MARTA Andreasen, the EU whistleblower, is facing fresh allegations from EU commissioner Neil Kinnock. The EU chief accountant, suspended on full pay since August 2002 after warning that the 100 billion (£69.89 billion) budget was open to fraud, has now been told she faces further allegations of speaking at conferences without permission.

Andreasen is already banned from commission buildings while Kinnock decides whether to take any further action against her. Andreasen was last week voted 2003 Personality of the Year by readers of Accountancy Age magazine and accepting the trophy she thanked the UK profession for supporting her campaign.
