The S&D Group has ensured that the Panama Papers are on the European Parliament's agenda for next week in Strasbourg.

S&D Group President Gianni Pittella said:

"Given the seriousness of the Panama scandal, the S&D Group has ensured that an extraordinary plenary discussion will take place on the subject next week in Strasbourg. Along with other political groups, we will work out the best possible way for the Parliament to tackle this issue, including the possible creation of an inquiry committee, amongst other options.

"The scale of the leak shows that the EU must get serious and finally take real action to wipe out tax evasion and tax avoidance in Europe."
