*Strasbourg/ECHR/Angelo Marcopolo/- Mr. Guido Raimondi, who holds ECHR's Top Job at its Head since 2015, appeared Glad to Anounce Today, from Early Morning, in an Exceptionaly Shortened Press Conference, with about 35 Minutes of Q/R, (the Only one that Strasbourg Journalists used to have during a Whole Year, normaly very Much Longer), read a Written Declaration Anouncing, particularly, that he Found the Turkish regime's latest Reply to Numerous Denonciations of Torture and Inhuman/Degrading Treatments, (including Mob Lynching attempts, Brutal Humiliations, Rapes, etc), in Addition to Arbitrary Deprivations of Liberty, etc, as already Documented even by several European/International NGOs specialized in Human Rights, Victims' Families and/or Friends, etc, as ... "Excellent News".


That "Excellence" consists merely into ...Setting up of "a Commission", appointed by the Turkish Government, (i.e. the Same that is Accused of Torture and/or Many Other Serious Violations of Human Rights, particularly Since the Summer 2016 Massive Arrests, Prosecutions, etc., of Many Tens of Thousand of People, including even Judges, Journalists, Educators, Civil Servants, Young Conscript Soldiers, Policemen, Doctors, etc).


According to converging CoE's Sources, it's also that Turkish "Commission", which reportedly served as a Pretext or Claim, Earlier this Week in Strasbourg, in order for a Minority to Hinder even a Crystal-Clear Majority of MEPs in CoE's Parliamentary Assembly to hold an "Urgent Debate" on Turkey, which could have had also some Far-Reaching Repercussions, even vis a vis EU - Ankara developments, (Comp.,f.ex.:....).

To one of the Rare Critical Questions in such an Exceptionaly and UnExpectedly Shortened "Press Conf", raised by an Experienced French Collegue for a Radio, about whether such a Turkish "Commission" might be, in Fact, "Dangerous" for Human Rights, it was practicaly Replied that ECHR,simply, intends to "Follow Closely" its functioning in real Practice, (withOut Explaining How and When exactly), and that "the Point" was that the Victims of Torture, if they found, Later-on, that the Conclusions of that "Commission" Failed to provide Urgently Needed Redress for Grave Human Rights Violations, then, they  "could" Lodge also anOther Legal Complaint, this time in front of a Turkish Court...

I.e., Afterwards, the Victims in eventual Urgent Need for Protection and Redress, could also Make Several More Legal Complaints, in Many Other Turkish outlets, (f.ex., Appeals, Superior Court, etc., including another Application to the Turkish "Constitutional Court", recently Established in order to "Filter" and/or Delay even more the Moment when, at last, f.ex. a Heavily Tortured Prieoner might be, finaly, legaly able to Lodge an Individual Complaint to Strasbourg's ECHR. Then, he would, notoriously have to Wait for several Years, before a Judgement might be issued, later on, in hs favor, or not. If it's not yet that, the Victim might, eventualy, Try to Reach ECHR's Grand Chamber, (but that's nota guaranteed Right at all, depending on the Discretion of an ECHR's internal Team, which doesn't even Motivate at all its Decisions to Accept or Refuse even to Consider such an Ultimum Remedium quest.


Regrettably, it wasn't even mentioned How Much Time might Need, in Real Practice, for all those Delicate and Complex Legal Procedures, a Tortured and f.ex. repeatedly Raped Dissident, Arbitrarily Deprived of Liberty and Closed in Turkish Prisons, where he/she might be Facing, each Hour, Day, Week, Month, Trimester, Semester, Year, etc., a Too Long Series of Inhuman/Degrading Treatment, withOut any Timely Help.


It's only Known that, mutatis-mutandis, f.ex., certain Greek Cypriot Refugees/Displaced People, (particularly 2 Different Old Women, etc), have notoriously ...Died, while Waiting, in vain, at least a Judgement to be issued by the ECHR, after Too Many Years of persistent Deprivation of any Access to their Famil Home and/or other Private Properties, in their Ancestral Land, where Turkey's Military Invasion and Occupation forces still Hinder them to Return, (Comp. f.ex., former Long-Time ECHR President, professorJulius Wildhaber's moving, sincere "Excuses", communicated to "Eurofora"s co-Founder, when we Raised that Dramatic Question in an ECHR Press Conference in Strasbourg, on behalf of the remaining Family of that Deceased Refugee Woman, who had been Vainly Waiting for, at least, an Elementary Justice, for Too Long : See our relevant Publication, then at TCWeekly, etc.....).

Even After such Moves, a Jailed Victim of Torture in Turkish Prisons, notoriously Full after Massive Arrests since 2016, would also have to Wait, probably much Longer, for CoE's Committee of Ministers in Strasbourg, to Start Discussing his/her Case during their Trimestrial or Semestrial Meetings on ECHR Judgements' Implementation, Hoping that, at last, After Many More Years of Delay, he/she might, eventualy, see at least an Elementary Justice to be done. (Without Guarantee, as Too Many still Pending Cases for Execution, including even on some among the Most Serious Violations of Human Rights, as, f.ex., that of "MISSING" People and Victims' Families, etc., Many of whom still Vainly Wait for Justice to be done, according to the Principles that ECHR's well established Case-Law had clearly published and reiterated even recently)...


Wouldn't it be obviously Better, if one applied, in the case of Human Rights Violations' Victims, the Same rapid Celerity, Hasty Moves, and sharply Shortened Time Deadlines, as f.ex. those which UnExpectedly, withOut any Previous Warning, and Contrary to the Established Practice, Suddenly, provoked, Earlier Today, an Exceptionaly Short "Annual Press Conference" at the ECHR, with Only a Few Tens of Minutes for all Strasbourg Journalists' (supposed to Express the main Concerns of more than 800 Millions of People throughout all CoE's PanEuropean area !) Questions/Replies in a whole Year (i.e. 365 Days !), something Never Seen Before in more than 24 Years of ECHR's Press Experience (+9/1993-2017), which practicaly Hindered us (and, perhaps, also others, if we wereNot the Only one Targetted) to have a Real Chance to Raise Any Topical Question on Human Rights developments at an ECHR's Press Conference for a whole Year, (after also several Time-Destroying, various sly Harassments during particularly the Last Few Days, notoriously Overloaded with Many Interesting and Important CoE's and Other Activities) ?


Naturaly, if it's also the Victims of serious Human Rights Violations who might have a Chance, for their badly and Urgently Needed Protection, to Benefit from such Fast-Track, Quick-Fix, Exceptionaly Shortened Procedures, in order to Obtain Justice, then, obviously, they would be very Glad to do so, and the PanEuropean Mechanism for the Protection of Humab Rights would Work much Better than that, for the General European Interest, and of that of any Good and Honest People in our Continent, whose History is written also Here and Now...

Brixen-Bressanone/ACM/3.8.08

dsc00382_400_01 

An appeal to make the "World more Human", by defending basic Human Values, helping those in need, and paying hommage to Nature, figured high in Pope Benedict's long-awaited speech at his "First Angelus" in the symbolic, beautiful historic small town of Brixen/Bressalone at the Alpes.

- "No Dictature, nor any destructive force can rob us of the most important goods wich are God's gift", stressed Pope Benedict, referring to elementary Human Values, in a last-minute improvisation of his draft speech, before launching also a call to "help those in need", in order to "make the World more human".

- "Jesus is the focus .. In him is Justice and Freedom", said earlier Brixen's Bishop Wilhelm Egger, after prayers including calls to "Truth, Justice and Freedom", read at a Mass of thousands in the town of Archangel Michael, known as defender of christians against the devil.

In what looks as a reference to BioEthics' dillemas of crucial impportance, raised at Strasbourg's unique in the World legally binding International Treaty on BioMedicine and Human Rights (1998, with the "hottest" issues added later through additional protocols, some of whom are imminent), he spoke also of the splendid "Nature" at this Alpen's ressort : This fits well Vatican's earlier anouncement that Pope Benedict's "prayer intentions for August" are mainly to "respect God's design for the world", and "become ever more aware of the great gift of God which Creation represents for us".

- "The most important things in our lives cannot be bought, but are only given as holy gifts : The Sun and its Light, the Air that we breath, the Water, the beauty of Earth, Love, Friendship, Life itself", Pope Benedict added, extending also to Natural Environment, another topical issue after recent Climatic upheavals at several parts of the World.

The "preparation of Pope Benedict's visit to France", which currently heads the EU, at mid-September, among exceptionaly important Council of Europe meetings on Human Rights in Paris and Strasbourg, is part of his work, together with his "book on Jesus", during brief Summer Holidays in Brixen, said his Spokesman, Federico Lombardi.

- The Pope's message is mainly religious, theological. But we are living in a concrete world, and ideas may be taken by readers as references to the actuality. However, it's better to wait to se what the Pope will say in Paris and at Lourdes, added to EuroFora Lombardi, who is also Director of Vatican's Press Office.

Brizen/Bressanone is similar to Strasbourg by succeeding to make a fertile synthesis of Germanic and Latin sources of Europe, like the two local rivers who meet at the historical center of the town, among spectacular ressorts at mountains' hights.

Headquarters for an Historic Religious Seminar, it attracted recently also a Free University's Educational studies. Well-known as a long-time preferred rest place for former cardinal Radzinger and his brother Georg, it includes areas named "St Benedeto" and "St George"...

But Pope Benedict's first speech gave also another symbolic rendez-vous :

- "Next Wednesday, August 6, we shall commemorate the 30st anniversary from the death of late Pope Paul VI", who "concluded Vatican II", and "the Transfiguration of Jesus, mystery of the divine light, which exerced a unique fascination to his soul", he said to some 12.000 applauding People, among the happy few who succeeded to have a rare place for an open-air Mass inside the Domplatz a particularly sunny day at the Alpes.
