*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/(Partly UPDATED)/- COVID-19 Virus' Policy should Not be Exclusively EnTrusted Only to the Ministry of Health, given its current Limits (See Infra), But should have a much Broader Scope, Involving Also the Ministries in charge of Civic Protection and, particularly, Defense, (etc), stressed the Experienced former Many times Minister, Government Spokesman, and Now President of France's Association of Mayors, Francois Baroin, speaking as a Keynote Invitee at the 2020 Annual Congress of French Regions, where Participated also Prime Minister Castex, ECB's Head Lagarde, Senate's President Larcher, European Affairs Minister Beaune, (etc), and for which "Eurofora" had received a Press Invitation to the Video-Conference, (See Also : ..., etc).

- Indeed, well Beyond the Current, Controversial Health Minister Veran, (See, f.ex.: ..., etc), that Post is too Often Linked with certain narrow Lobbies of Interests, (as, f.ex., Big Pharma's relations to Public Hospitals, etc), while, in Fact, Human Lives' and Public Health's Issues May Extend much Further, Including, f.ex., (in Addition to Justice affairs, f.ex. concerning ECHR's relevant case-law, Home affairs and Public Order, etc), Also National Defense, Baroin pointed out.

Such Considerations may also Explain, perhaps, at least partialy, why Veran was, until now, Astonishingly, so Stubbornly Opposed f.ex. to the Simple and Cheap Drug for Anti-Virus' Therapy "HCQ+", (Notoriously Backed by US and Brazil Presidents Trump and Bolsonaro, as well as French Professor Raoult, etc), to the point to commit the Error to Base on a grosssly "Bogus Study", with 11 "Big Flaws", (See : ..., etc), even Moves to Prohibit Scientific Research on "CHQ+", also on WHO's Global Level, Exclude Medical Doctors from Prescribing that well-Known Drug not even to themselves, etc., leading to one of the Biggest Scandals on Establishment's Medical Press in our Century, initialy Whistle-Blowed by "Eurofora", (See : ..., etc), later Known as "LANCET-GATE", etc, but involving also USA's "New England Medical Review", which were, Later, Obliged to "Retract" that Paper, (See : ..., etc). Indeed, "Gilead", the US Company commercializing a Competitor, but much More Expensive Drug, of Dubtful "Efficiency", But full of various "Negative Side Effects" : "Remdesivir", has reportedly Gained, Already, More than 900 Millions $ from being "The Only" Currently Authorized such Drug...

>>> On the Contrary, however, French Defense Minister Parly, has reportedly Stock-piled a lot of "HCQ+" Medical Supplies, as a matter of Precaution, for Eventualy Urgent Army's Needs in the foreseable Future of this Pandemic...

+ Meanwhile, Even France's landmark Military Air-Carrier "De Gaule" was reportedly Blocked by a ...Virus' Infections OutBreak aboard, and Obliged to Stay Immobilized at a SeaPort, precisely when a very "Hot" Issue about EU's currently Unique Oil/Gas Energy Resources at South-Eastern Mediterranean, mostly Located around EU Members Cyprus and Greece, had Faced, last April 2020, Turkey's provocative WarShips' Bullying and Threats, (See, f.ex., among others, also : ..., etc).

++ Earlier, also India's Popular Prime Minister Modi, has Notoriously Faced Loud Accusations by a pro-Pakistan Islamic Foreign Lobby (Previously HeadQuartered in Turkey's Istanbul/Constantinople City, during a Long Period of Time), After a Controversial Trans-National Mass-Meeting of an Islamist Sect, including from Neighbouring Countries, (as Also Indonesia, etc), reportedly "Imported" several Virus' Infections inside New Delhi, and, subsequently, Spread accross several Other Indian Regions where several Participants scattered Afterwards, at the Beginning of the Pandemic's OutBreak, Back on Spring 2020, Provoking Strong Reactions by Many Angered Indian People. Before that Incident, India had an Exceptionaly Good Public Healh Situation, Well Protected against the Virus, also by a Strict Policy of Closure of its Borders towards China, (as Also Russia had initialy done, then, Before being, Later-on, Infected by EU-Imported Cases), But embattled Prime Minister Modi was reportedly DisLiked by Parts of a Muslim Minority, inter alia, apparently, Also Because of his Notorious Efforts to Save from Slaughter the Cows, that the Budhist Majority notoriously considers "Holy", Despite his Efforts to Moderate some People's perhaps excessive Denonciations of what they were Afraid to be a kind of ..."Virus Jihadism" (sic !) by some Extremist Grouplets, as they reportedly Denounced.

+++ In Europe, France has faced, since the Beginning of October 2020, a Sudden Big Acceleration of its Daily Infections Numbers of the Virus' "2nd Wave", soon Becoming (by Far) the Worst-Hit EU Member Country, in Spectacular Proportions, Just After President Macron's Official Policy Announcements, on October 2, against an "Islamist Separatism" Phenomenon, including, also, the Prohibition of "Imported Imams", Chosen, Trained, Funded and Monitored by Foreign States, (as, notoriously, Turkey, in Similar Problems Earlier Found also Imported inside Germany, and Other European Countries). Shortly After that, Macron, and France in general, Notoriously Became a Frequent "Target" of Turkish President Erdogan's Gross Provocations and ..."Too Vulgar" Insults, (as German Chancelor Angie Merkel reportedly Denounced, Together with Many Other EU Top Leaders), of UnPrecedented Hate-Spreading level.... (To the Point that Turkey was Even the Only State which had Not Yet Reacted -until Many Observers made Critical Remarks about ut, Later-on- to the Horrible Be-Heading of French Teacher Samuel Paty, by a Coward Islamist Terrorist born in Chechnya, for having just Discussed with his Students, at a Freedom of Expression Lesson, the Famous "Charlie Hebdo"'s Moameth Cartoons, on Pretext of which, the 1st Massive Massacrre Cowardly Targeting Civilian People in France by ISIL's Islamist Terrorists - Noadays Judged in Paris, with Number 1 Culprit someone Born in Turkey - had, Notoriously, occured on January 2015).

++++ In the Meantime, China has reportedly Discovered the Horrifying Reality of More than ...137 Individuals Infected by (and Spreading) the Deadly Virus, ...But withOut Any Perceptible Symptom on themselves, since they were Completely ... "ASymptomatic" ! This UnPrecedented numerous Collective Incident occured in the Xijiang Western Region of China, reportedly Near its Borders with Islamist Pakistan, (a Notoriously Close Ally to Turkey), at an Area considered to be the Cradle of the troublesome Minority of Turkic "Unghur"s...

+++++ Last (?), but Not Least, even a Long-Forgotten, ...Avian Flu OutBreak hit, Later-on, France's Agricultural Countryside, Topicaly Reminding the Big Problems of a Past Epidemic that had also hit China too), which had Notoriously Originated mainly by that Virus' sources at Eastern Turkey.

>>> All these Strange, but Converging and Alarming Facts, are Not at all Necessarily Linked to the quite Different Controversy about this Deadly Virus' alleged "Natural" or "Artificial" Origin, (f.ex. "made by a Labo", etc), as "Eurofora" has already Observeved, on the occasion of an Astonishingly Long Series of Various "Conservative" Top Political Leaders elsewhere in Europe and across the World personaly Affected by the Virus, (16 were Already traced, to whom were Recently Added also the Polish President Duda -mixed in a "Hot" BioEthical Issue- and Bulgarian Prime Minister Borisev - who had already formed a "Unity of the Right" including on Traditional Values, etc - reaching +18 Cases), withOut Any Similar Incident ever touching upon their "Socialist" Competitors : Indeed, Even a "Naturaly"-Born Virus Might, Perhaps, become Maipulated, Later-on, in Eventual Attempts to Slyly Undermine Political Adversaries, (See, f.ex., at: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/manyconservativeshitbyvirus.html, etc).

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.
