The first Kleptoscope of 2018 focusses on the price paid by those who expose grand corruption, and asks what we in Britain can do about it
At the Frontline Club’s seventh Kleptoscope, hosted as usual by journalist Oliver Bullough, Serious Fraud Office director David Green will talk about how the SFO works, and what might lie ahead for the investigation of fraud and corruption in the UK post-Brexit. He will be joined by Camilla de Silva, who led a key strand of the SFO’s investigation into Rolls-Royce and was recently rewarded with the Bar Council’s Award of Employed Barrister of the Year.
On the eve of a Downing Street summit aiming to challenge cross-border organised crime and corruption, we will be joined by OCCRP co-founder and editor Drew Sullivan and others to discuss how best to report on – and combat – transnational organised crime and corruption, with a particular focus on the London link and the recent Panama Papers leaks. We will be asking what the role of transparency and government data is in combating corruption, and what role journalism can play in putting a stop to it and bringing those accountable to justice.
