For a stronger European Public Prosecutor's Office!
During today's meeting of the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs, Nathalie Griesbeck called for a stronger European Public Prosecutor's Office in an exchange of views with the European Commission on the creation of the latter, scheduled for the end of 2020.
French MEP Nathalie Griesbeck, member and coordinator for the ALDE group in the LIBE committee, spoke on this subject. She said that: "Obviously, with colleagues, I am delighted with the progress made on this issue, which has been in European intentions for many years. I am also pleased with the organisation of the jury."
She also expressed her wish to extend the role of the European Public Prosecutor's Office: "My question will be direct: many of us, particularly in my parliamentary group, are asking how to envisage extending competences to the fight against organised crime and terrorism. Last year, in the roadmap presented by the President of the European Commission Jean-Juncker, it was announced that a communication would be published on a possible extension of the role of the European Public Prosecutor's Office to the fight against terrorism, which is, I would remind you, one of the main security concerns of public opinion in all Member States. »
Ce matin, j'interroge la #CommissionEuropeenne sur une possible extension des compétences du futur #ParquetEuropeen à la lutte contre le #terrorisme ! Un développement majeur que je soutiens depuis des années ! @EP_Justice @EU_Commission pic.twitter.com/tjVTwLpC03— Nathalie Griesbeck (@Nat_GRIESBECK) September 6, 2018
