Request I

Dear Mme Viviane Reding,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

- relevant documents related to handover to your successor of the file on irregularities mentioned in this letter http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/477/r... sent to your former Head of Private Office Martin Selmayr, current Head of Private Office of President Junker (transitional team http://ec.europa.eu/about/juncker-commis...). I seek to access handover documents or in absence, documents revealing role of Martin Selmayr in that communication (more precisely I seek access to documents revealing why Martin Selmayr was informed of such irregularities in accounts of an institute and if he informed you in your then role of Vice president of the Commission; and if it was part of his job to address irregularities from institutes located Denmark).

Dear Martin,

Happy New Year.

I write this e-mail to inform you about an issue that may develop this week in relation to my previous position as Director of the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR):

The Institute was since 2002 part of a larger organizational structure, The Danish Centre for International Studies and Human Rights (DCISM). The two institutes The Danish Institute for International Studies and DIHR was thus linked by the DCISM structure, which administered the institutes. A complicated structure, which in recent years did not offer much added value, thus the new Danish Government has now decided to separate the two institutes.

In preparation of this process a deficit in relation to a small number of projects was disclosed. Today it is assessed that the loss is app 3 million Danish Crowns (€400.000) over a 12 years period. The total turn over in the period was app 1.000 million Danish Crown (€ 135 million). The irregularities seem at this stage to have been carried out by one person in the administration but without any personal gains. Nobody in the management including myself was informed about this accountants “creative” approach to financial administration.

The State Auditors like any other institution receiving considerable state funds regularly audited the DIHR/DCISM and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had a supervisory function. Apart from that DIHR contracted Price Waterhouse Coopers on a long-term contract and other firms to assist in the auditing of specific projects. None of these auditors have previously detected any irregularities in this regard.

The Institute was administratively very well run and projects correctly accounted for as stated in several evaluations of the institute, however it is beyond doubt that irregularities have taken place regarding a small number of projects. That is now being sorted out by the State Auditors and their report will be released on Tuesday 24th.

Nonetheless, the new Minister of Development Assistance has decided to make a press release tomorrow (Monday) at 11.00 regarding the issue. Since the Institute always has attracted public interest it will most likely be reflected in the media.

If I am contacted I will shortly stress my surprise and that it is all new to me. At the same time I will underline that it is a single incident in a big organisation. But as you know, one can never predict the perspective, media will find of interest.

I will keep you informed and if you need further details please do not hesitate to call me. Paul Nemitz has been informed as well.

Best regards,
Morten
