    UCJ denounces threats against T/C journalists

    Nicosia, Oct 3 (CNA) -- The Union of Cyprus Journalists (UCJ) strongly denounces the life threats against two journalists of the Turkish Cypriot newspaper ''Africa'', Sener Levent and Ali Osman, as well as the methods that certain fascist elements in the Turkish-occupied northern part of the island employ in their effort to gag freedom of expression.

    The UCJ calls upon United Nations and European Union representatives as well as the International Federation of Journalists to act immediately in order to secure that the life and well being of ''Africa's'' journalists is not threatened and their inalienable right to freedom of expression is respected.

    EU leaders discuss Europe's future

    by Maria Myles

    Rome, Oct 3 (CNA) -- Heads of state and government from the 15 EU members and the ten acceding countries are called upon tomorrow to begin a fine balancing act on the text of the draft constitutional treaty, prepared by the European Convention, with a view at concluding this task if possible by December this year.

    Cyprus, an acceding country, is represented at the Rome extraordinary summit of heads of state and government for the opening of the Intergovernmental Conference (IGC) by President Tassos Papadopoulos, who arrives in the Italian capital later today.

    EU leaders will confer on Saturday morning for about three hours at the Palazzo dei Congressi before they hand over the work to their foreign ministers for the first working session of the IGC.

    The key issues on which there is a degree of dissent among participating countries relate to the composition of the European Commission, the election of the President of the European Council, the President of the Commission, the make up of the European Parliament and the competencies of the proposed institutions.

    Outlining his positions on the draft treaty, President Papadopoulos has said there were various provisions he disagrees with.

    Cyprus favours the maintenance of what was agreed in the EU summit in Nice with regard to the composition of the Commission, namely that each member state must have its own commissioner.

    Nicosia disagrees with the suggestion that as of 2009 some commissioners will have the right to vote while others will not, because such an arrangement would be tantamount to some countries having a commissioner who is nothing more than a well-paid upgraded ambassador, instead of a true representative of his country in the EUs executive body.

    President Papadopoulos also believes that the competencies and the duties of the President of the EU Council should be clearly defined to avoid any conflict of competencies with the Commission President.

    On the composition of the European Parliament, Nicosia disagrees with the proposed provision to reduce the number of Euro MPs for small countries to four. According to the Nice treaty Cyprus is set to have six members at the European Parliament.
