Brussels Gags and Threatens to Fine MEPS

Guido can reveal that MEPs wishing to read the recently published agricultural chapter of the TTIP agreement are being forced to sign non-disclosure agreements and have been threatened with massive fines if they publicly disclose what they have read. According to one MEP, he was farcically stripped of all electronic devices and led into a “windowless cell” before he was allowed to read the document:

“I had to sign a document stating that I would not disclose what I would read and I had to hand over any electronic gadgets, cameras, etc. I was allowed a pen but no paper, and then led into a windowless cell where I was issued with special blank paper which cannot be photocopied. If I publicly disclose what I have read, I will be subject to a minimum fine of £2233.”

That famous Brussels transparency and accountability in action…
