MEP on payroll in favor of Emirate As a new line of inquiry opens up in the Maxi-Inquiry into Qatargate, Europe’s heart continues to tremble, fearing that what has emerged so far is only the tip of an iceberg of deeper-rooted pressure and corruption. According to Greek private broadcaster Mega TV, more than 60 MEPs have been targeted by a maximum investigation into Qatargate by the Belgian judiciary. Members of the European Parliament who may be affected by the investigations and searches, according to Hellenic TV, are mostly from the political families of the Socialists, Democrats, European People’s Party and other left-wing parties.
These rumors were relaunched by the German online magazine Focus.de, but they received no confirmation from the Belgian federal prosecutor. Meanwhile, the first declarations of the Belgian justice were returned in front of the Council Chamber of the Brussels court for the four arrested persons: the former MEP Antonio Panzeri and Francesco Giorgi, the accomplice of the former President of the European Parliament, Eva Kylie. Niccolo Figa-Talamanca will remain in jail for at least a month while he can go on electronic monitoring. However, the fate of Greek politics is still pending, and it asked for and won a postponement of the decision until next December 22.
Meanwhile, in Strasbourg, the Eurochamber meeting plenary called for the suspension of the EU-Qatar agreement on aviation and the suspension of all legislative files related to Doha, which caused outrage in the league as it was excluded from joint signing. The motion now needs to be put to a vote. The clamor for an investigation into the scandal by Brussels judge Michael Claes shows no signs of abating, with the picture becoming richer with new and alarming details as the days pass.
According to a reconstruction offered by two Belgian media, Le Soir and Nak, and confirmed by the Belgian Ministry of Justice, the operation began after an investigation by the Belgian intelligence service and the secret services of five other European countries. to the first ‘secret’ raid at Panseri’s house. Information that brings to mind the alarm highlighted last summer in a report to Copazir when the current minister, Adolfo Urso, was president. But the most impressive news – the police are busy identifying the Belgian bank that took the bribe (a total of 1.5 million euros in cash) found in the homes and bags of Antonio Panzeri and Eva Kylie. A Greek MEP’s father is set to flee – worrying speculation that will see many MEPs on the payroll in favor of the Gulf nation. A thesis that investigators are working on, if confirmed, would deepen the corruption and implicate EU politicians and officials. In danger of completely undermining the credibility of community institutions.
The long wave of corruption may not end in Qatar, but may even reach Morocco. Christophe Bertie, director of Le Soeur, observed that the Belgian police may also have “information about another country”. All the rumors that have surfaced on several occasions in recent days point to Rabat. So much so that Belgian Justice Minister Vincent van Quickenborn reported that he expected bribes and gifts to influence European political decisions by economic powers to be more than the amounts tracked so far. “Interests” for other foreign interventions may be “innumerable.” A suspect has yet to be named, and all four are expected to return before Belgian justice in a month.
