*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- New Facts, which surfaced in Strasbourg, on the Sidelines of EU Parliament's full Plenary Session this week, and while "Hot" Political Negotiations unfolding in Germany on a New Government Coalition have reached a Crucial stage,


clearly indicate that, if they yielded to "Greens"' Controversial Demands for even More Irregular Migrants to Follow that UnPrecedented Big "Tsunami" of 1,5 Million Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants which Suddenly Entered in Europe mainly via Turkish Smugglers on 2015-2016,


then, EU's current Competences on Migration Policy, Risk to come, sooner or later, to a full End, in the foreseeable Future.


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


Indeed, France's Biggest Opposition Party in the National Assembly, (which also holds a Majority in the Senate, and among Regions), that of the "Republicans", members of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group, the Biggest in Europe, Welcomed Yesterday in Strasbourg the obvious Frontrunner Candidate to their Presidency, (due to be Elected on December 2017), Laurent Wauquiez, who made certain Relevant Declarations :

- In particular, Revealing in Strasbourg one of the Main Reasons for which he finds Necessary to Put a Stop, as things stand Today, to any EU Competence on Foreign Migration policy, and bring it Back to its Member States, (Except for a Revised "Shenghen" system for EU Citizens), he Clearly Explained that this is due also to alleged "Different Situations in Germany and in France" :


- F.ex., concerning the Workforce's future, some in Germany push for even More Foreign Migration, while we, in France, can augment the Population by more Births inside the Country, he observed, in a well-Applauded Speech to the Militants of the Party, and after a Press-point with Journalists, including "Eurofora", (See also : ....).


Significantly, Wauquiez, (who Speaks German, as he Demonstrated here by Inviting a German Collegue at the Press-point to raise his Question "in Deutsch", Replying in the German Language), is an Experienced former Minister for European affairs, and, Afterwards, for Universities/Scientific Research, as well as f. Government Spokesman, (Comp. Various Replies that he has given, then, to "Eurofora"s Topical Questions, f.ex., at : ... + ..., etc).


+ Moreover, he said that just After having held a Meeting with EPP MEPs in EU Parliament, where he met also with the President of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party, Joseph Daul, in addition to a Fast-track Round Trip even to Neighbouring Germany's Regional Headquarters at Stuttgart, (as "Eurofora" learned by well informed "Republican" Party sources), Capital of the Federated State of Baden-Württenberg, where a Coalition between Chancellor Angie Merkel's ChristianDemocrat/CDU and the local "Greens" of Chairman Kretschmann has already started to Govern recently, (See, f.ex. : ...).


Meanwhile, preparations and Political Debates about Strategis to follow in the Forthcoming European Elections of May 2019 (of Crucial Importance for Europe's Present and Future), are Already Starting, Nowadays, Both inside EU Parliament, and in Key Member States, as, f.ex., in France, etc., (before the Next Presidential Elections, normally scheduled for 2022).


>>> And this came Precisely while Delicate Negotiations in Berlin, for a New Government's Coalition, were, reportedly, Threatened by certain Stumbling Blocks, particularly Because of a Controversial Demand of "Greens"' representatives, who Ask for Even More Irregular Migrants to Enter inside the EU, even if they are Not Refugees at all, Neither their Family, but Only if one or another among their Parents might have managed to Enter in Germany during since the 2015-2016 Giant "Tsunami" of More than +1,5 Millions of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants' Sudden, UnPrecedented Influx via Turkey, and/or Afterwards.

Already, BEFORE that +1,5 Millions "Tsunami" of 2015-2016, according to OECD Data, More than 400.000 People had entered inside the EU, just in 1 Year (2015), by Legal means, through such a "Window". Therefore, both the GeoPoliticaly Exposed Bavarian "CSU" Party, Traditionally Close Ally to Merkel's CDU, and/or Various Other German Politicians, Experts, and/or other interested/affected People, Naturally Warn that the relevant Numbers, AFTER that 2015-216 UnPrecedented Big "Tsunami" of Massive Migration through Turkey, risks to be even Much Bigger : Logically, CSU estimates reportedly are up to 750.000 more !...


- Astonishingly, However, those "Greens" and/or other relevant intermediaries, reportedly Claimed, during the above-mentioned Negotiations in Berlin, that the above-mentioned Number of Additional (Non-Refugee) Migrants (to Add to all other kinds of Migrants), would be just around 30.000 or 60.000 per Year, according to them... Something that pushed various Mainstream German Medias (including "Die Welt" and others) to Warn about several ... "FAKE NUMBERS" on Migrants currently circulating around those Crucial Berlin Negotiations for an eventual "Jamaica" Coalition for a New Government, with Big "Power" Games being played there by some...

+ And an Additional, Important Fact, at this Point, Nowadays, is that, Contrary to what Europe had Already Experienced in its Long History in the Past, Too Many among that UnPrecedented, Sudden "Tsunami" of 1,5 Millions of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants imported in Europe mainly by Turkish Smugglers on 2015-2016, (and, reportedly, systematically..."Selected", with Socio-Cultural, Religious and/or Education level counter-Criteria by the Turkish Authorities, according to an EU Experts' Report leaked in Brussels and Published by many Mainstream Medias in Germany and elsewhere on 2016), look very Different from all Other, previously Known Migrants :

F.ex. being too largely Non-Europeans, Nor Christians (a notoriously Oppressed Minority around several Middle-East Countries, which is, Curiously, Under-Represented among those so-called "Refugees", Despite even ISIL's and other Islamist Terrorists' Brutal Aggressions there, etc), Don't speak at all any European Language, many Do Not seem to really wish to "Integrate" the Host European Societies and Culture, most are Heavily "Islamized" (if not Radicalized), some Brutaly Aggressive, among whom is notoriously Hidden even an unknown Number of former Deadly Islamist Terrorists' members or fans, etc.

So that these "Integration Problems", exceptionaly Risk to become much more Difficult and Worse than what Europe had witnessed in the Past, (as even a ... Swedish, "Socialist", CoE's Expert, with Experience in Human Rights/Democracy, etc., has Acknowledged to "Eurofora" in Strasbourg).


And, Meanwhile, various relavant Popular Reactions from European Union Citizens are notoriously Growing, Both from recent Security Risks (after an Extending Number of Deadly Attacks by Islamist Terrorists cowardly Targetting innocent Civilian People, throughout all Europe, including Many Times inside Germany and France, etc), and Social Cohesion Problems, (particularly Felt by Poor People, obliged to live their Private and Family Everyday Lives in some Poor or Impoverised Neighborhoods, recently threatened to be transformed in Cultural a.o. "Gettos", since they are Affected much more by that kind of "New" Mass Migration through Turkey a.o., which, in Fact, makes Life more Difficult also for Other, Older Immigrants, from various Different Origins and Pathways to Europe, who were, Comparatively, Less Difficult to Integrate : F.ex. in Schools, Housing behavior, etc).


+ In Addition, the Number of MPs Democratically Elected by the European People recently, (particularly in Germany, but also in France and in Other EU Countries), have Already Reached (or Approach) a Net Majority very Critical against such an uncontrolled and persisting Massive Immigration of this kind, (which, by the way, has also Nothing to do with the Average Population even of Syria itself, which appears very Different from what some Turkish a.o. Smugglers curiously chose to import in Europe suddenly on 2015-2016+)...

_____________________


Moreover, when Opposition's New Party of the "Alternative (Rightists) has, reportedly, just presented a Proposal, in the Bundestag in Berlin, for a planned Return Back to Syria of about 500.000 Irregular Migrants who are Not real Refugees, Now that the War has been Declared almost Finished, (on Condition that it occurs in Safe Areas, and Free of Charge, with Amnesty for those who Deserted the Army, etc), as Mainstream Newspapers published in Germany, the overall Difference between Opposed Political Choices on the Overall Number of such Irregular Migrants apparently Jumped (500.000 + 400.000, etc) up to almost .. 1 Million (or more : Comp. Supra) during a year, in Germany alone : I.e. a quite Different Germany and Europe, according to People's choices !


Meanwhile, concerning the above-mentioned Claim about alleged Needs for the Workforce in the foreseeable Future, (Comp. Supra), the Numbers which had been Published by the JHA Minister De Mezières, just a few Years ago, had Revealed that, in Fact, the Intra-European Migrants were Becoming the Biggest Group of Foreign Workers in German, bypassing Both the Turks and any Other Group from 3rd Countries : Isn't that Enough, and (particularly) much Better (f.ex. from the Triple point of view of Security, Productive Capacities, and Socio-Cultural Integration ?


Or, perhaps, some might, eventually, push Massively for Jobs withOut Any Qualification, Reduced in a few repetitive, simplistic moves that Anybody could do, so that they would result in Too Low-Paying occupations, and/or in so Harsh Conditions, that even most Poor Europeans would Not Accept, so that there would be a Need for Desperate and Ignorant Masses of Non-European, Foreign Migrants to be practically Obliged to Accep that. But, If that might be, or become the case, then, the obvious Question Raised, is of Fundamental Importance :  - "What kind of Europe should be Built for the Future ?"

 

-------------------------
 

And, as Laurent Wauquiez repeatedly Warned, on the occasion of his Visit to Strasbourg, yesterday, (Both in an Interview to "Figaro" Newpaper in Paris, and in 2 Press-points here, as well as in a Long Speech to a Public Meeting of ChristianDeocrat/EPP Militants of his "Republican" Party : the same as that of former French Presidents Nicolas Sarkozy, Jacques Chirac and of the General de Gaulle, as he reminded, while Confirming to "Eurofora" that he is "for a Strong France, inside a Strong Europe") :


- In order "to Build Europe", we "canNot Ignore the Will of the People !"...

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.

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
