We must fight against criminals and traffickers, we must inform and denounce them relentlessly. Each success in dismantling a network, for example... 30/01/2020 | 16:25:10 Thank you, Mr President. Dear colleagues, Almost two years ago, our friend and colleague Vernon COAKER was appointed rapporteur on this subject, a subject he had proposed in a motion for a resolution.
