On June 10, the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency participated in the presentation of the conclusions of the two working groups that the European Network of Integrity Authorities and Alerters (NEIWA) has set up to address both external reporting channels and internal channels.
The AVAF has emphasized in both working groups the importance of anonymous reporting and establishing measures to ensure the confidentiality of the report, the development of the investigation and the identity of the complainant from any “third party”. The figure of the anonymous whistleblower and the confidentiality of the investigation are fully applicable, in the same terms, both in external channels and in internal reporting channels.
These conclusions and the contributions of the participants in the Neiwa Network will form part of the next declaration of this platform for cooperation and exchange of knowledge and experiences in the field of integrity and whistleblowing, which will soon be released.
Finally, remember that the NEIWA Network currently represents 21 member states and was created in May 2019. On the part of Spain, the Anti-Fraud Office of Catalonia and the Valencian Anti-Fraud Agency are present at its meetings as full members.
