Clare Rewcastle Brown

Editor-in-Chief, Sarawak Report, Investigative Journalist
Malayisan 1MDB Corruption Exposé

Clare Rewcastle Brown is an investigative journalist who has begun a heated international dialogue by publishing accounts alleging corruption occurring in Malaysia. Brown founded the Sarawak Report and Radio Free Sarawak in 2010 to first highlight local deforestation occurring in the Sarawak region of Malaysia. That led her to uncover a system of kickbacks between the logging companies and local officials. In 2013, her investigations turned from deforestation to exposing potential bribery and theft involved in a Malaysian public development fund, 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB). She obtained leaked materials from an employee of PetroSaudi, an investor in the 1MDB fund, which showed that USD 700 million that should have been invested in 1MDB ended up in the personal account of the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Najib Razak.

Beginning in 2008, Adoboli started using the bank's money for unauthorised trades. He entered false information into UBS's computers to hide the risky trades he was making. He also used his personal funds on two spread betting accounts where he lost around £100,000. In 2011, UBS launched an internal investigation into Adoboli's trades. His trades cost the bank USB 2 billion and wiped off USB 4.5 billion from its share price. The trading losses he incurred while trading for his bank were the largest unauthorised trading losses in British history.
