EC in legal action over public spending rules

European Commission attempts to enforce implementation of EU accounting rules for public spending on Sweden, Austria and Czech Republic

Legal action is being taken by the European Commission to force Sweden,
Austria and the Czech Republic to implement European Union (EU) accounting rules
regarding public spending.

Brussels is particularly vexed with Sweden, sending it a formal complaint
that it has flouted a 2004 European Court of Justice (ECJ) order to properly
implement directive 2000/52/EC on transparent relations between governments and
other public bodies.

If Sweden continues to ignore the ruling it could face large recurring fines
until it complies.

Austria is facing a first formal warning to comply with the same directive,
and the Czech Republic a warning to comply with this legislation and three
associated EU laws.
