Vuosittain EU:ssa menetetään 1,7 miljoonaa työpaikkaa, koska yritykset eivät pysty enää maksamaan laskujaan ja niiden varat realisoidaan velkojen maksamiseksi. Noin neljäsosassa näistä tapauksista on EU-rajat ylittävä elementti. Mepit keskustelivat näistä kansainvälisistä tapauksista keskiviikkona. Vaikeuksiin ajautuneille yrityksille annettaisiin toinen mahdollisuus, joka kattaisi konkurssin selvittämisen sekä auttaisi yrityksiä selvittämään tilanteensa jo ennen täydellistä maksukyvyttömyyttä.

Today’s unprecedented level of instability at EU borders demands that the EU and its member states shoulder more responsibility for their security and defence now, say MEPs in a resolution voted on Thursday. They urge member states to use Common Security and Defence Policy tools more effectively, improve the fit between external and internal security measures, and pool and share resources, so as to counter terrorism, fight organised crime, strengthen cyber-defence and cope with migration. (Read more: Parliament urges EU member states to gear up for new security challenges now )

 

Parliament passed three resolutions on Thursday, calling for Zimbabwean human rights activist Itai Dzarana to be found immediately; the release of all political prisoners in Swaziland; protection for Rohingya asylum seekers and action against human trafficking in Thailand.

Parlamentin täysistunnossa keskusteltiin 20. toukokuuta komission suunnitelmista koskien Eurooppaan suuntautuvaa muuttoliikettä ja siirtolaisia, jotka asettavat itsensä vaaraan ylittäessään Välimerta. Komission ensimmäinen varapuheenjohtaja Frans Timmermans ja maahanmuutosta vastaava komissaari Dimitris Avramopoulos kertoivat suunnitelluista toimista, joita ovat muun muassa maahantulijoiden jakaminen jäsenmaiden kesken, kiintiöt pakolaisten ottamiseen ja lisärahoitus rajavalvontaan.

Parlamentti esittää, että EU:ssa otetaan käyttöön tinaa, tantaalia, volframia ja kultaa konfliktialueilta maahantuovien yritysten sertifiointi. Parlamentti hyväksyi keskiviikkona kantansa ns. konfliktimineraaleja koskevaan lakiesitykseen äänin 402 puolesta, 118 vastaan ja 171 tyhjää. Sertifioinnin tavoitteena on varmistaa, ettei näistä ns. konfliktimineraaleista saatuja tuloja käytettäisi ruokkimaan konflikteja ja ihmisoikeusloukkauksia. (Lue lisää: Konfliktimineraalit: Parlamentti esittää pakollista sertifiointia maahantuojille )

 

Tiedot yritysten tosiasiallisista omistajista on kirjattava keskitettyihin rekistereihin, joihin viranomaisilla ja muilla oikeutetun perusteen omaavilla henkilöillä on pääsy, todetaan säännöissä, jotka parlamentti hyväksyi keskiviikkona. Uuden rahanpesun vastaisen direktiivin tarkoitus on edistää toimia veropetoksia ja terrorismin rahoitusta vastaan. Parlamentti hyväksyi samassa yhteydessä myös uudet varainsiirtojen jäljittämistä helpottavat säännöt. (Lue lisää: Tiukempia sääntöjä rahanpesun estämiseksi )

The EU must take effective measures to prevent the spread of Xylella fastidiosa bacteria beyond Italy, where it is severely damaging olive trees, says a resolution passed by Parliament on Wednesday. MEPs welcome EU import restrictions on plants from affected areas in third countries but say more may be needed. They also urge that growers be compensated for their losses, and suggest stepping up funding for research to combat the bacteria, which may attack other plants. (Read more: Olive trees: MEPs demand action to halt spread of killer bacteria )

 

MEPs pressed the European Commission not to withdraw a draft EU directive on maternity leave, despite four years’ deadlock over it in the EU Council of Ministers, in a resolution voted on Wednesday. They also urged the ministers to resume talks and agree an official position. (Read more: Maternity leave: MEPs urge Council to restart talks )
