Apres webinar – “Calling out COVID corruption…”

Thank you to our panelists for putting on a spectacle that gripped the audiences attention, breathing life into what it seems has quickly become a somewhat de rigeur medium. The commoditizing of the WEBINAR surely has come about due to expedience and the overlooking of a crucial point – the passion of the speakers.

John, Bill, Johannes, Mary and Khadiya (sadly Glynnis could not attend), effortlessly shepherded by moderator Andreas, effused on a topic that is by no means brand new but this time sublimely unpacked by experts.

The plea for urgent updating of legislation governing whistleblowing came through strongly, with several speakers advocating the inclusion of a whistleblower reward a la the SEC reward scheme. Johannes’ recount of his harrowing experiences after blowing

the whistle in the now notorious “Fishrot” case only served to re-affirm the vagaries surrounding legislation to adequately protect whistleblowers. Amazingly still not priority in developing and many developed countries. And there is more of course!

A quick request, please leave us your details and if you have another spare moment please leave a message about the webinar or anything whistle blower related!
