article-2310591-0F08C25400000578-314_634x420On 5 November, the European Parliament’s Legal Affairs Committee (JURI) backed with a large majority (19 votes for, 1 against and 0 abstentions) the European Commission’s proposal for a Directive on the protection of the EU’s financial interests (IP / 12 / 767).

“EU money must not be pocketed by criminals. The logic is simple: If you have a ‘federal budget’ – with money coming from the 28 EU Member States – then you also need federal laws to protect this budget. Let’s be clear: if we, the EU, don’t protect our federal budget, nobody will do it for us,” said Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding. “I applaud the work of Tadeusz Zwiefka in pushing forward this proposal. I am now calling on the rapporteurs in the Civil Liberties Committee, Fernando Lopéz Aguilar and in the Budgetary Control Committee, Ingeborg Grässle, who have been very supportive in this process, to quickly present their report. It is urgent to strengthen the protection of the EU budget against the actions of criminals.”

작년 XNUMX월 유럽 위원회가 제안한 새로운 EU 차원의 규칙은 두 가지 일을 할 것입니다. 첫째, EU 전체에 사기에 대한 공통 정의를 도입하여 EU 예산에 대한 사기가 EU 어디에서나 범죄로 간주되도록 합니다. 둘째, 사기꾼을 저지하기 위해 구금을 포함하여 EU 예산에 대한 사기에 대한 최소 수준의 제재를 설정하십시오.

The opinion of the rapporteur, Member of the European Parliament Tadeusz Zwiefka, on which members of the JURI Committee voted today, is a strong endorsement of the Commission’s approach of using criminal law to fight fraud. It is also an important signal of progress in the institutional procedure of the draft legislation.

The JURI Committee backed the main elements of the Commission’s proposed Directive on the protection of the EU’s financial interests through criminal law, including the proposed minimum sanction of six months of imprisonment for those who defraud the EU budget.

Next steps: Following the JURI Committee’s vote, the lead Committees (the Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee and the Budgetary Control Committee) will vote on the report by rapporteur Tadeusz Zwiefka.

그 후, 유럽의회는 위원회 제안에 대해 본회의(첫 번째 읽기)에서 투표할 것이며, 이는 일반적으로 일부 수정 사항에 따라 제안을 승인하는 것을 의미합니다. 이사회가 적격한 다수에 의해 행동하여 모든 의회 수정안을 승인하면 법률이 채택됩니다.

배경

Protecting the financial interests of the EU means protecting the EU budget, and therefore European taxpayers’ money. Data collected from Member States reveal fraud averaging 500 million euro in each year while the real figure is potentially higher. Putting in place a stronger system for deterring offenders, and investigating and prosecuting offences against the EU budget will better protect taxpayers’ money and make it easier to recover funds. This will save money for taxpayers at a time when budgets everywhere are under pressure.

On 11 July 2012, the European Commission proposed a Directive on the protection of the EU’s financial interests, to fight fraud against the EU budget by means of criminal law and to better safeguard taxpayers’ money. The Directive creates a more harmonised framework for prosecuting and punishing crimes involving the EU budget so that criminals no longer exploit differences between national legal systems. The Directive provides for common definitions of offences against the EU budget and for minimum sanctions, including imprisonment in serious cases, and for a common level playing field for periods within which it is possible to investigate and prosecute offences – the so-called statutes of limitation (IP / 12 / 767).
