European Parliament backing for an EU-wide missing child alert system/ITN

Post by Guest on Thu Jul 10, 2008 11:27 pm

ITN - 1 hour 39 minutes ago
Kate and Gerry McCann have welcomed European Parliament backing for an EU-wide missing child alert system to help prevent child abductions across borders.

(Advertisement)
The parents of Madeleine McCann described as "wonderful news" the fact that a declaration supporting the couple's plea for action has now attracted sufficient MEPs' signatures to become a formal resolution.

It now has backing from at least 393 MEPs - achieving the minimum required support of half the 785 European Parliament members before a resolution is considered for legislation.

And although the resolution has no legal force it now put serious political and moral pressure on the European Commission and EU governments to adopt legally-binding measures to increase the chances of finding missing children.

A joint statement issued by the McCanns said: "This is wonderful news and we would like to thank every single MEP who has signed the declaration.

"By supporting such a European wide structure (a network of national child alert systems), each and every one is helping to make Europe a safer place for children.

"Hopefully this will mean that far fewer families have to suffer the sort of pain we are continuing to go through."

"We now urge the Commission to act swiftly in taking this forward in practical terms."

The McCanns visited MEPs in Brussels in April as part of their campaign to mobilise action following the disappearance of Madeleine during a family holiday in Portugal more than a year ago.

???????????? This is what dragonscrotum posted on the VM board yesterday.


Drachenschatz from Österreich says:Jul 9, 09:52
Daily Mail Headline:-
Brussels throws out McCann's appeal for European missing child alert system.
The announcement was welcomed by her parents.
The McCanns' spokesman Clarence Mitchell said the couple would back any measure which could help to find missing children and reunite families.
He added: 'Whether it is a centralised system or individual national alerts, all Kate and Gerry want to see is better and quicker cooperation between countries.

Not that I take it's word over anyone else's, but could someone please clarify?

It appears according to the ITN News and Sky News that today the McCann's have more than the required amount of MEPs backing their proposal. Yesterday they were approx 40 signings short...but today they have overtaken the minimum required. So it can now be considered for legislation.

Saw your post on ST's Mum21, the posters on TWS are still bowb4u. Wizard backtracking furiously as TW put him in his/her place re the alert system. What's the betting that there won't be many more posts on this subject on TWS? bellylaugh

Here's another link confirming that the Mccanns had 398 MEP's:

Im So Glad

After the reports yesterday that the Alert wasnt going to be taken up, I thought it wouldnt happen. Then the other news stories showing they were getting closer and closer to the required number of MEP's.

Europe will not regret this. It is a positive move and one of many steps on the path to protecting the children of Europe from harm.

I await the actual vote, and then we can all celebrate.

This is good news. clapping
