9.5. Mandate of the special committee on organised crime, corruption and money laundering (B7-0151/2012) (vote)

After the vote:


  Rosario Crocetta (S&D).(IT) Mr President, ladies and gentlemen, I think that today is a great result for Parliament, because when I wrote to President Buzek on 15 July saying that ‘we need to set up an anti-mafia committee’, I remember many Members from different countries saying, ‘But the mafia is only a problem in Sicily and in Italy’.

Today, recognition by our fellow Members from the north and from the whole of Europe that there is a problem of ‘organised crime in Europe’, and the desire to fight it together is, I believe, a momentous fact, and I would like to thank you, Mr President, and Parliament as a whole.



  President. – The explanations of vote are next. If we have a debate afterwards, I have to allow everyone to speak.
