Le lanceur d'alerte est une catĂ©gorie juridique nouvelle. De plus en plus d'États europĂ©ens, mais aussi d'autres continents, cherchent Ă  mettre en place des dispositifs protecteurs des lanceurs d'alerte. La loi française tente de dĂ©finir un statut pour les lanceurs d'alerte. Les institutions europĂ©ennes, que ce soit le Conseil de l'Europe ou l'Union europĂ©enne, apportent aussi leurs pierres aux rĂ©flexions en cours sur un sujet dont les contours restent encore mal dĂ©finis. L'objet de cet ouvrage est de proposer une dĂ©finition de cette notion de "lanceur d'alerte" et de faire le point sur les avancĂ©es lĂ©gislatives Ă  ce sujet. Cet ouvrage synthĂ©tique s'adresse Ă  la fois aux praticiens et Ă©tudiants, ainsi qu'Ă  tous ceux qui s'intĂ©ressent Ă  la reconnaissance de ce nouveau statut.

Les lanceurs d'alerte menacĂ©s. L'Ă©quipe des deux premiers tomes de Menaces - Attaques sur la capitale et Tel le PhĂ©nix - se retrouve, dans ce troisiĂšme et dernier volet de la trilogie, pour s'attaquer au monde de la finance qui s'enrichit de la fraude, de l'Ă©vasion fiscale et du blanchiment d'argent, grĂące Ă  l'existence des paradis fiscaux... Parfois, des salariĂ©s de ces systĂšmes dĂ©lictueux qui spolient les États deviennent des lanceurs d'alerte et rĂ©vĂšlent ces pratiques scandaleuses ; c'est leur combat que Jean-HervĂ©, FrĂ©dĂ©ric et Franck vont soutenir. Mais il n'est guĂšre du goĂ»t des profiteurs que ces informations s'Ă©bruitent, et ceux-ci tenteront, coĂ»te que coĂ»te, de faire taire les gĂȘneurs. La lutte s'annonce rude et c'est grĂące Ă  leur tĂ©nacitĂ© ainsi qu'Ă  l'appui de journalistes d'investigation et de membres du gouvernement que les trois collĂšgues permettront Ă  quelques-uns de ces lanceurs d'alerte de mener Ă  bien la mission qu'ils se sont fixĂ©e, au pĂ©ril de leur vie... Dans ce troisiĂšme tome original et passionnant, l'auteur a su habilement mĂȘler rĂ©alitĂ© et fiction. Il Ă©voque les dĂ©rives actuelles du monde tout-puissant de la finance, l'immoralitĂ© et la violence d'individus asservis Ă  leur soif inextinguible de profit, qui nuisent profondĂ©ment Ă  l'Ă©quilibre planĂ©taire... EXTRAIT À l’USI, la soirĂ©e se dĂ©roulait bon enfant et chacun avait son idĂ©e pour rĂ©former le monde et dire ce qui n’allait pas, les Panama Papers occupaient une grande place des discussions car cette affaire des Panama Papers dĂ©frayait l’actualitĂ© en rĂ©vĂ©lant au grand jour les exactions de puissants de ce monde qui accumulaient des fortunes colossales, avec la complicitĂ©, pour ne pas dire la bĂ©nĂ©diction de cabinets d’avocats, de quelques banques – et pas des moindres – et l’asile de ces paradis fiscaux contre lesquels les pays prĂ©tendent lutter en se contentant de prendre quelques “mesurettes”. L’ambiance Ă©tait dĂ©tendue ; les discussions allaient bon train et les Panama Papers y occupaient une grande place car chaque participant connaissait au moins une personne concernĂ©e par cette affaire, mais une brigade d’avocats zĂ©lĂ©s devait s’activer depuis longtemps pour blanchir chacun de tout soupçon en lui demandant de jurer, la main sur le cƓur, son innocence, exactement comme – vous en souvenez-vous ? – Ă  l’AssemblĂ©e nationale, il n’y a pas si longtemps. Ce ministre des Finances français n’avait-il pas annoncĂ© qu’il allait protĂ©ger les lanceurs d’alerte ? Pourtant, il n’était pas intervenu quand l’un d’eux avait Ă©tĂ© condamnĂ© par notre voisin luxembourgeois lors du scandale des “LuxLeaks”, pas plus qu’à la rĂ©vĂ©lation des “Offshore Leaks”, des “SwissLeaks” ou des “Football Leaks”... À PROPOS DE L’AUTEUR NĂ© Ă  KernĂ©vel en 1950, Firmin Le Bourhis vit et Ă©crit Ă  Concarneau en Bretagne. AprĂšs une carriĂšre de cadre supĂ©rieur de banque, ce passionnĂ© de lecture et d’écriture s’est fait connaĂźtre en 2000 par un premier ouvrage intitulĂ© Quel jour sommes-nous ?, suivi d’un second, Rendez-vous Ă  Pristina, publiĂ© dans le cadre d’une action humanitaire au profit des rĂ©fugiĂ©s du Kosovo. Connu et reconnu bien au-delĂ  des frontiĂšres bretonnes, Firmin Le Bourhis est aujourd’hui l’un des auteurs de romans policiers bretons les plus apprĂ©ciĂ©s, avec vingt-huit enquĂȘtes dĂ©jĂ  publiĂ©es. Il est Ă©galement l’auteur d’essais sur des thĂšmes mĂ©dicaux et humanitaires. Ses ouvrages sont tous enregistrĂ©s Ă  la bibliothĂšque sonore de Quimper au service des dĂ©ficients et la totalitĂ© de ses droits d’auteur est versĂ©e Ă  l'action concernant les trois maladies neuro-dĂ©gĂ©nĂ©ratives que sont Alzheimer, Parkinson et la sclĂ©rose en plaques, qui lui tient particuliĂšrement Ă  cƓur.
The Art of Revolt

The Art of Revolt

Edward Snowden, Julian Assange, and Chelsea Manning are key figures in the struggles playing out in our democracies over internet use, state secrets, and mass surveillance in the age of terror. When not decried as traitors, they are seen as whistleblowers whose crucial revelations are meant to denounce a problem or correct an injustice. Yet, for Geoffroy de Lagasnerie, they are much more than that. Snowden, Assange, and Manning are exemplars who have reinvented an art of revolt. Consciously or not, they have inaugurated a new form of political action and a new identity for the political subject. Anonymity as practiced by WikiLeaks and the flight and requests for asylum of Snowden and Assange break with traditional forms of democratic protest. Yet we can hardly dismiss them as acts of cowardice. Rather, as Lagasnerie suggests, such solitary choices challenge us to question classic modes of collective action, calling old conceptions of the state and citizenship into question and inviting us to reformulate the language of critical philosophy. In the process, he pays homage to the actions and lives of these three figures.

As a private banker working for the largest bank in the world, UBS, Bradley Birkenfeld was an expert in Switzerland’s shell-game of offshore companies and secret numbered accounts. He wined and dined ultrawealthy clients whose millions of dollars were hidden away from business partners, spouses, and tax authorities. As his client list grew, Birkenfeld lived a life of money, fast cars, and beautiful women, but when he discovered that UBS was planning to betray him, he blew the whistle to the US Government. ​The Department of Justice scorned Birkenfeld’s unprecedented whistle-blowing and attempted to silence him with a conspiracy charge. Yet Birkenfeld would not be intimidated. He took his secrets to the US Senate, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Internal Revenue Service, where he prevailed. His bombshell revelations helped the US Treasury recover over $15 billion (and counting) in back taxes, fines, and penalties from American tax cheats. But Birkenfeld was shocked to discover that at the same time he was cooperating with the US Government, the Department of Justice was still doggedly pursuing him. He was arrested and served thirty months in federal prison. When he emerged, the Internal Revenue Service gave him a whistle-blower award for $104 million, the largest such reward in history. A page-turning real-life thriller, Lucifer’s Banker is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the secret Swiss high-net worth banking industry and a harrowing account of our government’s justice system. Readers will follow Birkenfeld and share his outrage with the incompetence and possible corruption at the Department of Justice, and they will cheer him on as he “hammers” one of the most well-known and powerful banks in the world.

No Place to Hide

No Place to Hide

Author: Glenn Greenwald

Year: 2014-05-13
In May 2013, Glenn Greenwald set out for Hong Kong to meet an anonymous source who claimed to have astonishing evidence of pervasive government spying and insisted on communicating only through heavily encrypted channels. That source turned out to be the 29-year-old NSA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden, and his revelations about the agency's widespread, systemic overreach proved to be some of the most explosive and consequential news in recent history, triggering a fierce debate over national security and information privacy. As the arguments rage on and the government considers various proposals for reform, it is clear that we have yet to see the full impact of Snowden's disclosures. Now for the first time, Greenwald fits all the pieces together, recounting his high-intensity ten-day trip to Hong Kong, examining the broader implications of the surveillance detailed in his reporting for The Guardian, and revealing fresh information on the NSA's unprecedented abuse of power with never-before-seen documents entrusted to him by Snowden himself. Going beyond NSA specifics, Greenwald also takes on the establishment media, excoriating their habitual avoidance of adversarial reporting on the government and their failure to serve the interests of the people. Finally, he asks what it means both for individuals and for a nation's political health when a government pries so invasively into the private lives of its citizens—and considers what safeguards and forms of oversight are necessary to protect democracy in the digital age. Coming at a landmark moment in American history, No Place to Hide is a fearless, incisive, and essential contribution to our understanding of the U.S. surveillance state.

Year: 2015-11-10
Already provoking debate and garnering significant attention in France and within the wine world, Vino Business is a surprising and eye-opening book about the dark side of French wine, by acclaimed investigative journalist Isabelle Saporta. While Bordeaux has been a bastion of winemaking tradition and excellence for centuries, in recent decades the industry has changed dramatically under the influence of large-scale international investors. French insurance companies, international fashion houses and Chinese businessmen are all speculating on the area’s wines and land, some of whose value has increased tenfold in the last decade alone. Saporta investigates in detail the 2012 classification of the wines of Saint-Émilion, the most prestigious appellation of Bordeaux’s right bank, which has come into disrepute, not least because the scoring system was changed in order to give points for a chĂąteaux’s lecture facilities and the size of its parking lot. A shocking exposĂ© of the French wine world, and a cri de coeur for the lost values of traditional winemaking, Vino Business pulls back the curtain on the secret domain of Bordeaux, a land ever more in thrall to the grapes of wealth.
