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. "

AFET Chair

Καλωσορίσατε στην ιστοσελίδα της Επιτροπής Εξωτερικών Υποθέσεων του Ευρωπαϊκού Κοινοβουλίου, ενός βασικού φορέα χάραξης και εφαρμογής της εξωτερικής πολιτικής της ΕΕ. Εμείς αποφασίζουμε για τον τρόπο χρησιμοποίησης των ευρωπαϊκών κονδυλίων, προκειμένου να προωθηθούν στο εξωτερικό τα συμφέροντα και οι αξίες της ΕΕ, και, μέσω της εποπτείας που ασκούμε στη διαδικασία διεύρυνσης, καθορίζουμε τη μελλοντική διαμόρφωση της Ένωσης. Ζητείται η στήριξή μας για κάθε διεθνή συμφωνία που προσδιορίζει τον ρόλο της ΕΕ στον ευρύτερο κόσμο, ιδίως δε για τις συμφωνίες σύνδεσης και τις συμφωνίες-πλαίσια τις οποίες συνάπτει η Ένωση με το ευρύ φάσμα των παγκόσμιων εταίρων μας. Επιπλέον, η επιτροπή παρακολουθεί στενά τις επιδόσεις των άλλων θεσμικών οργάνων της ΕΕ, και ειδικότερα της Ευρωπαϊκής Επιτροπής και της Ευρωπαϊκής Υπηρεσίας Εξωτερικής Δράσης, προκειμένου να διασφαλίσει ότι τα συμφέροντα των λαών της Ευρώπης βρίσκονται πάντοτε στην πρώτη γραμμή της εξωτερικής μας πολιτικής. Συμμετέχουμε επίσης ενεργά στην εγκαθίδρυση και βελτίωση των σχέσεων με τους βασικούς μας συμμάχους διαμέσου της κοινοβουλευτικής δημοκρατίας.Μέσω των μακροχρόνιων αυτών σχέσεων, συμβάλλουμε στην ανάπτυξη παγκόσμιων προτύπων και κανόνων και διασφαλίζουμε ότι η νομοθεσία της ΕΕ διαμορφώνεται κατά τρόπο που της επιτρέπει την καλή ενσωμάτωσή της στην παγκόσμια τάξη.
