make sure that these cracks do not continue to open because we cannot allow innocent people to keep dying basically because someone who is not fit to carry a weapon carries the weapon and comedian and they go on and commit these crimes i think this is a terrible drama and we have to stop it but i don't think the way to go it's the fall of this narrative that that people should be stripped of their 2nd amendment i believe that we have to account hold the 2nd amendment we have to make sure that people who are nuts like logically fit do not carry weapons and go on to commit these crimes thank you christian months or a typical activist and lawyer live in the program. thank you time for a weekend visit to the kaiser report studios next catch blocks and stacy in moments here on r.t. international cease. it's
3:30 pm
been decades since the fall of spain's fascist regime but old wounds still haven't healed. into the one that i was reading and it was. because for me from you know. the bottom is above or. on the bus at us as mean older than it was and i think ultimately you know thousands of newborn babies were torn from their mothers and given away and forced adoption that only was the 5th or that of my own role as a fellow mentor to this day mothers still search for grown children while adults look in hope for their birth parents.
