Daily Telegraph’s excellent European Business Editor Ambrose
Evans-Pritchard is to be congratulated for his exclusive story about the leaked
e-mail that shows that the EU still has a “chronically sordid accounting system” and that it sets out to
trash any official who dares to question its method (Daily Telegraph
15th March, 2005.
e-mail was written by the former director general of the Commission’s Internal
Audit Service, Jules Muis who retired last year. It says that the directorate was “in persistent denial of the
real nature and depths of the problems” it faced, choosing “cavity filling
solutions when root canals were called for”.
Mr Muis also robustly defends Marta Andreason, the Spanish
former Chief Accountant who was dismissed after she refused to sign off on the
2001 accounts and made her concerns publicly known.
the e-mail, dated September 4th 2004 Mr Muis described her as “a focused and determined
professional who asked the right questions”.
sacking was the last administrative act of Neil Kinnock, the former EU Vice President
who was supposed to clean up fraud and corruption, but succeeded only in
sacking more whistle-blowers than fraudsters.
Most of the comment about Mr Muis’s e-mail has centred on
the persistent failure to produce honest books, and even the Daily
Telegraph confined the story to the business pages.
expected by their previous performance in showing Tony Blair as a great
statesman and doing a whitewash on the EU and when it suits them to throw a few
scraps of the true facts about the corrupt show across the channel.]
But one of the main striking things about the episode is
that those responsible for the brutal treatment of Mrs Andreason should not
only escape disciplinary action, but have escaped public censure.
standards in public life may have fallen in recent decades, if a senior British
minister had sought to punish a senior official who had shown great courage and
determination in bringing to light a major public scandal the minister would
not have lasted in office very long.
the details of the scandal became known the BBC along with a substantial
section of the British Press, would have harried the Government and demanded an

He had himself been threatened for stepping out of

But when Mr Muis’s e-mail confirmed what many believed to
be the case there was no revisiting of the controversy by the Today
programme nor did any national newspaper doorstep Mr Kinnock-despite the
fact that the former EU Vice President would most certainly have seen Mr Muis’s
e-mail before shamefully sacking her. And,
as far as we are aware, no one attempted to name individual officials
responsible for hounding Mrs Andreasen and Mr Muis.

more remarkable is the ease with which they can escape media criticism for
their single- minded ruthlessness in attempting to crush those who seek to
protect the public interest.
EU accounts may indeed be “sordid” but their behaviour towards individuals who
speak out is more sordid still.
