of 17 March 2008

amending Decision 1999/70/EC concerning the external auditors of the national central banks, as regards the external auditor of Suomen Pankki

(2008/268/EC)

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Protocol on the Statute of the European System of Central Banks and of the European Central Bank annexed to the Treaty establishing the European Community, and in particular to Article 27(1) thereof,

Whereas:
