tell months silly you know minute by minute. most believe you are useless. being what he used to live. al-jazeera is investigative unit has obtained secretly recorded confessions and a major data leak. i've attended bytes of documents photos and messages. they tell the story of the president of the maldives . ya mean abdul gayoom. 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 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. beat you. we have tracked down the man behind the deal men who move billions of dollars in cash stock don't pilots have a presence here. so. seriously. my question is. a journalist who criticize the government disappeared. a television station torched.
anyone and everyone expects a different opinion in some they have been punished. everybody. 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. of. their paradise. it's not just.
what's happening in the moment it's it's. about. we didn't say well what $300000000.00 have gone missing. well. jordan i lived and worked in the maldives as a journalist a decade ago i returned to investigate the country's rule after obtaining an extraordinary day to draw. the information provides. for all sorts of criminal activities. but. we had. the leak is the contents of 3 mobile phones everything from secret documents.
together they tell a story of corruption. the country's youngest vice president to just 33. in his phone messages president a 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. for politics becoming tourism minister in 2013. because that's what brings in revenue for the government. it was quite amazing his transformation.
was just so. and it was also in. the car as it was on. he referred to himself and his friends as bro and the system became known as the bro economy he was just flaunting his wealth and he always had a group of other bros around him 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. phone messages reveal how he and his boss president stole paradise. he. very loyal sure no question he took the money the money the money. the truman
offered islands that knocked down prices to international hotel chains. he was selling our nation from. there were 5w3w. base building houses the maldives marketing and p.r. corp it was the cash machine and they illegally withdrew millions. was appointed director and regularly received texts from vice president to deep to arrange their deals. 3 checks 13w1w1w bro gifts also in broke don't worry. he gave a free reign to a blows yet his accomplice at them p.r.c. to just islands and all these deals it was so clear that from day one been never intended for this money to actually be used for 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 maldives marketing and p.r. corp but rewrote the rules to allow checks to be diverted it would put is sick. niche 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 cash or 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. the untouchables. being on touchable can be expensive. we have obtained secretly filmed confessions given by men who worked closely with the vice president and his boss. described how stolen money was used to buy influence. since it came to. this the judges. 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 prize. money stolen from the people and given to the maldives most influential. me some see it in those 'd. i just didn't get the 1st. issue of who is also. 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 appeared to show a man that sounded and looked like on the hamid having sex with 3 different women in a colombo hotel. 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 28. 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 will always be grateful so. now for the good your he was appointed tester chief of the nutritional service commission. 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 in that pocket a vice president a d. been president ya mean could act with impunity. several media organizations were attacked. rajai t.v. was torched in oct 23rd teen shown he is the head of the english department there with almost burned down everything all they could mention is in here it was all burnt down. but they 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. 'd 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 home it's 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 $130.00 and $4.00 plus this saw him 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 didn'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 so. at the very least it implies a massive cover up by the government worst 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 knocked on every single door and none of these places responded. real ones family suspect he was investigating corrupt oil and deals. so corrupt a place. only the people who
says yes without questioning will get the benefits of everything. but since me keep on questioning me. it wasn't just the abduction but it was also the fact that the entire state failed that i think that 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 lagoon left to develop. all to the i was informed more than 60 items for. i give them out on the audience to show your love
. for them or this everything has been sold. one of the murkiest deals was for the oil and of mago. the place. model itself it could easily fix $10000000.00 mistrusts if you put into the proper tendering process. only 2500000 was it just seemed to the government. the boy was new mood resorts led by italian gian andrea tulsi according to a report by the maldives ordered to gen the deal because there was no open bidding . forged documents also emerged surrounding the deal involved companies links to the vice presidents on coal 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 where you mix business family members politics and money goes missing they basically designed these transitions to look normal but in fact these classic designed to steer public funds. deeps phone messages show the deal involved a mole devean 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 banner of italian hotel chain likely only
. 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 if it's a fair transaction have the people of the multi got the deal that they should have done. companies go to this island to work have the right to get this out in the 1st place. so the government of more is should. decide that it's. not the only hotels say they were not aware of any corruption in the island deal humid resorts in general torso 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 and then i personally informed who basically ignored everything. and they can just change that and then we're just you know was it a mood from sophie's it was me. follow up a new question of this record you know members of my family received death threats . they weren't idle threats corrupt police officers informed vice president a db of the audit and they conspired to silence another voice. you guys need to focus on this auditor general. now we're. maybe we need to light up his office this is continuously making trouble for us. we check that place lots of cameras everywhere. ok that you need to
blast it it's any cost. sure let's do it. but we need to blast it at any cost all my heart. oh my god. things sky swan trying to blow off east with 200. crazy state sponsored terrorism against its own people and institutions. how could they do this. next to it coming from. i think the reason why this thing was going i was born and i'm going to report so
they try to stop us from publishing this to point and there were no that was. just put is supposed to be protected sawhorse would be behind these things and. in part 2 president. grows 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. how can you even see that. my feet can even see $1500000000.00 of physical cash. it's something from a james bond film. most clearly. after egypt's revolution their passion turned into something much bigger.
0 world. mixing the traditional with the mountain dew you knew what to expect ignoring cost of i was the only thing which generated their voice the music greek music played to the speakers wielding the power of music to turn up the volume on india's social injustices when i saw the performance or wall and shake things out we went on stage of something we brought us to just on to this witness causeless collective on al-jazeera.
if you want to help save the world's. sneeze into your own. the in. the world. hello there i was on the hall with the headline for you here on al-jazeera tanzania's president john mica fairly has died aged 61 africa's most prominent coronavirus skeptic hadn't been seen in public since last month and there was speculation about his health the government says he died from heart failure while tanzania's constitution says the vice president must serve the rest of the 5 year term if the president conned that means samantha who has son is set to make history as tanzania's 1st female president
a bus carrying afghan government employees has been targeted in a bombing in the capital kabul at least 3 people have been killed and another 11 were injured and separately 9 members of afghanistan's security forces have died in a helicopter crash the chopper went down and best suited to district in walk what doc province. u.s. secretary of state anthony blinken says all options are on the table in future relations with north korea he and the u.s. defense secretary have been meeting south korean counterparts and so they can reaffirmed his commitment to pressing north korea into new kid disarmament we also discussed china we are clear eyed about beijing's consistent failure to uphold its commitments and we spoke about how visions aggressive and authoritarian behavior are challenging the stability security prosperity in the pacific region. beijing's actions make forging a common approach among our allies all the more important at a time when we're seeing a rollback of democracy and human rights around the world including in burma where
the military is attempting to overturn the results of a democratic election by drill you're pressing peaceful protesters it is more important than ever that we are we stand together for the values for the interests that unite us brazil has reported yet another day of record corona virus infections as the crisis that escalates more than 19000 cases were registered on wednesday alone brazilian media say on average more than 2000 people are now dying every day dutch prime minister margaret has claimed victory in parliament elections exit polls put his conservative party on calls to become the largest in the lower house and one of his coalition partners the center left the $66.00 is on track to come 2nd while the anti immigration freedom party is projected to finished. well those are the headlines of folly we'll have more news for you here off the al-jazeera investigations stay with us.
in part one we discovered how president ya mean up to a guy you know has turned a mole deaves into a mafia state. and men biking bags of cash around the capital for the president and his cronies. but he has conquered the whole system. later a plot to move up to $1500000000.00 in cash we reveal the asian businessmen involved. want to receive money that i didn't do we got. a decade ago the mole leaves was a place of optimism and reform. 30 years of one party rule had 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 to be me don't you find that even much of a times for davis to develop. 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 would end in the molding. that was a very big scandal and the amounts involved in those transactions and that corruption is also very very big. it concerned the singapore branch of the maldives the state's trading organization from the ninety's until 2005 was in charge young was
the chand it's t.-o. he formed an only company registered in singapore this company was setting. but. it had the hallmarks of fraud so molise police worked with singapore and offices to investigate machines government launched a court case which would soon implicate. we have obtained 2000 pages of legal papers they lay out president ya means roll the 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 and. 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. mohamed nasheed was ousted marched out of the president's office. on the day of the cool be they just about to announce some of the details of that case. i was attacked i was a person and i was forced to resign i. was certainly a young man 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. you need to go need to. give you need to
do to. be destroyed it was if you keep. this you you. you it's not the book you get if you believe it's not easy to eat. if you're decent and she. sort of pays a little sentence of 30 years terrorism was awarded directly by the person. well it's sad but. not not only because. unlawfully and could be held for so long my family's been uprooted from my home i have had to leave the molders all of these politically motivated sentences. dieted to by president. 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 in the mall it was free and. what if you would know immediately to think that telling the existing pala score then you are done and you're going to jail then you can think that. this is an independent judiciary are told it's judiciary hijacked by the executive by the president it's probably. the most corrupt institution in the coming. in power and with the arrival in prison the maltese became a playground for president and his deputy are 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. red flag money laundering vice president to deep worked on the project with 3 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 for that the phones will be brought. the middleman was singaporean. he replied to ministers spelling out the details of the scheme.
when the physical fandom rides in modi we need support from the motives monetary authority to secure the fun from the aircraft 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 bank. then the money looks clean and can be transferred out bit by bit. after the account is credited $10000000.00 u.s. dollars will be telegraph 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 $1500000000.00 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 an 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 show tank when you 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 kline 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 will join from al-jazeera as vested if you don't want to talk to you tell them oldies and about cash flying into the mole lives under your company city trust administrator you know anything about them please go to the wall so you know 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 don't all have come hardy how can i do you suppose a nation what's your relationship with him he says he's he comes to the office. on your. hope because as i've mentioned before we need you guys so we have evidence
of close to fly in the hundreds of millions up to 1500000000 dollars in cash oh i think i'm always. that's a lot of money and transfer it to the state bank of india home and from 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 here are you trying to make cash into the moment i think i've been doing this business for 35 years and i don't 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 do you offer a service in which i can bring large amounts of cash to you and you will clean it all. no you. absolutely not absolutely not. but that's not what mr finds on had told our undercover reporter minutes earlier i
just i see how you can be ready to be 5 i've seen your picture. he met mystified zan under the guise of being an investment executive with a number of very wealthy clients. so there'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 had 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 this 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 is it normal that there's no. mystified outlined what he could and what he couldn't do for us.
you knew. you. actually want if he didn't sometimes microchip 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 to 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 what current woes here is would be your reason stirring. because your dollars can be quite tricky because of your social context. can't you come. to q. . is it. much easier you know so much you know really he had one concern that the deal was so large it would disrupt the euro currency market
a lot of us. the police weren't really you know it's fast because market cannot stop so yes we did not become the. the deal involved absolute secrecy hiding our names behind several shell companies. that's previously i believe some of the structure who was 70. really. so seriously you should but this is a huge 7 doors which you have to go is really cool to get the identity of you know if you look at the building you know it's actually a from the shipping meaning. why. should we come back you know so you know in this actually. right. still. the dirty money would go through a central bank in the region. so i can see people now.
and i'm sure interest groups at the bank think. mystified zan told us we have misunderstood his comments and taken them out of context. time when you heard he and. 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 do ecstasy 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. 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 the faster. to. be an illegal p.c. . hussein mohammed. was vice president
a deaves 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 do you believe you you need to do live through these new releases in to do this. look you used to deceive look i'm not looking. i don't tell young to do this it's me nice keep you here a minute later because when you come isn't so it will do wonders to be as if you did you know i mean you know he himself you know. student money he was new and unique missed me if you knew me you knew he was going to be going to your community whose name you can do now.
by me 2015 vice president a deep accumulated 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 effectively placing himself above the law. after that my power is complete. the deep even tried to get a gun and 2 dozen bullets. bro what you have now 9 millimeter silent how many bullets. how many do you want. 24.
ok. delete all the messages for safety for both. i will. but the vice president had risen too far too fast. you know today between the 15 blocks to the president's yacht. the 1st lady was her. president ya mean blamed a deep. voice president was sentenced for terrorism thank you it was a 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 that instant. 23 of his own life christian. a number of his own ministries. anyone and everyone who expres is different. in some they have been punished. that there is no exception to be. before vice president of 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 leaked documents and recordings of revealed a paradise conquered corrupted and stolen. the system has completely failed i mean in such a small place where everyone always everyone it's very easy to corrupt the entire system. it's like again while pointing. at the top of follow up comic. president yama as in more policing the world central bank in world parliament in water and traditionally in what. is no future for country. so there's no future for us.
