24/06/2021 | 17:05:34 Thank you. Thank you, Mr Chair, I also would like to congratulate Mr Momodou Malcolm JALLOW for this short, but excellent report, both in terms of content and style. Let me first say a couple of things about the content. I found this report to be very radical. I know oftentimes people do not like the word "radical" but I use this in a very specific sense. By radical, I mean it captures the very root causes of the problem and it addresses those very roots with specific proposals. What do I... 22/04/2021 | 12:02:21 Dear Chair, Dear Colleagues, Six months ago, we had another urgent affairs debate on Turkey. 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.

This summer we have seen protests in Russia against the government's crackdown on the opposition, in the run-up to the Moscow city council elections. Detentions, police violence, disqualification or arrest of opposition candidates have greatly undermined the legitimacy of these elections. Russian authorities have violated the freedom of speech, the right to assembly and peaceful protest, and the right to have a fair and free election: the fundamentals of any democratic... 28/06/2019 | 10:17:51 I would also like to thank Madam Rapporteur for this quality work. It nicely summarises some of the main issues that relate to the Syrian conflict, which is now in the eighth year and cost dearly to the peoples of Syria. Unfortunately, as a person from Turkey who is close to Syria and actually Turkey is at war in Syria, I'm not very optimistic about a possible resolution of the conflict in the near future, for the clear fact that the fate of Syrian people unfortunately is not in their hands...
