05 March - TAP - The draft law on the protection of informers will be submitted to the House of People’s Representatives (HPR) “within a month,” announced Friday, civil service, governance and anti-corruption fight minister Kamel Ayadi during a conference on fight against corruption, organised in Hammamet by the Tunisian association of young barristers.

“This draft law will help create an effective partnership with citizens in fight against corruption and will offer the necessary legal framework to protect whistleblowers,” the minister explained in his lecture on the e-platform to denounce corruption, “which will be ready by the end of 2016.”

This platform conceived with the assistance of South Korea at the cost of over 10 million dinars, will be the main foundation of anti-corruption fight insofar as it will help transmit complaints automatically to concerned structures and help informers follow the various stages his complaint has gone through.

The minister also announced that the anti-corruption fight strategy will be examined in two weeks by a cabinet meeting.
