Mr Volodymyr PYLYPENKO, Ukraine, SOC ; Ms Nadezda GERASIMOVA, Russian Federation, EDG ; Mr Tedo JAPARIDZE, Georgia, SOC ; Ms Guguli MAGHRADZE, Georgia, SOC ; Mr Ivan POPESCU, Ukraine, SOC
2013 - Third part-session
In the draft resolution, replace paragraph 4 with the following paragraph:

"The Assembly condemns any abuses in the criminal justice system of the member states holding ex-or acting ministers criminally liable, as they turn the judiciary into the persecutor of political opponents. In such a case there is a danger that the principles of keeping political and criminal responsibility separate can be violated."
