30/01/2020 | 17:18:56 Thank you, Mr President. These are two very important reports, we must not ever take our eyes off this vital issue of protecting child migrants, especially unaccompanied migrants. I mean, we must be vigilant about the ramifications attendant on human trafficking and smuggling. As my colleague, Ms Kerry MCCARTHY, has said earlier, my colleague Mr Vernon COAKER was responsible the first report and has put so much effort into it. He's not here due to one of those vagaries of an election. I know... 30/01/2020 | 10:18:17 Thank you, Mr President and colleagues. It's a great pleasure to follow the Commissioner for Human Rights and I thank Mr Stefan SCHENNACH on behalf of the Socialists, Democrats and Greens Group for producing and presenting this very important report.

Things such as mental health, women's health, and now for the second time, children's issues. It is a very important issue. I look forward to hearing my colleague Rosa express her opinions in her report. It's an honour and a pleasure to read and present this report... 25/06/2019 | 16:14:55 It's good to see that the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe has taken stock of the situation and raised unresolved issues, stating that whilst the assembled convention has contributed to saving hundreds of lives, we need a new political and operational approach and men and women need to do this work together. It is true that across nations, new criminal offences of for example forced marriage, stalking, female genital mutilation, rape and abuse have been instituted. In my...
