Witness Protection is National Security Issue

Secrecy of Witness Identity is One of My Proposed Solution to Graft and Corruption.

It is important that Government should spend in communication and advocacy on the proper way to file complaints against corruption. And in this country where taking of a human life is cheap, it is more important that Government should have a reliable Complainant-Witness Identity Protection Program.

Graft and Corruption is an issue of National Security because it makes the people distrust their government. When people distrust their government, there will be political rallies, people will not support government programs, people will not be motivated to follow the law, and people will find it unreasonable to pay correct taxes.

To eradicate graft and corruption, the identities of complainants and witnesses should be protected by classifying it SECRET under the interest of National Security.
