"Heist of the Century"

"Heist of the Century"

For the past few weeks, Sarawak Report has been running an exposé series on 1MDB. Most prominent of these reports is "Heist of the Century", that received a lot of traction among the public and places a prominent Malaysian financier right in the middle of the web. The exposé series has been used by 1MDB critics and has now propelled into investigations to clear it of the conspiracy surrounding the sovereign wealth fund. We speak to Clare Rewcastle Brown, editor and journalist of the series to get to the story behind the scenes of an investigative effort such as this.
