RAI Secretariat takes part in the first ever International Whistleblower Day

International Whistleblower Day and Free Speech Macedonia are organized by the Southeast Europe Coalition on Whistleblower Protection (SECWP) and Center for Investigative Journalism SCOOP-Macedonia. SECWP is the world’s only regional organization dedicated to improving whistleblower rights, supporting whistleblowers and investigating their disclosures. SCOOP is Macedonia’s leading independent source of in-depth, public interest news.

The first annual International Whistleblower Day is held in Skopje on March 24, 2017. This all-day event at Mladinski Kulturni Centar Club features a meet-and-greet with whistleblowers, speeches by activists, a press conference, citizen speak-up, and live music.

Speakers include public prosecutor Katica Janeva, whistleblower Simo Gruevski, investigative journalist Zoran Ivanov, and activists Dzabir Derala, Slagana Taseva and Petrus Theunisz. Human rights activist and journalist Arzu Geybulla will deliver a keynote speech on the growing challenges and dangers of investigative reporting and activism in Europe and around the world.

RAI is proud to take part in the whole day Programme.
