30/09/2021 | 16:28:55 Dear colleagues, Human beings are being used as weapons in a proxy attack on our continent at this moment. Our common human rights are not something that should be used against sanctions. When people are seeking asylum because their safety is threatened, we have an obligation to make sure to treat every asylum seeker with the rules and systems that are transparent and according to international standards. Human rights and respect for international rule of law are only worth something if they... 22/04/2021 | 11:01:06 Thank you very much, Mr President. To me, this is not about Alexei Navalny. This case is about illegal detention everywhere. About putting opposition in prison. Freedom of speech and opposition rights. This case is about the value of rule of law everywhere. It's about our common human rights and the very legitimacy of the Court of human rights. Therefore, this is not a domestic matter for Russia. It is our common human values that are imprisoned.

Mr Chairperson, witnessing governments across our continent actually working against their own ombudsman is both scary and sad. The legislation reforms that aim to weaken the institution, rejection of the annual report, and unjustified cuts in... 28/06/2019 | 10:34:59 Thank you Mr Chair. I'm in the business of hope. If I wasn't, there wouldn't be any reason to be here. I would like to congratulate the rapporteur on a fantastic report that is really communicating our values in a perfect sense. It takes sides with the innocent in the conflict. It stands up for Human rights. It stands up for international law and it stands up for refugees. It stands up for holding terrorists accountable. It stands up for burden sharing and it stands up for common agreement...
