*Strasbourg/EU-Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- A Key EU Personality : the EU Ombudswoman (alias : EU Defensor of Citizens' Rights), Emily O'Reilly, from Ireland, Replying to an "Eurofora" Question about Our Project for mainly Web-Based EU Citizens' Public Debates with EU Decision-Makers (as, f.ex. MEPs, etc) Before Taking Measures which Affect their Lives and/or Society at large, observed that it's, indeed, "a Huge Issue", but also "a Matter of Political Will", for which, Nowadays, the Doors "May be Open !", (See Infra).

(Exceptionaly Long Queu waiting to Enter EU Parliament's Building in Strasbourg for 2018 EYE Event, after a RainStorm Hindered to use an initially prepared Campus)

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

    O'Reilly was speaking in Strasbourg, between the conclusion of EU Parliament's May Plenary Session and the Beginning of "EYE" Annual Event, with the participation of Thousands of Young People from all over Europe, President Tajani and other MEPs, EU Experts, etc., in EU Parliament's Building here for 2 Days, Friday and Saturday, 1+2 June 2018, which is the last Big Event before the Electoral Campaign for the forthcoming May 2019 European Elections : I.e. amidst such an ambiant noise (given the Popular Success of this Event, as a relevant Photo clearly shows, that she had to Carefully concentrate her Attention in order to clearly hear what "Eurofora" had to say)...

  - In "Eurofora"s Question to EU Ombudswoman, we observed that O'Reilly has "Recently spoken very much about the Transparency of the (EU) Decision-Making process, and, also, about the Participation of Citizens and Civil Society", (already since Early February 2018: See "Eurofora"s NewsReport at ...). But, as you know, onOther Aspect of Lisbon Treaty's Article 11, speaks about a Possibility for "Regular Dialogue", as well as about the "Expression" of EU Citizens' Views, and "Exchanges" on the "Acts" of the EU Authorities, including, f.ex., EU Parliament, and others.


=> - "Do you think that it would be Good, on this (Legal) Basisn to Initiate, (in the "Softest" and Easier posssible way for all), Public Debates between EU Citizens, Civil Society, etc., and, f.ex., EU Parliament's key MEPs, Before Decisions are taken, which may Affect their Lives, and/or All the Society ?", we queried.


 "In this way, f.ex. EU Parliament could have a View of EU Citizens' opinions on the Issues on which it might Debate and/or Vote. It could also give an Opportunity to EU Decision-Makers to Explain the Reasons for which they might take one or another Decision", "Eurofora" observed.


 - "F.ex., a Week Before the Plenary, EU Citizens might have a Chance, thanks also to Digital Technologies, to Express their Views and hold a Debate, eventually we practicaly observed.


- New French President Emanuel Macron has just Told Us that he would be in Favour of such a Development, extending even After the forthcoming EU Parliament's Elections of May 2019, as well as some Others. But You (as EU's Ombudswoman/Defensor of EU Citizens) are at a Key EU Position for that.


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

- "Yeah", O'Reilly spontaneously reacted, particularly on the "Regular Dialogue" point of the above mentioned Lisbon Treaty's Article 11...


 - "I take the Overall Point, about People to be Able to Engage (in Dialogue with EU Decision-Makers), Before Decisions are made", the EU Ombudswoman told "Eurofora" at the Beginning of her Reply.


 - "That's a Huge Issue !", Emily O'Reilly observed from the outset, with a Serious look.


- "Obviously, there are All Sorts of Ways in which this could be Attempted to be done, f.ex., via Public Debates, Consultations, etc., she pointed out.


- Recently, "what I've been Trying to do is to make EU Council more accountable for Transparency, because People doN't yet known what Positions the EU Member States are Taking", she reminded, (Comp. : ..., etc).


 - On what you ("Eurofora") said, "sometimes, the Responsibility is, of course, also on Brussels (i.e., f.ex., EU Commission, etc) to Engage" (in Dialogue with EU Citizens on forthcoming Decisions), she Acknowledged.


-  "But it's also on (EU) Member States (i.e. EU Council, etc), as well, in relation to Their Citizens, their Parliaments, etc", she observed, in Reply to "Eurofora"s Question, i.e Interestingly pointing at a Wider Dimension of this matter, including also the National Public Administrations' relations with Citizens, (a Topical aspect on which "Eurofora"' co-Founder has been notoriously working in the framework of an original Legal Research at a "Doctorat d'Etat" level in the French University, since a Long Time ago, but also Nowadays).


 - "They (People) very Often Don't even Know what really Europe has done, (by Radio, TV, Newspapers, etc), while they know about EveryDay Life Politics", and so on, she observed, (also as a former Experienced, Long-Time Journalist).


 - Usually, "It Seems that it's Very Hard" for EU News to reach out to the People. "But, actually, one of the Good points about it, (i.e. Dialogue between EU Authorities and Citizens : Comp. Supra), is that", even without being "Dramatic", "I think that (EU) "Citizens are going to Consider this, (i.e.) to Learn something (in Reply) from the Politicians who are Making important (EU) Decisions here", O'Reilly observed Positively. speaking about EU Parliament's Building.


- Otherwise, in the Past, Statistics indicate that, in some Countries, only a Small Percentage of Young People Voted in EU Elections. And, in general, Often these People "do Not Relaize the Power that EU Organisations have got in recent years, Not even the Power that they have themselves, as Voters, to collectively choose this or that Political Majority, of the Right, the Left, or Center, etc, by Voting in EU Elections.


Obviously, as a matter of normal Democratic way of functioning, EU Citizens' Votes could, afterwards, logically Reward or Sanction, this or that Political Group, according to the Outcome of a previous Dialogue with them on EU Decisions affecting their Life and/or Society at large, as "Eurofora" suggested (Comp. Supra).


- But, the concrete Developpement, or not, of such Exchanges between EU Decision-Makers and EU Citizens, according also to Liisbon Treaty's Article 11, as "Eurofora" had hinted (Comp. Supra), in fact, it's a Matter of Political Will !", O'Reilly stressed in Reply.


+ However, Questioned, subsequently, by "Eurofora", if she Felt that, "Nowadays, the Door is Open, or Closed", in this regard, the EU Ombudswoman, after a Thoughtful moment, chose to Enigmatically, but quite Optimistically, Reply, with a Smile : - "I think that it May be Open !"...

Υπόθεση ΟΡΑΜΣ : Ο Πρόεδρος ΕΔΑΔ απορρίπτει ισχυρισμό Εκθεσης Κομισιόν ΕΕ για Κατοχική "Επιτροπή" περιουσιών προσφύγων

    (Οι περισότερες δηλώσεις Προέδρου ΕΔΑΔ ακολουθούν κατόπιν σ άλλο άρθρο)
-------------------------------------------------------------
* Στρασβούργο/ΑΚΜ/ 16 Οκτωβρίου 2008/-
---------------------------------------------------------------
    Εντελώς ανακριβή κρίνει η ηγεσία ΕΔΑΔ τον επικίνδυνο ισχυρισμό Νομικής Εκθεσης από Κομισιόν ΕΕ που παρουσιάστηκε στο ΔΕΚ στο Λουξεμβούργο στη γνωστή υπόθεση εκμετάλλευσης γής ΕΚων προσφύγων ΅ΟΡΑΜΣ" σύμφωνα με τον "Πολίτη", ότι το ΠανΕυρωπακιό Δικαστήριο του Στρασβούργου θα είχε, δήθεν, ήδη κρίνει κατ αρχήν αποδεκτή την αμφιλεγόμενη "Επιτροπή Αποζημιώσεων" που έστησε η Τουρκία στα κατεχόμενα

    - "ΟΧΙ, ΟΧΙ, Δεν ελήφθη ακόμα απόφαση γι αυτό", και "δεν μπορούμε να πούμε από τώρα ποιά θα είναι η κατάληξη σ αυτό το θέμα, που μένει ανοικτό. Θ αποφασίσουμε σε λίγο καιρό", μας απάντησε ο Πρόεδρος ΕυρωΔικαστηρίου Ανθρωπίνων Δικαιωμάτων, Ζαν-Πώλ ΚΟΣΤΑ, σε σχετική ερώτησή μας για το αν αληθεύει ο πιο πάνω ισχυρισμός πως το ΕΔΑΔ θα είχε ήδη κρίνει σαν κατ αρχήν "αποτελεσματικό μέσο" προστασίας την αμφιλεγόμενη "Επιτροπή" των Κατεχομένων.

    - "Αυτά είναι απλές φαντασιώσεις. Μάλλον κάποιος παρεξήγησε την απόφαση Ξενίδης Αρέστη, Στην πραγματικότητα τίποτα δεν έχει αποφασιστεί ακόμα, Εμείς (το ΕΔΑΔ) ετοιμαζόμαστε να εξετάσουμε τις πρώτες 8 υποθέσεις "τεστ" για την εν λογω "Επιτροπή" (Κατεχομένων), όπου εγείραμε κάποιες ερωτήσεις, στις οποίες μόλις λάβαμε Απαντήσεις που αναλύουμε, για να δούμε άν θα μπορούσε να κριθεί σαν αποτελεσματικό ένδικο μέσο, ή όχι, Αν βρούμε σοβαρές ελλείψεις, τότε θ αγνοηθεί εκτός άν μπορέσουν να κάνουν όλες τις απαραίτητες αλλαγές", μας πρόσθεσε, επίσης, κι ο έμπειρος Διευθυντής της Ολομέλειας ΕΔΑΔ, Βινσάν ΜΠΕΡΖΕ, (που ήταν τ. υπεύθυνος του Τμήματος για ΕΚους πρόσφυγες, ότταν εξέδωσε τις αποφάσεις Ξενίδη Αρέστη, Δημάδη, κα).

    Τόσον ο Πρόεδρος του ΕΔΑΔ όσο κι ο Διευθυντής της Ολομέλειάς του μας μίλησαν την ημέρα εξαιρετής, σημαντικής συνάντησής τους στο Στρασβούργο με τον αντιΠρόεδρο Επιτροπής ΕΕ, αρμόδιο και για θέματα Ανθρωπίνων Δικαιωμάτων, Ζακ ΜΠΑΡΩ.

    Ο ίδιος ο Μπαρώ μας είπε δε ότι "δεν γνώρίζε" για την αμφιλεγόμενη Εκθεση Κομισιόν στην υπόθεση ΟΡΑΜΣ στο Δικαστήριο Ευρωπαικών Κοινοτήτων (ΔΕΚ) στο Λουξεμβούργο, υποδεικνύοντας ότι μάλλον ήταν υπάλληλοι απ τον Φιλανδό Επίτροπο Ρέν, αρμόδιο για Διεύρυνση που ίσως παρέμβησαν σχετικά (βλ, προηγούμενη Είδηση).
'
    Σημειωτέον ότι πρόσφατα ο Ταλάτ στο Στρασβούργο απέκλεισε ΠΛΗΡΗ αποκατάσταση της περιουσίας ΕΚ προσφύγων με την εν λόγω "Επιτροπή" των Κατεχομένων, μιλώντας μόνο για "ΜΕΡΙΚΗ αποκατάσταση, αλλαγή ή αποζημίωση", ενώ, αντίθετα, η Επιτροπή Υπουργών ΣτΕ μόλις έχει ζητήσει απ την Τουρκία να εξηγήσει γιατί αρνείται την πλήρη επιστροφή της περιουσίας της Τίνας Λοιζίδου..

    Εξάλλου, απαντώντας έμμεσα σε πρόσφατες προκλητικές δηλώσεις ΤΑΛΑΤ στο Στρασβούργο που παρομοίασε τους ΕΚους πρόσφυγες μ ανυπόμονους που "δεν είναι ικανοί να περιμένουν τη λύση του Κυπριακού", που αργεί 35 χρόνια απ την Τουρκική Εισβολη 1974, το ΕΔΑΔ έκρινε, σ άλλη υπόθεση που αφορούσε εταιρία εγγεγραμμένη στην Κύπρο, ότι, από θέμα Γενικών Αρχών ΑΔ, είναι "υπέρμετρη" και δυσανάλογη η επιβολή σε ιδιώτη της υποχρέωσης να στερηθεί της χρήσης περιουσίας του για πάνω από 12 χρόνια περιμένοντας την λύση ενός πολύπλοκου προβλήματος, ακόμα κι αν υπήρχε δημόσιο συμφέρον γι αυτό.

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 ?
