26/01/2024 | 12:21:41 Thank you very much, Madam Chairwoman, Also from my side as former Chairman of the Monitoring Committee; my compliments to Mr Piero FASSINO, who has done an excellent job in these two years. This progress report is actually always the big summary of the various rapporteurs we have. There has been a very important change since 2015 in that there are not only those who are never looked at and those who are obliged to be looked at, but that every member state is subject to periodic monitoring. I... 26/01/2024 | 11:26:40 Thank you very much, Mister President. I would like to express my sincere thanks to the rapporteur for this contribution and for this resolution, because I have worked in many institutions throughout my life and have repeatedly had to deal with such cases from history. Children were not only virtually disposed of in state institutions, but also handed over to agriculture and the Church as auxiliary workers.

My colleague, Mr Mogens JENSEN has captured the essence of his report by pointing to the positive obligation which member states have to safeguard media freedom and the safety of journalists. In my report, I am insisting on the dangers that Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation, commonly referred to as SLAPPs, represent for the... 24/01/2024 | 19:29:08 Thank you very much. Congratulations, dear Rapporteur, on this report. In my life, I have worked closely with prisons and prison inmates for over 35 years, as a probation officer and also as part of the Council of Europe. I have visited almost countless prisons, including every time I have observed an election as I did recently in Serbia. This means that we have a very important question here, and our rapporteur raises it; it is about human rights, it is about human dignity, it is about...
