After defining himself as an injured party in the scandal of the Brussels investigations and following the news reported by the press on the development of the investigations relating to the corruption network which acted to condition the decisions of the European Parliament, the secretary Enrico Letta has asked the National Guarantee Commission of the Democratic Party to meet as a matter of urgency.
In a note from the democratic party he explains that the decision was taken “in order to take the most appropriate decisions, to guarantee the honourability of the community of democrats and women and to protect the exponents themselves called into question, so that they are more free to expose his reasons and provide the clarifications that will be requested by the investigating authorities”. “The Democratic Party confirms that it is the injured party in this matter and will act accordingly in all judicial offices”, it continues.
The note comes close to the indiscretions of the newspapers on the confession of Francesco Giorgi, partner of the former vice president of the European Parliament Eva Kaili. In addition to Giorgi, among the Italians involved in the investigation there would be lformer MEP Antonio Panzeros and the MEP of the Pd, Andrea Cozzolino. But according to the Greek media, more than 60 MEPs could end up in the investigation by the Belgian justice.
