From January 1, legislation based on foreign best practice is to come into power, which ensures the legal protection of individuals, who unveil illegal activities, which are in breach of public interest.

All state and municipal institutions will have to establish internal channels to provide information on breaches, which will ensure confidentiality.

This is also to be applicable in private sector companies with more than 50 staff.
