*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/- A Journalist's independent Web "NoteBook", which became Popular by its Freedom of Criticism and Investigative Journalism,  proved to be much more Dangerous for Corrupted Criminals, than a routine Ordinary Job to Establishment's Medias, judging by the Target of those sly Murderers who Exploded a Bomb in her Car, brutaly Killing Daphne Caruana Galizia, near her Family Home in Malta, earlier Today.

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


 - "Her Blog sometimes achieved a Larger Readership, than All the other Newspapers in Malta combined", reported the "Independent" (a former mainstream Newspaper, which has recently become an Internet "Pure Player" 100%)


 - Daphne "had been Sued for Libel over Articles she wrote for her Blog", as "AP" Agency calls Daphne Caruana Galizia's "Notebook" at the Web, nicknamed "Running Commentary", (often with Acid Criticism on some Politicians).


They reportedly included alleged Revelations about "Corruption", including Offshore Compagnies in the "Panama Papers" recent scandal, (f.ex. said to be related to Azerbaijan, etc), links to "Prostitution racket in London", Senior Officials' visits to "Brothels in Germany", etc.


Her Criticism reportedly Focused mainly at the Governing Socialist ("Labour") Party's Leaders, but was also extended to at least a part of the main Opposition Party's leadership, etc.


Just 2 Weeks before her Murder, she had reportedly filed (in vain) a report to the Police complaining about being "Threatened".


At her Latest Publication in her personal, Internet Website, (shortly before the Deadly Explosion), she had also Denounced that "there are Crooks everywhere you look now,” to the point that “the situation is Desperate", observed "CNN".


That Last Article concerned mainly the Prime Minister’s chief of staff, "Eurofora" confirmed.


But, reports that the Head of the Team of Magistrates charged with the Inquiry on that Murder had "personally" persecuted Daphne in the Past, obviously risks to cast a Shadow on the Investigation.


Thus, the Maltese Government has just declared that it asked also a Help from USA's "FBI" in order to Investigate that Crime : A move which Reminds a similar Attempt by a former Ukranian President in the Famous case another Critical Web Journalist Gongadze, in the Past, which had also arrived at the ECHR and was Pending at CoE's Committee of Ministers i Strasbourg. But, recently, at the USA, several FBI's Senior Officials have been notoriously Criticized (mainly, but not only, by New US President Don Trump's supporters) reportedly as partial former Cronies of Hussein Barack Obama's previous Administration, (widely Criticized for Spying more on his Political Opponents than against Deadly Islamist Terrorists...


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


 - EU Parliament's President, Antonio Tajani, stressed that this "Journalist who Sacrificed her life to seek out the Truth", "won’t be forgotten.”


- EU Commission's vice-President, Frans Timmermans tweeted that ": "If journalists are Silenced, our Freedom is Lost".


- President of European ChristianDemocrat/EPP party, Joseph Daul, (former Long-Time Top MEP from Strasbourg), in a Press Release send to Journalists, including "Eurofora", by his Spokesman, Siegfried Muresan, a MEP from Romania, noted that "Daphne Caruana Galizia has Dedicated her Life to uncovering the Truth through her reporting", trying with "Investigative Journalism" to "make the World a more Transparent and Better Place". With "such a Horrific Crime", "the Free World ... lost a champion of Democracy and Free Speech".


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


="Daphne" (alias "Laurier" in French) is the Greek Name of the Tree whose Leafs were used, during the Ancient Greek Civilisation, in order to Honour mainly Heroes, (who made sacrifices to realize an Exceptional Achievement, for the sake of a Collective Ideal and the General Good of Society or Humanity).


People like Caruana Galizia merit their "Daphne" leafs, for ever :


=> She must Not be Forgotten - ...Neither her Coward Killers,  until Justice is done, and the full Truth revealed.


The Tree of Daphne has Many Leafs !

 sarko_merkel_press_400

    Before the end of 2009, France and Germany will take strong initiatives to open "new Horizons" needed by Europe and the World, going well beyond the current Crisis' management, anounced French President Nicolas Sarkozy and German Chancellor Angie Merkel, reassuring that both a judgement on Lisbon Treaty by nearby Karlsruhe German Federal Court, and the forthcoming National Elections in Germany would confirm their capacity to act.    

They were replying to Press questions in Berlin, after key-regional elections on Sunday, where Merkel's ChristianDemocratic party kept everywhere a strong 1st and won the possibility to forge a New Majority with Liberals at the largest of 3 Landers : Saxony (4 millions inhabitants), while its main competitor, the Socialdemocrat party fell to unprecedented lows : Tackled by the small "Linke" (left) party in Saarland (1 million inhabitants), it became even smaller than it in Saxony and Thuringen (3 million inhabitants), where SPD arrived only third. While its usual partners, the "Greens" also fell down, contrary to CDU's new partners, the FDP Liberals, who go up.

    - "At any case, at the end of the year (2009), if things go as scheduled, we shall take strong initiatives, showing that Europe needs a Franco-German axis, as well as the World, even if it never excludes other" countries to join, replied Sarkozy to a question if France and Germany will revive the "European dream", by "relauncing the EU motor" for the Future, with actions going further than the mere management of the global crisis, (as it was done fex. in the Past with the creation of the "Euro" Monetary zone, etc).

    - "I am convinced that the Franco-German friendship must be constantly nourished by New Projects", he added."There are many areas of cooperation where we intend to take, very soon, some Franco-German initiatives, which will allow to open more Horizons" to the EU, Sarkozy stressed.

    But if "we don't speak about that now, it's only in order to avoid interfering in important elections coming in Germany", he observed. However, "we have already started to consider the Future with the (German) Chancellor, and what we can do in order to honour our predecessors". "We are already speaking about that, and we are preparing things". "I am working very well together with Mrs Merkel, and I wish that it goes on", Sarkozy concluded.

    - "It's important for EU's credibility that France and Germany advance forward together", stressed Merkel from the outset. "Don't worry about Germany's capacity to undertake initiatives" with France, she added. "France and Germany will be perfectly able to make proposals" for the EU.

    -  "After-crisis" plans must be prepared, meanwhile, with measures "advancing progressively", Merkel anounced. And, for the short term, we must deal also with EU Citizens' dismay since they feel that it's a Scandal for some in the Financial Markets to be paid with excessive "Bonuses", etc, she agreed with Sarkozy.

    - "Abuses in financial markets must stop", stressed also Sarkozy. Backing Merkel's announcement that France and Germany call for an EU meeting to forge "a crystal-clear European position" in view of the G-14 Summit at Pittsburg, he warned that "everyone will have to undertake his responsibilities, in front of World's Public Opinion. particularly those who don't want to make the same effort of regulation as France and Germany".

    Moreover, "Global Trade cannot be correctly dealt, without taking into account also Environmental and Social rules", Sarkozy added, referring to recently expressed positions against Unfair Competition via Environmental and/or Social Dumping, (See earlier "EuroFora"'s publications).

    Such moves are obviously linked to the need to ensure at least an elementary respect for Human Rights by Third Countries, (f.ex. exploitation of Children's work, etc) in order to avoid, precisely, any such Social Dumping.

    - "EU has Values, protecting Human Rights and Human Dignity", and "it cannot close its eyes" in front of grave violations, particularly "Torture and/or killings", added, indeed, Sarkozy.

    Thus, "the time comes, where decisions must be taken". But, in case of "Sanctions", "all International opinion should be convinced of the need to take action", he observed.

    Expressed on the occasion of recent developments in Iran, the same principles should logically apply also to other similar cases, including fex. that of Hundreds of ECHR judgements' condemning f;ex. Turkey for grave crimes, (as Torture, brutal Killings, Enforced "Disappearances", Destruction of Family Homes, harassments and oppressive violations of Freedom of Speech, etc).

    Meanwhile, questioned on (EU Commission's chair)  Barroso's bid to succeed himself for a second mandate, they both expressed a "wish" or a "feeling" that "EU Parliament"'s various political Groups might fix a date for decisions "during September". However, is he is endorsed before the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty, it will be legally necessary to re-vote anew for a full term of office afterwards, according to EU Legal Experts, revealed recently in Strasbourg the experienced former President of EU Parliament's Constitutional Committee, German Socialist MEP Jo Leinen. And Germany will not vote for Lisbon Treaty's ratification but only "on September 8 and 18", revealed Merkel, ( i.e. after EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg).

    - Therefore, "for EU Commissioners' appointment, it's too early yet, because we must wait for the ratification of Lisbon Treaty" by all 27 EU Member countries, including naturally Ireland's Referendum on early October, said to "EuroFora" the influential President of EU Parliament's largest group of MEPs, Joseph Daul, expressing, however, the hope that a controversial deal with the head of the Socialist Group of MEPs, Martin Schultz of Germany, might hold for Barroso alone, at a forthcoming vote due to fix the Strasbourg plenary's Agenda.

    But MEPs reportedly just "postponed" for 1 week all their previously scheduled group meetings (See : http://www.euractiv.com/en/future-eu/barroso-unveil-summer-homework-week/article-184825 );

    However, while the choice of a new EU Commission's President by EU Parliament is supposed, according to many MEPs' wish, take place according to EU policy issues, paradoxically, this would mean that Barroso's bid would pass before even the anouncement of France and Germany's "initiatives" for EU's "new Horizons"...

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 ?
