European Directive on whistleblower protection


Legislative proposal will be based on articles 114 (functioning of the internal market) and 325 (financial interest of the EU). It follows that, contrary to what V. Jourovà said, it will not be horizontal.


Legislative proposal from the Commission will most likely come on April 17, 25 at latest !


It is announced for April 23rd.


It looks like the press has a a draft of the directive which the civil society working with the commission does not have yet. That’s somewhat funny :wink:
