10/10/2023 | 19:34:37 Thank you, Mister Chairman. As a founding member of the Council of Europe, France has failed to meet its obligations in terms of human rights, the rule of law, and democracy. First of all, according to this report, the use of weapons by French law enforcement officers has caused serious injury and death during mass demonstrations. The death of 17-year-old Nahel Merzouk, of Algerian-Moroccan origin, shot dead by a police officer at a roadside checkpoint, is a horrific example of the systemic... 23/06/2023 | 10:32:45 Thank you very much, Mister President. I have to mention that one of the most egregious examples of transnational repression which this report failed to mention is based on ethnic cleansing. The people of Azerbaijan have suffered from ethnic cleansing, massacre, genocide, military occupation, and armed conflicts in the last two centuries. Ethnic cleansing committed against the people of Azerbaijan in 1905-1906, in 1918-1921, and in 1948-1951, in 1987-1991 could be characterised by its... 21/06/2023 | 19:07:27 Thank you very much, Madam President. Dear colleagues, The background to the work on this report is an ongoing debate in the UK about finding the most appropriate way to protect human rights and the rule of law within the framework of the UK's constitutional model. During the course of hearings, exchanges of views and an informative visit, I was struck at how this is the subject of intense yet thoughtful discussion in the UK. I am grateful to all those who contributed to this work. These... 25/04/2023 | 19:18:49 Thank you Madam President, In the summary of the report, the rapporteur points out that the partners have shown a varying degree of commitment to the goals of the partnership. This is a very important statement and we should ask ourselves why those partner countries are reluctant to commit themselves fully to the goals defined by us. Dear colleagues, The Council of Europe bodies were more effective and attractive for addressing common challenges, but therefore and naturally many neighbouring... 26/01/2023 | 19:39:27 Thank you very much, Mister President. Dear Colleagues, If there is any blockade, it's definitely an artificial information blockade conceived by those powers who wanted to divert attention from the war in Ukraine. An advisor to the Ukrainian president, Mykhailo Podolyak, gave a public interview to the Moldovan public television. In his interview, he said that the issues regarding the Lachin corridor are being artificially inflated with incorrect data on the size of the local population in...
