*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- USA, China, Italy, Russia, Brazil, Iran, South Korea, etc., are Nowadays among those Countries on which Most Establishment's Medias usually Point an Accusing Finger, concerning the Deadly Virus' reportedly Worse Impact, even if Often they do that quite Vaguely. On the Contrary, a lot of Other Countries are either Presented, regularly, as more or less Ordinary cases, if they are not Even Ommitted from being mentioned at all...

But the Reality of Facts is completely Different ! Particularly if one takes into account the, effectively, Worse Impact of the Virus : i.e. Deaths, and the most Accurate, Fair and Meaningful way to Measure it : i.e. in Proportion to Each Country's Population.

=> Then, all out of a Sudden, various "Surprises" pop-up, Both in Absolute and in Relative terms, (i.e. in Comparison with Other Counties) !

- F.ex.: - Which Country has the Worst Virus' Death Rate in the World ?

Guessing by the main Medias-induced Impressions, one would say, most probably : - The USA, or Italy, may be (soon) Russia or Brazil, etc.

>>> In Fact, it's Nobody among them ! Not Even Any Other Country among those which are Usually Citted by those Medias.

=>  On the Contrary, it's someone that Nobody would guess, a priori : ...Belgium ! The main EU Capital, indeed, currently, Figures at the 1st Place in the whole World for the Most Numerous Deaths by the Virus, in Proportion to its Population, with about 800 Victims per 1 Million, (Followed, in Big Distance, by Spain, with about 600) !

Italy comes Only Afterwards (i.e. 3rd), with about 530 Victims per Million, (almost Equal to the UK, which is 4rth).

>>> As for USA, Despite some False Appearances, it still stands, in Fact, Far Away : just at the ...9th Place, with 280 Victims (i.e. Almost the Half of Italy !) per 1 Million of Population, (situated Between Ireland : 321, and Switzerland : 222)...     

Brazil, (for which Establishment's Medias recently Claimed that it would be so Bad, that it Risked to reach, soon, the 3rd Place in the World, close to Russia),  in Fact, (with Only 85 Victims per Million), is situated at the ... 18th (EIGHTEENTH) Place !

It's Immediately Followed by Austria (with 71 Victims per Million), and is, still, Much Better than ...Germany, which is Notoriously considered to be an Exceptionaly "Good Case" in Europe, particularly by having (with just 97 Victims per million) far Less Deaths than All Other Big EU Countries, ...

Iran too, Notoriously cited as Exceptionaly Hardly Hit by the Deadly Virus, in Fact, stands Near Brazil, even slightly Better, at the 17th Place, (with 87 Deaths per Million), i.e. Also ByPassing Germany, (Comp. Supra).

And Russia, often Cited Recently as having Become a very "Bad" case, (Comp. Supra) ?

UnExpectedly, Russia still Stands at the ...44th Place, with Only 19 Deaths per Million, situated Between Lithuania (21)  and Belarus (18), Not Far away from Greece, which is Considered to be a Fairly Medium/Good case, (coming at the 49th Place, with Only 15 Deaths per Million).

As for South Korea, (which Twice Sky-Rocketed in Medias' News Headlines as a Top "Hot-Spot" of this Virus' Crisis), it's Placed Only ...75th, (with Only 5 Victims per Million).

+ To Complete this "Reality Test", even China, (Widely Known as the Origin of that Virus), Now stands at the ...93rd Place, (with Only 3 Victims per Million) !

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

Last, but Not Least, Even in Absolute terms, the EU (with the UK) has, still Nowadays, much More People Killed by that Virus (about 160.000) than the USA (just about 92.000)... And, also the Wider Europe, in general, (i.e. the EU Together with Other Eastern European Countries and Russia, etc), has about 168.000 People Killed, Compared to just about 124.500 in Americas, (i.e. USA + Canada + Latin America).

In other words, the European People, after having been, Earlier, Scandalously Abandoned to Massive Infections by imported Virus, withOut Any Timely Protection, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/deadlyvirusheadstoeucore.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/virusriskbutnoeuprotection.html + http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/delaytoprotecteupeoplefromvirus.html, etc), Still Remain, Today, the "EpiCenter" of the World, in terms of Tragic Losses of Human Lives !

So that it does'Nt Serve Anything to Vainly and Misleadingly, Too Often Attempt to Blame ...Xi's China, Trump's USA, Bolsonaro's Brasil, and/or Putin's Russia, (etc), as Establishment Medias' Too Easy "Scape-Goats",  in order to so Clumsily try to Hide some Pseudo-"Europeans"' Responsibilities, and/or the Obvious Need to Urgently Act, at last, Efficiently in order to Save the Threatened Lives of many innocent European People...

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.
