Protecting the Whistleblower Protection Act

Protecting the Whistleblower Protection Act

Anti-corruption campaigns across the world have heavily relied on whistleblowers to empower their fight. Despite the consensus that witness accounts are crucial in the battle against graft and scandals, blowing the whistle on any wrongdoing is still largely seen by Malaysians as a risky act that could backfire.

This is reflected by the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission’s unflattering statistics on the low number of people who have come forward to speak out. As the MACC ramps up its effort to eradicate corruption within the civil service, the need for a system that fully supports the act of exposing corrupt officials is vital.

Today on Current Affairs, we explore the Whistleblower Protection Act 2010 and the deficiencies within the legal framework that weaken this law.

This is a report by Raja Nadhirah Raja Hasnan.
