The European Parliament approved on April 16 with a large majority, a new directive to protect reporting persons, by 591 votes in favor, 29 against and 33 abstentions. Europarliamentarians have adopted this directive that should protect the anonymity of people who report breaches of Union law.

The Anti-Fraud Office of Catalonia has prepared the following document that will serve to explain to citizens what this directive means:

The Anti-Fraud Office also intervened during the public consultation phase of the proposal for a Directive and drew up various observations and submissions to the proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of persons reporting on breaches of Union law (in Catalan).

Also, the Anti-Fraud Office, in its report The management of conflicts of interest in the public sector of Catalonia, included in its section 5.10 the need to establish internal reporting channels and the protection of persons reporting as a necessary tool to guarantee the effectiveness of all existing tools to manage and detect conflicts of interest.
