 E-002746/2019
Answer given by Mr Avramopoulos
on behalf of the European Commission
Question reference: E-002746/2019

The Commission has no specific information on the incident referred to by the Honourable Member.

In accordance with Article 72 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, the responsibility for maintaining law and order remains with the Member States, in the present case the Slovak Republic.

Although the Commission considers that, as a general principle, any use of force should be proportionate, it is not for the Commission to examine or evaluate any such action by national authorities such as police officers. In this vein, the Commission has no plans to propose measures at EU level against the excessive use of force by national police forces in sport stadiums.
