11/10/2022 | 18:42:52 President, In the short time available to me, I would like to focus, firstly, on the main word in the title of the report namely “Islamophobia,” where "phobia", according to the dictionary, stands for "fear unfounded". This debate requires two thoughts at the same time, something that seems to be challenging for some people. To claim that someone who criticises, for instance, a religion – Christianity, Islam for instance – is a phobe can easily be a ruler technique and a way of reducing a... 27/04/2022 | 16:20:21 Thank you Mr President. In this brief statement, I wish to focus specifically on a number of long-term, more mental impacts, first and foremost among the literally shell-shocked population of Ukraine. For example, thousands of babies have been born in underground shelters, lacking nourishment and kept awake by artillery shells exploding above them, with the ground shaking below them, and crying and horrified people crouching around them.

A deadly enemy, the IS, is active... 28/01/2020 | 11:49:05 Madam President. Last week a spokesmen from the European Commission in Brussels said, and I quote, "the Commission is very concerned about the rule of law situation in Poland". End of quote. This was after Poland had lost several cases in the EU's Court of Justice brought by the Commission over alleged shortcomings in the country's administration of justice and threatening Poland with losing millions of Euros of EU funding unless it corrected these alleged shortcomings. In reaction to this... 01/10/2019 | 11:12:52 Yes, Madam President. I have studied Mr Waserman's report on whistle-blowers with great interest, and I find it very good and timely. Nevertheless, there is one aspect I believe might usefully be added, and that is a more explicit reference to the fundamental importance in this context of a free and independently acting press and media landscape in our member states. Basically, we can have a hundred EU directives, a hundred Council of Europe conventions, national boards, legal support funds...
