Suspicions of corruption in the European Parliament Eva Kaili remains

In this scandal which caused shock waves in the European Parliament, Eva Kaili is one of a quartet of suspects imprisoned after an indictment for “belonging to a criminal organization”, “money laundering” and “corruption“. On December 14, it had already been decided to keep Francesco Giorgi, companion of the Socialist MEP, and former MEP Pier Antonio Panzeri in prison, who also appear as key figures in the file.

A fourth defendant, Niccolo Figa-Talamanca, leader of an NGO, had been granted placement under an electronic bracelet that day, but the measure was suspended because the federal prosecutor’s office appealed. A hearing has been set for December 27, according to his lawyer.
