How to look for a dictator’s loot
How do dictators and corrupt politicians loot government coffers? How does the global financial sector "facilitate" this, and how can we uncover all that cash? That's the subject of a Centre for Investigative Journalism/London School of Economics (LSE) seminar on 20 October.
Global Witness campaigners Robert Palmer and Anthea Lawson will look at the banks holding the Gaddafi regime's state assets and other case studies. Admission is free, and it's at Saif al-Islam Gaddafi's alma mater, the LSE, Clement House, Aldwych, London WC1 from 6.30-8.30. Details: www.tcij.org/events/loot
