                    The European Commission released its proposal aimed at setting reforms of the European Union anti-fraud office, OLAF.[2] The objectives of the proposal are to further strengthen the procedural guarantees in place for all persons under investigation by the European Anti-Fraud Office (referred to in the regulation as “persons concerned”) and to take into account the special way in which members of EU institutions were elected or appointed as well as their special responsibilities which may justify specific provisions aimed at ensuring the proper functioning of the institutions to which they belong.[3]
