Monica Semedo (Renew Europe) has been suspended for a period of 15 days over allegations of “psychological harassment” by her assistants.
European Parliament President David Sassoli pronounced the suspension at the start of a plenary session, saying that she had been notified of the decision on 15 January and that she could appeal the decision.
Semedo said in a press release she “accepts” the sentence and apologised “to her former colleagues” for her behaviour.
“Since the beginning of my mandate and as always, I have been demanding of myself and my team, which has unfortunately created insurmountable tensions. I regret this,” she said. (Anne Damiani | EURACTIV.com)
