20/11/2020 | 17:08:35 Now, I come back maybe in English. If you look into a society and then there are two twins, which tell you what is the level of democratic standards and the democratic society, and these are twins. One hand is the freedom of media and the other is the academic freedom and autonomy of the higher education institutes. And both are very, very important.

Ladies and Gentlemen, This is a report, a resolution, which deals with a very key issue of human rights and, above all, of human dignity.

For that is the modern slavery that we are experiencing here, and not all states react to it in the same intelligent way, I have to say that this also applies to member states. For example, in forced prostitution, the passports of the victims are taken away; such victims... 30/01/2020 | 11:34:09 Thank you, Mr. Chairman Well, I can remember when the rapporteur for Azerbaijan sat here in the front row, and Mr Strasser, as rapporteur for political prisoners. It was scandalous that the rapporteur for Azerbaijan called on the House to vote against the report on political prisoners. It was outrageous and scandalous.
