Next Petitions Committee meeting

21-01-2021 - 11:03
In the context of the exponential growth of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the President of the European Parliament has announced a number of measures to contain the spread of epidemic and to safeguard Parliament's core activities.

The current precautionary measures adopted by the European Parliament to contain the spread of COVID-19 do not affect work on legislative priorities. Core activities are reduced, but maintained to ensure that the institution's legislative, budgetary, scrutiny functions are maintained.

The meetings will be with remote participation for Members (being able to view and listen to proceedings, ask for the floor and intervene in the meeting). Other participants are invited to follow the meeting through webstreaming.

Following these decisions, the next PETI Committee meeting will take place on:
Tuesday 26 January 2021
9.00-11.00 and 11.30-12.30
and 13.45-15.45 and 16.15-18.45
by remote connection (via Room Paul-Henri Spaak 1A2)

On 26 January 2021, Members will discuss three petitions focusing on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on international travel. One petition complains about the difficulties of travelling outside the EU during this period, while another calls on the EU institutions to adopt common rules on international couples’ travel. Finally, the last petition laments the closure of the EU borders to Russian citizens, highlighting its impact on both the personal life of citizens and on the two economies.

At the meeting of 26 January 2021, the Committee will examine two petitions raising the issues of discrimination of the LGBTQI community and the creation of LGBT-free zones in Poland. The petitioners call for the intervention of the EU institutions to stop the defamation, violence and hate speech against LGBTQI persons and to abolish LGBT-free zones, as they are incompatible with the Charter of Fundamental Rights, the Treaties and values of the EU.
