Denis Robert (born 9 May 1958, Moyeuvre-Grande, Thionville-Ouest) is a French freelance journalist and a writer. Robert formerly worked for Libération newspaper for 12 years.

Denis Robert is best known as co-author of "Revelation$"[1], a book published by Les Arènes on March 1, 2001, which purported Cedel, later Clearstream, of a number of illegal financial activities, such as aiding and abetting money laundering, tax evasion et cetera. Robert has since been sentenced for the allegations brought forward in "Revelation$". On March 29, 2004, Le Tribunal de Grande Instance de Paris (High Court) judged Robert, his publisher Les Arènes and the French TV company Canal+ France, which had repeated the allegations raised in Revelation$, to have failed in their attempts to prove any and all allegations; furthermore the court ordered damages to be paid to Clearstream and that the judgment be printed in two French newspapers explaining the defamatory nature of the material. [2] Regarding the same allegations, on October 16, 2008, the Paris Court of Appeal confirmed Robert's sentence for "diffamation" (libel) on eight counts (see Clearstream).
