“Good day to you all.
I don’t know whether you have noticed the superficiality of this debate on morality.
The return of the debate on morality: the newspapers are overflowing with interviews from the various people like Pomicini, De Michelis, Di Donato.
Various relatives of Craxi.... even Capezzone who says that Veltroni should apologise to Bettino Craxi.
The moral issue, as usual, is used to throw each other’s shameful acts at each other, rather than to take a look at them and then to possibly stop doing them.
So much so that the greatest response that the leaders of the PD have managed to get when Berlusconi looked at the moral issue – obviously only looking at their faults and not his own that is just so massive that he cannot even manage to see it, given his height among other things – was “but you brought into Parliament those under investigation and those who already have a criminal conviction”.
Naturally they forgot their own.
The most that they can say is “we have less than you”, as though they can defend themselves or even go directly into attack by saying: “We have fewer of those under investigation and those who already have a criminal conviction than you have.”
What they should be able to say s: “We have none.”
When Grillo and many others proposed this popular initiative law to throw out the convicts from the electoral lists, even though this time the signatures collected this time were the right ones and no one could question them, not even Carnevale, Parliament has taken its time, so much so that they haven’t even got round to a discussion on the topic.
Let’s ignore these long-winded political parties that are clearly unravelling, crumbling, breaking up, without even being aware of it, and let’s see if we can talk about the other great topic that has been occupying the newspapers for about a week.
That is since last Wednesday when the Salerno Prosecutors Office went to Catanzaro to sequester the documents in the “Why Not” investigation and to make it known to a good number of magistrates from Calabria and from Basilicata that they are under investigation for the mega-plot that has been identified against Luigi De Magistris."


Above all it concentrates on three important investigations that De Magistris carried out and according to this procession of people who have been denounced, they are full of every kind of nastiness.
The “Poseidone” investigation, on the purification plant that should have been constructed in Calabria that were financed by the European Union with 800 million euro and with not even one having been seen.
The investigation into the “toghe lucane “ {the judges of Basilicata}, for the business groups that connect the magistrates in Basilicata, for which it is Catanzaro that has the competency to investigate which is why De Magistris was doing the investigation. And then the “Why Not” investigation, the one that as well as the various fixers, former-P2 –members, secret service officials, Finance Police officials, politicians, colluding journalists, some passing mafia-people, had as its main defendant Antonio Saladino, the head of the Compagnia delle Opere that is the financial-business arm of “Comunione e Liberazione” {Communion and Liberation}.


Luckily the Catanzaro magistrates cannot investigate themselves. They are investigated by those from Salerno. If then, those in Salerno commit irregularities, they are investigated by Naples. And Rome investigates Naples, and Perugia investigates Rome and so on.


But even De Magistris denounced things to those in Salerno: he in turn denounced his superiors and some of the people he is investigating and their lawyers and journalists who are following the people he is investigating and his superiors, who according to him are considered to have discredited, defamed, isolated and expropriated his investigations.
Basically, that they first created the conditions to first remove the investigations and then to remove him himself.
So the Salerno magistrates cannot do otherwise, because they received these denunciations from De Magistris and against De Magistris, since it is within their competency they have to follow up to see which have foundations and which do not. The law obliges them to do that. They are obliged to take action.
If you receive a denunciation, you are obliged to verify it.
Thus they start work, and for months and months no one knows anything about what is being done in Salerno. They work silently, no one has ever seen them on TV, no one has heard them being talked about, no one even knows what the prosecutors Gabriella Nuzi and Dionigi Verasani and their line manager look like.


Luckily, truth is stronger than any pressure, so even when a door is closed on it, it comes out of the window, when the window is closed, truth breaks through the glass.
Thus, whoever thought they could put a lid on the De Magistris case and the Forleo one that is connected with it, is once more worried because having sent away the two magistrates, the truth is coming out again even stronger than before.
For those who want to have an in-depth knowledge, I would like to suggest some books for Christmas: “Roba Nostra” by Carlo Vulpio, published by Il Saggiatore; “Il caso De Magistris”, by Antonio Massari published by Aliberti; “Il caso Forleo”, also by Antonio Massari and published by Aliberti.
Then there’s our old “Toghe Rotte” by Bruno Tinti, that explains the mechanisms, and there’s our “Mani Sporche” where there is the beginning of the De Magistris case. Then all the developments are to be found in a book that is about to come out “Per chi suona la banana” published for Garzanti. That collects together the articles that I devoted to these issues in the newspaper l'Unità.
Greetings to you, and as usual, after you have read this, spread the word!"

The devil in the details!
Credibility, Accountability and Responsibility!!!!!!!!!!!!
Without the above listed Basic Requirement, Italy has become what it is today and for the foreseeable future I venture a guess, it will get worst.
The future looks bright wear very thick shades.

Please follow this link: it's a fresh and re-freshing story, compared to the "nothing new under the sun "news that come from Italy.

I'm sure that there will be the usual
idiot in the rank of the Party on the Right, who thinks that the "communist" Magistrate have landed in Illinois...
