30/01/2020 | 10:25:18 Mr President, ladies and gentlemen, IS fighters have brutally slaughtered people of other faiths in Iraq and Syria for years, and spread terror in the name of the Islamic State. Women have also taken part in this and have clearly committed unconditional murder for their faith in Islam. There were professional killers and terrorists at work. And now, the motion demands that we should take back these tested murderers in our countries. Ladies and gentlemen, what this motion represents is a... 28/01/2020 | 18:11:51 The attack on free journalism, ladies and gentlemen, we all agree that it is an attack on freedom of expression and, therefore, an attack on democracy, no doubt about that. The attacks are often less physical these days, instead, such attacks are often much more subtle. Journalists follow the given spectrum of opinion, because opinions are persecuted. Exactly as it is also shown in the report, under point six, we have heard about legislations being enacted to clamp down on them.

In the case of this resolution, four main points are ignored: Firstly, it declares a legal status for climate refugees, without a definition of who is actually a climate refugee and how they can achieve this status; it is completely missing. This opens the door completely to abuse. We have now learned in the Committee that, apparently this year, it has been said... 24/06/2019 | 19:50:41 Ladies and gentlemen, The discussion is largely going in the wrong direction. The fact is that Russia's quasi expulsion from the Council of Europe is a wrong decision. With the expulsion of Russia from the Council of Europe, the correction of the annexation of the Crimea was never achievable. That was just the wrong thing to do. So this is all about correcting the use of wrong means. Means that, first and foremost, harm us here in the Council of Europe. Because the primary means of the...
