Paul Farrell

Paul Farrell is an investigative reporter at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s flagship current affairs program 7.30. He previously worked at The Guardian and Buzzfeed News, breaking major national and international stories. He led The Guardian’s Nauru files reporting team, which published thousands of pages of leaked documents from Australia’s offshore detention regime and won a number of journalism awards. He has worked on global investigations led by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, including the Panama Papers and the HSBC tax files. He has reported extensively on the way politicians wield public funds for political purposes, and his award-winning reporting on Gladys Berejiklian formed a key line of inquiry for the corruption probe into the former premier. He has also extensively covered the intersection of tech and government, such as the Australian government’s Robodebt program.
