De leden keurden maatregelen goed om te voorkomen dat de opbrengst van conflictmineralen wordt gebruikt voor de financiering van gewapende conflicten en riep de regeringen op om de impasse te doorbreken over harmonisatie van zwangerschapsverlof in de EU. Ze debatteerden ook over maatregelen voor de migrantencrisis op de Middellandse Zee. Verder gaven zij groen licht voor strengere regels tegen witwassen van geld.

Bedrijven in het nauw krijgen een tweede kans om hun financiële situatie te verbeteren met nieuwe regels voor insolventie, die op 20 mei werden goedgekeurd. Ieder jaar gaan in de EU 1,7 miljoen banen verloren door faillissementen. Met de nieuwe wetgeving voor grensoverschrijdende faillissementen wordt aan bedrijven die in financiële moeilijkheden zijn maar verder gezond, een andere mogelijkheid geboden om eruit te raken. De plannen omvatten ook maatregelen om bedrijven preventief te helpen. (Lees meer: In zwaar weer: verbeterde regels voor grensoverschrijdende faillissementen )

 

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.

Persmededelingen (deel 2)
 

De leden debatteren woensdagmiddag over de politieke crisis in de Voormalige Joegoslavische Republiek Macedonië met de Hoge Vertegenwoordiger voor buitenlands beleid, Federica Mogherini. Het land op de westelijke Balkan -dat in december 2005 de status van kandidaat-lidstaat kreeg - werd de afgelopen dagen opgeschrikt door geweld en massale demonstraties. De delegatievoorzitter voor betrekkingen met de Voormalige Joegoslavische Republiek Macedonië, Alojz Peterle, geeft zijn visie op de situatie. (Lees meer: Alojz Peterle over situatie in de Voormalige Joegoslavische Republiek Macedonië )

 

De werkelijke eigenaren van bedrijven moeten worden vermeld in centrale registers in EU-landen die toegankelijk dienen te zijn voor autoriteiten en mensen met een legitieme interesse, zo stelt de richtlijn die woensdag in het Europees Parlement is aangenomen. De nieuwe anti-witwas-richtlijn beoogt onder meer belastingontduiking en financiering van terrorisme tegen te gaan. Ook zijn nieuwe regels aangenomen die het makkelijker moeten maken om overboekingen te traceren. (Lees meer: Strengere aanpak witwassen )

 

EU importers of tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold for manufacturing consumer goods need to be certified by the EU to ensure that they do not fuel conflicts and human rights abuses in conflict areas, say MEPs in their position on a draft law adopted on Wednesday by 402 votes to 118, with 171 abstentions. (Read more: Conflict minerals: MEPs ask for mandatory certification of EU importers )

 

Het Europees Parlement wil voorkomen dat de Commissie de ontwerprichtlijn zwangerschapsverlof terugtrekt en dringt bij de lidstaten aan om eindelijk - de voorstellen zijn al vier jaar geblokkeerd in de Raad - een gezamenlijk standpunt in te nemen. (Lees meer: EP herhaalt standpunt: twintig weken moederschapsverlof )

 

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 )

 

The calendar of European Parliament part-sessions for 2016, tabled by the EP Conference of Presidents, was approved by MEPs on Wednesday. (Read more: EP 2016 calendar of plenary sessions approved )
