The reopening of the prosecution against the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic on the misuse of EU funds and potential conflicts of interest (debate)

  Petri Sarvamaa (PPE). – Mr President, Council, Commission, I really ask you to listen very carefully to what I will say. This is extremely harmful to the European Union. This is extremely damaging to the public image of the Union.

Theoretically speaking, the Babiš case is not even the only one of such huge proportions. We only know what happened inside one country, and we know that he is an oligarch. But it’s really not about about Babiš, is what I wanted to say. I want to say this: if the financial regulation Article 61 is not a sufficient base, then we have to change it, and we have to change it fast. We need true powers for the European Union to bring an end to this, and EPO deserves all the needed resources to do that.
