Who is Kristof Clerix?
Kristof works as an investigative journalist for Knack. He has been monitoring the shady world of the intelligence services for the past fifteen years. He has published two books about the activities of foreign spies in Belgium. National and international media regularly call on him for his views on espionage affairs.
Kristof is one of the three Belgian members of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), which is a cooperative of over 190 investigative journalists from 65 countries. ICIJ became world famous because of LuxLeaks and SwissLeaks, which represent two of the most remarkable pieces of journalism in recent years. He thus played a role in the publication of Swissleaks and Luxleaks, and the Panama Papers in 2016, which highlighted people and companies that exploited exotic tax havens. In 2015, the LuxLeaks investigation was awarded the prestigious Belfius Persprijs. As a result, Clerix and his colleagues were invited to the Belgian and European parliaments to testify on the LuxLeaks affair. He has given countless lectures about espionage in the past, including at a VUB study day about the intelligence services, which was also attended by the FBI and State Security.

Kristof Clerix had us on the edge of our seats with his fascinating lecture. We were very surprised to get our hands on former TOP SECRET documents from the CIA in New York. I would definitely recommend him to everyone!
