allegations disclose that the accounting giant is involved in bribery money laundering and the illicit purchase of gold from conflict zones r.t.g. goes down of as more details. the story hidden in the court papers filed by this auditor against his ex bosses could be one of the grandest smuggling scams greed money laundering and back door dealings measured in billions of dollars. is accusing one of the world's biggest auditing firms of covering up the tracks over dubai precious metals megacorp act one. ernst and young for an audit inspectors come to dubai and the first thing they see is a pile of moroccan gold buyers casually bundled up on a desk stacks of gold at a gold refinery could be business as usual except these bars are literally painted silver in order to sneak them into dubai four to five tons of gold gold was
coated silver smuggled out of more cool arriving in dubai declared as gold when the team found the discussed it with with colucci the admitted this is the way of doing business with the with these moral consult lawyers inspectors do some more digging and what they reveal brings us to act two some of the precious metal in colossi scoffers could be blood gold shuffling through papers auditor's discover the refinery was more than happy to shake hands with small mining operations in sudan and the democratic republic of congo apparently colossi asked for no licenses offering cash in hand in exchange for gold proceeds from surge sales in conflict torn countries are known to directly fuel gang wars which are responsible for hundreds of civilian deaths soldiers naam group leaders see in control of the gold mines as a way to money guns and power for forty each other ruthlessly often targeting civilians in the process so ernst and young employees calm through colossus cash
transactions that's when we get to act three apparently the company deals in cash almost as much as in conventional bank tran. that's billions of dollars going into a legal black hole impossible to trace so the auditor's diligently record every failure of the dubai giant but there's no pat on the back for them from the boss we requested a meeting with the babies to get it or when they realized that we're not going to alter our findings or change them they went ahead and. changed it on good lines in such a way that our findings and all for their conclusions will not be made public ernst and young have denied allegations they were in cahoots with colossi group the dubai refinery is still in business saying there's been no material impact on their ability to operate or trade i'm just rehired the man who led the team and expose the alleged wrongdoings says the audit in giant branded him
a troublemaker and sacked him so is blowing the whistle a noble thing or just a falls there and in this saga it's left up to the court. of r.t. . now the luxury swiss resort of divorce is opening its doors to the protests to the participants of the annual world economic forum but going through the twenty eight in guest list you might think this year is more about politics than the economy a record number of g seven leaders are expected to attend and that includes the us president jacqueline booga reports. many were shocked from the start that mr america first would even consider attending a summit whose tagline is creating a shared future in a fractured world but of course according to most reports don't trump has no plans of catering to the globalist atmosphere that the forum boasts and one thread once again used the chance to push forward his own brand of economic nationalism donald
trump would be the first president since bill clinton back in two thousand to attend the conference but it's unclear how warm of a welcome he should be expecting protests have already been seen in switzerland and more expected throughout the week as his visit limbs near and in addition to that an online petition has garnered almost seven hundred thousand signatures asking the president to just stay home the record number of will tell you this is not the only difference to you at this year's forum the issues being discussed will move away from economics and race privilege and religious issues or through indebted to say things that those participating at davos focused on the economic needs. davos big to the zero point one percent of the people they have very little concern about what the rest of the people are getting it's one big club and it's to deal making club again all those saw the little things about you know gay rights equal pay oh that's just
a lot of nonsense and it's for the media to write about when they don't want to write about the hard facts of how the so few own so much should have so many own so little. with all those v.i.p. guests descending on davos this january so has something taurus usually hope for when they're heading to switzerland snow and plenty of it because in just a couple of days around two metres of snow fall covered the whole resort and it's left the community there with a bit of a struggle on its hands local authorities are concerned about the possibility of avalanches saying that they may even attempt an artificially triggered avalanche to downgrade the brits. ok let's go to the u.s. now where the three day government shutdown has finally come to an end after the president signed a bill but the mainstream media is still focusing on the failures of donald trump however most reports ignore the shutdown under the barack obama administration when
the government shut its doors for sixteen days. should have been a day of celebration for president from one year in office the one year anniversary of his presidency but the party he planned at mar a lago is no more at the moment because you're waking up to a government that is shut down this is hard stuff for him this is his first anniversary tomorrow he's got a big party and then he's going out to show the world what a great job he's doing as president scepticism domestic crisis if he was such a great deal maker the government wouldn't be closed today well after three days it looks like a bill has now been signed into law that will keep the u.s. government once again up and running donald trump has gone ahead and signed the bill that will bring the u.s. federal government into motion once again for at least two weeks as negotiations continue regarding the dhaka immigration debate in the lead up to the voting we heard in both the house and the u.s. senate we heard democrats and republicans blaming each other for the shutdown and
now we also want to further illustrate exactly what it means that the u.s. federal government is being shut down. america knows this is that from shutdown i think there's still schumer shutdown so let's get that nice little ring to it doesn't it senate democrats shut down this government a big fat failure and. in
other news this morning russia has been described as the biggest state based threat to the u.k. since the cold war general when it comes to wants more funding he says to bridge the gap between british and russian capabilities with more details not his party point. the arch exponent of this is russia i believe represents the most complex and capable state based threat to our country since the end of the cold war i believe or ability to preempt or respond to these threats will be eroded if we don't match up to them now we cannot afford to sit back when military chiefs are asking for more money for new equipment is pretty standard practice but normally it's retired generals this time around you had the acting head of the army nick carter so risking annoying his paymasters really by saying that he needs more money for the military but the purpose of the speech was just that he was warning of the
dangers of underinvestment in the u.k.'s defense forces and he spoke of the dangers of failing to keep up with the level of russia's military spending and also with what he called russia's our north for dogs and hybrid warfare and one thing that was certainly unorthodox in his speech was this order you clipped take a listen no indication of the scale of the modernization is clear from a three minute video clip i'm now going to show you this was run on russian t.v. a couple of years ago you don't need to understand the russian just simply listen to the tone of the commentary good uses the movie music going to be used you think you the gurus leads to the movie it was playing on stereotypes of what sort of russian sounds like the russian language and his perception that russia may be aggressive and hell bent on world domination and that carter wasn't the first
person to talk about the threat coming from russia to resume a spoke about the same thing in a big foreign policy speech late last year it is also worth pointing out that when they're not asking for more money you cave military chiefs are somewhat more blunt as they about the whole russia thing it's a very different tone. last summer then defense secretary michael fallon he joked that russia is probably jealous about bush's new state of the art aircraft carrier because russia's is so to lack pre-dated and you've also got boris johnson the u.k.'s foreign secretary meeting with his u.s. counterpart here in the u.k. rex tillerson talking about iran north korea and syria they haven't mentioned russia being on the agenda. there now security analyst charles bridge does believe there is some truth to general carter speech there saying the u.k. is armed forces are underfunded there is something of course to what the general
actually says and that is that first of all. the british state of the british military in terms of the number of its personnel the number the amount of its equipment and according to that quitman is at a pitifully low level and so therefore you have to have some sympathy perhaps for this man to forgive me if i'm wrong but it's about money it's not just russia of course we're talking about north korea or iran or the bogeyman that are used for this not withstanding that i mean it's very interesting that we hear that the russian threat today is actually not thousands of miles away but on the doorstep of europe actually the reason for that is because russia has moved its because nature of course has moved much much closer over the last twenty years towards the borders of russia so it's a slightly ironic thing. now north korean pop star who was once believed to be killed by execution to lead the country's delegation of the upcoming winter olympics so here's
here's what people have been saying about redacted in night with the saddest pull on austin the only show i go out of my way to launch a lot of the really packs a punch to sleep yampa is the john oliver of harvey americans do the same we are apparently better than booth as you see people you've never heard of love redacted tonight my president of the world bank paid. me to cheerfully send us an e-mail. when i almost choked seemed wrong but all roads just don't call. me. yet to shape out just to
