*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Astonishingly, the Only Known recent Measures taken by EU Commission and/or Council Nowadays on Medicine against the Deadly Virus, Both on Cures and on Vaccines, are related to Controversial Issues about Genetic Manipulations that may Affect Human Persons !

 - Indeed, on July 3, 2020, EU Commission surprized by giving its 1st and Unique, until now, conditional Authorisation for a Cure against the Virus to Controversial, Twice Failed and repurposed, Former Anti-Hepatites and/or Anti-Ebola (where it made a "Flop"...) Drug "Remdesivir", a very Expensive, Patented to Multinational Corporation "Gilead", USA product, of totaly UnProven yet Efficiency vis a vis the Still Too High Number of Deaths provoked by the Virus, whose Only alleged Effect would be to sometimes Shorten, a bit, the Time for Recovery, Even if this Claim appears too Shaky, ill-Based on Controversial, UnControlable, UnCertain and UnReliable Data, of just 1 UnFinished Trial, (See Facts at: ..., etc).

"Remdesivir", which Costs about ...3.120 $ per 5 Days, or 6.240 $ per 10 Days of Treatment, is given Only by IntraVenous Infusion, inside a Hospital, under Close Medical Monitoring, and its Production Depending from a Licence by Corporatio "Gilead" (which Holds a Patent), has Many Troublesome "Side-Effects", and is Not Yet of Proven Safety, until now, acts by Penetrating inside Human Cells, Affecting their RNA/DNA, and (hopefuly) Blocking the Gene of a Protein related to the Replication of the Virus, at already Infected People.

It's Not yet clearly Known IF such a Genetic Manipulation on Humans, Clumsily pushed by some Lobbies behind "Gilead" on 3 successive more or less, sooner or later, Failed Attempts on Hepatites, Ebola, or COVID-2019, might be really "Safe", or Not, for Human Health in the Long Term... (F.ex. Cloning of Sheep Dolly was revealed Catastrophic only some Years Later)... 

On the Contrary, 3 Other, Already Known Drugs against the Virus, (mainly French "HCQ+", mainly Russian "Avifavir", and UK's "DexaMethaSone"), can be Easily Taken through simple Pils, Don't Cost almost Nothing, and, Most Importantly, revendicate a notable Efficiency able to Save Human Lives. At the same time, they appear Safe, and do Not Affect the Human Genome, (at least the first 2 of them). But, Curiously, EU Commission has Not yet shown Any Interest for them...

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

+ In Addition, Today : on July 14, EU Council has just announced a Surprizing Decision, concerning Vaccines against the Virus, to Exceptionaly Lift the Main Checks and Controls normaly due on Any "Genetically Modified Organisms" they might use in Tests, Storage, Transport, Distribution, and/or Operation throughout the Environment, and even inside Human Persons...

It means that the Prior "Environmental Risk Assessment", Normaly Due for any "GMO" "Deliberately Released into the Environment", and/or the Prior "Consent" (i.e. Authorisation), by the competent Public National Authority, for any "contained Use" of "GMO"s, (according to relevant 2001 and 2009 EU Directives), are No More Required when it comes to Trials, Storage, Transport, or Distribution, etc., of Any Vaccine related to the Virus !

- Only the "Sites where the Genetic Modification of Wild-type Viruses ... take place", i.e. in case of so-called "Investigational Medicinal Products", they continue to be Controlled as before, because of their Extreme Dangerosity. On All Other such cases, the usual Controls are Lifted.

This goes not only whenever such projects for Vaccines may "Contain GMOs", But Also when "they Consist in GMOs" (sic !) themselves... In Both cases, what is at Stake is eventual "Risks to Human Health, and the Environment".

Moreover, it applies Even in case of "Foreseeable Negative ...Impacts" on the Environment, etc. ! In that case, both the interested Private Companies and the concerned States, should Only try to ..."Minimise" any such "Negative ...Impacts" of those "GMOs", by any simply "Appropriate" "Measure", and, as far as "States" are concerned, Only ..."IF Feasible" (re-sic !!).

Such an Obviously Dangerous Measure, (which would Widely Apply as long as the WHO still qualifies the Situation as a "Pandemic", or, at least, the EU Commission as an "Emergency", for All, Both Pre-Existing and New Vaccine projects), was Added Only ...at the Last Minute in EU Parliament's Agenda, (where it was Absent at the "Final Draft Agenda !), using an "Urgent Procedure" for Vote...

Scandalously, Not even the Slightest public Debate didN't emerge among MEPs on that UnPrecedented and Important Issue for People's Health and the Environment, in the relevant July 2020 Session in Brussels, (where any such Debate was Absent, even in its Final Agenda) !  However, Despite all that, there were 5 Critical Amendments, which managed to Attract nearly ...All the Anti-Establishment MEPs, including 3 Political Groups and almost All "Independents", bringing Exceptionaly Together the "Left" and the "Greens" with the ...Rightists of "ID" and Independents, (as well as some Dissidents from "Liberals/Renew", "EPP", "Socialists"-the least, etc), and Resulting in such a diverse Opposition with almost 1/3 of the Votes in a Crucial Amendment (f.ex. about 220 - 470)...

It all Looks, mutatis-mutandis, almost Similar to that UnPrecedented Socio-Political Phenomenon, that had UnExpectedly Emerged, Recently, f.ex., in Italy, when Salvini's "Rightists" had Notoriously made, initially, an Alliance with the "5 Stars" Leftist Movement created by Bepe Grillo, soon resulting into a ...Majority Government, (before they were anew divided, much Later-on).

=> I.e., Tricky, Not so "Democratic" Methods on such Important (even Bio-Ethical) Issues, (Comp. Facts Supra), may, perhaps, Provoke some ..."Bumpy" Political Upheavals, in Popular Reactions, Afterwards, here or there, in one way or another...

 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 :
----------------------------------

    - "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.
