 Subject:  Application of Common Position 2001/931/CFSP
 Answer in writing 

On 26 September 2017, a representative of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Leila Khaled, addressed the European Parliament in a side event organised by the Confederal Group of the European United Left — Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL Group). The PFLP is listed as a terrorist organisation on the list of persons, groups and entities subject to enhanced measures in police and judicial cooperation (EU terrorist list). Whereas Ms Khaled does not appear on the list individually, the fact that she was allowed to speak on behalf of the PFLP in the European Union is extremely troubling, given that Ms Khaled is an active member of the PFLP, regularly incites to violence, and may potentially be using funds linked to the PFLP.

1. Does the Council intend to revise the restrictive measures set out in Common Position 2001/931/CFSP in order to prevent this from happening?

2. Will the Council consider adding Ms Leila Khaled to the EU terrorist list?
