Spanish bill threatens whisleblowers' protection
Fri 17 Mar 2017, 21:10

A very flawed whistleblowers protection law has been proposed in Spain. The law would not only insufficiently protect whistleblowers but also undermine citizens’ rights. Its apparently attractive name (“Ley Integral de Lucha contra la Corrupción y Protección de los Denunciantes” - Comprehensive Law on the Struggle against Corruption and Protection of Whistleblowers) hides serious dangers. Yet, the draft law has been supported by all the parties except PNV (Basque Nationalist Party).
