former EU auditor abused funds

The Court of Justice of the European Union has ruled that Karel Pinxten, a former Belgian minister and former auditor of the European Court of Auditors (ECA), abused ECA funds during his tenure and therefore loses two-thirds of his pension. Pinxten is alleged to have used public funds for private travel. The attorney general said not all of the allegations were proven, but the facts warranted action.
