If you’ve been following the 1MDB graft-scandal, chances are you’ve heard about this upcoming book!

The founder and editor of the Sarawak Report, Clare Rewcastle Brown, is going to launch her first book, The Sarawak Report: The Inside Story of the 1MDB Expose this Saturday (8 Sept).

According to Malaysia Kini and The Star, the 528-page book tells the story of how Rewcastle Brown “uncovered the world’s biggest theft”, the infamous 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) scandal, in Malaysia.

It also talks about her encounter with whistleblower Xavier Justo, the tip-offs from the Malaysian authorities, the involvement of Hollywood glitterati and how she was made a public enemy in Malaysia.

“I would say that this is the story behind the investigation into 1MDB told through my eyes. It has been a very exciting and significant few years for me with much to discover, and much of that, sadly, was shocking.”

“I hope to communicate some of the adventures I went through to readers,” she added.

The Sarawak-born journalist had played a key role in uncovering the facts behind the 1MDB scandal, including disclosing the identity of the key man behind the scandal, Jho Low.

Moreover, she reported on the joint-venture agreement between 1MDB and the mysterious PetroSaudi International, which involved illegal money laundering to Low’s company, Seychelles-registered Good Star Ltd.

The series of 1MDB reports had led to a concerted attempt by the previous government to discredit her work, even blocking access to the Sarawak Report website. It was not until the fall of the Barisan Nasional (BN) government in the 14th General Election, that the new government has lifted the ban.

Rewcastle Brown said the book aims to emphasise on the importance of law and order, in this era of globalisation, to protect us from criminals with connections to power.

“This is not just a story about Malaysia or failures by Malaysians. It is about global failure, corruption and many Malaysians were the victims of that, and the same thing is happening to other countries.”

The book launch event will be conducted at the Sheraton Hotel, Petaling Jaya, at 4pm on Saturday (8 Sept). There will also be another book signing session at the Penang Institute, George Town on 13 September, at 8pm.

Will you be getting this book or attending the signing session?
