Recommendation: 1) Please delete term “bad faith” in this article. 2) Please provide a clear definition “bad faith.” For example, specify what kinds of acts are considered “bad faith” or whether acts of corruption and other related actions are also included. 3) There is also a precious code of ethics for revealing the information to the public and the whistleblower must be not criminally or civilly punished for supplying the information.
