European democracy: common values, rules, and rights

The EPP Group emphasises urgent measures to combat organised crime, through the implementation of the AML-package, enhancing cross-border cooperation, establishing an effective EU AML/CFT Authority, and engaging in international discussions. We remain committed to combating organized crime and safeguarding our economies and citizens. In our crusade against organised crime, we introduced Daphne's Law and advocated for essential procedural protections against SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation) abuses. Our efforts led to the establishment of minimum standards for public participation protection and strong safeguards against abusive court proceedings, while also urging the suspension of social media accounts justifying Putin's war on Ukraine. Additionally, we pressed the European Commission for an effective strategy against hybrid threats and initiated crucial debates on globalization and the digital revolution.
