☆ Strasbourg/CoE PressConference/Angelo.Marcopolo/- An hybrid CoE Video-Press Conference by PACE's  New President  Tiny Cox (2022-2024), where "Eurofora" was Invited, surprisingly Skiped yesterday Turkey in Cyprus, but Slamed Russia in Ukraine,  brandishing  Radical Sanctions as  immediate Expulsion  (Art. 8).

With 213 Votes, out of  648 Members of CoE's  Parliamentary Assembly (PACE Representatives and  Substitutes), and 3 Abstentions, Not any Participant Against, Strasbourg's Organisation practicaly Droped today its PanEuropean dimension by calling to Exclude Immediately  its Biggest  Member Country :  Russia, on the occasion of the current armed Conflict with the Post-2014 Kiev's Regimz in Ukraine,  that  Supporters call "Invasion", while Critics (as Moscow) name "DeMilitarisation", seeking a "Neutral" status  as described in nthe 1994 International DOcument on Recognition of  an Ukranian State, and Denying any attempt to Occupy a foreign Land.

 


A collegue Journalist raised Questions on Turkey in Syria, and Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabah, (Armenia), but Cox claimed, inter alia, that this was a UN and/or OSCE job.

-"Eurofora" asked if Turkey might be "Affected" in the case of Cyprus, as Ankara Recognized a Secession from theTurkish-Cypriot Minority already on 1983, and asked for a Partition of the Island on 2021, while Ankara's Army has Invaded and still Occupies its Northern area since 1974 until Nowadays, refusing to withdraw its Military (2020), but Asking for a Partition of the Country, Opposed to UNSC Resolutions, massively Usurpates Family Homes and/or Livelihood of a Greek-Cypriot Majority, Obliged to Leave the Occupied Territories as Refugees/Displaced persons (f.ex. on 1998, 2001, etc), where they are Notoriously "Replaced" by a massive Input of Turkish Anatolia "Settlers' (particularly Since 1997), in a move generaly Condemned by the IPC as "War Crime"), while also Systematically Failing to Investigate brutal Killings of "Missing" Greek Cypriots (which were Discovered particularly since 2010), as the Latest relevant CoE Ministers' Resolution on ECHR Judgments' Execution Denouned (2022).

 


On the Contrary,  Russia stressed from the outset that its Intention in Ukrania on 2022 was Not at all to Invade and Occupy any Territories, but just the "DeMilitarisation" of the country,  Striking  against Aggressive Military Outlets, (and Protecting Donetsk-Luhansk areas Civilian People from Imminent Bombardments by Kiev's "Putchists"),  in favour of a 'Neutrality"  for Ukrania, according to the Internatinal Document for the Independence of that State, Agreed Since 1994, Discussed ion Talks by Moscow and Kiev Nowadays, and Not Refused by the UNSC  on 2022, (s China, india, Russia, and UAE, did Not Condemn such an Original Move).

 


- However, Staffers seem to have Curiously Ommited to Transmit "Eurofora"s relevant Question to Cox in this Hybrid Video-Press Conference, (Even Despite an Experienced CoE"s Press Officer's advise to send also a brief Written message via the Chat  among Participants, as we  immediately did:  See relevant Web Screenshot)...

Cox's Group of the  Left has Only 39 MEPs (out of a Total of PACE"s 648), and he was inevitably backed by Others (particularly "Socialists" as Biden), who got part of the Power.

 


=> So that European People would be Hindered to know Why they should have their PanEuropean Space bullied by an Asiiatic, notoriously Constantly AntiDemocratic, Backward and UnderDeveloped; 99% Islamized by forceps Turkey, while ...Loosing a sometimes troublesome, but often Democratic, European Russia, with Science-High-Tech, Energy, Cukture, and Historic Civilisation, from Art, Christianism, to Space...

 


inter alia, General dz Gaule's and President Jacques Chirac's "Greater Europe" Dreams inevitably Implode in their Graves, as USA POTUS Biden's Administration, with its Notorious "Fack the E.U." (Miss Nuland on Ukraine, in 2014) paves a way to Hell.

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.
