EVENT: The 1MDB story

Hollywood, heists, and the book that can’t be published

Join us as we dive into the murky world of 1MDB, the astonishing story of international fraud which saw billions siphoned from a Malaysian investment fund.

One allegedly major player, Jho Low, used the trappings of fame to legitimise this audacious fraud, surrounding himself with celebrities and bankrolling blockbusters like the Wolf of Wall Street. However Jho Low’s lawyers have threatened the UK publication of a number of books about 1MDB. So to stand up for investigative journalism, we’ll be discussing the scandal itself as well as the threats faced by anti-corruption journalists on the front-line across the world.

On May 15th, join our panel of experts for what promises to be an entertaining evening of drinks and discussion.
