Denis Mukwege, laureate of the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought 2014

Denis Mukwege is the laureate of the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought 2014, following Tuesday's decision by EP President Martin Schulz and the political group leaders.  Mukwege will be invited to Strasbourg on 26 November to receive the award during the plenary session.

Announcing Mukwege as the 2014 laureate, President Schulz said: "The Conference of Presidents decided unanimously to award Dr Denis Mukwege from Democratic Republic of Congo the Sakharov Prize for his fight for protection especially of women."
 
In many armed conflicts around the world, rape is used as a weapon of war, but Mukwege decided to help victims in his country. The 59-year-old gynaecologist founded the Panzi Hospital in Bukavu in 1998, when a war took place in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where today he still treats victims of sexual violence who have sustained serious injuries.

Sagaidīšanas uzruna
 
 

Sveicināti Eiropas Parlamenta Cilvēktiesību apakškomitejas (DROI) tīmekļa vietnē!
 
Apakškomitejas galvenajos pienākumos ietilpst visi jautājumi, kas saistīti ar cilvēktiesībām, minoritāšu aizsardzību un demokrātisko vērtību veicināšanu, bet tās ģeogrāfiskā darbības joma aptver arī valstis ārpus Eiropas Savienības robežām.
 
DROI apakškomitejas galvenie mērķi ir nodrošināt, lai cilvēktiesību ievērošana būtu viens no Eiropas Savienības ārpolitikas galvenajiem apsvērumiem, un iestrādāt cilvēktiesību aspektu visās politikas jomās.
 
Viena no būtiskākajām mūsu darba izpausmēm ir ikgadējā Saharova balva par domas brīvību, ko katru gadu decembrī piešķir personām vai organizācijām, kas cīnās par cilvēktiesībām. Tāpat mēs cenšamies, cik drīz iespējams, reaģēt uz cilvēktiesību pārkāpumiem visā pasaulē, dodot iespēju tikt sadzirdētiem tiem, kas skarti visvairāk.
 
Mēs ļoti labprāt pieņemam un izmantojam informāciju un aktualitātes no cilvēktiesību aizstāvjiem, pilsoņiem un NVO. Mūsu komitejas sanāksmju tiešraides tiek straumētas, un tās var skatīties internetā. Pagaidām DROI apakškomitejas ziņojumi (to projekti), grozījumi vai atzinumi ir pieejami tikai Ārlietu komitejas (AFET) tīmekļa vietnē, jo galīgais balsojums notiek AFET komitejā.
