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..

    - "Europe must be liberated from this undermining "wooden talk" of a "unique thought" which hampers democratic debates", stressed incoming EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to Journalists after his official meeting with EU Commission's President, Jose Barroso, at Elysee Palace in Paris

    - "It's precisely because there are not enough Debates, that EU hasn't managed yet to make it clear to European citizens what is really at stake", he added, in an obvious reference to the latest Irish "No" in 2008, after a long series of similar, unprecedented events, from the 1st Majority Abstention to EU Parliament's Elections in 1999, repeated in 2004, to the Dutch and French "No" in 2005, etc.

          In fact, "there is no time to lose for Europe, and that's why we decided to start the French EU Presidency right away, from the first day", he explained, on France's exceptional choice to schedule the usual meeting with EU Commission from the 1st day of the 1st month, instead of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th or even 10th or 11th, as it had been done by others in the Past..    


    - "This is not an easy period, but we shall act with determination, while also listening to Citizens' views", he promised.

    Sarkozy's move came shortly before his opening Speech, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, for the first Public Debate on the Priorities of the French EU Presidency (July - December 2008), and that's one of the reasons for which he significantly opened his EU Council's Chairmanship by welcoming at Elysee palace EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering at first..

    The incoming EU Chairman was replying to Press Questions about rumours that controversial British EU Commissioner on Trade, Mandelson, was alone to drop an invitation to have a working Diner at Elysee palace, together with all other EU Commissioners and the French Government, only because he would have been upset for some critical points made earlier by President Sarkozy in defense of European Agriculture vis-a-vis its Foreign competitors.

    But, as smiling Sarkozy played down Mandelson's reported refusal to debate, saying that he had to visit Marseille for a Ministerial meeting on Trade the next morning, and that "all our British friends are always welcome to taste a nice diner" in France, perhaps at another occasion..

    - "It's urgent to win anew the trust of the People" : Lately, "the European ideal lost its momentum. Since several years, whenever Citizens are questioned on Europe, they react with reserves : They even have .. a tendency to reply "NO".. After this 3rd "No" of a People in some years, there is an Urgency to convince", added French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, after a meeting earlier the same day of all Ministers with EU Commissioners, followed by an interview with Barroso

    "According to recent Polls, only 30% of French people believe that the European construction is a source of hope. It's only a poll, but we all now quite well, that, since 2005, it's dangerous to neglect these alarming signals, as it would be dangerous to treat with contempt the Irish "No", Fillon warned.

    "We all have a common duty to prove to the European Citizens who have doubts, that EU is more useful, more necessary, than ever" : And "that EU can take decisions needed in order to respond to European or Global challenges", the Prime Minister concluded.

    - "We believe, together with President Sarkozy, that EU should open debates on all issues of direct, concrete interest to Citizens", confirmed later to EuroFora the Head of France's governing party (UMP), Patrick Devedjan, after his speech to the European People's party (EPP) Study Days in Paris (2 - 4 July 2008).

    He didn't deny that one of them is Turkey : - "Public Opinion in France is very much unfavorable to Turkey's EU bid, and President Sarkozy has said that several times", he told EuroFora.

    From European Central Bank's controversial policies on Euro's value, to EU Enlargement Strategy, etc., issues of obvious importance to EU Citizens will be plenty, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, before President Sarkozy launches the debates on EU 2008 French chairmanship's priorities on Thursday.

Polls
