      et's consider the situation where an employee discovers
      that the  company   carries out fraudulent accounting
      practices.The employee approaches the public authorities
with this information so that appropriate action can be taken
against the company. This good faith reporting by the employee
is called whistleblowing. Simply stated, whistleblowing is the act
wherein the public or authorities are informed of an illegal activity
taking place in an organization. The person who reports such activity is called the'whistleblower'
Once  the'whistle is blown', since whistleblowers are the ones who report the information, they
face the risk of undergoing reputational and  other severe damages.   Most countries, realizing
the importance  of providing safety to a whistleblower, has adopted policies and safeguards for
whistleblower  protection. Most  of the Middle  Eastern countries  have adopted   several laws
pertaining to whistleblowing  and for the protection of whistleblowers. However, it is important
to note that a whistleblower  has to inform the police department  or the concerned  authority
and  not the public, so as to avoid liability for defamation.
