Diplomats for Sale is a groundbreaking investigation into the corrupt market in diplomatic passports. Undercover reporters reveal the inner-workings of this secretive trade and find out what it costs and what it takes to purchase a diplomatic passport.
The evidence trail directly implicates two Caribbean prime ministers in corruption.
The investigation reveals through witness testimony, audio recordings and dozens of previously unseen emails and documents how Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit and his political allies received hundreds of thousands of U.S. dollars, which helped fund their previous election campaign in 2014.
In Grenada, the documentary listed some of the wealthy property developers and businessmen who’ve become the country’s ambassadors.
They include Naguib Sawiris, one of Egypt’s richest men and an American conman who secretly recorded himself handing a suitcase with half a million dollars to Grenada’s Prime Minister, Keith Mitchell.
