2:01 am
were asked to be better prevention there have to be as steps of education in school, but to pot grownups as well. have to be steps off to a rocky and save our bacon. u. k. farm is being forced to coal, thousands of healthy pigs due to a shortage of slaughter house workers brought on by the pandemic, and also breaks it. ah, hi, good morning. you're watching art international where it's just gone 9 o'clock in the russian capital. now opening a pandora's box and you expose a on tax havens, has shown how the world's richest hide their wealth. the leak of financial data is one of the biggest in his street and reveals how even worldly does stash their cash in offshore locations. don't quarter,
2:02 am
gave more details to call him back. people definitely were anticipating something as big as what happened in 2016 when the pat, when the panama papers were released. but actually this one hasn't made as much noise. the guardian sure had a click. beatty picture of vladimir putin's face right at the front of its article, even though in the pandora papers vladimir putin was not even named as so that's a bit a bit interesting. but the investigation primarily deals with more or less obscure people. i mean, we have some examples being the king of jordan. so offshore properties, personal properties, the purchase of several theatres, by the general director of russia's channel one he was said to have been a silent partner in this operation. but he's already commented publicly that he hasn't concealed anything about his business dealings in connection to this. one higher profile mentioned though, the ukranian president vladimir zalinski in 2019, he was elected and most enlarged park on his platform of promising to rid the
2:03 am
country of corruption. and ukraine is notoriously, has a problem with corruption. and according to this investigation, he actually transferred 25 percent of his stake in a foreign at an offshore company to his personal friend who is now the top presidential advisor. so, so far he hasn't commented on that seems a little bit shady, but no confirmations. usually when we think of tax havens right, i mean, you think of maybe a financial center like hong kong or some sort of obscure caribbean island. but the pandora paper is actually paint a very different picture there, showing that they actually revealed that south dakota has become the new hot spot for tens of millions of dollars that used to be in offshore accounts in the caribbean and europe. and this is despite of jo biden's promised to know combat corruption. earlier this year to day i'm issued a national security study memorandum of the fight against corruption to establish competent corruption as a core us national security interest. the united states will lead by example. and in partnership with allies,
2:04 am
civil society ended the pro sex as to far this courage of corruption good. in fact, delaware, wherein mister biden hales from i've got some pretty good, the tax breaks, the company's them they. so if his big platform is to deal with tax evasion, has many leaders do where the americans on that list? well, it's a good question. they're basically not there. i mean, we hear report after report obviously about like a lot of american businessman and big corporal corporate owners avail. avoiding. busy taxes, and yet this report for some reason only mentions a couple of very obscure american billionaires that i personally never heard of. and so, yeah, the, the big question is, you know, where are all the big american names? i mean, what about the richest man in the world? jeff bezos, his company, amazon paid 0 dollars and 0 cents and federal income tax. not just in 2020, but also in 201820. 17 eli musk page is also 0 dollars and 0 cents and federal income tax. in 2018 donald trump paid $750.00 back in 2017. so it
2:05 am
seems a bit fishy, that there are, there might be nothing important our of value to mention about these offshore assets. now we also did hear from whistleblower, edward snowden. he let out a tweet bout the report on this leak. so let's take alice, the humorous side of this very serious story is that even after 2 apocalyptic offshore finance law firm leaks, those industries are still compiling vast databases of ruin and still secure them with a posted note mark, do not leak hats off to the source this is just the beginning of these sir reports, and these leaks about these pandora papers. more of them are promised for the coming weeks, so we're gonna have to keep an eye out for them. but as we heard that the u. s. state of south dakota has emerged as a new destination for wealthy people to avoid tax experts we spoke to. they said that they weren't surprised. the very thing that the united states criticized switzerland in the past poor it is now doing the famous numbered
2:06 am
account. look, the real lesson here is, if you will allow the distribution of wealth and income to be as only equal as it now is in the world to day. you create the incentive and the means for those that the top to continue to accumulate from one generation to another. there's amazing tax evasion taking place around the world. and there's also a lot of unaccounted, unaccountable capital sloshing around the world. you know, using various off shore havens and, and governments tolerate this and, and banks make a lot of money off this. and the u. s. by the way, it is itself a major tax haven. it's a incorporation laws are among the easiest in the world. so the u. s. is actually our. busy crime participant, and this kind of a really crazy, monstrous,
2:07 am
no tax avoidance. now, europe is on the brink of an energy crisis. his prices continue to hit record highs . one, gym and electricity produced or even shut down its power plant simply because there was no more coal and the country and other you states t. we're also facing shortages of natural gas. let's talk more about this for that . i'll corresponding, charlotte kapinsky empowers florida. good morning key charlotte m winter is coming this assure teacher fuel question is, how is europe and to manage this crisis? well, that's why it's a discussion that the ministers will be looking at today in later this week. the idea is that the moment that there is a lot of finger pointing going on as the block faces this unprecedented energy crisis, that winter crunch is looming. and according to some, this is
2:08 am
a problem that has been years in the making. let's have a look at some of the main issues across europe at the moment. and we'll start here in france, where there has been a price increase this month of 12.6 percent in gas tariffs that follows several months of other rises. the prime minister shawn cast excess, they will not be a freeze and they will not be any more increases. but of course, that doesn't mitigate the months of increases that people have already seen on their household bills. then in spain, where the price is, they have tripled in the last year. i mean, we know that the spanish government is made emergency measures to try and mitigate the worst impact on the poor. but small business unions are just saying, this is an impossible situation. coming off to the cobit crisis, businesses just cannot take any more. and then in italy, but prices are set to so by 40 percent, italian government is announced to package over $3000000000.00 euros to try and aid
2:09 am
that. and then in germany, we also heard last week that one, the power plants had to completely shut up shop. and it's not the 1st time at all to do the same a number of times in september. why? well, because it couldn't get enough coal. this crisis when it comes to natural gas, has pushed more people towards buying coal, depleting those stocks as well. so it seems like this is a double whammy. so what's behind this looming catastrophe? well that you can all agree on that, but some member states see that this is a problem that he was cause itself because it's pushed too fast too quickly to move to greener energy in at the same time as moved away from fossil fuels. and essentially what it's done is, is left the entire block exposed energy prices are currently soaring across the e u and putting unprecedented pressure on both energy companies and all our
2:10 am
citizens. when designing energy and climate policies, we have to ensure their social acceptability. otherwise we risk their failure. well the e u flatly denies this, it would, jackson, it says actually this crisis shows that the problem is that a's too much dependence in the you on a fossil fuels. and the reality is that the only way to mitigate crises like this in the jays, to move harder and faster towards green energy. instead of being paralyzed though, slowing things down because of the price hike. now, in the energy sector, we should speed things up in the transition to renewable energy. so the affordable renewable energy becomes available for everyone. when i say e, u is scratching its head over what to do. it's also looking potentially for escape goat and some have suggested that russia is to blame for this crisis, saying that it is holding back on natural gas reserves. russia says that's not the case. in fact,
2:11 am
russia says it's willing to step up to the hour of need of it's you repeat neighbors and increase the supplies of gas to meet those needs. those demands. but what needs to happen for that to take place is the certification of the nord stream to pipe. this is a pipe that was completed last month and would see natural gas be able to be delivered directly to germany. but before that can happen, that certification needs to take place. that is something that you find out. some illnesses are likely to discuss this week as they meet to discuss this entire crisis. but the idea that you finance ministers are discussing bread and butter subjects like energy bills and how people are going to pay them really gives you a sense of how deep this crisis is. and as they scratching their heads, looking for a solution, there are tens of millions of households who are concerned about what this winter is going to bring. the difficult choices that they will have to make in order to
2:12 am
either heat their homes or feed their families all the while it is wondering how it will keep the light so on. yeah, difficult. few months ahead. ok, thanks charlotte. charlotte kaminsky they're reporting empowers. now there's outrage at what scene is aileen sentence for an afghan teen who sexually abused to 7 year old or free and go. i'll spend just 10 months behind bars and received therapy after enticing the child into the basement of an apartment block and a soaking up. ah. with
2:13 am
what another horrifying incident did happened in austria, back in june and 3 afghan traits and killed a 13 year old girl. despite their immediate arrest. one of the suspected killers though, did manage to sneak into the u. k. and or a fake 9 in a bow to rescue cheese unclaimed asylum. now was another wave of fleeing afghans arrive in austria, towns the sebastian curse is taking a tough stone. some crimes committed by migrants along with a resistance to accept any more sign and see cuz to or from the authorities have also said that they were forcibly to port afghans his request for asylum fail. according to you and data for 2020 austria has more than 40000 afghan refugees. the 2nd base number off to germany. kevin, i discussed the issue of violence by refugees and how justice is handed. dan, with a panel of guests. most people seeing it's far too lenient because the guy, even if you spend 10 months in behind bars, he's
2:14 am
a huge danger for the public. he has a lot of problems and a console comp to solve was in 10 months behind the bar. they say that he will get psychological treatment after that, he will get that, but he will be a lot when he's out of prison. and i don't think he will just be cute, because he has a few hours, was a psychotherapist, textual assault, and abuse, or not excusable. they have to be better prevention. they have to be a cation in school, but of grownups as well. and i think punishment is one way, but punishment alone doesn't test. so we have to have a more holistic attempt and we really have to prevent that these cases happen again. this is of course, political, correct argumentation. yeah. but it has nothing to do with facts and reality because it's not at general plant problem. it's specially a byron problem. it's also the sort of people that come,
2:15 am
it's not the poor starving rural people coming, but it's people with some cash from the cities. they're mostly comedies, asylum seekers here, and they often are involved in crimes and petty crimes in their own countries. if you look at the case of migration, 1st of all, if we don't ask natal states for example, we don't conduct most likely not all like in syria, people wouldn't have to leave that country if people come and live in our country, of course they have to have a good education if we take them and then we have to give them the possibility to work. and of course we have as well, if people come traumatized from wall of countries with all the political oppression to give them some kind of therapy as well. it's not enough just to give them some money, say others integration problem nice to come. well come,
2:16 am
they should really be brought into the middle of society. and that's a long way to go. you see these people, they are 5 to 10 times as many crimes, specially crimes related to women as the average australian citizen. so the problem is not so easy to handle. it's not like we shouldn't instrumental lies the case to say it's just the afghan people, all the migrant. i think we should go deeper. meanwhile, he doesn't say it's presence in afghanistan is vital and made what the block calls looming, social and economic crisis in the country. will have, for that is a deadly explosion in couple killed several people at a funeral. have the latest from the capitol. in a few minutes my britain is heading for an animal welfare disaster, sir, the warning from the countries peg produces. and it's because of a severe shortage of butch's and slaughter highest workers to tackle
2:17 am
a national backlog of life stuck on farms. we are within a couple of weeks of having to consider a mass call of animals in this country. if we don't have facebook chairs, if we don't have that skill and we are going to end up killing those pegs, but them not entering the food supply chain. they will go full rendering. they will be and you know, they won't enter the seats class chain and that is incredibly wasteful, especially when the government's very cane. all man progressing in terms of the environment. and it really goes against everything they're trying to achieve their while about a 120000 pigs are now in danger of being cold with farms running out of space to keep them. the industry is just one of many in the u. k. currently grappling with labor shortages with the pandemic and also breaks it being singled out as the main reasons for the shortfall as foreign workers were booted out of the country due to
2:18 am
border restrictions and new immigration rules. however, the u. k. government wants to see employers make long term investments and u. k. domestic workforce instead of getting labor from abroad. although the public isn't too happy about it. i don't remember. braxton is telling us that leaving the european union would lead to farmers being forced to should mirrors of pigs on their farms. i'm sure they said there were no downsides only upsides this is criminal, there are people storing of the government or a law and healthy beaks. to go into landfill, open your eyes, we need help, more skilled stuff, unless you product common in healthy pigs killed and destroyed well, families are in poverty and can't afford food. briggs, it means briggs it vacaville again, urge is immediate action to avoid empty shells. this christmas well, a lot of the butchers that used to work in the u. k. and not from miscast tray. and
2:19 am
following except for the a we have lost a huge number of. busy butchers from our industry and we're down about 10 to 15 percent say quite a considerable number because we've got about a 100000 pigs on farm that should have gone 3. the other 2 are that backlog is increasing by about 12000 takes a week, and that is why it's so important. so the government really lessons and brings in the labor that we need in order to be able to process those pegs unless we have a resource in, in, in this sector. we are not going to be able to tell the pegs that we need to have in order for it 1st to happen that we would like to see ourselves this chris left to watch. not international. still ahead for this monday morning, a top candidate for berlin met rejects the idea of expropriating apartments from major landlords. despite public support for the proposal to keep rent stand. we'll
2:20 am
hear from berlin tenant association, just after the break. ah, for driven by drimmers shaped by 10 percent of those with things we dare to ask a oh, just don't hold any you will yet to see out is the becomes the african
2:21 am
and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. ah ah, welcome back. now, overnight, 7 paperwork killed in a blast. it could build 2nd biggest mosque. taliban says it has detained 3 people allegedly responsible. meanwhile, the u. s. foreign policy chief does insist that brought meets a presence in afghanistan to prevent what it phase is a looming social collapse. afghanistan is experiencing
2:22 am
a serious humanitarian crisis, and a socio economic collapse is looming, which will be dangerous for afghans to region and international security. so the question is on, if we should have a minimal e u presence on which all member states agree, but when and how we're working on possible options, taking into account the security situation. just to bring home how dia, the situation here in afghanistan, east millions of people here, especially in cobble heat their homes in the harsh winter months with, with plastic. the entire city stinks of burn plastic in the winter months because wood is precious. oil is expensive. people here have no money to pay for food for food, never mind, health care or, or materials to burn to heat their homes with. and the situation is that a wall a, the east coming in international a much of it, many countries. and anyway,
2:23 am
8 organizations are making it conditional. so they're saying either you meet these obligations, you meet these criteria. you have women in government, we won't give you aid. and given how desperate the humanitarian situation here is that millions on the verge of hunger and of, of the cold of freezing at the taliban has said that essentially these conditional aid office attack about 2 to black men and that they won't be pressured. i you out my advice to the world neighbors, muslims, and particularly afghans is to leave of genest unto afghans. the world cannot build of canister no way. we have reached our goal brothers, but it requires its protection. it is not the end. the world is still plotting against us. the world still tries to impose governments on us under this, on that name. they wish for destruction, paralysis and damage of the slammer. cameron of, of dentist on ball aid has been coming into afghanistan. these the bare minimum
2:24 am
needed to stave off calamity for another few weeks, perhaps another few months because the war here is continuing. united states and its allies may have withdrawn. it may no longer be them fighting the taliban. but the taliban is at war with isis. it is a war that is intensifying all over the country. we see evidence of that every day . the explosion on sunday its cobbled 2nd biggest mosque, is just the latest estimate that even the most secure sites are a vulnerable we saw in the aftermath of that rate. juvenile rates carried out by the taliban all over the capitol cobble, where they were hunting down. i says sells isis k. operative in other areas of the country. we have seen dr. but we have seen bombings, attacks carried out by isis against the taliban. and the, the thing here is us, aside from causing all the,
2:25 am
the suffering amongst the civilian population. there is also the foreign policy consideration for, for western nations. the taliban, as the devil they know the devil that they can work with. if reluctantly, i sis may use the humanitarian crisis here in afghanistan. if the taliban is unable to deliver, to recruit more desperate people. and that is what perhaps europe and the united states are essentially trying to avoid forecasts at their reporting a couple. now one of the grimmest at the sight of that nessie evacuation is when a young football player fell from a plane while trying to flee the country. ah ah, and worry was one of many acting. he's trying to flee the country as the plane
2:26 am
gained altitude. he fell to his death. ah, but there was a kid. zaki was more than a brother to me. we trained together for the last 4 years. no one can fill his place in the team and in our hearts hail at my kid i am wearing belonged to zaki. but it's mine. now he was a better footballer than me. we even called him messy. the entire afghan nation loved him. he was our hero. ah, god visited with zach he was one of our best players, a wonderful body, and a strong forward on his team. today they're playing with outside and we can feel the difference in them. my son's like he was a national player, very talented, but i never came here for the, for this my 1st time and he's not with us today. i miss him so much. ah,
2:27 am
how authorities in berlin is struggling to could the cost of rents in the gym and capital which have been growing fast over the last couple of years? housing inequality is nice seen is one of the major problems facing residents. deli novolog since about 2010 rents have been rising constantly. and this, despite the fact that barely and authorities were not indifferent, but tried to take all possible measures to control their growth. however, the proposed net rent without heating another additional costs ranges from $14.00 to $19.00 euros for berlin as more than half of whom are eligible for social housing. this cost becomes prohibitively high. these grades great difficulties if they want to change their place of residence and find a new apartment and on very well in a non binding referendum. more than half the public did support the expropriation of apartments from large companies,
2:28 am
according to organizes putting the housing stock in public hands would help stop the growth of rents there. some german real estate company, so a stand against the move saying it would be almost impossible to implement the top candidate for berlin mare has also spoken, act against the plan. for me, the share of expropriation is already a red line. i do not want to live in a city that sends the signal, this is where expropriation is taking place. the expropriation debate alone is damaging berlin as a location. we need investment in infrastructure, but we also need effective tenant protection in my opinion. expropriation are not part of the toolkit. the referendum is just the latest attempt to rein in the cities housing market. it came after the overturning of berlin's rent camp that was supposed to freeze prices for nearly all apartments. for 5 years. the measure was ruled unconstitutional though, which led to thousands marching against high rent prices. the berlin tenens
2:29 am
representative things. the rejection of the results may lead to a loss of trust that he not yet stephanie's will fight against the communist zation law would definitely face lawsuits. but if the burning senate, the new berlin government did not take into account the real a referendum in which more than 50 percent of berlin is voted in say the of making such a decision, then i think the government would lose the trust of voters. i think that the berlin senate will not dare to ignore the results of the popular vote. is coming papa on in the morning. harry moscow watch naughty international. we'll have more stories for you and the headlines. investments are these are the full people who pulled the trigger. i survive something on survival. wireless. the wireless things that i had to face was not having
2:30 am
a face. i had a low expectation of life. i accepted death. i accept the fact that i made that work. we had no fears. del change pretty fast for shots. different stories behind the bullets. ah ah.
