Written explanations of vote

Enforcement of the Directive 2006/123/EC on services in the internal market, laying down a notification procedure for authorisation schemes and requirements related to services, and amending Directive 2006/123/EC and Regulation (EU) No 1024/2012 on administrative cooperation through the Internal Market Information System (A8-0396/2017 - Sergio Gutiérrez Prieto) FR  
 

Cette proposition permettra de mieux respecter l'obligation de notification établie par la directive sur les services, d'accroître la transparence et de renforcer le dialogue entre les États membres et la Commission et, par conséquent, d'améliorer la mise en œuvre de cette directive.
J’estime également que l'approche renforcée des notifications prises par la Commission dans certains cas pourrait entraîner des ingérences vis-à-vis des pouvoirs législatifs nationaux et imposer une charge administrative aux administrations nationales, en particulier aux autorités locales et municipales. À cet égard, nous estimons nécessaire d'apporter un certain nombre d'amendements afin de garantir une procédure de notification améliorée qui réponde aux préoccupations exprimées.

Implementation of the directive on combating the sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children and child pornography (A8-0368/2017 - Anna Maria Corazza Bildt) FR  
 

Les abus sexuels commis sur des enfants, en ligne ou hors ligne, sont interpellants. Il s’agit d’infractions transfrontalières, dont l’élimination exige une coopération transfrontalière. Les réseaux criminels en ligne qui organisent l’abus sexuel d’enfants sont sophistiqués et nos services répressifs rencontrent de nombreuses difficultés dans l’exécution de leur mission. Elle fournit aux États membres des normes minimales claires relatives aux sanctions et aux mesures nécessaires pour prévenir les abus, lutter contre l’impunité et protéger les victimes.
Nous recommandons par ailleurs aux États membres d’aller au-delà de la simple obligation de transposition de la directive, et les encourageons à renforcer leurs capacités en la matière, ainsi qu’à partager leurs bonnes pratiques. On évoque la situation des enfants migrants, en particulier des mineurs non accompagnés, qui sont particulièrement exposés aux abus sexuels, à la traite et à l’exploitation sexuelle, et invite les États membres à prendre des mesures concrètes pour protéger les enfants disparus. On inclut dans son projet de rapport de nouvelles formes d’infractions, notamment la vengeance pornographique et le chantage sexuel, qui sont de plus en plus répandus sur l’internet et touchent de nombreux jeunes, particulièrement des filles, leur portant gravement atteinte et poussant même certaines victimes au suicide.

Deliberations of the Committee on Petitions 2016 (A8-0387/2017 - Notis Marias) FR
