Automated data exchange for police cooperation (“Prüm II”) (A9-0200/2023 - Paulo Rangel) NL

08-02-2024

Met deze verordening wil men de automatische uitwisseling van informatie tussen autoriteiten die belast zijn met het voorkomen, opsporen en onderzoeken van strafbare feiten reguleren. Ik heb tegen gestemd, omdat de verordening te veel de nadruk legt op de uitwisseling van informatie tussen autoriteiten, zonder afdoende waarborgen te bieden voor de bescherming van de privacy van individuen. Hoewel het belangrijk is om strafbare feiten te voorkomen, op te sporen en te onderzoeken, vind ik dat er een beter evenwicht moet zijn tussen het verzamelen van informatie en het beschermen van de privacyrechten van burgers.
Daarnaast maak ik me zorgen over de mogelijke gevolgen van het uitbreiden van gegevenscategorieën voor geautomatiseerde uitwisselingen. Het toevoegen van gezichtsafbeeldingen en politieregistraties aan de uitwisseling van informatie kan leiden tot een grotere inbreuk op de privacy en de burgerlijke vrijheden van individuen.
Ten slotte ben ik bezorgd over de mogelijkheid tot misbruik van de gegevens en de beperkingen bij het verdedigen van individuen. Op dit moment zijn de beschermingsmechanismen voor burgers tegen de overheid nog niet adequaat. We zien de desastreuze gevolgen hiervan, zoals bijvooorbeeld bij het toeslagenschandaal. Er moet meer tijd worden genomen om de potentiële gevolgen te evalueren en ervoor te zorgen dat de technische systemen en het beleid voldoen aan de hoogste normen voor gegevensbescherming en privacy.

Instant payments in euro (A9-0230/2023 - Michiel Hoogeveen) NL

07-02-2024

Het verslag verplicht financiële instellingen om onmiddellijke overschrijvingen mogelijk te maken. Het zorgt er voor dat mensen in staat zijn om geld binnen 10 seconden over te maken, op elk moment van de dag, buiten kantooruren en binnen de EU.
Alle overwegingen meegenomen heb ik besloten om tegen het voorstel te stemmen, omdat ik van mening ben dat de verplichting voor betalingsdienstaanbieders, zoals banken, om instantbetalingen aan te bieden, niet noodzakelijk is. Hoewel instant payments zeker voordelen bieden, geloven we dat de markt dit soort diensten op een natuurlijke manier zou moeten ontwikkelen, op basis van de vraag van consumenten en bedrijven. Het opleggen van deze verplichting zal leiden tot onnodige kostenverhogingen voor de banken en een aanzienlijke verhoging van de bankkosten voor alle consumenten.
Ik ben van mening dat de markt beter in staat is om te reageren op de vraag naar instantbetalingen en dat het opleggen van verplichtingen en regelgeving niet de meest geschikte aanpak is.

Plants obtained by certain new genomic techniques and their food and feed (A9-0014/2024 - Jessica Polfjärd)

07-02-2024

Innovation is crucial for achieving prosperity and addressing contemporary challenges. However, it is imperative to exercise caution during the development of new technologies to prevent inadvertently causing additional problems.
The proposal put forth by the European Commission advocates for exempting a certain category of New Genomic Techniques (NGTs) plants from the legislation governing Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in the EU. This entails treating these NGT plants as conventional plants, thereby bypassing health and environmental risk management protocols.
After consulting with scientists and experts, my decision to vote against the proposal is grounded in the following reasons:
1. The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) has highlighted certain scientific and health-related limitations in the establishment of criteria for defining the exempted NGTs.
2. In 2018, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled that organisms derived from NGTs should be subject to the same regulations as GMOs. This ruling was based on the understanding that NGTs result in genetic alterations that do not occur naturally, necessitating similar regulatory oversight as traditional GMOs.
3. The scientific discourse surrounding whether NGTs should be classified as GMOs remains unresolved. Therefore, it is premature to exempt them from all precautionary measures and risk management protocols.
