Disclosure of information on possible infringements affecting the Ministry of Justice


If you wish to inform the Ministry of Justice of facts that may constitute an infringement affecting it and that you have acquired as a result of an employment or professional relationship with it, you use this channel to communicate or consult it if you have already submitted it, by accessing the form through the link.

Analysis of the information received:

The Ministry of Justice will analyse the information received to determine the treatment to be given to it, conducting the verifications and actions it deems necessary.

The information received will not be processed:

1.º When the facts reported lack all credibility, the information submitted is scarce, its description excessively generic and vague, or there is missing evidence to allow for a reasonable verification and a minimum determination of the treatment to be given to said facts.

2.º When the facts reported do not constitute an infringement of the legal system included in the material scope of application of Law 2/2023, of 20 February, regulating the protection of ´persons who report regulatory violations and the fight against corruption, described in this channel.

3.º When the information has no foundation or there are, in the opinion of the manager, reasonable indications of having been obtained through the commission of an offence. In this case, in addition to the non-admission, the information will be sent immediately to the Public Prosecutor's office.

4.º When the information does not contain new and significant data on infringements concerning previous information for which the corresponding procedures have been concluded unless there are new factual or legal circumstances that justify a different follow-up.

5.º When the processing of information is not the responsibility of the Ministry of Justice.

Guarantee of Confidentiality

Except when expressly requested otherwise by the person communicating the information, their identity will be kept completely confidential, so that it will not be disclosed to any person.

To this end, in all communications, verification actions or requests for documentation carried out to third parties, the data relating to the identity of the person who sent the information will be omitted, as well as any other that could lead total or partially to their identification, and the same will be done with those referring to the data corresponding to any third party mentioned in the information provided.

Likewise, when proceedings have to be transferred to other bodies in order for them to process the corresponding procedures, the provisions of the previous paragraph shall apply to the documentation sent to those other bodies, except in the case of the judicial authority, the Public Prosecutor's Office, or the competent Administrative Authority in the framework of a criminal, disciplinary or punitive investigation. In these cases, prior to revealing their identity, a letter explaining the reasons for the disclosure will be sent to the informant, unless such information could compromise the investigation or the judicial procedure.

The processing of personal data that derive from the application of Law 2/2023 will be governed by the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council, of 27 April 2016, in the Organic Law 3/2018, of 5 December, on the Protection of Personal Data and Guarantee of Digital Rights, in the Organic Law 7/2021, of 26 May, on the protection of personal data processed for the purposes of prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution of criminal offences and the execution of criminal sanctions.

Non-Interest Condition of the Informant:

It must be considered that the informant, by informing the existence of a possible criminal or administrative offence, does not have the status of interested party, but of collaborator with the Administration, so that the investigations are always initiated ex officio.

The informant has no standing to file appeals or claims concerning the results of said proceedings. ​
