At least 50 members of the European Parliament stole computers, tablets and other items from their offices in the European Parliament while they were away from Brussels because of the pandemic COVID-19. On 2 July, reports Politico.
As writes the edition, the robbery occurred when the building was almost empty, the thieves had rifled through the papers and cabinets in the offices of members of the European Parliament to take valuables.
German MEP Nico Samrat, who stole two laptops, said that he was disappointed by the lack of response from the General Directorate of security of the European Parliament.
Samrat sent colleagues emails in which said that the only hope of defending himself, it was hopeless to print the messages on paper, reports CNN.
To the letters he attached the files to print in which it was said: “I politely ask you not to Rob me”, “Please don’t steal this”, “Please use gloves”, “Take something, but this is a gift from my mom” and so on. MEPs began to publish in social networks your photo with pictures Sambrotto.
