eu_election_results_2019_majority_for_unit_of_right_b_400

*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/(Partly UpDated)/- European People gave an Absolute Majority to a Unity of the Right, extended, or not, to the Center-Right, among the 751 MEPs that they Elected this Sunday, after an UnExpected, Last-Minute Surge of a Record-High Popular Participation, Bellying all Polls which had predicted, on the Contrary, a Worsening of the Abstention of the last 20 Years...

According to the Official Results of EU Parliament, mainstream Center-Right ChristianDemocrats/EPP remains the Biggest Group of MEPs, with the Difference that, from Now on, they mathematically dispose also of an Absolute Majority if they are Added Together with all the Various Rightists, currently WideSpread among the Conservatives, EFDD, EFN, independent or unclassified yet, etc.   

It's towards such a phenomenon of European People Voting an absolute Majority for a Unity of the Right, that point, obviously, also several Mainstream Newspapers' overall presentations of the results, (including, f.ex., "Welt", "Parisien", etc : See relevant PHOTOS: Here, Conservative Parties are pictured at the Right side):

(EU 2019 Election Results' Highlights

by mainstream Newspapers "Die Welt/Germany and "Le Parisien"/France)

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

It's a New Political Situation, withOut any known Precedent in the Past.

 

On the Contrary, Neither the "Socialists", not even the Liberals (Centrists), (despite a slight strengthening of the latter), canNot find Any kind of Majority at all, if they stay Limited Only in various associations between them, and the "Greens", Euro-Left, etc., (most of them due to become even Smaller in case of BREXIT), at the Left Side of the Political Spectrum.

eu_elec_2019_results_ppe_lib_rightists_400 

But, theoretically, there is Still Room for a "Center-Right" Alliance, of EPP and Liberals, with More Rightists than before, as in the out-going EU Parliament's Presidency by experienced Italian ChristianDemocrat MEP, and twice former EU Commissioner, Antonio Tajani, (who, as some informed sources have told "Eurofora", might, indeed, be willing to move Forward anew, after his previous Success to get a Stable Majority withOut the "Socialists", but in agreement with some Rightists, already during the period of 2017-2019, See: ..., etc).

It would, indeed, be a Surprise if Emmanuel Macron's New Centrists (reportedly added to Liberals) might, eventually, Refuse the further development of such a Center-Right up to Rightists' de facto Alliance, as in the Recent Past : Since, a Refusal would practically and symbolically mean that they are More at the "Left" than what Guy Verhofstadt's Liberals used to be...

Meanwhile, it's not only true that the ChristianDemocrats/EPP's mainstream Right, still remains, unquestionably, the Biggest EU Parliament's Group, with about 179-180 MEPs, (compared to just 153 for the Socialists, and only 105 to Liberals), but also that the Rightists' 3 Groups (Conservatives, EFDD and EFN) now Reach an almost Equivalent Total, for the 1st Time in History : i.e. about 175 MEPs already Registered, (who Might Extend even Further).

+ Moreover, there is a Potential to Add, eventually, a Supplementary Number of about +14 - 16 More MEPs, i.e. arriving towards a Total of 189 or 190, by Integrating Many New Small Rightist Parties, which have Emerged almost Everywhere throughout EU's 28 Member States nowadays :

- Indeed, among a lot of New MEPs, (mainly various kinds of Rightists), for the Moment designated as "Others", i.e. "Newly elected Members, Not (Yet) Allied to any of the political Groups set up in the Outgoing Parliament", there are, f.ex. :  

3 Spanish MEPs of the New Party "Vox" ; 4 "Pirates" from Czech Republic and Germany (perhaps for the EFDirectDemocracy Group ?) ; 2 Slovenians from "Kotleba" ; and 2 Slovaks from "L'SNS Kotleba" ; 1 Estonian from "EKRA" ; 1 Greek from "Greek Solution" ; 1 Croat from "Zidi zid" (Bouclier Humain"); 1 German from "Familien" Partei, (etc)...

Even among Pre-existing "Independents" Might be some recruits, as, f.ex., UK's "DUP" (Northern Ireland's Conservatives, until now Allies of the Brittish Conservative Government) : 1 MEP; Hungary's rightist "JOBIC": 1; perhaps, Later-on, Greece's "GD" rightists: 2 (awaiting imminent clarification), etc.

Obviously, there is, still, a Problem of Unity, among the 3 Groups of the Rightists, (ECR, EFDD and EFN), but this may be Resolved, perhaps, if and when the "BREXIT" might, eventually, Start to take Away the British Conservatives, at the Latest : until  October 2019, etc., allowing the Polish a.o. to help reGroup all those New MEPs, etc.

But, independently of that, and/or, once that matter Settled, in one way or another, as far as it concerns the Principles, it's Difficult to understand Why the Left should be Free to become United, (as, f.ex., "Socialist" Candidate Timmermans proposed), while, on the Contrary, the Right should stay Always Divided, (as some claim)...

 Already, there are several, and various Recent Governments of a "Unity of the Right" throughout Europe, (f.ex. from Norway to Bulgaria, etc), and, even in Austria, it was not only the mainstream Center-Right's "EPP", but Even the ...mainstream "Socialists" who have already acted as Allies of the Rightists' "Freedom Party", Both Earlier, at a Regional level, as well as in Consultations for an eventual National Coalition, and Nowadays, at the National Parliament, in order to just OverThrow the 2nd EPP's Kurz Government !...

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

In fact, the New Potential just Created by the Democratic Votes of the European People,looks as an Important Historic Reality in the Making:

=> To put it in a nutshell, the current, potentially "Central" Position of EU Parliament's Biggest Group : that of ChristianDemocrats/EPP, is of Crucial Importance, has a Strategic Responsibility, and Holds the Key :

>>> F.ex., from one Side, it could Rely on a Compromise with Macron's a.o. Liberals in order to Attract the Rightists towards a Strong and Developed, well Integrated and Ambitious Europe, with a Big and Noble Mission in the World,

while, almost at the Same Time, from the Other Side, it should Make Good Use of Rightists' Claims for Security of the People Facing Islamist Terrorism (See Infra), UnPrecedented Mass Asylum Seekers/Irregular Migration, etc., but also for Natural Family, healthy Traditional Values and BioEthics, Hard Working People and basic Solidarity, National and European, Historic and Cultural Identity and Civilisation, aspirations for Less Bureaucracy, but Modern forms of a more Direct Democracy, Peace, etc.

- In Other Words, such a "Central", Strategic Position for the Biggest Group f MEPs, that of ChristianDemocras/EPP (Comp. Supra), must be well used in order to Create, out of Contradictions, Divisions, and Chaos' Risks, right the Opposite : I.e. to Seize the Historic Opportunity, and Dare Meet the huge Challenge, to Forge the Synthesis of a much Needed, Deeper and Wider, Active Group, of "Real Europeans" !...

The Mystery of Last Minute, Historic Record-High Popular PARTICIPATION

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

+ The 2nd big Surprise in this 2019 EU Election is the Last-Minute, UnExpected Emergence of a Huge, Exceptional Uprise in Popular Participation to the Votes, Contrary to many Polls, which had previously Predicted a continuation or even a Worsening of the Majority Abstentions of the Recent Past (since 1999) :

=> Indeed, instead of Stagnating or Falling even Lower, as predicted, on the Contrary, People's Participation to these EU Elections, Suddenly Jumbed Up, Growing even Higher than what it had ever been During the last 20 Years of 1999 - 2019 (always a Minority), to the point to Reach a Crystal-clear, Absolute Majority of 51% of Voters now !

eu_elecs_2019_turnout__participation_pe_400 

- How to Explain this important and exceptional, last-minute Big Change, throughout 28 EU Member Countries ?

It's a well-known Fact that, around and after 1999, the European People had been notoriously Deceived, (many even felt Betrayed, particularly in their best pro-European Ideals), especially by too much concessions made then (under USA's Liberals' pressure) about Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid... The 2005-2007 "No" to EU Referenda, were Key parts of those Popular Reactions, as well as Electoral Abstentions, EuroScepticism, etc....  On the Contrary, after what happened recently, Most EU Political Leaders have notoriously tried to show that, at last, nowadays (around 2017-2019), they Hear the Voice of the People, and often Multiplied various Statements Against Turkey's controversial and unpopular EU bid, many asking to put

This might, perhaps, provide a possible Explanation for More Popular Participation to the Votes, in general.

>>>But, obviously, canNot Explain at all Why the Abstention Trend reportedly Remained still in place, (according to Most Polls), Changing Only at the Last Days, (possibly Hours or Minutes), and so Radically, that Popular Participation, Suddenly, ..."Exploded" Now, surging from only a Minority of around  40%, Up to a Majority of More than +51% !

=> Only a Last-Minute Surprize Event, of so Vital Importance that it was Able to Speak right to the Hearts and Minds of the People, to a point to Make them Move, Massively and Suddenly, towards a New Direction, could have, naturally, Provoked such a Big, Massive, Fast and UnExpected Change...    

- Was there, at least, One (1) ?     

- Facts show that there were, indeed, ...Three (3), convergent and closely interRelated :

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

(a) At First, on May 15, Many People were Astonished by the Scandalous, last-minute Exclusion of any Discussion on the Need to Protect EU Citizens from Islamist Terrorism, during the unique EU Parliament's Debate among Top Candidates in EU Elections, Despite the Fact that it had been Initially included in the List of Topics, and was generally considered as Number 1 Concern for the People throughout Europe, (See : http://www.eurofora.net/newsfl                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               ashes/news/euparliamentelectoraldebatemaimed.html).

 

(b) Soon afterwards, on May 24, a bloody Neal Bomb Explosion, (at a pedestrian street in a shopping center, a busy Day), hits 13 Victims who are Wounded and Hospitalized, including 9 Women and a Girl aged 8 y.o., several among whom, must be Operated in order to take out of the Wounded Feet various inserted pieces of Metal. Those Explosives are frequently used by Islamist Terrorists, a.o., and the specialized anti-terrorist Police finds that the Perpetrators "acted certainly with the Aim to Kill". An official Investigation for attempts of Murders in relation with a Terrorist activity, started.

Various relevant Statements were made by French President Macron, CoE Assembly's President Pasquier, and Rightist opposition leader Marine Le Pen, etc. See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/paceheadonlyonterrorattackinvestigation.html).


(c) But, suddenly, on 24-26 May, what a Surprize : The 1st  (and during More than a Day: Unique) PHOTO of the "Wanted" Bomber, Published by the Police, at an Official Document (called "Appel à Temoins" = "Call for Witnesses"), astonishingly pictures an invisible Face, Hidden under a complete Cover 100% !

lyon_attenat_killer_photo_more_clear_400_01 

lyon_attack_1st_photo_of_wanted_suspect_as_curiously_difformed_by_police.._400 

Head, Eyes and all the rest of that Head were Totaly Covered, by a Hat, big Black Glasses, and Something Else which Hides even his Ears, Mouth, Cheeks, Neck, Thorax, etc... (it all looks as a kind of Grey/Black strange ...Burka, or, rather, an afterwards added Paint, as often done in Police Photos in order to Blurr the Image of unrelated Persons, etc).

And this unique Suspect Bloody Bomber is Wanted Urgently, because he still is on the Run, and officially declared as "Dangerous"...

Naturally, that 1st, Falsified "Official" PHOTO, which obviously HINDERS to see anything from the FACE of Lyon's bloody Nail Bomber, (Comp. Supra), immediately Started to Provoke various Question-Marks, Protests, Criticism and Denunciations by Many People, at several Web a.o. Fora.

>>> But it's Only More than one whole Day Later, (from Friday Afternoon until ...Saturday late Evening !), that the Police, at last, accepted to simply issue a follow-up Publication Adding +2 OTHER PHOTOS, which, at last, were Not Blurred (so that the Face of that Bearded Bloody Neal Bomber could be seen), Contrary to the 1st one. And this was done with a Minimum (if not at all) of Mediatic Impact, since Most Medias had already Finished their Week-End Editions...

lyon_attack_terrorist_suspect_new_photo_by_police_400_01 

=> Result : The Identity of the Bloody Lyon Bomber is practically Hidden to the People as they arrive to the Crucial Election Day, withOut even Knowing that the Nail Bombing against 13 Civilian Victims Wounded, was, in fact, an Islamist Terrorist attack !

On the Contrary, some_Morbid "Trolls" went as far as to even Spread "Fake "News" suggesting that the Aggressor might have been a ...French or other European Rightist, seeking to Slander some Foreigners, Mass Migrants and/or Muslim Groups, in order to Manipulate the EU Elections !...

Thus, EU Citizens inevitably started to Question, Suspect, and Later Realize, that some, inside the Establishment, probably prefer to Hide a Bloody Criminal, (with the Risk to Escape Punishment, and/or Attack and Kill More Civilian People), than lose Votes, if the Truth was Revealed before the 26 May crucial EU Election of 2019...

(*DLR : Partly UPDATED) Indeed, Once 2 quasi-Normal Photos were, at last, Published by the Police, even too Late for the Democratic process, (Comp. Supa), immediately, more than ..."600" Witnesses rushed to Phone to the Public Authorities, and Help Identify, very Fast, as the Number 1 Suspect for that Bloody Nail Bombing which Targetted 13 Wounded and Hospitalized Civilian People at Lyon,

a reportedly Irregular Migrant, Mr. Mohamed Hichem M., who Recently arrived in Europe from Algeria since only 2017, but had been Rejected by a School for Computers, and was, (according to his "Best Friend", Mr. Islaam), a practicing "Muslim, Praying, and following Ramadan", "Discussing Religion, speaking of the Prophet and about the Coran", claiming that "Syria" was just "a Problem between Bassar-el-Assad and his People" (sic !), and, "even if he had the Competences to Make a Bomb", nevertheless, "wouldn't have harmed anyone", since "he was Never Violent" (re-sic !)... Just this "Sunday" (i.e. 1,5 Day after Wounding 11 People with a Nail Bomb Explosion), "we spoke about the Football Cup", (Not of Europe or the World, but only "of Africa"), as he boasted..., (according to an Interview just published by Newspaper "le Parisien" - UPDATED).

Speaking of ...Football, During that Same Time, at least 2 Young Girls were Obliged to be "Operated in a Hospital, under General Anesthesia", in order to Extract "Many Pieces of Metal" from their Legs, where they had been Brutaly Inserted when "that Nail Bomb had Explosed only 2 Meters from them" at Lyon, as their Father had earlier denounced.

=> So that, when European People are so scandalously Hindered to know the Truth on Time,  on Who is the Criminal Responsible for Bloody Terrorist Attacks targetting innocent Civilians, (Comp. Supra), shortly after having even been Hindered to simply watch, at least, a promised Debate, between Top Candidates in EU Elections, about the Need to Better Protect Citizens from Bloody Islamist Terrorism, as that which Wounded 11 Victims, (9 Women, and a Small Girl 8 y.o., several Hospitalized, and some Operated under General Anaesthesia), etc,      

+while, too Many Thousands among those same Europeans, have also been, Recently, Massively Censored, and/or Banned, therefore Hindered to Express themselves, Communicate and/or Debate in Public at the Internet, by many Controversial and UnPopular, Oppressive and Massive Foreign Interferences, mainly by Big "GAFA" Corporations, (i.e. Private Businesses), in blatant Collusion with USA's Political Left, f.ex. in California, Nancy Pelosi, etc., and even several EU Bodies and/or Governing Politicians (mostly of the Left),

=> then, it's only Natural for EU Citizens to, suddenly, spontaneously and massively Rush towards the Only Democratic Tool that they still Disposed, i.e. this, 2019 EU Election's Vote, with the Result to, UnExpectedly Reach a more than 20 Years' Historic Record High Participation (Comp. Supra) !...

 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 :
----------------------------------

imag0103_400

    - "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.

Polls

2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
