EU Fraud

More from the Telegraph on fraud at the EU, how easy it is and how much of it there is:
"A fraud scandal brought down the entire Commission in 1999. Three years later, a pair of whistleblowers exposed the disappearance of �3m at the Eurostat data office, in a racket described by investigators as the tip of 'a vast enterprise of looting'. Yet Mr Muis reveals that even now the Commission has 'systemic control weaknesses' and rewards officials for turning a blind eye to graft. The EU may even have 'slipped backwards'."
