*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).

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 ?
