About

Il-Kumitat Speċjali dwar il-proċedura ta’ awtorizzazzjoni għall-pestiċidi (PEST) twaqqaf l-aktar minħabba li l-iskandlu riċenti ta’ Monsanto wassal għal numru ta’ mistoqsijiet dwar it-trasparenza u l-affidabilità tal-istudji xjentifiċi użati mill-Awtorità Ewropea tas-Sigurtà fl-Ikel (EFSA). Il-Kumitat se jkollu 30 membru u mandat ta’ 9 xhur. L-iskop tiegħu hu li jiċċekkja l-fallimenti potenzjali fl-evalwar u l-proċedura ta’ awtorizzazzjoni ta’ sustanzi, u jeżamina r-rwol tal-Kummissjoni Ewropea fit-tiġdid tal-liċenzja tal-glyphosate. Il-Grupp tal-PPE kien favur li jitwaqqaf il-kumitat, għaliex aħna rridu naċċertaw li l-proċeduri ta’ awtorizzazzjoni jkunu skrutinizzati. Madanakollu, minkejja li se jieħu sehem fil-ħidma tal-Kumitat PEST, il-Grupp tal-PPE se jkun qed jassigura li l-Parlament ma jimminax il-valur u l-awtorità tal-istituzzjonijiet xjentifiċi. Il-Grupp tal-PPE mhux se jiddiżappunta lill-bdiewa; irridu niprovdulhom ċertezza, għaliex huma jiddependu fuq pestiċidi li jkunu legali, siguri u li tista’ tafdahom.
