18/04/2024 | 18:57:03 Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Ladies and Gentlemen, The conflict at the heart of this debate predates the creation of the Council of Europe 75 years ago, but remains as deadly as ever. Following the bloody attacks perpetrated by Hamas on 7 October 2023, the international community widely recognised Israel's right to defend itself. Probably anticipating a disproportionate response, it insisted, however, that this must be done in compliance with the rules of humanitarian law, which implies not... 17/04/2024 | 17:23:21 Thank you, Mister Chairman.

In addition to the countless civilian casualties and destruction caused by this unjustified war, the Russian forces have also... 13/10/2023 | 10:40:54 Thank you, Madam Chairman. Ladies and Gentlemen, The illegitimacy and illegality of Russia's war of aggression in Ukraine is made a little clearer every time we debate it in this House. Today, it is the very legitimacy and legality of the mandate of the person ultimately responsible for it that finds itself under the microscope of our Assembly. The Venice Commission unequivocally concluded that the ad hominem derogation to the term limits of the incumbent President violates both the Russian... 11/10/2023 | 18:08:56 Thank you, Madam President. Back in 2019, the University of Toronto's interdisciplinary Citizen Lab investigated possible infections of communications devices by Israeli-made Pegasus spyware. It appears that several countries have used this spyware to monitor activities and individuals deemed suspicious, so much so that Canada's House of Commons Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics studied the issue and tabled a report in 2022, in which it was revealed that Canadian...
