*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/(partly UpDated)/- It's by a Call to "Resist" (Criminals') "attempt to create Fear and division", that PanEuropean CoE's Parliamentary Assembly's President, Liliane Maury-Pasquier, reacted Today to the Bomb "Attack" in France's Lyon city, which Wounded more than 13 innocent Civilian People, (including 9 Women with a Young Girl aged 8 y.o.), several of whom need Chirurgical Operations to get rid of sharp Metal objects inserted in their Feet, and that French Police is currently Investigating as Murder Attempts linked to Terrorism.

- In that Press Release, send to CoE's Journalists, including "Eurofora", Pasquier, (a Swiss living at nearby Geneva, close to French Lyon), also expresses her "Sympathy and Solidarity to the Wounded and their Family, a well as to the People of Lyon and the French Authorities".

- While about 150 Agents are reportedly Searching to UnMask a Suspect, (cought in Surveillance Video, with his Face grossly Hidden, dressed in Black and White, but wearing a kind of "Bermuda" or Djellaba over his Bare Feet), who left a Parcel there where a makeshift Bomb with Nails, etc, erupted shortly Afterwards, with Explosives made out of "Acetone Peroxide, TATP", notiously "very often" used by Islamist Terrorists for Deadly Attacks in Europe, as, f.ex., in Paris and Saint Denis (2015), Brussels (2016), Manchester and London (UK), Catalonia (Spain) on 2017, etc, but known also to others, (as Newspaper "Le Parisien" revealed, citting Sources close to Paris' Investigators),

- Pasquier, however, urged, "Whoever is Responsible for this Explosion", to Reply mainly "by Developing a Democratic and united Society", as concluded the experienced former Chair of CoE Assembly's (PACE) Socialist Group, according to that Text, which curiously ommits the usual call for all those responsible for such a bloody violen Crime to be Found and Punished, (according to ECHR's established case-law), Exceptionaly send by a Turkish origin PACE's Agent.

- Meanwhile, French President Macron had immediately qualified Lyon's Bloody Explosion as an "Attack", right from the Start, while, Later-on, the National Press Agency "AFP", and traditional Newspaper "LeParisien", etc., revealed that, "for the Judges and specialized Policemen, this attack certainly Aimed to Kill"...

Indeed, inter alia, the Chosen Location for the Explosion of that Nail Bomb was at a kind of Busy "Shopping Center", in a Cross-Roads including a Bakery, a Pharmacy, Banks, Shoes and Clothe's shops, as well as Many Restaurants, near 2 Historic Christian Churches and Lyon's Central Touristic Area, at one of the Biggest Pedestrian Streets in Europe, classified UNESCO, etc., so that a lot of People should, normally, pass from there, particularly a Friday Afternoon.

I.e., obviously, a potentially "Dangerous" place for various Aggressions Targetting Civilian People, (including, f.ex., recently, the reported Rape of a Woman, there, while even Today, 9 or 10 among the 13 Victims, Hit and Wounded by that Terror Attack, were ...Women and a small Girl, by a Coincidence, the Same Day of CoE's International Conference on Violence and Discriminations against Women was organized, by the French Presidency of the CoE and the G7, in Strasbourg ! See: ...).

Especially in the current "Context of High Risks for Terrorism", as French JHA deputy Minister Laurent Nunez had Recently Warned, in relation with his Reply to a relevant "Eurofora"s Question, at a Press-point in Strasbourg, already last November 2018, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/frenchjhavministeronstrasbourgsecurity.html), just a few Weeks Before a Deadly Islamist Terrorist Attack, exactly in Strasbourg's "Christmas Market", during EU Parliament's Plenary Session of December 2018, (See: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentlockedinbyterrorattack.html).

So that, Today, French JHA, Christophe Castaner himself, announced that "Security will be Upgraded in Areas welcoming the Public", etc.

+ (Partly UPDATED) And, finally, after a lot of Criticism and Protests, the French Police, at last decided, Later-on,, and managed to publish 2 NEW, much Better PHOTOS of that main Suspect, who had been cought in CCTV : Now, f.ex., you can see that he did Not have a Mask, but a long Beard; that he didn't have a Djellaba, but really a "Bermuda"; that his Clothes were Not Black and White, but "Green" (Dark and Light) ; even a part of his Face could, at last, be Now seen ! After all this Time curiously Lost, at the Eve of Important European Elections, from Now-on, a fully-fledged Search and Identification of that Suspect number 1, could, at last, really Start...

Recent Islamist Terrorist Attacks cowardly Targetting innocent and defenseless Civilian People, (including, f.ex., that which killed 5 and Wounded a Dozen in Strasbourg, during EU Parliament's Plenary Session of December 2018 : See http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentlockedinbyterrorattack.html), had already shown that ISIS' and/or other Terror Gangs had Changed their Tactics, and, instead of continuously Aggressing People up to the End, (i.e. via "Suicide"-like Attacks), on the Contrary, the had nowadays decided to Stop Killing/Wounding People after a some Time, and Run to Hide and Escape themselves, keeping their Weapons and covering up their Accomplishes. 

As long as, also, this Lyon's Nail Bomber still remains on the Run, without having been Neither Cought, and Not Even Identified, inevitably, such a Terrorist is really, still "Dangerous", as the French Police has now Warned Everybody, in its Official Announcements, urging Civilian People, f.ex., to "do Not Intervene Alone", if they find him in front of them...

lyon_attack_bbc_notes_bad_photo_initially_given_by_police_400 

However, it wasN"t yet Explained at all for which real Reason someone inside the Police had took the Strange Initiative to Hide the Face of the Wanted Lyon's nail Bomber suspect number 1, (apparently by Covering his Face with a Dark Paint: See that 1st Official Announcement, Supra), during More than 1 Day ! 

lyon_attenat_killer_photo_more_clear_400 

But, during all this Time, while Searches were practically Obstructed thus, obviously, a lot of Negative Consequences might have occured : F.ex. Destruction of Evidence, Hidding of Weapons/Bomb Explosives, and/or of eventual Accomplishes, Escape of the Bloody Nail Bomber, more, additional Crimes, etc...

lyon_attack_wounded_victim_samu_400 

In General, as a matter of Principle, Hidding the Truth to the People, (withOut any known Excuse), about Urgently needed, Vital Information on Bloody Terrorists, is Not Good Tactics, but a Bad, InEfficient, Anti-Democratic and even Dangerous Blunder, which may have UnPredictable and/or Irreversible Consequences. 

lyon_attack_woman_wounded_at_head_400 

Particularly when the Number 1 Concern of all EU Citizens is the Need to Protect them from recently WideSpread, bloody Islamist Terrorist Attacks, cowardly Targetting Civilians, as latest Polls have revealed, (See, f.ex.: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/coespokesmanonrussia.html).

And if to all this is Added even an UnExpected and UnExplained, Sudden Exclusion of such important Topics from any serious Discussion at the unique EU Parliament's Debate between Leading Candidates in the 2019 EU Elections, (as we just scandalously saw Recently: http://www.eurofora.net/newsflashes/news/euparliamentelectoraldebatemaimed.html),

=> then, all Real Europeans feel that an Historic Time has come to struggle for real Democracy, and the survival and development of their Civilisation, with a Big Political Move, (of a Different Star from what some think), which, as De Gaulle said for France and the World, would now, inevitably, be also from Europe for Humanity, (against Barbary)...

    An "Eugenic" loophole Amendment, which might expose to Dangers reminiscent of "3rd Reich's" notorious Genetic Abuses, hidden at the last minute inside an otherwise Good, larger Health policy Package scheduled to be voted on Thursday, was strongly denounced by a coalition of MEPs from various Political Groups and Countries, in a Press Conference held this afternoon at EU Parliament in Strasbourg.

    Mainly calling to "Select Human Embryos", via "Genetic Counselling" and "pre-implantation" Techniques including "Genetic Tests", in order to "Eradicate Hereditary rare Diseases", it might open ways to Dangerous Practices in Future, they denounced in substance.

    But they also made it clear that a much larger Report inside which this Controversial Amendment "No 15" was added in dubious circumstances, officialy destinated to struggle against "Rare Diseases", and drafted by Professor Antonios Trakatellis, was otherwise "an Excellent Report", aiming at a "completely Uncontroversial target" of Health policy on which "all MEPs and Experts are united, believing that Europe should act" to protect People's Health (See "EuroFora"'s earlier News).

    The controversy came at a particularly delicate moment for the EU in relation to Citizens, at the eve of June 2009 EU Elections, and shortly before Ireland re-votes for "Lisbon Treaty"..    

- Denouncing risks of "an Eugenic demand, very similar to what we had during the 3rd Reich in Germany, but now coming from some Scientisists themselves", German ChristianDemocrat/EPP MEP Dr. Peter Liese stressed that critical MEPs were against "Eugenic" engineering with "Selection of Human Embryos", and anything which might ultimately lead up to to a "Selection of Human Race". It doesn't help to "eradicate" Human Lives, he added.


    Several Experts and NGOs expressed "Deep Concern", as f;ex. DR M.C. Cornel of the "European Society of Human Genetics", which stressed, on this occasion, that "the importance of Non-Directiveness in Reproductive issues is a Central characteristic of Human Genetics, after the Atrocities committed in the name of Genetics in the first half or the 20th Century".

     - "This is completely Unacceptable", stressed Italian Liberal MEP Vittorio Prodi, on the Controversial Amendment, also because pushes to "eliminate early Human Life", as he noted.

     - "This opens a Dangerous Road, rather a Motorway", denounced Danish MEP Mrs Margrette Auken, from the "Greens", observing that various similar attempts were made in the Past "not only in Germany, but also in several other Countries, "even at the 1970ies", "f.ex. on forced Sterilisation of Roma" People, and other criticisable situations f.ex. in the UK, in Sweden, etc. as she said.

    + Other NGOs, as f.ex. "LebenHilfe" from Berlin, added that, among various other Risks, could also be that, by exploiting the pre-implantation Genetic Diagnostics and the Selection of "healthy" Embryos, some may "propagate" several "Eugenic" aims, starting f.ex. by pushing to eradicate Human Livies which might "Cost too much" to preserve, ultimately exposing to dangers reminiscent of the "3rd Reich"'s atrocious abuses.

    In consequence, ChristianDemocrats/EPP and "Green" MEPs "decided by Majority to vote against" this Controversial Amendment, anounced to Journalists the 5 MEPs who participated in the Press Conference, representing a wide spectrum, from Liberals to "Greens" and ChristianDemocrats, and from Hungary, Italy, Germany and Danemark up to Ireland (Gay Mitchell), etc.
----------------------------------
    Hungarian ChristianDemocrat MEP Laszlo Surjan said "that it was "Suddenly, at the End of the Procedure" in Committee, that "appeared this (Controversial) Amendment, which has nothing to do" with the main purpose of the Report, on which all agreed.

    He denounced an "Unhonest" move, and called to "avoid this kind of unacceptable situations". Nobody should "Select People", Surjan stressed.

    - "We (MEPs) had No Chance to Discuss" this last-minute Amendment earlier added at a Committee's level, said German MEP Peter Liese

    Speaking to "EuroFora", Dr. Liese, the Spokesman of the ChristianDemocrat/EPP Group in EU Parliament, said that MEPs didn't oppose other references of the Report f.ex. on "Genetic Tests", because they were "no proposals" to impose them, while, on the contrary, there was "a Problem" if anyone attempted to "impose" f.ex. this or that Genetic Technique and "Genetic Counselling", etc. to the People on human reproduction.
-------------
The precise Text :
-----------------
    Controversial parts of Amendment No 15 ask mainly "to lead finally to the Eradication" of "Hereditary" "rare diseases", "through Genetic Counselling .., and ..pre-Implantation Selection of healthy Embryos".

    But  EU Rapporteur Professor Trakatellis, said to "EuroFora" that fears should be alleviated by Guarantees that all this should be done only "where appropriate", when it's "not contrary to existing National Law", and "always on a Voluntary basis", according to other Parts of the Amendment.

    He stressed that the main aim was to allow "a free and informed choice of persons involved", without imposing them anything :  - "It's not an obligatory, but advisary" text, he said.

    To make that point clear, he was ready, in agreement with many MEPs, to eventually drop at least that part of the controversial Amendment which initially called for "efforts to ..lead finally to the Eradication of those rare diseases" "which are Hereditary".

    But, until late Wednesday evening, reportedly together with many other MEPs, he stood by all the rest of the controversial Amendment, (fex. on the "Genetic Counselling" and the "pre-implantation Selection of healthy Embryos"), so that critical MEPs, going from ChristianDemocrats as Dr. Liese, to "Greens" or "Ind/Dem", observed to "EuroFora" that "this was not enough" to close the dangerous loophole.

    Particularly since, as Professor Trakatellis noted himself, "this is already allowed to the U.K.", and "other National Legislations would probably follow, sooner or later" in a similar direction. As for a general call to "Eradicate Hereditary rare Diseases", this "should happen, at any case, in practice, de facto", to protect public Health.

    On the contrary, "our goal should be to help patients suffering from rare diseases, not to eradicate the patients. In case of genetic disease risk, the decision should not be guided by scenarios" made by politicians. "Perents who may decide to accept a child, even if handicapped or with genetic disease, must be respected and supported with solidarity", critical MEPs stated.

    - "Any Pressure" to "a patient or couple (who "should be able to make an informed choice consistent with their own values"),"from health Professionals, Public Health Policies or Governemental Institutions, or Society at large, should be avoided", stresses the "European Society for Human Genetics".

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

Each MEP's vote will be registered !

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

The Socialist Group requested a "Split vote" on the Amendment 15, first without, and afterwards with the words "lead finally to the Eradication" etc.


    But the first "split vote" leaves intact all the other parts of the Controversial Amendment, (i.e. "Genetic Counselling", "Selection of healthy Embryos", etc).

    That's why, 3 Groups of MEPs : ChristianDemocrats/EPP, "Greens/EFA", and "Ind/Dem", have asked for "Roll Call Votes", on everything regarding the Controversial Amendment No 15, and on the final outcome of the resulting Report as amended, which will register all the individual positions to be taken by each MEP.   

Something which will obviously make each MEP think twice before voting for one or another choice, to be sure that he/she will make the right choice in front of EU Citizens, particularly at these pre-Election times...


    Crucial Votes were scheduled between 12 Noon and 1 p.m. local Strasbourg time, in the middle of a long series of various other Reports, and after a long Public Debate on the larger Health policy package, from 9 to 11.50 am.

    The specific Report inside which was hidden the controversial Amendment is due to be debated between 11 and 12 am.

    So that more last-minute Surprises may not be excluded a priori...

    Particularly at the present Historic moment, when even the Institutional Future of the EU depends on the result of a second Referendum on "Lisbon Treaty", later this year, in ...Ireland, a mainly Catholic country, where People are particularly sensitive in such kind of socio-cultural and values issues...
