*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- The Revelation of the 1st Big Scandal of a "Bogus" Fake-Study Against HCQ+ Medicine versus the Deadly Virus, Alias Known also as "LANCET-GATE", (See: ..., etc), Even if Acknowledged also by the WHO itself, which Notoriously Restored that Drug, did Not Disarm its Opponents...

On the Contrary, Most of them, Multiplied sly and/or Open Attacks, Abusing of various Similar, or slightly Different "Bogus" Fake and/or, in fact, Irrelevant "Reports", Sometimes even ...Older than the 1st one, in Relentless Attempts to provoke Negative False Impressions, Trigger one or anOther Erroneous and/or Excessive, UnJustified Reaction against HCQ+, at Any Price, even by EnDangering or Sacrificing their own Credibility.

To the point that, sometimes, even Positive Official Confirmations of the Fact that HCQ+ could be freely Prescribed by Doctors to their Patients, during the Fight Against the Virus, if they found that appropriate, (See Infra), were, in fact, Presented, on the Contrary, as a kind of..."Sanction", Focusing f.ex. on the controversial Suppression of a possibility to administer that Drug in Serious Cases of Advanced Infections, while, it's well Known that it's Only towards the Beginning that it's more Efficient...

While People are still Dying, Every Day, by that Virus, for which not any other satisfactory Cure or Vaccine has been Found yet until Nowadays, such a Behavior, by some, inevitably leaves Big Question Marks about what they might be really searching to provoke or impose, those who don't hesitate to try to Block the Only Glimpse of Hope currently available, even withOut any Serious Argument at their disposal, but, on the Contrary, Most of the times, Scandalously Manipulating and/or MisRepresenting the real Facts !

Here, we shall see a Series of Critical, Factual Analysis of such Controversial and Negative Claims, which are Proven to be more or less Arbitrary, Irrelevant, and/or Excessively Exagerated, sometimes unbelievably Flawn, totaly "Bogus" and/or UnReliable...

Something which, curiously, does not hinder, nevertheless, those who Attempt to Exploit one after another "Bogus" Fake-Study, to Persist, Again and Again, in a Tragi-Comic "Rain" of Balderdash, as if several Establishment's Medias have gone "Ga-Ga" against HCQ+ at Any Price (See Infra) !


=> Among Others, f.ex. :

- The Same Days (June 3) that a 1st "Bogus" Fake-Study (of 22.5.2020), Against HCQ+, was notoriously "Retracted" by its Authors, (Mandip Mehra, e.a.) for blatant InCapacity to Verify its alleged "Data", ("Eurofora"'s 2nd Point of Criticism among 11 "Big Flaws" in that Controversial Text: See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/bogusmoveagainsthcqdrugvvirus.html, etc),

+ while WHO, at nearby Geneva, Immediately Decided to Restore HCQ+ international Trials and Continue as normal, (After having Earlier Suspendeded them, because of Slandering by that "Bogus" Fake-Study : Comp. Supra),

>>> On the Contrary, "LANCET"'s CEO reportedly Refused to Publish French Professor Didier Raoult's Team's Recent Findings in favor of "HCQ+"'s Efficiency against the Virus, (See, f.ex., partly, at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/hcqazrtopsurvivalcontravirus.html, etc), including Even those of Many Specialists Angiologists, etc. on the capacity to Avoid or Control any eventual Side-Effect on Heart Issues, (which, practicaly, Replied to the Main Slandering by that "Bogus" Fake-Study)...

=> + Suddenly, Moreover, the "NEJM" Publishes anOther so-called "Study" Claiming that HCQ would be InEfficient (i.e. Not Better than Placebo), and even have more "Side Effects" than Placebo... (Boulware a.o. : See Infra).

+ In Addition, "NEJM"'s New Editor in Chief, Mr. Rubin, (See Infra), Hurries up to Hastily Add (in ...an Audio podcast !) a Front-Page "EDITORIAL", making Further Publicity to that New so-called "Study" Against HCQ+...

++ Meanwhile, the Scandal of the Previous, 1st "Bogus" Fake-Study Against HCQ+, Announced with its "Retraction" by its Authors Today, is practically ...HIDDEN Down Below, towards the End of the Page, and, Even, ...Deprived of Any Mention of "HCQ+" at its Heading (sic !), as if it might concern Anything Else... (What "Journalistic Ethics" !)

+++ As for WHO's Decision to Restore HCQ+ (Comp. Supra), our Eyes, Honestly, did Not manage to Catch it, Neither at that edition of "NEJM", Nor at its Equivalent of "LANCET", ...But, Perhaps, we May Need Glasses able to read Small Letters, and/or more Patience, to Search Down, or Back, at Internal Pages, or even at some Later Day...

++++ Moreover, it's Difficult or Impossible to Notice any Visible Mention by Neither "LANCET", Nor ""NEJM", of "Eurofora"s Pioneer, thorough Denunciation of that 1st "Bogus" Fake-Study slandering "HCQ+" Cure, Dated also from 22/5/2020 (See at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/bogusmoveagainsthcqdrugvvirus.html), and Not Even of anOther Critical Collective "Open Letter", Afterwards signed by Almost 400 Medical Doctors from 5 Continents accross the World, published at the Internet around 28-29/5/2020) !


>>> But, in Fact, that "New" so-called "Study" Against HCQ+, is Only anOther "Bogus" Fake-"Study" :

- Indeed, inter alia, it concerns Only HCQ Alone, and Not at all its Combination with "Azithromycine", which, Notoriously is the Formula of which were speaking its main Supporters, including French Dr. Didier Raoult, USA President Don Trump, etc. !

+ Even Despite that, nevertheless, the HCQ Group of Patients reportedly had +3% Better Results against the Virus, than the Placebo Group. These Results have been Accused by the authors to "Not Differ Significantly", But, in real Practice, they might, perhaps, Save Human Lives...

++ In Addition, the "Dose" of HCQ used there was, Excessively ...1.400 mg (sic !) from the First Day (and afterwards 600), Instead of the 500 mg Maximum Limit fixed f.ex. by the Medical Authorities in France, (around which is located also Dr. Raoult's formula) : In such Conditions, it's obviously too Easy to make Claims about some Alleged "Side Effects" (artificially Provoked)... And, at any case, Most Drugs may have one or another Side-Effect, while, Obviously "Placebo" always has none !

+++ Moreover, its Authors Curiously note that they were Obliged to Stop Earlier than scheduled, their Trial, for UnClear reasons. They Even Admit that a "Majority" of their Patients ...had Not yet been Diagnosticated with the Virus (sic !), Claiming that this would be due to Alleged InSuficiencies because "Testing was Mostly UnAvailable" (sic !), while US President Trump's Administration has Notoriously Boosted Test Diagnostics, First of all, and, apparently, More than at any other Country in the World !

++++ Last, but not least, those Authors had particular Links to Canada, and Especialy Quebec, with the Only "PhD" among them having a French Name, while many were Financialy Supported by various French-Language/Culture Organisations. However, at the Same Time, a Controversial French Ministry of Health has Notoriously ...Attacked HCQ+ Nowadays, in a Long Series of at least ...5 Attempts to Stop it :  First by Prohibiting Medical Prescriptions against the Virus, (not even for Medical Doctors themselves !), Afterwards by Limiting it Only to Terminal, Grave Cases, by Collective Decisions in Hospitals, (i.e. When it's well Known that HCQ+ is No More Efficient, Contrary to the Beginning of the Infection), Followed by a Move to, Later, Drop even that, as well as to Stop ...16 Trials Studies currently organized by various Public-Private Medical Research Actors with HCQ+, and apparently Intervened inside a 10 States' Committee of the about 200 Member States-strong WHO in order to Initially Suspend International Trials Research on HCQ+, (which was, However, Later-on ...Restored by the WHO's Leadership, When it was Proved that the Above-Mentioned "Bogus" Fake-"Study" slandering the CHQ+ was, in Fact, a Ridiculous Hoax, as "Eurofora" had Denounced the First : Comp. Supra, + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/bogusmoveagainsthcqdrugvvirus.html)


 * Now, What about that New Editor in Chief of Establishment's Media "NEMJ", who has, Surprizingly, just Multiplied, at least Five (5 !) Aggressive Moves Against HCQ+ in almost One Day (See Facts cited Supra) ?

It's a "Pleasure" to Introduce "Immunology and Infectious Diseases"' specialist, (i.e. Aware of Virus' issues), Dr. Eric Rubin..., inter alia, at least with an Astonishing Series of relevant "Stunning" Facts :

- Already when he was a Kid, his "Father : a Salesman who Never attended College", reportedly "told him that he Had to go to Medical School", even if "he did NOT Have to PRACTICE Medicine", (i.e. Not to Heal Suffering People), as "his father explained", "BUT he Had to at least ATTEND medical school", Because it was Perceived as ..."the BenchMark of SUCCESS (sic !) IN THE EYES of his" acquaintances...

=> In Consequence, Later-on, when Asked : - "Why do I work on TuBerculosis ?", he Acknowledged that, Normaly, "the Answer that I Should (...) give, is that I’m a Doctor, I’ve seen patients who are Sick, it’s a Horrible Disease, and I really want to Help People". But, in Fact, "it’s Not what has Motivated me in the past or now", he Admits. On the Contrary, "What Motivates me, is that doing Science is really FUN (sic !). It’s a Blast"..., he bluntly confessed.

>>> Nevertheless, Rubin Also, Bitterly aknowledged that : - “I’ve been in the [Harvard Chan Public Health] School for 20 YEARS, and we Still do NOT have Anything that even looks like a DRUG (that would Heal People) from My Lab (sic !). And I’m Disappointed in that.”

- Despite that Fact, several of his Pals look ...Enthousiast : - "Tuberculosis (TB) is certain to Remain one of the Leading Infectious Killers. Millions Will Perish in the coming Decades, and Many Millions More will become Sick. But, ...Scientists now Know More than ever about the Bacterium, and the discoveries made in Rubin’s Lab (See Infra) have given new Momentum to TB Research", they Cynicaly Boast !  

=> In Other Words : Still Many Millions of Sick People and even Dead, during Decades to come, ... But, Also, a lot of ...BS, MD, MS, PhD, Post-Docs, Professors, Labs, Medical Schools, $ Millions or $ Billions of Funds for RST Projects, NEJM + LANCET MSMedias, etc., and so-called (passive ?) "Knowledge" of the "Bacterium" which Kills... In Brief : "the Paradise !" (Literally)...

- But, in Fact, the Real Interests of Dr. Rubin don't always seem to be Limited Only to such "Trivial" Matters of Funds, Posts, etc.

F.ex, Already, "among (his) First Big Ideas" was "a Technique ...(nicknamed "TraSH") which Disrupted ...4,000 or so Genes, ...to Reveal those that are Essential to ...Survival", so that they could become "Potential ...Targets", on the occasion of the Fight Against the TB "Bacterium".

But, afterwards, Rubin Focused on "Zika Virus" since "2016", when USA and WHO "Confirmed a Link" with "the severe Birth Defect Micro-Cephaly" (means "Small Head") : "It was Surprizing, that Zika Virus .. would have These Consequences", he stressed. Asked "What are Your Biggest Scientific Questions about Zika ?", he Replied : "the Brain AbNormalities, such as MicroCephaly, and Other conditions in the Fetus","more Subtle, ...such as Development Delays". Anew asked "What can You Learn from an OutBreak like this ?", he Answered: - "Differences between THE DEVELOPING BRAIN OF THE FETUS, and the fully Formed Brain" : -"Why does Zika virus Infect the Brain of the Fetus ?" (in the Womb). -"If it doesN’t infect the Adult Brain, Why not ?" Also the "Brain of ...Children doesN't seem to be Affected in the Same way". And, "If Women get infected Early in Pregnancy, is that Better or Worse than Late in Pregnancy ?", he wondered.

 -  Indeed, "from ... Virus, we also Learn a lot about Fundamental Human Biology", Rubin stressed. "Because they’re Probes of Our own Physiology. Microbes Exploit ... the Normal Processes that occur in us and Subvert them". Often, "we didN’t Know that Those normal Processes even Existed, Until they got Subverted". So that, Emerging Infections like Zika Virus Help us better Understand Ourselves (sic !)", he Explained, (Again ...Far away from Any explicit Healing aim : Comp. Supra)...

+ An Interesting Point is also his View about the astonishing Emergence and Spread of "New" kinds of Virus, (Radical Changes in Old Virus, or Appearance of Entirely New), Recently :

(a) F.ex. "Zika, Chikungunya, Dengue, West Nile virus, Japanese Encephalitis (stems from "Brain"): ALL of these Infections Jumped to the Western Hemisphere in Recent Years, (f.ex. on 2015 Zika, a Bacterium Known Since ...1947, i.e. almost ...70 Years Later !),  !) from Far-flung parts of the World, and are now permanently established. What does that tell you ?", he was asked.

(b) In Parallel, f.ex., "the Latest human-transmitted Bird Flu (H1N1), in 2009, came out of Mexico (in fact, California). No one Predicted SARS (2003). No one predicted Zika (2015), (as Also MERS on 2013, and COVID on 2019-2020). Why are Emerging Infections so Hard to Forecast?

- On the 1st Point, Rubin Simply Replied that "Mosquitoes are a GREAT WAY (sic !) TO SPREAD Disease. WHEN YOU TRANSPLANT a Disease into a New Area (re-sic !!), with the Right mosquito VECTOR, it can Spread like Wild-Fire. In the case of both chikungunya and Zika, it’s, probably, (Also) that People have NO NATURAL IMMUNITY".

- On the 2nd Point, he bluntly claimed that All such New, "Emerging Infections" (Comp. Supra), "are Inherently UNPREDICTABLE, Because of HUMAN BEHAVIOR" (sic !). "There is also a set of GENETIC MUTATIONS and ReCombinations", he continued here. Paradoxically, he found "completely predictable", at least, that this "WILL PRODUCE (sic !) A VIRUS that’s highly Virulent and EFFICIENTLY (re-sic !!) SPREAD from human to human.... BUT you have NO Idea WHEN, Because there are so Many random EVENTS that have to happen", as he said, withOut Explaining...

>>> Last, but not least, Rubin, during Recent Years (2018-2019+), was (and, may-be, Still is) Notoriously "Keen to ...GENETICALLY ENGINEER a Strain of" a VIRUS... (sic !).  This would, reportedly, be a kind of "M. TUBERCULOSIS BACTERIUM". He Claims that he would search "to Answer" "the Question ...Whether it's Possible to...Use" that in order "to TEST Drugs and Vaccines". This would be done "in Animals", (naturally including Mamals), but Obviously Destinated, Afterwards, to serve Humans.

- In particular, he had Focused on the (very Topical Nowadays) Fact that "TB is a LUNG INFECTION, and LUNGS CONSTANTLY INTERACT with the Environment VIA RESPIRATION", while "OUR (Humans') BREATH —and the Breath of Animals—carries all sorts of Volatile MARKERS on it, some of which Smell". Thus, he has had "GENETICALLY ENGINEERED these ("TB"-like) BACTERIA to PRODUCE a Volatile Molecule that Smells.... The BACTERIA then can be AEROSOLIZED and administered TO INFECT ... LUNGS" (sic !).

=> "As the INFECTION DEVELOPS and the BACTERIA MULTIPLY, the ...Smelling “Reporter Molecule” can be DETECTED and Quantified", (using a Method known as "Gas Chromatography-mass spectrometry"). “You MEASURE the Amount ... that you Smell on the BREATH, and that should correlate with the NUMBER OF BACTERIA in" whoever serves as Guinea Pig. He Claims that "this will tell us whether a ...Vaccine or Drug is ...Reducing the BACTERIAL LOAD IN THE ...LUNGS", or not. "We’re Calling the [Artificially Engineered Virus] Organism : <<Myco-Bacterium Tubercu [from "Tuberculosis"...]-Mint>>, Rubin "Jokes"...

- "This is the Type of ..."FUN—RESEARCH" that gets Rubin Excited", (Comp. Supra), according to the Orders Executed by a "Post-Doc" acting "Under his co-Guidance", "in a Lab directly across the Hall from Rubin’s Office", observes an Article Published at Harvard's SPH Review...

=> But, Many People, Nowadays (June 2020), amidst the Crisis of a Deadly Virus Never Seen Before, which Infects and Targets Humans' Lungs, certainly wouldN't find that "Funny" at all !..


- Change of Theater :

15 June. Suddenly, in the Middle of Riots fuelled by "Black Lives Matter", "AntiFa", and Various Other Grouplets, while Even the "White House" is Attacked, an Obama-Appointed, Black FDA Official with a French Name, withdraws a Facility Earlier given to HCQ+ Drug, that President Trump recently Revealed he's taking for Prophylaxis, (after 2 WH Staff were found Infected). FDA Chief, Appointed by Trump, isn't seen Nowhere...

- Despite Many, Repeated Claims to be "Based Only on Science" and "Facts" (sic !), Nevertheless, ...Neither Any "Facts", Nor any "Science" isN't Found, in order to Explain that move, Neither at its Press Release, Nor at the Signed Decision, Obliging to Search at an "Attached" "Memorandum", and Download an Anonymous Paper, in order to Find the Slightest Reference to a concrete "Fact"...  


Denise Hinton was First Appointed to a FDA Direction Job during Former POTUS Barack Hussein Obama, since 2014. Previously, that Black American with a French Name, had Worked at FDA's "Training" a.o. Various Sections, and holds, basicaly, a BD on "Nursing" (sic !), followed by a MS at Boston, (a notorious Social/Liberal Hotspot). The Additional Fact that this, eventualy Anti-Trump move, came in the middle of the Minneapolis' Row, which is Notoriously abused in Attempts to Oppose Black People to President Trump, while, on the Contrary, he has Strived (and widely Succeeded) to Attract Black Voters already as Early as since his landmark "Inauguration" Speech at Cleveland, Ohio, on Summer 2016, as well as at several Other Occasions more Recently, (f.ex. on Economy, Schools, etc), obviously indicating that a possible Political Biais might have, more or less, abused of inadequate, incomplete, and/or Uncertain yet Data.


FACTS : FDA admits that Most of the "Published Studies" on which would be Based its June 15 Controversial Move Against "HCQ+", would be Mere "Observational Comparisons", and even "an Extremely Small ...Trial" !

So that the Only Trial that FDA considers Today to have "High Quality Data" (sic !), is that of "Tang et al"., which has been Published since ... May ! (See Infra).


=> But, from the Few "Studies" Citted by that FDA's paper of June 15 :

- Three (3) do Not even use "HCQ+", (But Only the Old "CQ" Alone);

- Four (4) use Only "HCQ" Alone, (some Even in Surprisingly Excessive Doses, which might Provoke "Side-Effects"), withOut "AZ" at all, (Nor Zinck);

- Only 2 use "HCQ" and, at least, Some "AZ", But One in UnCertain Numbers of Cases, and Both with a Too Small Number of Patients, (about 40 or 17, respectively, While, f.ex., Dr. Raoult's pro-HCQ+AZ+ Latest Studies concerned 1.061 [Published May 2020] or about 3.700 Patients [Retrospective, Published on June 2020 : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/hcqazrtopsurvivalcontravirus.html] );  Moreover, the Second was Focused on "Intensive Care" cases, which Notoriously doN't Fit with "HCQ+AZ+", that should be administered Early, while the First, made in Saudi Arabia, is Only "Retrospective" ;

+ (ETC+)...


>>> Now, What happens with FDA's "Hard Nut to Crack", i.e., the Above-Mentioned "Tang et al" Study, which would have "the Highest Quality Data", (sic !), as it Claims ?

- (1) - First of all, it does Not Concern the Famous Formula, notoriously supported by US President Don Trump, French Professor Didier Raoult, and others, which is Composed mainly by "HCQ" and "AZ", normaly added to "Zinc", But ...Only by "HCQ" Alone !

- (2) - Curiously, it Abuses of a Too Big Dose of "HCQ", ... More than the Double (sic !) of what is the upper Limit Prescribed f.ex. by the French State (500 mg) and Professor Raoult himself (600 mg) per Day : Indeed, it went Up to ... 1.200 mg (during Each One of the First Three Days, 800 mg per Day Afterwards) !!!

No Wonder, then, Why Some Patients Complained of "Side-Effects", such as, Mainly "Diarrhea" (10%), as that "Study" criticizes...

- (3) - However, Despite all that, Nevertheless, that "HCQ" Group of Patients Succeeded to get clearly ...Better Health Results, than the "Standard of Care" Group, Ameliorating their Performance for at least + 4,1% More !

But the Organizers of that Trial Claimed that this would be ..."Non Significant"...

- (4) - Various Doubts, Controversies, and UnClear or even Scandalous aspects concerning the DATA of this Study, Raise Serious Questions :

a) FDA's Decision was taken on JUNE, But that Study was Published on MAY, and contains a Mention about having being Written on APRIL, while the Actual Trial took place on ...FEBRUARY ! I.e. it looks Too OLD : FDA's Claims about "New Data" are False...  

b) That Trial was "EARLY Terminated", its Authors admit, because of Problems of "Recruitment of ...Patients". Nevertheless, an Obscure "Committee"s Members, "ALL" (sic !) Found that those "Data" were "Important" in order ...."TO AVOID ...USE OF HCQ" (sic !), that they Qualify "InAppropriate". I.e., its Data seem INSUFFICIENT, and Moved by BIAIS.

c) The Trial was DISPERSED throughout "3 Provinces" and "SixTeen (16) Health Centers" !... I.e., it appears Difficult, if not ImPossible, to Verify their Existence, Accuracy, Equality of Conditions, etc.

d) The Authors did Not Handle the Trial's Data themselves, Directly, and Independently. On the Contrary they "HIRED" an INTERMEDIARY, i.e. "a CONTRACT RESEARCH Organisation", (Named : "R&G Pharma-Studies"), who "ASSISTED" them "in the Study Design, Data Collection and Cleaning", and Statistical Analyses", as well as in "Recording Data", etc.

This is a very Important Role, But the chosen Company looks ...Too Much UnReliable and FISHY !... Among Many Strange Facts, which indicate a "Bogus" Fake-Study, here are some :

- The WebSite of that Company does Not Work at all !... (See relevant Screenshot + Web Address).

- It Claims to have a "Globalized Team" for Management, But All Names cited at its "Bloomberg" Registry are Only Chinese.

- Elsewhere, it Claims to have More than ... "700 Staff". But in its "Blooberg" Registry is Noted ...Only One (1) "Controller", and Nothing else... in this regard, (its "Number of Employees" entry remaining Empty !)

- By some apparently "Bogus" Internet Pseudo-"Publications", it's Linked, (on so-called "Medi-Data" Technology) with a very Shady, and apparently Bogus, Individual, of ...Turkish Origin, "Hulus Alpay", (reportedly Graduate of "Monmouth" University since 1996), who seems to have Changed More Various alleged Jobs, than Shirts...



=> It's Obviously Scandalous, for the Most Powerful Country in the World, (USA), to let practically Depend Citizens' Health from such Trash !...


=> After Establishment's Medias etc. notoriously went "Ga-Ga" against HCQ+, Raining "Bogus" Fake-Studies, since 22/5/2020, By a Coincidence, ..."Lady GA-GA"'s Latest Song : "Rain on me", Published exactly that Same Day : 22/5/2020, Fits them well...:


















+ However, in Fact, even this FDA's Decision is Not so Negative, vis a vis HCQ+, as it seems at First Sight, But has Also some POSITIVE aspects :

- Indeed, FDA's Official Press Release goes on to Add also that : Succesfull Traditional Drug HCQ+ is, Already, "FDA-Approved to Treat or Prevent Malaria", and  it's "Also approved to treat AutoImmune conditions", "such as ...Lupus", including "rheumatoid Arthritis". Such "Drugs have been Prescribed for Years to Help Patients with ...Debilitating, or even Deadly, Diseases, and FDA has Determined that these Drugs are Safe and Effective, when Used, for these diseases, in Accordance with their FDA-approved Labeling", i.e. Carefully.  

=> In Addition, "Of note, FDA Approved Products (as HCQ+) May be Prescribed by Physicians (Also) for Off-Label Uses","including during COVID" Virus,  "IF they (Physicians) determine it is Appropriate for Treating their patients", FDA Today suggested in Addition.



>>> On the Contrary, Failed "Ebola-Drug" "REMDESIVIR", (initially) Scheduled for 2015-2017, Not yet FDA Approved, got just "an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) in May 2020, allowing for Remdesivir ... to be administered IntraVenously, By health care Providers, as Appropriate, to treat ...COVID-19 in ...patients Hospitalized, with Severe Disease" Only. On the Contrary, Eventual "Safety and Efficacy of Remdesivir for ...COVID-19" in general,  Still "Continue to Be Evaluated".

=> In Consequence, (and given Recent Critical Studies, f.ex. from China, etc), "the EUA Requires that Fact-Sheets about using <<Remdesivir>> in treating COVID-19 be made available to Health care Providers and to Patients and Caregivers". "Including information on possible Side-Effects, such as: increased levels of Liver enzymes, which may be a sign of Inflammation or Damage to cells in the liver; and Allergic reactions, which may include low Blood Pressure, high" or "low Heart Rate, Shortness of Breath, Wheezing, angio-Edema (f.ex, lip or tongue Swelling), Difficulty Swallowing, Rash, Nausea, Vomiting, Sweating, Shivering, and Respiratory Distress."

- What a Long List...

ECHR's President to "EuroFora" on Journalists Gongadze and Adali murders : Principles must apply to all States, without discrimination.

+ ECHR's Statistics on Freedom of Expression (See below).

 European Court of Human Rights' President, Jean-Paul Costa, questioned by "EuroFora" on Journalists' murders, as in Gongadze and Adali's cases etc., strongly stressed all CoE Member States' obligation to make efficient Investigations to find and punish those responsible, and underlined that ECHR's case-law's principles must apply to all without any discrimination.

His call was clearly supported by various Top MEPs who denounced a risk of "Double Standards" if some Journalists' murders are investigated, while others don't.

To avoid such risks, CoE's Parliamentary Assembly adopted a Resolution, on the occasion of Ukranian Journalist Gongadze's murder, "stressing", as a matter of general Principle, "the importance it attaches to the safety of Journalists and political activists, especially those linked to opposition groups, in ALL member states of the CoE". All "crimes against journalists and political activists must be investigated ... as a matter of priority, without political interference".

Costa was replying to "EuroFora"s question on the fact that, after CoE's Committee of Ministers, also CoE's Assembly had just adopted a Resolution on Gongadze murder case, based on an ECHR's judgement of 2005, asking a full Investigation from Ukraine, who has found and condemned  in 10 years of jail 2 executants, but not yet the instigators.

While nothing similar was yet done for dissident Turkish Cypriot Kutlu Adali's murder, with 5 bullets shot at his head out of his Family's home in the territories of Cyprus occupied by Ankara's army, despite another ECHR's judgement of the same year 2005, and despite Turkey's claim that nobody was found among those responsible for the murder, and that there was nothing more to do..

In order to be credible and efficient, CoE's mechanisms shouldn't find a way to at least ask for full investigations of all Journalists' murders anywhere they might be committed, without exceptions ?


- "On the larger question that you raised, I'd like to say, since we are in a period of stock-taking on ECHR's 50 Years, that the Court's case-law developed certain concepts ....such as the Positive obligations of States, part of which are also the procedural obligations", started to reply ECHR's President.

 - "Whenever Journalists, Lawyers, Defenders of Human Rights, or even simple Citizens are murdered, the States are held responsible, not only if its their own security forces' agents who committed these murders, but also if they didn't make sufficiently substantial and efficient Investigations", he stressed.

- "I want to strongly underline that we (ECHR) have found in many cases numerous violations of Articles 2 and 3 against States, ....(about) murders or torture, ...because they didn't make enough Investigations in order to try to find and punish those responsible".

- "We (ECHR) do that vis-a-vis all 47 (CoE) Member States, without any discrimination".

"Naturally, the circumstances in each particular case may be differend, and we can't ommit to apply the rules of proof, or the rules of criminal procedure".

"But we try, by all means, to apply these principles of our case-law, to all States", he concluded.


      Costa's call was strongly supported by several Top CoE MEPs, from various Political areas

- "To investigate the murder of one Journalist, and not of another, looks like Double Standards", denounced the President of EuroLeft Group in CoE's Assembly, Dutch MEP Tiny Cox.  

- "What is the reason ? Politics or specificity of a case ? Of course, if Cyprus and Turkey are involved, it's always a Political case"..

- "Murders of Journalists should always be fully investigated, because killing Journalists is not only killing persons, but also killing Free Press".  "We (CoE's Assembly) should do our outmost to help People who are working on Free Press and they are under threat or murdered".

Because for Free Politics, Free Press is a pre-requisitive : Parliamentarians  cannot  function without a Free Press. Not investigating, is not protecting ourselves".

So we should investigate all Journalists' murders : We are talking about Gongadze, about the Cypriot man (Adali), about the Journalist murdered in Moscow one week ago, etc", Cox concluded

- "CoE can' look at these cases differently. CoE can't wear Blinckers  !".
- "If the one is investigated, so has to be also the other. Why there wasn't full investigation ? Why's that ?", wondered British  Socialist MEP, Alan Meale.

- "A good idea" would be to "make a Motion for Resolution", and "join all Journalists' murders. Adali and Gongadze etc", said to "EuroFora" EU Parliament Political affairs Committee's President, Goran Lindbland, ChristianDemocrat MEP from Sweden.

(See also earlier News at "EuroFora" on similar issues).

ECHR's Statistics on Freedom of Expression :

    Almost Half of condemnations by ECHR for violations of Freedom of Expression in 2008, concern Turkey : 20 out of a total of 48 for all CoE's Member States.

    Russia, Poland, France and Moldova were condemned only 3 times. Romania, Greece, Portugal, 2 times, and the other CoE Member States only 1 time, or none.
