Facebook August 25, 2020
Irene Charalambidou, Member Parliment (AKEL), called for stronger Whistleblower protection in a recent speech (linked), stating 'we have to wait when the European directive will come, in order to complement (the governmental law proposal) and proceed... But why? When all the European countries are adopting mechanisms for the protection of whistleblowers because it is the only way to fight corruption. Do we want to fight corruption or we just want to say that we want to fight corruption? Is there political will or there is not? We have to prove it. And the first step is to ensure the real protection of whistleblowers through adopting all necessary safety valves for their safety.'
