*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- Questioned by "Eurofora" if he was aware of a Risk even for the underlings who executed the Bomb Murder of Independent and critical Web-News Journalist Daphne Caruana-Galizia on 2017 in Malta, to get out of jail in a few Months, if the Enquiry did not result in a Condamnation 18 Months after their arrest, EU Parliament's President, Antonio Tajani, replied that European level action is on its way in this regard.


 - "We are Working on that", soberly but promptly replied EU Parliament's President, (an Experienced former twice EU Commissioner, Top MEP and Italy's Foreign Minister) to the above-mentioned "Eurofora"s Question.

+ In Fact, "we (EU Parliament) are Asking" from the Maltese Authorities "to Find an punish those who are the Instigators of that Murder", Tajani firmly stressed to "Eurofora", going right to the Essentials in that pending affair.

 - Paul, the Youngest Son of the Victim, speaking to "Eurofora" just a few Days Earlier, during a Visit in Strasbourg on the Anniversary of the Brutal Murder of his Mother, told us that "the Most Important" point about the state of affairs in the  on-going Enquiry, is, Nowadays, that the National Authorities may be Obliged to Free from Jail even the 2 Underlings held as suspects for Executing the Bombing of that Critical and Investigative Web Journalist, if there is Not yet a Judgement with a firm Condamnation 18 Months after their Arrest, which had taken place "on December" Last Year (2017) :
 
 

=> I.e., by a Symbolic Coincidence, practically almost soon After the European Elections of May 2019, (around June or July 2019), Marking the Fact that Efficient Action on this Emblematic Affair is another Key "Test" for Europe in front of EU Citizens' eyes...


President Tajani had just chaired a Special Event in honor of the Victim's Memory, Togeher with her Family, earlier this week in EU Parliament's Press Conference Room in Strasbourg, which bears the Name of Daphne Caruana-Galizia, (as its Brussels' Press-Briefing Room has the Name of Russian Dissident Journalist Anna Politovskaya).


Paul Caruana-Galizia had been, moreover, Invited, earlier, in an EU Citizens' Consultation, for the "Europe of Justice"/Home Affairs' Future, organized by CEIFAC, the "European College of Financial and Criminal Investigations", headed by Strasbourg University's Professor Chantal Cutajar, (See also : ..., etc).

______________


- During the Debates, the Youngest Son of the Murdered Web-News Independent Journalist, had emotionaly expressed his Support to any adequate Advance of European Edification in these areas, "which might have Saved the Life of My Mother", as he characteristicaly said for possible new EU Tools such as, f.ex., an Enhanced EU Prosecutor, the creation of a European Criminal Court, more Transparency in trans-Border Business/Financial Transactions, etc.

>>> F.ex., among others, - "We don't even Know Today Who are the Owners" of a Controversial Private Medical Centers' Mega-Project reportedly linked to a "Global" Network, backed by a Minister of Health/Tourism suspected for Corruption by his Murdered Mother as Web-News Investigative Journalist, that this strange Maltese Politician was "still Suing in the Courts, attacking her (and/or her Family) even Now", i.e. after her Death, as Paul told "Eurofora" earlier. A Foreign, Non-European Project, with a quite Foggy content, eventually Linked also with a Legislative Reform in Medical/BioEthical Issues, pushed by the current Maltese Prime Minister, who notoriously is a Close Pal of that Minister...


+ Recently, on the sidelines of CoE's PanEuropean Assembly's Plenary Session at the Beginning of October 2018, "Eurofora" Met and Discussed in Strasbourg also with the International Cordinator of the "Daphne Project", Jules Giraudat from Paris, (a Journalist himself too), who is overseeing the organisation of a Collective Pilot Project for original Investigations on the Murdered independent Web Journalist's main areas of interest, seeking for those who Assassinated her.

- Giraudat told us that this International Group, (including also several Mainstream Newspapers, TV Channels and other Medias, throughout the World), was striving to Both to Continue those Original Press Investigations that the Murdered Web Journalist had initiated hershelf, and to Find and UnMask those who pushed at her Brutal Murder, probably, inter alia, also that they had, perhaps, thought that she was Weak because Alone : Something that this landmark Group of Active Solidarity among Journalists Publishing original and critical NewStories of General Interest for the Society, wants to Challenge in real practice.

In this regard, he found Interesting an apparently UnExplored yet, "New" concrete Area for Investigations, suggested by "Eurofora", according also to Daphne's own Authentic circle of interests, (in Addition, and, probably, in Liaison with the already well known ones : f.ex. "Panama Papers", Money Laundering, ordinary Corruption, etc).

+ Meanwhile, the Lawyers of the critical Assassinated Web Journalist's Family, Barrister Jonathan Price, from "Doughty Street Chambers", and Tony Murphy, from "Bhatt Murphy Solicitors", both from London, UK, mainly Focused on ECHR's well-established case-law about each CoE Member State's Obligations to try to Prevent and/or Persecute efficiently all those who Violate the Human Right to Life, (according to the relevant PanEuropean Convention's Article 2).

=> During that CoE Assembly's "Side-Event", the PanEuropean Organisation for Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law's Rapporteur on Daphne's Murder, experienced Dutch ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP, Peter Omtzigt, warned that Maltese Authorities claim that they have not yet found sufficient Evidence for a process, and confirmed his Intention to Visit anew Malta and organize, afterwards, a 2nd Hearing, (Comp., for the 1st such Hearing, at the CoE in Strasbourg, : ..., etc).

    The incoming Swedish EU Presidency (July-December 2009) may still remain in favour of Turkey's controversial EU bid, despite June 2009 EU Elections' results, but it has "very strong demands on Turkey"'s obligation to respect EU Rules, said the Head of Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, Cecilia Julin, to "EuroFora", reacting to critical Press reports.

    - "I know (that) the link is often made also to Sweden's position on Turkey"'s controversial EU bid. Indeed, "we (Swedish EU Presidency) are very much engaged in the future membership of Turkey, but not without fullfiling all the Criteria".

    - "It's very clear that we (Swedish EU Presidecny) have very Strong Demands on Turkey, in a sort of concept for Future membership of the Union, ...which will be a Long Process...", she stressed.

    This means, in particular, "the Copenhagen Criteria (on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law), and also the adaptation to the Acquis of the European Union".

     - "If you listen to what Mr. Bildt (the Swedish Foreign Minister) says on Turkey at different occasions, it's very clear : We want Turkey to become part of the Union, in the Future. But we want it to fullfil all the Criteria : The Acquis of the European Union. That's very clear", she concluded.

    The Senior Official of the Swedish Foreign Ministry was reacting to critical Press Reports, from Brussels' Journalists invited by EU Commission's secretariat to Stockholm, who claimed that Bildt was abusing of a ..."Whip" (sic !) against Cyprus, by "threatening" the presence of UNO's Peace-keeping force at the "Green line" which separates the island's Government-controlled areas from the territories occupied by Ankara's army, if Nicosia didn't accept any political solution, regardless of Turkey's demands, before the end of 2009.

        Governing AKEL Party's new Secretary General, Andros Kyprianou, reacted by declaring that no-one can threat the People of Cyprus : -"We shall decide for our Future, and nobody else",  he reportedly said, asking to "keep calm". "In order to find a Solution soon, certain basic Principles must be respected", he stressed, calling those who feel an urgency to use their influence on Turkey. Other Political Parties were more critical.

    This was a reference to recently reported statements by Turkish Minister Bagis, Prime Minister Tayip Erdogan and Turkey's National Security Council (a Military-Political body), accused to push towards a partitionist "2 States" solution, contrary to UNO SC Resolutions for Cyprus' reunification.

    December 2009 is a crucial moment for EU's appraisal of Turkey's controversial EU bid, because EU Council has decided to review then Ankara's compliance with the European position on the recognition of Cyprus' Government, which was clearly set out by an EU reply of 21 September 2005 to Turkish Prime Minister Tayip Erdogan's claims, refusing to recognize even the existence of EU Member Cyprus, in controversial statements he made to London (former EU chair) on July 29, 2005.

    EU Parliament's latest Resolution on Turkey, adopted on March 2009 in Strasbourg, warned Ankara that "the non-fulfillment of Turkey's commitments... by December 2009, may further seriously affect the process of Negotiations" with the EU.

    In practice, the issue boils down to Ankara's "embargo" against Ships and Airplanes using Cyprus' seaports or airports at the strategic EU island, which traditionaly hosts one of the World's biggest Shipping flags. EU has already "freezed" 6 relevant Chapters in EU - Turkey Negotiations since December 2006, after Ankara refused to fullfil a commitment it had undertaken when EU had decided to open controversial "accession" negotiations with Turkey, back on December 2005.

    - "As far as EU - Turkey relations are concerned, it's clear that Turkey needs to fullfil its obligation of full, non-discriminatory implementation of the additional Protocol (to "EC-Turkey Association Agreement"),  This is an important issue....and should be addresseed as soon as possible as it clearly affects the pace of the accession negotiations.Issues covered by the Declaration of September 2005 will continue to be followed up, and progress is urgently awaited", warned earlier in Strasbourg the out-going Czech EU Presidency (former vice-Prime Minister Alexander Vodra).

    But the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, Cecilia Julin, dismissed "interpretations" by "some" that Foreign Minister Carl Bildt was reportedly "threatening" Cyprus with consequences on the UNFICYP, if it doesn't accept any solution until December 2009, while Turkey is reportedly delaying in an attempt to impose a partitionist "2 States" solution.

    On the contrary, Julin, stressed that "Sweden has strong demands on Turkey'"s respect of "Copenhagen Criteria and EU Acquis".

    Meanwhile, Sweden  is "concerned" about the risk of "Stalemate" in Cyprus' Talks, but is well aware that "the main responsibilities lie with the two leaders and the UNO", Europe playing only a role of "facilitator".

    After carefully verifying, the Head of Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service, stressed to "EuroFora" that Bildt's reference to UNFICYP "was not linked to a Threat", and dismissed those who "interpreted" it so.

    On the contrary, the Swedish EU Presidency acknowledged the fact that Peace Talks are mainly for the UN and the leaders of the Cypriot communities, EU's role being limited into that of a "facilitator".

    As for Turkey's reported attempts to impose a "2 States' solution", the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service sharply replied by stressing that Turkey must respect the "EU Acquis" rules.

    In particular :

    - "Basically he (Bildt) underlined that it's the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus and the UN that have the main responsibilities for solving the problem", started to say the Swedish Senior Official to "EuroFora", referring to the above-mentioned "briefing".

    - "But the EU had a role in sort of pointing out the benefits and facilitating a little bit the outcome for the settlement of the whole Cyprus' issue", she added.

    - "And he did state the Fact, that the rest of the World (i.e. USA, etc) will, of course, look at the differend issues which are at the table, and the future of the UN Peace keeping force is part of what is at the table", she admitted.

    - "I understand that some have interpreted that as a Threat, by the Swedish Minister" "But", in reality, "it's a statement of a Fact, that, when we'll look at the differend issues, one of the issues on which we shall have to take a stand on, is the future of the UN Peace keeping force in Cyprus".

    Indeed, one of the questions usually raised for a Solution of Cyprus' issue is what International and/or European or other Guarantees, by a Peace-keeping force, might be needed afterwards, eventually for a transitory period.

    Questioned anew by "EuroFora" whether (according to critical Press Reports) this could be taken as a veiled warning that, if Cyprus didn't accept any Turkish demand for any solution whatever, it might be left alone to face Ankara's Military Invasion/Occupation, she denied :

    - "He (Bildt) didn't say it in that way"... "It was not linked to a threat, or anything like that", the Head of the Swedish Foreign Ministry's Press Service stressed.

    On the contrary, "he (Bildt) underlined that the main responsibility lies with the parties concerned on the island". "The EU can try to facilitate and show the benefits of reaching a settlement. But also, when the EU and the rest of the World (i.e. USA) will have to look at it, they will look at all the Facts on the table, and the presence of the UN Peace-keeping force is one".

    And "he (Bildt) didn't speak about that at all", she replied to "EuroFora" question on Turkey's reported attemps to impose, in one way of another, a partitionist "2 States solution".

    Asked whether Bildt's aim was to incite both parties to move forward efficiently, she agreed :

    - In fact, "the EU is really very concerned with the Stalemate in the situation. Yes !", the Head of Sweden's Foreign Ministry's Press Service anounced. That's why Bildt "was hoping for the two parties (i.e. for Turkey's also) to engage and break, a little-bit, the present stalemate, come to a solution of the issue" of Cyprus.

    But, replying  to a "EuroFora"s question on the risk, denounced by several politicians in case of strict Time Deadlines, for Turkey to provoke a stalemate and wait for the time to come to impose a partitionist "2 States' solution", she reacted by pointing at Turkey's obligation to respect "EU Acquis" :

    - "Turkey must fullfil the EU Acquis : That's clear !", the Swedish Senior Official stressed.

    More details are expected when Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt will debate his Programme with new MEPs at EU Parliament's plenary mid-July in Strasbourg, that he has visited already in 2008.

    Foreign Minister Carl Bildt became familiar with Strasbourg's CoE last year, when Sweden chaired the PanEuropean organization of Human Rights. As EU chairman-in-office, he will also chair the 27-member States strong EU Group inside the 47-member States strong CoE.

    Minister for EU affairs, Cecilia Malmstrom is well known at EU Parliament, where she has been an active MEP of the Liberal Group for many years, following also Press Freedom issues.

    Both have already made various statements at "EuroFora", on differend topical matters.
