Malta – Standards – Protection – Retaliation

3. Subject to the exceptions stated in this Act, despite any prohibition of or restriction on the disclosure of information under any enactment, rule of law, contract, oath or practice a whistleblower may not be subjected to detrimental action on account of having made a protected disclosure.

4. The protection afforded to a whistleblower shall not be prejudiced on the basis only that the whistleblower making the disclosure was, in good faith, mistaken about its import or that any perceived threat to the public interest on which the disclosure was based has not materialised or that the person making the disclosure has not fully respected the procedural requirements of this Act or of any regulations or guidelines made under this Act.
