*Strasbourg/ECHR/Angelo Marcopolo/- The jailed Ukranian opposition's leader, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko would accept a possible  "pardon" by Ukranian President Yanukovich, but, in that case, she would also fight up to her full legal rehabilitation, replied the Lawyer of the former Prime Minister, Vlasenko to an "EuroFora"s question just after an ECHR's judgement found unanimously that her pre-trial detention was unlawful for 3 concurring reasons, and that her rights had been excessively restricted, in violation of Articles 5 and 18 of the European Convention of Human Rights.
 -  "As a Lawyer, I would tell you that all the Steps to release Mrs Tymoshenko would be adequate. Afterwards, she will fight for her full political and legal rehabilitation", Sergiy Vlasenko replied to "EuroFora"s question "if" he found that, eventually, "a pardon from President Yanukovich might be adequate" for implemention of ECHR's present judgement.

But the main call of Tymoshenko's lawyer, anounced to all journalists at ECHR in Strasbourg, including "EuroFora", was for the immediate release of the Ukranian opposition leader, without delaying things by an eventual application for a Review to ECHR's Great Chamber, and to "stop using (National Courts) for political motivations", "as the only way to fully implement the (European) Court's judgement", particularly since his client was the main political competitor with a real chance to win at the national elections, as he added.

However, ECHR droped Tymoschenko's additional complaint about inhuman and degrading treatments inside the Ukranian prison, mainly because she had refused a precise Medical Examination, even if it was acknowledged that she apparently had to face some harsh conditions of detention, as it results from an ECHR chamber's decision taken by a Slim Majority of only 3 against 4 EuroJudges, (ECHR's President, Spielman, having voted for the recognition of such a Violation of the European Convention on Human Rights' Article 3).


At any case, ECHR currently prepares also a 2nd Judgement on the substantial aspects of Tymoshenko's 2011 controversial condemnation by the Ukranian Courts, which may be taken and published at any moment in the Future, on the exact Timing on which "I can't give you any indication", because "that's another" issue, even if, according to the average period of Time usually spend in such kind of affairs, "it might take another Year" or so, (i.e. a little bit earlier of later), said to "EuroFora" the experienced ECHR's Spokesman, Director of General Services, Rodderick Liddel. (I.e. welll before the next Presidential Elections in Ukraine, scheduled for 2015).

The move ECHR move comes shortly after President Janukovitch has just "pardoned" 2 other opposition politicians, former Ministers also condemned by national Courts earlier, in a decision officially "welcomed" by the CoE and EU, even if he claimed that something similar wouldn't be possible for Tymoshenko because of additional accusations pending in National Courts, while an important EU - Ukrania Summit is due to make crucial choices on the European orientation of the country during the Autumn of this year (2013).

Brixen-Bressnone/ACM/10 August 2008


Pope Benedict XVI launched a call "in the name of the common Christian heritage" of "all Christians", to "immediately stop military actions", and "resolutely take, the road of negotiation and dialogue", with "Initiatives" for a "peaceful and sustainable solution" in South Ossetia.

It's with "profound anxiety" that we read "the news, more and more dramatic", on "these tragic events ..which have caused many innocent victims and obliged a great number of civilians to leave their homes". All involved must "avoid to cause more, and worse sufferings to the population", he said.



He warned against "more violent confrontations and retaliations, which may degenerate in a conflict of even larger scope".


To avoid this risk, "the International Community and the most inffuent countries" should "make every effort to support and promote .. initiatives" for a stable Peace, he stressed, shortly before his visit to France, where President Nicolas Sarkozy is the current EU chair.

"Together with our Orthodox brothers, we pray for these aims, and we entrust them to the intercession of her sanctity, virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus and of all Christians", he concluded.


Pope Benedict XVI spoke in front of more than 12.000 People during the Angelus of an Open-air Mass at Brixen-Bressalone (north of Italy), at the end of his short stay at the Alpes, close to German chancelor Angie Merkel's restplace, where he received the visits of two f.Italian Presidents, Ciampi and Cossiga, together with Minister Tremonti.


Pope's spokesman, Federico Lombardi, said ttesterday that he highlighted Brixen-Bressanone's synthesis, a peaceful and mutually enriching meeting point of many cultures, as "a model for Europe".






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 ?
