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.

We are talking about the future of the Council of Europe, which was brought together as a result of the violence of war. During the Cold War, dialogue was achieved on the basis of similar stories or histories. We need to have dialogue when we... 25/01/2019 | 10:55:31 I thank the rapporteur for the excellent work that has been done. We must share the view expressed in this report. The revocation of nationality is a measure that runs totally counter to the fundamental principle of human rights. We must not forget that we have numerous other sanction mechanisms that can be implemented, but rendering an individual stateless is not one of them. I suggest that we use other forms of sanction. Some may say that this measure is useful, but I would counter that by... 24/01/2019 | 17:45:32 I wish to say to Lord Simon RUSSELL that we are not bored in Italy, and perhaps we should be discussing why that is. If you put a moustache on a wonderful painting such as the Mona Lisa, you will look at the moustache and not the Mona Lisa, as it would have your attention. For that reason, we need to do away with a certain amount of moustaches that have found their way into this report and see beyond to the picture. The report mentions corruption, which is omnipresent. It exists and it needs...
