30/01/2020 | 19:05:51 Thank you, President. Dear colleagues, I would like to thank the rapporteur for his report which takes stock of the monitoring expertise of PACE in 2019. These activities, and sure that PACE is a beacon for democracy and human rights in Europe and beyond.

President and dear Colleagues, The presence of an independent, free and plural media community is a prerequisite for a functioning democratic society. As parliamentarians, it is our duty to go beyond paying lip service and to take efficient steps for further protection of freedom of expression.
