Speech in the plenary debate on the Panama papers revelations

It is important when we view this scandal to see that it is not mainly a tax scandal, it is a money laundering scandal which has tax consequences. Most of the activities which have been uncovered are already in violation, as far as Europe is concerned, of existing money laundering law which has been in place since 2005. Therefore we have to be serious about implementing existing legislation.
