AF447 mysterious Brazil Crash Victims Families to speak out on 1st Anniversary without Findings

The French, German and Italian Associations of Victims' Families of the AF 447 Deadly Airplane Crash at the Brazilian Coasts in 2009, will hold a Press Conference at the Anniversary of the tragic event on Monday, 31st of May in Paris, to take stock of 1 Year of fruitless and partly hampered Investigations, (which didn't yet manage neither to establish the Causes of the Deadliest Airliner incident since the 2001 crash of American Airlines Flight 587 in New York, nor to find most of the Debris and bodies from the Mysterious crash), and to discuss recent controversial developments, (f.ex. the latest Maritime searches, BEA's Draft Report, Defence Ministry's reported findings, financial reparations, etc).

The event will be followed by an intimate, closed Ceremony in hommage of the victims at Vincennes' Park the next day, Tuesday 1st of June, organized for the Families, during which a Memorial is due to be erected.

Created between September and November 2009, the French Association "Mutual Help and Solidarity AF447 (recognized by the Ministry of Justice, and able to intervene in the Criminal process), the German Association HIOP AF447, and the Italian Association "Comitato 31 Maggio", have chosen Me Jakubowicz as their Lawyer.

A wide Victims' range from 33 Nationalities, includes 145 Europeans, mainly from France, Germany and Italy, (72 French, 26 German, 9 Italian, 6 Swiss, 5 British, 4 Hungarians, 3 Slovaks, 3 Irish, 3 Norwegians, 2 Polish, 2 Spanish, 1 Austrian, 1 Belgian, 1 Dutch, 1 Danish, 1 Swedish, 1 Estonian, 1 Romanian, 1 Croat, 1 Russian, 1 Icelandish), 59 Brazilians, and 22 from various other parts of the World, (9 Chinese, 3 Morrocan, 2 from the USA, 1 Canadian, 1 Argentinian, 1 South Korean, 1 South African,  1 Philippino, 1 Gabonese, 1 Turkish-Iraqi, 1 Lebanese, etc).

A controversy between recent (May 2010) findings of the French Army submaeine "Emeraud" and its traditional Accidents' Investigation Office (BEA), about the possible location of the mysteriously lost Airplane's main debris, from which less than 3% were collected in the middle of Atlantic Ocean's deep rift, according to some among Victims' Families, added to questions raised.

Speculations seem to diverge between a probably Accidental cause, closer to weather conditions and technical airplane management, and a possibly Criminal cause, closer to an undiscovered yet incident, which might explain why 2 (Spanish and Brazilian) Airplanes had reported Fire glows, while the Blackboxes' soundtrack indicated that the AF 447 was obliged to deviate from its normal course, starting  a  U-turn Southwards, with each blackbox distant from the other, (as. f.ex. in case of explosion), as well as why those Debirs and/or Bodies of the Victims which were recovered, were found in 2 separate groups, (and partly damaged according to some reports).

Medias have also repported several facts indicating that during the initial attempts to investigate the causes of the deadly incident, (which notoriously occured far away from Europe, the distance delaying  the arrival of European enquiry teams on the spot), the Brazilian Authorities pushed to end the search earlier than expected, and didn't let the European (mainly French) investigators have an immediate and direct access to the part of debris and/or bodies that Brazilian ships had found close to their Coasts.

However, a strategic Brittish Military AirBase was close to the area of the incident, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, from where the Allizes had monitored, during the 2nd World War, the passage of trans-Continental Civil and Military Airflights, as well as Ship transports, etc.

Among the "notable victims", according Wikipedia, were European Top Executives for Latin America from French Michelin and German ThyssenKtupp big enterprises, a BNP Paribas consultant from Luxembourg who was also a popular Brazil's young Prince from the extinguished Royal family who had helped his Father's 1st attempt to restaure the Throne in Brazilian Politics by a Referendum held the previous decade, (etc), but also an harpist provisionaly employed in a Provincial music band with links to Turkish promoters (present in America) of the Iraqi "Turkmen culture", (from the Kurdish oil-producing Kirkuk area, partly revendicated by Turkey and recently hit by non-elucidated Mass killings from Bomb Terrorism).

The boarding had been done at the Brazilian Rio de Janeiro Airport, and the Airplane was lost shortly after flying accross the Brazilian Coastline, in the middle of the Atlantic ocean, heading towards Europe.

Paradoxically, the former European (Franco-British) Concorde High-Tech Supersonic Airplane, (until a controversial decision to abandon it was taken after a non-elucidated Crash at the lift-off from Paris on July 2000), had already served for many years for the Rio de Janeiro - Paris trans-Continental AirFlights in a more efficient, much faster and safer way than Airbus..

     The High-Tech, brand new Crisis' management Center (CMC) inaugurated Wednesday by French Minister Bernard Kouchner, fits well EU's Humanitarian and Security-Defence aims, revealed a gathering of the largest Group of MEPs (EPP) organised in Paris these days, to prepare the debate on French EU Presidency's priorities (July - December 2008), that President Nicolas Sarkozy will present next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

        Due to face a large spectrum of Crises : from Humanitarian (f.ex. Natural Catastrophes, evacuation of Civilians or rapatriation of expats, populations exposed to Hunger and/or risky Sanitary conditions, etc), to various consequencies of Terrorist threats, Armed conflicts, or of Peace-keeping operations, etc, and joining Geopolitics with Diplomacy, CMC is able to deal with urgencies in real time anywhere in the world, by concentrating qualified Experts and impressive High-Tech equipment (i.e. Giant Computer Screens working in parallel, Visio-conferences, Satellite connections, etc).




        Kouchner stressed that "Humanitarian and Political considerations can co-exist in real practice, if each one respects its independence", and, speaking to EuroFora, underlined his intention to have special representatives in "Strategic" locations, creating a "Network", open particularly to European cooperation.


        - "We must fill the gap in Europe's Civilian and Military capacities", declared earlier at Matignon, French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, while EU Commissioners met with their counterparts among French Ministers.

        This point was at the focus of European People Party's "'Study Days" in Paris, from 2 to 4 July 2008, entitled  : "For a Safer Europe", with a central Debate on EU's Security and Defence policies, where EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, French Minister of Defence Herve Morin, and the Chairman of EU's Defence Committee, MEP Karl von Vogaw, spoke before meeting with Sarkozy, Wednesday afternoon.

    - "We need specifically European systems, including, f.ex. Satellite networks, etc", stressed the experienced Chairman Karl von Vogaw, speaking after the meeting with President Sarkozy to European Journalists from EuroNews, EuroPolitique and EuroFora.
    - And there where "European forces are already gathered, (f.ex. in Cyprus, Balkans, Lebanon, etc), if new operations started, I'd prefer to see them under European command in Future", he added, in reply to questions on how to overcome problems raised by a 3rd Countries as Turkey.

    Vogaw presented earlier, at EPP's plenary, a comprehensive Report on EU's Security and Defence policy, with a strong High-Tech component (including Satellites, UAV, protected Telecoms, Strategic Air and Sea Transports, Space assets, etc), sharp references to Political will and Historic necessities, while also stressing that EU must overcome the divide between Civilian and Military research and activities, making "a close cooperation between Civilian and Military means" a "specific" mark of Europe.

    The experienced Top MEP, after helping to build the "EuroZone", as a long-time Chairman of EU Parliament's Economic Committee, has recently started to chair a brand new "Security and Defence Committee", aiming to build European Defence, as the 2nd task of his life, as he told earlier to EuroFora.


     The Committee, chaired by Vogaw, will hear, next week in Strasbourg an Experts' view about on the French EU Chairmanship's priorities in ESDP on Wednesday, before President Sarkozy's plenary debate, exceptionally on Thursday.


2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
