🇺🇸 My Life After 44 Years In Prison | AJ Shorts
 
06:22
Otis Johnson went to jail at the age of 25. When he got out at 69, he rejoined a world that was starkly different from the one he remembered. This is his story. Last year, we met Otis Johnson at a New York City shelter for ex-convicts. Everyone there was trying to get their feet back on the ground. Otis had just got out of prison after serving a 44-year sentence. The last time he had seen his family was May 1975. When we shared Otis's first story of being reintroduced to the modern world, viewers were amazed by just how unfamiliar everything was to him. iPhones, Times Square, jars of pre-mixed peanut butter and jelly ... everything was new or starkly different. INTERACTIVE: My life after 44 years in prison. The story of Otis Johnson His story clearly resonated with people. More than 12 million people watched Otis' story on YouTube, and we wanted to show them what happened next. We went to Asbury Park, in New Jersey, with Otis to try to find them. Reconnecting with family was something he had said he was always interested in doing, but hadn't got round to yet. After all, he was still learning how to navigate the city. He had a small box where he kept old, tattered photos of family members, but that was basically all the information he had on them. "The only address I really have is Asbury Park," Otis told us. So we took the train to Asbury Park not knowing much. But we did have Otis' memory. Once we arrived at the train station and began roaming the streets, small things about his old home slowly came back to him: extended family members, friends, shops. He wanted to find his aunt, Dottie Moore, and some other family members. He said many would probably think he was dead. When we talked to Otis about his relationship with his family, his answers were complicated. He was a member of the Fruit of Islam (the paramilitary wing of Nation of Islam, the Islamic religious movement once famously led by Malcom X) in his younger days. The Nation of Islam's stated goals were to improve the spiritual, mental, social, and economic condition of African Americans. Otis was a devout Muslim who said he helped "clean up the streets" of drug dealers. "We wasn't all bad," he would say. But Otis said some of his family members didn't buy that. He didn't know if they would be angry or happy to see him after all these years away. He had a nervous energy about him as we walked down Pine Street, knocking on doors and asking strangers about Dottie Moore. This final story on Otis Johnson is one of reconnection and reconciliation. It is the story of a man on a quest to reunite with remnants of his past and one, we hope, many can relate to.

🇮🇩 Can disability stop you from being a pro photographer? | AJ Shorts
 
04:11
Dzoel has no hands or legs but doesn't let that get in the way of his love of photography. Achmad Zulkarnain, known as Dzoel by his friends, didn't realise he was different until he was eight years old, when children at school began teasing him about his appearance. "I found a big mirror. That was when I realized I'm different from everyone else," he told Al Jazeera. Eventually, with support from family and friends, he regained enough confidence to go back to class, later graduating from high school and getting a job running an internet cafe. "There was a photography service there. I decided to buy a camera on credit. I learned and learned and learned until I was known as a photographer." Filmed by Al Jazeera's Hassan Ghani.

🇲🇾 Murder in Malaysia | 101 East
 
26:01
Shot, then blown to smithereens with military grade explosives, the 2006 killing of Altantuya Shaariibuu was one of Malaysia’s most sensational murder cases. Even though years have passed since the young Mongolian woman’s death, it is one case that has refused to disappear. If anything, the mystery has deepened. 101 East investigates those who were involved in the case and asks whether the two men convicted of her murder are “fall guys” for others who ordered the killing of Shaariibuu.

🇧🇩 Hacked: The Bangladesh Bank Heist | 101 East
 
26:01
It was a daring raid. Tens of millions of dollars stolen from Bangladesh's central bank via the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, transferred to accounts in the Philippines and then laundered through the Philippine casino system. The money, and the thieves, then vanished. And it was all done online. In this comprehensive investigation spanning several countries, 101 East examines one of the biggest bank robberies in modern times, to find out how cyber-hackers infiltrated the global banking system, and got away with it. The crime stunned the then-governor of Bangladesh Bank, Atiur Rahman. "It was like a terrorist attack, into the central bank," he says. "I couldn't believe it ... because nothing like that ... ever happened." The robbery prompted investigations in the Philippines, Bangladesh and by the FBI. It revealed weaknesses in the supposedly secure global money transfer system known as SWIFT, which banks use to move billions of dollars daily between themselves. The heist also exposed the murky banking system of the Philippines, where some of the world's toughest bank secrecy laws make the country vulnerable to potential corruption and money laundering. And it drew attention to the country's casinos, which are exempt from anti-money laundering laws, and not required to report suspicious transactions. 101 East exposes how cyber-hackers got away with one of the biggest bank thefts in history, robbing Bangladesh's central bank of more than $80m. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/

🏏 Cricket's Match Fixers - Al Jazeera Investigations
 
54:00
Al Jazeera's Investigative Unit exposes the global scale of match-fixing in cricket. Our undercover investigation reveals how criminal gangs bribe players and officials to fix matches and parts of matches – and make millions from betting on guaranteed outcomes. In secretly filmed meetings, we expose criminals who target the fast-growing Twenty20 tournaments and Test matches, the highest level of the international game. We film international players agreeing to fix matches and show how spot-fixes appear to have been carried out at Test matches involving some of the world's leading teams. The 18-month investigation also reveals how a head groundsman was paid by criminals to doctor the pitch for two Test matches, allowing them to control and bet heavily on the result. And we expose detailed plans to set up a Twenty20 cricket tournament, involving former international players, purely for the purpose of match-fixing. Since this documentary was completed, Jeevantha Kulatunga has contacted Al Jazeera. He denies any involvement in match-fixing and says Al Jazeera's allegations are "false" and had been "deliberately used to tarnish my image and reputation as a cricketer and coach".

🇲🇾 Anwar Ibrahim: Malaysia's New Dawn | 101 East
 
21:16
“Long live Anwar! Long live Anwar!” Deafening chants ring out through the warm night air as the massive crowd in the Malaysian capital gathers to witness history in the making. The crowds are out in force to see Anwar Ibrahim - who for so long, has been behind bars. Now pardoned by the King, the once high-flying politician is finally back in public and back in the political arena at this defining moment in his country’s history. "Now there is a new dawn for Malaysia. I must thank the people of Malaysia. Malays, Chinese, Indians, Kadazans, Iban. Entire spectrum of our Malaysians, regardless of race and religion who stood by the principles of democracy and freedom. They demand change and it is our duty now to ensure that this mandate given to Pakatan Harapan will honour this commitment," Anwar told supporters the night of his release from prison. Anwar would still be languishing in jail if it wasn’t for a stunning election result in Malaysia. One that saw a seemingly untouchable Prime Minister - Najib Razak - rejected by voters and now banned from leaving the country. Najib now faces a potential prison sentence of his own with an investigation into a multi-billion-dollar corruption scandal. According to Mahathir Mohamad: "Yes, certain heads must fall. We found that some people were aiding and abetting a prime minister (Najib Razak) which the world condemns as a kleptocrat." In his 9 years in power, Najib held a tight grip on his country, controlling Malaysia’s media, the judiciary and targeting and imprisoning his opponents and critics. Anwar and the new coalition government promise to change all that. But while his party is in government for the first time, Anwar does not yet have a seat. The man who is currently in charge, is his former boss and former foe, Mahathir Mohamad. Mahathir and Anwar have history. Anwar was once Deputy Prime Minister to the 92-year-old but after a falling out, Anwar was sacked and then jailed on sodomy and corruption charges. Mahathir said Anwar was ‘morally unfit to govern the country’. But times have changed. Anwar made an incredible political recovery, almost leading the Opposition to victory in 2013 elections. But he was jailed again in 2015 for sodomy charges while Najib was Prime Minister. While in jail, his health deteriorated and he spent the last few months in hospital, where he watched the election results unfold. Al Jazeera was at the hospital with Anwar and his family, as he prepared to go to the palace to receive a royal pardon from Malaysia’s King. Now cleared of all wrongdoing, Anwar’s political career has been resurrected and he can return to national politics by winning a parliamentary seat. Mahathir promises to hand over power to him within 2 years. As Malaysia faces a new dawn, will Anwar finally rise to lead his country? 101 East goes behind the scenes of Malaysia’s new dawn. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: https://www.aljazeera.com/

🇮🇩 Indonesia's Most Polluted River | 101 East
 
25:51
For generations, Indonesia's Citarum River has provided fish to eat, irrigation for rice fields, and fresh water for drinking, washing and cooking for the millions who live along its banks. But today, it's known as the most polluted river in the world. The river supplies water to textile factories that make clothes for some of the biggest fashion brands in the world - H&M, Gap, Uniqlo. It also provides an open sewer for the factories to dump toxic chemicals, thousands of litres at a time, creating an ecological disaster. Fishermen used to make a living from the Citarum, but now the only thing they catch is plastic. "There are no more fish here, because the water is too polluted. There are none left," says Rudi, who now spends his days collecting plastic bottles. Each day he picks up more than 50kg of plastic. Nour, a mother of two young children, uses water from the river to wash clothes, do the dishes and wash vegetables. "The colour of the water - sometimes it's black, sometimes it's red," she says. Nour says her two children are always sick. She blames the river. "The oldest has nausea, no appetite and headaches. The last time we took him to the doctor, he told me he had the symptoms of a liver problem." 101 East exposes the toxic state of the Citarum and investigates the human cost of Indonesia's poisoned river.

🇺🇸 🇰🇵 Why Singapore? | Al Jazeera English
 
01:48
Here is why Singapore was chosen as a location for the Trump-Kim summit. US President Donald Trump ...and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ...are set to meet in Singapore on June 12. But why Singapore? It was chosen with two things in mind: ...security and neutrality. It’s one of the few countries to have diplomatic relations ...with both the US and North Korea. It’s also a popular location for major summits ...including a 2015 meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping ...and former Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou. Singapore is also more secure than other proposed locations ...and has strict laws that limit public demonstrations. The country is bearing all security-related expenses for the summit … saying “It’s a cost we’re willing to bear to play a small part.” (Source: Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen) The influx of visitors for the meeting comes during a time of peak business. (Source: South China Morning Post) Singapore is preparing for the start of the two-month annual “Great Singapore Sale”. The two leaders are set to meet at the Capella hotel ...on the resort island of Sentosa ...which means “peace and tranquillity” in Malay. It’s also a short drive from Singapore’s flagship golf course ...in case the two leaders need a little bonding time to seal the deal.
