New Minister Reorganizes Enterprise Estonia ({{commentsTotal}})


Two weeks after the head of Enterprise Estonia was sacked, new minister Anne Sulling has decided to recall and replace all eleven supervisory board members.

She said today that Enterprise Estonia, the state tourism and entrepreneurship support agency, needs a fresh start after a string of scandals including the sacking of Andres Rannamäe.

Rannamäe was picked to head the organization in early March, but had his contract terminated two weeks later for what the head of the supervisory board, Cinzia Siig, said was tarnishing the organization's image.

Rannamäe had been accused of defrauding EAS of 570,000 euros in 2010 but the prosecutor general's office decided not to launch a criminal case due to insufficient evidence.

Sulling said she will name the new board at the end of the month, but will cut the size from eleven members to seven.
