Repinski articles win investigative journalism award

Andres Einmann

Estonia's most prestigious award for investigative journalism, the Bonnier Prize, went this year to Marian Männi from the weekly Eesti Ekspress for articles about the former rural affairs minister Martin Repinski's goat business.

The articles alleging that a part of the goat cheese sold under Repinski's Konju farm label had actually been produced in the Netherlands and accusing Repinski of lying to the public led to the minister's resignation after just two weeks on the job.

The winner gets a 5,000 euro prize from the Swedish media group Bonnier and business daily Äripäev.

Other nominees were Koit Brinkmann from Äripäev for two stories about Tallinn's waste business, Tuuli Jõesaar from Eesti Paevaleht for an expose on the "miracle supplement" Cellfood, and Tuuli Koch, Risto Berendsen and Oliver Kund from Postimees for articles about the Port of Tallinn's passenger ferry tender.
