Parliament to name “Panama Papers” inquiry committee members  

Following its decision to set up an inquiry committee into the “Panama Papers” revelations on offshore companies and their ultimate beneficiaries, Parliament will vote Thursday on a list of 65 members.


The committee, whose label will be PANA, is to investigate alleged contraventions and maladministration in the application by the EU Commission or member states of EU laws on money laundering, tax avoidance and tax evasion. It will have 65 members and twelve months to present its report.

Parliament approved the committee’s mandate in a plenary vote on Wednesday 8 June, following a proposal by the Conference of Presidents (EP President and political group leaders).

The draft list of committee members will be available in "Priority information and documents".
