i. this film takes you inside a multimillion dollar corruption scandal. if the minister wants to get paid i'm sure you pay him. much and we believe in chennai why this issue certain people such as. the minister who but whatever happened to want to see. how. we reveal how an icelandic company is plundering africa's resources going to get us to some of the clothes that are going to help. fibroid in its politicians' utilities have said look we've got on the side of the average those. people who.
now do serious investigative unit will pertain to a cache of confidential documents from wiki leaks this is because russian scheme goes to the highest level i'm not going to be. buying political intrigues that would be corruption but the files reveal that to me being cabinet members the minister of fisheries and the minister of justice are accused of accepting bribes you didn't know that your company was receiving money well i challenge you that would be proceeds to show you the bank statement. and the man who paid the bribes tells his story. i can do much for that form of costs the minister was right to have been patient and. if you speak. to them and just think about people is there movement. in all weeds.
for 5 years you have a stephens and worked iceland's biggest fishing company sam harry. his main row he says was to obtain lucrative fishing rights in africa by any means necessary. from 2012 the 2 middle of 2016 i was paying but i've. lost paying any kind of payments on behalf of somebody. they have probably made 12150000000 your star out of it. but in 2016 years and us decided to blow the whistle. he
resigned and left sam harry but not before seizing over 40 gigabytes of emails spreadsheets photographs and other company data. the documents form a blueprint of how foreign company steal resources from african nations. they're just dropping the resources of african companies for their own benefits and they leave nothing left in the company. knew i had to conform to. your highness past the documents to wiki leaks who gave them to out to 0 as investigative unit and by sloan's national broadcaster. to get their way. sam harry is a household name in iceland. some haiti has developed into
a fully integrated seafood complete with operations and fishing. processing and sales. the company presents itself as a family business and celebrates its produce at an annual gathering for the local community. it's been run for the last 40 years by thorston and. he's proud of sam harris relationship with quality retailers it was one minute earlier one of his key hitler was proposed a different tone on. global brands such as test goes and car for also sell sam harris fish generating hundreds of millions of dollars each year. how do you think they view africa in their business structure. they view africa just a 2nd it's
a given cast that's it. the movie on the southwest coast of africa is a country with a small population and abundant natural resources. but a 5th of its citizens still live in poverty. yanis deficit says that's because of companies like the one he used to work for. i would say is a very classic story at the best and company of commerce phenomena. get access by any means through any source. and take all the profits out. of. the documents obtained by out zira include a company presentation which describes considerable corruption in namibia. and some harry's boss thorston was told that the company needed
a political support to succeed. particularly from a man whose name repeatedly crops up in the files bernard the south a fisheries minister. armed with the leaked documents we began our own investigation. into how corruption in namibia works. we sent johny an undercover journalist into the capital windhoek. jony posed as a representative of wealthy chinese investors. his mission to gain access to lucrative fishing rights which are allocated by the government. he sets up a meeting with a lawyer who we knew had political connections. cease in the manties name. appears in the leaked documents. they reveal his company
received over a $1000000.00 of unexplained payments from the state owned fisheries company and. he's also the president of namibia's personal lawyer. interested. like resource for sure is true and the fusion tubes. johnny asks césar to become his local consultant. you really. do want to. look at this list because. i could also get you people basically. that's like the united way here and they do it every. the right to catch fish in the maybe it is heavily regulated. the government is supposed to
allocate fishing quotas based on merit. and foreign investors need to operate alongside and the may be in company. the ultimate aim is that the profits that remain in the country i mean sure that as much as benefits. the movie ans as possible. the lawyer ceased in a mangi has set up a meeting for johnny with a prominent businessman. for drug company to knock off your deal of the. sack he could bellow runs a large no maybe in fishing company called on wallowed. he listens to johnny's proposal. we could argue 1st and then you can use what each specialist to keep running the business. for this entire expand.
they are given mr some food for thought. sakhi invites johnny to visit his company's facilities. and what. do well but you left. he suggests they go into business together. the plan is to set up a joint venture with this fishing company. which i can for. exactly soon reveals why the proposed joint venture is a guaranteed money maker he claims he can use public officials in the maybe to bypass the fishing laws we could trying to mimic human emissions and then he could also get late it may come. sakhi can then ensure that the joint venture will always catch enough fish. but persons only for the influence would ensure that the model always gets a court of. the now he doesn't say who this public official would
be. in 2012 your house was looking to break into the namibian fishing industry. he was introduced to a local deal maker times and had to clean the. thompson as the fixer. he finds right foreign companies he talks to his people and they connect and together . times in connected you hanna's to his cousin james had to actually be a local entrepreneur. james is the mastermind of the set of a car. how payments out of the. ethos of the business part of the question. james and tamzin how to kill e.p. would become central enablers in sam harris bribery scheme through their close relations to towns and father in law and maybe as minister of fisheries learned
a sour. if the power brokers were doing the deals directly themselves. they'd probably be too exposed. but when the lid is lifted you often see that the people behind the company are middlemen notorious for the corrupt deal so good. times and 1st job for sam harry was to connect to hannah's and his boss thorston with their high level political contacts. this was the big moment for them on. they're going to do it when meeting. the decision maker ossama to toss that. decision maker and not be the minister officiating as so. this meeting was about
is the toughest because the trust is so important in a big question. once you're in you're in a you don't get so easy out. for delivering this meeting the leaked documents reveal that tamzin was paid $38000.00 u.s. dollars. 3 weeks after the 1st meeting with our enabler sakhi he tells johnny he has the political connection we need. undercover reporter was led to the same man that you hannah's met at the party. the minister of fisheries. the crew of the one who spews. contribution you go fishing industry it's all it's all for you the pressure on you to go there we have got to keep it with you you can see it coming to me bill. i think we could go to
a 60 vote. this hour presides over an industry worth 3 quarters of a $1000000000.00 a year. the minister tells our reporter he should use a private number to contact him what you know thank you thanks which. also asks about a phone that would make his life easier. it's only. way you could actually you have to see. these reviews of. the 2 for the color misfired of the comic. book. was a good man to go to. the meeting with the minister is a success and sackey will soon suggest our 1st deal to get him finished the
disappointing sure. psyche has invited johnny to a trade fair organized by the national fishing corporation of namibia known as fish call it's a government run company i have my us using here right. so we have my guest today. mike new companion he's a fish course c.e.o. . thank you very much you're giving me. this. was. each year the fisheries minister assigns fish caught thousands of tons of fishing quotas which they then sell to private companies that the government wants but. they can do with them what they like to sit in the back of the thing that's.
the quote is the fish course sells can generate millions of dollars in fish sales bidding for them is meant to be highly competitive. but the cursed johnny is backed by sacchi mike says he can help. them bypass any competition. this one is a facebook makes this. possible for you helped sucky for reporters. a few days later and sackey arranges another meeting with mike probably never heard anything is. a deal is struck to guarantee fish called quotas for johnny and sac each joint venture. johnny will hand over 20 percent of the company to mike as well as hoffa 1000000 u.s. dollars. mike will then ensure the quote is
a given to johnny's joint venture with sacchi. he will make sure that you get the quote there and it's in nice interest because it took a good state interest in the operations. mikey's cain to use sakhi to hide his involvement with the wreckage of the mystery. to the prince instant it becomes to me then i'm just pissed of course who did they think it was then i'm going to all the police. to hide mike's 20 percent share in our company and the heart of a $1000000.00 payment sakhi office to launder the funch through one of his companies s p k consulting. business my
company of which i'm the only shareholder and i'm the only under present ok and that is the only reason why we're using this to put it because we don't want anybody else. asking questions that nobody will find. that you have to see it was the distance if you were on the. pier and. we showed a no maybe i'm professor of law at the evidence that up on the cover reports i had gathered about face cost c.e.o. . to see he would be checking into capacities as a private citizen and as an official and in both cases the beneficiary of that let's just. lend him and just. in 2013 you have a says he was offered to provide
a payment for fisheries minister bernard a south in return for securing fishing quotas. the request was made by thames and had to could be. called to. give the ministers 60000 you was thrown off so. i called one of the team on a sort of summit it. told me. if mr fish city wants to get paid but i'd. like to much force back. through this tunnel sent the minister was right it had been pushed at it for. a year after the payment was made minister a south appointed a new chairman of fish. while mike newcombe is the c.e.o. the man appointed to head the company with thames and cousin james had to be.
a bit genesis there had the fish course he made sure of that much or the fishing for the schools to summit even though some of the all the companies were willing to pay a higher price. for the documents reveal that some harry made payments of over a foreigner oh off 1000000 us dollars into companies owned by thames and how to kill e.p. . james becomes the chap off fishbowl the companies that are getting the money are linked to thomson. this looks very much like bribery. saberi us a very difficult explaining to. minister of fisheries. has flown to tokyo on official business our undercover
reporter johnny a ranges to meet him for dinner. many times this summer for a french restaurant. and the election is soon to take place in namibia and the minister asks johnny to help the ruling party not being a yes they think it's harmless you know. the secret students. feel. like you need to sleep fast johnny says he knows a factory that can do the job. should give him the lady was a. small piece but. it gives the minister the phone he wanted. or is there that will. improve the truth of. the time. i've chosen. johnny then explains that he
needs the minister's support to secure fishing quotas. boards. a lot of the members to use the relationship you know. yes that's really important. the minister suggests that we donate to his reelection campaign. believes he really found that's not he lists some. event asks for a 2nd donation to the ruling party nowness what. gets me back. if i miss the fact that you know you're for the initial. standard there so yes yes yes that's the. we will be using treatment for his overcoat next if that is said look for me on the side to the other tribes. yes ok i'm going to
see something. minister a south and those implicated in the leaked documents are members of namibia's ruling party the south west africa people's organization or swamp. swamp i was born out of namibia's independence struggle the party has won every election since independence in 1990. and controls all public institutions. corruption become the order of the day. the women just think about it is the moment you close your grave yet in all weeks
ringback ringback. you have a says the corruption he experienced went right to the top of the party. in 2014 he was asked for a political donation by james had achilles on behalf of the incoming president. james called me and asked us to pay him 104000 who were still there because the president needed to pay his fellow trouble members those who were so i election coming in the party 2 months left there. the emails appear to confirm that a payment equivalent to $140000.00 us dollars was made it was said to be for the party. we have no evidence of president again go bad post no knowledge of this. i called tossed initio up some area and asked if we should do it then we meet in favor green light. so we paid chamish which was meant for the past.
in part to the international trade deal that was a front for corruption but that they're going to between one paul and was. fishing for to appear for the shop. and the minister who says he knows nothing of payments to his company. since i'm not if it director running the company you didn't know that your company was receiving money from salary i challenge you that we received when i checked the banks they have you see the bank statements here. living in a war zone is a risk not worth taking for most. but for a 10 year old boy there is nowhere else to go. in the absence of his parents his grandmother dedicates herself to his upbringing. never knowing whether the next explosion. will echo one step closer to the place they call her.
the distant barking of dogs a witness documentary on al-jazeera. this is al jazeera i'm dating obligato with a check on your world headlines at least 2 people have been killed as have a gunfire continues on the streets of beni in the eastern democratic republic of congo the firing started after hundreds of people march towards a united nations peacekeeping base congolese government soldiers blocked the crowds from getting too close to the compound near the airports demonstrators have been targeting u.n. peacekeepers accusing them of failing to protect them from attacks by rebel groups . syrian government air strikes have killed at least 14 civilians in the province markets in moderate to nominate city were reportedly targeted 20 others have been

in tokyo the discussion about our payment to the namibian minister of fisheries continues. is for the legal system to listen to me at least and true to a friend's truth to actually be some truth just to make you feel stupid. to consciously mean. when you get them and we think if we do cut we could be pretty quick to. judge a bench sent to find. out if you don't stay focused on. the minister's suddenly changes his mind instead of going to his account he wants the money sent to seche could dela. the enabler who introduced us to him in the
only legal system. she really knew the strength of most likely. a 2nd thing i want to know that. i'd. say the 1st that the city should be i guess they. need to look at the ground. where are you. in. the following day the fisheries minister meets johnny again he wants to make sure our political donation remains in and. people are looking actually connected. but you. know there's nothing. especially if. it's a new phenomenon that the baby must be. if it's supposed to the country that's.
a few feet deep easy. just one. we can leak if. there's one of us who is certain feats. in 25 teens yanis claims of sam harry would deepening vettori as to the swapo party leadership. they invited james and tamzin had to kill e.p. on a trip to iceland to meet with sam harry see foreston mahboub woodson. accompanying them was a rising star in the party psyche shang gala. at the time a close advisor to the president he went on to become the minister of justice.
how do you do the level of corruption going on in the maybe and now what can be done by your office to try to stop them but thank you for asking that i have been at the forefront of reforming the fishing industry so we have all the legislation in place. and what we've picked up is that is there are levels of corruption very miniscule it's not really an issue what worried about. in 2014 shang gala was the architect of an even bolder attempt by sam harry to increase its access to fish in africa. that year angola and namibia signed an international agreement a deal allowing i mean golan company rights to namibia and fishing quotas. it was
supposed to be beneficial for both nominee and uncle last but the 2 motivation was that the sharks are found the way to x.x. for us. we have no evidence that angola ministers were involved in any wrongdoing. the quota was officially awarded to a company called nanga maher pesca. you have a says it was a front company controlled by the namibian sharks. but by that they're going to between now call a number was to get fishing for dynamic here for the sharks. a few months after nanga mark pascoe was awarded the fishing quota a confidential meeting took place at sam harris headquarters in iceland james and tamzin had to kill e.p. with their. but the man who led the namibian delegation was sakhi shang gala.
sakhi gave a presentation to thoughts than the boss of sam harry. outlined how some harry could buy the quotas from langham are pesca. they have to move fast. the opportunity we have is not available to everyone he wrote we need to move before everyone wakes up. according to your highness it was sackings political connections that made the deal happen. at all no. more politic us. to get a bilateral agreement like that in place you need their big political support. i spoke to you have a stephens he said when he was operating in the media corruption was rife and he had to pay what he calls bribes to politically well connected individuals to obtain
access to fishing quote there's sound familiar to you. it was actually corrupt before we came in you had a lot of people who understood that what i have officially right i can get rich quick and soon after the trade deal was signed as sam harry born angle miles quota they paid mangum are $2200000.00 u.s. dollars over 4 years well below the market rate but they transferred a further $4000000.00 to a dubai company $200.00 vala. owned by fish cause chairman james how did. the money. back out of the buy was for james to distribute further like to the minister of fish for the sharks and also possibly to the big politicians in the country. invoices for almost all of the payments that
sam harry made to james and tamzin had a cool e.p. describe the services they provided as a consultancy. this use of the word consultancy is typical in bribery tales. given that there's a very strong evidence bribery occurred. and that the bribes but channeled through a myriad of mysterious entities offshore companies and trusts. i think there are 4 grounds to investigate saberi and his associates for money laundering. the documents also appear to suggest the shang galah has been receiving money for securing the angolan deal for sam harry. you know one of the well connected political individuals that you have and a stephens and said he paid with you i haven't received payment from him.
maybe he has evidence to that he should prove it in asia. in the should be investigated. of the $2200000.00 that sam harry paid to nanga mom pesca. pascoe transferred 3 quarters of a $1000000.00 to a company called auto faecal logistics. shortly afterwards large payments were transferred to 2 companies that shange and james own. one a lair investments received $330000.00. the other received $170000.00. you and your business partner james had a clue own 2 companies that received hundreds of thousands of dollars from companies that are getting paid by sam harris and that is not true i don't have no recollection of man coming from any relationship with some heritage.
yet the documents we obtained showed a money trail from sam harry to the company shang gala own with james had a cool e.p. . about investments only a is a company i own received $300000.00 from companies that have received large payments from the angle model is paid by sam harris since since i'm not in if a director running the company i wouldn't know but the audit is there why are you didn't know that your company was receiving money from sam every subsequent well i challenge you that we received many. very expensive easy but bank statements here. i showed the minister evidence of one of those payments $17000.00 paid from a fee cut into a layer. what did that lead do for us i think which is why they're giving you what
look i would put give evidence put me before a court of law. me before investigating officer and the auditor is there and then the answer and then we finished so you are just consume the payments from off of it into a lab they have nothing to do with summer and my answer to you is mr your 100 stiff times does not cover a simple question the payment amounts are of equal to a layout like the un is what that is my hopes of equal to or less my and for what i listen when i went to the more informed development commission. i handed over all powers to run all my entities and i handed it over to people and you don't see any benefit of that well but what i'm saying is only here is the company run not by me but by mr too could be paid for your benefit i told her well look what do you see any benefit from their company. you take shares from that company and you take
dividends from that company we haven't declared evidence of the wow that's 5 and 5 . and they obviously famous for side 8 to noncom mater they give their best regards and said thank you for the payments including psyche james sometimes. well you see you have you totally believe mr honest and therefore it is difficult for me to convince you otherwise. james have to kill e.p. and psyche sharon gallo broke the rule according to an expert who view dollar evidence they are both official. government. it appears that they are obvious to send all. the stuff to shmooze do you know they getting paid in the private capacities. that's unique there's no doubt about that.
my mom our undercover team had met the fisheries minister in tokyo now they were back in namibia our neighbor sacchi could della he's on the phone to johnny sack he had just met the minister on a decide how. hard. he. was going in these days that he meaning. we discussed it. expressed. ok we won't want to the 75 thought. ok so for the full measure of the minister need to be definitely full because it we know where this is this is in the free world for the future business of the true long in the real right. absolutely. with the great relationship.
you just. experienced. this. is what it is we. must. move. with the $200000.00 figure agreed out on the cover of puerto meet sacchi to finalize details. exactly i want to ask you about a 100000000 stuff. sakhi explains how they intend to keep the transfer didn't. they ask for the money to be placed in a trust account managed by the president's personal lawyer see sentiment. you were taken from the south. and then you want to give it to the minister occasion
and the minister will listen you know whatever 21 is that we thank you for being brought to you. and all that should flow out. to hide the true beneficiary of the money sakhi constructs us to use a fake payment reference number. the money will now appear to be an investment in a local housing development run by a company called the investments. when you took you to get it right is this not the same way it is why. when the pain when these may be funky maybe there are things that since a good. economy injured many more than too much pride or thought just in. the midst there were usually managed. difficult i have friends
i know you took me for saying that and then on the phone listen up and it was like oh yeah so now it's well we it's been 3 since i started out with a reference number. 2 s 234 and 8 and the money in the car. will slip in a hospital then he said that not just me but for us it was the low and then there was the 5 of. them bondo investments the company being used to homemade our $200000.00 payment to the minister owns this development called ocean view. our undercover reporter visited the sales agent. the plan is for the payment to be lost amongst the investment in construction. so it won't be flagged as a suspect to bribe. what you know about. best interests and i know that
trust is key to the names of. the sales page and does indeed know sacchi could bella a trustee of in bondo investments. she's sackings wife. that's obviously hiding the origin of the money and i can feel them with this nation of money that money laundering. by the see those friends criminal oh you go to prison for that. i guess i've done this before you get true you know you . were doing with this with. her daughter and ministers so telling their arrangement. that's why the minister thought william statement. that's wrong is that the drive it down can reach the minister not on a. consensus of interest or so i'm sure that it's reached them in. johny them visits the
last cease in a mangi to confirm the money will make it to minister south. the money that we want to give to the minister b. but it would translate i'm going. to be speaking to people you. see so want us to be discreet. to stick to it no clue little bit of good and the. people of the media to believe in what i believe i had you know also do not want to be faulty that i am not specifying and while slow. i can give insight you can be found with. yes he has been discussed. kino i will try to. fill it with relationship good business. ceases account may have been used to launder funds before. the
documents indicate that a total of $1200000.00 us dollars were deposited in ceases trust by the state run company fish call after james had to kill e.p. became its chairman. with a plan to launder the bribe in place joint meets minister south for a final dinner. and one to. send you the painting then we would do we've say such and such but yeah is that ok to do if you're the sort that. is occurring to $200000.00 a year just. to see really how we all be careful. we're going to do i am not really a true crew i feel good but in. money laundering he that's what it was all about.
this right. caesar's court these are often. there would be released if i speak to. you like in the restroom. there is a law and i think that you know i mean the. minister sal didn't reply to our request for an interview. let's find out now about the initiatives and challenges that being faced in namibia. he was busy attending a conference on the importance of transparency in fishing are you the ones who said yes he just. said that if you're. winners. this is willing to. hear you're talking about accepting bribery or up to $200000.00
from way from chinese investors no no no no no i have to get this i need to get more information on this you know a kind of cult something that is nice to. have been an intro connection to somebody . no no no you haven't but i know they have fishing you know me from. yuma to the sea i was on a bit and they came to the meeting and to explain the source we felt a bit sick and that it was you know about all the payments that somebody has been paying to actually look at them you know nothing about the nothing about what about the payments they're made to to a company and to buy which is owned by james how can you be don't know i don't know really i just i don't know don't know anything about i don't know in the u.s. you're here today to speak about transparency what's the matter video talking about money laundering and i'm extending runs. what i just i am not involved in money
