Billion Dollar Whale co-author denies Sarawak Report's claims they compromised 1MDB sources - Nation

PETALING JAYA: The co-author of the Billion Dollar Whale said that there was “no agreement” with Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown on the reporting of the 1MDB scandal.

Tom Wright also denied Rewcastle-Brown’s claims that the Wall Street Journal’s (WSJ) reporting on the scandal had compromised the safety of her anonymous sources, and resulted in the arrest of several connected individuals.

Rewcastle Brown had also alleged that Wright had received sensitive 1MDB documents from her source without crediting The Sarawak Report despite promises to do so.

“The answer is no, it’s not true,” Malaysiakini quoted him as saying during a session on Sunday (Oct 7) as part of the Cooler Lumpur festival.

“First of all our reporting processes are completely independent of Rewcastle-Brown’s reporting processes.

“There was no agreement between us as to how we should report together or anything like that,” added Wright.
