The Nordic Council of Ministers has convened a press conference on Wednesday under the heading “Significant problems with the Nordic Council of Ministers’ financial administration”.
The brief call states that work on the Council’s accounts for 2020 has been delayed. Therefore, it could only be given to the National Audit Office in Denmark in June, and the National Audit Office has not completed its audit.
The Danish National Audit Office has previously been out with the tear after the Nordic Council of Ministers.
In January 2020, Denmark decided to withhold its payments to the Council of Ministers due to a concern about whether the 2018 accounts are correct. It is a particular accounting program in particular that has caused concern.
Auditing firm BDO began reviewing 13,700 documents from that time from both the Nordic Council of Ministers, the Nordic Council and the Nordic Culture Fund.
Here, 17 transactions were found for DKK 157,000, where it could not be confirmed whether the transactions had ended with the right recipients.
In addition, criticisms of procedures and inadequate control were raised when making payments to other accounts.
Denmark then paid its contribution.
