When professional EU staff retire from service, there is no so-called extra financial compensation other than what’s in the original contract.
Why do we have a separate formula for European commissioners, which had not been made public until
now by FT Deutschland?
Given budget and fiscal constraints, and public demand for ethical transparency, the current nefarious practice must be terminated and made null and void forthwith – if reguired, by an act of the European Parliament.
