Greek MEP to remain in custody over Qatar corruption scandal

It’s the biggest corruption scandal to shake the Brussels establishment for years.

Earlier this month, Belgian police charged four people in an alleged bribery scheme involving the world cup host Qatar. Today a judge refused to release one of the accused, a Greek Member of the European Parliament, ruling that she should stay in custody for another month.  She says she’s innocent, as does the Qatari government.
