JPHLAW solicitors Portadown – News – Whistleblowers Charter

Lawyers urge greater protection for self-reporting and whistleblowers
Ahead of the major anti-corruption summit being hosted by David Cameron on Thursday, Pinsent Masons has urged the government to introduce better protection for companies confessing wrongdoings and cash incentives for whistleblowers. The law firm called for governments to provide immunity from prosecution for businesses which self-report corruption, saying companies entering into deferred prosecution agreements should also be given discounts on penalties and that whistleblowers should be incentivised in cash, paid for out of fines and penalties. “In light of recent scandals, leaders need to ensure that the summit amounts to more than just a talking shop and that formal, concrete policies, as well as practical steps, are agreed. Measures need to break the cycle of corruption, create a level playing field for ethical businesses and really make a difference,” said Barry Vitou, partner and head of global corporate crime at Pinsent Masons
