De vergaderperiode van het Europees Parlement vindt plaats van 25 tot 25 maart 2015

 
 

De Roma, Europa's grootste etnische minderheid, worden vaak onderworpen aan discriminatie en sociale uitsluiting. Op woensdag debatteerden de EP-leden over de huidige discriminatie van Roma en EU-erkenning van de Roma-genocide in de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Er wonen naar schatting 10 miljoen Roma in Europa en daarvan 6 miljoen binnen de EU. (Lees meer: Roma: Debat over discriminatie van Europa's grootste etnische minderheid )

 

De financiële steun van € 1,8 miljard voor Oekraïne, de grootste die ooit naar een niet-EU-land ging, werd door de leden op woensdag 25 maart goedgekeurd. Voorafgaand aan de stemming spraken wij met de rapporteur, Gabrielius Landsbergis, een christendemocraat uit Litouwen, over hoe het zal worden ingezet, de effectiviteit van de sancties tegen Rusland en de rol van het EP. (Lees meer: Gabrielius Landsbergis: "Sancties tegen Rusland werpen al vruchten af" )

 

Dr Denis Mukwege, the 2014 Sakharov Prize laureate, described political problems in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and his difficulties in tackling the problem of sexual abuse of women and even small children, in a Human Rights Subcommittee debate on Thursday. MEPs discussed how the EU could best support Dr Mukwege’s work, and some called for legally-binding rules on trade in conflict minerals. (Read more: Democracy and values are problematic in DRC, says Denis Mukwege )

 

De vraag of het Duitse minimumloon wel of niet moet gelden voor buitenlandse vrachtwagenchauffeurs op doorreis verdeelt het Europees Parlement, zo bleek woensdagavond tijdens het plenaire debat met transportcommissaris Violeta Bulc. (Lees meer: EP aan Commissie: Geldt Duits minimum loon wel/niet voor vrachtwagenchauffeurs? )

 
Persmededelingen (deel 2)
 

De energie-unie, Griekenland en de economie werden allemaal fel bediscussieerd tijdens de plenaire vergadering op 25 maart in een debat over de Europese Raad van vorige week. De leden waren ingenomen met de plannen voor een nauwere samenwerking op het gebied van energievraagstukken, maar vroegen aandacht voor de situatie in Griekenland. (Lees meer: Europese Raad: Debat over energie-unie en situatie Griekenland )

 

The 18 March terrorist attacks on the Tunis Bardo museum were clearly directed against Tunisia’s transition to democracy, as the “lone success story of the ‘Arab Spring’”, said MEPs in a debate with EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini on Wednesday evening. All speakers insisted on the need to maintain or beef up EU support for Tunisia, so to in encourage it to pursue its democratic transition and not be intimidated by attempts to cause anarchy and chaos. (Read more: Terror attacks targeted Tunisia's democratic path: MEPs call for more EU support )

 

Tackling tax evasion should be a top EU priority. EU countries and the European Commission should play a leading role in discussing how to fight tax fraud and aggressive tax planning in the OECD and other relevant fora, says Parliament in its resolution on tax, voted on Wednesday. (Read more: EP takes stance on tax transparency, burdens, avoidance and evasion )

 

EU member states must be more transparent about their national tax rulings, because unfair tax competition distorts competition among companies and could lead to a “race to the bottom”, warned many MEPs in Wednesday’s debate with taxation Commissioner Pierre Moscovici. (Read more: Moscovici debate: MEPs make the case for fairer taxation )

 

Het Europees Parlement heeft woensdag ingestemd met €1,8 miljard aan leningen voor Oekraïne waarmee het land de nood op de betalingsbalans moet keren. De Europese Unie leent dit geld op de internationale kapitaalmarkt om het vervolgens met hetzelfde rentepercentage aan Oekraïne door te lenen. Voorwaarde voor de steun is dat Oekraïne structurele hervormingen doorvoert om problemen die de crisis hebben veroorzaakt te keren. (Lees meer: Europees Parlement keurt €1.8 miljard aan leningen voor Oekraïne goed )

 

More than 2,000 workers made redundant in Greece and Ireland in 2014 will receive EU aid worth €11.3 million to help them find jobs, Parliament decided on Wednesday. The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) aid has already been approved by the EU Council of Ministers. (Read more: Parliament approves EU aid for redundant workers in Greece and Ireland )
