23/06/2022 | 18:08:53 Thank you, Mister Chair. First of all, I would like to thank Mr Jacques MAIRE for his impressive work, and a thorough report. He has managed to deliver where his predecessors did not make it. I would like also to thank Mr Serhii KALCHENKO for his contribution to the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights. I am especially glad that we had also the chance to hear the views from Kyrgyzstan by a member of the parliament there. And I think that Mr Jacques MAIRE has made the situation clear... 23/06/2022 | 16:44:27 Thank you, Madam President. The previous speaker has demonstrated very well how Ukraine is not just the bread basket for Europe but for the rest of the world as well. She has also demonstrated that the biggest risk is now for vulnerable countries, especially those in Africa. There are cases like the one she has mentioned of Egypt that has a dependence of more than 80 per cent. There are other countries in the sub-Saharian area, especially in east Africa – Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia – which... 23/06/2022 | 15:46:50 Thank you very much, Chair.

When we are facing such worrisome, I would say even preposterous cases, like the Rwanda case... 23/06/2022 | 11:29:57 Thank you very much, Mister Chair. Many thanks to the Rapporteur Mr Titus CORLĂŢEAN for his thorough work. It is not accidental that the two previous speakers are from the Netherlands. As already explained by the last speaker, that was a permanent source of grief, this flight in this country; a scar in the national psyche of the Dutch people. But justice is never local; it is universal. What we are discussing today is how the victims of this flight could be vindicated. It has already been... 28/04/2022 | 11:25:40 Thank you, Mr Chair. It is very logical, after having unanimously condemned politically the Russian aggression to Ukraine, to discuss now the legal accountability, especially regarding war crimes, and the crime of aggression. We should all stand unanimous in that. We have objected to a part of the report that is related to the establishment of an ad hoc tribunal. I remind you that the political has outvoted a similar proposal. This proposal has been subsequently voted at the plenary, at the...
