2 :57:08 Oikeusministeriö EU justice in Helsinki on high level #familyphoto https://t.co/1r5vj81zbf :17: PM Katainen goes back to the roots of EU: Respecting Rule of Law :23:08 Anna-Maja Henriksson There cannot be democracy without Rule of law, says PM Katainen :24:32 Garry Parker by broadening the Eu fundamental rights strategy, do we duplicate or hinder the role of the UN, Commonwealth etc? :30:09 Tuomas Tiihonen PM Katainen: Assessing realization of fundamental rights regularly makes the process less intimidating to member states :34:08 Malin Brännkärr corruption exits in all countries. We need to work together to fight it :37:07 Ketino Minashvili We will do everything to support Member States, that are willing to fight the corruption :38:02 The credibility of the EU is at stake if our common fundamental values are not respected in member States. How can we be credible externally if we don't do our homework first? Page 2

3 :45:08 Eurooppatiedotus -tilaisuus Hkin yliopistolla: korruption vastainen taistelu liittyy vahvasti myös ihmisoikeuspolitiikkaan :46:08 Cecilia Malmström PM Katainen delivers strong speech on the importance of rule of law and European values at Helsinki University :46:08 Malin Brännkärr i diskussion med Frankrikes minister Christiane Taubira under kort paus :52:08 Cecilia Malmström Morten Kjaerum speaks about a fundamental rights strategy, making better use of the tools we have :54:08 Astrid Thors Morten Kjaerum speaks about a fundamental rights strategy, making better use of the tools we have " :56:08 Ketino Minashvili M.Kjaerum: We have enough tools, but we need a joint approach towards a fundamental rights strategy :58:08 Eurooppatiedotus Viisi eurooopalaista oikeusministeriä paneelikeskustelussa :59:57 There seems to be a consensus on good governance and anticorruption, but what are the questions that divide the Council or the EU parliament in regard to rule of law or social justice?

We want to push the commission in the right direction :27: Mutual recognition requires mutual trust. The cornerstone of mutual trust is our commitment to our common values :30: Do all EU member states even know whether they have common values in order to build mutual trust? :34:13 At least as important as discussing how individual judicial instruments function within the EU, is a discussion on how fundamental rights are respected within member States. There are systemic breaches of minority rights, for example of ethnic Roma and LGTB-persons within many member States. Why are these topics not on the agenda when European heads of State meet? Page 4
