Thailand reaffirms witness and whistleblower protection amidst corruption crackdown

The government encouraged both locals and foreigners to participate in tackling corruption problems.

The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) reaffirmed that witnesses and whistleblowers are protected by law amidst its call for the public to participate in tackling the corruption problem. 

Under the Organic Act on the Prevention and Suppression of Corruption, Thailand empowered the NACC to provide safety protection to accusers, victims, petitioners, complainants, witnesses, whistleblowers who give statements or reports any clues about information. 

"Preventing and combating corruption requires the cooperation of all sectors, whether government agencies, private organizations, or civil society, to recognize the serious threats that arise and recognize the importance of the problem of corruption. Witnesses or people who have been damaged by corruption cases or whistleblowers are afraid to complain or give information regardless of corruption and bribery,” the NACC said. 

“This will create difficulty in tackling corruption and bringing perpetrators to justice. For that reason, the Constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand; therefore, places importance on the prevention and suppression of corruption by focusing on the participation of the public in the fight against or pointing out clues of corruption, and the state must provide measures to protect people who report corruption.”
