9.7. Detention conditions in the EU (B7-0687/2011) (vote)

– Before the vote:


  Birgit Sippel, (S&D).(DE) Madam President, I would like to propose a minor addition on behalf of my group in order to ensure that the rights of children and mothers are respected after sentencing. We would like to make an insertion after paragraph 4. I will read our proposal in English:

Reaffirms the importance of granting specific protection to mother detainees and to their children including through the use of alternative measures to detention in the child’s best interest, and calls on Member States and the Commission to actively promote and support such initiatives’.


(The oral amendment was accepted)

– Before the vote on paragraph 6:


  William (The Earl of) Dartmouth (EFD). - Madam President, the oral amendment reads as follows: ‘Stresses that where detention conditions are perceived as poor, or conditions risk falling below the standards required by the Council of Europe’s European Prison Rules, the transfer of prisoners should be specifically prohibited following the issuing of a European arrest warrant’.


(The oral amendment was not accepted)
