Steven Creyelman is no longer a candidate for Vlaams Belang in the national elections. He came under controversy at the end of last year after his name surfaced in the Chinese bribery scandal surrounding his brother Frank Creyelman.

“Your servant has decided to no longer stand as a candidate in these national elections.” Steven Creyelman, Member of Parliament for Vlaams Belang, writes this in a post on Facebook. He was fourth on the East Flemish list for the House, an eligible position. He is now giving it back to the party, because he says the “Chinese storm” and “the suspicions” surrounding his person will not subside.

At the end of last year, Steven Creyelman was discredited for possible involvement in the espionage activities of his brother Frank Creyelman (ex-Vlaams Belang). The latter worked for years as a spy for the Chinese intelligence service. The fact that Steven Creyelman asked three parliamentary questions in Parliament about refugees from Hong Kong raised questions. In the aftermath of those revelations, Creyelman also had to resign as chairman of the House Committee on Army Purchases.
