US: The top Democrat and Republican on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee have urged President Joe Biden to “ensure full accountability” over a World Bank data-rigging controversy that has embroiled International Monetary Fund chief Kristalina Georgieva.
The panel’s chairman, Senator Robert Menendez, a Democrat, and Republican Senator James Risch, said in a letter released on Monday that Biden should direct the U.S. Treasury Department to “do their due diligence with all due haste and, as necessary, ensure full accountability.”
Georgieva, who has been the IMF’s managing director since April 2019, is pushing back against allegations in a World Bank outside investigation report that when she was the bank’s CEO in 2017, she applied “undue pressure” on staff to make data changes that boosted China’s rankings in the World Bank’s flagship “Doing Business” report on country investment climates.
On Friday, Georgieva called the allegations against her “false and spurious” and accused the office of the World Bank’s past president, Jim Yong Kim, of manipulating the data.
Eurozone: People in Britain should buy petrol as usual, environment minister George Eustice said on Monday, adding there was no shortage of fuel but problems were being caused by consumers panic buying fuel they didn’t need.
“The most important thing is that people just buy petrol as they normally would. There isn’t a shortage,” Eustice told broadcasters.
“There does come a time when things settle down, people get used to it and return to life as normal again. The quicker people do that the better… The only reason we don’t have petrol in forecourts is that people are buying petrol when they don’t need it.”
