25/01/2023 | 13:06:33 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) A safe and healthy environment is a human right and therefore those who breach that right, in particular on a mass scale during wartime as an act of ecocide, must be legally accountable in an international court of law. So this Council of Europe imitative for a convention and treaty to help deliver environmental justice and to help pay to repair the damage is welcome. The devastation of habitats, species and our natural environment must... 14/10/2022 | 10:28:35 Mr President, It's a great pleasure to stand here and support this fantastic report.
