4:33 am
in tokyo the discussion about our payment to the namibian minister of fisheries continues. is for illegal immigration and usually for me at least in truth too often truth to actually be some truth just to make you feel stupid. to consciously mean. when you get very weak and we think if we could cut we could do pretty quick said. ben so in the film. i was 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 when we are only doing so so that. she really knew the
4:34 am

4:35 am
shoot we can leak if. there's an obvious issue some feats. in 2039 s. claims that 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 thorston 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.
4:36 am
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 well you know 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 golden company rights to namibian fishing quotas. it was
4:37 am
supposed to be beneficial for both nominee and uncle last but the 2 motivation was that the shares 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 letter agreement between one caller 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 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.
4:38 am
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 hannahs 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
4:39 am
obtain access to fishing quote that sound familiar to you. it was actually corrupt before we came in you had a lot of people who understood that what i have official right i can get rich quick . soon after the trade deal was signed assam harry born 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 how did. the money. bank of gentian to buy was for james to distribute further like to the minister of fish. and also possibly to the vicar to politicians in the company. even voices for almost all of the payments that sam
4:40 am
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 bribe retail is. it 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 till . 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. steffensen said he paid with you i haven't received payment from him. maybe he has evidence to that he should prove it
4:41 am
and 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 faecal logistics. shortly afterwards large payments were transferred to 2 companies that shango 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 were getting paid by sam harris and that is not true i don't have no recollection of money coming from any relationship with some harry.
4:42 am
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 a 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 some 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 loan. what did that lead do philosophy which is why getting a look i would put give evidence put me before
4:43 am
a court of law put me before an investigating officer and the audit is there and then the onset and then we finished so you are just consumed with the payments from off of it into a lab they have nothing to do with somehow my answer to you is this to you 100 stiff times got some kind of simple question that i want my house or a vehicle to lay out like the others what that might help somebody come to live my and see what i listen when i went to the more informed development commission. i handed over all the 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 and but by mr too could be paid for your benefit i told well look what do you say anything if it from the 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 have received the payments for side 8 to none
4:44 am
commodity they have the best regards and said thank you for the payments including psyche james sometimes. well you see you have you totally believe mr you 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 view dollar evidence they are both official so. it appears that they are obvious that sending. the stop issues do you know they're getting paid in the private capacities. that's unique there's no doubt about. the. bomb our undercover team had met the fisheries minister in tokyo
4:45 am
now they were back in namibia our neighbor sakit della he's on the phone to johnny sack he had just met the minister bernard a sour. taste are you. think you're. going to mislead is that a meeting we discussed that didn't express. ok we were good out why are the 75 thought. ok so for the donation the minister needed the definitely for the most in the doing no with assistance of the free world for the fishing business of the to all the right of center there's no good reason to think the relationship with him in the 1st. experience of you show us.
4:46 am
what it. will look i'm obsessed. with the $200000.00 figure agreed on the cover of puerto meet sacchi to find a life details. exactly i want to ask you about the payments and it must stop. there. 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 sentimental. you would take it from the south. and then you would give it to the minister
4:47 am
occasion and the minister would listen you know you want everybody to want to sleep with 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. the money will now appear to be an investment in a local housing development run by a company called the investments. we need to keep it right is this the same way it is why when the babies may be fun to meet with their friends that seems like a good. economy to many. they actually. don't use. them is there or usually manage. it because they have parental income to me photo so you then and there on the phone list and. it was like that so now it's
4:48 am
one week it's been 3 since i started out with a reference number. 2 is 234 and they think the money that they have the car. slid in they are asking me said it not just me but for interest development and the rest of 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 and. 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 suspected brawl i. want. you know about. best interests and i know that trust is the names of. the sales page and does
4:49 am
indeed know sacchi could ella a trustee of in bondo investments. she's sackings wife. that's obviously hiding the audit you know of the money and i can feel how to make this nation of money that money laundering. by the sea those friends criminal oh well you go to prison for that. i guess i've done this before you get true no. we didn't we didn't this week. and the minister is ok let's arrange when. it's i mean it's appalling statement. that's true is that the trying to count one can reach the minutes that not only. once it's into the circle i'm sure that it's reached the minutes.
4:50 am
johnnie them visits the lawyers cease in a month 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 if you're going. to be speaking to people in the future. you see so want us to be discrete. if you stick to it and i hope you get a little bit of it good and then the. other people of you know me to be better than what my we've had gotten and i can also do what i want to be faulty that is i am not specifying one smoke. i can give insight you can. find with me and so i do yes we haven't discussed going to chemo i will try to. fill it with relationships good business. ceases account may have been used to launder funds before. the documents indicate that
4:51 am
a total of $1200000.00 u.s. dollars were deposited in ceases trust by the state wrong 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 then we would do we've. got here is that ok do we feel this or that that. is occurring to $200000.00 a year. to syria we'll all be careful. we're going to do fine are true it true it's true of the unit but it. took money longer than the bible but it was all over. this way. caesar's courtney's roughly.
4:52 am
