* The former Ambassador of Greece to Libya during the notorious "Benghazi scandal" of 2012 of the non-elucidated yet Deadly Attack by Islamic Extremists against US Ambassador Stevens and 3 other US Agents, which shook the latest US Presidential Elections, Kyriakos Amiridis, was found Brutaly Targetted and Murdered in Brazil, as the Out-going Obama Administration is preparing to leave on January 2017  the White House after 8 Years which oversaw the Emergence of ISIS' Terrorists in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere, who have started to Attack even Europe, Africa, wider Asia, and the USA itself.


Greece is the Only European Country which is Geographicaly Located at a very Close Distance from Libya, and particularly the Nearest to the Eastern Libyan SeaCoast of Benghazi.


Even if the Athens' Goverment of 2011, (Headed by USA-Born Giorgos Papandreou then, a long-time President of the International Socialist movement), did Not participate in the Alliance of Countries which took Action over the Libyan Conflict which topped Colonel Khadafi, (mainly USA, France, the UK, Belgium, etc), nevertheless Greece played a discrete but important role, f.ex. Starting by intermediating between Libya and Western Countries, as well as, Later-on with some Islamist Groups there, into solving various "Humanitarian" affairs during that Conflict, including by providing Help incuding Ship transferts, (See Infra), etc.


When the 2012 Banghazi Scandal broke out, about the Killing of his Collegue, US Ambassador Stevens, by an Al-Queda-like Group of Islamic Extremists, just after meeting with a Turkish Senior Diplomat there, Many Speculations were made in the Medias, about eventual links to illegal Weapons-Smuggling to various Armed Gangs inside Syria, mainly via Ship-Transports accross the Mediterranean Sea, (therefore, probably also some Greek Maritime areas), and through Turkey, etc. A specific Question on this Issue had been raised by Senator Rand Paul to former USA State Secretary, and 2016 US Presidential Candidate of the Democratic Party, (Socialists), Hillary Clinton, mentioning precisely "Turkey", that she had surprisingly Skiped, claiming that she had "No Information" about that, (as also did, later-on, those State Department Officials to whom she had referred Paul for a more concrete Reply, which Never came).


Significantly, the Greek Ambassador had arrived to Libya Shortly After the Killings of US Ambassador Stevens and other 3 USA Agents by Islamist Terrorists in Benghazi, among persistent Rumours about illegal Weapons' Smuggling by Ship Transports towards various Armed Gangs in Syria, including MANPADS against Aircraft. This last, Crucial point, was reportedly Confirmed, just 1 Month Later, even by the Head of Russian President Vladimir Putin's Office, Sergei Ivanov, openly Expressing in Vienna (Austria), Moscow's "Concerns about the Risk for the Syrian Dissidents to dispose even Mobile Anti-AirCraft Systems, which came from Libya".


- "It's not yet Known in whose Hands may fall such Weapons, and which Civilian Airplane they might Down", Ivanov had Warned then.


Earlier, Amiridis, exceptionaly served also as former Head of Cabinet in the Ministry responsible for Public Order in Greece, Back on 2011, when it was oversaw f.ex. Harsh Oppression of Massive Popular Demonstrations against the Socialist-run Government of American-born former Prime Minister Giorgos Papandreou, (whose Mother was also a USA Citizen), because of his Failure to fullfil his Pre-Electoral Promisses of the 2009 Election, (when he had Contested the Fact that the Country needed urgently a strong Austerity Policy, falsely Claiming that it had "a Lot of Money"), shortly Afterwards throwing it in one of the Harder Austerity policies of History, when it was Revealed that it had a Huge Debt, provoked and accumulated during the Last 30 Years (1980-2010), mainly Governed by his own Socialist Party "PASOK").


Amiridis had also More various closer Relations to the USA, and particularly the out-going Obama Administration, while, f.ex., one of his Family members was Recently Appointed as Chancellor of UIC at the University of Chicago, the current US President's initial Base : Indeed, on 2015, Dr. Michael Amiridis, previously at South Carolina University, but also of Greek origin,  actively contributed into bringing there a brand new "Obama Library", strongly supported by the City's Mayor, Rahm Emmanuel, former Top Official at the White House.


The Murdered Greek Ambassador (as also the US Ambassador Stevens) had also developed relations with various Islamic circles, active in Socio-Political affairs too, already since his mission to Libya, where he Helped to Saveguard in a Ship Tripoli's Top Politicians etc., and to Evacuate all Greek expats living and working there on 2014, as well as, subsequently, on 2015 in Athens, where he had Helped organize an International Conference on Inter-Religious and Inter-Cultural Dialogue, etc.


Appointed afterwards as Ambassador to Brazil, just on May 2016, Kyriakos Amiridis curiously Seeked an Unusualy Long Christmas/New Year's leave, Extending from December 21, 2016, up to January 9, 2017, (i.e. about 20 Days), choosing as Residence a shady District of Rio ("Nova Iguacu"), which is reportedly  Notorious for its Exceptionaly High Crime rate, and for being Full of various Dangerous Armed Gangs, abusing of not only Drug-Traffick, but also of Kidnapings and Blackmails, paid Murders, etc, to which are often Mixed some Corrupted Policemen, usualy Linked with various Politicians to which the procure Voters, (as, f.ex., British Newspaper "Express.co.uk" and International, British-Canadian, Press Agency "Reuters" observed, on this occasion).


The Greek Ambassador was reportedly found, a few Days later, on this December 2016, brutaly Killed inside a Calcinated Rent Car there, at a very Rare Violent Deadly Incident in the International Diplomatic chronicles, as also Russia's 1st ever Ambassador, Permanent Repersentative to the CoE, in Strasbourg, Evgeni Prochorov, back on May 1998, brutaly killed inside his Burned Car, also in his way to his Family Home.


That Tragic Incident had occured in the Middle of Exceptionaly Big Tensions about a Plan to Ship and Istall Russian Air-Defense Missiles "S-300" in Cyprus on 1998, which had Upseted US and particularly Turkish officials, as far as it concerns Ankara's Air-Fighters illegaly Violating Nicosia's Aispace, f.ex. over the Occupied Territories of Cypurs, at the Northern part of the Island, controlled by the Turkish Invasion-Occupaton Army since 1974, despite several UN SC Resolutions vainly Asking its Withdrawal. "Eurofora"s co-Founder had Met and Spoken with the Victim, just a Few Hours before it occured, earlier that Day inside the CoE, Together with the then CoE's Secretary General,  Daniel Tarschys, a Liberal from Sweden, (as well as, the Next Day, with the Chief of the French Fire-Fighters who were the 1st to Find the Victim). As another Witness told us, After that Brutal Death, the No 1 Turkish Official inside the CoE, then in charge of the Protocol, discreetely Claimed to a Bulgarian Freelance, Part time Journalist, that this Exceptional Violent Incident (which occured in a Calm Countryside Road, that we used with our Family in order to Train in Bicycle our 10 Years Old Child) would have been provoked simply by the Victim's alleged tendency to "Drink too much" that Evening (sic !), as she subsequently Published in the Only Local Newspaper of Strasbourg, "DNA". I.e. practicaly attempting to Downplaying the incident in a kind of Mere, Banal "Accident".   

                                                                                                                            Brazilian Authorities found Now that Armiridis was, in Fact, Murdered by a Corrupted Brazilian Policeman, (Comp. Supra), Before putting his Body inside that Car and setting it on Fire.


But Local Police also Claimed that a Cause for that Murder would have been just a Morbide Conspiracy with the Victim's Wife, a Brazilian herself, aged almost 20 Years Younger, with whom Armiridis got engaged since his 1st Arrival in Brazil, back on 2000, initialy as Consul General at Rio.


Indeed, the Greek Ambassador had, Previously, been appointed in Brazil, as Early as since 2000, as Consul, by the then Socialist Government of former Prime Minister Costas Simitis, (when his USA-born Successor, Giorgos Papandreou, from an US Citizen Mother, was Minister on Foreign affairs), before being transfered to the Netherlands on 2003. By a strange "Coincidence", almost at the Same Time, there were also Other "PASOK"-related Greek Politicians who left Europe in order to Live in Brazil, such as, f.ex., the former Long-Time Socialist MEP, Georges Catiforis, who worked previously during Many Years at EU Parliament in Brussels and Strasbourg, (etc), also as former Head of the Greek National Delegation of MEPs, (whith whom "Eurofora"'s CoFounder had cooperated in the Past, in Parallel with another, ChristianDemocrat/EPP Top MEP"). Similar Moves were made and by a Politicaly related to PASOK University Professor living in Strasbourg, a French Lady married to a Greek University Professor, John Anastopoulos, who had told us his intention to try to become MEP in the 1999 EU Election, before he Unexpectedly Died, while his Wife became Afterwards President of a France-Brezil Association, visiting often that Big Latino-American Country, (etc).  


Earlier, Armiridis had worked in Brussels, since 1993, at the Greek Permanent Representation to the EU, from which he had returned back to Athens, in the European Affairs' Direction of the Foreign Ministry, from 1997, i.e., once again, just after former Prime Minister Simitis had won the 9/1996 Election.


Simitis, (whose Brother served as Professor of Economy in Germany, etc), has Notoriously pushed Greece to enter €urozone Earlier than Normal, i.e. already Before it completes the Necessary Reforms, (something which should happen a few Years Later-on), so that he could snatch the Following, April 2000 Election, and stay Prime Minister for 4 more Years (until 2004). For that purpose, he had to Hide the Fast Growing Debt accumulated in Greece since the 1980ies, when the first Socialisst Governments of PASOK had notoriously Hired Too Many Cushy Job holders, Political Lackeys and Cronies, in a lot of mainly Counter-Productive Civil Servants' posts, Starting to Waste an Excessive amount of Money which went Crescendo, since then, but went practicaly Unseen in EU's Luxembourg-based "EUROSTAT" Official Economic and Financial Statistics, (until it Suddenly Emerged, much Later, on 2009, provoking a Crisis).


In order to Obtain that, Simitis' Government had, in exchange, to Accept (for the 1st Time in History), Turkey's Controversial and Unpopular EU bid, i.e. to Give Ankara a Status of "Candidate" to EU Accession, since the December 1999 EU Summit in Helsinki (Finland : then Chaired by a Socialist Government with Foreign Minister Mrs Halonen : Comp. several Statements she gave on various issues to "Eurofora"s co-Founder, also as Finnish President, many Years  Later-on), Despite a lot of Serious Mass Violations of Human Rights, that ECHR had just Started, then, to openly Denounce, repeatedly Condemning Ankara's Government, added to the Bloody "Kurdish" Issue, official Threats of War against Greece in the Aegean Sea, Negation of the Armenian Genocide, Continuation of the illegal Military Occupation of the Northern Territories of Cyprus by the Turkish Army, (etc).


All that notoriously provoked in Europe a Double, Socio-Political and Economic-Financial Crisis, Blocking EU's Constitutional Reform, (after 3 "No" to a Draft EU Constitution, at Euro-Referenda in France, the Netherlands and Ireland, between 2005-2007, Bypassed only by Sarkozy's "No" to Turkey's EU bid, which allowed to Pass a Simplified Version of that Former Constitutional Reform Plan, with "Lisbon Treaty", which Entered into Force from 2010, i.e. 5 Years Later than initialy expected), and Fuelling the €uroZone's Debt "Krach" threats, (mainly via Greece's particularly Underlined Financial situation, after many "PASOK" Governents between 1981 - 2000, Started to be Tackled by the EU after Sarkozy-Merkel's 2010-2011 initial Measures, i.e. "Aid/Reform Programs" for each affected Country, and "€uroArea"'s Treaty, etc., but have Still to be Completed until Nowadays, Hopefuly after the forthcoming 2017 Elections in France and Germany, etc).


Former Long-Time USA President Bill Clinton's 1991 - 2000 Administration, notoriously was behind Both those 2 Problems, since it persistently Pushed Turkey's controversial and UnPopular EU bid, as well as Simitis' PASOK Goevrnments Precocious Entry of Greece inside €uroZone, even Before it completes the Necessary Reforms, (while it was also USA's "Goldman Sachs" Global Financial and Rating Company, which had Helped PASOK's Government of Simitis to Hide its Growing Debt, due mainly to an Excessive Clientelism of the Past, which hasn't yet been really Tackled). And it's also during the Clinton's US Administration that Started, initialy, a USA and Turkey - Backed "Islamization" Move, closely related to a Parallel Islamist Extremism and even Deadly Terrorism, already since the Beginning of the Decade of the 1990ies, (f.ex. in Maghreb Countries as Algeria, etc, in Afghanistan, Russia's Chechnya, etc), before it "Explodes", particularly with ISIS' atrocious Murderers and BeHeaders, Targetting even Innocent Civilian People, during Obama's 2009-2016 Administration, seconded by Hillary Clinton's controversial Foreign Policies mainly in Syria/Iraq and elsewhere in the World, until the Recent, 2015-2016 Mass Deadly Islamic Terrorist Attacks even inside Europe, the USA, etc.


It's in such a Context, and in Relation to such Developments, including, particularly, the 2012 Benghazi Attack, (when Amiridis was apointed Ambassador in Libya), that the Hillary Clinton's Hidden/Destroyed "E-mail"'s Scandal, which rocked US Politics from 2015 up to the 2016 Presidential Election, included also an eventual Attempt to unduly "Banalize" the Murder of a DNC Staffer, Director on Voter Expansion, Seth Conrad Rich, who was Killed by several GunShots last July 2016, around Washington DC, while "Wikileaks" Head, Julian Assange, shortly afterwards, did Not Deny, but, on the Contrary, Strongly Implied, in a Press Interview, that the Victim might have been a "Whistle-Blower" helping to Leak the Democratic Party HQ's and other E-Mails which had Started to Reveal a Series of Scandals, related to Hillary Clinton's Failed bid for the 2016 US Presidential Election, etc.


Even if Obama Administration's Police claimed that the most probable Reason for that Murder would have been just "Robbery", nevertheless, Conrad Rich had Not been Robbed of Anything. And, Later-on, "Wikileaks" reportedly Offered even a Reward of several Tens of Thousands of Dollars for Information able to lead to the arrest of the Killers. Facts which obviously Support the Impression of several Observers that there might have been an Attempt by some to Cover-up a Political Motivation behind Claims Exclusively pointing at Ordinary Criminality only.


And Nowadays Claim, by Local Authorities of Rio in Brazil, that Ambassador Amiridis would have been Murdered because of a Banal Issue related to his Brazilian Wife's unfaithfullness, by her "Lover" : a Corrupted Policeman, obviously does Not Excude at all the Possibility for the Murderer to have, eventualy, Acted as Many Other such Corrupted Policemen notoriously Use to do Often in that thorny District : I.e. to have, perhaps, Murdered the Greek Ambassador after being Paid for that, directly or Indirectly, f.ex. by a Politician (Comp. Supra), so that he naturaly Exploited, for that purpose, any Security Failure, including the amove-mentioned behavior of the Victim's Brazilian Wife, among others : Obviously, one among those 2 Scenarios, (Both Frequent in that Suburb) does Not Exclude the Other...


Meanwhile, just a Few Days Earlier from Now, this December 2016, (by a Coincidence, almost when Ambassador Amiridis was Declared "Missing"), a Federal US Court notoriously Concluded, after a Long Procedure, that a Complaint, lodged by American NGOs, including "Judicial Watch", had been Erroneously Rejected previously by a Lower Court, while it Denounced the Fact that the current USA's State Secretary, Kerry, hadn't asked from the Attorney General to seek from Hillary Clinton much More among her Emais during her Mission as former Head of the State Department, (i.e. including during the 2012 Islamist Terrorist Deadly Attacks agains US Ambassador Stevens and others on September 11, 2012, but had only left it up to Herself and to the FBI. So that, at the Beginning of Next Year, 2017, the incoming, New US Federal Administration, under President-Elect Don Trump, would have to Decide whether, how and up too which point, it should, eventually, Launch a brand New Invesigation,  Starting by Officialy Asking for much More emails froom Hillary Clinton.


=> Situated now, among such Manifold but Converging "Hot" Issues, any Serious Investigation on Ambassador Amiridis' brutal Murder, already an Exceptional Incident in itself), should Not Abstain from adequately Examining Any Legitimate Hypothesis or Questions still remaining without crystal-clear and Convincing Answers.

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 :
----------------------------------

imag0103_400

    - "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.
