Irish MEP calls for justice following money-laundering scandal

An Irish MEP says “justice must be served” after a parliament colleague was charged with money-laundering.

Greek representative Eva Kaili is among four people who’ve been arrested, after large sums of cash were discovered in three properties in Belgium.

€600,000 was found in an MEP’s home, while €150,000 was found in a member’s apartment.

Investigators suspect large sums of money have been offered to individuals as a bribe to influence the parliament’s decisions.

Midlands North West representative Maria Walsh says there’s anger among many members.
