EU ANTI MAFIA COMMITTEE
A new committee of MEPs has been given one year to investigate organised crime, corruption and money laundering in the European Union, and to come up with fresh proposals to tackle the issue.
Sonia Alfano (ALDE, IT) was elected chair of the recently established special committee on organised crime, corruption and money laundering, during its first meeting on Tuesday in Strasbourg. Committee members also elected 4 vice-chairs and nominated Salvatore Iacolino (EPP, IT) as rapporteur.
