*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Turkey's Push for Bloody Conflict at the Caucasus was clearly "Condemned" by the PanEuropean, 47 Member Countries-strong CoE Assembly's (PACE) Rapporteur on the Armenian-Azeri Bloody Conflict, Mickael Jensen from Denmark (Liberal), and President of its powerful "Monitoring" Committee on States' Obligations, speaking at PACE's Plenary in Strasbourg.

+ Moreover, in the Debate which followed on the Current Situation in that Conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan, Many MEPs from Various Political Horizons and Countries, Strongly Denounced also Turkey's Recent Export of Extremist Islamist "Jihadist" Armed Gangs from Syria, inside the European Continent, Warning about Risks to Spread, Later-on, Wider throughout Europe's External Borders, from the Caucasus to the Mediterranea, (See Infra).

 

- "First of all, I Remind that it's an Obligation, for All 47 (PanEuropean) CoE's Member States, whenever they have a Dispute among them, to Solve it with Peaceful Means, and Not by an Armed Conflict", stressed from the outset, as a matter of General Principle, PACE's Monitoring Committee's President, Danish MEP Michael Jensen (Liberal), while Introducing the Debate with a Report on the current Bloody Conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan, with the Blatant Incitment and Even Interference of Turkey. Otherwise, such situations "Might Further DeStabilize the Continent, and Lead to New Violences" in that case, he Warned.

- The Mainstream Top MEP "Congratulated Russia" for its Positive Role in Obtaining a "Cease Fire" Agreement, Last Friday, But, "Regretfully" observed that, in real Practice, Later-on, this was "Not fully Respected". Until Now, More than "57 Civilian People had been Killed", and "Civilian Areas Targetted", Even "an Historic Christian Cathedral was Targetted", Contrary to the Commitment of Both directly concerned Countries to Respect Cultural Heritage in times of conflict), and "Heavy Artilery" was used against Civilians, while, moreover, "several Journalists have been injured".

+ President Jensen Also recalled that "All CoE's Member States, Not Only those Directly Involved, Must Refrain from Any use of Force, and Abstain from Any Action that Incites Other (CoE's) Member States to resort to Violence, and Not Aid or Abeit, in any way, the use of Force by the Belligerants, or Any Other Manner to Resolve Conflicts But with Peaceful Means", he Added.

 

=> "In this Context, I Have to clearly Condemn the Fact that the Turkish Authorities, which have a great Influence on the Azerbaijan Government, were Not Using that to Calm things down and Return Back to the Negotiation Table. But, on the Contrary, they (Ankara) were Openly Encouraging, and reportedly Abetting Militarily the Azerbaijani to Continue the Armed Hostilities", pointed out CoE's Rapporteur.

+ Already, Since October 6, PACE's powerful Monitoring Committee, chaired by Jensen, had "Deplored Inflammatory rhetoric by Turkey, as well as reported direct Involvement in the conflict, and Called upon it to Cease doing so immediately".

Turkey reportedly is the Only CoE's Member which did Not yet call for a Peaceful Resolution of that Conflict, Starting with an Immediate Cease-Fire.

>>> Inter alia, this Turkish stance is Also "Contrary to the UN Security Council's 884 Resolutions which have Asked All States in the area to Refrain from Any Hostile act or Interference that could Widen the Conflict and Undermine Security in the Region", Jensen added Now, Speaking at PACE's Plenary.

Moreover, even "the ECHR has asked all those involved, Including Turkey, to Refrain from Any Action that would Infringe Human Rights of Civilians", while, "the French and the Russians made Mention of direct Turkish Involvemet in the Conflict", CoE's Rapporteur Concluded.

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

+ In PACE's Public Debate which Followed, (See: ..., etc), Many MEPs particularly Slamed Ankara's notorious Massive Export of Foreign Armed Jihadists from Syria and Libya to the Caucasus, on this occasion, Warning of Serious, Wider Risks in the Future.

Turkey, After Surrounding Europe with Extremist Islamist Jihadist Armed Gangs, from Neighbouring Syria (Facing EU Members Cyprus + Greece) since 2018-2020, up to Libya (Facing EU Members Italy + France) on 2020, Following the Transfert, by Turkish Smugglers, of Deadly ISIS' Terrorists in Bataklan's Massacre in Paris on 2015, Berlin's Christmas Market Killings of 2016, nearby Freiburg Rape and Murder also on 2016, and Many Others, has, Now, on 2020, Started Even to Notoriously Export to Armenia/Nagorno Karabach several Thousands More of such Foreign, Non European Jihadist Gunmen, massively Invading Our Continent for the 1st Time in the Modern Era :

- These Facts, Obviously Dangerous for Europe's foreseabla Future, (since Turkey's such Next Steps might be at EU's External Borders in Greece, Italy or France, etc.: Comp. Supra), were Strongly Denounced by Many and Various MEPs at CoE's PanEuropean Parliamentary Assembly PACE), during a "Current News" Debate, on Monday Afternoon, October 12, in Strasbourg,

+ and almost Immediately Followed by News, from Nearby Caucasus' Area of Russia, that an Armed Gang of such  Jihadists from Syria had just Attacked the Region of Chechnya, Killing several People, Before being subdued by the Security Forces...

=> What Will be Turkey's Next Step in this Growing Morbid Saga against Europe ? And, will EU Start to Efficiently ReAct, Before it becomes Too Late ?

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"

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.

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 ?
