*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- Shortly Before the Crucial, forthcoming National Elections of September 2021 in EU's Biggest Country : Germany, suddenly, an UnExpected Shift in Citizens' Votes in 2 Key Federated States near Strasbourg (France) Revealed a Popular Quest in favor of a kind of "New Right", (See Facts + Definitions Infra). But, will a Slow to move Establishment Hear the Voice of the German People, on Time and Clearly ?

- Giving an Absolute Majority of 52 Representatives, to the ChristianDemocrats (CDU), Rightists (AFD), Liberals (FDP), and "Free Voters" (pro-Direct Democracy+ Conservatives), against Only a Minority of 49 to "Socialists" and "Greens", while Also Rejecting the Leftists withOut Any Representative, and Even withOut Taking into Account an augmented number of "Various" (Most of whom Use to Stand Traditionaly on the Right), and Nonobstant Also a somewhat Higher Abstention than in the Past, apparently Mostly at the Right), the Voters of "Rheinland-Pfalz"' German Länder, (located at the North-West of Strasbourg's French Region of "Great East", marks, Today, the Greatest Surprize. *

    Keeping 27,7% of the Votes to mainstream Center-Right of CDU, (with 31 Representatives), Followed by the Rightists of the AfD with 8,3% of the Votes (and 9 Representatves), Added to another 5,7% of Voters from the Liberals/FDP, and 5,5% from the "Free Voters", (with 8 more Representatives Each), the Long-Time Party formerly Directed by Chancellor Angie Merkel, (2005-2020), Nowadays Chaired by former MEP Armin Laschet (2021-2024), is Still largely Able to Lead, But will have Now to Negociate with 3 More, Independent Political Groupings, if it wants to get an Absolute Majority... The Paradox, Obviously is that, While Laschet (that "Eurofora" has Already met in EU Parliament in Strasbourg, in the Past), has a Notorious Reputation of being quite "Centrist", Nevertheless, if former CDU Supporters' current Fugue towards Various Destinations at his Right Persists Further, (be it towards the AfD, FDP, Freie Weller, Various Right, or Nowadays' Abstentionists), the CDU Leadership will have to Find a Way, Ideas, and Resources Making them Credible to those People too...

    + A partly Similar Trend emerged Today, mutatis-mutandis, also at the Neighbouring Baden-Wurtemberg German Länder, located at the North-East of Strasbourg's French Region of "Great East" Region : Here it Apparently looks like a "Pat", with an Equal Share, until now, of 77 Representatives Each for the "Left" ("Greens" 58, and "Socialists" 19), and the "Right", ("CDU" 42, with Liberals 18, and Rightists/AfD 17). But the Right seems to represent More Voters in that Regional Parliament : 49,8 % , than the Left : 43,6% ! However, Again, the Mainstream Center-Right of "CDU" Keeps the Lead of Votes at the Right side, with 24,1%, Followed by the Liberals (10,5%) and Rightists/AfD (9,7%), as well as "Various" Right (5,5%), while, at the Left, the "Greens" with 32,6% are added to 11% of "Socialists", (the Leftists remaining Out of that Parliament, as the "Free Voters", mainly Rightists). But, from Now on, any CDU Leadership will have to Negociate and Convince also ...3 Other Parties (Liberals, Rightists, and Various Right), If it wants to Head all the Right Side of the New, 2021+ Political Spectrum, (Comp. Supra)...

From this Topical point of view, Obviously, Armin Laschet's apparently Smooth "Modus Vivendi" Deal with Friedrich Merz, after Mid-January 2021, concerning their Foreseable Future, Might, Naturaly, Help things, in practice, at the Aftermath of the September 2021 National Elections. However, to be Realist, such a Creation of a "New Right" Coalition, aiming to Govern Germany, in one way or another, might Need also something More...

In this regard, it's Not a pure matter of Chance that the above-mentioned Developments, Both concerning Also "Greens"' Future Relations with the Right (as it was the case in Baden-Wurtemberg) or the Left (as it happened at Rheinland-Pfalz), and Both located Near Strasbourg, had Also Various Exceptional (even if InDirect) Links even with the Historic, Long-Time former Chancellor Helmut Kohl, the "Father of ReUnification" of Both Germany itself and of All Europe, particularly around a precise Moment of PanEuropean and Global History :

- Indeed, Kohl was Also a Key for the Adoption by the CoE of its landmark "Oviedo" Treaty on "BioEthics", i.e., about Human Rights and Bio-Medicine, back on 1997-1998, as well as of a Relevant Protocol against "Human Cloning", around CoE's Historic 1997 Summit of Heads of State/Government, held in Strasbourg then, amidst successive rotating Presidencies held by France, Germany, and Greece, (etc), as well as a Traditional Supporter of elementary BioEthical Values inside Germany itself. And, When "Eurofora"'s co-Founder, Both at CDU's and the Green's Annual Party Congresses, successively at Nearhy Karlsrhe and Freiburg, on 2009 and 2010, respectively, largely Backed the Idea (UnBelievable, then) of an Attempt to Bring "ChristianDemocrats" and "Greens" Together, even at a Governing level, soon partly Endorsed and Strongly Backed even by then Pope Benedict on 2011, (particularly at his Landmark Official Speech in the Bundestag, at Berlin : See ... + ..., etc), this Obviously was done in View to Help the Development also of certain Basic (and Crucial for Humankind's foreseable Future) Values, includng BioEthical, extending to "Human Ecology" and "Human Nature" Protection too, in view, particularly, of some Recent and Evolving Technologies with Great Risks to the Detriment of all Humanity, in case of practicaly Possible, Eventual Abuses, (Comp., f.ex., Among Others, also : ... + ... + ..., etc).

=> So that, when Some were pushed to more or less Drop, or, at least, Stop really Defending, even some Crucial, Nowadays, BioEthical Values, (f.ex. on the Controvrersial and UnPopular "Same Sex Marriage" among Homosexuals, including Submission of Children to the Force of Homosexuals, under Pretext of "Adoption", etc, while some, elsehere accross the World, soon Started Even to Back the Artificial Fabrication of Human Beings in Labos, by Technocrats, under Any Hollow Pretext,  until they Reached also the Genetic Manipulations Transmissible to all Descendants, Even in Future Generations, i.e. Inevitably Risking to Create and Impose Real "Racism", Dividing Humanity into Distant and/or Hostile Races, etc, (See, f.ex. the November 2018 Notorious Incident at Hong-Kong, a December 2019 Positive Response by China, immediately Followed by the present Deadly Virus' of 2020, and some who appear to Seek to somehow Exploit that Pandemic's Threats in order to Impose several Strange and/or Controversial Agendas on 2021, Serving some Shady Interests, (etc), inevitably Raise Various Legitimate Concerns among the People, who Need Convincing, Free and Rational Public Debates, serious Policies, and Conscious Political Leaders to Trust.

=> All this, Obviously, involves, but is Not Only a Matter of Economy, Security, and/or GeoPolitics, etc., since it's, Fundamentaly Also a Core Issue of Human and Society Values.

>>> And, most probably, almost Certainly, it's Not Far Away from some Recently "Burning" Topical Issues, Both in Europe's and USA's, as well as Others' Global Key Players' Nowadays Political Agenda, (including what some might call that current Problem which looks like the "Creation of a New Right", as Also the German People might have Tried to tell us Today : Comp. Supra)...

Hu Jia's prize brings SAKHAROV's wife to "EuroFora" on murders of Journalists Politkofskaya, Gongadze and Adali :

- Elena Bonner : "All Journalists' murders must be fully investigated", without Double Standards.                                                                                    

During a special Mega-Event to celebrate 20 Years of SAKHAROV Prize for "Freedom of Thought", attributed in 2008 by EU Parliament to jailed Chinese Cyber-Dissident Hu JIA, the move was reinforced by strongly criticizing the persisting impunity in three cases of Journalists' Murders, such as POLITKOVSKAYA in Russia, GONGADZE in Ukraine, and ADALI in Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus.

Any bureaucratic doubt about whether Cyber-dissidents like Hu JIA might have, or not, a right to be protected as all Journalists must be, particularly when they take risks to search, find and publish original and critical News on issues of general interest to the society, could not resist to the emotion provoked by the message of his Wife, Zeng JINYAN spectacularly transmitted at a big screen in EU Parliament's hemicycle :

- "The most important and most interesting thing he did was to ... say the Truth :.. to write about the phenomena he observed... He never stopped Publishing.. on websites, so that the Public could learn about the reality .. and understand it.  In my view, this has been his greatest contribution", stressed the young wife of the jailed man, eager to cite also the cases of other critical journalists who faced various kinds of "harassment".

 - "Welcoming all those who have suffered for defending Human Rights", EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING, who had invited to Strasbourg all former Sakharov prize-winners from various Countries throughout the World, said that "China needs Europe, and Europe needs China : A great nation" with which "we want to have a good relationship", "association and ..friendship". "But we are never going to stop our fight for Human Rights, and No Government can expect this from us".

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of Peace, if Human Rights are left out. In fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.

    It's in this spirit that MEPs adopted, on Thursday, a Resolution denouncing that "the criminal
investigation and trial following the murder of (a) Journalist ...raises serious concerns with regard to transparency and respect for the rule of law", when a "brutal killing has not yet been fully investigated and solved in a satisfactory way".

    The text refered to dissident Journalist "Anna POLITOVSKAYA", a critic of Tchechen conflict, killed some years ago in Moscow, where Russian Authorities have found, arrested and are currently judging two executants, while also searching to arrest also a 3rd one, allegedly escaped in Belgium. But they have not yet found the instigators.

     Similar texts were adopted recently also on dissident Ukranian Journalist Georgiy GONGADZE's murder, for which Ukranian Authorities have at least found, arrested and condemned 2 executants to 12 and 13 Years of jail, but not yet the instigators. For that purpose, they recently accepted an International Experts team to participate to the investigations.     

But, it's only for the Murder of dissident Turkish Cypriot Journalist ADALI, in the occupied territories of Cyprus, that Turkey has NOT yet found ANYONE responsible, and even claimed recently inside CoE that it would be "impossible" to do so !    

These astonishing differences exist despite the fact that ECHR condemned alike Ukraine and Turkey with 2 Judgements on the same year : 2005, for the murders of  Journalists GONGADZE and ADALI, strong critics of Corruption in Ukraine, and of Ankara's policies on mass-influx of Turkish Settlers in the Occupied Territories of Cyprus, respectively.    

Regarless of that, CoE's Committee of Ministers, who is entrusted with the duty to supervise execution of ECHR's judgements, has just asked Ukraine's Government to reply to further questions on Gongadze's murder before March 2009, while Turkey, curiously, got a longer postponement for answering questions on Adali's murder, until June...   

A comparison of these cases, raises serious questions about Double Standards :

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

On TRANSPARENCY :
--------------------------
    On Gongadze's murder, CoE's body speaks even about the participation of
"an INTERNATIONAL group of Experts" in the Investigation, (f.ex. of "Tape Recordings"), accepted by Ukraine.
    On the contrary, on Adali's murder, CoE is obliged to repeatedly ask (for a 2nd
time) Turkey whether, at least, it informed the victims' Family, or not...
------------------------------
- On EFFICIENCY :
-----------------------
On Gongadze's murder, CoE formally "recalls that the Committee (of Ministers) ..URGED the Ukranian authorities.. to TAKE ALL NECESSARY INVESTIGATIVE STEPS TO ACHIEVE CONCRETE and VISIBLE RESULTS in the INVESTIGATION, aimed at the Identification of the INSTIGATORS and Organisers of the Murder", and "STRONGLY INVITED the Ukranian Authorities to provide information on the PROGRESS IN THE INVESTIGATION", before MARCH 2009.

But, on Adali's murder, on the contrary, CoE's body merely .. "took note" of the "arguments presented by" Cyprus, which denounce the absence of any proof of new "investigation" by Turkey. Following Turkey's own suggestion (!), it simply "noted" that there is "no limitation period" for "any new element" to "lead potentialy (sic !) to a Re-Opening of the Investigation". Without saying who might find any such "new" fact, since Turkey stoped searching... It also POSTPONED the issue until .. JUNE  !
-----------------------
 - On the PUNISHMENT OF THOSE RESPONSIBLE :
----------------------
 -  On Gongadze's murder case, Ukranian Authorities already arrested and condemned, at least 2 suspects, to 12 and 13 Years of jail. And on Politkovskaya's murder at least 2 suspects are judged, and a 3rd one "wanted".

On the contrary, on Adali's murder case, the Turkish authorities simply claim that "it had not been possible to obtain new .. information .. on the basis of which criminal charges could be brought against ANY person" !...

Moreover,  a LETTER sent by Turkey ...2 Years after CoE's 2006 call to re-investigate anew Adali's murder case, is totally EMPTY of Facts ! As Cypus' Delegation denounced earlier, Turkey's Letter ONLY CLAIMS that a "New Investigation" was made without any result, but does NOT even cite ANY FACT to prove it :

F.ex.,on the crucial issue of the "MOTIVATIONS" behind Adali's murder, noted by ECHR, Turkey MERELY CLAIMS that "all allegations  were investigated; without result", but OMITS ANY FACT TO PROVE IT !..(It doesn't even remind which were these "allegations").. .

+ On ECHR's astonishment that the Turkish Occupation regime didn't produce any "BALLISTIC REPORT" on the Shots which murdered Adali, Turkey again repeats, 12 years later, that, still, even until now, "it  was not possible to obtain the BalisticReport"...

- As for the astonishing absence of key-WITNESSES' Testimonies, denounced by ECHR, Turkey agains repeats various pretexts avoiding to reveal anything, (Fex. that a person "left" the Occupied Territories  "on 2002", or that another witness was heard, but without revealing nothing of what he said, etc).

Turkey obviously "FAILS TO MEET THE CRITICISM made BY THE COURT" for lack of any efficient Investigation in Adali's case, concluded Cyprus' Government.
---------------------------------------------
Replying to our Question which COMPARED these 3 outstanding cases of "JOURNALISTS MURDERS", Adali, Gongadze and Politkovskaya, in order to avoid "Double Standards" by asking from Ukraine and Russia more than what is asked EU candidate Turkey, many European personalities were critical /

They criticised Ankara's recent claim at the CoE to stop investigating, because it would be "impossible to find anyone" responsible for the 5 bullet shots which killed Kutlu ADALI in front of his Family Home, contrary to the other two Journalists' murders, where Ukraine and Russia at least arrested the executants, searching now for the instigators :
----------------------------------

    - "Where was that ? In Turkish Occupied Cyprus ? WITHOUT ANY DOUBT : Any murder of Journalist should be investigated in full ! All these Murders must be investigated !", replied the famous SAKHAROV's wife, Elena BONNER to our question on Adali's case, compared to Gongadze and Politofskaya.

    Elena Bonner spoke us EXCLUSIVELY shortly after being honored by the President
of EU Parliament on the occasion of 20 Years of her husband's SAKHAROV Prize.

    A strong personality, Sakharov's wife even had to struggle against an anonymous EU staffer who, astonishingly, tried to stop her speaking when h heard our question on "Turkey" (!) : - "Please, let me translate, she continues
speaking, don't stop us !", had to cry Sakharov's daughter, (a Journalist
herself), who was translating her mothers' reply, (obliged to speak louder to
make her voice heard despite the harassment).. (= + Audio Proof !)

    Earlier, Elena Bonner also fustigated "Double Standards" at another case, on
Western countries' attitude vis a vis Kosovo and the Kurds : -F.ex. "You have
recognized a few 400.000 Kosovars as an "independent" country, but you still
deny that to 30 millions of Kurds in Turkey !", she denounced.
-----------------------------
    - "This (ADALI's murder) is an issue which should be pursued by the Committee
for Human Rights. That's why we have one, and it's its duty to examine cases of
Journalists' murders as the one you referred to. You should bring the case in
front of that Committee", suggested in reply to our question on Adali, EU
Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING.

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of PEACE, if HUMAN RIGHTS are left out :
in fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.
--------------------------------------
    + "For us (European/International Federation of Journalists) it's clear :
Whenever a Journalist is Murdered, the Investigation should continue until
those Responsible are found !", replied earlier to another question on ADALI
EFJ/IFJ's Secretary General, Aidan WHITE.

    Speaking as a matter of General Principle, White asked us for "concrete data"
on the execution of ECHR's judgement on Adali case, in order to "look at it in
depth" and "make a formal statement", in comparison with the other Murdered
Journalist case, also pending at CoE's  Ministers for completing its execution,
on Ukranian Gongadze.
----------------------------------------------------
     From EU Rapporteur on Human Rights, vice-President of EU Parliament Liberties' Committee, MEP Giusto CATANIA, we were told that, since there is an ECHR judgement in both Adali and Gongadge's cases, "Turkey must naturally execute the judgement and make a full and efficient investigation, until those responsible for the Journalist's murder are found and punished".

    Even if "we (Catania's "EuroLeft" Group) support Turkey's EU perspectives, this does not mean that Ankara should not behave properly. On the contrary, it means that they have to meet tough conditions, particularly on Human Rights", was added on the occasion of Adali's murder case.

    Moreover, "since you raise the issue of Mr. Adali's muder as a part of a Series of Journalist's murders, including fex. Gongadze, Politkovskaya, ao., tthen we (EU) could also act together with CoE's Commissioner on Human Rights, Thomas HAMMARBERG, it was suggested.

    - "We (EU) must step up efforts against the problem of IMPUNITY : Real Peace cannot exist without Justice",  stressed also this week at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, French Minister on Human Rights, Mrs Rama YADE.
