New EU rules on officials’ trips from summer, Qatar case

by Lawrence Riley

The new guidelines will be read at the beginning of the summer, said EU spokespersons Dana Spinant and Balazs Ujvari in responding to a series of questions on nine trips to Qatar by Director-General for Mobility and Transport Henrik Hololei, entirely paid for by Doha, taken between 2015 and 2021.

The trips made headlines as part of a case that has become known as Qatargate.

“We intend to restrict the possibilities” for EU officials to “accept trips paid for by other organisations: the direction that we are moving toward is that in the future it will be possible only if the third parties funding these trips are the UN, G7 or G20,” they noted, adding that the tighter rules would be accompanied by an “analysis” on possible conflicts of interest.
