Question for written answer

Rule 138

 Subject: European Court of Human Rights - stranglehold of George Soros and accession of the European Union

In a report published in February 2020, the European Centre for Law and Justice demonstrated the stranglehold of George Soros and his networks of non-governmental organisations on the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR). It emerges from this investigation that the billionaire is imposing on Europe his ‘open society’ ideology aimed ultimately at creating a ‘new man’, a true individual without identity or points of reference reduced to the role of ultra- consumer.

At the end of 2019, Frans Timmermans, currently Vice-President of the European Commission, co-signed a letter to the Secretary General of the Council of Europe informing her of the European Union's wish to resume negotiations on its accession to the European Convention on Human Rights. This occurred despite the negative opinion handed down by the Court of Justice of the European Union in 2014.

In the light of these latest, serious revelations which seriously tarnish an institution that is already already badly compromised, will the Commission abandon its plans to relaunch these accession negotiations?
