Poland and Commission clash over official accused of harassment at EU body

Controversy comes as the European Parliament is set to reject financial approval for the EESC. Zdechovský, who is leading the parliament's budget oversight for the EESC, said the EU body had done too little to help the victims of alleged misconduct and adopt measures that would allow it to sanction EESC members in the future. "Why haven't victims of the incident been offered help so that they could resume their work in their previous units or positions? Why hasn't even a scandal of such a magnitude speeded up a lengthy reform of the code of conduct for members?" he asked, adding: "Unfortunately, still too many statements of the EESC's secretariat and presidency only stay on the paper."

My story

I have always been interested in politics. That is why I decided in 2006 to join KDU-ČSL, Christian and Democratic Union – Czechoslovak People\'s Party. Although I ran successful business dealing with crisis management, I realized that if I really wanted to change something, I had to be a firm part of it. Therefore, in 2014, I ran for the European Parliament as number three on the list and I succeeded. I became a Member of the European Parliament. In 2019, thanks to your support, I made it again. This is why I can still be MEP to protect your interests.
