My old friend Drew Sullivan has brought one of his projects online, the Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project. It's a major project aimed at generating greater transparency especially in the Balkans and Eastern Europe. An invaluable tool for those interested in the region.
Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) is a joint program of the Center for Investigative Reporting in Sarajevo, Romanian Center for Investigative Journalism, Bulgarian Investigative Journalism Center and a network of investigative journalists in Serbia, Montenegro, Albania, Moldova, Ukraine, Russia and Georgia.

The aim of OCCRP is to provide in-depth investigative stories as well as the latest news pertaining to organized crime and corruption activities in the South East European Region. In addition to the stories, OCCRP is building an online resource center of documents related to organized crime including court records, laws, reports, studies, company records, etc that will be an invaluable resource center for the journalists and public alike.
