The #LuxLeaks affair was included in the agenda of the mini plenary of the European Parliament. Jean-Claude Juncker will respond to questions by MEPs in the coming minutes
12 November 2014 15:52
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Juncker: I'm not speaking to you in my capacity as former prime minister of Luxembourg but as European Commission president
12 November 2014 15:53
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Juncker: Tax laws have always been respected. There were no illegal practises
12 November 2014 15:54
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Juncker: This is something that was done not only in Luxembourg but practically of all the member states and beyond the EU
12 November 2014 15:55
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Juncker: We have to do everything possible to have a common base of tax receipts
12 November 2014 15:59
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Juncker: I can't understand why a conflict of interest is being sought between the European Commission chief and the investigation. I will not interfere in the decision-making process of the competition commissioner
12 November 2014 16:03
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Juncker's opening statement was booed by MEPs
12 November 2014 16:05
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks Manfred #Weber (EPP): We're not discussing something new that has just popped up. Rich people prefer Belgium, rich Germans prefer Austria. Luxembourg is not an exception
12 November 2014 16:07
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Weber: We in the EPP trust Juncker that he will succeed to resolve this problem for the sake of the European citizens
12 November 2014 16:08
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks Gianni #Pittella (S&D): My first reaction is indignation that multinationals don't pay taxes where they've earned them. This is not a phenomenon that affects only one member state. It's a European phenomenon, a global one
12 November 2014 16:12
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Pittella: #Greece was forced to cut spending while in other parts of Europe mutlinationals avoided to contributed to the coffers
12 November 2014 16:13
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Pittella: The banking licenses should be abbrogated for institutions that allow tax evasion
12 November 2014 16:14
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Pittella: We need to make a list of countries where the multinationals take advantage of the legislation to see which are they and what amounts of money we're talking about
12 November 2014 16:16
Adelina Marini Kay Swinburne (ECR): It's great that Mr Juncker is here but it should have been Ms Vestager that we needed to hear because she leads the investigation. We should await the results of the investigation before jumping to conclusions and to initiate a witch hunt
12 November 2014 16:18
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks Swinburne: We don't need a tax harmonisation but tax competition. We need more transparency and international cooperation at G8 and G20 level. We don't need new legislation or centralisation in the EU
12 November 2014 16:19
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks Guy #Verhofstadt (ALDE) asked where is Nigel #Farage who, he said, was a specialist of offshore accounts on the Isle of Man (applause)
12 November 2014 16:21
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Verhofstadt: We need a special committee on this matter in the European Parliament because it is our task too to look into these practices
12 November 2014 16:23
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks Gabriele #Zimmer (far left): Mr Juncker, you're not a split personality and you cannot divide yourself into a former prime minister or minister of finance and European Commission president
12 November 2014 16:28
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks Philippe Lamberts (Greens/EFA): I'm disgusted. This reminds us that on the top of the ladder the biggest people are taking advantage of the system
12 November 2014 16:32
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks Lamberts: This is a tax war which should be ended through tax harmonisation. The biggest victims of this war are the public finances and the citizens
12 November 2014 16:33
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks Paul Nuttall (EFDD): You blame everyone else but yourself. Do we have a history repeating itself? The former Luxembourg chief of the European Commission Jacques Santer resigned over corruption
12 November 2014 16:36
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks Bruno Gollnisch (non-attached): It's very simple - the multinationals should be simply taxed according to the size of their profits in each member state
12 November 2014 16:38
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Juncker: I believe that everyone agreed that the problem is not only with Luxembourg, so the responsibility is broader
12 November 2014 16:39
Adelina Marini #LuxLeaks #Juncker: Why should I resign? I support an in-depth investigation, including in your countries where there could be problems
12 November 2014 16:45

#EUCO This afternoon, in Brussels, will begin the last EU summit this year. It will be the first that will work on Donald Tusk's Leaders' Agenda (details in the link below). In his agenda two topics are planned for the December European Council - migration and the future of the EMU. Both have already created strong tensions between Tusk and the Commission after the European Council president came up with documents of his own, which are much more reduced than those of the Commission, and reactions in the building across the street were furious. The leaders will mark the launch by 25 member states of PESCO at a special ceremony today. Leaders will be joined by NATO secretary general to discuss EU-NATO cooperation. Leaders are also expected to extend sanctions against Russia after hearing a report by Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron on the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Progress on the Brexit negotiations will be discussed on Friday. This is one of the toxic issues on the agenda. On Friday will take place also the expanded euro area summit, which is open for non-euro countries as well. Stay tuned for details and live updates throughout the day and tomorrow! euinsi.de/0Dcy

Adelina Marini #EUCO Juncker: I'm sure Avramopoulos's words are a misunderstanding and we should not pay so much attention
15 December 2017 14:49
Adelina Marini

7 December 2017 09:19
Adelina Marini #Eurogroup Dijsselbloem: I remember when #Germany as the sick man of Europe but they did significant reforms. I'd tell the Germans that this impact won't last forever
