Distinguished members of the Assembly, we are discussing here today the recent developments in Libya and in the Middle East, and we are trying to identify which could be the consequences of those developments for Europe. The immediate consequences for Europe are many folds. But the most acute among those consequences happen to be the increasing pressure emanating from massive population displacements and growing migration, as well as the increasing danger of terroris... 28/01/2020 | 18:24:35 Thank you, Mr President. Honorable members of the Assembly, The month of January is a month of mourning for all the democratic forces in Turkey who believe in the right to freedom of expression, as well as free, independent and pluralistic media. It is a month of mourning because 3 journalists in Turkey have been killed in January.

The report on protecting and supporting the victims of terrorism stands as an excellent work on covering the unseen effects on victims of any given terrorist attack.

They have a social life, a family and a work environm... 26/06/2019 | 19:20:09 Merci Madame la Presidente On 24 January 1993, a famous journalist, Ugur MUMCU, was assassinated by a car bomb in front of his home in Ankara, Turkey. He was a leading writer for the Daily Cumhuriyet and his death led to wide condemnation and public protests. Today, annual commemorative events are organised in order to keep the new generations  aware of this cowardly attack on life, but ultimately on the writing, thinking and opinion-making of a respected journalist. Since Ugur MUMCU’s death, at...
