*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- As the forthcoming EU Heads of State/Government's Summit of 21-22 October is due to Deal also with "Digital Transformation", including "Global Partnerships", a relevant "Eurofora"s Proposal for the Creation of a "European Green SmartPhone", was Welcomed by a Top EU Official as "a Great Idea", pending a more detailed examination, in Response to Our Question at a Video-Press Briefing with Brussels, under condition of Anonymity and "off the record", because of the delicate character of such a matter, Obviously Linked also with the Ecological/Green orientation of EU's current Big Economic ReVival Plan.

The Full, Detailed Proposal was made Initialy as Early as, Already Since July 2020, in an "Eurofora" Publication aiming to Help Bypass a Deadlock Risk during Harsh Negotiations, then, among EU Leaders at an Exceptionaly Long and "Hot" Summit in Brussels, apparently Divided on the EU's Big Socio-Economic ReVival Plan : By Creating strong Common Interests, through Ambitious and Popular Big Projects Innovating and Strengthening all Europe, such Sterile Divisions Could and should be easily ByPassed, "Eurofora" Believed then, as Also Nowadays..., (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/eurevivalsummitneedseuropeanvision.html, in fine).

  - "Angelo ! It's been a while... Don't make it Too Long, if you can."

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

"Eurofora": - "Dear Sir : 2 Questions, if you can :

- One, about the Energy... and ...Foreign Policy..." (See:

+ + And an absolutely Other (Topical)Issue : You spoke yourself about the (EU) Interest there is in order to <<Give a Push>> to the Digital aspect of the Economy, which EU Planned, as you know, Both on Ecology and Green :

=> Why not Find Ideas for Projects that could Link (precisely) the Digital and the Green ?

- I think, f.ex., at the Creation of a European SmartPhone, which Could be a "European Green SmartPhone", with Lower Radiations, and Other aspects, f.ex. Independent or New O.S., (even China Wanted to Cooperate with us on this Global Issue), etc.

- "In order to have something Concrete for the (EU) Citizens, But also very Important for the Economy, and Important for Europe's Sovereignity".

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

    - "OK, You made your Point"...     

-"I can Answer Any Question, But Not Sure that I can give a Satisfactory Answer". ....

 + "dOn Your ("Eurofora"'s) .. Question :

- "There is an Answer : I have My Limitations on the Topic..."

    -'I See the Link one may make between the Digital, Green, and Possible <<Green Smart-Phone>>, which seems to be a Great Idea !".

- "But, to be Frank, I am Not as Good to Answer, (Because) I am Not Aware of the Debates", between EU Member States on such Issues.

=> -"May be, we can Find someone to give you a Clear Answer, and Provide you with the Right FeedBack on this", he wished.

- Indeed, "I think that this 2nd Question could be More Appropriate for someone who is Working for the (EU) Commission", concretely Suggested anOther EU Official.

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

+ In order to Facilitate things, "Eurofora" Re-Publishes, here, anew, the Full Abstracts concerning Our relevant Initial Proposal, as it had been presented Already since that Crucial EU Brussels' 7/2020 Summit :

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

<< ... => Indeed, Europe and its People mostly Need Ambitious and Far-Reaching, Common Big PanEuropean Projects, able to trigger the Enthousiasm of EU Citizens, and Satisfy Vital Needs of Wide Impact, Bringing Together, in Close Cooperation, Efficient Coordination, Unified Planification, and Joint Action, Firmly Uniting as Many as possible among EU Member Countries.


    >>> In other words, Big and Important PanEuropean Projects, Intelligently Designed, so that they Can Include also Poor and/or Devastated Areas and Populations, Hardly Hit by any Hazards, Natural or Man-made Catastrophes, as well as Normally Functioning EU Member Countries, and some Pioneer, Ultra-Performant Champions, Able to Imagine, Organize and Lead, a productive Dynamic Union, capable to Create Operational, Fundamental Common Interests, (See, f.ex.: ... + ..., etc).


    This Obviously is a very Different View, from that of Mere "Help", allegedly given mainly by Some Countries, to certain Other, Poor and/or Devastated, Foreign Countries, Elsewhere, withOut Any other Link between them, and/or Any such kind of "Distributing" Money and/or Assets among Separate Entities, acting Disparately, Each one on Its Own, in Separate, National, or even Regional, Independent and UnRelated Mini-Projects, practically Ignoring Each-Other...


    The First Case, can Create Real "Cohesion"; (seeked also by EU 2020 Chair, German Chancellor Angie Merkel : See .., etc), and even Unity of Interests, Common Aspirations, Joint Purpose. But the Second Case, Inevitaby Risks to Provoke, on the Contrary, Division, Opposition, Different Interests, Separation, even more or less Conflicts !


    => In Consequence, f.ex., Mr. Rutte, from the point of View of his North-Western Netherlands, he speaks about ..."the South" (Comp. Supra), where, he's Afraid, (Rightly or Wrongly), that, soon, They might, Even ..."Not See" Anymore his Country, (f.ex. if Unanimity was Lifted inside EU Council : Comp. Also Supra). And Austrian Prime Minister Kurz, is Concerned about How to "Explain to Our (Austrian) TaxPayers", according to "Which Criteria", and "Where Will Go" the EU Money, (f.ex. in Italy's "Messogiorno" or in Spain, etc., i.e. Far Away, and withOut Any real Connexion)...


    On the Contrary, let's take, f.ex., an Entirely Different Case, (currently still Hypothetic, But Topical, Possible and Useful to Realise Nowadays), like the Invention and Production, in and by Europe, of what could be Named as a ..."Green (Smart) Phone" ! I.e. a Possible PanEuropean Project, Concerning Both "Digitalisation", "Environment" and Human Health, as well as "Europe's Role in the World", (Comp. Supra, and: ..., etc), and, Obviously, Economy and Jobs. Such an Innovative Product, could Fill a Gap among Ordinary Current Smart-Phones, First of all, by Aiming to Create a Modern Phone withOut Too Much Electro-Magnetic Waves on the Human Body and/or Head, (something which, Unfortunately, does No More Exist among Most, if not All, Recent SmartPhones, Currently at the Global Market), f.ex. as Finland's "Nokia" and/or France's former "Alcatel" had reportedly Planned to do, just a Few Years Ago, But were, apparently, Hindered to realize, for UnKnown Reasons. Many People and Medical Doctors, Reearchers, etc., Notoriously Believe that such "EMW" Might be, more or less Dangerous for Human Health, and Official Data, either in the USA, or Even in the WHO, Recently Lack, about the Exact Levels of Anodyne or, on the Contrary, potentialy Dangerous "EMW"s... + In Addition, Europe has the Means, (and even the Need : f.ex. for "Digital Sovereignity" : Comp. Supra), to Add also an Original, Independent "Operation System" Software, ("OS"), for such a New, European SmartPhone, which would Make it a Rare, if not Unique Nowadays, such product, which would Not be Obliged to be Submitted to the Notorious Oligo-Monopolistic OS of Americans "Android" (of "Google" Giant) or "Apple", which currently Dominate the World, with various Abuses. Indeed, already, China has Recently Proposed to Europe to Help it Financially to Create (by the EU) such an Independent, Brand New OS for SmartPhones, (in order to Face Hostile Pressure and Bullying from USA's "Android") ! In this regard, Probably, inter alia, f.ex., a Europe-Oriented French Company, based at Grenoble, which Currently Develops and Operates a "Lin-Phone", Based on "Linux" European Independent OS, (to whom German mainstream Medias as "Die Welt" had Refered, Already since 2013, when the Edouard Snowden's Global Scandal about US Mass Spying at the Web had emerged, Including Even Chancellor Merkel's own 2 Smart-Phones [sic !]), may be Practicaly Useful... In addition, Perhaps, it could be Interesting, (also as a Landmark Commercial PanEuropean"Plus" in Global Competition), if EU Associated, here, something as the Recently Created ... "Immune System", New OS for Smart-Phones, just Designed by Famous Russian "Kaspersky" Company's CEO himself, in order to Protect it from Web "Virus" and/or various Other "Cyber-Attacks", as he Announced in a landmark INTW published by "TASS". And, concerning such a Multi-Innovative "Green Phone", it would Certainly be Useful and Logical to Even Add anOther, Recently Invented, relevant Capability : That of a Smart-Phone with ...2 Screens, (Independently Operating Both or Each), One of which Serves particularly in case of Lack of Sufficient Electricity, (f.ex. at the Country-side, or After Intense Use DownTown, etc), since it Consumes Only a Small, Tiny Quantity of Electricity ! This was Initially Created by a Russian Company, linked to Nearby Frankfurt in Germany, as a PanEuropean tool, Used f.ex. Even throughout ...Siberia (sic !), and was Later, further Developed also by a Chinese Company, with European Links, which First Presented it at a recent ...Berlin's Annual Digital Fare, often Inaugurated by Merkel, (See, f.ex.: ..., etc).

=> All this Could Timely Result into a Landmark, Innovative and Unique, PanEuropean "Green Phone", Able to Join 4 relevant useful Digital Innovations (Comp. Supra), and, Eventually, Associate Interesting Cooperation with Russia and/or China (Comp. Supra), for the Design, Production and Commercialisation of which, the Best would be "NOKIA" of Finland, (i.e. anOther EU Country, Often Associated to the "Frugal 4" Critics of EU's "Recovery Fund" : Comp. Supra), which Notoriously was the Historic European ... Pioneer Birthplace of Smart-Phones, the First in the World ! But the Most Interesting thing, for EU's "Recovery" Plans, is that, Currently, "NOKIA" was reportedly Obliged, After the Virus' Crisis, to just Announce the Imminent Shut-Down of several among its Factories in France, Affecting Many Thousands of Workers, Technicians, etc., (including those Formerly of "Alcatel" and anOther ex-French Company, also Near Strasbourg, in Brittany, etc, that the Finnish had, meanwhile, Bought) ! >>> So that, such a Move, could Obviously result into a very Interesting European Project, of Both Social, Economic, Innovative, Ecological, Digital, and EU "Sovereignity" in the World, Policies, precisely Supported by EU's "ReVival Fund" and the InComing German EU Presidency's priorities, as they were recently presented by Angie Merkel at EU Parliament in Brussels, earlier This Month (See: ..., etc) !


>>> As a Consequence, inter alia, f.ex., Northern Scandinavian EU Member Country Finland, could No More speak about those Factories currently Threatened to Close Down in France, (Comp. Supra), as if they might Concern Only a so-called ..."South", (i.e. Contrary to what the Head of "Frugal" Countries, Dutch Prime Minister Rutte, just did at EU Summit in Brussels : Comp. Supra), since those Smart-Phone Factories are, precisely, ...Its Own Network's Properties, (Controled by Finnish Company "NOKIA") !


+ Then, Even Mr. Rutte himself, Might, perhaps, Start to Find it somehow Difficult to Continue to Separate the "North" from the "South" of Europe, inter alia, Also by the Fact that, by a Coincidence, His Own Phone reportedly is a Finnish ..."NOKIA" (Comp Supra)... >>

 politkovskaya_gongadze_adali_400

Hu Jia's prize brings SAKHAROV's wife to "EuroFora" on murders of Journalists Politkofskaya, Gongadze and Adali :

- Elena Bonner : "All Journalists' murders must be fully investigated", without Double Standards.                                                                                    

During a special Mega-Event to celebrate 20 Years of SAKHAROV Prize for "Freedom of Thought", attributed in 2008 by EU Parliament to jailed Chinese Cyber-Dissident Hu JIA, the move was reinforced by strongly criticizing the persisting impunity in three cases of Journalists' Murders, such as POLITKOVSKAYA in Russia, GONGADZE in Ukraine, and ADALI in Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus.

Any bureaucratic doubt about whether Cyber-dissidents like Hu JIA might have, or not, a right to be protected as all Journalists must be, particularly when they take risks to search, find and publish original and critical News on issues of general interest to the society, could not resist to the emotion provoked by the message of his Wife, Zeng JINYAN spectacularly transmitted at a big screen in EU Parliament's hemicycle :

- "The most important and most interesting thing he did was to ... say the Truth :.. to write about the phenomena he observed... He never stopped Publishing.. on websites, so that the Public could learn about the reality .. and understand it.  In my view, this has been his greatest contribution", stressed the young wife of the jailed man, eager to cite also the cases of other critical journalists who faced various kinds of "harassment".

 - "Welcoming all those who have suffered for defending Human Rights", EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING, who had invited to Strasbourg all former Sakharov prize-winners from various Countries throughout the World, said that "China needs Europe, and Europe needs China : A great nation" with which "we want to have a good relationship", "association and ..friendship". "But we are never going to stop our fight for Human Rights, and No Government can expect this from us".

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of Peace, if Human Rights are left out. In fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.

    It's in this spirit that MEPs adopted, on Thursday, a Resolution denouncing that "the criminal
investigation and trial following the murder of (a) Journalist ...raises serious concerns with regard to transparency and respect for the rule of law", when a "brutal killing has not yet been fully investigated and solved in a satisfactory way".

    The text refered to dissident Journalist "Anna POLITOVSKAYA", a critic of Tchechen conflict, killed some years ago in Moscow, where Russian Authorities have found, arrested and are currently judging two executants, while also searching to arrest also a 3rd one, allegedly escaped in Belgium. But they have not yet found the instigators.

     Similar texts were adopted recently also on dissident Ukranian Journalist Georgiy GONGADZE's murder, for which Ukranian Authorities have at least found, arrested and condemned 2 executants to 12 and 13 Years of jail, but not yet the instigators. For that purpose, they recently accepted an International Experts team to participate to the investigations.     

But, it's only for the Murder of dissident Turkish Cypriot Journalist ADALI, in the occupied territories of Cyprus, that Turkey has NOT yet found ANYONE responsible, and even claimed recently inside CoE that it would be "impossible" to do so !    

These astonishing differences exist despite the fact that ECHR condemned alike Ukraine and Turkey with 2 Judgements on the same year : 2005, for the murders of  Journalists GONGADZE and ADALI, strong critics of Corruption in Ukraine, and of Ankara's policies on mass-influx of Turkish Settlers in the Occupied Territories of Cyprus, respectively.    

Regarless of that, CoE's Committee of Ministers, who is entrusted with the duty to supervise execution of ECHR's judgements, has just asked Ukraine's Government to reply to further questions on Gongadze's murder before March 2009, while Turkey, curiously, got a longer postponement for answering questions on Adali's murder, until June...   

A comparison of these cases, raises serious questions about Double Standards :

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

On TRANSPARENCY :
--------------------------
    On Gongadze's murder, CoE's body speaks even about the participation of
"an INTERNATIONAL group of Experts" in the Investigation, (f.ex. of "Tape Recordings"), accepted by Ukraine.
    On the contrary, on Adali's murder, CoE is obliged to repeatedly ask (for a 2nd
time) Turkey whether, at least, it informed the victims' Family, or not...
------------------------------
- On EFFICIENCY :
-----------------------
On Gongadze's murder, CoE formally "recalls that the Committee (of Ministers) ..URGED the Ukranian authorities.. to TAKE ALL NECESSARY INVESTIGATIVE STEPS TO ACHIEVE CONCRETE and VISIBLE RESULTS in the INVESTIGATION, aimed at the Identification of the INSTIGATORS and Organisers of the Murder", and "STRONGLY INVITED the Ukranian Authorities to provide information on the PROGRESS IN THE INVESTIGATION", before MARCH 2009.

But, on Adali's murder, on the contrary, CoE's body merely .. "took note" of the "arguments presented by" Cyprus, which denounce the absence of any proof of new "investigation" by Turkey. Following Turkey's own suggestion (!), it simply "noted" that there is "no limitation period" for "any new element" to "lead potentialy (sic !) to a Re-Opening of the Investigation". Without saying who might find any such "new" fact, since Turkey stoped searching... It also POSTPONED the issue until .. JUNE  !
-----------------------
 - On the PUNISHMENT OF THOSE RESPONSIBLE :
----------------------
 -  On Gongadze's murder case, Ukranian Authorities already arrested and condemned, at least 2 suspects, to 12 and 13 Years of jail. And on Politkovskaya's murder at least 2 suspects are judged, and a 3rd one "wanted".

On the contrary, on Adali's murder case, the Turkish authorities simply claim that "it had not been possible to obtain new .. information .. on the basis of which criminal charges could be brought against ANY person" !...

Moreover,  a LETTER sent by Turkey ...2 Years after CoE's 2006 call to re-investigate anew Adali's murder case, is totally EMPTY of Facts ! As Cypus' Delegation denounced earlier, Turkey's Letter ONLY CLAIMS that a "New Investigation" was made without any result, but does NOT even cite ANY FACT to prove it :

F.ex.,on the crucial issue of the "MOTIVATIONS" behind Adali's murder, noted by ECHR, Turkey MERELY CLAIMS that "all allegations  were investigated; without result", but OMITS ANY FACT TO PROVE IT !..(It doesn't even remind which were these "allegations").. .

+ On ECHR's astonishment that the Turkish Occupation regime didn't produce any "BALLISTIC REPORT" on the Shots which murdered Adali, Turkey again repeats, 12 years later, that, still, even until now, "it  was not possible to obtain the BalisticReport"...

- As for the astonishing absence of key-WITNESSES' Testimonies, denounced by ECHR, Turkey agains repeats various pretexts avoiding to reveal anything, (Fex. that a person "left" the Occupied Territories  "on 2002", or that another witness was heard, but without revealing nothing of what he said, etc).

Turkey obviously "FAILS TO MEET THE CRITICISM made BY THE COURT" for lack of any efficient Investigation in Adali's case, concluded Cyprus' Government.
---------------------------------------------
Replying to our Question which COMPARED these 3 outstanding cases of "JOURNALISTS MURDERS", Adali, Gongadze and Politkovskaya, in order to avoid "Double Standards" by asking from Ukraine and Russia more than what is asked EU candidate Turkey, many European personalities were critical /

They criticised Ankara's recent claim at the CoE to stop investigating, because it would be "impossible to find anyone" responsible for the 5 bullet shots which killed Kutlu ADALI in front of his Family Home, contrary to the other two Journalists' murders, where Ukraine and Russia at least arrested the executants, searching now for the instigators :
----------------------------------

imag0103_400

    - "Where was that ? In Turkish Occupied Cyprus ? WITHOUT ANY DOUBT : Any murder of Journalist should be investigated in full ! All these Murders must be investigated !", replied the famous SAKHAROV's wife, Elena BONNER to our question on Adali's case, compared to Gongadze and Politofskaya.

    Elena Bonner spoke us EXCLUSIVELY shortly after being honored by the President
of EU Parliament on the occasion of 20 Years of her husband's SAKHAROV Prize.

    A strong personality, Sakharov's wife even had to struggle against an anonymous EU staffer who, astonishingly, tried to stop her speaking when h heard our question on "Turkey" (!) : - "Please, let me translate, she continues
speaking, don't stop us !", had to cry Sakharov's daughter, (a Journalist
herself), who was translating her mothers' reply, (obliged to speak louder to
make her voice heard despite the harassment).. (= + Audio Proof !)

    Earlier, Elena Bonner also fustigated "Double Standards" at another case, on
Western countries' attitude vis a vis Kosovo and the Kurds : -F.ex. "You have
recognized a few 400.000 Kosovars as an "independent" country, but you still
deny that to 30 millions of Kurds in Turkey !", she denounced.
-----------------------------
    - "This (ADALI's murder) is an issue which should be pursued by the Committee
for Human Rights. That's why we have one, and it's its duty to examine cases of
Journalists' murders as the one you referred to. You should bring the case in
front of that Committee", suggested in reply to our question on Adali, EU
Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING.

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of PEACE, if HUMAN RIGHTS are left out :
in fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.
--------------------------------------
    + "For us (European/International Federation of Journalists) it's clear :
Whenever a Journalist is Murdered, the Investigation should continue until
those Responsible are found !", replied earlier to another question on ADALI
EFJ/IFJ's Secretary General, Aidan WHITE.

    Speaking as a matter of General Principle, White asked us for "concrete data"
on the execution of ECHR's judgement on Adali case, in order to "look at it in
depth" and "make a formal statement", in comparison with the other Murdered
Journalist case, also pending at CoE's  Ministers for completing its execution,
on Ukranian Gongadze.
----------------------------------------------------
     From EU Rapporteur on Human Rights, vice-President of EU Parliament Liberties' Committee, MEP Giusto CATANIA, we were told that, since there is an ECHR judgement in both Adali and Gongadge's cases, "Turkey must naturally execute the judgement and make a full and efficient investigation, until those responsible for the Journalist's murder are found and punished".

    Even if "we (Catania's "EuroLeft" Group) support Turkey's EU perspectives, this does not mean that Ankara should not behave properly. On the contrary, it means that they have to meet tough conditions, particularly on Human Rights", was added on the occasion of Adali's murder case.

    Moreover, "since you raise the issue of Mr. Adali's muder as a part of a Series of Journalist's murders, including fex. Gongadze, Politkovskaya, ao., tthen we (EU) could also act together with CoE's Commissioner on Human Rights, Thomas HAMMARBERG, it was suggested.

    - "We (EU) must step up efforts against the problem of IMPUNITY : Real Peace cannot exist without Justice",  stressed also this week at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, French Minister on Human Rights, Mrs Rama YADE.
