of Germany versus Nigeria. `` Algeria. Luis Suarez has apologised
to Giorgio Chiellini for biting him to stop we will tell you in 15
minutes. Hello, and welcome to
our look ahead to what the papers With me are Eleanor Mills,
Editorial Director of The Sunday Times and Owen Jones, Columnist
for The Independent and author. Let's have a look at the front
pages. We will start with that police mugshot of Rolf Harris
dominating the front page of the Telegraph. The entertainer was found
guilty of 12 charges of indecently assaulting four girls. Metro says
some of the crimes took place while he was fronting a campaign to raise
awareness about child abuse. The Guardian shows a picture there of Mr
Harris leaving court with his family after hearing the guilty verdicts.
The express also carries that picture, that police picture of the
entertainer Rolf Harris. That is also the front page of the Daily
Mail. The Financial Times doing a different story. It is talking about
BNP Paribas facing pay cuts for its staff after paying a fine of $9
billion for breaking sanctions laws. We will start with the Daily Mail.
Rolf Harris, of course, is on the front page of most of the papers.
For 50 years, he was the face of wholesome only TV. Now we know the
truth. Rolf Harris is a predator truth. Rolf Harris is a predator who
duped us all. I grew up with him. He was a familiar face on TV. He is a
criminal now. I think it is a really strange day, because with all of the
Jimmy Savile staff, there was a sense it seemed a bit weird. But
Rolf Harris, he was someone that keeps really loved. I remember Have
You Guessed What It Is Yet? I think everybody feels horrendous for the
victims. I think everybody feels a sense of eight told about Rolf
Harris, and details are really gritty. He has been found guilty of
all 12 counts. The Telegraph as saying there are 13 more people have
already cold in. There may be 37 more people who have come forward.
There was this awful film of him singing a song about sexual abuse of
children which he fronted in 1985, and that is such a brazen either
hiding in plain sight or a kind of really weird omnipotence split
personality thing going on. I think it is awful. There was his wife and
daughter at the trial. The fact he was abusing these children while his
daughter was sleeping, that must be awful for his family. One of his
victims, that was the evidence brought before the jury. The fact
is, he probably reached the point, and this seemed to be what came out
of the prosecution segment today, it was almost as if he was getting away
with it for so long, he believed he could continue getting away with it
until the end of time. He was above the law. That is the parallel with
the likes of Jimmy Savile. That sense of being untouchable and using
their celebrity not just in order to gain access to people who they
horrifically abused but also to protect themselves from justice.
We're talking about victims as young as... Seven. The other disturbing
parallel is the use of his daughter almost to gain access to their
friends and molesting a friend in front of the daughter. The key point
in one of the clips you show before, this should encourage others to come
forward. No matter how influential all`powerful or well`respected, and
we all talk about how this man we do in his childhood. It was worth with
Jimmy Savile because he was so widely suspected, yet nothing was
done. `` it was worse. We know every year, 400,000 women are sexually
assaulted. 80,000 direct. A small proportion of those ever come to
trial and come to justice. If any good comes out of this, this will
encourage other people to come forward and be believed to be able
to have the confidence to be supported as well. This is a day
of... We were looking before it victim of one of the victims. It is
young age to be abused like that. It will have a lasting damaging effect
on those people. They are survivors. They have survived a terrible
incident, but this is such an important day for them because it is
finding justice after feeling ignored and powerless at the hands
of this celebrity who got away with it. Long. One of his victims said
she contemplated suicide. Let's move the Guardian. National treasure,
paedophile, Harris. A reference to his place in society for up to 50
years. He was a national treasure. He even painted the Queen. He had an
OBE. They said they would take away the fellowship. Also it looks like
he wait `` he may well die in jail. Papers are saying that it will be a
custodial sentence and a long one. It looks as though maybe there are
others as well. Going on to the point you were talking about about
this giving a voice to those victims who felt they did not have a voice
for such a long time, I was speaking to the former Director of Public
Prosecutions Keir Starmer who was saying this vindicates the notion in
our criminal justice system that suspects are named in these kinds of
trials. Even before a guilty verdict. People do come forward.
They knew was Rolf Harris. It is a key point to make. Before 1988, it
was anonymity for both sides. Margaret Thatcher APPLAUSE
Government, it was right for the government to change the law.
`` Margaret Thatcher APPLAUSE Government.
There are all of these false accusations. People in a sense are
the victims who are wrongly named. The real issue we have at the moment
is that most victims, most survivors of sexual assault or rape, to come
forward, don't end up justice, don't end up with those responsible being
taken to justice, and they are likely to do it again. We have this
sense of this was all in the past. Things are different then. White dig
into the past like this? But also that sense that all of these people
have been wrongly dragged to the courts. `` white dig into the past?
Seven people have finally got justice after being too long
protected because of their status. It should encourage all of those
hoping to come forward. Very briefly, a final word on this. Dave
Lee Travis found innocent of the charges. Freddie Starr as well.
There is this, and Keir Starmer pointed to this, there is a balance.
You have to look at the evidence. William Roache also got off. What
this shows is that the justices and does work. There was a lot of chat
beforehand that these cases were too historical. You could try them
because they were so long ago. What has been so compelling about Rolf
Harris's is that people have been saying the same thing. Same with Max
Clifford. What has been proved is that you absolutely can try this
case is fairly, and the ones where they are not fair, they won't work.
There is a sense that justice is being done and seen to be done and
that has to be a good thing for the victims, and no one should ever feel
they are above the law and will get away with it again. Let's hope not.
We will stay with the Guardian. We will go down to the bottom of the
front page. Israel says Hamas will pay for teenagers, those three
teenagers who have been found dead in Hebron. One cabinet member is
saying tonight that they should be a widespread operation to eradicate
Hamas. These are horrific criminal acts. Let's remember these three
names, because what happens now, they will be forgotten. Nothing will
ever be able to repair the horrific grief and misery that their parents
are now going through. These are crimes no one should underestimate
or downplay what has happened to these people. At the same time, five
Palestinians were also killed following the disappearances of
these teenagers. These were five Palestinians in the West Bank, and
others have been killed in air strikes in the Gaza Strip. These
also horrors and miserable tragedies which have ripped families apart.
The key point is this. These are treated as criminal acts, and
justice, these people responsible, they have to be brought to justice.
They cannot have corrective punishment and responsibility
whereby other people as a result of another operation, well, this is
early happens because innocent have been killed, but we do know want a
disproportionate attack where many people on both sides die, and that
is the data at the moment. `` that is the danger at the moment. They
would argue to retaliate in some shape or form. But that will be
complicated. It is not as Hamas they are dealing with, but the more
moderate Fatah faction. As we know, Israel is an absolute pressure
cooker of all sorts of problems. What happened to these lawyers is
awful. They were coming back from their religious school. But what is
really terrifying is the prospect it raises of even more widespread
violence within Israel. The occupied territories are a source of
contention anyway. The fact that the president is blaming Hamas for the
murders and saying they will pay a heavy price, Hamas will pay, and the
economic ministers saying now is the time to act. The Times tomorrow is
saying there will be more shelling and military aides in Israel, and
the last thing anyone wants there is more bloodshed. It is terrible but
these poor kids were murdered, and that is awful. Whoever did it should
pay. It is the prospect of another mighty congregation `` conflagration
in that area. Given what is happening in Syria, we have had the
insurgents and outing themselves today. Life is a life. A death is a
death. A tragedy is a tragedy. We have had five Palestinians killed in
the West Bank in retaliatory raids following the disappearance of these
teenagers who have been so terribly and tragically killed. That ran
setup. We have had other incidents with deaths on both sides, but let's
make sure now that we do not have a situation where there is a huge
escalation and collective punishment is dealt out.
considering their options. Suarez, it was an accident, I am a little
bit sorry! He originally said he fell into the sky, just happening to
hit his shoulder blades. I am a mother of two kids, and you know
they have done something wrong, and they say they did not do it. The
whole world saw him do it, finally he said he had a few days to go
home, talk to his parents. We have all fallen over, and clamped down. A
zombie epidemic. You will be back in one hour's time, little bit shorter,
actually. Thank you for that. Stay with us, much more coming up at the
top of the hour. Including more fallout from that decision that Rolf
Harris is guilty of assaulting four women. Coming up now, the sport.
