The Commission today said she had caused ‘an irremediable breach of the trust’ which it ‘is entitled to expect from its officials’. This ‘made it impossible to maintain any employment relationship between her and the institution’.
In a statement, Brussels cited charges regarding ‘her unsubstantiated statements, made against Commission officials and a Commissioner (vice president Neil Kinnock)… and … her failure to seek authorisation for public statements that reflected on her position in the institution’.
It added that she had failed ‘to disclose essential and accurate information relating to her previous employment and the circumstances of her departure from that employment’, a reference to her previous work at the OECD.
