6:00 am
will be successfully very critical of time, time to sit down and talk with that owns and arthur this our hidden treasures, the secret financial feelings of hundreds of the world's richest and most powerful people are revealed in the biggest everly kick off shore data. united states itself emerging and leading tax haven also to come with an energy crisis looming over europe and skyrocketing gas prices. each member states point the finger of blame at brussels, green politics and don't. so russia and weak a military is now being deployed across the country to help ease the fuel crisis. there. many people for station, for main try the key to bang for driver's waiting for supplies. if you fight with your, with a visit, 6 or $7.00 is the peaks and troughs more money $1.00 day your, your flatow,
6:01 am
you'll be taking 3 times like you normally do on family and friends of a young afghan football. and he fell from a plane while trying to flee his country, voice, their grievances, remembering one of the grimmest episodes of the treatment through the entire afghan nation, locked him. he was our hero. no one can feel his place in the team and in our house . ah, ah, hello, good afternoon, you're watching artie international. i work meaning a pandora's box and you expose a on tax havens. how shown, how some of the world's richest to try to hide their wealth. the leak of financial data is one of the biggest in history and even reveals how world leaders stash their cash in secretive offshore companies. don't quarter, gave more details to call him break. people definitely were anticipating something
6:02 am
as big as what happened to 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 bady 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 country of corruption. and ukraine is notoriously, hasn't a problem with corruption. and according to this investigation,
6:03 am
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 papers actually paint a very different picture there, showing that they, they actually revealed that south dakota has become the new hotspot 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 promise to no 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, civil society ended the prior sex as to far this courage of corruption good effect,
6:04 am
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, as 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 corporate corporate owners, they avoiding 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 20182017. you must paid also 0 dollars and 0 cents and federal income tax in 2018 donald trump paid $750.00 back in 2017. so it seems a bit fishy, that there, there might be nothing important or of value to mention about these offshore assets
6:05 am
. now we also did hear from whistle blower, edward snowden. he let out a tweet about 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. now the investigation also named somebody to ladies, to be a full mcleana and lava fanny mae peyton and the mother of one of his children. svetlana could have a no geek is alleged to be the owner of monica apartment, bolt via no fuel company. will they, the relationship with the russian president has never been confirmed. meanwhile, a friend of the president also appears the papers that not mister peyton himself.
6:06 am
so as we heard, and the papers also revealed that the us state of south dakota has emerged in ye destination for wealthy people to avoid tax though experts we spoke, he say that they are not surprised. the very thing that the united states criticized switzerland in the past whore it is now doing the famous numbered accounts. 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. today you create the incentive and the means for those that the top to continue to accumulate from one generation to another. there is an 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,
6:07 am
and banks make a lot of money off this. and the u. s. by the way, it is itself a major tax saving it. so incorporation laws are among the easiest in the world. so the us is actually our prime participant, and this kind of a really crazy, monstrous, no tax avoidance. now, europe is on the brink, then energy crisis, gas prices continue to hit record high searching to over $1200.00 per 1000 cubic meters. and with winter looming, there are concerns to over how the block is managing the crunch with more his shot it to big ski. 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 a problem that has been years in the making. let's have
6:08 am
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 shall cast excess. it 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 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, prices are set to so by 40 percent, the italian government is announced to package over $3000000000.00 euros to try and
6:09 am
aid that. and then in germany, we also heard last week that one, the power plant had to completely shut up shop. and it's not the 1st time at all to do the same and number of times in september. why? well, because it couldn't get enough co. 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 cannot 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 done is, is last the entire book exposed energy price is currently soaring across the u and putting unprecedented pressure on both energy companies and all our citizens when designing energy and climate policy is we have to ensure their social acceptability
6:10 am
. otherwise we risk their failure. well the e u flatly deny is this. it would jack said it says actually this crisis shows that the problem is that is too much dependence in the u on fossil fuels. and the reality is that the only way to mitigate crises like this in the future is to move harder and faster towards green energy instead of being paralyzed or slowing things down because of the price hike that in the energy sector, we should speed things up in the transition to renewable energy, so the affordable renewable energy becomes available for everyone. was the e u. a scratching its head over what to do. it's also looking potentially for a scapegoat. 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, russia says it's willing to step up to the hour of need of it to you repeat neighbors. and increase the supplies of gas to meet those needs,
6:11 am
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 like he 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 this crisis is. and as they scratching their heads, looking for a solution, there are tens of millions of households who are concerned about this winter is going to bring the difficult choices that they will have to make in order to either heat their homes or feed their families. all the while it is wondering how it will
6:12 am
keep the light so on we mile across the channel. there's another crisis in the balance with petrol stations. they are running dry and angry drivers, forming huge queues from today. the u. k. government is deploying military personnel around the country to try and help ease the fuel crisis. with more his, our correspondent shantia edwards dashti from london is day 10 now of the petrol crisis situation. and the united kingdom is still seeing many cars backed up outside of petrol. stations, people waiting hours to fill up that tanks and even the public transportation is being diverted away to avoid all of this gridlock. things have gotten so bad. now, the minute tree has now been deployed and drafted in to try and get the fuel to the petrol station. i think it's also really important that we can actually call in the military at a time like this for that extra support to give that confidence and have a misha that's there as a precaution, because as i say,
6:13 am
the situation is stabilizing. no one's going to pretend his completely back to normal. i wish it was, but it's getting it that way. so the government says that this shortage is easing the problem is getting better at the prime minister. also reiterating started javits comments just that, that the only thing deployed is simply a precautionary measures. now, around 200 military personnel are getting involved in this operation. will that trying to focus on is london on the southeast region? they argue that these are the worst affected for myself. personally, i'm a little bit worried because in my journey on the way to work this morning, my call was flashing red at me, meaning i need to get to a petrol station. as soon as. 6 possible, but of course i'm not the only one a tool, millions of people are now affected. in fact, it's such a hot topic that discussing the actual situation is as common as discussing the weather here in the united kingdom, which goes to show just how many people affected,
6:14 am
particularly those people working on petrol pump stations. if you're going to feel a 6 or 7 narrative developing creek to cross woman one day your, your flutter, you'd be taking 3 turn. didn't like he normally did. they run a few for look good. so that each other things i just doesn't get sold because nobody comes in. well, the last 10 days have also be defined by a bit of a blame game on the one hand gentleness of being attacked, saying that the media is really reporting on big headlines and then on the individual level as well. people pointing the finger of blame directly at those people panic. a buying out of this tax will put con jonas the blame for simply reporting the news. no. can the public really be blamed for simply buying depleting? results is neither seems remotely irrational, especially the crux of all of this is the very fact that a 100
6:15 am
a 1000 laurie drive is how now has now had a mass exodus leaving the united kingdom. there are many reasons for that, particularly things like breakfast with these laurie drive is staying in the countries that they are from. so this seems to be a direct result of numerous things, particularly, like breck said, and it doesn't seem that it's going to be a quick fix for the united kingdom. that rage what is seen is a lenient sentence for an afghan teenager, he sexually abused to 7 year old austrian go will spend just 10 months behind bars and receive therapy after enticing the child into the basement of an apartment broke and assaulting. ah
6:16 am
ah, we discussed the case and have justice is handed down with a panel of guest. most people sing, it's far too lenient because the guy, even if you spend 10 months in behind bars, he's a huge danger for the public. he has a lot of problems and they cancel the com to solve was in 10 months behind the bar . they said, and he will get psychological treatment after that. people get it, but he will be at lodge when he's out of prison. and i don't sing, he will just be cured because he has a few hours, was a psycho therapist, sexual assault and abuse. are not excusable. they have to be better pre mentioned, there have to be an education in school, but off grownups as well. and i think punishment is wrong way, but punishment alone doesn't test. so we have to have
6:17 am
a more holistic attempt and we really have to prevent that these cases happen again. well, a civil, similar crime did occur in austria in june when 3 afghan asylum seekers rates and killed a 13 year old girl. despite their immediate arrest, one of the suspects they did managed to escape austria and sneak into the u. k. on a boat to refugees under a fake name where he claimed asylum. and as another wave of afghans arrived in austria, the chancellor sebastian curse is taking a tough stance on crimes committed by migrants. authorities have also said that they will forcibly to port those whose requests for silent fail. according to un date of the 2020 austria has more than 40000 afghan refugees, the 2nd biggest number after germany. we also asked our panel about the issue of violence by refugees taught at general, probably a problem. it's especially at my rogue problem. it's also the sort of people that
6:18 am
come, it's not the poor starving rural people coming, but it's people with some cash from the cities. they're mostly comments asylum seekers here. and they often are involved in crimes and petty crimes in our own countries. if you look at the case of migration, 1st of all, if we don't ask the natal states for example, we don't conduct an was like enough german or like in syria, people wouldn't have to leave their countries if people come and live in our. busy countries, 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 can traumatize from wall of countries where there's law there that lead us political oppression, we have to give them some kind of therapy as well. it's not enough just to give
6:19 am
them some money. i'd say i, there's an integration problem. nice to come. well come, 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 crime is related to women as the average australian citizen. and so the problem is not so easy to handle. it's not like we shouldn't instrumental lice the case to say it's just the afghan people, all the migrants. i think we should go deeper still ahead fee. the savvy doesn't says his presence in afghanistan is vital and what the brock is calling a living, social and economic crisis in the country that has a deadly lightening can pull, kills several people, had a funeral. what have that isis from the capital just after the break? when i would think wrong,
6:20 am
i just don't want you to see how it is because of the african, an engagement. it was the trail. ah, when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground. it is driven by a dreamer shaped bankers and those with dares sinks. we dare to ask
6:21 am
ah ah, welcome back and i overnight, several people were killed in a plastic couple 2nd biggest mosque. it's alabama says it has detained 3 people allegedly responsible. meanwhile, the used foreign policy chief insist that the block does need a presence in afghanistan to prevent what it phase is a looming social collapse. afghanistan is experiencing a serious humanitarian crisis, and a socio economic collapse is looming, which would be dangerous for afghans to region and international security. so the question is on, if we should have a minimal e presence on which all member states agree, but when and how we're working on possible options,
6:22 am
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 healthcare, all of materials to burn, to heat their homes with. and the situation is that while a, the eas, coming in international 8th, much of it, many countries are they, boy aid 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 a and given how desperate the humanitarian situation here is that millions on the
6:23 am
verge of hunger end of the cold of freezing as the taliban has said, that essentially these conditional aid office attacks about to a black men and that they won't be pressure you out my advice to the world neighbors, muslims, and particularly afghans is to leave of genest unto afghans. the world cannot build again is done 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 of that name. they wish for destruction, paralysis and damage of these lam cameron of afghanistan. ball aid has been coming into afghanistan. these the bare minimum needed to stave off calamity for another few weeks, perhaps another few months because the war here he's continuing united states and its allies may have withdrawn, have me no longer be them fighting the taliban put patel about his board with isis
6:24 am
. it is a war that is intensifying all over the country. we see evidence of that every day . the explosion on sunday it's cobbled 2nd biggest. mosby is just the latest estimate that even the most secure sites are a vulnerable we saw in the aftermath of that res. overnight raids carried out by the taliban all over the capitol cavil where they were hunting down. i says sells isis cake. operative in other areas of the country we have seen dr. vas we have seen bombings, attacks carried out by isis against the taliban. and the, the thing here is us, aside from causing all the, 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 sits, may use the humanitarian crisis here and i've got to start if the taliban is unable
6:25 am
to deliver, to recruit more desperate people. and that is what perhaps europe and the united states are essentially trying to avoid marine gas. they're, they're in couple now. one of the criminal episodes of evacuation from afghanistan was when a young foot paula fell from a plane while trying to flee. he was seen as one of the countries brightest sporting talents. and a special tournament has been held in his memory. ah and worry was one of many acting. he's trying to flee the country as the plane deigned altitude, he fell to his death. ah, by the saki was more than a brother to me. we trained together for the last 4 years. god bless him. no one
6:26 am
can feel his place in the team and in our house. hello, my kid i am wearing belonged to zaki, but it's my now. he was a better footballer than me. we even called him messy, the entire afghan nation loved him. he was our hero. ah, b with zaki was one of our best players. i wonderful buddy and a strong forward on his team. today they're playing with outside and we can feel the difference with my son. zachary was a national player, a very talented void, but i never came here before this my 1st time and he is not with us today. i missed him so much simpler. a look at world news in brief now and the experts are warning that the volcanic eruption on the spanish island of la palmer is intensifying lava has already destroyed over 900 buildings
6:27 am
and displaced about 6000 people with no casualties. though, reported so far, that is in addition to major road disruption, as well as warnings of toxic gases reaching mainland europe, blaster option on the island took place back in 1971 and lasted for more and 3 weeks. o. protest is of class with police in amsterdam here during a rally against cove with 19 passport scuffles broke out when authorities isolated a group of 50 black clad it demonstrates is from the main march. he rules there do say that people need proof of vaccination. recent recovery or a negative test to enter public venues such as cinemas, restaurants, and places. and in mexico, several 1000 pro life fact of his gavin in the country's capital there, they were protesting against the supreme court resolution. that declared the criminalization of abortion unconstitutional. mexico is one of the largest roman
6:28 am
catholic communities in the world, and she was highly disputed there. so i'll jerry has closed his air space. t french military pains is a ro hope of visas between the countries intensifies. and president micron does seem to have added fuel to the fire to with his comments on the out. cheery in war of independence that was fought against the french. was there an algeria nation before french colonization? that's to question algeria, post 900. 62 is built on a memorial rent that declares france as the whole problem. retentions intensified last week when france reduced the number of these is it grants 2 citizens of several countries including algeria. in response though, the north african nation recalled its ambassador to paris on saturday. now, according to the french president, algeria has totally read written it's official history based on hatred for his
6:29 am
country. we did discuss this with the historian and author gerald horn, and he says that president micron should be more careful with what he says. he has no right to make those comments publicly. he should keep those ideas to himself. it would be as if the leadership and algeria would say that france is ultimately dominated by a clique of billionaires in that democracy in france is a kind of, shall i think that that would be inappropriate comment. but i don't think it would necessarily be appropriate for the algerian leadership to make such a comment. mr. macross, obviously, as noted, is facing a very difficult reelection campaign. he obviously feels that there is a premium and i value to be gained by whipping up anti algerian. sentiment since algerians comprise a significant portion of the immigrant population in france, the french establishment is still exploiting africa. algeria to its credit has
6:30 am
tried to break away from this exploit into the system. and that's one of the reasons why mister mccoy chrome back by the french establishment is now attacking algeria with fennel. and that brings you up to date for now. that said the news rap hair naughty international will have more fee at the top. mm. join me every thursday on the alex salmon. sure. i'll be speaking together for the world politics sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. mm. oh is your media a reflection of reality? ah, in the world transformed.
