ALTER-EU has urged the Commission to come to a conclusion on the alleged conflict of interest involving its former vice-president Günter Verheugen.


ALTER-EU's demand comes more than three months after Verheugen informed the commission about the European Experience Company, his new lobbying consultancy, and more than eight months after the company started operating. ALTER-EU's spokesperson Paul de Clerck: "We do not understand why the assessment of this case is taking so long."
