22/06/2023 | 16:27:13 Thank you, Tiny. Dear colleagues, Our group is not unanimous on the issue of the athletes. Some of us are following the opinion of their rapporteur. Some others have a different opinion. Take note that I'm not speaking about a majority. We didn't put that to the vote, because we did not want it to be a divisive issue diverting us from supporting the values of this Organisation and supporting Ukraine. But this is exactly my point. The discussion with this report is very divisive. Not among us... 21/06/2023 | 15:57:33 Thank you, Tiny. First of all, I would like to congratulate and commend the rapporteur for the clarity of her presentation. I reminded, also, the colleagues at the meeting of the Rules Committee that the most known passage we have from the Athenian orator Demosthenes is one saying that we need money if we want our goals to be fulfilled.

Dear colleagues, There is a new term in constitutional law. It is called autocratic... 25/04/2023 | 18:32:47 Thank you. Thank you very much, Madam Chair. The first thing I would like to do and I admit it due to the limitation of time is to thank Ms Eleanor HOURIGAN from the Committee on Legal Affairs and Human Rights for her valuable contribution to this report. Then I would like to thank all of you who spoke with good words for this work of mine, and I will just try to reply only to direct questions that have been posed to me and some more general remarks. I begin by the general remarks I would... 25/04/2023 | 17:16:16 Thank you very much, Madam Chair. I had the idea to propose, by a motion, this subject to discussion for a resolution, exactly because we see tension arising among the courts of the three parallel legal systems we have in our continent. We have the national legal systems; having a supreme norm, the constitution; we have, of course, our European Convention of Human Rights, and the court as the arbiter of this system, and we have also the European Union law and the Court of the European Union...
