Question for written answer E-000754-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Lars Adaktusson (PPE)

 Subject:  The EU's SAFFRON programme for preventing radicalisation
 Answer in writing 

In an article published by the British newspaper the Daily Telegraph on 23 January 2018, entitled ‘EU-funded anti-terror videos accused of being ISIL recruitment tools’‘, about the SAFFRON programme’s #heartofdarkness radicalisation prevention project, a Commission spokesperson was quoted as insisting that the Commission has ‘always monitored the use of EU funding carefully’.

If this is the case, can the Commission either explain how it happened that it failed to monitor this particular project, and/or how it managed to completely misunderstand the content of the videos concerned?
