THE INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISTS WHO UNCOVERED IBIZA-GATE

Talk: How do investigative journalists navigate legislation and stories while protecting their sources?

In the work of an investigative journalist, many things are considered before revelations are made. But what does the work actually entail, and how do you navigate legislation, stories and sources? What risks do investigative journalists face when they publish secret footage and cite anonymous sources in their work that aims to expose international corruption? Meet the film’s two protagonists, the two journalists Bastian Obermayer and Frederik Obermaier (Süddeutsche Zeitung), who covered Ibiza-gate, and who were previously behind the revelations of the Panama Papers. Moderated by Frauke Gibner, Politiken.
