The three other people imprisoned since Sunday in this case appeared this Wednesday before the Brussels council chamber which must decide whether they remain in detention or not, according to the same source. “The case was severed” for Ms. Kaili, who could not be present in court on Wednesday due to a strike in prison, explained her lawyer. It was agreed at the request of the defense to postpone his hearing to December 22, he added.
The attorney declined to comment further. Another lawyer for the MEP, Michalis Dimitrakopoulos, told AFP in Athens on Tuesday that his client “did not know the existence of money” found at his home in Brussels.
