*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- For a 3rd Time in a Row, controversial Politicians (including Foreign Interferences, as from an USA's Establishment, etc) Clashed with Catholic Christians and other People up to the level of the Pope, apparently taken even personaly as Target of Attacks by a Shameless Lobby of Dark Interests. But enough is enough  : Nobody is going to be fuled again in a probable Dirty War, skipping Open Dialogue and Crystal-clear Democratic Debate, to the Detriment of People's elementary Human Rights and Freedoms !

In Brief, to put it in a Nutshell :

-  Already John-Paul II had been practicaly pushed to Death, by a "Coincidence", just After Succeeding to Boost, at New York, a landmark UNO's General Assembly Resolution against all forms of Human Clonning by doubtful Genetic Manipulations, as early as Since 2004-2005, and while he was, as it seems, Expected to re-Visit EU and CoE Institutions in Europe, apparently including on relevant Topical Issues of BioEthics.

+ This was Followed, since 2009 up to 2012, apparently by a Series of various Aggresions, Initialy against his successor (and former Long-Time close Colaborator), now Pope Emerite Benedict XVI, Starting just After a Delicate Meeting with Former POTUS Barack Hussein Obama, Soon after his Controversial 1st Measure : to Allow Genetic Manipulations on Human Embryos, (that his Predecessor, former US President GWBush had Promised and kept Twice Prohibited), when Benedict just Published his Encyclic "Caritas in Veritatis", with a Stern Warning against Dengers to Humanity by possible Abuses of such Technologies : Immediately Afterwards he was even Physicaly Hit 2 Times in UnPrecedented Incidents, once by allegedly Falling overNight (sic !) and Seriously Wounding his Right Hand, to which was Added, Only 1,5 Month Later, Also by a Physical Assault from an apparently Mentaly Unstable Person during a Mass, (which was So Violent that it threw him on the Ground and Broke the Leg Bones of an important French Cardinal, who was Hospitalized). This was Soon Followed, from 2010, by an, also UnPrecedented, Notorious Big and systematic Slandering of the Catholic Church, at an International level, about alleged, Fake, EZxagerated or Real alleged Abuses of Children or Young Men in the Past ... Decades :  including 30, 40 or even More Years ago, (while, on the Contrary, Similar Problems in various Other Organisations (f.ex. Education, Politics, Economy, Medias, Sport, etc., were, Curiously, Ignored or Downgraded)... Finaly, a mainly 2011-2012 Direct Series of Harsh Personal Threats and/or Attacks against Benedict hjimself, Covert, Leaked or Apparent, (Including alleged Plots to Brutaly Oust or Neutralize him), Ceased Only with his Surprizing Retirement (Officialy attributed to "Health" reasons) on 2013... But Even Afterwards, around 2019, when was Published a New Biographical Book including Conversations with a Journalist, Excetionaly, its Translations were either Hindered or Curtailed, Skipping the Post-2009 Events on BioEthics, etc., to the point that he Denounced Attempts to Muzzle him, mainly Because he was "Opposed to the artificial Fabrication of Humans in Labos", ... (See, inter alia, Also, f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/massforeurope.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/lombardionbenedictcontacts.html, + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/benedicthealthandbioethics.html, etc).

++ His successor, current Pope Francis, who has Chosen a Symbolic Name in reference to Saint Francis of Assisi, "Patron of Ecology" according to John-Paul II, including Natural Environment, Plants, Animals, etc, and Pleaded from the outset for a "profound respect for the entire Creation", as he stressed since the 1st week of his election, both to the Press and Ambassadors at the Vatican, (16 - 22 March 2013), making a landmark call "to pay special attention to the most Important issue of Respect for Human Life from the moment of Conception", in order "to guarantee Embryos' legal Protection, safeguarding everyz Human being from the very first moment of his or her existence", and inviting to join Vatican's relevant activities all "those who have at heart the Defence of the Sacred Nature of Human Life", when he made Also some Landmark Statements in favor of the UnBorn Children's Lives, after a Visit of a Symbolic Monument in South Korea ("Garden of Unborn Children"), on 2014.  just a few Days after he was handed a "1st Draft" on his forthcoming Encyclic on Environment : "Not an Easy issue", "Because (of) the Protection of Creation, and the ... Human Ecology", where he intends to "go to the Essence" of things, as he anounced at his Return Trip back from South Korea to the Vatican on August 18, Suddenly,  by a surprising, Tragic coincidence, a Deadly Incident, only a few Hours later, (overNight towards early Tuesday, August 19), in his Bithplace Argentina, brutaly Killed the Wife and two Children (a Baby aged just 8 Months and a 2 years old kid) of his deceased Brother's Son, Emmanuel Horacio Bergoglio, who was seriously injured and operated in a Hospital, after his car was crushed by a Heavy Truck, coming from "Cordoba" Region, where a Collective of People supported by the Local Christian Community etc. had just won the 1st part of a Legal Struggle against notorious USA Multinational Company "Monsanto"'s plan to start producing there some "Genetically Modified" Corn Seeds, whose GMOs were accused for Risks to eventually provoke "Cancers" and even "Genetic Mutations", "Abortions", etc. mainly against Pregnant Women and their Embryos, in an affair estimated up to 5 Billions $, (See, f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/peopleandbishopsonnaturalfamily.html, etc).

>>> And Nowadays, on 4 July 2021, Pope Francis, just after Exceptionaly sending his Vatican's "Prime Minister" (State Secretary) to the CoE in Strasbourg, Including on BioEthics, (See : Reply to "Eurofora"s Question at a Press Conference in : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/vaticanpmparolintoefonbioethicsandeurope.html, etc), at the Same Time that in a Landmark "Angelus" at Rome He Called to "be Open to Novelty, Open to God's Surprizes", even "when God may be Hidden in a Simple Man", as well as to "Please, doN't Forget to Pray for Me", and Announced a Forhcoming Visit to Hungary together with (a longer in) in Slovakia, the 1st on the occasion of the "International Eucharistic Congress", allowing to Meet with embattled Prime Minister Victor Orban, (a strong Defensor of Human Embryo against Genetic Manipulations, but currenly Attacked by a Part of EU Bureaucrats on a Law against Homosexual + TransSexual Propaganda to underage Children, making EU Commission Delay Recovery Funds, Needed also for Public Health Measures Saving Human Lives, After having Earlier Delayed even ...EU-Authorized Vaccines, Obliging Hungary to use Russian and Chinese Vaccines, which Helped spectacularly Restrict the Virus recently : See f.ex. at http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeslamsviruspassrisks.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/loiliberticideimpassesanitaire.html, etc).

+This was Added right in the Middle of a "Hot" Dispute with the Current Minority Government of the "Left" in Italy, on a Controversial Draft Law about Alleged "HomoPhobia", Threatening to Heavily Oppress mainly Christian Catholic and other People, in particular Private Schools Obliged to Study Homosexuality and Trens-Gender activities, Even to Organize Annual Days for their Promotion vis-a-vis Young underage Children, while Also it Risks to Impose Criminal Sanctions, including Long Prison Sentences for Years, on any Citizens who might dare Speak Against such Sexual Deviations of LGBT, (Recently Exploited by some Technocrats Pushing to Massive Artificial Procreations of Children by Labos, for Shady Interests).

That Controversial Italian Minority Government, (Opposed by a Clear Majority of Voters from the Right and the Center, according to All Polls, But Backed by a "Socialist" President and the Remnants of MPs of a "Left" whose Mandate was Artificialy Extended), reportedly Accused the Christian Catholic Church to seek to "Impose Laws by the Cardinals" (sic !), as Claimed the current Prime Minister Draghi, a former ECB Chair and Economist, (See unrelated Draghi's Statements to "Eurofora", f.ex. at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/ecbpresidentinterestedinbrics.html + .., etc), while, in Fact, Catholics (particularly in their Schools) mostly Protect Poor and/or Fragile People's Families with Children... And that Row Surfaced when some Newspapers Found and Published an initialy "Confidential Diplomatic Observation", Discreetly send by the Vatican's Foreign Minister, ArchiBishop Paul Gallagher, (who has Often Visited the CoE in Strasbourg : See his Statements also to "Eurofora" a.o., f.ex. at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coevaticanonhumanrightsuniversality.html, etc), Simply reminded a Legal Treaty between Rome and the Holy See Guaranteeing Respect of Democratic Freedoms and Human Rights, which Risked Now to be Curtailed in Vaticans' Private Schools and/or among its Officials if they Dared Speak Out agains Homosexuality and/or TranSexuality Propaganda vis a vis underage Children... In order to Bring that Row in its Real Proportions and Substance, Vatican's Prime Minister Parolin Explained that that the Only Part of that Controversial Draft Law which Worries the Holy See are its "Too Large" Descriptions of Statements or Measures that Risk to Face UnJustified and Excssive Oppression, (Comp. Supra) to the Detriment of Democratic Liberties (including Religious Ideas), Freedom of Speach, Family life, and Other Human Rights, (Despite the Fact that the Francis has been, Notoriusly, often Criticized for being Kind vis a vis LBGT Persons).

*** Unfortunately, it's in Such a particularly "Hot" Context that Pope Francis, a usualy solid man, was led to, Exceptionaly, Enter a Hospital, that same Sunday Evening of July 4, 2021, Initialy for a "Simple Endoscopy", reportedly due to Look at the eventual causes of a possible lenient Medical Issue, Hoping to Get Back to His Duties well Before the Next "Angelus" (of July 11). But, on the Contrary, He was, UnExpectedly, ...Operated, with a quite Heavy and Delicate Medical Intervention of Chirurgy, and, in Consequence, Kept Inside that Hospital much Longer than Expected, to the point that he was Obliged to speak for the Next "Angelus" from the Balcon of his Patient's Room, (the Same that Late John-Paul II had used in the Past),

reportedly Holding or Leaning Always on a Table or elsewhere, and Days Afterwards Circulating with Help or a Wheeling Chair... In the Meantime, an oscure Italian Journalist and, particularly, an American Religious Official, (notorious Electoral Backer of "Socialist" POTUS Biden, who had Imposed the Controversial "Same Sex Marriage" Together with Former POTUS Barack Hussein Obama in the Past, Both inside USA and Other Countries in the World, Recently Added to his own Moves in Favor of "Trans-Gender" Individuals, during the Latest, 2020 Conroversial US Elections, etc), was reported by the Establishment's "Washington Times", to have Pessimisticaly Claimed that Such Developments would Show that Pope Francis' era may have arrived Towards its "End" (sic !)... (See: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/jul/13/thomas-reese-pope-francis-papacy-final-phase/, etc).

    However, the above-Mentioned Controversial and Excessively Oppressive Italian Draft Law (Comp. Supra), after Barely "Surviving" a formal Vote to be "Postponed", (with Only 136 Votes Against 135 !), and Facing More than ...1.000 Amendments tabled by the Opposition, (which Holds a Large Majoriy of Voters among the Italian People, according to All Polls), was Finaly Droped by the Senate for Now, and Send to its Next Session, on Autumn, (when it reportedly May be Definitively Abandoned or Seriously Restricted)... [UPDATE 1] And, Meanwhile, Pope Francis spoke at the Next "Angelus" in the Vatican, Apparently Standing, Now, withOut any Help, Referring to "Saint Benedict, Patron of Europe", which, as he "Hope(s), May be United on its Founding Values", as he said After more than 16 Political Parties accross EU Member States, (including France, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Spain, Belgium, Austria, Finland, etc) notoriously Published a Joint Declaration, (Supported Also by Germans, Swedish, etc) on the occasion of the current EU's "Conference on Europe's Future" (2021-2022), Pointing at the "Judeo-Christian Roots of Europe", as well as at (Natural) "Family" values, (i.e. between a Man and a Woman, according Even to CoE's PanEuropean Convention on Human Rights, Article 12), etc., Including, for the 1st Time, not only Rightists, but Also former Long-Time Christian-Democrat/EPP Groups, that Might, Eventualy, be Later Joined even by the current EU Chair-in-office Slovenia, etc, [UPDATE 2]...

    + Almost at the Same Time, Pope Francis also just Published Full Details on his Forthcoming joint Trips to Hungary and (longer) Slovakia, during September 12-15, which reveals a  very Busy Agenda [UPDATE 3], while, in addition, Confirming his Wish to Visit, After a landmark Trip to Iraq, even the embattled and suffering Lebanon asap, (Comp., f.ex. : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/patriarchsakoorientceoonpopeiraqtrip.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/usaturkeyaddtoiranconcerninpopeiraqtrip.html, ...,  http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/maronitepatriarchraitoefonlebanoncrisis.html, etc)...

People in Europe and the World expect from CoE to make a succes of its "Monitoring" for Human Rights and Democracy, despite difficulties, said Finland's President Tarja Halonen to "EuroFora" at a crucial moment for the mecanism built 15 years ago by the paneuropean organization which celebrates its 60th Anniversary in 2009.

Halonen, known as "Mother" of CoE's "Monitoring" mecanism, a long-time MEP and former Foreign Minister before becoming Finland's President, holds a long experience in the mattter, after also serving twice as CoE and EU Chairwoman in the past. That's why she is well placed to judge how CoE's "monitoring" should deal today with some crucial issues of importance both to CoE and to the EU.

The move came just a Month before a crucial, last visit to Turkey, scheduled for June, by the President of CoE''s "Monitoring" Committee, Ukranian MEP Serge Holovaty, to finalize his Report on Ankara, the CoE Member State with the longest Monitoring procedure. From its results depends its overall credibility.

This is a Test-case, because, in fact, it's in order to avoid Sanctions threatened against Turkey by a CoE's Assembly's April 1995 Resolution for grave Human Rights violations, Democracy gaps, the continuing Military Occupation in Cyprus, the unresolved Kurdish problem, Aegean differend with Greece, etc., that MEPs decided to create, for the 1st time on April 1996, a "Monitoring" proces, allegedly destinated to check, without excluding Countries who did not fulfill all CoE's standards.

In the Past, the obliged withdrawal of Greece's Military regime and of its "Civil" cover-up out of the CoE had helped bring back Democracy in 1974. But, on the contrary, since April 1996, the idea was to "monitor" Human Rights' respect while keeping most concerned Countries inside the CoE. After Turkey's oldest example, this was extended also to several former "Eastern" European Countries, even if CoE's Assembly has imposed to some of them (fex. Ukraine, Russia, etc., after Belarus, Serbia, etc) various "Sanctions", that Ankara always avoided. Curiously more succesful even than .. USA itself, (a CoE "Observer" since 1995), which has been at least threatened with sanctions some years ago..

EU-effects of CoE's Monitoring process became obvious between 2001-2008, since the "closure" of this procedure, when CoE felt that a Country had met most of its Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law obligations, (i.e. the "Copenhagen Criteria" for the EU), helped trigger Negotiations with the EU for "Accession" or other closer relations : This occured already before the 2004 and 2007 EU Enlargements to former "Eastern" European Countries, as well as for the commencement of "accession" negotiations with Croatia, and of "open-ended" negotiations with Turkey in 2005.

    But a stricking new development are Holovaty's recent findings that on core Human Rights issues as Torture and Freedom of Expression, Turkey, even "5 Years after" CoE closed its "Monitoring", back in 2004, inciting EU to start accession Negotiations in 2005, still presents grave problems.

    His findings are of crucial importance after a 2008 CoE Resolution called, "if need be", to "seriously consider the possibility of Re-Opening the Monitoring procedure for Turkey" : A move which might affect Ankara's controversial EU bid, since EU Accession Negotiations are based on the Hypothesis that the Candidate fullfils the "Copenhagen Criteria" (See above)..
-------------------------
    Holovaty expressed his will to check  "Matters still Outstanding" and  those that he "didn't have an opportunity to discuss" at an earlier visit this year, "in order to discuss the more complex issues in greater depth", at his forthcoming New Visit to Ankara, before the December 2009 EU Summit.  This is all based on the 2004 CoE Resolution which stresses that, CoE "will continue.. post-monitoring Dialogue with the Turkish authorities,...in addition to a 12-points list,..and on any Other Matter that might arise in connection with Turkey’s Obligations as a CoE member state".

    CoE's Resolution also asks  from Turkey "to secure the proper Implementation of Judgements, particularly in the Cyprus v. Turkey InterState case", of 2001, which concerns also the plight of many Hundreds of MISSING People. It adds Turkey's obligations to "execute" ECHR's Judgements in the Loizidou case,..and in particular adopt General Measures to avoid repetition or continuation of Violations found by the Court" to the detriment of Refugees.

    Nevertheless, Holovaty said to "EuroFora" that "MISSING" persons,"might be included" and cannot be excluded, but he has yet to examine the situation "to find out  which issues will be raised" to the Turkish Government.

    Therefore, "EuroFora" asked Halonen, as the Historic "Mother" of CoE's Monitoring mecanism, if she thought that, "whenever there are grave Human Rights Violations, as fex. "MISSING" persons, attested even by ECHR's judgements, they should be always checked by a Monitoring process. Or could they be forgotten ?"
    
     - "We (CoE) must be, at the same time, Fair, Realistic, but not in the mind that "now we have Forgotten", etc., replied to "EuroFora"'s question Halonen, speaking as a matter of general principle.

    - "When we think of those People that are suffering from the lack of Democracy, of Human Rights, and of the Rule of Law", "we should find a base on how to deal with the (Monitoring) system more rapidly"', she stressed.

    - "Sometimes it's very difficult to combine Transparency and Effectivenes together, particularly in this specific case", she went on to say. But, "I have not found a (CoE Member) Country who could be insensitive in this sens", Halonen answered concerning grave Human Rights violations attested by the ECHR.

    - "I have no ready-made answer. I have the expectations that you, in the CoE, will, step by step, find the different types of the monitoring systems."

    Also "because this is a part of the UN's Post-Conflict system, (fex. when it comes to Cyprus' MISSING persons), and it's a more Global system". So that, "If we make a succes in Europe, the others will follow", throughout the World.  "But they expect that we (Europe) are this opportunity, this Opportunity to make a Succes", Halonen concluded.

    In addition, she advised to extend CoE's Monitoring to all its 47 Member States, "because, as long as we hear that, all these monitoring systems are "OK for the neighbor, but not for me", "it's very difficult" to understand. Something which could make easier to Compare...

    Finnish MEP Jaako Laakso, former CoE Rapporteur on the Occupied Territories of Cyprus and one of the 5 Signatories of the Historic CoE's call to create the "MONITORING" mecanism since 1996, was more specific :  - "We (CoE Assembly) have to find a way for the issue of Cyprus' MISSING People to be better followed", he stressed, anouncing his intention to "speak to Mr. Holovaty" about that. "There might be also other ways", added Laakso.

    - The 2008 "Year had been a very Bad one for Turkey with regard to Human Rights in general, and Freedom of Expression in particular", denounced, meanwhile, Holovaty's preliminary Post-Monitoringh Draft Report by Holovaty, published by the CoE on April 2009.

    "Amnesty International believes that freedom of expression is not guaranteed given the various articles of the Criminal Code that restrict it. .. "For example, 1,300 Websites are said to have been closed down by the (Turkish) authorities in 2008" ! While "the new Turkish Criminal Code was used to bring a total of 1,072 proceedings between June 2005 and April 2008, and led to the conviction of 192 people", for expressing views. "Representatives of the Özgür Gündem newspaper, which specialises in Kurdish affairs, ..complained about Numerous Attacks on their Freedom of Expression ...as was everyone who advocated a settlement to the question by means other than the intervention of the army" "According to their figures, 19 Newspapers had been suspended 43 times between 4 August 2006 and 4 November 2008" !...

    Moreover, on 2008,  CoE's "Ministers adopted its 4rth Resolution on the execution of the judgments of the ECHR, ...and outstanding issues regarding 175 Judgements and decisions relating to Turkey delivered between 1996 and 2008...  concerning Deaths resulting from the excessive use of force by members of the Security forces, the failure to protect the right to life, the DIisappearance and/or death of individuals, Ill-Treatment and the Destruction of property". CoE's " Ministers urged the Turkish authorities ...to ensure that members of Security forces of all ranks can be prosecuted without administrative
authorisation" for "serious crimes". Holovaty reminded.

"Nonetheless", Holovaty heard anew of "Several cases of Violence committed last year (2008) by the (Turkish) security forces". Amnesty International speaks of Many Cases of ill-treatment and Torture in the prisons and by the police". "Including, fex."'the death of Engin Ceber, a young man of 29 who died on October 2008 as a result of the TORTURE allegedly inflicted on him by police officers, prison staff and members of the gendarmerie. He was part of a group of people arrested on September 2008 during a demonstration and Press Conference in Istanbul'. Proceedings against suspects are "on-going" in this case.

- " I therefore noted an Obvious Contradiction between the Government’s stated “zero tolerance” policy.... of Torture and other forms of ill-treatment, and the different testimonies given", denounced CoE's Rapporteur.  Turkish "authorities must make considerable efforts to guarantee that proper investigations are carried out into allegations of abuses by members of the security forces and that perpetrators are effectively punished" "In this respect, I have requested detailed Statistics on the number of Investigations, acquittals and convictions in cases involving allegations of abuse in order to show the positive impact of the measures taken to date", Holovaty said, repeating a permanently unsatisfied CoE's demand to Turkey since a Decade...

    - "The Political Crisis that shook the country in the spring of 2008 highlighted the Weaknesses of the (Turkish) Constitution", which comes from the Military regime of 1982, "and the Urgent Need of Reforms", stressed from the outset CoE's Rapporteur in 2009. In particular, "the ...Democratic functioning of state institutions, including the independence of the judicial system, are crucial", he observes.

    But, "the Electoral  system and the ways in which it is circumvented do not appear to give those elected complete Legitimacy, and tend to pervert the course of direct universal suffrage", denounces Holovaty, observing that, even 5 Years later, Turkey did not yet change the 10% nationwide Threshold for a party to take any seat, which is "far higher" than the "3%" maximum in Europe and already condemned as contrary to European Standards by the CoE.

    + Moreover, EU Parliament's 2009 Report on Turkey, drafted by Dutch MEP Ria Oomen-Ruijten and adopted in Strasbourg on March, expresses "Concern over the Failure of the (Turkish) Judiciary to prosecute cases of Torture and Ill-treatment, the Number of which is Growing". EU also "is concerned about continuing Hostility and Violence against Minorities" in Turkey. It also "calls on the Turkish Government to launch, as a matter of Priority, a Political Initiatve favouring a lasting Settlement of the Kurdish issue, (while "condemning violence.. and terrorist groups"). EU "regrets that No progress has been made on establishing full, systematic Civilian suprevisory functions over the (Turkish) Military".

    The final results of Holovaty's 2nd and last visit to Turkley will be known later this year, and, at any case, before EU's December 2009 Summit.
