Europe agrees on protection rules for whistleblowers, Policito
Whistleblowers won’t be obliged to report breaches of EU law internally.
Europe is one step closer to setting up for the first time EU-wide rules to protect whistleblowers.
The European Parliament, the Commission and the Romanian presidency representing EU countries reached an agreement overnight in Strasbourg, after several weeks of tense negotiations.
« Member countries finally heard all the calls for this text. We had to fight for the final agreement to live up to expectations, » the Parliament’s lead negotiator, French Socialist Virginie Rozière, said in a statement.
