It is recalled that after the decision of the pre-trial council, on February 16, to extend Eva Kaili’s pre-trial detention by two months, her lawyer Sven Marie filed an appeal, which according to the procedure is heard within 15 days. The advocate of Mr. Tarabella had done the same.

Eva Kaili’s defense will request her release from prison with an electronic bracelet. In case the decision of the Court of Appeal is negative, Ms. Kaili will remain in custody for two months.

Finally, the Brussels prosecutor’s office confirmed to APE-MPE that the partner of Eva Kaili and accused in the corruption case at the European Parliament, Francesco Giorgi, was released today from the prisons of Saint-Gilles with an electronic bracelet. F. Giorgi was arrested on December 9 and released, following the decision of the Pre-Trial Council on February 23.
