“If you have suffered harassment, intimidation or victimisation for sharing your concerns, restitution will be made for any loss suffered.”

She added that‎

“If you have already submitted your information, you can also check the status of your report on the portal”. ‎

She listed the types of information to be submitted as: mismanagement or misappropriation of public funds and assets financial malpractice or fraud, collecting / soliciting bribes, fraudulent and unapproved payments, splitting of contracts and procurement fraud (kickbacks and over-invoicing etc.)
