As a victim, you have a right to keep your complaint and the things that happen after it private. The law guarantees that the following information is private1:
- Your identity and address
- The identity and address of the person you accused, as well as the witnesses
- Information about the conciliation (see what this means in the Glossary) or inquiry being made by the committee
- Recommendations of the Internal Committee or the Local Committee
- Action taken by the employer or District Officer
All of the above information cannot be published, communicated, or made known to the public, press, or media in any way1. If any person who is entrusted to handle the complaint, inquiry or recommendations, makes the aforementioned information public, he will be punished in accordance with the service rules of the organization. 20
