Camilo Enciso, Director of the Anti-Corruption Institute, was interviewed by Colombian national newspaper El Espectador about Pedro Pascasio Martínez’s proposed bill which seeks to protect and support those who flag incidences of corruption. The Institute’s Director stated that it is absurd to demand that citizensare required to sign their complaints using their full names when the State has not been able to defend their safety. Furthermore, international treaties state that anonymity and confidentiality must be guaranteed. Finally, he alleged that the bill excludes whistleblower protection for private incidences corruption and also does not include incentives.
