Protecting Witnesses and Whistleblowers: Possibilities for Mauritius and Other Small Island
Protecting Witnesses and Whistleblowers: Possibilities for Mauritius and Other Small Island States, by Hollie Webb* This article is based on research conducted throughout Mauritius from May to August in 2016. The focus of the research was to explore ways to implement Articles 32 and 33 of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) on the protection of witnesses and whistleblowers in small island developing States (SIDS). The study was facilitated by the Independent Commission Against Corruption in Mauritius and involved a combination of in-person interviews and legal research. The objective was to determine what type of protective measures for witnesses, whistleblowers, and other reporting persons would be the most effective when implemented in small island States, in addition to determining how to generally encourage the reporting of corruption. The study was conducted under an assumption of the relatedness of these two concepts, that most people are not willing to report corruption unless they know they will be protected from danger.
