20/11/2020 | 16:28:55 Dear colleagues, I want to congratulate the rapporteur Ms Petra STIENEN for her report and I fully agree with the rapporteur that this report is very timely. Of course it's always timely and necessary to address the gender issues here in the Assembly as elsewhere, but in the year 2020 we are remembering many international milestones of the fight for gender equality as the rapporteur mentioned: the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action for Gender Equality, and 20 years since the... 30/01/2020 | 18:06:54 Dear President, I just wanted to use some of these three minutes to welcome this debate and both of these reports and want to thank the rapporteurs, Mr Vernon COAKER and Ms Serap YAŞAR and the Secretariat, of course, for their very good work.

I want to congratulate Lord George FOULKES on this extremely important report. Threats to media freedom and journalists' security is a direct threat to democracy as is stated so clearly in the report. Did you all know that 10 journalists have been killed in Council of Europe member states since 2017, with their killing directly linked to their profession?
