#EUelections2019 - Whistleblowers
Event date: 08/04/2019
MEPs fought for stronger protection for whistleblowers because in general in Europe there was weak protection. In many countries, whistleblower protection rules tended to be limited in scope.
During the EP plenary session (16-19 April 2018) in Strasbourg, MEPs vote on a resolution and call for a thorough independent investigation and better EU protection for whistle blowers to wrap-up the March plenary debate on the murder of Slovac investigative journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancée Martina Kušnírová, press freedom and how to ensure the safety of journalists.
