European Parliament approves new protections for whistleblowers, Politico

The European Parliament Tuesday approved new rules for protecting whistleblowers, which will mean individuals won’t be obliged to report breaches of EU law internally.

« On the eve of European elections, Parliament has come together to send a strong signal that it has heard the concerns of its citizens, and pushed for robust rules guaranteeing their safety and that of those persons who choose to speak out, » said MEP and rapporteur Virginie Rozière of the Socialists and Democrats group, in a statement.
