Kinnock faces European accounting pressure

Pressure is growing on European Commissioner Neil Kinnock over his handling of Marta Andreasen, the dissident former chief accountant who went public with criticisms of the commission's accounting system.

Andreasen has publicly alleged that there are huge flaws in the system and has accused Kinnock of trying to shut her up.

Disciplinary action has been launched against Andreasen for breaking staff regulations, but a spokesman for Kinnock has refused to elaborate on the charges she is likely to face.

According to reports in the press, the commission has claimed it already knew about the faults highlighted by Andreasen and work to put them right was under way.

MEPs have also expressed concern about Andreasen’s treatment after questions were raised at the commission over whether she could appear before a committee of members of the European parliament while she was facing a disciplinary action.
