A committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes and contributions from speakers.

PANA Committee - Public hearing with intermediaries (Part III) - "The role of lawyers, accountants and bankers in Panama Papers"

Following the hearings with intermediaries on 24 January and 9 February, the PANA Committee will finalise its series of hearings about "the roles and responsibilities of intermediaries in the setting-up of offshore constructions" with a hearing on 6 March in which the focus will be on the roles of bankers, lawyers and accountants in the Panama Papers revelations in France and Switzerland.

After introductions by journalists who participated in the International Consortium for Investigative Journalism (ICIJ), bankers, accountants, lawyers, as well as representatives of law enforcement bodies will share their views on what should be improved and what, in their views, needs to be done to avoid the setting-up of offshore schemes for tax evasion of money laundering purposes in the future.
