24/06/2021 | 16:48:32 Many congratulations to our rapporteur Mr Momodou Malcolm JALLOW, on what is an excellent report. But I do want to echo something he made very clear, that his call is not simply for support, it is for action, and we need action. We need action in countries like my own, where yesterday, we saw a prison officer convicted of manslaughter when he kicked to death and tasered to a reasonable degree a man called Dalian Atkinson, a former professional footballer, who played at the highest levels of... 23/06/2021 | 10:35:17 Mr President, I'm also delighted to be able to take part in this short debate, because it is so important as my friend Mr Kimmo KILJUNEN has just said, the place for opposition politicians is in the Belarusian Parliament. But in fact things go a little deeper than that.  We know that the world believes that Mr Lukashenko is not the president of Belarus. He did not win the election last August; that was almost certainly won by Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya. But of course it isn't just the... 22/06/2021 | 10:18:43 Joining the congratulations to our rapporteurs for what I think is a generally worthwhile incredible report.

Let me give my thanks first of all to Mr Jacques MAIRE for what is an excellent technical report. It lays out the legal position in a very clinical and very sensible fashion. I hope our colleagues from the Russian Federation will look very carefully at this report. This isn't an anti-Russian report. In actual fact it's pro-Russian. It's pro- a particular Russian, which is Mr Alexei Navalny. But it's actually about the way Russia operates as, one would hope, a country that... 20/04/2021 | 16:09:36 And can I begin by thanking very strongly Mr Georgios KATROUGKALOS for his excellent report and also in a very non-formulaic, a very real way, my appreciation of the work over many years, of Angel GURRÍA, the Secretary-General of the OECD. It is important we do record that Mr GURRÍA, not simply to be formulaic, but because I hope that the culture that you have established at the OECD will continue into the future because that is what you have established but that is what is so important for...
