Clare Rewcastle Brown

Sarawak Report
Investigative Journalist & Editor
Malaysia
Clare Rewcastle Brown is a 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 the impacts 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 grand kleptocracy by the Malaysian Prime Minister; rocked the global financial community; helped put the off-shore finance industry on the run and embarrassed some of the most famous figures in Hollywood, Vegas and New York. This also exposed the East Coast Railway plot to artificially inflate the cost of the mega-project in a desperate attempt to pay off 1MDBs debts.
Fortune Magazine named her one of the World’s 50 Most Influential Figures in 2016; she was named one of Britain’s Women of the Year 2016. In 2013 she received the International Press Institute’s Pioneer of Media Freedom Award; in 2014 she received Queensland University’s Communication for Social Change Award and in 2018 the Guardian Award by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners . 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list, however INTERPOL rejected the request and following the defeat of Najib in the May 9th 2018 election Malaysia rescinded the warrant.
