Telia Sonera: How To Track Corruption Across Borders

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This case study in international cooperation was a collaboration between Swedish Public TV and numerous journalists abroad, revealing how telecom giant Telia Sonera bribed hard-line dictatorships to get access to new virgin markets in Eurasia. Millions of dollars were paid to front companies for the dictators families from Telia Sonera and their competitors. To date more than one billion dollars have been traced to the deals -- one of the biggest corruption cases in history now investigated by police in over ten countries.

The trio Sven Bergman, Joachim Dyfvermark and Fredrik Laurin was awarded the Daniel Pearl Award for the investigations. The panelists will explain their methods and the tricks and trade of international cooperation.
