23/06/2023 | 11:00:19 Can I thank everybody for participating? Well, I think it has been an excellent debate. A number of issues have arisen, one being the definition of transnational repression. All I can say is that the report calls for more work to be done on this. I think for most people, when they are confronted with it, they know that it is transnational repression. I wouldn't be too hung up on the definitions. I'm grateful to my two colleagues from the UK Parliament who are members of the Socialist Group... 23/06/2023 | 10:04:35 ...to serve under your Chairmanship. 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.

Paragraph 13.1.3 of the draft resolution rightly calls on Council of Europe countries to ensure that they have, and I quote, "effective systems for monitoring potential adverse effects of vaccines and independent compensation programmes are in place". Sadly, in respect of Covid-19 vaccines that is not happening. There has been a tendency to cover up the potential adverse effects of those vaccines and few countries have... 23/06/2022 | 10:41:44 Mr President, Like most citizens of the United Kingdom, I've got immense respect and sympathy for Malta and the people of Malta. We in the United Kingdom don't forget that Malta won the George Cross because of the immensely important part it played in the Second World War in helping to defeat Hitler and the Nazis. Therefore it's sad to see the difficulties that Malta has faced, but it's very encouraging to follow two speakers from the Maltese Parliament and to know that there is, in a sense...
