brussels - The mayor of Brussels is told more and more that he has to resign. Yvan Mayeur was in the board of an organization that receives homeless people and received 1400 euros gross per month for attending meetings and board work.
Among other things, many politicians from his own Socialist Party (PS) believe that he must honor himself. The party threatens to leave the city council if he does not get up quickly. The Brussels parliament has now set up a committee of inquiry.
Mayeur also finds 'a lot of money', but the amounts are due to defend the 'work done', he said in Belgian media on Thursday. He is willing to repay the money. The mayor has already made his party functions available, 'not to embarrass the party. '
The full board of the shelter organization, called Samusocial, got up on Wednesday.
