OLAF in 2014: a strong investigative performance bringing tangible results for EU taxpayers
OLAF Press Release - 2 June 2015
In 2014, the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) achieved excellent results in the fight against fraud across Europe. OLAF completed a high number of investigations while continuing to reduce their overall duration. It issued a record number of recommendations in over five years. The Office recommended the recovery of EUR 901 million, which should progressively return to the EU budget and help fund other projects. The results reported for 2014, presented today, confirm that OLAF has become increasingly efficient over the last years, bringing tangible results for EU taxpayers.
