11/04/2019 | 16:41:10 I, too, thank Mr Mart van de VEN for presenting this report, especially given that lately authorities around the European Union have been deeply concerned about the extent of money laundering involving various member States. The Republic of Moldova has felt first-hand the negative consequences of being used in an international money laundering scheme. Over $20 billion was laundered an operation that came to be known simply as “the Russian Laundromat”. It was made possible by the structural... 10/04/2019 | 11:47:46 I thank both rapporteurs for presenting these reports. I will support both reports, but I have several critical remarks to make.

I would like to mention several things about the report’s conclusions. The most important conclusion is the fact that the Moldovan Parliament elections were competitive, free, calm and well organised. It does not mean that everything was perfect. I believe the Republic of Moldova has... 22/01/2019 | 19:04:20 I thank the rapporteurs for their hard work, and for presenting their reports and opinions. There are many good conclusions and justified recommendations. However, while efforts to prevent abusive practices in certain religions should continue, we must remember that freedom of religion is a fundamental right, protected both in the European Convention on Human Rights, the United Nations Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and other prominent human rights declarations. Thus, while we cannot...
