LACC Workshop Drafts Whistle-Blower Bill

MONROVIA, March 6 (LINA) - Participants at a three-day Whistle-blower and Witness Protection workshop have completed the draft of a whistle-blower bill.

The participants also constituted a committee to draft a bill on witness protection.

According to a press release, the workshop was organized by the Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) in collaboration with integrity institutions, government functionaries and Civil Society Organizations (CSOs).

Held from March 1-3, the workshop was aimed at creating a platform to discuss the drafting of a Whistle-blower and Witness Protection Bill.

During the workshop, participants reviewed and discussed the current draft bill and the then Executive Order #43 on whistle-blower.

They also looked at other documents on whistle-blower and witness protection with the aim of formulating and submitting a comprehensive bill to the National Legislature for enactment into law.

The workshop brought together key state actors drawn from the Ministry of Justice, Governance Commission, Liberia National Bar Association, Law Reform Commission, UNMIL, Catholic Justice and Peace Commission, CENTAL as well as the National Integrity Forum.

The Legal Professional Development Anti-Corruption Program (LPAC) of USAID sponsored the workshop.

It grew out of the regional workshop on whistle-blower and witness protection in the fight against corruption which was held in Monrovia from September 19-21, 2016, the release noted.
