so the EU vice President and a few more arrested over Qatari bribes shame it wasn't Van der Leyden :lol:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-63936360

Four people have been charged in an investigation into suspected bribery at the European Parliament by a Gulf state - reportedly Qatar.
Greek MEP and European Parliament Vice President Eva Kaili was among those previously arrested in the case.

Prosecutors suspect the Gulf state tried to influence parliament decisions with donations of money or gifts.
Local media have reported that the accused country is Qatar, which the Qatari government has denied.

Watchdogs and opposition MEPs have said it could be one of the biggest corruption scandals the European Parliament has ever seen.

there's more but we get the gist mind you we all knew this went on it's just nice to see some actually getting caught red handed with wads of cash in sock draws ! :lol:

an updated storyline

surely within EU you shouldn't need a court ruling ?

MEP fights extradition from Italy to Belgium

t's the corruption scandal stinking up the EU.

Suitcases filled with euros seized in Brussels flats. A number of MEPs locked up behind bars awaiting trial.

And now a battle over extradition between Belgian investigators and Italian judges.

Andrea Cozzolino, an MEP for Southern Italy since 2009, stands accused of taking bribes from foreign countries to influence the European Parliament - allegations he denies.

He is one of four current and former MEPs wrapped up in the Qatargate investigation, which centres around allegations that Qatar and Morocco paid a group based in Brussels to sway EU lawmakers.

Qatar has vehemently denied any wrongdoing, while Morocco has hit back at "judicial harassment" and "media attacks".

On 11 April judges will decide whether Mr Cozzolino, 60, will leave house arrest in the southern Italian city of Naples and be taken to a Belgian prison under a European Arrest Warrant.

But his lawyer has told the BBC the prosecutors are trying to "see if he cracks", and demands more details about the allegations against Mr Cozzolino - as well as reassurances his client's health won't suffer in a Belgian jail.
