Professor Valsamis Mitsilegas gave evidence to the European Parliament Special Committee on Organised Crime, Corruption and Money Laundering at its Hearing on 17 September 2012. Professor Mitsilegas was invited to present to the Committee his report on the strengthening of EU legislation on organised crime, which was commissioned by the European Parliament.
'The European Parliament should lead the way in calling for a detailed evaluation of the implementation of EU legislation on organised crime and ensure that any future legislation in the field is fully compliant with fundamental rights' said Professor Mitsilegas in his evidence to the European Parliament Committee.
The Committee's mandate is to provide specific recommendations on improving EU action to counter organised crime, money laundering and corruption.
