According to the statement made by the prosecutor’s office carrying out the investigation, Giorgi, the partner of the Greek MP of the EP Eva Kaili, who is still in detention, was brought before a judge today.
The prosecutor’s office decided to release Giorgi with an electronic handcuff.
As part of the investigation carried out by the Belgian authorities, searches were made at many points in December 2022, 1.5 million euros in cash were seized and 4 people were detained.
It was announced that the detainees were Greek MP Eva Kaili, whose EP Vice President was terminated, former Italian EP Deputy Pier Antonio Panzeri, Kaili’s boyfriend Francesco Giorgi, who worked as an assistant in the EP, and Niccolo Figa-Talamanca, the director of the non-governmental organization working on the rule of law. . Figa-Talamanca was later released.
It was alleged that Giorgi said in his statement that two MEPs Andrea Cozzolino and Marc Tarabella received money from Panzeri. EP President Roberta Metsola initiated the process to lift the immunity of Cozzolino and Tarabella. Cozzolino and Tarabella, whose immunity was lifted on February 2, were detained a week later.
It was alleged that these people took bribes from a Gulf country to influence the economic and political decisions of the EP. Qatar, which was mentioned in the news on the subject, denied the allegations.
In later news, it was claimed that Morocco also bribed these people, and it was claimed that Moroccan intelligence and Morocco’s Ambassador to Warsaw, Abderrahim Atmoun, met with the suspects.
