Civil Servant who lost €3.6 Billion remains nominated to EU Court of Auditors!

The EU accounts remain unaudited year after year after year, just one small scandal amongst the mass of corruption that surrounds seemingly all with which the EU becomes involved.

Up to this point ordinary EU citizens may have assumed this was all just innocent muddle, but read this article in this morning's Irish Times! Now consider these quotes:

PUBLIC ACCOUNTS COMMITTEE: THE GOVERNMENT will not alter its plans to recommend the Department of Finance’s top civil servant for a senior European Union job despite calls for his resignation over an accounting error involving €3.6 billion.

Government sources said that secretary general Kevin Cardiff will remain its recommendation as Ireland’s nomination on the European Court of Auditors early next year.
