*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...

    - "Europe must be liberated from this undermining "wooden talk" of a "unique thought" which hampers democratic debates", stressed incoming EU Chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy, speaking to Journalists after his official meeting with EU Commission's President, Jose Barroso, at Elysee Palace in Paris

    - "It's precisely because there are not enough Debates, that EU hasn't managed yet to make it clear to European citizens what is really at stake", he added, in an obvious reference to the latest Irish "No" in 2008, after a long series of similar, unprecedented events, from the 1st Majority Abstention to EU Parliament's Elections in 1999, repeated in 2004, to the Dutch and French "No" in 2005, etc.

          In fact, "there is no time to lose for Europe, and that's why we decided to start the French EU Presidency right away, from the first day", he explained, on France's exceptional choice to schedule the usual meeting with EU Commission from the 1st day of the 1st month, instead of the 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th or even 10th or 11th, as it had been done by others in the Past..    


    - "This is not an easy period, but we shall act with determination, while also listening to Citizens' views", he promised.

    Sarkozy's move came shortly before his opening Speech, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, for the first Public Debate on the Priorities of the French EU Presidency (July - December 2008), and that's one of the reasons for which he significantly opened his EU Council's Chairmanship by welcoming at Elysee palace EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering at first..

    The incoming EU Chairman was replying to Press Questions about rumours that controversial British EU Commissioner on Trade, Mandelson, was alone to drop an invitation to have a working Diner at Elysee palace, together with all other EU Commissioners and the French Government, only because he would have been upset for some critical points made earlier by President Sarkozy in defense of European Agriculture vis-a-vis its Foreign competitors.

    But, as smiling Sarkozy played down Mandelson's reported refusal to debate, saying that he had to visit Marseille for a Ministerial meeting on Trade the next morning, and that "all our British friends are always welcome to taste a nice diner" in France, perhaps at another occasion..

    - "It's urgent to win anew the trust of the People" : Lately, "the European ideal lost its momentum. Since several years, whenever Citizens are questioned on Europe, they react with reserves : They even have .. a tendency to reply "NO".. After this 3rd "No" of a People in some years, there is an Urgency to convince", added French Prime Minister Francois Fillon, after a meeting earlier the same day of all Ministers with EU Commissioners, followed by an interview with Barroso

    "According to recent Polls, only 30% of French people believe that the European construction is a source of hope. It's only a poll, but we all now quite well, that, since 2005, it's dangerous to neglect these alarming signals, as it would be dangerous to treat with contempt the Irish "No", Fillon warned.

    "We all have a common duty to prove to the European Citizens who have doubts, that EU is more useful, more necessary, than ever" : And "that EU can take decisions needed in order to respond to European or Global challenges", the Prime Minister concluded.

    - "We believe, together with President Sarkozy, that EU should open debates on all issues of direct, concrete interest to Citizens", confirmed later to EuroFora the Head of France's governing party (UMP), Patrick Devedjan, after his speech to the European People's party (EPP) Study Days in Paris (2 - 4 July 2008).

    He didn't deny that one of them is Turkey : - "Public Opinion in France is very much unfavorable to Turkey's EU bid, and President Sarkozy has said that several times", he told EuroFora.

    From European Central Bank's controversial policies on Euro's value, to EU Enlargement Strategy, etc., issues of obvious importance to EU Citizens will be plenty, next week in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, before President Sarkozy launches the debates on EU 2008 French chairmanship's priorities on Thursday.

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 ?
