Anyone who saw the TV programme Report by Milena Gabanelli last Sunday evening dealingwith Cremonini, with the announcement of the death of a 12 year old boy in Moscow because of food poisoning and formal remonstration of the Government of Cuba for tinned meat in a bad condition imported from Italy and rejected to be sent back to its destination but instead diverted to Africa, will have thought that Italy has arrived at the terminus.
Even more so because the tins exploded in Cuba, why send them to Africa and not directly to Iraq as weapons of mass destruction?
I believe that the facts described in the programme make us feel bad, they make us think of being elsewhere, in a clean country or at least slightly clean.
Read the text of the transmission and watch the video.
Then listen to the words of our employee Giovanardi Carlo, minister of the House of provisional liberty. He’s thinking of us, of our health and of that of Cremonini.
“I was amazed at the way that the Report programme tried to destroy the image of a great Italian company like Inalca of Modena, stated the Minister for the Relationships with Parliament Carlo Giovanardi – from the resurrection of the fear that consumers have for the mad cow to the supplies from abroad, from the collapse of other companies to the malicious connection of single episodes, everything has been lumped together to criminalize the companies in the group. The economic and moral damage for the company and for our country risk being incalculable: we’ll have to see who benefits from these programmes, who suggested them and who thinks they will profit financially on the national and international market, by weakening a dangerous competitor that could support world competition.”
Is it perhaps being backed by the racket of the vegetarians?
Milena Gabanelli, presenter of Report, answered: "how can the Honourable Giovanardi make out that what has been stated does not correspond to the truth?”
”The enquiry was well documented and the company in question was invited on many occasions to offer a contradicting account, exactly so as to avoid every shadow regarding the transparency of the operations. These invitations were always rejected by the Cremonini Group through their legal representative, and by letters that were read out during the programme. Perhaps the Institutions of the country do not consider serious journalism to be a resource, but simply a threat.”
I invite Cremonini, which refused to participate in the Report programme, to write something really convincing to this Blog to reassure the citizens that there are now no remaining problems about consuming their products, and to highlight the inexactitudes if they exist, in the documents used as proof byMilena Gabanelli.
Ah, I was forgetting, also send a carbon copy to the employee Giovanardi.
