Andreasen, who was suspended from her role in 2002 after revealing that the Commission’s accounting system is widely open to fraud, will stand second on the new list ‘Europa Transparant’ in the Dutch European elections. The list is headed by Paul van Buitenen, another EC whistleblower.

‘There is a lot to be done about transparency, accountability and the fight against fraud in the EU,’ said Andreasen. ‘After more than two years where I raised my concerns about the accounting system being vulnerable to fraud, nothing has changed.’
