18/04/2024 | 18:03:04 Thank you, Mister Chairman, for giving me the floor in such an important debate. I would indeed like to express my deep indignation, as do other colleagues, following the incessant destruction of infrastructure in the Gaza Strip since Saturday 7 October 2024 – the day Israel was attacked by the terrorist organization Hamas. I haven't heard anyone defend Hamas here so far, Mr Andrew PERCY, on the contrary, everyone condemns Hamas, but everyone also condemns - except you, at any rate - Israel's... 18/04/2024 | 15:58:35 Thank you, Mr President, for giving me the floor in this important debate. My congratulations go to Ms Thórhildur Sunna ÆVARSDÓTTIR, who has done a magnificent job in record time. Because she asks the question: what use are we politicians?

Before I begin my presentation, I'd like to thank the Cecretariat, in particular Ms Sarah BURTON who was a member of the Secretariat, but who has now left to work in other departments, but also Ms Élodie FISCHER who is behind me and who has really masterfully taken over Sarah's role. I'd like to remind all the members of parliament, all the senators, all the members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe that, while the political impetus... 25/01/2024 | 19:03:14 Thank you, Mister Chairman. Ladies and gentlemen, My congratulations to you, Mister President, on your constant improvement in your knowledge of foreign languages. You've improved your accents over the years, and I congratulate you on that. But let's get back to the serious subject of press freedom and how to effectively guarantee the safety and security of journalists. As a trained historian, I'd like to take a step back 200 years.
