INFO: Southeast Asian countries discuss way forward to protect witnesses and reporting persons in corruption cases.  Nearly one third of fraud cases are reported thanks to whistle-blowers, although in most countries in Southeast Asia, blowing the whistle on corruption still entails high personal risks due to the lack of adequate legal protection against reprisal and abuse.

COMMENTARY: Canada’s Supreme Court Hands Corruption Fighters a Victory Worth Savoring.  "Last Friday, in World Bank Group v. Wallace the Canadian Supreme Court upheld the use of a growing practice in the fight against transnational corruption, ruling that World Bank investigators can provide information to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police about corruption in Bank projects and that it can do so without becoming subject to Canadian law."
