A response to my post “ Mug Shots” from the Popolari-UDEUR, the big party from Ceppaloni, says:
- the pardon is not a tool in the hands of the Minister of Justice, but of the whole Parliament, that approved it with a majority of 800 votes (nothing to do with us – editor).
- dramatic facts like those of Treviso. Cruel crimes, committed by scoundrels, who are and who remain such, independently of the measures that they have benefited from (the guilt is of the scoundrel, not of the pardon - editor) Mastella, they have left you alone with the hot potato; even your own folk are keeping their distance. You’ve only got Benigni and the parable of the centurion.
I’m publishing the letter from the Meetup of Treviso which is near to the village of Gorgo al Monticano where the massacre took place.

“Dear Beppe,
After we felt the nausea and the anguish for the massacre in Gorgo al Monticano, we were disturbed to learn that one of the three, previously convicted of rape, was out of prison because of the pardon” and straight away we thought that the responsibility for what has happened was not only to be attributed to the barbarous ones who executed the double murder, but also to those who had allowed the assassins to go back and commit crime. “They must lock them up and throw away the key” “ they were the best grandparents in the world”: these are the words of the youngsters Laura and Alessio, aged 10 and 9, who saw their grandparents killed in that cruel way.
When we got to know that one of the perpetrators of the crime was at large thanks to the pardon, added to the dismay, was anger and the fear that similar facts can happen again.
We believe that your offer of legal help to the family members of the victims in Gorgo to take out an action against the Minister of Justice is a stimulus and a help to nail those who promoted the pardon to their responsibilities: the pardon was voted for against the wishes of the majority of the citizens.
As for the Popolari-Udeur who gave themselves permission to criticize you, we ask if they remember article 110 of the Constitution that gives the Minister of Justice the task of looking after “the organisation and the functioning of the services relating to justice.”. To whom should we turn? To the Minister of Equal Opportunity?
Everyone well remembers who voted for the pardon, that is everyone apart from IDV, Lega, AN and Pdci and if the Honourable Mastella, apart from having voted in favour of the pardon also holds the position of Minister of Justice he must accept all the problems that he has created and is still creating for the population. It is stated that the pardon was asked for by John Paul II. John Paul II was dead when Parliament approved the “disgraceful” law for the pardon; in any case he asked for more humane conditions for the prisoners but not their liberation…..
As Marco Travaglio has written to Minister Amato: “It is true that the prisons were bursting at the seams, but there were other things that could have been done. It would have been enough to tell the truth. Instead, the Minister of Justice, Clemente Mastella announced that to release 15,000 prisoners it was necessary to have a pardon of 3 years. Experts like D'Ambrosio stated that with a pardon of 3 years at least double that number would have walked free and that for 15,000 it was enough to have one year, or at the most 2 years.” Now, Travaglio went on: “It is discovered that in 9 months those who left prison were 26,201 convicts plus at least 10,000 people awaiting trial or awaiting sentencing: making at least 100% more than the number announced.”
The pardon has produced a crime wave that cannot be stopped. One of the three arrested for the murder in Gorgo stated: Anyway you won’t manage to keep me in prison for more than a few days”… he is still convinced that he can get away with it, as has happened on previous occasions since he arrived in Italy. The victims of the pardon are waiting for compensation both moral and material from whoever looks after “the organisation and the functioning of the services relating to justice.”
While waiting, we hope that the parliamentarians give an example by doing without their body guards to give them to the Italian citizens who are defenceless and exposed to attacks from those who have been “pardoned”. Maurizio

Hello everyone,
The scary part of the infamous Green Book issued by Mr. TPS is about The Justice Department (Any wonder why?).
It is the costlier in the whole Europe, the most Inefficient and it is walloping 17% of State expenses.
For this Services?
The number of Judges went up by 15% in 5 years.
Costs went up by 140% in 5 years.
Average trial time is the highest in Europe?
The Minister Mr. Mastella wants more money?
Nobody goes to jail in Italy?
This is wonderland for thief, assassins, speculators, politicians and everyone that wants to perpetrate a crime on Citizens without the Protection of The Law.
Good luck and good night

Thanks Beppe for all your enlightenings about the Italian society, Mastella Is from a culture that is far away from the civilization and with Mastella there is a really good part of italians.
Now the problem is that nobody rise against him, that is why you should be santified.
All the troubles caused by the political/mafia class are more than enought for a popolar insurrection, but why the italian peaple don't react? Because the system of the recommendations for work positions condupted by the politicians is soo radicated that at the end nobody will rise agaist the corruption. Almost every family has to compromise with politicians (low level) in order to obtain a work position (of any kind), as this occur the family vote the politician and stay calm, the politician belonging to a low level, in the same way has to compromise with the politician belonging to high level (parliament).
In my knowledge this is called mafia.
I really hope your Vday will be a success,but if not you know now why. It will be a really big happening but I have been in Italy on August and no news on TV were talking about it. Of course if you dont succeed there is no solution for that country, that is why choose an other one :)
Great job Beppe. Sudenly I cant sign for the Vday as I am abroad.
