to the Commission
Rule 130
Traian Ungureanu (PPE)

 Subject:  The operational network @ON
 Answer in writing 

In 2013, Parliament adopted a resolution calling on the Member States to set up national bodies to investigate and combat criminal and mafia-style organisations, with the possibility of developing — with Europol coordination and support from the Commission — a streamlined, informal ‘anti-mafia operational network’ for the exchange of information on the structural aspects of mafia activities, on criminal and financial projects, on the location of assets and on attempted infiltration of public procurement procedures.

On 4 December 2014, the Council adopted a resolution welcoming the creation of an informal and streamlined operational network, called @ON, to counter mafia-style serious and organised crime groups.

According to the provisions of that resolution, the Commission is invited to consider the possibility of providing financial support, within the limits of the existing resources, for requesting Member States to participate in the operational activities of the network.

What is the Commission’s position with regard to this proposal?

Can the Commission take up the Council’s proposal?
