30/09/2021 | 17:45:39 Thank you Mr President, It's clear that the rapporteur has put a great deal of work into this very detailed report. The topic is a very important one as cybercrime has become a major threat that has visited many countries in recent times. We are told that the purpose of the second additional protocol to the convention on cybercrime is to provide sharper tools to investigate cybercrime and obtain justice for victims. This is all good and perhaps necessary but, of course, we must carefully... 30/09/2021 | 16:00:27 Thank you, Chair. Let me start by saying that it is utterly shameful that poor refugees are being instrumentalised by political leaders and used as tools for political ends. Now we have the situation at the borders of Belarus and other countries detailed in the report.

Let me start by reading a few sentences from that resolution: “In the past months there were new crackdowns on political opposition and civil dissent… Investigations and prosecutions targeted members of parliament, … opposition political parties and lawyers. Continued undue pressure exerted on journalists... and civil society activists… Such crackdowns also have a regrettable chilling effect on women... 20/11/2020 | 17:15:15 Thank you, Mr President. I would like to first congratulate Mr Koloman BRENNER for this very timely and much needed and wonderful report and resolution. I myself was an academic before I joined formal politics so that's why I very carefully read every single sentence a couple of times. It seems that the report does have two main arguments. On the one hand it is the argument about the commercialization of academic institutions, a process whereby knowledge becomes a commodity. By commodity I...
