against corruption has been barred from bodies those are the headlines are back with a new thirty minutes to stay with us here on al-jazeera. me for a great song is an icelandic destroying he's a venture capitalist i suppose who makes. a lot of money through speculative projects he began he used commercial career in ninety ninety two he went from being a licorice factory entrepreneur jeans importer export. to write in papa new guinea as a publisher now. tangent dense all sorts of leap from one unconnected industry to another. he's been involved in
a hugely controversial publishing deal only government then sets out he owned company which handles to see states. the first red flag was clearly raised by the government. becoming agency. and i found ten illegal contracts in my nomes of the two traced the money from the deceased to states. i don't think it was staged joe was aware of what he was actually fighting against . functions idea is a dream is that i work in the say it's
a paper dream that we're not even sure it's kind of it's just too much he hasn't developed such things in his life and. if. so when adults are going to blow them. i'm not there be. let me toss them and by side i'm called but i want them to. and i want one by more law but i'm not negotiate. company. for how best value reset the lemieux me. give you a sense of what you gen one zero recently maligned let me. go by name don't you buy
the ones i'd like to go inside what i want i. want so you build a. more. now let me go to ground zero you are asking too much. so be it. someone has to stand up and make sure the government recognizes this you and wolf. international laws governing she down long human being. who play your best opera you people are. people you become come come listening player. not a man become a consumers who have to this is where you guys belong. to . the company actually approached
me. trying to think when it is. twenty end of two thousand and thirteen just by chance so so the company c.e.o. on the plane they said would you consider helping with the relocation exercise i said no. it was to have been bought out. i'll wait until we see what happens. but i decided to start working on because of the national court decision people were hoping a company would actually build houses and things but there's no obligation to tell them really the company is not obliged to anything you were living on the land that the court has now said he longs to them and i'm not going to question the court decision it belongs to. but there what has been done so far is more than has been given to any other really good person around his city hopefully it can start to set a standard.
of pop in again in government published press release. back at. the government felt it was more than appropriate. and these are at home a fifty fifty in this developed state we're now fifty sixty partners in this project. now studies financial interest in st john's songs and i had just as much reason to teach our songs as a company and yes a lot of company they had the means of violence to do that. if they find they are just by the head of the company that. led to live by the others the government of the. so that's the real issue that's what a bill is
a low profile i just don't want to let it illicit. in terms of a lot of stuff. and it just. so i'm trying to do so. i don't really want to expose myself. to listen a little. to have that little. or can you say i say to him. well your now political dissent. you are challenging a state project and you are a threat to your government and they want to do you harm they can very well even to be killed. so my advice to him was he should seek asylum. that would be only
way of guaranteeing the safety but of course joe won't seek asylum because it will just continue the struggle. has a police harassment. we're. going to see was a significant threat. to the community has to be very. sick and. that's why we are afraid after. twenty five. let's let's get to this case. over two hundred paga hill residents were relocated to six mile lisa he means to
free up space for developer paga hill limited taking initiative the company went out of its way to purchase land at six mile to accommodate those affected by the development c.e.o. goodman do fredrickson has gone through a challenging times to get to the present stage what has been achieved through our cargo community is a proof that harmonious resettlement can be achieved in publishing in the head of united nations and trivedi gave his vote of confidence to the company for its human rights approach the first time. a national corporation like this supports the resettlement of communities it is the first time it has happened in pop when you get in my experience dame carol kidu was forgiving clarifying she was simply standing up for the settlers from a human rights perspective maine a long journey i had journey and it is a time to celebrate. you have come a long way with
a company that has shown that it. is that means the idea one community. one day i am a little in his one time a little company because when i get money the nice. i'll pay more ten thousand and i seen. this money and wait wait. wait they just come in and i say we'll give you this much she smiled. faintly occasions are these. just to be followed. this is six miles every hour. development companies want to relocate us grow grow grow grow grow for. water program the folks.
it's not perfect but i think it's been a genuine attempt by the company to do a really something that's useful and perhaps they're being too ambitious. quite frankly and in the company he is being even over ambitious of about what they want to achieve for the people who've been moved. because you know this is. a stage where you can end up creating a dependency mentality. in your company and. you see. a federal issue. over fight ever say. that
i'm going back. over fire without breaking. a deal though is there any. estella fight in. the morning all that are. going on something you know possibly not him so once you month winning indiana you surveillance in this lion place you see the problem here . you got house you got family or picking him or money on going to school you go walk and this is home. this is what we are fighting for. you got to go but if he doesn't tell me no one will have. you if i go here i live my awesome human being you must have a place most in down so i was only like you see the lord love us even though not
about us only mustered in this happiness question if you mean open to me this is the bottom line we've got no fight go to dawson give up five thousand give him a ten thousand. life no man sinned down no mine we have to be treated fairly just like any other human being. so now i must leave me. so bored i. find the royal. family. going to put up with it all.
that's where they came in. they came then they do it. they kicked joe's way. and they were pointing guns at him and auditing him to come out of the house. and i stood somewhere here. the policeman got up and go to any beach he can drink it was trying to hit the community residents here anybody that comes close at their job is just gone and you can you know of your own unit was so right at the end we told him you want me you want irish to unite as one of us you want to do you need to all of us and we only came together in.
that little to do well i'm going to let you know we're going to talk to you and he was going to want to kind of to. know that he would not going to be goes out of any of them and have been because i want to know what's not that's very good of. you i met your. regular guy mark duggan mom i got to come on up i went to meet up i'm going to come in come. out of my i mean i'm going now i'm gone now you won't let them know me i'm about to knock them out with them on the back of my you would you know.
looked awful by the whole bottle to show and he. just went off. by did me no need not. or would be gone by then we'd know or begin it now or bought a merry beginning or buy you imagine i've been prevented as a member of the u. by demon a mob scene i'm missing now groaned as the other me got him mama got him big mama got him in a help. in both sides of the whole game became so unwilling to listen and compromise and and
if people feel it's been just to stand well you know progress doesn't stop and whether one likes the progress or not it goes ahead in every country and that's at's what's happening there. may be discontinuous that he lives on for the small people like me in one for the. leaders. and then to lead us willis and then. in another question i don't really know how i can answer that in a way that is you know it doesn't that is the way it happened is the way it. into. i would have done it differently will be there he probably had just picked if i'd known what was that happened i probably would have caught him as i would have if it happens all over the city all the time to me.
will be thanking the man at the court again. when i stand for what his fate in the world i believe in. you can obesity with me. people might see that against good news i'm scared by the tools as well as then i've been fined for what is right. i mean if i could live if i don't do it who is going to do it. if i start thinking negatively. definite for me so what i'm doing knows i have to think positive i have to be brave. and i have to because i put my hand up i have to i have to be. that someone that
