28/01/2021 | 12:22:38 Thank you very much Mr President for allowing me to speak. This is a very important report. It's a very, very important report.

This debate is about freedom of expression and what this Assembly must do to promote the protection of journalists and guarantee the safety of journalists against the backdrop of increased repression of journalists and media houses, not only in Europe but around the world.
