FLANAGAN
 AGAINST (+) These Council implementing decisions are a follow-up from the so-called Prüm Decision (Council Decision 2008/615/JHA of 23 June 2008 on the stepping up of cross-border cooperation, particularly in combating terrorism and cross-border crime), aiming to ‘step up’ the exchange of different forms of data exchange (DNA, vehicle registration data) in the fight against terrorism.
As GUE/NGL, we have consistently opposed the Prüm decision and its implementing decisions. They are born from the unilateral ‘enforcement’ narrative of always collecting and exchanging more personal data in the so-called ‘fight against terrorism’. Our Group has consistently been asking for years now that the Commission and the Member States provide us with an in-depth analysis and evaluation of the current counter-terrorism instruments, in order to demonstrate their necessity and proportionality as is constitutionally required by the Charter of Fundamental Rights.
I voted against.
Marian
HARKIN
 FOR (+) I approved of this proposal which improves cross-border cooperation with the exchange of Portuguese analysis and classification of patterns observed on fingerprints with the relevant European authorities. The aim is to further efforts at combating terrorism and cross-border crime.

KELLY
 FOR (+) In line with the EPP Group, I voted in favour of this report. This report proposes to authorise Portugal to receive and supply personal data in respect of dactyloscopic data, which would aim to strengthen cross-border cooperation to combat terrorism and crime. Ireland will also be taking part in the adoption of the proposed decision.
