*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- At the eve of an Important G7 Summit on August 2019 at Biarritz, France, the man who made "Global Warming" Non-Believer, US President Trump, nevertheless, think that he might Agree on the relevant "Paris Deal", if some Changes were made, French Environment Minister Francois de Rugy, (Number 2 of the Government, and former National Assembly's President), after being repeatedly Slandered by a Web Media close to USA's Left, was pushed to an UnExpected Resignation, (which seems, apparently, UnDeserved, according to the Latest available News), a Year Before the forthcoming, Crucial US November 2020 Presidential Election.

Earlier on May 2019, at Nearby Metz, an Environment Ministers G7 Summit, contributing to Prepare Biarritz's Final General Declaration, and Chaired by De Rugy, (See "Eurofora"s NewsReports from the spot, with Replies to Our Questions by the French Chairman and USA Environment Protection Agency Director Wheeler, f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/g7environmentclimateandnature.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/g7environmentsummitconclusions.html , etc), Surprisingly brought the US and France closer to an eventual Diplomatic Understanding on this "Hot" Topical Global Issue, depending on a Key Point of Wide Popular Interest, both in USA and in France, as well as in Most Other Countries in the World, (See Infra).

At a Previous G7 in Canada, Headed by Out-Going ("Liberal": Center-LEFT) Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a Big Row vis a vis USA's then In-Coming new President Don Trump was provoked, reportedly, by the Controversial way that Trudeau handled, at the Final Communiqué attributed to that G7, the expected confirmation of Trump's refusal to admit, in practice, the full "Global Warming" Theory, (still Questioned by some Scientists and a Part of the Population, World-wide), and/or certain Key Parts of its alleged Repercussions, particularly concerning what National States should exactly do in order to prevent and/or Face such a Phenomenon.

- Initially, also at Metz, earlier this Year (Comp. Supra), de Rugy had emerged, apparently, rather Beliquoso-looking vis a vis Trump's Dissidence, which had not yet been followed by Other G7 Member Countries, as he had pointed out, inter alia, in his Reply to a relevant Question raised by "Eurofora" at a Press-Point during the 1st Day of that Key 2019 Ministerial G7 Summit on Environment, (See, f.ex., at : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/g7environmentclimateandnature.html, etc).

>>> But, Later-on, the Key French Minister marked an Interesting Development, Evolving Towards an apparently much More Balanced Position, which Acknowledged that US President Don Trump's was, indeed, Conscious of such Climate-related Problems, and Tried to Alleviate them, But by Prefering to use mainly various Other Measures, where USA - France Cooperation, at a Global Level, was Developing quite Consistently, as well as in several Other Areas of Global Environment Protection, often inter-Related, (f.ex. Oceans, Coral Reefs, Bio-Diversity, etc), as De Rugy Replied, in substance, to a new "Eurofora"s Question, at the Official Press Conference on that G7 Ministerial Summit's draft Conclusions, evoking an evolving Dialogue, (See, f.ex., at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/g7environmentsummitconclusions.html, etc).

=> Most Surprisingly, in an almost Parallel Move, the Key USA Representative, EPA's Director, Andrew Wheeler, (who had Earlier told "Eurofora" that the main Substance of related of the Climate-Related "Hot" G7 Issues - including the Delicate Diplomatic matter of the Draft Communiqué's Format : Unified or Separated, which had Previously Triggered Trump's Anger Back in Canada: Comp. Supra- would be Treated OverNight, See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/g7environmentclimateandnature.html), issued a quite Interesting, US Declaration : To put it in a Nutshell, Wheeler added, inter alia, that US President Trump, indeed Cared for Global Environment, including a International Cooperation, in various Important Areas, such as Clean Water, Air, BioDiversity, etc., but Also Climate-related Issues.

+ Advancing even More, he went, later, as far as to Claim that, on 2019, Trump would probably have No Objection, a priori, to Even Agree on the Controversial "Paris' Deal" of 2015, (widely considered as the Main Stumbling Block in US - France, EU and Other Countries' relations on Global Climate), under Certain Conditions, particularly if it was, "re-Negotiated" in a way "that would Level the Playing Field for the US", as he Claimed, (apparently Refering to an Equivalent of the well-known, General Trump's Standard about "Fair" International Trade).

 

metz_g7_environment_2019_de_rugy__wheeler_400 

- For that purpose, the competent US Representative, had diplomatically Raised, Since Metz, (i.e. on May 2019), the Question Whether some "Opportunities for ReNegotiation Arise", or not, for that Controversial 2015 Paris' Deal on Global Climate, Nowadays, i.e., f.ex. During the On-Going G7 Presidendy by France, (which is Due to make also French and USA Presidents, Macron and Trump, Meet Personaly Together, on August 2019 at the G7 Heads of State Summit of Biarritz).

+ Interestingly, that Key Condition about "Leveling the Playing Field", (or, alias, becoming More "Fair"), "for the US", was, indirectly but surely, Associated, by Wheeler at Metz, also with "Economic Prosperity" : I.e., in other Words, with the Notorious Issue f.ex. of the Number of Coal Mines which, in Paris' Deal Theory, Should, or not, Close, Allegedly, for the Sake of "Global Warming" Reduction, and which has Raised a Row among USA People, particuarly also in Comparison with certain Other Countries in the World, including Germany, China, etc.: Many North Americans Believe, f.ex., that Paris' Deal risked to Oblige the US to Close even More Coal Mines than Other Countries, threatening Job Creation, which is a well-known Priority of Trump's Presidency, (as, inter alia, also Typical Web Debates between Trump Followers, at relevant Popular Conservative NewsMedias such as "Breitbart", etc., clearly attest Nowadays).

>>> But, such an Obviously Important Matter, ...Naturally Concerns also European People Today, including in France, Germany, a.o., as "Eurofora" Witnessed, inter alia, also at some Surprizingly "Hot" Debates, inside the European "Federalist" Movement itself, between engaged EU Citizens, NGOs, Experts, Journalists, etc., and Key MEPs, (f.ex. of the "Green" Group), which took place, Right from the Start of the 1st Day of the New EU Parliament's (for the Term of 2019-2024) Plenary Meetings, Organized at the "European Parliamentary Association", Recently in Strasbourg : Indeed, "Traditional" Jobs' Loss perceived Risk, and/or alleged Possibilities for so-called, Alternative "Green" Jobs Creation, (as well as, certainly, "Global Warming" Theory's alleged Seriousness and Urgency), largely Dominated such Topical Debates around the New EU Parliament...

=> In Consequence, it's, precisely, During that Topical USA's Question about a Foreseable "Rise" of "Opportunities for ReNegotiation" on Concrete National Repercussions of such Key Parts of Paris' Deal for Global Climate, that the French Minister of Ecology, de Rugy, Chairman-in-office of the 2019 G7 Summit on Environment Issues, (whom, USA's Wheeler  Recently "Thanked ... for Bringing Together our International Partners", expressing his "Hope" to Find also Elsewhere - f.ex. at the G20 Summit in Japan, etc- "the Constructive Dialogue from his meetings in Metz, France", and "Continue" on that Line), became, Suddenly, Target of Surprisingly Repeated, at a Frenetical Pace, Various Personnal Accusations, by Controversial Web-Media, already Known for Scandal-Mongering Affairs, "Media-Part".

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

+ "Media-Part"'s Founder, former Written Press Top Journalist, Edwy Plenel, was Earlier Known as a Reportedly Atypical "Leftist" of the Past, of alleged "Trotskist" Inspiration (including on Infiltrating Establishment's Bodies, such as, f.ex., the Center-Left, World Known, Newspaper "Le Monde", where he Earlier got a Director's Top Job for a while, Before it notoriously Faced an UnPrecedented Historic Decline, at the Beginning of 2000ies), whose Former Girl-Friend had been reportedly Involved at a Controversial "RainBow Warrior" Ship's Attempt, by "GreenPeace", to Monitor French Nuclear Bomb's Tests in the Pacific Ocean, suspected to have been Attacked by Explosives for which were Accused some amidst the French Secret Service Agents, allegedly Counter-Infiltrating "GreenPeace", ...(Comp. "Eurofora"s Original Photo of "Rainbow Warrior"s Re-Production, at Copenhagen's SeaPort in Denmark, taken during the UN Climate Change Summit there, as Early as already since 2009 : Attached Herewith). In Addition, he became also known as an allleged Pal of USA's Left, in wider

Plenel, Later Founded his WebMedia "MediaPart" on 2008, (i.e. +1 Year Later than "Eurofora" : 2007), which, After a Short Initial Period, during which he made a Large Use of his Personal Notoriety of the Past, Soon launched "Urgent" Alerts about being, allegedly, Threatened by an Imminent Financial Catastrophe, pushing probably even in Bankruptcy, Finally managed to make surface in a More Stable Way, particularly Since a pioneer Press Reform was Introduced by former French President Nicolas Sarkozy to support "On Line Editors", (among Hard Fights against mainlty the "Socialist" Party, which had Tried, even without Explicitly telling so, to Delay that Reform), also with a Financial Participation via Grants Paid by the French State up to 60% of a Web-Editor's New Project, since around 2010 : Even if his "MediaPart" outlet Fiercely Attacked Both Sarkozy's Government Many Times in the Past, Participating also at a Hostile Media Campain against his Former Prime Minister Fillon, at the 2017 Presidential Elections, and mainly Harassing Sarkozy himself, Personaly, until Recently (+2018, etc), Accusing them of Various alleged "Scandals" of Any Kind, Nevertheless, Plenel, at the Same Time, managed, together with his Former Boss from "Le Monde" (Meanwhile Fallen in Disgrace among Most of its Former Readers), Jean-Marie Colombani, to practically Take Over the Mecanism through which such Grants were allocated in Practice to "On-Line Editors", mainly by Exploiting the Old Methods of creating an ad-hoc kind of Trade Union, which took Most Influential Posts among those who Controlled these Public Funds, (that Sarkozy had wished to be "Independent" from the State)...

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

>>> Most Importantly, according also to the Famous Book of Investigative Journalists Pean and Cohen, "The Hidden Face of <<Le Monde>> : From a Counter-Power, to Power Abuse" (2003), in fact Focused on Denouncing mainly Plenel's allegedly Negative Influence on that Previously Prestigious Newspaper, which Afterwards Fell to an Abysmal Low, it was right from the Start that even Plenel's 1st so-called "Scoop" (a 1985 Article accusing the ex-URSS for alleged Moscow Secret Services' Interferences inside France : I.e. a kind of ..."Mueller" Bis, Nowadays !) was part of USA's Deep State's (CIA) Frequently used Methods to Manipulate some Journalists in order to Accuse the Russians for various mischiefs and Disrupt their Relations with Other Countries ! That USA's Deep State's Method, precisely, consisted into Sending some kind of Informations to certain Accomplices in the Press, which could raise a "Scandal" (sic) against their Target.

=> Back on 1985, it all, reportedly, was about Undermining Mitterand - Gorbatcev's relations, as, probably, Nowadays (on 2019), Macron - Trump's relations, mutatis-mutandis.

Plenel's Method, developed later, according to that Critical Book, Always was to Try to Boost the Commercial Selling and Influence of his Media, through various so-called "Revelations of (alleged) Scandals", which Targetted their Victims by Repeated Personal Attacks, Systematically Relayed to Wider Circles by a Network of Accomplices in Radio-TV Medias of the Establishment, withOut any due Regard of what they Replied, until they were Socially "Destroyed", and they Submit, (while also "Terrorising" thus, all others)...

- Indeed, Recently, on July 2019, Plenel's "MediaPart", launched a Series of Various Personal Accusations against De Rugy, suddenly Targetted by a Fast-Track Burst, in "Rafale", of several, each Time Changing, so-called "Revelations" about his allegedly "Scandalous" Behavior into Mixing Public and Private Life, which led into Accusing him, if not for Corruption, at least for an Immorally Abusing personality, who would Irregularly Spend and Waste an Awful Lot of Public Funds, exclusively for his UnJustified Private Interests ! A real method often called "Assassination of a Personality", withOut even giving any Importance to the Victim's desperate Attempts to Reply... This Continued, until he was Obliged to Resign.

F.ex., "Media-Part"s Claims succesively Accused de Rugy for allegedly Usurpating Public Funds for Luxurious Private Diners, including ..."Lobsters" (sic !) and Expensive French "Champagne", as well as to have Wasted an Excessive Amount of Public Funds for too Expensive "Repairs" of his Private Home, while having even alegedly Abused of a Subsidized "Social" Residence, Normaly Destinated to Help Poor People in Need, in Addition to Abusing of his Ministry's "Car Drivers" also for his Private Round Trips Home during Week-Ends, (etc) !

This Fast-Track Petty Slandering persisted "in Rafale", Before De Rugy had the Time to Reply and Prove that, in fact, he was Personaly Allergic to Lobsters and that those Diners' costs were Normal "Representation" spending when he served as President of the National Assembly ; that those "Repairs" Expenses concerned an officially "Classified" Historic Monument's part, which Belonged to the State, and was used by Successive Ministers during their Duties, that even his Predecessor had Found in an Awful State, including the presence of .."Rodents" (sic !); that the alleged "Social" aspect of a Flat he had Briefly bought at an Exceptionaly Hard Moment, just after a recent Divorce, was UnKnown to him, and when he Found out, he immediately Droped it ; and that the aboved-mentioned use of a Extra Driver of the Ministry during Week-Ends, was a routinely Imposed Obligation by the State's recent Regulations for reasons of Security, (etc), as it was, Meanwhile, Attested also by certain relevant Reports by competent Public Authorities, (produced After his Resignation).

In the MeanTime, by a Surprising Coincidence, just after Rugy was pushed to Resign by "MediaPart"'s Slandering, Pean, the main Author of the above-mentioned Book denouncing that Media's Chief, Plenel's abusive methods (Comp. Supra), suddenly Died, at a Paris' Hospital these Days. Previously, "Le Monde"s Colombani and Plenel had persecuted legaly Pean and Cohen, Obliging them to promise to Never Re-Publish again their Critical Book, (whose 1st and Last Edition had become, in consequence, a "Collector's Item" !)

++ But, while De Rugy was Desperatedly Struggling to prove his Innocence, Facing Plenel's "MediaPart"'s Multiple Accusations, added one to another at Fast Pace, instead of Finding any Urgently Needed Help, on the Contrary, he was, Surprisingly, not at all Defended, But totaly Let Down, by an UnExpected and Astonishing Back-Stabbing from "his" own Goverment's Press Spokesperson, who also, indirectly but surely, Found Excuses for his Accusers' Claims, and Refused to "pre-judge about his Innocence", (sic !), as she Ironically said, Playing irresponsible Games with the well-known Principle of any Accused Person's "Presumption of Innocence".

Indeed, Controversial Sibeth Ndiaye, a former Press Attaché (of the "Socialist" Party in the Past), from Senegal, who notoriously took French Nationality Only ...Six (6) Months Before the Presidential Elections of 2017, After which she Immediately applied for, and got an ...Elysée Presidential Palace's Job (sic !), Daughter of a Senegalese Migrant who had Returned from Germany to work in Africa, (after being Marked also for an Astonishingly Hostile, Stubborn, Hateful and Oppressive attitude Against certain Experienced Journalists with a Prolific Production, while, a the Same Time, Scandalously Favoring some UnKnown Web-Video Amateurs, who made her Shavy Personal Publicity), was already Notoriously Criticized for having Earlier Abused of various Pejorative Wordings Against Well Known and Respectable Public Personalities :  Including, f.ex.,  the Famous former EU Parliament's 1st President, Popular Minister and Academician, as well as former Prisoner of NAZI Camps for Deported Jews, where her Family had Tragically Perished, SIMONE VEIL, (that Miss Ndiaye had called ..."MEUF", at a Scandalous "Tweet", when she Died !). But Also the Winner of the Latest EU Parliament's Elections of May 2019 for the Period of 2019-2024, German MEP Manfred WEBER, President of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group (the Biggest of all), that she, suddenly, Accused to be absolutely "IRRELEVANT" (sic !) for any imminent EU Decision on Europe's Top Jobs during that Period, thus Opening the Way for Others among her Alike-Minded Pals, to Even Brutaly Slander Weber, Shortly Afterwards, by calling him ..."Exoplasm" (re-sic !!). => Now she went on to Add to all those Slandering Personal Attacks Faced by De RUGY (Comp. Supra), even her Personal ironic Comment that, "Indeed, We (at Elysée) are Aware of the fact that our Fellow-Citizens doN't use to Eat ...Lobsters Every Day, but Rather ...(Turkish) KEBAB !", as she found "Funny" to Claim.

sibeths_blunder_on_kebab_slyly_hitting_de_rugy_eurofora_screenshot_400 

=> Such a Behavior Triggered a Long Popular Reaction, from Thousands of ...Fed up, and Exasperated French People, who Massively Rushed at the Internet to Demonstrate their Anger and Revolt vis a vis such an UnAcceptable Behavior by someone to whom a European Country so Important as France, had entrusted Serious Duties, which Deserved a much Better Feeling of Resposibilities, in order to Avoid Blatantly Abusing them, as she too often did ! Such Popular Reactions by Many Thousands of Citizens filed an Exceptionaly Longue Liste of Critical Comments at Mainstream Medias, such as "Figaro", etc., and Much More at the Internet, (f.ex. under "Hushtags" such as ...: #Kebab#, etc), including even an Expressive Photo of an ..."Elysée Kebab" Shop !

kebab_elyse_cf._si_bette_case_400 

>>> Meanwhile, De Rugy's Lawyers lodged a Legal Complaint against aggravated "Defamatory" Harassment by Plenel's "MediaPart", while several Medias are Starting to Wonder "Why" a so Important Minister was abandoned and led to UnJustly Resign, just for such a Ridiculous Backyard Slandering, Whether he will be, Now, Rehabilitated by Returning Back to his Job, and Who was Really Behind those Sudden Attacks...

Prime Minister Philippe had just a Working Lunch Meeting with De Rugy, (who, meanwhle, found anew his Elected MP Seat at the National Assembly), But Nobody seems to Know yet, What will Happen, in this regard, at the Forthcoming G7 Summit of Heads of State/Government in Biarritz, on Late August :

=> -  Was, Really, an Exceptional Opportunity to Find a Workable Compromise with the USA for International Cooperation on Global Climate Issues since the "Paris Deal" Scandalously Undermined by a Secret Lobby pursuing its Petty Interests, (apparently Electoralistic : f.ex. US Deep State seeking Trump's Loss at 2020 Presidential Election), to the Detriment of Earth, Nature and Humankind's Future ?

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

At any case, things must be Clear, Balanced, and Fair enough :

- De Rugy is, certainly Not just "an Angel Flying on the Sky". As many, he may have made Various Errors. In addition, "Eurofora" obviously Disagrees with a Great Part of his alleged Views, particularly as far as it concerns, f.ex. BioEthical Issues, of great Topical Importance... 

But, as all Politicians, he also has an Elementary Right to the Presumption of Innocence, the respect of a Basic Deontology of Journalism, (including the Right to Reply), and for a Fair Treatment. In Addition, what is Really at Stake, seems Important enough in order to Critically Investigate the Main Facts.

 + And, from the Other Side, Edwy Plenel, isN"t, No more, "the Devil in personification"... On the Contrary, he is an accomplished Journalist, Strongly Claiming to Defend the Right to Criticize any Public Power for all, as well as for Critical, Independent Investigations of the Facts, and "Eurofora" has Often Met him, (at the CoE, elsewhere in Strasbourg, in Conferences, Lectures or Other Events, particularly on Press/Journalism Issues), Questioned him, participated in a Dialogue with him, Wrote and Published about him and the Answers he gave us, and We Intend to Continue to do so, as long as he wishes to be actively involved, particularly in Innovative Web Medias, that, we hope, will still be Long enough... 

But when it comes to some fierce Attacks "ad Hominem", Risking to Destroy the Personality of someone apparently Submitted to UnFair Treatment, while, also, the People have a Right to clearly Know what it might be really at Stake in certain Multifacet Affairs affecting various Important Aspects of Socio-Political Life, (some of which may be still in the Dark for many), he knows that "Eurofora"'s elementary Duty is simply to Critically and Independently Investigate the main Facts, and Report at least the essentials, for Public Dialogue, (which is a Valuable Tool for any Truth).

Currently, France and a Great Part of Europe, are hardly hit by a Multi-Historic Records' Breaking, Exceptional Heatwave, almost Alike a USA's Big Part, (including emblematic Cities such as Paris and Strasbourg etc, as well as Washington DC, New York, Chicago, Saint Louis, etc). An Extreme Weather Εvent, nick-named "Omega" (as the Design of Greek Letter : Ω), made out of a "High Pressure", Hot Center, Surrounded by Stormy/Rainy, Fresh areas, Suspected since the Historic 2003 Killer Heatwave in France (which left More than 15.000 Dead, Threatening even the Country's Electricity Independence by Lack of ReFreshing Water for Nuclear Stations), and a subsequent Moscow 2010 Catastrophic Heatwave, (which Suffocated Russia's Capital, while also Threatening Civil and Military Nuclear Installations, Wheat Production, etc), was Reported also on 2019 in these incidents, closely Followed by China, who notoriously is the Number 1 Historic Supporter in the World of nearby Geneva negociated and signed UNO's 1978 Treaty agaist Hostile Modifications of the Natural Environment (ENMOD). At least in Europe, this July 2019 EWE's Heatwave Pick formed a spectacularly Straight Line between Spain and S/W. Germany, with France in the Middle, (See Characteristic relevant Graphic MAP, Herewith).

By a Coicidence, however, Both France's and US Presidents' personal Summer Holidays' usual Residences, at Bregancon's Fortifications (Cote d'Ajur) and Lagos (Florida : Initially Threatened), respectively, were, reportedly Excluded from these 2019 Heatwaves, (with Macron effectively Heading towards that, while Trump hang still around Wash.DC and his New York Tower has faced even a Manhattan's Electricity Cut)... Exceptionally too, at PanEuropean CoE's and EU Parliament Plenaries', as well as Shenghen System Secretariat's and EUROCORPS' Headquarters in Strasbourg, the Heatwave's projected End was Postponed for Later-on, while, at another Exceptional Incident, the often Brussels' EU Council and Commisson (as well as NATO) HQ's related, High-Tech. "Thalys" Railway Company reportedly Stopped its Travels for 1 or 2 Days, claiming "Infrastructure" Problems caused by that Heatwave.

 politkovskaya_gongadze_adali_400

Hu Jia's prize brings SAKHAROV's wife to "EuroFora" on murders of Journalists Politkofskaya, Gongadze and Adali :

- Elena Bonner : "All Journalists' murders must be fully investigated", without Double Standards.                                                                                    

During a special Mega-Event to celebrate 20 Years of SAKHAROV Prize for "Freedom of Thought", attributed in 2008 by EU Parliament to jailed Chinese Cyber-Dissident Hu JIA, the move was reinforced by strongly criticizing the persisting impunity in three cases of Journalists' Murders, such as POLITKOVSKAYA in Russia, GONGADZE in Ukraine, and ADALI in Turkish-occupied part of Cyprus.

Any bureaucratic doubt about whether Cyber-dissidents like Hu JIA might have, or not, a right to be protected as all Journalists must be, particularly when they take risks to search, find and publish original and critical News on issues of general interest to the society, could not resist to the emotion provoked by the message of his Wife, Zeng JINYAN spectacularly transmitted at a big screen in EU Parliament's hemicycle :

- "The most important and most interesting thing he did was to ... say the Truth :.. to write about the phenomena he observed... He never stopped Publishing.. on websites, so that the Public could learn about the reality .. and understand it.  In my view, this has been his greatest contribution", stressed the young wife of the jailed man, eager to cite also the cases of other critical journalists who faced various kinds of "harassment".

 - "Welcoming all those who have suffered for defending Human Rights", EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING, who had invited to Strasbourg all former Sakharov prize-winners from various Countries throughout the World, said that "China needs Europe, and Europe needs China : A great nation" with which "we want to have a good relationship", "association and ..friendship". "But we are never going to stop our fight for Human Rights, and No Government can expect this from us".

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of Peace, if Human Rights are left out. In fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.

    It's in this spirit that MEPs adopted, on Thursday, a Resolution denouncing that "the criminal
investigation and trial following the murder of (a) Journalist ...raises serious concerns with regard to transparency and respect for the rule of law", when a "brutal killing has not yet been fully investigated and solved in a satisfactory way".

    The text refered to dissident Journalist "Anna POLITOVSKAYA", a critic of Tchechen conflict, killed some years ago in Moscow, where Russian Authorities have found, arrested and are currently judging two executants, while also searching to arrest also a 3rd one, allegedly escaped in Belgium. But they have not yet found the instigators.

     Similar texts were adopted recently also on dissident Ukranian Journalist Georgiy GONGADZE's murder, for which Ukranian Authorities have at least found, arrested and condemned 2 executants to 12 and 13 Years of jail, but not yet the instigators. For that purpose, they recently accepted an International Experts team to participate to the investigations.     

But, it's only for the Murder of dissident Turkish Cypriot Journalist ADALI, in the occupied territories of Cyprus, that Turkey has NOT yet found ANYONE responsible, and even claimed recently inside CoE that it would be "impossible" to do so !    

These astonishing differences exist despite the fact that ECHR condemned alike Ukraine and Turkey with 2 Judgements on the same year : 2005, for the murders of  Journalists GONGADZE and ADALI, strong critics of Corruption in Ukraine, and of Ankara's policies on mass-influx of Turkish Settlers in the Occupied Territories of Cyprus, respectively.    

Regarless of that, CoE's Committee of Ministers, who is entrusted with the duty to supervise execution of ECHR's judgements, has just asked Ukraine's Government to reply to further questions on Gongadze's murder before March 2009, while Turkey, curiously, got a longer postponement for answering questions on Adali's murder, until June...   

A comparison of these cases, raises serious questions about Double Standards :

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

On TRANSPARENCY :
--------------------------
    On Gongadze's murder, CoE's body speaks even about the participation of
"an INTERNATIONAL group of Experts" in the Investigation, (f.ex. of "Tape Recordings"), accepted by Ukraine.
    On the contrary, on Adali's murder, CoE is obliged to repeatedly ask (for a 2nd
time) Turkey whether, at least, it informed the victims' Family, or not...
------------------------------
- On EFFICIENCY :
-----------------------
On Gongadze's murder, CoE formally "recalls that the Committee (of Ministers) ..URGED the Ukranian authorities.. to TAKE ALL NECESSARY INVESTIGATIVE STEPS TO ACHIEVE CONCRETE and VISIBLE RESULTS in the INVESTIGATION, aimed at the Identification of the INSTIGATORS and Organisers of the Murder", and "STRONGLY INVITED the Ukranian Authorities to provide information on the PROGRESS IN THE INVESTIGATION", before MARCH 2009.

But, on Adali's murder, on the contrary, CoE's body merely .. "took note" of the "arguments presented by" Cyprus, which denounce the absence of any proof of new "investigation" by Turkey. Following Turkey's own suggestion (!), it simply "noted" that there is "no limitation period" for "any new element" to "lead potentialy (sic !) to a Re-Opening of the Investigation". Without saying who might find any such "new" fact, since Turkey stoped searching... It also POSTPONED the issue until .. JUNE  !
-----------------------
 - On the PUNISHMENT OF THOSE RESPONSIBLE :
----------------------
 -  On Gongadze's murder case, Ukranian Authorities already arrested and condemned, at least 2 suspects, to 12 and 13 Years of jail. And on Politkovskaya's murder at least 2 suspects are judged, and a 3rd one "wanted".

On the contrary, on Adali's murder case, the Turkish authorities simply claim that "it had not been possible to obtain new .. information .. on the basis of which criminal charges could be brought against ANY person" !...

Moreover,  a LETTER sent by Turkey ...2 Years after CoE's 2006 call to re-investigate anew Adali's murder case, is totally EMPTY of Facts ! As Cypus' Delegation denounced earlier, Turkey's Letter ONLY CLAIMS that a "New Investigation" was made without any result, but does NOT even cite ANY FACT to prove it :

F.ex.,on the crucial issue of the "MOTIVATIONS" behind Adali's murder, noted by ECHR, Turkey MERELY CLAIMS that "all allegations  were investigated; without result", but OMITS ANY FACT TO PROVE IT !..(It doesn't even remind which were these "allegations").. .

+ On ECHR's astonishment that the Turkish Occupation regime didn't produce any "BALLISTIC REPORT" on the Shots which murdered Adali, Turkey again repeats, 12 years later, that, still, even until now, "it  was not possible to obtain the BalisticReport"...

- As for the astonishing absence of key-WITNESSES' Testimonies, denounced by ECHR, Turkey agains repeats various pretexts avoiding to reveal anything, (Fex. that a person "left" the Occupied Territories  "on 2002", or that another witness was heard, but without revealing nothing of what he said, etc).

Turkey obviously "FAILS TO MEET THE CRITICISM made BY THE COURT" for lack of any efficient Investigation in Adali's case, concluded Cyprus' Government.
---------------------------------------------
Replying to our Question which COMPARED these 3 outstanding cases of "JOURNALISTS MURDERS", Adali, Gongadze and Politkovskaya, in order to avoid "Double Standards" by asking from Ukraine and Russia more than what is asked EU candidate Turkey, many European personalities were critical /

They criticised Ankara's recent claim at the CoE to stop investigating, because it would be "impossible to find anyone" responsible for the 5 bullet shots which killed Kutlu ADALI in front of his Family Home, contrary to the other two Journalists' murders, where Ukraine and Russia at least arrested the executants, searching now for the instigators :

    - "Where was that ? In Turkish Occupied Cyprus ? WITHOUT ANY DOUBT : Any murder of Journalist should be investigated in full ! All these Murders must be investigated !", replied the famous SAKHAROV's wife, Elena BONNER to our question on Adali's case, compared to Gongadze and Politofskaya.

    Elena Bonner spoke us EXCLUSIVELY shortly after being honored by the President
of EU Parliament on the occasion of 20 Years of her husband's SAKHAROV Prize.

    A strong personality, Sakharov's wife even had to struggle against an anonymous EU staffer who, astonishingly, tried to stop her speaking when h heard our question on "Turkey" (!) : - "Please, let me translate, she continues
speaking, don't stop us !", had to cry Sakharov's daughter, (a Journalist
herself), who was translating her mothers' reply, (obliged to speak louder to
make her voice heard despite the harassment).. (= + Audio Proof !)

    Earlier, Elena Bonner also fustigated "Double Standards" at another case, on
Western countries' attitude vis a vis Kosovo and the Kurds : -F.ex. "You have
recognized a few 400.000 Kosovars as an "independent" country, but you still
deny that to 30 millions of Kurds in Turkey !", she denounced.
-----------------------------
    - "This (ADALI's murder) is an issue which should be pursued by the Committee
for Human Rights. That's why we have one, and it's its duty to examine cases of
Journalists' murders as the one you referred to. You should bring the case in
front of that Committee", suggested in reply to our question on Adali, EU
Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert POETTERING.

    - "It's impossible  to achieve goals of PEACE, if HUMAN RIGHTS are left out :
in fact, Peace and Human Rights are intrinsequaly linked", added POETTERING.
--------------------------------------
    + "For us (European/International Federation of Journalists) it's clear :
Whenever a Journalist is Murdered, the Investigation should continue until
those Responsible are found !", replied earlier to another question on ADALI
EFJ/IFJ's Secretary General, Aidan WHITE.

    Speaking as a matter of General Principle, White asked us for "concrete data"
on the execution of ECHR's judgement on Adali case, in order to "look at it in
depth" and "make a formal statement", in comparison with the other Murdered
Journalist case, also pending at CoE's  Ministers for completing its execution,
on Ukranian Gongadze.
----------------------------------------------------
     From EU Rapporteur on Human Rights, vice-President of EU Parliament Liberties' Committee, MEP Giusto CATANIA, we were told that, since there is an ECHR judgement in both Adali and Gongadge's cases, "Turkey must naturally execute the judgement and make a full and efficient investigation, until those responsible for the Journalist's murder are found and punished".

    Even if "we (Catania's "EuroLeft" Group) support Turkey's EU perspectives, this does not mean that Ankara should not behave properly. On the contrary, it means that they have to meet tough conditions, particularly on Human Rights", was added on the occasion of Adali's murder case.

    Moreover, "since you raise the issue of Mr. Adali's muder as a part of a Series of Journalist's murders, including fex. Gongadze, Politkovskaya, ao., tthen we (EU) could also act together with CoE's Commissioner on Human Rights, Thomas HAMMARBERG, it was suggested.

    - "We (EU) must step up efforts against the problem of IMPUNITY : Real Peace cannot exist without Justice",  stressed also this week at EU Parliament in Strasbourg, French Minister on Human Rights, Mrs Rama YADE.
