In a meeting with the Disciplinary Procedure Services of the Commission, he was told that many of the officials who are accused of wrongdoing in his book called 'Fight for Europe' would open legal cases against him and they would receive commission money to do so.Van Buitenen has already been reprimanded for his actions in disclosing documents which showed massive financial mismanagement and corruption within the commission, which led to all 20 commissioners under Jacques Santer to resign in March.But although this latest crisis threatens to cost him his job and a plunge him into an expensive legal fight with the commission, he does not regret his actions.He said: 'I definitely would do the same again. Although rules and regulations are important, you should never forget your conscience.'Although he admitted that many people who have stood by him dwindled, he said he was grateful for the support of ordinary citizens and other members of the accounting and auditing profession.His book is released this week in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Publication in France is almost arranged and negotiations for translation into English are in preparation.The book's 13 chapters and mention specific areas such as the tourism department which were found to be losing millions of euros through mismanagement.It coincides with the imminent launch of a position paper by the European Confederation of Institute's of Internal Auditing about the auditor and fraud prevention in the European Union.
