Throughout the investigation, all interviews were carried out in full accordance with OLAF procedures and legal requirements, in the presence of two or more investigators.
In accordance with these procedures, all persons interviewed were given the opportunity to review the interview record and to make corrections.
After the first interview, which had lasted for several hours, Ms Kimberley was offered a short lunch on the same premises at which the interview had taken place, while the record of the interview was being completed. She was given the opportunity to review the draft record and she amended it.
Several months later, Ms Kimberley was interviewed on two further occasions, in the presence of her lawyer. She confirmed the evidence given at the first interview.
