The new judiciary reform and the “whistleblower” law have made it possible for more people to report power abuse in the public and private sector.
There are 166 units which will now receive reports made by people for administration workers, including their colleagues and supervisors.
The High Inspectorate for Declaration and Audit of Assets said that 332 employees have been obliged to note down reports about possible corruption cases. This application is used so that right after a whistleblower comes up, his report gets immediately reviewed.
If the whistleblower could have his job put at risk, he is offered protection from retaliation. However, lawyer Megi Zonja thinks that most of the public administration employees hesitate to report suspicious practices.
