31/01/2020 | 12:19:31 Thank you, Mr President. I would like to start to compliment both rapporteurs Mr Stefan SCHENNACH and Ms Reina de BRUIJN-WEZEMAN on their reports on organ transplant tourism and combating trafficking in human tissues and cells. I indeed hope that the Assembly will be able to recommend today to the member states to sign, ratify, and implement relevant global and Council of Europe conventions and to support proposals made in the report to develop binding legal instruments to tackle these developme... 31/01/2020 | 10:28:29 Thank you very much, Mr President. Thank you very much, rapporteur Mr Frithjof SCHMIDT.

The Monitoring Committee elected me as its rapporteur and I therefore now have the honour to present you a resolution adopted by the Monitoring Committee, as well as an explanatory memorandum on the matter. As always, the Secretariat ... 29/01/2020 | 16:45:54 Yes, sorry to say Mr President, but let me first say that I'm disappointed that if this is the position of the European Conservatives, I'm quite shocked because also the European Conservatives were involved in this process. I never heard that this was the position but Mr Oleksii GONCHARENKO speaks to us on behalf of the group.
