Independent journalist Clare Rewcastle Brown, at the risk of her safety and without the protection of a news organisation, has exposed the flow of billions of public funds from 1MDB. Sarah Hofmann of Fraud Magazine interviews Rewcastle Brown.

Rewcastle Brown’s real story doesn’t fully begin until 2005 when she returned to her birthplace of Sarawak in Malaysia. She was interested in the ongoing, widespread deforestation there and its effect on the native people of the region. As she dug deeper into who was profiting from the destruction of the jungle, she found corruption that began in the local level and climbed all the way up to the national government.
