Qatar warns Belgium about the European Union Parliament’s investigation into corruption
He also criticizes the ban on Qatar’s deputies entering parliament, which has been in effect since the police arrested a vice-president, among others. According to the diplomat, OM used “inaccurate” information.
And in the past 10 days, the police have arrested four people who allegedly took bribes from two countries, according to Belgian media Qatar and Morocco, to influence parliament. During a house search, Greek Vice President Eva Kaili and her father are caught in the act with hundreds of thousands of euros in cash. A total of €1.5 million in cash was seized during twenty home searches.
The statement said that the decision to impose such a discriminatory restriction that restricts dialogue and cooperation with Qatar before the legal process is completed will have a negative impact on regional and global security cooperation, as well as the ongoing discussions about energy poverty and global security.
“We strongly reject allegations that our government is linked to misconduct. Qatar was not the only party named in the investigation, only our country was criticized and attacked. We have noted with great concern the selective governance of our country this week.”
According to the statement, it is “extremely disappointing” that the Belgian government has made no effort to enter into talks with the Qatari government. “Our countries worked together during the Covid-19 pandemic and Qatar is an important supplier of LNG to Belgium.”
A bribery scandal is growing within the European Union, and Morocco has also bought politicians
Not only was Qatar, Morocco also wanted to buy influence in the European Parliament. This is what the first suspect in the bribery scandal has confessed.
