European Parliament launches ‘internal’ probe amid corruption accusations, says president

To be updated

Four officials, including European Parliament Vice-President Eva Kaili, were arrested and questioned late last week as part of an investigation into suspicions of palm fat in the body linked to the decision to organizing the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The growing scandal has prompted some observers to demand sweeping reform of the legislature.

European Parliament President Roberta Metsola announced on Monday that she would conduct an “internal investigation” into alleged corruption, money laundering, bribery and fraud within her legislature.

“There will be no sweeping under the rug”, Metsola said at the opening of Parliament’s plenary session in Strasbourg. “There will be no business as usual.” She promised. An “internal investigation” will be carried out to “examine all the facts related to the European Parliament” and ensure that the institution reforms itself, according to the politician.

The Maltese-born politician assured the body was ‘in tune’ with the authorities as part of the Belgian authorities’ investigation into suspicions of corruption, and accused ‘malicious actors’ from ‘autocratic third countries’ ” for having caused a situation where the parliament and “the European Union democracy”, are “attacked”.

Prosecutors charged four European Union officials with bribery, involvement in a criminal group and money laundering over the weekend, with European Parliament vice-president Eva Kaili suspended from office and Metsola taking action on Monday to fire her.
