The fees that banks charge retailers to process shoppers’ payments should be capped under uniform rules across in the EU following a deal struck by Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee and Council negotiators on Wednesday. The cap would apply to both cross-border and domestic card-based payments and should result in lower costs for consumers. (Read more: MEPs secure deal to cap card payment fees )

 

Idag tilldelades Europaparlamentets LUX-pris 2014 filmen Ida, den polsk-danska samproduktionen regisserad av Paweł Pawlikowski. Det är en historia om en ung blivande nunna, som möter sin moster och åker iväg på en resa för att upptäcka sin familjs mörka förflutna. Efter prisceremonin fick vi en pratstund med regissören om skapandet av filmen, framgången och vad han tycker om europeisk filmkonst. (Läs mer: Paweł Pawlikowski: "Jag försökte göra en film om universella saker" )

 

Skendränkning, människor fastkedjade i väggarna, rektal tvångsmatning: Amerikanska senatens nyligen presenterade rapport om CIA:s förhörsmetoder innehåller allvarliga anklagelser om att myndigheten använder sig av tortyr för att få fram information från fångar. Under en debatt i kammaren om rapporten den 17 december, påpekade ledamöter att det är oacceptabelt att åsidosätta grundläggande rättigheter i kampen mot terrorism. De krävde en utredning av EU-länders medverkan i tortyren. (Läs mer: Ledamöter om CIA-rapport: tortyr oacceptabelt & EU-medverkan måste utredas )

 

Den turkiska polisens gripande av journalister och razzior mot en tidning och en TV-station med kopplingar till den USA-baserade imamen Fethullah Gülen är temat för en debatt idag cirka kl 16:30. I debatten deltar också Dimitris Avramopoulos EU-kommissionär med ansvar för migration, inrikes frågor och medborgarskap liksom den italienske statssekreteraren för utrikes frågor Benedetto Della Vedova. (Läs mer: Debatt om pressfrihet och gripande av journalister i Turkiet )

 
Pressmeddelande (del 2)
 

The EU should step up its efforts to help the steel industry out of the crisis, MEPs say in a non-binding resolution voted on Wednesday. They ask the European Commission to ensure that trade deals improve steel export conditions and check that EU competition and state aid rules do not lead to unfairness between EU countries. MEPs also call for investments in workers' education and training as well as in steel research. (Read more: MEPs urge EU to step up efforts to help steel industry out of the crisis )

 

Europaparlamentets ledamöter vill att EU tar fram en omfattande migrationsstrategi och efterfrågar fler ansträngningar för att förhindra att fler liv går till spillo till havs. I en resolution de antog på onsdagen uppmanar de också utskottet för medborgerliga rättigheter att utvärdera de olika strategier som kan komma på tal, utarbeta rekommendationer och lägga fram ett strategiskt initiativbetänkande för kammaren före slutet av 2015. (Läs mer: Migration - parlamentet vill att EU-länderna delar på ansvaret )

 

Europaparlamentet "stöder i princip ett erkännande av Palestina som stat och tvåstatslösningen, och anser att detta bör gå hand i hand med utvecklingen av fredssamtal, som bör föras framåt", enligt en resolution som antogs på onsdagen. För att stödja EU:s diplomatiska arbete för fredsprocessen i Mellanöstern bestämde sig ledamöterna också för att lansera initiativet ”Parlamentsledamöter för fred”, som ska sammanföra ledamöter från Europaparlamentet och de israeliska och palestinska parlamenten (Läs mer: Europaparlamentets resolution om erkännande av en palestinsk stat )

 

The new Internal Security Strategy for 2015-2019 should be "easily adaptable to evolving situations" with a joined-up approach across the Union to tackle foreign fighters, cyber-security, human trafficking, organised crime, money laundering and corruption, , says a resolution passed by Parliament on Wednesday. (Read more: New EU Security Strategy must tackle emerging threats, MEPs say )

 

Parlamentet antog på onsdagen EU:s budget för 2015 och en tilläggsbudget för 2014. Budgeten för 2015 ligger på 145,32 miljarder euro i åtaganden och 141,21 miljarder i betalningar. Tilläggsbudgeten innebär 4,25 miljarder för att betala räkningar innan årsskiftet. (Läs mer: Parlamentet antar EU:s budgetar för 2014 och 2015 )

 

Europaparlamentets talman Martin Schulz tillkännagav på onsdagen att den polsk-danska filmen Ida vinner årets Luxpris för film. Ida handlar om en ung kvinna som söker sin identitet och är en personlig berättelse som utspelar sig i Europas smärtsamma förflutna. (Läs mer: Polsk-danska filmen Ida vinner 2014 års Luxpris )
