European Commission spokeswoman Dana Spinant appeared cautious in Brussels as she was questioned about the Pandora Papers. "We have seen that in the media as you have," she said in response to questions from reporters. "We are not in a position to make any comments on individual names or individual entities mentioned in those papers."
It is likely that the EU's executive body will, however, show interest in the case of former European Health and Consumer Policy Commissioner John Dalli, of Malta. He was forced to resign from the post in 2012 after being implicated in a lobbying scandal involving tobacco products, though he still receives a pension as a former European commissioner.
