P-000122/2022
Priority question for written answer  P-000122/2022
to the Commission
Rule 138
Martin Schirdewan (The Left)
 Subject: Involvement of organised crime in corruption in sport, particularly professional football

Europol’s 2019 report entitled ‘The involvement of organised crime groups in sports corruption’ concluded that addressing and prioritising the involvement of organised crime in professional sport, especially professional football, would be crucial in the fight against organised crime in the EU. Corruption in sport not only generates considerable illegal profits but is also an opportunity to launder large amounts of money globally.

1. What measures have been taken in the EU to follow up on the Europol report and address the involvement of organised crime in professional sport?

2. To what extent was the issue taken into account when the 2021 Commission proposal to revise anti-money-laundering rules was drawn up?

3. What protected channels and legal protection can whistleblowers from the world of sport in the EU rely on?
