Speeches since 2019

11/10/2023 | 20:03:24 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear friends, I would like to support this very important report. It rightly says that - The Assembly should condemn the use of spyware by State authorities for political purposes, which amounts to a violation of the right to respect for private life and other rights guaranteed by the European Convention of Human Rights. The use of Pegasus-type spyware should be limited to exceptional situations as a measure of last resort, for genuine and... 10/10/2023 | 17:55:55 Thank you. In the report is written correctly that to counter these challenges to the fundamental values that the Council of Europe aims to uphold, it calls to strengthen and to adhere to these values. This includes fortifying legislation to counter far-right extremism, enhancing education and media literacy, and combating online radicalism. The draft resolution underlines that politicians and political parties should be at the forefront of responses to far-right extremism, both in the public... 26/04/2023 | 20:02:02 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear friends, As the summary of this report clearly says - The implementation of judgments of the European Court of Human Rights is a priority for the Parliamentary Assembly and the Council of Europe. All States must implement, in good faith, and without delay, the final, binding judgments of the European Court of Human Rights. In order to implement Court judgments in a timely and effective manner, States must have effective national co... 25/04/2023 | 17:38:21 Thank you. This is a very important report. As it clearly says in its summary: "This work has arisen in the context of increasing interconnectedness between the roles of the European Court of Human Rights, national constitutional courts and the Court of Justice of the European Union. Given the absence of a clear constitutional hierarchy between these jurisdictions, we are dealing with a sort of 'multi-level constitutionalism'". [The issue of] human rights in Europe is not a three-way street... 24/01/2023 | 18:45:58 Thank you very much. I think this is a very important discussion that we have had tonight, and it is something that will set the pace for the Council of Europe in the forthcoming period. That is why I think, as it is clearly written here, that the solidarity and resilience of the European democracies, the respect for human rights in their adherence to the rule of law are the best guarantors for each other's prosperity, security and peaceful future. Also, we should reaffirm the unity around... 12/10/2022 | 20:35:55 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2) Dear friends, I will be open and direct. I must note that is becoming “fashion” in Europe to attack Hungary and the Government of FIDESZ and Christian Democrats. This is Government that rules the country with big popular support and won 2/3 majority on the last elections in April this year. To win 2/3 after 12 years in power is something rear in the political history. That shows that people support the politics and decision made in Hungary... 11/10/2022 | 20:10:16 Thank you very much. I would like to support the report and I think it is coming at very important time, especially when we are talking about introduction of the Schengen Information System and the possibilities to abuse it. Coming from a country that was subject to visas still until 2008, i.e. we needed visas to enter into the Schengen Area, and I know how it was to wait for hours in front of an embassy to go to obtain visas so you can come, for example, here or to a political meeting or if... 11/10/2022 | 13:07:21 (Undelivered speech, Rules of Procedure Art. 31.2)   Dear friends, As Mr. Papandreou correctly points out in his report - surveys show that an increasing number of people in the Western Balkans, especially amongst the youth, are pessimistic about the prospects of EU accession. The European vision is losing its shine. In its place, ethno-nationalism has resurfaced a very worrying development. What is happening to my country- Macedonia is the best example of this. It was Greece that was vetoing... 22/06/2022 | 11:03:48 Thank you very much. I would like to support the report that was presented today. I think these challenges are still faced in front of us. As you might know, there was a big community mainly in Skopje but as well in Macedonia, that unfortunately, during the the Second World War, mainly most of the people that lived in Skopje, actually over 90 per cent were deported to Treblinka at that time to the death camps. Now there is a small community, but we built a museum of the Holocaust, one of the... 26/04/2022 | 19:26:12 Thank you. Respected members of PACE, The strongest European institution for the protection of human rights is under the jurisdiction of the Council of Europe: the European Court on Human Rights. In the European Court, tens of thousands of citizens from all over Europe are seeking justice that they cannot find in their domestic courts when their basic human rights, the right of freedom of speech, the right of association, the right of national self-identification, and right to use their...
