MEP Papadimoulis urges EU Parliament debate on Paradise Papers
Dimitris Papadimoulis, the Vice President of the European Parliament submitted a formal request, on Tuesday, for an urgent parliamentary debate on Paradise Papers.

His request was sent to Gabi Zimmer, the chair of the confederal group of the European United Left/Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL) in the European Parliament, reading "The European Parliament must debate and adopt a clear position on the effort to fight tax avoidance and tax evasion by the financial and political elite."

Zimmer was also asked to inform participants of the plenary session of  the European Parliament Conference of Presidents which will convene next week, about his request.

The MEP said that these revelations that concern people internationally, bring forth "a major problem with catastrophic repercussions on European economies and European citizens, who are call on to cover the taxation gap that arises.".../IBNA
