*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...

(Opinion).

 In Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs, as the New EU Parliament's President, new EU Commission's President (+ probably EU Council's President, EU Foreign Minister, etc) should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies.

At the heart of the biggest EU Countries, in France and Germany, EU Citizens clearly voted for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe based on Values, declared explicitly incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

This main choice was also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries, such as Austria (cf. promise of a Referendum), Spain (cf. EPP program's reservations vis a vis Enlargment), etc., while EPP Parties won also in Poland, Hungary, Cyprus, etc.

In other Countries, whenever Governing coalitions didn't make these choices or eluded them, continuing to let a Turkish lobby push for its entry into the EU, they paid a high price, and risked to damage Europe, by obliging EU Citizens to massively vote for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to offer a possibility to promise  real change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU :

It's for this obvious reason that British UKIP (IndDem) succeeded now (after many statements against Turkey's EU bid) to become Great Britain's 2nd Party, unexpectedly growing bigger even than the Governing Labour Party, as well as the Liberal party  ! Facts prove that it's not an isolated phenomenon : A similar development occured in the Netherlands, where Geert Wilders "Party for Freedom" (PVV) became also the 2nd biggest in the country, (after EPP), boosting the chances of a politician who had withdrawn in 2004 from an older party "because he didn't agree with their position on Turkey". And in several other EU Member Countries, even previously small parties which now focused on a struggle against Turkey's controversial demand to enter in the EU, won much more or even doubled the number of their MEPs (fex. Bulgaria, Hungary, Greece, etc).

On the contrary, whenever Socialist and oher parties were explicitly or implicitly for Turkey's controversial EU bid, they obviously lost Citizens' votes and fell down to an unprecedented low.

In consequence, EU Citizens clearly revealed their main political choices, in one way or another : They voted to change for less Bureaucracy, but more Politics and Values in a Europe really open to EU Citizens, but without Turkey's controversial EU bid.

Recent political developments are obviously different from the old political landscape which existed in the Past of 1999-2004, when Socialists based on Turkish 1% vote governed undisputed not only in Germany, but also in the UK, Greece and elsewhere, France followed old policies decided when it had been divided by "cohabitation", before the 3 "NO" to EU  Referenda since May 2005, before Merkel, before Sarkozy, etc.... before the surprises of 7 June 2009 new EU Elections.

If the current candidates to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, OK.

Otherwise, Europe must find new candidates, really motivated and able to implement these democratic choices of the People.

The beginning of crucial, final Decisions are scheduled for the 1st EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg, in the middle of July, and they could be completed towards the October session, when Lisbon Treaty's fate will have been fixed.
