26/01/2021 | 12:21:02 Thank you. I shall now put the amendment to the vote. Again, members in the chamber use the hemicycle system. Members remotely use the remote voting system. The vote is open. The result is to be displayed. The vote is closed. We have 74 votes in favour, 14 against and 6 abstentions. The amendment is agreed to. I call for Amendment 14. I have been informed by the chairperson of the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights that amendment 14 was rejected by the Committee with a two thirds... 26/01/2021 | 10:09:39 Mr President, Ladies and gentlemen, A few weeks ago we celebrated the 70th anniversary of the European Convention on Human Rights.

I'd also like to thank him for the very disciplined and structured way that the issue has been dealt with. I believe he avoided the temptation to fall into certain traps because the topic of this particular report involves, of course, the issue of interventions or interference from abroad or by foreign governments... 30/01/2020 | 18:36:06 Mr. President, Dear colleagues. I deliberately do not want to go into detail about individual countries in the short time available this evening, other speakers will certainly do that, but would like to deal once again with the role and significance of the monitoring procedure, which is also central to the work of our Assembly. I stress that the monitoring procedure is an essential part of the success story of this Parliamentary Assembly. It has existed in its present form since 1997; its...
