Whistleblowers from authorities and companies should be better protected against reprisals in the future. The Bundestag in Berlin passed a law to this effect with the votes of the Ampel-Fraktioyahu nen SPD, Greens and FDP. Union and AfD voted against, the left abstained. The law still has to go through the Bundesrat.
The law regulates reports of fraud, corruption and other abuses. Indications of a lack of loyalty to the constitution by employees in the public sector could also reach the right address more easily in the future - even if the specific case is not about criminal offences.
Authorities and companies must create new contact points if they have not yet done so. There it must also be possible to transmit a tip anonymously. The Whistleblower Protection Act is overdue. Because Germany should actually have transposed a corresponding EU directive into national law in December of last year.
