  • [01] The European Union is united against capital punishment

    In the context of the International Conference taking place today in Lisbon, the European Commission, jointly with the Presidency of the European Union and the Council of Europe, reaffirms its unreserved opposition to the use of capital punishment under all circumstances.

    [02] La proposition relative aux pensions en vue d'améliorer la mobilité des travailleurs est en bonne voie

    La Commission européenne a adopté aujourd'hui une proposition modifiée visant réduire les entraves la mobilité des travailleurs grâce l'amélioration de l'acquisition et de la préservation des droits pension complémentaire. La proposition accepte la majorité des amendements adoptés par le Parlement européen en juin dernier. Elle insiste sur la fixation de prescriptions minimales en vue d'améliorer l'acquisition des droits pension, sur des droits de préservation plus clairs afin que les pensions des travailleurs mobiles soient traitées équitablement, et sur un meilleur accès des informations utiles et présentées au moment opportun. Son objectif est de faire en sorte que les travailleurs mobiles ne soient pas pénalisés.

    [03] Commission opens in-depth investigation into Thomson's take over of Reuters

    The European Commission has decided to open an in-depth investigation under the EU Merger Regulation into the proposed combination of Thomson of Canada and Reuters of the UK. The Commission’s initial market investigation indicates that the proposed merger would raise serious doubts as regards adverse effects on competition in several markets of the financial information sector. The decision to open an in-depth inquiry does not prejudge the final result of the investigation. The Commission now has 90 working days (until 25 February 2008) to take a final decision on whether the proposed transaction would significantly impede effective competition within the European Economic Area or any substantial part of it.

    [04] Commission approves proposed acquisition of Getronics by KPN

    The European Commission has cleared under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of Dutch company Getronics, an information technology (IT) service provider, by KPN of The Netherlands. After examining the operation, the Commission concluded that the transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area (EEA) or any substantial part of it.

    [05] Cohesion policy : OPEN DAYS go global for first time
