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. "

Mot de bienvenue

AFET Chair

Bienvenue sur le site de la commission des affaires étrangères du Parlement européen, acteur clé de la conception et de la mise en œuvre de la politique étrangère de l'Union européenne. Notre commission décide de la manière dont les fonds européens sont utilisés pour promouvoir les intérêts et les valeurs de l'Union au-delà de ses frontières et elle détermine, par sa surveillance du processus d'élargissement, la forme que prendra l'Union dans l'avenir. Notre commission doit aussi se prononcer sur tous les accords internationaux qui définissent le rôle de l'Union dans le monde, notamment sur les accords d'association et sur les accords-cadres que l'Union conclut avec de nombreux partenaires mondiaux. En outre, la commission surveille étroitement les travaux menés par les autres institutions européennes, en particulier par la Commission européenne et par le Service européen pour l'action extérieure, pour veiller à ce que les intérêts des citoyens européens guident toujours notre politique étrangère commune. Nous participons aussi activement à l'instauration et à l'amélioration des relations avec des alliés de premier plan au travers de la diplomatie parlementaire. C'est grâce à ces relations de longue date que nous contribuons à l'élaboration de règles et de normes à l'échelle mondiale et que nous faisons en sorte que la législation de l'Union européenne soit conçue d'une manière qui lui permette de jouer son rôle sur l'échiquier mondial.
