26/01/2024 | 11:05:16 Dear Chair, dear colleagues, I would like to thank the rapporteur for drawing our attention to this important problem. Child abuse in institutions is a shame, the scale and seriousness of which our society may still not have realised. Shame, shame on perpetrators. Shame on those who tolerate this. Shame on those who covered it up, who knew about it, and were silent. In all countries where the phenomenon of child abuse was confronted, consequently and publicly, with protecting the victims, it... 25/01/2024 | 12:36:16 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2)   One of the saddest chapters of the terrible and repulsive aggression against Ukraine is the fate of Ukrainian children. The destruction, the war, the danger to life, the injuries, the concern for relatives, the tearing apart of families, the loss of fathers, mothers, brothers and sisters, the dispersal of childhood are in themselves a terrible price for this horrible attack. What makes this even more horrific is the practice of Russian... 23/01/2024 | 20:18:58 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) First of all I would like to thank the rapporteur for drawing attention to this very important problem.

Madam Chair, dear colleagues, We are usually discussing the great principles in this Chamber. Democracy, freedom, human rights are the core values of this organisation and hopefully the whole of Europe. But these principles must apply in the real world. And in this reality, dishonest political intent sometimes prevails over them. In my opinion, this is what is at stake in this case. We all know there will be an election in Poland. No doubt this law is not targeting... 26/04/2023 | 19:24:06 Thank you very much, Madam Chair. Dear Colleagues, I want to thank the rapporteur for this comprehensive and precise report, even if it's not always joyful. The decisions of the European Court of Human Rights have a central role in defending human rights. In many times the Court is the last hope of the citizens seeking truth in their personal cases. Implementing the decisions of the Court is a test of the rule of law not only for these individuals but for the whole public. I am not happy to...
