*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...

(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.
