28/01/2021 | 09:21:49 Mr President, Ladies and gentlemen, I will continue in German. I am reminded of the film Groundhog Day. Sort of the same theme over and over again and the same attempt to deal with it. At some point one would have to consider whether this is the right way, if the majorities are the way they are, or whether there are not other ways of dealing with the issue. And I want to stress this again, because it was also the subject of yesterday's debate here: despite all the difficulties, all the upset... 27/01/2021 | 16:26:58 Thank you very much, Madam Chair, I would like to thank Mr Jacques MAIRE for his introduction to the report and all those who are concerned with the difficult human rights situation in Russia. I think it has become clear, and I think that Jacques MAIRE has made this very clear, that it is much better if we deal with these substantive issues and do not spend all our time here with procedural questions. It is also not good if we insult each other, that makes no sense and it also makes no sense... 26/01/2021 | 18:17:44 Mister President, Ladies and gentlemen, What we are doing today - as has indeed just become clear - is actually, so to speak, finalising what we have discussed with each other for a long time, what has really taken many hours, days and nights to develop over the last few years. I almost said that the Secretary General of the Assembly has grown a few more grey hairs, but he already has a lot of grey hair. Mr Wojciech SAWICKI has done a lot of work, as well as the whole Secretariat of the... 26/01/2021 | 09:28:21 Thank you very much, Mr President, Ladies and gentlemen, My home country is Germany, and hardly anyone in Germany knows about the Council of Europe, but there are a great many people who do know about the European Court of Human Rights. Unfortunately, many people think that it is part of the European Union and not of the Council of Europe, but we can still clarify that. The fact that many people know about this Court shows how important it is, even in a country like Germany. The Court is at... 20/11/2020 | 15:25:31 Thank you very much Mr President. I hope you can hear me. I would like to thank all of you. It is maybe not the most important report in our Assembly but for sure it is a necessary report because it brings us into the situation to deal with the COVID-19 situation and with whatever will happen. I'm quite sure that we will not misuse it. It was especially Mr Sergey KISLYAK who raised some concerns about it. I think that's the normal risk of misusing it. For sure I would like to say as well...
