Whistleblower Regimes

Panama-Papers, Wirecard and Luxleaks - those are just a few examples of financial scandals brought to light by the actions of whistleblowers. As a result, the EU identified the need to better protect persons that unveil criminal activities of an organisation to the public, and subsequently adopted the Whistleblowing Directive (DIRECTIVE (EU) 1019/1937) on 16 April 2019, which requires EU-member states to adopt national whistleblower laws.
