[LISTEN] Is whistleblowing worth it?

The Open Democracy Advice Centre's Lorraine Martin says whistleblowers are afraid of retaliation and that nothing will be done once they blow the lid on crime.

JOHANNESBURG – Programme manager at Open Democracy Advice Centre (OPAC) Lorraine Martin says a lot of whistleblowers have conceded that it is worth it, despite the challenges that come with it.

Martin says whistleblowers are mostly afraid of retaliation, their lives being threatened and that nothing will be done once they blow the lid on crime.

She says the centre campaigns for investigations to be launched once whistleblowers have come forward and for action to be taken against those found to be on the wrong side of the law.
