The investigation is focusing on possible fraud involved in the purchase of computers and software, spokesman Johannes Thuy told the NRC on Tuesday.
Sources within Eurojust told the paper the main suspect is a British national who may have given contracts to friends. The organisation, established in 2002, has a workforce of some 500.
