*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- With an Official Call on Belarus, launched Today from Strasbourg, CoE's Leadership urged for "Respectful Dialogue" , among the Goverment and Civil Society, including Dissidents, while, Paradoxically, this Same Day, an alleged Leader of Most Opponents to Belarusian long-time President Lukashenko, Tikhanofskaya, speaking from Abroad, Explicitly launched an "Ultimatum", with an "Order" for the Head of State to "Resign" in "13 Days", while Also, reportedly, Asking from Everyone, including the Country's Law and Order Agents, to "Declare in Public" that they "doN"t Back the Regime", Threatening them that, Otherwise, they would be considered and treated as "Accomplices to (State) Terrorism" !

--------------------------------

 - In a "Joint Statement" on Belarus, the Chairman of CoE's Highest Political body, that of its Committee of Ministers, Greek Minister for European affairs, Miltiadis Varvitsiotis, Together with CoE Parliamentary Assembly's President, Rik Daems from Belgium, and CoE's Secretary General, Marija Peicinovic-Buric, a former vice-Prime Minister from Coatia, "Condemn(ing), in the Strongest possible terms, Any further use of Violence", "Firmly recall(ed)", "in particular", "that there is a Need to Start Genuine and Respectful Dialogue, with the Representatives of Civil Society, in view of the Constitutional Reform, long-Awaited by the Whole Country", "with the Participation of All, Including those who Oppose the Authorities", offering CoE's eventual "Help" on the "Way to Genuine Reforms", as they said that they were "Stand(ing) Ready" to do asap.

Alexander Lukashenko, re-Elected as President of Belarusia since the 1990ies, who was Officially attributed a Landmark Win also on the Latest, August 2020 Elections, with more than 80% of the Votes, against Only a little-bit over 10% for Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, (who soon Fled Abroad, at the Neighbouring Baltic State of Lithuania), has reportedly Initiated, Recently, a New, due to be Transparent, Constitutional Reform process, allegedly Open to Any Citizens' Participation, as well as to Public Dialogue, also with the Country's Authorities, f.ex. on Courts, Law and Order staff, etc, including even on the "Hot" Issue of Eventual New Elections in the foreseable Future, and, (while apparently Trying, at least Initialy, to Drop any irregular "Collective" as such, consisting of Opponents who Triggered 2 Months-long recuring Public Demonstrations at Minsk and Other Cities, sometimes provoking troubles and/or threatening worse (See Infra). Nevertheless, Lukashenko, these Days, went as far as to Even Visit, Personaly, in Prison, some among those considered to be the regime's most Harsh Opponents, (as, f.ex., Babariko, a former Banker accused of Fraud, but allegedly Popular would-be Candidate to the Latest Presidential Election, who reportedly appeared Glad after that meeting, while one of his closest Assistants was immediately Freed and spoke on TV, precisely, about Dialogue with the Government, etc). The move was Backed also by Russia, which reportedly incited also to associate even more Dissidents in such Debates, But wasn't of the likes of an alleged "Hard" Core, of irreductible Opponents, pursuing Other Agendas...

In that Context, Svetlana's Tikhonovskaya's reported Publication, Today, at the "Telegram" Web Network, often used by Dissidents, looks Surprizing, because it, apparently, pursues a Different Aime from that Officially adopted by the CoE, and, most of all, with very Harsh Methods, absolutely Contradicting the "Respectful Dialogue" arbored by the CoE (Comp. Supra) :

- Indeed, Tikhanovskaya reportedly Launched, Today, an Explicit ..."Ultimatum" (sic !) against the Belarusian Government, Boasting that the Opposition would be "More Powerful than the Regime", and Giving the "Order" for President Lukashenko to Immediately "Resign", in a Tight "execution Deadline" of "13 Days" Only (sic !), Blackmailing with Threats that, Otherwise, After "October 25", She will Trigger a "General Strike, in All Enterprises", and "Block All Roads" (re-sic !!), "Stop Selling to Public Entities", with "Everybody going ... to the Streets", (etc), so that the whole Country would "Paralyse" !

+ Moreover, in the Meantime, she Asks from All those Working for the Government and/or the Law and Order Services, to "Declare, in Public, that he Stops Backing the Regime" of the Country, Because, Otherwise, "WhoEver has Not Yet Decided to Pass on the Side" of her Opposition, will be Considered as ..."Accomplice to Terrorism" (sic !), since she Dismissed the Belarusian Government as mere "State Terrorism"..., (Obviously Abusing, perhaps withOut Knowing it, in Fact, of Similar Oppressive Methods to Notoriously Anti-Democratic Powers, as, f.ex., that of Turkey, whose so-called "Anti-Terrorism" Legislation, Abusively Slanders as alleged "Terrorist", and Hits with Harsh Measures, practicaly Any Critical Dissident Thinking Differently)...

=> So Brutal Personal Threats, at Nowadays' Context in Belarus, Inevitably Become, irresponsibly, Very Dangerous, against Not Only All those Civil Servants and/or Law and Order-Keeping Agents, so Massively Threatened, But ...Even to the Detriment of their entire Families, Old People, Wives and Children included, since Mrs Tikhonovskaya's Opposition Notoriously has, Recently, Launched Many Repeated Operations of Totaly and Shamelessly Violating any "Personal Data" Protection, by Systematicaly Hanting and Spying on Any Information Targeting Civil Servants and/or Law and Order Agents' Individual Person and Family, (including, Particularly, Even ...Photos of their Private Life with their Wife and Children, as those "Dissidents" own Propaganda Reveals, when they Boast at the Internet of their "Exploits"), so that, When, Afterwards, those Abusive "Opposition" Fractions, Massively Unleash, Scandalouslly ... Publishing at the World Wide Web, their Victims' Name, Private/Family Adress and Phones, etc., Together with their Elders, Wife, even Children, etc. Names, Photos, Whereabouts, Occupations, Jobs or Schools, etc, to the point that Many, among those Unfortunate People, have reportedly, Been Already Targetted, Bullied, Insulted, Slandered, and Brutaly Threatened by Various Anonymous Thugs, (f.ex. to be Agressed at the Street, Hit, Raped, etc), with UnPredictable Consequences..., as Many Victims' Testimonies, Various Medias, Public Services, and Even Web Networks (reportedly Trying to Erase from the Internet such Massive Aggressions, Published by Lots of Thousands !), have Recently Denounced, Revealing a Real daily "Terror", (Sometimes, even against the Wrong Persons, and, at any case, Including Many Innocent and Fragile Victims : Comp. Supra)...

+ Such Sly and Odious Threats, also Explain and Show the Double, Manifold Gravity, in Fact, of those Recent Brutal Aggressions (sometimes of Even 2, 3, 4 or 5 Cowards Attacking just 1 Person Simultaneously, as Various Videos at the Internet Reveal), Seeking to ...Destroy the Personal Protection Face "Masks", SafeGuarding against Infections by the Deadly Virus, several Law and Order Agents, taken as Targets by Numerous Relentless so-called "Demonstrators" (See http://www.eurofora.net/forum/index.php/topic,955.msg1274.html#msg1274, etc) :

 belarus__1_aggressed_by_4_or_5_tearing_awary_antivirus_mask_dissidents_video__eurofora_screenshot_400

Indeed, as certain Technical Videos Shamelesly Reveal, it's enough to just Unveal even a Small Part of a Human Head, in order to Find, via some Sophisticated I.A. Softwares, (f.ex. found at some Technocratic Hubs as USA's "Socialist" California, etc), in just a Few Seconds, the Personal Identity of a Targeted Victim, Together with that of his Family, including Elders, Wife, Children, their Names, Adresses, Occupations, Schools, Photos, etc)...

=> So that, in Fact, the Real "Big Brother" of Orwell's "1984" World Famous "Hell", Risks to be Hidding, Nowadays, (as the Concrete Example of Belarus just Revealed), No more inside Any National State, But, rather, and much More Dangerously, among some, (Only Apparently "Anodynous"), Civil Society informal Secret Global Networks.

    The recent paradox of freezing EU Talks with front-runner Croatia, while continuing controversial EU - Turkey talks, despite Zagreb's acceptance of Refugees' Human Rights to return, that Ankara refuses fex. in Cyprus, while both have "Good Neighborhood" problems vis a vis Slovenia, or Greece, Cyprus and Armenia respectively, can it be justified by the non-fullfilment of EU criteria, as Slovenia says, or, is it "Double Standards" ?    

The question became unavoidable after statements by Presidents of Slovenia and Croatia, Tuerk and Mesic, respectively, to "EuroFora", exclusively or among Strasbourg's journalists this week at the CoE, on the sidelines of its 2009 Summer University for Political Schools, which topically brought them together as successive key-note speakers.


    Comming only a few Months before EU checks Turkey's compliance to its commitments on Cyprus, etc., scheduled for December 2009, this obviously has a special importance for the coherence of EU Enlargement's principles.

     Suspension of EU Negotiations is a normal consequence in case of a Candidate Country's failure to fullfil EU Conditions, such as "Good Neighborhood relations", stressed at first Slovenian President Danilo Tuerk, current CoE's chair.

    But, regarding EU's Criteria,  there shouldn't be any "Double Standards",  reacted Croatian President Stjepan Mesic, commenting the fact that Turkey's controversial EU negotiations continue, while they were recently "freezed" in the case of Croatia, an "unquestionably European Country", which oficially accepts to respect Refugees Human Rights, contrary to Ankara's notorious refusals or reluctance.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           - "EU itself has set as a Criterium (for EU Enlargement) the "Good Neighborhood relations",  and their absence justifies the "Suspension" EU Negotiations, (f.ex. with Croatia), because of a Border dispute affecting the territorial integrity of an EU Member Country, stressed Slovenian President, Danilo Tuerk, CoE's Chairman in office (May - November 2009), speaking to Journalists in Strasbourg including "EuroFora".    

Questioned earlier what "consequences on EU's Enlargement policy" can have the "Ban on EU Membership Negotiations", imposed to Croatia, Tuerk replied that "this question comes down to the fulfillement of (EU) Criteria for membership. One has to look at each Candidate Country ., from the point of view whether it fullfils the Criteria that EU has set. One of them are Good Neighborhood Relations, I'd like to remind. And also, there are other factors, such as Justice, Home affairs, Rule of Law, and others".


    - "Now, ..Candidate Countries are at Different Levels of fulfillement of Criteria", he observed.

    - " Croatia is obviously the closest to that. I'm rather optimistic : I think that in the coming Months we'll have an opportunity to look at all these issues constructively and hopefully we'll be able to make progress". "My main concern, at this point, is the situation in Bosnia : We haven't seen enough progres domesticaly. We haven't seen enough during ..political parties within their country.We need a New Energy, a new energetic move towards the Candidature for EU membership. "Other (Western Balkan) Countries (Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM, Albania) have been making soaring Progress, and I think that they should be ready, in a few Years, for the Candidate status".

    - "As far as the Western Balkans are concerned, .. nobody should be left outside" the EU, Slovenian's President concluded, ommitting to mention Turkey's controversial EU bid.

    - "This process may be seen as Slow, but..  Slovenia has also has also been exposed to various "Booms of Slowness" in our accession period. But now we can say that the process was relatively quick, because changes which occur after becoming EU member, are quite large, and they require proper Preparations before the (EU) membership becomes a new factor, an impacting line for a new (EU) member country".
----------------------------

EU "Solidarity" ?
------------------------------   

Slovenian statements made some participants from certain 3rd Countries as FYROM, etc. claim that "the Principle of EU Solidarity" would "produce a.. rising European Union Nationalism (sic !), against Non-EU Countries", as they said, asking unhappy foreign countries to form a "bloc" to exert pressure on the EU...    

But Croatian President Stjepan Mesic dismissed that, supporting "EU Integration", "after the Economy also in Political" issues, as "the achievement" of our times. In EU there is "diversity, but it's United", he stressed, "EU has to be United so that it can become a central factor of Peace" also at the surrounding areas, he replied.

Speaking later exclusively to "EuroFora", the experienced twice President of Croatia, former President of the International "Non-Aligned" movement, denounced "Double Standards" in the way EU treats recently Croatia compared to Turkey :   

 - "I think that there shouldn't be Double Standards", stressed the Croatian President, in reply to a Question comparing the freeze of EU - Croatia talks, with the continuation of EU - Turkey talks, despite the fact that Croatia is an "unquestionably European country", while Turkey's EU bid is notoriously controversial.


    Mesic was reacting to the observation that, even if he confirmed his "respect of Refugees' Human Rights to return, etc. (See infra), nevertheless, EU talks are suspended with Croatia.. While for oher, controversial candidates, who refuse to respect Refugees' Rights to return, etc., as fex. Turkey does in occupied Cyprus and elsewhere, EU negotiations continue".

    - "I believe that Croatia's accession will confirm that all European Countries who fulfill all of the Conditions and achieve European Standards, have to join the EU. There shouldn't be any Double Standards", went on to add in reply President Mesic.

    In this relation, Croatia's President found "of paramount importance", CoE's "mechanisms enforcing ECHR's judgements"
    
    - "On Refugees and Displaced persons, the process will be completed only after the last person demanding to return will be allowed to do so !", President Mesic Croatia stressed earlier, setting a general standard of obvious importance also for otherr candidates, as f.ex. Turkey, often accused to exclude or heavily restrict Greek Cypriot Displaced persons' return to their Family Homes and ancestral land, provoke difficulties to Turkish-Kurd IDPs return to their home regions at the South-East, etc.

    Some "2.000 People are still reported Missing" in former Yugoslavia, for some Years, (as in Cyprus, modern Europe's oldest case, for 3 Decades. Nagorno-Karabach, Tcecnya in Russia, etc, more recently), and Investigations "will only be completed after establishing the fate of the last one of them", he added.
    
    Speaking earlier on "War Crimes", President Mesic stressed that "Leaders are responsible for (the) Wars (of the Past), not the People", and called against Impunity :  "Individuals have to be held Responsible for Crimes. International Penal Tribunals have to persecute those individuals", perpetrators of War Crimes, he underlined.

    Such statements naturally made Mesic rather popular at ECHR, whose President, French EuroJudge, Professor Jean-Paul Costa, looked particularly smiling when he welcomed him later on Wednesday afternoon, after Slovenian President Daniko Tuerk earlier this week.
