Panzeri interrogation shakes Qatargate, Kaili denies accusations


'Belgian justice pardoned him, but punishes and tortures others'. Eyes on Cozzolino and Tarabella (ANSA)

After the repentant agreement with the Belgian justice, former MEP Antonio Panzeri, at the center of the Qatargate scandal, "spoke and I am sure he falsely accused Mrs. Kaili".

This was stated by Michalis Dimitrakopuolos, the lawyer of the former vice president of the European Parliament, Eva Kaili, who has been in prison since last December 9, speaking to ANSA.

"It is a Belgian legal paradox that criminals who confess and repent are pardoned and those who fight for their innocence are in prison, undermining the presumption of innocence", says the lawyer, also confirming the "torture" suffered by Greek politics in the cell.

"The risk of arrest" for the two MEPs Andrea Cozzolino and Marc Tarabella, deprived of political immunity for their alleged involvement in Qatargate, "is significant".

This was stated by Laurent Kennes, the lawyer of former MEP Antonio Panzeri, in prison since 9 December and now a collaborator of justice, questioned by ANSA on the latest developments in the case.

"I assume they will be summoned soon. And the risk of arrest is significant, but this is completely independent of my client's defense and does not change his situation," he highlighted.
