*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- it's Not Excluded that Trump Might be Right, particularly on Mail-in and various Absentees' Votes, a matter Decided by the States, and, at any case, Monitoring on US Presidential Election is "Still an On-Going Process", told "Eurofora" 2 European Top Senior Officers, of the EU and Trans-Atlantic OSCE, respectively, in relation with his 1st Legal Complaint to the US Supreme Court on alleged November 3 Vote's Fraud and Irregularities, lodged just Yesterday, while Just 2 Weeks remain before the Official Reading on States-certified Electors by US Federal Congress on January 6, 2021.

Until Now it's an UnExpected Historic Paradox that USA's Federal Supreme Court has Not yet Examined, Neither Judged on the Merits, Any Legal Complaint on such a "Hot", Serious and Topical Constitutional Law as that of the Still Contested 2020 US Presidential Election, Contrary, f.ex., to what happened Back on 2000, in the Famous "Bush v. Gore" case, Even if the Main Issue raised Nowadays is, in Fact, very Similar to what late Justice Scalia had Named then as concerning the Not-Counting of "Questionable Legality Votes", for the sake of "Democratic Stability" based on People's "Trust", (See, his Opinion, joined also by Other Judges, at : www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/usasupremecourtandvotefraud.html, etc).

President Don Trump has Recently Denounced, in his Latest (and "Most Important of all", as he stressed) Speech on alleged Massive Fraud and Gross Irregularities of this 2020 Election, (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/usa2020electoralfraudproofgrows.html, etc), among others, also the Fact that almost All European Countries Refuse to Accept "Mail-in" and/or other "Absentees'" Ballots, the USA being practicaly Alone to do so Nowadays, (After mainly "Dems"-Governed States, Notoriously Decided to use such kind of Controversial Ballots, Exceptionaly on 2020, Triggering Many Controversies, precisely Because of Fears for Easier "Fraud", and nonobstant about ...400 Cases in Courts, throughout 44 States, which were All Ruled by quite UnTrustworthy Judges ...according to "Partisan" Criteria, as OSCE's Preliminary Report on these 2020 US Elections Denounced).

- EU Commission's Chief Spokesman Eric Mamer, Replying to an "Eurofora"s Question earlier, whether Trump's Claim that the Fraud Risk in US Elections, due to Mail-in, Absentee Votes, etc., would Not exist in Europe, Because Most Europeans Prohibit such Votes, with a Few Exceptions, under Strict Control, is the Truth, or Not, significantly, Did Not Exclude that Trump might be, indeed, Right. He simply Reminded that, in principle, "Elections are Organized by Member States", so that "Questions" about the Existence, or not, of such Fraud Risks, should be "Answered" by the concerned "National Authorities".

= And, Indeed, f.ex. in France, "Eurofora" found that the Legislation does Not Accept Any kind of "Mail-in" or other "Absentees"' Vote, (Even on 2020, f.ex. in Mayors' Elections, Nationwide), But Only the Unique Possibility for a Voter to be, if Necessary, "Represented" to the Polling Station through a "Proxy", i.e. Someone Else : Something Exclusively Reserved for ..."Handicaped" People and/or "ExPats", who Must, Previously, Meet Personaly with a Public Authority's Agents, in order to Officialy and Personaly Declare their relevant Will, with their ID Cards, and by Signing an Official Document "in theur Presence"...

 + In the UK, where some Exceptions existed on "Mail-in" Ballots, a Big Scandal of alleged Fraud in favor of Controversial former PM Tony Bliar's "Labour" Party, Marked the 2005 Parliamentary Elections, with several People Condemned f.ex. in Birmibngham, and CoE's Assembly making afterwards an Investigation and a Hotly Debated in Strasbourg Report, while PM. Bliar was Obliged to Resign a few years After that, (Conservatives taking over the Government Since 2010, until Now).

=> Precisely Because of various Similar and/or Other such Reports of more or less Wide-Spread Fraud and/or Gross Irregularities, Most European Countries had, indeed, to Confirm and Perpetuate, or Introduce an Electoral System withOut Any such Controversial, and Easy to Maipulate or even Buy, "Mail-in" or other "Absentee" Ballots, (which in USA's 2020 Elections' case went as Far as to Add, Also, so-called ...."Drop Box" [sic !] Ballots, even in the Streets, "Parc" Ballots, "Drive Through" Ballots, etc., Often Skip ID Photo and/or Signatures' Verification, etx), as some US Publications Warned, Already Since August 2020...

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

+ A TransAtlantic OSCE (where USA is a Full, Prominent Member) Senior Official, speaking to "Eurofora" Today, under condition of Anonymity, pointed at the work of a PanAmerican OAS' Election Observation Mission, which Monitored too these 2020 US Presidential Elections, as they did also, Recently, f.ex. for Bolivia's 2019 Presidential Elections, where, Notoriously, Morales was Ultimately Obliged to Resign and Flee to Mexico, after Criticism for Suspicions of Fraud, mainly Based on alleged "UnExplained", "Statistical" ImProbabilities and on Late Ballots Suddenly Reversing an Initial Victory of a Candidate, by an AbNormaly Big Number of Votes for that "Socialist/Liberal" Former President, who was, therefore, Discredited as illegitime, Faced Popular Demonstrations and Lack of Military Backing, (etc), before being Replaced Later-on.... Moreover, According to relevant Press Sources, a Parallel EU Foreign Policy Report on those Controversial Presidential Elections has made a Similar Criticism on 2019.

>>> By a striking Coincidence, the main Discrepancies reportedly Reproached by that OAS 2019 Report against Morales, are Astonishingly Similar to a Key part of those made Nowadays Also against Biden on 2020 in the USA : F.ex., Many "UnExplained", "Statistical" Improbabilities, Sudden Reversal of Results, (initialy Won by a Competitor), through Late and Controversial Ballots, DisPrpoportionaly Favoring him, (a Pattern, indeed, Repeated in All or Most of the Crucial 6 "Swing" States), etc. !

++ CoE's PaEuropean Ortganisation's (where USA is Not Member, But has a Special Status) Press Officer Mikaela Catalano told "Eurofora" earlier that, this time, its Parliamentary Assembly (which Usually Follows OSCE's Electoral Observation Missions)  had Not Send any Delegation to Washington DC, But, given the Big "Hot" Controversy about this US Presidential Election 2020, she did Not Excluded a priori that the Assembly Might, Eventualy, Decide, Later-on, to Draft a Report and/or Hold a Public Debate, (as CoE has Already done in the Past, on other Human Rights/Rule of Law/Democracy Issues in the USA), given the Current "Hot" Controversy and International Interest on that Topical Issue.

CoE's, as well as OSCE's, EU's, and OAS' Established Standards on Elections' Monitoring accorss the World, Notoriously include, inter alia, Particularly the overall Press coverage, (which should Not be Excessively Unilateral and Biaised, But basicaly Pluralist and Fair), Transparency, (f.ex. via Multi-Partisan and International Observers, etc), Respect for Rule of Law, proper Votes' Counting, etc.,

while that US 2020 Presidential Election is Notioriously Marked, among others, also by an Obvious, UnPrecedented Level of pro-Biden, Unilateral and often Biaised stance by almost All Establishment's Medias, (as "OSCEé"'s Prelimiary Report, Already Noted, added, Meanwhile, Even by "Turn-Coat" "Fox-News", and even "Breitbart", which Started to Censor massively its own Faithful Readers' Comments, for the 1st Time : All in the process to be, apparently, Replaced by a New Kind of "Citizens' Press", facing, however, GAFA "Big-Tech"'s Censorship in Social Media), Added to Notorious Bullying and Obstruction against Republican, pro-Trump "Observers" in Polling Stations, Violations of US Federal Constitution on "Mail-in", "Absentees", "Late", a.o. Votes or Signatures' Checks, etc., (Comp. Supra),  as well as a Big Row (with Various Gross "Errors" Already Found) on Votes' Counting, (Both in Paper Ballots, and in Controversial "Dominion" Electronic Machines)...

+++ At any case, Meanwhile, OSCE's Electoral Observation Mission Continues to Monitor Nowadays all the notable Relevant Developments in the US about that UnSettled Yet Controversy about alleged WideSpread Fraud and Gross Irregularities in the 2020 Presidential Election, and, particularly, to Watch "How are Handled possible Legal Complaints", as the Heads of that Mission had Already Warned, in a Press Conference at Washington DC, from the immediate Aftermath of the Vote, on November 4, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/usasupremecourtandvotefraud.html, etc), and this was Confirmed, Today, also by the Replies of an OSCE's Senior Official to "Eurofora"s relevant Questions :

- Indeed, "We (OSCE) are Still Analysing" and "Seriously Following" relevant Developments, about the Outcome of these US Presidential Elections,  Because it Remains, Nowadays, "an ON-GOING PROCESS", he/she significantly told us, (speaking on condition of anonymity, due to the delicate character of this Issue).

=> Indeed, OSCE's crucial "Final Report" on these Controversial US 2020 Presidential Elections is "expected to be Published for about Mid-January" 2021, he/she told "Eurofora".

>>> In other words, OSCE's Final Conclusions on this Elections' Results are Expected, by a Significant Coincidence, ...Just After that Decisive US Congress' Official "Reading" about "Official" and "Alternate" slates of Electors from the "Swing" States, currently Challenging each other, (one for Biden, and one for Trump in Each of those "Battleground" States), Notoriously Scheduled for January 6, and which is, precisely, the Target of President Trump Legal Team's 1st Petition to the US Federal Supreme Court, Yesterday, (with a Demand for Urgent Action since Today and particularly Tomorrow, December 23).

+ At least anotOther 1 to 3 such Legal Complaints to the Supreme Court, should, Reportedly, soon Follow, Adding Other among those 6 "Swing" States' very Controversial cases, according to Lawyer Guliani, (while some Other People, in parallel, Dream to become "Proud" Members of an Eventual "Class Action" by "We the People", if possible, as they have Recently Informed "Eurofora"s Readers, on the Entire Range of alleged Wide-Spread Fraud/Gross Irregularities of that Controversial 2020 US Presidential Election).

Thus, it canNot be Excluded a priori that even OSCE's crucial Final Report (Comp. Supra), Might, Perhaps, be Delayed Further, in case of Relevant Unforseen Events, that Senior Official added to "Eurofora", while the usual "Inauguration" Day for whoever might become POTUS has been, Notoriously, Scheduled for January 20, (already surrounded by the "Electric Mist" of Various Other on-going Rumours/Hypothesis, more or less credible: See, f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/usa2020electoralfraudproofgrows.html, etc)...

They voted to "freeze" UK Government's draft to put People in jail for 42 Days on "anti-terrorist" suspicion without charge, or they abstained. Don't they look suspect ?
-------------------------

CoE's debate on UK controversy stirs PanEuropean check of anti-terror suspects' imprisonment

Former Leftists of the Sixties would boil in hot water if they heard PACE's debate on the controversial 42 days detention without charge, currently drafted by the British Government :

A "Socialist" Government, a Socialist PACE Rapporteur and a Socialist Chair of PACE's Legal Committee, opposed a .. "Conservative" amendment (supported by .. Liberals, Democrats, etc), to freeze the measure, in order to protect Citizens' Freedom, by "waiting" until CoE's Venice Committee checks its conformity with Human Rights' principles.

"Left"'s support to Conservative-Lib.Dem's criticism, wasn't enough to obtain a majority, nor to make things as they were back in the good old days, when "Left" and "Right" had a clear meaning, as "liberty" and "restrictions"...

Conservatives and most Democrats were joined by the Left in voting for the "freeze", as well as Liberal Paul Rowen, while Socialist MEP Ivan Popescu, an experienced MEP from Ukraine (PACE Member since 1996-2008) abstained. But most Socialists, added to a few Liberals and EPP's Right, voted against.

Fortunately, someone inside PACE had the wise idea to shorten the Debate for less than 1 Hour, and put it on the Agenda only at the end of an exceptionally busy day, towards the end of the Evening, when most MEPs had already gone to taste wins and foods at various Receptions all around Strasbourg's "European" area : As a result, not even 42 MEPs weren't present..

Socialist Lord Tomlinson accused the leaders of the PanEuropean Assembly, in its highest body : the "Bureau", to "lack wisdom" by deciding to hold a Debate on an issue that neither the Socialist Chair of the Legal Committee, nor its Socialist "reluctant Rapporteur", did "not want to do", ...

Finally, everybody (critics and supporters alike) was happy to agree, in substance, that the controversial measure "may" gravely violate Human Rights, and therefore, PACE asked Legal Experts of Venice Commission to check UK Government''s plans.

But this might take more than .. 42 Days to do, since PACE's Rapporteur asked the Experts to enlarge their study in a PanEuropean comparison of all that is happening on "anti-terrorism" legislation in 47 CoE Member Countries, including Russia, Turkey and Azerbaidjan..

Bad lack : "The existing 28 days’ detention without charge in the UK is, in comparison with other CoE member countries, one of the most extreme : In Turkey, the period is 7,5 days, in France 6 days, in Russia 5 days, and in .. the U.S. and Canada just 2 and 1 days respectively", denounced Democrat MEP Ms WOLDSETH from Norway..

"Numerous respected human rights organisations, including Liberty and Human Rights Watch, have expressed serious concern" "The proposed legislation ...could easily lead to extensive abuses. ...Detention for 42 days means six weeks in which one is taken away from one’s family, friends, home and livelihood only to be let off without being charged. That will destroy lives and isolate communities", she added.

- "3 years ago, the UK Government sought to increase the period of pre-charge detention from 14 days to 90 days. Not long before that, it had been only 7 days. There was a vigorous debate ...and a ...compromise was reached of 28 days. We have to ask whether there are proper safeguards in place to extend the period to 42 days. I suggest that there are fatal flaws", reminded British Conservative Clappison.

- "What sort of society holds someone in detention for 42 days and does not have to tell the person who is in prison why they are there, or explain the suspicions that arose and led to their detention? What sort of society believes that that is the way to treat its citizens? That is an appalling injustice, ...A 42-day detention period will not make the UK safer. Instead, it will be the first step to giving in to terrorists; it is saying that we are prepared to sacrifice our democratic rights and the principles for which we have stood for centuries", criticized British Liberal Michael Hanckock

"Comments made ...by Norwegian delegates are unfortunate", replied British Socialist MEP Ms.Curtis-Thomas, accusing them to "besmirch the reputation of our police force, which is one of the Best in the World", as she said, believing that "there are significant safeguards ...to ensure that individuals are not subjected to unlawful detention"

PACE "has serious doubts whether ...the draft legislation are in conformity with the ...case-law of the European Court of Human Rights. A lack of ..safeguards may lead to arbitrariness, resulting in breaches of ... liberty and ...right to a fair trial". PACE "is particularly concerned that: ..the judge ..may not be in a position to examine whether there exist reasonable grounds for suspecting that the arrested person has committed an offence;"; that "... representation by a lawyer may be inappropriately restricted or delayed;" that "information on the grounds for suspicion of a person ...may be unduly withheld.. ;" that this "may give rise to arrests without the intention to charge;", and; in general, that "prolonged detention without proper information on the grounds for arrest may constitute inhuman treatment", says Klaus De Vries' Report, adopted with 29 votes against zero.

Records don't say if it took him 42 Days to draft his Report, but, at least, he knew why...

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 ?
