Yemen: The Price of Disclosure

In April 2019, using open-source intelligence and secret government documents, a team of journalists at the new French investigative outlet Disclose published a scoop on French arms sales to Yemen – as a result of which they faced harassment by French military intelligence and now a possible jail sentence. Geoffrey Livolsi, Aliaume Leroy and Tom Flannery, the team behind the story, discuss with Iona Craig their investigation and its consequences.
