*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- While in Europe BioEthical Controversies on "Same Sex Marriage" practically wait the Results of the forthcoming German Election and a Judgement by the Constitutional Court at nearby Karlsruhe, in the US, with an Exceptionaly Important Vote, Intensively covered by Mainstream Medias, American People launched a Strong, Landmark Symbol, of Topical World-wide Significance, (given on-going Developments at Nearby Geneva's UN bodies, as well as in various  European Countries, even in other Continents, including Africa, etc) :


In relation to such Topical and Crucial BioEthical Issues, they Voted, (with a Bigger Lead than expected), for a pro-Natural Family Senator, strongly Opposed to controversial and unpopular "Same Sex Marriage", including Submission of Children to the Power of Homosexual Strangers under "Adoption" Pretext, and inevitably Pushing towards the Atrocity of "Surrogate Mothers" InHuman Exploitation, added to Artificial Procreation of Human Beings, open to Manipulation by some Technocratic Lobbies, Dangerous for all Humankind :


- The former Chief Justice Roy Moore, at North America's "Heartlands" of Alabama State, Famous for having Twice Dared Sacrifice even his Top Job (where he had been Twice Elected by a Majority of People, but Dismissed by a bunch of Bureaucrats for Disobeying) for the Sake of Moral Socio-Cultural Values : I.e. mainly by Resisting and Refusing to Submit to controversial Former US President Barack Hussein Obama's notorious attempts to Impose (Not Only Inside the U.S., but even accross Europe, Africa and Worldwide !) his very Rich Sponsors' Controversial, UnPopular and Dangerous (Comp. Supra) pro-"Same Sex Marriage" Agenda, including even Childrens' submission to Homosexuals and/or Artificial Births, up to 2015-2016.


Spectacularly, Today's much Stronger Popular Support to Frontrunner Judge Moore was miracularly achieved Despite several Millions $ spend by Establishment's Lobbies in pre-Electoral Propaganda etc. against him (i.e. about  ... X 16 Times More Money than he used !), and Washington DC "Elites"' Loud Backing of his main Competitor, L.Strange, including the Out-going USA Senate Majority Chief, the controversial McConnell, recently Criticized by most Trump's supporters and other Conservatives for allegedly Dragging his feet, Delaying or Watering Down, and even Failing to endorse many among the New US President's main Decisions, of key Importance to the Political Agenda for which he was directly Elected by the People US-Wide since November 2016, (See more Infra).


Competitor L. Stranger had reportedly spend as much as ... 84 % of the Money used by All 9 Candidates in Today's Vote, as Experienced, Election-Specialized "BallotPedia" NGO attested, and 16 Times More than Moore, but this wasn't enough to curb the latter's stronger Popularity...


- "This race isn’t going to be decided by Washington Lobbyists cutting Big Checks. It's going to be decided by the Retired Veteran sending in $50 from his Social Security check. By the single Mom who wants ...(for) her children a better life and goes online ...NOT the Swamp dwellers of Washington" DC, Moore reportedly stressed.  Because “Judge Moore isn’t Washington’s Wandidate, he is the People’s candidate. He will ... represent the People of this State, Not special Interest groups or be beholden to any Power Brokers", added Moore's Campaign Manager, former GOP's Chairman in Alabama, Bill Armistead : - Thus,  He "Answers to God and the People ... No one else.”

Indeed, Moore (a Deeply Religious Man, notorious also for having kept Moyse's "Decalog" inside his former Court Office, until he was Dismissed for that !), Succeeded, Today, an UnExpectedly Strong Democratic Victory, (by a Symbolic Coincidence, on the Same Day traditionally Dedicated to the 1st Letter of Saint Paul to Corinthus' People, speaking of "God who gives us the Victory", and to Bible's ancient Psalm No 117, which points at "Victory, in the Homes of the Just", as well as for Christ's Mother, Holy Mary's Assumption to Heaven) :


=>  He came very Clearly First among Many GOP's Candidates, with About 41 % of the Popular Vote, against Only 31% to his main Competitor, Luther Strange, followed by almost 20% also to anOther Anti-Establishment Candidate, Mo Brooks, and by another Christian Candidate, Trip Pittman, who got about 6%, (etc).

(Alabama Election, as seen by pro-Trump -Right Side Broadcasting Network: RSBN)

 ----------------

+ Moreover, Roy Moore proved to have a Wide-spread Influence, by being Voted at the 1st place accross 60 out of the 67 Counties of Alabama State, while Stranger did so only in 5 Counties, and Brook in 2.

Both Brooks and Pittman, as convinced Anti-Establishment Politicians, are, normaly, expected to Join and support Moore at a Final Vote against Stranger alone, Later on September, due to declare the Official GOP's Candidate in a December 2017 Election of Alabama's New Senator. (A pure Formality, since, Democrats/Socialists, traditionaly haveN't any chance in Alabama, an Historically Conservative state). Some Polls have already started to foresee a Clear Majority for Moore, with an even Bigger Difference vis a vis Strange, in the forthcoming Final Vote of September 2017, reaching about 51% against 32% (UPDATED).

 

update__opinion_poll_on_alabama_senator_election_primary_final_round_400


A fortiori, when L.Strange has been repeatedly Criticized for having been earlier Appointed (and Not Elected) as Senator (in replacement of J. Session's Nomination as USA's Attorney General), by former Alabama Governor Bentley, nowadays Disgraced, that he had the Duty to Check for various Corruption charges, so that many Suspect an UnEthical Deal... On the Contrary, Chief Justice Moore has notoriously Sacrificed Twice his Career for the Sake of certain Moral and Social Values, (Comp. Supra).


 + "The Civil Rights Issue of our Time" is "Religious Freedom", stressed afterwards Roy Moore, who was Voted 1st by the People of Alabama State, by a Timely Coincidence, shortly after New US President Don Trump has just chosen the Governor of Kansas, former Long-Time Congressman and Senator, Sam Brownback, to become USA's new Ambassador at large for Religious Freedom throughout the World. Brownback, who previously served also as Chairman of Senate's Foreign Affairs Committee, during Conservative former US President GWBush's 2nd Mandate (from 2005), was well known also for his stance on BioEthical Issues, including Refusal of Genetic Manipulation on Human Embryos, etc.


 - Trump, despite having been, Earlier, Pushed by Establishment's Out-going Senate GOP Chief McConnell (Comp. Supra), to initially endorse L.Stranger, nevertheless, Immediately after Judge Moore's Victory, he Warmly "Congratulated" the FrontRunner, in a written comment on this "Exciting" Vote, as he observed.

 

  Meanwhle, Roy Moore was Endorsed by Famous Actor Chuck Norris, and Popular Conservative Politician Sarah Palin, former Governor of Alaska and GOP nominee for US vice-President, an Ally of Trump, as well as by a former Alabama Governor. : - "The Judge has Proven he's Not Afraid of a Fight for what is Right, and he's ready to take on DC's Swamp Monsters", wrote Palin. 


+ Both Anti-Establishment Candidates Moore and Brook want to Change a controversial Practice in USA's Senate which Hinders even an Absolute Majority of more than 51% to adopt New Laws, unless a Trans-Parties Qualified Super-Majority of at least 60% Agrees to do so, practicaly Obliging the Right to make Concessions to the Left, that Trump has repeatedly Denounced, Criticizing such Non-Constitutional practices to be Against Democracy and Choices Freely Voted by the People. On the Contrary, L. Strange has signed an Opposite Call to Keep that Controversial Brake even longer.


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

 + GENEVA (UN) QUESTIONS :

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


>>> The World-wide, Symbolic but Timely, Political Interest in Alabama's stronger than expected Electoral Victory of Judge Moore, stems also from the Fact that, a few Days Earlier, one of the most Important Global NGO's supporting Natural Families (IOF, Headquartered at Illinois), had just Criticized an Ambiguous Wording by an USA Representative, speaking Recently at UNO's European Headquarters, at nearby Geneva, which appeared as if he had, indirectly but surely, endorsed the Controversial and UnPopular "Same Sex Marriage" (Comp. Supra), even After the January 21, 2017, start of New US President Don Trump's official mandate. That official had reportedly called for "International Recognition of <<Diversity of Family Types>>", and Claimed that UNO Member Countries "must consider All Types of Loving Families that exist Today", (etc).


It isn't yet clear if that controversial representative might, eventually, be one among those Many Diplomats, Experts, Bureaucrats, etc., previously Appointed by Barack Hussein Obama, and remaining still UnChanged, Neither Replaced by a New one, chosen by the New US President Don Trump's Administation, (Such qui-pro-quo have already been Denounced several times, recently, f.ex. with another Obama's era US Ambassador in Romania, who had also attempted to Exert Pressure against a Draft Law supported by the Absolute Majority of MPs inside Bucarest's Parliament, claiming of an Obama's written Instruction to undermine Natural Family, and push for SSM, "Adoption" of Children by Homosexuals, etc)


But, at any case, as things stand, such an Incident risked to give the Impression that Trump's New US Administration might, eventually, Continue Barack Hussein Obama's Controversial Attempts to Impose by Forceps, Worldwide, his Rich Sponsors' Agenda for "Same Sex Marriages", "Adoption" of Children by Homosexual couples, etc., which would also Intensify the Pressure for the Horrible "Surrogate Mothers'" Exploitation, added to Artificial Procreation of Human Beings controlled by Technocrats, (Given Homo's Incapacity for Natural Births), with obvious Dangers for Humankind.


It seems plausible that, apparently, Trump's Administration wouldn't have, a priori, an obvious and crystal-clear Position on the "Same Sex Marriage" Controversy, which has Shaken the USA (as well as France, and other European Countries, but also Africa, etc) during Obama's former Administration.

Some Claim that Trump, who had said, during the 2016 Electoral Campaign, that he was Willing to "Consider" to push Constitutional Amendments able to overturn a Controversial and UnPopular USA Supreme Court's ruling which Imposed "SSM" for the 1st Time in History, (adopted with Only 1 Vote of Pseudo-"Majority", almost at the Same Period that a BioEthically strong and Experienced supreme Judge suddenly Died, under Unclear and still Debated Circumstances).

However, shortly after his November 2016 Electoral Win, he would have expressed the view (in Statements to a Liberal/Socialist Media of the Establishment) that, even against his preferences (and Despite Most Other GOP Candidates' declared wish to Restore the Natural Family definition as between a Man and a Woman, as it Always was before), nevertheless, that UnPopular Decision, taken during Obama's era, might have become Permanent.

Therefore, at any case, Today, Judge Roy Moore's Stronger than Expected Victory in this, Exceptionaly Important, Primary Vote for a New Senator from Alabama, given his Strong Opposition to the Controversial "Same Sex Marriage" policies of Obama, (to the point that he even Sacrificed his own Job, in order Not to be Obliged to Execute something so Radically Against his Religious, Social and Ethical Beliefs and Values : Comp. Supra), comes Timely in order to Incite Don Trump to Hold Firm in his Original Intention (shared also by Most other GOP Candidates to the 2016 US Presidential Election) to consider practical ways to Overturn Obama's policies in this Crucial BioEthical Issue, as well as in various others.


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

+ GERMAN ELECTIONS :
----------------------------------------------

+ Meanwhile, the Symbolic American People's Vote for a Firm Supporter of Natural Family comes at a very Timely moment for Europe, where the recent BioEthical Controversy over "Same Sex Marriage" practicaly awaits the Results of the forthcoming German Election of September 2017 and a ruling by the Constitutional Court at nearby Karlsruhe, if the scheduled Entry into Force of a suprisingly Hasty, Last-Minute adopted Bill at a Divided Bundestag, will go on, or Not, from October (i.e. After the Election) :


German Chancelor Angie Merkel was, in fact, Pressured, earlier on June, by Socialist Party's Top Candidate, Martin Schulz's (a former EU Parliament's President until 2016) attempt to broker a Deal not only with the "Left" and the "Greens", (usual Allies of the Socialists, in the Past), but also with the "Liberals", (a usual Ally of Merkel's ChristianDemocrats until now), with the Only Exception of the Rightist "Alternative", on the Basis, inter alia, also of the Imposal of the "Same Sex Marriage", (including Controversial and UnPopular Submission of Children to the Power of Homosexual Strangers, under Pretext of "Adoption", obviously Dagerous even for Humankind, because of the Risk for any Technocratic Lobby to Exploit Homosexuals' Inability to give Natural Births, and thus Pushing for Horrible practices of "Surrogate Mothers" and/or Artificial Techniques for Procreation of Human beings.


That Sudden move by the "Socialists"' move might have been provoked by their Fear for the New Rightist Party "Alternative" to very probably succeed, for the 1st Time in History, to Enter inside the German Parliament after the September 2017 Elections, with a Political Agenda Similar to that of the Large Majority of ChristianDemocrat/EPP MPs and Voters on certain Key points, (despite disagreements in other), including, particularly, Support to Natural Family.


Merkel rapidly reacted to Schultz's move by unexpectedly declaring, in a much publicized Press Interview, that she might have been convinced, (particularly by a Couple of Lesbians to whom some Local/Regional Authorities in a Province had curiously allowed to serve as a kind of "Foster Family" for more than 10 Children born by various Other People), to eventualy Consider a possible Decision on that matter, sooner of later.
Immediately after that, the Bundestag's Committee for Legal affairs, made a Sudden "U-Turn", Abandoning its Long-Standing Refusal to allow such a Controversial Decision, and pushed to Put that matter, for the 1st Time, in a Hastily drafted Agenda of the Plenary for Vote ...at the very Last Day (sic !) of this Out-Going Parliament, just Before the Recess for the forthcoming Elections, at the End of June, a Friday, 30 June 2017...


But, while several Establishment's Media had Claimed (Based only on a Few, Isolated Polls, among the Rare made on such a Controversial Issue during the Last 10 Years) that a Wide Landslide of pro-"Same Sex Marriage" adepts would have Conquered the Bundestag, on the Contrary, Facts proved that the out-going German Parliament was, in fact, sharply and profoundly Divided on that matter : In particular, the Governing ChristianDemocrat/EPP Party of CDU/CSU (whose attitude was closely Watched by many Political Observers) Voted "NO", i.e. Against "Same Sex Marriage", at a Very Large super-Majority of about 4/5 : = 75 % of its MPs, (Merkel included herself) ! 


In Addition, 3% of the Governing Party's MPs had Abstained or Deserted the Out-going Bundestag on its Last Day. So that it's Only a Tiny Minority of Less than about 24% of CDU/CSU MPs who Accepted that Controversial, Last-Minute Move from the Left Side of the German Parliament, made by the "Socialist", Leftist and "Green" MPs, who Voted for Controversial "Same Sex Marriage", (among whom were, However, also some Abstentions/Absents).


This Less than 24% Minority of Dissident CDU/CSU MP was Nothing New, since it was mainly led by Ursula Von der Leyen, currently Minister of Defense, who had Also led, in the Past, a Failed Attempt to Impose Massive Pre-Natal Genetic "Tests" on Pregnant Women and Human Embryos, that Many considered both a Useless Waste and/or a Dangerous "Slipery Slope" step towards a Risk of "Selection", racist "Eugenism" and/or Genetic Manipulations on Births of Human Beings ; I.e. a BioEthical Controversy obviously Close to that of Today's "Same Sex Marriage" Controversy (Comp. Supra), which explains why that Earlier Attempt had been finaly Rejected by a very Strong Majority of ChristianDemocrat Representatives at the German Governing Party's Annual Congress of 2010, at nearby Karlsruhe, (See "Eurofora"s NewsReports from that CDU "Partei Tag", on the spot, f.ex. at : ...).


Von Leyen has been cited by some, during several years, as an eventual "Successor" to Merkel, but, more recently, it's also the CDU's vice-President and Head of the Party in nearby Rhineland-Palatinate Federated State (Länder), former long-time MP Julia Clockner, who was cited for that same hypothesis, in the Future, who, on the Contrary, is known to be Against Genetic Manipulations of Human Embryos, "SSM", etc., because of her stance in Favor of BioEthical Values. At least in Theory, Clockner could have even become President of Rhineland-Palatinate's Federated State, if she had accepted a Local Coalition of ChristianDemocrats not only with the Liberals, but also with the Alternative Party of the Rightists, who seem, However, still Excluded from any Foreseable Political Deal with any among Establishment's Parties until now.


Among that Tiny Minority of CDU/CSU MPs who Betrayed their Party's and its Voters' Long-Standing Positions and Values who always supported the Natural Family, composed by a Man and a Woman, as well as Natural Births, was also an Atypical, ... Turkish-origin and even Muslim MP, Miss Cemile (ou Tzemil) Gioussouf (or Yioussouf/Yusuf).


Miss Gioussouf (or Yioussouf/Yusuf), of Turkish cultural origin, and a Muslim organized in Trans-National Islamic Networks, was chosen Back on 2013 to become the 1st ever ..."Christian"Democrat MP, after having, reportedly "Studied" ..."Islamic science" (sic !) in the NRW Region of Germany, (there where more than 1.000 Poor Young German Girls were Brutally Assaulted and some Raped by Gangs of Muslim Mass Asylum Seekers/irregular Migrants who Tresspassed in Europe through Turkey on 2015-2016, provoking a Scandal for the Passivity or alleged Complicity of the Regional Police Chiefs, mainly "Socialists", who blatantly Failed to Protect the Victims, See CoE's Debate in Strasbourg at : ...). She was always Hired in Jobs paid by Public (State) Funds, in Government-controlled Administrations, even during the Latest, big Economic Crisis, which left Many European People Jobless or in Poverty, reportedly in order to Deal Only with other Turkish or assimilated origin Foreign Migrants : A comfortable Carriere Pathway, already used in the Past, also by Other Turkish-origin Migrants, in order to immediately Find a quite well-paid and safe Job in the Public (State) sector, with obvious potential for Clientelism, shortly Afterwards Exploited in a Local and later Germany-wide Political Career, as f.ex. Mr Ozdemir of the "Greens", and now Miss Youssouf (or Gioussouf)


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


>>> At any case, that Controversial Draft Law, has Not yet Entered into Force : It is expected to do so Only After the forthcoming Elections of September 2017, at the Beginning of October.


Moreover, it's almost Certain that it will be Attacked for being Contrary to the Constitution, (which evokes Marriage as a union between a Man and a Woman), at the Federal Constitutional Court in nearby Karlsruhe, (as not only Opposition Party "AfD" has already anounced that it intends to do, but even the Governing CDU/CSU Party's Vice-President of the Parliament, Johannes Singhammer (CSU), recently Warned, in an extensive interview published on July 2017).


Therefore, at least for the Time being, there is also a Legal UnCertainty about that controversial Legislative Bill's Future.


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


=> In this Context, it's obvious that a Strong, even Symbolic, Political Message by the USA of New President Don Trump, in favour of Natural Family values, as, f.ex., also that Exceptionaly Important Alabama Senator Election, (which has already Attracted the Interest of Big Mainstream Medias, includig even "New York Times", "Washington Post", "Fox News", but also "Breitbart", etc),  might Help Chancellor Angie Merkel to, eventualy, Strengthen her Personal stance, Together with that a Wide Majority of MPs in her CDU/CSU Party (+ 75 % : Comp. Facts cited Supra),  Against any Pressure from the Establishment.

  
Merkel had, apparently, already faced such Heavy Pressure against what seemed to be her dearest Personal Agenda and Preferences : F.ex. just after the Previous Elections of September 2013, that she had Brillantly Won with a landmark 40% of the Votes, lacking Only 4 MPs for an Absolute Majority, and therefore Obliged to Seek a Compromise for a Coalition in Goverment, that she had been, then, Hindered to find with her usual "Liberal" Party Allies, since the FDP had, Exceptionaly, Failed to get Enough Votes (more than the 5% Threshhold) in order to be represented at the Parliament :

Therefore, she was Pushed, then, to enter in Long and Hard Negotiations with the "Socialists" and even the "Greens", resulting in Concessions to the First, which Altered her Socio-Political Agenda widely Voted by German People (and probably led also, Later on 2015, to a Notorious Misunderstanding vis a vis the Majority of German People on the Controversial issue of 1,5 Million Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migrants suddenly thrown into the EU through Turkey by Smugglers). Closely Followed even by a Strange and UnPrecedented Brutal Fall which wounded her Leg at an International Ski ressort in the Swiss Alps, to the point that the Chancellor had even been Hindered to Walk unless with 2 Crutches. Shortly Afterwards, she saw her earlier announced Wish to Help for an EU - Russia Deal on Ukraine's Economic relations, (including the eventual creation of a possible PanEuropean Trade Area), be Blocked by Deadly "Snipers", curiously Killing Both Protesters and Policemen at Maidan Square, Provoking a Violent Clash which Nullified a Peaceful Agreement signed by former Ukranian President Yanukovich and all Opposition Leaders then, including Amnesty, a National Unity Government, and Elections before the end of the Year, leading to a Bloodbath and a never-ending Division of that Strategic European Country, since the Beginning of 2014.

=> Tomorrow, (on August 16), Angie Merkel is due to Speak at Nearby Heilbronn, in Baden-Wurtemberg's Länder, Neighbouring Strasbourg, in the framework of her Campaign for the forthcoming, September 2017 Election.


Mass Migration and Economic issues (etc) are expected to fill most of her remarks, while, however, Topical BioEthical Issues, including that of the Latest Move on Controversial "Same Sex Marriage" (etc), are still Pending for Final Results (Comp. Supra).


But Heilbronn is also known for an Historic Masterpiece Artwork by Playwriter Von Kleist, picturing mainly an Honest Woman thrown by a Ruthless Competitor into a Fire for a Crucial "Test", from which the Heroin is Saved with the Help of an Angel, according to a legend : - "Katie of Helbronn, or the Trial by Fire"...


Abgie Merkel, who generaly Loves Artistic/Historic Symbols with a Topical Political Significance, (as "Eurofora" has personaly witnessed already as early as since 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2017, etc., in Berlin and elsewhere, throughout Germany), might, indeed, Find a Timely and strong Symbolic Help,


if Today's exceptionaly Important abd widely attended, strong Popular Vote on Judge Moore for New Senator of Alabama, Marks an U-Turn in American Politics about the Controversial "Same Sex Marriage", particularly concerning Children's fate, Natural Births, etc, which Hide, in fact, Big Stakes for Humankind, (Comp. Supra), possibly influencing even the forthcoming, Crucial 2018 Mid-Term Elections for US Congress and Senate, after Many Years of Controversial and UnPopular Barack Hussein Obama's notorious attempts to Impose "Same Sex Marriage" and even Childrens' "Adoption" by Homosexual Strangers, not only inside but Also Outside of the USA, (that almost All GOP's Presidential Candidates had Strongly Denounced on 2016).


+ This is Added to the Fact that her own, Governing Party, of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, strongly Rejected "SSM" etc. even at the Latest, June 30, 2017, Parliament's Vote in Berlin, with a very Strong Majority of 4/5 : = 75% of its MPs (Comp. Supra).


++ As well as to a Recent Growth of the Rightist "Alternative" Party, apparently becoming Nowadays the 3rd Biggest Party in Germany according to Polls, (which has, meanwhile, Announced its intention to Lodge a Complaint at nearby Karlsruhe's Federal Constitutional Court against that Hasty and Controversial Law adopted at the Last Minute before the forthcoming, crucial German Elections of Setember 2017, as well as several Mainstream CDU/CSU MPs, etc. : Comp. Supra), to the point that, taken Together, ChristianDemocrat and Alternative Right, have Currently Reached, according to the Latest Polls, a Potential of almost an Absolute Majority of Future MPs in the New Parliament, (Even withOut counting their usual "Liberal" Allies)...

germany_first_3_parties_in_15_august_2017_poll_bild__eurofora_screenshot_400


So that Alabama's exceptionaly Interesting, Popular Vote for USA's Senate really comes Timely, both for North America (given the crucial 2018 Mid-Term Elections for US Congress/Senate), and Europe, (given, among others, also the important forthcoming German Election of September 2017, as well as Central-Eastern Europe's Countries notorious efforts to give a Constitutional Guarantee for Natural Family), but also Elsewhere in the World. (F.ex. even accross African Countries, many Representatives of whom had Earlier Strongly Reacted Against some Excessive "LBGT" Agendas and particularly Barack Hussein Obama -pushed Attempts to Impose Controversial and UnPopular "Same Sex Marriage", etc, as an Interesting EU - ACP Conference in EU Parliament in Strasbourg has characteristicaly Revealed, through exceptionaly "Hot" and Critical Debates)...

People in Europe and the World expect from CoE to make a succes of its "Monitoring" for Human Rights and Democracy, despite difficulties, said Finland's President Tarja Halonen to "EuroFora" at a crucial moment for the mecanism built 15 years ago by the paneuropean organization which celebrates its 60th Anniversary in 2009.

Halonen, known as "Mother" of CoE's "Monitoring" mecanism, a long-time MEP and former Foreign Minister before becoming Finland's President, holds a long experience in the mattter, after also serving twice as CoE and EU Chairwoman in the past. That's why she is well placed to judge how CoE's "monitoring" should deal today with some crucial issues of importance both to CoE and to the EU.

The move came just a Month before a crucial, last visit to Turkey, scheduled for June, by the President of CoE''s "Monitoring" Committee, Ukranian MEP Serge Holovaty, to finalize his Report on Ankara, the CoE Member State with the longest Monitoring procedure. From its results depends its overall credibility.

This is a Test-case, because, in fact, it's in order to avoid Sanctions threatened against Turkey by a CoE's Assembly's April 1995 Resolution for grave Human Rights violations, Democracy gaps, the continuing Military Occupation in Cyprus, the unresolved Kurdish problem, Aegean differend with Greece, etc., that MEPs decided to create, for the 1st time on April 1996, a "Monitoring" proces, allegedly destinated to check, without excluding Countries who did not fulfill all CoE's standards.

In the Past, the obliged withdrawal of Greece's Military regime and of its "Civil" cover-up out of the CoE had helped bring back Democracy in 1974. But, on the contrary, since April 1996, the idea was to "monitor" Human Rights' respect while keeping most concerned Countries inside the CoE. After Turkey's oldest example, this was extended also to several former "Eastern" European Countries, even if CoE's Assembly has imposed to some of them (fex. Ukraine, Russia, etc., after Belarus, Serbia, etc) various "Sanctions", that Ankara always avoided. Curiously more succesful even than .. USA itself, (a CoE "Observer" since 1995), which has been at least threatened with sanctions some years ago..

EU-effects of CoE's Monitoring process became obvious between 2001-2008, since the "closure" of this procedure, when CoE felt that a Country had met most of its Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law obligations, (i.e. the "Copenhagen Criteria" for the EU), helped trigger Negotiations with the EU for "Accession" or other closer relations : This occured already before the 2004 and 2007 EU Enlargements to former "Eastern" European Countries, as well as for the commencement of "accession" negotiations with Croatia, and of "open-ended" negotiations with Turkey in 2005.

    But a stricking new development are Holovaty's recent findings that on core Human Rights issues as Torture and Freedom of Expression, Turkey, even "5 Years after" CoE closed its "Monitoring", back in 2004, inciting EU to start accession Negotiations in 2005, still presents grave problems.

    His findings are of crucial importance after a 2008 CoE Resolution called, "if need be", to "seriously consider the possibility of Re-Opening the Monitoring procedure for Turkey" : A move which might affect Ankara's controversial EU bid, since EU Accession Negotiations are based on the Hypothesis that the Candidate fullfils the "Copenhagen Criteria" (See above)..
-------------------------
    Holovaty expressed his will to check  "Matters still Outstanding" and  those that he "didn't have an opportunity to discuss" at an earlier visit this year, "in order to discuss the more complex issues in greater depth", at his forthcoming New Visit to Ankara, before the December 2009 EU Summit.  This is all based on the 2004 CoE Resolution which stresses that, CoE "will continue.. post-monitoring Dialogue with the Turkish authorities,...in addition to a 12-points list,..and on any Other Matter that might arise in connection with Turkey’s Obligations as a CoE member state".

    CoE's Resolution also asks  from Turkey "to secure the proper Implementation of Judgements, particularly in the Cyprus v. Turkey InterState case", of 2001, which concerns also the plight of many Hundreds of MISSING People. It adds Turkey's obligations to "execute" ECHR's Judgements in the Loizidou case,..and in particular adopt General Measures to avoid repetition or continuation of Violations found by the Court" to the detriment of Refugees.

    Nevertheless, Holovaty said to "EuroFora" that "MISSING" persons,"might be included" and cannot be excluded, but he has yet to examine the situation "to find out  which issues will be raised" to the Turkish Government.

    Therefore, "EuroFora" asked Halonen, as the Historic "Mother" of CoE's Monitoring mecanism, if she thought that, "whenever there are grave Human Rights Violations, as fex. "MISSING" persons, attested even by ECHR's judgements, they should be always checked by a Monitoring process. Or could they be forgotten ?"
    
     - "We (CoE) must be, at the same time, Fair, Realistic, but not in the mind that "now we have Forgotten", etc., replied to "EuroFora"'s question Halonen, speaking as a matter of general principle.

    - "When we think of those People that are suffering from the lack of Democracy, of Human Rights, and of the Rule of Law", "we should find a base on how to deal with the (Monitoring) system more rapidly"', she stressed.

    - "Sometimes it's very difficult to combine Transparency and Effectivenes together, particularly in this specific case", she went on to say. But, "I have not found a (CoE Member) Country who could be insensitive in this sens", Halonen answered concerning grave Human Rights violations attested by the ECHR.

    - "I have no ready-made answer. I have the expectations that you, in the CoE, will, step by step, find the different types of the monitoring systems."

    Also "because this is a part of the UN's Post-Conflict system, (fex. when it comes to Cyprus' MISSING persons), and it's a more Global system". So that, "If we make a succes in Europe, the others will follow", throughout the World.  "But they expect that we (Europe) are this opportunity, this Opportunity to make a Succes", Halonen concluded.

    In addition, she advised to extend CoE's Monitoring to all its 47 Member States, "because, as long as we hear that, all these monitoring systems are "OK for the neighbor, but not for me", "it's very difficult" to understand. Something which could make easier to Compare...

    Finnish MEP Jaako Laakso, former CoE Rapporteur on the Occupied Territories of Cyprus and one of the 5 Signatories of the Historic CoE's call to create the "MONITORING" mecanism since 1996, was more specific :  - "We (CoE Assembly) have to find a way for the issue of Cyprus' MISSING People to be better followed", he stressed, anouncing his intention to "speak to Mr. Holovaty" about that. "There might be also other ways", added Laakso.

    - The 2008 "Year had been a very Bad one for Turkey with regard to Human Rights in general, and Freedom of Expression in particular", denounced, meanwhile, Holovaty's preliminary Post-Monitoringh Draft Report by Holovaty, published by the CoE on April 2009.

    "Amnesty International believes that freedom of expression is not guaranteed given the various articles of the Criminal Code that restrict it. .. "For example, 1,300 Websites are said to have been closed down by the (Turkish) authorities in 2008" ! While "the new Turkish Criminal Code was used to bring a total of 1,072 proceedings between June 2005 and April 2008, and led to the conviction of 192 people", for expressing views. "Representatives of the Özgür Gündem newspaper, which specialises in Kurdish affairs, ..complained about Numerous Attacks on their Freedom of Expression ...as was everyone who advocated a settlement to the question by means other than the intervention of the army" "According to their figures, 19 Newspapers had been suspended 43 times between 4 August 2006 and 4 November 2008" !...

    Moreover, on 2008,  CoE's "Ministers adopted its 4rth Resolution on the execution of the judgments of the ECHR, ...and outstanding issues regarding 175 Judgements and decisions relating to Turkey delivered between 1996 and 2008...  concerning Deaths resulting from the excessive use of force by members of the Security forces, the failure to protect the right to life, the DIisappearance and/or death of individuals, Ill-Treatment and the Destruction of property". CoE's " Ministers urged the Turkish authorities ...to ensure that members of Security forces of all ranks can be prosecuted without administrative
authorisation" for "serious crimes". Holovaty reminded.

"Nonetheless", Holovaty heard anew of "Several cases of Violence committed last year (2008) by the (Turkish) security forces". Amnesty International speaks of Many Cases of ill-treatment and Torture in the prisons and by the police". "Including, fex."'the death of Engin Ceber, a young man of 29 who died on October 2008 as a result of the TORTURE allegedly inflicted on him by police officers, prison staff and members of the gendarmerie. He was part of a group of people arrested on September 2008 during a demonstration and Press Conference in Istanbul'. Proceedings against suspects are "on-going" in this case.

- " I therefore noted an Obvious Contradiction between the Government’s stated “zero tolerance” policy.... of Torture and other forms of ill-treatment, and the different testimonies given", denounced CoE's Rapporteur.  Turkish "authorities must make considerable efforts to guarantee that proper investigations are carried out into allegations of abuses by members of the security forces and that perpetrators are effectively punished" "In this respect, I have requested detailed Statistics on the number of Investigations, acquittals and convictions in cases involving allegations of abuse in order to show the positive impact of the measures taken to date", Holovaty said, repeating a permanently unsatisfied CoE's demand to Turkey since a Decade...

    - "The Political Crisis that shook the country in the spring of 2008 highlighted the Weaknesses of the (Turkish) Constitution", which comes from the Military regime of 1982, "and the Urgent Need of Reforms", stressed from the outset CoE's Rapporteur in 2009. In particular, "the ...Democratic functioning of state institutions, including the independence of the judicial system, are crucial", he observes.

    But, "the Electoral  system and the ways in which it is circumvented do not appear to give those elected complete Legitimacy, and tend to pervert the course of direct universal suffrage", denounces Holovaty, observing that, even 5 Years later, Turkey did not yet change the 10% nationwide Threshold for a party to take any seat, which is "far higher" than the "3%" maximum in Europe and already condemned as contrary to European Standards by the CoE.

    + Moreover, EU Parliament's 2009 Report on Turkey, drafted by Dutch MEP Ria Oomen-Ruijten and adopted in Strasbourg on March, expresses "Concern over the Failure of the (Turkish) Judiciary to prosecute cases of Torture and Ill-treatment, the Number of which is Growing". EU also "is concerned about continuing Hostility and Violence against Minorities" in Turkey. It also "calls on the Turkish Government to launch, as a matter of Priority, a Political Initiatve favouring a lasting Settlement of the Kurdish issue, (while "condemning violence.. and terrorist groups"). EU "regrets that No progress has been made on establishing full, systematic Civilian suprevisory functions over the (Turkish) Military".

    The final results of Holovaty's 2nd and last visit to Turkley will be known later this year, and, at any case, before EU's December 2009 Summit.
