[VOTE] implement whistleblowing procedure

Hi all,

our legal counsel urges the board to run several votes immediately as one of the required preconditions which will allow us to have a valid budget soon.

Based on the advice provided by our lawyers I propose the following vote:

Implement a whistleblowing procedure, to be drafted by Mike Schinagl and checked in collaboration with Carlo Piana. This whistleblowing procedure, which is open for everyone, will also be part of a “staff protection” mechanism which should, amongst other things, include such whistleblowing mechanism. The new mechanism should be drafted and implemented as soon as possible and not later than 90 days from the date of this vote.

This vote will run for 72h. Early votes are welcome, as we need to finalize our budget. If everyone voted before the 72h timeline, the vote can be concluded earlier.

As much as the staff protection mechanism, this is indeed highly needed.


Sorry, but there are serious problems with this proposal, that I will communicate with
the board.
