Mote likely to face prosecution

The legal affairs committee of the European Parliament have voted in favour of a recommendation to lift former UKIP MEP Ashley Mote's immunity from prosecution.
Mote who faces nine charges of false accounting and one of making false represntations in relating to housing benefit now looks likely to face prosecution.
The accusations against mote surfaced last year, when he failed not only to declare the charges to the European Parliament, but also to his former UKIP colleagues, resulting in him being expelled from the party.
The MEP for the south east region, must now wait for the entire Parliament to vote on the recommendation of the legal affiars committee likely to take place in Strasbourg next month.
