The EU is knowingly paying Palestinian civil servants who have not worked in years, its spending watchdog says.
The Luxembourg-based European Court of Auditors published its findings in a report, out on Wednesday (11 December), on the EUs Pegase program. It noted that the Union has paid the Palestinian Authority (PA) around 200 million a year between 2008 and 2012 to cover public sector salaries. The money has funded approximately half of the PAs 170,000 civil servants and pensioners.
Beneficiaries are supposed to meet basic EU criteria. But in Gaza, up to 24 percent of people on the payroll of the PAs health and education ministries did not show up to work in 2010.
