Do Carmo had previously Worked for 15 Years at his Local Municipality of Santo Antonio do Descoberto (Saint Antony the Discovered), before Creating his own News Website named "S.A.D. UnCensored" (withOut Censorship), 4 Years ago.

The Murdered Man's Wife reportedly explained that "her Husband Worked with Recycling, but, in Parallel, Denounced what he Found Wrong in the City", by Publishing in his News Website, "that he had Created on 2013".


According to Local Press reports, already before some years, he had fallen Victim of an Arson Attack against his Car, while, recently, he had Started to receive even "Death Threats", particularly after the On-Line Publication of his 2 or 3 Latest Articles, as well as various Messages in Social Media.


His Latest NewsReports included a virulent Denunciation of the Local Mayor's practices, particularly on unpaid workers and unfulfilled pre-electoral promisses, as well as a Collective Fraud in Local Elections discovered by a Prosecutor in the case of at least 55 Persons. Two ordinary Crimes, including the Killings of 2 Persons, were added, concerning an armed Car Theft, where 1 culprit was shot back by the Police; and a suspected Drug Trafficking-related Murder of a Young Girl.

As do Carmo had explained, his News Website was initialy destinated to publish "News, Opinions and Public Debates on Political Issues affecting the People", (i.e. something not so far away from "Eurofora"s initial aim, mutatis-mutandis). In this case, it included, particularly, "information on what happens in (that) Municipality and Region, ...which reveals the importance and the main points of the Policies" practiced in that area. But he also reportedly Focused on Criticising the current Municipal Authorities.


Several People, (including from the Catholic University of Brasil, etc), expressed their Sorrow and Condoleances to the Family of the Victim at a Special Web link for that purpose, (placed under the Heading  : from "Mourning" to "Nostalgia"), also Asking for an efficient "Investigation", and for "Justice to be done".

Despite the Fact that, as CPJ 's deputy Executive Director Rob Mahoney notes, "More Journalists were Killed, for their Work, Last Year in Brazil than in any other Country in the Americas", nevertheless, the National Authorities, apparently, did Not let this Murder case be Banalized and Pushed aside, Nor Forgotten, but seem to have Started to Take a quite Efficient Action, Fast enough :


While reportedly still Investigating whether that Murder's real "Motivation" was related with the Journalist's "Work or Politics", the current Brazilian Authorities have just Succeeded to Find and immediately Arrest, in only 2 Days Time, at least one member among those Killers' Gang, who had Drived in his Car the Murderer, and holds a Job in the Local Municipality as Civil Servant.


In Comparison, Turkey's Authorities have Not Yet Found Anyone among those Responsible for a Similar Cold-Blood Murder of Dissident Turkish Cypriot Journalist Kutlu Adali, who was also Shot at his Family Home doorstep, in the Occupied Territories of Cyprus, not even almost .. . 20 Years after the Crime (1997-2016), despite a Crystal-clear Condamnation of Ankara by the ECHR in Strasbourg, following also a relevant Intervention of CPJ, (See our related Publications, both at "Cyprus Weekly", initialy, and at "Eurofora", afterwards)...


"Eurofora" naturally Joins the above-mentioned Demands for a full and efficient Investigation, so that all those Responsible for the Murder can be Found and Punished, as well as the Expressions of sincere Condoleances to the Family, Wife and Children, of the Victim, active Member of our World-wide Community of On-line Media Editors and Journalists.

    - "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
