Gibaud Deltour

Stéphanie Gibaud, Antoine Deltour

From the European Parliament:

“Three whistle-blowers: Edward Snowden, a computer expert who worked as a contractor for the US National Security Agency and leaked details of its mass surveillance programmes to the press; Antoine Deltour, a former Price Waterhouse Coopers auditor who revealed secret tax rulings with multinational companies in Luxembourg to journalists; and Stéphanie Gibaud who uncovered tax evasion and money laundering by UBS AG.”

By way of background about this prestigious prize:

“The Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought is awarded each year by the European Parliament. It was set up in 1988 to honour individuals and organisations defending human rights and fundamental freedoms.”

We have have written about Deltour’s case of late; read more about Gibaud’s case here. An excerpt:

“I didn’t know that the information in my possession was sensitive. I turned to my superiors in the bank. They told me that I was tired, that I should take some holiday, that I didn’t have all the facts. . . They harassed me in order to break me.

Good luck to ’em.
