EU lost nearly 1bn euros from budget
 
Quote:

The EU's anti-fraud agency Olaf tried to recover €901m (£654m) of misspent EU budget funds last year, including €198m that went to a mismanaged Spanish port.

Olaf said another €49m that the EU had earmarked for the port expansion at El Musel, near Gijon in northern Spain, should not be paid.

Two senior port managers are suspected of fraud in the port project.

Acting on Olaf advice, EU member states managed to recover €206.5m in 2014. But the total EU budget was €142.7bn.

An Olaf spokesman told the BBC that the €206.5m recovered was the result of investigations launched in previous years.

The figures came out in an Olaf report on anti-fraud operations in 2014.

Not all the misspent funds went missing through fraud - sometimes money was lost because of accounting errors.

The total of €901m that Olaf asked member states to recover last year was more than double the corresponding 2013 figure.

Of that 2014 total, €476.5m had disappeared from EU structural funds - also called the cohesion budget, intended to improve infrastructure in the EU's poorest regions.

It's only 50 million or so per country and well the BBC probably spend more than that on the unnecessary corporate catering....

I reckon they are very similar and hold us in similar contempt.

One bn euros across the whole of Europe 'missing'? That's nothing. That's just in the 'noise' of accountancy on that scale I'd guess. The British National Health Service alone is about £110bn or about €145bn.

I suspect any real fraud is on a much bigger scale than that.

IMO the whole of the EU "budget" is "misspent",


based on legalised theft,
extortion,
and the pretence of a mandate.
