Graft-accused MEP Eva Kaili Released From Jail

Greek MEP Eva Kaili, who has been charged with corruption as part of the so-called Qatargate inquiry, was released from prison and placed under house arrest on Friday. Kaili left Brussels’ Haren prison in her lawyer’s car and was driven straight to her apartment near the European Parliament.

She has been ordered to remain at home pending trial, while wearing an electronic tracker. “My daughter is waiting for me, so I’m very happy that I will be with her in a bit,” a beaming Kaili told journalists as she arrived, referring to her two-year-old child. Speaking Greek and then in English, she added: “The fight continues, with determination, from my lawyers. We will talk soon. Source
