Money Trail interview on the Nirav Modi case
Conducting and delivering journalistic illicit finance investigations is often long, difficult and complex. It can even be dangerous. It can take courage to even start researching these stories.
Money Trail is supported by the Dutch Postcode Lottery.
Two trainings will be organized in London (Sept 2018, Nov 2019), two in Abuja, (June 2019, July 2020) and two in Jakarta (Feb 2019, Feb 2020).
In Money Trail Journalismfund.eu offers working grants for mixed teams of African, Asian and European journalists to investigate cross-border illicit financial flows, tax abuse and corruption in Africa, Asia and Europe.
Grants are awarded to journalists solely by Journalismfund.eu, with no input or oversight at any stage from the consortium as a whole.
It is important to keep sources and information during an investigation safe and secure. It is a basic pre-condition for anyone involved in investigative journalism.
Digital records, databases, documents and communication streams are all likely targets. A variety of protection tools, also developed by other organizations, to help security and safety for journalists and civil society activists is available here.
