Magistrates Waiting to be Judged

detenuto attesa giudizio.jpg

The birth of the electoral lists is about to end. I will read the names of the candidates with interest. If there are any convicts I will point this out on this Blog so that anyone who wants to, can choose the convict they want.

Because in a democracy it’s right that even the convicts have their representation.
Some party secretaries have phoned to ask me my position. To see what sort of wind is blowing in the field of this Blog.
And I’ve decided in the end to make a choice, to give a clear indication of how I’m going to vote:
don’t vote for any party that includes convicts in their electoral list.”

To help the citizens, I’ll publish a list of the parties without convicts in their lists.

The employee Casini has declared that the magistrature must do an internal “clean sweep”, the same magistrature that wants to do a “clean sweep” within the party of Casini. A party that is tiny electorally, but mighty big in the number of those under investigation.

The employee Casini doesn’t consider it correct that a judge should be a candidate to enter Parliament. Any profession is fine for him except a judge.
A convict is better than a judge.
How can we say he’s wrong? The judge knows the laws and when he’s allowed to he even applies them.

This is a good initiative...Though I'm afraid that such list would be very long..and we know it very well: the more a politician is convincted, the more he's considered a victim..the more he can claim for public approval!

sorry, i write again, in a better way

i think that it would be better for an italian blog, to write in italian.

i know that write in english allow to the foreign people to read yours articles, but for the italian people it's not obvious.

thank you ;-)

the daily newspaper LA REPUBBLICA of yesterday had a small article which reported that the Bernando Provenzano's son (B. Provenzano, the 1st boss of Mafia, is fugitive nearly 40 years from Italian justice) has won a grant (38 candidates won it on 300 who applied)...

....A grant to represent the Italian Culture abroad!?! In fact he is actually in Germany (westfalia).

Mr. Pisanu, the Italian Minister of Defence advised "we will talk about it...."

This is another shame on Italy!!

Pietro Grasso, head of the national antimafia, must have been reading Beppe Grillo's blog. Speaking at a recent Communist Rifondazione conference in Palermo, he said he thought it would be a good idea if ballot papers at the next elections had an attachment listing criminal charges of those standing for election, so that each voter could pick the crime he likes best (see - or hear - Grillo's interview with the BBC, 13 (?) December 2005).
Grasso warns that if a voter picks a candidate under investigation for criminal charges, this will give a clear sign to the mafia and throw down the gauntlet to the judiciary.
And just look who takes umbrage at this - Lorenzo Cesa, secretary of the UDC, which just happens to be Tot˛ Cuffaro's party, top of the pops as far as mafia investigations are concerned in recent months. Grasso's statement, he says, is "inappropriate" (sic!).
Grasso warns party leaders that in future their reponsability for allowing infiltration of friends of Cosa Nostra & Co into their party lists will be greater than in the past because of the changes in the electoral laws which deprive citizens of the possibility of selecting their candidate by name.
Grasso went on to complain about the fact that fighting the mafia at present is a Mission Impossible. A bit depressing coming from the head of the antimafia. However, he invites politicians to institute some kind of self-regulation to keep their lists clean.
But - rather than listing the criminal charges against single politicians then, perhaps it might be more "appropriate" for each party to have a sort of collective charge sheet, to see which party has the cleanest record. Otherwise going to vote on the 9th April is going to be a bit like dipping your hand in a tub of sawdust - and winning your very own surprise criminal!
