At any case, it's a Fact that Both spoke to "Eurofora", on Brief but Topical Issues, this Evening, at an Extension of the Historic Reims' Cathedral, where Joan of Arc had notoriously struggled to Coronate the King of France who would succeed to Liberate the Country from a former English Army Invasion and Occupation of its Western Regions, inside the prestigious "Palace of Tau".

They were all Invited by the New President of all French Region's union, Philippe Richert from Strasbourg, (and recently Elected as the 1st President of the New, "Great East" Region of Alsace-Lorraine and Champagne/Ardennes, Comp. several Richert's replies to various "Eurofora"'s Questions, both in the Past and Nowadays), Together with the President of the French Senate, Gerard Larcher, (another Body with significant Territorial bases, that De Gaulle had notoriously wished to Transform, already as Early as since Back on 1969, with a Popular Referendum, into something Similar to a fully-fledged Federal Council, mainly Composed by reinforced Regions),

in what will be, Tomorrow, Thursday, 29 September 2016, not just a 12th Annual Convention of the Long-time pre-existing former "Association of French Regions" ("AFR"), but rather the 1st Annual Convention of a brand New "Regions of France" ("RoF") Stronger Union, freshly emerging, with a reNewed Popular Mandate's Legitimacy, from the Recent, December 2015 Regional Elections, just after a partialy Controversial, but Important Reform of the Regional DeCentralisation decided by the current Government in France, (Comp. relevant "Eurofora" NewsReports, f.ex., at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/franceregionelelectionsrepublicanswithgreensorfnrightistsforstrasbourg.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/sarkozyautonomousalternativewinsregions.html).

In substance, Prime Minister Valls, spoke to "Eurofora" about, apparently a Possible Fresh Look at Crucial, Long-Term Strategy Choices on Funding High-Tech Projects at Strasbourg's Metropolitan-Regional area, particularly After some relevant, New Local/Regional Developments, (See our specific NewsReports at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/frenchprimeministervallsonhightechfunding.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/frenchprimeministeroninnovationprojects.html).

While President Wauquiez, after personaly Saluting "Eurofora", stressed, with a smile, in front of us and certain other participants of Tonight's event, that, as a matter of general Principle of Democracy, the People should Send Back Home any previously elected Political Representatives who might have Not fullfiled their Pre-electoral Promisses at all...

Inevitably, this matched a Topical link with what appears to be one of the "Hot" Issues of this 2016 "RoF" Convention : I.e. that of a Change of Regions' public Funding, (particularly needed Now, given an important Extension of their Competences), from central State Grants, due to be still Decided Each Year in Paris, towards a Part of the VAT fiscal revenue, almost automatically re-conducted accross the years :


- Will it be practicaly Left, for Final Decision, to a Next National President and Government, due to emerge from the forthcoming 2017 Presidential and Parliamentarian Elections, or shall it be really Decided, in a Legaly-Binding way (at least for 2017), by the Current, still on-going President and Government, during the next 7 or 8 Months ?

Philippe Richert and several others Prefer the 2nd, obviously more Certain, Option, (also for a Better Previsibility and Long-Term Planning of Private and public potential Economic actors and Investors), but, as he Stressed this Evening, "there is a Lot of Work to do, already Tomorrow", i.e. during the All-Day long 1st Annual Convention of the brand New "Regions of France" union, which will be held at the Convention Center of the City of Reims : a real "Symbol", as all Speakers noticed for that Choice of such an Historicaly prestigious location.

This Evening's exceptional Gathering, symbolically took place in the "Palace of Tau", (from the Greek Alphabet's name of the Letter "T", which corresponds to the Shape of that former Episcopal Building that culminates at an Historic Chapel), where used to stay those who were Preparing to be coronated, at the adjacent Cathedral of Reims, as New Kings of France soon...

 Joan of Arc's World Famous "vision" and struggle for the coronation of the future Liberator of France at Reims' Cathedral, at the Beginning of the 15th Century, eve of the European "Renaissance" era, was, in fact, preceded by an almost 1 Thousand Years' Older Tradition, steming from Saint Remis' bapteme rite for the Frank King Clovis at 496, at the nearby Reims' more Ancient "Basilica", that she aspired to ReVive anew, obviously pointing at France's and, by a Now very Topical (as many Recent Elections and other Popular Votes throughout the EU clearly indicate) relevant extension, all Europe's fundamentaly Christian roots.

 However, Reims' Historic Symbol is much Wider : It is also Linked with Germany and a larger European Cultural Heritage issue, including some very Topical new offrsprings' potential, as is clearly Indicated, inter alia also by the Fact that visionary Alternative .. Rock Music Group from Germany "Eloy" (from World-Famous, Visionary Science-Fiction Writer H.G. Wells' "Time Machine" landmark Book), has already published a "Joan d' Arc" Video-Song in the recent Past, and is even Now preparing a Bigger, Full Version development Project on that throughout 2016, (i.e. at the 1520th Anniversary from the Initial, Historic Consecration of Clovis at Reims, as Early as since back on 496 : Comp. Supra)...

 After also the Recent Tragic ISIS' Terrorist Attack this Summer 2016 even against a defenseless Old Priest inside Saint-Etienne de Rouvray nearby Christian Church, which, by a Timely Coincidence had been Built almost at the Same Century as Reims' Cathedral, (Cf: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/churchattackforeseen.html , mutatis-mutandis, reminding that Burned Church shown at the original "Eloy"'s Video-Song on "Jeanne d' Arc" : Comp. Supra), there is certainly something in Reims' European Cultural History or Europe able to Speak to all French and most European Regions and People throughout all our Continent Today...

 The Participation, Tomorrow, here in Reims, at RoF's Annual 2016 Convention, f.ex. of Mecklenburg-Pomerania German Region representative in Brussels' EU's HQ, Dr. Reinhard Boest, (together with mainstram French MEP Renaud Muselier, Delegated President of PACA Region of Marseilles, and President of ARF's "Europe" Committee), an area where took place the 2007 "G-8" Global Heads of State/Government Summit at Heiligenam (Comp. f.ex. "Eurofora" co-Founder's NewsReport from that Summit, published then at "TCWeekly"+), and from which Region stems both Chancelor Angie Merkel and Germany's President Gauck, (among other Topical Symbolic particularities related to the Historic Re-Unification of Europe after the Fall of Berlin War, but also to much more Recent Issues), is another Symbolic sign pointing at a Similar European Direction.

They voted to "freeze" UK Government's draft to put People in jail for 42 Days on "anti-terrorist" suspicion without charge, or they abstained. Don't they look suspect ?
-------------------------

CoE's debate on UK controversy stirs PanEuropean check of anti-terror suspects' imprisonment

Former Leftists of the Sixties would boil in hot water if they heard PACE's debate on the controversial 42 days detention without charge, currently drafted by the British Government :

A "Socialist" Government, a Socialist PACE Rapporteur and a Socialist Chair of PACE's Legal Committee, opposed a .. "Conservative" amendment (supported by .. Liberals, Democrats, etc), to freeze the measure, in order to protect Citizens' Freedom, by "waiting" until CoE's Venice Committee checks its conformity with Human Rights' principles.

"Left"'s support to Conservative-Lib.Dem's criticism, wasn't enough to obtain a majority, nor to make things as they were back in the good old days, when "Left" and "Right" had a clear meaning, as "liberty" and "restrictions"...

Conservatives and most Democrats were joined by the Left in voting for the "freeze", as well as Liberal Paul Rowen, while Socialist MEP Ivan Popescu, an experienced MEP from Ukraine (PACE Member since 1996-2008) abstained. But most Socialists, added to a few Liberals and EPP's Right, voted against.

Fortunately, someone inside PACE had the wise idea to shorten the Debate for less than 1 Hour, and put it on the Agenda only at the end of an exceptionally busy day, towards the end of the Evening, when most MEPs had already gone to taste wins and foods at various Receptions all around Strasbourg's "European" area : As a result, not even 42 MEPs weren't present..

Socialist Lord Tomlinson accused the leaders of the PanEuropean Assembly, in its highest body : the "Bureau", to "lack wisdom" by deciding to hold a Debate on an issue that neither the Socialist Chair of the Legal Committee, nor its Socialist "reluctant Rapporteur", did "not want to do", ...

Finally, everybody (critics and supporters alike) was happy to agree, in substance, that the controversial measure "may" gravely violate Human Rights, and therefore, PACE asked Legal Experts of Venice Commission to check UK Government''s plans.

But this might take more than .. 42 Days to do, since PACE's Rapporteur asked the Experts to enlarge their study in a PanEuropean comparison of all that is happening on "anti-terrorism" legislation in 47 CoE Member Countries, including Russia, Turkey and Azerbaidjan..

Bad lack : "The existing 28 days’ detention without charge in the UK is, in comparison with other CoE member countries, one of the most extreme : In Turkey, the period is 7,5 days, in France 6 days, in Russia 5 days, and in .. the U.S. and Canada just 2 and 1 days respectively", denounced Democrat MEP Ms WOLDSETH from Norway..

"Numerous respected human rights organisations, including Liberty and Human Rights Watch, have expressed serious concern" "The proposed legislation ...could easily lead to extensive abuses. ...Detention for 42 days means six weeks in which one is taken away from one’s family, friends, home and livelihood only to be let off without being charged. That will destroy lives and isolate communities", she added.

- "3 years ago, the UK Government sought to increase the period of pre-charge detention from 14 days to 90 days. Not long before that, it had been only 7 days. There was a vigorous debate ...and a ...compromise was reached of 28 days. We have to ask whether there are proper safeguards in place to extend the period to 42 days. I suggest that there are fatal flaws", reminded British Conservative Clappison.

- "What sort of society holds someone in detention for 42 days and does not have to tell the person who is in prison why they are there, or explain the suspicions that arose and led to their detention? What sort of society believes that that is the way to treat its citizens? That is an appalling injustice, ...A 42-day detention period will not make the UK safer. Instead, it will be the first step to giving in to terrorists; it is saying that we are prepared to sacrifice our democratic rights and the principles for which we have stood for centuries", criticized British Liberal Michael Hanckock

"Comments made ...by Norwegian delegates are unfortunate", replied British Socialist MEP Ms.Curtis-Thomas, accusing them to "besmirch the reputation of our police force, which is one of the Best in the World", as she said, believing that "there are significant safeguards ...to ensure that individuals are not subjected to unlawful detention"

curtis

PACE "has serious doubts whether ...the draft legislation are in conformity with the ...case-law of the European Court of Human Rights. A lack of ..safeguards may lead to arbitrariness, resulting in breaches of ... liberty and ...right to a fair trial". PACE "is particularly concerned that: ..the judge ..may not be in a position to examine whether there exist reasonable grounds for suspecting that the arrested person has committed an offence;"; that "... representation by a lawyer may be inappropriately restricted or delayed;" that "information on the grounds for suspicion of a person ...may be unduly withheld.. ;" that this "may give rise to arrests without the intention to charge;", and; in general, that "prolonged detention without proper information on the grounds for arrest may constitute inhuman treatment", says Klaus De Vries' Report, adopted with 29 votes against zero.

vries

Records don't say if it took him 42 Days to draft his Report, but, at least, he knew why...

Polls

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 ?
