Whistle-blower Support

We greatly value contributions of information from the public. In particular, inside information from people in positions within political, economic and social power structures who are privy to information about corrupt or unjust practices within those structures could save people who are suffering from such corruption and injustice.

We hope you will share information with us. We gather information and report from the position of people who are suffering harm. We don’t claim to take a “neutral” stance.

If you have information for us, we offer the following methods for transmission. Please read the notices below and choose the appropriate method.

Japan has a law prohibiting dismissal and other unfair treatment of workers who act as whistleblowers for the public good (Whistleblower Protection Act: http://www.caa.go.jp/planning/koueki/). We recommend against using a computer, cellphone or smartphone provided by your organization when providing information. When transmitting information, please use your own computer, cellphone or smartphone. Otherwise, your organization could discover that you have provided information to us and find an excuse to dismiss or otherwise punish you. When you contact us, please make sure to protect yourself.

We have our own Facebook and Twitter pages, but their purpose is for us to convey information to you. We do not use SNS as a tool for exchanging information in our investigative journalism activities.

We cannot guarantee that we will report on the information you provide. Please understand that the Waseda Chronicle will investigate the information you provide and make a determination regarding whether to publish it.

We vow that once we begin to follow a lead, we will do everything in our power to protect our sources and fight those who oppose them.

Tor

Tor is used to make IP addresses anonymous. Even we will not know where a source connected from. You can use Tor by downloading it at https://www.torproject.org/. You can further protect your anonymity by using Tor in conjunction with one of the email encryption services suggested below.

ProtonMail and Tutanota

ProtonMail (https://protonmail.com/) and Tutanota (https://tutanota.com/#header) are email encryption services based in Switzerland and Germany, respectively. A free account can be easily created with either service. File attachments are also encrypted. Even the provider cannot view the content of sent and received messages. We have set up accounts with both services for encrypted email transactions. You can use either address to provide us with information.
