Eva Kaili is the name on everyone's lips in Brussels.
The Greek MEP was considered, until her arrest on 9 December, a rising star among the ranks of the socialist group (S&D). Known as media-friendly and approachable, Kaili was first elected to the European Parliament in 2014, running with the centre-left PASOK party, and was re-elected in 2019.
In January 2022, the 44-year-old was named one of the parliament's 14 vice presidents, a culmination of her legislative work in digital topics such as artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and blockchain.
Since her shocking detainment, Kaili has been expelled from PASOK, suspended from the S&D group and removed as vice-president...
Francesco Giorgi is Eva Kaili's domestic partner and one of the suspected key players in the scandal...
A three-term socialist MEP, Pier Antonio Panzeri is suspected of being the prime intermediary between the European Parliament and the cash allegedly offered by Qatar and Morocco...
Niccolo Figa-Talamanca is the secretary-general of No Peace Without Justice, a non-profit organisation dedicated to human rights, democracy and the rule of law, with attention to the Middle East and North Africa...
Marc Tarabella is a Belgian MEP who sat with the socialist group since his election in 2004 until the eruption of the corruption scandal in December, when his membership was suspended...
Andrea Cozzolino is an Italian MEP, first elected in 2019... In his leaked confession, Francesco Giorgi directly accused Cozzolino, his former boss, and Tarabella of accepting money from Qatar and Morocco through Panzeri.

Eva’s a babe, although she looks rather mean in the picture, so I’d have to vote NOT GUILTY.
Predicate nominative, I was just going to say that, although at first I read it as ‘predicted nomination’, which is what the DNC did in 2020.
She looks just as evil as the other two, but I grok that. :^)
Who’s zooming whom?
Whom do you love?
Forty seven miles of barbed wire, got a rattlesnake for a necktie...
Imagine the bribe money going thru the politicians hands in every country. Here in the USA it is in the open.
Not exactly in the open, just that the partisan media is also corrupt and culpable.
