26/01/2024 | 12:47:37 Thank you. Mr Iulian BULAI rightly started his speech by saying, "We are not perfect, and no state is perfect" He's right. Mr Andrej HUNKO said, "In this exercise that we do of checking on the state of implementation of the Charter of Rights of the Council of Europe, there are no masters, there are no schoolchildren". He is equally right. I would add, "We are not a tribunal. The Council of Europe has an instrument of jurisdiction, which is the European Court of Justice." We are a Commission... 26/01/2024 | 12:05:55 Thank you, Madam President. [said in French] I will speak in Italian. As you know, the Monitoring Committee has a twofold task: that of putting into practice an assessment of the state of application of the commitments made by each country by signing the founding Charter of the Council of Europe, and a periodic follow-up on the same issue with the member countries.

Given the sensitivity of the subject I will speak in Italian. For 100 days the world has been watching with anguish the very serious crisis that hit the Middle East on 7 October. A crisis triggered by Hamas, which on 7 October invaded the Israeli territories bordering the Gaza Strip, exterminating entire families, slaughtering young people attending a concert, ravaging kibbutzim, viciously raping young girls and mothers of families, and kidnapping and deporting... 12/10/2023 | 15:52:11 Mr Claude KERN, who is draftsman of the Monitoring Committee's opinion, has asked me to present the Committee's opinion in his absence. The Monitoring Committee congratulates Ms Lesia VASYLENKO on her work and the report she is submitting to us today. The report outlines the policy needed to ensure that early warning systems and confidence-building measures are fully utilised and improved, to ensure compliance, accountability and conflict prevention in the future. Early warning mechanisms...
