"Madam President, I very much welcome this vote to adopt new rules to protect victims of domestic violence, stalking or harassment across the EU. Under this regulation, which will take effect from January 2015, people who were granted civil law protection in one EU country will be fully protected in another on completion of a short form. It will ensure that they are able to move freely across Europe with the same level of protection they have in their home country. This protection will give great reassurance to people whose lives are threatened by violence. It will give them the freedom to travel abroad for holidays or work, or indeed for longer periods without fear. The regulation covers all threats to people’s physical and moral integrity, including threats to dignity, security, personal freedom and sexual integrity. Over 100 000 women across the EU, and including approximately 1 000 in my own country, Ireland, benefit from protection orders in their home country but not in other countries. It is vitally important that victims are supported wherever they are in Europe and that this protection remains in place when people move."@en1
