Social Democratic Party Senator Alfred Laurentiu Mihai attended the meeting of the General Committee on Justice, Home Affairs and Security Cooperation of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Southeast European Cooperation Process (PA SEECP) in Athens, hosted by the Greek Parliament.
On this occasion, the members of the committee debated the draft report and resolution on “Protection of human rights, in particular the rights of vulnerable persons”.
He declared on his Facebook page:
“I mentioned in my speech in the plenary of the Senate Hall of the Hellenic Parliament during the meeting that we strongly and unequivocally support the defense of human rights and the rights of vulnerable people, and I also mentioned the situation we are facing regarding the wave of refugees in Ukraine following the military aggression of the Russian Federation!
In my speech I also mentioned the efforts Romania is making to support Ukrainian refugees by offering them facilities such as: food, accommodation, free access to the health system, free access to the education system for children and the right to work without a permit for a period of 12 months with the right of extension.
Last but not least, I reminded that the Romanian people show solidarity and humanity towards our Ukrainian neighbors and I conveyed that the Romanian Parliament strongly condemned the aggression of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, considering the attack in Bucha and other cities as war crimes and crimes against humanity!”
