*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Despite a Spectacular multiplied Metamorphosis of EU Summit's Agenda (See Infra) on the "Hot" Issue of Turkey's Bullying against European Energy Resources at the Eastern Mediterranean, with which EU Heads of State/Government are going to Deal Tomorrow Evening in Brussels, they Should be Able to Discuss that "Thoroughly" and "in Depth", "Because it's a Really Important Issue", told "Eurofora" an EU Council's Senior Officer Today, (speaking under Condition of Anonymity, Because of the Sensitive nature of that Issue), while the "Bumpy" Ramifications of such a Delicate matter have Ping-Ponged Even around the ...Belarus' Issue Recently, and are Now having inevitable Interactions Also at the Latest, manifold Ankara's Military Interference in the Nagorno-Karabakh Bloody Conflict, between Armenia and Azerbaijan, at the Caucasus.

    - "Eurofora" had Asked, about EU's "Extraordinary" Summit of October 1 and 2 in Brussels, whether the UnUsual Fact that it had, Initially, been Announced as Focused on EU's Energy Resources in South-Eastern Mediterranean, around EU Members Cyprus and Greece, Notoriously Bullied by Turkey's illegal "Drillings" at their EEZ, its WarShips, Provocations and Even Threats, But Later was Extended to several Other, Also, Foreign Policy Topical Issues, (from Belarus and the Navalny affar in Russia, up to ...China and, Nowadays, Nagorno-Karabakh at the Caucasus, and, Finaly, saw its 2nd Day being Dedicated entirely into Strengthening EU's "Resilience" at Economy, and Particularly its Common Market, Industry, and Digital Transformation, (Adding Even a Last-Minute Word for the Notoriously Time-Veracious Old Issue of ..."BREXIT", Promissed to be now ..."Brief"  : sic !), while, Moreover, Suddenly Postponing its Initialy Scheduled Dates of September 24-25 until the Beginning of October, under Health Safety pretexts., Before, Even, Announcing that the Turkish Issue would be Debated at a "Working Diner", didn't Risk to Affect EU's Officialy Declared Intention to Really Hold a Serious "in Depth Discussion" on that matter.

 - In Fact, "the Idea was, Originaly, to have an In Depth Debate on the Eastern Mediterranean, Already in the First Half of the Year, on June 2020. But it wasN't possible, because of the COVID" Virus", Replied to "Eurofora" the well-informed EU Council's Senior Officer.

 -  Indeed, "We (EUC) Believed that we Need a <<Physical>> (Not just Virtual, i.e. merely by Remote Video-Conference) Summit for This (kind of) Discussion", he revealed.  

 This Obviously Includes the Possibility to Hold various <<Bilateral>> Meetings, on the Sidelines, as, f.ex., that of EU Council President Michel with Cyprus' President Anastassides, which comes among the First, Already Before the Beginning of the Summit...

At least one of the main Reasons, probably is the Fact that Someone (UnNamed) took the Responsibility, at a Foreign Ministers' meeting, Earlier in Brussels (21/9/2020), to Block, Then, or Postpone any Sanctions on Turkey, Contrary to an Agreement reached Previously at Berlin by EU's FMs, to Advance "in Parallel", on eventual Sanctions versus Belarus and Turkey, withOut "Double Standards". Such an Attempt to Drop EU Agreements, Triggered a Reaction, by Cyprus' MFA, who Reminded that Berlin's Deal, (as Also Supported several EU Member Countries then, including Greece, Denmark, France, Austria, Slovakia, Ireland, Cyprus, Malta, etc), and asked to Transmit Belarus', as Also Turkey's Issues to the forthcoming EU Summit, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/greececyprusoneuturkeybelarus.html).

    -=> So, "we said that we Want to have this at the Agenda of the European Council". In consequence, "this way, we have the ExtraOrdinary Council, (of, at First, September 24-25, and Afterwards, October 1-2), in order to put also the Question of East Med. and Turkey on the Agenda", the EUC Official continued.

    - Now, "I Know that the Situation at the International scene is what it is,.., and, this way, we have ...(also some Other).. Topic(s). We Have to Discuss Belarus, Nagorno-Karabah", etc. (Significantly, he didN't Remind Also Navalny/Russia, China, etc, since they Obviously are, Comparatively, Less "Hot" or "Urgent" Issues...).

    In Addition to the Complications that Turkey's issue provoked even to the Belarusian case (Comp. Supea), it's Largely in the Armenia - Azerbaijan Bloody Conflict that Ankara's Negative Interference Started  to be Revealed in its Worst Version :  1) Nobody Else Incited so Loudly and Shamelessly the Azeris to Attack the Armenians (Not Even ...Pakistan ou Turkmenistan), withOut any remorse, not even steming from the Historic Armenian Genocide...  2) It's the Second Time in a Row this same Year 2020 that Turkey Backed the Azeris to Attack the Armenians, as Ankara had Already done on July, (by a "Coincidence", just a Few Days after the Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan and his Family, Wife and 3 Children; had Suddenly been All Infected by the Virus, since the End of June ! See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/manyconservativeshitbyvirus.html). 3) Turkey notoriously Backs Azerbaijan in these Deadly Clashes, inter alia, with Killer Drones, WarPlanes and Helicopters, Tanks, Rockets, etc, and Other Lethal Weapons, reportedly providing even Military Training on the spot. 4) Nowadays, the Most Worrying Aggravation (Dangerous for All Europe) is that of Extremist Islamist Armed Gangs reportedly Send by Turkey to the Caucasus from Anatolia Plateau, Occypied Syria, and/or Libya, etc., as Paid Mercenaries, to Dop Azeris' Attacks against the Armenians ! Turkey had Already done so, Recently, in Invaded and Occupied Idlib, Afrin, N/E. Kurdish Syrian Regions, inside Civil War-ridden Libya, et.. But it's the 1st Time that Foreign Jihadist Armed Gangs Massively Intrude inside a Geographicaly, Politicaly and Culturally European Land, (and, particularly, at one among the 1st Countries in World History to be Christianized : Home of Armenian People, Also the 1st to face Genocide in the 20th Century, by Turks)... The Story was, Initialy, brokered out by a Investigative Independent Journalist at the Middle East, afterwards Documented and consideraby Enlarged by the London-Based "SOHR" Human Rights NGO, (specialized in Syria), Followed by "the Guardian", "Deuters" Press Agency, and Other Mainstream Medias, Before being reportedly Verified also by the Armenian Government, and Today Denounced by Russian Foreign Minister Serghei Lavrov, (etc)... 5) To that, were recently Added, also, Converging Press, Human Rights' NGOs and other Sources (including "SOHR", etc) about the Shocking Fact that, apparently, Turkey had Even ...Planified, and Earlier PREPARED, Many Days Before the Events of that Bloody "Clash" between Armenians and Azeri, to Send such Syrian or Other Jihadi Mercenaries to the Caucasus : F.ex., Some had Already been Pepared to Go there around 21 or 22 September, But, at the Last Minute, their Transfert was Postponed (NDLR : ...As the EU Summit itself !) for Nowadays...

6) Last, but not least, Photos and Official Denonciations by the Erevan Government Emerged Today, also about an Armenian  "Sukhoi" AirPlane being Hit and Destroyed (with its Pilote Killed) by an "F16" WarPlane of Turkey itself.

--------------------

- "If this is not a really Concrete Answer", continued the EU Council's Official, in his Reply to the Above-mentioned "Eurofora" Question, "...I Know that (EU) Leaders" are interested... And "We'll  See if Leaders Advance Further"... But, at any case, "We (at EU Council's Organisation in Brussels) Want to Give them the Possibility to take the Time to Discuss that (Turkey) Thoroughly", he stressed.

=> - So, that, "I doN't know if this might be going up to the Middle of the Night (Tomorrow, October 1st), But it Might be, Because it's a Really Important Issue !", he agreed, in conclusion.

----------------------

- Earlier, the EUC Senior Official had Confirmed that "EU is Concerned for the Stability of the Region" at the Eastern Mediterranean, and has "Full Solidarity to Cyprus and Greece", vis a vis Turkey's Bullying (Comp. Supra), as EU's General Interest for Unique European Energy Resources there, (at an Area Geologicaly Equivalnt to USA's Enrgy-Rich "Gulf of Mexico"), particularly Since the Northern Sea's deposits have, Notoriously, been Exhausted, goes withOut saying...

=> For that purpose, in Brussels, there is an Intention to "Use All Instruments at the Disposal of the EU", he also confirmed, (using a Formula Similar to that of the "Joint Declaration" at the Latest "MED-7" Summit at Corsica Island, in France, 10/9/2020 : See ..., etc).

+ Among them, a suggestion by EUC President Michel reportedly is, Also, to organize "an international Conference", inter alia, including in order to extend "Multilateral, and Not Only Bilateral, Deals", f.ex. "on Migration, Borders" (i.e. EEZ), etc, he added.

- When Others Asked What might be, Perhaps, "the Carrot" for Turkey, he thoughtfully pointed f.ex. towards an Eventual UpGrading of EU  Turkey's "Customs Union", (i.e. one among Erdogan's recently cited Desiderata : See ..., etc).

- Among the Probable "Sanctions", other wellI-informed Diplomatic Sources, reportedly pointed at Either "More Persons and/or Entities (i.e. Compagnies, etc) from Turkey, to be registered in EU Sanctions' List", and/or some "Economic Measures", particularly "Ready to Use, so that Turkey Knows" what might happen, According to its Behavior, (etc).

---------------------------------------

+ 2nd Metamorphosis ?

-----------------------------------------

- Meanwhile, almost Parallel to EUC's AGENTA's above-mentioned "Metamorphosis", (Comp. Supra), it seems that it's Also anOther one, a kind of "2nd Metamorphosis", (even More "Spectacular" than the 1st, which closely Followed, concerning, this time, ...Turkey's APPARENT BEHAVIOR !

- Indeed, While, Until about 21-22 September 2020 (Included), Turkish Top Officials Multiplied Various Obviously Excessive Demands, Provocations, Insults and Threats, etc., (as, f.ex., Ankara's Defense Minister Akar, who had, Just, Brutaly Ordered Greece to "Shut Up, or Become a <<Mezes>>", (piece of Meat to be Eaten), and President Erdogan, who had just Asked the EU for "proposals which Fit Realities", and  Concessions such as : Free Visa, Upgrade EU-Turkey Customs Union, Migration, Recognition of the illegal Military Invasion/Occupation in Cyprus, DisArmament of Greek Islands, etc, Or, Eitherwise, "Fight !" , (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/turkeygastalksthornyeucredibilityrisk.html, etc),

Suddenly, Only Hours Ago, Erdogan reportedly send a Letter to the EU on the forthcoming Summit, where he Apparently Claimed to stand for "Dialogue", and Even "the International Law" (sic !)...

+ In Parallel, there were Reciproqual mentions about Resuming, Soon, "Exploratory Talks" with Greece.

---------------------------------

=> But, Did Ankara Really Change its Negative Stance, at the Last Minute ?

- In Fact, it doesN't seem so, at all, Many Converging Facts show... F.ex., among (many) others :


- Ankara did Not even Send its Letter to EU Members Greece and Cyprus, Turkish Media Boast.

- Turkey Even Claims that the State of Cyprus would have been ..."Dissolved" (sic) !

- Ankara Seeks to Impose a Recognition of its illegal Millitary Invasion and Occupation of the Northern Territories of Cyprus, (clearly Condemned by the UNO), by Asking for it to be given a full Place inside an "InterGovernemental" Organisation called Mediterranean Forum, (recently Created by Greece, Cyprus and Egypt, together with Israel, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordany and Italy, soon France, etc, to Help Develop South-Eastern Mediterranean Energy Sources, and Transport them to mainland Europe, according to the International Law of the Sea).

- Erdogan even Asks to practicaly Impose a VETO, (sic !),of the illegal Invasion/Occupation, Break Away Regime at the Territories of Cyprus still Controlled by Ankara's Foreign Army, (that the UNO has Condemned, and Nobody Recognizes),  on ...Any Deal with Oil/Gas Compagnies around Cyprus, (by its Legitimate and Internationaly Recognized Central Government) ...

- He Accuses the EU for "Indifference", and to hold "UnJust", "Partial", and "UnConditionaly ... Maximalistic theses", Asking Europe to "Drop" them all.

- But Turkey's Letter does Not Even Mention Once the UNO's competent here "International Treaty on the Law of the Sea", (that Ankara stubornaly Refuses to Sign, Neither Ratify)...

- Instead, Ankara Demands that "the Delimitation" of Sea "Areas" is made in what it ll Vaguely calls "Equitable, Just and Fair way", "in accordance with ... the Protection of Our (Turkey's) Sovereign Rights, and Jurisdiction over Our (Turkey's) Continental Shelf".

- Erdogan explicitly Calls to practically Exploit EU Members Greece and Cyprus' Oil/Gas Resources, (according to the UN Law of the Sea), as a "Basis" for Pushing to "Form a Wider EU" (i.e. Enlarged until Iraq, Syria, Azerbaijan, Iran, etc), with Turkey inside !

(Etc.+...)

----------------------------

+ Moreover, in order to Further Mark their Violent "Beliquoso" Profile and Claims, Ankara's highest State Authorities, have reportedly Just Published a Shelf-Made Video with Gross Nationalist and Militarist Propaganda, DisFiguring History, to Praise a Naval "Battle" by Medieval former long-time ..."Pirate", Hayrettin Pasha Barbarossa, (Died on 1546 : Nothing to do with the Failed NAZI Military Invasion of Russia, which Notoriously Ended at their 1st Big Defeat on 1941, at Stalingrad, Nowadays Volgograd).

That Turkish "Barbarossa", reportedly "Hating" the Spanish and Portuguese Navigators (according to "Britannica" Enyclopedia), Attacked and Asservissed Algeria and Tunisia, throwing them Later Under the Former Turkish-Ottoman Empire's jug, as a "Base of Piracy Against the Italian Coast", while both himself and his successors "Ravaged the Mediterranean Coastal Towns and Villages" too, with "Piracy", particularly After a Battle at "Preveza" (Ancient and Nowadays Greece), which practicaly "Captured" the "Eastern Mediterranean (sic !) for the Turks", Back on 1538, so that the Sultan appointed him "Admiral in Chief of the Ottoman Empire", something that Nowadays' Ankara seeked to ..."Glorify" on 2020, (and at the Same Moment that Erdogan Attempted to Mislead EU's Summit in Brussels, by Hyporciticaly Claiming to speak about ..."Dialogue" and "Law" (sic ! - Comp. Supra)...

Unfortunately for that kind of Turkey, (But Fortunately for Europe), Soon Afterwards, on 1571, a United European Army Brillantly and Definitively Won a Landmark Victory against that Ottoman-Turkish Fleet, in a Grandiose Historic and much Greater Naval Battle at Neighbouring "Lepante" (also Ancient and Nowadays Greece), which Notoriously put an End to "Piracy" and other Turkish Aggressions in the Mediterraean Sea, (being Considered, in Fact, as "the Beginning of Modern European History", according to an Experienced former EU Affairs Minister of Italy : See also ..., etc)...

This 1st move by a United European Force, was Followed, Later-on, Also by a Long Series of Other such Victories on the Declining Former Medieval Ottoman-Turk Empire, F.ex., including 1683 at Wien, 1696 at Budapest, etc., until the New Greek Revolution from 1821, anOther big United PanEuropean (Together with Russia), Naval Victory at Navarino (1828), etc., up to the Collapse of the Former Medieval Ottoman-Turk Empire, and the Arrival of the New Greek Army at just ...40 km Distance from Ankara on 1921...

+Significantly, that Historic 1st United Europe's Naval Victory at Lepante, had been initialy Motivated by an Horrible Massacre of Venician and Greek Prisoners, at ...Cyprus' "Famagusta" Seaport, (Facing Syria, Lebanon and Israel SeaCoasts, nowadays), grossly Betraying the Agreements that they had concluded earlier...

--------------------------------------

+ Nowadays Too, until this Eve of a Crucial EU Summit in Brussels, mainly on Eastern Mediterranean EU Energy Resources and Turkey's illegal Bullying there, (Comp. Supra), as the above-mentioned EU Council's Senior Official (Comp. Supra) observed in fine,

Even if there might be "some Good things", as the Currently Expected Return of Turkey to the "Exloratory Talks" with Greece, that Ankara had Quited Since 2016, After about 10 Years withOut notable Results,

Nevertheless, "there are Also Bad things", such as, f.ex., that Recent New "NAFTEX" of 15 September by Turkey, applicable Until 12 October, (the Unique Point that EU Parliament clearly "Condemned" with a quasi-Unanimous MEPs' Vote, earlier these Days in Brussels (See : ..., etc), which Sends again 2 illegal "Driling" Ships, as usual Escorted by Turkish WarShips, inside EU Member Cyprus' EEZ, (i.e., there Where the Most, already Proven, European Energy Resources are Located, those around Greece Still Having to be Confirmed).

Significantly, 1 of those 2 illegal Turkish "Drilling" Ships is, Provocatively, Named ..."Barbaros" (sic !) by Ankara, referring to the Above-mentioned former Medieval ..."Pirate, Hayrettin Pasha Barbarossa" ! (Comp. Supra).

---------------------------

In other words, as Experienced Cyprus' President Nicos Anastassiades, has reportedly just Stressed, Today, shortly Before Leaving the Island for Tomorrow's EU Summit in Brussels,

>>> in Substance, "Only (EU) Acts, No Words, Could Make Turkey Move !"...

 politkovskaya_gongadze_adali_400

Hu Jia's prize brings SAKHAROV's wife to "EuroFora" on murders of Journalists Politkofskaya, Gongadze and Adali :

- Elena Bonner : "All Journalists' murders must be fully investigated", without Double Standards.                                                                                    

During a special Mega-Event to celebrate 20 Years of SAKHAROV Prize for "Freedom of Thought", attributed in 2008 by EU Parliament to jailed Chinese Cyber-Dissident Hu JIA, the move was reinforced by strongly criticizing the persisting impunity in three cases of Journalists' Murders, such as POLITKOVSKAYA in Russia, GONGADZE in Ukraine, and ADALI in Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus.

Any bureaucratic doubt about whether Cyber-dissidents like Hu JIA might have, or not, a right to be protected as all Journalists must be, particularly when they take risks to search, find and publish original and critical News on issues of general interest to the society, could not resist to the emotion provoked by the message of his Wife, Zeng JINYAN spectacularly transmitted at a big screen in EU Parliament's hemicycle :

- "The most important and most interesting thing he did was to ... say the Truth :.. to write about the phenomena he observed... He never stopped Publishing.. on websites, so that the Public could learn about the reality .. and understand it.  In my view, this has been his greatest contribution", stressed the young wife of the jailed man, eager to cite also the cases of other critical journalists who faced various kinds of "harassment".

 - "Welcoming all those who have suffered for defending Human Rights", EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING, who had invited to Strasbourg all former Sakharov prize-winners from various Countries throughout the World, said that "China needs Europe, and Europe needs China : A great nation" with which "we want to have a good relationship", "association and ..friendship". "But we are never going to stop our fight for Human Rights, and No Government can expect this from us".

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of Peace, if Human Rights are left out. In fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.

    It's in this spirit that MEPs adopted, on Thursday, a Resolution denouncing that "the criminal
investigation and trial following the murder of (a) Journalist ...raises serious concerns with regard to transparency and respect for the rule of law", when a "brutal killing has not yet been fully investigated and solved in a satisfactory way".

    The text refered to dissident Journalist "Anna POLITOVSKAYA", a critic of Tchechen conflict, killed some years ago in Moscow, where Russian Authorities have found, arrested and are currently judging two executants, while also searching to arrest also a 3rd one, allegedly escaped in Belgium. But they have not yet found the instigators.

     Similar texts were adopted recently also on dissident Ukranian Journalist Georgiy GONGADZE's murder, for which Ukranian Authorities have at least found, arrested and condemned 2 executants to 12 and 13 Years of jail, but not yet the instigators. For that purpose, they recently accepted an International Experts team to participate to the investigations.     

But, it's only for the Murder of dissident Turkish Cypriot Journalist ADALI, in the occupied territories of Cyprus, that Turkey has NOT yet found ANYONE responsible, and even claimed recently inside CoE that it would be "impossible" to do so !    

These astonishing differences exist despite the fact that ECHR condemned alike Ukraine and Turkey with 2 Judgements on the same year : 2005, for the murders of  Journalists GONGADZE and ADALI, strong critics of Corruption in Ukraine, and of Ankara's policies on mass-influx of Turkish Settlers in the Occupied Territories of Cyprus, respectively.    

Regarless of that, CoE's Committee of Ministers, who is entrusted with the duty to supervise execution of ECHR's judgements, has just asked Ukraine's Government to reply to further questions on Gongadze's murder before March 2009, while Turkey, curiously, got a longer postponement for answering questions on Adali's murder, until June...   

A comparison of these cases, raises serious questions about Double Standards :

------------------------

On TRANSPARENCY :
--------------------------
    On Gongadze's murder, CoE's body speaks even about the participation of
"an INTERNATIONAL group of Experts" in the Investigation, (f.ex. of "Tape Recordings"), accepted by Ukraine.
    On the contrary, on Adali's murder, CoE is obliged to repeatedly ask (for a 2nd
time) Turkey whether, at least, it informed the victims' Family, or not...
------------------------------
- On EFFICIENCY :
-----------------------
On Gongadze's murder, CoE formally "recalls that the Committee (of Ministers) ..URGED the Ukranian authorities.. to TAKE ALL NECESSARY INVESTIGATIVE STEPS TO ACHIEVE CONCRETE and VISIBLE RESULTS in the INVESTIGATION, aimed at the Identification of the INSTIGATORS and Organisers of the Murder", and "STRONGLY INVITED the Ukranian Authorities to provide information on the PROGRESS IN THE INVESTIGATION", before MARCH 2009.

But, on Adali's murder, on the contrary, CoE's body merely .. "took note" of the "arguments presented by" Cyprus, which denounce the absence of any proof of new "investigation" by Turkey. Following Turkey's own suggestion (!), it simply "noted" that there is "no limitation period" for "any new element" to "lead potentialy (sic !) to a Re-Opening of the Investigation". Without saying who might find any such "new" fact, since Turkey stoped searching... It also POSTPONED the issue until .. JUNE  !
-----------------------
 - On the PUNISHMENT OF THOSE RESPONSIBLE :
----------------------
 -  On Gongadze's murder case, Ukranian Authorities already arrested and condemned, at least 2 suspects, to 12 and 13 Years of jail. And on Politkovskaya's murder at least 2 suspects are judged, and a 3rd one "wanted".

On the contrary, on Adali's murder case, the Turkish authorities simply claim that "it had not been possible to obtain new .. information .. on the basis of which criminal charges could be brought against ANY person" !...

Moreover,  a LETTER sent by Turkey ...2 Years after CoE's 2006 call to re-investigate anew Adali's murder case, is totally EMPTY of Facts ! As Cypus' Delegation denounced earlier, Turkey's Letter ONLY CLAIMS that a "New Investigation" was made without any result, but does NOT even cite ANY FACT to prove it :

F.ex.,on the crucial issue of the "MOTIVATIONS" behind Adali's murder, noted by ECHR, Turkey MERELY CLAIMS that "all allegations  were investigated; without result", but OMITS ANY FACT TO PROVE IT !..(It doesn't even remind which were these "allegations").. .

+ On ECHR's astonishment that the Turkish Occupation regime didn't produce any "BALLISTIC REPORT" on the Shots which murdered Adali, Turkey again repeats, 12 years later, that, still, even until now, "it  was not possible to obtain the BalisticReport"...

- As for the astonishing absence of key-WITNESSES' Testimonies, denounced by ECHR, Turkey agains repeats various pretexts avoiding to reveal anything, (Fex. that a person "left" the Occupied Territories  "on 2002", or that another witness was heard, but without revealing nothing of what he said, etc).

Turkey obviously "FAILS TO MEET THE CRITICISM made BY THE COURT" for lack of any efficient Investigation in Adali's case, concluded Cyprus' Government.
---------------------------------------------
Replying to our Question which COMPARED these 3 outstanding cases of "JOURNALISTS MURDERS", Adali, Gongadze and Politkovskaya, in order to avoid "Double Standards" by asking from Ukraine and Russia more than what is asked EU candidate Turkey, many European personalities were critical /

They criticised Ankara's recent claim at the CoE to stop investigating, because it would be "impossible to find anyone" responsible for the 5 bullet shots which killed Kutlu ADALI in front of his Family Home, contrary to the other two Journalists' murders, where Ukraine and Russia at least arrested the executants, searching now for the instigators :
----------------------------------

imag0103_400

    - "Where was that ? In Turkish Occupied Cyprus ? WITHOUT ANY DOUBT : Any murder of Journalist should be investigated in full ! All these Murders must be investigated !", replied the famous SAKHAROV's wife, Elena BONNER to our question on Adali's case, compared to Gongadze and Politofskaya.

    Elena Bonner spoke us EXCLUSIVELY shortly after being honored by the President
of EU Parliament on the occasion of 20 Years of her husband's SAKHAROV Prize.

    A strong personality, Sakharov's wife even had to struggle against an anonymous EU staffer who, astonishingly, tried to stop her speaking when h heard our question on "Turkey" (!) : - "Please, let me translate, she continues
speaking, don't stop us !", had to cry Sakharov's daughter, (a Journalist
herself), who was translating her mothers' reply, (obliged to speak louder to
make her voice heard despite the harassment).. (= + Audio Proof !)

    Earlier, Elena Bonner also fustigated "Double Standards" at another case, on
Western countries' attitude vis a vis Kosovo and the Kurds : -F.ex. "You have
recognized a few 400.000 Kosovars as an "independent" country, but you still
deny that to 30 millions of Kurds in Turkey !", she denounced.
-----------------------------
    - "This (ADALI's murder) is an issue which should be pursued by the Committee
for Human Rights. That's why we have one, and it's its duty to examine cases of
Journalists' murders as the one you referred to. You should bring the case in
front of that Committee", suggested in reply to our question on Adali, EU
Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING.

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of PEACE, if HUMAN RIGHTS are left out :
in fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.
--------------------------------------
    + "For us (European/International Federation of Journalists) it's clear :
Whenever a Journalist is Murdered, the Investigation should continue until
those Responsible are found !", replied earlier to another question on ADALI
EFJ/IFJ's Secretary General, Aidan WHITE.

    Speaking as a matter of General Principle, White asked us for "concrete data"
on the execution of ECHR's judgement on Adali case, in order to "look at it in
depth" and "make a formal statement", in comparison with the other Murdered
Journalist case, also pending at CoE's  Ministers for completing its execution,
on Ukranian Gongadze.
----------------------------------------------------
     From EU Rapporteur on Human Rights, vice-President of EU Parliament Liberties' Committee, MEP Giusto CATANIA, we were told that, since there is an ECHR judgement in both Adali and Gongadge's cases, "Turkey must naturally execute the judgement and make a full and efficient investigation, until those responsible for the Journalist's murder are found and punished".

    Even if "we (Catania's "EuroLeft" Group) support Turkey's EU perspectives, this does not mean that Ankara should not behave properly. On the contrary, it means that they have to meet tough conditions, particularly on Human Rights", was added on the occasion of Adali's murder case.

    Moreover, "since you raise the issue of Mr. Adali's muder as a part of a Series of Journalist's murders, including fex. Gongadze, Politkovskaya, ao., tthen we (EU) could also act together with CoE's Commissioner on Human Rights, Thomas HAMMARBERG, it was suggested.

    - "We (EU) must step up efforts against the problem of IMPUNITY : Real Peace cannot exist without Justice",  stressed also this week at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, French Minister on Human Rights, Mrs Rama YADE.
