− C4-0572/97 − 97/0916(CNS))

(Consultation procedure)

The European Parliament,

− having regard to the Commission proposal to the Council, COM(97)0528 − 97/0916(CNS) (1),

− having been consulted by the Council pursuant to Article K.6(2) of the Treaty on European Union
(11778/97 − C4-0572/97),

5. Tourism

(a) A4-0049/98

Resolution on the Commission’s conduct in respect of alleged fraud and irregularities in the tourism
sector

The European Parliament,

− having regard to Articles 138c and 206 of the EC Treaty,

− having regard to Rule 148 of its Rules of Procedure,

− having regard to the report of the Committee on Budgetary Control and the opinion of the Committee
on Transport and Tourism (A4-0049/98),

1. Concludes as follows:

(a) Information to Parliament


Ever since worries were first expressed in 1989 concerning possible internal fraud and corruption in
its tourism unit, the Commission has withheld relevant information from Parliament and, judging by
its reports, from the Court of Auditors, provided information only after unjustified delays and, at
times, provided misleading information.
16. 3. 98 EN Official Journal of the European Communities C 80/37

Tuesday 17 February 1998

(b) Measures taken against individuals


The Commission was slow to take disciplinary action against any of the staff concerned, and has still
taken none against the hierarchical superiors responsible for management. Internal investigations
were conducted by bodies answering to the Commission administration. The Commission never of its
own accord informed the relevant judicial authorities of its suspicions concerning possible criminal
activities by its own staff and in some cases delayed the progress of criminal investigations by
refusing to comply with requests for the waiver of official immunity.

(c) Administrative culture


Practices, rules and procedures covering the management of direct expenditure, especially relating to
calls for tender, are lax, inadequate and, in any case, poorly applied. Administrative practices which
were known to be unsatisfactory and irregular were tolerated for a prolonged period by Commission
managers at all levels until they became public knowledge.

(d) Credibility and accountability


The accountability of the Commission to both political and judicial authorities is neither guaranteed
nor enforceable. Parliament’s power of discharge is subverted by its inability to obtain the
information its requires, while the principle of official immunity can be used to frustrate inquiries by
judicial authorities. In these circumstances, the credibility of the European institutions is seriously
undermined and public confidence in them cannot be restored unless accountability is made to
function in practice.

(e) Conduct of the enquiries


The enquiry carried out into events in several Member States was characterized by poor coordination
between national departments. The Commission was unable to ensure coordination and did not
propose the reforms which would allow it to lead such enquiries.

2. Believes it necessary to examine the reasons for which neither the European Parliament nor national
judicial authorities have been able to hold the Commission effectively to account for the actions of its
officials. Furthermore, believes that reforms are necessary to make the Commission a more open and
accountable administration. Bearing in mind the problems outlined above which constitute impediments
to the correct operation of the democratic and judicial accountability of the Commission, proposes an
Interinstitutional Agreement in which the Commission has the same obligations towards the Committee
on Budgetary Control of the European Parliament as it has in the present procedure of a Committee of
Inquiry;

3. Deplores the fact that the protracted inquiries and investigations into the alleged criminal activities
occurring in the Tourism Unit of the Commission had adverse effects on tourism as a whole and on the fate
of Community actions in this sector;

4. (a) Calls for the regular submission by the Commission to Parliament, beginning immediately, of
the following information:
− a list of all current internal investigations involving allegations of fraud and corruption on the part
of officials of the European institutions,
− a list of all special audits carried out by the directorate-general for financial control;
(b) Shall not grant the 1996 discharge until the information specified has been provided in a form
acceptable to Parliament and the Commission has taken steps to ensure that the competent national
judicial authorities are swiftly and automatically informed whenever there is suspicion of fraud,
corruption or any other offence involving officials;

5. Instructs its Committee on Budgetary Control to come forward with proposals to reform its
structures and procedures which take account of the growing importance of its tasks and ensure full and
effective monitoring of the expenditure of the EU budget by the European Parliament;

6. Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Commission, the Council and the Court of
Auditors.

(b) A4-0040/98

Resolution on the Court of Auditors’ Special Report No 3/96 on tourist policy and the promotion of
tourism, together with the Commission’s replies (C4-0050/97)

The European Parliament,

− having regard to the Court of Auditors’ Special Report No 3/96 (1) (C4-0050/97),

− having regard to Articles 188c(4) and 206(1) of the EC Treaty,

− having regard to the report of the Committee on Budgetary Control and the opinion of the Committee
on Transport and Tourism (A4-0040/98),

A. whereas the undoubted importance of tourism in the context of Community policies calls for
management of a standard that ensures the legality and effectiveness of that policy,

B. noting that such management has been lacking over a considerable period, with the result that a long
series of irregularities occurred, in some cases seriously implicating Commission officials, and the
continuation of the policy itself was called into question,

C. whereas the Commission has already taken action systematically to investigate irregularities, but
whereas such action, although an essential prerequisite, is not sufficient to redress the situation,

D. whereas it is surprising that UCLAF was not informed until July 1994,

E. whereas, moreover, there is an urgent and overriding need to identify the management failings which
gave rise to irregularities and compromised the effectiveness of the measures, and to introduce
concrete measures to resolve the current crisis,

F. whereas the failings that have been identified are due to the disorganized system of management,
responsibility for which cannot but be ascribed to particular individuals,

G. whereas, however, this chronic mismanagement was also facilitated by administrative management
mechanisms (or failings), in relation to which it must be possible to take action,

H. whereas the Commission was extremely reluctant to forward the conclusions of the inquiries carried
out by DG XXIII and UCLAF; concerned that such an attitude might appear to justify serious doubts
regarding not only the transparency but also the reliability of the statements made by the Commission
throughout the process of parliamentary scrutiny,

I. whereas direct subsidies constitute a high-risk financial instrument, which was used extensively in the
period on which suspicions of irregularity centre (1990-1993); noting, however, that there has been a
considerable decline in the use of that instrument in the subsequent period,

J. whereas the problematic contracts concluded in 1993 accounted for more than 40% of the tourism
budget available for that year,

K. whereas, further, the shortcomings and irregularities recorded by the Court of Auditors with respect to
1992 had still not been fully eliminated in 1995, which disrupted the implementation of the action plan
in favour of tourism,

L. whereas the selection of contractors must be carried out in accordance with precise criteria which are
consistent with the objectives of the measure and the rules on the admissibility of expenditure;
acknowledging that the Commission has already produced more specific calls for tenders and calls for
proposals, but emphasizing that there are still significant shortcomings with regard to the composition
of selection committees and the procedure followed,

(1) OJ C 17, 16.1.1997, p. 1.


16. 3. 98 EN Official Journal of the European Communities C 80/39

Tuesday 17 February 1998

M. whereas various factors have adversely affected the calibre of staff and, consequently, the quality of
the proposals selected (notably the inadequate number of permanent officials, particularly those
responsible for financial administration; high turn-over; inadequate training); whereas, however, the
setting up of a financial unit within DG XXIII has resulted in enhanced staff specialization,

N. taking the view that the frequency with which powers were sub-delegated to different authorizing
officers added to the general confusion,

O. taking the view that the belated intervention of the financial controller was partly due to the system of
spot checks, which prevented the scale of the problem from being discovered more quickly; noting,
moreover, that the recommendations contained in the financial controller’s audit were followed up to
a limited extent only,

P. emphasizing that ample scope for abuse was created by the vagueness of contracts with regard to
admissible expenditure and contractors’ obligations, and by the widespread use of subcontracts which
were not subject to monitoring,

Q. whereas the task force set up by the Commission has completed its work and divided the cases
involved into those where the rules were applied, those where rules were breached and those where
there is a presumption of overpayment,

R. drawing attention to the difficulties involved in recovering undue payments in those cases in which
overpayment is suspected, because of the absence of supporting documents; noting that the prescribed
period for which such documents must be kept has now elapsed; regarding this as one of the most
serious aspects of the culpable mismanagement that occurred,

S. whereas the criteria for the recovery of undue payments must be examined,

T. noting that previous evaluations of the policy on tourism have had a purely descriptive character, due
to a lack of human resources and the insufficiently clear definition of objectives,

U. whereas tourism policy may take the form of direct measures, but also of measures connected with
other policies which have a bearing on tourism and whereas consequently, coordination is necessary,

1. Underlines the importance of tourism policy and the need to safeguard it by taking rapid remedial
action to identify management failings and adopt the requisite measures;

2. Notes that the Commission has conducted a systematic investigation of the cases involving
irregularities, with a view to restoring sound management and introducing initial measures to remedy the
situation, while regretting the delay in its reaction to the alarm raised by Parliament and the Court of
Auditors;

3. Considers that more radical regulatory and administrative reforms are required, and calls on the
Commission to take the following initiatives at once:

I. ad hoc subsidies
(a) the Commission should abandon this instrument entirely, or at least inform the financial
controller, the Court of Auditors and the discharge authority of its reasons should it resort to that
instrument as an exceptional measure;
(b) the SEM 2000 programme should examine the possibility of prohibiting or restricting the use of
that instrument for all directly funded actions;

II. selection of projects in competition


(a) the impartiality of the selection board should be increased by including outside experts and
officials from other directorates-general concerned;
(b) the selection of bids should be based solely on the information contained in the initial proposal,
and there should be no possibility of providing additional information which might jeopardize the
transparency of the call for tenders;
C 80/40 EN Official Journal of the European Communities 16. 3. 98

Tuesday 17 February 1998

III. staff
the setting up of the financial unit should be accompanied, by means of redeployment within the
establishment plan laid down for the Commission, by an increase in the number of permanent staff
and improved training in financial and monitoring tasks;
IV. delegation of powers
any sub-delegation of tasks by the principal authorizing officer to whom powers have been delegated
(the director-general) should be exceptional and justified, and the scope of such arrangements must be
clearly defined;
V. financial control
(a) random checking must make it possible to identify the sectors at risk; systematic monitoring
should be introduced in such sectors;
(b) any recommendations accompanying the financial controller’s audit should be legally binding
and prompt action must be taken to ascertain whether they have been implemented;
VI. preventing irregularities:
the SEM 2000 programme should lay down guidelines for the introduction of legal instruments to
prevent irregularities arising in the tourism policy, but also in other sectors where direct funding is
involved:
− greater concentration of measures;
− the drawing up of standard contracts containing more precise provisions as to admissible
expenditure and the monitoring of contractors;
− restrictions on subcontracts, which must in any event be subject to monitoring under the terms of
the contract;

4. Notes that the Commission has completed the task of reconstructing the cases and examining their
regularity, but calls on it to:
(a) complete its examination of those cases where documentary evidence is unavailable by means of
on-the-spot checks;
(b) begin and continue systematically recovering undue payments, regardless of considerations of
cost-effectiveness, as the exemplary character of its efforts to redress the situation should override all
purely financial considerations;
5. Considers that the irregularities that occurred in the management of tourism policy cannot be
attributed solely to the general disorder, lack of adequate procedures and disorganized management within
DG XXIII, but that precise individual responsibilities are involved aside from the legal proceedings now
under way, and therefore:
− calls on the Commission to punish those responsible and demand the necessary financial
compensation, at all levels, by means of the disciplinary and financial compensation procedures
provided for under Articles 73 and 76 of the Financial Regulation, if there is no evidence to support
the more serious hypothesis that a criminal offence has occurred;
− reserves the option of delivering its opinion on the question of criminal liability and internal
Commission procedures with regard, inter alia, to the circumstances surrounding the request for the
lifting of immunity prior to the opening of legal proceedings;
6. Calls on the Commission to initiate the necessary disciplinary measures against the officials
responsible, together with recovery measures;

7. Calls on the Commission to produce a more thorough evaluation of measures in the tourism sector,
defining clearly the qualitative and quantitative (physical and financial) objectives in the programmes, the
calls for tender and the contracts, which task should be entrusted to outside experts;

8. Calls on the Commission to devise binding procedures to ensure that direct measures in the field of
tourism are coordinated with the other policies affecting that sector;
9. Calls on the Commission to submit to it, within three months, a progress report on the recovery of
undue payments and on the measures adopted to follow up this resolution; notes that the Commission can
be granted a discharge in respect of the implementation of the 1996 budget only when such a report is
available;

10. Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Commission, the Council and the Group of
personal representatives of the Ministers of Finance responsible for cooperating with the Commission in
the context of the SEM 2000 programme.

6. RTD activities (1997 annual report)

A4-0031/98

Resolution on the 1997 annual report on the research and technological development activities of the
European Union (COM(97)0373 − C4-0435/97)

The European Parliament,

− having regard to the Commission communication ‘Research and technological development activities
of the European Union − 1997 Annual report’ (COM(97)0373 − C4-0435/97),

− having regard to Article 130p of the Treaty establishing the European Community,

− having regard to European Parliament and Council Decision 1110/94/EC concerning the Fourth
Framework Programme of European Community activities in the field of research and technological
development and demonstration (1),

− having regard to the report of the Committee on Research, Technological Development and Energy
(A4-0031/98),

A. whereas all sections of society must innovate in order to deal with the risks that are arising in the
industrialized countries of the European Union, e.g. as regards nuclear energy, genetic engineering or
the alienation resulting from the use of computer technology,

B. whereas both research which serves the general well-being of people and nature, but which is not
necessarily economically profitable for businesses, and basic research must receive public support
and hence also EU funding,

C. whereas research in such areas is particularly significant for the development of socially sustainable
concepts for Europe’s future; whereas a continuous social debate on RTD priorities is therefore
necessary,

D. whereas conclusions drawn from the Fourth Framework Programme as regards organization,
structure and substance should be used as the basis for the Fifth Framework Programme, avoiding
acknowledged mistakes, so as to boost effectiveness as regards the conditions for its implementation
and efficiency as regards its results; whereas the results must be capable of being monitored by
parliamentary bodies,

E. whereas it makes sense and is necessary to evaluate the Community’s RTD activities regularly, as a
basis for preparing subsequent programmes,

F. whereas EU funds for promoting RTD are derived from Member States’ diminishing tax revenues and
should therefore be administered and disbursed with utmost care,

G. whereas EU support for the RTD activities of private-sector firms must serve not to directly increase
those firms’ profits but to boost their competitiveness and, generally, achieve the EU’s objectives of
improving the quality of life,

H. having regard to the great disparities that exist between regions of the European Union in the area of
R&D as regards own contributions, opportunities therefor and the use made of results,

I. whereas SMEs must participate to an appropriate extent in EU-promoted RTD, as they are the most
important source of technological innovation, account for 66% of jobs in the EU and also create most
new jobs,

J. whereas this annual report was not submitted by 31 March 1997, as Parliament had called for in its
resolution of 5 September 1996 on the annual report 1995 on the research and technological
development activities of the European Union (2), but does give an account of the state of play as
regards discussion of the Fifth Framework Programme,

C 80/42 EN Official Journal of the European Communities 16. 3. 98

Tuesday 17 February 1998

K. whereas the 1997 annual report is of only limited value in its present form, as it contains detailed
analyses only of sub-sectors, makes virtually no assessment of the relative significance of various
findings and draws conclusions only on certain points,

L. whereas the 1997 annual report does not contain the external audit reports,

M. whereas implementation of this very extensive and diverse framework programme for research,
comprising several thousand projects, is very complex and calls for new organizational capacities,

1. Welcomes the submission of the 1997 report on the RTD activities of the European Union;

2. Welcomes the incorporation of an account of the state of play regarding preparations for the Fifth
RTD Framework Programme, even though this has resulted in the late submission of the results for 1996;

3. Notes that the report attempts, with some success, to outline the evolution of the Fifth Framework
Programme and major aspects of the Community’s research policy associated with the Fourth Framework
Programme, which is still in progress;

4. Notes that annex I of the report constitutes a sound basis for presenting the activities undertaken by
the EU to promote research in the context of the Fourth Framework Programme and that the
summary-style presentation of certain results assists political evaluation;

5. Notes that the report seeks to provide a statistical analysis of project funding and assess projects in
relation to the aims of maximizing SME participation, increasing collaboration in the EU and ensuring
effective procedures from the initial call for proposals to the signing of contracts;

6. Notes that, in particular, the work of the six task forces set up at considerable expense and with much
publicity has not been reviewed and the experience gained has not been evaluated;

7. Notes, however, that the report still contains gaps which prevent full and proper scrutiny and
assessment by Parliament and so does not fully satisfy the reporting requirements;

8. Notes that account has been taken of the calls made in paragraphs 7 and 8 of its resolution of
5 September 1996 referred to above;

9. Notes that scarcely any account has been taken of the call in paragraph 10 of the resolution for the
links at important points with other EU programmes and the work of the JRC to be examined;

10. Calls on the Commission to indicate clearly in future reports, in the chapter on the relationship
between the EU’s RTD activities and those of the individual Member States, where such activities overlap
and where the strategies and objectives differ;

11. Calls once again on the Commission to develop a system, which is still not included in the current
report, for evaluating the results of all RTD activities promoted or undertaken by the EU and to make this
the basis for future annual reports;

12. Calls on the Commission to use a uniform system in future reports for presenting and evaluating
individual programmes, to be broken down as follows:
(a) activities during the reporting year (including where appropriate the objectives of the programmes
and the areas of activity),
(b) contribution to achieving EU objectives (subdivided as follows: contribution to RTD activities,
contribution to strengthening the scientific and technological bases of industry, including competi-
tiveness, breakdown in percentage terms of those receiving funding and those using the results,
impact of research activity on the labour market, practical significance for the quality of life and of the
environment in the EU and contribution to other areas of Community policy including cohesion),
(c) work programme for the following year;
16. 3. 98 EN Official Journal of the European Communities C 80/43

Tuesday 17 February 1998

13. Calls on the Commission to include in future annual reports a separate chapter assessing the
importance to larger industrial firms of support for RTD in the case of individual programmes (including
interests of the industry concerned and possible knock-on effects);

14. Calls on the Commission in future to go beyond the general statement on staff and administrative
costs contained in the 1997 annual report and to provide more detailed figures for, and a detailed
breakdown of, those items;

15. Calls on the Commission to include in future annual reports a breakdown of the amounts of funding
received by beneficiaries, by Member State and target region, depending on classification;

16. Calls on the Commission to submit future annual reports by 31 March of the year following the year
covered by the report, as provided for by the Treaty;

17. Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council and the Commission.

(a) 10/96 by Mrs Loretta Grego-Burkhardt (German) on behalf of Mr Garruba (Italian) on his

− having regard to the motion for a resolution tabled by Mr Cushnahan on human rights violations in the
United Kingdom and Ireland (B4-0267/97),

− having regard to Rule 148 of its Rules of Procedure,

− having regard to the report of the Committee on Civil Liberties and Internal Affairs and the opinions
of the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs and the Committee on Women’s Rights
(A4-0034/98),

A. whereas respect for human rights is a fundamental principle in respect of which no derogation should
be allowed in the Member States since it is guaranteed by means of democratic, pluralist political
systems with effective parliamentary institutions and independent legal systems,

B. whereas human rights are indivisible and interdependent, and whereas the case law of the European
Court of Human Rights recognizes economic and social rights as fundamental rights pursuant to the
European Convention on Human Rights,

C. noting the relevant resolutions adopted by the Council of Europe and the proposals made by
non-governmental organizations aimed at protecting and respecting human rights,

D. concerned that, in 1996, certain situations have arisen in some of the Member States which, to a
varying degree, may be regarded as being in conflict with respect for human rights,

E. whereas it is incumbent upon the Member States to ensure that the rights of all persons present on the
territory of the European Union are respected and protected, regardless of the ethnic origin, sex,
nationality, religion, sexual orientation, age or disability of those concerned,

1. Insists on the need to ensure full respect for human rights in all the Member States, a move which
will incidentally enhance the European Union’s credibility when it requires that human rights be respected
in its cooperation agreements with third countries;

2. Points out that human rights are the natural rights of each individual and are thus not tied to any
obligations or preconditions;

3. Considers that it has a duty, as a democratically elected Community institution, to ensure that
fundamental rights and freedoms are defended and promoted within the European Union;

Tuesday 17 February 1998

5. Calls on the Member States which have not yet done so to provide in their legislation for the total
abolition of the death penalty, even for exceptional crimes; calls on Member States to sign and ratify the
international texts on the abolition of the death penalty, in particular Protocol No 6 to the European
Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms and Optional Protocol No 2 to
the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights;

6. Proposes that an item entitled ‘Human rights in the European Union’ be systematically entered on
the agenda of the urgent debates in plenary sittings, under the same procedure as human rights outside the
European Union, and that the subjects be selected by the Committee on Civil Liberties and Internal
Affairs;

7. Calls on the governments of the Member States to set up in each country a consultative committee on
human rights involving humanitarian organizations which will be charged with submitting an annual
report on the development of the human rights situation;

8. Reiterates that freedom of thought, conscience and religion and freedom of association constitute
basic rights for Union citizens;

Immigration and right of asylum

9. Deplores the exclusively repressive nature of many of the recommendations, declarations and
resolutions which have been adopted − or are currently being drawn up − at Community level, notably as
regards immigration, the right of asylum, family reunions and the concept of refugee;

10. Condemns the fact that no Member State has yet ratified the International Convention for the
protection of the rights of migrant workers and their families adopted by the UN General Assembly on
18 December 1990; urges the Member States to initiate the signing and ratification procedures;

11. Notes the process of regularizing the position of illegal immigrants under way in certain Member
States; urges all the Member States to follow this example and to regularize the position of illegal
immigrants, in keeping with human rights and the international conventions on this subject;

12. Calls on the Member States to guarantee that, in all cases of applications for regularization by
immigrants rejected at first instance, an appeal has suspensory effect;

13. Demands that immigrants from outside the Community should enjoy the same economic and social
rights and be granted the same civil, cultural and political rights, and notably that those residing for a
period of over five years in a Member State be entitled to vote in local elections in accordance with the
Convention of the Council of Europe; points out that the dignity of the individual is sacrosanct and that
inviolable and inalienable human rights form the basis of any human society and are fundamental to peace
and justice in the world and must apply without restriction to all people on the territory of the European
Union;

14. Demands that the right to live in a family unit be fully recognized, which implies that all persons
residing or living in a Member State should be able to be joined by their families;

15. Calls once again on the Member States to introduce a special procedure commensurate with the age
of the persons concerned to examine the reasons why under-age asylum-seekers have fled their own
countries, to grant them a secure right of residence, to guarantee them care and to make it possible for them
to be reunited with their families, regardless of the recognition of their eligibility for asylum;

16. Acknowledges that the rules governing nationality are a matter for Member States and can be
based, as a matter of principle, both on ‘jus sanguinis’ and ‘jus soli’; reiterates that the exercise of civic
rights should be linked to the acquisition of nationality; calls on Member States to enable third-country
nationals who have secured the right of long-term residence and intend to remain in the EU to acquire
nationality;

17. Considers that the expulsion by certain Member States of non-Community residents who have been
sentenced and have completed their sentences amounts to punishing a person twice for the same crime;
calls on the Member States to eliminate any possibility of this practice;
16. 3. 98 EN Official Journal of the European Communities C 80/47

Tuesday 17 February 1998

18. Criticizes the fact that the reasons for the imprisonment of asylum-seekers often fail to meet
international standards; condemns the deplorable conditions under which asylum-seekers are kept while
awaiting the outcome of their applications; instructs its Committee on Civil Liberties and Internal Affairs
to draw up a specific report on this question and to organize visits to the centres where asylum-seekers are
held; demands that the Member States take immediate measures to improve the food and hygiene situation
of asylum-seekers and to ensure that they are treated humanely;

19. Demands that female asylum-seekers and migrant workers enjoy their own rights, independently of
their marital status; condemns the discrimination suffered by unmarried women and men as regards the
recognition of their rights;

20. Demands that no foreigner who has been diagnosed as suffering from a serious illness, or the
parents or tutors of such a person if he is a minor or dependant, should be expelled or deported;

21. Condemns the persistent violation by the Council of Article 7a of the EC Treaty which provided for
the introduction of freedom of movement for individuals and the abolition of internal borders on
31 December 1992;

22. Calls on the Member States not to impose fresh restrictions on the entry and residence of foreigners
and to establish safeguards in keeping with human rights to ensure that asylum- seekers are fairly treated;

23. Calls on the Member States to honour in full their obligations under the Geneva Convention of
28 July 1951 on the status of refugees and the New York protocol thereto of 21 January 1967; calls on the
Member States to comply to the letter with the principles laid down by the Executive Committee of the
Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees;

24. Deplores the fact that the notion of ‘safe third countries’ does not always guarantee real protection
for asylum seekers who may be sent back to a country in which they have been the victims of human rights
violations or in which they are at risk; calls on the Member States to guarantee that appeals result in the
suspension of the procedure in question;

25. Calls on the Council and the Member States to grant right of access to the asylum procedure to the
victims of persecution carried out against a background of widespread internal violence;

26. Considers that the penalties imposed on carriers of asylum-seekers and the introduction of a visa
requirement for the latter constitute unacceptable barriers for access to the asylum procedure;

27. Condemns the mass deportation of foreigners which is prohibited by the European Convention on
Human Rights;

28. Considers that there should be no recurrence of secret mass deportations and expulsions involving
the prior administration of drugs to those expelled, whether some of the latter are sent back to their
countries of origin in which a state of war prevails or whether they are sent to countries other than their
country of origin without there being any war to justify such a course of action;

29. Is alarmed at the tendency of the Member States to replace the recognition of a genuine refugee
status, in accordance with the Geneva Convention, with a precarious and temporary form of protection,
which varies considerably from one Member State to another; regrets that the harmonized definition of
refugee adopted by the Council excludes persons who are the victims of sexual violence and persons
persecuted in their own country, even if the persecution is not carried out by the state authorities; affirms
that such persons must be able to find protection in the European Union that complies with the
international commitments of the Member States;

30. Considers it necessary to step up the struggle against clandestine immigration and the networks and
traffickers involved and to combat moonlighting; the penalties for this offence should be stringent enough
to act as a deterrent;

31. Draws the attention of the Schengen member states to the judgment of the European Court of
Human Rights concerning Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights and calls on them not
to deport illegal immigrants and refugees back to a state in which they face torture or other inhumane or
degrading treatment, or if there is good reason to believe that the deportees will face such treatment, and
not to conclude agreements on the return of refugees with such states;

32. Calls on the Council, the Commission and the Member States to implement the recommendations
of the Copenhagen Social Summit and to reinforce the policies of cooperation with developing countries
in order to address the structural and cyclical causes of immigration;
C 80/48 EN Official Journal of the European Communities 16. 3. 98

Measures to combat racism and xenophobia

33. Reiterates its condemnation of all forms of racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism, acts of racist
violence and racist discrimination as regards access to employment, vocational training, housing,
schooling, health and access to social services;

34. Is alarmed at the rise in racist and xenophobic ideas in political circles, in public opinion, in society
at large and in undertakings;

35. Welcomes the inclusion of anti-discrimination clauses in the Community instruments and the
decision of 23 July 1996 to designate 1997 ‘European Year against Racism’, but considers that much
remains to be done at national and Community levels to prevent and combat racism;

36. Calls on the Member States to adopt or reinforce anti-racist laws by basing them on the principle
that ‘racism is a crime’ whether it involves acts, declarations or the dissemination of slogans; these laws
should contain penal, civil and administrative measures like those already in force in Austria, Belgium,
France, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom;

37. Recommends that the Member States set up an independent body charged with combating racism,
notably in implementing legislation, as exists in Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Nations and
Sweden, since the situation on the ground is very frequently unsatisfactory, even where the legislative
framework is sound;

38. Calls on the Member States to take measures to combat the expression of racist ideas and racist
behaviour on the part of any authority and to set up training programmes for police and judiciary officials
(understanding and awareness of foreign cultures, the prevention of racist behaviour, education to
promote tolerance) especially for those who deal with immigrants at borders;

39. Insists that information and education campaigns be conducted on a permanent basis, notably in
schools and in the media, to combat racism, to promote tolerance and to make people aware of the positive
contribution made by foreigners to the economy and culture of Europe;

40. Takes the view that authorities should preferably help fight racism and its causes by supporting
initiatives by social organizations, including those formed by groups suffering discrimination, so that
efforts to improve the capacity to combat, and measures to curb, racism and xenophobia are based on input
from different perspectives and spheres of responsibility;

41. Proposes that 21 March be designated European Day for Combating Racism and that practical
initiatives be taken in all Member States and at Community level with the participation of anti-racist
organizations;

42. Calls on the Commission to set up a media prize against racism, to be awarded on 21 March every
year;

43. Condemns the political leaders who stoke the fires of racism and xenophobia and calls on the
political parties to suppress all racist propaganda in their electoral programmes;

44. Instructs its Committee on the Rules of Procedure, the Verification of Credentials and Immunities
to propose that the President be empowered to take disciplinary action in response to racist remarks made
by Members of the European Parliament during its official meetings;

Economic and social rights

45. Calls on the Member States to avoid violations of the European Convention on Human Rights,
notably in the social sphere, and, where the European Court of Human Rights detects violations, to
eliminate them by adapting the relevant national legislation; reiterates the case law of the European Court
of Human Rights which recognizes social and economic rights as fundamental human rights;

46. Considers that economic, social, trade union and cultural rights should be respected and that the
right to work, housing, education, social protection and culture in particular should be recognized as
fundamental rights;
16. 3. 98 EN Official Journal of the European Communities C 80/49

Tuesday 17 February 1998

47. Urges the Council, the Commission and the Court of Justice of the European Communities to
devote special attention, in their own decisions, to the abovementioned Declaration of fundamental rights
and freedoms adopted by the European Parliament on 12 April 1989 concerning, in particular, the
safeguarding of the individual’s social and economic rights, and the legal character of the obligations
imposed on the Member States, ultimately in their own legislation, by social and economic rights, and
taking into account the provisions of international human rights agreements;

48. Deplores the extent of poverty in Europe and the worsening situation as regards unemployment,
precarious employment and inequality, despite the action undertaken to combat poverty at national and
Community level; considers it necessary to avoid any action which could harm activities of private-sector
firms which could create jobs and resources to help them grow;

49. Considers that the process of impoverishment and precarious employment conditions which
increasingly affects young people has structural causes which are directly linked to the functioning of the
economy, the absence of equitable taxation able to promote a redistribution of the available resources and
the absence of social protection;

50. Takes the view that poverty and exclusion are unworthy of a democratic and rich society, and
considers unacceptable the fact that more than 52 million people in the European Union live in poverty;
invites the Council, Commission and the Member States to make the struggle against social exclusion and
poverty a political priority, and with the participation of NGOs concerned develop coherent holistic
policies to combat the phenomena; calls on the Council to adopt the Poverty IV programme without delay;
believes that an increased amount of the EU budget should be devoted to the fight against social exclusion
and to promote inclusion, particularly by supporting pilot projects in the ‘third system’;

51. Considers that, in order to satisfy the fundamental needs of citizens, the economic and social
policies implemented at national and Community levels should seek to boost business competitiveness
and labour market flexibility, both of which help to meet the needs stemming from the globalization of
markets and the worrying increase in unemployment in Europe;

52. Urges the Member States to take decisive action in the following fields: the right to work, the right
to social security, the right to protection against poverty and social exclusion, the right to housing and
other social rights;

53. Points out that in order to combat the spread of poverty and exclusion, it is necessary to foster
individual freedom of enterprise and create new jobs;

54. Advocates the drawing up at Community level of instruments laying down minimum guarantees in
respect of income, social protection, and the right to medical treatment and housing as an essential
prerequisite for ensuring a quality of life consistent with human dignity;

55. Calls on the Member States to comply immediately with the recommendations of the Committee of
Ministers of the Council of Europe, particularly as regards the following areas contained in the European
Social Charter: ‘ban on forced labour’, ‘freedom of association’ and ‘the right to strike’;

56. Reiterates the importance of the findings of the Committee of the Wise chaired by Maria de
Lourdes Pintasilgo, its in-depth analysis and proposals regarding the scope of fundamental rights;

57. Calls on the Member States, in close cooperation with the humanitarian associations to adopt and
implement laws to prevent and combat exclusion concerning in particular access to employment, health,
social benefits, housing, education and justice;

58. Deplores the failure to adopt the programme for combating poverty and reiterates its demand to the
Council that it be rapidly adopted;

59. Condemns those municipal authorities which have banned begging on their territory;

60. Condemns the slavery-like conditions under which maids, often of foreign origin, are kept by their
employers who take advantage of their financial dependence and social vulnerability to refuse to
recognize their rights and to lock them up and abuse them;
C 80/50 EN Official Journal of the European Communities 16. 3. 98

Tuesday 17 February 1998

61. Calls on the Member States to implement a European legal framework to guarantee access to
employment for people with disabilities;

62. Calls on the Member States to respect all the recommendations and conventions of the ILO, and in
particular Convention 111 on non-discrimination as regards labour, Convention 138 on child labour and
Convention 87 on trade union freedom and to implement all the provisions of the Council of Europe’s
revamped social charter;

63. Condemns the numerous violations of trade union freedoms and the rights of trade union delegates
in many Member States and demands that these violations should cease and that trade union freedom be
recognized as a fundamental right in all Member States;

64. Notes the solution which has been found for the Liverpool dockers who had been sacked and
salutes their determination; calls more generally on the United Kingdom Government to take initiatives to
abolish the restrictions on the right to strike;

Equal rights and non-discrimination

65. Welcomes the inclusion in Community instruments of non-discrimination clauses which provide
for a ban on all forms of discrimination;

66. Considers that its above-mentioned resolution of 8 February 1994 on homosexuals has led to
improvements in many Member States and at Community level;

67. Calls on all Member States to recognize equal rights for homosexuals, notably through the
establishment, where they do not already exist, of civil union contracts aimed at eliminating all forms of
discrimination still suffered by homosexuals, in particular as regards tax, inheritance, social rights, etc,
and, through information and education, to help combat the prejudice to which they are subject in society;

68. Calls for the Staff Regulations of officials and other servants of the European Communities to be
amended without delay so as to guarantee non-married partners the same rights as those granted to
spouses;

69. Calls once more on the Austrian Government to abrogate its anti-homosexual laws, and notably the
discriminatory provision regarding the minimum legal age for sexual consent;

70. Is critical of the fact that Council of Europe texts on ethnic groups and minorities (the Framework
Convention and Minority Languages Charter) have still to be ratified by almost all EU Member States and
that Parliament’s call in its resolution of 13 March 1996 embodying (i) Parliament’ s opinion on the
convening of the Intergovernmental Conference, and (ii) an evaluation of the work of the Reflection
Group and a definition of the political priorities of the European Parliament with a view to the
Intergovernmental Conference (1) for active support for linguistic minorities in the EU has not yet been
taken up by the Council, the IGC or the Member States, so that the rights of ethnic and linguistic minorities
living in many Member States remain unprotected or are protected only at regional or national level;

71. Stresses that nobody must be disadvantaged by virtue of belonging to an ethnic or linguistic
minority and that specific support for minorities against assimilation pressures exerted by majority groups
does not violate but, on the contrary, helps uphold the principle of equality;

72. Calls on the Member States to recognize the specific situation of traveller minorities (Sinti and
Roma), to respect their culture, ensure their protection, refrain from all discrimination and combat the
prejudices against them; demands that all municipalities comply with the legal obligation to provide
special centres for traveller population groups and calls on the Member States to ensure that these
obligations are honoured, or to make provision for them in their legislation;

73. Notes that handicapped people continue to suffer discrimination in society at large and at work;
calls on the Member States to adopt legislative measures aimed at improving the daily life of the
handicapped and promoting their employment prospects and their entry into the world of employment;

74. Recalls that the UN Conference on Human Rights in Vienna in 1993 established that women’s
rights are an inalienable, integral and indivisible part of universal human rights.

75. Calls on Member States to implement in full their obligations under the Convention on the
Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and to withdraw any remaining
reservations which are incompatible with the purpose of the Convention; calls on Member States to agree
and ratify the proposed optional protocol to CEDAW, which would give individuals and groups the right
to pursue a complaint under the Convention;

76. Calls on the EU to join the European Convention on Human Rights and to support the resolution
adopted by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopting a further protocol to the
European Convention on Human Rights dealing with women’s rights;

77. Regrets that in their reports on implementation of the Beijing Platform for Action, and in their
periodic reports to the CEDAW committee, Member States see human rights as predominantly an issue for
development cooperation policy, thus giving low priority to violations of women’s rights within the EU;

78. Notes that, despite certain improvements, women still suffer from discrimination and are still not
treated with real equality, notably as regards their salary levels;

79. Calls on the Member States to take adequate measures to promote equality of treatment and
opportunity for women and to ensure their effective and equitable participation in public life and the
decision-taking process in all spheres;

80. Calls on the Member States to promote the principle of democratic parity, since human rights will
be better guaranteed if there is equal participation by men and women in decision-making bodies;

81. Restates its conviction that positive action is essential for putting an end to discriminiation and
allowing women to exercise their economic and social rights to the full;

82. Urges Member States to include persecution based on sex among the criteria for admission to the
EU for those from certain countries seeking asylum; further urges Member States to accord temporary
residence status to women who have been victims of trafficking from a third country prior to a final
decision on whether they should be permitted to stay in the Member State concerned;

83. Deplores the fact that in Ireland the law bans all information or expression of opinion in favour of
the voluntary termination of pregnancy and is alarmed at the militancy of anti-abortionist activists in
France; demands that access to information on the voluntary termination of pregnancy be ensured in all
Member States and the role of associations recognized;

84. Calls on the Member States to ensure that all women in trouble are offered material, psychological
and moral support enabling them to opt for life;

85. Calls on the Member States to combat all sexism in the media, advertising and in school textbooks,
by putting an end to the inequality of treatment between men and women and giving women positive role
models;

86. Is concerned at the spread of trafficking in women in the European Union, notably from the states
of Central and Eastern Europe, and wishes that the agreements concluded at European level be reinforced
to combat this practice more effectively;

87. Calls on the Commission and the Member States to support the proposal to designate 1999 as the
European Year Against Violence to Women in order to highlight the prevalence of this most fundamental
violation of women’s rights which cuts across all social strata and involves incalculable costs not only to
the women affected but to society as a whole;
C 80/52 EN Official Journal of the European Communities 16. 3. 98

Tuesday 17 February 1998

88. Condemns outright the practice of female genital mutilation and calls on Member States to support
information campaigns on the subject, where possible in co-operation with the countries concerned, to
cultivate greater awareness among members of these ethnic communities with a view to breaking down
the existing traditions, and to take every step both to render punishable and to prosecute those who carry
out the operation and to protect the girls and women concerned, whether they are forced to undergo the
operation in a Member State or sent to a third country;

89. Urges the Member States to revise any existing rules which permit forced sterilization, and calls for
a moratorium on forced sterilization until such a revision has been completed;

90. Calls on the Member States and the Council to lay down measures to protect prostitutes and shield
them from all exploitation and violence and to encourage their reintegration into society and working life;

91. Confirms that children’s rights are human rights and calls on the institutions of the European Union
and of the Member States to work to achieve the objectives of the UN Convention on the Rights of the
Child and to make them accessible to a wide audience;

92. Deplores the fact that, despite the adoption of a specific Directive on this matter, children continue
to work in certain Member States; demands that the ban on child labour be respected forthwith throughout
the European Union;

93. Demands that non-European pupils on school trips in another Member State should enjoy complete
freedom of movement in all Member States;

94. Welcomes the measures taken − or currently being drawn up − at national and Community level
aimed at combating pornography and prostitution involving children and trafficking in children;

95. Calls on the Member States to take legislative measures to enable them to prosecute on their
territory the perpetrators of sexual abuse against children committed in third countries;

96. Proposes that 20 November each year be designated European Day for Children’s Rights in order to
alert public opinion to this matter and to allow children to express themselves and give their opinions on
how their rights are being respected;

97. Notes once again that a child’s right to grow up in a secure environment could be put at risk if the
right to divorce did not exist or were bound up with rules, e.g. on the apportionment of blame, which could
adversely affect the child’s relationship with one of its parents;

98. Calls once again on the Member States to strengthen the incentives which help to prevent and
eliminate the serious neglect of children;

99. Calls on all Member States to criminalize all physical violence against children and to ensure that
such legislation is, where necessary, complied with;

The situation of prisoners and persons under arrest

100. Calls for the banning and punishment of all forms of inhuman or degrading treatment and torture;
is still concerned that detention continues to be regarded exclusively as a form of punishment and not as a
means of re-adapting and rehabilitating prisoners with a view to their subsequent reintegration into
society, as laid down in international human rights conventions and virtually all Member States’
constitutions;

101. Expresses its surprise at the fact that members of the security forces responsible for such ill
treatment which is often racially motivated receive very light sentences or see the prosecution cases
against them abandoned; urges the Member States to apply legal and procedural measures more rigorously
in order to ensure that those responsible for torture or inhuman or degrading treatment are duly punished;

102. Calls on the Member States to consider impunity tantamount to protecting the perpetrators and
such ill-treatment a grave criminal offence whose perpetrators must be severely punished and to take
adequate measures in order effectively to prevent the use of violence against remand prisoners and
prisoners who have been sentenced;
16. 3. 98 EN Official Journal of the European Communities C 80/53

Tuesday 17 February 1998

103. Is critical generally of the excessively long periods for which detainees are held on remand and
condemns the discrimination suffered by those who are not nationals of a Member State and are detained
on remand for longer periods;

104. Is alarmed at the deterioration of the conditions of life in prisons, notably owing to overcrowding;
calls on the Member States to ensure that human dignity is respected in prison, as regards the material
conditions, medical care, home leave, access to work and cultural or sporting activities and the strict
compliance with the prison rules adopted by the Council of Europe; points out that one of the objectives of
penitentiary law is to rehabilitate those who have been deprived of their freedom with a view to
reintegrating them into society, and therefore urges the Member States to devote maximum attention to
living conditions in prisons and to respect for the dignity and the fundamental rights of prisoners;

105. Calls on the Member States to set up family visit units in prisons and for these to be exempt from
surveillance, so that families can maintain links with imprisoned family members, in decent conditions;
calls on the Member States to improve access to health care and education in prisons and to develop sports
facilities; calls for more flexible arrangements to be introduced for imprisoned mothers, for everything
possible to be done to ensure that children who grow up in prison with a parent who is an inmate suffer as
little as possible as a result;

106. Calls on the Member States wherever possible, but subject to the need to protect society from
dangerous criminals, to apply alternatives to imprisonment, in particular by introducing administrative
and/or financial penalties for minor offences, encouraging alternative punishments such as community
service, establishing open or semi-open prisons and granting conditional discharge;

107. Desires that special attention be devoted to certain, particularly vulnerable groups of prisoners,
namely women, immigrants, ethnic minorities and homosexuals; urges the Member States, pursuant to the
principle of rehabilitating prisoners, to take the necessary action to ensure that people held in prison are
treated as individuals, with due regard to each one’s particular circumstances;

108. Calls on the Member States to give the rehabilitation and education of minors who offend
precedence over their imprisonment, to adapt prison sentences to the needs of those minors and never to
impose normal prison sentences on children under 16 years of age;

109. Calls for sex offenders to be held in preventive detention if the danger that they will repeat their
crimes cannot be entirely ruled out and all medical and psychological prognoses are negative;

110. Is indignant at the practice of tying up or handcuffing prisoners during gynaecological


examinations or after giving birth, as has occurred in an English prison;

111. Calls on the Member States to provide adequate training for members of the police and prison
services, in particular specific training as regards drug abuse and AIDS;

Freedom of information, expression and creation

112. Reaffirms the right of all persons to freedom of expression, of which freedom of the press and the
right to information are integral parts;

113. Calls on the Commission systematically to take into account the impact of Community policies on
culture;

114. Calls on the Member States to recognize and promote regional languages and cultures, notably in
teaching and in the media, so as to respect the Convention of the Council of Europe;

115. Condemns all forms of cultural censorship and any attack on freedom of expression and creation,
although such freedom must not become a pretext for inciting hatred in any form;

116. Calls on the Member States which have not yet done so to sign and ratify the European Charter on
regional or minority languages;
C 80/54 EN Official Journal of the European Communities 16. 3. 98

Tuesday 17 February 1998

117. Condemns the attempts by some leaders of local authorities who, for ideological reasons or
reasons of political allegiance, prevent cultural events taking place in which artists who do not share their
political views are to take part or remove from public libraries certain newspapers, magazines or works
which are considered not to be in keeping with their political convictions;

118. Calls on the Member States and the Council to consider as an offence any incitement to
xenophobic hatred and any expression of racist or revisionist opinion disseminated through the traditional
media, publishing or the Internet;

119. Calls on the Council, the Commission and the Member States to improve the access of journalists
and the public to information concerning national and Community administrations in order to guarantee
freedom of expression and the right to information;

120. Calls for rules to be adopted which are common to the Commission, the Council and Parliament
and guarantee the public’s and journalists’ right of access to Community documents;

121. Calls on the Commission rapidly to submit to the European Parliament a Directive on combating
media concentration in order to guarantee pluralism of information, as advocated by the high-level group
of experts set up as part of the Information Society;

Political rights

122. Regrets that Belgium and France have not yet transposed Directive 94/80/EC laying down detailed
arrangements for the exercise of the right to vote and to stand as a candidate in municipal elections by
citizens of the Union residing in a Member State of which they are not nationals (1) and therefore calls on
them to amend their legislation to comply with the Directive;

Individual rights

123. Reminds Member States of their obligation to respect the right of defence during trials and to
respect the rights of persons who have been arrested or imprisoned, in accordance with the European
Convention on Human Rights;

124. Points out that the European Court of Human Rights has on several occasions ordered Member
States to restore citizens’ rights violated by national judicial systems, in particular because of the
protracted nature of trials and the failure to respect defendants’ rights; calls, therefore, on the Member
States to provide for appropriate measures to prevent dysfunctions of their judicial systems;

125. Notes the measures taken by Greece to free prisoners of conscience and to adopt legislation which
recognizes the right of conscientious objection and encourages it to continue its efforts in that direction;

126. Calls on Greece, therefore,


(a) to release imprisoned conscientious objectors immediately and treat them in accordance with the new
law, which provides for alternative civilian service,
(b) to exempt those who refused military service prior to the entry into force of that law from civilian
service, either completely or partly, depending on individual circumstances, as many of them have
already had their freedom restricted,
(c) to grant a full amnesty to all those who refused military service in the past, and
(d) to grant all conscientious objectors full civil rights, in particular by giving them the right to a passport,
allowing them, like all other European citizens, to move freely about the EU, and making acceptable
provisions for Greek conscientious objectors living outside Greece;

127. Calls therefore on all the Member States to respect the recommendation of the Council of Europe
and Resolution 1993/84 of the UN Commission on Human Rights, by fully recognizing conscientious
objection and the option of an alternative non-military service; all persons presently disadvantaged by the
judicial system should be amnestied and rehabilitated with full civil rights;

128. Condemns the various forms of maltreatment still suffered by conscripts in European armies;
suggests that the national parliaments concerned should start an inquiry to examine the extent and
seriousness of such abuses;

129. Reiterates its condemnation of the reference to religion on identity cards, since this is a violation
of the private lives of individuals and may result in discrimination;

130. Is alarmed at the link up of data processing systems which do not always respect the rules
governing the protection of private life and personal data;

131. Is alarmed at possible misuses of the Schengen Information System database which tends to
criminalize foreigners; calls for such databases to be required to respect the right to privacy and for
information which does not comply with the principle of equal treatment and non-discrimination to be
excluded from them;

132. Calls on all Member States to establish national centres for the protection of personal data;

133. Condemns the practice of illegal phone-tapping, and calls on the Member States to adopt
legislation which respects the international conventions on this matter and ensures that a balance is struck
between the need to combat crime and the need to protect fundamental rights and freedoms;

134. Calls on the Member States to take measures, while respecting the principles of constitutional law,
to combat the violation of individual rights by certain sects which should be refused the status of religious
or cultural organization under which they enjoy tax advantages and a certain degree of legal protection;

135. Notes the scale and gravity of attacks on the rule of law, democracy and human rights by
organized crime (particularly terrorism), owing above all to its links with the world of politics, the
economy and public administration, but also owing to the scale of fraud and tax evasion;

136. Condemns strongly and unreservedly, therefore, all acts of violence and threats of violence by
terrorists and calls for such acts to be punished mercilessly throughout the European Union using all
constitutional means;

137. Condemns the murders, mutilations, acts of violence, kidnappings and extortion perpetrated by
terrorist groups and urges the Member States to continue their close cooperation in the fight against
terrorism and, accordingly, to continue strengthening police and legal cooperation at European level;

138. Calls, in connection with the punishment of offences, for more emphasis to be placed, alongside
the rehabilitation of offenders, on atonement for the crimes committed and the protection of citizens
against any repeat of the offence;

139. Calls on the Member States to review the traditional list of penalties, such as prison sentences,
fines or disqualification from driving, with a view to determining whether it can be expanded to
incorporate modern measures which also have a specific and general preventive effect;

*

140. Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council, the Commission and the
governments and parliaments of the Member States.
