EP lifts immunity of MEP Eva Kaili over allowances management

The plenary of the European Parliament in Strasbourg approved the lifting of immunity for Greek MEP Eva Kaili on Tuesday following a request by the European Prosecutor over a case related to management of allowances to parliamentary assistants.

Voting took place by raised hands, per procedure.

The case had been initiated in December 2022 by the European Prosecutor, who was investigating possible fraud against the European Union’s budget over allowances for MEPs and their assistants.

Lifting Kaili’s immunity is not related to the so-called Qatargate, the corruption scandal at the European Parliament.
