ITNT.news, E.J. BRON – At this very moment, one of the biggest corruption scandals in the history of the European Union is unfolding. Because the story is so unpleasant, a large part of the European media, the press, calling itself independent, as usual sees nothing, hears nothing, says nothing.
Stella Kyriakides, the European Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, who signed the EU’s bungled vaccine contracts, appears to be embroiled in a massive corruption scandal. Many observers are already certain that she was bribed by vaccine manufacturers.
On the joint bank account of the European Commissioner and her husband €4 million ‘unexpectedly’ turned up. The Cypriot press already speaks of – literally quoting – passive bribery.
The money was transferred to the account of the family of the European Commissioner through the state bank Cyprus Cooperative Bank; to avoid a scandal, they tried to camouflage the transfer as a loan.
That is far-fetched, because the European Commissioner for Health cannot provide guarantees or collateral for such sized ‘credit’. As a report from the Greek Court of Auditors has already found, Stella Kyriakides will not be able to repay the huge sum, neither with her salary nor with other sources, and that seems to be fairly clear:
Is it a fake credit, so, a facade to hide the corruption?
Stella Kyriakides, after being exposed, now tries to apologize in every conceivable way. She tries to make it look like the money has nothing to do with the EU’s vaccine contracts. She tries to deduce that it could be a bribe that was paid by the vaccine manufacturers for contracts on favorable terms to allow for delayed or limited deliveries. Meanwhile, the more cautious Cypriot newspapers still write of passive bribery.
It is not the first time that the European Commissioner for Health and her family have been involved in a corruption scandal. It was they who years ago privatized the oncology treatments on the island of Cyprus and then, as usual, inflated the prices for the treatments.
The family’s name, which stands for a fortune made on the backs of cancer patients, became a household name across the country. When the situation became unbearable, the matter went to the Cypriot Parliament. All but one parliamentarians voted to nationalize cancer treatments and lower prices for the treatments.
Stella Kyriakides is now Commissioner of Health of the European Union, the signatory of the now widely criticized vaccine contracts.
Now she has to explain how €4 million ended up in her bank account.
Right now it is quiet in Brussels. Could that be the calm before the severe storm?
