in broadcasting live and direct from our studios in central moscow this is r.t.m. chant honest let's get right you're trying to storm. the occupy movement goes at global with almost a thousand cities across the world witnessing an unprecedented outpouring of public anger against corporate greed and financial mismanagement the largest rally was in rome with over one hundred thousand people marching. and in other news the u.n. warns that syria could be on the verge of a civil war with many in damascus backing president assad called the center continues to grow outside the capital. and ukraine's attempts to clean up its
image before the euro two thousand and twelve football championships turn into a p.r. disaster after animal rights groups accused of the government of burning stray dogs alive. and coming up next it's our documentary on one of the most infamous richest and most powerful criminal bosses in history pablo escobar stay with us for that. the crew kicks its heels and i heard tell for three days waiting for some response or acknowledgement to the request of me taught. and distrust runs deep and they ask about climb. but on the fourth day there's a phone call album marina finally agrees to get together at her house. where the album marina had been asked about his coconspirator during the time he
had been hunted or as she puts it secures it they shared many secrets and to this day she still has the greatest separation for her brother. nobody knows that i've kept all these souvenirs. these all belong to one time i picked them up from his various hiding places. escobar also had a brother thought it was two years old a. video of him from this time is rare but roberto escobar was a key member of the town he would also play an important role in his brother's flight from justice as special as he was accounting and his name was roberto escobar claims to have been among the fifteen people who helped organize the finances of the cocaine empire. before taking a leave album marina had claimed her brother can be reached through a contact in the united states.
something that i would like to speak with. out there is be your own roberto to talk about publicly we need to speak with i mean you you don't need to pay some money i don't know how much that. this is the. eventually a deal is reached with the person we actually want to interview the woman agrees to provide his final number. and a low ceiling all right so. he's going to. french journalist how do you. find yourself and we meet at your office with some of his community. yeah no problem can you tell me where we can actually. go to the last comma service station i'll have someone meet you that evening the thank you very much on whether. the
meeting is to take place in a residential district in central medium we are in a conditional is no cameras. we nonetheless decide to film the meeting anyway. but. don't roberto has no wish to dwell on the days when he was part of the cartel and delve in cocaine although he has agreed to an exclusive deal with hollywood producers to sell his life story. the story of pablo's time on the run is something i'm familiar with. in fact i probably know more about it than most of the. beginning in one hundred eighty three i spent most of my time with pablo we were the best of friends two brothers that were inseparable and we did everything together including during the time when he was in hiding. the remaining fifty
minutes of the interview proved to be less fruitful he doesn't really to tell us though that while public was on the run he was always able to stay in touch. from his presence all robbers are used to phone that he had missed t.v. set to communicate with his brother. and made a phone to my t.v. set i would rip it up and turned it into a telephone. visitors would only see a teeny. little out me to talk with my brother any time. i change my voice and ask him. oh brother how you doing what are you up to the right them. june one thousand nine hundred three one year since i had escaped from the car to draw on a special unit has no idea where he is and he moves around the city under the very noses of the police. the government
decides to tighten the screws. so you see the shia it triples the reward and ask about dead or alive is now worth five billion dollars absolute i said about. a new year. the authorities refine and perfect their electronic surveillance escobar is one of the first to own a cell phone but he knows he has to keep on the move and keep his conversation short to prevent the police from pinpointing his position and. they're going to go to school you know you know one day an american technician i was up on the airplane he tells us he's got a precise position. content he's located the exact hiding place you sites like them and. they and there is no record of counting. it's in mountainous difficult terrain. we
organized a helicopter operation in the utmost secrecy for just a short while later we hear someone warning him on the radio saying. they know where you also go they're on their way. by the time we arrived he thought. it's obvious there's a mole in the unit a traitor who keeps the head of the cartel informed the instant the police are about to swear. a colonel quickly ferreting out if you know trivia when you see a judge or. inform i was a young police. there was no innocent school with current. capital figures of police mogo helicopters he did hang around with us all the time the police station on the radio. the informant was in escobar paid using the money to rent an apartment in this building just behind the barracks for the cia and. he.
soon as this policeman knew an operation was meeting organized he used to run home and then using a radio call in the fossil eskimos left the nazis to talk and code and say things like tell some of the doctor as they used to. live there on their way making straight for you. so when we were heading up towards the target. sometimes see peoples and in past it's the other way. as you know. that the traitor is eliminated a manhunt can resume unimpeded. it's a little you know i joke now target is a guy called el chapo according to our information he's hiding in this area. or was
the terrorists' hands on terrorists who placed on the. front of us and i'm just going to go but i'm going to be honest this is a while but with iris operations and suspects. this is the guy we want to catch tonight. and. there's a complete change of tactics the idea is to isolate escobar by rounding up his key men one by one by your customer or alias and chapal is tonight's target. the operation against a chopper is a success and many others follow the senior members of the cartel are eliminated one knob to the other. escobar is severely weakened so two words the escobar was running without strong.
fear begins to creep in and the predator becomes the prey. and a new enemy begins to emerge the so-called group of the persecuted also know the good even as the bad day. as with criminals who it wants being a limited cartel left for one reason or another and they began to challenge and then fight as. their bosses or to form accomplices of escobar who'd had enough of his paranoia and cruelty. like the police the papers knew all the secret some habits of the leader of the cartel. bloodletting soon starts as the paper has gone down eighty one that's close to the godfather of soul this change the dynamics of this. war now started worrying about his
own family. the past his use the same tactics used by escobar by targeting the families. case and points of the apartment owned by his mother is blood or not at the time ask about his wife and children had been signed nobody has heard of the attack as a. one day they set off a bomb and it ruined a painting by dali which was estimated to be worth five million dollars as goebbels wife was devastated. she says it destroyed the dolly what are we going to do about it. gradually escobar begins to fear for the lives of his loved ones that will be the reason of his downfall. as long as a son and daughter in colombia he cannot relax. he decides to some of them to germany in europe. on the twenty
seventh of november maria victoria on pablo out of amman a well aboard a flight from frankfurt and a police escort and filled by the t.v. crew members. escobar breathes a sigh of relief but although he doesn't know it yet but countdown to his iron hand has already begun should also be slow see his wife and kid the kids leave for a safe country to. their own home but there's no country that once a. plane goes backwards and forwards and eventually returns to colombia no one wanted anything more to do with pablo escobar. on the diplomatic pressure the german governments and the escobar family back home on the twenty nine fiasco bossa back in colombia on the police protection they have no idea they have walked straight into a trap set by u.s. and colombian authorities. tell us
a little they are asserting that once they'd been expelled from germany about back in colombia they'd begin pressuring escobar in a big way. when they land the escobar family is whisked away to a police safe house in bogota. they have become prisoners. at the same time the peppers step up the pressure and attack the hotel with grenades again no one is injured. in his leg but escobar hysterical with worry forgets even the most basic security. probably we're talking every day at six o'clock. on the same frequency that's how we started intercepting his communications. with a special investigation unit is it's the turning point in the battle every man is
mobilized and every means deployed. in front for vocal reconnaissance vehicles a crew of the streets a medium and an effort to locate the godfather as soon as he opens his mouth ok the end will be quickly as we were listening in twenty four hours a day by the time in the search service our units were on full alert ready to intervene whenever a call was intercepted. on the first of december police technicians identify five phone calls made by asco bought from different locations in the city center d.m.v. plainly and c. and it was always on the news calling from a car that was constantly traveling. the police finally figure out want to ask about tricks to avoid being tracked down the fugitive had for months been using a simple but effective ruse that of using one of the city's numerous traps that would drive around nonstop while he made brief calls from his cell phone.
after four days spent listening in we were very tired we thought we'd never be able to track him down. then suddenly on day five we intercept his latest phone call and the amazing thing happens it's a signal from a fixed line so we know he's floating from a house. the first police on site confirm the information and brief their superior officer at once. that was easy in the game so he tells me that's it i am at the house and right in front of it i think i can see him inside it. was near the window with a telephone and. it's a confirmed sighting from the unit that francis led by major.
close up to us in which we were cautious going to dr house the first thing we saw was the taxi which he used to take in that he had a company. yes call talent get going i had talking on the phone and he was up on the second floor . so we was hardest i had my rifle was in front seat we were moving slowly. on absolute silence this was your. back i see him. to stop us and he's right in front of me. you're not there but i don't have a clear shot not of for us but i think it's like that for them and then he turns
around and sees me and he says what's happening and he drops the first pulls out his revolver an open spot. i run upstairs clutching my pistol and i shoot him i'm lazy to minister shoulder for the rest of the day with the don't enlist. yet any policeman behind me takes his rifle and what is a as far as a wonderful scene a spot of you know when he was shooting here right in the temple a bullet goes in here and exits the. cylinders and he suddenly throws himself through the window. i jumped out too which was difficult because back then the windows were much higher. i moved forward to take the gun away from him. when i take the radio call my boss is in the shop. i don't live columbia i want the . dead.
within thirty minutes all one thousand men of the social unit have arrived on the scene. the whole city appears to congregate at the house and at the news of staff some up lord others are in tears. his face hidden the american agent steven murphy makes his way through the crowds of soldiers he wasn't about to let the culmination of sixteen months work go by on recognised everybody's very happy everybody's very exhausted. you just can't imagine the pressure of that we felt had been lifted off our shoulders. much less how the climate national police must follow. one thirty pm on the second of december one thousand nine hundred three ox the end of the largest manhunt in history.
sixteen years after the death of the most wanted man on the planet one mystery remains unresolved what happens in the mating godfathers fost for sure where did he hide the five billion dollars that legend has it he was worth. a year see just honestly i think his family has most of the money because a lot of our lowest about money was ever found the columbia that can if you really have to lose millions the idea and even if he probably didn't know how much exactly even if it was just full of hot flea couples he and his wife and children would have to be multi-millionaires today an argentine other. we want to just check general masses comments. one is our ace the capital of argentina. after a stethoscope was widow area victoria and her two children subtle here in some
conflict they changed identities and blended into the background maria victoria changed her name to maria is about. how it was better known today as sebastian marroquin. it took us more than a week to try to come down he asked about family now that builds in real estate and maria victoria has set up an interior decorating company along with a sob in the heart of palatable a trendy part of the city. where outside and decide to make some phone calls. to the studio good morning. because of us american please he's not in you know when he might be back is he in town i think is on a trip i don't know where exactly is going to board. ok well thanks very much. forced to wait it seems a good time to find out more about the activities of the family in argentina we
spoke to a journalist who has been reporting on the family since they first arrived. if you're going to. let him in on a first date here they started hanging out with the locals in particular on account of the beginning maria victoria and he were just friends you know yeah but then they became lovers monies they bought an apartment and i didn't make any bad love last week. the apartment becomes the center of maria victoria and her love is money laundering operations. going on bia the accountant begins to travel back and forth to colombia karen trunks full of the latest. you know increasingly your luggage has a full possibly contain as much as four hundred thousand dollars between ninety five and ninety nine and barely over four years it's been proved they smuggled in at least two million dollars so there are some estimates that it could have been
more than ten million. but maria victoria's love as soon betrayed the accountant is really only interested in the money he becomes greedy and effectively blackmails mrs s. for no less than five years. in one thousand nine hundred ninety as a dramatic development as the entire escobar family is arrested maria victoria a song from paolo as well as the black male. heir released almost immediately the judges were never able to prove their wealth came from the drugs trade. since stanley accountant's has mysteriously disappeared and maria victoria has never been seen in public. the next move is to head towards escobar office building. the days tick by without years.
by day four we're in our car acting on a tip from one part bloke who's just arrived back in what desirous i would like to meet up. there's no mistaking who his father was they look so similar in profile a cop father son is white the past from his slight. these days he's a successful designer in argentina. we had two hour meeting with the son of the godfather equipped with a hidden camera. the man who's trying to rebuild his life is notoriously shy of the media so our meeting is significant. i call you sebastian or. sebastian. to me as ancient history
that was my life before. now your father built up a considerable fortune what happened to his money where you able to use any of it. the answer is simple. the war cost a huge deal of money. father was immensely wealthy but he stopped dealing in drugs and invested all of his money into that war. the weapons and the manpower cost enormous amounts of money. in the on the cost of the weapons and explosives a considerable amount of money was used to corrupt people. the whole country of. the whole country all of it. i remember very well being in my father's office once i saw an endless stream of important people for example he was inside meeting with an official and outside the policeman scolding him
a keeping guard after that lots of finished they went in to be paid that's the way it always was one day police politicians and i even saw a former president of the republic he would pay off everybody that would say here's a check thanks very much. argentine justice eventually threw up the case but as the only son of escobar there are many who have doubts of where his money came from. you know we're going to cuse of laundering maybe what was the figure about a million dollars over a period of five years. my concern is if it's true then we must be the worst money launderers in history since even trying to unload the money that comes from a cocaine trade. one million dollars is nothing just pocket money for a cup of coffee. so what did
happen to ask about his billions of a number of accounts or buried underground somewhere. or are they just illegible. nobody knows about maybe from this woman maria victoria the medium godfathers widow . she refused to talk with us and the only images we have of these few seconds of the streets and what has areas. she has the key to some of the secrets. but he died of not maybe in the rooftop in one thousand nine hundred three escobar the greatest drug trafficker of all time took some of his secrets to his grave.
