Whitsleblowers like Antoine Deltour, Zuzana Hlávková and Andrea Franzoso have all faced great personal and professional ramifications by exposing corruption and wrong doing in the public interest. While some EU countries have certain levels of whistleblower protections, many do not and the kind of problems that whistleblowers expose often do not respect borders. Different legal protections and the globalised nature of our countries means we need an EU-wide level of protection for whistleblowers, so that ordinary individuals who wish to expose the truth feel safe, secure and free to come forward.
We are advocating for the European Commission to come forward for a proposal for an EU directive on whistleblower protection.
