About Us

investigace.cz reports original investigative stories about cross-border organized crime and its impact on the Czech Republic. The website is run by the Czech Center for Investigative Journalism, a nonprofit organization founded by a group of journalists in 2013. We are the sole Czech representatives in the international investigative networks the Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. With help from our international partners, we bring groundbreaking investigations such as the Panama Papers to the Czech media.
Our mission is to inform the public about the influence of international financial crime on politics and the economy in the Czech Republic so that its citizens can hold those in power accountable. Our content is accessible on our website free of charge to anyone. We value journalistic collaboration over exclusivity and quality journalism over rapid publication.
