*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelob Marcopolo/-
Experienced, long-time President of PanEuropean CoE's "Democracy through Law" Watchdog, known as "Venice Commission", Gianni Buquicchio from Italy, speaking to "Eurofora" at the CoE, said, in substance, that he expects for an exceptionaly Important series of Top Legal Experts' Checks on Many Recent controversial Decisions taken by the Turkish Government, after a July 2016 alleged "Coup" Attempt, to be Ready well in advance of the Next CoE's Parliamentrary Assembly's (PACE) Plenary Session, scheduled for January 2017.


The New President of CoE Assembly's Biggest Political Group of MEPs, that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, Head of the German Delegation, Axel Fischer, speaking Previously to "Eurofora", had already Warned that PACE's main Move on Turkey, about Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, was due to Start then, (See : ...).


Meanwhile, PACE's Director General, Wojcieck Sawicki from Poland, also told "Eurofora", last Week, that the PanEuropean Assembly had Asked from the "Venice Commission" to Check All the Decisions taken by the Turkish Government after that July 2016 "Coup" Attempt (which notoriously durated Less than 6 Hours : See ...), and Expected its Conclusions "on December 2016".


Apparently, it wasn't possible to act Earlier in this regard, since, inter alia, an Official CoE Fact-Finding Visit had to be Organized, beforehand, with the Agreement of Ankara's Authorities, and this is now expected to take place "on November" 2016, (as President Buquicchio Revealed to "Eurofora" Today), so that Venice Commission's Report could Not, in practice, be Ready Neither for the Present, Autumn 2016, PACE Plenary Session, (10-14 October 2016), in Strasbourg, Nor during the forthcoming PACE's Standing Committee's important Session in Nicosia (Cyprus), scheduled towards the End of November, (24-25/11/2016).


Indeed, the President of "Venice Commission" told us that, after paying an Official Visit to Turkey Next Month (November 2016), he expected to Prepare a Draft Report asap. in order to be Definitively Discussed and Adopted by that prestigious PanEuropean body, (composed mainly by Presidents of National Constitutional Courts and/or other Top Legal Experts, and Often consulted also by EU Commission from Brussels), "on December" 2016.


Buquicchio also said that he had just Met with Ukranian President Poroshenko, "Yesterday", at Kiev, where Venice Commission is currently making a Fresh Effort to Help Advance some more, long-awaited "Legal Reforms" in certain Important sectors, Key for the Present and the foreseable Future of that Strategialy located, European Country.
He spoke to "Eurofora" shortly after being Heard by MEPs at CoE Assembly's powerful "Monitoring" Committee, Earlier this Afternoon, about several "Venice Commission"'s "Recent" Findings, naturaly including also on Turkey.


Later this week, "Venice Commission", is due to Adopt officialy a Report on Ankara Government's recent Decision to Suspend the Constitutional provisions for MPs' "Parliamentary Inviolability", on Thursday, October 13.


President Gianni Buquicchio was accompagnied by Venice Commission's Director, Thomas Markert from Germany, with whom he has been Cooperating, closely Together, for Many Years.

    UK Prime Minister, Gordon Brownn's promise to French President Sarkozy that Great Britain will proceed to Lisbon Treaty's ratification was certainly fuelled further by MEPs' warning, meanwhile in Strasbourg, that all Enlargement stops until EU can have efficient Institutions for more than 27 member Countries.    

    EU Parliament's President, German MEP Hans Gert Poettering, formally announced this position, after consulting all Political Groups' Chairmen, Monday in Strasbourg, and most MEPs made the point crystal clear during Plenary Debates on Wednesday.   

     Thus, from Thursday, UK's House of Commons, at Westminster, gave its "Green Light" to Lisbon Treaty's ratification, which was completed later-on, after ovecoming some last minute attempts to block the process.

    - In only 3 other Member Countries we feel some "hesitations" : Poland, Czech Republic and Cyprus", said, meanwhile, EU Chairman-in-office, Slovenian Foreign Minister, Dr. Dimitri Ruppel, speaking to EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee in Strasbourg, However, "I didn't hear any explicit refusal", he carefully added.

    Rupel's fears were later bellied in Cyprus' case, where a wide majority of political parties confirmed their support to the EU Treaty, but fears were confirmed in Poland's case, while Czechs said they waited for their Constitutional Court to pronounce itself.

    A paradox is that the Polish President Lech Kaczynski, who reportedly expressed concerns about Lisbon Treaty, had personally signed himself its blueprint, while, on the contrary, Cyprus' new President, Christofias, despite its own party's opposal, declared that he'll respect the signature of his precedessor, former President Tassos Papadopoulos, in favor of EU Treaty.

    But, "all that noise is a misinterpretations by some Western Media : Poland will ratify the EU Treaty, and even earlier than some other Member Countries", declared to "EuroFora", in a surprisingly optimistic tone, the Polish Chairman of EU Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee, Jacek Saryuswolski...
