*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/-
Replying to an "Eurofora"s Question, EU Parliament's new President, the experienced former EU Commissioner and f. Minister, Antonio Tajani, from Italy, anounced his Readiness to eventually Cooperate with CoE's PanEuropean Organisation on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, in the Investigation of the recent Brutal Murder of Journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia in Malta, who was Killed by the Explosion of a Bomb in her car, apparently for the Strong Criticism that she used to exert on some Top Political Figures in her Country, as well as several Anti-Corruption Enquiries, that she Published in her Web "Notebook" at the Internet frequently, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/wejournalistmurder.html).


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


"Eurofora" had asked EU Parliament's President, during this November 2017 Plenary Session in Strasbourg, whether he would consider Cooperating with the CoE (which is also located, and even Headquartered in Strasbourg), in order to ensure an Efficient Enquiry on Daphne's Murder, about which, both her Family and various Other Observers, had already raised several Question Marks.


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

 - Tajani considered Possible an eventual Cooperation between EU Parliament and the CoE for that purpose : - "May be", was his First Positive Reaction to "Eurofora"s relevant Question.


- "We shall see", EU Parliament's President added carefully, but promising to seriously consider that point.


- At any case, "We (EU Parliament) are Ready to Cooperate with Everybody" in order to elucidate that brutal murder, President Tajani clearlly offered.


- And he told us that he "knew" that EU Commission's President, Jean-Claude Juncker, had drafted a landmark Report in the Past for the Cooperation between the EU and CoE, (See Infra).


- He was speaking to "Eurofora" about that "International Investigation" that he found "Necessary", as he stressed earlier.


- Because "We (EU) want (at least) to Know the Name of the Killer", he previously pointed out.


+ "This is not against any Government in Malta etc", Tajani explained beforehand, Speaking to Journalists in Strasbourg, including "Eurofora".


=> - "It's simpy because We (EU Parliament) want to Protect Press Freedom, and the work of All Journalists", the President of the 28 Member States-strong Parliament underlined, as a matter of Principle.

>>> Significantly, he Replied to the above-mentioned "Eurofora"s Question on the sidelines of a Press Conference for the Official Inauguration of  EU Parliament's reNovated Press Briefing Room in Strasbourg, Named, Today, after the brutally Murdered Maltese Journalist Brutally Murdered for her Critical Web News Publications at the Internet : "Salle Daphne Caruana-Galizia", (See relevant "Eurofora" Photo).


The Move (made also with the support of "Reporters without Borders" NGO for Press Freedom) follows a Tradition initiated, in the Past, with Brussels' Building for MEPs and EU Parliament's Secretariat, whose Press Briefing Room has been Named "Anna Politkovskaya", (with the support of the "International Federation of Journalists", after the Murdered Russian Journalist who was reportedly covering mainly the Chechen Issue before being Killed. Many Suspects have been reportedly Arrested, since then, and 6 finaly Condemned in Prison, but the initial Instigator allegedly seems to have not been found yet.


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


- The relevant Fact that EU Commission's President, Jean-Claude Juncker, had written, in the Past, an landmark Report on the "Cooperation between the EU and the CoE", after an Official Demand made by CoE's 47 Heads of State/Government, at a PanEuropean Summit in Warsaw, Poland, on 2005, (Comp. "Eurofora" co-Founder's NewsReports from Warsaw, then, published at "TCWeekly"), and presented  a few Years Later in a Press Conference at the CoE in Strasbourg (See "Eurofora"s Newsreport, with Juncker's Replies to our Questions, at : ...), was apparently known to Tajani as he told us, (Comp. Supra).


+ Previously, Concluding an Exceptional Debate among Political Parties' Leaders at EU Parliament on Daphne's brutal Murder, during the 2nd Plenary Session of October 2017, EU Commission's 1st Vice-President, Frans Timmermans, had already evoked a "Cooperation with the Maltese Authorities, and OTHER BODIES that Could be Implicated in the Investigation".


- As for "this (EU) Commission, (it) will leave no stone unturned in that area to make sure that this Atrocious, Barbarous Assassination does Not lead to the conclusion which is clearly wanted by those who perpetrated it : namely that we doN’t Dare ask Questions or we don’t dare Investigate. This will Not happen. This is a Promise I make on behalf of the (EU) Commission", he had concluded.


=> - " The effect of such a public display of Barbarism – which this assassination was – the intended effect, of course, is to Intimidate, to make sure that no investigation is carried out any more, that nothing is pursued, that others will be Self-Censoring their own investigation. I think this is the biggest Challenge we face: that we are Not intimidated by what was done; that we as Europeans collectively accept the responsibility in the EU to make sure that we are not intimidated; that institutions can function independently; that perpetrators are brought to justice; that if this is linked to organised crime or to corruption, that this is pursued", Timmermans had said.


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


Meanwhile, COE's Secretary General, Thornbjorn Jagland, from Norway, and CoE Assembly's President, Stella Kyriakides, from Cyprus, were among those who Published a clear Condamnation of Daphne's brutal Murder, urging for an Investigation to Find and Punish those responsible for that Crime, according to ECHR's case-law.


In addition to the ECHR, CoE has also a PanEuropean Commissioner for Human Rights ;  a special Mechanism for Dealing with various serious Attacks against Journalists, in Cooperation with several Press Freedom NGOs ;  an Assembly composed by MEPs present also in the National Parliament of each Member Country, and exposed to eventual Sanctions in case of various wrongdoings ; a Committee of Ministers responsible for Monitoring the Implementation of ECHR's Judgements by Member States ; Many specific Resolutions, Recommendations, Conventions, Decisions, comprehensive Studies, Legal Experts, and various other Texts specifically on Press Freedom and Protection of Journalists, on which the Organisation has a Long Experience, (etc).

*Paris/ACM/12 October 2008/-

When Europeans really feel a vital need to urgently launch common replies to challenging World Crisis, as the present Financial turmoil of Global Markets, they forge new decision-making tools and new dynamics :

The 1st in History EuroZone Heads of State and Government Summit, organized in Paris at the invitation of French President, and current EU chair, Nicolas Sarkozy, with the participation of 15 national leaders and EU institutions' chairmen, partly enlarged to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, after a highly symbolic duo with German Chancelor Angie Merkel, at General De Gaulle's birth-village, 50 Years after he welcomed there former German chancellor Adenauer (1958-2008), may have not one, but two results :

- The first, and more urgent, was to launch an "ambitious", "coherent", and "efficient" common European movement, able to stimulate "solutions" to the World Economic Crisis, as Sarkozy anounced from the outset : State Garantees (to new Bank debts up to 5 years), fresh Capital input (f.ex. by buying shares), support to distressed banks, (while also restructuring them), incite the European Central Bank to facilitate commerial bills europe-wide, etc.

"Acting swiftly", from tomorrow, national measures will quantify all these targets, with coordinated actions from all EuroZone's Governments : France, Germany, Italy and others, decided to anounce, at the same time, such concrete measures, according to agreements that we have already made all together, revealed Sarkozy at the final Press Conference, flanked by EuroZone's chairmen : EuroGroup's Jean-Claude Juncker, and Central European Bank's Jean-Claude Truchet, as well as EU Commission's Jose Baroso, to solemnly stress the will to find common European solutions.

- "United and Determined, all EuroZone's Countries will act to prove that Citizens can Trust" the Economy, Sarkozy concluded. If we attract also all EU's 27 countries, Wednesday in Brussels, then we can coordinate action with our American Friends at a Global level, he anounced.

- "With this new Toolbox, we do not want to serve Bankers, but to work for Europe and its Citizens' interests", added Juncker.

- "For the moment, we want to act urgently to regulate the Crisis. But the time will come when those responsible for this, will have to account for their actions. Yes to real Capitalism, No to Speculators. Those who abused, will face sanctions, Sarkozy warned.


Need stimulates activities which create new organs, say biologists, and Gordon Brown, compatriot of Spencer, the famous bio-Historian, would certainly not deny that, after his surprise visit to EuroZone's Summit in Paris, which attracted him one hour more than scheduled...

Decisions include also the creation of a Crisis-management European mechanism, which "requires constant Monitoring", as well as strengthening Economic policy cooperation between EuroZone's countries.

Sarkozy will be judged by History not just by the immediate Economic results, expected at the end of this week's decision-making proces at National and EU level, but also by the more far-reaching consequences at the aftermath of this Historic EuroZone 1st Summit : Will it succeed to become a precursor forging a New era in European institution's revitalization ?

Significantly, the French President sat, during discussions, between German Chancelor Merkel, and British Prime Minister Brown, facing the chairmen of EuroGroup, Juncker, ECB : Truchet, and EU Commission, Baroso, with Prime Ministers of Spain, Zapatero (a hot partisan of EuroZone's Summit) at his right side, and Italy's Berlusconi, at his left, surrounded by Austrian, Belgian, Cyprus', Finland's, Greece's, and Ireland's leaders, as well as Slovakia's, Slovenia's, Portugal's, Netherlands', Malta's and Luxembourg's leaders.

Meanwhile, those who tabled for a rift between French and German positions were faced with a smiling Merkel at De Gaulle-Adenauer's meeting place, a sunny Saturday morning, and a particularly active-looking Merkel inside the French Presidential Palace at Elysee's gardens on Sunday, (as happy few photographers discovered)..

- "De Gaulle's hilltop, at Colombey-les-2-Eglises, gave an astonishing overview to a huge landscape, entirely surrounded by splendid Nature, as far as eyes could see", said to EuroFora an obviously charmed German Journalist.

She was describing Saturday's inauguration of a High-Tech Memorial close to the Historic Giant Double Lorraine's Cross, built by famous Novelist Andre Malraux, to perpetuate the Memory of his famous call for "Resistance" to NAZI, and his vision for the creation of New Institutions and Franco-German reconciliation, to foster Europe's role in the World, also for the Future.
