The European Commission handed out some €4.49 billion in 2013 to some 8,275 NGOs, according to German centre-right MEP Ingeborg Grassle, a member of the budgetary control committee. "NGOs cannot demand transparency from others and withhold information about their own accounts," said Grassle in a statement Thursday.
