This book presents, for the first time, a thorough discussion of the legal aspects of combatting fraud in the Community. Based on an analysis of European and national developments, a study has been made to see whether and how European cooperation can lead to the harmonization of economic criminal law on a Community level.The First part deals with the enforcement duties of the Member States and the supervisory powers of the European Commission. It analyses the community's anti-fraud policy on the basis of the activities of the Court of Auditors, the European Parliament and the European Commission.The second part deals with the already existing legal provision in the Member States which enable penalties to be imposed in cases of fraud against the Community. The criminal law and criminal procedure codification and the special statutes in Germany, France, Belgium and The Netherlands, are analyzed in order to determine to what extent national penal provisions are geared to, or applicable in, combatting EEC fraud.
