*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- A Surprizing and Scandalous Delay, both from EU and certain Member States, to Timely take any Efficient Measures to Protect the People from the dangerous Spread of Deadly Virus COVID-19, Hits very Hard inside the EU, and mainly at its Core, around Strasbourg, (from North-Western Italy to North-Eastern France, Switzerland, Germany, etc), while some massive and/or excessive Coercitive Measures (such as Mass Home Confinement, Total Ban of Foreigners' entries at EU's External Borders, etc), come Scandalously Too Late, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/deadlyvirusheadstoeucore.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/virusriskbutnoeuprotection.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/viruskillsrighttohealthyenvironment.html, etc),  since Europe became now "the Epicenter" of the World in the Number of Infections and Deaths, according to the WHO, Bypassing China, which chose a Different Strategy !

The Fact that this was Not Fatal, is clearly Proven, inter alia, Also by the Example of Russia, (CoE's Member and part of De Gaule's "Greater Europe"), which has Astonishingly Succeeded, untll now, to still remain withOut Any Death at all, and Only a Tiny number of delayed Infections (mainly "Imported", particularly from the EU), Despite being a Neighbour of China, and having a Huge Territory to Defend... But, mutatis-mutandis, more or less, Also by those of India - another China's Neighbour, as well as Viet Nam, Cambodia and Mongolia ! -  Belarus and Kazakhstan, Mexico (Neighbour of USA, which, on the Contrary, had several Victims), or Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, and Lithuania, Serbia and Montenegro, Georgia and Armenia, Azerbaijan, etc.  Even Countries like Canada and Australia, which were Hit by the Virus, almost from the Start, and have Relations with China (particularly Australia, who has also Business links in Bio-Tech with Wuhan !), Nevertheless, managed to Contain its progress, resulting Only in a Few Deaths until now (just 1 and 5, respectively).

With More than 83.000 Infections and 4.050 Dead, (when we Started this Article : See Infra) the wider EU area has Also outnumbered China with a too Rapid "Explosion" of New Cases, which are SkyRocketing Nowadays, (See relevant Graphic, herewith), while the Chinese new cases, on the Contrary, have Spectaculary Stagnated, recently... As for the Density of the Crisis, measured in terms of Infections compared to the Total Population of each Area, the EU already stands (clearly and by Far) at the Top of the whole World ! (See relevant Graphic).

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

Spectacularly, Europe was mainly Hit at its Core, starting by the Industrial/High-Tech area of North-Western Italy, and Extending at its Neighbouring North-Eastern France (Strasbourg - Paris direction) and Switzerland/Germany, afterwards Spreading to Spain, etc, as "Eurofora" had Warned with an explicit Publication, already as Early as since the 22 of February 2020, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/deadlyvirusheadstoeucore.html).

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

This "European" Spread was, reportedly, Not entirely imported from China, but Also due to some Undetermied Endogene "Clusters", (which remain a "Mystery"), while the Genome of the Virus would also be slightly Different. The Geo-Political "Hot Spots" mainly Targeted by that Virus accross the World, were Central China, Europe's core, Iran, and North-Eastern China-throughout the Korean Peninsula, including North and particularly South Korea, (while USA was also hit Seriously, but, comparatively, Less).

The Chinese Strategy, which, apparently, proved to be quite Succesfull, given mainly a Drastic Diminution of New Cases of Infection, and even of Deaths, Recently, (and reportedly Backed by the WHO), was resumed as being that of : - "Early Detection, Early Quarantine and Early Treatment". On the Contrary, China's Media Criticized "some Countries (which) have tried to Play Down the Risks, and the Measures they have taken are not only InSufficient to control the pandemic at home, but also not enough to Prevent themselves from being the source of virus Transmission to other countries"...  

Indeed, f.ex., after the Middle of March, in France, the former Health Minister, Agnes Buzyn, and Strasbourg's "Great East" Region's President Jean Rottner, (Both Medical Doctors), Denounced the Fact that they had Warned, Earlier, about the Gravity of that Virus' Threat, the Prime Minister Philippe and the President of the Republic Macron, Since the End of January and the 1st March, respectively, But in Vain. That's why 3 Lawyers, representing an NGO, have just lodged a formal Legal Complaint now, asking a Criminal Prosecution of the Prime Minister and his former Health Minister, arguying that they "Knew" the Risks for the Population, and Had the Means to Act, But did Not Protect the People on Time.

At any case, it's a Fact that, towards the End of February 2020, at a moment when about 10 People had already been Killed by the Virus at Neighbouring N/W Italy, only ..."1 Bus was Stopped" near the Franco-German Borders, at Lyon, (as Strasbourg's Newspaper "DNA" ironically Titled in its Headline News), while, also, near the Southern Franco-Italian Borders, several Angry Protests were reported for alleged Lack of any serious Measure at that Border or elsewhere, (while Paradoxically Allowing even Many Italian Football Fans to attend a Match near Lyon, Shocking even former Environment Minister and f. Presidential Candidate Segolene Royal...), Until Later-on, when the French Government exclusively Prohibited public Meetings of ..."More than 5.000 People", Only if they take place "in Confined Spaces" (sic !), (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/viruskillsrighttohealthyenvironment.html). But, almost at the same time, on the Contrary, inter alia, f.ex., even ...Saudi Arabia immediately Closed all its Education establishments, after registering Only ...11 (Eleven) Infections ! As for succesfull Russia (Comp. Supra : with Only ...2 Infections, during a Long Period of Time, except some Dozens of "Imported" cases, Later-on, mainly from the EU, and "0" - ZERO- Dead), it Immediately Closed its Borders to/from Neighbouring China, right from the Start, Despite being one of its Best Allies... So that, even Home Quarantine, suddenly Imposed to all the People, in France and Spain, etc., Only ...After 17 March, and after Many Hundreds of Dead, isn't it a bit Too Late ?

As for the EU, except from some, notable but (Comparatively to the US) rather Limited Financial moves for the WHO and Bio-Tech. Research, Only as Late as after the End of February, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/virusriskbutnoeuprotection.html), during a Long, Crucial Period of Time, there is Not any visible Measure for a real Protection of EU Citizens, But an obvious Reluctance to speak about EU's Borders, (initially Abandoned exclusively to Member States), and reported Tension (until Mid-March, included), between Brussels and several EU Member Countries which had Tried to take some National Initiatives to Protect, at least their own Borders from obvious Risks to Import Infections from abroad. On the Contrary, even Italy in a notoriousl Tragic situation, was reportedly Abandoned to itself, in real practice, for a too Long Period of Time, receiving Aid Only ...from China ! We must Wait so Late as Only After Middle March, (after 2 successive Big "Explosions" of the Number of Infections and Deaths inside the EU, and After WHO declared a "PANdemic", added to Europe having become, in the mean-Time, "the Epicenter of the World" in CoranoVirus !), in order to See, for the 1st Time, a timid EU Advice for EU Member Countries to provisionary Stop AirFlights and Entries at EU's External Borders, i.e. ...obviously Too Late, since "the Fox" (i.e. the Deadly Virus) was Already "in the Box" !  Only for some prospects to Support EU Economy, Hopes for Progres appeared in Brussels, until these Last Days, (while, on the Contrary, Even for such notoriously Elementary Needs for the People, as, f.ex., Ventilators, Gants, Masks, DesInfectants, etc., we apparently have Still to Wait...., except from certain Donations of Protective Masks by ...China to Italy, Belgium, France, etc)...

But, in the Mean-Time, even the Symbolic EU's Franco-German Core internal Borders, at the prestigious "Europa" Bridge of the Rhine river, between Strasbourg and Kehl, have ...Closed recently, totaly Separating the two People for the 1st Time since the 1990ies ! And not only Old, but even many Young infected People, (who reached 50% of those at "Intensive Care"), have Now Often to be put into Ventilators' Tubes, in order to Help them Survive, and, for that purpose, they are Now Obliged, around Strasbourg's Exceptionally Hard-Hit Area of Alsace and "Great East" Region (Comp. Supra), to be transfered into ..."Military" Airplanes (sic !), in order to be Urgently Dispatched Towards Regions located at the Other Side of France, i.e. Separated and too Far Away from their Families, (as, f.ex. ...Marseille or Toulon, at the Mediterranean Sea, etc !), Searching to find a Rare Place at an UnKnown yet Hospital, (as, f.ex., the President of Strasbourg's Region, Dr. Rottner, just wrote, in his Twitter account at the Web, with "Emotion").

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

>>> At the Moment that we are Concluding this Article, about 3.250 in China, but More than 5.000 innocent People throughout Europe, have Already been Killed by that strange, mutated CoronaVirus, according to the Latest Data gathered by Hopkins University, (among a Total of 10.031 Victims accross the World) ! 

=> Why, all that ? Why Nothing wasN't done in the EU on Time, using the High Level of Medical Science at our Developed Societies, in order to Spare all these innocent Lives ? Who is really Responsible for this, still on-going, Massacre ?

And what should the European People do, in Solidarity with all the other Victims throughout the World, in order to put, Urgently, an End to this Horrible Nightmare, Save Human Lives and render Justice ?

At any case, No Real European Citizen could ever Forget the Heavy Responsibility of those who, suddenly, may have pushed into a sly Trap, abandoned, and hindered to be saved, so Many innocent Human Persons, for some Dark, InHuman Stakes.

Inevitably, such Facts, (and, particularly, if the overall situation is not urgently redressed on time), incite People to reconsider the veracity of the Hypothesis, (backed by more than initialy expected), about an eventually artificial creation of this CoronaVirus COVID-19 by a Lab, somewhere in the World, (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/ahmadinejadonlabomadevirus1.html)... Even if this is Not a Necessary Hypothesis for this undeniably Tragic EU Enigma, of apparent Lack of Timely Protection of European People in Danger.

  Ten Years of ECHR : 1998 - 2008 show need of Revival in 2009-2010 coinciding with 2009 EU Election
   

A threefold, coordinated move by new Top French Political actors in the 2009 EU Parliament Elections, expressed in Strasbourg a will to boost Europe's Political dimension close to Citizens' concerns, going from protection of Economy to defence of Human Rights.    

The move met an exceptional ECHR's call for a "revival" of Human Rights' protection mechanism', in a Mega-Conference, early 2010.   

Obviously focusing on June 2009 Elections to EU Parliament, it involved from the outset the recently nominated "dual" Head of French Governing Party (UMP)  Michel BARNIER and Rachida DATI :

imag0282_400

     - "As President Sarkozy has clearly said, we (France) are in favor of a Strong, Sovereign and Independent, Political Europe, which protects its Citizens, and not for a large Super-Market, nor for a Europe under influence",

    "This goes for everything, including Energy", added to "EuroFora" the experienced former EU Commissioner, Minister of Foreign affairs, currently of Agriculture and Sarkozy's new pick as Leader of the Governing party UMP to EU 2009 Election, Michel BARNIER                                              .                             

  - Human Rights are important because they are at the Heart of the Political Europe that we aspire for : I.e. a Europe able to act and protect its Citizens, stressed also the New French Minister for European affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE, while meeting Strasbourg's Journalists at his first visit to the CoE.   

imag0313_400_01 

This is one of the main interests for CoE, which is also a natural place for cooperation between EU countries and Russia or Turkey, which was recently helpful at the Middle East crisis, he added.

The move gained momentum with French Minister of Justice, Rachida Dati's main observations at ECHR's 5Oth Anniversary :   

- "While we are seeking Europe's Borders and Identity, you (ECHR) remind us also of its Values", Human Rights, Dati noted.   

Citizens seek more and more often ECHR's help, and the tempo accelerates, Europa awaits a symbol, while national legal orders are not freezed   

And she expressed "support" to ECHR President Jean-Paul Costa's call to satisfy the vital need to revigorate the PanEuropean Court by deciding big changes at a High-Level Conference open to a large audience, a kind of "Etats Generaux" of Human Rights, at the beginning of 2010.       

dati_a_cedh_1_400 

It's not so much the recently growing number of applications for Russia or Ukraine etc, which seems to be Costa's main concern : In fact, the cases declared "admissible" are much fewer...    

But rather the persistent violations of Human Rights, sometimes very grave (ie. murders, torture, abritrary deprivation of liberty, oppression of freedom of speech, destructions of homes/properties, etc), despite numerous, repeated condemnations by ECHR. So that CoE's Ministers, due to "supervise execution" of ECHR's judgements, are overloaded.   

F.ex. most Media noted that Turkey still remains, even in 2008, the 1st among 47 CoE member States in the number of condemnations by ECHR :  257, compared to 233 for Russia, with a population more than the double..    

The problem is that it's not the 1st time at all : During all the last Decade 1998-2008, Turkey was condemned by ECHR much more than any other State, and for particularly grave violations :   

- 1.652 condemnations, compared to 605 for Russia, 548 for Poland, 494 for France, 476 for Ukraine, etc.   

Italy's second place with 1.394 condemnations is a misleading false appearance : In fact, most of them (999) concern mere "procedural delays" in national courts. Same for France.   

On the contrary, Turkey was condemned 180 times for Killings, 192 times for Torture or Inhuman/Degrading treatments, 340 times for arbitrary deprivation of Liberty, 528 times for "Unfair trial", and 169 times for oppression of Freedom of speech, (etc). And the latest, 2008 numbers, indicate no change in this trend, (See supra).   

The current Spanish CoE Presidency (November 2008 - May 2009) has made of the implementation of ECHR's judgements its 1st Priority.   

ECHR's President, Jean-Paul Costa, stressed in its 2009 Annual Press Conference, CoE Member States' obligation to implement the judgements, according to Article 46 of the European Convention on Human Rights.   

Moreover, if CoE's Committee of Ministers delays to ensure implementation, then, the repetition of violations in similar cases provokes a multiplication of complaints tabled to the Court, which overload the mecanism for the protection of Human Rights, denounced Costa.          

A series of Debates on "the situation of Human Rights in Europe", focusing on the "need to fight against Impunity" of perpetrators of grave crimes, is  currently prepared by CoE's Parliamentary Assembly for the session of June 2009.  

The final Timing comes shortly AFTER the EU Elections, but the main Reports should have been adopted before.

Meanwhile, French President Sarkozy and German Chancelor Merkel's recent call "for a Political Europe" in 2009 EU Elections (See earlier "correspondence from Paris, Elysee Palace), seems more and more endorsed also by other EU Countries' Top MEPs :

Thus, f.ex., EU Parliament's 1st vice-President, Greek MEP Mrs Rodi KRATSA, speaking to "EuroFora", agreed that 2009 EU Election would be a "naturally good" opportunity to debate what really interests EU Citizens : "The Future of a Political Europe, able to face the Economic Crisis, with a Culture and identity which attracts the People"
