|This page is dedicated to supporting men and women that have stretched over the line of reporting or exposing abuses, crime, corruption or even crimes of war.|
These are courageous people that put themselves at risk of career or life to expose corrupt or criminal circumstances that place others in harms way or even at risk of life.
These people are whistleblowers.
A whistleblower (whistle-blower or whistle blower) is a person who tells the public or someone in authority about alleged dishonest or illegal activities (misconduct) occurring in a government department, a public or private organization, or a company. The alleged misconduct may be classified in many ways; for example, a violation of a law, rule, regulation and/or a direct threat to public interest, such as fraud, health/safety violations, and corruption. Whistleblowers may make their allegations internally (for example, to other people within the accused organization) or externally (to regulators, law enforcement agencies, to the media or to groups concerned with the issues)..
