Subject: Whistleblowers in the institutions, bodies, offices and agencies of the Union
The Commission has introduced a directive on whistleblowers which obliges larger companies and public administration bodies in the EU to set up ‘hotlines’ for whistleblowers. Are there such hotlines for the Commission, the EEAS and the EU agencies?
How often have they been used, if they indeed exist? If they do exist, has their use resulted in action being taken? If so, what action has been taken?
