Negotiations on a draft resolution on the fight against money laundering were successfully concluded last week.
The draft text, supported by Christian Democrats, Social Democrats, Liberals, Greens and the Left, is based on a Green proposal.
German Greens MEP Sven Giegold told this website: “This draft resolution is a success for the European fight against money laundering and contains many of my long-standing demands.”
“Particularly in times of considerable public expenditure on Corona-related recovery programmes, it is vital that money does not trickle away in criminal structures but benefits the common good. The demands of the European Parliament must become the yardstick for the European Commission’s legislative proposals on combating money laundering in the coming year. This resolution is therefore of great importance for the fight against financial crime in Europe.
