From Victims to Whistleblowers: new Initiative by the Legal Committee in Brussels
Oct 3, 2017 — Dear Supporters,
The EU maze of political institutions is difficult to grasp and even more difficult to disentangle.
However, it is promising when the right people take on the right issues, as the title article reveals: the Legal Affairs Committee calls for EU-wide protection of whistle-blowers. Does that mean UK whistle-blowers will have an even harder time than now???
I emailed the French MEP in charge, copying my familiar contacts and looked at a few old documents I put together as I am 'processing my experiences'.
One of the Newsweek articles I stumbled across was: UK Care System branded 'disgraceful' over missing children on http://www.newsweek.com/thousands-missing-children-care-system-could-be-sexually-exploited-311607
Let's remember all those parents who were NOT afraid to risk prison by speaking out about the crimes committed against their children and themselves.
They are all whistleblowers in the public interest and that's at the heart of the document of the LEGAL AFFAIRS COMMITTEE, even though it was triggered by the Panama Papers, i.e. concerning financial details.
Sex and Money are the biggest ethical and moral traps, it seems.
If only more people were able to resist them!
With best wishes for whatever fight you are fighting,
Keep fighting for people power!
