Acting director of Transparency International EU, Nick Aiossa, stated, “These documents show us that this was a sustained, multiannual effort to nefariously influence parliamentary procedures… It happened over years with multiple people, and it wasn’t discovered.”

The response from the Parliament has been criticized for being inadequate in addressing the severity of the scandal.
