EP suspends Momentum MEP’s immunity

The European Parliament on Thursday suspended the immunity of Hungarian Momentum MEP Anna Donath in a plenary session.

MEPs approved the legal affairs committee’s proposal on the matter by a show of hands.

The lifting of Donath’s immunity was initiated by the district court of Kecskemet last June after criminal proceedings were launched against her and others for defamation.

In line with the EP’s rules, the request to have Donath’s immunity lifted was submitted to the legal affairs committee by the EP president.

Donath did not oppose the suspension of her immunity.
