On 3 May, the European Commission presented a series of proposals on tackling corruption in Europe. It is essential the EU takes the fight against corruption seriously, particularly, in the wake of the Qatargate scandal and the scale of Russian money in Europe exposed following the invasion of Ukraine. The Greens/EFA Group are calling for strengthened legal framework and investigative tools, greater cooperation between competent authorities and an increased role for the European Public Prosecutor’s Office (EPPO).

Daniel Freund MEP, Greens/EFA member of the Civil Liberties Committee and Constitutional Affairs Committee, said: “The EU cannot continue to be the go to getaway spot for criminals, corrupt officials and their dodgy money. That’s why it’s welcomed that the Commission is taking action to crack down on corrupt cash in Europe.

“No obstant això, si la Comissió es pren seriosament en la lluita contra la corrupció, també hauria de fer un ús molt més gran del mecanisme de l'estat de dret i equipar millor la Fiscalia Europea. La Comissió ha de deixar d'arrossegar els peus i crear un òrgan d'ètica de la UE independent per garantir que les institucions de la UE tinguin en ordre les seves cases.

“We need clearer definitions throughout the Union, strengthened cooperation between specialised bodies and better tools for competent authorities to tackle corruption. Definitions and minimum penalties must include politicians. Today’s proposal would finally give the EU the opportunity to sanction corrupt officials from Third countries. It is imperative to make broad use of this tool. “The true test of this package will be whether or not Russian oligarchs will still be able to treat the EU as nothing more than a shopping centre, ski resort and marina for their dirty money.”
