*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/
- Questioned by "Eurofora" about the Independence of Mechanisms to Monitor the Prevention or Eradication of Corruption risks among Judges, in order to maintain Citizens' Trust to their Integrity, CoE's Secretary General, Thornbjorn Jagland's Reply was sharp and concrete :


- "That is, indeed", one of the core Issues for Today's "European Conference of Judges", (organized by the "Consultative Council of European Judges" : CCEJ), he Started to say.

- In consequence, "they are" precisely "Discussing about that", Jagland anounced, pointing at an Exceptional CoE's Conference in Strasbourg, due to Draft a relevant Legal Opinion on that matter.


- And this is going-on "Right Now !", Jaglant stressed, concerning a Move expected to present CoE's competent Legal Expert's View on that Topical matter the soonest, "for 2018".


- For the rest, COE's Secretary General pointed at his own Speech, which had just Opened that Conference, particularly by mentioning current Risks of a "Populist Exploitation of (such eventual problems in) the Judiciary in the current Political Environment".

One among the various Examples of that Political "Exploitation", was offered, later-on, spontaneously by a Turkish Government representative, who Claimed that it was only an Alleged Sympathy of some Judges with that Strange, 6 Hours only long, "Coup" Attempt of July 2016, which would explain and justify the Massive Dissmissals, followed often also by Prosecutions, Arrests, and/or ImPrisonements, etc, of several Thousands of Judges in Turkey, (usually Accused to be "Gullenists", etc).

- "It's exactly about what You just heard me tell and discuss in that Conference", went on to add, Later-on, speaking also to "Eurofora", the Experienced President of CoE's PanEuropean Anti-Corruption Watchdog, nick-named "GRECO", Marin Mrcela, who is also vice-President of Croatia's Supreme Court.

- President Mrcela, inter alia, had insisted, indeed, in his Address to CoE's Conference, Earlier this Morning, that, according also to some other CoE's relevant Legal Recommendations, each Country should have a "Council of Judges", with Most of its Members, "Not Appointed, but Elected", as he stressed, in order to deal with Monitoring Judges' career and behavior, etc.

Indeed, this is Part of the Proposals included in GRECO's latest Recommendation on "Judicial Integrity and Corruption", recently made according to its factual Findings after Checking the Current Situation in several CoE's Member States, (Comp., f.ex., among others, also, some relevant Critical Observations, Previously made to "Eurofora" by GRECO's President at : ..., etc)

+ "Transparency" is also another Key Word, for that same purpose, Mrcela went on to add, in this regard, inter alia.

=> But, "at Any case", Judges "should be Monitored by Independent Bodies", clearly stressed the experienced GRECO's President, (in accordance with "Eurofora"s query : Comp. Supra).

The Judicial branch has, apparently, been considered by the CoE as the Most Urgent to Address Nowadays, among a Wider Trilogy of "MPs, Prosecutors and Judges", which has been Examined, throughout all CoE's 47 Member States, during the Latest period of Monitoring by "GRECO", the overall Results of which, Together with Measures to "Prevent Corruption" in all those areas in the Future, is due to be Discussed during a 2 Days Conference, Later this Week, on Thursday and Friday (9-10/11/2017) in Prague, (Czech Republic).

    EU-educated charming young Chinese presence started to be felt in Council of Europe's corridors in Strasbourg at the aftermath of an Historic Resolution adopted by its Parliamentary Assembly in favor of opening the possibility to give China a special "Status" in the PanEuropean Organization.

    - "My proposal to offer to China an official status as "Observer", in short term, under conditions, was welcomed" by the CoE : "The road to Dialogue between China and the CoE has now been opened", declared after Strasbourg's debates and votes the Head of France's delegation, MEP Jean-Claude Mignon.

    "Neither complacency, nor a mere condamnation of China", but a "wise approach of a political issue of great importance", advised Mignon to all those who'd either overload claims on Democracy, Human Rights or Minorities, or close their eyes to anything, there as elsewhere... A balance which was not exactly followed during debates, contrary to Mignon's personal stance, which appeared rather even-handed.

    China is the only UNO Security Council permanent member which has not yet any status at the CoE, being still obliged to be represented in Strasbourg by a General Consul : USA and Canada, even Japan and .. Mexico, have already got a special Status at the CoE, following Strasbourg's decision, back in 1995, to counter-balance the accession of Russia (1996) by creating special links to traditional "Western-world" allies.

    All former "Socialist" Eastern European countries started to have relations whith the CoE through its former sector on Culture and Education, before becoming full Members of Strasbourg's paneuropean organization. Speculations were unfolding recently about establishing a probable concrete link with China through the topical issue of anti-doping in Sport, on the occasion of the 2008 Olympic games.

    More spectacular, a meeting co-organized a few years ago in Strasbourg, by EuroFora and the International Space University between EU Parliament's long-time Rapporteur for EU's Satellite Navigation system "GALILEO", German MEP Brigitte Langenhagen, and a group of postgraduate students, attracted special interest from Chinese experts, and was followed, in less than a month, by the anouncement of China's intention to support EU's GALILEO project with a participation of 200 million €.

    Compared to that, revendications of .. "Turkish" Minorities, by Turkish MEPs, this week in Strasbourg, spreading through a wide area extended ...from Greece up to China, appeared less worrying, than pittoresque...

    Meanwhile, France's political will to start involving China and other important countries in European and Global affairs was due to be raised also at the forthcoming G-8 Summit in Japan by President Nicolas SARKOZY, (NDLR  : confirmed on July 5)

Polls
