30/01/2020 | 18:43:16 Thank you, Mr President, I thank our colleague Sir Roger GALE for the quality and importance of his work and the mission that he has accomplished at the head of this Monitoring Committee. Indeed, we can see from this comprehensive report that it is an excellent overview of the committee's activities over the past year. I do not want to go into detail, country by country, but I would like to emphasise in this debate that this monitoring procedure is a crucial working instrument for the... 28/01/2020 | 10:59:05 Thank you. I would first like to thank our two rapporteurs, Ms Azadeh ROJHAN GUSTAFSSON and Mr Pieter OMTZIGT, for their work on democratic institutions. It is a report that is excellent, remarkable and uncompromising. It gives, of course, an informed view of the reality of the reforms, but it goes much further, since it actually details what is most important: the political project behind these reforms. This is a political project that refers to a regression in terms of democracy and... 27/01/2020 | 12:55:54 Thank you, Mr. President.

Of course, like everyone else, we welcome the 17 June Prespa Agreement. Mr Zaev showed on the occasion of this very painful decision that he is a true statesman. I was myself in North Macedonia on 27 January 2019, the very same day that the Greek Parliament ratified the agreement. And I observed on this occasion that beyond... 01/10/2019 | 11:19:01 Thank you, Madam President, I would first like to congratulate my colleague, Sylvain WASERMAN, for his rich, interesting and very ambitious report for our Assembly. Naturally, I fully support his proposals, which in particular call on the Committee of Ministers to launch the negotiation of a Convention for the protection of whistle-blowers. I myself had the opportunity to get involved in this situation, especially with whistle-blowers from the financial sector, as rapporteur in 2019, on the...
