*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- New EU Commissioner on JHA, Didier Reynders, experienced former vice-Prime Minister in charge of Foreign Affairs, speaking to "Eurofora" after an important meeting of EU Parliament's LIBE Committee this Evening in Strasbourg, which discussed the 1st Visit to Turkey by the vice-President of EU Commission, Margarites Schinas, as well as the Monitoring of the situation in Hungary and Poland, before to address the "Hot" issue of Web-Journalist Daphne's Murder in Malta, did Not Exclude at all for a Similar Procedure (as vis a vis Hungary and Poland, currently Article 7) to be, eventually, used Also in the case of Malta, particularly if relevant developments become too Nasty, at the present crucial juncture (Comp, f.ex.: ..., etc).

-"We'll see !", Reynders (a Center-Right Politician) Carefully Reserved his Judgement on whether such a Procedure should be Extended also for Malta, if things don't ameliorate concerning the notorious Problems faced, until now, by the Investigation on Web-Journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia's Brutal Murder, where the Instigators still remain UnKnown, while controversial Prime Minister Muscat (a Socialist) still Insists to Stick to his Job, at least until Mid-January 2020, even if his Chief of Staff and a Minister, around him, were Recently Obliged to Resign, and Revelations about links between a Middleman and his own Surroundings have Multiplied, in Addition to Growing Denonciations about astonishing Conflicts of Interest affecting Many among those currently Responsible for the Enquiry.

- In particular, - "We shall see Tomorrow", the Competent EU Commissioner Added, pointing at a landmark EU Parliament's Plenary Debate on Daphne's case, Tuesday Morning, due to be Followed by a MEPs' Vote for a Resolution on Wednesday Noon.

+ Earlier, he had Surprized, by Unexpectedly expressing his Interest to Continue Attending the "LIBE" Committee's Work ToNight, Even After it had Finished the Examination of the cases of Hungary and Poland, for which Reynders had officialy come, Leaving Only Malta to be Discussed Last...

- But, Suddenly, the competent Rapporteur, Dutch Liberal MEP Sophie In't Veld, theatrically cuts the discussion short, Announcing a Demand for her Report on Malta to be ... "Postponed" !

=> - "Marvelous Initiative !", proclames, spontaneously, the Socialist MEP Claude Moraes, Chairman of the LIBE Committee, (attributing his Joy not to Politics, but to the fact that "some have not yet got the Time to Eat" something for Diner, as he pointed out)...

- When "Eurofora" asks Sophie In't Veld Why she apparently ..."Frustrated" even EU Commissioner Reynders, by that, apparently UnExpected Announcement that her Malta Report was due to be "Postponed" for much Later-on, she Replies that he would have "Spoken" with several People about it, so that, Nowadays, it's Only "a Resolution" which will be Debated and Voted during this December 2019 Plenary Session, while, on the Contrary, her "Report on the Mission" of EU Parliament's Delegation to Malta, that it Visited on December 2 to 3, 2019, its Findings and Propositions for Action in the foreseable Future, etc., would, indeed, be "Postponed for Next Year"...

According to EU Parliament's Agenda, the Next "LIBE" Committee's Meeting is no sooner than on January 9, 2020, i.e. practically at the Eve of the Next Plenary Session which Starts on January 13, 2020.

>>> I.e., by a "Coincidence", all This Fits perfectly well the Date of "January 12", 2020, that controversial Maltese Socialist Prime Minister Muscat has notoriously Chosen for his own Resignation, under Pretext to Supervise the Investigation on Daphne's Murder.

While, on the Contrary, the Victim's Family and Friends, as well as the Opposition, (mainly Center-Right, but not only), have Urged for Muscat's Resignation already Since End November 2019, Arguying that, Otherwise, he Risks to Deviate the Investigation from its normal Direction, by Influencing its course through the Numerous Cronies that he has Placed around each Step to make, during the Crucial Next 40 Days (Comp., f.ex:.., etc).

    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.
