23/06/2023 | 11:44:46 Thank you very much, Madam President. My colleague Madam Edite ESTRELA began with a story, a little story. I'm going to tell you a little story too. My dad is 86 years old. He's in a retirement home, his mental faculties are intact, but he has difficulty getting around. He's a victim of the digital divide and a hostage to the banks. Why hostage to the banks? Because he has a bank card. He can no longer make paper payments or transfers. His bank branch has closed, so it's with the help of his... 27/04/2023 | 18:48:10 Thank you, Mr President, And thank you Mr Geraint DAVIES for your excellent report on this subject.

Mister President, My Dear Colleagues, I would first like to thank the rapporteurs and especially Mr Pierre-Alain FRIDEZ and welcome the progress made by the Republic of Moldova. I would still like to add some nuances to the chorus of praise that I have heard, because I will be speaking here as general rapporteur on LGBTI people. I would like to remind you that our Assembly is very clear on gender issues and calls on its member States to, and I quote: "develop... 25/01/2023 | 18:28:54 Thank you very much, Mister President, for giving me the opportunity to speak. The Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence, also known as the Istanbul Convention, has been in existence for almost 12 years and is, unfortunately, very often called into question by various States, even though they are members of the Council of Europe and the Parliamentary Assembly.
