European Parliament: Are the Quaestors doing their job?

After looking at the rules on the Quaestors of the European Parliament and failing to find more exact guidelines on their duties, we have to turn to sources outside the EP to assess the accountability and probity of this important institution and the effectiveness of its officers.

Times Online features the findings of an audit report, sadly leaked instead of being published by the EP, which is less than flattering for members of the European Parliament (MEPs).

‘Secret report reveals how MEPs make millions’ was published 22 February 2009, and it recalls the earlier instance of non-publication we have discussed on this blog:

My two words of advice to the European Parliament are: Come clean!
