EU-fraud and OLAF
The European Union finances a wide range of programmes and projects. The improper use of funds provided by the EU budget or the evasion of the taxes, duties and levies, which fund the EU budget directly harms European citizens and prejudices the entire European project. The European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) is the only EU body mandated to detect, investigate and stop fraud with EU funds.
As an RFA, we should be aware and have some notions about this kind of fraud and the existence of OLAF.
Our speaker, Mr. Anton Penneman (OLAF) will give us a capita selecta of EU fraud issues and the role of OLAF.
