Profile / Bio: 

Clare Rewcastle Brown is a multiple award-winning British journalist and the founder and editor of the website Sarawak Report, which has come to prominence for challenging wide scale political corruption in Malaysia and its impact on civil and indigenous rights as well as on the environment. Her investigations resulted in the exposure of the 1MDB Development Fund scandal, which revealed kleptocracy by the Malaysian Prime Minister and rocked the global financial community. Malaysia issued a warrant for her arrest in 2015 and requested INTERPOL place her on the international Red Notice list; however, INTERPOL rejected the request and following the election of a new government in May 2018, Malaysia cancelled all charges against her.
