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 )

 

Vandaag werd de LUX-filmprijs van het Europees Parlement 2014 toegekend aan Ida. Deze Pools/Deense film, geregisseerd door Paweł Pawlikowski, vertelt het verhaal over een jonge novice die haar tante ontmoet en voor intrede op zoek gaat naar de geheimen van haar familie. Na de ceremonie spraken wij met de regisseur en kwamen meer te weten over het succes van de film en zijn mening over de Europese cinema. (Lees meer: Pawlikowski: "Geprobeerd een film te maken die over universele dingen gaat" )

 

Waterboarding, mensen vastketenen: het onlangs verschenen verslag van de Amerikaanse Senaat over de CIA verhoormethoden uit ernstige beschuldigingen over het agentschap dat marteling gebruikte om informatie van gedetineerden te krijgen. In een plenair debat op 17 december lieten de leden weten dat het veronachtzamen van fundamentele waarden in de strijd tegen het terrorisme onaanvaardbaar is. Zij eisten dat mogelijke medeplichtigheid van EU-lidstaten moet worden onderzocht. (Lees meer: Marteling: EP-leden roepen op tot onderzoek rol EU-landen in CIA-praktijken )

 

Het Europees Parlement bespreekt woensdagmiddag om 16:30 in de plenaire vergadering de invallen en arrestaties van de Turkse politie bij verschillende kranten en tv-stations. Vooral journalisten van de aan de geestelijke Fethullah Gulen-gelieerde oppositiemedia zijn het doelwit geworden van de acties. Commissaris Dimitris Avramopoulos en de Italiaanse minister van Buitenlandse Zaken Benedetto Della Vedova zullen bij het debat aanwezig zijn.

Persmededelingen (deel 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 )

 

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 )

 

MEPs call for a comprehensive EU approach to migration and more effort to prevent further loss of life at sea in a resolution passed on Wednesday. Parliament asks the civil liberties committee to assess the various policies at stake, draw up a set of recommendations and report back to plenary with a "strategic initiative report" before the end of 2015. At least 3 072 people died in the Mediterranean Sea in the first nine months of this year. (Read more: Migration: MEPs call on EU countries to share responsibility )

 

Het Europees Parlement steunt "in principe erkenning van Palestina als staat en de tweestaten-oplossing, en vindt dat deze parallel moeten lopen met de ontwikkeling van vredesonderhandelingen, die bevorderd moeten worden". Dit stelt de resolutie die woensdag is aangenomen. Om de diplomatieke inspanningen rond the conflict te ondersteunen is ook besloten tot een "parlementariërs voor vrede" initiatief, dat EP-leden en leden van het Israëlische en Palestijnse parlement samen moet brengen (Lees meer: Resolutie erkenning Palestijnse staat )

 

Het Parlement heeft woensdag ingestemd met de voorlopige Europese begroting voor 2015 en extra middelen ter dekking van onbetaalde rekeningen in 2014. In 2015 komt de begroting uit op €145,32 miljard aan vastleggingen en €141,21 miljard aan betalingen. Aan de 2014 begroting wordt €4,25 miljard toegevoegd. (Lees meer: EU begroting 2015 goedgekeurd, rekeningen 2014 deels betaald )

 

Voorzitter Martin Schulz heeft vanmiddag tijdens een speciale ceremonie de winnaar bekend gemaakt van de Parlementaire LUX Filmprijs 2014. "Ida" van Paweł Pawlikowski vertelt het verhaal van een jonge vrouw op zoek naar haar identiteit. Het is een emotioneel, persoonlijk verhaal tegen de achtergrond van Europa's pijnlijke verleden. (Lees meer: Poolse film "Ida" wint LUX Filmprijs 2014 )
