The Documentation Center "" in English

The domain address "" (English: "unearth the facts" or "bringing to light") also symbolizes the idea of this virtual Documentation Center:

  • Important investigations (many of which also received awards), reportages, stories and topics are presented
  • How the stories and the topics continued? What was their impact? What did they change? The story behind the story is also being told.
  • It is shown the particular importance of so-called whistleblowers and informers. Whistleblowers draw the attention of the public and the media e.g. on risks or dangers.

We start this section with 2 reports:

Rudolf ELMER: against tax evasion and Bankhaus Julius Baer

He became known worldwide in February 2008: together with the WikiLeaks platform, which nobody knew before. A common 'birth hour' so to speak. Rudolf ELMER had published documents on the previously unknown disclosure platform that proved how the offshore banking of the Swiss bank Julius BÄR on the Cayman Islands provided financial shelter for drug barons, tax fugitives and corrupt politicians. The bank had the platform blocked by California court ruling. WikiLeaks thus became known overnight. Just like Rudolf ELMER, who had just really started his fight against tax evasion and banking secrecy.
