press statement

"Today we set an important milestone in the fight against money laundering. This new directive, voted by the Council, is an essential tool to prevent criminal and terrorist organisations to further finance their activities. Thanks to this directive, we provide a clear definition of what constitutes money laundering, the conditions to prosecute, the penalties - including additional sanctions - and the applicable aggravating circumstances. This result shows that 5 Star Movement is considered a credible force in Europe. We are ready to talk with our European partners to change Europe for the better", stated Ignazio Corrao, 5 Star Movement's member in the European Parliament and rapporteur of the directive.
