Greek MEP Eva Kaili released from prison amid corruption, money laundering charges


Eva Kaili, one of the main suspects in the European Parliament corruption scandal, is being moved from prison to house arrest pending trial, AMNA has reported.

She will be wearing an electronic tracking bracelet.  

The former Vice President of the European Parliament, who was among the first to be arrested, has been in prison since December when she was indicted on charges including corruption and money laundering in the QatarGate case.

The alleged “mastermind” of QatarGate, Antonio Panzeri, and Eva’s partner, Francesco Giorgi, have already been released from prison with an electronic bracelet.

Eva’s Greek lawyer, Michalis Dimitrakopoulos, stated that she “is leaving prison with her head held high and with dignity. She did not confess to crimes she did not commit, and she will fight for her innocence until the end.”
