*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).

    Strategically located between Paris and Prague, Strasbourg offered a natural location for the French and Czech EU 2008 and 2009 Presidencies to tune their agendas for a resolute European move towards Renewable Energies, during an exceptional Joint Parliamentary meeting on "Energy and Sustainable Development", co-organized here by the Presidents of EU Parliament, Hans Gert Poettering, French National Assembly, Bernard Accoyer, and Senate, Gerard Larcher, on November 20 and 21.

    Concluded by a busy-looking French super-Minister of Energy, Environment and Regional planning, Jean-Louis Borloo, the exceptional gathering of Top MPs from all 27 EU States' Parliaments hoped that a Ministerial meeting prepared by Borloo, will pave the way to an overall agreement at the level of EU Heads of State and Government Summit chaired on December 2008 by French President Nicolas Sarkozy, allowing the next EU chair, the Czech Republic, to start working from the beginning of 2009 on concrete measures.   

Speaking to "EuroFora" President Accoyer resumed the general feeling by stressing that "Europe has no Oil-Gas resources, but an important Scientific-Technologic potential. Therefore, we must develop Renewable Energy sources". "Since the Sun is the most abundant and free RES,  we must do the outmost to boost Solar Energy" solutions, he added, at the eve of a special meeting on Solar energy and the Mediterranean organised by Borloo on Saturday.     

Oil-gas supplies' security and diversification were also examined by the EU gathering, after which, President Accoyer replied  to our question on risks of long, expensive and fragile pipe-lines' projects, crossing through foreign countries out of the EU, compared to new possibilities for Sea and River Ship direct EU transport even of Gas, thanks to New Liquification technologies : - "We have just écreated the Union for the Mediterranean for concrete projects like these", Accoyer stressed, speaking of Sea-River Ship Highways, fundeable under EU's TENS programs.     

 Rapporteur on "Energy innovation and sustainable development", Dr. Bedrich Moldan, vice-President of Czech Senate's Environment and Regional Development Committee, added that Climat issues, price uncertainties and diminution of accessible Fossil energies, played together with EU's RST potential in order to make RES both a need and "an opportunity". However, in cases as "Solar Energy, even if the main Scientific ideas are already here, we have to make some technologic breakthroughs in order to find how to produce it on a large scale, store and transport it", Dr. Moldan added to "EuroFora".     

Czech interest for RES was also expressed, earlier in Strasbourg, by Jan Kohout, the deputy Minister pf Foreign Affairs who participated to a workshop on "Renewable Energies" organized by the French EU 2008 Presidency : - "The focus is on Development", he told us.    

On this and other RES issues, Dr. Moldan anounced the Czech EU 2009 chair's intention to organize an important 2-days Conference on Renewable Energies and Sustainable Development late January 2009 at nearby Prague.
