*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- [NDLR: In a text Send to "Eurofora"+ by German Paneuropean Union's Head, Experienced former Long-Time MEP, Bernd Posselt, he mainly Urges EU's Conference on Europe's Future, whose 1st Plenary kick-Starts Tomorrow in Strasbourg, to Avoid "Mock Debates" in order to Focus on the Core Issues concerning the State of Europe. In this regard the Biden - Putin meeting at nearby Geneva, also on European Issues, in the Absence of any EU Representative, speaks by itself...  [See Infra].

We willingly Publish almost All his Original Text, (with Only 1 Word Edited), since "Eurofora" Agrees with Most of it. However, we Also Sincerely Believe that a Real and Full eventual Mobilisation of the Bulk of European People, (for the 1st Time in History, Possible, thanks to Modern TeleCommunications), if Rightfuly Developed, Could Stimulate Europe's Future as required by the World Nowadays. +In Addition, "Eurofora" Believes that National Democratic States are a proper European Characteristic, (f.ex. pratically Non-Existent in Africa, whose Bprders are Different, Neither in Asia, where Turkish, Indian, or Chinese "Empires" Dominate), and must he Preserved, as part of the European Democracy, bringing Closer to the People. Nevertheless, naturally, this does  Not Exclude at all an Eventual Federation of Europe ! On the sole condition that Small/Medium Member States might Defend their Vital National Security and/or Social Values' matters, at least in a (Court-controled) Proportional way, while leaving all Other Aspects to a possible Federal European State].

"Posselt: Becoming a (Federal) State, instead of Mock-Debate

Criticism of the EU Conference on the Future of Europe / Honouring Jean-Claude Juncker

47th Paneuropean Days of the Paneuropean Union Germany

18. 06. 2021

Trier. At the beginning of the 47th Paneuropean Days of the Paneuropean Union Germany (today) in Trier, its president, the CSU European politician Bernd Posselt, criticized the EU Conference on the Future of Europe, which was constituted at the same time in Strasbourg: "It must be about the State of the EU in the 21st century and not about ... Mock debates Past the Core of European problems.

He referred to the meeting between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin in Geneva: "It was about the fate of Europe, but the Europeans did not sit at the table."The blueprint for the further development of the EU is actually obvious:" We need a Strengthening of the European Parliament, an EU Commission Elected by it, which sees itself as a real European Government, the abolition of the Unanimity principle in Foreign policy, and a European Defence union.“

The Paneuropean Days are the Annual main event of the German branch of the Oldest European unification movement founded in 1922.

At tomorrow's rally, the patron of the Congress, former European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, visited by guests from different European countries, will be awarded the special Paneuropean Merit Medal. According to Posselt, the non-partisan Paneuropean Union will focus on three topics at the festive opening tonight and at the main rally on Saturday morning: the reconstruction of cross - border living and cultural spaces after the damage caused by the corona-related border closures, the establishment of a democratic and sovereign European federation and the role of Europe as a defender and beacon of human rights in the world.


From Trier, the oldest city in Germany, the participants will travel by bus to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, where Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, as President of the EU Bishops 'Conference, will celebrate a mass together with the President of the Bishops' Conference of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Franjo Komarica, in the famous pilgrimage town of Echternach. On Sunday, the Paneuropean Days, which are under the motto "Shaping Europe, not just managing it", end with a Protestant service, which Father Werner Sonn holds, as well as the annual Federal Delegate Assembly of the Paneuropean Union Germany.

They voted to "freeze" UK Government's draft to put People in jail for 42 Days on "anti-terrorist" suspicion without charge, or they abstained. Don't they look suspect ?

CoE's debate on UK controversy stirs PanEuropean check of anti-terror suspects' imprisonment

Former Leftists of the Sixties would boil in hot water if they heard PACE's debate on the controversial 42 days detention without charge, currently drafted by the British Government :

A "Socialist" Government, a Socialist PACE Rapporteur and a Socialist Chair of PACE's Legal Committee, opposed a .. "Conservative" amendment (supported by .. Liberals, Democrats, etc), to freeze the measure, in order to protect Citizens' Freedom, by "waiting" until CoE's Venice Committee checks its conformity with Human Rights' principles.

"Left"'s support to Conservative-Lib.Dem's criticism, wasn't enough to obtain a majority, nor to make things as they were back in the good old days, when "Left" and "Right" had a clear meaning, as "liberty" and "restrictions"...

Conservatives and most Democrats were joined by the Left in voting for the "freeze", as well as Liberal Paul Rowen, while Socialist MEP Ivan Popescu, an experienced MEP from Ukraine (PACE Member since 1996-2008) abstained. But most Socialists, added to a few Liberals and EPP's Right, voted against.

Fortunately, someone inside PACE had the wise idea to shorten the Debate for less than 1 Hour, and put it on the Agenda only at the end of an exceptionally busy day, towards the end of the Evening, when most MEPs had already gone to taste wins and foods at various Receptions all around Strasbourg's "European" area : As a result, not even 42 MEPs weren't present..

Socialist Lord Tomlinson accused the leaders of the PanEuropean Assembly, in its highest body : the "Bureau", to "lack wisdom" by deciding to hold a Debate on an issue that neither the Socialist Chair of the Legal Committee, nor its Socialist "reluctant Rapporteur", did "not want to do", ...

Finally, everybody (critics and supporters alike) was happy to agree, in substance, that the controversial measure "may" gravely violate Human Rights, and therefore, PACE asked Legal Experts of Venice Commission to check UK Government''s plans.

But this might take more than .. 42 Days to do, since PACE's Rapporteur asked the Experts to enlarge their study in a PanEuropean comparison of all that is happening on "anti-terrorism" legislation in 47 CoE Member Countries, including Russia, Turkey and Azerbaidjan..

Bad lack : "The existing 28 days’ detention without charge in the UK is, in comparison with other CoE member countries, one of the most extreme : In Turkey, the period is 7,5 days, in France 6 days, in Russia 5 days, and in .. the U.S. and Canada just 2 and 1 days respectively", denounced Democrat MEP Ms WOLDSETH from Norway..

"Numerous respected human rights organisations, including Liberty and Human Rights Watch, have expressed serious concern" "The proposed legislation ...could easily lead to extensive abuses. ...Detention for 42 days means six weeks in which one is taken away from one’s family, friends, home and livelihood only to be let off without being charged. That will destroy lives and isolate communities", she added.

- "3 years ago, the UK Government sought to increase the period of pre-charge detention from 14 days to 90 days. Not long before that, it had been only 7 days. There was a vigorous debate ...and a ...compromise was reached of 28 days. We have to ask whether there are proper safeguards in place to extend the period to 42 days. I suggest that there are fatal flaws", reminded British Conservative Clappison.

- "What sort of society holds someone in detention for 42 days and does not have to tell the person who is in prison why they are there, or explain the suspicions that arose and led to their detention? What sort of society believes that that is the way to treat its citizens? That is an appalling injustice, ...A 42-day detention period will not make the UK safer. Instead, it will be the first step to giving in to terrorists; it is saying that we are prepared to sacrifice our democratic rights and the principles for which we have stood for centuries", criticized British Liberal Michael Hanckock

"Comments made ...by Norwegian delegates are unfortunate", replied British Socialist MEP Ms.Curtis-Thomas, accusing them to "besmirch the reputation of our police force, which is one of the Best in the World", as she said, believing that "there are significant safeguards ...to ensure that individuals are not subjected to unlawful detention"

PACE "has serious doubts whether ...the draft legislation are in conformity with the ...case-law of the European Court of Human Rights. A lack of ..safeguards may lead to arbitrariness, resulting in breaches of ... liberty and ...right to a fair trial". PACE "is particularly concerned that: ..the judge ..may not be in a position to examine whether there exist reasonable grounds for suspecting that the arrested person has committed an offence;"; that "... representation by a lawyer may be inappropriately restricted or delayed;" that "information on the grounds for suspicion of a person ...may be unduly withheld.. ;" that this "may give rise to arrests without the intention to charge;", and; in general, that "prolonged detention without proper information on the grounds for arrest may constitute inhuman treatment", says Klaus De Vries' Report, adopted with 29 votes against zero.

Records don't say if it took him 42 Days to draft his Report, but, at least, he knew why...

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 ?
