OLAF investigation into Eurostat

Press Release OLAF/06/2002, 8 July 2002

Today, 8 July 2002 in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1073/1999, the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF), has forwarded to the Procureur de l'état of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg information obtained by the Office during two investigations into matters liable to result in criminal proceedings concerning possible frauds regarding contracts concluded between Eurostat - the Statistical Office of the European Communities and private companies. OLAF has carried out these two investigations in the framework of a number of investigations undertaken into Eurostat.

OLAF wishes to make it clear that information obtained in the course of its investigations is protected by the relevant Community and national provisions. It follows that any further comment by OLAF about investigations until these have been concluded would be a breach of the law by OLAF.
