Around 2,500 redundant workers of the former French road haulage company Mory-Ducros, which closed in 2014, should get EU aid worth €6 million to help them back into work, said Budgets Committee MEPs in a vote on Wednesday. The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund aid still needs to be approved by Parliament as a whole and the Council of Ministers.

A draft EU law to make the benchmarks used to price EU citizens’ mortgages, loans and bonds more trustworthy was backed by the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee on Tuesday. The text (lead MEP Cora van Nieuwenhuizen, ALDE, NL) aims to clean up the benchmark-setting process, by curbing conflicts of interest like those that led to the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) rigging scandals of recent years. (Read more: Economic affairs MEPs target conflicts of interest in benchmark setting )


Draft EU rules to ensure that the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty is fully respected in member states were approved by the Civil Liberties Committee on Tuesday. MEPs inserted amendments to prevent statements by public authorities that might suggest a suspect is guilty before a final conviction, ensure that the burden of proof stays with the prosecution and guarantee the rights to remain silent, not to incriminate oneself and to be present at trial.

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.

Comunicate de presă (partea a doua)

Întrebarea dacă regulile privind salariul minim din Germania trebuie să se aplice șoferilor străini de camion care utilizează drumurile din această țară i-a divizat pe deputați în dezbaterea cu Comisarul Violeta Bulc, miercuri seara. Comisia Europeană evaluează încă implicațiile acestor reguli, pe care Germania le-a suspendat parțial (pentru șoferii aflați în tranzit) la începutul acestui an, însă în orice caz regulile UE trebuie respectate, a subliniat Comisarul. (Mai mult: Comisia să clarifice dacă salariul minim se aplică șoferilor străini de camion )


Statele membre UE trebuie să fie mai transparente privind deciziile lor naționale de impozitare pentru că o competiție incorectă a taxelor distorsionează competiția între companii și poate duce la o situație în care salariile și condițiile de muncă vor fi tot mai mult diminuate pentru a atrage și a păstra companiile, au avertiza deputații în dezbaterea de miercuri privind taxarea, la care a participat comisarul Pierre Moscovici. (Mai mult: Dezbatere cu Moscovici: deputații cer taxe corecte )


Deputații au aprobat miercuri împrumutul de 1,8 miliarde de euro pe care UE intenționează să îl acorde Ucrainei, pentru a ajuta reechilibrarea pe termen scurt a balanței de plăți. UE va lua cu împrumut acești bani din surse externe și îi va împrumuta Ucrainei la aceeași dobândă. Împrumutul va fi condiționat de promisiunea Ucrainei că va face reforme structurale care să rezolve problemele ce au dus la criza actuală. (Mai mult: Parlamentul European aprobă împrumutul de 1,8 miliarde de euro pentru Ucraina )


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 )


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 )
