11/10/2023 | 17:30:48 I want to thank the rapporteur for the work that has been done. Because it gives us a resolution, a Report that is very balanced but also very courageous. It accounts for the abuses that have taken place or that might have been taking place. It asks for in-depth studies and clarifications from the authorities involved, it points out misconducts and possible violations. But I do not believe, however, as is right as well that we do, that it should be read as only a censure, a judgment. And I... 10/10/2023 | 17:17:24 I want to thank Mr Samad SEYIDOV for his report and proposals. By supporting to this resolution I fulfill a duty that comes from the constitution of my country which defines the Italian Republic as anti-fascist. The report tells us that it is necessary to encourage political leaders to have an inclusive public discourse and to avoid divisive rhetoric, condemning hate speech.

Poland in its history should have learned this sad lesson. We should be concerned then when this happens with greatly weakened institutions of guarantee and judiciary, as in the case of Poland. But if one does not want to stop at the... 26/01/2021 | 12:10:39 I would like to respond, above all, to an issue that I find particularly distasteful in this debate. I was willing to go to Poland on the 1st December to meet the authorities. That did not prevent us from having a meeting with the authorities, which I recalled. This has not prevented us from having a meeting with the authorities whom I have recalled and who were able to express their views. It is said that there is no evidence. But I did not make a trial. I have referred to acts of third... 26/01/2021 | 11:07:26 Thank you, Mister President. Following the motion for a resolution, six judges were to remain independent in Poland and in the Republic of Moldova. I was mandated to prepare this report and to examine the situation of the legal and judicial power in the two countries. The report was prepared by hearing experts and authorities. Unfortunately, due to the difficult conditions we are experiencing, I was unable to go to Warsaw, where I had been invited, on 1 December. However, we organized a...
