Fight against fraud
Protecting the financial interests of the European Union (EU) is a priority for the European institutions. The EU combats fraud with a series of legislative acts that relate to currency counterfeiting, violations of intellectual property rights and corruption – both in Europe and internationally. A specialised anti-fraud office (OLAF) is tasked with conducting anti-fraud investigations. The legal basis for the fight against fraud is Article 325 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.
