of Germany versus Nigeria. `` Algeria. Luis Suarez has apologised

:00:00.:00:00.

to Giorgio Chiellini for biting him to stop we will tell you in 15

:00:00.:00:00.

minutes. Hello, and welcome to

:00:00.:00:13.

our look ahead to what the papers With me are Eleanor Mills,

:00:14.:00:16.

Editorial Director of The Sunday Times and Owen Jones, Columnist

:00:17.:00:20.

for The Independent and author. Let's have a look at the front

:00:21.:00:30.

pages. We will start with that police mugshot of Rolf Harris

:00:31.:00:34.

dominating the front page of the Telegraph. The entertainer was found

:00:35.:00:38.

guilty of 12 charges of indecently assaulting four girls. Metro says

:00:39.:00:43.

some of the crimes took place while he was fronting a campaign to raise

:00:44.:00:48.

awareness about child abuse. The Guardian shows a picture there of Mr

:00:49.:00:52.

Harris leaving court with his family after hearing the guilty verdicts.

:00:53.:00:56.

The express also carries that picture, that police picture of the

:00:57.:01:02.

entertainer Rolf Harris. That is also the front page of the Daily

:01:03.:01:08.

Mail. The Financial Times doing a different story. It is talking about

:01:09.:01:15.

BNP Paribas facing pay cuts for its staff after paying a fine of $9

:01:16.:01:20.

billion for breaking sanctions laws. We will start with the Daily Mail.

:01:21.:01:25.

Rolf Harris, of course, is on the front page of most of the papers.

:01:26.:01:30.

For 50 years, he was the face of wholesome only TV. Now we know the

:01:31.:01:32.

truth. Rolf Harris is a predator truth. Rolf Harris is a predator who

:01:33.:01:37.

duped us all. I grew up with him. He was a familiar face on TV. He is a

:01:38.:01:45.

criminal now. I think it is a really strange day, because with all of the

:01:46.:01:48.

Jimmy Savile staff, there was a sense it seemed a bit weird. But

:01:49.:01:52.

Rolf Harris, he was someone that keeps really loved. I remember Have

:01:53.:02:02.

You Guessed What It Is Yet? I think everybody feels horrendous for the

:02:03.:02:06.

victims. I think everybody feels a sense of eight told about Rolf

:02:07.:02:09.

Harris, and details are really gritty. He has been found guilty of

:02:10.:02:16.

all 12 counts. The Telegraph as saying there are 13 more people have

:02:17.:02:23.

already cold in. There may be 37 more people who have come forward.

:02:24.:02:32.

There was this awful film of him singing a song about sexual abuse of

:02:33.:02:36.

children which he fronted in 1985, and that is such a brazen either

:02:37.:02:41.

hiding in plain sight or a kind of really weird omnipotence split

:02:42.:02:47.

personality thing going on. I think it is awful. There was his wife and

:02:48.:02:54.

daughter at the trial. The fact he was abusing these children while his

:02:55.:02:57.

daughter was sleeping, that must be awful for his family. One of his

:02:58.:03:02.

victims, that was the evidence brought before the jury. The fact

:03:03.:03:07.

is, he probably reached the point, and this seemed to be what came out

:03:08.:03:12.

of the prosecution segment today, it was almost as if he was getting away

:03:13.:03:16.

with it for so long, he believed he could continue getting away with it

:03:17.:03:20.

until the end of time. He was above the law. That is the parallel with

:03:21.:03:25.

the likes of Jimmy Savile. That sense of being untouchable and using

:03:26.:03:28.

their celebrity not just in order to gain access to people who they

:03:29.:03:32.

horrifically abused but also to protect themselves from justice.

:03:33.:03:37.

We're talking about victims as young as... Seven. The other disturbing

:03:38.:03:45.

parallel is the use of his daughter almost to gain access to their

:03:46.:03:48.

friends and molesting a friend in front of the daughter. The key point

:03:49.:03:54.

in one of the clips you show before, this should encourage others to come

:03:55.:03:59.

forward. No matter how influential all`powerful or well`respected, and

:04:00.:04:05.

we all talk about how this man we do in his childhood. It was worth with

:04:06.:04:10.

Jimmy Savile because he was so widely suspected, yet nothing was

:04:11.:04:16.

done. `` it was worse. We know every year, 400,000 women are sexually

:04:17.:04:21.

assaulted. 80,000 direct. A small proportion of those ever come to

:04:22.:04:25.

trial and come to justice. If any good comes out of this, this will

:04:26.:04:32.

encourage other people to come forward and be believed to be able

:04:33.:04:36.

to have the confidence to be supported as well. This is a day

:04:37.:04:43.

of... We were looking before it victim of one of the victims. It is

:04:44.:04:49.

young age to be abused like that. It will have a lasting damaging effect

:04:50.:04:54.

on those people. They are survivors. They have survived a terrible

:04:55.:04:58.

incident, but this is such an important day for them because it is

:04:59.:05:01.

finding justice after feeling ignored and powerless at the hands

:05:02.:05:04.

of this celebrity who got away with it. Long. One of his victims said

:05:05.:05:11.

she contemplated suicide. Let's move the Guardian. National treasure,

:05:12.:05:17.

paedophile, Harris. A reference to his place in society for up to 50

:05:18.:05:24.

years. He was a national treasure. He even painted the Queen. He had an

:05:25.:05:30.

OBE. They said they would take away the fellowship. Also it looks like

:05:31.:05:37.

he wait `` he may well die in jail. Papers are saying that it will be a

:05:38.:05:42.

custodial sentence and a long one. It looks as though maybe there are

:05:43.:05:46.

others as well. Going on to the point you were talking about about

:05:47.:05:50.

this giving a voice to those victims who felt they did not have a voice

:05:51.:05:54.

for such a long time, I was speaking to the former Director of Public

:05:55.:05:58.

Prosecutions Keir Starmer who was saying this vindicates the notion in

:05:59.:06:03.

our criminal justice system that suspects are named in these kinds of

:06:04.:06:10.

trials. Even before a guilty verdict. People do come forward.

:06:11.:06:16.

They knew was Rolf Harris. It is a key point to make. Before 1988, it

:06:17.:06:22.

was anonymity for both sides. Margaret Thatcher APPLAUSE

:06:23.:06:25.

Government, it was right for the government to change the law.

:06:26.:06:30.

`` Margaret Thatcher APPLAUSE Government.

:06:31.:06:32.

There are all of these false accusations. People in a sense are

:06:33.:06:38.

the victims who are wrongly named. The real issue we have at the moment

:06:39.:06:42.

is that most victims, most survivors of sexual assault or rape, to come

:06:43.:06:47.

forward, don't end up justice, don't end up with those responsible being

:06:48.:06:52.

taken to justice, and they are likely to do it again. We have this

:06:53.:06:55.

sense of this was all in the past. Things are different then. White dig

:06:56.:06:59.

into the past like this? But also that sense that all of these people

:07:00.:07:04.

have been wrongly dragged to the courts. `` white dig into the past?

:07:05.:07:11.

Seven people have finally got justice after being too long

:07:12.:07:13.

protected because of their status. It should encourage all of those

:07:14.:07:18.

hoping to come forward. Very briefly, a final word on this. Dave

:07:19.:07:24.

Lee Travis found innocent of the charges. Freddie Starr as well.

:07:25.:07:29.

There is this, and Keir Starmer pointed to this, there is a balance.

:07:30.:07:36.

You have to look at the evidence. William Roache also got off. What

:07:37.:07:40.

this shows is that the justices and does work. There was a lot of chat

:07:41.:07:45.

beforehand that these cases were too historical. You could try them

:07:46.:07:48.

because they were so long ago. What has been so compelling about Rolf

:07:49.:07:53.

Harris's is that people have been saying the same thing. Same with Max

:07:54.:07:58.

Clifford. What has been proved is that you absolutely can try this

:07:59.:08:02.

case is fairly, and the ones where they are not fair, they won't work.

:08:03.:08:06.

There is a sense that justice is being done and seen to be done and

:08:07.:08:10.

that has to be a good thing for the victims, and no one should ever feel

:08:11.:08:13.

they are above the law and will get away with it again. Let's hope not.

:08:14.:08:17.

We will stay with the Guardian. We will go down to the bottom of the

:08:18.:08:23.

front page. Israel says Hamas will pay for teenagers, those three

:08:24.:08:25.

teenagers who have been found dead in Hebron. One cabinet member is

:08:26.:08:32.

saying tonight that they should be a widespread operation to eradicate

:08:33.:08:37.

Hamas. These are horrific criminal acts. Let's remember these three

:08:38.:08:40.

names, because what happens now, they will be forgotten. Nothing will

:08:41.:08:54.

ever be able to repair the horrific grief and misery that their parents

:08:55.:08:57.

are now going through. These are crimes no one should underestimate

:08:58.:09:00.

or downplay what has happened to these people. At the same time, five

:09:01.:09:06.

Palestinians were also killed following the disappearances of

:09:07.:09:10.

these teenagers. These were five Palestinians in the West Bank, and

:09:11.:09:13.

others have been killed in air strikes in the Gaza Strip. These

:09:14.:09:17.

also horrors and miserable tragedies which have ripped families apart.

:09:18.:09:22.

The key point is this. These are treated as criminal acts, and

:09:23.:09:27.

justice, these people responsible, they have to be brought to justice.

:09:28.:09:33.

They cannot have corrective punishment and responsibility

:09:34.:09:37.

whereby other people as a result of another operation, well, this is

:09:38.:09:42.

early happens because innocent have been killed, but we do know want a

:09:43.:09:46.

disproportionate attack where many people on both sides die, and that

:09:47.:09:54.

is the data at the moment. `` that is the danger at the moment. They

:09:55.:09:59.

would argue to retaliate in some shape or form. But that will be

:10:00.:10:04.

complicated. It is not as Hamas they are dealing with, but the more

:10:05.:10:11.

moderate Fatah faction. As we know, Israel is an absolute pressure

:10:12.:10:13.

cooker of all sorts of problems. What happened to these lawyers is

:10:14.:10:18.

awful. They were coming back from their religious school. But what is

:10:19.:10:24.

really terrifying is the prospect it raises of even more widespread

:10:25.:10:29.

violence within Israel. The occupied territories are a source of

:10:30.:10:35.

contention anyway. The fact that the president is blaming Hamas for the

:10:36.:10:38.

murders and saying they will pay a heavy price, Hamas will pay, and the

:10:39.:10:45.

economic ministers saying now is the time to act. The Times tomorrow is

:10:46.:10:51.

saying there will be more shelling and military aides in Israel, and

:10:52.:10:54.

the last thing anyone wants there is more bloodshed. It is terrible but

:10:55.:10:58.

these poor kids were murdered, and that is awful. Whoever did it should

:10:59.:11:04.

pay. It is the prospect of another mighty congregation `` conflagration

:11:05.:11:09.

in that area. Given what is happening in Syria, we have had the

:11:10.:11:16.

insurgents and outing themselves today. Life is a life. A death is a

:11:17.:11:23.

death. A tragedy is a tragedy. We have had five Palestinians killed in

:11:24.:11:29.

the West Bank in retaliatory raids following the disappearance of these

:11:30.:11:33.

teenagers who have been so terribly and tragically killed. That ran

:11:34.:11:40.

setup. We have had other incidents with deaths on both sides, but let's

:11:41.:11:45.

make sure now that we do not have a situation where there is a huge

:11:46.:11:47.

escalation and collective punishment is dealt out.

:11:48.:12:03.

considering their options. Suarez, it was an accident, I am a little

:12:04.:12:10.

bit sorry! He originally said he fell into the sky, just happening to

:12:11.:12:20.

hit his shoulder blades. I am a mother of two kids, and you know

:12:21.:12:23.

they have done something wrong, and they say they did not do it. The

:12:24.:12:27.

whole world saw him do it, finally he said he had a few days to go

:12:28.:12:36.

home, talk to his parents. We have all fallen over, and clamped down. A

:12:37.:12:50.

zombie epidemic. You will be back in one hour's time, little bit shorter,

:12:51.:12:57.

actually. Thank you for that. Stay with us, much more coming up at the

:12:58.:13:03.

top of the hour. Including more fallout from that decision that Rolf

:13:04.:13:09.

Harris is guilty of assaulting four women. Coming up now, the sport.

:13:10.:13:33.

Welcome to Sports day, Germany cannot find a way past Algeria,
