Rachel Ehrenfeld, author of Funding Evil: How Terrorism Is Financed and How to Stop It (Bonus Books; April 25, 2005) participated in a panel about “libel tourism.” She was sued in a British court by a Saudi financier who claimed that she libeled him in her book, Funding Evil. Because of First Amendment free speech protections, the suit was not pursued in a U.S. Court. The panelists discussed legislative and policy issues related to international libel laws and the publishing industry. They responded to questions from members of the audience.

Rachel Ehrenfeld is the director of the American Center for Democracy. She is also the author of Evil Money: The Inside Story of Money Laundering and Corruption in Government, Banks and Business and Narcoterrorism: How Governments Around the World Have Used the Drug Trade to Finance and Further Terrorist Activities. close
