At the same time, next Thursday Pier Antonio Giorgi is expected to speak before the pre-trial council in Brussels in order to decide whether he will remain in custody or be released with restrictive conditions
At the same time, the international media also refer to Mauritania’s involvement in Qatargate, arguing that Giorgi in his testimony mentioned that he visited the Mauritanian embassy with Pancheri to provide information on what is being said in the European Parliament about the country.
According to Il sole24 ore which publishes an excerpt from Georgi’s testimony, Eva’s partner Kailis says:
“I rented my apartment to the ambassador and this was the deal: 1,500 euros plus 300 euros for expenses. Pancheri took 25,000 euros in cash. Even in Mauritania they have a problem with their image. That’s why they asked for Pancheri’s help to advise them on what to do.”
