Improving internal security while respecting fundamental rights, says the Civil Liberties Committee

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 14 aprile 2012

Fundamental rights must be respected while guaranteeing Europe’s internal security, says the Civil Liberties Committee in a resolution adopted on Thursday. The EU should also ensure sufficient financial resources in the 2014-2020 financial framework to implement its own internal security strategy, stresses the adopted text.
In a separate resolution on the EU approach on criminal law adopted also on Thursday, MEPs underline that further legislation in this field “must fully respect the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality”.
“More internal security for the EU while respecting fundamental rights. With this vote we set up the basis for the creation of a more efficient internal security strategy for the EU, acknowledging European Parliament’s central role as foreseen in the Lisbon Treaty”, explained rapporteur Rita Borsellino (S&D, IT) following the Civil Liberties Committee vote.The resolution is based on a Commission communication of November 2010 which introduces guidelines for a common EU Internal Security Strategy (ISS). The EC document defines five priorities: disrupting international crime networks, preventing terrorism and addressing radicalisation, raising security in cyberspace, strengthening security through border management and improving Europe’s response to crisis and disasters.
All measures taken to implement the ISS should be “in compliance with the Union’s fundamental rights and obligations”, underlines the Civil Liberties Committee. According to the resolution, cooperation with international organizations such as NATO or the OSCE is also essential.In the same line, MEPs stress the importance of ensuring the respect for fundamentals rights in the fight against terrorism to be “a credible actor” in promoting human rights both inside and outside the EU.
The fight against terrorism and organised crime, including mafias, must remain key priorities, with special emphasis on the freezing of funds of suspects of terrorism, say MEPs, urging all Member States to introduce specific legislation guaranteeing adequate protection, support and recognition of victims.Furthermore, the EU must focus on targeted law enforcement and intelligence-driven activities to prevent terrorist attacks. Member States should also develop prevention mechanisms to ensure the early detection of violent radicalisation and threats.
The resolution states that border management is not only a security issue but a key feature in a wider political strategy involving development, asylum and migration policies. In this context, the EU should cooperate closely with its neighbours to facilitate free movement, enhanced solidarity and security at its external borders.Member States are called upon to come up with policies supporting the economic, social and democratic development and promoting human rights in third countries. Also, security must be pursued respecting the achievements of the EU, in particular the right to free movement through internal borders.Cybercrime, corruption and intellectual property rightsMEPs welcome the EC decision to include the fight against cybercrime as one of the ISS priorities and point out that prevention must be in the spotlight. They also call on Member States to ratify the Council of Europe Convention on this matter.The Civil Liberties Committee highlights the need to prioritise the fight against corruption, white collar crime and money laundering. The resolution calls on the Commission and the Council to allocate the appropriate resources considering that corruption remains among the trans-national threats that continue to challenge the internal security of the Union. The resolution was adopted by 47 votes in favour, 2 against and 3 abst
