Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Elly Schlein (S&D)

 Subject:  Situation regarding honorary judges and honorary deputy prosecutors
 Answer(s) 
Given that:
Honorary judges of the court (GOTs) and honorary deputy-prosecutors (VPOs) were introduced into the Italian legal system to supplement professional judges; however, the increase in the legal workload over the years has resulted in recourse to GOTs and VPOs becoming commonplace;
The law provided for a mandate of three years, renewable once, for them, but to date no GOTs or VPOs have stopped working once the period has expired;
New Enabling Act No 57/2016 does not provide for paid holidays, social security benefit or maternity leave allowance for either function,
Does the Commission believe that law 57/2016 runs contrary to EC law in the areas of labour, protection of workers and gender equality, in particular:
Directive 99/70/EC, clause 5(1)(a) (on which an infringement proceeding has been opened);
Articles 2, 9 and 15 of Directive 2006/54/EC;
Article 7 of Directive 93/104/EC;
Articles 31 and 34 of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights?

Will the Commission intervene to guarantee compliance with EC law?
