The Liberia Anti-Corruption Commission (LACC) will on Wednesday, June 21, hold a one-day colloquium on the passage of the draft Whistleblower and Witness Protection Bill into law, a news release stated the other day.

The colloquium is meant to get the assistance of the National Legislature for the passage of the draft Bill into Law. It is likewise focused on raising awareness amongst Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and other state stars on the significance of the Whistleblower and Witness Protection Law in Liberia. The draft costs have currently been verified by stakeholders.

The keynote address will be provided by Vice President Joseph N. Boakai.

The effort by the LACC, stability organizations, federal government functionaries, and CSOs to prepare the Whistleblower and Witness Protection Bill for passage by the National Legislature follows a local workshop kept in Monrovia in September 2016, which advised that member states of ECOWAS create a legal structure to secure whistleblowers and witnesses in the battle versus corruption.
