Independent review clears FT reporters of collusion
In July, the Financial Times announced that it had appointed law firm RPC to conduct an independent review into allegations that FT investigative reporters had engaged in collusion with investors in German fintech company Wirecard this year.
After an extensive review, RPC has found that the evidence does not support any claims of collusion between the FT reporters and investors trading in Wirecard shares.
“I am satisfied that there is no foundation to support the allegations levelled against our reporters by Wirecard. We stand by our journalism,” said Lionel Barber, editor of the Financial Times, in a statement.
