The president of the Assembly of EULEX judges, Malcolm Simmons, has resigned due to corruption within the mission. The news was published on Thursday by the French daily Le Monde.
British judge Malcolm Simmons told French daily Le Monde that over the past few weeks he has reported several cases of corruption within the mission.
“In particular, I’ve raised the issue of my email being hacked by another EULEX judge. I asked the UK Foreign Office and the EU to refer it to the police. They both refused to support me,” Simmons told Le Monde.
He accused EULEX of being a political mission.
“The EULEX is not a mission to promote the rule of law. It is a political mission. Anyone who thinks otherwise is either naive or stupid,” said Simmons.
He was part of the EULEX since the beginning of the mission in 2008 and in 2014 he was appointed president of the Assembly of EULEX judges.
