*Strasbourg/EU Parliament/Angelo Marcopolo/- In Principle, Assange should be given an Asylum in Europe, from Extradition to the US, Replied bis to an "Eurofora"s Question the EU Parliament's Rapporteur on WhistleBlowers' Protection, Virginie Roziere, French Radical/Socialist (Center-Left) MEP.

 - "According to Press Reports, the New French State Secretary on EU Affairs, (Amélie de Montchalin), would have declared that it should be considered whether to give Assange an Asylum in Europe, in case of Extradition demand. Even if this may not be foreseen yet by the current EU Law on WhistleBlowers (which, for the moment, limits Protection in cases of Natural Environment, Corruption, etc), de lege lata, at least, "de lege ferenda", and from a Political (principles') point of view, according to your Experience, (also as EU Parliament's Rapporteur on WhistleBowers' Protection), what do you honestly think that should be done in this case ? Should there be any Protection from a European side, or should he be Extradited ?", we asked.

 + Taking also into account the Fact that, "in this case, it's a very Particular affair, because it's not only about someone who reveals a truth, or not, but also about Helping, in addition, Others to reveal" certain truths : "It has a Double Aspect", (from the WhistleBlowers' point of view), "Eurofora" observed, as far as "Wikileaks" Founder and Editor is concerned.

- Indeed, "if we Focus on the Spirit, and the Political Aim of the Law (EU Directive) that we (EU Parliament) Voted Today, Julien Assange should be Protected !", EU Parliament's Rapporteur on WhistleBlowers clearly Replied positively to the above-mentioned "Eurofora"s question.

- This "should be done by some (EU) Member States, because Asylum is given by States, not by the EU itself", she technically reminded in this egard.

 - "Perhaps, the EU should Find a Member State to give Asylum to Julian Assange, while being Supported by many Others" (EU Countries+), she practically suggested. "Because, in such kind of issues, often individual States Hesitate to indispose alone such an important international partner as the USA".

- Thus, at any case, "Yes, I think that, indeed, We Should effectively give him an Asylum, regarding USA's demand for Extradition !", EU Parliament's Rapporteur on WhistleBlowers positively Confirmed, in her reply to the above-mentioned "Eurofora"s Question.

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

- However, "I'd give a Different Opinion on Sweden's demand, which is a European Country, and well Advanced on WhistleBlowers' Protection, so that it's not so much Suspected from this point of view, and, for Sweden, the point is about (alleged) Rape and Sexual Relation, and even WhistleBlowers should have to Reply to Justice vis a vis such kind of Accusations, so that I find normal for Assange to Explain himself vis a vis the Swedish Courts", she added, from a Different point of view.

- "But, there, we are Far Away from the issues of (EU's Directive on) WhistleBlowers, and we are facing issues of Ordinary Law", she concluded.

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

+ Asking and Receiving by EU's Rapporteur the chance to Add an Observation, as far as the Main thrust about Asylum from Extradition to the US was concerned, "Eurofora" noted the Fact that, "also in the USA, there is a Debate about Assange, where Contradictions exist at all political sides, even inside the Governing political family.

>>> Indeed, f.ex., at the mainstream Conservative NewsMedia "Fox News", the popular Journalist, (allegedly Favorite also of new US President Don Trump), Tucker Carlson, stressed, in a Special Edition focused on "Wikileaks"' Founder, that, in fact, ""Assange’s real sin was preventing Hillary Clinton from becoming President", (when she was Candidate of the "Socialists"/Democrats, back on 2016)...

=> Therefore, eventual "Suspicions" (of eventual Political bias) may obviously exist also vis a vis the Swedish "Socialist" current Goverment, (considering, in addition, the fact that former US President Barack Hussein Obama, had notoriusly used tha Swedish pretext as a way to Trap "Wikileaks"' Founder, since he was afraid that Freedom of Speech principles might Oppose a Condemnation in the US)...

At any case, Assange's UK Lawyer reportedly promised that he would accept to give thorough explanations and reply to eventual questions, if Sweden decided to re-open a closed procedure of the Past.

That affair reportedly concerned short relations, withOut any Violence at all, (but focusing on alleged Preventive Health protection matters, particular to the Swedish Law), at an exceptional moment, when Assange's Credit Cards had been Blocked by Obama's US Administration, so that, while visitng Sweden for Public Conferences, he found himself Deprived even from spare Money to Pay Hotels of his choice, and practically obliged to accept the Invitations of 2 Swedish women, who allegedly assaulted him, and one even Boasted, afterwards, to a friend, that she had managed to "Get" Assange...

Later-on, the Swedish Authorities had Stopped any Procedure against Assange, while UNO's Human Rights bodies, at nearby Geneva, have notoriously Judged that the Forced Refuge at Ecuador's Embassy in London, (precisely in order to Escape fro Sweden's demand of extradition, Behind which "Wiileaks" suspected that was Hidden Obama's USA : Comp. Supra), during Many Years, was a blatant Violation of his basic Human Rights, and had already started to Harm his own Health, after being obliged to live in reclusion, without any Freedom to move, during so many Years.

 sarko_merkel_press_400

    Before the end of 2009, France and Germany will take strong initiatives to open "new Horizons" needed by Europe and the World, going well beyond the current Crisis' management, anounced French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel, reassuring that both a judgement on Lisbon Treaty by nearby Karlsruhe German Federal Court, and the forthcoming National Elections in Germany would confirm their capacity to act.    

They were replying to Press questions in Berlin, after key-regional elections on Sunday, where Merkel's ChristianDemocratic party kept everywhere a strong 1st and won the possibility to forge a New Majority with Liberals at the largest of 3 Landers : Saxony (4 millions inhabitants), while its main competitor, the Socialdemocrat party fell to unprecedented lows : Tackled by the small "Linke" (left) party in Saarland (1 million inhabitants), it became even smaller than it in Saxony and Thuringen (3 million inhabitants), where SPD arrived only third. While its usual partners, the "Greens" also fell down, contrary to CDU's new partners, the FDP Liberals, who go up.

    - "At any case, at the end of the year (2009), if things go as scheduled, we shall take strong initiatives, showing that Europe needs a Franco-German axis, as well as the World, even if it never excludes other" countries to join, replied Sarkozy to a question if France and Germany will revive the "European dream", by "relauncing the EU motor" for the Future, with actions going further than the mere management of the global crisis, (as it was done fex. in the Past with the creation of the "Euro" Monetary zone, etc).

    - "I am convinced that the Franco-German friendship must be constantly nourished by New Projects", he added."There are many areas of cooperation where we intend to take, very soon, some Franco-German initiatives, which will allow to open more Horizons" to the EU, Sarkozy stressed.

    But if "we don't speak about that now, it's only in order to avoid interfering in important elections coming in Germany", he observed. However, "we have already started to consider the Future with the (German) Chancellor, and what we can do in order to honour our predecessors". "We are already speaking about that, and we are preparing things". "I am working very well together with Mrs Merkel, and I wish that it goes on", Sarkozy concluded.

    - "It's important for EU's credibility that France and Germany advance forward together", stressed Merkel from the outset. "Don't worry about Germany's capacity to undertake initiatives" with France, she added. "France and Germany will be perfectly able to make proposals" for the EU.

    -  "After-crisis" plans must be prepared, meanwhile, with measures "advancing progressively", Merkel anounced. And, for the short term, we must deal also with EU Citizens' dismay since they feel that it's a Scandal for some in the Financial Markets to be paid with excessive "Bonuses", etc, she agreed with Sarkozy.

    - "Abuses in financial markets must stop", stressed also Sarkozy. Backing Merkel's announcement that France and Germany call for an EU meeting to forge "a crystal-clear European position" in view of the G-14 Summit at Pittsburg, he warned that "everyone will have to undertake his responsibilities, in front of World's Public Opinion. particularly those who don't want to make the same effort of regulation as France and Germany".

    Moreover, "Global Trade cannot be correctly dealt, without taking into account also Environmental and Social rules", Sarkozy added, referring to recently expressed positions against Unfair Competition via Environmental and/or Social Dumping, (See earlier "EuroFora"'s publications).

    Such moves are obviously linked to the need to ensure at least an elementary respect for Human Rights by Third Countries, (f.ex. exploitation of Children's work, etc) in order to avoid, precisely, any such Social Dumping.

    - "EU has Values, protecting Human Rights and Human Dignity", and "it cannot close its eyes" in front of grave violations, particularly "Torture and/or killings", added, indeed, Sarkozy.

    Thus, "the time comes, where decisions must be taken". But, in case of "Sanctions", "all International opinion should be convinced of the need to take action", he observed.

    Expressed on the occasion of recent developments in Iran, the same principles should logically apply also to other similar cases, including fex. that of Hundreds of ECHR judgements' condemning f;ex. Turkey for grave crimes, (as Torture, brutal Killings, Enforced "Disappearances", Destruction of Family Homes, harassments and oppressive violations of Freedom of Speech, etc).

    Meanwhile, questioned on (EU Commission's chair)  Barroso's bid to succeed himself for a second mandate, they both expressed a "wish" or a "feeling" that "EU Parliament"'s various political Groups might fix a date for decisions "during September". However, is he is endorsed before the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, it will be legally necessary to re-vote anew for a full term of office afterwards, according to EU Legal Experts, revealed recently in Strasbourg the experienced former President of EU Parliament's Constitutional Committee, German Socialist MEP Jo Leinen. And Germany will not vote for Lisbon Treaty's ratification but only "on September 8 and 18", revealed Merkel, ( i.e. after EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg).

    - Therefore, "for EU Commissioners' appointment, it's too early yet, because we must wait for the ratification of Lisbon Treaty" by all 27 EU Member countries, including naturally Ireland's Referendum on early October, said to "EuroFora" the influential President of EU Parliament's largest group of MEPs, Joseph Daul, expressing, however, the hope that a controversial deal with the head of the Socialist Group of MEPs, Martin Schultz of Germany, might hold for Barroso alone, at a forthcoming vote due to fix the Strasbourg plenary's Agenda.

    But MEPs reportedly just "postponed" for 1 week all their previously scheduled group meetings (See : http://www.euractiv.com/en/future-eu/barroso-unveil-summer-homework-week/article-184825 );

    However, while the choice of a new EU Commission's President by EU Parliament is supposed, according to many MEPs' wish, take place according to EU policy issues, paradoxically, this would mean that Barroso's bid would pass before even the anouncement of France and Germany's "initiatives" for EU's "new Horizons"...

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 ?
