폴 울포비츠 세계은행 총재가 세은 직원인 여자 친구의 이례적인 급여인상 문제와 미 국무부에 여자친구가 채용되도록 영향력을 행사한 혐의로 30일, 세은 윤리위원회에 출두해 심문을 받습니다.
울포비츠 총재는 세계은행의 내부조사 결과 세은의 윤리규정 등을 위반한 것으로 지적된 가운데 사임압력을 받고 있으나 자신의 행동에 대해 사과는 했으나 이 때문에 사임하지는 않을 것이라고 주장하고 있습니다.
The embattled president of the World Bank will appear before the institution's governing board Monday to defend himself against allegations of ethical violations.
American Paul Wolfowitz has been under fire over revelations that he used his influence to secure a lucrative job at the U.S. State Department for his girlfriend, Shaha Riza. The allegations have led many staff members, as well as a group of former top bank executives, to call for his resignation.
"The Washington Post" is reporting today (Saturday) that an internal committee investigating the matter has nearly completed its report. A preliminary version says Wolfowitz has violated bank regulations involving breach of contract, ethics rules and undermining the bank's reputation.
Wolfowitz accused the board earlier this week of treating him "shabbily and unfairly" in its probe.
