Holland to refuse to sign off EU accounts

The Netherlands will again refuse to approve the European Union’s accounts, finance minister Wouter Bos told a radio programme on Monday night.

The EU’s own audit office has already said that the spending of billions of euros has not been properly accounted for in the organisation’s 2007 books.
It is the 14th year in a row that the accounts have been criticised by the auditor.
The Netherlands is the only country which is refusing to vote for the EU accounts to be passed, NOS tv said.
