Cash, corruption and justice: A new public prosecutor for Europe

Fraudsters and public money-siphoners beware: there’s a new sheriff in town. That's the message that the European Union is trying to send, as it creates a new public prosecutor’s office specifically dedicated to catching up with people who defraud EU funds. The Commission estimates that as much as €500 million of EU taxpayers’ money could be clawed back each year. But detractors say it’s another unnecessary layer of European bureaucracy.

Produced by Isabelle Romero, Anais Guerard and Roxane Runel.
