Being a whistleblower

This investigation that looks like a psychological thriller reveals what it costs to expose an international scandal.
This is the story of Raphael Halet, an ordinary French citizen who leaked ultra confidential documents to an investigative reporter. They are the source of a planetary scoop: the “LuxLeaks”.
It reveals secret deals from Luxembourg, allowing many international companies to slash their global tax bills while maintaining little presence in the tiny European Duchy.
For many months Raphaël Halet’s dramatic story remained secret. Journalist and film director Benoît Bringer, a member of the PanamaPapers international team, reveals for the first time the incredible pressures Raphael Halet underwent.
