Whistleblower protection: ‘A strong signal on justice, democracy and citizenship’, Le Taurillon
“There is also the chance that whistleblowers will still find themselves in court, will be constantly seen as threats and will even suffer isolation” states Virginie Rozière (Socialists and Democrats) who is the rapporteur of the text and who was interviewed by Taurillon.
“Still, the spirit of the agreement is to recalibrate the balance of power. This is a strong signal with regard to justice, democracy and citizenship. This is a satisfying text for Europeans and whistleblowers, for whom exposing offences does not come cheap.”
