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 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 to the source. and take all the profits out. of. the documents obtained by out zira include a company presentation which describes considerable corruption in the maybe. some harry's boss thorston was told that the company needed
9:11 am
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
9:12 am
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 cæsar to become his local consultant. guy 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
9:13 am
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 you want each specialty to keep running the business. for this entire expand.
9:14 am
they are given mr some food for thought. sakhi invites johnny to visit his company's facilities. and what. do won't you that. 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 try and so many human limitations and then he could also believe in the. sacchi can then ensure that the joint venture will always catch enough fish. but person is only for the influence pretty sure that the model always get the core of. the now he doesn't say who this
9:15 am
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 peter. thompson as the fixer. he finds right foreign companies he talks to his people and they connect and together. times and connected your hands to his cousin james how to kill e.p. 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 put options can. james and tamzin have 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 to
9:16 am
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 corrupt deals so good. times and so 1st job to sam harry was to connect your hand s. and his boss the austin with their high level political contact. this was the big moment for them on. their bit to make it with meeting. the decision maker osama to toss the. decision maker and not be the minister of fishing and so. this meeting was about is the toughest because the
9:17 am
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. who want the one who spews the contribution you go fishing industry it's all it's all for you the president should you go and then we have the cookie that it was really because it comes to me bill. we could go to
9:18 am
a 60 vote. this 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 actually you got to see. this when you saw. the 2 for the color misfire the famous comic. book. was great the man to. the meeting with the minister is a success and sackey will soon suggest our 1st deal to get him to finish the

9:20 am
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 links so this is it. possible for you help sucky for reporters. a few days later sakhi arranges another meeting with mike how he's 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 us dollars.
9:21 am
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 is that it's interesting about the issues. my kids came to use sakhi to hide his involvement was going to be missed. due to the prince in the sentence becomes to me then i'm just stuck to that they think it was then i'm going to call the police. to hide mike's 20 percent share in our company and the hof a $1000000.00 payment sakhi office to launder the function through one of his companies s p k consulting. business my
9:22 am
company of the time the only settled and i'm the only american ship was 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 set out 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 that's just. lent him in. in 2013 you have a says he was offered to provide
9:23 am
a payment for fisheries minister bernard a south in return for securing fishing quotas. the request was made by thames and had to quickly be. called and asked to. give the minister 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 most for costs. going to council sent the minister was right it had been presented. 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.
9:24 am
a bit generous as i 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

9:29 am
in part to the international trade deal that was a front for corruption to buy that they're going to between one point and was to get fishing for the unknown would be afforded a shot. and the minister who says he knows nothing of payments to his company. to some not if it director of running the company didn't know that your company was receiving money from sam every i challenge you that we received when i checked the banks they have you see the bank statements here. from the al-jazeera in london broke us into 2 special guests in conversation who would have still. been in a rich country we use hunger as a weapon i'm from to uninterrupted it's much more difficult to be left for england to be right wing when people think they are really right and ken loach meets edward lee we are have to be subversive if you don't have

9:33 am
in tokyo the discussion about our payment to the namibian minister of fisheries continues. is for the few people to really listen to me at least in truth too often truth to actually meet some true history. if it's. going. to come to you sooner. than you carry and we think if we keep close up we could do pretty well said. each bench so in the face of. 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
9:34 am
who introduced us to him in the our legal system when. she really knew the strength of those like you. i say something i want to marry that. city 1st that the city should be yeah yeah so you. need to go and look around. 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 but. people are looking at that so you get. what you are. coming. if you have to this is news money number the baby must be. if it's supposed to the country that's. a few feet deep easy.
9:35 am
just one. we believe we can play the sound of ice if the sun 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 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.
9:36 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 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 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 namibia and fishing quotas. it was
9:37 am
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 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 was to get fishing for them 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 how to kill e.p. were there. but the man who led the namibian delegation was sakhi shang gala.
9:38 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 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
9:39 am
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 lange to mark $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 had. the money. to the bank of gentian to 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. the invoices for almost all of the payments
9:40 am
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 channel through a myriad mysterious entities offshore companies and trusts. i think there are 4 grounds to investigate saberi and his associates for money or. the documents also appear to suggest that shange 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 stephens and said he paid with you i haven't received payment from him.
9:41 am
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 auto 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 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 harry.
9:42 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 angle model is paid by sam harris since since i'm not and if it 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 of the banks that have you see the 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
9:43 am
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 stefanski got some very simple question the payment amounts are of equal to and they are like the and what were the days of my hopes of equal to or less my and one day listen when i went to the more formal 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 do you think
9:44 am
dividends from that company we haven't declared evidence of the wow that's 5 in 5. and they obviously famous for side a to numb commodity they gave 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 had to kill e.p. 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 to send all wrongs to the stop the most new the getting. into private capus these. bets you need there's no doubt about that.
9:45 am
mom out 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 to 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 free room for the future business. to all the real right absolutely. with the great relationship with him in
9:46 am
this. experience. in this. case we. must. move. with the $200000.00 figure agreed on the cover of porter meat sakhi to finalize details. exactly i want to ask you about a 100 more 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 cece in a mansion. you were taken from the south. and then you
9:47 am
want to give it to the minister occasion and a minister who lets you know where they were going to where you stood with thank you for being with rugby. and all that shit flew 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 babies may be funky maybe there are things that since a good. economy too many want their too much pride just in. their midst there were usually managed. difficult they have friends in
9:48 am
interview we follow them and they're on the phone list and. it was like yeah so now that's why we it's been 3 since i started out with a reference number. the old 2 s 234 and they get them the money they get the car. to slip in they ask him then he says that not just me but for his interest to go up and then and 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 a porter 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 bribe. want to know about. it just yet i know the
9:49 am
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 that with this nation of money that money laundering. by the see those friends criminal or you go to prison for that. i guess that's before you even get true you know you. we're dealing with this with you know that's what they are and the ministers all tailor their arrangement. that's why the minister thought was interesting to me. 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
9:50 am
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 and i hope you get a clue there's a good in the. people of the me too people you know what i mean if i had gotten i'd know also didn't want to be voting patterns either and i specified once and i would go see. the minutes i. found with 2 years that he had been discussing going to chemo at the time of the relationship just. ceases account may have been used to launder funds before. the
9:51 am
