16/10/2012


Commenting on the announcement of the resignation of Commissioner John Dalli following an investigation by the EU’s antifraud office OLAF, the president of the European Liberal Democrat and Reform Party Sir Graham Watson MEP said:

 

"I welcome the move by Commissioner Dalli to stand down in light of allegations made in order to allow investigations to proceed.

If former Commissioners had behaved in the same way, the Commission and the European Union would have been spared much embarrassment."
