Agency Against Corruption (AAC) held a conference on Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA).

       In order to effectively fight against crime and implement an anti-corruption system, AAC is going to construct a robust whistleblower protection system to encourage whistleblower to file claims or report violations. Ministry of Justice submitted a draft amendment of WPA to Executive Yuan for review on Oct. 24, 2017.
      
       In response to the needs of the public and the society in Taiwan, it is necessary to shorten the legislative duration of whistleblower protection in private companies, and to evaluate the feasibility of simultaneous legislation for public and private sectors and its corresponding solutions. Therefore, AAC held a conference on Dec. 28, 2017 and Jan. 12, 2018. Mr. Rui-Ren Chen, counselor of Ministry of Justice, Dr. Yu-Hsiung Lin, Professor of College of Law of National Taiwan University, Dr. Chih-Chieh Lin, Professor of School of Law of National Chiao Tung University, and Dr. Sheng-Chieh Lee, Associate Professor of College of Law of National Chengchi University were invited to attend the conference. In the conference, they discussed the current legislation status in Taiwan and the future legislative direction to advise on the proposed draft.
