“The Report’s findings include the following:
Serious and repeated anomalies in payments for office assistance and services.
Dubious large cash payments are made to staff and service providers over and above salaries.
Improper registration and tax compliance of service providers.
Invoicing is lax or non-existent.
Some MEPs are paying set amounts straight into the coffers of their political parties.
Paying Agents’ expense claims are opaque or even unrecorded.
After news of this report broke and they were accused of perpetrating a “massive” fraud, MEPs voted not to publish it and to keep their expenses scams secret.”
