European Commission fails to respond to Rule 117 question, re its continued ignoring EU Ombudsman ruling of maladministration
November 6, 2013
On 17 September 2013 an MEP tabled a written European Parliamentary question to the European Commission under rule 117, see http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sides/getDoc.do?pubRef=-%2f%2fEP%2f%2fTEXT%2bWQ%2bE-2013-010581%2b0%2bDOC%2bXML%2bV0%2f%2fEN&language=EN
the question read: “On 2 April 2012, the European Ombudsman made a finding of maladministration against the Commission for failing to respond to requests for an independent external audit of the European Schools. Has the Commission responded to this ruling?”
Rule 117 states that the European Commission has 6 weeks to reply.
To date there is no reply.
Can the Commission just bury its head in the sand?
