Stephen M. Kohn presenting Whistleblower Protection Strategy in Attica, Greece
On February 2,2019, the Hellenic Anti-Corruption Organization held its first International Conference on Anticorruption Policies & Anti-Bribery Management Systems in Attica, Greece
Whistleblower attorney Stephen M. Kohn, Executive Director of the National Whistleblower Center (NWC) from Washington, DC, delivered the keynote address and spoke about whistleblower protections in the US and Europe. Several US whistleblower laws have international applications that have been used to fight fraud and corruption worldwide. These laws are key to anti-bribery efforts, and insider disclosures have already resulted in millions of dollars in fines in the U.S. and beyond. Whistleblowers need to be rewarded and protected from retribution, Kohn said, and urged the EU authorities to proceed accordingly.
