The EU Commission launches public consultation on whistle-blower protection

The protection of whistle-blowers can contribute to safeguarding the public interest, promoting good governance and strengthening the rule of law, as well as our core democratic right to freedom of expression. The public consultation seeks to collect views from a broad range of stakeholders, as well as the general public, on the issue of whistle-blower protection at national and EU level.

The consultation is available here and will be open until 29 May 2017.

Commissioner Vera Jourová“Whistle-blowers can play a crucial role when it comes to fighting money laundering, fraud or corruption. We have to weigh carefully what is the best way forward and on which level we should act to better protect them. This public consultation will be valuable for the Commission to make well-informed choices. This is an important issue and we have to get it right.”
