In European countries, children start learning from school about how important it is to be civically active and to notify authorities about any known irregularity. Thus, it is believed, that by involving everyone, it can be built a friendly society for all. Those who report possible cases of corruption are called "whistleblowers" and the only obligation they have is to act in good faith. Subsequently, the authorities are the ones that will determine whether or not there was any wrongdoing in that case.

Starting from the good practices from the West side, recently Moldovan authorities as well, said they were prepared to meet the citizen’s needs. Thus, in different ways, but more insistently, citizens are urged to notify the authorities when they find out that someone has committed a crime. In reality, however, only few answer the call, and those who do so, usually do not get to see the abusers and offenders punished, they are not understood by society and, more so, they are not protected as the law requires.
