*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- After an "Urgent" Debate on "the Need to Reform European (Mass) Migration Policies", CoE, the PanEuropean Organisation for Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, Strongly Adopted a Resolution asking for Mass Asylum Seekers' demands to be processed "Outside of Europe", Voted Down any reference to the Controversial EU's 2015 "ReLocation" and "ReSettlement" schemas, as well as Urged to "Increase Efficiency of Return Policies", etc., among a Surprizing set of mostly Anorthodox, Critical positions, (between which were added, however, certain, comparatively secondary Concessions to some Establishment Interests, f.ex., partialy, about a floue demand for even More Funds to Turkey, etc).

Significantly, the Original Heading of that Proposal, initialy presented by a Number of MEPs, including Brittish, was quite Explicit : - "When Generosity, Kindness, Humanity and Western Democratic Freedoms, are Answered with Radical Intolerance and Violence : An Urgent Call to Reform the Failed European Migration, Integration, Security, and Border policies", it read...

=> After a quite Strong InFight among various Amendments, Finaly CoE's Parliamentary Assembly adopted a Call to "Organise External Processing of (Mass) Asylum Applications, by Safe Procedures, OUTSIDEUROPE", in E ways which can also Safeguard Human Rights of Asylum Seekers", as MEPs stressed.

+Moreover, the PanEuropean, 47 Member Countries-strong Assembly of Strasbourg, also, clearly Voted Down, with a Strong Majority, any reference to EU's Controversial 2015 "Decisions ...with regard to ReLocation and ReSettlement of (Mass) Refugees" routinely Smuggled into Europe mainly by Turkish Traffickers between 2015-2016 +, Totaling more than 1,5 Millions of People, mostly Massive Irregular Migration.

+ In Addition to a reiteration of what has become Recently a Widely Accepted EU Call to "Ensure the Efficiency of (EU) External Border Controls", "in particularby providing for proper Funding and Functioning of a New European Border and Coast Guard Agency", CoE's MEPs also Asked to "Increase the Efficiency of Return Policies", (f.ex., "by mandating a Newly established European Return Office, wih Adequate Financing and Operating Powers", as well as by "Harmonizing Return Practices throughout Europe", including with "possible Cost-Sharing", (etc).

Last, but not least, PACE also Urged, at least to "Reflect on the Emerging Challenges faced by Integration Policies, including Threats for Security and Radicalisation".

    UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brownn's promise to French President Sarkozy that Great Britain will proceed to Lisbon Treaty's ratification was certainly fuelled further by MEPs' warning, meanwhile in Strasbourg, that all Enlargement stops until EU can have efficient Institutions for more than 27 member Countries.    

    EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, formally announced this position, after consulting all Political Groups' Chairmen, Monday in Strasbourg, and most MEPs made the point crystal clear during Plenary Debates on Wednesday.   

     Thus, from Thursday, UK's House of Commons, at Westminster, gave its "Green Light" to Lisbon Treaty's ratification, which was completed later-on, after ovecoming some last minute attempts to block the process.

    - In only 3 other Member Countries we feel some "hesitations" : Poland, Czech Republic and Cyprus", said, meanwhile, EU Chairman-in-office, Slovenian Foreign Minister, Dr. Dimitri Ruppel, speaking to EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee in Strasbourg, However, "I didn't hear any explicit refusal", he carefully added.

    Rupel's fears were later bellied in Cyprus' case, where a wide majority of political parties confirmed their support to the EU Treaty, but fears were confirmed in Poland's case, while Czechs said they waited for their Constitutional Court to pronounce itself.

    A paradox is that the Polish President Lech Kaczynski, who reportedly expressed concerns about Lisbon Treaty, had personally signed himself its blueprint, while, on the contrary, Cyprus' new President, Christofias, despite its own party's opposal, declared that he'll respect the signature of his precedessor, former President Tassos Papadopoulos, in favor of EU Treaty.

    But, "all that noise is a misinterpretations by some Western Media : Poland will ratify the EU Treaty, and even earlier than some other Member Countries", declared to "EuroFora", in a surprisingly optimistic tone, the Polish Chairman of EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, Jacek Saryuswolski...


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 ?
