Last speeches

28/01/2021 | 12:00:00 Yes, Mister President, ladies and gentlemen. This is a particularly sensitive issue, and I really must congratulate you on your excellent report, which I believe provides us with the tools for reflection and action. There is one aspect that certainly concerns the behaviour of the forces of law and order, which has been forcefully mentioned, and there is a fundamental cultural aspect. On entering the European Parliament building this morning, we all left a piece of our hearts on those flowers... 28/01/2021 | 11:32:05 Yes, President, ladies and gentlemen. The first time I took the floor in this parliamentary assembly, almost three years ago now, I did so on a subject such as this.

They are a place where democracy is exercised and where, however, today we are exactly where we were before the birth of democracies, before the rule of law, before the Magna Carta. They are places owned by... 29/01/2020 | 17:29:38 I apologize, Mr President, but I was working with a colleague and I was out of place. No, I believe that the debate that we are trying to hold in these hours, in these minutes, is fundamental to the future of the Council of Europe. We've been over this several times already. I personally have been here for just over a year and this is already the third time that we have tried to reflect, in fact, on what our nature is, and consequently on what rules we must give ourselves to respond to our...
