Eva Kaili is suspended from the center-left group of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament

Eva Kayley, Vice-President of the European Parliament, was arrested for investigation into allegations of receiving bribes from a Gulf country.

The Belgian investigative authorities believe that the country, which has not been named explicitly, has tried to influence the decision of the European Parliament, whether with money or gifts.

Four others were also arrested in the European Parliament, according to Agence France-Presse.

Local media suggested that the country in question was Qatar – but a Qatari government spokesman said he had not heard of any investigation, denying any wrongdoing.
