The EU must not let Bangladesh’s workers down

The EU must not let Bangladesh’s workers down

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the world economy hard. In many countries, the second wave has arrived causing new restrictions. While the EU has a recovery plan, other countries had to mobilize resources to the extent possible for the recovery of their much smaller economies. In particular, governments in young democracies in the developing world have only limited or no access to the capital market, which does not allow for borrowing sufficient money to set up large-scale, permanent rescue programs for their citizens. As a result, lives of millions are impacted. Bangladesh is one of these countries.

POLITICO Brussels Playbook: Whistleblower saga

POLITICO Brussels Playbook: Whistleblower saga

MEPs on the budgetary control committee on Tuesday urged the EU’s Committee of the Regions (CoR) to finally engage at the highest level to settle the 20-year-old case of Robert McCoy, a former internal auditor who told Parliament he has been severely harassed after he blew the whistle on “fraud and embezzlement” at the EU body (backstory from 2015 here). “When I look at this case, it reminds me of the American film ‘Groundhog Day’ where the protagonist becomes trapped in a time loop,” said Czech MEP Tomáš Zdechovský from the EPP, alluding to a years-long legal and institutional battle that followed McCoy’s accusations and never led to closure on the case.

The EU’s €140M ‘zombie committee’ faces pressure to reform

The EU’s €140M ‘zombie committee’ faces pressure to reform

It costs upwards of €140 million a year to run, produces views on EU laws that few policymakers actually read, and has failed to deal with claims of “psychological harassment” by one of its senior members. “Very few lawmakers are reading the opinions of this committee. The impact is close to zero,” said Tomáš Zdechovský, a European People’s Party MEP. “It’s a zombie committee that lost its purpose but still lives on.”

My story

I have always been interested in politics. That is why I decided in 2006 to join KDU-ČSL, Christian and Democratic Union – Czechoslovak People\'s Party. Although I ran successful business dealing with crisis management, I realized that if I really wanted to change something, I had to be a firm part of it. Therefore, in 2014, I ran for the European Parliament as number three on the list and I succeeded. I became a Member of the European Parliament. In 2019, thanks to your support, I made it again. This is why I can still be MEP to protect your interests.
