UBS Whistleblower, FR
Stéphanie Gibaud wrote the book Whistleblowers: The Man Hunt (2017) with an introduction by Julian Assange. In 2018, she was a jury member of the GUE/NGL Award in honor of investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. She will also be a jury member in 2019.
As a Public Relations specialist, if I had shredded the documents UBS suddenly asked me to destroy in 2008, I could have risked prison. I was working for UBS Marketing Department and had absolutely no idea of the scope of the documents, which I was supposed to get rid of. Searches were taking place; I refused to be part of illegal activities & blew the whistle internally. When in a weakened state because of the harassment I was suffering at UBS, I was targeted by the French state in 2011 and, constraint by the law, had to communicate confidential information to the French Ministry of Finances, which have widely helped to identify numerous offshore bank accounts. Stéphanie Gibaud
brings together people from around the world who have been part of global investigations and leaks, have blown the whistle on corporations, been put on trial, and who have taken severe personal risks to confront hidden money and power.
