MEP: Pipe up over wrongs

Have your say

LOTHIANS-BASED Labour MEP David Martin has hailed new European legislation to support whistleblowers.

The law calls for an end to the practice of “blacklisting” workers who speak out. But Mr Martin attacked Britain’s Tory MEPs for opposing the move.

He said: “When people see their companies are being unethical or illegal, they should have a right, nay a responsibility, to make it known without fear of prosecution. We need Europe-wide action.”
