Ukraine’s new law amending anti-graft legislation and introducing “corruption whistleblowers” has entered into force. The law is set to protect and provide financial incentives to whistleblowers who report corruption-related offenses.
The Ukrainian government will provide a monetary reward to whistleblowers for important tips that will help investigate high-profile corruption-related crimes where damage incurred to the state budget exceeds UAH 10 million.
The whistleblower’s remuneration amounts to 10% of the monetary amount of a subject of corruption offense or the amount of damage caused to the state from the crime after the court verdict has been handed down. The amount of remuneration may not exceed 3,000 minimum wages.
