Mitkä ovat kesäajan edut ja ongelmat? Eurooppa siirtyy kesäaikaan sunnuntaina, ja mepit keskustelivat asiantuntijoiden kanssa aiheesta 24. maaliskuuta. "Meidän täytyy vielä lainsäädäntöä eteenpäin ja suullisen kysymyksen tekeminen Euroopan komissiolle voisi olla yksi tapa vauhdittaa asian käsittelyä", oikeudellisten asioiden valiokunnan puheenjohtaja Pavel Svoboda (EPP, Tsekin tasavalta) totesi.

Kongolainen gynekologi, mielipiteenvapauden puolesta jaettavan parlamentin Saharov-palkinnon voittaja 2014 Denis Mukwege, oli parlamentissa torstaina 26. maaliskuuta puhumassa ihmisoikeuksien alivaliokunnassa. Kokouksessa keskusteltiin naisiin kohdistuvasta väkivallasta sekä Kongon demokraattisen tasavallan lähestyvistä vaaleista sekä maan tulevaisuudesta. Mukwege hoitaa maan sodissa seksuaalisen väkivallan uhreiksi joutuneita naisia. Puhuimme hänelle kokouksen jälkeen.

Euroopan parlamentin täysistunnossa hyväksyttiin Ukrainalle suunnattu apupaketti keskiviikkona 25. maaliskuuta. Tuen suuruus on 1,8 miljardia euroa ja sen on kaikkien aikojen suurin EU:n ulkopuoliselle maalle myönnetty rahoitus. Gabrielius Landsbergis (EPP, Liettua) kertoi siitä, miten apu tulee jakautumaan ja miten EU:n Venäjälle asettamien pakotteet ovat toimineet. Lisäksi keskusteltiin parlamentin roolista. (Lue lisää: Landsbergis: Tukipaketilla autetaan Ukrainaa )

 

Energiaunioni, Kreikka ja talouskasvun aikaansaaminen olivat kaikki viime viikolla olleen Eurooppa-neuvoston kokouksen agendalla. Mepit olivat tyytyväisiä suunnitelmiin, joilla tiivistetään energiayhteistyötä, ja vaativat, että Kreikan tilanteeseen kiinnitetään enemmän huomiota. (Lue lisää: Eurooppa-neuvoston kokouksen anti: Energiaunioni ja Kreikan tilanne )

 

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 )

 

The question of whether Germany’s minimum pay rules should apply to foreign lorry drivers using its roads divided MEPs evenly in a debate with transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc on Wednesday evening. The European Commission is still assessing the implications of these rules, which the Germany partially suspended (for transit drivers) early this year, but they must in any event comply with EU law, she said. (Read more: Commission to clarify whether minimum wage may apply to foreign lorry drivers )

 

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 )
