jabs at this point today the president was celebrating the $5000000.00 nations and he says that in 90 days the whole population will be inoculated the problem is that you need 80 percent of inoculation for herd immunity to kick in and what we're seeing here is exactly the opposite we're seeing huge amounts of people getting infected not so much the elderly who were the 1st ones to be in office but younger patients who are now in critical care units in hospitals where there are no more beds available anymore we were at a hospital earlier today and we saw that for ourselves even though chile has increased the number of critical care beds from a 1000 to more than 3000 in the last year alone but there aren't enough nurses and of doctors they are exhausted and the patients just keep coming in and going in one chilean is dying now approximately every 15 minutes now from 19 so it's a very serious situation. still in america after days of. street

37 journalists have been arrested of whom 19 remain in arbitrary detention at least 5 deaths in custody have occurred in recent weeks and at least 2 victims bodies have shown signs of severe physical abuse indicating that they were tortured we are deeply disturbed that the crackdown continues to intensify and we again call on the military to stop killing and detaining protest. protesters have stormed the presidential palace in yemen's southern city of aden angry about poor living conditions and unpaid salaries witnesses told our jazeera that officials from the un bags government fled does hundreds of people forced their way in security guards loyal to the u.a.e. backed some transitional council were stationed there but didn't try to stop the demonstrators who have now left the powers of government on motorcycles have attacked

be used to. al-jazeera as investigative unit has obtained secretly recorded confess. and a major data leak. i've attended bytes of documents photos and messages. they tell the story of the president of the maltese . ya mean. it is a tale of corruption thuggery and international money laundering. what words would you use to describe. reclusive brutal corrupt authoritarian
bicycle when he started politics. but now he's a banana he is the mafia head he presents himself as he behaves like. the data drive leads to singapore and a plot to launder up to $1500000000.00 through the moldy central bank i just. have a place to live picture we have tracked down the man behind the deal men who move billions of dollars in cash stocked on pilots time is precious you. seriously. even sometimes my question is can. a journalist who criticize the government disappear. a television station torched. anyone
and everyone will exploit this different opinion in some they have been punished. everybody is afraid. to the outside world the maldives is a picture of paradise but the local people don't live on luxury resorts. for them it's either the cramped capital or underdeveloped islands. their paradise has not just been lost it has been stolen.
what's happening in the moment it's out. and about. we didn't say well what $300000000.00 have gone missing. and there's a. lot. of. i'm will jordan i lived and worked in the maldives as a journalist a decade ago i returned to investigate the country's ruler after obtaining an extraordinary day to drop. the information provides hard proof of long held suspicions. i didn't realize that they were using the state for all sorts of criminal activities we'd heard rule was but i mean up until now we hadn't seen any proof. the leak is the contents of 3 mobile phones everything from secret documents to selfies.
taken together they tell a story of corruption. the man on the phone. the country's youngest vice president to just 33. in his phone messages vice president to deep portrays himself as more than just a politician. i am boss of all gangs in the motifs. they all operate as a fleet i took them over in the last election. deep swapped football for politics becoming tourism minister in 2013. the tourism minister is known as the a.t.m. because that's what brings in revenue for the government. it was also quite amazing his transformation from 2012 to last year he raised massively in size.
he was just so far. and it was also all the bling bling ring the haircut the glasses. the cars it was unbelievable. he referred to himself and his friends his brother and the system became known as the bro economy he was just flaunting his wealth and he always had a group of other bros. and there were also in parliament so he made sure a lot of his former football player friends got elected to parliament in there were all the same. messages reveal how he and his boss president stole paradise. he. very loyal because he took the money the money the money. down prices to international hotel chains. he was selling our nation from.
there were. building houses the maldives marketing and p.r. corp it was the cash machine and they legally withdrew millions. was appointed by. recta and regularly receive texts from vice president to deep to arrange their deals. 3 checks 13w1w1w bro gifts also in that broke don't worry man he gave a free reign to a blows yet his accomplice at them n.p.r. seemed to just had it out islands and all these deals it was so clear that from day one been never intended for this money to actually be used for the public good. the scam begins when unwitting tourism tycoons pay
a fee for an island say $5000000.00 they would make out the check to the mole leaves marketing and p.r. corp but rewrote the rules to allow checks to be diverted it would put his signature and stamp on the back and it would be paid into another account cashed out and embezzling. these 2 checks total over $5000000.00 u.s. dollars the checks were paid from the government corporation to companies controlled by a deep uncle. the day to show how vice president to deep lead the theft of nearly $80000000.00 of state funds. better make it casual something because we don't want anyone to know any details of ideals but. ok. the government is even planning
a special tax free zone for investors vice president to deep joked about the opportunities it would offer. we will make zone deals not only islands he. the untouchables. being on touchable can be expensive. we've obtained secretly filmed confessions given by men who worked closely with the vice president and his boss. they describe how stolen money was used to buy influence. since he came to power here bin laden. is the judges lawyers. if you will this the whole system is fucked. the president's money men are on the run in the u.k. the maldives government has put them under international arrest warrants the men
say the government wants them back because they know too much about president. i think that the president is scared they didn't know. all the information. each man describes how he rode around on a moped delivering bribes. money stolen from the people and given to the maldives most influential. make some c.e.o. then goes yeah i just didn't get the 1st. issue of who is also. they are. just going to be. the plan was not just to use the money to buy politicians but judges as well. like ali hamid at the supreme court.
the phone messages expose him in receipt of stolen money. last night you gave ali homemade $4000.00. yes. ok good thing to those and 12 there were audio clips and radios that were leaked that just appeared to show a man that sounded and looked like on the homemade having 6 or 3 different women in a colombo hotel room. and also a conversation had had with a local businessman where he said i am a young man. the messages show that for a fee judge for me was a young. the truism fees for 2 of his children abroad and jobs for his brother and cousin loyalty. until the next election.
we will remain soldiers till the mission is over in 2018. we will never let them destroy our president and his team's achievement. after the sex tapes judge me came under investigation. 6 months later vice president of deep managed to close the inquiry. read the news i have saved up patriot alley hammy 6 months work. my dear brother and his excellency the president did more than enough for me and my family i would always be grateful so. now for the good you know he was appointed esther chief of contrition so scholarship that's come on to start don't you know. we're talking about a man who was caught on camera having sex with 3 different women in
a country where women get regularly flogged for having sex outside of marriage. with the judges and that pocket vice president of dban president could act with impunity. several media organizations were attacked. rajai t.v. was torched on october 23rd teen shown he is the head of the english department there with almost burned down everything all he could mention is in here it was all down. but he started 10 hours later and then. undeterred the channel continued to broadcast a year later. the vice president also police to repeat the attack but the chief of police suggested intimidating the channel's investors instead. lost it again.
no i guess better control sponsors. he ok give me the list. journalist ahmed rwanda vanished over 2 years ago he was a reporter from old leaves independent. so you know rashid is the editor. on august 10th when he didn't show up for work we thought ok he's hibernating. monday he didn't turn up for work tuesdays when his family said we haven't been able to reach him and that's when we got worried. they began retracing his final journey. they found c.c.t.v. footage of him at the ferry terminal. and they believe he was being watched.
he took the 1 o'clock ferry. one got off the ferry he didn't get on the bus but he walked off and sometimes i wonder you know like why did he walk home. we've all received death threats if we'd just gone home earlier he would be here today he might be here today. this is a. cyst change so much so he lived in that apartment of the. on the top so. between my 13th floor plus there's sort of like a man being forced into a car at knife point. and the car driving off really fast the college of so fast the people in the car don't have time to close the door. 2 weeks off the real one went missing police had few leads the case had become high profile
but the president was not concerned. instructed the home affairs minister to take it easy on the investigation. no need to be overwhelmed by real one case. ok noted. at the very least it implies a massive cover up by the government and west it implies that president otherwise president were involved in ordered his abduction. we lobbied every single government body or state body that we could think of i mean we know every single door and none of these places responded. real ones family suspect he was investigating corrupt oil and deals. it's a corrupted place. only the people who says yes without questioning will get the benefits of everything. but since
jimmy keyboard questioning. it wasn't just the abduction but it was also the fact that the entire state failed that i think was the one heart of the realisation that when something happens to you the people who are entrusted with your safety don't care i think that was even harder. the government has sold islands cheaply over the maldives. today in the greater mali asshole there isn't a single left to develop. all to the i was informed more than 60 items for. i give them out it's not on the audience shane on the groom's skitter or the more these everything has been sold. one of the
murkiest deals was for the oil and of margot. this is the place. it was a. model itself it could easily fit 10000000 this to us if you put into the proper tendering process. only 2500000 was it just seemed to the government. the buyer was new mood resorts led by italian gian andrea tossing according to a report by the maldives order to general the deal broke the law because there was no open bidding forged documents also emerged surrounding the deal involved companies links to the vice president's uncle we've shown our evidence to an anti corruption analyst. the money ended up in an account controlled by a company and was involved with a family member of the tories and then this again that's really classic case of
corruption when you mix business family members politics and money goes missing they basically designed these transitions to look normal but in fact these facets cloud designed to steer public funds. deeps phone messages show the deal involved a moldavian gangster known as t.c. dave weeks after the deal was done the details came out. a diva asked t.c. dave if he was behind the leak. broke tasse or your guys are giving this him 1st. no i don't think so if you know we made a deal but figures and transactions. the auditor general's report suspected corruption despite that workers are building 99 villas a resort is due to open in 2017 under the. of attorney and hotel chain. the government is selling these islands on behalf of the people of the moldings you
need to really look at the basis of those deals and start questioning is this a fair transaction have the people of the multi got the deal that they should have done all those companies who go to this island to work have the right to get this out in the 1st place. so the government of. turkey it's. hardly any hotels so they were not aware of any corruption in the oil and deal you move results and also you deny any involvement in the corruption and say they did not take any documents or transactions. you would it's a general report concluded that money was stolen from a total of at least $59.00 island deals. that i wanted money involved in this is which without realizing the corruption went right to the top the auditor general submitted his report to the president when i personally informed who basically
ignored everything. they can just change the law and then the original was towards from sophie's it was me. following publication of this report you know when members of my family received death threats. they weren't idle threats corrupt police officers informed vice president a dba view wanted and they conspired to silence another voice. you guys need to focus on this auditor general. now or. maybe we need to light up his office as he is continuously making trouble for us. we check that place lots of cameras everywhere. ok that you need to
blasted any cost. sure let's do it. but we need to blast it at any cost oh my god. oh my god. things sky swan trying to blow off east with 200. crazy state sponsored terrorism against its own institutions. how could they do this. such a dirty come on and there was a major. next to it this is coming from as so. that's 2. i think the reason why this thing was going on as i warned them i'm going to report so they were trying to stop us from publishing this report and
there were no that was actually organized. and in mauritius police is supposed to be protected sawhorse would be behind these things. and we deal. in part to president means impunity grows and so do the deals we confront men involved in using them old leaves to shift up to $1500000000.00 so do you help people on the money like how can you even see that says to my feet how can you even see that $1500000000.00 of physical cash pallet. it's something from a james bond film. make a change. change your life or the path of a country challenge the accepted truth if you want to create something you 1st
break you continue remold up to turn the status quo and fight injustice down the hole months it in their. lives our goal is to. witness personal documentaries not photo deception on al-jazeera. for a goalkeeper from one is a. home world cup was what dreams were made of. turned into a nightmare of a russian told jim by argentina's military jumped on. in the 1st of a new season footballing legend eric cantor now introduces cloud your tambourine one of a special few stood up for their beliefs whatever that cost. football rebels on algis even the. teaching you could watch out just the way english streamline the nike channel. plus thousands of our programs award winning
documentary and dead news reports. subscribe to you chief who would slash al-jazeera english. rule. but 2 of al-jazeera investigations in a moment but 1st the headlines and there is growing alarm over the increasing number of coronavirus cases in chile despite one of the world's leading banks in rollouts a 3rd of the population about their 1st job but cases are rising on average by 5000 a day. latin america editor of the c n human in santiago. certainly the vaccination campaign has been a model. actually it's 33 percent of the population.
at this point today the president. 5000000. 90 days the whole population will be inoculated the problem is that you need 80 percent. for herd immunity. and what we're seeing here is exactly the opposite. health officials are pushing back against fears about one of the coronavirus facts scenes which has led to it suspension in $1000.00 countries european medicines agency says there is no indication the astra zeneca vaccine actually causes blood clots and it is quite firmly convinced the benefits outweigh the risks 17000000 people in the u.k. and europe alone have had the jab and fewer than 40 of them have shown signs of blood clots scientists warn the concerns could cause people to distrust vaccines as the crisis in may and worsens it's becoming difficult to be sure how many people have been killed in the military crackdown the u.n. is now putting it at 149 in just over 6 weeks but a political prisoner group insists the toll is more like 183 the martial law has
been imposed in many areas but protesters are defying restrictions by gathering on the streets gunmen on motorcycles have attacked a group of civilians in killing at least 58 people they were attacked while returning from a live stock market in. and purchased in yemen angry about poor living conditions and unpaid salaries of storm the presidential palace in the southern city of aden meanwhile the u.n. special envoy to yemen warned of a dramatic deterioration in the conflict there. and u.s. intelligence report says both russia and iran directed efforts to manipulate the 2020 presidential election it shows agencies believe moscow was trying to help donald trump win a 2nd term was pushing for a binding victory once again you are up to date with the headlines we're back with another bulletin in 25 minutes.
in part one we discovered how president. has turned the maldives into a mafia state. men biking bags of cash around the capital for the president and his cronies. but he has heard the whole system. later a plot to move up to $1500000000.00 in cash we reveal the asian businessmen involved. much of the seed money that i do feel we've got. a decade ago the mole leaves was a place of optimism and reform. 30 years of one party rule that ended. mohamed nasheed became the country's 1st democratically elected president in 2008. with stunts like an underwater cabinet meeting he cultivated
a global profile as climate campaigner. if more lives can be saved today we do not feel that the ease of much of a chance for the rest of the world. but in the sheets future was to be shaped by events in one of asia's major financial centers. his officials detected a massive fraud. it started in singapore but it wouldn't. and in the molding it's. thought was a very big scandal and the amounts involved in those transactions and that corruption is also very very big. that concerned the singapore branch of the mold leaves the state's trading organization from the ninety's until 2005 yeah i mean was in charge yeah i mean it was the chand it's t.-o.
he formed and only company registered in singapore this company was sitting all the way to burma. it had the whole marks of fraud so moldings police worked with singapore and offices to investigate machines government launched a court case which would soon implicate yummy we have obtained 2000 pages of legal papers they lay out president ya means roll you alleged fraud adds up to over $140000000.00. yes t.-o. imported oil to the moldy ya mean allegedly helped divert some of it to me in miles military jointer. an additional secret company was set up yes t.o. invoiced me and my so did the secret company. its profits were embezzled. this is a way of siphoning off money to me for their own in richmond when you control lots
of the needs of government you can lose those members by profiting from from the money that the government is taking in. by 2012 machines officials had the evidence in place to charge ya mean with. they were ready to take the case to trial. and then at home a mutiny. mohammed nasheed was ousted marched out of the president's office. on the day of the cool the they just about to announce some of the details on that case. i was at the trent i was at the person and i was forced to resign i. was certainly young and himself was. away from the unrest the new
government stopped the investigation the case was pretty closed and the paperwork locked away. your main head got away with it. a year later he was president and his 1st target his old adversary. mohamed nasheed was arrested in february 25th. a month later sentenced to 13 years in prison. attend the tables on machine. already didn't suggest president personally chose the leg of machine sentence the vice president's driver describes in secretly filmed video how it was done then. you need to go live to. your 3000000 believe you need to
do to. be destroyed it was if you. see this you you. you it's not the book you get if you believe it's not easy to believe. if you're using these. sort of pays if you'll sentence for 30 years terrorism was awarded directly by the person. well it's sad but. not not only because. i've been unlawfully and be held for so long that my family's been uprooted from my home i have had to leave the molders all of these politically motivated sentences of the diet by president jiang been told of the same but you will cause proven it beyond doubt that the sentence is all dished out
by the president himself so if i was arrested tomorrow and i'm old it was free and . what if you would know immediately to think that telling to the existing pala escaped a score then you are done and you're going to jail then you can think that. this is an independent judiciary to its judiciary hijacked by the executive by the president it's probably the most corrupt institution in the current. in power and with the arrival in prison the maltese became a playground for president and his deputy a deep. they stepped up the scale of their ambitions phone messages photos documents and e-mails revealing new plot. trying to bring $1000000000.00 u.s. dollars for a project. the total soon rose to 1500000000 it was hard currency.
$1500000000.00 of physical cash. that a lot of. physical cash being a red flag of money laundering vice president to deep worked on the project with $3.00 of the president's closest aides including his nephew they laid out an oil and investment plan to a group of secretive businessmen. the tourism ministry said lagune coordinates they outlined the resort investment scheme for an implausible large $1500000000.00 but it was a ruse to make the plot appear legitimate. the government is making a cover story of giving us a project development but that the funds will be brought. the middleman was singaporean. he replied to ministers spelling out the details of the scheme.
when the physical fandom rides in modell we need support from the motives monetary authority to secure the fund from the aircraft the bank premise is the verification counting and ensuring media credit to our bank account. the cargo was the equivalent of 12 pallets piled with $100.00 bills the plan was to fly it into the. soldiers then escorted to a vault where it is verified and counted the maldives central bank then credits a private. then the money looks clean and can be transferred out bit by bit. after the account is credited $10000000.00 us dollars will be telegraphed transferred to singapore hong kong the balance will stay if i can find suitable usage after 6 months the money will be telegraphed transferred out.
flying in 1500000000 dollars in hard cash saying that guy for development and moving this amount of money and in physical cash i think is quiet i haven't seen any example of this amount of cash being laundered through a central bank before it's something from a james bond film. vice president of deep gave one possible explanation of where the money was coming from and the central bank governor said it could be done. it's so fly capital people want to move here mostly since indonesian elections a lot of offshore oil trade money. if they can provide the details of the source of the funds. we can find a way. things is. at the very top of the government were involved in this suppose a deal to need that money there are examples of lots of countries where the
government is effectively run by crooks. e-mails and text messages showed 10 kuan yew was representing secretive find on see is a mysterious boss referred to only as mr hans. a mining and energy investor indonesian rossi honey. a british educated indonesian runs annoying all mine abdulhakim heidi. here he's pictured with the malaysian architect of the deal fide zone has done. he spun the web of front companies through which the money would be launched. finds on facebook account shows he was in iran in early 2015 the time of the plot and this e-mail from tom kwan you suggest the cash came not from indonesia but iran.
we caught up with mystified zan in a luxury mall in the malaysian capital. just for someone who's well jordan from al-jazeera as best could have you know wanted to talk to you about the mold ace and about cash flowing into the mole lives under your company city trust administrator you know anything about the gold as well so that in a time when you're done can you i've done quite knew. what to do when the. time when you from singapore oh yes a company kludgy a 5 ton store i thought i thought i met him before not all how come how did i come out here supposedly you what's your relationship with him he's he's he comes to the office. and on your. hope i've met him before the
nation got so we have evidence of a plot to fly in the hundreds of millions up to $1500000000.00 in cash oh i think i'm always you know that's a lot of money and transfer it to the state bank of india home and from the state to an account under the name of city trust an administrator and there's a lot of money and it looks like money laundering why would anyone want to move not going to get out when would i want to do are you trying to make cash into the moment i think i've been doing this business for 35 years and i do such things so do you help people want a money. mike brooks how can you even see that. says the mighty how can you even see that so you are 1st service in which i can bring large amounts of cash to you and you will plaintiff all. know you. absolutely not absolutely not. but that's not what mr finds on had told our undercover reporter minutes earlier i
just i said how are you i'll be ready to be 5 i've seen your picture. he met mystified zahn under the guise of being an investment executive with a number of very wealthy clients and said it's a time for you to take note if not you know. we basically look after high net worth individuals we told him our clients were looking to move large amounts of cash and political connections and wanted total secrecy this strongly suggests corruption and should raise red flags but for mystified zone it was business as usual some of these leaders have very substantial sums. some of the similarly some of it's in care and i know that might be an issue you know ok i see i was reading that the businessman appeared well connected but it isn't as though i know how he's a normal but there's no. mystified outlined what he could and what he couldn't do
for us. this even if. you knew. you we're. actually one of the good didn't sometimes michel shift the conversation turned to money laundering how do you get around the issue of cash i mean if we have looked very large quantities of cash i would present you well it's pretty sizable you have that kind of an. ache that's what we've got seriously that's a physical i'm not physical transaction this is. achievable wow. quotes here is would be your reason stirring. because your dollars can be quite tricky because of it and your social context you. can see coming out of the queue. is it. much easier you know so much you really he had one concern that the deal was so large it would disrupt the euro currency
market a lot euros. the place when really you know it's fast because market cannot stop so yes really like you can be. the deal involved absolute secrecy hiding our names behind several shell companies. that's previously i believe some of the structures who were serving me. really. so seriously. but this is a few 7 doors which you have to go is really cool to get the identity of your fish and if you look at the building you know it's actually upon the ship in maine it. goes why. should we come back. so you know in this actually. right. still. the dirty money would go through a central bank in the region. so i can see it from now.
and i'm going to. the bank. mystified zan told us we have misunderstood his comments and taken them out of context. time when you heard he and ross. deny any wrongdoing in the plan to transport cash and say no money was moved. we have discovered from secretly filmed confessions how men on mopeds delivered stolen money bags of cash to a corrupt political class. will see the people that don't have them and you will get. members of the school. was part of the front company used to steal government money to the most see you next if he had to slow them and they still be on the up and all you see is going to be mohammed latif
aka moho run the front company. president. wilson. plants in this playing in slip the name has been blacked out but it can still be recognized. off a $1000000.00 to president. to his account at the mall leaves islamic bank check number 2 for 7 mo hope aged 10. to. check to. transsexuals. all of. us to. be an illegal busy. hussein mohammed. was vice president
a deep driver he delivered the president's money on a moped huge sums of cash in black sports bags the vice president made the arrangements. do you believe do you need money to do the live who is new really pleased him to do this you. look. i don't tell young to do this it's me and most people here under its label because the newcomers are so it will do wonders devious 50 you know i mean you know he's. a student money he was new and you know it's me who knew me knew this was going to begin here community whose name you keep hearing. by me
2015 vice-president to depot to kenya lated money power and $3.00 gold i phones. he traveled all over the world meeting leaders like china's premier. his plan was coming together. he had installed a friend as prosecutor general affectively placing himself above the law. after that my power is complete. the deep even tried to get a gun and 2 dozen bullets. broke what you have now 9 millimeter silencer how many bullets. how many do you want. 24.
ok. delete all the messages bro for safety for both. i will. but the vice president had risen too far too fast. you know tobie 2015 blocks to the president's yacht. the 1st lady was her. president ya mean blamed a deep. voice president was sentenced for terrorism. but mostly behind the last. we have obtained these previously unseen forensic reports. lacking expertise the government called in american f.b.i. investigators and saudi specialists both found no conclusive evidence that there
was a bomb they suggested it was an accident which in turn suggests the president used the blast as an excuse to remove his closest rival. we have seen him in operation we have seen him. pledging his own government he has it is to. to 3 of his own my specific. a number of his own ministers. anyone and everyone who expres different opinion. in some they have been punished. now that there is no exception to be. before vice president a deep could be arrested he handed his phones to an ally make them out of the mold as a source copy the contents to us. the
phone leak documents and recordings of revealed a paradise kong could corrupted. and stolen. the system has completely failed i mean in such a small place where everyone knows everyone it's very easy to corrupt the entire system. it's like a game or politics. at the top before. the presidential nominee is in want policing the world central bank in world parliament in world and traditionally in what. is no future for country. so there's no future for us.
