News of Judicial Proceedings

un giorno in pretura.jpg

I open today's copy of the financial newspaper MF. I scan the headlines.

On page 1:
"Ricucci, offer to the PM {the magistrate}"
"Fazio has damaged Italian Banks"

On page 2:
"Brussels is now free to bring infraction proceedings against Italy for the norms regarding restrictions to the freedom on the movement of capital.”

On page 6:
“The Antitrust fines ANIA

On page 9:
Cirio, in the courtroom the crack of 1 thousand million, 25 requests for sending people for trial.”

On page 14:
Parmalat, Consob considering taking action against  Deloitte & Touche

On page 16:
Tango-bondists marching on Rome”

On page 18:
"Ricucci offers plusvalence to the PM”

On page 19:
“ Bellavista and Caltagirone under investigation for takeover bids”

On page 20:
Exposed for stock-jobbing and market abuse. Today Consorte in Bankitalia talks about OK times”

I thought I was going to be reading about finance and instead I found that I was reading a list of judicial proceedings.

There was, however, a consolation page with the “MF Company Awards” to the top people of finance and the economy: Luca Cordero, Vittorio Mincato, Paolo Scaroni, Marco Tronchetti Provera and Andrea Guerra, who haven’t yet allowed themselves to be caught.

Hi I just wanted to say that I had the opportunity today to hear Beppe Grillo at the SBS radio in australia and that what he said I think that is true...

It seems tonight it's a gorgeous night to celebrate...
Catholicism as a smoke-screen, or a ladder to climb.
Smearing money on anybody who's anybody.
And talking about hell and purgatory when the sh*t alreay hit the fan.
It does take some courage (or cowardice?) and no conscience at all.
But, but.
All is not lost, just yet :)

At least a few have been caught squarely in the face, tonight.

And no purgatory to speak of, as of tonight.
Just a couple of months in a nice, confortable cell in the prominent milanese jail.
Hoping it'll get a LOT longer a time.

Have a good day!
