Financial crime is rife in the UK, with domestic fraud combining with international money laundering to swamp our underfunded police forces. Experience shows that the best way to successfully prosecute such crime is with inside information, and that means we need whistleblowers. However, our dysfunctional system means whistleblowers are effectively dissuaded from coming forward.
What can we do to change this? Kleptoscope, the Frontline Club's regular discussion of corruption, fraud and offshore skulduggery, is back after a two-year COVID-enforced break, and has a stellar panel of guests to explore the problem, look for solutions, and wonder how likely they are to be implemented.
The event will be chaired as usual by Oliver Bullough, journalist and author of Moneyland and the forthcoming Butler to the World.
