Question Protection against supervisor retaliatory for reporting her illegal activities

Gov_Employee created the topic: Protection against supervisor retaliatory for reporting her illegal activities
(1) Under Article 2, Sec. 27 of the 1987 Constitution, the State shall maintain honesty and integrity in the public service and shall take positive and effective measures against graft and corruption.
(2) Presidential Proclamation No. 591 declares every month of May as Anti-Graft and Corruption Awareness Month.
Every Monday morning we religiously recite the Panunumpa ng Kawani ng Gobyerno giving emphasize to "MAGSASALITA AKO LABAN SA KATIWALIAN...", hence we government employee are mandated by the law to report any illegal and unethical practices in the government particularly in our office. We have moral, social and legal duties to inform the public on what we believe wastage in public resources and revenues committed by fellow government employee be it our immediate supervisor.
(3) Section 4, Chapter 6 of the 1987 Constitution states that no law shall be passed abridging the freedom of speech, of expression or the Press, or the right of the people peaceable to assemble and petition the Government for the redress of their grievance.
May 2017, during our regular office meeting attended by representatives from our personnel and union... i take the initiative and courage to address abuse of authority, negligence to duties and oppressions made by our OIC. I made the statements in good faith without malice and with reasonable purpose and cause. I communicated it with my officemates that i believe have the corresponding duty for they also mandated by the law and to authorities like representative from our Union and Personnel Office for they are part of our agency's Grievance Committee, so they have the power to redress the grievance.
After two months i received a Resolution coming from MTC for i am acussed of GRAVE ORAL DEFAMATION. I paid the necessary bond amounting to P6,000 for my provisional liberty.
i am denied of my right to a PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION. the complainant (my immediate supervisor-OIC) and her cohorts presented a malicious and false statements. They failed to make full disclosure of the facts. The complaint of grave oral defamation is made with MALICE, RETALIATION for REPORTING HER ILLEGAL AND UNETHICAL PRACTICES.
How could it be grave oral defamation if i made my statement without malice and improper intention, in good faith and with reasonable purpose. I communicated it to persons with corresponding duties and to authorities to redress the grievance.
What about her (complainant)? how come isn't she's liable in violating the following laws:
RA 3019- Anti Graft and Corrupt Practices Act,
RA 6713- Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards,
Presidential Decree No. 46,
Article 211, Section 2, Title 7 of the Revised Penal Code or RA 3815 and
RA 9485- Anti Red Tape Act
Are there any protection i can avail against my immediate supervisor retaliatory actions?

Considering that the subject matter of your concern involves more serious allegations and legal issues, we deemed it appropriate that you may opt to consider filing a proper complaint against the official/employee complained of, for proper determination and evaluation of the case. As such, please be guided by Section 10-13, Rule 3 of the 2017 Rules on Administrative Cases in the Civil Service (2017 RACCS)

It is always true that when you observe irregularities in your office you will not get away from threats like contract will not renewed (for JO and COS) because you are complaining, etc. How are we protected from this so we can have courage to inform the government what's really going on in the public office?
