Bruno Dethomas - wysoki rangą przedstawiciel Komisji Europejskiej, który jeszcze niedawno kierował programem Partnerstwo Wschodnie - po zakończeniu pracy w Komisji Europejskiej znalazł sobie dochodową posadę w agencji, która lobbuje w interesie rządu Rosji. Taką infromację zamieścił w swoim raporcie ALTER-EU - Sojusz na rzecz przejrzystości lobbingu i uregulowań prawnych dotyczących etyki.

The Alliance for Lobby Transparency and Ethics Regulation (ALTER-EU) has today launched two new publications aimed at improving ethics and transparency in the European Parliament.
Jan Eric Frydman arrives with a CV that reads like the dream biography of an international corporate player, and is set to have a key role in steering the Commissioner's approach to TTIP.
NGOs have today responded to the Commission's reply to the European Ombudsman's recommendations on how to better handle revolving door cases within the Commission. In particular, they echo the demand for more transparency.
The European Commission directorate-general at the heart of the 'cash for influence' claims by UK MP Jack Straw (TAXUD - taxation and customs union), has now released to Corporate Europe Observatory information showing its lobby contacts in 2013 with the now disgraced ex-minister. The documents illustrate how Straw tried to use his influential name and impressive CV to help open lobby doors. They also expose the loopholes in EU lobby rules.
The European Commission is publicly talking up its climate ambition on the road to the UN climate talks in Paris this December. But a new briefing by Corporate Europe Observatory and Friends of the Earth Europe shows that in reality, its recently-established advisory group for the evaluation of shale gas development is opening the back door to fracking across Europe, despite massive public opposition.
On 17 April, Via Campesina, the D190-20 Alliance and Corporate Europe Observatory held a lobby tour around the Brussels European quarter, highlighting the corporate lobbies who are pushing an aggressive agenda around TTIP (the EU-US trade deal currently being negotiated). There was a particular emphasis on the impacts TTIP will have, if passed, for farmers' livelihoods, food standards, and for the way food is produced in the EU. The next negotiation round will take place on 20 April, this time in New York.
New report by CEO and Friends of the Earth Europe on the European Commission's new advisory network on fracking, which is opening the back door to shale gas expansion across Europe, despite massive public opposition.
In response to the criticism of the controversial investor rights in TTIP, a number of law firms recently founded a think tank designed to protect the current investment arbitration system: The European Federation for Investment Law and Arbitration (EFILA).
