“We are alarmed by allegations of corruption in EU institutions. We take a zero-tolerance stance on corruption. We are the first to support a thorough investigation and full disclosure of the case. We will fully cooperate with all investigative authorities. In this spirit, we will not publicly comment on the ongoing legal proceedings”, stresses the Group of Socialists of the European Parliament. The announcement also adds that: “Given the seriousness of the allegations, until the relevant authorities provide relevant information and clarifications, we request the suspension of work on any dossiers and votes in the Plenary regarding the Gulf States, particularly regarding the release of visa status and planned visits”.
