Decision in case 1350/2018/MDC on the European Investment Bank’s alleged failure to address properly an allegation that an administrative inquiry was tainted by a conflict of interest

Jeudi | 25 juillet 2019

The case concerned the European Investment Bank’s (EIB) alleged failure to address properly an allegation that an administrative inquiry launched against the complainant was tainted by a conflict of interest.

The European Ombudsman found that the EIB had provided sufficient evidence to refute the allegation of a conflict of interest. The Ombudsman therefore closed the case with a finding of no maladministration.

Decision in case 1324/2017/LM on how the European Commission appointed the Director General of its Internal Audit Service

Mardi | 23 juillet 2019

The case concerned how the European Commission appointed its internal auditor, who had formerly served as the Commission’s accounting officer. The complainant contended that, according to international audit standards, internal auditors should not assess activities for which they were responsible over the course of the previous year. Thus, the Commission should not have appointed the former accounting officer as internal auditor before this ‘cooling off period’ of one year had elapsed.

The Commission argued that the cooling off period did not apply to this case. However, in order to avoid any perception that there could be a conflict of interest, the Commission ensured that the internal auditor would not be in charge of any audit related to his previous responsibilities.

The Ombudsman found that the Commission had put in place adequate measures to prevent any conflict of interest arising. She thus closed the inquiry with a finding of no maladministration. 

Décision dans l’affaire 648/2019/MIG concernant le refus du Parlement européen d’accorder au public l’accès à un avis juridique portant sur la situation contractuelle des professeurs de langues travaillant au Parlement européen

Lundi | 15 juillet 2019

L’affaire concernait le refus du Parlement européen d’accorder au public l’accès à un avis juridique portant sur la situation contractuelle des professeurs de langues travaillant au Parlement européen au motif que la divulgation de ce document porterait atteinte à la protection des procédures juridictionnelles et des avis juridiques.

La Médiatrice a estimé que le Parlement européen avait des raisons suffisantes pour refuser l’accès du public sur la base de la protection des avis juridiques dans cette affaire.

La Médiatrice a par conséquent classé l’affaire en concluant à l’absence de mauvaise administration.

Decision in case 595/2019/TE on how the European Parliament dealt with a request for public access to documents relating to a South Africa-European Union Inter-Parliamentary Meeting

Lundi | 15 juillet 2019

The case concerned a request for public access to documents held by the European Parliament related to the 26th South Africa-EU Inter-Parliamentary Meeting in Cape Town.

Parliament identified three documents as falling within the scope of the complainant’s request. It gave full access to one document, provided an internet link to the second document and gave partial access to the third document. Parliament argued that full public access to the third document would undermine the protection of the public interest as regards international relations. The complainant contested Parliament’s refusal to give full access to that document.

The Ombudsman inquired into the issue, inspected the document and found no maladministration in Parliament’s handling of the request.

Decision in case 242/2018/KT on how the European Personnel Selection Office accommodated a left‐handed candidate in a selection procedure for EU civil servants

Vendredi | 05 juillet 2019

The case concerned unequal treatment of left-handed candidates in a selection procedure for EU civil servants organised by the European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO). The complainant complained that, unlike right-handed candidates, he was given a computer mouse without a scroll wheel.  

The Ombudsman found that the complainant´s argument about being disadvantaged was valid. She therefore proposed that EPSO make sure to provide left-handed and right-handed candidates with computer mice with the same technical functionalities.

In response to the Ombudsman´s proposal, EPSO stated that new computer mice with the same functionalities have already been made available for all selection procedures. The Ombudsman welcomes the measures taken by EPSO and closes the case as resolved.
