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.

 In Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs, as the New EU Parliament's President, new EU Commission's President (+ probably EU Council's President, EU Foreign Minister, etc) should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies.

At the heart of the biggest EU Countries, in France and Germany, EU Citizens clearly voted for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe based on Values, declared explicitly incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

This main choice was also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries, such as Austria (cf. promise of a Referendum), Spain (cf. EPP program's reservations vis a vis Enlargment), etc., while EPP Parties won also in Poland, Hungary, Cyprus, etc.

In other Countries, whenever Governing coalitions didn't make these choices or eluded them, continuing to let a Turkish lobby push for its entry into the EU, they paid a high price, and risked to damage Europe, by obliging EU Citizens to massively vote for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to offer a possibility to promise  real change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU :

It's for this obvious reason that British UKIP (IndDem) succeeded now (after many statements against Turkey's EU bid) to become Great Britain's 2nd Party, unexpectedly growing bigger even than the Governing Labour Party, as well as the Liberal party  ! Facts prove that it's not an isolated phenomenon : A similar development occured in the Netherlands, where Geert Wilders "Party for Freedom" (PVV) became also the 2nd biggest in the country, (after EPP), boosting the chances of a politician who had withdrawn in 2004 from an older party "because he didn't agree with their position on Turkey". And in several other EU Member Countries, even previously small parties which now focused on a struggle against Turkey's controversial demand to enter in the EU, won much more or even doubled the number of their MEPs (fex. Bulgaria, Hungary, Greece, etc).

On the contrary, whenever Socialist and oher parties were explicitly or implicitly for Turkey's controversial EU bid, they obviously lost Citizens' votes and fell down to an unprecedented low.

In consequence, EU Citizens clearly revealed their main political choices, in one way or another : They voted to change for less Bureaucracy, but more Politics and Values in a Europe really open to EU Citizens, but without Turkey's controversial EU bid.

Recent political developments are obviously different from the old political landscape which existed in the Past of 1999-2004, when Socialists based on Turkish 1% vote governed undisputed not only in Germany, but also in the UK, Greece and elsewhere, France followed old policies decided when it had been divided by "cohabitation", before the 3 "NO" to EU  Referenda since May 2005, before Merkel, before Sarkozy, etc.... before the surprises of 7 June 2009 new EU Elections.

If the current candidates to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, OK.

Otherwise, Europe must find new candidates, really motivated and able to implement these democratic choices of the People.

The beginning of crucial, final Decisions are scheduled for the 1st EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg, in the middle of July, and they could be completed towards the October session, when Lisbon Treaty's fate will have been fixed.

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 ?
