Farage demands an investigation into the European Commission in light of the “sordid” Qatar bribery scandal.

A £1.3 million bribery scandal involving MEPs and Qatar was exposed when Belgian spies looked into Chinese and Russian activity in the European Union.

Following the shocking revelation, former MEP Nigel Farage has urged that an investigation be opened into other aspects of the European Union, particularly the European Commission.

As Brussels was shaken by allegations of a bribery network including Qatar, Morocco, and a number of top EU officials, detectives looking into allegations of corruption in the European Parliament confiscated bags filled with €50 notes.

Farage described the atmosphere in the European Parliament in an article for The Telegraph, saying that MEPs are treated “like VIPs” and constantly exposed to lobbyists of all stripes with “big expense accounts.”

Numerous prominent people had large quantities of cash hidden away in their residences, including an Italian senator who had €600,000 in notes stashed away at his apartment.

There are rumours that as many as 60 MEPs might be involved in this scandal, which is looking into allegations that Qatar tried to buy influence in order to get access to EU markets and airspace.

So far, four persons have been accused of corruption, including Greek MEP Eva Kaili, who was forced to resign from her position as vice president of the Parliament.

The club in Brussels “looks after its own.”

This idea was confirmed to be accurate when Kaili’s boyfriend and aide in the EU parliament, Francesco Giorgi, acknowledged his participation in a scandal involving Qatari bribes.

Giorgi made an effort to clear his partner of any wrongdoing, according to a person with firsthand knowledge of the situation.

According to the source, Giorgi’s confession was “a significant contribution” to the inquiry.

Any allegations of wrongdoing have been explicitly refuted by the Qatari government, according to a spokeswoman, who also claimed that “any association of the Qatari government with the reported claims is baseless and gravely misinformed”.

Farage is eager to see all the corruption from the European Parliament, where he served for more than 20 years, revealed since these claims have shaken the bloc.

“My disdain for this dishonest system has no boundaries,” he said.
