30/01/2020 | 16:13:14 Thank you, Mr Chair. Dear Colleagues, Libya is suffering endless bloodshed in recent years, being the theatre of following interventions, openly involved in the civil war. At the same time, the collapse of state structures has turned the area into concentration camps for migrants from Africa at the mercy of human traffickers. However, all of the above have a common origin and a specific course. As it was said by Mr George PAPANDREOU, Libya is currently in this tragic situation because, in... 28/01/2020 | 18:35:51 Thank you Mr Chairperson. Dear colleagues, I would also like to congratulate the reporter Lord George FOULKES for his report on an admittedly timely topic, as violent incidents and attacks on journalists are constantly on the rise. The most striking example is the matter of the Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in 2017, who was leading the investigation on corruption charges in Malta and had made revelations in relation to the Panama Papers.

As other colleagues have pointed out, we now confront – for the first time in the 70 years since this Organisation was founded – a very severe and important crisis. We are at a crossroads, and we need to make a choice. That choice will be decisive and will have huge... 10/04/2019 | 15:52:07 I thank the rapporteurs for their reports. Ms Elvira KOVÁCS’s report contains some very useful suggestions for combating hate speech and intolerance, which, unfortunately, are still on the rise.
