In order to encourage more individuals to come forward and whistleblow, there must be several changes made to the Whistleblower Protection Act 2010, for it to have meaning for the public to have confidence in the system.
C4 Center is leading a campaign on Whistleblower protection and one of the activity is national consultation to propose the necessary amendments to the act, in collaboration with the Governance, Integrity, Anti-Corruption Center (GIACC) and Law Department in the Prime Minister Department (BHEUU).
A first round table Webinar (Series 1) was held on November 6, 2020 entitled: Whistleblowers Vital to Break the Chain of Corruption. Is There Protection?
It was attended by 180 participants from both the public and private sector. This was an outstanding number, the discussion were rich in content and analysis. It was also captured by a few media. More engagement sessions will be held in 2021.
