This is the story of the have-nots and the have-yachts,of the failings of globalisation, and how a tiny rainforest campaign derailed the world’s largest theft and brought down a government... . The Sarawak Report is the stranger-than-fiction tale of how one woman uncovered the world’s biggest theft which, in 2018, brought down the Malaysian government. . Investigating the deforestation of Sarawak, Borneo, and the dispossession of its people, journalist Clare Rewcastle Brown followed a trail ofcorruption that led her to the heart of Malaysian politics and to Prime Minister Najib Razak himself Determined that the public should know the truth, she started a blog, which became Malaysia’s go-to news outlet for information that the government was trying to suppress – and whistleblowers wanted to get out. She was soon running a radio station too. . To nail down absolute proof, Rewcastle Brown criss-crossed the globe and, defying danger, pieced together the evidence of the 1MDB scandal- the theft of billions from the country’s sovereign wealth fund. . Her reporting – exposing the shady dealings of international politicians, finance powerhouses, prominent PR firms, and Hollywood glitterati – convulsed Malaysian politics and reverberated around the world. The US government made its largest ever kleptocracy asset seizure, while banks and bankers fell. . Sweeping in scope, The Sarawak Report provides a jaw-dropping behind the-scenes narrative of Malaysia’s recent turbulent political struggles, revealing, as never before, how government funded cyber-warfare and fake news operate, and, in an era of threadbare mainstream media, demonstrating that epoch-changing investigative journalism is still possible. It is an urgent account of the reality of globalisation – and the astonishing story of how one person made a difference.
