21/04/2021 | 17:51:18 Mr President. I congratulate Ms Martine WONNER on this very incisive report. She is right to draw attention to the duties of the Council of Europe member states to ensure universal access to the rights of people with disabilities and long-term illness. As the report points out, chronic and long-term illnesses can have a devastating impact on a person's life, dignity and ability to function. They are the main cause of premature death and affect human rights and fundamental freedoms. There are... 27/01/2021 | 11:05:46 It's a very great pleasure to speak in this debate which is so incredibly timely. I thank Ms Jennifer DE TEMMERMAN for researching and producing it.

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. We are faced with an urgent issue: the safety of children in the context of repatriation in conflict situations. The definition of child, we must not forget, is under 18, but these children are mainly under 12: they are very very young. The UN... 27/06/2019 | 15:55:00 Madam President, Colleagues, good afternoon. We have had many moving speeches today and speakers have been to the point and put many important issues to us.
