How to Become an OCCRP Whistleblower

Have information that could expose wrongdoing? Want to blow the whistle on corruption? We need you — and we’re committed to keeping you safe.

As investigative reporters, our job is to hold power to account, but we can’t do that without evidence. If you have access to documents proving corruption, crime, or abuse of power, please send them to us. We take the most careful precautions to keep sources and whistleblowers anonymous.

At OCCRP, we can’t arrest people. We can’t indict them. But we can shine a light on the corrupt, the thieving, the greedy, and the heartless. We can fight for equal and fair resources for all. We can separate civil society from uncivil society. It’s our job. Please help us to do it better.


SecureDrop is a secure, encrypted system that allows anyone to send information and documents to OCCRP journalists. It relies on Tor anonymity software to protect the sender’s identity and location by masking computer IP addresses. The SecureDrop servers are under the physical control of OCCRP, and submitted content is decrypted with a computer that is not connected to the internet. SecureDrop is a service of the Freedom of the Press Foundation.
