Carlo Vulpio is a journalist. Since the beginning of 2007 he has been engaged with the "Poseidon", "Why Not" and "Toghe Lucane". investigations. He was writing for il Corriere della Sera. On 3 December he was sacked. In his last article he gave the names of magistrates, politicians and entrepreneurs involved in the investigations of the Salerno Prosecutors Office following the denunciation by Luigi De Magistris. Straight after that he received a telephone call from Paolo Mieli, the editor of il Corriere della Sera, telling him he was sacked. There were too many names. The stink was too much to bear even for the readers of il Corriere della Sera.
Mieli, say it here on the Internet before they reduce you to be like the servile newspapers of the powerful with Cassinelli’s fxxk the blogger law. Tell us who telephoned you to invite you to get rid of Vulpio? One of those on the list? A member of the RCS Board of Directors? Or did you do it all on your own? Elsewhere, in other countries in France or in the United States, a gesture like yours would not be appreciated. They would have sent you away. Here they will reward you perhaps by making you the director of TG1. Reading Vulpio’s list, from the CSM, to the Court of Appeal to the Court of Cassation is like lifting up the manhole cover of a sewer. In Italy we are all below any suspicion.

From Carlo Vulpio’s article on 3 December 2008:
It has never happened before in Italy that a Prosecutors Office has been «surrounded» like a fortress of the criminal world. Yesterday it happened to the Catanzaro Prosecutors Office, and for the whole day and right up until late in the evening, it was literally surrounded by a hundred carabinieri and a score of police officers all coming from Salerno. With the carabinieri of the Operational section and the police officers of the DIGOS, there were seven magistrates that entered and among them were the Salerno prosecutor, Luigi Apicella and the leaders of the investigation, Gabriella Nuzzi and Dionigio Verasani. They gave out “avvisi di garanzia” {notifications of impending investigations} and they searched homes and offices of the magistrates of Calabria who had snatched the "Poseidon" and "Why Not" investigations from the former prosecutor Luigi De Magistris (now re-examination judge in Naples) and from the magistrates who inherited these investigations, in order to «dismember them, to disintegrate them and to favour certain investigations», as the Salerno prosecutors have written. Among the “favoured” people under investigation, the former Minister of Justice, Clemente Mastella, the national secretary of the UDC, Lorenzo Cesa, the former governor of Calabria, as well as the former prosecutor of Reggio Calabria, Giuseppe Chiaravalloti, the Guardia di Finanza General, Walter Cretella Lombardo, the former Undersecretary assigned to the CIPE, Giuseppe Galati (Udc), Giancarlo Pittelli, Forza Italia deputy, the boss of the Compagnia delle Opere per il Sud Italia, Antonio Saladino.
But this is just the people from Calabria. The magistrates from Salerno, in fact, are doing investigations in two other directions.


In the search warrant that was put into operation yesterday, 1,700 pages, the prosecutors of Salerno are accusing the following people: - the Catanzaro prosecutor, Mariano Lombardi, the adjunct prosecutor, Salvatore Murone, the current general prosecutor, Dolcino Favi, the parliamentarian Giancarlo Pittelli and «the everywhere man» Antonio Saladino. They are accused of collaborating in corruption of judicial acts – for having “illegally” removed the investigations "Why Not" and "Poseidone" from de Magistris. But they are also accusing the substitute general prosecutor Alfredo Garbati, the substitute general prosecutor at the Court of Appeal Domenico De Lorenzo and the prosecutor Salvatore Curcio for having taken on in inheritance those boiling hot investigations with the intention of destroying them. And it is alleged that the general prosecutor Vincenzo Iannelli and the Section President of the Tribunal Bruno Arcuri got busy with things including the “illegal archiving” of Mastella’s situation.(“whose name on the list of those under investigation was however written out of duty”) but also for having defaming de Magistris and disintegrating him professionally”. Then, the prosecutors from Campania say Iannelli, for a reason dear to his heart, gets the intervention of Chiaravalloti in relation to Patrizia Pasquin, judge at the tribunal of Vibo Valentia, who was then arrested. Thus from one magistrate to another, just like peer to peer.." Carlo Vulpio,

If you do not like the message, kill the messenger.
All the old despots did it!
There's a strong traditional streak in the current dictatorship.
Merry Christmas Carlo Vulpio :(

I couldn't believe my ears when Paolo Mieli said to the interviewer that "The ethic of capitalism is to be well mannered". I wonder if Silvio heard that?

The ethic of capitalism is to be well mannered".

Dear editor of "Il Corriere della sera" please remind your master that capitalists can be fraudsters (Madoff, to name just one), but they cannot afford to be "maleducati" or obscene.

P.S Please remind Silvio of the obscene gesture he made behind a man's back who was leaning on the hood of a car. And please tell Silvio that only the "new-rich" or "parvenue" allow themselves to be seen mimicking porno movements in public -as shown on Youtube.
