21 November 2013 09:52
Adelina Marini National judicial system can have impact not only on the member state itself but on the entire single market and the EU at large, said Viviane Reding
21 November 2013 10:00

21 November 2013 10:33
Adelina Marini Organised crime is cross border in nature and if member states do not unite in persecuting it, this will give crime advantage, the French jurist added
21 November 2013 10:35
Adelina Marini #EUJustice It's important to establish a European institute for European justice to educate people. Why not situate it in Luxembourg, next to the European Court of Justice, suggested Mr Badinter
21 November 2013 10:43
Adelina Marini This #EUJustice conference seeks an answer to the question 'What role does justice have in the EU', while the British justice minster asks another question 'what role could the EU have in our national justice'. This is how the famous UK legal commentator Joshua Rozenberg summarised the situation
21 November 2013 10:50
Adelina Marini If the legal systems of England and Scotland are so much different how, then, would we find a common denominator among the legal systems of the EU member states
21 November 2013 10:52
Adelina Marini In the UK, whenever we hear about a European scoreboard we immediately think of the music competition Eurovision, added the former UK journalist on the occasion of the Justice Scoreboard the Commission presented last spring
21 November 2013 10:54
Adelina Marini Joshua Rozenberg did not agree with one of the definitions @VivianeRedingEU gave in September of the rule of law, which is that courts should bring justice not only to the black letter, but only in the spirit of the law. According to him, this would create uncertainty
21 November 2013 10:59
Adelina Marini Article 2 of the TEU which lists the European values is too vague. It simply recites the principles on which the EU is founded, said Joshua Rozenberg. Something much more specific is necessary and fortunately we have the European Human Rights Charter, but it's scope is too limited, the legal expert added
21 November 2013 11:06
Adelina Marini #EUJustice People should understand that the rule of law is not a principle but a practise that leads to prosperity, Rozenberg added
21 November 2013 11:08
Adelina Marini After a short break begins the first panel at #EUJustice "Effective justice systems in the EU and the EU Justice Scoreboard"
21 November 2013 11:40
Adelina Marini #EUJustice We are fully convinced that justice contributes to economic growth and plays an important role for the recovery of trust and investment attraction, said Ms Teixeira da Cruz, minister of justice of Portugal
21 November 2013 11:48
Adelina Marini #EUJustice Full autonomy and independence of the judiciary is crucial for our peaceful future. If you want peace, work for justice, concluded her otherwise boring speech the Portuguese minister of justice
21 November 2013 12:00
Adelina Marini #EUJustice conference continues with the panel on the future rule of law mechanism. A key topic for the new member states but also for the process of enlargement
21 November 2013 16:53
Adelina Marini #EUJustice One of the key features of the rule of law is not to concentrate too much power into a single person, said the Irish justice minister, who joked that his portfolio is too large and includes even defence ;)
21 November 2013 16:58
Adelina Marini We all have great legislation tackling racism and hate crimes, but nonetheless they are growing, the Irish minster added
21 November 2013 17:00
Adelina Marini The rule of law mechanism is important for the mutual trust among the member states, said Mr Shatter
21 November 2013 17:03
Adelina Marini #EUJustice The future rule of law mechanism should treat all the member states equally. The data it uses should be objective and accumulated in a transparent way, not based on rumours, the Irish justice minister said
21 November 2013 17:09
Adelina Marini Alan Shatter believes that the European values as listed in Article 2 of TEU are sufficienlty clear and precise and which all member states have agreed to accept
21 November 2013 17:12
Adelina Marini #EUJustice We should focus on all European values in Article 2 of TEU, not only on one, in our case the rule of law, said Rui Tavares, MEP from Portugal (Greens/EFA)
21 November 2013 17:19
Adelina Marini The European Parliament is blocked by a gentleman's agreement not to criticise same party governments, said the Portuguese MEP. This is most clearly visible during debates on the lack of rule of law in some member states when the EPP defends their own governments and the Socialists theirs
21 November 2013 17:23
Adelina Marini It would be good to have an Article2 committee which we could turn to and ask whether double standards are applied, whether enough is done and what measures to be undertaken, added Rui Tavares
21 November 2013 17:26
Adelina Marini Only data is not enough. We need human analisys and interpretation, concluded the Portuguese MEP who is vice chair of the CRIM committee in EP
21 November 2013 17:27
Adelina Marini #EUJustice The rule of law presupposes respect for fundamental rights and freedoms, said Mr Sauve, President of ACA. Freedom of media is also essential part of the rule of law
21 November 2013 17:33
Adelina Marini #EUJustice Not all violations of Article 2 should lead to EU intervention. The principle of subsidiarity should be respected, the French specialist added
21 November 2013 17:37
Adelina Marini In the past 20 years the Venice Commission worked without a precise definition of the rule of law, said the Venice Commission President Gianni Buquicchio
21 November 2013 17:46
Adelina Marini Urgent amendments to legislation are a typical manifestation of a violation of the rule of law, added Mr Buquicchio. Also manifestations are the lack of respect for state institutions, incomplete independence of the judicial institutions, systemic shielding of ordinary legislation from a check of its consistence with the Constitution
21 November 2013 17:50
Adelina Marini Entirely new instruments to observe the respect for the rule of law should not be sought. The Council of Europe already has such instruments, said the Venice Commission president
21 November 2013 17:56
Adelina Marini He paid special attention on the deliberate violation of the rule of law. He advised the European Commission to seek the opinion of the Venice Commission in such cases
21 November 2013 17:57
Adelina Marini #EUJustice The rule of law mechanism should go hand in hand with fundamental rights, said an Amnesty International representative
21 November 2013 18:14
Adelina Marini In the EU people are being killed because they are Jews, gay or Roma. What do we do at EU level to make sure the member states apply Article 2 of the TEU, asked the Irish justice minister

#FAC EU foreign ministers discussed a report by the EU HR for foreign and security policy Federica Mogherini on her visit in #Libya, where the Union re-opened its offices in Tripoli
16 July 2018 15:01
Adelina Marini #FAC #Mogherini on #QMV: We never never in these almost 4 years had a problem with unanimity. I don't exclude in the future this to become a problem but now even on defence we decide with unanimity, even with UK still in. What I can indicate as a problem is the problem of inconsistency. On other issues, yes, indeed
