The public administration employee should announce his/her suspicion of unlawful behavior of public authority or corruption to the Public Defender of Rights (ombudsman).
If a public officer could announce corruption suspicion in public administration to the ombudsman, that is to an office outside hierarchical structure of public administration, neither the position of the announcing public officer could be jeopardised nor the prosecution of the announced corruption. Thanks to reception of these announcements, the ombudsman office could obtain more information about dysfunctioning of public administration against which it shall be proposing remedies.
