Compared with other agricultural elections in other Member States, does the Commission think the census and the planned rules are the best option? Could it give examples of good practices in agricultural elections in other Member States? The Commission has no competence as regards the elections to the Agriculture Council in Spain or in any other Member State. This is purely a national matter. These differences are due in part to the different taxation levels in Member States. However, huge differences have also been noted in the profits margin reaped by the various firms involved in the intermediate stages of the procedure, from the purchase of the raw material crude oil up to the placing of the final product on the market.
Similar differences are also seen for other types of fuel. At first sight, such large differences cannot be justified in a supposedly single market, particularly for homogenous products such as fuels. Is the Commission aware of the above differences, and does it monitor fuel price developments in Member States closely? What is the reason, in its view, for these large differences, and can they be justified on the basis of real cost data?
Does the Commission see profiteering, inadequate functioning of the market or abuse of a dominant position in countries such as Cyprus and Portugal, where the profits margin in the process of bringing fuels to the market appear to be extremely high? What does it intend to do to ensure convergence of prices between Member States in the category of products that are fundamental to citizens, such as fuels? The evolution in time of these factors can of course be different from one Member State to another, which can possibly amplify the differences.
If required, it will not hesitate to act, either itself or in coordination with national competition authorities, if it receives sufficient information pointing to collusive behaviour of undertakings or abusive behaviour of individual companies. Cela n'est pas inhabituel dans l'industrie spatiale. Aucun lancement de satellites Galileo n'aura lieu en The French press has reported recently a further delay in progress on the European satellite navigation programme Galileo. The report spoke of problems the firm OHB is having with the manufacture of the constellation satellites.
OHB was awarded the contract by the Commission in Can the Commission confirm that problems have been encountered? Can it state clearly and openly, what these problems are? Has the situation been audited and will the audit mention the numerous mistakes made in terms of the technology chosen? What impact will these problems have on the delivery schedule for all the satellites in the constellation and on Galileo becoming operational?
Will this have financial repercussions as well? Finally, does the Commission consider itself responsible in any way, in view of the objections raised when it awarded the contract to OHB in ? Considering the technical nature of this project, why are we not drawing on the know-how of EADS Astrium and Thales Alenia Space, the European leaders in the space industry? A number of non-compliances with the specifications identified during testing are delaying the delivery of Galileo satellites by the firm OHB. This is not unusual for space industrial activities. The test duration has been extended to resolve the problems.
The Galileo design and technological choices are robust and adequate. Tests carried out on the four satellites already deployed have demonstrated an excellent positioning precision.
The prolongation of tests impacts the delivery schedule for the OHB satellites. ESA will submit to the Commission a revised launch schedule on completion of the key thermal vacuum test. No launch of Galileo satellites will take place in The Commission has requested ESA to take all appropriate measures to guarantee the provision of early services by the end of , beginning of The Commission will not require supplementary budget.
Under the firm and fixed price contract concluded with OHB the risk of performance is borne by the contractor. OHB will assume the consequences of the delay. Penalties for the late delivery will be claimed by the Commission in accordance with contractual provisions. Hoeveelheid energiesubsidies per energiebron. Dit onderwerp verdient dan ook een uitgebreid debat in al de Europese instellingen.
Om dit debat grondig te kunnen voeren moet men echter beschikken over correct, gedetailleerd en recent cijfermateriaal. Het werkdocument betreffende bovengenoemde communicatie lekte al uit in oktober in de Duitse pers. Dit document bevatte ook passages waarin cijfermateriaal zat opgenomen over de hoeveelheid steun die de verschillende energiebronnen hernieuwbare, fossiele en nucleaire energie konden ontvangen in Deze passages, die te vinden waren op pagina 2 van het werkdocument, werden echter geschrapt en zijn ook niet opgenomen in de definitieve versie van de communicatie.
Thankfully, two drafts, a preliminary one and the final draft, were both made available. To what extent are the media reports correct in stating that the available figures clearly indicate that coal-fired, gas and nuclear power plants actually receive more money than renewable energy sources? The correct use of support instruments is indeed crucial for the further development of our energy landscape and the attainment of our energy and climate targets. This subject therefore ought to be debated in detail within all the European institutions.
To enable this debate to be conducted thoroughly, however, correct, detailed and recent statistics are needed. The working document concerning the above communication was already leaked to the German press in October. This document also contained passages which included statistics on the amount of support given to the various energy sources renewables, fossil fuels and nuclear power in However, these passages, which appeared on page 2 of the working document, were deleted and do not appear in the final version of the communication either.
Can the Commission indicate why these figures were deleted and were not included in the final version of the communication? Can the Commission provide detailed figures showing what type of support, and how much, was received by each category of energy, including indirect support and support for research and development? The Commission would refer the Honourable Member to its answer to written question.
Warum eine kritische wissenschaftliche Edition?
In einigen Mitgliedstaaten, z. Why do renewable energy resources receive relatively little in the way of subsidies compared with the conventional energy sector — particularly in view of the necessary energy turnaround? How does the Commission intend to regulate the granting of subsidies in the future? If the granting of subsidies is to continue to focus on conventional energy sources, how does the Commission justify this? Public intervention must be proportionate and well designed in order to make most of it, to keep energy bills affordable and not to distort the functioning of the internal market.
Such principles apply to all technologies. For some Member States, for example Germany, evidence exists that for some time renewables received support above the costs of production. Whilst advising against retroactive cuts, the Commission considers that cost-reflective support for renewables is important to underpin long-term stable investment conditions for renewables. If granting of subsidies involves state aid, it is regulated by the Treaty and the relevant state aid jurisprudence. In the abovementioned Communication, the Commission sets out which principles and criteria it intends to rely on when reviewing public interventions in this context.
Liste von Kommissionsmitglied Oettinger. Infrastruktur im Sinn des Allgemeinwohls ist eine Sache. Wie rechtfertigt die Kommission im Einzelfall, dass nicht umweltschonendere und langfristig gesehen weniger invasive Leitungsformen genutzt werden, weil sie teurer sind? Stellt sich heraus, dass ein Projekt, das auf der Unionsliste der Vorhaben von gemeinsamem Interesse steht, mit dem EU-Recht nicht in Einklang steht, sollte es von dieser Liste gestrichen werden.
Infrastructure of common interest is one thing. It is quite another when citizens of the European Union suffer as a result of large-scale projects. Can the Commission provide a detailed statement on how it might explain to the citizens concerned, from whose money as taxpayers the subsidies for these projects are actually paid, why large pipelines are to be installed and large-scale projects implemented with a limited EIA procedure? In relation to specific cases, how does the Commission justify the fact that pipelines that are more environmentally friendly and less invasive in the long term are not being used because they are more expensive?
Which energy infrastructure projects in Austria have been included on this list? How will the Commission ensure that citizens are protected and quality of life is maintained in the areas concerned? The Projects of Common Interest are subject to an environmental impact assessment.
The Projects of Common Interest shall, however, benefit from more efficient permitting procedures, whilst the high standard of environmental assessment and protection is maintained. The PCI list identifies the projects which are needed from the energy policy perspective.
The compatibility of the project with environmental law is assessed by the national authorities, which require public participation of the involved stakeholders. To ensure that citizens are involved in the very early phase of the project planning process, the Infrastructure Regulation introduced a mandatory early public consultation before the project promoter submits the complete file to the permit granting authority.
Die neue Wirtschaftspolitik Frankreichs. Wie bewertet die Kommission derart protektionistische Eingriffe in die Privatwirtschaft? Ebensowenig wie die Kommission Unternehmensentscheidungen, z. If so, how large might potential losses in investments be? In that respect, apart from rules on employee involvement, governed by several EU Directives, corporate restructuring, and in particular, the closure of undertakings is not in itself subject to any EU legal provision. The Commission is not in a situation to anticipate the consequences of the law which will eventually be passed on inward investment or its influence in other countries.
Das Problem begleitet Europa schon seit Jahren: For many years, Europe has been dealing with the problem of animals in Romania, stray dogs in particular, apparently being killed in large numbers on a regular basis. Such measures are sometimes said to be necessary because there is a danger to the people. How has the Commission verified the proper use of these funds, or were they ever actually tied very specifically to this purpose? How does it explain the fact that the situation has clearly deteriorated so dramatically this year that European citizens in all countries feel the need to protest against the practices in Romania?
Regierungskrise in Italien — Vertrauensverlust. In den vergangenen Tagen wurden zahlreiche Medienberichte laut, die die — nun bereits wiederholt stattfindende — Regierungskrise in Italien zum Thema hatten. Sie hat zur Kenntnis genommen, dass beide Kammern des Parlaments der Regierung am 2. Oktober ihr Vertrauen ausgesprochen haben und die Regierungskrise, die Ende September begonnen hatte, damit beendet worden ist. In recent days, there have been numerous media reports on the subject of the — now recurring — governmental crisis in Italy.
What is its assessment of the negative effects of the governmental crisis in Italy, in particular the scale of the loss of confidence on the part of Italian citizens and the world market? The Commission does not comment on domestic political matters. The Commission trusts that the country will maintain its European commitments. Market reactions to tensions in the political sphere were mild, with spreads on year government bond yields increasing only marginally and falling back afterwards. In a broader perspective, for investor and consumer confidence to grow further and to lift domestic demand, political stability is important.
It is not the role of the Commission to comment on speculations of the stability or future changes in the market rating. Wenn nicht, sind dann in naher Zukunft derartige Empfehlungen geplant? Wie bewertet die Kommission die unterschiedlichen Standards bei Gutachten und deren Auswirkungen im Lichte der gegenseitigen justiziellen Anerkennung? Die darin enthaltene Frage Nr.
Die Verordnung EG Nr. The appointment of experts in custody cases operates according to different rules throughout Europe. These different rules — in particular where professional qualifications are concerned — are increasingly resulting in unsatisfactory outcomes.
In a sensitive area such as this, where the consequences can be serious, unscientific and quite simply erroneous expert opinions on a large scale are to be viewed with criticism. Do EU-wide recommendations on quality assurance in relation to expert opinions already exist including in relation to scientific standards and testing procedures? If not, are there any plans for such recommendations in the near future? In particular, does it see problems in connection with cross-border custody disputes in respect of expert opinions of differing quality? To date the Commission has not received information on problems derived from diverging Member State laws on the appointment of experts in custody cases.
As part of this review exercise, the Commission sent a questionnaire to Member States to gather information on the practical operation of the regulation. EU legislation does not govern quality standards of expert opinions or their effects in civil litigation. Other issues such as means of evidence, burden of proof, assessment of evidence and standard of evidence are left to national law.
The courts of the requesting Member State must thus apply national law to assess the evidence delivered by the foreign court, including the quality of expert opinions, and to establish its evidentiary value. The Commission is now collecting input on the impact of this legal diversity on the cross-border taking of evidence, which will be reflected in the evaluation report to be adopted in The Commission will thereafter consider the follow-up action that may be required. These restrictions come after similar customs restrictions were imposed by the Russian Federation on Ukraine and the Republic of Moldova.
These sanctions were condemned as unacceptable pressure by both Parliament, through its resolution on pressure exerted by Russia on Eastern Partnership countries in the context of the upcoming Eastern Partnership Summit in Vilnius , and the Commission. At present, the Russian Federation only upholds the ban on wines from the Republic of Moldova. Talks are taking place between the health services of both countries, but the delays in lifting the restrictions are causing significant losses to producers and exporters from the Republic of Moldova. What measures is the Commission taking to prevent the Russian Federation from using trade bans to put political pressure on Member States and partner countries?
The Commission used this opportunity to express its concerns with regard to politically motivated measures by Russia. In addition, the Commission will continue to work closely with the Member States to address the remaining barriers which affect EU exports to Russia. Ir-rakkomandazzjonijiet qed ikollhom impatt: The Member States agreed in this recommendation to put in place comprehensive strategies to combat ESL by the end of Can the Commission provide the conclusions from its monitoring of the matter, as well as details of these comprehensive strategies? What initiatives does the Commission plan for the coming years in order to achieve this target?
Does the Commission agree that, despite the numerous measures already taken by Member States, progress in reducing ESL rates remains too slow? The Commission monitors and reports on developments in early school leaving ESL including through the Annual Growth Survey and within the Education and Training strategy. The recommendations are having an impact: This improvement mainly reflects progress in some larger countries, but hides negative trends in others. Such work is set to continue. A majority of MS have made progress, but there are still wide disparities.
MS will need to sustain their efforts if the target is to be reached. Uredbe o Jedinstvenom europskom nebu SES razlikuju dva odvojena subjekta: The SES Single European Sky legislation regulates common requirements for the provision of air navigation services, as well as the certification and designation of air navigation service providers ANSPs.
Certificates set out the rights and obligations of ANSPs with particular regard to safety.
Top Free Books
National supervisory authorities NSAs are expected to monitor compliance with the common requirements and with the conditions attached to the certificates. If an NSA finds that the holder of a certificate no longer satisfies the requirements and conditions, it must take appropriate measures while ensuring continuity of service. In order to ensure the proper functioning of the certification scheme, Member States should provide the Commission with all relevant information on the derogations granted by their NSA in the context of their annual reports.
The onus of proving compliance should lie with the ANSPs, for the period of validity of the certificate and for all the services covered. The NSA should examine the suitability of a provider prior to issuing a certificate and should assess the ongoing compliance of the ANSPs it has certified on a yearly basis. As the onus of proving compliance, i.
Secondly, as to the designation, two Member States have designated air traffic services providers ATSPs which appear not to have been certified. As to performance assessment, it was concluded that regarding airspace capacity and efficiency, the overall reported information indicates a rather low level of implementation. Regarding compliance monitoring, the overall reported level of implementation of inspections, surveys and safety audits for the purpose of such monitoring was very low.
The Single European Sky SES regulations distinguish between two separate entities; the Air Navigation Service Providers providing air traffic control and other services and the National Supervisory Authorities overseeing the service providers. As the question notes, recent audits have revealed shortcomings in the way the authorities certify and oversee the service providers and how they ensure the implementation of the SES rules.
Furthermore the implementation of performance targets is still suboptimal in terms of ambition and corrective measures. This is namely due to lack of independence and resources or expertise in the authorities. Independence will also be required in budgetary matters and staff nominations.

Finally the proposal would establish an EU-level network of national authorities under the auspices of the European Aviation Safety Agency to ensure exchanges of best practises, training and pooling of experts. With these measures Commission expects that the authorities will gain the motivation and resources needed and also avoid the current conflicts of interest in their work.
Thus a major performance gap will be closed as the air navigation service providers would be overseen and monitored to the same standards as the airlines already are. Terra dei fuochi, emergenza sversamenti. Nella stessa area sono triplicate le malattie in meno di venti anni con una forte incidenza di tumori, malformazioni feto-neonatali ed epigenetica. Il ministero dell'ambiente italiano per risolvere il problema e per evitare sversamenti futuri di materiali tossici sta per istituire una task-force investigativa e giudiziaria contro le infiltrazioni nelle operazioni.
Ci sono specifici programmi dell'Unione europea che finanziano la bonifica di terreni che hanno subito inquinamenti prolungati nel corso di decenni e, eventualmente, intende utilizzarli? Intende fare parte della task-force del ministero dell'ambiente italiano che punta a individuare adeguati e tempestivi interventi per far fronte al disastro ambientale in Campania?
Nella stessa area sono triplicate le malattie in meno di venti anni con una forte incidenza di tumori, malformazioni feto-neonatali e modificazioni epigenetiche. Il ministero dell'ambiente italiano, per risolvere il problema e per evitare sversamenti futuri di materiali tossici, sta per istituire una task-force investigativa e giudiziaria contro le infiltrazioni nelle operazioni.
I numeri sono molto elevati: Secondo le informazioni fornite alla Commissione, nel novembre , il governo italiano ha nominato un commissario straordinario incaricato di risolvere la questione al fine di prevenire e contrastare lo smaltimento illegale di rifiuti. The Domitian coast, the countryside around Aversa and Orta di Atella, the countryside around Acerra and Nola, the area around Mount Vesuvius and the city of Naples form a vast area that is blighted by bonfires and the uncontrolled dumping of solid urban waste and hazardous and non-hazardous special waste, with serious consequences for health, the environment and safety.
This environmental disaster fits into the wider framework of the first study by the Italian National Institute of Health, according to which the entire area that stretches from Giugliano to Villaricca, up to the Domitian coast, is polluted by illegal landfills and the burying of illegal waste, which is then burned. According to the Italian National Institute of Health, the pollution in the area of the former Resit di Giugliano landfill in Campania, is irreparable: In order to resolve the problem and prevent toxic waste being dumped in the future, the Italian Ministry of the Environment is about to set up a task force to investigate and prosecute infiltration of waste disposal operations.
Are there any specific EU programmes to finance the decontamination of land that has been polluted over decades and, if so, will the Commission use them? Based on the work that the task force will carry out, will the Commission establish specific programmes to finance actions to clean up heavily polluted land? An entire area, including the Domitian coast, the Aversano-Atellano countryside, the Acerrano-Nolano and Mount Vesuvius area and the city of Naples, has been affected by the uncontrolled disposal of solid urban waste and special waste, which is often hazardous, with serious consequences for the health of local people, the environment and safety.
This environmental disaster is part of a broader scenario that was first outlined in a study by the Italian Institute of Health, which found that the entire area from Giugliano to Villaricca, right up to the Domitian coast, is polluted as a result of the fly tipping and landfill of illegal waste that is subsequently burnt. The Italian Ministry for the Environment is about to set up an investigative judicial task force to combat these illegal operations with a view to solving the problem and preventing future toxic waste dumping.
Can it say whether there is any EU funding available to clean up the land that has been subject to prolonged pollution for decades? The figures involved are staggering: This phenomenon is seriously damaging the environment and the landscape pollutants leaking into the ground, air and aquifers with obvious consequences also for human health, as there has been an increase in the incidence of cancer in those municipalities with the most waste Acerra, Aversa, Bacoli, Caivano, Castel Volturno, Giugliano in Campania, Marcianise and Villaricca.
The case is still pending before the Court. The Commission monitors the implementation of this regulation and publishes a report every three years. Wat heeft de Commissie van de premature toetreding van deze landen geleerd, en hoe uit zich dat? Hierin wordt melding gemaakt van een belangrijke les uit vorige uitbreidingen, namelijk het belang om de fundamentele kwesties het eerst aan te pakken: IJsland is nog steeds een kandidaat-lidstaat. De Commissie blijft Turkije en zijn burgers ondersteunen in hun legitieme verwachtingen ten aanzien van verdere hervormingen om de vrijheid van meningsuiting, de persvrijheid, de vrijheid van vergadering en de bescherming van minderheden te versterken.
Vooruitgang in de toetredingsonderhandelingen en vorderingen met de politieke hervormingen in Turkije gaan hand in hand. Iceland, meanwhile, recently withdrew its candidacy for EU membership. What has the Commission learnt from the premature accession of these countries, and how does this manifest itself? The Commission refers the Honourable Member to its EU Enlargement Strategy paper for , which mentions that a key lesson learned from previous enlargements is the importance of addressing the fundamentals first: Iceland is still a candidate country.
The new Government of Iceland decided to put EU accession negotiations on hold. The Commission continues to support Turkey and its citizens in fulfilling their legitimate expectations of further reform to strengthen freedom of expression, freedom of the media, freedom of assembly and protection of minorities.
Progress in the accession negotiations and progress in the political reforms in Turkey are two sides of the same coin. Even today, women are underrepresented in many fields, as can be observed in the fields of science and technology in Europe. However, these initiatives have not yielded the expected results.
What does it believe to be the reasons that this problem has not been addressed effectively? Have any specific studies been commissioned on the topic? How does it plan to tackle gender stereotypes in science and encourage girls to consider careers in sectors such as science, technology and engineering? How well are the different Member States performing in this area, and what conclusions can be drawn? However, as the problem is structural, a critical mass of universities and research institutions needs to be targeted with initiatives aimed at removing barriers that prevent female participation and progression in scientific careers.
It targets girls aged and encourages them to study science. Yes, through econometric analysis of education costs up to tertiary level. Also, a partial equilibrium model could be used to estimate the effects of sub-optimal use of human research capital. The report recommends that Member States implement comprehensive strategies of structural change to overcome gaps in research institutions and programmes.
At present, many goldmining projects are awaiting authorisation, inter alia in Romania, Slovakia and Bulgaria. There is cause for concern in the fact that the investors use the financially cheapest technology — cyanide leaching — rather than any environmentally more benign methods, although it would be advisable to opt for alternative solutions. A very good example is the mining project near Krumovgrad in Bulgaria, in which such cutting-edge technologies are to be used as the integrated mining-waste system. In view of the above, does the Commission know exactly what technology is to be used in the goldmine near Krumovgrad?
Can the Commission list the possible alternatives and ascertain the latest research results in this field? In this light, will the Commission finally propose that mining with cyanide be banned by the European Union? As regards the technique to be applied in the Kumovgrad gold mine the mining company intends to employ conventional crushing, grinding and flotation processing for gold extraction.
As regards alternative techniques such as the use of other lixiviants and other physical methods to separate gold from the ore, each of the alternatives has a number of intrinsic aspects and characteristics which mean that they are currently not considered suitable alternatives for cyanide use in all gold mining operations on an industrial scale. More specifically, does the Commission plan to establish an energy efficiency label at EU level to tackle the energy-intensive nature of information and communication technology ICT , whilst preserving the competitiveness of operators and the purchasing power of households?
How does the Commission intend to raise European public awareness regarding energy saving associated with the use of their smartphone? To identify products that should be assessed under the Ecodesign and the Energy Labelling Framework, the European Commission established Working plans based on scientific studies. Therefore, the Commission does not plan to establish an energy label for mobile phones at this stage. Le Conseil est-il aux ordres de Mme Merkel?
This postponement was obtained thanks to the last-minute change of heart of three major countries that were in support of limiting CO 2 emissions, namely France, the United Kingdom and Poland. Further to that meeting, the Commission is now facilitating discussions between the co-legislators in order to find a solution as soon as possible, which would allow an agreement in first reading.
The Commission does not have a view on how individual Member States, which are responsible for their sovereign decisions, arrived at their position on the proposed legislation. We should not forget that youth employment is highest in this sector. There are so many employment opportunities in the field of tourism that there is a place for everyone, regardless of their level of qualifications.
What action has the Commission taken so far to facilitate young people finding work in tourism? What does it intend to do in the near future in this area? The Youth Employment Initiative , will help finance the provision of this initiatives in the region's worst affected by youth unemployment, thus supporting the implementation of the Youth guarantee. However the recommendation does not target any sector as such. It is up to the Member State to target any specific sector if they want to. Regarding the tourim sector, EURES will be refined to allow for searches to be based on skills as defined by industry.
This innovative approach will concern first jobs in the hospitality sector and subsequently in the cultural, adventure, marine and maritime sectors, as well as skills to meet the needs of tourists with special needs. Most airlines have a free-of-charge online complaints procedure which involves filling in a form. Does the Commission intend to take any action to ensure that airlines do not charge passengers making complaints, particularly where the carrier has failed to comply with contractual terms?
This provision, however, does not apply to passenger transport services. Nevertheless, based on the circumstances of the individual case, failure to provide the consumer with appropriate i. The directive covers misleading actions and omissions. Under the directive, information, which the consumer needs in order to make an informed choice, including the arrangements for complaints handling policy, must be displayed clearly. Member States are responsible for setting up adequate and effective means to combat unfair commercial practices.
However experience has shown a need for improving coordinated enforcement, in particular where the same problem arises in different Member States. Consumers, on the other hand, may seek assistance from the European Consumer Centre Network ECC-net , co-funded by the Commission, for their complaints with a business operator established in another Member State. This Protocol has not been approved by Parliament. In view of the present sensitivity of participation in EU programmes by Israeli entities, in particular those established or active in Israeli settlements in Palestine, does the Commission consider itself entitled to conclude a MoU with Israel in spite of the fact that it is not known whether Parliament will give its assent to the Protocol when the question is finally submitted to it?
The application of the Guidelines will be translated into all agreements on Israel's participation in EU programmes to be put in place as from The Guidelines are not subject to re-negotiation. As negotiations are ongoing, the Commission is not able to comment on specific details. Levering van traangas aan de regering van Bahrein. Sinds vinden er in Bahrein regelmatig confrontaties plaats tussen demonstranten en veiligheidstroepen. Ze is momenteel op zoek naar bedrijven die een offerte kunnen doen voor de benodigde hoeveelheden. Naar aanleiding van de volksopstanden in het Midden-Oosten en Noord-Afrika en de Golfregio volgt COARM nauwlettend de ontwikkelingen in deze gebieden, om nationale vergunningverlenende instanties van de meest nuttige informatie over gevoelige exportbestemmingen, zoals Bahrein, te voorzien.
Het opleggen van beperkende maatregelen tegen individuele Bahreini wordt in de huidige politieke omstandigheden niet als gepast beschouwd. Since , protestors and security forces have clashed regularly in Bahrain. Security forces often use teargas indiscriminately, which has resulted in the deaths of some 39 people by suffocation or being hit on the head by tear gas canisters. It is looking for companies to submit bids to supply the required quantities. Does the Commission agree that shipments of tear gas to Bahrain should be stopped? If not, why not? Does the Commission agree that the promise made by some Member States to closely monitor the granting of licences to export military equipment to Bahrain does not go far enough?
Is the Commission willing to propose and introduce restrictive measures against those individuals in Bahrain who are responsible for ongoing human rights violations in the country, in line with the abovementioned European Parliament resolution? Is the Commission willing to address this issue with South Korea at the highest political level in order to prevent the potential export of tear gas from South Korea to Bahrain?
Following popular uprisings in the Middle East and North Africa MENA and Gulf regions, COARM closely follows developments in those regions, with a view to providing national licensing authorities with the most relevant information regarding sensitive export destinations, including Bahrain. Imposing restrictive measures against Bahraini individuals is not considered appropriate at the current political juncture. These cases involving the waste of public money can no longer give rise to prosecutions.
Was it the Commission or the whistle-blower who was recorded as the information source in the case files? After being notified of the case, what investigative measures did OLAF take in order to shed light on the allegations? Why did OLAF fail to take action when it was first informed about the case in ?
The case in question has both a judicial part, which is the subject of ongoing criminal proceedings in the named courts at national level; and a financial part, which is the subject of an ongoing detailed examination by the Court of Auditors of Greece having been required to do so by the courts in question.
Since the recording of the case in its case management system in , OLAF has regularly explained to the person who brought the matters to its attention that the determination on possible penal responsibility and the related question of possible financial liabilities whether in respect of Greek or EU funds must await the outcome of these two ongoing processes. The Honourable Member will understand that due process has to be respected and that in the light of ongoing judicial proceedings OLAF is under a duty to refrain from commenting further.
Once these processes are completed, OLAF will be in a position to conclude its case and make recommendations or take additional action if deemed appropriate. Several thousand people who are in work have not been paid for months. Taxes and tax hikes are on the increase, houses are being confiscated because of small debts to the tax authority, and power is being cut off for people who have no money to pay. Tens of thousands of families will be without heating.
The following incidents have caused particular resentment and a very broad solidarity movement:. In other words, children are being tried because they are fighting for the self-evident right to education and life. This book is a MUST read for everyone!
