Description

Al Jazeera exposes a $1.5bn money-laundering plot, bribery, theft and fraud in paradise. President Abdulla Yameen is accused of receiving cash in bags filled with up to $1m, so much that it was "difficult to carry", according to one of the men who delivered the money. The story is told through data obtained from three of the vice president's smartphones and hundreds of confidential documents. It also features secretly recorded confessions of three men who embezzled millions and delivered the stolen cash on the orders of the president and his deputy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15N9K3wXh0Y http://www.aljazeera.com/investigations/stealing-paradise/
