Chris Milsom acts for former EULEX prosecutor in whistleblowing case

Chris Milsom acts for former EULEX prosecutor in whistleblowing case

Cloisters’ barrister, Chris Milsom, is acting for Marie Bamieh, in her whistleblowing claim against the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX) in the Central London Employment Tribunal.

Maria Bamieh, a former prosecutor at EULEX, alleges she was suspended after she blew the whistle on serious corruption taking place within the EU Agency and filed requests to start a full investigation into senior colleagues she suspected of taking bribes to shut down criminal cases.

Ms Bamieh, who joined EULEX in 2008, claims she suffered a campaign of detrimental treatment and was dismissed in October 2014 on suspicion of “leaking” classified documents to a local newspaper in Kosovo.

Ms Bamieh denies this accusation maintaining that she was not the source of the leaks.
