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. It is weak politics to attack the European Court of Human Rights for domestic political purposes. It's weak. It means you have nothing left to stand for. The fact that you aim now to declare supremacy of domestic courts over the European Convention of Human Rights is weak. I seem to recall many... 23/06/2022 | 11:33:17 Dankuwel, Tiny. [in Dutch: Thank you] Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Colleagues, Let me first extend my deep and heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the victims of this terrible terrible crime. I'm doing this on behalf of myself, but also the Socialists, Democrats and Greens Group. I think it is important that the resolution actually extends the condolences of the Assembly to the family.

Dear colleagues, Imprisoning people for expressing themselves is a lethal weapon against democracy. Criminalising dissent is one of the most effective measures to drain the life out of any democratic society. Creating an atmosphere of fear, repression and persecution of any opposition is the necessary precondition for totalitarian rule. And, as Mr Vladimir Kara-Murza, one of Russia´s political prisoners so eloquently puts it; internal suppression leads to external... 28/04/2022 | 11:29:11 Thank you, Mr Chair. I'd like to commend the Rapporteur on his excellent and comprehensive report that was worked on and finished with very short notice. I would also like to say that this is a combined effort of the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights. We worked very hard on this report and I think – excuse me – I think we could get a much better report after our collaboration. I would like to point out that it is a comprehensive report but it needs further work by the Committee on...
