English term or phrase:whistleblower protections
the government must punish corruption and insulate the judiciary from political pressure through whistleblower protections
Explanation: A 'whitleblower' here is pretty much used to mean - a person who discovers an illegal action and reports it to his superior at work.
My answer is merely to clarify to those not familiar with the expression, 'wistleblower'. However Jorge Alvarez Spencers' answer pretty much covers the meaning. The expressions, chota and soplón, are mere examples of jargon words to describe it in spanish in some countries. So please do not use. :-)
