The Liberia Anti- Corruption Commission or LACC says it has invited key stakeholders here including the Ministry of Justice, Law Reform Commission, Liberia National Bar Association and the Liberia National Police to a workshop to review a document that is seeking to protect whistleblowers.
LACC Chairperson Cllr. James Verdier told Coffee Break on UNMIL Radio Wednesday, 1 March that the Commission seeks to have a Whistleblower and Witness Protection Bill for an onward submission to the Legislature.
He recalled that late last year, the LACC and key stakeholders met here in Monrovia to discuss major documents concerning the protection of whistleblowers, witnesses and other essential issues that will boost the anti- corruption fight.
Cllr. Verdier expressed optimism that at the end of the workshop which was called on Wednesday, 1 March, stakeholders would come up with an instrument that will be used for the protection of whistleblowers and
witnesses that will cooperate with the LACC in providing information concerning corrupt deeds.
To fulfill its promises about minimizing corruption here, the LACC Boss Cllr. Verdier says every stakeholder has been invited to review the document. He said those providing information on corruption will get some benefits as a way of appreciating them.
