Event date: 25/06/2018
The Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE)of the European Parliament vote on whether to propose that EU ministers activate the so-called Article 7 mechanism against a member state for the first time, due to a risk of a serious breach of EU values. Article 7 of the EU Treaty provides for a procedure to enforce EU values and can go as far as imposing sanctions, including the suspension of voting rights.
