27/01/2023 | 11:34:39 Thank you, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, First of all, I would like to congratulate the author of this report, Ms Marta GRANDE, and the member of the committee who has agreed to represent her. It is an extremely important report on several levels, firstly because it goes back to the fundamentals of the European project of the immediate post-war period. I recall, at the Hague Conference, the creation –in 1949, in parallel with our Council of Europe – of the College of Europe in Bruges... 27/01/2023 | 10:50:06 Thank you very much, Madam President. Ladies and gentlemen, As a senior member of the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights, the oldest here this morning, I have the great privilege of speaking briefly on behalf of the Committee. I had the opportunity to follow, with great interest, the two hearings of experts organised by our two successive rapporteurs, Mr Fabien GOUTTEFARDE and our current Committee Chairman, and these experts, including representatives of very critical NGOs, who were... 27/01/2023 | 10:13:18 Thank you, Madam President.

Dear colleagues, First of all, Mr President, I would like to thank you for inviting Mrs Oleksandra MATVIICHUK to speak here. Madam, I would like to express all the emotion we feel for having been, often in a partial way, defenders of people who have suffered. What you yourself must feel, beyond the harshness of what people have suffered, is something terrible and I want to congratulate you and your organisation. I believe that this Nobel Peace Prize is fully deserved... 27/04/2022 | 15:50:05 It is with great emotion and rage that I address you. I am thinking in particular of our colleagues from the Ukrainian delegation, some of whom may be present. Others have joined the civilian and military forces to defend their country. For seven years, we ignored their cries of alarm about what was going to happen, and today we are discovering the dark reality of a horrible war, the dirtiest war we have seen on this continent since the Second World War. I therefore want to reaffirm both my...
