EU Lawmaker Seeks to Lift Travel Restrictions After Belgian Prosecutors Drop Charges

EU Lawmaker Eva Kaili Seeks to Lift Travel Restrictions After Belgian Prosecutors Drop Charges.
ATHENS — After Belgian prosecutors dropped charges against her, EU lawmaker Eva Kaili is seeking to lift travel restrictions that have been imposed on her.

Kaili's legal team has initiated legal proceedings to abolish the restrictive conditions, including the ban on exiting the country.

Kaili wants to attend the next plenary session of the European Parliament in Strasbourg mid-June.

Her lawyers said that the travel restrictions were imposed on her, but now that charges have been dropped, she should be able to move freely.

Kaili and her partner Francesco Giorgi were arrested last December as part of an ongoing investigation into whether foreign countries, including Qatar and Morocco, were bribing EU lawmakers.

Giorgi was released from jail and placed under house arrest, while Kaili's detention was prolonged several times and she was only moved to house arrest with an electronic monitor in mid-April, pending trial.

Kaili's lawyers also said that she will now be able to live under the same roof as her partner.

By order of the Investigating Judge, her partner Francesco Giorgi has been allowed to live in the common residence.

Kaili and Giorgi have been living in separate residences since returning home from prison.

Giorgi will now be able to move back to their apartment on Rue Wiertz in Brussels, just 100 meters from the European Parliament's main buildings, where Kaili lives with their two-year-old daughter.

The Greek MEP and her Italian partner, known as the "Brangelina" of the European Parliament, have been living separately since Kaili's detention.

Kaili's lawyers say that she will now be able to live under the same roof as her partner and that they are looking forward to being reunited with their daughter.
