26/01/2023 | 10:43:07 Thank you, Mister President. Impunity for war crimes is a driving factor for war crimes. The fact that perpetrators of war crimes very often escape justice is a big reason why war crimes are so readily committed in conflicts all over the world. This is why we must do our very best to end impunity for war crimes. In the case of Russia's horrendous war of aggression against Ukraine, there's not only impunity for war crimes, but the terrible practice of Russian soldiers being awarded for war... 14/10/2022 | 12:29:07 Thank you, Mister President.

In this context, the EU Digital Covid Certificate, better known as the Covid Pass, helped alleviate some of these restrictions, so that the holders of this Pass could more easily move freely in a world suddenly closed off to many... 23/06/2022 | 16:14:21 Thank you, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, The UK government may believe that they are taking a strong stance against, as a colleague mentioned that, the Strasbourg Court, but they are not.
