The National Whistleblower Center released a report today recommending the use of whistleblower reward laws to fight corruption worldwide. “Whistleblower Reward Programs: An International Framework for the Detection of Corruption and Illegal Bribery,” outlines how the use of whistleblower rewards laws is a highly effective tool in detecting fraud and misconduct.

In a press release from the National Whistleblower Center, Executive Director Stephen M. Kohn, stated “The ability of foreign nationals to qualify for whistleblower rewards under the False Claims Act is a breakthrough in the worldwide fight against corruption. Using this transnational law as the model the National Whistleblower Center strongly urges anti-corruption NGOs and government institutions to adopt this framework as a cornerstone in their government and corporate accountability programs.”

The National Whistleblower Center also stated that it is prepared to work with “anti-corruption activist and dedicated government officials” to assist them in setting up successful anti-corruption programs. Related links:
