  • [01] La Commission propose de nouvelles mesures renforçant les contrôles sur les virements

    La Commission européenne vient de présenter une proposition de renforcement des contrôles sur les virements qui vise couper les terroristes et autres criminels de leurs sources de financement. En application du règlement proposé, les virements d'argent devraient obligatoirement être accompagnés de renseignements sur l'identité du donneur d'ordre, en particulier son nom, son adresse et son numéro de compte. Grâce aux mesures proposées, l'accès immédiat des autorités répressives pertinentes ces informations serait assuré, ce qui contribuerait faciliter leur travail de détection, d'enquête et de poursuite des activités des terroristes et autres criminels, ainsi que le dépistage de leurs actifs. Cette proposition s'insère dans le cadre plus large du plan d'action de l'UE de lutte contre le terrorisme.

    [02] Italy : Commission takes action over breaches of environmental law

    The European Commission has decided to pursue infringement proceedings against Italy in 17 cases involving breaches of EU environment law. Several environment areas are concerned : waste management, nature protection, environmental impact assessment, air quality, noise, access to environmental information and others. These actions are part of a series of environment-related infringement decisions against several Member States, which the Commission is now announcing. On the positive side, three previously publicised infringement cases have been closed since Italy has taken the necessary measures.

    [03] La Commission autorise le rachat de SIG Simonazzi par Tetra Laval

    La Commission européenne a autorisé, en application du règlement CE sur les concentrations, le projet de rachat de SIG Simonazzi, une entreprise italienne de remplissage et de conditionnement, par Tetra Laval. Les activités des parties dans le domaine du remplissage aseptique et non aseptique se chevauchent dans l'Espace Economique Européen (EEE), mais la Commission est arrivée la conclusion que l'opération n'entraverait pas sensiblement une concurrence effective dans l'EEE ou une partie substantielle de celui-ci.

    [04] Commission approves acquisition of Schneidersöhne Papier by Stora Enso

    The European Commission has cleared under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of Schneidersöhne papier, the German paper merchanting company with sales in various EU Member States, by Stora Enso, the Finnish industrial group active in the production and sale of paper, board, pulp and sawn timber. After examining the operation, the Commission concluded that the transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area or any substantial part of it.

    [05] La Commission apporte une aide humanitaire de €8,5 millions l'Ethiopie et l'Erythrée

    La Commission européenne a adopté deux décisions d'une valeur totale de 8.5 millions d'€ pour aider répondre aux besoins humanitaires en Ethiopie et en Erythrée. Les fonds sont gérés par la Direction générale de l'aide humanitaire de la Commission (ECHO), qui relève de la responsabilité du commissaire Louis Michel.

    [06] Commission allocates €20 million in humanitarian aid to vulnerable populations in Afghanistan and neighbouring countries

    The European Commission has allocated two new decisions with a total of €20 million in humanitarian aid for victims of the Afghanistan crisis and natural hazard in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran. The overarching objective of this funding is to continue assisting the most vulnerable whilst sustaining the return and reintegration process of refugees and internally displaced persons. Funds will be channelled through the European Commission's Humanitarian Aid department (ECHO) under the responsibility of the Commissioner Louis Michel.

    [07] EU Election Observation Mission now deployed in Afghanistan

    An EU Election Observation Mission (EOM) for the 18 September parliamentary elections has now been deployed to Afghanistan. Working under the leadership of Ms Emma Bonino, Member of the European Parliament and its Committee on Foreign Affairs, the EOM is a further contribution by the European Commission to promote peace and democratisation in Afghanistan.

    [08] Internet chat with Louis Michel : the EU at the UN Summit on the Millennium Development Goals (12/09/2005)

    European Commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid, Mr Louis Michel, is going to New York to attend the United Nations Summit on the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs).
