EU public prosecutor: MEPs call for clearer scope, defence rights

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 15 marzo 2014

european parliamentThe powers of the future European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO) should be clearer and the EPPO should make sure that defence rights are properly protected in all its activities, said the European Parliament in a resolution passed on Wednesday.The non-legislative text, passed by 487 votes to 161 with 30 abstentions, sets Parliament’s priorities and red lines for giving its consent to the EPPO proposal when the moment comes.”I hope that as many member states as possible participate in the European Public Prosecutor’s Office to defend the EU’s financial interests”, said rapporteur Salvatore Iacolino (EPP, IT) before the plenary vote.The protection of the EU budget against fraud can be better achieved at EU level, MEPs underline. However, they urge member states to clarify the EU prosecutor’s powers and the relationship between the EPPO and other EU bodies, such as Eurojust and OLAF.The House also points out that the EPPO’s competences should only be extended to offences other than those affecting the EU’s financial interests under three conditions:when the conduct simultaneously constitutes a crime affecting the EU’s financial interests and other offences;
when the offences affecting the EU’s financial interests are predominant; and when the other crimes would be barred from further punishment if they were not prosecuted and brought to judgement together with the offences affecting the EU’s financial interests.
