8. Announcement by the President
CRE

The President had decided under Rule 166 to impose a penalty on Janusz Korwin-Mikke as a result of the unacceptable remarks he had made on the subject of African migrants at the sitting on 7 June 2016. That penalty consisted, firstly, of his forfeiting his entitlement to the subsistence allowance for a period of ten days and, secondly, his suspension from any of the activities of Parliament or its bodies for a period of five consecutive days on which Parliament or any one of its bodies, committees or delegations were scheduled to meet, starting from 12 September 2016. The person concerned had been notified of this decision.

The President also announced that he had been informed of another speech, made by Janusz Korwin-Mikke that morning, in which he might also have made unacceptable remarks.
