Without press freedom, none of us is free. The #EU cannot take this for granted, as #DaphneCaruanaGalizia and #JanKuciak murders show. Only when those responsible are brought to justice, can #RuleOfLaw & #Democracy be restored #AllforJan #JusticeforDaphne #WorldPressFreedomDay
@EU_Commission @EU_Justice @TimmermansEU 4/4 The @Europarl_EN already made its choice, it adopted my proposal for a comprehensive #ruleoflaw monitoring mechanism already in 2016. It would independently monitor all member states, every year. It can start as from today, what are you waiting for @EU_Commission?
@EU_Commission @EU_Justice @TimmermansEU 2/4 Some EU governments are dismantling the #ruleoflaw and so I welcome the infringements launched today. But we need to move from ad hoc action to structural monitoring now. Not another round of debates on "potential avenues for future action". When they go low, we go slow?
We finally need a comprehensive #ruleoflaw mechanism in the EU, the 2016 @Europarl_EN Democracy, Rule of Law & Fundamental Rights Pact. We will only support Commission president candidates that endorse this fully, will @TimmermansEU and @ManfredWeber commit to this?
Many proposals these days on #EU #RuleOfLaw. 🇧🇪 proposal for @EUCouncil peer review & @ManfredWeber proposal for a panel of judges. @Europarl_EN adopted in 2016 the Democracy, Rule of Law, Fundamental Rights Pact (Manfred voted in favour), still the real deal 👇
In light of the worsening #RuleOfLaw #HumanRights situation, we need EU support for litigation more than ever. That’s why I sent a letter @EU_Commission @VeraJourova about the litigation fund I got included in the #EUBudget but which is still not set up. It’s time to act.
