UN watchdog scrutinises UNEP boss Erik Solheim’s travelling expenses

In an on-going review, auditors at the UN have called for Erik Solheim, head of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), to refund part of his travelling costs. A devastating auditor’s report, cited by the Oslo-based daily Aftenposten, charges that Solheim was on the road for 529 days over the last two years and racked up a bill of NOK 4 million (USD 490,000).
