 *Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- According to the Latest Official Press Anouncements, only 14 Irregular Migrants were Returned Back to Turkey, at the Same Time that More than ...278 New Arrivals of Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants through Turkey have entered inside the EU (+Schenghen area) Member Greece, during these last 2 Days (17 + 18 August 2016).


I.e. the current Rate of Returns, compared to New Mass Arrivals, between Turkey and EU, is .. Less than Five per Cent : 5 % only !

 

+278 v. 14 (i.e. less than 5%): Thus goes Now that controversial EU - Turkey Deal on Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants (See Infra) in real Practice... 


+ In Addition, more than 57.000 Mass Irregular Migrants, who had all arrived Earlier through Turkey, still remain in Greece, after Crossing irregularly EU's External Borders. This is, obviously, just a "Small" Part of the More than 1,5 Million of IMIs who notoriously crossed into Europe via Turkey during 2015-2016.


The above mentioned 14 Returnees Back to Turkey were taken in charge by EU's FRONTEX, which had to Pay and Organise Air Plane Flights and Special Boat Transports these last two Days.


At the Same Time, the More than 278 New Arrivants apparently came inside the EU with various Turkish Smugglers' ships.


Thus goes, in Real Practice, the infamous, Controversial and UnPopular EU - Turkey Deal, which Costs to EU Citizens Taxpayers (i.e. including Poor People, obliged to pay at least VAT, etc) more than 9 Billions € earmarked for Ankara between 2015 - 2018...

 And it is even Foreseen, according to that (notoriously "Blackmailed" Deal, brokered "en catimini" a Shady Sunday in a Deserted Brussels, notoriously Blocked by a Total Emergendy "Black-Out" of all Public a.o. Transports just after more recent Extremist Islamic Terrorists' Deadly Attacks against innocent Civilian People), for ...Each Individual thus Returned back to Turkey, to be Compensated (sic !) by anOther Migrant, now even ...officialy Chosen by the Turkish Authorities among those available at its Asiatic Borders to Syria and/or Iraq, etc...


Moreover, the Turkish Government openly Now Blackmails the EU by Threatening, in a lot of Statements to EU Media, that Ankara would unleash a 2nd "Tsunami" of even more Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants (in fact, "Selected" by Turkish Agents in one way or another, f.ex. Christians and/or Qualified People Excluded, almost No Women, Nor Real Children and only a Few Families, etc., as in the recent Past), IF Europeans don't Yield to an Ultimatum to Accept also another, even More Controversial and UnPopular, total "Visa-Free" status for 80 Millions of Turks, (according to which, anybody of them could come Enter and Stay inside Europe for 6 Monhs Each Year, whenever he/she liked)...


Meanwhile, ...NATO Warships, Airplanes and other Military stuff, reinforced European FRONTEX equipment and Personel, as well as the latest EU CoastGuard, just voted by EU Parliament in Strasbourg since Early July (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euexternalbordersguard.html ), are supposed to have recently Started to Protect EU's External Borders, in the obviously Stategicaly located Greek Islands accross the Aegean Sea, (after also a Famous such Call by German Chancelor Angie Merkel at nearby Karlsruhe already from December 2015 : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/merkelagainstsmugglersataegeansea.html ).


EU Citizens' notoriously Growing Concerns about such Issues notoriously were a Main Driver for the UK Popular Referendum's Majority Voting for "BREXIT" at the End of June 2016. "A Fortiori" after the Recent Series of Deadly Attacks by various Muslim Asylum Seekers/irregular Immigrants who Killed and/or Wounded Many innocent Civilian People in several European Countries even more during this Summer : F.ex. France, Germany, Switzerland, the UK, Belgium, Austria, etc, (while it has also Discovered that Most ISIL's Armed Terrorists who Killed more than 100 Civlians in Paris on November 2015 had already Entered into the EU through Turkey and via Greece, Hidden among that Mass of IMIs). This was Added to Many Recent Brutal Mobs' Aggressions against Defenseless European Women and even Only 14 years old Young Girls in several Cities accross Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Swizerland, the UK, etc., (See, f.ex. CoE's relevant Debate + Resolution in Strasbourg, at http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coeforenquiryandjusticeonmobviolentattacksagainstwomen.html), going afterwards Down to even 10 or 4 years old young Boys, f.ex. in Wien and Boostedt, or a 79 y.o. Elder Woman in a Cemetery at Iddenbueren last July, and to a lot of Aggressions at Public Swimming Pools as German Police Reports denounced,  (etc).  All these recent Facts Fuel also various "EuroSceptic" and/or Rightist, etc., often called "Populist" Movements, progressively inspiring even Mainstream Political Parties, (inevitably including also several Strongly Motivated Pro-Europeans and/or sincere Human Rights Defenders, Shocked by the Tragedy suffered by so Many Innocent Victims and subsequent "Terror" or Fear Spreading among the People, as f.ex. lately in Wien, etc), accross all Europe.


In this regard, at least for the Time being, all serious observers are, in fact, obliged to Acknowledge that, in Real Practice, the Only "Good News", which currently Protect European People from even Worse such Treats, are the "De Facto" Border Checks and Controls, notoriously set up by several European Countries, particularly accross the so-called "Western Balkans Route" Exposed to Turkey via Greece, such as, f.ex. Bulgaria, FYROM, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Hungary, etc., with Support from the Czech Republic, Slovakia (current EU Council's rotating Presidency-holder : Comp. f.ex. Prime Miinister Robert Fico's relevant Reply to "Eurofora"s Question during the latest EU Heads of State/Government Summit in Brussels, June 2016: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/ficomigrationpolicymightpushbrexits.html), which had already Started to seriously Curb and Reduce that Unprecedented Mass Migration influx hrough Turkey, as Early as since Middle February 2016, as even Official UNHCR and IMO Data have Proved, according also to a Pioneer Analysis and Publication by "Eurofora" from Early May : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/unpopulareuvisafreefor80millionsturksuseless.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/weltadoptseuroforaviewonuselesseuturkeymigrantsdealafternewthreat.html).


But, at this Eve of the forthwoming 27 EU Head of State/Government Summit due to kickStart, for the 1st Time at such a level, (as former French President Nicolas Sarkozy had vainly Asked, already as Early as since August 2007, and promised but finaly Downplayed by controversial Former EU Commission President Barroso, now a US Global Financial "Goldman Sachs" employee), Debate on EU's Future developments, on Mid-September 2016 in Bratislava (Slovakia), which Timely Coincides with the Sad "Anniversary" of Last Year's, Middle-August 2015 sudden Start of that ...Public Transports-Helped, Unprecedented in History, Huge "Tsunami" of More than 1,5 Million Massive Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants' influx inside the EU through Turkey and via Greece, the Obvious Question which is Now Raised is :


=> How Europe will Defend its External Borders, (while also Helping, in one way or another, the Real Refugees, who are notoriously a small Minority among that Mass of Irregular Migrants from Various Muslim Countries related to, and at least partly Selected by Turkey : Comp. Supra), and Protect EU Citizens, as well as a Real, Historic and Socio-Cultural European Cohesion in the forseable Future ?

Bloody concrete Facts about most of the Recent Victims who Died or were Wounded by Violent Attacks of various Muslim Migrants cowardly attacking innocent and defenseless Civilian People in Europe, (f.ex., from Wurzburg or Munich and Reutlingen, up to Haute-Savoie, Magnanville, Nice, Gratz, etc., as well as in USA's Tennessee, San Bernandino, Orlando, etc), clearly reveal that Mere Economic "Integration" is NOT Enough at all, but only a Tragic and irresponsible Blunder, IF a sincere Socio-Cultural Integration at least on elementary Values (particularly Hard for those Chosen by Turkey, in one way or another : Comp. Supra) is Neglected or even Totaly Absent.

This naturaly goes Hand by Hand Together (but Not as a Pre-Condition at all) also with an obviously Timely and long-overdue interogation, on what Role Europe should play in Collective Efforts to put, at last, an End to the Sufferings of Syrian People since the Bloody and Destructive, Violent Upheavals that some have notoriosuly Provoked between 2011-2016.

Indeed, at least Now, that After-BREXIT Europe, isn't supposed to Start playing, at last, an increasingly Important Foreign Policy Role in the World ? Not even at EU's close Neighbourhood ?

However, according to Press Reports, a large 3/4 Majority of irregular Migrants arriving to EU Member Greece from Turkey during the Last 1,5 Month (i.e. about 2.000 on July-MidAugust 2016), were Not even Syrians...

  Ten Years of ECHR : 1998 - 2008 show need of Revival in 2009-2010 coinciding with 2009 EU Election
   

A threefold, coordinated move by new Top French Political actors in the 2009 EU Parliament Elections, expressed in Strasbourg a will to boost Europe's Political dimension close to Citizens' concerns, going from protection of Economy to defence of Human Rights.    

The move met an exceptional ECHR's call for a "revival" of Human Rights' protection mechanism', in a Mega-Conference, early 2010.   

Obviously focusing on June 2009 Elections to EU Parliament, it involved from the outset the recently nominated "dual" Head of French Governing Party (UMP)  Michel BARNIER and Rachida DATI :

imag0282_400

     - "As President Sarkozy has clearly said, we (France) are in favor of a Strong, Sovereign and Independent, Political Europe, which protects its Citizens, and not for a large Super-Market, nor for a Europe under influence",

    "This goes for everything, including Energy", added to "EuroFora" the experienced former EU Commissioner, Minister of Foreign affairs, currently of Agriculture and Sarkozy's new pick as Leader of the Governing party UMP to EU 2009 Election, Michel BARNIER                                              .                             

  - Human Rights are important because they are at the Heart of the Political Europe that we aspire for : I.e. a Europe able to act and protect its Citizens, stressed also the New French Minister for European affairs, Bruno LE MAIRE, while meeting Strasbourg's Journalists at his first visit to the CoE.   

imag0313_400_01 

This is one of the main interests for CoE, which is also a natural place for cooperation between EU countries and Russia or Turkey, which was recently helpful at the Middle East crisis, he added.

The move gained momentum with French Minister of Justice, Rachida Dati's main observations at ECHR's 5Oth Anniversary :   

- "While we are seeking Europe's Borders and Identity, you (ECHR) remind us also of its Values", Human Rights, Dati noted.   

Citizens seek more and more often ECHR's help, and the tempo accelerates, Europa awaits a symbol, while national legal orders are not freezed   

And she expressed "support" to ECHR President Jean-Paul Costa's call to satisfy the vital need to revigorate the PanEuropean Court by deciding big changes at a High-Level Conference open to a large audience, a kind of "Etats Generaux" of Human Rights, at the beginning of 2010.       

dati_a_cedh_1_400 

It's not so much the recently growing number of applications for Russia or Ukraine etc, which seems to be Costa's main concern : In fact, the cases declared "admissible" are much fewer...    

But rather the persistent violations of Human Rights, sometimes very grave (ie. murders, torture, abritrary deprivation of liberty, oppression of freedom of speech, destructions of homes/properties, etc), despite numerous, repeated condemnations by ECHR. So that CoE's Ministers, due to "supervise execution" of ECHR's judgements, are overloaded.   

F.ex. most Media noted that Turkey still remains, even in 2008, the 1st among 47 CoE member States in the number of condemnations by ECHR :  257, compared to 233 for Russia, with a population more than the double..    

The problem is that it's not the 1st time at all : During all the last Decade 1998-2008, Turkey was condemned by ECHR much more than any other State, and for particularly grave violations :   

- 1.652 condemnations, compared to 605 for Russia, 548 for Poland, 494 for France, 476 for Ukraine, etc.   

Italy's second place with 1.394 condemnations is a misleading false appearance : In fact, most of them (999) concern mere "procedural delays" in national courts. Same for France.   

On the contrary, Turkey was condemned 180 times for Killings, 192 times for Torture or Inhuman/Degrading treatments, 340 times for arbitrary deprivation of Liberty, 528 times for "Unfair trial", and 169 times for oppression of Freedom of speech, (etc). And the latest, 2008 numbers, indicate no change in this trend, (See supra).   

The current Spanish CoE Presidency (November 2008 - May 2009) has made of the implementation of ECHR's judgements its 1st Priority.   

ECHR's President, Jean-Paul Costa, stressed in its 2009 Annual Press Conference, CoE Member States' obligation to implement the judgements, according to Article 46 of the European Convention on Human Rights.   

Moreover, if CoE's Committee of Ministers delays to ensure implementation, then, the repetition of violations in similar cases provokes a multiplication of complaints tabled to the Court, which overload the mecanism for the protection of Human Rights, denounced Costa.          

A series of Debates on "the situation of Human Rights in Europe", focusing on the "need to fight against Impunity" of perpetrators of grave crimes, is  currently prepared by CoE's Parliamentary Assembly for the session of June 2009.  

The final Timing comes shortly AFTER the EU Elections, but the main Reports should have been adopted before.

Meanwhile, French President Sarkozy and German Chancelor Merkel's recent call "for a Political Europe" in 2009 EU Elections (See earlier "correspondence from Paris, Elysee Palace), seems more and more endorsed also by other EU Countries' Top MEPs :

Thus, f.ex., EU Parliament's 1st vice-President, Greek MEP Mrs Rodi KRATSA, speaking to "EuroFora", agreed that 2009 EU Election would be a "naturally good" opportunity to debate what really interests EU Citizens : "The Future of a Political Europe, able to face the Economic Crisis, with a Culture and identity which attracts the People"
