Di seguito la diciarazione annessa al verbale del Consiglio che reca l'accordo politico sulla Decisione quadro in materia di Razzismo e Xenofobia.
Si tratta di un testo interessante. Da sottolineare il riferimento/rinvio che la Decisione opera alle definizioni di crimini internazionali come incluse nello Statuto di Roma istitutivo della Corte penale internazionale.

La Dichiarazione

Statement to be inserted in the minutes of the Council at the time of the adoption of the Framework Decision
"On (date) the European Council of Ministers has adopted a Framework Decision on Combating certain forms and expressions of Racism and Xenophobia by means of criminal law. The aim of this Framework Decision is to approximate criminal law provisions and to combat racist and xenophobic offences more effectively by promoting a full and effective judicial cooperation between Member States.
The Framework Decisions deals with such crimes as incitement to hatred and violence and publicly condoning, denying or grossly trivializing crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. The Framework Decision is limited to crimes committed on the grounds of race, colour, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin. It does not cover crimes committed on other grounds e;g; by totalitarian regimes. However, the Council deplores all of these crimes.
The Council invites the Commission to examine and to report to the Council within two years after the entry into force of the Framework Decision, whether an additional instrument is need, to cover publicly condoning, denying or grossly trivializing crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes directed against a group of persons defined by other criteria that race, colour, religion, descent or national or ethnic origin such as social status or political connections.
The Berlin declaration adopted on 25 March 2007 stated that "European integration shows that we have learnt the painful lessons of a history marked by bloody conflict". In that light the Commission will organise a public European hearing on crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes committed by totalitarian regimes as well as those who publicly condone, deny, grossly distort or trivialize them, and emphasizes the need for appropriate redress of injustice and - if appropriate - submit a proposal for a framework decision on these crimes."
