Highlights

Blocking terrorist content online. A legislative proposal that would oblige internet provider to remove terrorist content or disable access to it within one hour after receiving an order from authorities will be up for a vote by the Civil Liberties Committee. The draft bill includes penalties of up to 4% of providers' global turnover on Thursday.

Hungary/Rule of Law. Civil Liberties Committee MEPs will assess the rule of law situation in Hungary, with Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans and the Romanian Presidency, as well as the progress made by the Council in examining Parliament's request to determine, in accordance with Treaty Article 7, whether Hungary is at risk of breaching the EU's founding values on Thursday.

Migration/NGOs in the Mediterranean. 2018 Sakharov Prize finalist NGOs, which carried out search and rescue operations in the Mediterranean that are now being prevented from operating, will discuss the topic with MEPs from the Civil Liberties and Foreign Affairs committees and the Human Rights subcommittee on Monday.
