Andreasen’s future at EC in the hands of Kinnock

Link: Andreasen to fight gagging order

Andreasen was interviewed late last month by a pre-selection panel headed by former European Court of Auditors president Jan Karlsson. She has heard nothing since.

A shortlist of two or three applicants will now be considered by a nominations committee. But even if the committee selects her, its decision is not binding and the final call will be made by Kinnock.

Andreasen was suspended as chief accountant in 2001 by Kinnock (pictured above with EC president Romano Prodi) after she refused to sign off the commission’s accounts.

She told Accountancy Age that her current suspension could have a direct bearing on her application for the internal audit post. ‘If they feel I am not going to be re-incorporated, they will dismiss my application,’ she said.
