External whistleblowing system in the Czech Republic

The external notification channel is established by the Ministry of Justice of the Czech Republic. Submission of a hint to the Ministry is not subject to the initial submission of a hint through an internal whistleblowing system. It is entirely up to the whistleblower to decide what procedure to choose.

A hint can be submitted to the Ministry of Justice here https://oznamovatel.justice.cz/chci-podat-oznameni/

Authorized persons of the Ministry evaluate the hint with respect to the scope of the Whistleblower Protection Act and the competence of the public authority that should deal with the reported unlawful conduct. Subsequently, they submit the hint as incentives for further investigation to public authorities (e.g. law enforcement authorities, inspection bodies, etc.). However, unlike the above-mentioned relevant persons who receive and handle reports within the framework of the internal whistleblowing system, the authorized employees of the Ministry of Justice do not carry out any investigation of the reported unlawful conduct by the organization in which it is alleged to have occurred, nor do they subsequently propose measures to prevent or remedy the detected unlawful situation.
