Report on protection of EU's financial interests

27-06-2013

In 2011, Member States reported fraudulent irre­gu­la­rities against the EU budget with a financial impact of €404 million. A number of legislative initiatives are currently under way to strengthen the fight against fraud and other illegal activities affecting the EU's financial interests. This is in part due to the Lisbon Treaty, which reinforced the EU's legal options in this field.
