Greek MP Eva Kaili, who was arrested in a corruption scandal on Friday, has been suspended from her position as vice-president of the European Parliament. This was announced by the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, on Saturday.
A spokesperson for the Speaker said Metsola had suspended “all the powers, duties and duties” of Kylie as Deputy Speaker.
The social democrat, Kylie, was arrested over an investigation into Qatar’s attempts to gain influence in parliament. Greek and Belgian media reported that at least €600,000 in cash was found in plastic bags at Kayla’s home. Her party expelled her immediately.
Earlier on Saturday, it was announced that Nicolas Beer, the vice-president of the European Parliament, was shocked by the corruption scandal. German liberal Beer said he was “confused”. She fears that the scandal will have a very negative impact on the European Parliament, which has fourteen vice-presidents.
The Belgian judiciary said on Saturday that people holding important political and/or strategic positions in the European Parliament had received large sums of money and “big gifts” from a “Gulf country”. According to the judiciary, the intention was to “attempt to influence the economic and political decisions of Parliament”.
