Nigel Farage has called for an investigation into the EU Commission as the corruption scandal continues to plague the governing body.

The scandal led to Belgian prosecutors charging Eva Kaili and three others for accepting bribes from World Cup host Qatar in a bid to influence EU policymaking.

"There are too many informal grouping that are potentially more amenable to influence," EU Parliament President Roberta Metsola said.

"We will clamp down on everything... I will make sure that everything is in place to make sure the parliament is not for sale.”

Kaili, who is in Belgian police detention, was one of 14 vice presidents in the parliament.

Belgian prosecutors charged her and three Italians at the weekend with taking part in a criminal organisation, money laundering and corruption.

They are believed to have pocketed money from Qatar, current host of the soccer World Cup. The energy-rich Gulf state has denied any wrongdoing.

Last week, GB News’ Nigel Farage reacted to the news saying “I feel this very personally, because for years, myself and my colleagues were put through hell by Olaf, the fraud office of the European Parliament.”

Now, Nigel has called for an investigation into “every other part of the EU”.

He said that he was not shocked or surprised to hear the news coming out of Brussels and that he “saw at first-hand the constant exposure to lobbyists of all types”.

He continued: “The only fact that has amazed me about this sleazy situation is the sheer efficiency and guile shown by the Belgian intelligence services in exposing it.”

“The fact is that the EU bigwigs have constructed a body of politicians and bureaucrats who make up what is, in effect, a separate class. And in creating this elite, the EU panjandrums took their cue from the aristocracy of the world’s bureaucrats: the French.”

Reflecting on his time as an MEP and the future of the “Brussels club” Nigel wrote in The Telegraph that it: “generally follows this culture and looks after its own. Woe betide any dissidents, though. In my case, any immunity I had in my capacity as an MEP was worthless.

“…My contempt for this dishonest system knows no bounds. I only hope that the Belgian law enforcement agencies will next conduct an audit of other parts of the system – especially the European Commission, the EU’s executive arm. After all, that is where the real power to make laws and decide policy lies.“
