Representing the DP in the European Parliament, the MEP was sanctioned Monday for psychological harassment on his parliamentary assistants. The latter ensures that she accepts the decision and makes amends.

(ASdN) – Action, reaction. Monica Semedo (DP) has been sanctioned for moral harassment against her former parliamentary assistants, David Sassoli, President of the European Parliament, announced on Monday at the opening of the plenary session.

Elected in the 2019 European elections, the MEP will therefore be banned from all activity for 15 days. She will not receive any compensation during this period.

In a statement released on Monday, she said she accepted the decision and will not appeal the decision. She also apologized to her former employees for her behavior. “Since the start of my mandate and even before, I have been very demanding of myself and my team, which unfortunately created insurmountable tensions, which I regret,” she wrote.

The MEP nevertheless specifies that she reorganized her team in March 2020 and has since maintained “an excellent professional relationship” with all her assistants.
