CoE Vote, Officials +Son to EF for Independent Public Enquiry on Web-Journalist Daphne Murder soon

Written by ACM

*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- After EU Parliament's recent call for an "independent International public Inquiry" on the Brutal Murder of Web Journalist Daphne Caruana-Galizia in Malta, (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentvotesinternationalqueryondaphnemurder.html),

+ it's Now also the CoE's PanEuropean Organisation for Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, which has just added another Call, "to Establish, ...within 3 Months, an Independent Public Enquiry" on that affair, with a Resolution largely Voted Today.



CoE's Resolution also Slamed "False Claims" by the Socialist Government of Malta, "about Progress in the Investigation", and, on the Contrary, reminded them their "Obligations, under Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights", to Protect Human Life.

- There is Nothing serious done in that so-called Enquiry yet, and, if things stay like this, then, even the simple Executors risk to be Released soon, on August 4, without ever finding who masterminded and requested the Murder, Warned Today "Eurofora" the 2nd Son of the Victim, Andrew, who is himself a Journalist too.   



=> Meanwhile, Experienced CoE Assembly's Secretary General, Wojciech Sawicki, Replying earlier to an "Eurofora" Question, did not exclude the Possibility for the competent CoE's Rapporteur, Pieter Omtziegt, to eventually try to act, if necessary, as an Independent Investigator in that Brutal Murder case, particularly after EU Parliament's recent relevant call, followed now even by PACE's additional push.

 - There are, at least, 2 relevant Precedents, mutatis-mutandis, concerning another CoE's Rapporteur, Dick Marty, Swiss Liberal MEP, in the Famous Cases of Serbian Prisoners allegedly Killed in order to Sell their Organs in an atrocious Traffick, between Kosovo and Albania, reportedly monitored by a Turkish "Doctor", and of the so-called "CIA Reddition Flights", with Secret Prisons, etc., against Suspects cought all over the World, Sawicki reminded.

- But, it's also true that Marty had himself a personal experience in such matters, since he was Attorney himself, he cautioned.


+ At any case, soon afterwards, it's also CoE's competent Rapporteur on Daphnes' Murder himself, Dutch ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Pieter Omtziegt, who, Replying earlier to a relevant "Eurofora"s Question, has told us that he could really act to "Help" such an Independent Enquiry.

Meanwhile, the "Socialist" Government of Malta Narrowly Escaped, at the Last Minute, a Collective Amendment asking to "Open a Monitoring procedure", "until Concerns are addressed in a satisfactory manner".

Earlier, in PACE's Committee for Legal Affairs and Human Rights, "a Large Majority" of MEPs had initially Voted in favour of that Sanction, observed the Committee's President, Icelandish MEP Sunna Aevarsdottir.

But, now, another "Socialist" MEP from the notoriously Collapsing SPD Party in Germany, Franck Schwabe, currently Chair of PACE's "Socialist" Group, intervened claiming that such a Sanction would be "Too Much" for a Country like Malta, fitting only to Countries like Turkey, etc. Curiously, such an Important Issue had been "Cornered" in PACE's Agenda, between a Last-Minute added Debate and Vote on the "Burning" matter of Russian MEP's Credentials, and the Anouncement of the Results of the Election of a New Secretary General for the CoE (See: ..., etc), resulting in an Exceptionaly and Abnormaly Low Number of Participating MEPs, so that a Sudden Displacement of Only ...15 (out of a Total of several Hundreds !), was enough in order to make evaporate the "Majority" in that Vote, at least for the Time being...

However, given that Long List of "Concerns" already denounced by MEPs now, (f.ex., among others, also : "No News on ..Inquiry's Progress","Conflicts of Interests" for "Magistrates", "Conflict of Interest" for "the Investigating Police Officer", "the Inquiring Magistrate ...Removed by the Prime Minister", No Investigation on a Minister who reportedly had Contacts with the Suspects, allegations that a Policeman Informed the Suspects Before they were arrested, "False Claims" about "Progress in the investigation", "Failure to request possible Evidence from German Authorities", "MisLeading Statements by persons close to the Prime Minister", etc)

...it's not obvious at all that there might, eventually, be any Other Chance for Valetta to Escape from CoE's "Monitoring", unless those Problems are Fixed asap.

Pierre Pflimlin's visionary line : Honouring the Memory of the man who wanted to build Europe on the Mountains, based on Spirit !



One of EuroFora's best inspirators is naturally Pierre Pflimlin :

We had a chance to personally meet the dynamic and experienced former President of both EU Parliament and CoE's Assembly, France's Prime Minister and Strasbourg's Mayor, only at his 90th anniversary, during an Historic speech at the Council of Europe, exceptionally full of people.

But his energetic figure looked more like a youngster of 19 years old, eager to win the Olympic games !..

Visionary, 2P was, from many points of view :

His daughter, Antoinette, Artist-decorator, and Senator Jung, President of a group of friends, confirmed us an Historian's revelation, that Pflimlin had initially the idea to build all European institutions (EU Parliament, Council of Europe, European Court of Human Rights, etc) at the spectacular heights of Oberhausbergen hills, with an eye-catching view of both French Vosges and German Black Forest Mountains, in the midst of a Forest : A real vision to create a brand New European Headquarters with a big ambition !

But, it seems, that "someone in Brussels" found that picture, precisely, too big for his taste, and threw a spanner on the works...

Pflimlin stroke back a Decade ago, at his Historic 1997 farewell speech :

He urged Europeans to find another, more substantial way, to lift Europe to more important Heights in Future :

- "On which basis can we imagine the birth of a great Europe ?", he asked.

"Certainly an Economic basis ! A solid market economy, meeting also the needs of social justice. A Political basis : Europe must become a strong Political Power, able to influence World's changes, naturally for Peace."

"But I believe that the essential foundation of a greater Europe should be of Spiritual nature : .... The great pacific Revolutions were Spiritual Victories" : They expressed "People's main motivation to live in a society with our Values of Liberty, Democracy, respect for Human Dignity".

"Then, the roadmap is ready : Yes, the foundation of the unity for a large Europe is the spiritual heritage, inspired by Christian Humanism and the Humanism of Renaissance, of Enlightenment, from which emerged a Civilisation focused on the Human person".

"Here is the task to be accomplished. It's very difficult".

"The Time approaches when I'll have to pass over the torchlight. God willing, this torch should enlighten the path of those who are going to build, tomorrow, the great Europe, marked by this Spirit".


(Extract from the Book "Pierre Pfilmin : Alsacian and European", 2007. Texts by Senator Louis Jung, by the long-time f. Director of Strasbourg's Newspaper DNA, Alain Howiller, and by f. EU Parliament's Press Director, Paul Collowald : See dedications, hand-written by the authors, the day the book for Pflimlin's 100th Aniversary was launched at Strasbourg's Press Club and European Parliamentary Association's headquarters, 13 April 2007).




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 ?
