Written Question by Jean-François Jacob:
Brussels confirmed, on Wednesday, 2 March 2016, the urgent grant of EUR 700 million over three years to the countries of the European Union in humanitarian crisis. Aid aimed mainly at Greece, in order to help it to come to the aid of the tens of thousands of migrants now blocked in the country.
While many sectors in Europe are experiencing a major crisis (agriculture in particular), it seems indecent to me to issue such a sum of money even though the main victims are the workers who would like to be granted The aid in question.
What political objective does the Union give to the use of these EUR 700 million? Does the Commission not contravene the principle of the proper use of public funds by looting European taxpayers ' money?
