EU Commissioner Resigns for Breaking COVID-19 Measures

BRUSSELS – European Union (EU) Trade Commissioner Phil Hogan stepped down from his post on Wednesday after his participation in a social event violated Irish rules for tackling the novel coronavirus and caused a political scandal.
Hogan attended a golf company event with 80 other people a week ago in Ireland.
The dinner took place just 24 hours after the Irish government banned gatherings inside more than six people. Before that, the limit was 50.
Following media reports and public outcry, Ireland’s Agriculture, Food and Marine Minister Dara Calleary resigned on Friday.
Despite the fact that Irish Prime Minister Micheal Martin urged him to “think about his position” on Saturday and the increasing pressure from the Irish and Brussels media, Hogan waited until Wednesday to resign.
“It was becoming increasingly clear that the controversy over my recent visit to Ireland was becoming a distraction from my work as EU Commissioner and would undermine my work in the key months to come,” he wrote in a statement.
Hogan also offered “a sincere apology to the Irish people”, acknowledging the “pain and anger” of families suffering from COVID-19 “when they feel that officials are not meeting the standards expected of them”.
Hogan has served in public office for almost 40 years, moving from local politics to the Irish parliament. He was also minister of State at the Ministry of Finance and the Environment.
It was Hogan’s second term at the European Commission.
Between 2014 and 2019, he led the agricultural affairs of the block.
