26/01/2023 | 17:59:31 Thank you, Madam President. First of all, I would like to thank all the colleagues who have spoken and expressed their appreciation for the activity of the Commission and for all the activity of our rapporteurs and our secretariat. I agree with many of the things that have been said, so I will not repeat them. I just want to make a few remarks. First point: I absolutely agree with my colleague Mr Hişyar ÖZSOY. We are today in a phase in which democracies are endangered by autocratic... 26/01/2023 | 17:02:02 Thank you, Madam Chair. You have received the Monitoring Committee's activity report for 2022.

As the rapporteurs have already said, we are not a court but a political institution. Its purpose is to monitor the functioning of democracy, respect for rights and to ensure that all member countries of this Council fully comply with this duty to respect rights and democracy... 11/10/2022 | 10:24:27 Thank you Mr President. I, of course, thank my colleague Mr George PAPANDREOU and agree with his report on behalf of the Socialist Group. We will support it. I would like to start with this consideration. We are facing an atrocious war that we are all following with anguish, in Ukraine, and that war, however, brings us to other wars that have ravaged the continent since the end of World War II. I think of the wars in the Caucasus and I think of the war in the Balkans. What do these wars tell...
