*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- An embattled but apparently reVigorated French President Emmanuel Macron, just After Facing even Personaly a Virus' Infection, that he Succeeded to Overcome, Becoming Naturaly Immune, Urged Today to "Look to the Future", foreseeing a "New French Morning", and a "European ReNaissance", Starting by somewhere through 2021, towards a "2030" Horizon "to Build".

- "That's where We are Heading", he Stressed, Launching a Call to "the "People" to be "United, with Solidarity, Proud of our History, its Values and its Culture, Trusting in Future and Progress, Sure of its Talent, Energy and Ambition, Whatever it happens, Let's Be Proud. Proud to be "Us", the Young Franco-European Leader Ambitiously Concluded.

- "We must Not Add to the Cost of the (Pandemic Virus) Crisis, Even a Lack of Action", he Warned. On the Contrary, "we Must Continue to Act, Transform, Advance ahead, ... by Fighting against the Virus, by Fighting against its Economic and Social Consequences", in order to "Build" the Future, Macron Highlighted.

- "Hope is Alive in the Freedom that we shall Find Anew, in the Strength of Our Culture, ...even in the Lessons that we'll get From this Crisis, for More Simplicity, Efficiency, and, sometimes, Just Common Sense", he Soberly pointed out.

- Indeed, "Hope is Here, Growing Every Day, in this (Socio-Economic) ReLaunch, which is Already Sparking", "and Will Allow, from the Spring (2021), to Invent a Stronger Economy, Both Creating Jobs, and More Innovative, more Respectful of Climate, BioDiversity, as well as of Solidarity", he promised.

- Meanwhile, speaking of "Vaccines", he Vowed to be, "Fully Determined", "to Not Let Anyone Play with the Safety and Good Conditions, in which Vaccinations must take place, With Our Scientists and Medical Doctors", as he Ensured the People, (Despite Hasty Moves by some USA and EU Agencies, who recently Rushed to Grasp some Controversial First-Commers, among Many and Various Kinds of Vaccines currently in Preparation, withOut having Even Discussed, Previously, some Probable New Questions of Crucial Importane for People's Health and for the Society at large, as "Eurofora" Warned Twice, with Concrete Facts and Arguments : See ... + ..., etc).

+ But "I will Not Let, an UnJustified Delay to be imposed for Bad Reasons, No More", he Added, Promissing that "Everyone who Wishes to become Vaccinated, must be Able to do so", "with Certainty, and in a Good Order, Starting by those Who Face More Risks", (i.e. Medical Staff, Elders and Other Fragile People, etc).

- "Already", we "crossed this Year (2020) with Unity and Resilience, to which Nothing Resists". Despite "these Hard Times", We "were Able to Innnovate, Invent", and "be Generous", so that "Everything becomes Possible", he Optimisticaly encouraged. So that, "in 2021, whatever happens, We Shall Know how to Face the (various) Crisis : Sanitary, Socio-Economic, Terrorist, Climate's", etc., "which are Not going to Disappear just after the January 1st..." he Warned. On the Contrary, "the First Months of this Yeart Will be Didfficult, and the Epidemic will Still Hamper a Lot against our Social Life", Macron soberly Warned.

-è But, "in 2021, whatever happens, We shall Also Know how to Face the Challenges to come, Because we have been Prepared for that" : F.ex.,

(1) "the Ecological Transition and Protection of the BioDiversity, by applying Proposals of the <<Citizens' Convention>>", (an Original Participatory Attempt, Recently set up in France), "and Other Reforms";

(2) "The Fight for the Republic and Our Values, the Secular society, Brotherhood, More Security";

(3) "Advance in our Commitment for Merit, Work, Equality of Chances, Fight Against All InEqualities and Dicriminations".

- "The Trials that we Faced, Might have Reduced our Enthousiasm, Limit Hope. But this is Not the case !" On the Contrary, "Hope is here", he Voluntaristicaly stressed.

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

    But, Unfortunately, Some Technocrats seem to have Lied, at least on 1 Important Point, to the Young President of France, by Hiding him the Truth...

    Because he was led to go on Believing that - "Hope is in this Vaccine, that the Human Genius made in Only 1 Year", while "this was UnThinkable, some Months Ago !".

    However, the Truth is that "Pfizer"'s Turkish Fake-"Vaccine", is Not Really a "Vaccine", (But anOther Kind of Novel Medical Tool), Since,

- Even if it Might, Perhaps, Leave the Individuals who Receive it, withOut Symptoms of the Virus, (at least for a 3 Months-Long Period, since, as things stand Nowadays, it canNot Yet Guarantee a Longer Protection Time, for the moment),

- >>> Nevertheless, there is Not Yet Any Guarantee at all, concerning the Open Still Question : Whether it Might, or Not, Stop the Spreading of the Virus vis a vis All the Other People in the Society !

    Because, in Fact, due to the Novel, Particular Technology used here, (via m-ARN Manipulation, inside the Human Genome, Artificialy Triggering the Production of a Key Protein), Nothing is Yet Known about What Might Happen regarding all the Other People, who could be Contacted, Afterwards, by the Recipient...

=> In Consequence, this Might, Even, ...Aggravate the Spread of Virus' Infections in a Society, Because the Recipents may Refuse any "Quarantine", since they are Asymptomatic, and, in Addition, all the Other People may be "Blind" or UnWare of this Threat Against their own Health and Life, as long as Nobody Knows Yet about the Danger that those Recipients might Still Present to the Society in a kind of "Stealth" or "Covert" way !

    "Eurofora" has Clearly Warned, (Oraly at 2 EU Press Encounters, and by Web-Published Articles Twice : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/pfijfyjhjh.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/fdaandcontroversialvirusvaccines.html, etc), what Some Others had Just Vaguely and Briefly Evoked, (including "Los Angeles Times", "the Guardian", "AP", "Naftemporiki.gr", "FDA"s Documents in the "Pfizer"/Turkish case, etc). And this kind of "New Problem", UnPrecedented in Real Vaccine's History, (to the point to be UnConceivable by Un-Warned People !), has just Started to be aNew Observed, (particularly Disguised under a Confusing Vocabulary around "Asymptomatic" Individuals, etc., But sometimes even Directly), somehow Better in "FDA"'s more Recent Documents on "Moderna"s Armenian Similar Pseudo-"Vaccine", (But Still InSufficiently visible), as well as more or less Mentioned, Briefly, in Various Other Short Publications, (f.ex. on Israel : See "Breitbart", or by "Statista" Web-News, etc).

    => In Consequence, a Great Precaution is due in Dealing with so UnCertain, still, Novel Issues, of UnKnown Yet Dimension, Instead of Misleading a Leader with Grossly Inacurate or False Impressions, as Someone seems to have Scandalously done here, apparently Abusing of the Trust of the Young French President, (despite of his intelligence)...

    These Facts do Not Exclude at all the, Otherwise, great Importance of Macron's General Statements, (Comp. Supra and Infra), But "Eurofora", by Journalistic Deontology and simple Human and Social Obligation, including by Respect to the French President himself, had the Duty to simply Say the Truth, in a so Serious matter for People's Health and Lives.

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

    + More Convincing, Macron Innovated, in his Speech, by Describing 10 Original Stories of Simple People, who followed various "Exemplary Pathways", serving as "Compass for Future Times", "Revealed by the Epidemic" of Deadly Virus :

- Calling Each one by their Names, from a Young Nurse, eager to Serve face the Urgencies, to a Cleaning Lory Driver working round the ckock at far away Guyane, or an SME Businessman rapidly ReConverting his Factory in order to meet a Fast Growing Demand for Protective Masks, a Kid Giving his Tablet in order to Help Isolated Elder People Communicate with their Family and Friends, (making Many Followers), a Book-Keeper "Innovating" with Internet Networks in order to Succesfully reach her Clients, added to a Policeman atruggling, at a Rural area, to Urgently Save the Lives of 70 Elder People from the an Inundated Facility, added to his Collegues who Stopped a Terrorist Attack against a Church, and to 3 Other Policemen Killed while Trying to Help a Woman Victim of Aggressive Violence, as well as another 3 Soldiers Killed during an Operation at Africa's Mali : all Named "National Heroes", But Also a Foreign Origin Professor seeking advice from his French Collegues on how to Speak to his Pupils about "Secular" Society's Values, just After the Horrible Murder of Samuel Patty by a Coward Islamist Terrorist, (in the "Mohamed Cartoons" and "Free Speach" row), in order to Help Raise Young Republicans, added to a Woman Football Player, Leading her Team to Win a Champions' 1st Prize, in the middle of Obstacles for Training and Empty Stadiums, Concluding by that 78 Years Old Woman, Isolated at a Care Facility, who Dared become the 1st French to take a (Controversial : Comp. Supra) "Vaccine" against the Virus, giving "a Message of Hope" this year, (etc),

    => Emmanuel Macron Found a Rock-Solid Ground among those Brave, simple French People, those "Thousands of Anonymous" actors, Looking "like Your Sister, Your Neighbour, Your Friends", and Many Others who, "Committed, and with Solidarity, Supported Our Country during this Harsh Trial", as he stressed. "Everything is Possible for a People Able, during those Difficult Times, of such Innovation, Inventivity, Generosity"...

    Such a Voluntaristicaly Optimist Tone by the Young French President, in his New Year's Eve Speech, Significantly, comes After China has Notoriously Won the Fight against the Virus Earlier, throughout that Huge, 1,3 Billions People - Strong Country, Even WithOut Any "Miraculous" Pseudo-"Vaccine", Neither Any Novel "Drug" Yet , Nor a "Dr. Fauci", etc., But just a Strong, Conscious and Motivated Socio-Political Will                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       to Fight all Together for Humanity's Survival facing an imminent Deadly Threat... Not that a Good and Efficient High-Tech might not be needed, (in fact it Does, a Lot), But rather Because it Must be Always Guided by Human Consience, Forged in a consequent, Collective Fight, and  Free Public Topical Debates, Stimulating the Best Collective Intelligence, that France and all Europe are Able to offer..., (as "Eurofora" had Already a Chance to Evoke with President Macron, at Various Occasions, including with the Nearby Vosges Mountains' Oxygen, when, just After a Landmark Speech at EU Parliament, he had Officialy Launched the so-called "European Citizens' Public Consultations"' 1st Attempt, Comp., f.ex., at : ..., etc).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

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

    - However, at any case, "This (Last) Year 2020 canNot be Resumed Only in that Epidemic, Even if it Changed our Lives", Macron observed. Because, Despite such Big Challenges, "We managed to conduct the Necessary Transformations, and Strengthen our Credibility", as well as "convince Germany, and Afterwards the Other EU Member Countries, to conceive a(n EU) Relaunch Plan, Unique and Masssive, and Decide a Joint Debt with Solidarity, in order to Better Prepare Our (EU's) Future, by a Commitment to Ecologic and Digital Transitions, as well as by Creating the Greatest Possible Number of Jobs for Our Youth", he Reminded, (Obviously speaking of the July 2020 EU Brussel's -Longest Ever- Summit : See at: .... + ... +...., etc).

    - "That's what We have Built in 2020", he stressed. Because, "Our Destiny is, First of all, in Europe !". Naturaly, "Our Sovereignity is National, and I'll do everything in order to Find anew the Control over our Destiny and Lives", he Vowed. "But, Our (France's) Sovereignity goes, Also, Through a Stronger Europe, More Autonomous, More United", Macron clearly stressed.

    + Regardless of that, meanwhile, "ToNight, for the 1st Time, a Country : the UK, will Leave the EU", he noted. Indeed, "We (the EU) have Agreed, some Days Ago, a Deal, in order to Organize our Future Relations with it (the UK), by Defending Our Interests, Our Industries, Our Fishermen, and Our European Unity", as he said.

    => However, "the UK Remains Our Neighbour, But Also Our Friend, and Our Ally !", the French President clearly underlined. In Fact, "that Choice, to Leave Europe, that "BREXIT", was Born out of a European Ill-Feeling, with Many Lies, and False Promisses", he Criticized. (On this Occasion : See Anew "Eurofora"s Original Overview and NewsReport Published at the Moment of that 2016 British Referendum on Brexit, where, We Point at Surprizing Facts Showing that, most Probably, the Real Aspirations of a Majority of British People were Not Against Europe, But, rather, in Favour of a -Not Achieved Yet- Real Europe ! Comp. at : ...).

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

    - "Concerning the Last Year, "2020", "Yes", it's True that "this Year Was Hard : It Reminded Our Vulnerabilities", he Acnowledged, meanwhile, Macron, (while All Europe, UK and even Russia Included, have Notoriously Become the ...Epicenter of that Pandemic Crisis, since March 2020)...                                                                                                                                 

    - However, things "were Even More UnJust for the Most Fragile People", he Regreted. Indeed, "I Think at All those Fellow Citizens, who live in Precarious Situations, Sometimes in Poverty, for whom the Crisis that we are crossing makes EveryDay Lives Even More Difficult", Macron acknowledged.

    >>> - "But, Together, We Manage Better United, and have Learned a lot". Indeed; "We are Grateful to those who have been Mobilized in order to Take Care, Feed, Educate, Protect, All those who, by their Work, their Commitment, Allowed us to Stand at Our Feet, and Together, during those Difficult Months, and who do the Same thing Even ToNight" : i.e. "Our Fellow Citizens Working in the Sectors of Culture, Sport, Restoration, Hôtels, Events, or suffering Students, Affected even More than others : I Want to Tell them that We'll Be There, Naturaly in order to Help them Get Out of this Situation, the Soonest", "and in order to Allow them to Hold on, during that Period, so Hard and UnJust for them, where we ask them to Work Differently, and Sometimes, Even to Renounce to their Activities", he Regretted....

    >>> However, "this Historic Test has Also Revealed Our Solidity : " Indeed, "Despite that Pandemic, We have Never Renounced to pursue Our Ambition of Progress for Everyone", inter alia, also, f.ex., "by Lowering Taxes, by Opening New Rights, (like the Leave for those who Help Others, the Prolongation of Paternity Leave), by Supporting them with Subsidies, by ReConverting our Cars parc, by Opening "French Services Houses" throughout the Territories, by Investing in Our Sovereignity and Our Research in an Historic way, by striving to Produce More inside France and (all) Europe", etc. While "Our Care-Takers (Medical Staff) have Not Only Coped, Butwe have Also Engaged a Transformation in Depth, with Historic Investments, For our Health, whose Pertinence Will be Revealed During the Next few Years". In fact, "We are among those who have Most Intervened in order to Protect and accompagny the Young People, the Workers, the Businessmen", etc. And "I assume that "WhatEver it Might Cost", Because it has Allowed to Save Lives, and Protect Jobs", Macron ensured.

    + Nowadays, "We have to Build Together those Replies which Will Allow to Avoid any Heavy Burden for the Future Generations", he Warned, however.

    - But, "Today, it's Not a December 31st As All Others... There, where, in Our Cities and Villages, this Hour is Usually for Large Gatherings", on the Contrary, "this Year, they are Prohibited by the Epidemic : Our Communal Squares are withOut Lights, our Housholds Less Cheerfull than usual", and "the Year 2020 Ends, therefore, as it had Started : By Efforts and Restrictions. And I'm fully Aware of the Sacrifices that I Asked You to do, by the Decisions that I Had to take..." Also, in the Name of All the People, "let's Think, ToNight, at those 64.000 Victims of the Virus" (in France alone), "their Families and Friends : Parents, Friends, integral Parts of the French Imaginary (f.ex. Artists, Writers, Top Politicians, Athlets, etc), have Left away, these Last Months", he regretted.

     - Nevertheless, President Macron "Thanked" the People "for Your Civic Sens" and "that Spirit of Collective Responsibility, thanks to which We have Saved a Lot of (other) Lives, and which Allows us, Nowadays, to Hold Better than many others, in Front of the Epidemic" as he said.

    - So that, Now, "Together, United, Let's Look Ahead of us, Look towards the Future", in order "to Prepare, Today, that Spring of 2021", (Comp. Supra), so that "2021 Becomes a Happy and Useful Year", Macron Invited in Conclusion.

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.
