1:05 pm
how concerning the developments that we're seeing in malaysia concerning our colleagues from from one o one east. so 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 to answer questions 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 an extreme 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
1:06 pm
of the police chief which you just showed which in which he assured. a shorter the press conference that our journalists would be safe. i guess anyone just has to watch the piece to see you know it's a strong it's an impartial piece of journalism i think we should also talk about the lengths that the team went to to get a government voice on air i mean they include parts of the press conference from which only state media were allowed to attend and i mean reached out for interviews in that they did they reached out to the government and this is standard practice for us as journalists we are professional journalists we abide by a code of ethics and a code of journalism which requires that we need all sides of a story so the team did reach out on a number of occasions to government senior government officials and the authorities in those requests for interviews were made they were either ignored or in some cases declined our right so we the team went to their utmost to get all sides of
1:07 pm
the story including the government side. in order to get the government narrative what they did was to include the. in the film comments and statements made by the defense minister in 2 separate press conferences that he gave so as well as having the narrative and the. the words of the migrant workers and malaysian workers as well as malaysian doctors as well as malaysian humanitarian organizations we needed the government side in the government perspective and so that was included in the film and i must say we remain open to to the government to to come we put out a press release yesterday we have invited the malaysian government to respond to the film and to to you know to answer any questions and we are open our channel is open for the malaysian government response the documentary also acknowledged you know malaysia is pandemic response in terms of containing the spread of the virus
1:08 pm
but the seal was so documented events as they on folded in real time in malaysia and included interviews with migrants both documented and undocumented and you know work or other concern for them now the people who were interviewed as part of this case so yes from what i understand as well as the trolling in the boxing of some of our staff and when i say doc singh what i mean is is using online means to try and find personal details and then publish them publicly i believe this is also 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 the photographs of pictures of them have been shown in the streets posted online and it does seem that there is a. sort of atmosphere online to try and get information on these
1:09 pm
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 threats that have 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 will actually be talking to someone from the center for independent journalism in kuala lumpur a little later in the program just finally giles what happens from here well the police the police chief gave his press conference and he said that now that the team have are have been questioned by the police i believe the next stage is that the police report goes to the attorney general in kuala lumpur and we will await the you know the decision or the statement which should come from the attorney general about what the next step is ok thank you that tells chantal they're

managing director of al-jazeera english thank you. are on the home of holly is the chief executive or chief executive rather and founder of the garland center for health and social policy in kuala lumpur he says the documentary sheds light on many longstanding issues. well these sort of issue shouldn't be sensitive really i think from a humanitarian perspective especially when you're looking at it from a public health angle which is basically to care and to provide care for those who are in need we should be able to look at my coworkers as being part of the population in which we depend on their labor and they depend on us to help in allowing them to generate income for themselves and for the families so definitely this. documentary that you have. broadcast it actually brings to light quite a number of difficult longstanding and unfortunately. uncomfortable
1:11 pm
issues that affect a nation society and that's got to do with xenophobia bigotry and racism and how we look at these issues that in this context and because they're foreign because they're non-national it actually highlights even further how vulnerable people can be when they are forced to confront these issues and unfortunately at this point of time we see that the government has taken this the wrong way. in a way that it has misread we believe. rather than to look at the good aspects of this documentary because policy changes need to happen we have constant michael look at labor and it has yet to happen and it's been that way for decades but you must we emphasize here that. in no way migrant workers if they were positive for cocaine $1000.00 mistreated their health authorities provided the same kind of treatment which was humane compassionate and equal that you would expect for

1:21 pm
a long term deal they started in 2018 when they were they were then stalled because sort of didn't want to negotiate with the with the corso side after course of all the taxes and serbian high taxes and serbian goodson this is the 1st time the sides met there were supposed to meet a norm the 27th of june in washington. with the president donald trump of the president of course of hushing touchable supposed to meet both. president of the of course it was accused of war crimes and then that was postponed so this is the 1st meeting all through 2018 and everybody even president of france manuel mccrone who is one of the negotiators and the german chancellor angela merkel they all said that there could be only achieve small steps so we will see in the following days and months what will happen some of the 1st statements of the 1st video conference from serbian president is that will be an inside game with
1:22 pm
a maximalist thick as he said the monza that is obviously something that is not acceptable for the serbian aside but we will see what will happen in the following days they're supposed to meet again the same way on sunday so small steps i care that will be made i think this meeting itself is also a step ahead because as i said nobody talked to each other since 2000 and. take that update there do some how'd she have in belgrade. england may see an influx of international passenger arrivals with people traveling from 59 countries no longer needing to go into quarantine the compulsory 2 week self isolation has been scrapped for travelers from countries considered reduced risk including spain italy australia and japan the u.s. is not on the list scotland however says it will still quarantine passengers from places with high virus numbers including spain. let's go live not to worry chalons who's standing by for us at london city airport rory so another step i guess
1:23 pm
towards opening up toward some sort of normality for england. yeah that's right city airport you can see behind me and how you measure it but it's basically london's smallest commercial airports has been shut for 3 months pretty much for the duration of the lock down and now it's open again they have 4 flights that are going to be arriving here today the 1st in in a couple of hours time at the moment this is pretty small fry really they're saying that it's encouraging that flights are on again but saying it's small steps the flights that are coming in are all be a city flyer flights they're coming from. in spain from pommy york or in spain from my beater in spain or from florence in italy as the days go on
1:24 pm
they're expected to add more flights to that but they're still saying that you know 5 to 10 percent of normal capacity they're not expecting to be up to 100 percent certainly by the end of the year i think the bigger airports heathrow gatwick cetera might be up and running at something like full capacity quicker than that but this is still early days here i mean let's look back at the way this is all transpired the british governments didn't impose koren seen on people coming in from other countries until a month ago now when they did that there was a huge outcry of protest from the travel industry and from m.p.'s within the conservative party who said that this was a city thing to do this late in the game. essentially at that point when the corn scene was introduced the people the countries that the u.k. was saying had you know people coming from those had to be quarantined in many cases had lower levels of coronavirus than the u.k.
1:25 pm
itself so it was something considered something of a back track when the government. announced a week ago that it was going to be lifting those core unseen measures but yeah we have that in place now if you're coming from say 5960 countries a few more british overseas territories then when you arrive back in england at least you will not have to go into 2 weeks according to you. thank you that update troy chalons there live from london. well time now for the weather has everton was in gaza looking over your well still disappointingly cold and cloud across the northwest of europe came but it will improve as we go on through the weekend so we can get as far as kirk is concerned down in south and you see a fair amount of cloud across northern parts there through the u.k. pushing over towards central parts of europe and this shot line of clout that we have just up towards moscow that made its way through over the last 2448 hours or

1:30 pm
executive director of the center for independent journalism she joins us now from kuala lumpur thank you for your time what was your response to this news that al jazeera journalists are being questioned over this documentary. we can will eventually break him up actually it is already see a spike in that number of cases media was already being either investigator or be charged under center and very repressive laws. may believe that 10 of silencing dissent so instead of and with others here are happened. in addition to view and deeply concerned. let me know how it is that it was completely disproportionate to the government's action. concerning because the immediate reaction that their time gives was to upon the feeling of the documentary was to basically investigate rather than provide
1:31 pm
a rational response of justification in terms of what was being the lack in the documentary in any given society we would have expected that the government even consider it a conducting an independent inquiry to see if there were indeed any possibility of mismanagement or abuse of power but. the incident of the reaction of the spirit is something that is not new or something that bia i mean if you take a step back it's really not surprising because just in the course of the last couple of months we've seen a spike in the strengthening of spaces basically for media especially media independent media especially being denied access to state press conferences they were also being denied access to be there when they were sitting we have so accessible have been granted to state media official media and we have
1:32 pm
also in the last 4 months since the coming to comer of the new regime of the new government we have seen many a tad. incidents of differences. an opinion or incidence of the news that reports were being published that places the government in a very unfavorable light we've seen the government and not to. take immediate action that is really not necessarily very legitimate or necessary or proportionate to any form of undermining. media freedom i believe seeing expenses for. individuals such as from our own media outlets like militia he added to us from. who were now being either investigated or charged really for reasons which are not pulling justifier but. the documentary in question and
1:33 pm
knowledge is as i mentioned earlier malaysia's pandemic response in terms of containing the spread of the virus but the documentary focuses on the experiences of migrant workers during the during the lock down your reporting seeing a spike in hate speech against foreign workers can you tell us about that. so this is the concern what we see the moment the government action is seen as being completely disproportionate it has led to a lot of people basically coming out especially government ministers it's a government coming out strolled strongly against the document but it's also the influence of the propaganda or the flow of disinformation and so that's all the language that's been used to treat or to in order to
1:34 pm
refer to migrants and refugees so giving us really in terms of hate speech and the hate speech it's basically if it's on come to marry national that's a nationalistic language but it's also i mean there are many of them and it's racist and xenophobic and it is leading in certain instances to that and also in a tense a while then it's the rest just. and there are also a few individuals who were interviewed. in this as in the documentary who was identity has been released in the social media platforms. increase the number saying that's happening and the reaction if only because there is a possibility now that there would be kind of a $600.00 in our games migrants are in the case of the state
1:35 pm
even got as far as releasing personal information of a person who was interviewed in the documentary and that release of information is but this that's a big to there's a division because now you you have more people being afraid. because there would be further targeting of. i know this because you know that you know most migrants are taking a great job so maybe and that all of this comes out because of the number of undocumented migrants who are here in malaysia and the issue also often they get it if you asylum seekers and refugees then maybe you can do all the layers of intersectionality and raise and religion and therefore it's created a real sense of fear. and almost in this is all further that's
1:36 pm
a bit of added on by how a lot of these information attacks are also politicized. i mean you can have government and you know agencies basically are heads of. all human government ministers coming out with these kinds of read the design of for bank statements yeah we're going to have to leave it there my apologies it will have to leave it there for time really appreciate your analysis and i do there the executive director of the center for independent journalism we appreciate it. a team from world health organization is making its 3rd trip to china to investigate the origin of the crown of us outbreak it's been 6 months since the 1st infections were documented by the agency and as katrina here reports from beijing doctors there are now busy treating patients a new class to its. 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
1:37 pm
since the virus 1st spread from the city of on this team warns that a vaccine is at least a year away. in the past we start. etc now we're doing step a.b. cd 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 texans 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 the president's remains worried about how the
1:38 pm
break started what is origin of the virus and how the al brain happened recently in 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 2 $1000000000.00 has been put to the w.h.o. and china is also warned 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 the responsibility for the pub in beijing large scale gatherings and classes have been indefinitely postponed for everyone living here the return to normality

is far from straightforward and the fear of infection remains a part of everyday life katrine e.u. al-jazeera beijing. australia is harboring the number of citizens allowed to arrive from overseas since march only citizens and permanent residents have been allowed in prime minister scott morrison says the decision follows a surge of coronavirus cases in the state of victoria at a time when victoria was able to take flights again then obviously the challenges to the system presently caused by the outbreak in victoria would have subsided and that then of course would mean that would be less pressure on the system nationally so until that is under. under control or even beyond that has been under control and the tories are able to take up those. flights again then will be in a restricted to pass city for the forseeable future to more latin american
