Conclusion of an EU - New Zealand agreement, under negotiation, on the exchange of personal data for fighting serious crime and terrorism (A9-0131/2020 - Annalisa Tardino)

10-07-2020
Written explanations of vote

. – The transfers of personal data gathered in the context of criminal investigations and further processed by Europol can have a significant impact on the lives of the individuals concerned. The level of protection provided for in the agreement once concluded, as well as in applicable law and practice in New Zealand, must be essentially equivalent to the level of protection provided for in EU law. Any exchange of personal data between Europol and NZ, as with any other third country, has to be in full compliance with fundamental rights and EU data protection rules. The EP should strongly call for ensuring adequate data protection safeguards when it comes to the exchange of personal data between Europol and third countries.
While we believe that the EP position reflected in this report is strong enough and was significantly improved by some of our amendments, we still voted against in Plenary. The ID rapporteur and a center-right majority has consistently voted against our amendments that would have underlined the rising threat of right-wing terrorism.
EP should be consulted before Council conclusions are adopted and its opinion taken into account. EP should have a strong role in international negotiations and agreements with third countries.

On EP NEWSHUB

Le @Europarl_FR a pris position contre le profilage ethnique dans la résolution suite à l'assassinat de G. Floyd. Pas de portée légale mais le signe qu'une majorité de députés de différents groupes est prête à s'y opposer. Au PE je compte bien continuer à avancer !

Profilage ethnique par la police annoncé officiellement au JT de la @VRT @policefederale ? Le délit de faciès @liguedh_be continue et est désormais présenté comme normal suite aux faits du week-end #ComitéP ! L'extrême droite s'en délecte sur les réseaux. https://t.co/3Tvq4wprqb 

En tant que présidente du groupe de suivi #APE UE-Afrique de l'Est et du Sud (Comores, Madagascar, Maurice, Seychelles, Zambie, Zimbabwe) #ecocide à Île Maurice, protection de la biodiversité seront à l'agenda de rentrée #TradePolicyReview #ClimateEmergency #biodiversity @ipbesfr
