Qatargate: Eva Kaili will leave house arrest

Former Greek MEP Eva Kaili is released from house arrest. A Belgian court ruled that she can be released under judicial supervision.

The former vice president of the European Parliament Eva Kaili, who is being investigated in the corruption scandal, will no longer be under surveillance by electronic bracelet and will be able to go free, but with surveillance, it was announced this Thursday.

The news is reported by Agence France-Presse, which quotes Eric Van Duyse, spokesman for the judicial body in charge of the qatargate.

Former Greek MEP Eva Kaili was released from prison in mid-April on the condition that stay under house arrest with an electronic bracelet that would allow him to monitor his location.

“Can’t stand.” Eva Kaili breaks the silence and accuses the Belgian justice of preventing her from seeing her daughter

With this decision, the former vice-president of the European Parliament is released, but under court supervision while investigations continue.

At the beginning of May, the Belgian MEP Marc Tarabella and the Italian parliamentary assistant Francesco Giorgi, who are also being investigated in the same process, were released but under supervision.

The case arose in December 2022, when Belgian investigators seized – during searches in Brussels, at the homes of Kaili and Italian MEP Pier Antonio Panzeri – around 1.5 million euros in suitcases and bags.

Judge Claise suspects the existence of cash payments in exchange for political decisions or favorable positions to the interests of Qatar and Morocco in the European Parliament, which Doha and Rabat deny.

Panzeri has admitted that those investigated orchestrated the fraud, and his former parliamentary adviser Francesco Giorgi is suspected of having played an important role in this process.

Former MEP Panzeri, a figure in the Italian trade union world and leader of NGOs since 2019, in Brussels, later implicated Marc Tarabella, who denies having committed any illegality or irregularityjust like Kaili.

A seventh suspect, Italian MEP Andrea Cozzolino, is the subject of a European arrest warrant issued by Judge Claise, but has already challenged his obligation to appear before Belgian courts.
