We're some of the journalists behind Suisse Secrets, one of the biggest investigations into Swiss banking. Ask us anything!
This is the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), a global network of journalists who recently published one of the largest-ever investigations into the world of Swiss banking. It's called Suisse Secrets.
The project is based on a leak of 18,000 Credit Suisse accounts obtained by German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung over a year ago. Our German colleagues then shared the records with OCCRP to help coordinate the reporting effort, which has received contributions from 163 journalists from 48 media outlets across 39 countries.
Suisse Secrets does more than just raise questions about a specific bank. It reveals how Swiss law allows institutions like Credit Suisse to hide poor institutional compliance for many years behind a veil of secrecy.
From u/occrp, we have Co-Founders Drew Sullivan and Paul Radu, Deputy Editor-in- Chief Julia Wallace, Engagement Editor Charles Turner, and the Coordinator of Suisse Secrets, Antonio Baquero.
Joining us from Süddeutsche Zeitung is investigative journalist u/BastianObermayer.
We'll be answering live from 12pm until 2pm EST
