An important aspect of the concept of the acquis communautaire (Article 6, paragraphs 1 and 2, of the Treaty on European Union) is respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, such as the protection of property, which is a fundamental and inalienable right of the individual and is guaranteed by the European Convention on Human Rights. In the case of Greek citizens, this right is being violated.
In view of the above, will the Commission say:
1. Since Member States have an obligation to ensure respect for fundamental rights and the rights of EU citizens, as enshrined in the acquis and the Charter of Fundamental Rights, what steps does the Commission intend to take, as the guardian of the Treaties, with regard to the confiscation of property in Greece?
2. Since EU policies in the field of justice and fundamental rights aim at preserving and further developing the Union as an area of freedom, security and justice, how does the Commission permit dead-end fiscal measures to be taken, bearing in mind that a financial adjustment programme continues to be implemented in Greece?
3. What steps will it take to remedy the situation in Greece so as to ensure social justice?
