Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Will Mozambique recover from its $2 billion corruption scandal? | Inside Story” – below is their description.

It has become known as the ‘hidden debt scandal’…and is one of the biggest corruption cases in recent years.

A court in Mozambique has begun delivering its verdict, which is expected to take five days, in the trial of 19 people accused of a wide range of financial crimes, in connection with the $2-billion scheme.

The defendants are mostly former senior government officials – including the son of an ex-president.

So, how will Mozambique move on from this financial crisis?
