Justice Hima Kohli bats for proper implementation of Whistleblower Protection Act

Justice Kohli said that white-collar crimes pose a bigger threat as they are invisible. Thus, raising awareness about the same is crucial.

“White-collar Crime presents a formidable challenge to India’s judicial and economic systems, necessitating a nuanced and comprehensive response. Fight against this crime requires a multipronged approach. The judiciary, supported by robust legislative frameworks and dedicated institutional mechanisms, is pivotal in addressing these offences,” she opined.

She also batted for the use of technology and advanced security mechanisms to tackle such crimes.

“Ensuring robust cyber security controls to address digital frauds, effective management of third-party risks and compliance culture in Financial Institutions is essential. Digital case management systems can streamline judicial processes, reduce delays and improve efficiency. Continuous training and capacity building for law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, and judges are critical for staying ahead of the evolving curve of these crimes. Strengthening these areas can help build a more resilient and transparent legal system that upholds justice and integrity, mitigate the impact of white-collar crime and foster a society where trust and accountability are paramount.”
