The government has defended its bid to get the Whistleblower Protection Bill, 2022 passed in the parliament.
Prime Minister, Dr Keith Rowley, piloted debate on the bill in the House of Representatives Friday morning.
Dr Rowley described as worrisome the level of corruption in the country, emphasising that legislation alone will not put an end to the illegal practice, insisting that input from the population is required and those involved in nefarious practices must be held accountable.
Expanding on different aspects of the legislation, Dr Rowley provided details relating to the establishment of a Whistleblower Reporting Unit and how it will operate.
The Prime Minister also revealed information relating to the protection of a whistleblower.
