The European Parliament's legal affairs committee has been asked to lift the parliamentary immunity of Elmar Brok, a German centre-right MEP.I shall watch this space with great interest.
A spokeswoman for the committee said the MEP had been asked to attend a behind-closed-doors hearing next Monday (28 February) to discuss the request. There is no information on why a request to lift Brok's immunity has been filed or who filed it.
