Belgian justice to decide on Kaili’s release on Mar 3

Belgian judicial authorities will announce later this week whether Greek MEP and former European Parliament vice president Eva Kaili should be released from pre-trial detention with an electronic bracelet, her lawyer has said on Tuesday.

Speaking after an appeal hearing in Brussels, Michalis Dimitrakopoulos said he expected the decision to be announced on March 3.

On February 16, the pre-trial council decided to extend Kaili’s pre-trial detention by two months but her legal team appealed the decision.

If the appeal is again rejected, she will have to spend another two months in jail until a new release request can be made.

Meanwhile, the Brussels prosecutor’s office confirmed that Francesco Giorgi, Kaili’s partner and co-accused in the so-called Qatargate corruption case, was released from Saint-Gilles prison on Monday with an electronic bracelet.
