Mak Journalists: EU Report on Macedonia Full of Errors
Tuesday, 18 October 2011
Macedonian journalist from Skopje based daily newspaper "Dnevnik" took the time and read the 80 page EU repport on Macedonia's progress. What the daily found in the report stunned them.
There has been no reaction from the Macedonian Government yet, wouldn't be far fetched to state no Government official has read the 80 pages, especially now that the Emir of Qatar is visiting where the main topic is "business".
What Dnevnik found in the EU repport can be simply described as "surprising, unprofessional, lies, misinformation...".
Kole Casule, ex foreign Minister, admits he hasn't read the report, but based on the speech of ex communist and present EU Commissioner Stefan File this is what he had to say: "Fule's speech is interesting, to say the least. Brussels claims there is no progress in our reforms, gives examples which are incorrect, and then says that everything is ok if we just changed our name. Macedonia either fulfils the EU criteria or it doesn't, this is not a bazaa
What does Brussels say in its 80 page report?
Keep in mind that Greek MP with German passport Jorgo Chatzirmakakis contributed to this report. Chatzirmakakis recently had his PhD degree taken away from the University of Bonn due to plagiarism. This is the same man who called Mak journalists "malakes". He was selected on purpose by Brussels to write reports on Macedonia, to appease Greece, but more on that later.
The Report claims the Macedonian special forces Tigers had imprisoned someone that was not guilty. As a source, Brussels cites a sign protester was carrying that said the man was not guilty. I truly wish this was a joke, but it isn't, it's in the report. To make matters worse, the man was arrested by the 'Alphas', not the 'Tigers' and was found guilty in Court.
Brussels (un)knowingly and (un)intentionally goes on to mistake number two. In the report, it says Macedonia needs a law for protection of intellectual property! The truth is Macedonia had implemented the law for intellectual property back in 2009.
The (un)intentional mistakes continue in the area where Macedonia is the strongest in the region, in its reforms. The report states Macedonia needs to implement a law from the European Convention for protection of data and personal information. Macedonia has implemented this law six years ago, back in 2005
!!! It would appear as if Brussels copied and pasted a report from 10 years ago and stamped 2011 on it! Chatzirmakakis would know.
Brussels wouldn't be Brussels if it doesn't have a section on homosexuality. In the report it states Macedonia must remove from its books sentences that state 'homosexuality is a disease'. The only challenge as the journalists from Dnevnik stated is "no one in Macedonia knows just what the hell is Brussels talking about and where are these Books" that are mentioned in the report.
We could go on and on for 80 pages, the entire length of the EU report.
Although the EU does have an official criteria of admitting nations to the EU, we certainly saw the criteria in action when Bulgaria and Romania were admitted (pun intended), Brussels still doesn't have the right to insult Macedonia at every opportunity and provide un-factual reports produced to appease one of their bankrupt members.
Sarkozy and Merkel support an EU member (GR) because if it goes down, so will 100s of Billions of Euros owed to German and French Banks who in turn fund their party's/presidential campaigns.
Sarko and Merko try to appease GR by slamming Macedonia through reports thus showing they care for GR. Little that our friends to the south know Sarko and Merko are simply trying to save their donor's (banksters) money.
Regardless, none of this gives Brussels the right to produce BS reports that look as if they were drafted in Starbucks. Lastly, Chatzirmakakis when talking about VMRO wrote "Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization". Forgot to remove the "Macedonian" part. Oversight on his part, possibly because he plagiarized that from somewhere.
The terrible thing for Brussels in all this is they have shown their true face (again) and thus lost all respect, credibility and any trust Macedonians may have had in them as an 'institution'.
