Anti-smuggling expert Luk Joossens recently told EUobserver the draft bill had some flaws, but he opposed vetoing it.

The information prompted lobbying transparency campaign group ALTER-EU to file a complaint urging the commission's ethics committee to re-assess its acceptance of Barroso's role at Goldman Sachs.
