*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).

Sarkozy and Merkel want deals with Obama on European Security at Strasbourg's NATO 2009 Summit

oscenato
------------------
In parallel but concording moves, EU Chair, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel both invited this week US-President elect, Barack Obama, to discuss important deals breaking new ground on European Security during the NATO's 60 Years Anniversary Summit of Heads of State in Strasbourg, where Obama is expected to make his 1st visit to Europe as a President on April 2009.

Merkel focused mainly on smoother NATO - EU Defence and Security policy cooperation, while Sarkozy spoke about PanEuropean Security, associating both Russia and the USA, proposing to freeze missile and shields' deployement until an agreement is reached.

But both tackled some hard nuts to crack : Turkey's VETO against the participation of EU Member Cyprus to EU-NATO cooperation, and Russia's anouncement on deployment of missiles up to Kaliningrad, at EU's belly, in reply to USA's wish to set up missile shields in EU States such as Poland or Czech Republic, etc.


---------------------
- "Certainly...one of the points that we'll dicuss with the New US President", Barak OBAMA, "who will come f'or the 1st time in Europe as president, at the NATO Summit", co-hosted by France and Germany in Strasbourg, ""concerns, above all, the European Security and Defence Policy" (ESDP), and "the relations between NATO and its partners", with whom it should "work together", anounced earlier this week Merkel.

We must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", because of a "series of practical issues, sometimes difficult to understand", but that "we must discuss".

- "An example" of that is "the issue of Cyprus and Turkey", said Merkel, where Ankara raises problems "from Kosovo up to Afghanistan", as also CoE's chair, Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt recently observed in Strasbourg replying to EuroFora's questions.

- "We must do something to smoothen this problem for good, and not only on a case-by-case basis, laboriously negotiated each time". Here, we must find "a reasonable and adequate concept to articulate NATO and European Security and Defense policy", Merkel stressed.

- "With good will from all sides, it could and should be posible. Germany wants also to help on that". Otherwise, "the coming generations will not understand why it took Decades to do so". But, if we "don't even achieve that for Decades, this would be an Historic Failure !", the German Chancellor warned

- "I think that our American partners are increasingly realizing that", Merkel said, pleading for "a stronger European Security and Defence policy, with which, I believe, the Atlantic Security Partnership can also strengthen and solidify".

Meanwhile, USA is also due to take in 2009 a special status inside EU-led EUROCORPS, the European Army HeadQuarters, based in Strasbourg.

Merkel said that after meeting in Berlin with NATO's Secretary General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, earlier this week, precisely in order to "prepare NATO's Summit", scheduled for the beginning of April 2009 in Strasbourg.

Scheffe, knows well Strasbourg, since he chaired the CoE, as Holland's Foreign Minister, when he brokered a controversial deal precisely on Turkey and Cyprus about the implementation of ECHR judgements on Greek Cypriot displaced persons' houses and properties in 2003. He returned later at least once, for a WEO meeting at the CoE, where he precisely had highlighted such EU - NATO issues.

EU Commission's 2008 Report on Turkey has just observed that, on European Defense - Security policy, "Turkey continues to object to EU-NATO Cooperation which would involve all EU Member States". "This created Problems for EU-NATO co-operation in the context of Civilian ESDP missions, in particular in Kosovo and Afghanistan".

 French EU Chair, President Sarkozy and Merkel are visiting Washington on Friday and Saturday for a Global G-20 Summit with current US President George Bush, on the sidelines of which are expected preparatory contacts with US President-elect Obama's entourage, even if himself might stay in Chicago until he takes over on January 21.

Before going to Washington, Sarkozy concluded today an UE - Russia Summit with Dmitry Medvedev, where they "spoke in length on PanEuropean Security" :

- As EU President, I proposed that we meet on mid-2009 in a framework such as OSCE's in order to set the foundations of a Future Pan-European Security, which would associate Russia and USA, and that, meanwhile, nobody speaks about deploying missiles or shields, which complicate the situation".

- NATO's Summit in Strasbourg-Kehl, on April 2009 is a perfect occasion to discuss with our American friends and to prepare a possible OSCE Summit for these issues f.ex. for June or July", Sarkozy concluded.

- We must all abstain from Unilateral measures" dangerous for Europe's security. "Russia only reacted to decisions taken by some other countries. But if they are ready to cooperate, we are ready to discuss. EU could be an intermediary", added Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, before going himself too at the Washington G-20 Economic Summit.

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 ?
