Italian court rules Panzeri’s daughter can be extradited – POLITICO


ROME — An Italian court ruled on Monday that the daughter of former MEP Pier Antonio Panzeri can be extradited to Belgium on charges in the alleged corruption probe in Qatar that has engulfed the European Parliament.

Silvia Panzeri was arrested in Bergamo, northern Italy, in December, along with her mother, Maria Dolores Colleoni, on charges of corruption, money laundering and criminal association. His father’s NGO, Fight Impunity, is among the groups at the center of the so-called Qatargate allegations, and he was arrested in Belgium.

Belgian authorities believe Silvia Panzeri knew of her father’s alleged activities, according to a warrant seen by POLITICO. She denies the charge, according to her lawyer.

The Brussels public prosecutor’s office had requested the extradition of Panzeri and his mother. Her lawyers Angelo De Riso and Nicola Colli argued that sending her to Belgium where she would be held in prison rather than under house arrest would violate her human rights and raised questions about conditions in Belgian prisons.

But after three hours of proceedings, the judges in Brescia, near Milan, rejected these arguments and approved the Belgian extradition request. Panzeri will not be sent to Belgium immediately, but has five days to appeal. His mother’s extradition appeal will be heard on January 31.
