Adelina Marini
European Commission First Vice President Frans #Timmermans is reporting on the rule of law procedure against #Poland in the civil liberties, justice and home affairs committee of the European Parliament. Stay tuned for live updates
22 March 2017 16:46
Adelina Marini #Timmermans: The Commission believes that there still is a systemic threat to the rule of law in #Poland which has to be removed urgently
22 March 2017 16:47
Adelina Marini #Poland #Timmermans: With huge regret I have to say that the response we received by Poland doesn't alleviate our concerns. Sadly, new concerns have emerged
22 March 2017 16:49
Adelina Marini #Poland #Timmermans: We're concerned of the proposed reform of the Supreme Judicial Council. Any reform must respect the division of powers and the independence of the judiciary
22 March 2017 16:50
Adelina Marini #Poland #Timmermans: The very functioning of the EU single market is endangered if in a single member state the rule of law is not respected
22 March 2017 16:51
Adelina Marini #Poland #Timmermans: I believe it is not too late to change course and avoid more damage
22 March 2017 16:52
Adelina Marini BREAKING! #Timmermans: The tone of the Polish government has hardened. Therefore I think it is time the member states to get involved in the debate. I propose to the Presidency to raise the issue at its best convenience in the General Affairs Council
22 March 2017 16:53
Adelina Marini #Poland #ruleoflaw Birgit Sippel (S&D, Germany): It's evident that we have no powers to do anything. For the future we have to put the respect of the rule of law as a condition for the distribution of the EU funds
22 March 2017 16:59
Adelina Marini #Poland Helga Stevens (ECR, Belgium): The Polish government clearly showed that the Commission recommendations are anti-Constitutional
22 March 2017 17:01
Adelina Marini #Poland Stevens: ECR views Frans Timmermans's comments as a violation of the principles of subsidiarity. All member states must be treated equally. We didn't hear from the Commission when Germany put on trial a comedian on a request by Erdogan
22 March 2017 17:03
Adelina Marini #Poland Sophie in 't Veld (ALDE, The Netherlands): The next step, Mr Commissioner, is to trigger Article 7. Do not avoid your own responsibility
22 March 2017 17:05
Adelina Marini #Poland Malin Bjork (far left, Sweden): Another issue is the trimming of human rights. When citizens rebelled the government responded with authoritarian measures by curtailing the right to gather. I want to also ask what are we going to do with neighbouring Hungary?
22 March 2017 17:08
Adelina Marini Michal Boni (EPP, Poland): We see violations of many of the European values in #Poland, #Hungary and other countries
22 March 2017 17:13
Adelina Marini Marek Jurek (ECR, #Poland): The Commission actions are legally unjustified. You didn't react when recently France drafted a legislation attacking the pro-life circles (against abortion). This is an example of violation of human rights
22 March 2017 17:18
Adelina Marini #Poland Frank Engel (EPP, Luxembourg): I'm always surprised by the conservatives who rather defend the human rights of the non-borns instead of those who are already born. We cannot forever avoid using the only instrument we have - Article 7. What is happening in Poland and in Hungary is a change of the state
22 March 2017 17:21
Adelina Marini #Poland #Timmermans: It's interesting how those who are criticising us on whether we have the legal justification to take action never mention the contents of our criticism. Several constitutional judges have been appointed in violation of the Constitution. It's clear that the government is still refusing to publish the rulings of the Constitutional Tribunal which is their obligation, according to the Polish Constitution
22 March 2017 17:33
Adelina Marini #Poland #Timmermans again reads out Article 2 for those who doubt the Commission's powers to undertake action
22 March 2017 17:34
Adelina Marini #Poland #Timmermans: We need the member states if we want this to function. I'm tempted to trigger Article 7 and be the hero of the day but at this stage I have to do everything possible to convince other players that we have to do everything possible
22 March 2017 17:37
Adelina Marini #Poland #Timmermans: At this stage I'd like us to tread carefully to see to what extent are the member states willing us to move in this debate. The triggering of Article 7 will not help us in the wider context
22 March 2017 17:43
Adelina Marini #Poland #Timmermans: In every country there are problems with the rule of law. No country is above the law. But it is never an excuse that someone else is doing the same

#EUCO #Mercron For the first time in 5 years there will be a joint Franco-German press conference after a European Council meeting. Stay tuned for details
23 June 2017 13:46
Adelina Marini #EUCO #Merkel: If there is no guarantee for the four freedoms then this will have an impact on the future relations between the EU and UK. Then we will have to have a political debate with France and find a solution
23 June 2017 15:37

#EUCO Donald #Tusk: We urge the social media companies to help us fight online radicalisation. The leaders have also agreed to establish the Permanent Structured Cooperation. This is a great step
22 June 2017 17:41
Adelina Marini #EUCO #defense Jean-Claude #Juncker: The Permanent Structured Cooperation is the sleeping princess of the Lisbon Treaty. The princess is now awaking
22 June 2017 17:43

#EUCO #Bulgaria intends to apply to be host of both the EU agencies that are currently in the UK - the European Medicines Agency and the European Banking Authority, said Prime Minister Boyko Borissov ahead of the summer EU summit. On the agenda is the issue of relocation of the two agencies after Brexit. Boyko Borissov said that Bulgaria will propose Sofia and Plovdiv as relocation options. The controversy surrounding this issue is the criteria upon which will be decided where the two agencies will be relocated. The criteria proposed by the Commission were rejected by the member states
