Pittella: "Katainen proposes to dictate to EU member states - we have to stop him"

European Commissioner for economic and monetary affairs Jyrki Katainen

European Commissioner for economic and monetary affairs Jyrki Katainen is proposing to dictate to member states, threatening to impose sanctions should they refuse to implement financial reforms imposed by Brussels.
 
S&D president Gianni Pittella said:
 
"I urge president Juncker to reject this diabolical plan. It is not just illegal, it is also politically unacceptable. I want to say openly: this plan could be the end of the Juncker's Commission. President Juncker should stop Katainen before he causes irreversible damage."
