On the 24th of July 2017, Transparency International EU sent a letter to the European Parliament drawing the President Tajani’s attention to a potential violation of internal ethical rules by three Members. All declare incomes from outside activities in excess of 10,000 euros per month. The Parliament’s ethics rules had been changed in January, giving members six months to update their declaration and provide more details on their outside activities and incomes. The three members have failed to meet the 16 July deadline to publish their incomes with “indication of the nearest 10,000 EUR amount”. Full letter available below.
