#MALTA: EU Parliament Member Convicted Of Distribution Of Pornography

[world politics news]

Labour European Parliament candidate Cyrus Engerer was given a two-year jail sentence, suspended for two years, for distributing pornographic material.

Engerer, can still contest the upcoming 2024 EP election after the electoral law was amended earlier this year to allow persons serving a suspended sentence to contest and vote in elections. 

He had been elected as an MEP in a November, 2020 special election.

A judge found that Engerer had distributed compromising pictures of a former lover to the lover's work colleagues via email.
