And with that, tonight's sitting comes to an end.
MEPs are back tomorrow at 08.00 GMT, when they will be debating petitions received by MEPs during 2015.
They will then debate and vote on this month's three motions on human rights cases.
At the voting session, they will decide whether to approve new EU emergency powers to suspend visa-free travel rights.
Approval of the new powers is seen as a crucial step before granting visa-free travel to Ukraine and Georgia.
