How to buy citizenship in the EU

Being in front of the camera is not a new thing for me, but reporting for CNN’s Beme digital programming platform put me in a new position. Have a look and judge for yourself.

Here is the overview; Malta is one of the few European Union countries where citizenship can be purchased relatively quickly – if you have the money. Klaus traveled to Malta to look into the two very different paths to EU citizenship there – one for wealthy investors and one for refugees. This June, the European Council will meet to focus on migration issues including asylum processes. Recently, the challenge of the rescue ship MV Aquarius to dock in Malta and in Italy highlighted the struggle of migrants coming to Europe by sea.
