The activity “Docuforum AVAF” is held in two sessions. The first one involves viewing the documentary “Corruption: Harmful Organism” on Pandora Box TV in the classroom. After it, the students expose their doubts and questions about the issues raised in the documentary.

On Friday, March 24, the AVAF training technician, Pilar Moreno, visited this municipality in the Utiel – Requena region to share with the students of the IES Miguel Ballesteros Viana a debate forum articulated around the doubts of those present.

The anonymous denunciation, the new Law 2/2023 for the protection of informants of regulatory violations and the fight against corruption, as well as the division of contracts and the protection of whistleblowers were some of the issues that interested the students, aged between 15 and 18 years.

The Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency together with 33 European integrity and protection authorities are constituted in Rome in the NEIWA Network

Rome, 24 March 2023.- The European Network of Integrity and Protection Authorities for Whistleblowers of Corruption has been  officially constituted this Friday in Rome as NEIWA Network.

This Network began operating in 2018 informally as a platform for cooperation and exchange of knowledge and experiences in the field of integrity and protection of whistleblowers. The approval of the European Directive 1937/2019 served as the basis for the constitution of this Network among those European agencies and authorities that were assigned these competences.

Currently, a total of 34 authorities belonging  to Member States of the European Union make up the Network, among which is the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency, as well as authorities from candidate countries to join the European Union and EFTA (European Free Trade Association).

In the course of the  8th General Assembly of NEIWA that is being held on March 23 and 24  in Rome, the Network has approved its formal constitution as  well as the  adoption of a regulation  and to give structure to  the organization and regulate the  operation of the Network.

Laura Valli, representative of Italy’s National Anti-Corruption Authority (ANAC),  has also been elected as president of NEIWA and it has been agreed that the next meeting of the General Assembly will be held in Valencia.

Within the agenda of the General Assembly, the  Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency has been  invited to make a presentation on how its complaints mailbox works and what is its experience in the management of this channel that has received more than 1,000 complaints in the 5 years it has been in operation.

The director of the Agency, Joan Llinares, and the head of the Agency’s information systems,  Javier Alamá, have been in charge of  making the complaints mailbox known to the rest of the  European authorities.

After the presentation, the Director of the Agency stated that “the fact that 33 European authorities for the fight against corruption and the protection of whistleblowers have shown interest in knowing how the AVAF complaints box works reinforces the work we are doing”.

“The Agency’s complaints mailbox is becoming a benchmark and so in November we were also presenting this mailbox invited by the group of experts of the European Commission. This mailbox is the one we are helping to implement in Valencian public institutions with which we have already signed collaboration agreements. The Provincial Council of Valencia, Provincial Council of Castellón, entities such as VAERSA or ISTEC,  and with municipalities such as those of Valencia, L’Eliana, Riba-roja, San Vicente del Raspeig, Dénia or La Yesa that have already incorporated as their external channel of complaints the mailbox of the Agency “.
