Head of Political Affairs Committee reacts to the Manchester attack

“It is with great sadness and shock that we learn of last night’s terrible attack in Manchester,” said Mogens Jensen (Denmark, SOC), Chair of the Political Affairs and Democracy Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE).

“Nothing justifies such atrocity. My thoughts are with the families of the victims. We stand together with them. Only last week, ministers at the Council of Europe adopted guidelines on the protection of victims of terrorist acts. They should not have been needed so soon.”
