*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- An apparently UnPrecedented Super-Majority (or, rather, Quasi-Unanimity) of MEPs Voted Today, in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, a Resolution in order to express "Deep Concern" for the Long and Bumpy "Investigations" in the Brutal Murder of Critical and Independent Web-Journalist Daphne Caruana-Galizia in Malta, while Also "Stressing" that a "Risk of Compromizing the Investigations ...persists as long as the Prime Minister remains in Office", speaking of the controversial Socialist Joseph Muscat, who Notoriously Refuses to Resign Before the Mid-January 2020, and keeps a lot of his Cronies appointed at Key Jobs around that Enquiry, even after several among his entourage were found more or less compromised, (See, f.ex., Facts cited at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/daphnemurderenquirydeviationrisk.html, etc).

This Resolution succeeded to get 581 MEPs' Votes in Favour, with Only 26 Against, and 83 Abstentions, i.e. an Historic Record-High.

But, in Fact, its above-mentioned Substance attracted Even More Wide Support, since the Reason for which Some Rightist MEPs Voted Against (mainly of the "ID" Group or "BREXIT"), or Abstained, (mainly among the "Conservatives", is Not because they would be Opposed to the Above-mentioned Key Remarks (Comp. Supra), But, on the Contrary, Because they Found them ...Insufficient, (i.e., Preferring, f.ex., a Clear and Straight Call for that Maltese Prime Minister to Resign Immediately : as, f.ex., the Head of French mainstream Center-Right "Republican" MEPs, Philosopher Francois-Xavier Bellamy = EPP, etc), and/or rather for a Different Reason : Because, as a matter of General Principle, they were Not Favorable in giving to the EU a Power to Intervene Strongly inside its Member States, particularly Fearing that it might, eventually, be Exploited, by some, as a kind of "Precedent" in order to Exert, Afterwards, even More Pressure Against "Dissident" Countries, for Various Other real Reasons, such as Hungary and/or Poland, etc., (f.ex. via the TEU Article 7 current Procedure, and/or anOther, New such Procedure, even Stronger)...

At the Same Time, it's also True that in Vain would anyone search to find, perhaps, some Socialist MEPs who could have Voted Against that Resolution : Only 3 (mostly Maltese), added to Only 1 who Abstained... So that, inter alia, f.ex., Italian Rightist MEP Marco Deostro, speaking on behalf of the "ID" Group, found ..."Molta Ipocrisia" ("A Lot of Hypocrisy"), at least in some Voters, as he Claimed.

Is it, perhaps, Because most Socialist MEPs (who were Alone Not to Mention even the Daphne Murder Affair at the 1st Page of their Press Agenda for this Plenary Session, Contrary to the EPP Center-Right, who had placed it at the 2nd Rank of its First Page List, and even the "Left", who had placed it 3rd, at First Page), might, eventually, feel Happy for practically leaving Socialist Prime Minister Muscat a slight Chance to still Remain in Office until Mid-January 2020, as he Wished, or almost ? Indeed, as French Center-Right mainstream MEP Bellamy (Comp. Supra) Warned, "During this Laps of Time, he (PM. Muscat) Might Destroy Evidence", or "Block an Equiry" (etc) - May be he would Better Worry about : - "Deviating an Enquiry Away from the Right Direction", as, at least, some Latest Developments in Malta indicate, (See relevant Facts at: ..., etc).

=> So that, in Fact, as the well known, Classic Motos say : ..."The Proof of the Pudding is in the Eating", or, Otherwise, "Hic Rodus, hic Saltus !" It's Not absolutely Necessary to Read, at First, All the ... Fourty Two (42 !) Recitals (Considerants), Wide-Spread throughout Many Long Alineas, from "A" to "AO", added to the 16 Articles of that Resolution, (even if they might be All Interesting), in order to Conclude on the Essentials :

>>> Obviously, the Best (and probably Only) Way to Judge, is to Practicaly Help the Investigation of Daphne's Murder fully Advance to the Right Direction asap., in order to Find and Punish All those Really Responsible for that Bloody Crime, Naturally Included all the Real Instigators, and Not Only a few Apolitical Middlemen, (Comp. f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/daphnemurderenquirydeviationrisk.html, etc) : Timely Results speak by themselves !

Meanwhile, as the Adopted EU Parliament's Resolution urges, at its Article Number 2 : - "Any Risk of Compromising the Investigations, .... Must be Excluded, by All Means", and, Since MEPs also "Stress that this Risk Persists for as long as the (controversial Maltese) Prime Minister remains In Office", then....

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

+ Meanwhile, in an Amendment voted Today, MEPs also Welcomed EU Parliament Bureau's Decision to create an Annual European Prize for Investigative Journalism, due to be awarded in the Name of brutaly Murdered Web-journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia, (after whom is also named the Press Conference-Room here).

sarko_looks_up_applauded_after_making_the_t_point

    EU Rapporteur on Enlargment Strategy, maistream German MEP Elmar Brok, speaking to "EuroFora", welcomed the proposal made earlier this week by French President Nicolas Sarkozy for the EU to"start Now Talks with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", instead of full Accession, at a period when Ankara looks more and more unfit and/or unwilling to respect EU conditions.

    - "For Europe to have strong Political will, it must stop dilutiing itself in an endless Enlargement. It must have borders...Diversities enrich, on the condition that they don't undermine European Cohesion, and don't weaken EU Unity", Sarkozy stressed.
    
    - "Countries like Turkey share a part of common destiny with Europe, with which they have a vocation to build a Privileged Relation, to be closely associated, but not to become Member of the EU"  : "Noone respects his friends by telling them lies. Noone respects his friends by making them promises that will be never kept", he added.

    That's why "we'd better start, from now, negotiating with Turkey to create a common Economic and Security area", Sarkozy proposed.

Significantly, the French President was repeatedly and largely applauded by EU citizens, 3 times, when he made the Turkey point, (strategically placed between Europe's "Political Will" and its cultural heritage, historically open to mutually enriching dialogue with all the World, but never diluted).

    - "We could propose such a great ambition also to Russia, which must not be percieved as an Adversary of Europe, but as a Partner. Thus, we'd create a wide area, of more than 800 Million inhabitants, sharing the same Security, the same Prosperity", he concluded.

    Sarkozy's move was anounced at the eve of a Franco-German Top meeting with Chancellor Angie Merkel in Berlin on Sunday, to jointly launch the EU Elections campain, after an EU Summit at nearby Prague, to launch a new kind of relations, called "Eastern Partnership", with neighboring countries such as Urkaine, Belarus, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaidjan, etc, (to which Russia, reportedly, is not - and does not want to be - included).

    As for Ukraine, which has already expressed her wish to join the EU in future, "Kiev will have a special place, and a very important role to play", replied earlier this week in Strasbourg, to an "EuroFora" question EU Chairman in office , Czech vice-Prime Minister Alexander Vodra.

    - "This direction is more Realistic for Turkey than Accession negotiations", reacted immediately EU Parliament's Rapporteur for Enlargment Strategy, mainstream German MEP Elmar Brok, commenting Sarkozy's idea for "EuroFora"

     Particularly "as far as it concerns the respect of EU Rules by both sides", he added, hinting at Turkey's now obvious inability and/or unwillingness to abide with EU Acquis, EU Commitments (fex. on Cyprus, etc), and European Democracy/Human Rights rules. (Comp. infra).

    Brok added that, in his view, a similar proposal might be made also to Ukraine and other neighbouring Countries, regardless if they have, or not, a "European vocation". This would not necessarily mean that there couldn't be any accession prospects at all." for all the countries that might be included in this area, according to Brok.  But it's preferable, particularly for Turkey, "because it's a more Realistic approach than full Membership".

    On this point, Sarkozy's proposal, (which he'll share with German Chancellor Merkel), seems more crystal-clear.

    - "Turkey does not fullfil EU Criteria, and will never fullfil EU Criteria" on Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law. "Some have been lying to Ankara, but we must tell the Truth, and have honest and close relations with her", said meanwhile to "EuroFora" on the same issue also the President of EU Parliament's largest Group of MEPs (ChristianDemocrats/EPP), Joseph Daul.

"Hot" Debate at EU Parliament reveals CHANGE of mood towards "Suspension" of EU - Tukey talks.
------------------------------
    Earlier this week, many MEPs, and even some of those who were previously in favor of Turkey's controversial EU bid, strongly criticized the persistance and even aggravation of serious Human Rights violations in the country, that ECHR continues to "unanimously" condemn ":

      - "After winning a big victory in the latest Local Elections, the pro-Kurdish party DTP almost doubled its Elected Mayors from 52 to 98", but afterwards "more than 400 politicians were thrown to Prison and prosecuted" by the Turkish Authorities, denounced on behalf of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group, Belgian MEP Frieda Brepoels.

     At the same time, "more than 1.500 Children are closed in Turkish Prisons", she added. "What will the EU Commission do" against these facts ?

- "Turkey appears to be at greater Distance away from Copenhagen Criteria after 4 Years of accession Negotiations, than when they started !", denounced on behalf of the Liberal Group, German MEP Alexander Lambsdorf.    

"On the central issue of Press Freedom, Critical Journalists face obstacles for their accreditation, others are prosecuted, condemned, fined and/or jailed, Media blocked or closed", he denounced.   

 - "EU Made 2 grave Mistakes with Turkey : To start accession negotiations, and to continue them", despite everything, criticized Dutch MEP Bastian Belder, on behalf of the Ind/Dem group.
