Undercover media collaboration behind exposure of international financial fraud

For almost a year and in deepest secrecy, Danish and German journalists have worked together to reveal the very core of a tax-refund scam amounting to at least 55 billion euros, reported in breaking news last Thursday by DR, Yle and SVT along with 14 fellow international media outlets. What this clearly shows is that international cooperation is the way forward for investigative journalism, says one of the journalists behind the DR documentary “The Men Who Robbed Europe” (Mændene, der plyndrede Europa).
