Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Marco Zanni, Marco Campomenosi, Matteo Adinolfi, Massimo Casanova, Antonio Maria Rinaldi, Annalisa Tardino, Lucia Vuolo
 Subject: Immigration and NGOs, transparency of EU funds

The Commission’s answer to question E-000612/2019 states that the list of beneficiaries contracted by the EU, with regard to external relations, is not estimated to be ready before 2021. In its reply to question E-002630/2019, the Commission states that, as regards international NGO networks and indirect management projects, it has already implemented the recommendations of the European Court of Auditors, while the general list of beneficiaries will be drawn up within the timeframes agreed to; at the same time, it affirms that the current monitoring and cross-referencing system allows for a reasonable level of assurance on the protection of Union funds despite the clear monitoring problem due to the absence of a complete list of beneficiaries.

Can the Commission:

provide details of any EU funding received directly or indirectly by NGOs operating both in support of migration management in general and, more specifically, in patrol and rescue operations in the Mediterranean Sea;

say whether the Early Detection and Exclusion System (EDES) has ever highlighted issues relating to the direct and indirect funding of NGOs operating both in immigration-related matters in general and, more specifically, in patrol and rescue operations in the Mediterranean Sea;

say whether it intends to conduct further investigations, through OLAF, after the disconcerting revelations in the Italian press in recent years reporting suspected links between people smugglers and NGOs in the trafficking of human beings in the Mediterranean Sea?
