    Saeima passes Whistleblower Protection Law

    RIGA, Oct 11 (LETA) - Saeima passed the Whistleblower Protection Law in the final reading today.

    The goal of the legislation is to encourage residents to report violations and set up an effective whistleblower protection system.

    According to the law, persons who have a good reason to suspect that an administrative or criminal violation has occurred at a public institution are to report this to the authorities. The law also provides mechanisms for the protection of whistleblowers and measures against persons who try to retaliate against a whistleblower.

    The Whistleblower Protection Law will come into force on May 1, 2019.
