*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 !

    The recent paradox of freezing EU Talks with front-runner Croatia, while continuing controversial EU - Turkey talks, despite Zagreb's acceptance of Refugees' Human Rights to return, that Ankara refuses fex. in Cyprus, while both have "Good Neighborhood" problems vis a vis Slovenia, or Greece, Cyprus and Armenia respectively, can it be justified by the non-fullfilment of EU criteria, as Slovenia says, or, is it "Double Standards" ?    

The question became unavoidable after statements by Presidents of Slovenia and Croatia, Tuerk and Mesic, respectively, to "EuroFora", exclusively or among Strasbourg's journalists this week at the CoE, on the sidelines of its 2009 Summer University for Political Schools, which topically brought them together as successive key-note speakers.


    Comming only a few Months before EU checks Turkey's compliance to its commitments on Cyprus, etc., scheduled for December 2009, this obviously has a special importance for the coherence of EU Enlargement's principles.

     Suspension of EU Negotiations is a normal consequence in case of a Candidate Country's failure to fullfil EU Conditions, such as "Good Neighborhood relations", stressed at first Slovenian President Danilo Tuerk, current CoE's chair.

    But, regarding EU's Criteria,  there shouldn't be any "Double Standards",  reacted Croatian President Stjepan Mesic, commenting the fact that Turkey's controversial EU negotiations continue, while they were recently "freezed" in the case of Croatia, an "unquestionably European Country", which oficially accepts to respect Refugees Human Rights, contrary to Ankara's notorious refusals or reluctance.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           - "EU itself has set as a Criterium (for EU Enlargement) the "Good Neighborhood relations",  and their absence justifies the "Suspension" EU Negotiations, (f.ex. with Croatia), because of a Border dispute affecting the territorial integrity of an EU Member Country, stressed Slovenian President, Danilo Tuerk, CoE's Chairman in office (May - November 2009), speaking to Journalists in Strasbourg including "EuroFora".    

Questioned earlier what "consequences on EU's Enlargement policy" can have the "Ban on EU Membership Negotiations", imposed to Croatia, Tuerk replied that "this question comes down to the fulfillement of (EU) Criteria for membership. One has to look at each Candidate Country ., from the point of view whether it fullfils the Criteria that EU has set. One of them are Good Neighborhood Relations, I'd like to remind. And also, there are other factors, such as Justice, Home affairs, Rule of Law, and others".


    - "Now, ..Candidate Countries are at Different Levels of fulfillement of Criteria", he observed.

    - " Croatia is obviously the closest to that. I'm rather optimistic : I think that in the coming Months we'll have an opportunity to look at all these issues constructively and hopefully we'll be able to make progress". "My main concern, at this point, is the situation in Bosnia : We haven't seen enough progres domesticaly. We haven't seen enough during ..political parties within their country.We need a New Energy, a new energetic move towards the Candidature for EU membership. "Other (Western Balkan) Countries (Serbia, Montenegro, FYROM, Albania) have been making soaring Progress, and I think that they should be ready, in a few Years, for the Candidate status".

    - "As far as the Western Balkans are concerned, .. nobody should be left outside" the EU, Slovenian's President concluded, ommitting to mention Turkey's controversial EU bid.

    - "This process may be seen as Slow, but..  Slovenia has also has also been exposed to various "Booms of Slowness" in our accession period. But now we can say that the process was relatively quick, because changes which occur after becoming EU member, are quite large, and they require proper Preparations before the (EU) membership becomes a new factor, an impacting line for a new (EU) member country".
----------------------------

EU "Solidarity" ?
------------------------------   

Slovenian statements made some participants from certain 3rd Countries as FYROM, etc. claim that "the Principle of EU Solidarity" would "produce a.. rising European Union Nationalism (sic !), against Non-EU Countries", as they said, asking unhappy foreign countries to form a "bloc" to exert pressure on the EU...    

But Croatian President Stjepan Mesic dismissed that, supporting "EU Integration", "after the Economy also in Political" issues, as "the achievement" of our times. In EU there is "diversity, but it's United", he stressed, "EU has to be United so that it can become a central factor of Peace" also at the surrounding areas, he replied.

Speaking later exclusively to "EuroFora", the experienced twice President of Croatia, former President of the International "Non-Aligned" movement, denounced "Double Standards" in the way EU treats recently Croatia compared to Turkey :   

 - "I think that there shouldn't be Double Standards", stressed the Croatian President, in reply to a Question comparing the freeze of EU - Croatia talks, with the continuation of EU - Turkey talks, despite the fact that Croatia is an "unquestionably European country", while Turkey's EU bid is notoriously controversial.


    Mesic was reacting to the observation that, even if he confirmed his "respect of Refugees' Human Rights to return, etc. (See infra), nevertheless, EU talks are suspended with Croatia.. While for oher, controversial candidates, who refuse to respect Refugees' Rights to return, etc., as fex. Turkey does in occupied Cyprus and elsewhere, EU negotiations continue".

    - "I believe that Croatia's accession will confirm that all European Countries who fulfill all of the Conditions and achieve European Standards, have to join the EU. There shouldn't be any Double Standards", went on to add in reply President Mesic.

    In this relation, Croatia's President found "of paramount importance", CoE's "mechanisms enforcing ECHR's judgements"
    
    - "On Refugees and Displaced persons, the process will be completed only after the last person demanding to return will be allowed to do so !", President Mesic Croatia stressed earlier, setting a general standard of obvious importance also for otherr candidates, as f.ex. Turkey, often accused to exclude or heavily restrict Greek Cypriot Displaced persons' return to their Family Homes and ancestral land, provoke difficulties to Turkish-Kurd IDPs return to their home regions at the South-East, etc.

    Some "2.000 People are still reported Missing" in former Yugoslavia, for some Years, (as in Cyprus, modern Europe's oldest case, for 3 Decades. Nagorno-Karabach, Tcecnya in Russia, etc, more recently), and Investigations "will only be completed after establishing the fate of the last one of them", he added.
    
    Speaking earlier on "War Crimes", President Mesic stressed that "Leaders are responsible for (the) Wars (of the Past), not the People", and called against Impunity :  "Individuals have to be held Responsible for Crimes. International Penal Tribunals have to persecute those individuals", perpetrators of War Crimes, he underlined.

    Such statements naturally made Mesic rather popular at ECHR, whose President, French EuroJudge, Professor Jean-Paul Costa, looked particularly smiling when he welcomed him later on Wednesday afternoon, after Slovenian President Daniko Tuerk earlier this week.
