22/06/2021 | 19:35:06 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear Colleagues, I should like to thank the Rapporteur, Mr. Hunko for his excellent and timely Report. As the Report highlights, the pandemic revealed discrepancies among member states, but also among the different segments and societal groups. These inequalities, exacerbated by years of austerity measures, left many of our governments with little room to manoeuvre and recover from the most severe health crisis our modern societies are facing... 22/04/2021 | 13:07:24 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear Colleagues, The PACE has repeatedly warned about the consequences of Turkey’s deviation from our Organisation’s standards and principles, which primarily affect Turkish society and the most progressive forces within it.

There is a growing need, though, for the Council of Europe to further enhance its relevance in promoting peace through multilateralism. Stepping up... 28/01/2021 | 11:56:00 Good afternoon, from Nicosia. Allow me first to congratulate Mr Boriss CILEVIČS for his excellent report. Dear colleagues, the violent killings of George Floyd and Brianna Taylor by police officers in the US have shocked public opinion worldwide. Europe unfortunately has not been spared: the detention of far-right and Neo-Nazi groups in Germany's law enforcement institutions, systemic racism in French national police, the recent resignation of the Dutch government over child care subsidies...
