EU suspends former chief accountant

Link: EC whistleblower to resign

Andreasen had already been moved from her post and disciplined after she claimed the EC’s £63bn budget was ‘out of control’ and began a campaign to change the EU accounting system.

A decision on whether to dismiss her will be taken in ‘several months’ time, according to a report in today’s Financial Times.

The harsh treatment of Andreasen was also a factor in the resignation of whistleblowing internal auditor Paul van Buitenen, who has stepped down after becoming disillusioned with reforms at the EC.
