Eva Kaili to remain in custody for another 2 months, Βelgian judges rule

The judges council in Brussels rejected Eva Kaili’s request to be released from custody on bail, thus extending her detention for another two months, Belgian media reported.

This was the third time the former European Parliament vice president appeared before the council since her arrest, and she has a right to appeal the decision.

After Kaili’s hearing, her new defense lawyer Sven Mary said he requested that the judges release her on parole, or at least put her under house arrest with an electronic bracelet, in order to be with her 24-month-old daughter.

Kaili, one of the European Parliament vice-presidents, was arrested on December 9, 2022 in Brussels over the European Parliament case of corruption known as Qatargate. Italian former MEP Antonio Panzeri, who was arrested the same day, will also remain in detention, the council decided.
