C4 Webinar: Is there any real protection for whistleblowers?

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).
