NWC Urges President to Endorse Whistleblowing as Part of the Day’s Celebration

Washington, D.C. December 7, 2015.  The United Nations has formally set-aside December 9th as International Anti-Corruption Day.  As part of Anti-Corruption Day, the National Whistleblower Center is strongly urging President Obama to publicly praise the contributions of whistleblowers.
“Whistleblowers are the key source of information on fraud and corruption.  However, in countries around the world they face retaliation.  President Obama should strongly endorse whistleblowing on Anti-Corruption Day as the key method for detecting corruption,” said Stephen M. Kohn, Executive Director of the National Whistleblower Center.Image
To mark Anti-Corruption Day, the National Whistleblower Center is releasing a report documenting the importance of protecting and rewarding whistleblowers worldwide.  The report identifies key laws, such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the Act to Prevent Pollution from Ships and various wildlife protection laws, that permit non-U.S. citizens to obtain monetary compensation under U.S. whistleblower laws.
The NWC has also issued a Call to Action asking the public to urge President Obama to recognize the contributions of whistleblowers around the world.
