OLAF admits Palestine missions

European Union anti-fraud agency OLAF has confirmed to Accountancy Age that 'there have been missions (by its officials) carried out in Palestine in January' examining allegations of fraud involving EU funds in the occupied territories.

The probes follow bookkeeping checks made last Spring, following calls for action from some MEPs alleging that part of the monthly payments of €10m made by the EU to the Palestinian Authority have been used to fund terrorist activities.

A temporary European parliament committee has also been investigating the allegations and is waiting for OLAF to issue its conclusions before releasing a report.
