23/01/2024 | 17:29:21 Thank you, Chair. When I was a young girl, one of the first books that I have a very strong memory of and left a lasting impact on me was Anne Frank's diary. I could not understand or comprehend such cruelty, such a horrific example of man's inhumanity to man. Years later, I visited Dachau, Auschwitz and Belsen, and again, I was horrified as to what happened. It was explained by everybody I knew by people saying, "we didn't know", "the world didn't know what was happening", "we're ashamed and... 10/10/2023 | 19:48:44 That's fine. Thank you very much, Chair. And can I thank all of those who contributed to debate. And just to emphasise that at all times that we, myself and Ms Yelyzaveta YASKO, behaved in an absolutely professional way in terms of listening, engaging, and fact checking in terms of the information that is in the report.

France of course is an... 21/06/2023 | 19:51:05 Thank you, Chair. Today, for many reasons is significant, in that the British government's Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill is being heard at report stage in the House of Lords. This Bill proposes an effective amnesty for those accused of killing or maiming people during the Troubles in Northern Ireland. While some amendments were made on the 8th of this month, the substance of the Bill remains intact. I wish to express my very grave concerns about this Bill, which... 20/06/2023 | 19:19:05 Thank you, Chair. I think this is a very, very timely report and I really want to congratulate the rapporteur. As we are emerging from the brutal trauma that was Covid, and we deal with new and emerging crises ever since, it's vitally important that we collaborate our respective and our collective learnings and experiences.
