*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 official presentation of a "Program" respecting People's choices voted in the June 7, 2009 EU Elections, to be debated in EU Council and EU Parliament during its 1st Session on July in Strasbourg, is the No 1 Priority, according to Democratic principles, for the Franco-German axis, said the main winners at the ballot box, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel.

They stressed  that the New EU Commission's President must have a "Program" in favor of an EU which "protects" its Citizens, regulates financial markets and aims at a "Political" Europe" : a wording they have used as incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

They also declared ready for a "political" endorsment of "Mr. Barroso's candidacy" in June's EU Council, considering that an official decision would have to be made after EU Parliament's debates and votes, possibly from next month (July), with the legally necessary final acceptance shortly after Lisbon Treaty's entry into force, hoped for September or October.


- "A Program, and Mr. Barroso" : This resumes, in substance, the anouncements made by Sarkozy and Merkel, on the question of current EU Commission's President, Barroso's declared wish to succeed to himself for a second mandate, to be extended during the following 5 years.

 In their 1st meeting after EU Elections, they observed that "the Franco-German axis counted in European Elections' campaign... But, we both keep a realistic view : We saw the number of those who abstained, and we must absolutely give them an answer. We also see the disilusionment of an important number of Europeans vis a vis Europe, and we are aware of the responsibilities we have".

 - The "Duty" of the new EU Commission's President, after June 7, 2009 EU Elections' result, "is to act for a Europe which protects the Europeans, to commit himself into working for a better Regulation of Financial transactions, ... and to have a Political will for Europe", underlined Sarkozy.

Therefore, "we have asked M. Barroso... to clarify, to officialy present the intentions he has", he anounced.

- "We want to speak also about the Programme", explained Merkel.

- "It's important that for the next EU Parliament's mandate (2009-2014) we take the right Decisions for Europe.  Obviously on Persons, but mainly Decisions on Issues", she stressed.

- "It's not simply a question of a Person, it's also a question of a Programme". We are "really asking Mr. Barroso to commit himself on a Program, and on Principles, on Values", Sarkozy added.

EU President-in-office, Czech Prime Minister Jan Fischer, accepted the Franco-German stance :

- "Barroso must present his Programme. The Czech Presidency agrees with that", Fischer reportedly said later, after meeting Sarkozy.

But Press reports from Brussels claimed that Barroso had preferred to be officially appointed by EU Council since June, (i.e. next week), "because this was implied by the current Treaty of Nice, according to him", and considered any delay until the possible ratification of the new, Lisbon Treaty on September/October, as "undemocratic".

- "At any case, independently of what Germany and France ask, it's also EU Parliament's wish". "We shall propose Mr Barroso's candidacy... But even in the framework of Nice Treaty, EU Parliament has to be associated in this Decision", the French President observed.

If this is correctly done, then "we support Mr. Barroso's candidature", and "if the (EU) Parliament agrees, we might ratify this decision since July", (i.e. next month), they both said.

- "France and Germany support Baroso's candidacy, But we want to speak also on the Program. We believe that this Program should be established in close cooperation with EU Parliament, and that's why we have followed an appropriate way", said Merkel.  - If EU Parliament wants, this election can take place on July,  but this must be done in full agreement.

- "We shall support Mr. Barroso's candidacy, without doubt", said Sarkozy. "But we have asked from Mr. Barroso, as I told him yesterday, to put into detail.. his intentions, at the eve of his 2nd mandate, if the situation avails itself.


    France and Germany "don't want to take an Official Legal Decision by writting" during "the next (EU) Council" (on June 18-19), declared Sarkozy.  Because they prefer, at this stage, only "a Political decision" on June, "so that we (EU Council) can work together with EU Parliament", which starts to meet only Next Month, since July in Srasbourg, "leaving a Legal decision by writting for later".

    - "If the Conditions are fuillfiled in EU Parliament, we (EU Council) are ready to give the agreement and make it offficial", said Merkel

    - "But, now we are working in the base of Nice Treaty. If tommorow we want to work in the spirit of Lisbon Treaty, we have to find a proper way", she added.

    - "Of course it's Legally complicated, because we are going to make a Political proposal to the forthcoming Council, for an EU Commission's President, on the basis of Nice Treaty : So, we (EU Council) will not appoint the Commissioners. Only the President.  If EU Parliament agrees, it could endorse this position on July", explained Sarkozy.

    But, on Autumn, "if Ireland ratifies Lisbon Treaty, there will be, at any case, a 2nd Decision, to appoint the Commission's President, this time on the basis of Lisbon treaty, and then, we, the EU Member States, would have to appoint (also) the EU Commissioners", he added.

    As for the precise Timing :  - "Everything is suspended until the Irish vote... Now, we must all make everything possible to help Ireland to say "Yes"" to Lisbon Treaty... The Irish Referendum, ..will take place either on September or on October. It's a Question which depends on the Irish. And,  then, we shall have the Choice of the Candidates for the permanent Institutions of Europe".

    However, "if Ireland says No, we, French and Germans, have to assume our responsibilities, and we'll do so", he concluded.

    But British and Swedish governments were reportedly eager to have a final EU Council decision on Barroso since this month, on June's European Council. While the other EU Member Countries are divided, several of them preferring to wait until EU Parliament pronounces itself, on July, and/or until Lisbon Treaty might be ratified by Ireland at the beginning of the Autumn. Barroso's current mandate ends on November.

    There are also various, contradictory and/or unpredictable reactions inside EU Parliament vis a vis Barroso's wish to continue a 2nd mandate, because many MEPs are openly or secretly opposed, reluctant, or hesitating.

    In the biggest EU Countries, as France and Germany, EU Citizens voted on June 2009 EU Elections for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe which cares for its Citizens, with an Identity, Values and Borders, declared incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid, by mainstream, pro-European Governing Parties. Similar choices were also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries.

    On the contrary, whenever, in other Countries, Governing and other mainstream Parties didn't make these choices or eluded them, EU Citizens massively voted for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to to promise anti-bureacratic change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU, (f.ex. in the UK, Netherlands, etc).

    It's seems to be an Open Question whether Sarkozy and Merkel's conditions will be really accepted by Barroso, who was appointed on 2004 in a different political context, (with Socialist Prime Ministers in Germany, France, etc), had rejected in the Past the idea of EU becoming "equal to the USA" as "ridiculous", and pushed for Turkey's contoversial EU bid, trying to "soften" or contain the changes desired by the People who voted for Merkel and Sarkozy with another policy vis a vis Turkey on 2005 in Germany and on 2007 in France, as they did all over Europe on 2009.

    In addition to many EPP Governments, it's 3 remaining Socialist Prime Ministers : Gordon Brown in the UK, Zapatero in Spain, and Socrates in Prortugal, who support Barroso, as well as Liberal Swedish Prime Minister Reinfeldt. But their Parties lost the June 2009 EU Elections.

    Questioned whether there was still "Time" for "other" possible "Candidates", Sarkozy and Merkel did not deny, nor made any comment on that, but simply said that "it's not for us to make publicity for any candidates. We anounced our choice ("A Program, and Mr. Barroso"). But we respect any other candidate".

    Among various other names cited are former Belgian Prime Minister Verhofstadt, former UNO's Human Rights Commissioner Mary Robinson of Ireland, Italian former EU Commission's vice-President Monti, etc. Meanwhile, Luxembourg's PM Juncker, (who had been unanimously accepted by EU Council for EU Commission's Presidency on 2004, but refused), announced his intention to resign from "EuroGroup"'s Chair. Thus, he might be available for another Top EU job.

    As "EuroFora"'s "opinion" said (See publication dated 9/6/09) : - "If the current candidates (i.e. Barroso, etc) to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, then, it's OK".

"Otherwise, Europe must find new candidates, really motivated and able to implement these democratic choices of the People."

    Because, "in Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs,...should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies".
