MEP warns Eva Kaili’s arrest could “slow down” some work to which she was contributing
The arrest of one of the European Parliament’s 14 vice-presidents, which has rocked EU politics over the past week, could delay progress on some Parliament research committee work, an MEP has warned.
The Belgian Federal Prosecutors Office has arrested four people as part of an investigation into possible “criminal organisation, corruption and money laundering” reportedly linked to Qatar. The four include Parliament vice-president Eva Kaili (pictured), a Greek MEP with responsibility for the institution’s Science and Technology Options Assessment (Stoa) panel who is also a member of the Parliament research committee. The specific allegations against Kaili have not been made public.
