Denunciation (from Latin denuntiare, to denounce) is an open public accusation or reporting a person or a group of persons to public authorities, often done anonymously for low political or personal motives, on which the informant has a personal interest or hopes to gain personal benefits.
A person who denounces can be called denouncer, informer, informant or by various legal and slang terms, such as snitch.
