Many of her colleagues speaking prior as I understand were pretty pro FATCA
Additional press release comments from ALDE group(of which Ms In’t Veld is part of)
Only the EU, in a leading role, can ensure genuine international cooperation in this fight“. On FATCA, he concluded: “We cannot accept the direct application of FATCA on EU territory. Rather the EU should take FATCA as an example to develop, by democratic procedure, its own system of tax data sharing rather than importing wholesale the US one, in accordance with our own standards of data protection“.
Note: Sophia In’t Veld is part of the Dutch D66 along with two other MEP’s which in turn is part of a larger group of Alliance for Liberal Democrats in Europe which published the above release. I don’t have the Dutch translation at this point but D66 came out with a much stronger statement in opposition to FATCA.
