Pedro Agramunt expelled from EPP faction

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) Pedro Agramunt has been expelled from the European people’s Party (EPP) faction.

The Assembly has cleared the path for a possible impeachment of its President, who has courted controversy in the past by visiting Syria and meeting Bashar al-Assad.

Members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) voted in favor of a resolution that could allow officials to be removed from their posts, including the venerable institution’s president.

Pedro Agramunt, a Spanish senator, has been the target of substantial criticism following his decision to travel to Syria, along with two other PACE members, and meet President Bashar al-Assad.
