EU whistleblower blows whistle on own party

Whistleblowing MEP Marta Andreasen has resigned from her position as UKIP
treasurer after blowing the whistle on the state of the party’s finances.

The former chief accountant of the European Commission and Accountancy Age
Personality of the Year stood down after discovering “breaches in the
procedures” she implemented at UKIP, reported the Times.

Andreasen, who was sacked from her position at the EC after exposing the
parlous state of EU accounts, became treasurer of the anti-EU party in 2007 in
order to “restore faith” in the party’s finances.

She blamed party chairman Paul Nuttall for her decision to resign, saying she
disagreed with “how the party is being managed at the level of the
chairmanship”.
