British MEP asked to examine ACTA
David Martin replaces Kader Arif, who quit position because of 'a lack of transparency'.
David Martin, a British MEP from the Socialists and Democrats (S&D) group, has been asked to draw up the European Parliament’s opinion on ACTA, a controversial international anti-counterfeiting agreement.
Martin said in a statement: “I want the Parliament to have a facts-based discussion and not a debate around myths. That is why I want to have an open debate with all concerned.”
