July 10 (Bloomberg) -- Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean- Claude Juncker, the European Union’s longest-serving head of government, said he’ll submit his government’s resignation tomorrow after he was implicated in a probe into spying by his security service.
Juncker, 58, who led the group of euro-area finance ministers until January, is “politically responsible” for his failure to inform lawmakers of “irregularities and supposed illegalities” by the State Intelligence Service, according to a July 5 report by the country’s legislature.
He made the announcement today at the end of a debate in parliament in Luxembourg.
