26/01/2023 | 17:45:24 Thank you very much, Madam President. If I may, I would like to refer to Poland and Hungary, both of which are subject to the review by the Assembly. The report is fairly detailed in fact when it comes to the Polish case. In the case of Poland, we know that there have been two rulings by the Constitutional Court of Poland. They state that Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights is not compatible with the Polish Constitution. That is the interpretation of the court. In addition to... 25/01/2023 | 19:32:05 Thank you very much, Mister President. The Istanbul Convention came into force in 2014, already over eight years ago. It's a convention on violence against women and against domestic violence as well. The first draft debate, of course, concerned violence against women.

I haven't attended many settings of the Parliamentary Assembly, but I do see there are certain recurring issues you deal with, and this is one of them. To the greatest satisfaction, I'm sure, of all members who spoke on but after the left and the center-left, I'd like to tell you that in Spain we have a law, Law No. 15 of... 22/06/2022 | 16:30:08 Thank you, Mister Chair. I will continue in Spanish. I think there really is a terrible confusion here regarding questions that should not be lumped together. The right to asylum and protection granted by the European Union and other international bodies, as well as European bodies, are, without any doubt, sufficient to provide ample protection to people coming from the war in Ukraine. There is no doubt about that, including unaccompanied minors. Now if we want to extend the right to asylum...
