Secretary of defense humiliated in skandalesag: 'She needs to show who's boss'

It is a scandal that has hit the Defence ministry, where the control of the uk continental shelf have been highly deficient.

the Criticism has been fierce in the case, which is a question of possible fraud of millions of tax dollars.

It is, therefore, to put it mildly-a møgsag to secretary of defense Trine Team (S), which at the same time is furious that her ministry has known of the problem for several months without telling her about it. Although she was first informed on Wednesday night this week.

"I have a huge anger over the fact that I haven't got anything to know about this here," she says to Berlingske.

"There is someone who has sat and thought that the information is not essential to pass on."

And it is one of the most dangerous situations that a minister can experience, " explains B. T.'s political commentator, Sea Marie Serup.

"She must ensure that the ministry is working for her and does not become a selvbestyrende device, which does not believe that the minister should be involved in too much. Trine Team must put down heavily in the chair now and show who's boss," she says.

Several employees in the department of defense Ejendomsstyrelse, FES, has been reported to the police in the matter of possible fraud and corruption for up to 1.8 million dollars. In a new report from The auditor general, it appears that the control of procurement has been decidedly out of control.

No one has verified the purchases, which have had errors in 54 out of the 64 cases in 2018, which has been criticized in sharp terms by the public accounts committee. The problems of this caliber, which has gone under the forsvarsministerens radar, according to the Sea Marie Serup a system that covers up its own errors.

the Case is at the same time so severely that it can not be excluded, that it will have staffing implications.

And it may very well happen, admits Trine Team itself.

Traditionally, the ends of this type of scandals namely either with hard warnings or dismissals.

"the Case is so serious that it normally will lead to human consequences," sounds from the Sea Marie Serup.

Even more serious account it is also a picture of a society that does not function, she believes.

"In the wake of Brita Nielsen case shows that a public administration that is outdated and unprofessional."

For the Trine Team, as the minister will probably not have much effect, because she is relatively new to the post.

the Sea Marie Serup believes, however, that you will follow closely in this, as she does now.

"She needs to show clear leadership and action now."

the secretary of defense has, after the case has started to roll, sent a team from the ministry to the FES in Hjørring, denmark to investigate the matter further.

in Addition, Trine Team launched a process internally in the ministry about the fact that she, as the minister has not been briefed.
