"I make Malala's words my own: 'I tell my story not because it is unique but because it is not" and I hope my story can be served as an example, motivation and inspiration to other whistleblowers who are being silenced and their careers and reputations buried around the world by companies that don’t respect their codes of ethics, by employees and executives who steal corporate coffers and the board that pretends nothing happens"

What would you do? This is Eni's Way!
What would you do?
You, following the Code of Ethics of your company, make a
complaint to the internal channels about a millionaire scheme of frauds and
corruption. Nothing happens and you are fired in retaliation.
You invoke the Ethics Committee and they don't do anything
either. Then, you can only appeal to the Board of the company. The directors of
the Board, including the global CEO, don't take any action regarding your case.
However, to try to intimidate and silence you, they sue you for libel and
slander, demanding an indemnity of US$30 millions.
There is no law for the protection of whistleblower in the
country where the mentioned facts happened. What would you do? This is Eni's Way!
