21/06/2023 | 20:13:39 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear Chair, Dear Colleagues, I would like to congratulate all three rapporteurs for their excellent works. Most of the European governments’ first response was to deny the existence of migration and the rights of migrants. And their initial response failed to comply with human rights obligations of the States. Rising xenophobia, racism and Islamophobia have blocked the attempts for social and political integration of new comers to the Europe... 14/10/2022 | 12:02:09 Dear President, Dear Colleagues, I would like to congratulate the rapporteur for her excellent work concerning the critical balance between public health and individual freedoms.

Under public international law and the European Convention on Human Rights, states can, in principle, determine the terms and conditions under which non... 11/10/2022 | 18:49:43 Dear President, Dear Colleagues, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the rapporteur Mr Momodou Malcolm JALLOW for all his efforts in preparing this report, as well as our colleagues today who support this report and stand against the anti‑Muslim sentiments in Europe.
