Vote on sweeping proposals to stamp out practices exposed by Panama Papers
Better regulation of financial intermediaries, better protection of whistle-blowers and a single definition of tax havens are among sweeping proposals up for vote on Wednesday.
The recommendations are part of a swathe of reforms proposed by the Parliament’s Special Inquiry into Money laundering, Tax avoidance and Tax evasion (PANA) which is nearing the end of its mandate after eighteen months’ work.
MEPs will debate the findings of the Committee, which was originally set up in the wake of the Panama Papers revelations, before they vote on its many recommendations.
After the vote, the final report and recommendations will be passed to the Commission and Council.
Procedure: Own initiative, Special committee/Committee of inquiry
Debate/vote: Tuesday, 12 December
Vote: Wednesday, 13 December
Press conference: Wednesday, 13 December - 14,30
