Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 20 ottobre 2017

european parliamentNathalie Griesbeck (ALDE, FR) who is chairing the European Parliament special Committee on counter-Terrorism (TERR), said: “Citizens expect answers and actions on our internal security. We got a clear proof from the latest Eurobarometer poll results published yesterday which show that terrorism is the first challenge to be urgently tackled (58%)”.“We therefore need to be responsible and this new package, which adds to the many measures already adopted and undertaken by the EU, is to be welcomed. Terrorists do not stop at borders, our policies must not stop there either”, Griesbeck concluded.
Civil liberties, Justice and Home affairs Committee Chair Claude Moraes (S&D, UK) said: “We need to significantly reinforce our security throughout the EU while ensuring that all measures taken are in full respect of fundamental rights and the right to data protection. Today’s counter-terrorism package responds to our calls for further concrete measures following recent terrorist attacks. The new actions come at a critical time and will help Member States prevent attacks on crowded areas that we have seen in Barcelona, London, Manchester and Stockholm by protecting public spaces”. “This package will also introduce measures to deprive terrorists of the means to carry out these attacks by making it harder to obtain the materials for home-made explosives, providing technical support for law enforcement and judicial authorities in criminal investigations, and new measures to tackle terrorist financing”, Moraes added.
