12/10/2023 | 19:42:10 Thank you, Mister President. On 29 October Türkiye will be celebrating the centenary of its foundation as a modern democracy with Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. What better way could President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan mark this centenary than by releasing Mr Osman Kavala and thereby helping to reestablish Türkiye's commitment to the rule of law? As others have said, Ms Kavala spoke eloquently, and I thought with incredible restraint, at the meeting of our Committee about her husband's plight after the... 12/10/2023 | 17:41:59 Mister President, this is a really important debate. And displaced people always leads to a tragic situation and we are talking here about 100 000 being displaced in Nagorno-Karabakh and just in the last week 150 000 people or more have been displaced in Gaza. And we know that over the last two or three years perhaps 300 000 people have been forced to leave the Russian Federation and have gone to Armenia.

I don't think there is any doubt about the fact that transnational repression is indeed a growing threat to the rule of law and human rights. This was brought home to us in the United Kingdom with Mr Alexander Litvinenko's case and the Salisbury poisonings. My report, the draft Resolution and the draft Recommendation were adopted unanimously by the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights at its meeting in Cyprus. On Wednesday, Amendment 1 was accepted... 26/04/2023 | 18:45:16 Mister Chairman, This draft resolution and draft recommendation perfectly illustrate the impotence of this organisation. I was disappointed that the rapporteur did not refer in his opening remarks to the case of Mr Osman Kavala. There have only ever been two cases before the European Court of Human Rights which have been the subject of infringement proceedings, under Article 46, Paragraph 4 of the Convention.
