Eva Kylie was arrested on Saturday and her assets in Greece are said to have been frozen.

Josep Borrell, the European Union’s foreign policy chief, said the arrests over alleged corruption in the European Parliament were “very, very concerning”.

Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said the charges against the four people were “extremely damaging”.

Among those arrested was the Vice-President of the European Parliament, Eva Kaili, who is Greek, and is believed to be one of the accused.

Prosecutors suspect that a Gulf state, reportedly Qatar, tried to influence parliament by donating money or gifts.
