Anti-corruption public awareness event continues Western Balkans tour

Kosovo

Pristina was the next capital city in the Western Balkans to host a performance that raises awareness on the importance of whistleblowing in stopping corruption. Through a 24-hour “Whistle for the End” performance, the Regional Anti-Corruption Initiative (RAI) demonstrated to citizens how they can save money from corruption, by pressing a button – symbolically ‘blowing the whistle’.

 

Speaking at the event, Director of the Anti-Corruption Agency, Shaip Havolli, spoke about the cooperation with RAI in fighting the phenomenon of corruption, and noted the progress made in implementing the Law on Protection of Whistleblowers. “We call on all public officials who consider that they have noticed violations in their organisation to report such violations in cooperation with responsible officials and thus increase transparency and institutional and individual accountability,” Havolli said.

 

On behalf of the RAI, Project Manager Elmerina Ahmetaj Hrelja said: “We invite citizens to ‘Whistle for the End!’ by pressing the button and thus symbolically stop corruption and further destruction of their money. This gesture will show us how much money together we can save from destruction when we do not accept to participate in corruption.”

 

Whistle for the End! is part of the educational and information campaign that RAI is implementing with the financial support of the European Union, as part of the project “Breaking the Silence: Enhancing the Whistleblowing Policies and Culture in the Western Balkans and Moldova”.
