EULEX Kosovo: Elmar Brok and Ulrike Lunacek welcome release of report

15-04-2015 - 09:25

Following the publication by Federica Mogherini of the report by Professor Jean-Paul Jacqué on the EULEX Kosovo mandate implementation in case of recent allegations, Elmar Brok (EPP, DE), Chair of the EP Foreign Affairs Committee, and Ulrike Lunacek (Greens/EFA, AT), EP rapporteur on Kosovo, welcomed the release of the report and the relevant recommendations put forward therein, but asked for further clarifications, too.

"We welcome the fact that Vice-President/High Representative Federica Mogherini promptly shared the report by Jean-Paul Jacqué on the EULEX Kosovo mandate implementation in case of critical allegations.

The rapport raises some important and sensitive issues and puts forward relevant recommendations. However some open questions do remain. Mr Jacqué concludes that Ms Bamieh is not responsible for leaking the information to the press as originally accused. However it is not made clear whether those responsible have been found and held accountable.

The report points out clearly that the lack of investigations regarding the allegations raised in 2012 and lack of information thereof to Brussels headquarters is problematic, but does not clarify the causes why this happened. Had this been carried out promptly and according to standard procedures, many issues that arose after could have been avoided. The disappearance of the related report is also an issue of concern, for which the circumstances still have to be clarified.

We welcome the recommendations that Mr Jacque put forward, as many of those have been repeatedly raised by the European Parliament in its annual resolutions on Kosovo, such as the need to ensure sufficiently long terms of office for international judges and prosecutors to ensure uninterrupted management of cases.

We also stress that the recommendations point to the need to address urgently the underlying issues that put in question the effectiveness and credibility of EULEX and of the EU, as well as the reliability of the Kosovo judiciary.

We will decide on the possible follow up by the European Parliament in the near future. We are looking forward to further clarifications on the issues that remain still open, as well as to the necessary follow-up to ensure that the EU is an effective actor in the region. "

Grußwort

AFET Chair

Herzlich willkommen auf der Website des Ausschusses für auswärtige Angelegenheiten des Europäischen Parlaments, der ein Schlüsselakteur bei der Gestaltung und Durchführung der Außenpolitik der EU ist. Wir beschließen darüber, wie die europäischen Finanzmittel eingesetzt werden, um die Interessen und Werte der EU in Drittstaaten zu fördern, und bestimmen durch unsere Überwachung des Erweiterungsprozesses die künftige Gestalt der Europäischen Union. Alle internationalen Abkommen, mit denen die Rolle der EU in der Welt bestimmt wird, bedürfen unserer Unterstützung; dies gilt insbesondere für Assoziierungs- und Rahmenabkommen, die die EU mit einer Vielfalt von Partnern weltweit abschließt. Darüber hinaus hat der Ausschuss die Arbeit der übrigen Institutionen der EU genau im Blick, insbesondere die Tätigkeit der Europäischen Kommission und des Europäischen Auswärtigen Dienstes, um zu gewährleisten, dass die Interessen der Menschen Europas stets im Vordergrund unserer gemeinsamen Außenpolitik stehen. Wir sind außerdem aktiv am Aufbau und an der Verbesserung der Beziehungen zu wichtigen Verbündeten im Wege der parlamentarischen Diplomatie beteiligt. Über diese langjährigen Beziehungen tragen wir zur Entwicklung weltweiter Normen und Regeln bei und stellen sicher, dass die Rechtsvorschriften der EU in einer Weise erarbeitet werden, dass sie sich mühelos in die globale Ordnung einfügen können.
