The European Parliament voted on Tuesday to strip Eva Kaili of her role as vice president of the assembly after she and others were charged for allegedly receiving cash and gifts from Qatar in return for influencing decisions.



The parliament voted by 625 votes to 1 against, with two abstentions, to end her term early. A two-thirds majority was required for her to cease being one of the 14 vice presidents.

Kaili has denied any wrongdoing, as has Qatar.
