It is reported that a member of the European Parliament who supports crypto was arrested in Belgium on corruption charges.
According to a new report by local Belgian publication Le Soir, Greek Social Democrat and EU Vice President Eva Kaili, known for being in favor of digital assets, has been arrested alongside three other officials for allegedly conspiring with the nation of Qatar, which hosts the current FIFA World Cup.
Specifically, European Union anti-corruption investigators had information that a nation in the Gulf was attempting to influence the EU’s politics and economy by offering gifts and money as bribes. Qatar has not been specifically named, but Le Soir reports that its sources point to it.
According to Politico, Kaili is accused of “interfering politically with members of the European Parliament for the benefit of Qatar and Morocco.” He also met with Qatar’s labor minister in early November, according to Politico.
Previously, in an interview with Real Vision Media, Kaili praised blockchain technology and non-fungible tokens, saying that she has tried to pass legislation that would study and analyze the potential NFTs.
So I asked to have a file on the NFTs and to analyze the dynamics and the potential that its market as I can think of several problems (NFTs) can solve you can remove intermediaries, you can claim intellectual property rights immediately online, you can use it for authentication, verification, and basically for trust, for transparency.”
