28/01/2021 | 09:24:58 Mr President, colleagues, anyone who has witnessed the debate in this house over the past few years will not be surprised to learn that there are differing views on this issue in the Group of the European People's Party (Christian Democrats) and European Democrats. I want to be frank about that right at the start. However, I also want to make it clear that we in the Group of the European People's Party (Christian Democrats) and European Democrats are largely in agreement. We largely agree... 27/01/2021 | 16:53:23 Madam President, Ladies and gentlemen, Let me begin by stating clearly and unequivocally that the Navalny case, in all its dimensions, is not a domestic matter, not a question of national sovereignty, no.

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. This reminds us once again that here in the Council of Europe we have created a system for the protection of individual human rights that is unique and exemplary in the world.
