as to an alternative of the world today we have to rethink pretty much everything thank you for talking to al-jazeera. programs to inspire you on al-jazeera. i'm home i had seen in doha the top stories on al-jazeera u.s. house democrats have released a report laying out the case for the impeachment of donald trump and says the president used his powers to get ukraine to help him with the 2020 lection the white house has called the report's a one sided sham but the chairman of the highest intelligence committee adam schiff says it shows trump trying to see pressure ukraine's leader this report chronicles a scheme by the president i'd states to coerce an ally ukraine that is at war with an adversary russia into doing the pleasure of the president's political dirty work
it involves a scheme in which donald trump withheld official acts a white house meeting as well as hundreds of millions of dollars of needed military assistance in order to compel that power to deliver to investigations that he believed would assist his reelection campaign re criteria as the speaker laid out to this country to move what is going to happen this week those 3. issues she laid have failed each one there's nothing to tell and there's nothing overwhelming and the only bipartisan we have vote we have had in this house is not to move forward with impeachment inquiry. u.s. is threatening sanctions against senior chinese communists because of their treatments of we the muslims of representatives has passed a bill calling on president anwar trump to condemn abuses against the minority
group it urges the closure of detention camps in the northwestern region of sudan and it names members of seen john's communist party who washington says are responsible for peace is what china has or is the u.s. to stop the bill from becoming law saying it's a domestic issue brain has more on china's reaction on ports china's next steps will be. well a short time ago we did hear from the foreign ministry in beijing on wednesday morning not surprisingly they have spoken out very strongly against this bill warning the united states not to interfere in china's internal affairs and i'm calling on congress to basically correct its mistake in their words and not to allow this bill to become law as to what china does next well there are a number of options at its disposal they can carry out all sorts of sanctions against u.s. officials in china or they could restrict their travel in china now when president
trump signed into law the hong kong democracy human rights act last week we saw just a few days later china barring u.s. warships from docking here in hong kong it also announced it would sanction a number of u.s. n.g.o.s here in hong kong but it hasn't really special vied what more it can do but there is no doubt that what you're looking at here is what in many ways a cold war looks like and this is not the beginning this is not the end we are in the middle of a deepening cold war between these 2 superpowers. the 70th anniversary of nato has turned into a tense war of words the u.s. and french president sawyer on several points including metals roll and the return of ice or fighters mccraw also attack turkey over its military operations in syria the international criminal court's chief prosecutor is renewing efforts to open a formal investigation into war crimes in afghanistan the courts will hear the
appeal on wednesday after the request was rejected earlier this year prosecutor fatou bensouda says the afghan governments the taliban and the united states all face accusations of abuse alleged have been committed since 2003 the world health organization says some of those worsening measles outbreak has set back global efforts to eliminate the disease 60 people have died since the epidemic started in mid october many of them children under 4 most more cases are being reported every hour with more than $4000.00 people infected in a population of just 200000 people and police in the philippines say the number of people known to have died in typhoon kemarre has risen soon 11 there are concerns wherever that number could rise as officials receive reports from affected areas was the headline stay stay with us.
this film takes you inside a multimillion dollar corruption scandal. it's a minister who wants to get paid i'm sure you pay him. much and we believe he can reach out i guess if you do certain people such as. the minister but whatever $1.00 to $1.00 just. how do. we reveal how an icelandic company is plundering africa's resources going to get us to some of the flow that are going to help to. fibroid and its politicians utilities have said look before you get on the side of the average those. people
who. now do serious investigative unit obtains a cache of confidential documents from wiki leaks this is because russian scheme goes to the highest level in namibia. but buying from the people in truth 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 perceived 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 listen to. him and just think about people is the moment you're too stupid if you're in all
weeds. for 5 years you have a steffensen worked for 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. was 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 e-mail spreadsheet photographs and other company data. to the documents form a blueprint of how far one company still resources from african nations. they are just dropping the resource 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 syria's investigative unit and by sloan's national broadcaster. somebody. to get their way. sam harry is a household name in iceland. some haiti has developed into
a fully integrated seafood complete with operations of fishing on 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 mom and. he's proud of sam harris relationship with quality retailers it was one minute earlier winner of his career had little more for a 1st rate of return 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 sec continental given casts that's it. 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 the companies like the one he used to work full. 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 of. the documents obtained by out zira concluded companies presentation which describes considerable corruption in namibia. and some harries boss thorston was told of the company needed a political support to succeed. particularly from
a man whose name repeatedly crops up in the files bernard the south the 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 go but look at this list if. i could also get you people because. 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 cease in a mangi has set up a meeting for johnny with a prominent businessman. for drug company to more coffee or tea. sacchi could bella runs a large new maybe in fishing company called on wallowed. he listens to johnny's proposal. we could argue 1st and then you can use what each specialty 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 over here that. he suggests they go into business together. the plan is to set up a joint venture with his 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 try and so many human limitations and then he could also get late in the. sacchi can then ensure that the joint venture will always catch enough fish. but persons only for the influence pretty sure that the model always gets a court that. if and now he doesn't say who this public official would
be. in 2012 you have us was looking to break into the namibian fishing industry. he was introduced to a local deal maker townsend had to be. thomson 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. ethos the business part of the productions can. james and tamzin how to kill e.p. would become central enablers in sam harris bribery scheme through their close relations to townsend father in law and maybe as minister of fisheries learned to
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 or middlemen notorious for corrupt deals. times and 1st job to sam harry was to connect your hand s. and his boss the austin with their high level political contacts. this was a big moment for them on. their bid to make it with meeting. the decision maker dos i'm going to toss that. decision maker and not be the mr fish it s. up. based 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 enablers sakhi he tells johnny he has the political connection we need. on the cover of porter was led to the same man that you hannah's met at the party. the minister of fisheries. the crew on board who spews. contribution you go fishing industry it's all just all through the president should you go there you have the cookie that it will be your you because it comes to money bill. going to cook opportunities to be
both. going to miss out 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 that's. also asks about a phone that would make his life easier. it's only. way you could i assure you that publicity. could this release of. the 2 for the cult 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 to finish the
disappointing show. 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 nigam poignant he's a fish course c.e.o. . thank you very much you're giving me this. each year the fisheries minister assigns fish call thousands of tons of fishing quotas which they then sell to private companies that the government once funds back so they can do with what they like to sit in the market 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. it. possible for you help sucky before reporters. a few days later sakhi arranges another meeting with mike however i think 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 us 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 by the way to hell you could say it's interesting to know the issues. my kids came to use sakhi to hide his involvement with 2003 mr. prince in the senate then becomes to me then i'm just stuck to that they think it was then i'm going to go 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 function through one of his companies s p k consulting. business my
company of the time the only several that and i'm the only american enterprise that ok then that is the only reason why are we using this to put it because we don't want anybody else. asking questions that nobody will find. then you have to see what was the distance if you were on the. pier and. we showed and then maybe i'm professor of law at the evidence that up on the cover reports i had gathered about facing. a c o he would be checking into capacities as a private citizen and as an official and in both cases the beneficiary of that that's just. lent him in. 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. asked to. give the minister 60000 you was thrown out. i called one of the team on a sort of some note it. told me. if mr fish city wants to get paid i'm. going to most sports but cost. the country sent the minister was right it had been presented. a year after the payment was made minister to 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 generous as i had the fish course he made sure of that much for the fishing for the schools to summit even though some of the other companies were willing to pay a higher price. for the documents reveal that some harry made payments of over 4 and a oh if 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 plus a very difficult explaining to. the minister of fisheries than it is sour has flown to tokyo on official business
our undercover reporter johnny a range is to meet him for dinner. many times this summer for the french restaurant . and the election is soon to take place in namibia and the minister asks johnny to help the ruling party not being on your feet i think it's just harder to get out of the frig students. of the work you need but simply class johnny says he knows a factory that can do the job. i'm sure you know the lady was a. small piece of. it gives the minister the phone he wanted. or is there that will. improve the truth of. the truth. your son. john and then explains that he needs the
minister's support to secure fishing quotas. boards. a lot of the members to use the relationship you have no. matter your health yes that's really what. the minister suggests that we donate to his reelection campaign. speech he really felt that's not he lists some people. even asks for a 2nd donation to the ruling party known as swap i. can sneak back in if i'm going to the back up of your for the initial. standard there so yes yes yes that's the. we were using treatment for his overcoat krish next given to said look he beat me on the side to the other tribes. yes
ok now i'm going to see something. minister a south and those implicated in the leaked documents are members of namibia's ruling party a south west africa people's organization all swapped. swapo was born out of namibia's independence struggle the party has won every election since independence in 1990. 1 controls or public institutions. corruption become the want of. the woman to speak about it is the moment you close your grave yet in all weeks
ringback 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 why james had achilles on behalf of the incoming president again job. james called me and asked us to pay him 140000 you were still there because the president needed to pay his fellow trouble members this was a lection coming in the party 2 months left there. the emails appeared 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 game go had personal knowledge of this. cycle tossed in this area and asked if we should do it then we meet in favor of green light. so we paid chamish which was meant for the president.
in part to the international trade deal that was a front for corruption by that they're going to between one paul and via walsh to get fishing for dynamic here for the sharks. and the minister who says he knows nothing of payments to his company. to some not if it director of running the company you didn't know that your company was receiving money from salary i challenge you that we received when i show you the banks they have you see the bank statements here. i. didn't embryos to communist leaders. age old philosophies and the rule of order remain central to the world's oldest living civilization. in the 1st of a 2 part series the big picture charts how a history spanning 5000 years shaped china's world in the industrialized world.
the china complex part one on al-jazeera. seen in doha with the top stories on al-jazeera u.s. house democrats have released a report laying out the case for the impeachment of donald trump it says the president used his powers to get ukraine to help him with the 2020 lection the white house has called the report's a one sided sham i do joe castro has more from capitol hill. the house intelligence committee has been giving its stamp of approval on this report and now it is now passing that report on to the judiciary committee which is significant because it is the judiciary committee that will draft articles of impeachment basically these
are the charges that trump would face once this goes to a trial in the senate. the u.s. house of representatives has passed a bill demanding sanctions on senior chinese officials over the treatment of the weaker muslim minority the legislation also calls for the quarter of detention camps in the siege on region and that names members of seen junks communist party who say washington who washington says are responsible for abuses china has condemned the bill and has the knights the allegations the 70th anniversary of nato has turned into a tense war of words the u.s. and french presidents argued on several points including nato israel and the return of ice or fighters the international criminal court's chief prosecutor is renewing efforts to open a formal investigation into war crimes in afghanistan the courts will hear the appeal on wednesday after the request was rejected earlier this year prosecutor facts have been sued us says the afghan government's the taliban and the united
states all face accusations of abuses alleged to have been committed since 2003 the number of people known to have died in typhoon community in the philippines has risen to 11 there are concerns whoever that number could rise as officials continue to receive reports from affected areas the typhoon made landfall on monday in the eastern part of the country and the world health organization says some of those worsening measles outbreak has set back global efforts to eliminate this is ease 60 people have died since the epidemic started in mid october many of those children under the age of 4 more cases are being reported every hour with more than $4000.00 people affected in a population of just $200000.00 well that's up to date snaps back to al-jazeera assignations.
in tokyo. the discussion about our payment to the namibian minister of fisheries continues. is. the issue here for me at least and true too often true to say we are going to some true history if it's. going. to come to you sooner. than you get through it and we think if we could cut we could do pretty quick say it. soon 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 illegal since. she really knew the strength of those laws in. a separate country i want to marry that. city 1st that the city should be yeah yeah so you. need to do and. what are you. going to do. the following day the fisheries minister meets johnny again he wants to make sure our political donation remains hidden by. people who feel that you can do. what you are. claiming must shift that it's annoying money monthly baby mommy must be that. something
just supports the country. a few feet deep easy. to. we believe we can say this i know why this issue certain feats. in 2039 s. claims that sam harry what deepening vettori is 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 c. foreston mahboub woodson. accompanying them was a rising star in the party psyche shang gala. at the time a close adviser 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 to 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 away but. in 2014 shang gallo 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 my goal in company rights to namibian fishing quotas. it was
supposed to be beneficial for both numb and beyond. but the 2 motivation was that the sharks i 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 mar pesca. you have a says it was a front company controlled by the namibian sharks. by that they're going to between now call a number or to get fishing for their none of your for the sharks. a few months after nanga mark pascoe was awarded the fishing quota a confidential meeting took place at sam harry's 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 politics. 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 called 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. soon after the trade deal was signed assam harry borg mangum us 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 vala. owned by fish cause chairman james had. the money. bank of gentian to buy was for james to distribute further like to the minister of fish or the sharks and also possibly to the vicar because politicians in the country. need 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 very strong evidence bribery occurred. and that the bribes but channeled through a myriad 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 yeah and a steffensen 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 ma pesca. pascoe transferred 3 quarters of a $1000000.00 to a company called faecal logistics. shortly afterwards large payments were transferred to 2 companies that shank and james own. one alair investments received $330000.00. the other received $170000.00. you and your business partner james have a clue own 2 companies that have 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 harry.
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 noncom are there 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 layer 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 out 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 mauser a week or 2 and they act like the un is what i am i hope somebody comes to laugh my and. listen when i went to the reform 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 a company run not by me but by mr too could be paid for your benefit i told her well look what do you say anything if it 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 in 5. and they obviously famous for size 8 to none commodity 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 epeat and psyche sharon gallo broke the rule according to an expert who view dollar evidence they are both officials of. government. it appears that they are obvious descendant almost but in the stop wish list do you know they getting paid in the private capacities. that's unique there's no doubt about that.
mom. on the cover team had met the fisheries minister in tokyo now they were back in namibia our neighbor said he could della he's on the phone to johnny sack he had just met the minister on a decide how. hard. was it in these days that he meaning. we discussed it. expressed. ok we want to walk to the $75.00 thought. ok so for the full measure of the minister need to be definitely full because it we know where this is this is the framework for the future business. to all of the right absolutely. with the great relationship.
you must. experience. this. is what it is. best this. move. with the $200000.00 figure agreed out on the cover of puerto meet sacchi to find a life details. exactly i want to ask you about the payments on it nonstop. 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 cinema and. you would take it from the south. and then you want to give it to the minister
occasion and the minister or the listener or whatever but into what used to be thank you for being with rugby. and all that should flow out. to hide the true beneficiary of the money sakhi constructs us to use a fake payment reference number and 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 the bank is just not the same way it is why. when they've been with us and me we thank you maybe there are things that since they did. and we've gotten into many what they actually. thought you saw in. their midst there were usually managed. difficult they have friends and interviewed me for saying that and they're on the
phone listening up and it was like oh yeah so now it's one it's been 3 since i started out with a reference number. the old 2 s 234 and 8 and the money that they have the car. slid in they are asking me said that not just me but for years it was the lower mainland and there was this one. i'm bondo investments the company being used to homemade our $200000.00 payment to the minister owns this development called ocean view. out on the cover of puerto 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 suspected brawl i. want to know about. it just yet i know the
test is. the sales page and does indeed know sacchi could dela a trustee of in bondo investments. she's sackings wife. that's obviously hiding the origin of the money and i do feel to make this nation of money that money laundering. by the see those friends criminal oh well you go to prison for that. i guess i've done this before you know it will get true no you. we're dealing with this with. water and ministers so telling their range when. it's i mean it's appalling statement. that's wrong is that the drive it down can reach the minister not on a. consensus into the circle i'm sure that it's reached them in. johnny them visits the
lawyer cease in a mangi to confirm the money will make it to minister a south. the money that we want to give to the minister b. but it would translate if you're going to. be speaking to people in the future. see so want us to be discreet. to stick to it no clue little bit of good in the. people of you know me to be buried in what i would have gotten i know also do not want to be faulty that is i understand why while smoking. i can give insight you can. found with me yes we have been discussing. chemo outside of the. village relationship just. ceases account may have been used to launder funds before. the
documents indicate that a total of $1200000.00 u.s. 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 johnny meets minister south for a final dinner. and one to. send you the painting that we've been doing we've got and such but yeah is that ok to do if you're the sort that. is occurring to $200000.00 a year. to see really how we all be careful. we're going to do i am not really a true crew of the unit but in. money laundering he that's what it was all about.
this right. caesar's court is roughly. it would be released if i speak to. you like in the rest room. where they think that you know i mean the. world. minister sowed didn't reply to our request for an interview. let's find out now about the initiatives and challenges at 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. severe of your. manners to. the center. and here you are 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 there they came to the meeting. and to explain the sounds we felt i would say 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 do 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 i don't know anything about i don't know in the us you're here today to speak about transparency puts their national media going about money laundering and i'm extending runs. it's what i miss that i am not involved in
