Written explanations of vote

Members can submit a written explanation of their vote in plenary. Rule 194

Commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Romanian revolution of December 1989 (B9-0241/2019)


I voted in favour of this resolution because it pays homage to the victims of the December 1989 revolution, who sacrificed their lives for the cause of ending the totalitarian dictatorship in Romania, and to their families.

Situation of the Uyghur in China (China-cables) (RC-B9-0246/2019, B9-0246/2019, B9-0247/2019, B9-0248/2019, B9-0249/2019, B9-0250/2019)


The ‘China cables’ investigation has unveiled the repressive regime that Uyghurs and other Muslim ethnic minorities are facing at the hands of the Chinese Government. I voted in favour of this resolution, because it strongly condemns the sending of hundreds of thousands of Uyghurs and ethnic Kazakhs to political re-education camps, and it demands EU—targeted sanctions against those Chinese officials responsible for implementing this revolting policy of mass detention.

Situation of human rights and democracy in Nicaragua (RC-B9-0251/2019, B9-0251/2019, B9-0252/2019, B9-0253/2019, B9-0254/2019, B9-0255/2019)


I supported this resolution, because it calls for an immediate end to the repression of freedoms by governmental forces and paramilitaries in Nicaragua. As there has been no progress in resuming a national dialogue, we are calling on the Council to start filling the list of targeted sanctions for those who have committed human rights abuses.

Written questions

Members can submit a specific number of questions to the President of the European Council, the Council, the Commission and the Vice-President of the Commission/High Representative of the Union, for written answer. Rule 138, Annex III
