*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).

Recent developments proved that Europe can suceed to overcome challenges by aiming at great objectives, and this is needed also in 2009, said EU chairman, French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

    - "It's in the name of Great Ideas, Projects, Ambition and Ideals, that EU can overcome" challenges, stressed Sarkozy at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, in conclusion of a dense 7 months EU Chairmanship. "It's even easier for Europe to have Great projects, able to overcome national egoism, instead of limiting itself only to small projects" (unable to do alike), he observed.     

- "Europe must remain Ambitious and understand that the World needs her to take Decisions". "The World needs a Strong Europe", which "thinks on its own, has convictions, its own responses, its imagination" : "A Europe which does not limit itself into following" others, (as it did in the Past, when it followed USA, f.ex. on Bosnia). On the contrary, "Europe should undertake its own responsibilities", he said, after a series of succes in stopping the War between Russia and Georgia, and organizing the 1st EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which incited the Washington DC G-20 Summit to extend similar decisions World-wide.  


    - "When you sweep it all under the carpet, prepare yourself for hard tomorrows", he warned. "What hinders decisions is the lack of Courage and Will, the fading away of Ideals", he stressed before EU Parliament's 2008 debate on Human Rights and Sakharov prize on Freedom of thought attributed by MEPs to Chinese cyber-dissident Hu Jia, followed by an EU - Turkey meeting on Friday.

    - "I don't abandon my convictions" and "I will take initiatives" on EU level also in 2009, Sarkozy announced later. "France will not stop having convictions and taking initiatives" on Europe. + "It's an Error to wish to pass over the Heads of those who are elected in their Countries" : "It's an integrism I always fought against"', he warned.
---------------------
French EU Presidency faced 4 unexpected Crisis :

- An institutional crisis, with the Irish "No" to EU Lisbon Treaty, just before it started. A geopolitical crisis, wth the threat of War between Russia and Georgia risking to throw Europe back to Cold-war divisions, on August. A World-wide Financial and Economic crisis, arriving at a bad moment before crucial 2009 EU elections. And even a Strasbourg's mini-crisis, with EU Parliament's roof curiously falling down, from unknown reasons, in a brand new building on August, provoking an unprecedented transfert of the 2 September Plenary Sessions...

But it wasn't enough to stop Sarkozy ! On the contrary, it stimulated him...
---------------------------------------

- "The better way to deal with the recent problems of EU institutions (as the "3 NO" by France, the Netherlands and Ireland) is to take them as a "Test" in order to find solutions closer to Citizens' concerns", said later in Strasbourg Sarkozy's new choice as Ministe for EU affairs, Bruno Le Maire.

- On the Institutional front, Sarkozy gave Time to the Irish to think about it, and stroke on December a deal including a New Referendum after the June 2009 EU Elections, in exchange of a promise to keep the rule of "one EU Commissioner for each EU Member Country", and some opt-outs on Defence and Fiscal EU policies, Abortion, etc. If the Irish get a "Yes" Majority, then the institutional package could be completed in 2010 or 2011 on the occasion of Croatia's probable EU accession.

He was accused in Strasbourg to upgrade EU Council and downgrade EU Commision, but he replied that "strong Political initiatives by EU Council reinforce also the more technical role of EU Commission, under the political-technical leadership of its President", all 3 "working together with EU Parliament".


- But, meanwhile, Sarkozy energetically spearheaded an Historic 1st Summit of EuroZone's 15 Heads of State and Government at EU's core, exceptionally enlarged to a partial participation of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on October 12 in Paris' Elysee palace, which started to tackle succesfully the growing world Financial crisis.

    It also paved the way for its endorsement by a subsequent Brussels' 27 EU Member States' gathering, before it all come to Washington's G-20 Summit. And "Europe was united, it asked for the 1st G-20 Summit, and it will also organise the next G-20 Summit on April in London", he observed.   

 But a Conference with EU, Russia, African and other Developing Countries, hosted in Strasbourg shortly after Washington G-20 Summit by the French EU Presidency, took a Resolution asking to enlarge participation to Global Economic Governance. Many found, indeed, illogic and unacceptable that f.ex. states as Turkey were given a seat at G-20 level, while all African Countries, and even the African Union itself, representing the greatest Continent on Earth, were excluded...


    Meanwhile, even USA''s "Paulson No 3" Plan, was, in fact, inspired by Europe's No 1 Plan", Sarkozy observed, largelly applauded by MEPs.

    And "Europe showed Solidarity" by mobilizing some 22 Billion credit for Hungary, 1,7 billion for Ukraine, as we do nowadays for Baltic States, etc., he added.

    The move on Economy was extended on December by an EU stimulus' plan totalling some 200 billion Euros, including 5 Billions released by EU Commission for big Projects, as well as various parallel National plans for Economic revival, (fex. 26 billions in France alone). They might appear limited, compared to USA President-elect Obama's reported plan to boost the American economy with 800 billion $, but at least succeded to overcome Europe's divisions for the first time on Economic governance, opening new horizons.

- The French President stressed even harder the unique role of an active EU Council's chairmanship, when he moved swiftly and efficiently, at the beginning of August, to succesfully stop War between Russia and Georgia, at the last minute, which threatened to bring Europe back to Cold War division.

"We (EU) also wanted to avoid a situation like in Bosnia, in the Past, when EU was absent, so that our American friends took their responsibilitues, and EU only followed", despite the fact that the conflict took place in Europe. Now, it was the EU who took its responsibilities".

A roadmap towards a new PanEuropean Security policy, before which all unilateral moves to place new Missiles (from USA or Russia) would be freezed, was proposed by Sarkozy after a meeting with Russian president Medvedev, at the eve of Washington DC's G-20 Summit.

Ukraine's "European" character was stressed at a Sarkozy - Jushenko Summit, September in Paris, while EU adopted on December an "Eastern policy", in which, "I'm convinced that our (EU's) future is to find with our Neighbours the conditions for Economic Development. Peace and Security, by explaining them that.. they must respect (Human Rights') Values, and adopt behaviors different from the Past", explained Sarkozy in Strasbourg.

Meanwhile, the "Union for the Mediterranean" was created, since July's Summit if 45 Heads of State and Government in Paris, as "an organisation for a permanent Dialogue, that we need", mainly in order to tackle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, by bringing together, for the 1st time, Israelis and Arabs, where "Europe must be present, in order to avoid a frontal clash".

- "If Europe doesn't take its part for Peace in the Middle-East, nobody else will do that in our place", Sarkozy stressed.
-----------------------
    Meanwhile, other EU Agreements were brokered during the French EU Presidency on Immigration, (fex. common Asylum rules, etc), and Climat- Energy :

    - On Climat-Energy, the 2007 German EU Presidency had fixed a triple 20% aim for 2020 (20% renewable Energies, 20% reduction of CO2 emmission, 20% energy efficience/economies), and the 2008 French EU Presidecny realized that, making the necessary compromises in order to modernize EU's industry, but without throwing some former Central-Eastern European Countries into abrupt Economic break down risking "social explosion".

    - Defence-Security EU policy was mainly postponed for April 2009, since both German chancellor Merkel and French president Sarkozy want to strike a deal with the new American president Obama in Strasbourg's NATO Summit.

    However, with all these 4 unexpected Crisis diverting attention to other urgencies, People wil wonder now, what happened to the famous deal proposed by freshly-elected French President Sarkozy on Turkey's controversial EU bid, back on August 2007, to continue EU - Turkey negotiations, but on the double condition that core chapters, intrinsequally linked with EU Membership, will be excluded, and that a collective Reflexion and Debate on Europe's future would start before the end of 2008.

    It was meant to reply to the crucial question : What kind of Europe do we want in 10 or 20 Years from now : A large Market, or a Political Europe, with a popular identity ? In Sarkozy's thinking, presented in his 2 landmark speeches on Europe in Strasbourg, shortly before and after the 2007 Elections, (on February and July 2007), Turkey's controversial EU bid would be incompatible with the second choice.

    It's true that EU Commision's Chairman, Jose Barroso, (who had notoriously declared, as former Portuguese Prime Minister, that he found "nonsense" the idea that Europe might become equal to the US), had repeatedly tried to avoid that Sarkozy's criticism on Turkey might start winning a larger audience in Europe, preferring a discrete "wismens' committee" work. And that most of the personalities later chosen in order to participate in a Committee on Europe's Future, are too much linked with Socialist parties and/or American policies, to be really critical of USA's notorious wish to impose Turkey to the EU, as Sarkozy had noted himself since March 2007..

     - "It's on EU Council's presidency to take political initiatives. EU Commission has other competences", stressed Sarkozy. The "European Ideal" is to "build Europe with the States, not against them". "Ask Europeans to chose between their countries and Europe won't work. You don't choose between your two parents : We must add them together".

    "France and Germany have an Historic Duty to work together, precisely because of what happened to the Past. We have to work hand by hand. We cannot be separated.It goes beyond me and Mrs Merkel today, Mr Schroeder and Mr. Chirac yesterday. It's not a choice, it's a duty to Europe and to the World".  "We need Germany, as Germany needs Europe". Compromise is inevitable, here as everywhere, and each one made some steps towards eachother's positions.

    But "it's true that Mrs Merkel didn't chose her Socialist partners, while I chose mine", Sarkozy said, in an indirect hint that the Socialist Minister of Finance in Germany might be a cause of minor past disagreements in Economy, which were overcome in recent negotiations.

    "We (France and Germany) have particular duties in Europe", but "in a Europe of 27 Member States, it's not enough for France and Germany to agree between them.

    "I always thought that Great Britain has a special role to play in Europe. ... Now, everybody "saw what it cost payed the UK for having been too exclusively open towards the US (and) Financial services. Europe needs the UK, but also the UK needs Europe" :- "We were able to face the hardest moment of the Financial crisis because the UK clearly chose Europe", stressed Sarkozy, reminding Gordon Brown's exceptional participation to the Historic 1st Heads of State/Government Summit of EuroZone, October 12 in Paris (See EuroFora's Reportage from Elysee Palace then).

     - "Some look at Europe with old glasses aged 30 years ago. While we must look at her in relation to what it will be in 30 years" in the Future, Sarkozy concluded.

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 ?
