MEPs will review plans to remove eight countries from an EU tax haven blacklist, in a debate on Wednesday evening.

MEPs will hear from the EU Commission and Council on their decision to remove several countries -- including Panama and Tunisia -- from an EU blacklist of tax havens, little more than a month after they were first listed. 

 

 You can watch the plenary debate via EP Live, and EbS+.

 

 

Background

 

In January, the Commission announced that it would move eight of the original 17 countries from its black list to a “grey list”, drawing further criticism from those who are already sceptical about the lack of sanctions or other financial penalties against countries on the list.
