"Madam President, speaking about confiscation and asset recovery in Europe is the same as speaking about our own credibility and reputation. We did the right thing when we confiscated these assets. Now we need caution and an adequate legal framework, bilateral judicial mechanisms and specific Member State judicial sentences. We need transparency and coordination, as asset recovery is a Member State competence. So I welcome the obligation to set up or designate national asset recovery offices. The countries of the Arab Spring need urgent investment in money and flows to solve their extremely hard economic problems and severe, fragile social conditions. Experience shows that recovering assets may take about seven years. Let us not waste time. We must keep the pressure on our governments to accelerate these complex processes. Then we need a better use of the recovered assets, targeting them at the sectors that bring more benefits to the victims of corruption, which are always the poorest and most unprotected social classes."@pt2
