Whistleblower loses court battle after exposing £3m fraud at Eurostat

A whistleblower who helped expose fraud at Eurostat, the EU data office, was
denied redress yesterday for the difficulties she suffered after helping expose
the £3m looting of funds.

Dorte Schmidt-Brown has been on sick leave since exposing the fraud, having
fled home after threats and harassment, The Daily Telegraph reports
today.

No Eurostat official has been punished for the fraud, which occurred more
than three years ago.

Schmidt-Brown was ordered to pay her own costs.
