*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- CoE Assembly's Experienced CEO, Wojciech Sawicki, speaking to "Eurofora" a.o. Journalists Invited to the Video-Press Briefing on the forthcoming 1st 2021 Plenary Session (25-28 January) of the PanEuropean, 47 Member Countries-strong (Russia included) Parliamentary body, under German Chairmanship (November 2020 - May 2021), Pointed to the Importance of a New Report on ECHR Judgements' Execution, which might Hold a "Key" on Solving the Deleterious for Basic Human Rights Problem of Turkey's stubborn Refusal to Implement ECHR's Judgements Condemning her on particularly "Hot" Issues, such as Cyprus' "Missing" People and Refugees from the Occupied Territories of the Island, even More than 45 Years since the 1974 Foreign Military Invasion by Ankara's Army, still Persisting at this Strategic EU Island until Nowadays.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Contrary to what has already happened in Other Areas of the World, including Even Latin America, etc., and Despite ECHR's Crystal-Clear Case Law, Nobody has yet been Found and Punished among those Responsible for Tragic Dramas inflicted by Turkey among more than 1.500+ Greek Cypriot "Missing" People and their Families, while Many ECHR's Judgements Condemning Turkey for blatant Violations of Cyprus' Refugees/Displaced People's Rights to their Family Homes and Properties, Still Remain Scandalously UnImplemented, withOut Restitutions, not even Full Indemnisation, (but Only 1 Partial Exception dating from 2004, made in Exchange of a Political Concession by the EU, then).

    But a New CoE Report's Recent "Addendum" on ECHR Judgements' Implementation might hold a "Key" in UnLocking Turkey's Stubborn Obstruction at "Hot" Human Rights Issues, such as "Missing" People or Refugees from Cyprus' Invaded and Occupied Territories still held by Ankara's Foreign Army.

    - Despite some Pressure to Stop PACE's Tradition for such Regular Reports, Public Debates and Resolutions voted by MEPs, on ECHR Judgements' Execution, Nevertheless, -"We (CoE's Assembly) Insist" to Continue doing so, Firmly Stressed the Experienced CoE's Senior Official, since this Obviously Allows to Openly Denounce various eventual Wrong-doings, Propose and/or Promote Alternative Solutions, Call for possible Sanctions against Too much Recalcitrant States, (as, particularly, Turkey, a.o.), etc, Instead of merely Swiping it all Under the Carpet...

    => In this case, the Latest "Addendum" to the bi-Annual PACE Report on ECHR Judgements' Application, Drafted by Cypriot MEP Eftymiou (an Atypical "Socialist"), indeed, contains a very Interesting Hypothesis :

    - In order to Overcome Turkey's Stubborn Refusal to Pay Any Financial Indemnisation of Greek Cypriot Refugees for the Persisting Usurpation of their Belongings at the Occupied Territories of Cyprus, a Refugee lodged a Legal Complaint allowing him, as well as other Victims, to seize an equivalent amount from EU Funds earmarked for Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU "Accession" bid...

 => After an Initial EU Commission's Refusal, that Case, originaly known as "Ramon v. Turkey", Recently came at EU's ECJ at nearby Luxembourg, where it's now Pending.

  It practicaly means that, Now, ECJ holds a "Key" able to UnBlock a Previously Deadlocked and Scandalous Situation, where Turkey was Refusing for Many Years to Implement ECHR's Judgements on Refugees' Homes and Properies, or "Missing" Persons' Families, etc., (Comp. Supra), withOut leaving, Until Now, Any Other Alternative to the CoE's Committee of Ministers, responsible for overseing ECHR Judgements' Execution, but Only an inevitably ..."Majochistic" Repetition of purely Verbative CoE's "Calls" upon Ankara to, at last, Honour its Commitments, with Turkey Always Refusing to do so, during too Many Years, withOut Any Sanction Yet... (See, f.ex., at: .., etc).

In Other Words, from now on, EU-CoE Cooperation Can Solve a serious Problem about ECHR Judgements' Respect by Turkey, which had Ridiculized recently the PanEuropean Mechanism for the protection of Human Rights.

 Significant of the Importance that PACE currently Gives to that New Report for ECHR Judgements' Execution is also the Fact that it was the 1st Report citted at Today's Video-Press Briefing on the forthcoming 1st PACE Plenary Session for 2021, and is also Scheduled to be the 1st CoE's Report due to get Debated and Voted, Next Week, Starting from Tuesday, Jan. 26...

    UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brownn's promise to French President Sarkozy that Great Britain will proceed to Lisbon Treaty's ratification was certainly fuelled further by MEPs' warning, meanwhile in Strasbourg, that all Enlargement stops until EU can have efficient Institutions for more than 27 member Countries.    

    EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, formally announced this position, after consulting all Political Groups' Chairmen, Monday in Strasbourg, and most MEPs made the point crystal clear during Plenary Debates on Wednesday.   

     Thus, from Thursday, UK's House of Commons, at Westminster, gave its "Green Light" to Lisbon Treaty's ratification, which was completed later-on, after ovecoming some last minute attempts to block the process.

    - In only 3 other Member Countries we feel some "hesitations" : Poland, Czech Republic and Cyprus", said, meanwhile, EU Chairman-in-office, Slovenian Foreign Minister, Dr. Dimitri Ruppel, speaking to EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee in Strasbourg, However, "I didn't hear any explicit refusal", he carefully added.

    Rupel's fears were later bellied in Cyprus' case, where a wide majority of political parties confirmed their support to the EU Treaty, but fears were confirmed in Poland's case, while Czechs said they waited for their Constitutional Court to pronounce itself.

    A paradox is that the Polish President Lech Kaczynski, who reportedly expressed concerns about Lisbon Treaty, had personally signed himself its blueprint, while, on the contrary, Cyprus' new President, Christofias, despite its own party's opposal, declared that he'll respect the signature of his precedessor, former President Tassos Papadopoulos, in favor of EU Treaty.

    But, "all that noise is a misinterpretations by some Western Media : Poland will ratify the EU Treaty, and even earlier than some other Member Countries", declared to "EuroFora", in a surprisingly optimistic tone, the Polish Chairman of EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, Jacek Saryuswolski...

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 ?
