Letter to the President of the European Commission regarding fishing subsidies

EU Fishing Subsidies, valued at over 1 billion Euros annually, are strongly implicated as a principal cause of over-fishing. Yet although these payments (EU tax money) are administered by the European Commission, the auditing system for these payments has been made effectively inoperative since 2007. We provide here a letter (dated, 6th May 2013) and a series of questions to Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, in order to try to get to the bottom of this serious matter.

We advise viewing the letter as a PDF file for easy viewing or printing. Alternatively it can be viewed below in a reduced quality format.
