Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Union Commission, has been sued for a Covid-19 vaccine developed against the epidemic.

A Belgian lobbyist has sued Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Union (EU) Commission, for “mismanaging” agreements she made with Pfizer to supply vaccines.

Frédéric Baldan, who is a lobbyist and accredited to EU institutions, has filed a lawsuit in Belgium to examine communications records of Pfizer CEO von der Leyen Albert Burle, according to local media reports.

The process, which will continue with accusations such as “abuse of office and title”, “destruction of official documents”, “obtaining illegal benefits”, “corruption”, could lead to the removal of immunity from von der Leyen.

The EU Commission has purchased a large number of vaccines from some drug and vaccine manufacturers to combat the COVID-19 epidemic. The Commission has awarded the largest contract for the supply of COVID-19 vaccines to Pfizer-BioNTech.

During the negotiation of this provision, there were also telephone messages on the agenda between EU commission president von der Leyen and Pfizer CEO Albert Burla, and calls were made to the EU administration asking them to explain the content of the messages, but the EU administration did not share these messages with the public.


European Commission officials say there is no rule requiring the storage of phone messages from the president and members of the commission, instead only documents should be kept.

The EU Ombudsman reported early last year that the EU Commission was showing “bad management” because von der Leyen did not disclose her messages to Bourle.
