“The European Parliament has always fought for an independent selection panel for appointing European Prosecutors, being well aware of existing weaknesses regarding the rule of law in certain member states. By disregarding the panel, national governments are undermining the credibility and the independence of the European Public Prosecutor’s Office,” said Monika Hohlmeier MEP, chairwoman of the Budgetary Control Committee of the European Parliament (EP), calling on member states to make transparent the reasons for disregarding the recommendations by the independent selection panel and instead following the preferences expressed by the national governments.

“European Prosecutors will have a significant impact on investigations to be conducted in their home countries. Therefore, it is critical that they are selected by an independent panel – they cannot owe their appointment to the national government! I am astonished that López Aguilar, the Chairman of the EP’s Civil Liberties Committee, supports the decision of the Member States despite the impressive call by renowned international professors of law sounding the alarm about the independence of European prosecutors,” said Hohlmeier.

A Fiscalía Europea será a encargada de investigar e xulgar aos autores de delitos contra o orzamento da UE e debería constituírse a finais deste ano. En xullo, o Consello nomeou aos 22 fiscais europeos dos estados membros participantes que forman o equipo en torno á fiscal xefa europea Laura Kövesi (retratado). En canto aos candidatos nomeados por Bélxica, Bulgaria e Portugal, o Consello desatendeu as recomendacións do panel de selección europeo e, en cambio, seguiu as preferencias expresadas polos gobernos nacionais sen achegar ningunha razón nin explicación.
