This is my formal submission on these important proposals, which are intended to give protection to persons reporting wrongdoing in public or private bodies. Most fraud and white-collar crime is reported by ‘tips’, so the effective tool has to be ‘If you see something, say something’. We also need to push for more effective investigations and prosecutions, but first we need high-quality information.’

Whistle-blower provisions are all the rage in Trinidad right now, so it is not a surprise to see this proposal.The problem is that, in small Caribbean islands, it will be difficult to give effect to legally mandated whistle-blower protections. In practice, most whistle-blowers will be identified, and will have to deal with retaliation. That will reduce the beneficial effects of any legislation.
