Kristalina Georgieva, the corrupt woman at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), may still be in place. The IMF board issued a statement expressing “full confidence” in the Bulgarian economics professor.
The Bulgarian was accused a few years ago, when she was still at the World Bank, of lobbying to get China to perform better in a ranking of countries with an attractive business climate. Georgieva herself has always been vehemently opposed to these accusations. You wouldn’t insist on misrepresenting the facts. According to the board, after reviewing all the evidence, it cannot be determined that Georgieva played an “inappropriate role”.
The board announced that decision Monday (local time), hours after meeting sessions over the past few days about his future. The board said it was confident Georgieva would be committed to “maintaining the highest standards of governance and integrity” at the global lender. According to informed sources, the first woman received support from France and other European countries, who want her to serve her term.
The United States and Japan called for a thorough investigation of the allegations against them. According to Bloomberg News, the United States finally decided on Monday not to target the dismissal of 68-year-old Georgieva.
This week, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank hold their major annual meetings in Washington. President Klaas Knott of De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) will attend on behalf of the Netherlands.
