Letter from the M5S to Minister Orlando calling for an Anti-Corruption Law #viaicorrottiora

Dear Minister of Justice, Andrea Orlando,

The really serious situations that have come to light in the last few weeks demonstrate the existence of a system of corruption that is rooted and consolidated in Italian politics. A system that is mainly financed via the contracts for the big public works projects that bypass the normal competition procedures: a system that involves people holding key positions in the Italian establishment. Unfortunately, corruption is ingrained in the political and entrepreneurial systems in Italy. We don’t need extraordinary remedies, but we do need a coherent and carefully designed intervention.
There’s a real abyss of corruption that sucks up the money from the people of Italy. Corruption costs our country about 60 billion euro a year, as was pointed out by the president of the Court of Accounts, Luigi Giampaolino, in 2012.
Italian citizens need to know that public money is not ending up in the pockets of thieves and wheeler-dealers. The 5 Star MoVement has already presented an anti-corruption package to Parliament. This was done in June 2013 and it has even succeeded in getting an acceleration of the discussion in the Senate.
Unfortunately, the announcement of a government draft law, as mentioned by Ministro Boschi, has blocked the discussion in the Senate and is putting at risk the chance of getting an immediate result that is needed now and this is something that cannot be put off to a later date. We now have the possibility of turning words into actions with an unprecedented attack on law breaking.
We are ready to do this. Our proposals have already been presented and we are thus asking for a comparison of the content and within two weeks, Parliament must give a response to the citizens on the topic of the rule of law.
We are thus making an official request for a public meeting some time tomorrow. The 5 Star MoVement wants to draw the attention of the Government to an anti-corruption package made up of clear regulations, that are strict and effective, and it is vital that we have a discussion on this package.
We are talking about regulations that relate to essential elements:
1) Fraudulent corporate accounting practices;
2) Money laundering by the protagonist or by using third parties;
3) Increasing the severity of the punishment for offences against the public administration;
4) Statute of Limitations;
5) Increasing the severity of the punishment for financial and corporate offences;
6) Conflict of interests
We are in no doubt that you are ready and willing to discuss these matters. The battle against corruption, that translates into a battle for honesty, for the rule of law, and for transparency, is the best opportunity to demonstrate this. Parliament needs to be given back the opportunity to swiftly tackle the emergency we are facing in dealing with corruption. We are up for this."

M5S in the Lower House and in the Senate

More Evidence U.S. Funds al-Qaeda Terrorists in Syria

The US government trained, armed, funded and supported Osama bin Laden and his followers in Afghanistan during the cold war. With a huge investment of $3,000,000,000 (three billion US dollars), the CIA effectively created and nurtured bin Laden's al-Qaeda terrorist network using American tax-payers money. Afghanistan is one of the world's poorest countries, where such an enormous sum sum of money would have had extraordinary value.
