Like the Samusocial, the non-profit organisation, Les Cuisines Bruxelloises (EN: The Brussels Kitchens) has also awarded significant remuneration to political representatives. The report came from the Flemish newspapers, De Morgen and Het Laatste Nieuws, on Thursday, stating that political representatives in its management body had received significant financial remuneration. The goal of Les Cuisines Bruxelloise is to provide meals for schoolchildren and nurseries, patients in hospitals, residents of homes and the administrative services of CPAS. The president of the board of directors of the non-profit organisation is Faouzia Hariche (SP), currently acting as mayor of Brussels while Philippe Close (SP) waits to make his oath.
According to these newspapers, Ms. Hariche received a total of twenty-one mandates, including seven that were remunerated, up until 2015.
The board of directors of Les Cuisines Bruxelloise has numerous political representatives, who each receive 77 euros in attendance fees per meeting. But as in the case of Samusocial, a number of directors also form part of the bureau of the non-profit organisation, where the remunerations are much higher.
The Flemish dailies report an amount of 19,500 euros gross per year, a sum greater than what Yvan Mayeur and Pascale Peraïta have received at Samusocial, they point out.
