An international team of investigative reporters revealed how top UN officials covered up crucial information about the murder of the UN experts Zaida Catalán and Michael Sharp and their four Congolese colleagues in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2017. The story made headlines globally. The Congolese minister for Foreign affairs called the information lies, but shortly after the broadcast a Congolese army colonel was arrested. Deceptive Diplomacy has received national and international praise and was awarded an International Emmy in the Current Affairs category, as well as winning the current affairs category at Prix Europa this year.
